Dear “Tag Your It” Author,

Let me begin by thanking you for offering one of my fandoms. I'm sure I'm going to love whatever you write, but since you're probably looking for some ideas and guidance, I'll try to provide you with some suggestions. Note that I've requested many of these things before, and have received some great stories, but I'm of the opinion there can always be more. I love seeing alternate takes on the same basic idea.

First, some general wants/do not wants.

Wants: (Things I especially like, if they happen to fit in with the story you want to tell.)

Snarky characters, physical or mental h/c, humor, PWP, gen, character studies, adventure, women or other characters who are usually in need of rescue turning the tables and being the hero, fix-it fic, A/Us in which events transpired in slightly different fashion. Note that I'm fine with drunken dub-con/aliens made them do it/sex pollen/the like.

Do not wants: (Things that I'm either not interested in for this exchange or that simply don't work for me with the fandoms and characters I've requested. Do note that there are fandom specific exceptions that will be listed under those fandoms.) Character death, non-con, a/b/o, genderswap, male or female pregnancy, kid fic, curtain fic, coffee shop/band/etc type A/Us, most kinks other than some mild bondage.

Now, on to the specific fandoms:

NASCAR RPF

Group: Danica Patrick & Tony Stewart & Kurt Busch & Kevin Harvick

This was the team that most fans (myself included) expected to see implode in short order. Oddly, they've gelled well together, but one does wonder what sort of craziness goes on behind closed doors. Please, avoid any serious racing accidents, although fist fights are more than welcome. Feel free to add any other drivers you'd like.

Tags:

Magical pants (British pants preferred) – When I saw the tag, my first thought was a lucky set of underwear that's being shared (perhaps not willingly) among the team. Of course, they're a bit big on Danica, and a little small for Tony...

Alien invasion or Zombie apocalypse – Team Stewart tasked with saving the world? Or at least Daytona?

Bar Room Brawl – Don't tell me that you can't picture this...

Road trips or Vacations Gone Awry – Do you remember the series of Coke racing family road trip ads? Send the team on a trip together.

IN SPACE – I'm mot usually big on A/Us, but Team Stewart crewing a starship? Yeah!

Crack fic, Humor, Comedy, Team Dynamics – mix with any of the above, or if you have an idea of your own.

Big Bang Theory

In this fandom, I have differing tags depending on which characters you select. My favorite character is Sheldon, who I ship with either Penny or Amy, if you want to go that route. But, that said, I'd love to see something focusing on the group as a whole, too.

Group: Sheldon Cooper & Leonard Hofstader & Howard Wolowitz & Rajesh Koothrappali & Penny

Tags:

Time travel – The boys invent a time machine. Things go very wrong.

Character turned into Cyborg or Android – Sheldon would be the first to volunteer, wouldn't he?

IN SPACE – The group as crew of a spaceship, boldly going... well, knowing this group, going around in circles?

Crossover w/Stargate Atlantis – Perhaps Penny has the ancient gene so she gets to go, too? The five would make an interesting (and terrified) gate team. And Sheldon vs. McKay?

Secretly an alien – One would expect it to be Sheldon, but maybe it isn't?

Power outage – Sheldon's emergency drills come in handy.

Or:

Group: Sheldon Cooper/Amy Farrah Fowler

Tags:

Impact play, Breathplay, Sex toys under clothing – Remember the episode where Sheldon spanked Amy and she enjoyed it? I could picture Sheldon experimenting and lecturing Amy on just why her body responds that way.

Airwolf

Group: Michael Coldsmith Briggs III & Caitlin O'Shannessy
Group: Michael Coldsmith Briggs III/Caitlin O'Shannessy

Personally, I ship Michael and Caitlin, but I know that's a rare ship, and I'm perfectly happy to see the two together in a platonic relationship. Michael is my favorite character, so you really can't go wrong with anything focused on him. However, I do request that if you go the platonic route, that you don't ship Hawke and Caitlin together.

Tags:

Post-canon or A/U Canon divergence – If you can find a way to explain why Michael and Caitlin were both missing from the fourth season, or if you want to ignore the fourth season entirely, go for it.

Rescue Missions – for once, it's Michael and Caitlin saving Hawke and Santini?

Undercover as a couple, Undercover Missions or Spies & Secret Agents – Caitlin gets roped into going on a mission with Michael?

Scars, PTSD, hurt/comfort, emotional hurt/comfort or dreams and nightmares – Michael has been tortured, drugged and blown up, surely he has some baggage from it all? Maybe Caitlin is smart enough to see it?

Snowed in, Sharing a bed, Huddling for Warmth, Secret relationship, Handcuffed together, Porn what plot or Porn with Plot – Throw them in bed together, I don't care how. :)

Stargate Atlantis

I love the snark, and the relationships between the characters. I'm flexible regarding John and Rodney, either ship or bromance is fine. That said, I also love Todd, the honorable enemy.

Group: John Sheppard & Rodney McKay & Todd
Group: John Sheppard & Todd

Tags:

Friendship, Frenemies, comrades in arms, loyalty – Anything exploring the complicated relationship between Todd and Atlantis.

Transformations, Villains to heroes, post-canon, team dynamics – What if Keller and/or Beckett find an answer to the Wraith's need to drain humans of life force, and Todd becomes a part of the team?

Castle

Love this show. Another case of different tags for different characters.

Group: Richard Castle & Victoria Gates

Tags:

Frenemies – She likes him a lot better than she ever lets on.

Or

Group: Richard Castle & Kate Beckett & Javier Esposito & Kevin Ryan
Group: Richard Castle/Kate Beckett
Group: Richard Castle & Kate Beckett

Tags:

IN SPACE – Star ship captain Castle?

Crossover w/Stargate Atlantis – Castle with the gene? A Wraith loose in NY murdering people? Castle and friends enlisted as a gate team?

Alien invasion, Vampires, Monsters – real ones this time.

Character turned into a Vampire – What if Castle got bit? Immortality cool. Blood drinking and sunlight allergy not so cool?

Hopefully, dear writer, you've found something that interests you. Just have fun writing and don't stress, I'm sure that whatever you come up with will be great!

Dear Rare Pairs Author,

Let me begin by thanking you for offering one of my fandoms. I'm sure I'm going to love whatever you write, but since you're probably looking for some ideas and guidance, I'll try to provide you with some suggestions.

First, some general wants/do not wants.

Wants: (Things I especially like, if they happen to fit in with the story you want to tell.)

Snarky characters, physical or mental h/c, humor, PWP, gen, character studies, adventure, women or other characters who are usually in need of rescue turning the tables and being the hero, fix-it fic, A/Us in which events transpired in slightly different fashion. Note that I'm fine with drunken dub-con/aliens made them do it/sex pollen/the like.

Do not wants: (Things that I'm either not interested in for this exchange or that simply don't fit with the fandoms and characters I've requested. Do note that there are fandom specific exceptions.)

Character death, non-con, a/b/o, genderswap, male or female pregnancy, kid fic, curtain fic, coffee shop/band/etc type A/Us, most kinks other than some mild bondage.

On to specific fandoms/pairings:

Airwolf – Michael/Caitlin

Yes, I've asked for this before, and I've received some lovely stories, but there can never be enough Michael/Caitlin fic. I'm good with anything you'd like to do with these two, but if you're looking for a specific idea, how about a “one blanket” type scenario? Perhaps Cait is flying Michael somewhere and they are forced/shot down and end up in the mountains in the snow – breaking into a trapper's cabin?

Big Bang Theory – Amy/Penny

I read Amy as probably at least a little bit Bi, with something of a crush on Penny – and Penny's inhibitions go away when she drinks.

Sheldon/Amy/Penny

When (and if?) there's a “first time” between Sheldon and Amy, there's likely to be a lot of inexperienced fumbling. I could see either of them calling in an “expert” to help.

Beverly/Sheldon

Likely another case of too much to drink – or someone doing research for a scientific paper. I picture the most clinical sex act ever.

Stargate Atlantis – John/Atlantis

John sometimes seems to have an almost physic connection to the city. Does it sense his needs? What does that connection really feel like?

John/Todd,Rodney/Todd,John/Rodney/Todd

Grouping these because the requests are similar. Perhaps John (or Rodney) is pretending to be Todd's worshiper because otherwise the other Wraith will kill him? Or the exchange of life force has other ramifications? The only thing I ask is that you don't portray Todd as totally evil.

To conclude, I hope you found something here that's of some help to you. I'm eagerly awaiting whatever you come up with and I'm sure I'll enjoy it. Thanks again for writing!!!

Dear Crossovering writer,

First, let me thank you for writing for me. I want you to have fun and not stress – I'm sure that I'll love whatever you come up with. That said, you're probably looking for some guidance. I'll try not to be too restrictive.

First, I'll get the do-not-wants out of the way. For this exchange: Character death, non-con, a/b/o, genderswap, male or female pregnancy, kid fic, curtain fic, coffee shop/band/etc type A/Us, most kinks other than some mild bondage.

And some random things I like: Snarky characters, physical or mental h/c, humor (most of my requests for this are at least a little cracky). I prefer crossovers to fusions. For this exchange, I'm more interested in gen than in shipping, although I'm fine with canon background pairings.

On to the specifics!

Request #1: Castle/Stargate Atlantis/Big Bang Theory

I've always wanted to see Castle crossed with SGA. The idea of Castle with the ATA gene running around touching things and getting into trouble (with McKay having a screaming fit?) sounds like so much fun. So many ideas here – a wraith loose in NYC, Beckett being related to Dr. Beckett? Most interested in Castle and Kate, but if you want to make up a gate team feel free to drag Espo and Kevin (or Laine) along for the ride.

Would also love to see TBBT crossed with SGA. It should be relatively easy to get scientists enlisted to the gate program, but it's liable to be a disaster once they're there. My favorite is Sheldon (again, the reaction from McKay!) but feel free to use any/all of the gang.

As to crossing Castle with TBBT – perhaps one of the guys witnesses a murder? Or is accused of a murder? Or the latest murder has a scientific twist and they need to consult?

Request #2: Boston Legal/Star Trek/Castle

I love the idea of a transporter malfunction/space warp/whatever swapping Denny Crane and Kirk. Even better if Denny has to pretend to be Kirk in front of the Klingons. If you want to address Kirk being stuck in Boston and Alan thinking “Denny” has gone totally off the rails, too, feel free to go for it. Note that I'm equally okay with Denny and Alan as bromance or slash.

Despite what canon has come up with regarding Castle's father, since the first season my personal “fanon” has been that Denny Crane is actually his dad. If you want to ignore canon or write a fix-it, that's fine – or if you're not interested in that, Denny and Alan could be defending one of Castle's perps.

As to Castle and Star Trek – I'm fine with anything that brings aliens (Vulcans? Ferengi?) to Earth, and Castle discovering that they're real. I'm familiar with TOS, Next Gen, DS9 and Voyager.

Request #3: Mayhem/Battle Creek/Flo

Mayhem and Russ, identical twins. Separated at birth or grew up together, your choice. Maybe Milt running into Mayhem? BTW, I personally don't slash Russ and Milt.

Flo could also mistake Russ for Mayhem – or maybe she arrives to insure that s###box of a car he drives.

And there's no end to the adventures Flo and Mayhem could get into together. Zombie apocalypse? Or maybe it wasn't an apocalypse until THEY got there. :)

I hope I've given you some ideas, but if your muse goes in a different direction, follow it and see where it leads! Mostly, just have fun, and thank you again!

Dear Yuletide Author,

Let me begin by thanking you for offering one of my fandoms. I'm sure I'm going to love whatever you write, but since you're probably looking for some ideas and guidance, I'll try to provide you with some suggestions.

First, some general wants/do not wants.

Wants: (Things I especially like, if they happen to fit in with the story you want to tell.)

Snarky characters, physical or mental h/c, humor, PWP, gen, character studies, adventure, women or other characters who are usually in need of rescue turning the tables and being the hero, fix-it fic, A/Us in which events transpired in slightly different fashion.

Do not wants: (Things that I'm either not interested in for this exchange or that simply don't fit with the fandoms and characters I've requested. Do note that there are fandom specific exceptions.)

Character death, non-con, a/b/o, genderswap, male or female pregnancy, kid fic, curtain fic, coffee shop/band/etc type A/Us, most kinks other than some mild bondage.

Now, as to fandom specifics.

-Airwolf-

I requested Michael and Caitlin, but please don't stop reading quite yet if you're not particularly interested in them (more on that in a minute.)

I've requested Airwolf (again!) because despite having received a couple of stories in the past, there will never be enough Airwolf fic, and there will -definitely- never be enough focusing on Michael and Caitlin. I do ship the two of them together, and if you'd like to write me Michael/Caitlin porn, that would be fantastic. That said, I know that most of the fandom can't see those two together, so if you can't, I want to assure you that I'm perfectly fine with gen. (Please, no Hawke/Caitlin, though.)

If you'd like some more specific ideas, perhaps Hawke and Dom are out of town and Michael asks Caitlin to fly him somewhere, helicopter is forced down and they end up stuck in the middle of nowhere in a cabin in the snow with the proverbial one blanket? Or if you'd like to riff off an episode, maybe at the end of “Fallen Angel” Hawke and Dom go back to the hospital and Caitlin comforts the still upset Michael? There's also the “Kingdom Come” episode where Michael comes to her rescue after the villain straps a bomb to her.

If you'd rather go the gen route, how about if Hawke and/or Dom got into trouble and for once it was Caitlin and Michael who had to save them, rather than the opposite? A fix-it fic for the disappearance of both characters at the end of season 3? (Or feel free to ignore the 4th season entirely.)

I'm also going to give you an entirely different option. Back in the old days, it was possible to request a fandom twice with different characters for Yuletide. Since AO3 doesn't work that way, let me offer you the option of ignoring my request for Michael and Caitlin completely, and instead writing about Moffet.

In the pilot, there is a line suggesting that Moffet had gotten into some sort of trouble on an earlier project “White Sands, in the 70's” that he had worked on. From what we see of Moffet, it's clear that he is a sexual sadist who gets off on torturing women. If you're inspired by the idea of writing a really dark fic, I'd be thrilled to see an exploration of just what happened at White Sands. If you do want to go that route, rape, murder, and the like are all fair game. Write Moffet just as sick and twisted as you want.

FYI, almost all of the Airwolf episodes are available on Hulu.

-The Writer Automaton-

I requested “The Writer” and the video I'm basing this request off of is here:

http://www.chonday.com/Videos/the-writer-automaton

A friend of mine emailed me a link to this video literally hours after Yuletide nominations ended last year, and I've wanted fic for it ever since. The Writer somehow just hits my “creepy” button (the background music certainly doesn't help). I just get this image of the Writer suddenly starting to write whatever he wants to write, rather than what he's programmed to write.

What does he start writing? That I don't know. Death threats? Predictions that start coming true? Clues for the police regarding local crimes? Papers attempting to prove his sentience? Love letters to the nearby coke machine? I can see this going in a bunch of directions all the way from hard core horror to cracky humor. I'm open to either or to anything in between, depending on what inspires you and what you're comfortable writing.

-SCP Foundation-

http://www.scp-wiki.net/

The “characters” I requested were SCP-038 The Cloning Tree, SCP-914 The Clockworks, and SCP-978 The Desire Camera. Please don't think that you need to use all of them, because I don't expect that. In fact, you really don't need to use any of them. If you have a favorite SCP that is similar, I'm completely open to you using that instead, because I've only scratched the surface of what's posted there, and I'm sure there are things that I haven't seen.

I first discovered the SCP Foundation while reading last year's Yuletide stories, in particular, the ones about the “coffee machine” that dispensed a variety of fluids. What I would really like here is a log of experiments, various people/things/other SCPs interacting with whatever SCP you choose. I think any of the SCP “characters” I requested would be suitable for that sort of treatment, so follow your own tastes. With this fandom I think I'm generally more interested in creativity, humor and possibly embarrassment (in particular I can see SCP-978 leading to some very amusing and embarrassing situations) rather than horror and dark fic, but if you have a dark idea that you really want to explore, I'm open to it.

***Adding a late edit as an idea just occurred to me.  If you happen to be interested in writing SCP-978 the Desire Camera, what if the camera was liberated/stolen from the SCP, and the possessor proceeded to take pictures of characters from other fandoms with it?

To conclude, I hope you found something here that's of some help to you. I'm eagerly awaiting whatever you come up with and I'm sure I'll enjoy it. Thanks again for writing!!!

Going to keep this short, as that's pretty much the idea of the exchange. :)  The fandom specific stuff below is cut and pasted from my signup.  Other than that - I'm pretty much squick free, but I'd prefer to avoid High School/Coffee Shop/etc AU's, mpreg, rape (except as mentioned below) and the more extreme kinks.  Feel free to browse some of my other exchange letters for additional ideas, if you'd like, and thank you so much for writing for me!!!!


Airwolf

Would love Michael/Caitlin porn (or Michael/Marella porn, if you'd rather go that way, even though she wasn't nommed.) Any sort of Michael or Caitlin pre or post series story. Either of them encountering a ghost/vampire/werewolf? Either of them dealing with trick or treaters on Halloween? Considering that he's been repeatedly blown up, drugged and tortured, how about Michael dealing with some of his own demons? If you want to write Moffet instead, how about some really dark and twisty backstory? I normally prefer to avoid rape stories because I see rape as being OOC for most of my requests, but with Moffet it's essentially canon, so feel free to go there. Not sure where you'd go with a Moffet "treat" but you're welcome to try if you'd like. As to do-not-wants, please don't pair Hawke with Cait - or Hawke with Michael, for that matter. (sorry, simply not my thing.) Otherwise, I'm easy. :)


The Writer Automation

Available here: http://www.chonday.com/Videos/the-writer-automaton
Someone sent me a link to this literally a couple hours after nominations for Yuletide closed last year, and I've wanted fic ever since. It totally hits all my buttons for creepy (a couple other people I've shown it too had the same reaction - maybe it's partly the music.) I can just picture the automation suddenly starting to write things other than what it's programmed to write. Premonitions? Death threats? Love letters to the coffee machine? Go as dark or as light as you'd like with this. I can easily envision twisty and evil, or cracky humor or pretty much anything in between.


Boston Legal

If you'd like to go that way, I'm fine with either slash or bromance between these two. My only real do not want here is a story about Denny's further decline (I choose to believe the experimental drugs worked.) Other than that - I could picture Denny locked and loaded dealing with the zombie/vampire/alien etc. hoard. Maybe some of Alan's sins coming back to haunt him? (Either literally as ghosts, or figuratively.) Or happy humorous fluff, maybe them dressing in outrageous Halloween costumes? - you decide.

Dear Gen Author,

Let me begin by thanking you for offering one of my fandoms. I'm pretty easy to please - just about the only sort of gen that I'd prefer you avoid is the high school/coffee shop/etc type AU. Other than that, if you have an idea, go for it. However, if you need some inspiration, I offer the following:


Airwolf
Michael and Caitlin
On the show, it seems that one of these two was always in some sort of peril and needed rescuing. How about for once, they get to be the heroes and rescue String and Dom?


The Big Bang Theory
Sheldon, Leonard, Raj, Howard and Penny
The boys invent a time machine, and they all visit the past? Or they're enlisted into some super-secret government program? Aliens land? They all go play a live action role-playing game together? So many possibilities here.


SGA
John and Rodney
Would love to see Rodney rescue John - preferably with brawn or weapons, rather than by saving the day with his intellect. Something that takes Rodney out of his comfort zone.


Castle
Rick and Kate
One of Castle's outlandish theories turning out to be right. Alternately, if you'd like to go a bit darker, Castle has to kill someone (a perp) to save Kate.


NASCAR rpf
Tony, Kevin, Kurt and Danica
Have you seen the "Coke racing family" road trip ads? I know the team members aren't all part of the Coke family, but would love to see them stuck on a road trip together.

Note for all fandoms, feel free to add additional characters as needed.

I hope I've given you some ideas, if you need anything more, feel free to look back through some of the other Dear Writer letters I've posted in the past. Mostly, have fun - I know I'll love whatever you come up with!

Dear Rare Characters Author,

First, let me thank you for writing for me. I'm pretty flexible, so I'm sure that I'll enjoy whatever you write. That said, if you are looking for guidance or suggestions, I can offer the following:

I don't really have any squicks, but would prefer to avoid mpreg, coffee shop/high school type AUs, kid fic, non-con (except as mentioned below) and the harder kinks. Things I like include h/c, humor, angst, PWP, gen. It's all good. :)

As for specific fandoms:

Airwolf

Michael
Marella
Moffett

Airwolf is my perennial request, mostly because there's so little fic out there that isn't String/Caitlin. Sorry, that's just not what I'm looking for. Anything with Michael would be great - backstory, spy-type case fic, character study. Feel free to pair him with either Caitlin or Marella if you'd like. I'd also love some backstory on Marella. How did she come to join the Firm? As to Moffett, I'm seconding a request I once saw for evil-Moffett fic. What happened at White Sands? When did he decide to steal Airwolf? (Non-con is fine here.)

Big Bang Theory

Amy
Bernadette
Beverly
Howard
Mrs. Wolowitz

A handful of the characters I find most interesting. Amy is in some ways a female Sheldon, but in other ways she isn't. Character study? Bernie seems awful ditzy for the scientist she is - is it an act, or is she really like that? Howard has grown the most of any of them - how did he end up being the one to marry and settle down? And I'd love to hear what made either Beverly or Mrs. Wolowitz the woman that they are.

Boston Legal

Denny
Alan

Please, no stories of Denny's further decline, otherwise anything goes. Either (or both) of the boys taking on the new Chinese run firm after the end of the series? An evening on the balcony? I'm open to either friendship/bromance or slash with these two, if you want to go that way, and I have no objection to including Shirley.

SGA

Todd
Wraith Queen

I don't see Todd as particularly evil - after all, a being has to eat. I'd love to see some future fic set after Carson and Jennifer find a way to "cure" the Wraith and allow them to eat regular food instead of life force. Or anything with Todd working with Atlantis. The Queen, however, I do see as evil, so feel free to make her just as evil and nasty as you'd like.

ST Voyager

Seven
Borg Queen

Seven regaining her humanity, or perhaps deciding she doesn't want to. If you want to pair her, Janeway, the Doctor, Torres, Kim or even the Borg Queen are fine, but please don't pair her with Chakotay. If you'd rather write the Queen, anything about her motivations or how she became Queen would be great.

I think that covers most everything, but if not, feel free to look through some of the other exchange letters I've posted for additional ideas. Whatever you write, don't stress and have fun!

Dear Author,

First, let me thank you so much for offering one of my favorite fandoms, and even more so for offering one of my rare pairs. I'm pretty open minded - fluff, PWP, humor, angst - it's all good. Drunken dub-con is fine, but I'd rather that you avoid non-con (mostly because I don't see any of these characters as rapists). No objection to mild kink (what's the old saying? Something along the lines of a feather is good, but using the whole chicken is a bit much...)

As to fandom specifics-
Airwolf - Michael/Caitlin or Michael/Marella. Either is great. One blanket scenario? Pretending to be a couple for a mission?

Big Bang Theory - Sheldon/Beverly or Sheldon/Amy/Penny. Scientific experiment? Penny as teacher? A dare?

Boston Legal - Denny/Alan or Denny/Alan/Shirley. I prefer to believe the drugs worked, and Denny gets better or at least doesn't get any worse. Other than that, anything goes.

If you have other ideas for any of these couples/threesomes, go for it! I'm sure I'll enjoy whatever you come up with!

Dear Crossovering Writer,

I hope I haven't scared you too badly with whatever we've matched on. I'm really pretty easy to please, and there's very little I won't read.

In general, I think most of the crosses that I've suggested lend themselves more toward humor and crack than toward angst and seriousness, but I'm fine with either direction. Probably best if you avoid non-com and the heavier kinks (if only to increase your pool of prospective readers), and I must admit I've never been a huge fan of high school/coffee shop/etc AUs. (Do feel free to toss the characters into the world you cross with, though.) Note that while I usually don't care for Mpreg, if you're writing crack, then mpreg is fair game. Any rating is fine, either shippy or gen. I will mention preferred characters and pairings below, but I'm open to others.

2 Broke Girls - gen or Max/Caroline
Big Bang Theory - favorite character Sheldon, Sheldon/Amy, Sheldon/Penny or gen
Castle - Castle/Beckett or gen
Fairy tales - am familiar with any of the popular ones
House - oddly, I've never watched the show, but have read a fair amount of fic. Love the snark.
SGA - gen or John/Rodney
TV commercials - I believe this was originally nommed under Progressive and Allstate (Flo and Mayhem) but feel free to invoke any popular ads (preferably from the US). If you do go with the insurance reps, don't think that you need to use both. I'm more interested in them causing havoc than in shipping the two.

Okay, that said - a smattering of ideas, in case you're drawing a blank. If you have a different idea, go with it, if not:

2 Broke Girls - they witness a crime or are victims of one, some of the other characters come into the restaurant (picture Max waiting on Sheldon - or on Mayhem - or accidentally feeding Rodney citrus), Max and Caroline living a modern retelling of a fairy tale.

Big Bang Theory - Sheldon/Amy fairy tale, Sheldon as a witness, some/all of the boys recruited to Atlantis, Howard building "Flobot" or the gang dealing with a Mayhem induced apocalypse.

Castle - Wraith loose in NY or Beckett turns out to be related to Dr. Beckett or Castle has the ATA gene, Mayhem is a suspect, a Cinderella retelling set before Caskett got together?

House - someone with a weird alien disease or even mpreg, Mayhem causing a disaster or an epidemic?

SGA - A planet on which ogres or other fairy tale characters are real, Flo trying to insure Atlantis?

TV commercials - remember the ad in which Flo had a castle built of insurance boxes? That could be a jumping off point.

In any event, I'm sure I'll be pleased with whatever you write, whether or not any of my suggestions speak to you. Have fun and don't stress!!!
