Meme, again

The Hypothetical AU Meme: Take any one of the fandoms you know I write in, and give me a type of AU (space opera AU, pirate AU, superhero AU, Ancient Rome, etc). I will then explain what story from your chosen fandom I would write for your chosen type of AU.

xxxHOLiC; space pirates. Think Balthier's group from Final Fantasy XII, though I'm not sure you're familiar with it. Ignore it if you're not~

I'm completely FF-illiterate, sorry. ;P

But this scenario? Is awesome. Captain Yuuko, searching for treasure IN SPACE! With Mokona instead of the token cyborg-parrot. XD And Maru and Moro are adorable little piratey androids that keep the ship working. And, of course, she has the best rum IN THE HISTORY OF EVER.

Watanuki is your average nice kid who wants to be a sailor when he grows up and somehow ends up as a reluctant pirate instead, oops. He's totally in love with Himawari, who lives in a city that gets attacked suspiciously often even though there are no big treasures in sight.

I don't know about Doumeki. He's too silent to be a pirate... wait. His grandfather was a famous pirate! And now everyone expects him to be a pirate too and he's sort of "meh" about it. He just tags along in Yuuko's ship for the lulz (and Watanuki).

Clow was a Famous Legendary Captain, of course. Yuuko claims that they were rivals, but, well. ;P And the side characters are all aliens or pirates from other crews or ALIEN PIRATES. :DDD

Oooh, I like this one. In an era when everything's designed for functionality, a small group of misfits dedicate their lives to make things that LOOK PRETTY! :D Yukari finds them by accident and somehow they convince her to join them and start travelling around in their little spaceship, bringing JOY and SPARKLES and PRETTY to every planet! Arashi is a Han Solo kind of guy, and Minako is a pink-haired alien! Isabella is a genius engineer! George is a stunning robot designer! But he turns out to be too interested in the pretty and not in actual, y'know, people, so Yukari ends up with Hiro the pilot instead.
