laurus_nobilis: (Crossover time!)
I've started watching the new My Little Pony cartoon a few weeks ago and, while I find it fun and very very cute (and full of positive and varied female role models!), I didn't really have anything to say about it here on LJ.

But today I saw the episode with that Sonic Rainboom thing and... well. I just have to ask.

Please tell me there's fanart of rainbow-making Thundercracker out there. Please.

Give me TWO fandoms; I'll tell you about their crossover OTP.

Soooo it's been a while since I had one of those silly dreams with random fictional characters. Apparently my brain decided to compensate for all that lost time last night. o.O

I don't remember details (which is a pity, because I'm pretty sure the dream had a plot and everything), but the gist of the issue? The G1 versions of Starscream, Soundwave and Shockwave tried to take over Sumdac Tower. Sari was around, but not the Autobots - but that's okay! Because Megamind and Roxanne saved the day!

... yeeeeah I don't even know. The only other thing I remember is that it involved SCIENCE!!1! and weird inventions on all sides, so at least they were IC, I guess. |D

Oh well. Crossovers aside, it's still less ridiculous than some canon G1 plots, anyway. :P (Hey guys, let's TAKE OVER NEW YORK and make some BATTLE TAXIS and rebuild Prime into a SEWER ALLIGATOR!)

So. Yeah. I don't know if my subconscious is trying to tell me "STOP WITH THE CROSSOVERS ALREADY" or "WRITE MOAR". >.>

Surprise, surprise. XD Anyway:

If you want to do the meme, leave a comment and I'll give you a colour that I think represents you / makes me think of you, and then you list ten things you like in that colour!

[ profile] kalligeneia gave me jade green and [ profile] sha_chan gave me... uh, "amarillo patito". Duck yellow? Does that even exist in English?

Well, you guys got really specific but I didn't work too hard on finding the exact shade. So there. :P

cut for images )

And the other meme: Give me TWO fandoms; I'll tell you about their crossover OTP.

From [ profile] kalligeneia:

Give me a pairing or character(s) from any fandom you know I'm familiar with, and I'll write you a few lines about them AT HOGWARTS!

Giant space robots will be properly humanized. :P I might be slow to answer, but I will, I promise.

But I tweaked it a bit. See, the original version goes like this:

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing for battle. Second two people; second pairing for battle. Etc. Then write your reaction to each battle.

But when I saw the combinations I got, I realized that most of them wouldn't fight at all. And "who would win in a hypothetical fight even if it'd be OOC" isn't nearly as fun "what would happen if they met". So that's what I'm doing instead. =D (Also, I left out a few people I don't really know too well that came in animated icons with tons of characters.)

... why yes, it did give me a ton of plot bunnies.

It's insanely long )
laurus_nobilis: (Star/Sky - to boldly go)
But I can't turn off my brain. :P

Anyway. One of the things I did during the past few weeks, while I was on vacation, was watch a whole lot of TNG. Everyone knows that Transformers is currently one of my main fandoms. And I don't need to say I love crossovers, do I? So I couldn't help but think that, well, since Starscream and Skyfire's job back in the good old days involved a lot of exploring strange new worlds and boldly going where no bot has gone before, a Star Trek crossover would be really neat.

But I was safe from the bunnies, right? Because I might have crazy ideas, but I'm still nitpicky. Star Trek is set in the future. Those two were travelling millions of years in the past. So for a few days, I was relieved!

And then I stopped to think and realized:

1. G1 has canon time travel, both the "on purpose" and the "totally random" varieties.
2. Star Trek is full of time travel, random alternate timelines, and other timey wimey stuff.
3. When all else fails, Q.

... so yeah I might have to write this now. When I clean off my current plot bunny list a bit. And I have to decide if it'd be TOS or TNG - Scotty or Data, that is the question. XD

Seriously. I don't need any more bunnies, especially the kind that threaten to be long. But.

"Any signs of life forms?"
"The ship is the life form, Captain."

I am the nerdiest nerd that has ever lived, yes, I know.

This is one of my favourite:

Come up with the craziest theory you can think of for any of my fandoms (ridiculous crossover theories a bonus) I know about, and I will explain why it makes perfect sense and is in fact probably true.

I promise I won't answer every single one with "Q did it" or variations of "It's Clow's/the Doctor's/Starscream's fault". :P

I know, I know, unfair comparison there. One of those guys didn't break time and space~~
laurus_nobilis: (Prime is everyone's dad)
So, [ profile] stunt_muppet posted a great theory about where Optimus's trailer goes when it disappears (it involves a TARDIS). And that reminded me of something that I'd been meaning to post for a while, but I didn't have the proper screencaps until now.

Today in Laurus's Crazy Crossover Theories: G1!Cybertron had some kind of contact with Gallifrey during the Great War.

Why do I think so? Scale issues.

We have characters like Omega Supreme and Skyfire, who are bigger than the average bot, because they're supposed to be able to carry others. Sure, there are still a lot of crazy scale problems, because this is Transformers and it's not like the animators were really paying attention. But at least it's made clear that they are supposed to be large enough to function as transport.

In a wonderful case of "I can't believe this fits in with my nonsense", we know for a fact that both of them were already around during the Golden Age. Old models, perhaps. Because we also get to see bots like these:

cut for screencaps )

See? Definitely bigger on the inside. And let's not even start on the hammerspace wonder that is Soundwave. I BLAME GALLIFREY.

... also I kind of ship Cosmos/TARDIS now.

Sooo... there are a lot of things I should be writing. A lot. And at least two of them have a deadline.

But then this came up in a meme, and, well. You can guess where this is going:

Five Times Starscream and Skyfire Came Home to Write Really Weird Papers

... there is no return.

(And yes, that does mean five different crossovers, why would you even ask? :P)
laurus_nobilis: (Plot bunny)
Post an excerpt from as many random works-in-progress as you can find lying around. Who knows? Maybe inspiration will burst forth and do something, um, inspiration-y.

The amount of crossovers was to be expected, but... wow, there are a lot of giant robots here. XD (Also: seriously, Starscream, you need to shut up o.O)

Ouran - That postcanon Nekozawa/Renge thing I never finished )

Transformers: Animated/Harry Potter - The humanized AU in Hogwarts )

Transformers: Animated/Whoverse - In which Optimus and the Doctor work together, and Starscream and Jack die a lot )

Transformers G1/Piratas del Caribe - Starscream y Barbossa, BFFs inmortales )

Transformers G1/Whoverse - Doctor!Optimus y Master!Megatron vs. la 'ciencia' de sus subordinados )
laurus_nobilis: (Prime is everyone's dad)
Una vez [ profile] solesakuma me dijo, en broma, "Megatron es la próxima Regeneración del Master".

Yo le respondí, también en broma, "Bueno, Megatron es de los dos o tres que reviven misteriosamente... y en la original "regenera" en Galvatron..."

Y con el tiempo, esa semillita germinó y creció se transformó en esto.


I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.

(Y prometo que también voy a escribir algo de humor en ese AU, que en realidad ésa era la idea.)
laurus_nobilis: (Optimus's #1 fan)
So, yesterday [ profile] drachenaugen and I went to see Return of the Fallen, and since it was the second time we noticed a lot more details (mostly of the "this doesn't make any sense" kind, but oh well). Anyway. The thing is, I promised (threatened?) a big plotbunny post today.

And here it goes. =D Yes, they are all crossovers.

vaguely spoilery movie-related bunnies )

* * *

And since I'm talking about bunnies. Some other non-Movie!verse crossovers I don't want to lose.

no spoilers for anything here )

* * *

Aaaand the last thing. Which isn't exactly a plot bunny, more like a weird... reasoning. Thing. With spoilers for RotF and Star Trek XI. (And for Star Trek II and III? Do those still count as spoilers?)

I wonder how many of you already know where this is going )
laurus_nobilis: (Plot bunny)
It's time to fix that. :D So, I present you:

Crossover Ideas That Are Now Part Of My Headcanon

* Clow went to Hogwarts, blah blah blah, you've heard it a million times. The interesting thing about this one is that opens the way for many, many other CCS/HP details. My crazy ideas change all the time, but there are a few things I do consider headcanon now:
-- He was a good friend of Dumbledore, who he met through Nicolas Flamel.
-- The magic he used to split his soul was a non-evil variation of the spell used to create a Horcrux.
-- About half of the Hall of Prophecy is his fault. The Department of Mysteries finds it incredibly annoying, but it's not as if he can do anything about it.

* The Time Lords and the Q are constantly at odds with each other, because both species think they're the best thing that ever happened to the universe. The Doctor and the specific Q we know and love have a friendly rivalry going on since they can remember. (Yes, I know Star Trek is fiction in the Whoverse, but that doesn't mean the Q can't be real! They're above such things, really.)

* One of the Doctor's many, many enemies put him into a Total Perspective Vortex once. Legend has it that his first words as he left it were "Why, yes, I really am that awesome."

* Yuuko and the Doctor are old friends. But I won't have more details on this one until HOLiC is over, I think.

* Nanny Ogg taught Yuuko all she knows. Including, of course, certain drinking songs that wizards aren't particularly fond of. She taught them to the Mokonas in turn. Clow twitched. A lot.

* Howl regularly visits the Discworld, specifically the Unseen University. He even has a honorary degree there. He lives in fear of the inevitable day when Sophie will meet Granny Weatherwax.

* The Nekozawa family does have magic; the Russian side of the family always went to Durmstrang, in fact. Umehito is a Squib, the light thing actually is an old family curse, and Beelzenef carries a ton of protective charms. (Which, oddly enough, means that Tamaki isn't all that wrong about it.)

* There is a Denny Crane in the Ace Attorney universe. You know it makes sense.

ETA: The four theories I got so far can be explained with, to put it in [ profile] allira_dream's words, CLOW = BEHIND EVERYTHING EVER. Which might say a lot about me, but it also says a lot about my flist. XD
