I’ve had like three requests for Albert/Anna fic and I have no fucking idea on plot for that one either.
A teacher I once had always looked a tad uncomfortable when anyone mentioned space exploration, which we were all fascinated by at that age.
One day a classmate of mine asked him why he always looked away when anyone brought up going up in a space shuttle.
He said “I tried to go to space in 1986, and, luckily, they didn’t pick me.”

I AM NOT USED TO HAVING THESE KINDS OF PLOT BUNNY PROBLEMS.
I really want to write a lengthy, character-driven-but-with-a-good-unique-plot driven Firefly fic.
Problem is, me no have plot.
Today at work a I asked a bunch of customers if they happened to know a Miles Thorson.
Most of them had not in fact met the man.
I just love my co-worker. She’s a Sunni Muslim and whenever we’re chatting and I bring up something that happens to be a culture/religious difference, she goes something like “oh, see I can’t do that because we believe…”
Never “you shouldn’t do that.” Never “people shouldn’t do that.” Always “people in my specific religion shouldn’t do that.”
Everyone needs to be like her.
GUYS BUT IMAGINE THEATRE IN THE WIZARDING WORLD
A WITCH STANDING IN THE WINGS CASTING A TRANSFIGURATION CHARM ON THE PUMPKIN
ANIMAGI ACTORS PLAYING IN THE LION KING SO THERE ARE ACTUAL LIONS ONSTAGE
ALADDIN’S FLYING CARPET ACTUALLY FLYING
ELPHABA GETTING ON A REAL BROOM AND FLYING AROUND THE THEATRE SINGING DEFYING GRAVITY
THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS
But holy fuck do I wish that there’d be a Zenyatta/Blame foal. It would be so interesting to see how the people would react.
How would the hardcore Zenyatta fans - meaning the ones who resent Blame because he beat Zenyatta - feel about her having a foal sired by Blame?
How would those who don’t like Zenyatta and love Blame (either by coincidence or because of the 2010 Classic) feel about one of Blame’s offspring being out of Zenyatta? Especially if the resulting filly or colt turned out to be a stakes horse?
As someone in none of these camps - I neither worship nor dislike Zenyatta or Blame - and someone who is so intrigued by human behavior - I think I’d enjoy a Zenyatta/Blame foal way too much.
Too bad it’ll never happen.
