Dean disappearing? Yup, works for me. Because Sam loves Dean in Season one and will look for him and find him. With much thinking and kicking of ass along the way. Hopefully. (sorry, tonight's episode kicked me right in the teeth)

Dark serial killer fic. Hell, yea.

And was never a big fan of Methos, while I loved Richie to death.

Of course I'll read any of these you care to write, but these are what I'd especially like to read!

Dean disappearing looks like a clear winner.

Hey, a Richie fan! I did not know that about you. Here's my two Richie fics, if you're interested. http://keerawa.livejournal.com/2733.html

Haven't seen the episode yet. Lalalalalala I can't hear you! *grins*

I liked the Duncan, Tessa, Richie season much better than those that came after. Though I watched to the end, I was not as into it after they killed Richie off. So I would love to read Richiefic!

All the due South WIPs sound really interesting (well the other fandom wips sound cool too but my brain is consumed with due South, hee)...."RayK suspects Fraser of being on the take"???? And Fraser in mental institution - I wants it.

Though I am kind of afraid of the dark serial killer fic option...

Me too. That's why I stopped writing it.

I like the sound of the Dean disappearing one--I know you get into Sam's headspace really well, and so I think it would be freaking awesome to see how you explore his personality back then. Also, I bet you could do freaking awesome casefic.

The others, not like they're good options, but more of showing my personal preferences. I shy away from dark, and just am not as into pre-series things as a lot of other folks are.

Dean disappearing, check!

You'd probably like the outsider POV one - but I don't think anyone would exactly 'like' the dark, probemlatized incest of the other.

Cool, institutionlized Fraser seems to have intrigued alot of folks! It's definitely on my list.
Oct. 30th, 2010 10:24 am (UTC)
Well, you knew I was going to vote for the due South fics. The first one is the one about Caroline's people that we talked about at BP, right? Feel free to send it to me any time if you need feedback.

Hmm, the one where Ray thinks Fraser might be on the take intrigues me. Where would Ray get that idea? And are there any circumstances under which Fraser would do it?

And the mental institution thing reminds me of something [personal profile] aria and I have been discussing. We both had the idea independently of a fic where Fraser doesn't actually see ghosts--he just has mental problems. The challenge would be to show this from Fraser's POV as an unreliable narrator. I have pretty much left the idea to her, because I kind of lacked a plot for it other than the main idea, but I don't know if she's actually started to write it. Is your idea similar to this, or different?

And it's not like I wouldn't read the dark serial killer thing, but I want the others more. Hmm, that's not the same story as the one where Fraser lies for Ray, is it? Because I remember you talking about how dark that one was and how you didn't want to write it.
Oct. 30th, 2010 03:48 pm (UTC)
You got it, that's the one where Ray meets Caroline's people. I will absolutely send it to you when I've got it whipped into shape.

Ray has absolutely valid, canonical reasons for thinking so. How long had they been partners before Ray got dragged into an IA investigation over RayV lifting 9k of heroin? NOT LONG.

Not all that close to what I'm doing, although that's part of what has Ray worried. I mean, Fraser's normal is just so far from everyone else's.

Yeah, the serial killer fic is the one where Fraser lies for Ray. Still very, very dark. But I think I may have built up my tolerance now. Maybe.

Ooooh, what awesome choices in ALL the fandoms!

The Season 1 Dean disappearance is epecially intriguing, especially depending on just *when* in s1 it happens. How euipped is Sam to really track him down? What contacts does he have/remember? Is part of him reluctant to search because it would mean he could go back to a more "normal" life? And how guilty would *that8 make him feel?

*ahem* So yeah, really like that one.

It was hard to pick a dS one, but the mental institution won out. I wonder a lot about the circumstances that led to this, and what Fraser and Ray's relationship is at this point. Part of me can see Fraser committing himself (maybe more ghosts, or something like that, made him really question his bag of marbles) and just calling Ray to let him know how to reach him.

And for Highlander, the Methos bit became an instant fave with the word "creepy" - I really, really want ot know what's going on.

I like your thoughts over the Dean disappearing casefic. That response really makes me want to write it! That and institutionalized Fraser look like clear winners of the poll, so I'll definitely work on those. And how terrifying would it be, after 5 millenium, for Methos to find his body changing?
Thanks, mizface!

I like your thoughts over the Dean disappearing casefic.

Oh, thank goodness! *wipes brow in relief*

I was concerned I was overstepping, but couldn't resist letting you know where my brain went with that prompt.

Looking very forward to reading!

How do you feel about beta'ing the 'Dean disappears' fic for me?
Nov. 16th, 2010 02:59 pm (UTC)

I've never betaed SPN before, but I am completely caught up (and have been rewatching S1, actually), so I'd lovelovelove to!

Thanks for asking!

I voted for all of the DS options, even the serial killer fic--though the others sound more intriguing. The HL options sound good too, except I was meh on the Richie/OFC one.
Oct. 31st, 2010 10:59 am (UTC)
*salutes* I'll get to work on those dS stories!
Nov. 6th, 2010 05:12 am (UTC)
I've always loved your portrayal of Dawson and Methos working together (and apart) to find livable ways to survive. They live in a complex and shadowy world, and their conflicted choices are never the easy choices.

Thank you Mackiedockie! FYI, on the NaNoWriMo site it asks you to list authors that inspired you to write - you're the 3rd on my list.
