AUs it is inevitable I will write someday because I like them so much

* an arranged marriage fic
* a circus AU
* a soulbonding fic (along the lines of something in this post)

I don't have ideas for any of those things right now, and I don't know what fandom they'd go in. But SOMEDAY. (Possibly the solution would be to combine them and write a fic with all three.)

:DDDD

I have a inescapable fondness for them after doing some research for writing an original fic about 30s circuses, years ago. I am always delighted to find a good one. Again, I don't know what I'd do with a circus AU, and I'd need to refresh my memory, but.

\O/ \O/ \O/ I will confess to having no actual interest in attending real-life circuses, though I haven't been to one since I was like, five. But I remember it being hot and I remember being bored to tears, so. XD I'm not really a carnival or a theme park-type person, unless that park is Disneyland. But maybe that's changed since I was five, lol, who knows?

Regardless--as an aesthetic, yes!! The Bakhtinian/Rablesian carnivalesque, absolutely. And like, stuff like Tragical Comedy of Mr. Punch or whatever it is that book is called, yes!! And circus arts themselves, of course very much yes.

It's not a circus AU, but you might enjoy some of Tessa Fontaine's writing. I enjoy her a lot--like, to the point where my thought about her is, "If I were the type to get a tattoo, I'd get a tattoo of a Tessa Fontaine quote"--but she's currently acting as a fire-breather and snake charmer in a traveling circus, so that's where here writing's at, too. She also keeps a Twitter with brief commentaries on sideshow life ( @MouthFullOfFire).

That soulbonding post is everything. I really want to read/write fic about a detective agency dealing with soulbonding -- either searching for soulmates, generally, or investigating imposter soulmates and fake bonds.
