Cordelia... it's an interesting name, what if it ran in the Chase family? And a distant descendent of a cousin still has the name, now Cordelia Vorskosigan nee Naismith, mother of Miles Vorskosigan.

It might be VERY tempting for the Ascended Cordy to check up on her family from time to time, as well as keeping track of the distant descendents of the Scoobies and fang gang. And, of course, their paths might cross now and again... Not asking for anything in this apart from an interesting plot. Any ship or none, any genre, I really don't care.

Before writing this you really need...

AU from HP book 5, BtVS S5 - Fired from his job as Minister, Cornelius Fudge delves into old magic and somehow learns of the power of Glorificus. He cuts a deal - if she'll take down Voldemort and help him get back in power, he'll use all of the resources of the Ministry to help find the Key. Once he sees what Glory can do he's too scared not to...

So there's a sudden end to the war, leaving Harry and the Order etc. trying to figure out what Fudge and his mysterious "adviser" are up to, and lots of brain-sucked muggles turning up while the Ministry is still looking for the Key.

BtVS- Post S5 / Universal Soldier

Adam wasn't the first government project Maggie Walsh worked on - she was part of the US Government's ill-fated Universal Soldier programme, before being recruited into the Initiative. With terrorism again on the rise the Universal Soldier programme is revived, and suitable bodies are being taken to new laboratories for reanimation and use as virtually unkillable super-soldiers.

Unknown to the Scoobies, the remnants of the Initiative have been keeping Buffy under observation - when she dies at the end of Season 5 a commando team steals the b...

Simple idea - in the immediate aftermath of The Gift Buffy's grave is robbed by the mad scientist of your choice; some possibilities:
- Frankenstein
- An Igor from the Discworld
- A Spark from the (HIGHLY recommended) Girl Genius web comic
- Aliens planning to use it as the controller for a giant robot or battle-tank, or as a computer (see e.g. Keith Laumer's "A Plague of Demons" and the Star Trek episode Spock's Brain)
- someone building a cyborg or planning to clone her.

Whatever, the grave-robbers steal Buffy's brain and put it into a new body.

No, I ha...

One of the most common mistakes on Twisting the Hellmouth is the spelling of "Los Angeles" as "Los Angelus" - maybe it's the spelling checker's fault.

The challenge is pretty simple - assume that it isn't a typo, and write a crossover that explains how LA came to be named after the leader of the Scourge of Europe. This might be a crossover with a historical story or time travel, or anything else you like. The only restriction is that it must be the real name of the city, not just a joking name used by people who know about Angel.

Just an odd thought for a crossover for any show which has Irish or Irish-descended characters; before Angel ever became a vampire, he was a young libertine in Ireland. What if he happened to father an illegitimate child or two along the way, and didn't kill them after he was turned? And found out in the present day and decided to trace his descendents - or as Angelus decided to kill them? Or after Angel is killed (Not Fade Away didn't end happily) someone goes looking for his relatives to settle his estate?

The most obvious character to come to mind is, of course, that fine outstandi...

A fairly logical train of thought:

1: James Potter's animagus form was a stag.
2: Harry Potter's patronus is a stag.
3: James was staggeringly wealthy - the source of his fortune has never been fully explained.
4: One of his best friends was Remus, a werewolf
5: The sorting hat thought that Harry would make a good Slytherin.
6: Another name for a stag is "hart"

Putting these facts together, the conclusion is obvious, I think - James Potter was the heir to the vast Wolfram and Hart fortune, the human avatar of the Hart. For some reason he wanted nothing to ...

Someone has killed the entire cast of Smile Time, one of the most popular children's programs - and although thousands of children must have seen the show, none of the crew or audience seem to be able to describe the assassin. Something very strange is going on - is ace reporter Kermit Frog up to the challenge of finding the killer and bringing him (her, or it) to justice?

Any length, any pairing or none, humour preferred.

When Willow sacrificed a baby deer to bring Buffy back, she didn't know that she was awaking a primal force beyond all human comprehension. Angered by the death of his son, Bambi is back... and this time he's mad, and determined to get his revenge on Willow and the Scoobies.

OK, I know this is a VERY silly idea - maybe throw in an additional crossover (e.g. The Crow) to give Bambi more survivability. Or Highlander - "There can only be one stag!" Or make him a nature god / spirit.

Have fun...

Here's a hundred-word drabble, introducing a VERY AU version of Veronica Mars. I'll also be posting it as a story.


Friends Help You Move...

She looks at the body again and winces. There's not much of his head left.

"He was trying to kill me," she says to herself. "Not like I had a choice."

The trouble is.... The trouble is why he was trying to kill her. If the police find out she'll probably end up in jail.

She can't think straight... can't even understand how she fought him off. Except that somewhere in the back of her head a voice still asks ...

Everything on BtVS was a lie, part of a "reality show" staged with VERY advanced technology - say equivalent to a Star Trek holodeck. Xander is the unwitting star of the show, everyone else is an actor or a hologram - or another dupe if you like. It started out as a simulation of small-town America, but when Xander was 15 a new producer took over and decided to add some new characters and a horror element. Since then it has got increasingly far-fetched and violent, and accidents are inevitable; Xander and the actors close to him have been injured several times, and there's pressure to end the ...

2004. With large swathes of LA destroyed by demons, some of it on prime-time TV, the world has learned that the supernatural exists. Now the Slayers are the glamorous face of the War On The Demonic, and everyone, especially Hollywood, wants a piece of the action.

The challenge is to rewrite any action-adventure film made from 2004 onwards (or earlier if you want to write a remake), as it would have been made if it were known that vampires and Slayers existed. For obvious legal reasons real characters can't easily be used, so Buffy Summers becomes Billy Winters, Spike becomes Meathook,...

A bunch of VERY brief crossover ideas I thought of while looking through a stack of laserdiscs and tidying some books and trying to remember what was on my defunct USB memory stick.

1: Volcano: It's set in LA, it's got a volcano, what more do you want? Maybe Wolfram and Hart summoned it in some way, maybe it's what's left of the area around the Hyperion after Not Fade Away, maybe mad cultists decide that the One Ring (currently incarnated as Dawn Summers) needs to be sacrified there. I took a very brief crack at this in Tales from The Barman

Incidentally, there's a lovely pan...

Crossover with John Wyndham's The Midwich Cuckoos (filmed as Village of the Damned) and/or other fiction.

Everyone in Sunnydale falls asleep one night and doesn't wake for 48 hours. (This includes humans, vampires, demons, cats, dogs, etc.). Anyone entering the area also falls asleep, including the pilots and crew of planes flying overhead.

Some time after the effect ends it's discovered that some or all of the women in Sunnydale are pregnant, including all of the Buffyverse women present at the time - for example, in S2 this could include Buffy, Joyce, Willow, Cordelia, Jenn...

One of the reasons why we tend to think of Buffy as a special Slayer, even when hundreds have been activated, is that she was being watched by Whistler, Angel, etc. even before she became a Slayer.

But what if all of the potentials were under similar scrutiny; not just Buffy but Faith, all of their predecessors, and all of the new Slayers Willow triggered? Yes, even Kennedy... What if every one of them had someone like Whistler steering them towards their eventual destiny? And what if the PTBs have to call in help to handle the extra workload as the S7 apocalypse approaches?
