Assassin Creed's Requests

from Past Exchanges

rare male slash exchange 2020

Ezio Auditore da Firenze/Leonardo da Vinci   •   Ezio Auditore da Firenze/Yusuf Tazim

Prompts

  • + Delivering other people's mail. Being asked to thrash some dude who looked at a citizen funny. Feeding and caring for the many, many pigeon coops in the city. Remembering to acquire the rare books and/or flowers requested by his love interest, being the fortified walls of an enemy estate. Just a run of the mill, day in the life of famous Assassin, Ezio Auditore.
  • + Ezio traveling all over the Mediterranean. After rumors of Cesare Borgia's movements in Spain, Ezio chases down the power-hungry would-be tyrant. Leonardo is fine with this, really. He's fine. He doesn't crave the letters that trickle in all-too-rarely from his friend. And maybe he should have said some things to Ezio when they were together. There's no time like the present. Leonardo having to woo with words when Ezio is traveling all over Italy/the Mediterranean.
  • + Plot Fix-Its. Remember that time when Assassin's Creed: Revelations killed Yusuf off-screen? Canon-divergence/fix-it fic where Yusuf could have just been gravely injured would be MUCH appreciated. Does Ezio need to track down Precursor Tech to heal Yusuf? Or maybe just help Yusuf through a long convalescence? I'd love to see some Ezio/Yusuf hurt/comfort, with a strong emphasis on Yusuf not dying off-screen, please D:
  • + What have you been dying to make? Honestly, you could write or draw me almost anything about either of these pairings; I'm so desperate for more. This includes but is not limited to: Fluff. Angst. Slice-of-life. Mission fic. Case fic. Fake Dating. "Deleted" scenes. Canon Divergence. Time Travel Fix-it fic. Everything-goes-even-wronger-than-expected fic. Porn with Plot. Unrequited Pining. Requited Pining. Undercover at [at event] where costumes and/or masks are required. Ezio attempting to instill values about the brotherhood to other assassins. Ezio flirting badly with others. Ezio not realizing he's being dated until like Date Five. Ezio asking Claudia for her advice in dating and matchmaking, and probably getting told off rather soundly.

  • Leonardo's inventions. His inventions being used for No Good by Cesare Borgia, or other would-be dictators.
  • Good-Natured Language Jokes. Yusuf's absolute boredom with the Italian language
  • Murder. Ezio casually accepting contracts to kill other people. When you have one tool in your arsenal, everything begins to look murder-shaped.
  • Downtime. How Leonardo can ask Ezio to wait for something in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and he will legit just sit on a bench for 24 hours like he's got nothing better to do. :D
  • Aging. Ezio being a creaky old man who complains when he lands badly.
  • Isu Nonsense. Ezio coming to grips with his role as "Prophet."
  • Time Travel, or Ezio *not* coming to grips with his role as Prophet, and needing to see something a little more definite about the future (& how it might affect his relationships.)
  • Precursor Tech. Any way you might want to work it into a fic. Apples of Eden. Altair's memory discs. Ezio showily defeating enemies using Precursor Tech, and then in the next breath, being able to give up the tech/not let it overwhelm his entire life is pretty fantastic. Getting trapped together in a Vault, and then having to puzzle their way out? Whoops, accidentally having sex in a Vault.

    Ezio Auditore da Firenze/Desmond Miles   •   Ezio Auditore da Firenze/Yusuf Tazim

    Prompts

  • + Slice-of-Life for Ezio Auditore. Delivering other people's mail. Being asked to thrash some dude who looked at another citizen funny. Feeding and caring for the many, many pigeon coops in the city. Acquiring rare books and/or carrying out assassination contracts requested by his love interest. Scaling the fortified walls of an enemy estate to secure an excellent date location. Just a run of the mill, day-in-the-life of famous Assassin, Ezio Auditore.
  • + All of the ways in which Ezio/Desmond can happen. Time Travel. Precursor Tech. Meeting in the Duat. I enjoy fic where Desmond time-travels back to Renaissance Italy, or to Masyaf, but I'm also into the idea of Ezio and Desmond both being pulled through time to another location. (Another AC game setting would be thrilling!). Ezio time-traveling to the future is also amazing! (Also: please don't feel like you have to explain how the time travel happens, if you're not interested in doing so!)
  • + Canon-divergence/fix-it fic. Fic where Yusuf was just gravely injured would be MUCH appreciated. Does Ezio need to track down Precursor Tech to heal Yusuf? Or maybe just help Yusuf through a long convalescence? I'd love to see some Ezio/Yusuf hurt/comfort, with a strong emphasis on Yusuf not dying off-screen, please.
  • + Trapped in a Vault. This prompt works amazingly well for Ezio/Desmond or Ezio/Yusuf. Getting trapped together in a Vault, and then having to puzzle their way out? Whoops, accidentally having sex in a Vault. I'd be thrilled to see Yusuf react to Precursor tech. As an assassin in Constantinople, who spends most of his time dealing with turf wars and civil unrest, how much does Yusuf know about the weird, mystical side of the Brotherhood? Has he ever encountered Precursor tech before?
  • + AUs and Fusions, just so long as everyone's still an Assassin, feel free to go wild with your ideas! Reality Cooking Show AU where the Assassins and Templars try to outmaneuver each other in a Hells Kitchen-style showdown? Pride and Prejudice AU where Ezio has to juggle his diffidence towards marriage with his need to fulfill his Assassination contracts? Exchanging letters across time like in the Lake House? I'm here for all of this.
  • + Voyeurism. One half of the ship (Desmond? Yusuf? Ezio??) is watching the other with a third party, or by themselves, and they get off on it. Doesn't have to be a complicated set-up; I'm a gremlin of simple tastes. Feel free to use Original Male Characters, or if you want to go nuts, maybe a taste of Ezio/Desmond/Yusuf.

    Ezio Auditore da Firenze/Desmond Miles

    Honestly, you could write me almost anything about either Ezio/Desmond; I'm so desperate for more. My one plot DNW are timeline changes/AUs where Ezio or Desmond aren't Assassins.

    Kinks that emphasize trust & control, kinks that play with the border between fear & desire

    *Note about Dubious Consent: I enjoy dubcon where both requested characters are coerced by external events/people/situations, like fuck-or-die, or precursors-made-them-do-it, etc. I also enjoy sex where characters aren't into it at first, but are fully onboard by the end.

    Bayek/Desmond Miles   •   Bayek/Solar Deity   •   Bayek/Set   •   Bayek

    Meeting people! Making friends! Murdering them! Or, Get Bayek A Boyfriend 2k20

    Prompts

  • + How come Bayek doesn’t react to any of the first civilization stuff Whenever Bayek encounters a message from the Precursors at the Siwa Temple, he acts pretty dang chill for someone watching old technology doing its thing. I’d be interested in a fic that delves into why does Bayek finds it completely normal (he’s desensitized to its wonders due to his grief over his son; or he thinks the gods are communicating something to someone else) or why he doesn’t find it normal, but still remains low-key about it (he thinks the gods are trying to communicate to him and doesn’t care about it while he’s still clouded with vengeance?). I’d love to delve into his relationship with the Precursors. Maybe he does think of them, but only after he finds peace for his son?
  • + Trapped in a Precursor Vault. As you might have gathered, I love Precursor stuff. The precursor vaults in AC: Ezio trilogy were fantastic, and would love to see more precursor vaults in Ancient Egypt. The ones that Bayek encountered didn’t seem to want anything from him, but what if he later found one of Juno or Minerva’s science experiments? Give me jumping puzzles! Give me all of the parkour in historical spaces!
  • + Bayek is traveling across the Mediterraean. I would love post-canon fic where Bayek shows up in Rome and gets caught up in further developments in Roman history.
  • + The Solar Barque. Bayek dreams of fighting Apep the soul eater on an empty solar barque, that should have seated Ra and his defenders. Where were the gods? Have they abandoned their duties? Been killed? Been defeated by Apep? I would love to read a fic about this for just Bayek like it is in the game, or any of his nominated pairings. Does Bayek have to take up the fight against Apep again? Who might he meet while he’s in the Duat?
  • + Time Travel. Desmond Miles, my perennial fave. I am constantly delighted by the prospect of him traveling through time while he’s trying to (or already has) saved the world. What if he ended up back in Siwa? He has, to my knowledge, no recollection of Ptolemaic Egypt. How well would he do if he was thrown into the past with no Animus knowledge to help him out? What would Bayek make of this stranger blundering into his home town? Would he think that he’s a Roman? Something else?
  • + In-Universe Personal Documents. Papyri, pottery shards, wax tablets. Give me anything that you think these characters would write, record, steal from enemies (or tombs), keep (or discard). Coptic, Demotic, Hieratic, and Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics are all wonderful and welcome, if you want to use other languages/writing systems.
  • Ship-Specific Prompts

  • + Bayek/Desmond Miles. Something really funky has to go down to make this ship happen; thankfully, there’s ancient Precursor tech, gods of ancient egypt, the Apple of Eden, and the Eye all ready to make that happen. I’m so curious about how Bayek would take Desmond, who’s SO OBVIOUSLY out of time, and likely not even speaking any of the local languages.
    • I’m really excited to learn more about time travel and to see characters struggling with communication barriers, but if that isn’t your jam, feel free to completely handwave the time travel and/or communication issues as stuff that Precursor tech allowed to happen, and get on with the Feels.
    • Here are two men who’ve spent a great deal of their lives (or in Desmond’s case, borrowed life), exploring the consequences of vengeance. Neither of them thought their lifepath was going to be one in the shadows. I’d be really excited to read about these two characters connecting.
    • I would also COMPLETELY love tropey romance. That stuff is my lifeblood. Fake/pretend relationships, accidental soulbonding, AUs that make Bayek and Desmond a little more proximate to each other (but they’re still assassins), Pride and Prejudice (+Assassins) AUs...all of that would be amazing. Not to mention stuff like mistaken-for-a-god fic. Accidentally-became-a-god fic. Wingfic.
  • + Bayek/Solar Deity. In AC:Origins, Bayek tracks a story of Apollo in the Halo of the Huntress, and an oracle gave a prophecy to Bayek… and this got me thinking. Who else was hot enough to be beloved of the Sun? The Eagle and the Sun are an iconic duo. Please go with the Solar deity of your choosing for this one! I am a fan of warriors falling for gods who aren’t from their pantheon, but I’m open to whatever ideas move you. Slow burn romances are good, but I’m also just into characters that set their sights on fucking the sun.
  • + Bayek/Set. You know Set would hit that.
    • Although Set and Bayek never meet in the game, I've had a hankering to ship the god of disorder and storms with the force of chaos that Bayek becomes. Game lore claims that Set is an Isu revered as a god. You could keep that background if you wish, or you can go another direction. If you're receptive to the idea, I'm into the idea that the gods and the Isu are not one and the same. Gods that pre-date or post-date the Precursors adds a layer of complexity to the Assassin's Creed worldbuilding that would be amazing to explore. If worldbuilding isn't appealing to you, I'm also cool with handwaving this whole issue!
    • How would they meet? Bayek and Set have both ridden the Solar barque and fought Apep, the serpent that devours the sun. Does Bayek have to find Set to take up his old position on the barque? Does Bayek seek him out after his experience in the Duat? Or perhaps vice versa?
    • The Egyptian gods seem to be mostly absent from AC:O, when Bayek isn't having to fight them in the DLC. Has Set retired to the desert, faded in importance, by the time Bayek goes on his quest for revenge? I dig the idea of Set being a Weird Hermit in the desert, but I'm up for anything, here.
  • + Bayek. Give me all of those canon feels. Character studies. Action-adventure fic. The Cat Petting Simulator aspect of AC:Origins. (Seriously, when you get into scritching position, you can attract SO MANY CATS.) I’m here for all of it! And if you want to serve me up Bayek masturbating sadly in the desert. I will never say no to that. ♥

    Art Likes

  • + Bayek smooching a grumpy cat. :D
  • + Ancient Egyptian Art & Motifs. Ptolemaic Egyptian Art & Motifs.
  • + Bayek in the Assassin’s hood.
  • + Isu Armor! I love the facemask, the glowing bits, the everything about it.
  • + Artwork that uses surreal imagery to depict emotional states.
  • + If you’re into it, PLEASE GIVE BAYEK A CHOCOBO THAT LOOKS RIGHT. The chocobo from AC:Origins gives me nightmares. D:
  • + Shin Hanga-inspired scenes of domestic quietude.
  • + Art Nouveau & Art Deco & Symbolist Styles and Paintings.
  • + Gold and black artworks. Gold foil. Gold leaf. Interference gold. Gold of all types. Yellows, oranges, golds, are a favorite, especially when combined with black and sometimes some accenting white or violets.
  • + Right in Front of My Salad memes for Set. It’s What He DeservesTM.
  • + Tarot card versions of requested characters, especially using imagery from the solar barque dream. Bayek holding his gold shining heart outside of his bloody body. I’M INTO IT.
  • + One of my fic prompts, but art.
  • + The Bookshelf Limbo style book previews are an especial treat for this fandom, since bound codices may or may not have been invented yet (and I'm not fussed by historical accuracy in the least)! I love the idea of finding Bayek books to help Deal With His Current Issues. I’d also be pleased to see Bayek browsing some really boss-looking scrolls. Something that would help him quiet his rage about his son? Something about grieving, loss, and recovery? Maybe some dating advice??? “The Murderer’s Guide To Getting Away With It” or “Tracking a Conspiracy: How To Find The People Who Screwed You Over.” Serious or cracky--whatever inspires you.

  • Poetry Likes

  • + Alliteration. I love alliterative long line poetry from middle English.
  • + Homeric similes.
  • + If you enjoy the challenge of writing in meter, I enjoy epic meter (dactylic hexameter).
  • + However, neither alliterative, nor epic meter is strictly required if you want to tackle poetry for me. I'm open to a range of poetic forms, as long as they capture narrative movement of some sort!
  • + If you'd like to get a sense of what kind of poetry I like, The Shield of Achilles by W.H. Auden is one of my favorite poems.
  • do not wants

    My Do Not Wants change over time for this fandom. If a DNW does not appear on my exchange signup, I've waived it or don't consider it relevant to my current request.

    Prompts

  • + Mpreg and A/B/O.This includes things like oviposition or on-screen pregnancy for requested characters. Mentions of canonical children are fine.
  • + AUs where Assassins/Hidden Ones aren't Assassins. Other than that one caveat, I'm pretty open about all kinds of AUs, including trope AUs.
  • + Snuff. These characters murder a whole lot of people. My preference is that they a) don't murder each other during sex, and b) don't get off on killing people.
  • + Kinks involving bodily fluids/discharge, (e.g. please feel free to mention sweat, tears, blood, semen, within reason. Please no scat, vomit, snot, blood-in-great-quantities kinks).
  • + Gore. I love me some violence, but I am a little squeamish. Please no viscera!
  • + Sexual or romantic situations involving anyone younger than 16. My favorite pairings involve characters that are 35+, and I generally prefer much older characters (50, or 60+) to younger ones.
