Welcome to Dreaming of Sunshine Switch: What Plot?
The idea came from Lady Hallen through the forum We're all Dreaming of Sunshine. This is fanfiction for the fanfiction Dreaming of Sunshine by Silver Queen. This is a collaboration project.
The General idea is what would happen if Canon characters came in contact with DOS characters. The general chapters for this fic will only have Shikako and Sasuke arriving at Canon World and Chibi-Sasuke arriving at DOS World.
This means Omakes are accepted. They don't have to exist within the head-canons of the general fic.
If you would like to write something for Switch or have an idea please review or contact Lady Hallen or Fragile Dreams. Switch will be set as chapters centered on characters interacting. The plot is lose (no whining).
Hope you enjoy,
-Lady Hallen & Fragile Dreams
Credits: (Also known as: How it happened)
Canon meets DOS and inspirations: Recursive fanfiction Forum. Excerpts. Sorry guys. Didn't realize how much this filtered through until I started going through the forum. This is sorted by date.
Yorozuya: "I actually really like DoS meeting Canon"
Juno-nine: "…meeting canon, too. There are a couple of characters that are on their way to being very different from their canon counterparts"
Fell's Apprentice: "if 16 year old Sasuke from Dos meets 16 year old him from canon, his biggest reaction might be horror"
ByeByeBriar: "Imagining Sasuke getting switched with DoS!Sasuke just after the Chunin Exams"
13LuckyWishes: "Root! Shikako AU" Flashbang effect. This is where Crossworlds came from.
Donahermurphy: "DoS meeting Root! Shikako"
Toma02: "there is no reason why Shikako couldn't be a canon character that was killed off as a baby" & "I still prefer the idea of canon shikako dying from the nine-tails attack, rather than a still birth"
Lady Hallen then wrote the big fanfiction excerpt that started Switch: What Plot? She posed at the beginning too but then this was the important part. Neh? T
Then Fragile Wishes posted ficlets that continued it.
