Thank cod for Ikea. Some people go there with their kids to park the latter in the free creche in order to have some time off. Others go there with their mothers to fill the time *haha*. Well, actually, I did *not* leave my mum in the creche. But including bus rides we were busy for five hours yesterday, hooray. I bought some stuff, but it was all small fry, from some fake flowers to a couple of desk lamps. Today is going to be another wet day. I’ll have to think of something to pass the time if I want to avoid cabin fever… But now on to another fan challenge question…
W – A prompt or AU for a piece of fan fiction?
Where to start? I mean, we could just begin with yesterdays throwaway remark in my strikethroughs. The piece of lint on Richard’s zipper. My imagination – and yours – knows no bounds. There are a hundred million ways Richard and his chaRActers could be pictured in a fan fiction context. And a lot of fan needs have already been met by fan writers in the past. But for the purpose of *this* fan challenge at *this* particular time, I’ll say this: My prompt for each and every fan fic writer is any chaRActer death. Or rather the opposite. And in particular the latest such death that occurred and that I would like to have reversed.
Daniel Miller: After Hector has been shot dead while rescuing Daniel in the Estonian forest, Daniel continues on his own and stumbles into the green dacha. He opens the door – and finds Esther Krug waiting for him. With a smile and open arms. Continue…
Francis Dolarhyde: In the final showdown with Will and Hannibal, the ‘murder husbands’ have actually not killed Francis but the Red Dragon. As Will and Hannibal tumble over the cliff edge, Francis slowly awakens and finds himself free. Continue…
Raymond de Merville: Chastised by the religious valour of The Mute, Raymond decides to down all weapons. To exorcise his own demons, he leaves his father, his family and his legacy. Disguised as a mute friar, Raymond wanders through Normandy, looking for salvation. One hot summer’s day, as he has taken off his robes and is refreshing himself with a dip in the nip in a small pond, a local woman spots him (and the horrible war scars he carries with him on his back) while splashing in the waters. Continue…
I’ll leave it at these three. I am sure these will not be picked up by any fan fic writer, anyway. I’d have to do it myself. Have you got any prompts you’d like to see written up?
PS: Upon request, the marble cake recipe:
4 or 5 eggs
3 tbsp cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
Start by combining all ingredients except the cocoa. Once smooth, place one half of the batter into a greased cake tin. Add the cocoa to the remaining half of the batter and combine until smooth. Place on top of the other half of the batter in the tin. Mix in order to create the marble effect. Bake for 45 minutes at 190 degrees. Dust with icing sugar.
