2012 Winners, Make Your Requests!

THIS IS THE SIGNUP POST. If your name was in the winners list for the closure post? This is where you comment to specify your request.

Here are your instructions:

1.) Pick one (1) or two (2) fandoms-- and, heck, I'm not going to list them all out again. I'll be generous and say, anything I've committed more than 1000 words in over the last twelve months.

2.) Name one (1) character or one (1) pairing of any type.

3.) Give me a brief prompt or phrase. (You may specify "do not includes" also, but try to keep the list short; and I don't do NC-17 or incest at all.) Or-- you may ask for a one-shot connected to any of my eligible-fandom past works.

My available roster of fic is at the AO3. (The fandom list at the top of the profile page is especially handy for sorting purposes, if you're looking for favorites or checking which fandoms are eligible. )

Any questions or concerns? Feel free to ask. But get those requests in ASAP!

So I've gone around and around in my head about what I want you to write. I have three options that equally make me smile at the thought of you writing them but am not sure which you'd like to do. Do you want me to give you a choice or should I just pick?
Mar. 13th, 2012 11:15 pm (UTC)
Let me guess, they're all Chris Evans prompts. Go ahead and list all three out; I want to see what ideas you have. =)
Mar. 13th, 2012 11:31 pm (UTC)
You know me so well.
Option 1. Five things different people taught Steve Rogers to like about the 21st century
Option 2. Some sort of Tony Stark/Pepper Potts
Option 3. Johnny Storm and Johnny Blaze in some sort of motorcycle dare devil thing. (I looked at Storm's bio and apperently at one time he was a canadate for the Zarathos demon, add to that the fire thing, and that bit in the first movie of each duology of them riding in a motocross/stunt show and I want to see them together.)
Mar. 15th, 2012 02:39 pm (UTC)
My dear, I thought you said you were going to ask for Push!

I can't scold your husband for this, and then give you a free pass - at least one of your prompts has to be fully eligible. AKA, something I've written at least a thousand words in, in the past. (Ghost Rider is the only fandom above that counts; but as Fantastic Four doesn't, that prompt cancels out.)

I may end up using one of your other prompts anyway. But it's not fair to the other participants to let my friends circumvent the clearly stated rules entirely. =)
Mar. 15th, 2012 05:03 pm (UTC)
Sticking to the rules then Push isn't elgible either since it's been a couple years since you wrote it.. I also see the Buffy/Leverage cross is at 700 words so not elgible either. Darn it. So I'll go for something with Johnny Blaze (particularly post the second movie) or a continuation of the Watered with Blood serries.
Mar. 15th, 2012 05:31 pm (UTC)
There's no way I've written less than 1,000 words of Leverage in the past year. And of course I've written more of that in Buffy. So if it's B:tVS/Leverage you want, go right on ahead; whatever storyline you want is fine so long as the fandoms fit, the count isn't based on a specific story or cross. Though of course I don't mind WWB either.

The main thing here is, this is my birthday competition? So I want to write in things I'm familiar with and already comfortable with writing? So my recipient wins and I have fun writing it, rather than stressing over doing research.
Mar. 15th, 2012 05:42 pm (UTC)
I missed a couple when I was looking becaused they crossed with something else.=)
So I'd love a sequel to Symptoms of particular regard=)
Mar. 13th, 2012 03:36 pm (UTC)
Since this is set to be the last one of these, I'm going to do something unusual-for-me, and actually request sequelfic.
Specifically, either of:

# A follow-up at long last to "Closing Pandora's Box" (Castle/PJO)

# A follow-up to "Where No Sorcerer Has Gone Before" (Trek XI/Sorcerer's Apprentice)

If you need further prompting for either of these, then for "Box", one might cover Alexis talking to either of Martha or Beckett about fallout from her discovery. For "Sorcerer", two thoughts: the obvious would be Balthazar actually meeting reboot!Jim, the less obvious might be meeting reboot!Uhura (because in the context of this cross-universe, I can't help wondering if part of her and reboot!Spock's chemistry might involve a gift for the Mind Arts on her part).

And of course, if you've had other ideas simmering for these ;verses, you're absolutely welcome/encouraged to follow those.

Edited at 2012-03-13 03:37 pm (UTC)
Mar. 15th, 2012 05:33 pm (UTC)
Ooo, either of those would be fun to write. I'll have to do some pondering. =)
Mar. 14th, 2012 12:00 am (UTC)
Lessee. We got my standard requests--more Grissom-is-Buffys-Dad and more Wesley-is-a-Wizard.

But it would also be fun to see more of William-the-Bloody-is-Nevilles-Uncle.

I would ask for more Lesser Men, as that is what I most want to see more of yours, but I dont think its eligible. Or the River-is-a-slayer one, but ditto.

Basically, you make it awfully tough to choose, because I love so much of your stuff!
Mar. 15th, 2012 05:37 pm (UTC)
I don't know if you noticed on the 2009 list, but I still owe you 2,000 words of Grissom-is-Buffy's dad: hopefully the actual meeting this time. I'm actually 1,400 words into writing it, so it should be up soon. =)

No, I don't allow "add to WIP" for one of these lists, though I haven't given up on either of the stories you've mentioned. It's the time/energy/research suck they represent that's kept me away from them the last couple of years; but I'll get back to them sooner or later. That's one of the reasons this is the last challenge I'm running, so I have time to devote to my WIPs.

Hm, either of the Angelverse/HP ones would be interesting; I think I left the Polaris Wyndham-Pryce one on kind of a cliff-hanger, actually. *thinking*
Mar. 14th, 2012 05:02 am (UTC)
Could I please be put down for Buffy/McCoy, with the prompt of (I Won't Say) I'm in Love?

If not, then could I possibly have more of the Firefly/SW fusion verse you wrote for me for xover-exchange?

Thank you so much for doing this! :D
Mar. 15th, 2012 05:40 pm (UTC)
Ooo. Either of those would be interesting.

I'm still the only person that's ever posted Buffy/McCoy to the AO3, apparently... but River as Jedi... hmmm.
Mar. 15th, 2012 09:36 pm (UTC)
I'm good with either of them, so whichever one strikes your fancy. :)
Aug. 13th, 2015 07:18 am (UTC)
You've probably seen the link by now, but this fic is finally up:

Carried Safe to Shore, which I actually wrote as a (less angsty) tag for my previous Buffy/Bones fic for you. Sorry it took so long!
Mar. 14th, 2012 09:27 am (UTC)
I'm thinking, thinking, thinking... I can't decide!
Do I want more Beth Carter? Do I want more Wesley + SG1? Do I want more Tara + SG1? Do I want something else entirely? Crazy crossovers to go? Something with Severus Snape in an inappropriately strange universe like ST:Reboot or LotR or Star Wars?

I don't knowwwwwwww!
Mar. 15th, 2012 05:42 pm (UTC)
LOL. I do still owe you Wesley + SG-1 from last year, so that's covered; you're one of the two outstanding 2011 requests.

Let me know when you settle on three or fewer prompts. =)
Mar. 15th, 2012 09:37 pm (UTC)

#1 Give Severus Snape a happy ending while zapping him into either the ST:Reboot universe or the Star Wars universe. (evil grin)
#2 More Grissom-and-the-firelizard.
#3 More Tara + SG1.
Mar. 21st, 2012 12:21 am (UTC)
Wow. All three of those appeal to me for different reasons. I think the first would be more of a challenge than the others, though; I'll have to think about it!
Mar. 21st, 2012 09:32 am (UTC)
I have to admit, I'm really hoping you'll go for the first, even though it is more difficult than the others. It's just the last chance I'll have to get your fiendishly brilliant brain to do something so brain-bendy. 8-)
Mar. 15th, 2012 01:30 am (UTC)
I'm making it official: more word count to my previous prompt... I figure that's nicer than coming up with another crazy one.
Mar. 15th, 2012 05:44 pm (UTC)
Well, it's up to you. Bumping up to 5,100 words of McGonagall/Bra'tac isn't exactly simple, either. But should be fun. *grin*
Mar. 15th, 2012 01:49 am (UTC)
Argh! So many choices! I keep coming back to anything from the Leverage/Buffy cross, either from the "Strong Objections to the Lady" verse or the "Soul Job" verse. I'm also tempted by the idea of Oz in the Star Wars IX 'verse, but then I need a prompt. Have I said argh, yet? Oh, yes, there it is...

I will make up my mind, promise. Or would you prefer to have the choice?
Mar. 15th, 2012 05:46 pm (UTC)
You could leave me with the three choices, if you can't narrow it down. But - yes, I'd need a prompt for the Oz one. And the "Soul Job" one, an idea of where/when/who in the 'verse you'd want it set.
Mar. 19th, 2012 01:16 am (UTC)
I'm going for Oz in Star Trek IX... argh! I can't even make up my mind about this! Okay, I vote "Vulcans aren't always the coolest heads in battle" and will pretend to forget the other prompts in my head.

There! I've decided :)
Mar. 21st, 2012 12:27 am (UTC)
Oz is awesome; good choice. =)
Aug. 13th, 2016 12:32 am (UTC)
Finally, eons later, filled this (sorry!):

Engineers Wear Red Shirts, Too
Aug. 13th, 2016 03:59 am (UTC)
YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY! Gonna read it tomorrow when I'm fully conscious :D
Mar. 15th, 2012 03:55 am (UTC)
Well, I'm going to be ornery and suggest three:

Emberverse...While I played fast and loose with the timeline in my High Warlady of Yuma series, the Change event happened in March of 1998, making it congruent with Buffy Season 2. How might things have gone in Unsealed-Hellmouth Sunnydale during that time in the aftermath of the Change? Giles doesn't get enough love, so let's focus on him, shall we? Let's pair...Xander & Willow...partly for grins and giggles and partly because if I recall correctly, said pairing is plausibly in-canon for Season 2.

Howl's Moving Castle...How would Howl and company handle Whedon-type vampires? I'd kind of like to see Howl and Giles butting heads over something. Howl & Sophie...who else?

Tangled...Yeah, you know I had to do it! This would be more of a challenge given the multi-century time disparity...and time-travel would probably be cheating (even though I did it in the Sun-Bearer Chronicles). Maybe the Scoobies encounter something or someone relating to the magic golden flower...it does, after all, have the ability to keep someone young essentially forever. Maybe Willow is somehow involved in either discovering that particular bit of magic or learning how to manipulate it in some way. I suppose the pairings might depend on how you approach it.

My only specific request is that you keep the characters in-character...while that doesn't seem to be on of your weaknesses, it IS the foremost cardinal sin in fanfiction.
Mar. 15th, 2012 01:58 pm (UTC)
While those are all three interesting prompts, and I know you know I know the canon - all three of them include ineligible fandoms. See rules above.

You need to include at least one prompt that is eligible, or it isn't fair to either me or the other participants. Especially if you're going to be a stickler about characterization. =)
Mar. 16th, 2012 01:20 am (UTC)
Okie dokie....

Leverage.... We've seen in Buffy canon that Giles is actually a closet BAMF. How might a fight between him and Elliott go?

POTC.... The crew of the Black Pearl failed to lift their curse and the ship is still plying the waters of the Caribbean in the late 20th century. They take Cordelia as a hostage...you decide why.

(Is that better? ;-) )

Re: a stickler about characterization...are you implying that you'd actually write characters OUT of character? Surely not!
Mar. 21st, 2012 12:23 am (UTC)
Of course I wouldn't write characters out of character, if I can help it; it's just a lot easier to write characters whose headspace I'm used to exploring, rather than having to do lots of research. And as this is my birthday ficathon, I want to do something both myself and my recipient will enjoy. =)
Aug. 18th, 2012 07:58 am (UTC)
So ... I wrote you a fic, you may have seen a notice from AO3 about it:

Should Have Gone To Alaska.

It was the Cordy one. Unfortunately, I didn't realize I'd subconsciously substituted Davy Jones & Co. for "the crew of the Black Pearl" until after I hit post. Ooops ....?
Mar. 19th, 2012 01:01 am (UTC)
Hmm. After much dithering, I've come up with three possibilities (ok, actually three-ish.)

Either more in any of your BtVS/CSI crosses, because frankly they're all wonderful and I couldn't pick between them, Dawn meeting Leo at Camp Half Blood for the first time, or Buffy/Star Trek 2009. Does any of this work? I'm sorry, I'm pants at coming up with prompts.
Mar. 21st, 2012 12:26 am (UTC)
Sure! Those will work. Though I don't think I'm familiar with Leo, if he's from Heroes of Olympus... I've been waiting to invest in the new PJO series until it's a little further along. =)

If I happened to go with the Star Trek 2009/B:tVS cross, what character(s) would you want front and center?
Mar. 28th, 2012 12:41 am (UTC)
Eep! I missed the comment notification. *embarrassed*
Hmm... if you go with Star Trek 2009/BtVS, I'd say either or both Summers sisters and Spock or McCoy.
Mar. 20th, 2012 02:41 am (UTC)
Fandom: BtVS, Stargate SG-1
Characters: Buffy Summers, Daniel Jackson
Prompt: The most powerful are always the most stubborn.
Mar. 21st, 2012 12:27 am (UTC)
Ah, I do have fun coming up with new ways for these characters to get to know each other. *grin* Or would you want it set in one of my established 'verses?
Mar. 21st, 2012 02:41 am (UTC)
New or established. I'm not picky. :)
Aug. 8th, 2015 10:34 pm (UTC)
Sorry it took me so long - I recently tripped across the list of birthday request fics still outstanding, and facepalmed. :) Hope you enjoy; it ended up a sequel to my Buffy, SGC Psychologist fic.

Dr. Buffy Is In (Extra Augh at No Charge) - 1200 words.
Mar. 29th, 2012 07:56 pm (UTC)

Sorry about the late reply! And thanks a lot for offering to write something. Hmmm... You know, I've always wanted the Buffybot and Cameron (of Sarah Connor Chronicles) to meet up in some way. The phrase "We're very pretty" could feature. Is that something you think you might be able to do something with?
Apr. 2nd, 2012 04:49 pm (UTC)
.... LOL. I might have to rewatch some T:SCC for that, but it would be worth it.
