I had to withdraw from 1upona_sabriel
-- I tried three different plotlines and I couldn't keep it in character and
manage the required happy ending.
On the other hand, I have a cracking idea for sncross_bigbang
, if you don't mind blasphemy fic. A Dresden Files xover, which is why if anyone with knowledge of Chicago would be willing to answer questions and beta the location details, I'd be very grateful. I'm also looking for an alpha-reader who I could talk over my idea and its progress once or twice a week. I find it immensely helpful to work out the details with someone who can point out that I'm going off the rails before I've written 5000 words of stuff that I'll have to cut anyway.
Currently, the characters I know will be in it will be Harry Dresden, Kali (as the femme fatale, natch), Sam, Dean, Castiel, Gabriel, probably Sanya (if I can figure out where), Ms Gard, at least a few of the Fae, and probably a slew of Norse mythological characters. Also, the swords Tyrfing (cursed by its makers the dwarves Dvalinn and Durin to kill whenever it was drawn and to bring about three great evils) and Mistelteinn (never goes blunt, taken from the undead witch-king Thrain, possibly used by Hod in his duel with Baldr -- if you're going by the Gesta Danorum, not the Eddas) are going to show up, and possibly Dainsleif (made by the dwarf Dain, always kills when drawn and makes wounds that never heal) and Lævateinn (if I can decide what the hell it actually is
Basically my northern heathenism-influenced subconsciousness wants to play around with SPN and Dresden Files, and I will probably wind up writing a novel-length story to do it.
