Just some ideas I had. Some have more to them than others, but all are negotiable Ė from genre to game to pairing, etc. so long as it stays within my ons/offs.
Dragonís Fall Ė Sengoku Basara
This series was phenomenal and I absolutely crushed on Masamune Date. Heís so a cocky fucker, bold and badass with a smart mouth that no one matches. (The only one who might come close is Sasuke.) And then thereís the fact he is ambitious and confident, honorable and loyal, trustworthy and courageousÖI could go on for a whileÖ
Anyway, I have a few avenues for pairing an OC with him, but havenít firmed up on which I prefer. I think the best fit would be a mouthier woman to match his wit and who will stand up to him, challenge him, where others may not. He might not know what to do with her at first, or maybe he likes her spirit and
Option 1 Ė Similar to a Kenshin/Kasuga or Azai/Oichi storyline, sheís sent to kill him but falls for him instead and canít fulfill her mission, etc.
Option 2 Ė She nurses him back to health during one of his ďI just got my ass kickedĒ moments Ė strange how someone so badass is constantly getting hurt.
Option 3 Ė Similar to the first idea, perhaps she blames him for something Ė like her village is razed, family member kidnapped or killed, maybe sheís the daughter of one of his rival kills, etc. Maybe he did it, maybe not, but she thinks he did, so she goes to confront and/or kill him. Perhaps he didnít, but decides to find out who did, which could add in a bit of adventure and mystery.
Yeah, Iím leaning toward Option 3Ö
The Wardenís Lady Ė Dragon Age
This is an Origins plots that pairs Alistair with a non-warden Cousland. She has the same noble intro in game, but she is never made a warden. My idea is that she has some skill and can handle herself for the most part, but is nowhere near the skill of a potential Warden. Perhaps she goes through everything with a brother or sister who is recruited as a Warden. Over the course of the Origin quests, she and Alistair run into each other Ė Ostagar, Lothering, Denerim, etc. At some point, she is found and taken by Howe and Alistair finds her in his dungeon toward the end of the game. Perhaps she was with him for a while, raped, broken? Or maybe she wasnít there so long and Howe hadnít gotten to her torture/death as yet when sheís rescued? From there is the Landsmeet, where sheíd stand for the Couslands lending support to the Wardens; Alistair and his group fighting the Archedemon; and then post game where he would propose or whatever. (As a side, Iíve LOVE to have some scenes with her and Anora where Cousland hands that bitch queen her ass and then later Anora is given a horrible death. I truly donít like that womanÖ)
The first bits I see in flashes of scenes, perhaps one in Ostagar and one in Lothering then a bit where sheíd kidnapped and into the rescue. So the meat of the story would really take place in Denerim at the end of Origins from pre-Landsmeet to post-game.
More Than You Know Ė Tokyo Majin
I quite liked Tokyo Majin and would really like to do an Aio or OC with Kyouichi. I like the whole good girl who likes the bad boy and bad boy who likes the good girl but treats her mean to cover it up complexity thing. Iíd even consider doing this out of the anime context. I just liked their interaction in the show and thought it was always so intense. I imagine a lot of UST with those two that would be amazing when it finally explodes between them. Mix in a little romance and some bits working with their powers, perhaps a little adventure or mystery to solve or something, and it could be fun.
(In case you canít tell, I do like the dark, broody, silent types and badass, mouthy types. The idea of being the one person to be able to penetrate that steely armor is thrilling.)
