The Heroes What If Meme
vickyblueeyez wrote in heroeswhatif
Similar to the kink meme, you guys provide a character or character(s) and provide a prompt (the character rends to be in the prompt anyway). Some prompts can be based on the following: plot, character or concept. Below are some examples:

* What if Chandra took Sylar in?
* What if Issac never died?
* What if the Bennets never split up?
* What if Mohinder discovered the formula to give people powers?
* What if the virus did break and Peter didn't stop it?
* What if the sexes were switched?

Something along those lines (and you may feel free to use any of the above.

1) Post the prompt/situation/character(s) and feel free to elaborate on it. Anonymous posting is optional.
2) Some awesome person will fill your prompt.
4) More than one writer(s) can fill the same prompt.
3) Your request is not guaranteed. Please do not complain. Writers are needed in order for this meme to be successful. Please try to pick up a challenge yourself.
4) This is slash, fem-slash and het friendly.
5) Fics that are rated R or NC-17 are allowed. However, please place a warning before the story.
5) Though there is a primary focus on the TV series, Book concepts, characters, plots are allowed to be brought in for prompts. :)
6) Writers may choose to fill the prompts anonymously or not, it is optional.
7) No seconding, thirding posts. They don't necessarily contribute. I WILL delete it if I see it.
9) Keep RP/Crack prompts to the proper threads (Heroes vs Zombies or the 'What If' RP thread)

New: Limit it to one prompt per comment. That way it's easier to fill.

Remember to post fills at http://community.livejournal.com/heroeswhatif/1781.html

What if Samuel's brother never died?

Joseph has always been a patient man, a man who saw the greater good and believed in it in his own rebellious way. For him, the greater good was keeping his family together.

It had been a battle to give Danko the compass, but Samuel didn't understand how dangerous he was, how much discord he was causing.

And then Samuel got angry and lifted rocks into the air, sent them flying at him so quickly Joseph couldn't see them. He was only aware of the whish as they flew past his head. He saw Samuel fall to his knees and ran to his brother, hugging him as Samuel cried. "I'm sorry," Samuel said. "I'm sorry, brother, I'm sorry."

"Shh. It'll be all right, Sammy. Everything'll be all right." He kissed Samuel's forehead, and blinked away tears. He'd always struggled to suppress Samuel's emotions before they got out of control, but now he suppressed them completely, holding Samuel as his little brother calmed. He guided Samuel back to Joseph's trailer, suppressed his emotions until Danko arrived, and when his brother was finally gone, he looked around the carnival and didn't feel any better that the carnival was safer.

He sighed. He had done what needed doing. His family would be safe, and the carnival would continue to be a safe haven for specials in danger. Without having to worry about monitoring Samuel, they could harbor more...

And it made him feel so awful he almost wished Samuel had killed him with those rocks.

What if Claire had agreed to Sylar's "proposal"?

Claire agrees to Sylar's "proposal"

Claire gasped as she was thrown from the room, the familiar tug of telekinesis sending her crashing into the wall outside.

"No!" She shouted, catching a glimpse of Sylar before Nathan and Peter ran into the suite like a pair of eager boy scouts. His hands crackled with lightning and his eyes were dark with malice. The corner of his lip rose, his signature smirk emerging. Her heart stopped beating as he winked, then made the doors slam shut.


Her breathing was heavy and frantic for a moment before she found the willpower to stand and press her eye to the space between the two doors.

This was wrong. Her lips were still tingling from that man's vicious kisses, regeneration or no, and he was killing her family.

The killing was nothing new, but the kissing had been a big compromise on her part. Clutching the doorknob, she realized that maybe she shouldn't have assumed he'd hold up his end of the deal.

Peter stumbled out and told her to follow him, but she shook her head and gave some flimsy excuse. She didn't think she'd be able to move unless he carried her. She didn't even want to look at him. Even seeing him made her feel guilty. Dirty.

So she was there.

Sylar spared her the sight of her father being gutted, but only by throwing her back out of the room momentarily. The sounds she heard (and the blood she saw) made it clear he was gone.

"You bastard." She whispered, keeping her eyes narrowed as he stalked towards her with a boyish grin on his face. "We had a deal."

He chuckled.

"Did we, Claire?" He shrugged. "I suppose we did. It was...for you to be my first lady, no?" His eyes lit up as he understood, and he laughed again.

"Poor Claire," He murmured, "Watching too much TV. Did you think kissing the villain would save your Daddy?"

She wasn't sure if it was his eyes or his powers, but she couldn't move when he reached out and brushed her cheek with a finger.

"I don't change my plans for anyone." He whispered, voice like cold honey. "I guess you'll figure that out in the next few decades."

He grabbed her arm and pulled her along with him.

"Let's go find the president, Claire. We have a lot to do."

What if HRG agreed to give Claire away to the Company?

What is Noah Bennet got the regeneration ability from Claire's blood?

What if Noah Bennet got the regeneration ability from Claire's blood?

What if Mohinder and Sylar had met the way the original pilot had intended? (In Mohinder's apartment, soon after Mo arrived in New York)

What if Sylar and Peter had gotten stuck in Sylar's mind (a la The Wall) and had never been able to get out?

I'm not sure if this is allowed but I'll fill this as soon as I can.

What if Sylar never met Elle?

No one really needed watches and clocks repaired anymore, but as the days went by, then the weeks, the landlord eventually stopped by and found Gabriel hanging in the back. It wasn't uncommon in New York to find a dead man. He just had to figure out how to get Gray's crap out to rent the place out to someone new, fast. Gray had missed his rent, and it didn't look like he was going to be paying it anytime soon.

The landlord sighed as he called the cops. He was going to lose money on this shit. Maybe the clocks were worth something.

He ignored the body as he talked to the cops, eying the clocks, considering raising the rent before some new chumps moved in. Life went on, after all.

What if Matt got into a relationship with his FBI partner and left Janance?

She thought he cute.

She thought HE was CUTE.

Matt remembers middle school. All those pretty girls who traveled in packs giggling over which boy they thought was cute.

It was never him. He was the fat kid. Not cute, beefy.

It was only after joining the football team that he even showed up on their radar, but even then he was 'nice'. Not cute.

And now this pretty blonde thinks he's cute?

He stares at her sometimes when she's not looking. When they're not looking for serial killers, or interrogating radioactive men. When she's not staring down men twice her size with her hard brown eyes. When they're just grabbing burgers after a long day, and he makes her laugh with some lame joke of his.

And she's pretty cute too.

What if the baby wasn't Matts?

What if Meredith was alive?

What if Samuel had truly loved Lydia?

What if Nathan didn't die? (Can't believe no one's prompted this yet! Nathan fangirl in the house, hehe)

This speaks to me. I don't know how good it'll be, but working on it.

What if Lydia didn't die?

What if Lydia had a kid by Edgar?
