Hi! I'm Rosencrantz on AO3 and I'm pleased that you're going to be writing for me! Thank you! Pleasure to meet you!

Likes: Adventure, mystery, family, humour.
Dislikes: Rape, incest, gore, underage, Sue Dibny being dead.

Let's get this party rolling.

FANDOM: X-Men: The Animated Series.
AUs:

  • AU: Nightcrawler Joins The X-Men In His Intro Episode (X-Men: TAS)

  • AU: Mystique Raises Nightcrawler (X-Men: TAS)

  • AU: Wolverine Joins Starfleet (X-Men: TAS)

  • AU: Genderswap (X-Men: TAS)


Characters/Relationships:

  • Relationship: Wolverine/Nightcrawler (X-Men: TAS)

  • Nightcrawler (X-Men: TAS)

  • Wolverine (X-Men: TAS)





Prompts:

AU: Nightcrawler Joins The X-Men In His Intro Episode (X-Men: TAS)

How would things have gone if instead of exiting stage right, Nightcrawler had gone home with the X-Men (and the increasingly concussed Gambit. That's just a joke. I know he's not tagged) and became one of them? What adventures would be different? How would he change the dynamic? What sort of different things would happen? There's no Kitty for him to bounce off of in the Animated Series, would he bond with Jubilee in the same way? No Colossus or Banshee, instead it's Gambit, Jean, Rogue, Wolverine, and Scott. Storm's still consistent though.

I'm happy for adventure, day in the life, something sweet, or something funny. I don't want an AU where him joining means someone dies.

You may have matched on this one with the Wolverine/Nightcrawler tag! I'm happy with g-rated to explicit romance! So have at it.


AU: Mystique Raises Nightcrawler (X-Men: TAS)

Would Nightcrawler have been like a brother to Rogue? Would he have become a villain? Would he still have become a Catholic? What about Destiny? Would he have convinced his mother (possibly Mothers with the aforementioned Destiny) to become at least an anti-hero? Would he have found his own path to heroism?

Again, I don't want a 'this means someone dies' AU! If you're wondering why I'm so paranoid about that, I'm traumatized from the Marvel What Ifs where it's like 'Magneto's daughter doesn't die! So everyone else does'

You may have matched on this one with the Wolverine/Nightcrawler tag! I'm happy with g-rated to explicit romance! I would ESPECIALLY love if you were doing them for Wolverine to seduce Nightcrawler to the light side if he's become a villain with his mother.


AU: Wolverine Joins Starfleet (X-Men: TAS)

This one's kind of cracky but is actually supported by crossovers in Marvel canon in the books and comics, so you know, might as well ask for it in animated.

Wolverine will live a long time. Probably long enough that he'll still be around if Starfleet happens in his timeline. Would it be the Starfleet from the trek we know? A marvel specific version? What sort of role would Wolverine in SPAAAAACE have?


AU: Genderswap (X-Men: TAS)

Lady!Wolverine is my jam. However, I'm up for any other X-Man being genderswapped as long as the story involves Wolverine in some way. How would it change the team? How would it change how things went with Wolverine? If it's Scott, I'd like to hope Wolverine would punch Cyclops in the stomach less.




Fandom: DC Comics
AUs:

  • AU: Sue and Ralph Dibny Run A Detective Agency Instead Of Being Heroes (DC Comics)

  • AU: Identity Crisis never happens (DC Comics)

  • AU: Soulmate AU (DC Comics)

  • AU: Wonder Woman Protects Gotham Before Batman Becomes Batman (DC Comics)



Characters:

  • Sue Dibny (DC Comics)

  • Relationship: Batman/Wonder Woman (DC Comics)





Prompts:

AU: Sue and Ralph Dibny Run A Detective Agency Instead Of Being Heroes (DC Comics)

This is sort of already canon! They were detective heroes! Ralph's twitching nose, etc! But what if they'd never gotten involved with the Justice League or any of that? What if they'd stuck with strictly street level work? Or other capers? I'd like to see that. Especially if Sue gets to do a lot of the legwork.

Most of all I want Sue safe and happy, no matter how you go about this.

AU: Identity Crisis never happens (DC Comics)

Lots of ways this could happen - never found out, they were never doing it in the first place, that horrible thing that happened to Sue never happened, Batman marries Zatanna and somehow during the honeymoon they decide not to do it (this is an unnominated joke, don't worry about it unless you like it), they all go public, anything that involves this event not occurring.

Most of all I want Sue safe and happy, no matter how you go about this.

AU: Soulmate AU (DC Comics)

Diana grew up on a small island where she knew EVERYONE. So what does she do when her soulmate is not on the island? How does Batman deal with being Batman and having a soulmate? Feel free to combine this with other tags.


AU: Wonder Woman Protects Gotham Before Batman Becomes Batman (DC Comics)

What if, when Wonder Woman came to the world of men, Gotham was where she set up shop? How does Batman do his job when there's another hero already in the territory - and better established than him? What if they're in love?




Fandom: MCU and TV
AUs:

  • AU: Tony Was Kidnapped By Ultron At The Start Of The Movie (MCU and TV)

  • AU: Tony Stark Talks Ultron Out Of Going Nuts (MCU and TV)

  • AU: Sam and Steve With Eachother's Abilities (MCU and TV)

  • AU: Sam and Steve Are Retired (MCU and TV)

  • AU: Steve and Natasha Are Private Detectives (MCU and TV)

  • AU: Steve Is Put In Charge Of Recruiting Natasha To The Avengers (MCU and TV)



Characters:

  • Relationship: Tony Stark & Ultron

  • Relationship: Steve Rogers & Natasha Romanov (MCU and TV)

  • Relationship: Sam Wilson/Steve Rogers (MCU and TV)





Prompts:

AU: Tony Was Kidnapped By Ultron At The Start Of The Movie (MCU and TV)

Story changes a lot with Tony as a hostage. Or maybe not a hostage, maybe Ultron has another reason he'd kidnap Tony. I didn't make this a / request but feel free to interpret it that way if you want. What does Tony do while he's kidnapped? Can he stop Ultron without it being a big blast fight? Can he talk sense into him? Does this somehow save Pietro? Does it save the country from being picked up and exploded? I ask you this. I also enjoy it when Tony does the whole 'builds it out of spare parts in a hole' trick that he did in two of his movies.


AU: Tony Stark Talks Ultron Out Of Going Nuts (MCU and TV)

What if Ultron hadn't Seen Too Much and snapped? What if he saw another solution? What if he worked as intended? What if he ended up as an Avenger? What if Tony managed to find some way to calm him down/downgrade him? How would things have gone?

AU: Sam and Steve With Eachother's Abilities (MCU and TV)

My main thought of this, of course, was Steve as a fragile but agile flyer in WW2, and Sam years later as a super soldier. Or reversing them in time. Or putting them in the same time. Anyway, I'm up for it as long as the wings and the strength are in different arms. And then they kiss.


AU: Sam and Steve Are Retired (MCU and TV)

Old snarky soldier men together. Do they still do low level crime fighting even though they're supposed to be resting? What adventures do they still get up to? Do they complain about youth heroes these days? Do they kiss. Obviously they kiss, I asked for Sam/Steve :D

AU: Steve and Natasha Are Private Detectives (MCU and TV)

For this what if Steve is still a fragile unserumed? Or if he does have the serum, what if it's part of a dark secret that he's trying to keep low while he solves crimes? And Nat! She's her own 'of all the dames to walk into my door' all on her own every day to herself. How much do they sass eachother on cases? I hope a lot. Any time period is fine.


AU: Steve Is Put In Charge Of Recruiting Natasha To The Avengers (MCU and TV)

What if Nat wasn't there all along and Cap was chosen as the one to go after her and bring her into the fold? What if their friendship blossomed out of this? What if Nat had serum in her herself? What if Steve got to play the ingenue for people instead of Nat. Anyway, there's an idea there.





Fandom: Marvel Comics
AUs:

  • AU: The Gambit Is Cyclops and Sinister's Clone From The End Miniseries In Main Canon (Marvel Comics)

  • AU: Mr. Sinister Goes Good And Becomes An X-Man (Marvel Comics)

  • AU: Matt and Jennifer Are Normal Lawyers Who Suddenly Get Superpowers (Marvel Comics)

  • AU: Patsy Walker Does Not Get Fired By She-Hulk (Marvel Comics)




Characters:

  • Nathaniel Essex | Mr. Sinister (Marvel Comics)

  • Remy LeBeau | Gambit (Marvel Comics)

  • Scott Summers | Cyclops (Marvel Comics)

  • Matt Murdock | Daredevil (Marvel Comics)

  • Jennifer Walters | She-Hulk (Marvel Comics)

  • Patsy Walker | Hellcat (Marvel Comics)






Prompts:

AU: The Gambit Is Cyclops and Sinister's Clone From The End Miniseries In Main Canon (Marvel Comics)

I'm going to square with you - it's the concept I love for the 'Gambit is Sinister and Cyclops' clone' than anything else. But I included the origin because I ALSO like Apocalypse fucking around with Sinister. But feel free to just stick with the clone thing - or merge canon as much as you want!

So what happens when this is discovered in the normal timeline? Or early on? How would it be discovered? What would Scott do? What if, instead of Gambit ending up with the thieves guild, he ends up being raised by Sinister who punks out on using him as a spare body? Again, how does Cyclops feel?

(Sinister/Gambit falls under the no incest DNW)


AU: Mr. Sinister Goes Good And Becomes An X-Man (Marvel Comics)

This is a bit cracky. What would the most glamgoth villain be like if he gave it all up to become a hero? They've accepted Magneto multiple times, after all. How could Sinister convince them? How would it go? (What if it involved the earlier prompt?) How would Cyclops feel about his stalker running around in blue and yellow tights (and I assume thigh highs same as always)?

If you can somehow involve him convincing them with a powerpoint, I'd love you forever.


AU: Matt and Jennifer Are Normal Lawyers Who Suddenly Get Superpowers (Marvel Comics)

Matt and Jennifer - same law firm? Opposing ends of the court? What sort of powers do they get? How does this impact their lawyering? Are they in the marvel universe when it happens? Are they in another superhero universe? Or in a normal one? Does it tie into a case they're working on? Do they manage to avoid the lure of tights?


AU: Patsy Walker Does Not Get Fired By She-Hulk (Marvel Comics)

So! The start of Patsy Walker aka Hellcat is Patsy being let go by She-Hulk due to funds. But I want to actually see Patsy's work as She-Hulk's investigator. I wanna see Patsy investigating the HECK out of things. I want to see her boundless energy and Shulkie's joie de vivre.

If you want to combine it with the other prompt, what if Patsy has to deal with being the investigator for a suddenly superpowered lawyer? Shenanigans?




Fandom: Beauty and the Beast (1991)
AUs:

  • AU: Shrek It Beauty Becomes A Beast (Beauty and the Beast)

  • AU: Girl Beast Girl Belle (Beauty and the Beast)

  • AU: Belle Is The Beast (Beauty and the Beast)

  • AU: Beast Never Changes Back (Beauty and the Beast)




Characters:

  • Beast (Disney)

  • Belle (Disney)






Prompts:


AU: Shrek It Beauty Becomes A Beast (Beauty and the Beast)
AU: Girl Beast Girl Belle (Beauty and the Beast)
AU: Belle Is The Beast (Beauty and the Beast)
AU: Beast Never Changes Back (Beauty and the Beast)

Now, you may notice these are all kind of a variation on a theme. I confess I didn't realize this when I was setting them up. The differences all lie in the execution.

So! Uncouth lady Beast! Belle being transformed into a beast! Beast stays a beast! How do these all change or re-enforce the story? What does this do with Belle's father? The subplot with Gaston? The fairy's goals? This one is so well explained by the AU names I don't really have much beyond this.

(With Belle as the Beast, how would she meet the prince? Where would she be? Would she still be singing mean songs about the villagers? I hope so)
