Since the fall of SHIELD, Melinda has been avoiding Natasha. Natasha’s given her time, but enough is enough. Unfortunately, the conversation doesn’t go as she would’ve liked it to.

This was my gift for Rare Pair Fest. The author has a fantastic Melinda May voice and the fic captures something that feels very true to these two women. I like that it’s angsty but with an undercurrent of hopefulness.

Rarepairfest Letter!

Thank you, author, for loving one (or more) of these ships as much as I do! I don’t have a lot of squicks, but for the purposes of this exchange I’d really prefer happy endings – it can take as much angst as you like to get there if you’re so inclined, just as long as things end reasonably well. The one exception to that is Kirigiri/Junko; feel free to be as dark as you want on that one. I am squicked by guro and serious permanent disfigurement, though, so I guess maybe not quite that dark (canon stuff like Kirigiri’s scars is just fine, I just don’t want any new major injuries that won’t heal; I’m mostly squicked by like, forced amputation or eye-gouging or stuff like that).

As far as general likes, I love tropey idfic stuff so if you wanted to throw out all my vaguely canon-connected prompts and write me a/b/o or other kinky universes or magical lesbian pregnancy or anything like that, feel free! I am comfortable receiving porn for any and all of these pairings, if you’re so inclined, but if you don’t want to write porn that’s a-okay too! And if you see a prompt for one pairing that you think would work well with a different pairing I’ve requested, feel free to use it! I also really like physical gestures of affection.

On to individual prompts!

For my part, this letter to try to help out a little and give you a few ideas of what I like, but keep in mind that I’m going to love whatever you come up with.
