So I have a Criminal Minds/SG-1 fic I'm writing, and there's a case, and I need the Criminal Minds characters read into (at least a tiny bit of) the Stargate Program because Plot.

Why, that is easy! you say.  Have the SGC need the BAU to do a profile!  Except that, in the story as written, all the SGC needs is the case file.  Once they have that, they can look through properties belonging to corporations and people suspected of Trust ties until they find the right one.  And, in canon, they just call up to their friends in the White House and the FBI/Police/ATF/Whoever has to bend and spread 'em.  I need something more involved where, to find the Trust base, they need BAU help.

I would love someone to read what I've got and suggest ideas, or even just bounce ideas here on DW.

The story as written. )

“What, you think I'm responsible?” Mayhem looked as though he couldn't decide whether to be offended or flattered. “I specialize in minor damage. Broken windows. Fender benders. Sprained ankles. The occasional roof crushed by a tree, tops. This is Act of God level.”

Or, like the title says: Flo. Mayhem. The zombie apocalypse. What more do you need, really?

Fandom, you have fallen down on the job!  This is one of the most awesome crossovers I've ever read, why has it not been recced everywhere so that I can see it?  The story is good, it's well-written, but the incredibly awesome thing is the worldbuilding.  This story has some of the most awesome meta I've ever seen about religion, its place in the SG universe, and what it means to be Immortal in the Highlander sense.  All told within a wonderfully engaging story.  It sent me to my flappy happy place so many times.  Go read it!
beatrice_otter: Cameron Mitchell, bored with a stack of files (Schoolwork)

Yesterday, I added like 10k words to the Criminal Minds/Stargate fic I’ve had as a WIP for the last few years.

…9k or those words weren’t actually new, they were from a scene that didn’t work as-written because I was missing several crucial scenes that formed a plot hole.  So I had to take out most of what I had and do something different with the setup plot, and after a couple years of writing a few hundred words a month on it, finally got to a place where I realized I could just c&p most of the stuff that had to get taken out, it works again now!  Different context and setting, but it works!

So there's a meme going around to pick lines from three WIPs you have.

But where's the fun in that? I have like twenty WIPs in various states of completion. Here are the ones most interesting to me/most likely to get finished:

1. My remix of [ profile] rapfic's "Going Native"

2. Sequel to The Desert Between

Vulcan! )

3. Untitled Teen Wolf thing.
I've never even seen a single ep, though I've read a lot of fic. It can't be that much of a problem, right? )

4. Stargate/Criminal Minds crossover
A casefic that gets personal ... )

5. Sequel to Unreal Things
Cylon!Daniel )

6. The one where Cyd Charisse was a Vulcan
Get your kicks on Route 66 )

7. The one where Anakin doesn't turn and he and Padme eventually get couples therapy.
Living together is a lot different from a few hours snatched here and there during wartime. )

8. The one about Carol Marcus and Jim Kirk's relationship.
beatrice_otter: I don't want to be killed because of a typo.  It would be embarrassing. (Typo)
A while back I got bit by a plot bunny (rabid critters, I know) about classic movie star Cyd Charisse being a Vulcan stranded on Earth.  Which plot bunny I am now writing in fits and starts.

And obviously, the background information we have on her will have to be massaged to fit.  But Wikipedia is lying to me.  It says she was born in 1922 and joined the Ballets Russe de Monte Carlo at age 14.  Which would be 1936, for those of you who have basic arithmetic skills.

The problem is that Wikipedia also tells me that the Ballets Russe de Monte Carlo was not formed until 1938.

I am choosing to believe that Cyd Charisse was 16 when she joined the Ballets Russe de Monte Carlo the year it formed, as that fits better with the timeline of my story.

The Return of the Philosopher's Slayer

ttto "Copacabana", by Barry Manilow
Words copyright ©2003 by Blake Hodgetts

This grew out of a mental collision of two discussions on rmf.


Her name was Buffy;
She was a slayer,
   Protecting everyone from harm--
   Gee, it's a shame about her arm.
A Rancor ate it
When she was stranded
   Inside a cave on Tatooine,
   Which wasn't where she should have been,
'Cause Weasley's spell went wrong.
The Force in her is strong;
So she'll fly a broom to Sunnydale because this song
Is a fanfic,
Crossover fanfic.
It's driving the purist fen frantic.
Yes, it's a fanfic, crossover fanfic...
  Fantasy, sf,
  We'll make a real mess of
In this fanfic....

His name was Harry;
He went to Hogwarts....

Ganked from [personal profile] melannen 

[personal profile] ellen_fremedon has started a meme, which is terribly dangerous but too tempting for me to ignore, so here:

Let's play the Hypothetical Crossover game! Name any two (or more) fandoms you know I'm familiar with*, and I will tell you how I would, hypothetically**, cross them over!

Take the meme, spread the meme, do the meme, love the meme.

*Fandoms I'm familiar with: written on AO3 (expand full list), tagged on DW, or bookmarked on Delicious.  (Yes, I know, I plan to switch to Pinboard eventually.  Today is not that day.)

In other news, I had a job interview that went rather well, yesterday.  Good bits: I would have time to go back to school and work towards my doctorate, it seems like I would be working with good people, and it comes with a nice four-bedroom house (with a garage, very necessary in that part of the world) from which I can walk to work.  Bad bits: it is in Minnesota, i.e. half a continent away from either a) my home (West Coast) or b) the place where most of my friends are now (East Coast).  Minnesota also gets very cold, which I can tolerate but don't like.

beatrice_otter: Plot Bunny Princess (Plot Bunny Princess)
Um.  So, remember that I gave up on my [ profile] xover_exchange story because it was going to be too long to get it finished in time, and started a new story?  Well, I might have ended up writing less if I'd just stuck with it.  I don't know if I've ever written that much in that short a time.

It's a good story.  I like it.  It was fun to write.  I think my recipient will like it better than the original story.  It just ... kind of came out of nowhere.

beatrice_otter: Yuletide (Yuletide)
So, I got my assignment, and clicked it with the trepidation of Yuletide, where one never knows what one will get.

I read the first request.  My response: huh, I didn't think I signed up to write that, but maybe I did?  I'd have to reread some stuff, but that's doable ...

I read the second request.  Definitely not matched on it.

I read the third request.  My response: huh, I didn't think I signed up to write that, but maybe I did?  I'd have to reread some stuff, but that's doable ...

I read the fourth request.  I knew I signed up for that one, so that must be what we're matched on.

But I've never shared three of four fandoms with someone!  This is awesome.  I may have to friend zir when [community profile] yuletide is over, because we evidently share much in common.  And it's not like these are movies that are on TV all the time.  Like, I had a request a couple of years ago where we matched on one, but zie also requested Forrest Gump which I don't think I've ever watched straight through but has been on TV so much I've seen every part of it at least twice, so I knew I could write it if I had to.  That's the closest I've ever matched someone.

From reading zir Yulegoat letter, it's clear which fandom zir heart is truly hoping for.  And it's one we share (sort of), though not the one we matched on.  I have the books.  I haven't read them in years, but I have them easily accessible.  And she's right, there really isn't an online fandom for them, and she only just discovered them and is still in that first blush of "oh, wow, I love these books!", and ... I read fast enough that I should be able to read the whole series as a refresher and still crank out a story by December 25th.  There are only, what, five books?  Something like that?  In two volumes?  And I can skip right through all the battle/tech scenes, because I wouldn't write about them anyway and zie didn't ask for them anyway.  By the time I was in middle school I was reading a novel a day, so even though I have less free time now it shouldn't take too long.  And I still have the fandom we matched on for backup.

On other news, with five days left until rough drafts are due, I'm starting a new [ profile] xover_exchange fic.  My first story started great guns, but then I couldn't figure out where it was going (great premise, but no idea what to do about it).  I finally know where it's going and what the punchline is going to be, but I could not finish it in five days.  I will finish it because it's a cool fic and I like it, but I need something else for the challenge.  Thankfully, the second fic I started yesterday is chugging along nicely.
beatrice_otter: Miss Piggy in a superhero costume: Were you looking for flying pigs? (Were you looking for flying pigs?)
Esther-Channah ([ profile] dragonbat2006) just posted a fic written for me, and it is very funny.  You all need to read it now!  An Offer He Couldn't Refuse.  It is a Batman/Muppet Show crossover.  Yes, you read that right, Batman/Muppet Show.  To say more would spoil it, but it captures the zaniness of the Muppet Show while still being true to Batman.  (Ok, maybe not Chris Nolan or Frank Miller's Batman, but still Batman.)  Go and read, you'll have fun.

(She lists the songs at the end, and if you're not familiar with them I'd recommend doing Youtube searches for them to get a feel for them beforehand, particularly 'Brush Up your Shakespeare.')

beatrice_otter: Honor Harrington with exploding spaceships (Honor Ashes of Victory)
The prompts for [community profile] multiverse5000 ([ profile] multiverse_2011 ) are open for both prompting and claiming!  Even if you're not interested in writing anything, go look through the prompts because they are awesome and will give you a kick just reading the prompts.
