Bingo caaaaaard  
It's hc_bingo signup time again! *does a happy little dance*

Although, hc_bingo is also the thing I'm totally the most embarrassed about having on LJ for my non-fandom friends to see. Like, "heeeey guys, I like you lots and I want you to think I'm cool, please don't judge me too much for my weird narrative kinks!"

Anyway. Card.

prostitution trapped between realities first transformation alien abduction electrocution
lacerations / knife wounds slaves kidnapping abuse hostile climate
fall from grace deals with demons WILD CARD gaslighting comfort food or item
planet destruction cuddling time travel gone wrong phobias de-age
nightmares unexpected consequences of planned soulbonding nausea forced to face fear heat stroke

As is customary, I'm taking prompts: particularly for the Toby books and for Star Trek Voyager, since I have recently fallen deeply in love with Janeway and Chakotay and their beautiful platonic devotion to each other and the canon's lovely supply of injurious peril for both. (I've got as far as the start of season 5.)

Also currently fannish about: Criminal Minds, other Seanan McGuire canons, Welcome to Night Vale, Vorkosigan Saga maybe, other things I've probably forgotten about but have read/watched recently. (Due to various factors, I'm on a White Collar break. I still love the canon, I'm just not reading or writing it right now.)

.... you and me both. XD Though it's worse when I actually start posting fics for it, especially since the first one I'm thinking about writing is pretty much straight-up self-indulgent h/c schmoop.

Also, you are awake! This is a surprise. :D

ANYWAY. *looks at your card* *thinks*

I'm on the bus! I have half an hour of netbook time on the way into work. This morning I've put the internet on because I'm in an "I don't waaaaaanna" mood with Artifice so I thought I'd do something else :P

I can't fault your logic.

.... your card is REALLY HARD, though! Lots of magical prompts, or weirdly specific ones. Suddenly I'm feeling much better about mine. XD

Though electrocution is always excellent.

For October Daye, "first transformation" might work for ANY of the shapeshifters! :D Or for Toby, with the shifts in her fae vs human blood ...

"Trapped between realities" also has a certain fairly obvious appeal for the Cait Sidhe, but that one might work nicely for Star Trek too. You could do a Voyager version of the TOS episode Tholian Web, in which a transporter accident strands Kirk between realities and everyone thinks he's dead, but he can still occasionally appear to people as a ghost. It was a lot like the "Crystal Skull" episode of SG1.

"Alien abduction": HALF THE STAR TREK EPISODES IN ANY TREK. XD There is really nothing you can't do with that one in a Star Trek universe.

"Slaves": Star Trek again - forced to labor in the mines of some random mining planet! Stage a slave revolt! :D

Mine are actually quite Voyager-friendly! Since a large proportion of the squares have so far ACTUALLY HAPPENED in the canon...
Frith: Failboatfrith_in_thorns on June 11th, 2014 03:37 pm (UTC)
After careful thought on the bus on the way home I confirm that I can actually fit a Voyager episode to every single one of my squares. And I'm only a little over halfway through the show.

You're depriving me of H/C White Collar and the chance of lots of Neal whump?! *sadface*

I think reading, writing and discussing H/C leaves you open and exposed in ways that other stuff doesn't necessarily (perhaps outside of sexual kinks), so its one of my "oh noes", too.

Perhaps I should get into Welcome to Night Vale...

Now I feel guilty about my White Collar decision ;P Okay, leave me prompts and maybe I will write them as commentfic :)

Yeah, h/c idfic really feels very intensely personal to put out into the internet. Partly because I know that to people who don't get the attraction, the entire thing seems incredibly weird! (At least with sex most people like/understand the desire for it.)

Night Vale is great! I don't really read much fic for it, but I love listening. It's wonderfully surreal.

I haven't any prompt ideas - I just wanted to mention that I love your icon,
Frith: Butter bugsfrith_in_thorns on June 12th, 2014 07:33 pm (UTC)
Aww, thank you! It is my favourite one ever that I've made :D

(It's also totally up for grabs if you want it!)

er, hi.
My sadness at your break from WC fic has caused me to de-lurk from stalking your stories to beg for something Criminal Minds. Reid definitely needs more h/c love from your talented self.

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I really, really enjoy all your h/c fanfics, and they really are timeless, ever so beautiful no matter when they were written. Reading and rereading them never fails to give me all those warm and fuzzy feelings♥ So THANK YOU; I hope all's good with you, and hopefully (please) there'll be more Neal whump from you!! ^_^
