Random challenge
Okay, I need to break out of my rut here. I'm entirely stuck in my head, going round and round about whether I've got the time passage right in TNP. I believe that to be the definition of "stuck."

So, instead of mucking around where I've been a hundred times, let's try something new. Challenges in fandoms I don't generally write in. (But obviously, I have to know them!) So... let's go for ten, in Buffyverse, Percy Jackson, actual classical mythology, Agent Carter, Fame, or some other thing (not Star Wars, Quantum Leap, HP, or HG) that I've forgotten to mention here.

  1. Anna Jarvis knows very well how her husband is spending his time while Howard is on the run. What she doesn't get is why he doesn't tell her. She'd love to meet Peggy. for yalumesse
  2. Willow and Xander, something between them that Willow thinks is romantic and Xander agrees but won't admit it, the summer between seasons 1 and 2. for maidenjedi
  3. Something about the relationship (if you can call it that) between Phoebe/Selene and Endymion. for sonetka
  4. Orson Scott Card's Enderverse- Early days in Battleschool from the PoV of Petra/Dink/Carn/one of the older kids for maraudercat
  5. Agent Carter/Percy Jackson crossover: Peggy Carter meets Bianca and Nico di Angelo (admittedly, the timeline on this one is a bit wonky) for Anon
  6. How about some Eowin and Faramir? for Anon
  7. Crime fiction crossover: JKR's detective (forgotten his name) works with one or more of: Hercules Poirot, Miss Marple, Sherlock Holmes, Sam Vimes of the City Watch (from Pratchett) or whoever you want. for Aylat
  8. Apollo goes to a poetry reading. for princesselwen
  9. OUAT: Maybe something AU with Henry and Neal for gabrielladusult
  10. Would it be wrong to just ask for ANYTHING Peggy Carter? for Anon

Buffyverse:


Willow and Xander, something between them that Willow thinks is romantic and Xander agrees but won't admit it, the summer between seasons 1 and 2.


Buffy when she firsts learns about her powers.  Maybe her first non-vampire fight, with a demon. 


Giles deciding to become a Watcher.


Agent Carter:


Peggy and Angie go to the movies.


Peggy and Ana Jarvis meet and make Edwin Jarvis very uncomfortable in their immediate familiarity.


Peggy steps in to help a kid in trouble of some kind in Brooklyn, Steve-feels ensue.

Not knowing what other common fantasy/sci-fi fandoms you've read, I'll throw a few ideas. If you don't know them please ignore:

-Tamora Pierce's Tortall-something with adult Keladry and friends, perhaps with squires of their own

-Orson Scott Card's Enderverse- Early days in Battleschool from the PoV of Petra/Dink/Carn/one of the older kids


-Some sort of cross-over of celtic mythology into the Percy Jackson 'verse. I'm interested in how the seelie court might mesh/clash with the demigods

-Thanks, Maraudercat

- Percy Jackson: Something about Luke, Thalia and Annabeth's time on the run

or

- Agent Carter: Something from Peggy Carter's childhood or teenage years (maybe how she decided to become an agent)

or

- Agent Carter/Percy Jackson crossover: Peggy Carter meets Bianca and Nico di Angelo (admittedly, the timeline on this one is a bit wonky)

Is there such a thing as Terry Pratchett fan fic? If so,

- the Librarian having an absolute WHALE of a time over anything.

- Death catches someone being mean to cats

- Whatever happen to Teppic?

- Susan and Lobsang, did the son of time and the granddaughter of death fizzle or sizzle?

I'd like to read the Susan and Lobsang one!

Alas, that's not one of my fandoms... I odn't know it at all!
willowlistener From: willowlistener Date: January 9th, 2016 01:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
Or you could, IDK, write a crime thriller starring Auror Ruthless with assistance from Special Agent Teddy and James providing the evening slippers and pipe...

How about some Eowin and Faramir?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: January 9th, 2016 06:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oo, LotR. I've written there, but not for a while. Fair game. :D
From: (Anonymous) Date: January 9th, 2016 05:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
Crime fiction crossover: JKR's detective (forgotten his name) works with one or more of: Hercules Poirot, Miss Marple, Sherlock Holmes, Sam Vimes of the City Watch (from Pratchett) or whoever you want.

Should be a change, looking forward ;)

Oh my goodness--I'd love to see what Cormoran Strike and Sherlock Holmes would make of each other.

Riffing on this idea and hoping that you like playing in JKR's latest sandbox, I'd love to see what Strike's assistant Robyn and Lord Peter Wimsey would make of each other. Harriet Vane is always good to see too...

Thanks!

Some LOTR suggestions:

Something with Boromir and Faramir as kids together.

Something from Aragorn's earlier years, maybe when he was in Gondor or Rohan. Could possibly include young Denethor.

How Merry got a glimpse at Bilbo's book, and how he and Pippin and Sam planned their 'conspiracy.'

For Percy Jackson:

Apollo goes to a poetry reading. :)

I cannot resist the Apollo one.
princesselwen From: princesselwen Date: January 10th, 2016 02:02 am (UTC) (Link)
I couldn't either 😀

Dana Scully

Pick one--

• Dana Scully's life as a physician.
• Dr. Scully decides to apply to become an FBI agent.
• Dana Scully's life as an MD/FBI agent.
• Dana Scully gets partnered with this weird UFO-nut FBI agent named Mulder.

Re: Dana Scully

Oo... I know the character, but I haven't watched an X-Files since it went off the air. I don't think I remember well enough to do that one!

Do you have 10? I wanted to suggest a OUAT, but not sure if you are still watching or if you care to write in it. Maybe something AU with Henry and Neal, or Some Neverland missing history with Peter and Hook?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: January 10th, 2016 02:02 am (UTC) (Link)
I haven't watched since they randomly killed Bae to get him out of the way of the Hook ship, so whatever's happened with Henry since, I don't know... but I'm up for an AU that branched before then.

is it too late?

Would it be wrong to just ask for ANYTHING Peggy Carter? Something reflecting on Steve? Something about her children? Something with her kicking ass later in life? Basically anything.

Re: is it too late?

I could come up with something.

Oh dang, sorry I missed this one. Still, nice to see you taking requests in new fandoms. I'm looking forward to reading some of these.
