Not as intended


You know exactly what to expect: out there, in that big wide word, is the person who's just for you. A soulmate, maybe. A destined lover. The story's always the same. The princess falls for the prince, her knight and shining armor. The heroes will grow to love one another. Happily ever after.

Except, somehow, a chapter from another book got put into your tale.

You have the one you know you should be with, or you know where or who they are...yet somehow, somewhere, your heart got stolen by another. A heroic soul loves a bandit. Snow White is charmed by a dwarf instead of good-looking royalty.

So maybe you do have a choice. Will you follow your script and be with who the fates intend, or take a chance and go where your own desires lead?

— basically, with all the ~destined~ couples and SOULMATES4lyfe memes floating around out there, I wanted to do a #teamfreewill fuck destiny!!1 one.
— comment with your character, canon, prefs, etc.
— reply to others.

[ Girl who looks like she should fall for the prince (and does in canon) falling for someone decidedly unprincely (or, at least, not traditionally prince charming-ish)? My shiiiiit tbh.

I love assumed CR, crossovers (♥ ♥ ♥), convoluted scenarios, combustive attraction, bickering, culture differences, ingenue/gruff, worldly man, wrong places and wrong times, inhuman characters, Beauty and the Beast dynamics because duh, arranged marriage AU, fairy tale/fantasy settings, magic, passionate reunions, emotions spilling out in private, and much, much more.

Ridiculously into Tolkienverse (dwarves yes pls), ASOIAF/GOT, and MCU right now and equally into AUing Belle to fit in any of them, but check out my slightly embarrassing dream list of shit I'd like to play. ]

[Interested in doing something with a certain firecracker? Could be a Jubes from one of the many realities Blink has hopped; could be the AoA Jubes from before Blink left the Age of Apocalypse. Could be something else if you're interested in brainstorming.]

[I'd love to! I'll confess, I have a weakness for these two because of a fanfic, so if you do vampire Jubes, I'm extra game]

[Fanfic?! There's a fanfic? Link, please?

I was beginning to think I was the only one who had a weakness for Blink/Jubilee. I never tried playing vampire Jubes, though. Hope that's not a deal-breaker.]

[better than bubblegum
it's not a deal breaker at all. I'm down for anything. How about Clarice showing up at the school, and there being a sort of "let me look after you slash show you around" connection]

[That. Fic. Is. Amazing. It's everything I like about those two as a pairing.

Here's a Blink/Jubes storyline I RPed with another player years ago (I played Blink to her Jubilee). The story took place in mid-'90s continuity and had Blink teleport to the 616 Universe after the end of AoA. Jubilee ended up being Clarice's guide and lifeline through massive culture shock. Fair warning: it's long.

So, should this be modern continuity in which Jubes is a twenty something momma? Exiles!Blink shows up for some reason, and Jubilee chaperones her? Or were you thinking of a different canon point or made-up AU? Stop me if I'm overthinking, lol.]

[Perhaps she shows up after something horrible happens with the Exiles mission, and she's injured (cause I'm a sucker for hurt comfort). And Jubilee gets to be her chaperone/guide/helper in getting around the manison, and figuring out this version of reality]

Crises at the Jean Grey School (and Xavier's School before that) happened fairly often. Stuff would appear suddenly, cause lots of damage, and at least someone would be ushered to the infirmary to be healed by Shi'Ar technology.

This time, the figure that appeared was familiar-looking. Jubilee would recognize that purple skin and those awesome facial markings anywhere. The hair and body were different from the Clarice she was familiar with (the kid who sacrificed herself to save her and Generation X, and who appeared years later in a New Mutants grouping). But Jubes was so used to clones and alternate-reality doubles that she barely ... well, blinked. The woman was injured, she needed healing, and if she turned out to be evil, she and the X-Men would deal with that evil.

Three days of bed rest followed, and Jubilee still wasn't sure whether or not this new Blink was evil. To be fair, she'd only been conscious for maybe a few minutes total that entire time. So now Jubes poked her head into the infirmary, Shogo in her arms, to see how Deep Purple Sleeping Beauty was doing. Plot twist: she was awake. "Oh, uh... yo."

Buffy tends to get in star-crossed or just plain awkward romances in canon, so why not here? She's a badass demon slayer who's a real softie, with a fun turn of phrase and a nonchalant demeanor in the face of evil.

Will do crosscanon CR, canon CR, assumed CR, m/f and f/f, messed-up or nurturing characters, bickering, antagonistic tension, nonhumans, AU settings (especially fantasy/fairytales), AUing Buffy into your universe or the other way around, not-in-a-relationship-but-act-like-we-are, uncomfortable timing! That's just to give an idea; please feel free to suggest something not on the list!
