ToT: Trick
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.

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?)

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?

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.

‘Oh, yes,’ said Brocando. ‘The Dumii kept sending armies to see us
and suggest, most politely, that we
submit and be part of their Empire.
We always told them we didn’t
want to join. We weren’t going to
be Counted—’

‘I think it was the paying of
taxes you objected to,’ said Bane,
calmly.

‘We did not see what we would
get for our money,’ said Brocando.

‘You would be defended,’ said
Bane.

‘Ah . . but we’ve always been
quite good at defending ourselves,’
said Brocando, in a meaningful tone
of voice. ‘Against anyone.’ He
smiled. ‘And then the General here
was sent to suggest it to us again,
with a little more force,’ he said. ‘I
remember he said that he was afraid
that if we did not join the Empire,
there would be hardly any of us to
be Counted.’

‘And you said there’d be hardly
anyone left to do the Counting,’ said
Bane.

Snibril looked from one to the
other. He realized he was holding
his breath. He let it out. ‘And then
what happened?’ he said.

Bane shrugged. ‘I didn’t attack,’
he said. ‘I didn’t see why good
people should die. I went back and
told the Emperor that Brocando’s
people would make better allies
than unwilling subjects. Anyway,
only a fool would attack that city.’

‘I always wondered what he
replied,’ said Brocando.

Bane looked down at his ragged
clothes. ‘He shouted quite a lot,’ he
said.

Hi author! Good to meet you! My fandoms are all tiny so it really is good to meet you :D Glad to know you exist!

Some of my prompts are in different styles. This means nothing other than that I wrote them on different days (I kept breaking off and saving to do other things)

If you are a treater you are also welcome and my ao3 username is shewhoguards

Things I like
Dark!fic
Fighting and making up
Redeemable villains
People making bad mistakes with good intentions
Hurt/comfort with the type of person to get miserably stroppy and overwrought about it rather than bursting into tears or something

Things I'd prefer to avoid
Major character death
Pure erotica/PWP
Incest

Other than that, I've tried to provide decent prompts and I hope that helps!
Summary

Christopher Chant & Mordecai Roberts
Oh Tacroy <3 As long as this story is Tacroy centred you can include whoever you want in it, I would just rather it not be shippy.

I'm fascinated by Eleven, anything more about that (repercussions? or just talking about it?) would be awesome. Adventures with young Christopher and Tacroy world-hopping (and Tacroy being evasive) would be awesome. Anything you want to do with the fact that Christopher has claimed Tacroy as his man would be great. Small!Christopher prepared to shield Tacroy from Gabriel, the police and the world would be equally great.

(angst and sadder fics completely fine here, hurt/comfort fine here, no happy ending required)

Cat and Gwendolen
How on earth did Gwendolen using Cat start? She must have been pretty young when she started, and a kiddy that size doesn't start off evil, so I assume the getting from there to "I am actually prepared to kill my brother so he stays dead" must have been edging along a line. There are moments in Charmed Life where she does seem genuinely fond of him. Early childhood scenes, including their parents trying to deal with it? (And what on earth was said in those letters?) AU where Gwendolen didn't get to escape, and they had to actually work out their relationship? Gwendolen growing up, learning responsibility and regretting what she did?

(again no happy ending required because duh)

Christopher/Millie
I don't see theirs as the most calm of relationships so I can only assume that they have a "Not in front of the children" agreement in later books. I'd love "behind the scenes" discussions. What was the original discussion of "oh hey, let's adopt my cousins' kids"? If Millie was upset at Julia for them running away, what on earth did she say to Christopher? Did she ever point out the irony that they were driving Cat into hiding a girl from another world and oh hey, this is a familiar situation? And the end of Charmed Life is something I can only imagine fading into hurt/comfort once the witnesses went away, despite everyone taking it very calmly. (The problem with being a grown up, let alone Chrestomanci, is that you can't visibly go "OH GOD, THEY JUST PUT SILVER HANDCUFFS ON ME AND I WAS HELPLESS" until the witnesses go away).

Also, I can see Christopher being the type of guy to step in front of Millie and try to have her arguments for her, even when she'd rather he didn't, so him getting pulled up on that (or just not telling him things so he didn't over-react) would be awesome.

(have them argue as much as you want but I'd prefer them to make up by the end)
 

Christopher Chant and Cat Chant

I love Christopher dearly, but my god did he fail at parenting during Charmed Life. Oh hi, I'm just going to let your sister try and murder you multiple times and also get really pissed off with you and hit you for NOT STOPPING HER. (Clearly your life as a teenager was blame-free. Oh, wait, you aided a gang of criminals and then later you ran away to another Series because you were annoyed with your guardian.) On the other hand you got a glimpse of just how non!faily he could be at the point where Cat caught fire which is an amazing scene I might have reread a few dozen times. Along with the handcuffs scene.

Anyway, my (meandering) point is, this is not going to magically (ha!) get better with a sorry. I can't imagine that Cat won't be wary of Christopher for some time, and Christopher is really going to need to work on that. Also the poor kid has a lot of trauma to work through and Christopher calmly and competently stopping him getting himself killed is also awesome.


 


Young Wizards - Diane Duane  
Summary

Mostly what I want from these two is behind-the-scenes fic. They spend a lot of time having to give really hard advice (sorry sweetie, but I can't tell you not to go off, get turned into a whale and die), deal with kids being kids (oh, what did Dairine do NOW?) and having to talk to parents (who I assume are sometimes less understanding than Nita's and Kit's). And then there are the really hard times, like when Nita's mum is dying. Basically I figure a lot of their time is spent facepalming, and the rest is spent going "oh dear god, let me just have said the right thing" and possibly drinking. You could go with humorous despair over the kids' latest escapades or comfort over some of the really tough situations.

I prefer the earlier books; basically base everything before the event where they lost their powers and forgot everything please?


Fandom: Labyrinth (1986)  
Summary

This whole kidnapping babies thing doesn't seem like it's Jareth's first go-around. If there's a script, and a "things you have to say" ("That doesn't even start with 'I wish'!") then that would make it seem like there have been other babies in the past. What did he kidnap them for, what is their purpose? Are they pets? Do they grow up cossetted, spoilt and fed to death on sweeties? Does he need them to define the reality of his realm? And if Toby grows up and Sarah tells him what happened, does there ever come a day when he starts resenting her for stealing that opportunity from him? Does he ever try to convince her to send him back? Or, what happens if, rather than her winning him back, there's an AU where they end up trapped in that realm forever? Or what if she lost, but managed to get back to search for him as an adult, but he didn't want to go?

Alternatively, Jareth and Sarah! Let's look at a quote:

 

Everything that you wanted I have done. You asked that the child be taken. I took him. You cowered before me, I was frightening. I have reordered time. I have turned the world upside down, and I have done it all for *you*! I am exhausted from living up to your expectations. Isn't that generous?

 

Um. Yes. Interesting relationship there! Her brain has locked in that the Goblin King is frightening, and so he is obligingly terrifying. There are a lot of really dark places I can see that relationship going, and I am happy to read all of them (although possibly have enough years pass so that she's aged up a bit, even if she never gets enough space to breathe and lose that naivety?) He's already demonstrated that he's prepared to use her friends to hurt her, and he doesn't yet think that he's being cruel. What happens when he is cruel, please?

Happy to go as dark as you like with this fandom, no happy ending required :-)
 

The Queen's Thief - Megan Whalen Turner  
Summary

Normally I would eat political fic in this fandom up with a spoon. However I am 7 and a bit months pregnant, suffering severe baby brain, and my brain just won't focus on complex political plots so if you could focus more on the relationship side that would be awesome.

Attolia and Eugenides and their wonderfully disfunctionally functional relationship! Give me arguments and making up, the awkwardness of nightmares when your wife caused them, the to and fro of two people used to getting their own way having to work out how to negotiate without anyone getting executed or poisoned. Or give me pregnant Attolia having to work around how much of a pain in the ass pregnancy is, particularly if you're a control freak, and having to hand over more to Gen out of necessity - which neither of them particularly enjoy when it comes down to it.

Or Eddis and Eugenides! You could go with fic with them back in the past, with Gen getting tormented by his cousins and trying to convince her to help against them, the big meanies, while blatantly being as bad as they are if not worse. Or with Gen actually needing help after his mother died and his father wanted him to be someone else but refusing to accept it, because it's Gen. Or with Gen explaining that no, really, gods are real, no look I know I lie a lot but not this time. Or Eddis explaining to a not-exactly-willing Gen about the volcano and what he needs to do.

 

Firefly 
Summary

"River was more than gifted. She was a gift. Everything she did, music, math, theoretical physics—even dance—there was nothing that didn't come as naturally to her as breathing does to us."

I love this description and I love the episode of young Simon and River flashbacks. I love the idea of young Simon, maybe competing with her at first, and then just realizing this was not something where he was even in the same league and just trying to nurture that gift instead.

I would like this to be pre-show and pre-kidnapping. I'm up for kidfic, jealousy that resolves itself, over-protectiveness. If you want to go unhealthy with this relationship I can totally see it going into co dependence too. We already know Simon was gifted - could he have been even more so if he hadn't, at an early age, dedicated himself to protecting River? Did his parents tell him "you're the oldest, this is expected of you"? Did River ever wish he would think of himself more?

Will (Tripods - Christopher Will's Master (Tripods - Christopher) Fritz's Master (Tripods - Christopher) Fritz (Tripods - Christopher)

Summary

This is about as dark as a series of childrens' books is allowed to get and I would really like you to go darker.

Book 2 has really far too many loving descriptions of Will's Master lovingly caressing him for anyone to ignore. If you want to go either dubcon (as Will pretty much has to pretend to enjoy it to keep up the show) or noncon here (Fritz's Master I suspect would definitely make any experimentation painful and humiliating on purpose), I will be very happy.

If you don't want to go with that, I'd just like to stick with as dark as possible, please :-) The things that Fritz doesn't talk about in order to spare Will. The way he feels sending Will off and staying. Things that Will saw off-scene, people that he talked to, the sensation of creeping horror.. Or if you want to focys on the Masters, maybe looking at what happened to their previous slaves. As explicit as you want is fine, and this is one where I'm really not looking for a happy ending. The only thing I'd prefer to avoid here is PWP, otherwise you have a free hand.

I know I have four characters listed, but as long as it involves at least one human (not even necessarily our on-screen two!) and one Master I'm happy.

Fandom: Sophie's Snail - Dick King Smith

Sophie (Sophie series) Dawn (Sophie series)

I'd like to go with these two growing up and maintaining their rivalry. Sophie is, obviously, a lady farmer. What is Dawn? Maybe she's a civil servant working for DEFRA, or in some other position where they will butt heads? Maybe they just get invited to the same family parties? Maybe their mothers do that politely competing while having tea thing. Obviously, their relationship has to be more civilised now, but that doesn't mean nicer!

The one thing I'd like to avoid here is making Dawn evil. She's different to Sophie, but I'd prefer her to be a character in her own right.

Totally open to them somehow coming to a way of understanding by the end, and cameos by other characters are welcome.

A Brother's Price - Wen Spencer

Jerin Whistler

So, a lot of horrible things happen to Jerin in the books, and yet he always gets rescued just before they get really really bad. I'd really like you to go past that point somewhere and be even meaner to him - sell him to a family he didn't want to go to (his sisters are sorry about it, but they already committed to pay a giant debt with his price), or he ends up in a crib, or sold to a family where the crown seizes their assets including him.

How would he cope if he'd ended up going to the Brindles after all? Or if Halley had been just a bit slower and he'd gone to Kij? (That one could really be interesting because even before she kidnapped him there were definite creepy overtones about what she'd like to do to him). Or if you don't like AUs, maybe he starts meeting the guys in higher society who really didn't get served well by the system - the ones who they talked about where the risk was suicide and his brides trying to claim their money back.

Absolutely fine with angst, dubcon and noncon here. Also fine with an eventual happy ending (or happyish? Maybe the princesses can't take him as husband but he ends up official mistress or something?)

Hope that suits you, and good luck! Don't worry, I'm sure you'll be fine!

So I apparently started the new year by beating myself up with a TINY CARDBOARD TAG in the night. Seriously, there's blood all over the bed. WTF, world?

Went to toilet in night, got back in, scratched hip on something, went "ow". Couldn't find anything, still halfasleep, thought it must have been oddly sharp feather, went back to sleep.

In morning, my trousers slip down my hip, Hugh goes "OW" and touches SEVERAL INCHES LONG SCRATCH over my hip. Investigate, there is a tiny stiff cardboard tag (the sort you get on clothes) in bed and blood all over sheet (seriously all over sheet. I apparently rolled about. There are spatter patterns).

If I stretch my hand out the cut goes from the tip of my thumb to the tip of my middle finger. I repeat, TINY CARDBOARD TAG. How?
Mood:: 'confused' confused

Due to our Order of Service getting printed on the wrong card and subsequently reprinted, we have approximately 130 spares if anyone would like a copy posting after the honeymoon.

Also, NOT LONG NOW!
