Heroes Big Boom

So, I'm thinking about doing the heroes_bigboom. But what shall I write? Give me some insight, dear flist, if you have any to spare!

Some things I DON'T want to write

Just to be contrary, I'm going to list a few things I'd rather not do. Crossovers, for one. I can do a crossover for any number of other big bangs, and for this Big Boom, I'd rather stick to just Heroes. Also I'd rather not do a sole single-couple romance. I tend to go for somewhat bigger plots *waves arms dramatically* and compact romances aren't my style. And finally, I don't want to do an AU without powers. I like people's powers!

Some things I've been thinking about writing

A sequel to Gladiators - my ancient Rome AU where some of our favorite Heroes are gladiator slaves. I've been pondering a sequel to that story for a while, with not only Nathan/Peter, but maybe a bit of Sylar/Luke, along with political power plays, bloody arena fights, and hot, sweaty almost dub-con orgies.

Post-Jump fic - Set after Claire's jump at the end of Season 4. Though I've written a couple of fics where people get right to the point of talking about the practicalities of living in a world with people that have extraordinary abilities, I've always wussed out from actually exploring that in detail. Like, seriously, when someone can punch through walls or change someone's thoughts, how do you change the laws to handle that? It's a pickle, no doubt.

A sequel to Moneypenny - Sylar and Luke as FBI agents. Possibly also meeting up with the Petrelli brothers. They handle Special-related crime. And stuff happens.

Heroes in spaaaaaaaaaaaaaace! 'Cause who doesn't love space? Maybe the Heroes were all frozen and shot into space and someone finds them centuries later and they seriously fuck up the future.

A sequel to Get Your Money's Worth, the slave!fic universe I made for a heroes_exchange fic. Luke/Lyle trying to find their way together in a very different world where Specials are in charge.

Or maybe something entirely different, dear flist. Lend me your ideas! I'm a multishipper and an AU lover, so go ahead and suggest sommat off the wall! :D

I sort of like the Heroes in space thing. Like a Firefly fusion? You, the kind where the Heroes characters inhabit the Firefly world, but no actual Firefly characters show up. With someone as the captain and someone else as the pilot and someone else as the mechanic and someone as the doctor etc etc. But the plot doesn't have to follow Firefly at all. Just the general tone of the thing.

I'm sort of tinkering with doing a Firefly fusion for Lost for next year's sci-fi big bang so it's on the brain. (with Sawyer as Mal, Miles as Jayne, Jack as Simon, Claire as River, Frank as Wash, Kate as Kaylee, and then they just pick up a bunch of random passengers... and guess who fixes the ship's communications equipment when it breaks!)

Actually, I already did the Heroes/Firefly thing! Big Damn Heroes. It actually follows the first part of the pilot pretty closely, and I intended to follow it in the next couple of parts, but I have just never gotten back around to writing the next few chapters. That could be fun though; I put a lot of thought into that world.

Hee hee! Lost as Serenity's crew! That would be A+ awesome. :D

I'd love to read your take on a post-Jump fic. Maybe an ensemble fic with some characters hiding from it all, others start cults or become reality celebrities and all the while the government, religious leaders and the public are trying to adjust.

Just a thought :)

Could do, could do. My only concern is how sprawling it would get. Though if I broke it into distinct pieces... *ponders* That might work. Will have a think and see if anything jumps out.

Hmm, maybe an AU where Adam succeeded in setting the virus loose? Maybe that's been done to death and I missed it, but I think it would be interesting to get his POV on that after the fact, and maybe understand more of his motivations and/or regrets, if he has any. It might give you the potential to use a lot of characters or just a few of your choosing.

I'll be really glad of anything you do,though! I signed on to do it already. :D
