Emerald City (TV 2016) - Dorothy Gale, Lucas/Roan

First of all, thank you for writing for me!
Generally, I'm drawn to small fandoms anyway, and in some cases, Yuletide is my only chance to read fic that I haven't written myself, so there is at least one perennial fandom of mine on this list.
I know some people like to have bullet points and lists and prompts, but all prompts are, of course, optional. I just want you to have as much fun writing your story as I'm going to have reading it.
Female characters. Strong, capable, competent, caring, flawed. I have a massive competency kink which is pretty much doubled when it involves women, and I adore the trope of capable women and the still capable but slightly broken men who pretty much worship the ground they walk on.
Stories that explore the relationships between characters, whether those are romantic or not. I am never going to tire of stories about loyalty and trust, partners who have each other's backs, found families that are small and broken but still good. People who love each but can still call each other on their shit, and male characters who actually trust the woman in their lives to know their own minds and their own limitations.
Stoic characters who hide so much beneath the surface (especially if they're female). Smart characters who might occasionally do stupid things for the right reasons. Broken characters who just keep on going out of sheer stubbornness because they just can't quit. I don't mind if it's casefic or shipfic, plot or porn or a combination of all of them, but I'm largely in fandom for the characters and what they mean to each other so I would love anything that explores that in any of the fandoms I've requested.
I especially love relationships that are all about the unspoken bonds, where a quiet touch or a simple exchange means so much, so even shipfic doesn't need to be all romantic declarations of love.
I like happy endings, but I don't mind if they're bitter sweet. I enjoy hurt-comfort and injury is fine as long as it's not permanent and doesn't result in death. And if you want to go the porn route (and you're under no obligation to do so, but, you know, porn :D), I like stories that focus on female pleasure and I have a particular fondness for threesomes, cunning linguists :D and pegging, plus fem!dom (with male subs) as long as it doesn't involve humiliation or significant pain.
I don't have many hard do not wants, but the things below are pretty much guaranteed to stop me from being able to read your story:
- I have a massive second hand embarrassment squick, so please, no humiliating characters or having them embarrass themselves.
- non-con, whether that's actual, implied or somehow averted, unless it's happened in canon (and even then, I'd prefer it wasn't the focus of the story)
- death fic, although I'm okay with a story dealing with the aftermath if it happened in canon.
