I don't have any particular squicks or triggers (yes, really). I'm not so keen on AU stuff (point-of-divergence AUs are great, everyone-works-in-a-coffee-shop not so much) or total fluffy no-problems curtainfic. I think that's about it?
These are mostly copied and pasted from the other details section, but here in case you want everything in one place / are thinking of writing a treat (in which case - my AO3 name is Kastaka - which might not be obvious :) ):
The Culture - Iain M. Banks:
Characters: Demeisen | GOU Falling Outside The Normal Moral Constraints
I <3 Demeisen - his casual offhand remarks, his entirely justified superiority complex, all the ways that being an Offensive Unit make a Mind slightly off-kilter in the mostly peace-loving Culture. I want to see what else he does - before or after Surface Detail! If you're looking for more inspiration - what happens in the future of Surface Detail when technology has moved on and it's time to transfer 'bodies' or be regraded? Was there some particular incident of Contact restraint in the past that gave Demeisen his poor opinion of them?
Invitation to the Game - Monica Hughes:
The story leaves everyone on the brink of building a new society. What happens next? If you're up for exploring the further-flung reaches of the future, or the next generation, that would be awesome. If you're more interested in the specific characters, we see how some of them begin to adapt, but when they look back on their lives later, what do they see? Are they happy with how far they have come or do they still mourn the lost marvels of Earth?
Millennium Trilogy - Stieg Larsson:
There still just plain isn't enough fic for this fandom. I will love whatever fic you want to write in this fandom :-). I attempted to pick out a few inspirations but basically if I knew what fic I wanted in this setting I'd have written it myself - there are just so many deep relationships and characters here that I'd be interested in seeing any additional bit of this world. If you require more inspiration: How about something from the early life or childhood of the characters?
