Fanfiction Month

I've decide that November is Fanfiction Month.

This means that during the month of November, and possibly into December - I'm going to try to write some fanfiction. I've got a few ideas, but not that many...and some ideas I'm having trouble with.

1. Merlin/Supernatural crossover - I've mentioned this before, and I know it only appeals to a small niche of you guys, but I AM hoping to get this one done. I started it, and it's probably sitting around 4,000 words or something ridiculous...except that I don't necessarily like all those words, so I'm going to have to take some out and replace them with other words. 

The main problem is that I can't decide what the point of the story should be...which characters I should be exploring, etc. So, here's a question to those who care: If you were to read a story in which Sam and Dean were transported to the Merlin universe...what would you like to happen in the story? (with the caveat that there cannot be a magic reveal...as I'm going to be trying to stick as closely as possible to canon like with my other crossovers)

NOTE:  While we're on the topic of crossovers...I'm not going to write demented'verse fic - because the next story that I have ideas for has to be set in late S8, so I have to probably wait until S8 is over so that I can again keep it close to canon.  I'm also not going to write any further installment of my Merlin/Sherlock crossover because I need to wait for Sherlock S3 before I do that, so that I see how they handle the return.

2. So, during my S7 rewatch, I came up with some ideas as to how S7 might have been written differently...I could, conceivably, write some of these slight AUs. So, that's any idea...but a fairly ambitious one that no one might actually be interested in.

3. I like my headcanon for how the "shift" of Sam's madness to Castiel actually worked, and I could conceivably write something about that...the problem with this idea is that I'd kind of like to see a few more episodes of S8 before I try to write anything. I'm not even sure there would be anything to write.

Other than those three ideas, I really don't have any clue what to write... which is another problem.

But regardless of lack of ideas! I am going to be writing fanfiction this month! It might end up sucking, but I will STILL DO IT.

I want to read the revised story of 'Time for a Wedding' the way it should have been.

Also, in this last episode, how they used the highlighted noises to segue into Sam's flashbacks--I felt cheated because THAT is what should have been happening throughout season 7, even if Lucifer wasn't visible--because the pronounced clanks and whirrs really made me wonder if Sam was losing it.

Cool! Well, even if I'm only writing it for you (and myself) that's enough for me!

Ugh, I know what you mean! I don't think I'll ever really get over the wasted potential with that storyline in S7. They could have done so much with so little.

I'd say that a Merlin/Supernatural crossover would be most interesting set in the present. There's the idea of the Once and Future King, with Arthur returning and Merlin waiting for him.

Hmm, I'm already set out to write it in Merlin's universe though - I've got the general premise and everything. I'll keep your version in mind though. I do like modern-Merlin stories!

To piggyback off borgmama, I'd love to find Becky was really a horrible creature that Dam and Seam had to put down. Also, in that episode, Sam should have lost it to flashbacks when she tied him up. I usually don't talk about that episode because I like to pretend it never happened.

Hmm, I was going change Becky to an OC and have the same basic premise... But yeah, my episode would definitely go the more realistic route - with flashbacks and distress when Sam is tied up.

If Sam and Dean were to be transported to the Merlin universe, I would like them to be knights. As in acting like they're wandering knights from another kingdom, maybe there's a tourney or a joust competition, and they entered it.

And Merlin is assigned to them, and he can sense that they're not from the same time or something, and cue all the talk about the future, with the brothers trying deftly to not tell him what was going to happen (they should be old hats by now, all those time travels had to teach them something :p). And that they know he had magic, but reassures Merlin that he's not going to be discovered.

And I'm not sure which season you're going to set the story in, but if there's Uther and Morgana before she turns evil that would be great. Because reading about Dean trying to flirt with Morgana and Gwen will be hilarious.

I might have been thinking too much about this LOL But yeah, suggestions! :)

I was going to set the story in the 3 years between Merlin S4 and Merlin S5... but your suggestion for seeing Dean flirt is noted. ;)

I was actually going to have Merlin know that Sam and Dean were different from the very start - and them be well aware of each other... Merlin being the first person they meet.

But, there will be plenty of secrets still. ;)

What I'm most concerned about is that I don't know where I want the story to GO. I know how it starts, but I can't figure out how to end it in an exciting fashion. :P
