Friday: Alternate Universes

Hello, everyone. I’m gehayi and today's theme is alternate universes. Prompts can involve alternate history (some major real-world event did or did not happen in-universe, like the Aztecs defeating Cortez or the Roman Empire never falling); parallel universes that in alternate dimensions; bizarro universes, where things are reversed from the usual context (for example, ugliness equaling beauty there, and vice versa); twisted, dark parallel worlds made from your worst nightmares; universes where one or two small changes have made a huge difference; mirror universes, where good and evil are reversed; elseworlds, where characters are put in situations drastically different from their canonical norm; universes where a certain character was never born/never existed; and so on.

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...
Harry Potter, Lily Potter + Harry Potter, Lily grabbed Harry and Apparated away before Voldemort could harm either of them
Stranger Things, Nancy Wheeler, Nancy is the only one who remembers Barb afterwards
The Little Mermaid (Disney), Eric/Ariel, Eric chose to become a merman

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 2017 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.
