Craft Sequence - Max Gladstone
The King in Red (Craft Sequence - Max Gladstone), Tara Abernathy (Craft Sequence - Max Gladstone), Group: Caleb Altemoc & Temoc Almotil, Elayne Kevarian (Craft Sequence - Max Gladstone), AU - Canon Divergence, Canon Style Plot, Darkfic, Worldbuilding

I was a bit surprised to see the path Tara took during Four Roads Cross. What is it like being a Craftswoman and a priestess of the goddess Seril? How dies Tara reconcile the two? What sort of public reaction is there to Tara – a Craftwoman, representative of the god Kos (though perhaps not for much longer) and a priestess of the newly resurrected Seril? What is her relationship like with Seril? How does the world take to Seril being back and how does Tara handle that? Does Seril visit her anymore or is she too 'big' for that?

I really liked the mentoring relationship depicted between Tara and Elayne – so more mentoring! Maybe even they just go out for a casual drinks and the evening turns out to be a bit more exciting than that? (A craftswoman's job is never done...) I really enjoyed reading about their relationship, how Elayne saw so much potential in Tara (she fought back, so maybe even a scene from Elayne's perspective before Tara was thrown out of her school). Perhaps a scene when they're on opposite sides of a negotiating table especially both Four Roads Cross. How does Elayne take Tara being Seril's priestess? I'd love to see more of Elayne's back story – from when she was a young soldier during the heat and blood of the Wars to how her viewpoint changed and developed over the years.

It was an unexpected delight to have Tara and Caleb interact in Four Roads Cross. How do they work together in the future? Or working together on a case together! Perhaps discussing the different magic systems in the world. Maybe Caleb is setting up a new branch in Alt Coulumb? Maybe Tara does Caleb a favour? Perhaps they go back and rescue Shale? Tara acts for Caleb in negotiations with the King in Red? Tara takes a vacation and Caleb tries to drag her into one of his messes? Or vice versa!

I love how dark and complicated Caleb and Temoc's relationship can be at times. How does Caleb deal with the aftermath of what his father did to him? In a city where the leader (and many other people) see his father a terrorist? A relic of another time? Judging from what we know, he was visited by his father over the years so it would be wonderful to see how Caleb copes with the aftermath and how Temoc continues to battle between trying to be a father to his son (failing, of course) and defending his Gods and his people. Maybe even Temoc's reaction to Caleb going to work for the King in Red (because I can totally see the King in Red holding that over Temoc's head, taunting him in not so subtle ways). Caleb growing (physically) older than Temoc, as the world moves faster and faster beyond Temoc's ways. What sort of impact does Temoc have on Caleb starting up Two Serpents? I think it could be interesting to have the King in Red in their story as well, considering what an impact he has had on both of their lives. A petty fight between the King in Red and Temoc could be pretty amusing to read about especially if it involves years of planning. Or if you want to go dark – Temoc and the King and Red dealing with the aftermath of Caleb's slow decline and eventual death.

How often have Elayne and the King and Red worked together in the past? (well not often since the events of Last First Snow, probably…) Two old soldiers reminiscing… and arguing. Maybe even further discussions on being a skeleton and how the impacts things? Elayne seems to have pretty deliberate starts to stave the process off, meanwhile the King In Red just let it happen. A consequence of their different perspectives. Perhaps discussing the events of Four Roads Cross? Do they ever work together again? What is their perspective on Temoc and Tara?

The Divine Cities Series - Robert Jackson Bennett
Turyin Mulaghesh (The Divine Cities Series - Robert Jackson Bennett), Sigrud je Harkvaldsson (The Divine Cities Series - Robert Jackson Bennett), Shara Komayd (The Divine Cities Series - Robert Jackson Bennett), Vinya Komayd (The Divine Cities Series - Robert Jackson Bennett), AU - Canon Divergence, Canon Style Plot, Darkfic, Mystery/Procedural, Worldbuilding

Shara Komayd & Vinya Komayd - Anything over the years that shows their somewhat fucked relationship. We've seen Shara's perspective, possibly something from Vinya's perspective? Perhaps Shara has to deal with Vinya creating more problems pre-series, starting to see that Vinya's burning ambition was focused truly on herself and how she manipulated the world around her. Or set in the future when Shara is Prime Minister and Vinya has had her graceful fall. I can't imagine Vinya taking that well, especially now that Shara has so much to lose.

The rise and fall of Vinya Komayd could be be pretty interesting. She has her fingers in so many places it is hard to imagine her as someone who started, well not at the bottom, but she is a Komayd. What was Vinya like when she was young? Was she always set on being in power? (not necessarily Prime Minister, but I see that as the means to the ends for her). What was it like when Shara's parents died and she was suddenly the main caregiver for Shara? How did this change her perspective on what she was doing? Did it at all? Something epistolary like the novels could be interesting as well – a Ministry report of what Turyin did on the Continent or Vinya approving Turyin being the Govern of Bukilov. Considering Tuyrin's bloody past – did Vinya expect Turyin to be more of an ally? Or a report about Sigrud. I imagine Vinya was fairly pleased to see the Dreyling states to be leaderless, all the better for Saypur. A side element exploring the relationship between the two nations would be interesting. Saypur really seems to have gotten the Divine Empire's foot over other countries, though even that might be the perspective of the main character's.

What did Vinya feel when Shara broke the National Party scandal? How much did she supervise Shara's training as an operative? Vinya is a bit like the Divinities in some ways (much to her horror) in that she rewrites history. She doesn't quite have the power to edit people's memories, but she certainly uses propaganda.

I'd love to see an earlier (mis)adventure or a moment between Sigrud and Shara where they're just in tune with one another, solving another case? I really liked how they worked together, how much trust they had in each other. Perhaps something along the lines of a mission going badly and Shara has to rescue Sigrud. I really did love the world building and the idea of Divine artifacts, so perhaps they have to deal with the political/social/emotional fallout from the artifact? They're both dedicated to their missions, to the detriment of their selves, this is one element that could be interesting to see explored. There's hints to some of the dark actions they've done over the years – perhaps a story about what they did? Or, perhaps something epistolary – letters not sent during Shara's time as Prime Minister?

Turyin dealing with Shara's political machinations at the end of City of Blades, possibly? I would love a scene between Turyin and Shara, after Turyin realises exactly what sort of mess Shara has dumped her in. Perhaps they retreat to Shara's country estate and it is all knife and daggers since Shara is still a political exile. Maybe even dealing with something unexpectedly Divine while they're there? What was their relationship like after Shara left (or was forced to leave) office?

I love the interplay between the steampunk/industrial setting and the Divine so please feel free to explore that element through the characters as well!

The Bear and the Nightingale - Katherine Arden
Vasilisa Petrovna (The Bear and the Nightingale - Katherine Arden), Morozko (The Bear and the Nightingale - Katherine Arden), Konstantin Nikonovich (The Bear and the Nightingale - Katherine Arden), Anna Ivanovna (The Bear and the Nightingale - Katherine Arden), AU - Canon Divergence, Canon Style Plot, Darkfic, Worldbuilding

This was a very charming book and I was surprised but pleased to see that it is getting a sequel. I loved the world building, the deep immersion of fairy tales in every day life, the challenges that Vasilisa faces as she forges her own in path. I would love to see what sort of adventure that she does get up to in the future, flashbacks to when she was a child, or even returning home after a long time away. What sort of adventures does she get up to in Constantinople? Or further east or west?

She has a very interesting nature, only hinted at during the books, what sort of self discovery does she have? Does she meet her grandmother? Will she continue to age like a mortal? Or becoming something like Morozko? He's obviously a much diminished figure, as the new god dominates the landscape, and it doesn't look like his presence is really going to return to his former glory. How does he reconcile that? A fading figure, powers weaker with every winter. What sort of powers does he lose over time? Does his memory fade as well?

I was fairly intrigued by Anna Ivanovna. She's initially presented as a fairly sympathetic figure – haunted by the spectrals she can see, driven mad by isolation and then foisted on a man when she thought she was so close to peace and quiet. She then rapidly becomes one of derision, disliked by all, treated with respect only because of her position. I found it very interesting that she was never called a nickname by anyone, when practically everyone has at least one. She's very isolated, but not justified in her actions. And her only misery has aged her. Considering she's only in the her mid-late teens when she is married, I found it slightly bewildering that Konstantin considered her an aged matron when she was at most in her mid-late twenties. He was scarcely that much younger! I suppose a happier ending for her, a happier timeline would be interesting to see

Old Kingdom - Garth Nix
Lirael (Old Kingdom - Garth Nix), Sabriel (Old Kingdom - Garth Nix), Nicholas Sayre (Old Kingdom - Garth Nix), AU - Canon Divergence, Canon Style Plot, Mystery/Procedural, Worldbuilding

I do love culture shock (either Nicholas in the Old Kingdom, or if Lirael had to visit Ancelstierre, or even Mogget, now that he's unbound). I always love the culture clash in the Old Kingdom series – between the 1920's themed Ancelstierre and the rather medieval at times Kingdom, so it would be great to see that explored as well. I would like a fic exploring their new roles and identities and how that impacts them. A comedy of errors depicted between Nick and Lirael would be fun to see. Nick has more experience of polite society – in Ancelstierre, but considering his age I imagine he's not quite as worldly as he wants to appear – and Lirael has spent several years barely talking to anyone other than the Dog.

Lirael growing into her new role. She has some unresolved feelings about being a Daughter of the Clayr, how does she cope when she has to go back to Glacier? (again) Nick wanting to know more about the Old Kingdom and how he's going to fit into it with his Charter + Free Magic powers. He's really quite strange and in ways he had never thought about before.

Or one of Lirael's adventures during her Third Assistant Librarian days? I would love to see the Great Library explored in more depth, Lirael secretly keeping Free Magic creatures at bay while the rest of the Clayr is too occupied over the Nine Day Watches. What dark histories has Lirael glimpsed in the lower levels?

I would love to see a mentoring relationship between Lirael and Sabriel, finding strengths in each other and getting to know each other. This could fit for either Lirael or Sabriel, but what happens after the events of either Sabriel/Abhorsen and they're a newly minted Abhorsen/Abhorsen-in-Waiting, going out on their lonesome… battling the Dead! Fighting Free Magic necromancers! Dealing with a resurgent North! There's so much unexplored dread in the Old Kingdom series.

For Sabriel alone – there's quite a gap between the end of Sabriel and when we see glimpses of her in Lirael. What sort of adjustment did she have as she settled into the Old Kingdom? How did she keep up her relationships with her old friends? How did her relationship with Touchstone develop between their duties? How do the people of the Old Kingdom take to the new political situation? The Old Kingdom series really goes well with casefic so that would be a gem to receive!

Yuri!!! on Ice (Anime)
Group: Victor Nikiforov/Yuri Plisetsky, AU - Canon Divergence, AU - Genre Shift, AU - SciFi / Fantasy Elements, Darkfic, Hurt/Comfort

I hadn't really considered this as a pairing until recently and then the dirtywrongness hit me and well here we are. I rather like the idea that Victor/Yuuri still being end game and Victor is, unintentionally or just being thoughtless, playing with Yuri's feelings. Yuri's a bundle of teenage emotions and hormones and desperate for success. Victor's consumed with his own legacy and sees Yuri has someone who might have potential, but how many other skaters has Victor seen try and fail? Victor is an impossible element at his age – still skating professionally, but even he has to see that the end is closer than the beginning. How does that influence is relationship with Yuri? How did Yuri see Victor as he grew up? Victor's dominated the sport for some time and Yuri likes to work for something, against something.

This is a prompt where canon divergence could be really interesting. Victor and/or Yuuri skips the banquet, Victor retires the season before, Yuri has to delay his senior debut.

I think it would be interesting, considering the canon, to have an element focusing on the demands of the sport. On the mind and the body. Victor's been a national hero for how long now? Has that impacted his longevity in the sport? What sort of professional obligations does he have that we (the viewers) don't really see on the screen? How does that impact on Yuri when Victor goes to Japan?

Victor braids Yuri's hair. Hero worship, praise kink, spanking, height difference, power dynamics… all appreciated. Professional jealousy! Anything involving barre practice, all those mirrors, would also be appreciated

Eternal Sky Trilogy - Elizabeth Bear
Samarkar (Eternal Sky Trilogy), Edene (Eternal Sky Trilogy), AU - Canon Divergence, Canon Style Plot, Character Development, Worldbuilding

I loved the world building in the Eternal Sky series and if you wanted to explore that, or delve deeper (stories of old skies etc) I would greatly appreciate that! I love how the world building mirrors some of the geography/history of the Silk Road. I find the history of the Silk Road pretty fascinating so it was a joy to read the Eternal Sky series and if you want to develop some of the world building in that direction, I think that would be interesting.

I would love to see how these characters become closer as they rebuild after the events of the third book. Samarkar conducting treaties, discovering more about what it means to be a Wizard, perhaps even going home to a place she must scarcely recognise. What strange and marvelous things does she discover on her journeys? How do her magical/scholarly abilities develop? Do stories, legends of her race ahead of her? Edene leading her people, in a world far from her childhood. How does she cope with the legacy? Of raising several children while securing her son's future? Where does she see herself, find herself once her son is grown?

If you want to write a shippy fic between Edene and Samarkar, I'd love that as well.

Veronica Mars & Keith Mars

I really, really love these two and their obvious love and affection for each other. I love Keith Mars in and of himself—this hardworking, mostly-lawful good, intelligent man who’s raised his daughter the best way he knows how. I adore them. I’d love more family interactions between the two of them, at any point.

What’s a time Keith was scared for Veronica? How’s he dealing with Logan after the events of the movie? They aren’t nominated together, but I’m very interested in how he’s going to come to terms with Logan back in Veronica’s life.

What’s a time Keith had to really defend Veronica? I love Papa Wolf Keith and how fiercely they protect each other. Bonus points if Veronica’s actually in the wrong and Keith’s fighting to protect her anyway.

Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls

Oh, the ship to end all ships. I just adore these two together. Anything you can give me: pre-relationship, post-movie, AUs, smut, sex….anything is wonderful. I love the snark between these two, and that they both had to grow up a lot to function like Real Humans. I love how Logan is always trying to overcome his "darkness" and Veronica has to do her best to resist her own inner demons.

I’d love to see something post-canon where Logan and Veronica are investigating a mystery together. Anything that turns standard noir tropes on its head is is SO much fun (Logan, homme fatale, has to use his masculine wiles to get them a lead, etc.)

I’m always into a genre/setting shift. Put them in space! Make it a western! Do both! Whatever your heart fancies.

Veronica Mars/Don Lamb

Okay, so someone nominated this and I’m….conflicted about my sudden intense interest. I really like Don as a character and a villain, especially after the events of “Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner” in the second season. (The ending of that episode was actually one of my favorite gut-punches of the series.)

SO, in the event that the third season never happened, I am extremely interested to read about:

What happens if Veronica has to work with Don on a case? What happens if she discovers more of his past? Can they just save a bunch of abused kids together? You don’t have to excuse how he’s treated her, of course—he’s an asshole to Veronica—but I’d like to see them at least develop a momentary truce or understanding. Feel free to keep this gen if you like.

Shameless, ridiculous, tropey, one-night-stand hatesex.

Group: Doug Eiffel & Renée Minkowski, Action/Adventure, Angst, Canon Style Plot, Character Development, Darkfic, Humor, Hurt/Comfort, Interpersonal Drama, Mystery/Procedural, Slice of Life, Worldbuilding

I’ve recently gotten into this podcast and it’s safe to say I absolutely adore it. All of the characters are ridiculously well-drawn and complex. I adore moral ambiguity and how no one is 100% a villain or 100% a hero. Humor and levity thrown in with ethical dilemmas and sometimes really dark turning points? Right up my alley.

Doug Eiffel & Renée Minkowski

The Minkowski & Eiffel relationship is really one of the pillars that the whole show is based on (he never stopped calling her Commander!) and I just can’t even. I love the loyalty between them, the way they appreciate each other, the way Mikowski’s Lawful Good depends on Eiffel’s Chaotic Good for support.

Also, I love everyone in this podcast, so the more characters you’d like to throw in, the better.

I’d love some pre-canon stuff with how Eiffel and Minkowski’s relationship developed. Give me wacky, pre-series hijinks. Give me their first real emergency. Give me Minkowski slowly losing her grip on professional behavior and leading up to her sedating Hilbert and Eiffel for that week. Anything is amazing.

Platonic hurt/comfort between Eiffel and Minkowski would also be great. Eiffel’s basically the moral center of the Hephaestus…I’d love anything that involves them coming to terms with the fact that Lovelace died to save Eiffel, basically, and Minkowski shot Maxwell.

Anything with this crew would be amazing, tbh. Wacky space-fun, aliens, or just mundane capers (The Quest for a Hot Shower, the Day Eiffel got That Mystery Song Stuck in Everyone’s Head, or that Time Eiffel and Hera hid the Noisemaker in Minkowski’s Quarters!) that get ridiculously intense.

Superheroes and Catholic guilt! Sign me up!

I really enjoy the themes of morality and absolution in this series. Give me more please.

If you want to do any kind of connection with the broader Defenders ‘verse and any characters mentioned therein, you will be my hero forever. I really love everyone (except Karen, I know I know—I don’t mind her in background or in a minor role, but please no major focuses on Karen and definitely no love triangles.)

Foggy Nelson/Marci Stahl

This relationship is so interesting to me and I’ve been dying to know more about them. Foggy’s the moral heart of this series—how on earth does he end up with someone like Marci? I really enjoy the idea that Foggy’s got some kind of sex-god allure and/or something that keeps drawing Marci into his orbit. I love that she’s so into him too and that he makes her a better person. It’s a really interesting role reversal.

What are they getting up to over the course of season 2? Are they together? Missing moments would be great.

What happens post-season, now that Foggy’s working for a major firm? Is Marci gleeful about him joining ‘the dark side’ (only to realize nothing’s changed and Foggy’s still Foggy?)

Matt Murdock & Foggy Nelson

Again, Foggy Nelson as the moral heart of the universe. Matt trying to get moral absolution from Foggy. I’d also love competence kink! Foggy Nelson being a bad ass lawyer, or an AU with him going against Matt in court for some reason. WHO KNOWS.

*cough* Catholic Priest AU. Foggy and Matt join the seminary instead of law school.

You can go serious if you want, with something addressing the ethical/moral dilemmas of Plot Points, or choose an aspect of surviving the apocalypse that hasn't been addressed. I'm a sucker for survival problem-solving stories and minor, quiet victories. Or if you want to write something lighter I would love a fic where the kids just get to act their age and do silly kid things for once. Or maybe sit around and get drunk/take a respite from all of the drama.

Clarke Griffin/Bellamy Blake
Clarke Griffin & Bellamy Blake

Ohhh, these two together. Apocalypse Power Couple OTP! I'm into it. I really love how they went from antagonists to growing to trust each other, to co-leaders, to...well, wherever they are now. Feel free to make this shippy or gen depending on what you prefer, though!

Fic with themes of seeking absolution and forgiveness for the Things I've Done even if the person pardoning me is really just as bad (or worse).

Clarke has to send Bellamy on another dangerous/deadly mission tomorrow and there's very little chance he'll come back safe.

Futurefic where they've just embraced their role as co-leaders of the apocalypse and what that looks like. (To be honest, I'd read a 5k fic where they just have to sit and mediate a minor/mundane conflict, for once.)

A quiet moment where they can just have a respite from war and Surviving the Apocalypse. Can they just get that drink together? Or play a game? Have a damn nap??

Abby Griffin/Marcus Kane

Like I said. Lady of the Apocalypse/Her Right Hand Man. Ths show has it in spades. Although Henry Ian Cusick may be a certain percentage to blame for this request.

I really enjoy how these two have grown together and went from being directly opposed to being friends and allies. You also get an interesting character arc for Abby where it turns out she may not be the best fit for Chancellor because she's far too reactive and has a difficult time making the emotionally-removed, morally-compromised choice-- and Kane might be a surprisingly gifted politician/have grown into the role of chancellor/ambassador. I'm into it.

Kane and Abby manage to sneak visits to see each other between Arkadia/Polis. ("Kane's the one indulgence Abby keeps just for herself...")

Worldbuilding! Kane still keeps aspects of/rituals of the "Eden Tree" faith that he was raised in. I'm actually super interested in the religion/aspects of culture that were developed on the Ark as opposed to the Ground. The Eden Tree religion is basically dropped after the early seasons, so I'd love to see how it translates when the Arkadians finally end up on the ground.

Again, relying on each other, loyalty, assisting or worrying when one is on a dangerous mission.

Or more quiet moments and/or h/c.

OKAY

I try to be pretty brief when I write these things, because pretty brief prompts are the kind I like to receive! BUT I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT DRAGON AGE!!!

Basically, in every single playthrough I've ever done, I have CHOSEN LIFE. Fuck sacrificing myself to the dragon god of old: that old warden can do that after I convince Alastair to bang Morrigan. Fuck sacrificing Hawke in the Fade: random moustache guy can die instead. I CHOOSE LIFE.

So basically what I'm looking for here, whichever pairing you write, is pragmatism, success, and banter.

For Alastair/Female Inquisitor, maybe after DAI, he invites her to Ferelden to stay indefinitely now that she's castleless, and they end up falling in super-romantic love and it's really dumb but crucially he's an excellent king?

For Fenris/Female Hawke—this is a tragedy for which I apologise, but I'd really like her to convince him EVENTUALLY that maybe rotting corpses are not the ideal bedroom ornamentation and HE DESERVES BETTER. At the very least, he could take them to a taxidermist.

For Dorian/Cullen: the thing is. The thing is that I appreciate that Dorian makes the choice in-game to go back to Tevinter and attempt to make his homeland a better place, and in light of that he should take Cullen with him, plus maybe some dogs. Or, he should stay in Orlais, go to spas with Vivienne, write witty letters to the Inquisitor, and set up home with Cullen in the Emerald Graves after they've gotten all the dead things out of that one murder mansion.

X-Men (Alternate Timeline Movies)
Group: Erik Lehnsherr/Magda (XMA), Group: Erik Lehnsherr & Nina (XMA), AU - Canon Divergence, Fix-it fic, Getting Together, Slice of Life

Erik/Magda - I'd love a fic about how they got together. It seems like such a stretch, post-DoFP Erik meeting this human woman and deciding to settle down with her. I'd love a fic about their first night together, and why he told her who he was immediately, and where they go from there.

Erik & Nina - I'd love anything about Erik becoming a dad, anything about his relationship with Nina. How did Erik feel when Magda became pregnant? What were his doubts and fears? Did they dispel when Nina was born, or gradually go away as she grew - or did they actually increase the older she got? When and how did she manifest, and what kind of trouble did she get into with all of her animal friends? (Conversely, what kind of trouble did she get out of with their help?)

For something plottier, I would LOVE to read a canon divergent fic where Erik's family escapes the woods confrontation free and clear...and then Apocalypse come anyway. How do things change when Erik isn't drowning in grief and rage, but is instead desperate with fear for his family? And if Apocalypse comes and Nina is there, does he take an interest in her? (Imo, the guy who wants dominion over mankind would definitely appreciate dominion over the animals as well...)

Alternately, a fic where Erik's family lives but Apocalypse doesn't come at all could be really interesting. How does the woods confrontation go? Does Erik get arrested? If he does, what happens then? Do they get out of Poland and go to ground, and if so, where? (I always assume Charles' house, but it doesn't have to be.)

Do Not Wants: Noncon/dubcon. If the fic is canon divergent, please don't kill Nina. (If you wanted to explore a fic about Erik & Nina in the wake of Magda's death, I can handle that as long as the fic is gen after her death - so no Charles/Erik, and no hints in that direction either, please.) If Charles appears in the story, please don't portray him as walking.

How I Met Your Mother
Group: Tracy McConnell/Ted Mosby (HIMYM), AU - Canon Divergence, Established Relationship, Fix-it fic, Fluff, Humor, Hurt/Comfort

Ted/Tracy - what I always ask for for them is fix-it fic where Tracy doesn't die, and that's what I want here, too. I'd love to see more of their relationship as it develops, more of their life together...I'd even love a fic about Tracy's battle with [insert illness here], and how she, Ted, and their family come through that.

I always loved HIMYM's time travel gags and so on, so I'd also be down with a fic that explores that, either in a cracky way or more seriously. I've always been sort of fascinated with the end of the episode The Time Travelers - that one in particular I'd love to see played straight. What would Ted REALLY say to Tracy if he went back in time? Would it be "blah blah I wish I could have 45 more days with you" or would it be "I know [insert disease here] doesn't run in your family, but the doctor said if we'd caught it a year earlier you would probably have made it, so like...get checked out around [date], okay?"

Do Not Wants: Noncon/dubcon, Ted/Robin.

Terminator Genisys
Group: Sarah Connor & Pops (Terminator Genisys), Group: Sarah Connor & Pops & Kyle Reese (Terminator Genisys), AU - Canon Divergence, Canon Style Plot, Character Development, Humor

Sarah & Pops - I'd love a story about kid!Sarah adjusting to being on the run with a machine, and learning about her destiny as John's mother. It's clear there was a lot of push and pull there, that Sarah clearly isn't thrilled about anything to do with destiny, so I'd love to read anything about how she comes to terms with what her life is meant to be. Did Pops ever try to give her a more "normal" life, enrolling her in school and so on? Did Sarah ever make a run for it to try to get away from him? Did they have a lot of quiet years, or did Skynet constantly sent machines to try to kill her?

Sarah & Pops & Kyle - how do Sarah and Kyle adjust to a peaceful 2017, when Pops himself is already totally adjusted to it? I bet they're both freaked out by things like the internet and smart phones and facebook - for very similar reasons, even though Sarah's from the 80s and Kyle's from that bleak future. So I'd love to read a fic that's just the both of them trying to learn how to live a peaceful life while surrounded by all this very suspicious technology (and meanwhile, Pops spends 75% of every day playing Farmville, and insisting that "Social media is not Skynet, Sarah Connor.")

Alternately, what if Skynet comes anyway? How does that happen, and what do they do to stop it? DO they stop it? Or is that aspect of the future something that can't be avoided or changed after all?

What if Skynet comes anyway, and wipes out most of humanity, and Kyle and Sarah decide to have John anyway...but the baby turns out to be a girl?

Alternately, instead of grown up Kyle showing up, maybe young Kyle does. Maybe Pops and Sarah have to raise him...or maybe Pops has to raise them both. Maybe young Kyle shows up early, and then older Kyle shows up too, and there are two of them. Or maybe something happens and there are two Sarahs! Really, any version of this scenario would make me happy - I love doppelganger fic and "young version of character randomly appears" fic, and imo Genisys is ripe for both.

Do Not Wants: Noncon/dubcon, incest.

World War Z - Max Brooks
Original Characters, Canon Style Plot, Character Development, Worldbuilding

Zombies are one of my favorite things ever, so basically what I would like is a story about something that happened during World War Z. Maybe a story about online penpals/girlfriends who set out to find each other after most of the fighting is over. Maybe a story about a guy, stranded in the middle of nowhere with his young daughter, and how he fights to protect her and get them both to safety. Maybe a story of how a girl, after the death of her parents, made their home into a safehouse for those who needed it, and held it against the zombie hordes until help arrived. Or basically anything else, tbh. If you already have an idea in mind, feel free to write that instead. Zombie apocalypse scenarios are one of my favorite things to read about in any incarnation, so you really can't go wrong here.

Do Not Wants: Noncon/dubcon.
