I didn't add this to my sign-up in time, but I'll link it on the DW page for the challenge.

First, thanks for offering in one of these fandoms, and thanks in advance for taking the time to create something!  You're awesome just for that, truly.

Generally, things you should know about my likes/dislikes: I prefer angst over fluff, I like happy endings that come after struggle or discord, I love character studies and backstories. I love minor characters in fic, the chance to flesh out what we don't see on the page or screen. Not into pregnancy AU, high school or university AU, or modern AU. While I love angst, I don't love trauma, especially of the sexual variety. Not into threesome pairings in any of my requested fandoms and prefer femslash if any slash (though not graphic).

Specifics: 

AUSTEN Jane - Works - Gen in the male friendships listed: Wentworth and Harville (would LOVE an adventure-on-the-high-seas, bonding over age and situation, etc.  Harville finding out the details of how Anne broke it off with Frederick, but set against a broader story) and Darcy and Bingley (Bingley being generally wiser and more mature than he's usually depicted, origin tale for his friendship with Darcy, gentlemen-about-town stories, etc).  For Elinor/Colonel Brandon, I'd love to see them end up together from the get-go, not because of Marianne's later death or betrayal, something sweet but not cloying.  Wouldn't mind seeing Elinor and Brandon meeting up with Darcy and Elizabeth somehow, Lizzie and Elinor becoming confidantes in some way.  For Elizabeth/Darcy on their own, I love canon-divergent stories about how they got together, such as they realized their feelings sooner, took action sooner, Lizzie says yes the first time, or things took longer, they met in a different situation, etc.  Sky's the limit, right?  :-)

Dawson's Creek - Well, I sail on the good 'ship Joey/Pacey, but I love the barely-requited high school feel of Joey/Dawson.  Play on my heartstrings with bittersweet teenage goodness!  Prefer Joey's POV for this, especially at the latest part of their relationship, maybe even during a time later when they are about to try again and Joey's most in the throes of nostalgia.  Alternately, friendship stories about the three of them are awesome.  Of the three, if it's a solo tale, Pacey would be most interesting to me.  

Possession - A.S. Byatt - Hmm.  I love Christabel/Randolph so much, and I think the thing I want most is for it to work out for them somehow.  To keep from handing out too much collateral damage (poor Blanche!), why not have them meet younger?  Different circumstances?  Maybe their love remains unrequited and on the page, maybe they are discovered and there's a scandal but all ends well, who knows.  Another thought - May Bailey discovers her parentage after all, because SHE finds the letters.  How would that go?  When would it happen, and if Randolph still lives, would she seek him out?  So much possibility!
