PREMISES/PLOT SETUPS  

Lee finds Kara's body on Earth

Kara wants Lee to pray with her

Lee deals with his mother's death

Kara loses her pips

Lee wants to know about Kara and Zak's relationship

Kara wakes up in the brig

Kara and Lee are on their honeymoon when the attacks happen. 

Zak is the fifth cylon.

Lee is serving on Pegasus when the attacks happen. When Kara sees Lee six months after the attacks, he's barely the man she remembers.

Kara has accepted advanced payment for a contract killing. Once the money is wired into her account, she's horrified to discover that her target is Lee Adama.

There's a new driver on the NASCAR circuit and she's supposed to be hot shit. Lee begs to differ.

Kara and Lee are reunited after Bill's death (five years after Zak's)

Lee finds himself attracted to his new CO

Lee has been recruited to serve on the Academy's Review Board and his first case involves a young hotshot cadet

Lee comforts Kara when Helo is presumed dead.

Kara's or Lee's birthday is the same as solstice holiday.

Academy fic, AU or loosely cannon, some angst, UST, but warm & fuzzy pilots ending...

Zak and Kara are stationed on Galactica, they used to date but broke up and Zak is now dating Dee. Lee comes to do the decommissioning ceremony with his brother. Zak is part of the Viper squadron that gets annihilated by the Cylons, Lee still escorts Roslin. Some angst, bit of UST and happy pilots! ending.

UB takes place during the holiday week. Special gifts for each other. New Years resolutions to divorce their spouses. Lots of out making and steam :). 

Kara talks to Ellen instead of Saul on New Caprica after her night with Lee and Ellen encourages her to follow her heart and take what she can, while she can. Kara moves in with Lee on Galactica, but refuses to leave Sam and Saul/Ellen on NC and forms a plan to go back...will Lee or Admiral Adama resist or lead the charge?

The cylons come and Kara & Lee get trapped together alone on New Caprica for an extended period of time. Any backstory/AU interpretation to this is fine--they could be in a relationship or not, married to other people or not, both living on the planet or not...

The writer's original idea for Maelstrom--Kara and Lee get trapped under the hard deck and it looks like there is a way for only one of them to survive if the other sacrifices themself. Kara will sacrifice herself for Lee, and they talk about their relationship issues first, but at the last minute, he comes up with a way to save them both. 

Any variation/combination of these people being cylons: Kara, Lee, Dee, Sam

Any kind of situation where Lee actually picks up Kara and carries her somewhere

After Kara returns in the raider from the Red Moon, Lee keeps lurking/secretly following her, being all mother hen-like and protective and worried, and Kara figures it out and catches him and makes fun of him but then does something sweet to prove she *gets* it and okay, maybe kinda don't-tell-anyone likes it

Lee backs up Kara when she shoots Admiral Cain--what happens next?

A latecomer to the Academy, Lee is Kara's student instead of Zak... (aka a TOP GUN crossover? LOL! Bonus points for shirtless volleyball with Lee and Helo)
Kara helps Lee make friends when he's new to Galactica

A fic about friendship or working together that maybe has some UST (because when don't they) but is mostly about their friendship and how they become mom/dad to pilots.

A spin on the classic O. Henry holiday story, The Gift of the Magi

OK, so I need help figuring out how to make Gift of the Magi work!!! I've been wanting to write a variation on that fic for the past few years and yet...Kara and Lee aren't really "prized possession" kind of people! Esp not on Galactica after the war. I don't think their sacrifices have to be possessions necessarily they could be actions done for one another but then I'm not sure exactly how to make those into an ironic connected thing. HMMMMM.

Oh, there should so be a way to do that. Hmm...

I fell like the biggest sacrifice on Galactica would be time, time off specifically. What if everyone wants leave for solstice and through some complicated trade where they both think they're getting the other an evening on Cloud 9, they end up on CAP together?

That could work but even as scarce as downtime is... it doesn't feel quite epic or meaningful enough to me for some reason? Plus if they're flying CAP that kind of means they can't even touch each other, which...meh.

I was thinking maybe the sacrifice is something that also signifies a family connection in someway. Or maybe...I don't know...maybe it's related to Zak somehow.

Zak was my other thought actually, but I had less of an idea how to make Zak tangible. Or something anyone else would want. I'll try to keep thinking.
