I like to see a crossover of HP with Buffy and Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop. Here's the scenario I'd like to see... Xander finds out he has relatives in England and arrives at #4 Privet Dr to find Harry just as or within 24 hours of Harry inadvertantly releasing a physic call for help on the Black pathways. Jaenelle, Daemon, and family answer the call of a youngling Warlord Prince in distress. Timeframe Xander is back from Africa, for Harry it is either post 4th or 5th year. Daemon, Jaenelle and company end up rescuing Harry and training him and Xander in Hell, at Saeton's palace.
Hawaii Five-0 - Chin Ho Kelly - Jealous(y) challenge - any pairing - any length:
You can use the prompt as a title, a theme, a line in the story, or however you wish. Let the prompt infect you & carry you to greater heights.
Write a story where a biological weapon that was being created, studied, used, or whatever got loose and everyone in North America was exposed. As a result all females(human and animal) died, it affected the DNA of all males(human and animal) so that no more females can be created and a percentage(you decide how much) of the male population was turned into fertile hermaphrodites. Because the biological weapon tainted the water, soil, plants, insects and animals, it is no longer safe for females to live there.
Long detailed sex scene.
All human hermaphrodites have breasts and waist long hair.
I had this idea for awhile but I know I'll never get it written. So I'm turning it into a challenge instead.
Timeline: Heroes s1 & Dark Angel post-s2
Plot: Hiro accidentally transports himself to the future in the Dark Angelverse. From there he finds out about the Transgenics and the war between them and the humans. He must choose a side. I'd rather he side with the Transgenics. Other future!Heroes characters can be in it but it should be pretty Hiro centric.
Pairings I'm leaving up to you just no Max/Logan, Peter/Simone, Peter/Niki pairings. I personally don't like them but all other pairings are open. Crossover ships are definitely allowed.
House/Wilson: Jealousy gets the better of House when he sees Wilson chatting up someone else (can be an original character, or your choice of cast characters) and 'kidnaps' the man (Wilson) for a sensual weekend alone.
If you would like to have the challenges I'm posting sent to you directly, email me your addie at email@example.com and I'll add you to the contact list
House/Stargate Atlantis crossover.
The setup: Atlantis looks for the best and the brightest minds, right? Well, one of those minds they'd like to recruit is Dr. House. He's a great diagnostician (so maybe he couldn't name the disease in Pegasus galaxy, he'd at least have good ideas about possible causes and treatments), he's able to do some basic medicine and surgery, and the possibility is there that he either has the ATA gene, or the gene therapy would be successful.
So, they try to recruit him, and suprisingly succeed. He and Rodney are like matches and kerosene. Both are rude, abrasive, utterly convinced of their own genius, and delight in having a worthy opponent for battles of wit and snark. (Here's where I have trouble. I can write House. I can even write a passable McKay, but I just don't have enough snark in me for the two of them in one fic.)
Months (a year or two?) go by, and another new face joins Atlantis medical: Dr. James Wilson. He's come to kick House's ass and follow up on a fight that had sent House running, because the worst fight of their friendship had also revealed that one or the other of them had been hiding deeper feelings for the other.
In the end, House and Wilson are happy together, McKay and Sheppard (add in Beckett or Ronon if you're in the mood for it) are happy, and the rest of Atlantis is resigned to the fact that they've now got two annoying geniuses for the price of one.
Slash or Gen. May (or may not) be Tom/Harry. Time travel.
Prompt: Harry went back into the past and staying there for several months/years or (for good) under a false name (or only false surname). After some while, Tom came to this conclusion (or was lead to believe) that Harry is his cousin/brother/half-brother/father, and therefore wants them to become closer (or tries to get rid of Harry). Tom was around 15 and hasn't find the Chamber yet.
Slash or Gen. male/Harry or none. AU, reality travel, time travel.
Harry went through the Arch and found himself in a different reality. Harry became the ward of the Ministry and an Unspeakable his guardian. He was put under a spell to prevents him from ever give away who he really is or where he came from. Harry's new life in other reality/time was a mess and he hate it with a passion. Will he crack or find a way (or someone) to make it his real home?
Prompt A - Confused: Reality Travel. H/C. As he miss the OWLs in the new reality, Harry begins his 5th-year anew under a false name. In this reality, every child, except for the adults either has a different name or a different face to the ones Harry knows. It's really confusing and he wasn't even in Gryffindor this time. The alternate Gryffindor Golden Trio (Neville, Harry and Ron's alternate self) are bullies and Harry is their new target.
Prompt B - Chaos: Time Travel. Harry and Sirius messed up the history unwittingly. Wherein young Sirius hate his new housemate Harry and his dog Snuffles' guts, because he never intent to be a Dalmatian. James fell in love with the wrong person. Moony bit young Percy and turn him into not just a werewolf but his future mate as well. Peter was ate by a basilisk. Mrs. Snapes divorced his husband. Lily got together with a Slytherin. Voldemort keeps a cat as pet and changes his standpoint.
Prompt C - Dissimilar: Reality Travel. AU. Harry the abandoned Potter heir who was raised by Tom Riddle Jr. arrived in a reality where his alternate self was the so call Chosen One and his mentor the Drak Lord. Dumbledore wants him to help defeat Voldemort, the Order trusted him as far as they can throw him. Everyone want him to be what he wasn't. Can he fight against his mentor's alternate self, or will he find a way to end the War without bloodshed?
About the Arch: In canon, it's the doorway to the land of the dead. In here, it's a doorway to other realities and times. Its destination changes at random. Two people can walk side by side through the Arch and still arrive at different reality/time.
Slash and Gen. Tom/Harry or none. AU, CoS, magical bond.
Prompt: Harry was the one who received the diary; he bought some magical ink that was designed to bind the writings to their writer, so the contents he writes can be keep a secret. Somehow, when Harry using that ink that mixed with his blood to wrote in that diary, a bond formed between him and the piece of soul that 16-year-old Tom Riddle put inside that Horcrux. The bond makes it possible for Tom to forms a physical body without sucking all the life out of Harry. What will the young Heir of Slytherin do now he's free?
Slash. Severus/Harry. AU, HBP.
Prompt: What will happen if Harry had killed Draco Malfoy by using Sectumsempra? No one finds out Draco's death and Harry get away with it. What will happen if Harry becomes fascinated with the Dark Art? A true Slytherin is always attracts by power, and Harry is a Slytherin by heart. Only one person can stop Harry falling too deep. Will he try and can he succeed?
Slash. Severus/Harry or Draco/Harry or Firenze/Harry. AU.
Prompt: On the fateful night only Lily was kill. Afterward, James came up with a plan to place Harry not with wizard/witch/muggle but magical being, a Centaur. To farther secure Harry's safety, he turned Harry into a Centaur as well . Not even Dumbledore know about this (not even James' friends), so officially Harry and his mother was both killed by Voldemort that night. Few months after he hid Harry with the Centaur, James was killed (or tortured into insanity) by Death Eaters and the secret buried with him. Years later, the young pseudo-Centaur ventured into the world outside the Forbidden Forest. Will he regret his curiosity or will he learn to love the wizarding world? (Whether Harry find out about the truth or know from the beginning, is the writter's call.)
Slash or Gen. male/Harry or none. AU.
Prompt: What will happen if Harry is James' half-brother, and they were know as the Brothers-Who-Lived? Harry was several years younger (or elder) than his half-brother James. One of them was only 15-month-old when Voldemort attacked their family. Harry and James are the only survivors from that raid. At this period of time, Voldemort and his Death Eaters haven't been around long enough to terrify the Wizardry community thoroughly. So the name of the Boys-Who-Lived didn't carry as much weight, just enough to made James' head even bigger than anyone can endure. And what does it mean to having two Boys-Who-Lived, and outwardly, two Chosen Ones?
Gen or Slash. None or Sirius/Harry (pre or chan). AU, PoA.
Prompt: When the first time Harry Potter lay his eye on the bear-like black dog in the dark, he fainted on the street, before he even pull out his wand to curse that bloody giant dog or cast a Lumos. Yes, the Boy-Who-Lived has cynophobia, he was seriously and irrationally afraid of dogs. And while he's unconscious, he got kidnap by the wandering Grim. Would Harry ever overcome his fear and escape from the dog Animagus?
Slash or Gen. male/Harry or none. AU.
Prompt: Harry is a Noctus, a rare creature that feed on magic that have been darken by malice. No one see this coming, not even Dumbledore.
# It is not clean if Nocti should be classifying as a special breed of magical being or merely mutant of wizard kind. They are rare and look just like normal human being, but always with hair dark as night and eyes bright as star.
# Though Nocti feed on magic that was darkening by malice, they do not need it to survive. No Dark Art can ever work on a Noctus; their body devours the magical power behind a malicious spell, jinx, hex and curse, and in turn makes the imprecation become invalid.
# Noctus also can summon up Umbrae, a being that is make not of shadow as its name imply, but purely magic. It looks like a solid shadow with animal form. Every Umbrae has different form, and they take shape after the innate character of their owner. Umbrae function as Noctus' familiar, defend or guard against any physical harm towards its owner. Umbrae can only summon up by a Noctus, and a Noctus need to be 14 to gains this ability.
# Strangely enough, Nocti also have a strong tendency towards Healing Magic. They can heal people or themselves wand-less without much exertion.
# If assimilated too much malicious magic - likes a dozen of Unforgivable Curses - in a short period, Nocti become somewhat intoxicated by them. They lost control, seek out dark items or beings actively, devours every malicious magic they can find. It is likes a vicious circle, the more they feed, the more they are intoxicated by the dark magic, until they are too drunk to even move around.
Slash. Percy/Harry. AU, fairy tale.
Prompt: When Percy was still a little boy, he loves to read muggle fairy tales. The story of Snow White is his favorite. What if the Weasleys take 4-year-old Harry in after his abuse at the Dursleys was find out? Young little Percy mistook Harry for the Snow White from muggle fairy tales when they met the first time. He even wishes to marry Harry one day. However, his Snow White is a boy and when Harry grows up he might choose the Slytherin prince than a redheaded weasel. After all, Snow White never stays with the dwarf. Right?
About: One day it occurred to me, the Weasley sibling are quite similar to the seven dwarfs in Snow White. All seven of them and with their family taking Harry under their wings, the similarity is there and Harry also has black hair as Snow White. So this bunny about a fairy-tale style Harry Potter story pop in my head and wouldn't let go of brain. So here come another challenge.
Slash. Severus/Harry. 6th-year, memory charm, non-con, H/C.
Prompt: During his first month of being a 6th-year student at Hogwarts, Harry was rape and remembers having undergone the same horror when he was still 12-year-old. The first time around, it's Gilderoy Lockhart who put a spell/potion on Harry so he wouldn't be able to fight back and a Memory Charm always removed the chance that creep ever have to pay for his crimes. The second time (well, sort of), it's Severus Snape who was under the influence of his own newly design potion, behaved without inhibition and reason, also put a spell/potion on Harry before raped him, but this time it's Harry who used the Memory Charm to makes sure his rape remain a secret. However, when Snape seem to become more and more oblivious and cannot hold his focus (a side effect of the over-strong Obliviate) and Harry start falling apart inside, it's only a matter of time that truth came out.
Slash or Gen. Severus/Harry or none. AU, memory loss, wild child.
Prompt: 12-year-old Harry was dying in the forbidden forest because of those Acromantula, and a magical serpent (or other kind of beast) saved him and nursed him back to healthy. Harry has lost all his memory and living with that serpent ever since. What if Harry and that serpent start working together like a pair of bandits? Harry play the bait part and lure beasts and humans alike into their trap, rob everything they can if it's a human, feast on the victim if it's a beast (sometime, human too). So what if Snape finally came across the Boy-Who-Lived several years later and unknowingly become their next target?
Slash. Severus/Harry. Possible AU, HBP, love potion.
Prompt: Harry's magic overreacts to the excess love potion in his body. Snape is the only person who can get close to him and help. What will happen if Harry has eaten Romilda Vane's chocolates that dosed with love potion? Harry has a serious allergic reaction and nearly dies from it. What if it was because of Harry was already been feeding some potions (included love potion) by Ginny since the summer holidays? After used the antidote, Harry still did not recover his health completely, and he cannot be approach by anyone without his magic react and attack the person (or people). What will happen if Snape is the only exception to the overreaction of his magic?
Slash. Severus/Harry or Lucius/Harry or Voldemort/Harry. AU.
Prompt: What if when Harry was only 5, he got kidnapping by a rich squib/muggle? A man who has an unhealthy fascination for beautiful dolls, and dressed Harry up like a doll and hid him away from outside world for 10 years until someone finally find out. Being treated like an object, a favorite toy for years, Harry's self-image was twisted beyond recognizable. To make thing worse, Harry's magic is limitless and strong, but he's also unfamiliar with the concept of right and wrong. Is Harry ever going to become a real boy without losing his freedom again?
Slash. Voldemort(Tom)/Harry. Time travel.
Prompt: Lily is the daughter of Harry Potter and Tom Riddle. How is that possible? When Harry was 12, he was throwing back into the past. With (or without) his memory, Harry fell in love with Tom M. Riddle. Harry was engaged to Tom when he was 16 and his future husband 20. They finally produced a child after tried out countless potions and spells for years. When the Order raided their home, they lost their daughter in the mess. Tom believed it's the Order's doing. But somehow, a muggle couple adopted their baby girl and named her as Lily. What will happen when Voldemort and Harry find out the truth?
Slash. Voldemort/Harry or Lucius/Harry. Animagus, magical bond.
Prompt: Harry is a multiple Animagus; he can change into any kind of snake he wants, and switch shape while he was still a snake. Someone caught him when he is switching his snake form; they thought he is just a new kind of magical breed or something. Before Harry could escape, he was bought by Lucius Malfoy of all people, and Voldemort (or Lucius himself) has 'marked' him as his familiar, which meant he could not ever harm his master without share the pain through the bond, and vice versa. Voldemort didn't know he has his greatest enemy in his hand, literally.
Gen or Slash. None or Severus/Harry. Child abuse.
Prompt: Vernon confessed to his crime. Harry remember nothing. What if Vernon Dursley got drunk and told his most secrets to another person in a pub; things he did to his nephew? Now, an investigation on the Dursleys', especially Vernon's, abuses towards their nephew was start. Muggle authority subpoenaed Harry in the middle of the term. The problem is; Harry did not remember those things that his uncle claim had did to him. Is it because of those things never happen? If they did happened; did it meant Harry chose to forgot, or had someone erased his memory?
Slash or Gen. Severus/Harry or male/Harry or none. AU.
Prompt: Nagini thought baby Harry was Voldemort. Barty Crouch Jr. and the Lestranges thought Harry was the heir of Voldemort. Snape thought Harry was the son of Bellatrix and Rodolphus Lestrange. The Crouches thought Harry is their son's love child. Harry Crouch thought choose a side is way too much trouble.
Slash. Severus/Harry and James/Harry. AU, incest.
Prompt: No one know Severus is Harry's real father, Lily covered it up by a charm/potion and the marriage with James Potter. Harry was not supposed to be born at July 31st. Lily used a charm/potion to delay the maturing of the fetus and the delivery, so that no one would know that Harry was not sired by her husband. Fortunately, apart from the black hair Harry does not look too much like his real father, but more like his mother. Somehow James survived that fateful night along with Harry. What will happen if Harry's two fathers (the nominal one and real one) both fall for him? James was so overprotective and possessive about Harry that it starts to disturb his two best friends; he even go and asks for a job at Hogwarts when Harry received his letter.
Slash or Gen. Voldemort/Harry or none. Dark.
Prompt: What if one day, Harry waked up and found out he is the only one who can do magic in the world, and every memory he has about the magical world are nothing but dreams and illusions? In the real world Harry had been in a coma of some kind for years ever since he was 11. His parents are alive (and living with Harry's two young sister and brother happily), and do not want anything to do with him because of his freakish power. Harry was in despair; he involuntary used his magical power to made one (or several of) character take physical form in the real world. What if Harry magically makes Voldemort (and his Death Eaters) a reality? "There is no such thing as magic." Isn't it?
About: This plot is a mixture of canon world and non-magic AU. Let's presume all that happened in the books are only in Harry's head; the wizarding world never exists. However, Harry is also the only one carrying true magic and very powerful. So when he summoned Voldemort from the dream he created, it's kinda like Harry let loose the darkness that hidden within himself, the concretization of his dark side. The Voldemort/Harry pairing in here might seem a bit sexual narcissism, but I think that is what makes it more interesting.
Gen or Slash. None or Severus/Harry and Remus/Percy. AU, time travel.
Prompt: Severus wants to make it right, wants to prove himself. He traveling back into the past was never because of the Boy-Who-Dead. All he had in mind was to make sure someone in the past will be more aware of what was at risk. However something went wrong and Severus went back far than he want and merging his mind with his 28-year-old young self. Harry was only 8 and still thinks himself just Harry. Then it seems his meddling only makes thing worse. Harry became an orphan again. Wormtail escaped, Sirius got Kissed, and Percy got bit by Remus. Dumbledore lost his job as a headmaster. Harry was sorted into Slytherin. Hermione a Ravenclaw and never befriend anyone outside her House. Ron a Gryffindor and make himself the bane of the Boy-Who-Lived. Voldemort got his hand on the Stone.
Slash or Gen. Voldemort/Harry or none. AU, familiar, mentor.
Prompt: Lily and James' sacrifices that night protected Harry from Voldemort's Killing Curse and turn the Dark Lord into a serpent. As Voldemort cannot harm Harry physically or magically, he decided to stay with Harry and become his
familiar mentor, guiding the Boy-Who-Lived towards greatness while he search for a way to turning back into human again. Unknown to the Dark Lord, the only way to counteract this transfiguration is Harry’s selfless love without any holding back.
Slash. Voldemort/Harry. AU, serpent, wild child, animagus.
Prompt: What if Harry was abandoned by the Dursleys and was raised by a (or a group of) magical serpent? Hence, he only understands parseltongue and does not like humans very much in general. What if he learned to became a snake Animagus ever before his return to the human world; and somehow he end up as Voldemort's new familiar (or pet) and believes he shall be the consort of the fearful Dark Lord?
About: This challenge is the "Wild Child" challenge's derivative.
Slash. Salazar/Harry. Possible AU.
Prompt: Harry found an old painting in Number 12 Grimmauld Place, and something more. He set free Salazar Slytherin from his curse. The painting's subject matter is a coiling serpent with silver scales and green eyes, and it seems to be in an eternal dormancy. Then something happened, the serpent awoke and slid out the frame, and changed into a man. The man claims to be Salazar Slytherin. He was curse by someone and now liberated by Harry, and now that Harry must become his spouse.
Slash. Voldemort/Harry or Severus/Harry or Lucius/Harry or any dark-wizard/Harry. Possible AU.
Prompt: Lily's sacrifice not only protected Harry from Voldemort's Killing Curse but also works like a Dark-Wizard-and-Witch-Repelling Charm. Whenever a dark wizard or witch trying to approaches the general area of Harry, they lost their sense of direction and intention for a while. Whoever tries any means to overcome this specific charm will fell in love with Harry.
Slash or Gen. Tom/Harry or none. AU, CoS.
Prompt: What will happen if it was Harry who reopened the Chamber and without the help from the diary? What if Tom Riddle left some part of his soul inside of that basilisk, or that basilisk is Tom transformed into and Voldemort is actually an impostor? What if all parselmouth are immune from basilisk's deadly stare? What will happen if Harry befriends the basilisk?
Slash. Draco/Harry and Ron/Harry. AU, love triangle.
Prompt: What will happen if most people in the Wizarding World never know how Voldemort was defeated? Sirius did not lose his mind and go after Peter that night, so he never gets accuse for false murder of one wizard and twelve muggles. He became Harry's guardian, and Remus Harry's second Godfather. Somehow, Harry and Sirius were not as close as he and Remus. Draco makes friend with Harry at his father's order without knowing the real reason. Ron thinks Harry needs someone to look out for him. Harry himself just wants a peaceful life and two best friends that will not try to bit off each other's head every time. Thing get difficult not when Harry's name flew out of the Goblet of Fire, but when his two best friends both want to be his lover. Who will Harry going to chose?
Slash. Voldemort(Tom)/Harry. Twincest.
Prompt: What if Harry was Tom Marvolo Riddle's twin brother? What if their deranged mother bound their souls together on the day of their birth, cursed them with the fact they cannot ever love anyone else but their twin and cannot survive without each other. Some dreadful thing happened when Harry Riddle was still young and he was kept in a dormancy for decades, while his twin brother seeking for revenge on the world for his loss and became the next Dark Lord. After learned of this peculiar bond between Voldemort and his twin brother, Dumbledore managed pulled the younger twin out from his dormancy, erased his memory, rejuvenated his body, fabricated the prophecy and placed him with the Potters. On that fateful night, to Dumbledore's surprise, Lily's sacrifice kept Voldemort's Killing Curse from killing the two twin brothers with one curse. What will happen when Voldemort finally find out whom Dumbledore had made his twin brother became?
About: This twisted little thing pop up around the same time as "Morbid Love" and "Failed Oblivion". The first of the all little twisted plot bunnies.
Slash. Fenrir/Remus. AU, werewolf.
Prompt: Harry lives an unusual life. His adoptive parents are both male, both werewolf and both having the Aurors after their heads. Remus Lupin has taken the 3 years old Boy-Who-Lived away from his muggle relatives without the approval of the Ministry. As Remus dodging Aurors’ pursuit, he runs into Fenrir Greyback of all people, whom has lost contact with his pack. The most unlikely family was form, two werewolf and one little boy. (Harry was not and will never be a werewolf.)
