#2 Iliad
I can imagine this as a modern high school AU with Hector/Helen. Like, Menelaus the jock is after beauty queen Helen and to fend him off she instead pretends to be deeply in love with noted geek Hector. And Hector goes along with it, since he sees that Helen is quite nice underneath, and then they end up actually falling in love and all is great. ^^

Barry/Len or Barry/Lisa with #9? :3

I imagine this being Barry sort of idly making a wish one day, after the rogues have succeeded in a robbery and humiliated him along the way, that he didn’t have to deal with any rogues and a passing magic user hears him and decides that he’s a nice enough guy so that wish gets granted. And for the first few hours/days it’s great, the crime rate goes right down and Joe gets a lot happier, but then Barry really starts to miss them. And, in denial, he starts thinking that something has gone wrong with the universe and decides to seek out what the rogues are doing now. And, to his shock, they’re all perfectly fine – Mark is a behind the scenes support for a weatherman, Lisa is teaching kids how to ice skate, Len is actually a security consultant. And Barry knows that he should be happy, because they all have decent lives and his entire existence is a lot easier, but instead he’s oddly devastated and doesn’t know why.

…And then, because it’s me, it turns out that the magic user was kind of evil and the Rogues aren’t as happy with their new lives as they appear. So, when the magic user decides that Barry Allen is too interesting to be left alone and kidnaps him, the rogues reform and go to get him back. And, along the way, rediscover who they are and what they want. And they expect Barry to be horrified by this and work to remove them again, but instead he’s absolutely thrilled and they all go cheerfully back to normal.

14. Brig/Liz
doreyg

This is an excellent choice considering the fandom! Hmmmmmm. I'm pretty sure that it'd be something along the lines of the Doctor wanting to investigate a "haunted" house or something and forcing the Brig and Liz to come along despite the fact that they both really don't want to. And then, of course, the Doctor wanders off and they get separated and Liz works out that the house has a weird time loop thing going on except now HER AND THE BRIG ARE THE ONLY ONES STUCK IN IT and the Doctor actually has no idea that they are and has just assumed that they've wandered off somewhere to snog (which would probably actually be a piece of dialogue/the Doctor musing out loud, to Liz's great rage and the Brig's great spluttering). And so basically they have to work out how to get out of the time loop, while also confronting their now not so secret feelings for each other. ^^

...I now kind of want to write this. But I haven't attempted Doctor Who fic for years, and so I'm not entirely sure how it'd work out!

Bruce/Harley or Clark/J'onn with number 14, please.

Clark/J'onn!
I imagine a Clark/J’onn groundhog’s day/time travel fic involving J’onn being trapped back around the time of the destruction of his planet/way of life. And he’s given the choice of whether to survive again, or perish with his planet this time around. But what he doesn’t know is that some sort of alien/psychic has mind-whammied him, and the choice is actually between whether he wakes up – to Clark waiting anxiously by his bedside – or remains dreaming forever. And eventually he decides that he will wake up, largely because of memories of Clark (in my mind they aren’t actually together, but both definitely have feelings for each other), and does so to find Clark half-collapsed with relief next to him. And, at the end, they finally get together properly and it’s all rather lovely. ^^

11 or 12 Clark/Lex
doreyg
Sep. 9th, 2015 11:07 am (UTC)
Ooooooh, sharing a bed. I imagine it being set in the DCAU universe? Like, maybe after the finale of Justice League season 2/4 (technically JLU season 2, but JL season 4 overall) where Lex is still very weak from the whole alien possession deal and is being kept under observation in the watchtower. And he can’t really sleep, after the whole body horror thing, but really needs to sleep to actually get any better. So Superman is chosen to share body heat with him, and soothe him to sleep, and both of them care for each other rather more than they should and it all gets very tense. And maybe eventually they come to an understanding, after talking in bed a few times? And Lex still goes back to prison – because he’s still a criminal dick – but they both feel a lot cooler with each other afterwards. ^^

Tim/Kon/Cassie for 8
doreyg
Sep. 9th, 2015 09:43 am (UTC)
WELL KON WOULD QUITE OBVIOUSLY BE THE SECRET VIRGIN. And Tim would be quite obviously the secretly experienced one. And they'd both be extremely surprised by this, and start arguing as Cassie just sits naked in the middle of them with an angry expression on her face. And basically the entire fic would devolve into very little sex and a great amount of people snarking at each other. ^^

Harley/Ivy and #10?
doreyg
Sep. 9th, 2015 11:27 am (UTC)
Oooooh, that could be interesting. I’m largely imagining it as along the lines of Harley and Ivy are fleeing from Batman when they find a baby abandoned on the street. Ivy is all for leaving it abandoned, but Harley insists that the temperature is dropping and she refuses to leave the kid overnight. An adventure thus ensures where Harley and Ivy must avoid Batman, avoid the cops, avoid the Joker (because good god Ivy may not particularly like kids but she is not letting that man anywhere near a living being if she can help it) and get the kid to a shelter before all of the other things catch up to them.

Barry/Hartley 5
I don't imagine this as a traditional handcuffed together fic, but rather as Barry needing to guard Hartley for the day while still doing superhero stuff. So, like, he's carrying Hartley around everywhere and Hartley is being snarky. But somewhere along the way they actually start talking to each other and getting along, and at the end of the day they both agree to do it again sometime. ^^

Clint/Katie -- roadtrip orrrr sharing a bed :))
doreyg
Sep. 12th, 2015 09:54 am (UTC)
I can imagine Katie taking Clint on a roadtrip to see her LA friends at some point. And Clint pretends to grumble a bit, but it secretly thrilled and ready to have ALL OF THE FUN. So they take Lucky and drive across the US, bickering all the while. And stop at ALL the tourist destinations, and annoy pretty much EVERYBODY in their path. And keep stopping to have sex in random places, which is awkward and hilarious and SO MUCH FUN. And basically they have the best time ever, and everything is fluffy and joyous and made of rainbows. ^^
