The 50 AUs Meme

brighterthanroses:

So I love writing and reading AUs. They’re delicious and multi-faceted, like that latte from your favorite coffee shop. You know, the one you write into all your coffee shop AUs. 

The goal of this meme is to write 50 AU fics. There’s no time limit, no deadline. It might take you a month; it might take you a year. That’s okay—we all write at different paces. The point of this exercise is to get you to A) do some research, B) flex your creative muscles and C) have fun. Write a drabble, write an epic, write something in between. Write for multiple fandoms. Write for a single fandom. It’s up to you.

There are a couple of ground rules.

  • Each fic MUST include at least three characters from the source material. They obviously need to be as in character as they can be, so if your OTP doesn’t quite fit the AU, maybe use different characters instead! 
  • In order to complete the meme, you have to write a fic for each AU scenario. There might be a couple of free spaces on there for you to do with as you choose (create your own prompt and write for it), but otherwise please only write AUs that are listed. Don’t worry, there’s 50 of them. You’ll find inspiration for at least thirty
  • Tag your fic with #50ausmeme so I can read them!

Now, here are the AUs.

The very first time I saw you Harry, I recognised you immediately. Not by your scar, by your eyes. They’re your mother Lily’s. Oh yes, I knew her. Your mother was there for me at a time when no one else was. Not only was she a singularly gifted witch, she was also an uncommonly kind woman. She had a way of seeing the beauty in others, even, and perhaps most especially, when that person couldn’t see it in themselves. Your father, James, however, had a certain, shall we say, talent for trouble. A talent, rumour has it, he passed onto you. You’re more like them than you know, Harry. In time you’ll come to see just how much.

characters who have never had families building found families are very important to me
