Part of the Cure  
So when everything is falling down around my ears, I start creating stories, characters, etc., in my head. Most will never see the light of day, but this one.... we'll see.

This is a Magnificent 7 modern day AU, where they're a SHIELD team. I have most the characters' backgrounds sorted, just need a plot!

Chris Larabee: Army Special Forces, captured in Afghanistan, thought to be dead, three years later, escapes/maybe rescued. Comes home to find his wife had recently remarried (wanted to do something other than killing her off)

Buck Wilmington: Grew up with Chris in New Mexico, they joined the Army together, he never gave up on Chris, never truly believed he was dead. Tony Stark's escape gave him fresh hope that his friend might be alive.

Ezra Standish: (this is my favourite one) Maude was exiled from Asgard to Midgard, where she married a human. She's always telling Ezra she's going to restore his 'god given gifts'[snerk]. Ezra is captured sneaking around the bifrost site in New Mexico.

Vin Tanner: Chris met Vin while they were both in hospital at the US military hospital in Germany. Chris after his escape, Vin for wounds from an IED. After they come home, Chris removes himself to his family's ranch in New Mexico, and offers Vin a home and a job as long as he needs it.

Nathan Jackson: A doctor at the hospital in New Mexico Thor first showed up, he knows more than he should due to his drunk friend Darcy telling him more than she should.

Josiah Sanchez: Obadiah Stane's head of security, who realized too late what his boss was up to. Arrested after the events of IM I, he's trying to atone for what he's done.

JD Dunne: Hotshot pilot, crop duster as a teenager, joined the Air Force, trained to fly choppers. Think Murdoch from the A Team except sane.

Sound like it has potential? It's definitely been entertaining me the last few days!

I like your character development
I hope you can find a plot.........
Timely too. I am beta for a friend who is writing a modern day ATF M7
She writes a lot of M7 ff...is very partial to Vin and Chris.

Thank you :)

This? Sounds fantastic. If you ever get around to writing it--even bits of it--I would totally be all over reading it. :)

(And I'm sorry to hear things aren't going well for you guys. Definitely sending prayers and well wishes your way. Let us know if there's anything we can do.)

I think it would be fun to write!

Thank you.

I'd read it!

You know, I'd swear I recently read about this being developed for a movie, with the SEALS protecting a village in Iraq or Afghanistan. (I think there may have already been a screenplay.) Damned if I can find the article now!

EDIT: Found it! It was on Big Hollywood last October--> Seven Samurai Set in Afghanistan--Starring Navy SEALS

The Seven Samurai get around!

This looks amazing! I haven't been reading a lot of Mag7 fanfic lately, but this I would definitely read!

I hope it ends up being written. :)
Ith: Mag 7 - Rideithildyn on April 1st, 2012 08:06 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Maybe it will!

I would read that. And just imagine how much SHIELD team 7 could annoy the hell out of Fury. XD
Ith: Iron Man -  Partyithildyn on April 1st, 2012 08:07 pm (UTC)
I think they'd give Tony a run for his money in that regard [g]

It sounds awesome! I'll be there reading if you write it :D

Cool beans!

I know very little of Mag7 outside of reading fic (ie Casey's and yours!) but I'd certainly read this. Might I suggest the Avengers movie from their POV as a plot? Assuming the muses hold off until you can see it that is!

(Have I mentioned lately that it's released April 26th here in the UK? *weg*)
Ith: Avengers - Badgeithildyn on April 1st, 2012 08:10 pm (UTC)
That's a good idea! I'll see if the bunnies get scurrying after I see the movie. That's part of the problem I'm having with White as Snow currently - knowing the movie is fast approaching and I'm going to be totally Jossed.

As long as people are as scrupulous about not spoiling as I am, I have no problem with it.
hilton_kaskhilton_kask on March 29th, 2012 06:32 pm (UTC)
oooh, me likey!
Ezra as a demi god - of course.
Like the intros, definitely has promise for more!
Ith: Mag 7 - Ezra Cardsithildyn on April 1st, 2012 08:12 pm (UTC)
Hey there, Twitter friend!

I just couldn't resist the idea of Maude being banished, and Ezra being half Asgardian [g]

As soon as I saw "Maude was exiled from Asgard to Midgard" the thought that immediately popped into my head was, "because she was a sorceress training with Loki and took her pranks a little too far"! :D
Ith: Mag 7 - Vin B&Withildyn on April 1st, 2012 08:13 pm (UTC)
Isn't it terrific to imagine?

It's interesting to see that I'm not the only one who starts creating stories when I'm stressed. I too start with characters and a general plot in my head, and if I think it's good enough for others to read I might pursue it. Otherwise, it just stays in my head waiting for me to take the time to write.

Your story sounds like an interesting start!

Thank you :)

If that's what you came up with in just a few days, I'd LOVE to see a fully-written story. If you need a cheerleader, then I'm your girl. That would be a great story/series to read. :)

So many ideas, so little time :)
Black Rook: Artizelgrachonok on May 15th, 2012 06:46 pm (UTC)
Came back to this post now when I can understand it:). (Well, most of it, still need to see Thor:)). The guys totally should be a SHIELD team:). (Caught myself imagining Vin and Clint together in the range, Chris and Cap talking, and Buck trying to flirt with Natasha... JD must have been selling tickets to this:). Oh, and Ezra telling Maude off, stating he wouldn't repeat Loki's mistakes:)).
Hope you'll write that AU one day... or just have fun playing with the idea:).
Ith: Avengers - Loki Mischiefithildyn on June 9th, 2012 04:53 pm (UTC)
I hope to write it one day as well. Or maybe someone else will.

Oh please oh please ohpleaseohpleaseohpleaseohplease do this!!! I will give you all the internets for this story, just fyi. :)
Ith: My Fic Icons - Chibi Tony & Ezraithildyn on June 9th, 2012 04:52 pm (UTC)
You never know! Right now, I'm tied up with my current series with another version of Ezra, who is an old companion of Nick Fury's. It's complicated LOL (it's set in the same universe as the story I recced you with Tony in the old west)

Glad you liked the potential concept!

OMG! Yes, I'm be honest, I was pulled away from Mag7 for a while by another fandom but I'm slowly getting back into the fandom of cowboys and gamblers. I'll be on the look out for this for sure, I love your characters background, (most of all Ezra @_@).

EDIT: So I came across this the yesterday and I thought of your idea, I'm not sure if you're a Big Bang fan but I thought I would passed this along to you. The Avengers Crossover Big Bang

Thanks :) I don't really do challenge stuff - I'm too all over the place.

Glad you like the idea!
