MCU AU Fest

Dear creator,

I'm sure I'll love whatever you create.  Don't worry too much about any specific prompts; as long as you avoid my DNWs, it'll be fine.  :)

You'll find me on AO3 as saiditallbefore.

Normally, I would put some specific likes here, such as tropes I like, but I'm not sure they're particularly relevant in this fest.  If you want more inspiration, feel free to poke around this journal; it's mainly exchange letters.

Edit 5/11/2016: I have seen Captain America: Civil War and loved it, so feel free to include spoilers, if you want.  Or disregard the movie completely, if it doesn't jive with your ideas. :)

DNWs:

  • PWPs, though porn with plot is usually okay

  • non-con

  • extreme violence (canon levels of violence are OK)

  • character death

  • unprompted crossovers

  • brainwashing/mental horror


Jessica Jones/Patricia Walker

AU - Auto Racing

Jessica and Trish on a racing team!  Maybe Trish is the owner and Jessica is the crew chief?  Maybe one of them is the driver?  I don't have any strong preferences about who does what.  I am going to note that I am fairly familiar with NASCAR Sprint Cup rules, so if you're going to handwave details, please don't say they're specifically racing NASCAR; just say they're racing stock cars and I'll be happy.  (Or make it Formula 1, or any other kind of racing.  That works, too.)

AU - Sentinels & Guides

I know this is 100% fanon, and I don't care.  Give me all of the tropes!  My first inclination is for Jessica to be the Sentinel and Trish to be the Guide, but I can see it working the other way, too.  I don't particularly want a retelling of canon, but something pre- or post- canon (or set in a sideways universe where everything happened differently) would be great.

AU - Star Wars

I don't really want something that retells any of the Star Wars movies (or books, or video games, or...) exactly.  What I would like is Jessica and Trish in the Star Wars universe.  Is Jessica a Jedi-turned-bounty hunter?  Or a dissolute smugger?  Is Trish a former Senator, or some sort of Galactic celebrity?  I'm here for the space adventuring and lightsabers, so go wild!

AU - Supernatural Creatures & Hunters

I'd really love Jessica and Trish to be hunters of some kind.  Maybe something Supernatural-esque?  Or even Buffy-esque.  (I'm not actually a fan of either show, though I am familiar with them.)  But I'm also cool with you sticking with the NYC setting.  I'd just really like something with the two women fighting and hunting down demons or vampires or ghosts or whatever.  If you want to keep superpowered people in the mix (or just Jessica's superpowers), I'd be cool with that, too.

Canon AU - Unpowered Character Has Powers

Something where Trish has powers!  Preferably not a straight retelling of canon; I'd rather have an adventure that happens post-canon or pre-canon (or set where canon didn't happen the same way).  Any powers except psychic powers are good.

Wanda Maximoff/Steve Rogers

AU - Circus

Wanda as an acrobat and Steve as the strongman?  Is this a modern day circus, or an old-timey one?  Or is it a Victorian Steampunk circus?  I don't even know.  Consider this license to write crack.  Or ridiculous shipfic.  Or whatever else you want.

AU - Olympics

Are they on different countries' teams and having a ~forbidden romance~?  Do their trainers disapprove because they need to be training?  Do they do the same sport and help each other train?  I kind of picture Wanda as a gymnast, but I have a hard time picturing Steve doing gynmastics.  Then again, he probably could if he put his mind to it.  I don't know that much about the Olympics, so take as much artistic license as you want.

AU - Pushing Daisies Fusion

Wanda with powers to bring back the dead, please!  Is this a result of the experiments done on her (rather than her canon powers)?  Does she use these to bring back Pietro, damn the consequences?  Or maybe this is taking place in the Pushing Daisies universe, and Wanda is a quirky piemaker- how does that play out?  Are there still superheroes?  Who is Steve in this world?  How does a romance play out when the two parties can't touch each other?

AU - Sentinels & Guides

I know this is 100% fanon, and I don't care.  Give me all of the tropes!  I would love for Wanda to be the Sentinel and Steve to be the Guide.  Maybe this is a result of the experiments done on her (rather than her canon powers)?  Maybe this is just the way she is naturally?

AU - Superhero High School

What do students learn in a superhero high school?  How does this affect their backstories?  I'm thinking something like Sky High or Marvel's Avengers Academy, but you can go wild.  Be as cracky as you want.

Peggy Carter/Daniel Sousa/Jack Thompson

AU - Leverage Fusion

Sometimes, bad guys make the best good guys.  So, what if Peggy, Sousa, and Thompson were bad (or morally gray), rather than the good guys?  Maybe they take a different path after the war, or after Season 1 or 2 of Agent Carter.  Don't feel like they have to 1:1 correlate with the characters on Leverage (although Peggy would totally be the mastermind of the group).  I just want to see them use questionable methods to make the bad guys pay.  As you may have guessed, I would really love if this were set in the '40s, like canon.

AU - LOST Fusion

Stranded on an island?  Wild animals that really shouldn't be there?  Mysterious Others?  Black smoke monster?  The Hatch (that may or may not kill them all)?  Time travel?  I am 100% open to all of this and whatever else you want to cherry-pick from LOST.  Don't feel like you have to retell any of the plots exactly or that Peggy, Sousa, or Thompson have to correlate 1:1 with any of the LOST characters.  If you want to set it in the '40s, I will love you forever.

AU - Regency

I would love love love to see Peggy navigating Regency social circles.  While maybe also being a spy?  I read too many romance novels (favorites include Georgette Heyer, Rose Lerner, and Maya Rodale, if that gives you any ideas), so I'd really like something that's basically a Regency romance novel that ends in a threesome.  Shenanigans welcome.

AU - Soulmate-Identifying Marks

I love any and all iterations of this trope, from matching shapes to TiMER-like countdowns to first words on your body.  Pick whichever you like best.  How do they feel about being soulmates?  Is there stigma against having more than one soulmate?  Is there stigma against having soulmates at all?  Is there stigma against Sousa/Thompson's leg of the relationship?  (Feel free not to write this or not to dwell on it.)  I'd love for this to be set in the '40s, like canon.

AU - Star Wars

I don't really want something that retells any of the Star Wars movies (or books, or video games, or...) exactly.  What I would like is Peggy/Daniel/Jack in the Star Wars universe.  Are they Jedi?  Or senators?  Or maybe they're something else altogether- I'd love to see them take on Star Wars criminals, like the Hutts.  I'm here for the space adventuring and lightsabers, so go wild!

AU - Thieves

Basically, a Leverage AU without the morality- or at least, without the same kind of morality.  What if they weren't the good guys, and what if they took for themselves instead of for others?  I'd love if this was still set in the '40s.

Peggy Carter/Dottie Underwood

AU - Auto Racing

Maybe they're rival drivers; maybe they own rival teams- I feel like as long as they're rivals, I don't have any strong preferences about who does what.  I am going to note that I am fairly familiar with NASCAR Sprint Cup rules, so if you're going to handwave details, please don't say they're specifically racing NASCAR; just say they're racing stock cars and I'll be happy.  (Or make it Formula 1, or any other kind of racing.  That works, too.)

AU - Reality Show

Some sort of terrible cross between Big Brother and Survivor?  Are they infilitrating it undercover, and working at cross-purposes, or are they actual contestants?  The weirder the reality show is, the better!  I would love some cracky shenanigans.

AU - Soulmate-Identifying Marks

I love any and all iterations of this trope, from matching shapes to TiMER-like countdowns to first words on your body.  Pick whichever you like best.  How do they react to being soulmates?  Is there stigma against same-sex soulmate couples?  (Feel free not to write this or not to dwell on it.)  I'd love for this to be set in the '40s, like canon.

AU - Star Wars

I don't really want something that retells any of the Star Wars movies (or books, or video games, or...) exactly.  What I would like is Peggy and Dottie in the Star Wars universe.  Is Dottie a bounty hunter?  Is Peggy a Jedi, or a Senator?  I'm here for the space adventuring and lightsabers, so go wild!

Canon AU - Unpowered Character Has Powers

Something where Dottie or Peggy or both has powers!  How do they use them?  Preferably not a straight retelling of canon; I'd rather have an adventure that happens post-canon or pre-canon (or set where canon didn't happen the same way).  Any powers except psychic powers are good.

Dottie Underwood & James "Bucky" Barnes

Canon AU - Bucky Rescued/Escaped Differently

What I'd really love for this is something where Dottie & Bucky are forced to work together.  Does he escape on her own, and she helps him for her own purposes?  Does she rescue him for ~reasons?  Does she tell Peggy about him as a bartering chip?

AU - Circus

I don't know what they would be doing, but Dottie would probably have knives.  Is this a modern day circus, or an old-timey one?  Or is it a Victorian Steampunk circus?  I don't even know.  Consider this license to write crack.  Or whatever else you want.

AU - Reality Show

Some sort of terrible cross between Big Brother and Survivor?  Why are they there?  I'd love something where they grudgingly work together.  The weirder the reality show is, the better!  I would love some cracky shenanigans.

AU - Sentinels & Guides

I know this is 100% fanon, and I don't care.  Give me all of the tropes!  I would love for Bucky to be the Sentinel and Dottie to be the Guide.  How terribly does this go?  Does Dottie just manipulate him, or do they actually have some kind of bond?

Canon AU - Unpowered Character Has Powers

Something where Dottie has powers!  How does she use them?  Does this crossover with Bucky Rescued/Escaped Differently?  Any powers except psychic powers are good.
