Wishlist 2014 - Sign-up Post!

I know, I know, I'm early.

But since I have apparently decided to ring in the Season of Joy with a head cold to end all head colds and might just keel over and rot before tomorrow, you get to start signing up for this wonderful Chistmas tradition (sixth year, let's face it, it's a tradition!) a bit early.

In other words, boys and girls, here we go again.

TL;DR:

Everyone who wants to participate in this year's Wishlist, please leave a comment on this entry.

For details on the Rule and Timeframes, please look up the profile.

As of 2011, the game is played as follows:

Authors can sign up for Half and Quarter Wishlists (meaning 12 or 6 prompts) on top of the regular full Wishlists with 24 prompts. The times for sign up and prompting have also changed.

Artists are welcome to sign up the same way writers do. Their prompts come from authors requesting art of some kind for specific stories they have written.

So sign up here with your name, obviously, your game plan (full, half, quarter) and your... let's call it designation (writer, artist). Don't forget to read the rules through beforehand!!!

When you have signed up here, apply for membership to the community. Unlike last year, I am not kicking out old members and re-entering them later. I have enough work with my actual job. No need to create more for myself. I will approve applications in bulk when sign-ups close on 1st November and kick out anyone who doesn't want to play again.

Prompting will start when sign-ups close on 1st November, not before. Willy-nilly early prompting tends to end in tears, kids, so let's not.

Now, off you pop, writing Christmas-y things.

Pick your Poison:

A Quick Reminder

Sign-ups for the Wishlist 2014 start on Oct. 15th, so if you have stuff from 2013 still flying around, now is the time to post it!

See you in 11 days!

Pick your Poison:

Title: Night of the Living Frustration
Author: jedibuttercup
Disclaimer: The words are mine; the worlds are not
Rating: PG-13
Prompt/Prompter: sulien, who asked for: "Portland has a zombie problem, as reported by the Paranet, and Ramirez has his hands full elsewhere, so Harry gets called in to deal with what he thinks are more Kemmlerites. Harry is in for a real surprise and so are Nick and company."
Spoilers: Post "White Night" in Dresden Files; Season 2 finale for Grimm
Notes: As always with Dresden, the story got away from me. I don't have the time or energy to retell the entire finale at the moment, so this reads more like a prequel to your prompt, but I hope it still satisfies?

Summary: I'd come to Portland on the wings of a panic attack that Mavra might have surfaced again with the Word of Kemmler. But what followed was more Night of the Living Frustration than City War Z. 3200w.

Night of the Living FrustrationCollapse )
Title: shut down the city lights
Author: jedibuttercup
Disclaimer: The words are mine; the worlds are not
Rating: PG-ish
Prompt/Prompter: teaandhoney, who asked for: "Post-NFA, Fred knows the feel of god-kings, perhaps a bit too well. She barely survived last time (didn't really) and doesn't want to get too close this time but she might not have a choice. And Fred has always had a hard time saying no to her boys - even if they change across dimensions."
Spoilers: Post-Avengers but before Thor: The Dark World (MCU); post-series for Angel; no comics
Notes: I had a hard time with this one; comments would be appreciated. Title from the lyrics of "Gone, Gone, Gone".

Summary: She's always had a hard time saying no to her boys, even if they change across dimensions. 2000w.

shut down the city lightsCollapse )
Title: Out of Phase
Author: jedibuttercup
Disclaimer: The words are mine; the worlds are not
Rating: PG-ish
Prompt/Prompter: faithburke, who asked: "The Machine gives them Daniel Osbourne's number."
Spoilers: Post-series for B:tVS; season 2-ish for POI
Notes: Ah, the joys of limited POV. Expands a bit on canon from "Lovers' Walk" regarding werewolves.

Summary: Their research into the Number had hit a number of dead ends early on; he'd lived in a Tibetan monastery for years, and had spent his early life in a town best known as a notorious source for forged documents. 2700w.

Out of PhaseCollapse )
Title: This Is Where Your Book Begins
Author: jedibuttercup
Disclaimer: The words are mine; the worlds are not
Rating: PG-ish
Prompt/Prompter: for kerravonsen, who asked for "More in the More Jean Grey, Less Wolverine 'verse. Been a while since you've written anything for that. Yay Tara!."
Spoilers: Post-series for both B:tVS and Stargate SG-1
Notes: An update for More Jean Grey, Less Wolverine. Title from Natasha Bedingfield's "Unwritten".

Summary: She's home. Seven years and who knows how many light years away-- and she's finally home. 2700w.

This Is Where Your Book BeginsCollapse )
Title: three to make ready
Author: jedibuttercup
Disclaimer: The words are mine; the worlds are not
Rating: PG-13; sort of pre-OT3
Prompt/Prompter: for edenfalling, who asked for "Team Leverage (especially Hardison, Parker, and/or Eliot), 'Let's go steal a Jaeger'."
Spoilers: Post-finale for Leverage; pre-movie for Pacific Rim
Notes: Subtitled in my head, thanks to pprfaith treading this ground before me: "another way Red Thief might have come to be." (Read that fic, too; it's excellent).

Summary: "Let's go steal a Jaeger," Parker said, smiling a wolf's smile. 1600w.

three to make readyCollapse )
Title: a storm with silken reins
Author: jedibuttercup
Disclaimer: The words are mine; the worlds are not
Rating: PG-13; triofic
Prompt/Prompter: for xgirl2222, who wins the prize for most complicated prompt this year, which I'll boil down to "Nick Burkhardt/Buffy Summers/Sean Renard, relationship of equals."
Spoilers: Post-series for Buffy (no comics canon) and post-S2 for Grimm
Notes: This one came out kinda quirky and more gen than not? Title's a Vonnegut quote (about love).

Summary: It wasn't a gentle love that bound them together, Slayer to half-wesen Prince to Grimm. Hunters to one who should have been their prey; servants to one who in another age would have commanded their allegiance. 2500w.

a storm with silken reinsCollapse )

Day 9 . Jorōgumo . Avengers (MCU) x Grimm

Title: Jorōgumo
Author: jedibuttercup
Disclaimer: The words are mine; the worlds are not
Rating: PG; gen-ish
Prompt/Prompter: for pprfaith - "Black Widow isn't just a codename. Natasha is a Wesen."
Spoilers: Post-Avengers but, again, pre-Winter Soldier for the MCU; season 2-ish for Grimm.
Notes: Title is from the Japanese myth about the spider woman used as the basis for the Tarantella episode of Grimm, from which this story draws heavily. And "Kehrseite" is Grimm-verse for "human".

Summary: Black Widow was more than just Natasha's code name. Unfortunately, Burkhardt had already seen that; she wasn't going to get away with playing mostly harmless demoiselle. 1300 words.

JorōgumoCollapse )
Title: Solving for Imaginary Numbers
Author: jedibuttercup
Disclaimer: The words are mine; the worlds are not
Rating: PG; gen-ish
Prompt/Prompter: for milady78 - "Sorcerer's Apprentice/Person of Interest. Balthazar + Reese + Finch, the Machine gives Balthazar's number."
Spoilers: Indeterminate season of POI; post-movie for Sorcerer's Apprentice
Notes: As with many of my POI crosses, the full story would really be out of the scope of a short-fic challenge like this one; but hopefully this gives a good taste. More or less set in my 10% 'verse, but stands alone.

Summary: To a mind trained to pluck at every loose thread, Blake's story was so obviously a false front that it was beginning to make John wonder if it was hiding something else altogether. 2000 words.

Solving for Imaginary NumbersCollapse )
Title: they call her a liar / they call her a killer
Author: jedibuttercup
Disclaimer: The words are mine; the worlds are not
Rating: PG; gen-ish
Prompt/Prompter: for thady - "Stargate SG-1/The Avengers (MCU). Vala + Natasha, running into each other on a mission."
Spoilers: Post-Avengers but obviously pre-Winter Soldier for the MCU; post-series for SG-1.
Notes: This is the first thing I've written since my dad's sudden death in January; go gentle on me, dear readers.

Summary: Vala knew the woman in the flattering black dress and aptly named stiletto heels for what she was the instant she spotted her across the crowded room. 1700 words.

they call her a liar / they call her a killerCollapse )
Title: Never Recover
Author: sweetiejelly
Fandom: Grey's Anatomy
Characters/Pairing: Teddy/Henry
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 811
Warnings: None.
Prompt/Prompter: moriann: "Teddy/Henry, either a fix-it, or something set during that arc (I loved the terrible date post-mortems they did!)."
Notes: moriann -sorry this is so super late! I had to dig up the videos for this storyline and then RL took over for a bit. But hope this tiny bit of an attempt at a fix-it is okay! :)

Title: Curiosity and the Wolf
Author: teaandhoney / smolder
Disclaimer: I own nothing. The Firekeeper Series is by Jane Lindskold and Stargate SG1 belongs to Stargate belongs to Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner.
Rating: PG
Prompt/Prompter: for sulien who prompted: SG-1 gates to one of the addresses Jack entered into the database when the Ancient device downloaded information into his brain during the season 2 episode "The Fifth Race". It turns out to be Firekeeper's planet and SG-1 run into young Firekeeper and Blind Seer while the two are out hunting some time before Firekeeper leaves to join the humans again. I'd love to see the phrase "You do know the story about the boy who cried wolf..." Or girl who cried wolf, depending on who is the first to see or encounter Firekeeper and Blind Seer.
Spoilers: Pre-Series for the Firekeeper Series and no real spoilers for SG-1 (all of my knowledge for that series is a bizarre amalgamation anyway *laughs*)
A/N:
Summary: "You saw some girl? And she stole your backpack?" he asks Danny again, still feeling a bit irritated at getting woken up, so abruptly, after barely haven slept any. "What, you think this kid is just living with them in the woods or something? Are we talking "Call of the Wild", here?" Jack asked, only half sarcastically.

Title: I Don’t Need Much (To Keep Me Warm)
Author: verucasalt123
Fandom: Supernatural (Sam/Dean)
Summary: Sam thought it might all be a little too much, or maybe even not enough, so realizing that it was exactly right was a bit of a surprise.
Prompt/Prompter: wishlist_fic for saltandbyrne’s prompt: Sam/Dean, makeshift Christmas dinner
Rating: NC-17

Title: When One Gate Closes
Author: jedibuttercup
Disclaimer: The words are mine; the worlds are not
Rating: PG; gen-ish
Prompt/Prompter: for morgynleri_fic - "The Avengers/Stargate SG-1. Instead of landing among the Chitauri, Loki lands pretty much in front of Ba'al. Both see a potential ally."
Spoilers: Post-Thor but pre-Avengers for the MCU; post-series for SG-1.
Notes: Refers glancingly to the premise of "Continuum" as regards Ba'al's character arc post-show, but you don't need to have seen it; the fic should be clear enough.

Summary: "I am Loki of Asgard, little god. Imprison me if you dare." 1300 words.

When One Gate ClosesCollapse )
Title: that kind of luxe just ain't for us
Author: jedibuttercup
Disclaimer: The words are mine; the worlds are not
Rating: PG; gen-ish
Prompt/Prompter: for kerrykhat - "Buffy Summers + Jenny Mills; Normal Again!AU; vampires might not actually exist, but that doesn't mean that evil isn't out there."
Spoilers: Post-"Normal Again", in the canon AU; mid-Season 1 for Sleepy Hollow
Notes: I know. I know; sorry for the delay. Happy Holidays! Title from the lyrics of that earworm "Royals", by Lorde.

Summary: Now that she was out of the psych ward for good, there was a call Jenny needed to make. 1000 words.

that kind of luxe just ain't for usCollapse )

Day 24: What are Friends for?

Title: What are Friends for?

Fandom: Grimm
Character/Pairing: Nick Burkhardt/Monroe (This is more implied then anything and can be taken as friendship.)
Rating: PG
Word Count: 966
Warnings: None
Prompt/Prompter: pan_to_ffel: What if there would not have been a police rescue team at the end of 'Last Grimm Standing'. (No Death,please ;-) ) How did they manage to escape by themselves and how do they recover from physical and psychological damage? Or how does this change their relationship?

author: pprfaith
title: barefoot
summary: In which Buffy keeps waiting for the other shoe to drop. Threesome.
warnings: Buffy and her bad luck in love. Avengers canon.
length: 4.2k
disclaimer: As always, I own nothing.
prompt:xgirl2222 asked for, Buffy/Avengers, Steve/Buffy/Bucky AKA Winter Soldier, Buffy has been dating Steve for 6 months and it's been perfect. That's why she's been waiting for the shoe to drop the past 3 months. Said shoe seems to have taken the shape of Steve's former brain washed, best friend/lover/enemy who she may or may not have had a brief affair with before dating Steve (What! Deniability is one of her best friends). By the way they both look at each other, Buffy is sure she's about to be dumped. Except that they look at her the exact same way they look at each other, and both of them seem pretty intent on making her stay. Somewhere Buffy is sure that Lady Luck and Eris are laughing their asses off.
-- I feel like I should have maybe just paraphrased. Also, I’m all upside down this year. Angsty prompts turn cracky, cracky ones angsty.

Since this is the last one from me this year, I wish you all a happy holiday lots of consumerist validation and a good time, whether you celebrate or not.

disclaimer: As always, I own nothing.
prompt: ava_mclean asked for, BtVS, Captain America/Avengers, Buffy Summers, Steve Rogers, It was both endearing and irksome to work with someone that insisted on opening the door for a girl when not on missions. (Doesn't need to be a pairing.)
- Turned into one, anyway. And somehow, Tony got cast as the sassy gay friend who isn’t gay. Also, crack. I am so sorry, dear, except I’m not.
