Since I am now actually almost functioning as a human being again (and therefore can contemplate the idea of fic), and because mariamme
and I have been talking about it:What fandom cliches do you feel are ignored/under-represented in the Merlin fandom?
(I'm thinking I might write a few short fics while working on my boxofmagic
fic. And they might be a bit silly, to counter the serious fic)
Ideas I've had so far:
wingfic (WHY? I DON'T LIKE WINGFIC, BUT BUT BUT... this cliche as been beautifully done by fortassetu
with Arthur as an avenging angel, and there's that lovely drawing by draykonis
, but both were back in the fandom's youth and it might be time to get this cliche out again...)
Forced to be together/bound together.
Stuck in a small space together.
Pretending to be a couple for some reason.
(Also have been talking about AUs. HIGHWAYMEN and Memoires of a Geisha
. So feel free to weigh in on that too)
Basically I want to generate ideas for discussion. Anyone who wants to is free to steal an idea too, obviously.
What's that slightly ridiculous fic/cliche that you just wish
someone would write? PS: YES I am still writing all those other things I've talked about. I'm just a bit of a butterfly about projects. Flower to flower and all that
