Fandom: The Chronicles of Chrestomanci - Diana Wynne Jones
Mordecai Roberts | Tacroy Christopher Chant The Dright Millie | Millie Chant Fanfiction
Tacroy and the Dright forcing him to betray Chrestomanci Castle. It has to be less than fun growing up thinking you're human and then getting told that someone else owns your soul. What did they do to him to beat him to the point where he doesn't even try to stand up any more? Does Christopher winning him back by claiming him as his have side effects Christopher wasn't aware of? Does the Dright ever try revenge on him or Christopher?
Millie and Christopher during the events of Charmed Life; what conversations were they having behind the scenes? I can't see there not being arguments. Did Millie blame him for them running away? Did she point out the irony of him pushing Cat into hiding a girl from another world? How did she feel about the non-interference policy; did she want to step in after the snake-skirt incident?
Anything at all about Christopher's silver allergy being used against him.

Samuel Vimes Sybil Ramkin Esmerelda "Granny" Weatherwax Gytha "Nanny" Ogg Rob Anybody Jeannie (Discworld) Fanfiction
Sam and Sybil; Sam and Young Sam; Sam trying to work out the ramifications of suddenly leaping up several classes. All his instincts are cranky chip-on-my-shoulder working class ones and then suddenly he is one of the upper class and sometimes his brain fires the wrong reaction. How does he react the first time a kid reacts to Young Sam with a chip on their shoulder for the kid with a silver spoon in his mouth? Sybil standing up for Sam when he's not there (even when she might not agree with him). Sam and Willikins getting each other's measure and starting to become something friend-ish. Sybil vaguely feeling around what Willikins thinks of Sam before they start courting.
Young Granny and Nanny and all of their arguments and making up and arguing again as best friends do. Learning to be the Granny and Nanny we see today - perhaps trying out each other's approaches, realising it doesn't work for them because they are themselves. Nanny getting married or having kids. Granny not getting married to Ridcully and not liking kids. Granny tolerating Nanny's cats. Early witching; first babies and first deaths.
Jeannie and Rob are my Discworld OTP. The scene in I Shall Wear Midnight where Rob loses his temper gives me chills - the moreso when you realise that this is a people generally a-okay with dying. Any kind of after-scene from that scene I would eat up with a spoon. I love that Rob is completely bossed by Jeannie but clearly, when it comes down to it, adores her. Something about how they learned to love each other, even with the 500 mistakes they make along the way?

Gornyel Desse: I vaguely ship him with Falundir and also with Granon Mikleine (it's not like he ever showed any signs of limiting himself romantically), so there's that, but there's also so much more. Realising that they'd lost and needed a box to store the Captal's Bequest in. Realising what Auvry was; did he always know he was a Malaressi? Did he think he was redeemable? Finding out what happened to Flundir - maybe knowing in advance what Falundir was planning nd being unable to stop it. Getting Falundir out - how did he pull that off? The kid rescuing service for kids who had mild congenital deformaties - did he have any kids affected by it? Is that how it started? Rescuing Collan. Loving these young people in his own grumpy controlling way and trying to control so much and stuff so much knowledge into them because he knew his time was running out.
You should probably know that I ship Sarra with Collan hard, but I could also see her with Granon Isidor after Collan died. It's intriguing that she never looks back on childhood and thinks Glenin at all redeemable - is that due to a Ward too? Having Collan rub her nose in the ugly parts of society that even she looks at and then looks away because everyone has things they can't bear to start dismantling.
History tells us that not all Malaressi are bad to the bone; has Cailet also found examples of Mage Guardians with less than exemplary behaviour that she's hidden because they can't afford for society to look at Mage Guardians like that? What does she have buried in the memories she's inherited - the Captal's Bequest, Alin, Gorynel, all of it, that might wake her in a cold sweat at 3AM?
Did Auvry lie to Glenin about his backstory? Was he always a Malaressi spy, sent over to corrupt Mai but accidentally falling deeply in love along the way? What might have happened if he convinced her to come with him? What happened if he took Sarra instead and left her her First Daughter? Tell me about making Cailet with the last of their love that one last day.

Fandom: The Queen's Thief - Megan Whalen Turner
Eugenides (Queen's Thief) Eugenides the God (Queen's Thief) Fanfiction
When your gods are real and you have proof it's amazing and awful. Amazing because they are on your side, awful because that may not/will not always be the case. I like Eugenide's rages at the gods most of anything. Realising that events in the past (death of his mother) were engineered to get him to that point (when you are a god, is it murder?). Dealing with Attolia's feelings about his gods. Hitting a point in the future where what is best for Eugenides and his family is not the same as what the gods determine as best for their people. Happy for any gods in this, not just Eugenides, or other characters dealing with the gods if you matched on the god rather than Gen. (Attolia challenging them? The Minister of War's feelings about the fact his wife died? Sophos working through them being real?)

Fandom: Labyrinth (1986)
What does Jareth do with the babies he steals? It seems likely that they are used because humans are the ones with the power to design Goblinland. How does he keep them under control so that it still falls under the design he would like it to be? What happens if/when they realise they have the power? Do they ever in the midst of an argument speak the words "You have no power over me" and find themselves unable to take it back?
Happy for underage here if that's your jam; children grown up if not. Power play (going either way) works beautifully and I'm fine with dubcon..

ToT: Treat ToT: Trick
Fanfiction Any Character
What happens to Anatoly when he goes back? (It seems unlikely to be anything good). Does Florence ever talk to the Arbiter as the only guy who has failed to try and screw her over in this show? Can chess actually continue after the show or have the political shenanigans hobbled it as a game? Does Freddie try to rebuild it and pull it away from the politics, perhaps somehow with Anatoly and Florence's reluctant help? (And get visited by serious scary men who talk to him about not interfering in things that don't concern him?).
(I do not ship Freddy and Anatoly - sorry!)

Jack (Into the Woods) Little Red Riding Hood (Into the Woods) Giant's Wife (Into the Woods) Witch (Into the Woods)Fanfiction
Giant's Wife POV about the little monsters that came into her life, wrecked her home and family and forced her to seek vengeance.
Giant's wife survives and somehow teams up with the witch, united by a contempt of everyone else.
The witch and her mother; not all monsters are unfamiliar. And considering how she treated Rapunzel she was clearly trying to be a better mother.
Any sympathetic witch's eye view of her trying to raise Rapunzel right. Why did she take Rapunzel in the first place? It clearly wasn't just for vengeance. Does she try to teach her gardening in the tower?
The giant didn't just have a wife, he had children. And by the time they seek out Red and Jack those two are old enough to feel guilty about the events they precipitated, but they have to deal awith them anyway.
