Fic I would maybe like to write/read and their fake summaries:
“When Scott has no idea what the hell is going on, he goes to Stiles.
When Stiles has no idea what the hell is going on? He goes to Harley.”
Maybe it’s a Stiles-gets-bit story, maybe it’s a Stiles-has-magic-that-activates-pre-Scott-getting-bit, maybe it’s entirely AU. Who knows?
Or, whatever allowed Rebecca “Harley” Harlowe to survive three seasons of supernatural bullshit must be something really helpful. Like common sense.
Seriously, she has a speaking role and a full name and she’s in multiple scenes in the FIRST EPISODE. Sure, we never see her again, but I like to think that’s because she knows to steer clear of all the dumb melodramatic danger.
I enjoy this fic’s characterization of her, though if I were to write the above, my version of Harley would probably be slightly different. By which I mean, slightly less ruthless. Not that that part isn’t enjoyable, but because in order for Harley to help out Stiles she’d have to be willing to do so.
Basically, I have a great appreciation for Harley. Or rather, what Harley could have and should have been.
“Darcy frequently talks about the time she knocked out an alien god with her taser and had her iPod stolen by a ‘vague, yet menacing, government agency’ because
a) she’s a fan of Welcome to Night Vale and cannot help but liken her experience with Thor to the series
b) regardless, it is the second most interesting thing about her life
c) her taser and iPod never stop talking about it, either.
(Or, in which Darcy Lewis is a technopath)”
I’ve been reading a lot of Darcy-centric fic recently, and while I do love her as our stand-in normal human, I love her as a character more. And I’d like to see what a non-superhero/villain with powers would look like next to the Avengers, some who are superhuman and others just human.
I wouldn’t actually want her to be related to Tony/Magneto/Xavier either? Just… you know… a random mutant who happens to intern for the scientist who makes first contact with Asguardians. And even though she would be a technopath and it’d make ~science~ easy for her, I’d still want her to be poli-sci major, same as the movies, Darcy. Just that she can talk to machines.
A/N: Not really a drabble, not really brainstorming. I present to you the first of (probably) many fake fic summaries!
