Eeeee!  Not Prime Time!

Seriously, I love this exchange.  It hasn't once failed to bring the fun.  Plus, NPT means spring and summer and all that comes with those.  Can't complain.

So, dear writer, know that you have an astronomical chance of making my day, just because we matched and you're writing for me.  :-)

Some details and suggestions under the cut.

Generally speaking: 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. BUT I love canon-divergence or AUs within the given universe (a different meet-cute, or a different ending, for example). While I love angst, I don't love trauma, especially of the sexual variety. Not really into a lot of kink or graphic sex.

Howdy NPT writer! Hopefully, we got matched on a fandom you're as excited about as I was when I chose them. I wrote most of what I was thinking in my sign-up, but here's some more about me generally.

Generally, I'm a fan of angst, post-apocalypse canon and AU, buddy road trips, awesome women being awesome, pre-series spec and canon-divergent AUs (the kind that just deviates within the universe - I don't like alt time periods, high school, coffee shop or other such AUs). For most of my fandoms, if I have a ship, it's probably het, but there are exceptions. For all that I like angsty, dark stuff, I don't go in for sexual violence, explicit or otherwise and prefer no irrevocable main character deaths.

Specifics under the cut in case of spoilers, especially for the current season of Game of Thrones and most recent season of The Walking Dead..

Well, the Not Prime Time reveal happened while I was away, so I'm late in posting this here. This fic ate my brain for a good number of weeks. It's wildly AU and went in a totally different direction than I thought it would when I decided I wanted to write about Shireen surviving.

TITLE: In Spite of All Terror
FANDOM: Game of Thrones
RATING:  PG-13
CHARACTERS: Shireen Baratheon, Brienne of Tarth, Sansa Stark, Dacey Mormont, Theon Greyjoy, Podrick Payne, Samwell Tarly, a few others make cameos, and an OC
PAIRING: None
SUMMARY: Shireen Baratheon escapes, and gathers companions, each seeking to survive and none able to continue alone, whether because of danger or duty. This is the tale of how they meet.

Written for Sumi for Not Prime Time 2015

This is long, so I'm just going to provide the link.

Howdy NPT writer! Hopefully, we got matched on a fandom you're as excited about as I was when I chose them. I gave a couple of ideas in my sign-up, but thought I'd flesh it out a bit here.

Generally, I'm a fan of angst, post-apocalypse, buddy road trips, awesome women being awesome, pre-series spec and AUs (the kind that just deviates within the universe - I don't like alt time periods, high school, or other such AUs).

So, thank you, dear NPT author, and I can't wait to read what you write!

Okay y'all.  There are just a few X-Files sign-ups on Not Prime Time.   Hoping to entice some of you who may have some time and interest to sign up for this!!  Also, there are other fandoms that may fall in your interests.  This sucker is pretty Marvel-heavy right now and while that's totally cool, I'd love a little diversity.

Not Prime Time authors are revealed today, so I can cop to writing the following:

The Man in the Gabardine Suit is a Spy (Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America movies)
Steve and Natasha are on the run. Until one day, they aren't.  This one was written for [livejournal.com profile] snickfic and was from my actual assignment.  I wasn't able to see Captain America: Winter Soldier a second time so my canon is a bit squiffy, and my tonal inspiration was drawn a bit from the final episodes of the first season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  But truthfully, I started shipping Steve/Natasha after that movie and the idea of them on the run fascinates me.  

To Humbler Functions, I Call Thee (Game of Thrones)
Catelyn Stark, mother.  For [archiveofourown.org profile] etoilecourageuse tried a few different ways of writing what I was driving at: Catelyn Stark's identity as a mother is her highest calling, and how does mothering five children of her own and serving in that function for two other children really become rooted in her?  I also originally tagged this as also being a Song of Ice and Fire story, for which I was chastised in the comments because I shifted the canon to suit my needs re: Robb Stark's birth.  But frankly, since a certain incarnation of Cat is unlikely to grace our screens, and I'm theorizing that every decision, every opportunity of mothering contributes to that eventual fate, I think this story is for both canons.  ::shrug::
