Meme (Criss Cross Kind)  
I'm in sort of a depressed mood tonight due to non-school related (for once!) RL issues.

To take my mind off of it, I'm indulging in this meme that's a redux of a previous one I did:

Give me two fandoms I'm a fan of and/or have written for and I'll describe to you how the crossover could happen.

I am sorry RL has been bad for you. I dont know what to say to make it better. I hope stuff resolves itself.

I am so bad at giving prompts, you know me, obsessed with Dresden Files. But as I said since you began saying Grimm is getting "grimmer" its been a temptation to see those episodes and see how it would fit with DF! ;) :D

But please leave it when better prompts come along, I am totally too predictable! ;)

As said before I hope stuff gets better in your life! Hang in there! :)

The Dresden Files/Grimm crossover!

Trail of Bread Crumbs

A fuchsbau comes to Harry in Chicago, begging the wizard for help. She tells Harry all about the world of Wesens and how the latest Grimm is out to kill her because that's their job, etc. Despite Harry's insistence that he'll help, she ends up dead. Because he's Harry and he's driven by a sense of duty and guilt, he follows the clues back to Seattle where he meets up with newbie Grimm, Nick Burkhardt.

Did Nick kill the innocent fuchsbau? Considering that Reapers and Hexenbiests are determined to see Nick dead, Harry might just be a pawn in a very large game.

Heee! :) This is great! This should be made into an episode! :) How do you come up with such great stories?

Monroe and Bob comparing who would be worse at killing and bringing doom to the world Nick or Harry!!! >:D

How is life doing? I hope its better even if today was Monday. :)

Sorry life is getting you down.

Do you realize how hard it is to give you two fandoms for which you haven't already written crossover fic? Yeah, I suppose you didn't rule that out, but what would be the fun in redoing one you've done?

How about Sherlock and Torchwood? (I'm not certain you haven't done that; if you prefer, Sherlock and Death in Paradise. I haven't seen the latter yet, but I'm pretty sure you haven't done a crossover there.)

'Tis true. I do love them crossovers.

The Sherlock/Death in Paradise Crossover!

Two of Everything

A man named Jonah dies rather spectacularly and very much completely in front of Sherlock and John during one of their cases. Two days later, Jonah's seen very much alive in St. Honore. Baffled and more than intrigued, Sherlock and John go to this spot of paradise to seek Jonah out as they need him to finish up the actual case. Problem is that it's definitely Jonah (not a twin) but he seems completely puzzled as to what Sherlock's talking about as he hasn't left St. Honore in months. And then people around him start dying.

DI Poole is less than pleased at having some non-official "consulting detective" running all over his island. Particularly one has irritating as Sherlock. Camille, Dwayne and Fidel can't decide if having two obsessive Englishmen dressed for winter in tropical weather is annoying or the funniest thing ever.

I really, really want to see Death in Paradise—sigh. I wonder if BBCA is waiting for more episodes before they showed it? They waited to have two seasons of Primeval before starting it for Americans.

I think I would appreciate your story more if I knew Camille, Dwayne, and Fidel, but it makes me smile even though I don't. I hope John can find an ally among them.

I'm sorry life isn't great for you. *huggles* Hope things look up for you soon!

I will give you a cracky option: Merlin and Cabin Pressure
And a less cracky option: Sherlock and due South

Use or don't use as you see fit.

I love crack because it gives me free rein to let my imagination run wild with little thought to whether or not any of it even makes sense!

The Merlin and Cabin Pressure crossover!

In Flight Entertainment

The latest magical person tries to kill Arthur by making sure he was never born but in his enthusiasm botches the spell instead accidentally transports Arthur and Merlin to the very much distant future. They also land somewhere in Spain and have to get back to Wales in order to do a spell to return to their own time. Luckily for them, there is a small charter airplane that'll take them.

Cue Arthur Shappey wanting to constantly talk to Arthur about how great it is being named Arthur. Cue Merlin trying to subtly use his magic to get the plane to go faster but makes things so much worse since he doesn't really get how a plane works. While Martin wrestles with the flight control system constantly going wonky (even more so for Gertie), Douglas muses on the fact that these cosplay people really do take their make believe games seriously.

Oh man, I want this story to exist so badly. This is, to quote one Arthur, brilliant!
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on May 15th, 2012 03:39 am (UTC)
I really wish I could find my inner Cabin Pressure but I often can't think of how the characters would talk. John Finnemore's style is un-replicable! At least for me.

Still, I do like the idea of Merlin initially trying to get the plane to go faster by making the wings actually go up and down which causes Martin to have a panic attack.
The Writer They Call Tay: CP: Captain Martinawanderingbard on May 15th, 2012 12:38 pm (UTC)
I'm not so bad with the voices I don't think, but I find it hard to put action between the dialogue because we don't really know how the characters move or what the inside of the plane really looks like or even what the characters really look like. I find myself with long strings of back and forth dialogue, with no context or action.

OMG, I love that! I can picture Martin flailing over the controls because there's no button to fix the problem.
