    A Quantum Leap inspired SI multicrossover fic with an optional input from readers.

    It's basically what the show was, but instead of travelling in time, SI gets to travel to various popular franchises and fixes things there. Al can be used as the readers' stand-in to communicate some of their comments about what the main character should do.

    Few leaps:

    1) HP world where he finds himself as John Dawlish in Harry's forth or fifth year at Hogwarts, either to save Cedric or Sirius.

    2) NGE world where he's Makoto Hyuga and generally needs to stop the end of the world.

    3) DF world where he's Harry Carpenter and needs to save Molly from becoming the soulless Winter Lady.

    4) DC world where he's some random cop in Gotham and needs to stop Joker from shooting Barbara Gordon.

    5) ASoIaF world where he's an ex-slave in Dany's army and needs to stop her from becoming the Mad Queen.

    The important factor is that there is no Chaos Theory in the work there, but the Narrative Theory. His random actions won't change anything and bigger ones initiate counter-actions that try to get back to the original outcome. The best option is to not try derail the narrative, but rather put in on a different track. Maybe even change the setting themes.

    Lucifer tv show plot bunny

    God and angels' backstory going to be different. God created only the first 5 angels(Lucifer is the youngest), rest are just humans who ascended to angelhood through their deeds. The play is going on for thousands of years. So, in this setting, we see Lucifer chilling in one of the nightclubs in LA and observing humans. I want to show it as first scene.

    The story will be like,

    Lucifer takes a sip from his drink, ignoring the lady who is bugging him for sometime. Suddenly, a crazy dude opens fire on them, making him bleed for the first time in his life. Things go downhill for Lucifer since then. Having no idea what happened, Lucifer will be in shock. He notices his miracle recovery once the lady from the nightclub leaves. He decides to investigate it. After a bit of stalking and using his angel powers quite liberally, he finds the cause. This whole episode going to be intro.

    The main story will have him as Lux owner and LAPD consultant. He will secretly study the Detective to know how she makes him almost human. He leaves the Hell to its own devices, spending his whole time on earth. This will cause trouble in Paradise, resulting in conflicts with his archangel siblings(no amenadiel will be in my story). His siblings instist him to take his responsibilities seriously. All the drama will follow. Lucifer will have no devil face. It's just an illusion to scare sinners in Hell. Also he is not going to seek counseling from any doctor. He is more than 5k+ year old. Why would he act like some dude in midlife crisis?! Instead, we will have his sister Gabriel annoying him his every waking moment. One time, Michael will flatten his Lux building in a fit of rage. Managing Hell is the most important thing after all. One can't leave it to hell.

    So much potential.

    My take on Terminator: Dark Fate to have both a new setting and not discard the old one.

    Senator John Connor, a potential presidential candidate in the next election, gets a late nigh call from a special government agency, Judgment Day Prevention, he helped create. "It's happening again, sir" they say.

    The special team arrives at the location where Grace and Rev-9 appeared to deal with the situation. At first it appears that they have an advantage, but the robot quickly adapts manages to overcome the opposition.

    Grace and Dani escape with a help of a random bystander who turns out to be John. They decide that to have better chance against Rev-9, who can remotely use the modern technology, they need to go off the grid.

    John takes them to his mother's house who even after all these years believes in being prepared for the worst. There they meet Colonel Carl, John's old mentor who helped create the agency.

    Together they make a plan to battle Rev-9 and stop Legion.


    In my opinion, using unofficial ending of T-2 with John as political gives a good start. He's a guy aware of what could easily happen and decides that while they got lucky, he and his mother aren't enough to prevent the next time Skynet or something similar. Instead of working outside of the system like Sarah, he works inside it. Of course, that gives Rev-9 a lot of information to use against his team and win their first confrontation.

    Arnold is not a robot this time and John and Sarah can only guess why Skynet decided to use Carl appearance for its early units, but considering that he's basically a human Terminator and helped create a prototype mechanics arms that he uses for himself, there is definitely some connection between him and the AI.

    Both Connors find a lot of themselves in Grace and Dani, but especially John finally has someone to talk about what it means to find out that you're suppose to become a savior of the humanity.

    H. P. Lovecraft's notes about the world of Minecraft.

    The cubic nature of the reality, the clearly not-human villagers, the utterly horrifying Mobs like the Undead, Creepers and Endermen.

    And that's not even touching the Nether and the End!
