* a not-bad alternate history idea that would probably take 5000+ words to pull off, which I don't think I have time for
* a silly humour idea that I might write anyhow, just not for this
* many thoughts about Jack and Harry that are writing themselves in the back of my brain while I try to focus on Jack and Daniel
* a boring character vignette idea
I may have to add some sort of random element, like "have them play a game" or "use the phrase 'hat trick' and the colour 'azure'" to come up with a viable idea. And my recipient is on my friendslist, so brace yourself -- it could be you!
(Hmm, I suppose all the time I spend gazing at Roy Mustang on my desktop isn't helping either. *g*)
