Pick a trope from this list and provide a fandom/pairing and I’ll tell you something about the story I’d write for that combination (i.e. write a snippet from the story or write not!fic or tell you the title and summary for the story I would write)
1. genderswap 2. bodyswap 3. drunk!fic 4. huddling for warmth 5. pretending to be married 6. secretly a virgin 7. amnesia 8. cross-dressing 9. forced to share a bed 10. truth or dare 11. historical AU 12. accidental-baby-acquisition 13. apocalypse fic 14. telepathy 15. High School / College AU
With the caveat that I have absolutely no interest in “secretly a virgin”, so instead that one can be your trope wildcard. Give me your favorite trope not on the list instead. :)
^^^including caveat above about the virginity thing, and make ‘pretending to be married’ into ‘pretending to be in a romantic relationship’. And ‘betting’ for ‘truth or dare’.
Taking the above bolded into account, too. Ahh I make no promises on responding to all of them but I’ll try to write for any of these pairings:
basically almost any possible ship in Ashita no Nadja
I don’t really ship romantically in Animorphs but feel free to try to inspire me
The first of several prompts from froth: Haruhi/Karou, forced to share a bed (Ouran High School Host Club).
Haruhi is both a colder and a kinder bed-mate than Hikaru. She doesn’t roll over and cuddle in the middle of the night (which is a damn shame), but she also doesn’t kick you to the far side of the bed by thrashing around in her sleep, and Kaoru likes that.
Besides, when he half wakes up and turns over and his forehead brushes against hers, it makes him feel warm and safe. Not as safe as with Hikaru, but still good. A different kind of nice thing. And he rests his hand over hers and lets his eyes flutter shut again, and as he falls back to sleep he thinks this wasn’t such a bad arrangement after all.
(I didn’t really bother finishing the anime but I was really into the manga).
Like, we can go on about how Madoka Magica showed us how messed up the idea of having young girls suddenly have the weight of the world on their shoulders, and that’s totally true.
But Magic Knight Rayearth also critiqued the magical girl trope, by saying what if these noble, innocent girls were asked to do something absolutely cruel under the guise that they were saving the world.
If CLAMP had raised the target age group for Magic Knight Rayearth, they could have made it so incredibly dark. I almost think the second trilogy was something they were pressured to make because the ending of the first trilogy was too horrific after letting their fans think it was a cutsey comic book series for two and a half volumes.
