here are all the Cherik and Destiel prompts I came up with and never wrote. HAVE AT THEM.
1) ERIK WORKS IN A JUNKYARD.
2) charles should meet erik at like. a con. but erik’s not there for the con con, he’s there for the other seminar that’s taking over the second half of the convention. and like. charles is outside in costume or laden with con swag, waiting for raven to swing by with their car so they can drop shit off at the hotel or whatevs. erik is smoking outside, looking generally uncomfortable around
all these faggots in costume
so then charles is like ‘oh my god he looks like my fantasy watson.’ and goes and does the general un-nerd thing and is like ‘I don’t suppose you’re here for the convention, are you?’ and erik just looks at him and is like ‘do I look like I’m here for the convention?’
and charles suddenly feels very awkward in his stuffy sherlock costume. so then he laughs awkwardly and unbuttons the jacket. “I wasn’t trying to be rude, my friend. Merely making an observation.”
“You do realize that its bad enough you’re in costume, you don’t have to talk like you’re an idiot as well.”
and charles gets a little uppity and flustered and is like
“Just so you know, this is how I really talk.” and Erik looks a bit chastised and mutters a halfhearted apology with “I’m a little out of my element here, sorry.
Erik is apparently there for the business seminar going on in the other half of the convention center.
Raven is Charles’ sister who’s not as big of a fandomfaggot as Charles, but she’s an amazingly popular cosplayer who’s known for being able to immerse herself into multiple characters.
hank’s a coworker who charles may have dragged into con/nerd faggotry just a bit (well. Hank was always a nerd, Charles just nurtured it)
and alex is hank’s boyfriend who thinks conventions are fucking stupid but hey look at all the hot babes in video game outfits
hank don’t be jealous. you have so many chicks hanging off of you because they think you’re a sexy dr. who or whatever you are.
and alex teases him incessantly for it
until Hank grabs him and kisses him in a huge crowd full of fangirls. and invokes the wrath of the screaming fangirl.
so Charles is chilling and talking to erik. and people asking to take his picture. some for his costume and some because they recognize him as raven’s brother, who does photoshoots wth her sometimes. and then he says ‘if you’ll wait a few moments, my sister will be by with the car. She’s dressed as Lady (whatever the fuck her name is) and I’m sure she wouldn’t mind a few pictures
before we headed back to our hotel for a bit.’
and erik is just like ‘what the fuck is going on.’
cause charles feels all popular
and erik is just like ‘I’M SURROUNDED BY NERRRRRRDS. FFFFF’
And Charles calmly explains that his sister is rather well known because of her amazing costuming skills and acting abilities.
And that by extension he gets some recognition from the fan base as well as some from his….writings.
and Erik’s just like ‘so you’re a published author?’
“well, not yet. I’m getting there. I’m only published on the internet at the moment.”
Maybe he’s gotten a short story into a community college publication and hasn’t had much luck since aside from fanfiction
and like. everything charles says to make himself not sound like a nerd
makes him sound like a nerd
and by the time raven gets there, charles is very frustrated and flustered, and erik just laughs and is like ‘I have a feeling that you’re trying to make yourself seem less of a nerd than what you are. Its kind of cute, but don’t hide who you are. I’ll still give you my number.”
as raven gets out of the car, charles drops like. all of his con swag and everything to find ap iece of paper
When he realizes he has a small notepad in his breast pocket as part of his outfit. or erik just grabs charles’ phone from where he put it in his pocket after using it to call raven, and puts his number in it
and raven’s like ‘OMG OMG WHAT.’ but doesn’t say anything. and so she and charles pose for pictures (they apologize, but currenly do not have a watson available) while erik writes his contact info down
he gets home from the con, after texting erik the rest of saturday, meeting him for coffee on sunday, and texting him all day
and the first thing he does after dropping all of his shit in his room and taking a shower
is to grab catston and snuggle him and blather on about erik into catston’s belly
And after he’s done blathering he pitches a variety of pick up lines and story ideas as they come
lmao he hella tumbles about it and writes a short fic (with the circumstances changed)
And he gets feedback on the fic and gets huffy when someone describes his Sherlock as too OOC. He then proceeds to rant about this to Catston who was about to nap
well he goes out of his room to rant to hank but hank and alex are making out on the couch
so he’s just like ‘ok fine. that’s fine. whatever. come on catston.’ *picks up catston and brings him into his room*
and then he plays like. 8 year old PC games to amuse himself
He’s playing Portal for the fifth time on pc
at one point catston needs to be a fat bitch and rub charles’ hands and layon his keyboard
so sometimes catston gets affectionate. the few tmes charles doesn’t want to be. like when he’s pwning at portal
I can just see like. charles doing what I do to get the cat to leave him alone
and just lying on his back and playing dead until the cat realizes that he’s not going to pet him
He totally needs to have tf2 parties with Hank as his pocket medic.
charles is a sniperfag though
he only goes heavy when hank is like ‘do you know how pointless it is to medic a sniper?’
and he’ll be like ‘*SIGH* FINE.’
*goes hoovy for one round*
of course. alex plays tf2 as well
but he’s the asshole pyro that m1+w’s everyone
and he always bitches at Hank for being Charles’ ‘butt medic’
hank is like ‘prove to me you can use the air blast from the original model flamethrower and I’ll be your medic’
alex: there’s an air blast option?
they totally play shot games while on TF2 as well
charles would probably want to jump erik’s bones right away but would totally hold back to make it seem like he’s somewhat chaste
But by the second actual date they’ve gone back to Charles’ place and made out on the couch before being interrupted by a startled Hank
Who was supposed to totally be at Alex’s that night.
HANK IS JUST LIKE
UHM. WOW. OK. I’M GOING TO. GO IN MY ROOM.
AND PLAY SOME TEAM FORTRESS
FOR AT LEAST AN HOUR
BUT I MIGHT COME OUT AFTER AN HOUR
BECAUSE I’M KIND OF HUNGRY
and charles would yell back ‘I REGRET NOTHING.’
And Erik just kind of looks at Charles and is about to tell him how peculiar his roommate is but then Charles yells that.
yes and then erik just starts laughing because he’s not really sure what he’s gotten himself into
And Charles turns back to him all bedroom-eyed with a chipper grin that suddenly seems a bit devious for Charles’ normally refrained and nervous actions. The run in with Hank seeming to boost his confidence.
omg erik should tell charles taht his job is like. serving subpoenas or something
and Charles eats it up.
of course. then charles brings it back up later after he knows erik is a hitman
and is like ‘SO DO YOU LIKE. CUT THEIR NECK AND SAY LINES LIKE ‘YOU’VE JUST BEEN SERVED’
and erik just stares at him
charles has to make enough cracks that Erik tells him he thinks charles may be slightly insane
but it adds flavor to the sex
‘we haven’t had sex yet’
Erik stares at him and the utter seriousness that came over Charles when he said yet.
And Charles calmly informs him that he still plans on jumping his turtlenecked-bones sooner rather than later.
omg they should play chess via an ipod app or whatever
and like. at one point erik is making really shoddy moves.
and charles is like ‘ARE YOU KILLING SOMEONE’
and erik doesn’t reply at first
and then ten minutes later he’s like ‘not anymore.’
and charles just keysmashes
And suddenly comes up with. ‘Did you say the court gave the order of ‘off with his head’ to the guy?’
And Erik is just like ‘You really won’t let that go, will you?’
‘NO. AND I REGRET NOTHING.’
“you say that far too often. I’m starting to think you feel like you live a very filling life.’
*links him to a reaction gif of “I regret nothing”*
so then things continue with this adorable slow-budding romance of the ever nerdy professor and the stoic businessman. they haven’t done much outside of making out in front of charles’ apartment.
and they’re on a date when Erik jerks his head up and then knocks over a spoon. he goes to get it and the flowerpot behind him shatters. Charles is like ‘eh?’ and then Erik’s grabbing him and dragging him out of the restaraunt as Charles realizes ‘OH MY GOD WE’RE BEING SHOT AT WHAT THE FUCK.’ and suddenly erik goes from stoic slightly hesitant and unsure of how to act businessman on his first date, to srsface killer who’s throwing Charles into the car and telling him what to do while driving like a bat out of hell and shooting things
and charles is just in the passenger seat screaming his head off. ‘ARE WE IN A CAR CHASE? IS THIS A CAR CHASE? OH MY GOD. RED LIGHT RED LI- YOU JUST RAN THAT LIGHT. WE COULD HAVE *DIED* WHAT IF THERE WAS HEAVY TRAFFIC? OH MY GOD ERIK, WE’RE BEING SHOT AT.’
Erik is just like “SHUT THE FUCK UP. GOD. YOU’VE SEEN EVERY DIE HARD MOVIE AT LEAST TWICE. HAVE SOME SELF RESPECT.” *tires screech as he takes a 90degree turn at 60mph*
and charles just shuts up instantly and puts his seatbelt on and grabs for life at the ‘ohshit’ bar directly next to his window
and prays to god he doesn’t have to pee in the next ten minutes
Even though he had three too many glasses of that nice zinffindel not to need to pee
at one point charles is convinced that he must be in a coma and this is his coma dream because obvs all of these ridiculous fantasies cannot come true
and erik is like ‘I’m sure not every single one of them has come true, it can’t be THAT great, Charles.’
and charles just looks at him and erik puts his hands up in defeat and backs off
I figure like. they’re relationship ends up stable enough where erik says he’s going to stop being a hitman and get a real job.
which doesn’t really go over well with his employers. so they have someone kidnap charles and see what the fuss is about
I think charles uses a lot of the things he’s learned from reading and is actually able to seem kind of badass
they don’t want to kill charles if necessary. he’s done nothing wrong and he seems like a generally good guy - if not a little weird.
I can see Charles kind of squeeing over being a captive. y’know with the whole ‘omg is erik going to save me?’
and then they talk about having killed erik or something. and charles is just sideswiped in realizing he’ll have to save himself
(erik isn’t dead, but they’ve surely informed him that charles is, and he should go back to work. so by the time they set charles free
, Erik will be long gone and back to his job)
so Charles ends up being kind of badass. I mean, yeah he ends up dislocating his right thumb getting out of the ropes
and he’s kind of out of shape
but he still does it
partially because of the adrenaline rush that came with finding out erik’s dead
at one point. I want Charles to be going over to Erik’s for dinner. and erik like. throws the door open
hair disheveled and shirt askew with a blood spatter on it
and charles squeaks ‘is that blood?!’ and erik drags him inside and shuts the door and is like ‘obviously its ketchup.’ *sarcasm*
\ single father of two who barely makes ends meet. his cousin, Shaw, sometimes babysits his children whenever he has absolutely no choice. Shaw’s a little crazy, and Erik doesn’t know he’s a drug addict. Erik comes home one day to find his kids and Shaw’s car gone. Rationality helps him recall Shaw’s various times talking about wanting to live somewhere hot, like florida. so then he breaks into shaw’s apartment and searches through his stuff - finding a plethora of drugs - and pamphlets about a rural area in florida. he takes every single penny he has and uses it to drive across the country to florida, stay in a shitty motel room, and search for his kids. he finds them, but now he has no money - so he, Wanda and Pietro are homeless, living under a bridge near the projects. Erik does odd jobs for the poor families living nearby, and they pay him in food and whatever else they can offer to Erik.
one day, he’s behind a grocery store with Wanda sitting in a cart full of aluminum cans while he and Pietro are digging through the dumpster to find more - when Charles pulls up and is like ‘hey what are you doing?!’ and Erik freezes like a deer caught in the headlights, while Pietro’s like ‘omg dad I found another. this is almost enough for some candy’ and Erik turns away from Charles to quietly tell Pietro that they need to buy wanda new shoes because the other ones are too small and hurt her feet., and maybe next time.
Charles is getting out of his car and Erik quickly clambers out of the dumpster and picks up Pietro, clinging to him and pulling the cart -and wanda- closer. Charles is still in his professor clothes. Erik is too busy panicking. The scholarly type always seem eager to report things to the police.
Pietro seems to sense something’s wrong so he goes quiet and Charles’s like ‘you know, its dangerous for a child to be climbing in a dumpster like that. He could get hurt’
and Erik’s like ‘I’m aware, sir. I was keeping a close eye on him.” slowly, like he’s trying to figure out the best way to word things without losing his children.
Charles purses his lips and sighs out a curse word, and Pietro gasps dramatically and stage-whispers to Erik that he used a bad word.
Erik is like ‘its okay, Pietro. I’m sure he didn’t mean to.”
and Charles’s like ’I’m sorry, little one. I have some hershey’s kisses in my car, how about I give you some as an apology for saying a bad word?” and Erik stares at him while Pietro wiggles around to be let down.
1) s5/6 alternate ending with cas being human. but jimmy’s still in there. and it turns into this whole dissociative identity disorder in which jimmy and castiel (at first) are constantly battling for control. Jimmy wants to go home and Cas wants to stay with Dean and they both deserve some form of happiness. I have some of this written if anyone is interested in it.
2) a domestic future!fic
in which dean gorges on some kind of unhealthy food that he hasn’t seen in years
and gets a horrible stomach ache
and is like ‘WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME.’
and then rants at cas and sam because they’re the ones that turned the house into a health food store.
with once-a-week pie to make dean happy
(dean has learned to stretch his pie out, because of it)
meanwhile, dean hasn’t even noticed how fit he’s gotten because of his healthier habits.
and he doesn’t even realize it
until he’s laying on the couch and Cas comes over to rub his aching belly. and points out that, without the abundance of diner food and excess grease/sugar, his body’s finally managed to make use of all the working and exercise dean does via hunting
and starts tracing the outline of each muscle. B^I
Dean’s the somewhat-rebellious teenage son of a horse rancher and Castiel is the hired hand college sophomore who’s trying to earn money over the summer.
4) AU in which Dean and Cas are already together, and without telling Dean, Cas agrees to watch over his brother/sister’s kids for a few days, and then proceeds to get a cold/big case for work and leaves Dean to take care of a 10 year old and 13 year old he’s only met twice before. It doesn’t help that they think he’s the coolest guy ever, or that Dean lacks any experience with kids what-so-ever outside of caring for Sam, who totally doesn’t count because Sam was 10x more mature than these kids.
“here. eat some broccoli. and don’t give me that crap about being allergic to green things, otherwise I’ll force feed it to you with a pair of foreceps.”
“… I like broccoli.”
“Oh. well. good. no foreceps required.”
5) captain america spinoff: probably set somewhere between 2005-now, I haven’t decided. its war, man. but its not regular war, its everything that goes bump in the night working together to try and dominate the human race, a spooks rebellioin or whatever.
humans are getting desperate. they experiment on monsters, create a serum to make a kind of super soldier. castiel, a mild-mannered introvert twin to Jimmy Novak who was drafted when shit hit the fan, is chosen.
they need someone with a good head on their shoulders so that they don’t go rogue with power
probably called something like project Angel or whatevs.
human!cas becomes superhuman!cas. but he’s obvs not gonna be exactly like an angel in the show. he can teleport, has mild telepathy (he can clear someone’s mind and put them to sleep, and read the topmost thoughts/emotions) and a couple of other things
Castiel’s obvious love interest would be anna, the sweet firecracker of a girl who’s one of the heads of project angel. but y’know. its cas. he falls in love with the war-hardened soldier in his squad named Dean who’s seen more battles than any other man his age - and hates the ANGELS because he thinks they’re inhuman and take away the entire purpose of the war
oh yeah. cas also has the extreme strength, invulnerability, and rapid healing.
cas has a habit of protecting dean, even when he doesn’t need to be protected and dean’s like ‘I’M A FUCKING *MAN* GODAMMIT.’
oh yeah. cas isn’t 100% invulnerable. I mean. you could kill him if you cut his head off or something in which his body couldn’t instantly heal.
also with anything dipped in this formula that’s been transmuted from the original serum used to create him. it breaks down the chemicals that make him superhuman, thus able to kill him.
I think they get together pretty anti-climactically. they’re sitting there, eating an MRE or whatever
and Dean’s complaining about the taste and Castiel is like ‘there are much worse things than this.’ and Dean’s just gets this sudden desire to find out how cas tastes
and castiel, mind reading little shit that he is, is like ‘I would taste like the food I’m eating, Dean.’
Dean’s like ‘*CHOKES* wh-w wh? *splutter*
and then he stands up and throws his MRE at Cas and is like ‘Don’t read my thoughts!’ and Cas is like ‘But you were projecting them! D: ’
and dean stomps off
and then turns and sees Cas all mopey and hunched over his food
and stomps back
and grabs cas and kisses him
and then stomps off again before he can give in to the urge to keep kissing that ridiculously happy grin off of castiel’s face
