graycardinal: Carmen Sandiego (carmen sandiego)

First of all, thank you. This exchange is easily one of the most complicated fic challenges out there, and yet continues to produce some of the niftiest and most purely amazing stories I see over the course of a fannish year.  As a practitioner of the crossover art myself, I am invariably impressed both by the quality of stories that show up here in general – and by the ones that are written for me in particular.  I have no doubt that whatever I receive when the reveal goes live will be wondrous, and for that I am profoundly and unreservedly grateful.

Now, then.  This will be in four, count them four, parts this year, because the pre-exchange brainstorming and rules tweaks this year suggest that the reasons we’re here are more varied than I might have thought.  So what you’ll get first is the “why I’m here” spiel, followed by likes and dislikes, followed by canon-specific notes, followed by notes on my actual request-clusters.

But first you get a cut, because this is long

As a confirmed crossover geek, this is rapidly becoming my favorite annual exchange, even if it is the most complicated. And as always, I am even more than usually grateful and impressed with whatever crossover ends up coming my way as a result. I remain in awe of the folk running this particular venture, because I suspect the matching -- even with AO3's automated engine in play -- is more than usually interesting. Thank you very much for volunteering for this madness, and specifically for your willingness to indulge my particular cross-fannish sensibilities.

Anyhow. Per the usual form of these things, here's a cut, because this is going to be even longer than usual.
And here we go.... )

Out of a good many possible combinations, my story for Crossovering this year ended up being an MCU-meets-NCIS yarn -- more specifically, a hypothetical out-take from Ant-Man, which I think I'll count my second-favorite of this summer's movies after Tomorrowland.  I will observe in my own defense that this is, in fact, a case where the words popped out of the character's mouth before either he or I realized what he was about to say.

Say It With Me
Fandoms: Ant-Man, MCU, NCIS
Written For: sian1359
Characters: Hank Pym, Ducky Mallard
Words: ~1750
Warnings: none (but presumes you've seen Ant-Man)
Rating: G
Notes: This story constitutes a “missing scene” from Ant-Man, taking place following the implosion of PymTech headquarters but before Scott and Hope turn up in Hank’s hospital room. (I am assuming that at least a day passes between those two events.)
Summary:
Hank Pym's visitor shrugged. “I wouldn’t worry. After what happened in Sokovia, no one – well, almost no one – is likely to make much of your little kerfuffle. There are perhaps a dozen people on the planet who could look at that film and see what I did.”


“True, but at least three of them hate my guts.”

First in a quick flurry of posts catching up on the current exchanges:

For Crossovering, I received a highly entertaining ST:TOS/Narnia yarn, complete with wardrobe and faun:

...To Coldly Go...
by foxtwin
Fandom: Star Trek: TOS / Chronicles of Narnia
Characters: Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura, Tumnus, Digory Kirke
Rating: G
Warnings: none
Words: ~ 2600

....this is pretty clearly exactly what would have happened if Our Heroes had beamed down to planet!Narnia. The early-gen tricorder would indeed have gone slowly out of its tiny duotronic mind, Spock would have been mistaken for an Elf...and then, of course, there's the backwards journey into the wardrobe....

As I said last year -- this one is complicated.  Which means I am even more than usually grateful and impressed with whatever crossover you happen to devise in fulfillment of this exchange.  (I am in some awe of the folk running this particular venture, because I suspect the matching -- even with AO3's automated engine in play -- is more than usually interesting.)  Still -- this exchange is very much made for me, as I am nothing if not a serious crossover geek.  Thank you very much for volunteering for this madness, and specifically for your willingness to indulge my particular cross-fannish sensibilities.

Anyhow.  Per the usual form of these things, here's a cut, because this is going to be even longer than usual.
First the general notes.... )
graycardinal: Anya from "Anastasia"; "What was that title again?" (rec)
Written for me in the just-opened collection for Crossovering 2014:

Maps of a Myth by ?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer / Star Trek: Deep Space 9
~2300 words
Rating: teen
Warnings: graphic violence (i.e. high-end Buffyverse slayage)

no, it was a myth, she was a myth...it couldn't be
or
The one where Kira meets Buffy in a forest on Bajor.

I am well pleased. It's an ambitious and interesting fusion, and a thoughtful extrapolation of the Slayer legend into Bajoran context, with an intriguing pre-series Kira Nerys and a scarily competent Bajoran!Buffy, plus bonus points for impressive fight choreography.

I hope to have more recs posted shortly, but dinner and arm-wrestling with my Fic Corner assignment are also beckoning....

Okay, this one is complicated.  Which means I will be even more than usually grateful and impressed with whatever crossover you happen to devise in fulfillment of this exchange.  The more I think about the logistics of this one, the more my mind boggles, and I am a serious crossover geek.  Thank you very much for volunteering for this madness, and specifically for your willingness to indulge my particular cross-fannish sensibilities.

Anyhow.  Per the usual form of these things, here's a cut, because this is going to be even longer than usual.Read more... )
