On Thursdays we play in Alternate Universes

Hello, everyone. I’m squidgiepdx and today's theme is that great old standby, "Alternate Universes". Why today, you ask? BECAUSE I SAID SO! Wait, wait, sorry. That was an angry AU version of me from the "Them's Fightin' Words" universe. Let's start again.


No wait, that's not it. Oh yeah, we were talking Alternate Universes. You know, where John Sheppard is the President of the United States, and Rodney McKay is Prime Minister of Canada, and they start flirting so hard at a UN meeting that someone accidentally annexes two tiny islands that sit between Maine and New Brunswick. Or maybe Steve McGarrett is a principal at Charlie's school, and he and Danny Williams get up to a little hanky panky during parent/teacher night. Or how about I give you four words that puts every London restauranteur on edge: Sherlock Holmes, Food Critic. Alternate Universes. You get it, right?

Just a few rules:
No more than five prompts in a row.
No more than three prompts in the same fandom.
Use the character's full names and fandom's full name for ease adding to the Lonely Prompts spreadsheet.
No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing, or use the spoiler cut option found here.
If your fill contains spoilers, warn and leave plenty of space, or use the spoiler cut.
If there are possible triggers in your story, please warn for them in the subject line!

Prompts should be formatted as follows: [Use the character's full names and fandom's full name]
Fandom, Character +/ Character, Prompt

Some examples to get the ball rolling...
+ Stargate Atlantis, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay, President and/or PM AU
+ Hawaii Five-0, Steve McGarrett/Danny Williams, Steve is a school principal, Danny's father of a student
+ Sherlock, Sherlock Holmes +or/ John Watson, Sherlock Holmes: Food Critic

We use AO3 to bookmark filled prompts. If you fill a prompt and post it to AO3 please add it to the Bite Sized Bits of Fic from 2019 collection. See further notes on this new option here.

Not feeling any of today’s prompts? Check out Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet 1 (not very current), Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet 2, or the Calendar Archives, or for more recent prompts, you can use LJ's advanced search options to find prompts to request and/or fill.

While the Lonely Prompts Spreadsheets and LJ's advanced search options are available, bookmarking the links of prompts you like might work better for searching for in the future.
