Plot Box!

This is a list of old exchange prompts, the first from various heroes_exchanges, and then the ones from xover_exchange. These are things I may write, or perhaps someone else wants to write, or maybe you just want to look and them and think, "Damn, jaune_chat has weird taste."

1. "Tell Me a Fable" - One character tries to tell another a secret through the misdirection of an "innocent" story.
2. Power Play - In the bedroom, or elsewhere, someone or someones experiments with their ability in all kinds of interesting ways.
3. "I Only Hurt the Ones That Don't Love You" - To help the object of their affection, one character causes grief and pain to those who dare inconvienience their love. What the object of affection does about or (or even if he/she finds out) is up to you!
4. "Dark Side of the Moon" - An extended eclipse finally ends, and when it does, people find their powers switched. Mohinder is an empath, Claire has super strength, Edgar can move the earth, Matt can regenerate, Nathan has technopathy, Micah is the master of time and space, whatever seems most appropriate/amusing/wacky to you. How does that change them? And the world?


1. The first Petrelli/Bennet Christmas together. Peter, Nathan, and Claire are searching for gifts for each other before the big day and keep running into each other at the mall/store. They end up asking each other’s advice for gift-giving and revealing a lot about how they know the other person in the process. (If you want to porn it up, some sexytimes flashbacks or post-shopping bedroom fun wouldn’t go amiss! Or non-porn WAFF would be fun too!)
2. Some kind of riff on “Gifts of the Magi,” by O. Henry.
3. It’s the first time Maya’s ever seen snow. If things had gone better for her, how would her, Mohinder, and Molly (and Matt too, if you like!) have spent the first snowfall in New York?
4. Christmas alone – Sylar or Claire.
5. At the stroke of midnight – A new or established couple making promises and New Year’s resolutions. Funny, serious, romantic, or sexy, dealer’s choice.
6. Carnival holidays – When every day is special, and every person the same, what do the carnies do to mark a very special occasion?
7. Someone is given, or gives, themselves as a gift. Use of ribbon and “wrappings” is highly encouraged! (Con or non/dubcon, whatever works for you.)
8. What in the world is Lyle’s take on Claire’s crazy life? What’s he been up to while everyone else in his family has been running around? How does he celebrate anything when he’s been marginalized for so long? (Friendship or whatnot with some of Noah’s partners, Claude, the Haitian, Candice, etc. would be cool.)
9. If the prompts don’t trip your trigger, here’s some general themes you could work with: control/loss of it, on the outside looking in, ghosts of failures/triumphs past, evil doing good for once, sacrifice, love despite all obstacles.


1. Sylar/Ando - When Sylar discovers a man with a supercharging power amongst the rebels, he goes to great lengths to capture him and use him. Would like to include Sylar being somewhat addicted to the power Ando can give him, and have a need to dominate him so he can get his fix.

2. Matt and Mohinder, post Daphne-death, Mohinder comforting him, both of them apologizing for lots of things.

3. Nathan/Peter - Nathan and Peter flying together after a victory against government agents. Triumph and adrenaline temporarily suspend the tension and bad feelings between them for a long interlude of more-than-brotherly closeness. Possibly a bittersweet ending?

4. Sylar/Peter - A little AU. Sylar has helped the government find most of the Heroes and taken more than his share of powers. Peter is the last Hero standing, the last one Sylar can find, the last person he really wants. But Sylar isn't happy, despite all his abilities, and he is almost ready to listen when Peter tries to tell him why and how he can fix the problem...

5. (This would be the for certain lower-rated fic) The New House of M3. Micah, Molly, and Monica are running the rebellion, Molly finding people, Micah helping them with all communication, paperwork, and new identities, and Monica actually physically getting people out that they can't help any other way. A day in the life of the rebels.


As an overarcing prompt - Power Play! I want to see powers at work in all possible, evil, sensual, perverted ways.

Claire/Elle - going after Level 5 guys alone, without their dads, they comfort each other after a close call. Vigorously.

Claire/Elle - Elle wants to hurt Claire, but Claire can take it, and wants to. (BDSM or shades thereof a plus, of course)

Monica/Daphne - St. Joan means her Nemesis, who can't run fast enough to get away from what she suddenly wants...

Sylar/Peter - (Going with pre-powerloss Peter) Peter's got the Hunger, Sylar's got a new apprentice, and they both got a brand new bag... (Some dubcon couldn't hurt here, or maybe it would, but in a good way).

Sylar/Maya - (Going with mostly powerless-Sylar, pre-Mohinder visit) Sylar has a new toy, and he has to know how she works, from tips, to toes. (Manipulative!Sylar, double meanings, reveling in his control over her powers).


And these are the xover_exchange prompts:

Prompt Type #1 - Themes:
These are general prompts that could be used for any characters in any of your listed fandoms. Don't specify any fandoms or characters. Please list at least five.
Prompt: Unwilling Allies
Prompt: Saving Face
Prompt: Maybe We’ll See Each Other Again
Prompt: Locks and Keys
Prompt: “I’m a good person/We’re good people. Really.”
Prompt: “How do you do that?”

**Each of your fandoms must be represented at least twice in the following two sections, meaning the name of the fandom needs to show up at least twice. You don't need to write prompts for every single possible combination of two fandoms (though you can). The more fandoms listed above, the more prompts you'll need to write.**

Prompt Type #2 - Potential Scenarios:
Here you get to specify fandoms as well as set-ups. List at least 5.
Fandoms: Heroes/Criminal Minds Scenario: Aaron Hotchner’s BAU team is on the case of a head-mutilating serial killer.
Fandoms: Heroes/Supernatural Scenario: The ghosts of Heroes lost are plaguing the survivors. Sam and Dean come to investigate and lay the dead to rest. Would like the ghosts to be plaguing Nathan, Peter, and/or Sylar (their sins/failures come back to haunt them).
Fandoms: Heroes/Firefly Scenario: The crew of Firefly ends up smuggling some live cargo, escaped experiments from River’s “school.” Mal and his crew have to keep them (Peter, Sylar, Hiro, Maya, Daphne, etc., dealer’s choice) from inadvertently destroying the ship, or the crew, on their long voyage.
Fandoms: Dollhouse/Criminal Minds Scenario: Several unusual deaths by scalpel have been turning up in the L.A. area. The BAU team is sent on Alpha’s trail, but who is the mysterious brunette that keeps showing up around the crime scenes?
Fandoms: Supernatural/Criminal Minds Scenario: Though the FBI was told the murdering, grave-desecrating brother team of Sam and Dean Winchester had died, similar cases have been showing up recently. The case is re-opened, and the BAU team is sent to investigate several murders with their signature stamp. The profile seems to indicate the brothers are insane. Are they?
Fandoms: Dollhouse/Firefly Scenario: A few similar faces keep showing up wherever Serenity touches down. A fellow Companion on one planet, a trader on the next, a lawman on the third. Who are these people, really? Why don’t they seem to recognize Serenity’s crew? And why is someone keeping tabs on them all?

Prompt Type #3 - Potential Crossover Pairings:
Come up with pairings you’d like to see interact, as many as you can think of. Please specify after each prompt if you would like (gen only) or (gen or romantic). Romantic only is not an option. List at least 4.
Fandoms: Heroes/Supernatural Pairing: Peter/Dean (gen or romantic)
Fandoms: Criminal Minds/Supernatural Pairing: Dean/Morgan (gen only)
Fandoms: Firefly/Dollhouse Pairing: River/Echo or Sierra (gen only)
Fandoms: Firefly/Dollhouse Pairing: Inara/Echo (gen or romantic)
Fandoms: Criminal Minds/Dollhouse Pairing: Garcia/Topher (gen only)
Fandoms: Firefly/Heroes Pairing: River/Peter (gen or romantic)

Fandoms: Heroes/Dollhouse Pairing: Nathan/Adelle (gen or romantic)
Fandoms: Heroes/Firefly Pairing: Mohinder/Simon (gen only)


Prompt Type #1 - Themes:
These are general prompts that can be used for any characters in any of your listed fandoms. Don't specify any fandoms or characters. Please list at least five.
Prompt: Control or loss of it
Prompt: "We're the good guys"
Prompt: Strange bedfellows (doesn't have to be literal!) ;)
Prompt: Never again
Prompt: Get it done!
Prompt: Behind locked doors

Prompt Type #2 – Pairing and Scenarios:
List crossover pairings and/or scenarios you’d like to see---as many or as few of each as you like (but more is always better, since you don’t know what fandoms will be written!). After each pairing prompt, please specify if you would like (gen only) or (gen or romantic). ‘Romantic only’ is not an option. My advice is to load up on pairing prompts, since they are easier both to think of and to write. Also, research has shown that the more specific the scenario prompt, the less likely it is to get written; leave short set-ups, not plot outlines.
Fandoms: Heroes/Dollhouse Pairing: Nathan/Adelle (gen or romantic)
Fandoms: Criminal Minds/Supernatural Pairing: Morgan/Dean (gen only)
Fandoms: Criminal Minds/Dollhouse Pairing: Garcia/Topher (gen or romantic)
