It goes without saying that I know I'll love what you write, so good luck!

General Stuff:

Stories don’t need to be super sappy and sugary/fluffy, but please don’t get all grim and dark. Bittersweet can work if there are hopeful tinges.

I like humor, and I don't think I do a good job of writing it - sparkling snappy dialogue always works!

I generally prefer het or gen. I'm good with explicit sex, but I am not really into any kinks.

I'm a fan of AU, but prefer canon-divergence or "what-if" scenarios, rather than "all the characters are at boarding school together" types (Unless they ARE all at boarding school together...)

Stories where problems are solved by feminine insight/intuition rock!

If you know more than one of the requested fandoms, I love crossovers. But only if you like to write them!

I love urban legends - the vanishing hitchhiker in particular.

I also have a fascination for unsolved crimes/mysteries, people who've disappeared, and bodies with no names.

Please no explicit violence/gore (nothing higher than what already exists in a canon) and no graphic sexual violence. I'd also prefer you avoid major (i.e. nominated) character death. Also please no animal violence/cruelty.

1. The Westing Game
Sybil Pulaski

Sydelle Pulaski was the mistake, but I want to know about Sybil - what did she know? Where is she now? How would the book be different if the mistake hadn't been made?

I love the Westing Game, ever since I read the blurb on the back about the people who live in the building. So tell me about Sybil Pulaski, who was omitted by mistake. Is she somehow related to Sydelle? How would things be different if she had been there all along?

2. Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light
Relationship: Cryotek/Galadria, Ectar

So not sure where their individual tags went, but I love Cryotek/Galadria, and I just want more. I also love how Ectar is super cynical, so please include him. Maybe the 3 go on a quest together?

I love these two in their relationship and I just want more. I love Cryotek, Galadria, and their relationship (and how the girl isn't with the leader-hero). Feel free to throw in cynical Ectar.

3. And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie (play)
Philip Lombard, Vera Claythorne, Emily Brent, Relationship: Philip Lombard & Vera Claythorne

I love the play, especially the dry dialogue and not everyone dying.
What if one of these three is Mr (or Mrs.) Owen?

I love this book/play/movie in many of its incarnations. The text of the play is always fun. I especially love the confrontations between Emily and Vera:

EMILY. I should have thought you might feel a little uncomfortable in that dress. VERA. (Not taking the point) Oh, no.
EMILY. (Nastily) It’s rather tight, isn’t it?
VERA. (Good-humoured) Oh, I don’t think so.

This one is also good:

VERA. (Rises, flaring up) A drink! Two corpses in the house at nine o’clock in the morning and all you say is “Have a drink!” An old man going quite crackers—“Have a drink!” Ten people accused of murder—that’s all right—just have a drink. Everything’s fine so long as you have a drink.
LOMBARD. All right. All right.—Stay thirsty.

I like the idea that one or more of these people might be Mr. Owen or Miss Owen, or Mr. and Mrs. Owen. You can pull Blore in as well if you like. I'm totally down for Vera and Philip being Mr. and Mrs. O, or for Emily Brent being a mastermind (mistress-mind?).
