Gentle reader, aralias asked me what ideas I had in the pipeline. I started to gather notes, but as some of the tabs stretched to like 15 pages worth of notes per idea (not all, but def some), I saw this was actually a MONUMENTAL task and decided to write out just--the short-hand way I think of a given idea, or something that will similarly make me go 'oh YEAH'. This is probably not all of them. I will probably remember some more. …only like 3 are gen. ANYWAY. Because many of the titles are MYSTERIOUS, just let me know and I will explain what's up/give my notes for a given thing.

Yes I know there are 88. Shut up. So's your face.

Idk I guess say if there's anything you particularly want--no idea what order anything should be done in.

This list includes:

* things I have a several thou on
* things I have worked out entirely in long form outline
* things I p much--just know what I'd do
* things I want to write and have some notions for but not necessarily a PLOT for

This list does NOT include:

* my fic ideas for:

Wimsey
GMD
D/M DW

though I'd write those up if anyone wanted

I was having a bit twitter conversation about things I ship and how they map, so I decided to make a list of everything I've ever read fic for, barring like, miiinor adventures.

* denotes a pairing I've written for
as a kid: things I wouldn't read now, p much? A lot of my adult fandoms have been my fandoms for a decade +

Things I've read a lot of and would still seek out and read happily (though not all are like, KEY fandoms for me/my investment level varies, and it REALLY depends on my mood):
Blake/Avon (Blake's 7) *
Doctor/Master (Doctor Who) * (this cheats because it has like hundreds of possible combinations)
Peter/Harriet (Wimsey) * (needs more of a fic fandom!!)
Kirk/Spock (ST:TOS, reboot)
Picard/Q (ST:TNG)
Darcy/Elizabeth (P&P)
Buffy/Spike (Buffy)
Sarah/Jareth (Labyrinth)
Things I might have liked a lot better if canon/fandom had been there:
Peter/Lydia (Teen Wolf) A LITTLE, Series 1
Thornton/Margaret (N&S)
Ratigan/Basil (Great Mouse Detective) * I AM NOT EVEN SORRY i am I AM NOT (I'd write more but tbh I'm not in the mood to be any MORE Church in the Wild rn)
Disraeli/Gladstone (history)
Sallieri/Mozart (Amadeus)
Death/Elisabeth (Elisabeth)
Aeon/Trevor (Aeon Flux)
gen Chrestomanci fic (I wish she'd written something I shipped, I feel SO fannish about DWJ but I have no locus for it really)
Michelangelo/Julius II (Agony and the Ecstasy)
Lawrence/Sherif Ali (Lawrence of Arabia)

Things I read a lot of but don't seek out now:
Jeeves/Wooster (Jeeves novels, show)
Hornblower/Bush (Hornblower novels) (though I'd also read /Barbara)
Vimes/Vetinari (Discworld)
Holmes/Watson (ACD)
I've read a little Steve/Tony and Loki/Thor (MCU) but not been IN it
Legolas/Gimli (LOTR)
Sauron/Gandalf (LOTR)
Xavier/Magneto (MCU)
Stuff I wrote that I didn't ship:
also wrote some stuff I don't properly ship for Elle/Callahan (Legally Blonde) for a challenge *
and Wall E gen for a friend *
Moriqrty/Moran (Ritchie) for a friend *

Stuff I read a lot of as a kid but probably wouldn't read now (though sure if a fic was AMAZING):
I did read Sam/Gene (LoM) in uni but now I feel that's not correct, quite
Bulma/Vegeta (DBZ) as a kid
One/Four (C:KND) as a kid, with a friend *
gen Star Wars family relationships as a kid *
I did read Kira/Dukat (TNG) as a kid and feel bad for it
Kagome/InuYasha (Inu Yasha) as a kid
Ichabob/Horseman (Sleepy Hollow), as a kid
Sparrow/Norrington (Potc1) as a kid
Read some Potter shit but was never IN there
some more anime--Slayer? Lina?? and Rock-guy with like an X name??
Treize/Une (Gundam Wing)
Zechs/Noin (Gundam Wing)
there is more anime, but fuck if I know it rn

CONCLUSIONS:

* I have 3 TYPES really:
enemies
bffs w complex loyalty issues
things like Gaudy Night
(and overlaps, like, have fun locating B/A in this schema)

* Idc about gender/advanced age/hotness really--I mean I will FIND the hotness
* it feels like cheating that romances I LOVE but don't read fic for aren't on here, but DO I 'ship' them if I don't seek fic?
* It is notable that they're all clever p much :/
* I'm nearly always protags
* Nearly always people I'd make an academic argument for
* I go for: the ship that makes SENSE of the text for me, that enriches the text
* It's often a case where, in my reading, it's kind of immaterial whether they shag or not because their emotional involvement with one another is incontestibly vital to them and the narrative
* I have a hard time squeezing a ship out of a small canon
* I like super/super and super/mundane as their own things (tho happy w mundane/mundane in canons where that's not a thing)
* I have to care about both characters (some people really don't, it's fandom darling and what makes him happy/a cock--that's a mean way of putting it but you KNOW someone is watching that grapefruit oral sex trick video and going mm, Spike/Grapefruit)
* On making my big list and finding no femslash pairs, tho I am a queer lady and yea, be in a queer relationship: I've happily read femslash versions of a lot of these, and het versions of the slash ships? I honestly think it's that thing where two central women having a CENTRAL, IMPORTANT relationship that might be gay is rare, bc god knows when I get to a new fandom one of my first instincts is 'ok what changes if they're women'. I mean the only way I'd ever be happy about a Blakes 7 reboot is if the protagonists were lesbians let's put it fucking that way.
* Too white, possibly for similar reasons. Like--I trust myself enough, I think, to say that if Spock was black I'd still dig the living shit out of it. But what canon gives me something like K/S but with a PoC? I know I have some anime on here but that's not quite the same.

Pairings: Blake/Avon
Characters: Blake, Avon
Summary:

Since joining the Liberator crew, Avon has found himself constantly worrying about Blake's safety, and has saved Blake numerous times from ludicrously dangerous situations. It's not Avon's fault that this looks like chivalry, which he doesn't believe in any more than he believes in Blake's cause, and which Blake has never had much use for.

(an AU where Blake has always been a woman)

*blatantly stolen from elyssadc*

So I've realized that it's been just a few months shy of a year since I first watched a Who ep. Naturally I've seen New Who, but I've been slacking a bit on getting my classic on--or I'll start an arc and wander off, or rely on wiki to tell me what happens so I can move on to the more fun bits rather than finishing it off. What better than public shaming to make me get cracking on my old Who?

ONLY ARCS I'VE FINISHED IN FULL GET BOLDED. This will hopefully discourage my 'oooh, a shinny object! *flee*' ways.

Recs as to what in particular to watch are welcomed, naturally.

I always write--for people to read. Not tailored like a suit, but for a few readers. There's a whole school of writing that emphasizes TOTAL INDIVIDUALISM as the only artistic!! perspective--write for oneself, etc. But that's some Romantic Muse-Whispers bullshit. Writing is always communication--there's an intended recipient, or it's not even writing, just marks. Maybe according to purists of that ilk you are your own Best Reader, but I've never really enjoyed reading my own work (very occasionally, but not as a rule, and I don't do it much).

Pre-Tumblr, when I was more embedded in fandom, I felt a lot surer of what people wanted. And I never really wrote The Zeitgeist--I was never in MEGAFANDOMS and their Central Pairings--but I knew sort of--what pairings and topics might interest anyone who wasn't just me.

So without asking anyone to demonstrate cray excitement over fic that doesn't exist yet, and which may never exist (I've given up projects before this), here are some WIPs, things I've plotted, and things I think I should probably write. It might help me if you could mention which you might like to see, so I can sort my priorities/plans and see what there's an audience for (no pressure though, of course!). Generally it serves as a good reference list for my use. I can hold a lot of plots in my head but not really--a neat list of all the possible things I can/should work on, that I can eassily evaluate the pros and cons of doing rn and choose between.


(Italics indicate that I have a pretty developed idea of what I'd do there)


Blakes 7, Wimsey, Doctor Who, Star Trek, GMD, some crossoversCollapse )

I may have forgotten some.
