I should be asleep, etc etc, but I've been working on Yuletide fic and homework and the weekend is coming up and I need something to keep me moving and not get stuck. So! Meme.

This is from LJ and then tumblr and I have no idea where it originated, sorry.

Pick a trope from this list and provide a fandom/pairing and I’ll tell you something about the story I’d write for that combination (i.e. write a snippet from the story or write not!fic or tell you the title and summary for the story I would write)

1. genderswap
2. bodyswap
3. drunk!fic
4. huddling for warmth
5. pretending to be married
6. secretly a virgin
7. amnesia
8. cross-dressing
9. forced to share a bed
10. truth or dare
11. historical AU
12. accidental-baby-acquisition
13. apocalypse fic
14. telepathy
15. High School / College AU

Anything I write will be solidly not!fic, probably, but feel free to give me whatever fandom. You can see the ones I've written on AO3, and I am also happy to write Skyfall Bond and any other fandoms you think I might know.

Ahaha, maaaybe? Or maybe I just want ALL THE HISTORICAL SPY TECHNIQUES and now I'm imagining James Bond meeting the Chevalier d'Eon or something lol. Looking forward to your take on it!

This. is. beautiful! I always love your historical fiction stuff! :D

For some reason I keep thinking that Robert Cecil may have written poetry (then again, lots of nobles did), or maybe I'm thinking of another Cecil. Hm...

I think this is my favorite part: It'll be fine, right? The Dutch are such nice people, they wouldn't pull out any teeth or anything while trying to pump this Spanish/English spy for information, right? They just have windmills and shit, and maybe wooden shoes? Well, yeah. But they also just had a revolution against their Spanish overlords. And they have a grudge. And they have pliers.

And I love how Q just keeps having ALL THE BAD THINGS happen to him for like no good reason other than he's in the middle of the spy network. XD

Actually, THIS is probably my favorite part because it's PERFECT: Bond is in the Tower first, for general bludgeoning etc, because he is a Scotsman in London and London was hella prejudiced then so Bond caved some skulls in the first time he got mocked.

can't you see it, Silva and M with dueling rapiers and the citizens of London scattering around them, I have an old dueling book that talks about using your cloak as a shield in your off-hand and M rips her overskirt and uses that instead, whipping it at Silva as she tries to cut his head off, and Silva kicks over an applecart and the apples roll across the street and people are tripping...


This entire thing is just perfection, I love it! :D :D
