no bingo

Now that amnesty is over, I’m kind of pretending to myself that I’m proud of producing absolutely no fic for trope_bingo, but that’s not true.

I actually started a couple of things at different times and didn’t finish them.

Ah, well.
I looked at my way-overdue, no-fanworks-done-yet, amnesty-about-to-expire-in-a-month Trope Bingo card:

bets / wagers hurt / comfort au: historical matchmaker au: fantasy
sharing a bed genderswap wingfic snowed in huddle for warmth
au: fairy tale / myth mind control FREE

SPACE
au: alternate professions immortality / reincarnation
presumed dead unexpected friendship time travel road trip au: mundane
friends to lovers / friends with benefits fuck or die first time / last time kidfic trapped in a dream


Ugh, whatever. Lot of stuff there I couldn't make myself write, unless it were a few very sarcastic sentences.

Yeah, the mix of trying to write to trope and actually writing fanfic is just not for me. Well, at least being ineligible for the next one isn't losing anything I could use.

Oh, yeah, more musing about trope bingo. (My card is here.)

I think at least one entry (or whatever they are called) will be Narnia meta (mostly). I actually have that maybe a quarter written already.

But I am bemused that at the moment there is a good chance that my bingo will not involve lots of Narnia, Wonder Woman, and/or Yotsuba-verse. There may be really subtle allusions to Wondy and W. M. Marston, and maybe a couple of entries will be very Narnia, but I don't think I'm going to fit in "Gaga meets Koiwai" as a bingo.

Nope, the current plan is to try to do a AU fairytale of Sean Saves the World (but I need plot for that); an angry fixfic/anti-fic (is that even a word) with a really weird version of Queen Swanwhite; a weird night out in the Underground part of Philippe Keyaerts's Small World; and a rambling meta on Narnia that takes an odd turn by the end. And possibly another Small World fic, that was going to be my "fairytale/myth" entry, but ended up not quite making sense in that spot.

Also this: When I come up with ideas, they are often fannish fusion wackiness that doesn't really match much on the bingo card.

But I did come up with plot for a story that could actually be a postage stamp, and then realized it was all new characters in my head. I could pretend that the main character is Sara from QC in a timeline averted by her being eaten by an allosaurus, or just have Dark Angel pop up at the end and say, "Hello, Princess!" but those feel like cheating. So, I may not write it. (It was kind of based on a friend's traumatic day anyway, and went in a pessimistic direction from there, so that may be just as well.)

So here's my trope bingo card:

bets / wagers hurt / comfort au: historical matchmaker au: fantasy
sharing a bed genderswap wingfic snowed in huddle for warmth
au: fairy tale / myth mind control FREE

SPACE
au: alternate professions immortality / reincarnation
presumed dead unexpected friendship time travel road trip au: mundane
friends to lovers / friends with benefits fuck or die first time / last time kidfic trapped in a dream


Does "first time / last time" have to be sex? I can't find a clear answer right now. Spoke too soon. Nope, it's wide open. Good good.
