It’s been A Heck of A Week. I’m currently trying to rev bunnies up to tackle River again; given it’s not a short fic, they need a lot of energy to get back in the groove. In the meantime, I had a few stray bunnies I thought people might be amused by.
Magi: Alibaba after leaving Qishan. Because at some point between leaving Morgiana to head toward Balbadd and actually getting there/running into Cassim/all that mess, he must have figured out his knife wasn’t just a knife anymore. Given what little we know from canon about figuring out what to do with your Djinn, my bunnies suspect it started with whispers….
Another Magi idea (working title, Economics): Manga canon, one of the things Alibaba did love about his education in Balbadd was the nitty-gritty of trade and being a merchant. Rashid, in Sinbad canon, was good enough to pass himself off as a successful traveling merchant in Reim instead of a king.
So… given exactly how the Kou Empire destabilized Balbadd, why doesn’t Alibaba use that knowledge? Forget trying to take the Kou Empire power vs. power; that’s a sucker’s bet. Why not face them where they don’t have an advantage?
This one actually seems to be getting somewhere, I just need to figure out how much of it I want to write.
Around AU: Now I know I need to do the convention story first. Because I had an image of how Hancock might (note, might, not set on this yet) come to the SGC’s attention, and it’s a doozy.
Basically – last ep of season 3 Stargate, first of season 4? We know, canon, that Thor’s ship the Biliskner crashed into the Pacific. And apparently (almost) nobody noticed. (Those poor Russian submariners….)
What if it didn’t? What if, say, it hit the Gulf of Mexico instead? Can we say tsunami?
Good thing they’ll have a Magi. And a Water Magician…..
