okay, poll just for the heck of it. What's the next AU I should write?  
Or, well, not really. This poll also has an hidden purpose, but that's not the main point right now. The main point is that I realized I want to finish my AU bingo card, even if the FSM knows when I'll find time to write shit that isn't exchanges or my thesis or whatever (or writing one which won't be on the poll because I'm attempting to do it now). Anyway, I have some decently fleshed idea for some squares which are all Dean/Castiel, so I figured I'd make a poll and see how it goes. knowing myself, I'll end up writing the least voted one, but who knows.

So, under the cut you shall find some five/six shiny ticky boxes. Please choose three at most.

Poll #1631379 Next Dean/Cas AU of possibly epic proportions I should write?

Which of these sound more appealing? Don't lie.

Hooker fic, which would be loosely based on My Own Private Idaho; angst-ish, with a probably very long warnings list.
7(11.9%)
Regency: not based on anything but basically, THEY DEFY SOCIAL BARRIERS in 20000+ words; would probably be full of romance clichés and I'd write it just because they could have sex while watching live opera.
7(11.9%)
Band AU: set in the seventies where Dean is the musician and Castiel is the only groupie on this planet not interested in sex. [BTW: would turn up more serious than it sounds.]
12(20.3%)
Noir-ish: or, something where Castiel is a detective and I might steal quotes from The Big Sleep, except that plot = not really defined atm.
8(13.6%)
Western: or, I still don't know what I should steal from but they'd be dressed like Clint Eastwood in two different movies.
3(5.1%)
Mental health hospital: or, this'd actually be for hc_bingo, but anyway: the supernatural doesn't exist, both of them are human and everyone thinks they're crazy. Would have the longest warning list ever.
10(16.9%)
Post-Apocalypse 1: sort-of-sequel-ish to There Will Come Soft Rains because I have some more to say for that story but I never managed to write more of it.
7(11.9%)
Post-Apocalypse 2: fusion with The Stand. Or crossover with it, depends if I want just to keep Randall Flagg from it or not.
5(8.5%)

Yes, I know I'll take me centuries to write half of the ones above. WHATEVER. TICKY BOXES!

THEY HAVE A PROFOUND BOND.
22(36.1%)
You need to stop plotting shit before you write some of what's plotted already!
7(11.5%)
Can't you just use these for a thesis material?
7(11.5%)
... who cares, THEY HAVE A PROFOUND BOND.
13(21.3%)
TICKY!
12(19.7%)


Also, if anyone here knows anything about Regency era which is more than the close-to-nothing I do, would they hear my idea and tell me if it's doable? Because it's one which I'd really like to write. At some point.

Okay, I just want to see how this goes. Now brb I'll go studying and then posting some fic which I can't possibly still be editing. If I manage. *waves*

The only thing better than hooker!fic is hooker!fic based on one of my favourite films ever. Especially when you've got that twinky gay-cowboy photo session Jensen did, to use for inspiration/accompanying artwork. You know, the one where he looks exactly like the talking magazine covers in My Own Private Idaho.

Pleeeeeaaaaasssse?
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural dean/cas finale #1janie_tangerine on October 14th, 2010 04:33 pm (UTC)
That's actually the one I asked the table for. XD Or better, I asked for the table hoping that I'd get hooker fic so I could write that one, so do not despair, THAT one is definitely getting written before the deadline. Also because it's been in my head for ages and it's begging me to happen. ;) and OH GOD YES I KNOW THAT SESSION INDEED.
rock_chick_333: Hawt Sexxrock_chick_333 on October 14th, 2010 05:03 pm (UTC)
Jensen the Gay Cowboy

Right??? I can just see Dean in the River Phoenix role, the damaged tortured soul who feels too much for the wrong people, with Castiel playing the emotionally-distant spoilt rich boy running away from his family. IT'S PERFECT.

the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural + nick cave = otpjanie_tangerine on October 14th, 2010 05:30 pm (UTC)
.. LOL YES I REMEMBERED THE RIGHT ONE.

Anyway yeah. Someway I made the parallel and I was like WHAT THE FUCK DEAN IS SO RIVER PHOENIX IN THAT MOVIE AND CAS WOULD TOTALLY DO FOR KEANU REEVES even on a graphical level. I mean, hair color and stuff. Except that I'd plan on making Castiel way less of a dick than Scott was in the end. (Unless you think that he's the one in the car in the end but imo he still was a dick of major proportions.) Whatever. It will happen: XD
Giulia: Spn_Cas_PeopleSkillse0wyn on October 14th, 2010 04:37 pm (UTC)
Votato per la band AU, non ho mai letto una fic con queste premesse e mi intrigherebbe molto :D E poi per "ma non potresti usare questo come materiale per la tesi" perchè è quello che mi chiedo sempre io XD Scrivere la tesi non sarebbe poi così duro *lol*
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural dean/cas THEY HAVE A BONDjanie_tangerine on October 14th, 2010 04:43 pm (UTC)
Ad essere proprio sinceri non so neanche da dove mi sia venuta, ma la trama ce l'ho abbastanza chiara e pare che sia quella che va per la maggiore, quindi probabilmente salterà fuori sul presto XD e eeeeh, MAGARI. Potessi farci una tesi su ste cose. Quanto avrei già finito. ;)
Shonatoestastegood on October 14th, 2010 05:12 pm (UTC)
I don't ship Dean/Castiel, but I cannot resist polls so I voted anyway. :O

the female ghost of tom joad: casablancajanie_tangerine on October 14th, 2010 05:35 pm (UTC)
You can! Oh, but I will write it. Sometime. I just need to decide on the plot because atm my head is like:

'Just RIP IT OFF THE BIG SLEEP, book because the movie is too complicated';
'Buuut, idk, some of it, but THE REST WOULD BE TOO COMPLICATED'
'... damn maybe you're right. Just do it with the mafia.'
'But I can't have Cas with the trenchcoat!'

... and so on. Yes, I have mental conversation with myself while plotting fic, but I will figure that one out. XD
bold_seer: spn: castiel (blue)bold_seer on October 14th, 2010 05:26 pm (UTC)
1. Voted noir and western.
2. Realised that western has no trench coats.
3. Voted noir.
4. Realised I like western!fic (especially/at least) for SPN.
5. Voted noir and western...
the female ghost of tom joad: clint is BADASSjanie_tangerine on October 14th, 2010 05:33 pm (UTC)
Actually I was planning on dressing one of them like this. It kind of is a trenchcoat. XD (in the western one of course. Pity that apart from the clothing I kinda don't have an idea of the plot. Or well, okay, I have one but I need to think about it a lot more than most of the other ones listed.) XD
bold_seer: spn: castiel (rebel angel)bold_seer on October 14th, 2010 05:39 pm (UTC)
But clothes make the man angel, so that's clearly the most important part. :D
a geek in such the wrong way: B&S-who are those guys?haldoor on October 14th, 2010 05:56 pm (UTC)
Why didn't I vote for westerns too? I can't think, clearly. Although if you dress him like that... please tell me the female attachment isn't included? ;-P
a geek in such the wrong way: amusement-make it sohaldoor on October 14th, 2010 05:55 pm (UTC)
Pity I don't follow SPN, really. But I voted anyway cos hooker fic is always good.

Now, I do believe either your e-mail and my e-mail are not speaking, or else the world really doesn't want me to see your graphics. I don't want to believe the third choice, which is that you haven't e-mailed me at all... so I'm not going there. Perhaps you could just pm me to say whether there is anything for me to be hoping for, or otherwise, I'm trying something different by way of another e-mail address.

PLEASE WORK *prays to FSM*.

Try this e-mail: haldoor at netscape.net

I will REPLY AS SOON AS I GET SOMETHING and I'll be checking every couple of days so you will definitely hear. My other e--mail? I check it more than half a dozen times daily and there has definitely been nothing from you. I'm not blaming you, honestly, as clearly there's some issue getting e-mails through.

*hugs*
the female ghost of tom joad: tangerinesjanie_tangerine on October 18th, 2010 01:02 pm (UTC)
Auuugh, you do have another one? That's good because that other one apparently doesn't work. (or it might be mine, since something like that is going on with my thesis supervisor and it took us four different addresses to get a mail through. Whatever.)

Anyway, I'll use that other one and send stuff your way asap, if I don't before three/four days it's because with the extra exam I'm doing I am not looking at e-mails other than LJ notifications. *sigh* But I'm giving that on Friday so if I can't manage before then I'll just send you a mail at both those addresses on Sat. and let's see if we can manage it. *kicks the net* <3
a geek in such the wrong way: csi-greg-magichaldoor on October 25th, 2010 06:46 am (UTC)
Hi love - sorry to bug you again, but I still haven't received any e-mail from you, so not sure if you've just been too busy this weekend or if it hasn't come through. Could you try again if you have sent it, or maybe you could just do a private LJ post just for me with any graphics you've managed to do? I'm sorry, but I'm kinda getting to the point of thinking I should just give up... so can you let me know? (I'm a bit behind on flist so sorry if there's already something up that I should know about)
Daisy Drostezoemathemata on October 14th, 2010 06:31 pm (UTC)
Am I the only one that voted for Regency?
Could it be because I used to be addicted to historical romance?

I just read an SGA fic set in regency too, and I loved it. The balls, the society, the gossip and the DANGER OF BEING FOUND OUT.
IDK, secret love is sexy.

Plus there would be the added bonus of them each trying to figure out if the they mean what they think they mean [lol, bad sentence is BAD].

I wouldn't say I know anything official about regency, but I would be willing to take a look at your idea. Er, all I have for credentials is I've read a metric ton of historical romance.
the female ghost of tom joad: tangerinesjanie_tangerine on October 14th, 2010 06:39 pm (UTC)
Fear not, Regency WILL get written because I kinda never managed to write a fic where I could put together a bunch of romance clichés and the plot I have for this one is kind of my secret dream, AND IT GIVES ME A CHANCE TO HAVE THEM MAKING OUT WHILE WATCHING OPERA. Yes, that's where my brain goes. Anyway YES IT WOULD HAVE BALLS, SOCIETY, GOSSIP AND DANGER AND DRAMA and I want to write it.

And oh, I totally got that sentence. It'd totally sum up the entire first third of the whole thing.

And there's most definitely more than my credentials, because the most I've read of historical romance was Wuthering Heights and that's not what I'm going for here so it'd be awesome if you could have a look at it? Would you rather do it by mail or I can just PM you? Your preferences are my preferences. ;)
Daisy Drostezoemathemata on October 14th, 2010 06:43 pm (UTC)
ZOMG, opera!
Plus the idea of them in those historical outfits is hawt.

Send me what you have, I'd love to take a look. my email addy is

zoemathemata@live.ca

I can accept MSWord, rtf, or mac pages.

:)

the female ghost of tom joad: !!! <3janie_tangerine on October 14th, 2010 06:49 pm (UTC)
IT'D BE SO HOT Y/Y?

Yaaay, awesome! Atm I just have the plot and no writing, but I just wanted to be sure it was historically doable before starting so I'll just send you an e-mail with the most of the premise and some of the rest. Also because I think that if the premise is doable then the rest should be too but whatever, I'll save it for the actual mail. *goes*

sevvy23: canon errorsevvy23 on October 14th, 2010 08:05 pm (UTC)
just so you know, it was really hard to choose between these ideas, cause i wanna read all of them!!! But i've been dreaming of a band au for ages, so... anyway i'm sure whatever you end up writing will be awsome :)
And about Post-Apocalypse 2, i think Dean and Larry Underwood would hit it off famously, but maybe that's just coz i love them both so much...
the female ghost of tom joad: dark tower eddie has the best quotesjanie_tangerine on October 14th, 2010 08:19 pm (UTC)
And I want to write all of them, so.. XDD but the band AU is coming soon-ish I guess, since it's apparently the one everyone wants. XD

And EHEHHEHE I KINDA WANTED TO GO THERE AND MAKE THEM MEET. They'd hit off almost as well as Dean and Eddie would. WELL WHAT A SURPRISE Larry is actually my second-favorite King character ever. I think I choose them with PATTERNS.
sevvy23: johnny cash DTsevvy23 on October 14th, 2010 09:00 pm (UTC)
LOL, so do i, obviously!! And yeah Larry is just wonderful, i'm crazy about him :)
plus his song kinda is about Dean, don't you think?
"Baby can you dig your man? He's a RIGHTEOUS man..." XD

oh yes he so is. I was so head over heels about him the first time I read The Stand. Then I re-read it a bunch of times and every time I was like 'Christ CAN I MARRY YOU'. And HAHAHAHAHAH YES BABY CAN YOU DIG YOUR MAN IS SO DEAN'S SONG! XDDDDD

Buahaha ticky boxes are tempting, aren't they? ;)

But hooker fic yeaaaah, that iiissss happening. As soon as I finish this other one I started for the sports square which is like insane but it has been eating my head as much as the hooker fic, except that it's the one with the least chances to get over 10000 words so I'm tackling that first. And western is happening as soon as I have a better plot than 'smish all the Eastwood Leone movies together'. Or we,, if I don't have a better one by the time I get to it, that's happening anyway. XD
ozmissage: SPN. Cas. Angel.ozmissage on October 15th, 2010 04:02 am (UTC)
I voted Noir because that just sounds EPIC. :D

(Western sounds awesome too. I finished watching Deadwood at roughly the same time I started watching SPN and I may or may not have imagined an AU where the Earp brothers were actually hunters. Okay, I totally did.)
the female ghost of tom joad: deadwood otpjanie_tangerine on October 15th, 2010 07:22 am (UTC)
Lol in my head it sounds epic too but I sadly can't steal from just a place, so I need to come up with a more decent plot.

(also one of my ideas was doing a sort-of-Deadwood-AU with SPN people as well except that I realized that in order to match the ships in my head Cas had to be Sol and Dean had to be Trixie and I already have hooker fic to write and it was going to be too much for poor Dean. Or that they should have been Jane and Joanie which ANYWAY MEANT MORE HOOKERS XD Also it meant being way-too-long. BUT THE EARP BROTHERS = HUNTERS = BEST IDEA EVEEER.)

REGENCY IS GETTING WRITTEN DO NOT FEAR. I HAD AN INTERESTING TALK THAT MADE ME SURE THAT MY PLOT ISN'T TOTALLY IMPLAUSIBLE HISTORICALLY SO WAIT FOR IT BECAUSE SINCE IT'S BEEN IN MY HEAD FOR MONTHS THE DAY I SIT DOWN TO WRITE IT IT WON'T TAKE ME MUCH.

AND HEE YES HOOKERS. AND OH GOD LOL I WILL MANAGE TO WRITE THEM ALL AND OMGYES PROFOUND BOUUUUNDDD.

(Also I'm surprised at how much the mental hospital is scoring. THAT'D BE LIKE THE MOST DEPRESSING THING EVER but then again it was one of the five squares on my card which had made me go \o/ so that's gonna happen too. XD)
lexhibition on October 15th, 2010 06:09 am (UTC)
NOOOOIIIIIRRRRRR Trenchcoat + FEDORA hells yeah.

Although all your ideas sound interesting! I didn't vote for Regency because it sounds like you're already doing that one but if you need any help with it I went through this phase where I called myself Miss Lexie and wore empire waist dresses every day and so I have like a million books on the period.
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural castiel holy tax accountantjanie_tangerine on October 15th, 2010 07:29 am (UTC)
HELL I FORGOT THE FEDORA ON THE DESCRIPTION BUT YEAH THAT WAS GONNA HAPPEN TOO.

(Now it sounds like I'm also writing a watchmen AU but uhm, maybe not.)

Regency is getting done at some point because it has been eating my head since like July or something (I procrastinate on writing too, apparently) and AHA, that's VERY interesting. I might need help when I actually get down to it, which will happen soon-ish anyway, so thanks for offering! ;)
