I don't like Mondays, so let's play in an Alternate Universe

Hello, everyone. I’m squidgiepdx and today's theme is that great old standby, "Alternate Universes". Now there are any number of ways that you can interpret that, because you know since there's an infinite number of universes, there's an infinite number of places you can drop your characters into and make them perform how you want. Maybe Benton Fraser is an underwear model and Kowalski is the advertising executive that literally found him on the street. (Yes, I know - literally. But in this case, finding Fraser on the street is kinda normal). Or maybe you can imagine the headline, "Evan Lorne, Pastry Chef Extraordinaire". Could you see Steve Rogers not as Captain America, but running a pet store when Bucky walks in for the first time? Whatever you can think of when it comes to Alternate Universes, today's the day!

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...
+ due South, Benton Fraser/Ray Kowalski, Ray discovers Fraser and has him audition to be an underwear model.
+ Stargate Atlantis/Any, Evan Lorne/Any, "Evan Lorne, Pastry Chef Extraordinaire"
+ MCU, Steve Rogers/Bucky Barnes, They met when Steve opened a pet store

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.
