    Summary

    You meet a girl, fall in love, move into her amazing mansion and go to Europe every week. It should be perfect, but it's gonna go down in flames.

    She gives you her name, and you Google it automatically, because of course. What you find stops you in your tracks. You stay up until 2:30AM reading about her. She is famous, rich and popular although she doesn't sing, act, or model. She goes to movie premieres and grand openings, and there was absolutely no reason for her to be in a dive bar with you on a random Thursday night. She has thousands of Instagram followers.

     

    It's her. There's no mistaking her eyes.

    Summary

    The opening number seems clear enough: Madalena and Galavant were madly, hopelessly, genuinely in love. Yet the Madalena we meet at her wedding to Richard -- to say nothing of the woman she proves to be as the series progresses -- doesn't seem to have been in love with Galavant at all. Surely both these stories can't be true...

    ...but then again, this is a musical. And a fantasy, since there's an actual wizard in it. And that being the case, there just might be an explanation.

    Summary

    When Wichita had first agreed to stick with Columbus and Tallahassee, she'd though it would be a month or maybe two before they turned out to be dickwads after all.

    She knew how to handle shitty men. She'd dated enough of them before the world ended. Letting them buy her things until they thought she owed them something, and then when they tried to cash in kicking them to the gutter where they belonged. She'd figured this would be the same old story, just with zombies.

    Only it's been three months and while they are a-holes they've never tried to take anything from her that she wasn't willing to give.

    “I am not Batman,” Erin rolled her eyes, “I just know how to take care of myself.”

    “You saved the damsel and left before the cops could arrive,” her friend countered, “You are basically Batman.”

    Original prompt:
    The only characters I nominated are the Narrator and the Martians, but feel free to write about any of the others if you like. I'd love to read anything at all! The only thing I'll beg for is this: please don't "fix" the science with modern knowledge. Old sci-fi is so fascinating to me because yes they're some great stories but also because they're so firmly of their time, they're like glorious little time capsules of every stage of recent scientific discovery and imagination. I'd love to see something in keeping with Wells' era of more limited knowledge but limitless possibility.

    Also - so much potential for amazing crossovers! How do Mina and Jonathan/Sherlock and Watson/grown up Alice or Jim Hawkins/Oscar Wilde(?!) fare with the Martians? If you want to write a crossover/fusion type thing I would be all over that. I'm familiar with a lot of Victorian literature, and plenty of modern stuff set around the same time, but even if I don't know your other fandom I'd still be interested in a crossover if there's something you want to write - I get sci-fi disaster fic AND a new fandom, double win :D
