morgynleri: Imagination is intelligence having fun (imagination intelligence)
Got a list from [personal profile] nenya_kanadka.

You know that meme that goes around sometimes where you post your five favourite kinks and then five favourite couples, and it's like a wish into the universe to see if anybody will write it for you? Let's make it a little more interactive.

Comment here if you want to play,and I will give you 3-6 couples or characters that I associate with you, and you make an entry in your journal talking about those couples/characters and fics that you wish the universe would write for you.

Sam Carter

Sam in charge of SG-1. Sam in charge of Atlantis.

Sam having a chance at a romantic relationship that doesn't end in disaster. Or maybe just not pining for a romantic relationship, and being happy without one.

Sam kicking ass, taking names, and being given the recognition she deserves, instead of being shoved to the side in favor of Yet Another White Man.

Sam working with Teal'c more.

Just. Sam being her badass self without people screaming about her being a Mary Sue and horrible for being a competant and intelligent woman. (Which has stuck with me, and still makes me cranky, whether or not that sort of sentiment has died down.)

Julian Bashir

I'd love to see more exploration of Cardassian culture with Garak/Bashir fic, and how to navigate a relationship when both participants are abuse victims whose lies flow like water, who make themselves into their own masks on a regular basis, and whose lies are as important to who they are as anything else.

And I'd love to see how Julian's parents making the decision to remake him has effected his life, and how badly that hurt him, and what it does to his ability to trust anyone, including himself. How it effects his relationships with others.

Padmé Amidala

Lives. Padmé Lives.

Padmé who is in a romantic and/or sexual relationship with someone other than Anakin Skywalker (and not just in addition to). More femslash Padmé.

Hell, I'd love to see some gen-fic Padmé-centric stuff. Where relationships really aren't on her agenda, even if there are people (one or more) who are in love with her.

Padmé as mother to Leia and Luke. Padmé the Rebel. Just.


The Master

More Jacobi!Master!

I'm very fond of the idea of Jacobi!Master, though we got, like, five minutes of him in canon, if that. It ends up on the same platform as "give me more Dooku-as-played-by-Christopher-Lee, and less Dooku-as-directed-by-George-Lucas fic, damnit", except it's "give me more Jacobi!Master, and please, for love of all that's holy, do not give me more Simm!Master".

*sighs* On the other hand, I haven't been a lot into Doctor Who in years, so there may actually be more of what I want out there that I just haven't gone looking for because I have other fandoms to play in.

anything Harry Potter related

Harry gets therapy.

What fucking epilogue, please, please, let's pretend that doesn't exist.

Magical America - North and South - that utterly ignores Rowling's racism and poor research.

Hell, more of Magical Africa and Magical Asia and Magical Australia, and how they work, and whether or not the Statute of Secrecy even applies there, and what people who actually live there think about how things would work in different places and with different peoples.

More expansions on minor characters. (Millicent Bulstrode is my favorite, and half of that is because I can do just about anything with her character, and it could readily fit into book-canon or movie-canon.)

AUs which ignore Rowling's expanded universe, and do worldbuilding in a completely different direction.
morgynleri: Learn from everyone, follow no one, watch for patters, and work like hell (learn watch work)

15. Open or closed relationship? Do they sometimes share?

Star Wars, Tolkien, Farscape, Babylon 5, Avengers Cinematic Universe, Harry Potter, Stargate (SG-1 & Atlantis)

(And yes, you can specify AU if you'd like, since I do tend to have a number of them. Though I will probably answer by whatever AU has the particular pairing.)

Comment here if you want to play, and I will give you three-six couples that I associate with you, and you make an entry in your journal talking about those couples and fics that you wish the universe would write for you.

I commented to [personal profile] idontlikegravy and she gave me:


My muses like to throw things at me that I have no idea what to do with at first, and this started as one of those things. Just. In the AU I had not intended to write more of, it worked, and not because of the other changes I made in that AU. (Agnu Ra Nutû, for those interested.)

I like a Nori who is unapologetic about what and who he is, and isn't going to change for anyone, not even those he loves. I like a Thorin, who while he has all the issues of Durin family FEELS, isn't going to go all sappy or soppy over anyone. Love between them, but neither of them are going to let being in love with each other stop them from doing what they have to do - and making the hard decisions, if it comes to that.

Seeing more of that? Would be awesome. And if it includes a Nori who isn't monogamous, or a third with them, I wouldn't object to pretty much any dwarf who isn't closely related (or non-dwarf characters) being the one involved.


The fascination of this pairing is that it can be done without disturbing canon too much - although I will use just about any excuse to keep Boromir alive, and this provides one that works very well for me. And Éowyn isn't going to let being in Gondor and married to Boromir stop her from being a warrior and a damned good one at that. Boromir is (probably) not fool enough to try to stop her from keeping in practice, though he's going to do his best to make sure she never has to use that practice with blade and bow and horse for war.

It's also fun because it's a rare pairing (like the other two here, actually *smiles*), and so most of those who write it are writing stuff that's pretty good. Still, I wish there were just more of it, no matter if it's fitted around canon and Boromir dies, or canon is used as a reference while building an AU around the pairing.


I don't think it works with early Willow, but later Willow, the one who is exploring her magic more completely, and who has seen and touched darkness, it works so very well. She's the strength to see Methos's darker side and not flinch away. She's also intelligent enough and powerful enough to intrigue Methos, and that's enough to start from.

Although the AU I'm working with this pairing in skews more toward them as a non-romantic-romance, if that makes sense? There's physical attraction, there's compatibility of minds, there's a friendship, there's even love, but they're never really in love, as it were. Which is honestly the sort of relationship I have the most fun with, anyway.

I'd love to see more of post-series Willow and post-series Methos getting together, even just as friends, and how the relationship develops. Though I'm not terribly interested in them having any sort of shared info-dump (Methos telling Willow about Immortals, Willow telling Methos about demons), but more an unfolding of the exchange of knowledge over time. And more with Willow's magic interacting with Methos's Quickening, and how other people see that working.

Snagged from [personal profile] a_lanart.

Post the first sentence(or 3) from every WIP you're currently working on, even if it's very short. Then invite people to ask questions about your WIPs. With any luck, the motivation to take that WIP one step closer to completion will appear as if by magic!

If I posted all of them, it would become an extremely long list. But a selection of them, at least. Fandoms vary, and there are some original works in there as well. Ask away!

18 WIPs out of 169 )

Prompts: Magnificent Seven; Chris/Vin; untamed, fealty, homecoming, peace, future

Genres: Alternate Universe, Future, Historical, Crossover

Rating: Teen
Characters: Chris Larabee, Vin Tanner, Ezra Standish, Buck Wilmington, Josiah Sanchez, JD Dunne
Word Count:

Notes: Although the prompt was Chris/Vin, the others snuck in around the edges. I have never managed to write Chris before, and I've not even tried to write Chris/Vin, so this was a challenge in prodding at Chris more than Vin. I also have a penchent for AUs, which meant that some element thereof pretty much was a given.

Summary: Five snippets of Chris & Vin (and the others).

Desert Rocks and Lawmen )

Prompts: Highlander; Marcus Constantine; longing, simple, jealous, conceal, knowledge

Title: Scrolls and Artifacts
Fandom: Highlander, Mythology (Middle Eastern)
Genres: Crossover
Rating: Teen
Characters: Marcus Constantine
Word Count:

Notes: Mostly sticking close to canon, although there are elements of crossover that tie back to my Darius/Anat stories in "Simple". Also, my Marcus Constantine muse is good at brevity.

Summary: Glimpses of Marcus Constantine, mostly in single sentences.

Scrolls and Artifacts )

Harry Potter
Shakespeare's Henry V

Stargate Atlantis
Iron Man (movie-verse)
X-Men (movie-verse, no First Class)

Also, for those who've access to my original fiction, anything from:
