Some fic I’ve written recently I guess or whatever
fair strange Fandom: Tortall - Tamora Pierce Summary: Daine isn’t the only one struggling with the burden of a strange magic. Part of my “Alanna goes to the convent" ‘verse, and I’m not super happy with it but eh.
Against the tide Fandom: Chalet School - Elinor M. Brent-Dyer Summary: The romantic weekend Katie had planned turns into something of a disaster. But at the former residence of her favourite author Josephine M. Bettany, she meets someone who might just turn that around.
I want a superhero movie where the hero dies in the first ten minutes and the woman who was supposed to be the love interest puts on his costume and becomes an even better hero.
I want all of the advertising to be for the hero and none of the marketing to even allude to this death.
imagine all the male tears
Now that’s a movie
Didn’t this basically happen in The Village? Not a superhero movie, I know, and also The Village, I know, but I definitely remember going in thinking I was going to see a Joaquin Phoenix film and spoilers: I did not.
There was a two (or maybe three) parter with Jaime/Blue Beetle that I never got to do before the rug came out from under us - Steph and Jaime bumping into each other at Spring Break (Jaime had snuck away with Paco) and h-a-t-i-n-g each other. But when Black Manta attacks, Blue Beetle and Batgirl get along great.
Later in the series, there could/would/should have been a sequel story with Jaime visiting Gotham U. and (through a series of unfortunate events) Steph winding up bonded with Scarab, and Jaime having to prove his stuff as a “normal” to save Batgirl and the day.
Also, “Star City Sirens” with Mia/Speedy calling on Batgirl for help when Kara/Supergirl comes down with a case of Red Kryptonite poisoning.
The other day I had a really good idea for a story:
A high school Shakespeare club angrily splits into two groups when they can’t agree on the correct interpretation of Romeo and Juliet. One group thinks it’s a cautionary tale about the stupidity of youth and shallow lust; the other group think it’s a beautiful tragedy about poisonous hatred conquered by love. Reconciliation seems impossible-
-then a person from one group falls in love with a person from the other
#it would be better if somehow EVERY OTHER SHAKESPEARE WAS HAPPENING AT ONCE#like you got a benedict and beatice b-story#and then somebody see’s their dad’s ghost#and there’s cross-dressing#and three upperclassmen tell macbeth he will be drama club president
add a love square which works itself out after a drug-fueled night in the forest and the former headmaster of the school wandering around naked after denying his favourite deputy a promotion and I am so on board
