Fandom-specific stuff:

Anno Dracula (Characters: Any, thus I believe Kostaki, Genevieve, Mina, Victoria)
If Genevieve or Kostaki take your fancy, I'd really like to see some backstory fic, either focussing on one point in their lives (either warm or vampire) or a series of snapshots. The older vampires are just really fascinating in terms of the variety of different experiences they must have had and things they must have had to adapt to over the centuries, so anything that strikes your fancy there would be really interesting to see.
For Mina and/or Victoria, I'd really like to see more of Dracula's rise to power and/or life in his court from their point of view, as essential but less-than-ecstatic instruments of that rise. In the first book they're both clearly very important to what's going on in England without actually appearing very much, so it would be really interesting to have their side of the Anno Dracula story.
If none of that catches your attention, general world-building (with or without any of the named characters) for either Anno Dracula or Bloody Red Baron-era would be awesome as well, maybe if you can think of some aspects of society not covered in the books that would be affected by the whole vampire thing.

Dark Tower (Characters: Roland Deschain, Cuthbert Allgood, Steven Deschain, Jamie De Curry)
As you can probably guess from the character listing, I'm mostly interested in Gilead-era fic for this fandom, though if you want to write something Roland-centric, I'd be more than happy with it being entirely or partially main canon-era - tbh, part of the reason for requesting this fandom at all was rereading Wind Through The Keyhole and Sudden Resurgence Of Interest, so something like that nested structure would be brilliant if you're that way inclined though in no way necessary, especially if you'd prefer not to focus on Roland.
I'd like to see interactions between any of the characters listed, any other canon characters from that era you'd like to make mention of, and ideally some expanded worldbuilding on life in/the society of Gilead. I've included Steven both for if you want to include him in fic featuring the boys or if you'd prefer to focus on him and go back to the Gilead of the generation before Roland's.
Basically, I would really like worldbuilding filtered through character-study or character relationships, whatever aspect of that you'd like to focus on most.

Quatrevingt-treize (Characters: Michelle, Radoub)
I would really, really like to see some post-canon fic featuring these guys. Basically, at the end of the book, Michelle has her children back, but she's still not exactly in an ideal position to be raising them - and it seems unlikely that Radoub &co. would want to leave her in the lurch at this point. So, what happens next to les enfants du bataillon du Bonnet-Rouge and their mother, and what's Radoub's involvement in that like?
(I kind of ship it but that's not compulsory)

Aubrey-Maturin (Characters: Jack, Stephen, Sophie)
I would really like to see fic about the interactions/relationships between these characters - maybe all three of them, maybe any two. Maybe Jack/Sophie, and some scenes from their family life, maybe Jack & Stephen (this is the meat and drink of the fandom, I'm sure you can come up with something there :p), maybe Stephen & Sophie's friendship - or really any combination of the above, and how those relationships intertwine and fit together. Slice-of-life stuff is what I'm hoping for here, though if it develops plot that would be amazing.

Once and Future King series - T. H. White
This is the MY CHILDHOOD request, basically. I'm afraid I can't give you much detail for what I want here, not because I'm not keen on getting it, but because chances are I'll be happy with pretty much anything you do with any of the nominated characters, all of whom I do love dearly. I particularly love White's characterization of Lancelot, if you want to work with that.

A Study in Emerald - Neil Gaiman
Worldbuilding! Pretty please? An expansion of the setting of this, along with some glimpses of what Holmes and Watson are up to, and how they're different from their ACD counterparts and why, and what life in general is like in ASiE Britain, would be amazing. Bonus points if you can find a way to tie it into another of the ACD stories, but I recognize that that could be really difficult, so it's definitely not a requirement, just something that might be cool if you felt up to it.

Thankyou again, and much love!

First up, sorry I didn't get around to posting this until after assignments went out - if you'd already come up with ideas before you saw this, do feel free to go with those, anything in here (apart from my fairly short list of hard squicks) is totally flexible and I'm sure I'll like whatever you come up with.

(People who actually follow my journal, sorry letters like this is basically all I use it for...)

Also, a note - obviously I am not going to give spoiler warnings for the historical RPF fandoms, but for most of my fictional requests I am going to be discussing endings/surprise twists/etc., so maybe don't read the sections on anything you haven't already read but are planning to?

I feel like I should note first that I haven't reread any of these in quite some time, and don't have access to any of the books except the Just So Stories (because public domain) and one volume (Charmed Life) of the Chrestomanci books right now, so my prompts may not be as specific or detailed as they might otherwise be.
(They're not going to be hugely specific anyway because mostly I am just...ANYTHING. ANYTHING WILL MAKE ME HAPPY)

This got fairly long, and I'd just like to say: everything I've written is just loose ideas - if you'd rather do something completely different, go for it! I'd much rather read something you enjoyed writing than something you had to force out to fit what I've written here. My list of dislikes is fairly short, and pretty much anything not on there is fair game.

That said:

here goes... )
