Requests and Claims

Righty-o, then! Here's the ubiquitous claims post. Feel free to offer your most cherished fantasies for Merlin's future! Where would you like the show to go? What would you like to see happen next? And what do you think might happen in the distant future, with all your favorite characters, long after the five seasons of the show are done? Anything and everything you can possibly imagine for the show's future has a definite chance of being written, drawn or vidded here. Get loose! Get freaky. Uh huh. Uh huh.

The following rules might help you better adhere to the threadbare requirements of this humble fest. Please follow these rules, and spare me the trouble of spitting fire futilely in my underground cave while you hand my special magic sword over to someone else! Even if it is Uther Pendragon. Yes, that's right. I'm looking at you, young warlocks. Have a care.

1. All requests must be made in the form of comments to this post.

2. All requests must be set in the future. (After the end of Season One.)

3. No request may deviate in any way from known canonical facts.

4. Anyone can make a request; only a member may claim it.

5. Requests must be claimed by replying to the comments in which the requests were made.

6. You may make or claim as many requests as you like.

7. Any number of people may claim a request, so long as they each do something unique with it.

8. Your requests may be as long or as short as you like. Simple prompts are okay, too.

9. Yes, you can claim your own prompt. Just make sure to leave a comment saying that you are.

10. If there is a particular pairing or situation that you definitely do not want to see, say so.

Go ahead and make your requests, everyone! Make as many as you'd like; claim as many as you'd like. You have to be a member to claim a request, though. Keep that in mind.

Once you've claimed a prompt, go here to read the submission rules. Do not post to this community if you a) haven't read the submission rules, or b) aren't sure that you'll be able to obey them. But if you are ready to play by the rules, then you're more than welcome to join our happy little fest! Claim a prompt and get going! The deadline is the 1st of September 2009, so there's plenty of time for you to churn out an entry or two.

Contact me if you have any questions. My email address is saucery AT yahoo DOT com. I'm also leaving a few requests below, just to show the rest of you how it's done. (Ha. Well, the real motive is to get someone to claim my prompts. Hee!)

meeting of the immortals
This idea just literally popped into my head this morning... Hope this doesn't violate any of the canonical rules...

Immortal Merlin while waiting for Arthur's return meets Jack Harkness. What would happen when 2 immortals with very different views on love meet each other in the future? I'd like for them to become sort of drinking buddies. They make plans to meet once a century or something and they'd chat about their lives and love life... Merlin's lack of one and Jack's lively one? NO slash between Merlin and Jack whatsoever. Jack can hit on Merlin, b/c otherwise he would not be Jack Harkness but Merlin does not reciprocate AT ALL. It ends with Jack showing up at their next meeting time and place but no Merlin. And Jack realizes that Arthur had returned and Merlin had gone with him after whatever it was Arthur needed to do the save the world.

Claim hopefully?

I'm not sure but I have lots of ideas about this buzzing around and I love Jack :D

Re: meeting of the immortals
Just a comment from the shy (and generally bumbling) mod to say: Please go ahead and claim this! And to hinadori, you're quite right, this doesn't violate fest rules, since it changes nothing about canon. Crossovers are okay, as long as canon remains unchanged!

And your request is AWESOME, by the way. Jack and Merlin! Of COURSE! *SQUEE*

Re: meeting of the immortals

Oh I neglected to include that is has to be Arthur/Merlin... otherwise it wouldn't really work. Hope that is not a problem for you?

And I love Jack too but I find him so tragic... being a serial monogamist, I find his views on love and life really sad.

Re: meeting of the immortals
Of course it's not a problem. M/A is the best :D

I find Jack's view on love & life pretty funny on the show, although if you look too far into it, it's pretty depressing. I feel very sorry for poor Ianto who has to put up with a boyfriend(?) flirting with anything that has a pulse xD

Re: meeting of the immortals
I feel for Ianto also but Jack is more tragic. Whatever it is he may feel for Ianto, Jack has eternity by himself... always alone. At least in Merlin's case he knows he'll meet Arthur again. Jack only has that one brief moment with Ianto in his very long life which is why I wish he'd be more faithful.

This is totally going OT so I'll stop now.
