oops

I have succumbed to the allure of a trope bingo card.



wingfic fork in the road virginfic au: romance novel poor communication skills
mind control hurt / comfort time travel futurefic indecent proposal
bets / wagers snowed in FREE

SPACE
curtainfic rites of passage / coming of age
soul bonding / soulmates au: alternate professions au: space holidayfic telepathy / mindmeld
bodyswap handcuffed / bound together deathfic language and translation first time / last time



Somehow I'm not sure I need pushing to write more wingfic, but everyone should come try to convince me to write things/discuss my options!

yesss trope bingo!

handcuffed together is always a winner in my book.
I like how I got "poor communication skills" because that could apply to every single wip I'm already writing!

Handcuffed together is definitely super fun! Setting it up is difficult though. Or, well, not the set up exactly because there's always ridiculous prank reasons to fall back on, but the part where the people involved don't just get a hacksaw and move on. Doable, totally, I just have to think about it quite hard for my current fandoms...
They're in a hotel room and don't have access to a hacksaw? On the team plane, especially no access to a hacksaw?
NEVER TOO MUCH WINGFIC

But ooooh, you have some good ones! Holidayfic! Alternate professions! SNOWED IN. OMG VIRGINFIC. \o/
WHO WOULD I EVEN GIVE WINGS NOW? EVERYONE HAS HAD WINGS ALREADY.

Haha, snowed in seems super appropriate right now, what with the Canes being top in games cancelled due to weather . Idk what to do with that exactly, but I'm sure they need SOMETHING to do tonight, right? :D?
I'M SURE THAT IS UNTRUE you haven't had time to give Seth Jones wings yet.

YES! YESSSSS. Thank you, real life, how convenient. \o/
Ahahaha, I'd have to wait for that one, I think, my head is too full of our Seth, and we're probably too many thousand words into that fic to add magical realism. (Imagine Shea's face if after thousands of words of realistic angst, Seth suddenly has actual magical powers too. Dying.)
IF IT HELPS, IT IS SNOWING IN NORTH CAROLINA RIGHT NOW.

I mean snowed in here means like a layer of ice on the roads but still.
\o/

I think they were in Philly anyway, but yeah, this will, if I write it, probably be less actual literal snowed in and more people using the idea of being snowed in as a pickup line. SO MUCH COMPLAINING ABOUT BEING FROM FURTHER NORTH THAN THIS, THIS IS NOTHING. :DDD
I want to steal your card too. Bodyswap! Language and translation! Alternate professions! Some of these are awesome. :D
It's pretty good! I keep being pleasantly surprised every time I come back to it; I think I keep mentally confusing it with everyone else's (which are also excellent, I just keep forgetting which tropes are mine and which ones I just envy.)

There are so many good fics I already want about language and translation, so that should be a good one, though I still worry about my ability to write ESL dialogue... :/

I can't believe I've never written bodyswap before, that is one of the absolute CLASSICS.

Oh god, that might be the hardest part about writing sports fic, imo. At least for me. I always immerse myself in so much research that I usually end up psyching myself out of writing. But it's also fun though, so... /rambles on

I can't believe I've never written bodyswap before, that is one of the absolute CLASSICS.

This trope would work for so many pairings too!
And it's so hard because the guys with the worst English are generally the least willing to talk on camera so you can't watch hours of footage and try to piece it together. :/

Bodyswap works for ALL pairings. No exceptions. (I was going to say not twins, but now I think about it, I kind of want that fic where some set of twins have switched and it's even harder than usual for them to get other people to believe them because no one else can see the differences, but they're really sure about this, guys!!)
