Sherlock: The heart will burn
The Crossovering challenge is afoot again! Am I crazy for taking this on while so many other things are happening this fall? Probably! Ha ha ha oh god.

Dear Writer,

I am very excited for this challenge, as I love crossovers and fusions with the passion of a thousand fiery suns. Thank you in advance for doing this!

First of all, I recognize that all this is optional, so please don't take any of the following as demands, more like a continental breakfast of possible ideas. I usually have more fun reading something the writer is really passionate about, rather than something shoe-horned in to a stringent set of requirements, so feel free to disregard anything here that doesn’t float your boat.

#1: Being Human/Sherlock (crossover or fusion)
#2: Being Human/Buffy(crossover or fusion)
#3: Star Trek/Dear Evan Hanson (fusion fic)
#4: Heroes/Marvel (crossover or fusion)
#5: Marel/Valdemar (fusion fic)
#6: Marvel/Black Jewels (fusion)
#7: Heroes/Valdemar (fusion)
#8: Sherlock/Valdemar (crossover or fusion)

General likes: I like M/M slash or gen. I like a lot of different pairings. In terms of genres, I really like angst, hurt/comfort, action-adventure, mystery, and mind-fuckery. I like ladies being awesome. I enjoy reading about most kinks, and am fine with dark stuff (non/dub-con, violence, etc.). Any rating is ok.

General dislikes: Genre-wise, I am not a fan of crack, fluff, or kidfic. I would prefer not to receive fic that includes scat and watersports, blood play, mpreg, or misogyny. I would prefer to avoid explicit het. Crossover-specific dislikes include "meta" crossover (where characters in Fandom A have seen the movie the Fandom B character come from) or same-actor-different-character-meet-each other.

Generic Prompts: Could be used for any fandom combo!
1. swallowing pride to ask for help
2. trapped/captured together
3. thrill-seeking or self-destructive behavior
4. mistaken for enemies/mistaken identity
5. someone's past coming back to haunt him/her

Favorites Characters/Pairings: Within my eligible fandoms, here are characters and combos I particularly love:
Black Jewels: Daemon, Jaenelle, Lucivar, Saetan, Tersa
Marvel Cinematic Universe: Steve/Bucky, Steve/Sam, Sam/Bucky, Sam/Bucky/Steve, Nakia/T'challa, M'Baku, Shuri, Tony/Steve, Tony/Steve/Bruce, Tony&Bruce,
Sherlock: Everyone. Sherlock/John, Mycroft/Lestrade, Mycroft/Sherlock, any combo of those. Moriarty/Sherlock.
Star Trek AOS: Kirk. Chekov. Kirk/McCoy, Sulu/Chekov, McCoy/Chekov, Kirk/Spock, basically any combo of those.
Valdemar: any canon pairing. I especially love the Vanyel-era, but later Valdemar (Queen Selenay's time) is good too.
Being Human (UK): Mitchell, George, and Annie. (Note: I've only seen the first three seasons)
Heroes: Nathan, Peter, Sylar, Mohinder, Matt, Hiro, Elle, Adam.
Buffy: Willow, Giles, Spike, Buffy, Wesley

Characters and pairings I would prefer not to focus on: These are not my fave characters. It doesn't mean I hate them! They'd be fine as part of an ensemble, and pairings would be fine in the background, I'd just prefer the fic not to revolve around them.
Black Jewels: Surreal
Marvel Cinematic Universe: Clint/Coulson, Thor/Loki
Sherlock: Irene, Molly/Sherlock
Star Trek AOS: Scotty, Scotty/Chekov
Buffy: Xander
Being Human: any characters beyond Season 3
Heroes: Nikki

Crossover Character/Pairing Prompts: Ideas for characters I'd love to see interact, either gen or romantically, as indicated. Not an exhaustive list (amazingly), just some suggestions (organized alphabetically by fandom)

Details for each request
#1: Being Human (UK)/Sherlock (crossover or fusion)
I love the idea of mixing the Being Human characters' general down-to-earthiness and relatively bumbling ways with the sharpness of Sherlock.

Character combinations that might be fun:
Mitchell and Sherlock
George and John
Mitchell and Moriarty
Annie and Lestrade

Prompt ideas:
I'd be interested in any of the Sherlock characters being secretly a part of the Supernatural world. Maybe Lestrade or John is a werewolf, or Mycroft is a vampire. Or one of the Sherlock gang run across evidence of the supernatural and investigate.

#2: Being Human (UK)/Buffy the Vampire Slayer (crossover)
Since werewolves and vampires exist in both these universes, I'd be interested to see how these characters interact, and who has history with whom.

Character combinations that might be fun:
Annie and Willow
Mitchell/Spike or Mitchell and Spike
Wesley Wyndam-Price and George

Prompt ideas:
Maybe Mitchell is an old contact of Giles, or Spike knows him from back in the day, and they need some information. Perhaps Willow is investigating some magic energy and runs into Annie. Or Buffy's just on the hunt and the Being Human crew has to scramble to stay out of the way.

#3: Star Trek/Dear Evan Hanson (fusion fic)
I know this seems bananas, but hear me out. Listening to So Big/So Small made me think of Winona Kirk, and then I started thinking about how desperate Jim Kirk was to get people to like him, and how tempting it would be to use his incredible charm to weave an elaborate lie. I was thinking of McCoy in the Zoe role, but I'd be happy with someone else, too.

#4: Heroes/MCU (crossover or fusion)
Superheroes, amirite?

Character combinations that might be fun:
Mohinder and Bruce
Tony and Nathan or Tony/Nathan
Steve and Hiro
Peter Petrelli and Peter Parker
Elle and Natasha
Adam and Loki

Prompt ideas:
No matter whether this is a more Heroes-like universe or a more MCU-like universe, I'd like to see how these characters' abilities could be useful to each other, or just how they'd get along. Maybe two of them show up at the scene of an emergency and have an impromptu collaboration. Maybe one sees another using powers and is suspicious they might be an enemy. Any combination of Heroes/MCU folks is fine by me.

#5: Valdemar/MCU (fusion)
I just like putting the MCU characters in different situations, OK! The idea here is seeing how the MCU characters would fare in Valdemar. How do their powers and abilities translate into that magic system?

Prompt ideas:
Maybe Tony is a Herald Mage trying innovative new ways to protect the kingdom, though his Companion Jarvis sometimes worries he's taking things too far. Or Steve and Bucky grow up together dreaming of being Chosen, and Steve's devastate when Bucky goes off to Haven without him, until he develops powerful Gifts himself. Or Clint and Natasha run a mercenary crew who specialize in assisting mages and the Gifted.

#6: Black Jewels/Marvel (crossover or fusion)
I love the peculiar power dynamics of the Black Jewels universe, and would love to see how the MCU characters would work there. I'm totally fine with non-con in this context the way it's used in Black Jewels canon-- if it's set pre-Witchstorm and there are evil Queens enslaving powerful men.

Character combinations that might be fun:
Lucivar and Bucky
Daemon and Steve
Sam and a Kindred bird named Redwing?

Prompt ideas:
Marvel characters as a court! Perhaps a story of what some of them were doing during the war? Or a story of how Daemon or Luciver ran into one of the Avengers during their travels (Lucivar seeing a traumatized Bucky in a mountain training camp somewhere, or Daemon running across Steve and Sam doing their best to fuck up courts they're assigned to while they're slaves)? Or a day in the life of a Queen's court made up of Marvel characters? Or Steve waking up after being unfrozen somehow (maybe he's demon-dead?) and going to Hell to look for Bucky, only to find he's not dead! Or Nakia or Shuri coming into their powers and navigating dealing with a court? Was Wakanda a holdout in Terrielle during the war, or is it in Kaeleer? I'm more interested in having the MCU characters integrated as part of the Black Jewels universe rather than dropping the canon Avengers into the Black Jewels world.

#7: Heroes/Valdemar (fusion)
I chose fusion for this one because I would love to see the Heroes characters translated into the Valdemar universe, and there's so many of them, I think crossing them over with Valdemar characters might be a little too much. But if you want to include a couple Valdemar characters here and there, I'm fine with that, too.

Fave characters:
Peter Petrelli, Nathan Petrelli, Matt Parkman, Mohinder Suresh, Sylar/Gabriel Gray, Adam Monroe, Elle Bishop

Prompt ideas:
I would love to see the Heroes re-imagined as Valdemar characters-- maybe some are Heralds, and they have Gifts that correspond to their canon powers? Perhaps someone's process of being Chosen has some echoes of season one. Perhaps some of the bad guys are evil magic users or enemies of the kingdom. I've listed some of my favorite characters above, but feel free to include anyone!

#8: Sherlock/Valdemar (crossover or fusion)
For this one, I'm more interested in seeing Sherlock characters incorporated into the world of Valdemar than the other way around. I love how John has more traditional "hero" traits, while Sherlock is more likely to be the kind of Valdemar character with exceptional abilities. I'd be perfectly happy with a fusion fic without canon Valdemar characters, just reimagining Sherlock characters in that setting, but if your interests run to including interactions with those characters, go for it!

Character combinations that might be fun:
Vanyel and Sherlock (gen)
John and Talia (gen) (are they both empaths?)
Mycroft and Savil (gen)
John and Kerowyn (gen or romantic)

Prompt ideas: I would love to see Sherlock and John incorporated into Valdemar. Perhaps Sherlock is the temperamental Herald Mage who hasn't been able to hold down a partner, and John was Chosen later in life, after an injury ended his career in the Guards or as a mercenary? Or Sherlock is a haughty violin-playing Bard who keeps getting his long-suffering Guard or Herald escort into ridiculous scrapes? I'm partial to Vanyel-era Valdemar, but Arrows-era is cool, too.

If you still have questions about my likes/dislikes/interests/childhood hopes and dreams, jaune_chat would be a good person to contact.
