No Fried Transgenics Challenge

CHALLENGE BY: CandyCentric
ORIGINALLY MADE: July 2006
TITLE of challenge (if any): No Fried Transgenics Challenge
CHALLENGE DETAILS:

Instead of Renfro & Co trying to toast the Transgenics, they fled to an unknown location. All Max finds is the burnt remains of the old Manticore. If you involve Alec (which you should, he is hot ) was he still in the building? Did he go to the new Manticore? Or was he already on the outside? (could easily be very short or very long)

+ Points for A) Having Max try to find them and break everyone out, B) Her getting backup along the way. Alec? Logan? Both? Does she enlist the help of some of her brothers and sisters?

Jealousy Challenge

CHALLENGE BY: CandyCentric
ORIGINALLY MADE: July 2006
TITLE of challenge (if any): Jealousy
CHALLENGE DETAILS:

Max & Alec bicker quite a lot & supposedly have no feelings for each other. Reluctantly (for both) they have to go on a mission together. Part of the mission requires Max somehow cozying up to another guy (ie. flirting, dancing, kissing, pretending to be a hooker - whatever you come up) who's quite happy about it (the guy). The point? Alec gets jealous, of course. Whether it ends there or not, is up to you - as is the time/setting.

What If Bunny

CHALLENGE BY: CandyCentric
ORIGINALLY MADE: July 2006
TITLE of challenge (if any):
CHALLENGE DETAILS:

What if towards the middle/end of season 2, Zach (in his right mind) found Max and stayed with her, causing her to forget all about her 'annoying' friend Alec? How do you think Alec would feel?

Whether you choose to keep 'Some Assembly Required' in the story is up to you. You could either A) pretend like 'Some Assembly Required' never happened (ie. no steelheads and Zach didn't go crazy) & have Zach escape Manticore & eventually find Max OR B) have Zach go to the farm & get his memory back, then come find Max.

Don't Call Me Baby

CHALLENGE BY: CandyCentric
ORIGINALLY MADE: August 2006
TITLE of challenge (if any): Don't Call Me Baby
CHALLENGE DETAILS:

Max is mad about... something, whatever. Anyway - she heads to TC's dilapidated gym to blow off some steam. While doing so Alec shows up (or maybe he was already there?) and makes some Alec'y comment about her looking hot. She tells him to shut it and that she's not in the to mood to deal with him. Of course, that in no way discourages Alec, who continues bugging her. He makes another Alec'y comment (cuz he's Alec) and uses some lame pick-up line on her (or something like that) and refers to her as 'baby'... which Max does NOT like. The finale? Max kicks Alec's butt, in FRONT of an audience.

I know, I know. But really, Alec would probably let her, right? Because for one thing, he would obviously hold back, not wanting to actually hurt her. And for another, maybe he knew she needed an out let for her frustration - he just probably didn't realize she would take it that far.

Okay - so that’s basically all the plot I want in that (well, you can probably add/change a bit )- but there's always a possibility of a sequel, IF you want more.

Plot bunnies for sequels (or you can come up with something better) --> A) Max feels bad and tries talking to Alec - but has she pushed him too far this time? B) Alec decides to teach her a lesson (oh - I bet your little heads are swarming with naughty ideas there) C) "insert equally cool idea here." lol.

I really, REALLY hope someone takes a shot at this. I know I sounded pretty specific, but really, whatever you come up with I'm sure I'll love. I tried writing this one a few times myself, but I eventually gave up in hopes of it getting done by professionals.

Also - if you are at all interested in this - you must - MUST - listen to the song that inspired this idea. Song title is (surprise) "Don't Call Me Baby" by Madison Avenue.

Teamwork Challenge

CHALLENGE BY: CandyCentric
ORIGINALLY MADE: August 2006
TITLE of challenge (if any): Teamwork
CHALLENGE DETAILS:

Timeline: During 'Some Assembly Required'. Zach, Max & the rest of the gang are at Crash. While Max is at the bar getting beer, one of the Steelheads slips up and sticks her w/ a needle causing her to pass out. They take her back to the hangout.

Basic Plot: What if the Steelheads sold her to the highest bidder before anyone found her? (ie. Military? Overseas? drug dealers? etc.) Let’s have Zach & Alec form a rescue mission to bring her back. Would they get along at all?

*Whether you have Zach's memory messed up (like in the show) or not, is up to you.
*What happens to Max wherever she goes is up to you. (ie. is she relatively ok? Did they erase her memory? Was it hell and she turns all feral-like?)
*Whether you make it a M/A or M/Z shipper or non-shipper fic is up to you.

Hereditary

CHALLENGE BY: CandyCentric
ORIGINALLY MADE: August 2006
TITLE of challenge (if any): Hereditary
CHALLENGE DETAILS:

TIMELINE: Sometime after Freak Nation.

STORY: Basically, everything's the same up until Freak Nation. But just when feelings are starting to develop between Max & Alec, his DNA mark-up comes back to bite him in the butt. Alec soon starts having 'Ben-like' thoughts, but tries to ignore them. They get worse and more frequent, but he still refuses to believe he's in any way like 'his crazy brother’ Ben. He also hides it from Max, who notices he's been acting strange. Then he starts becoming more violent, even killing ordinaries in fights when it's not necessary (ie - actually killing them instead of just rendering them unconscious) .

You take it from there.

+Points for A) Not making the whole story about why Max isn't with Logan (I don't mind if you take the 'easy way out') but do whatever you feel fits the story. B) Having a lower rated counterpart if you do it NC17. C) Involving (at some point, for however long you see fit) a new character (a fellow transgenic?) that was somehow important in Alec's past.

Sins Of The Past

CHALLENGE BY: CandyCentric
ORIGINALLY MADE: August 2006
TITLE of challenge (if any): Sins Of The Past
CHALLENGE DETAILS:

This was meant to be really dark & angsty, but do with it what you want.

Rewind back to Bag 'Em. What if Alec really did kill Max? Maybe even he decided not to, but then accidentally he still kills her?

Okay so, she 'dies' & what happens to him? Does he feel so horrible that he goes crazy & ends up working for White? Or maybe he's the one that gets T.C. going & never says anything about Max to anyone again?

And the kicker? - Max didn't really die! Who saved her? Did Lydecker find her in time to be revived?

And what happens when one finds out the other is alive?
