-Saltpeter is one of the main ingredients of Gunpowder. In the Middle Ages, when this powder was first created, Saltpeter was derived from Human Urine.
-The tongue is the fastest regenerating organ in the body.
-Atoms are unbelievably changeable, for example, Diamond is the hardest known material to man, it is very abrasive, it acts as an electrical insulator, it is the best known thermal conductor, it is very transparent, and is isotropic. Graphite on the other hand is very soft, one of the softest known materials, it is a lubricant, an excellent conductor of electricity, it acts as a thermal insulator, it is also opaque, and is very anisotropic. Yet both Diamond and Graphite are made of the same element-Carbon.
-The First Alterac Valley Battleground Instance that took place on the Gilneas Server within the World of Warcraft lasted three days in total, with the Alliance winning.
Story Challenges That May be Interesting:
@Temeraire series x Legend of Dragoon@
You know you want to...
@Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex@
Story centering on the Tachikoma's either as humans or living within human bodies, possibly after 2nd GIG.
@Wheel of Time@
Time travel story. Preferably of Rand, Mat and Perrin, travelling back in time to the beginning of the series, but with their minds intact, and see how they react. I personally want to see them all working at getting closer to their romances before-hand, thinking it won't matter too much, mayhap Rand's bonds are even left intact.
Don't really care about the story setting or plot. Just want MattxMira and/or RaynorxSelendis.
@Merlin x The Inheritance Cycle@
Kilgarrah and Saphira. Do you see where my mind is going yet?
@TMNT x Drizzt@
Drizzt in the TMNT world, him verses Karai or Leonardo would be epic.
@Inuyasha and Sekirei@
SK pairing in the Sekirei universe, work with it :)
Have a Daniel Jackson x Lya fic, it's a pairing that has never been done before AFAIK.
@HP x Warcraft@
Think about it, Harry, Warcraft, and one other word, Malygos, since WotLK came out, it should be obvious what I'm thinking. I mean, Mage-Alia's fic is great, and it just uses the RTS.
@Dynasty Warriors x Naruto@
Bronx Shogun's Musou no Jutsu was pretty tight, we should have more.
@Black Lagoon x Hellsing@
Can you say, bloodshed? Details are totally up to you, just throwing the characters together is enough.
I don't really care what the content is, but there would be a romantic spin to it(ChiefxCortana) and Cortana and John are able to create mental envorionments they can share in, you know what that means. I would personally like to see a cyborg Chief, but it doesn't really matter. You can crossover it if you want, I don't care.
@Drizzt Do'Urden x Avatar: TLA@
This could be pretty good, you could give Drizzt any elemental power, or none, I'm partial to Fire. Pairings can be anything, I like Drizzt x Azula or Drizzt x Ty Lee, although there is the whole age issue thing...you could have him get over that.
@Gears of War x Drizzt - or - GoW x Halo@
There's a catch to both of these, the Chief or Drizzt, must fight on the side of the Locust, either right away, or eventually. They could also become a 3rd side to the war.
@Overlord 1 x Ubel Blatt@
Both have a heroic character betrayed by supposed 'heroes' and go kind of evil, how evil the Overlord is depends completely on you. How they meet each other is up to you, but I think the Overlord in the Ubel Blatt universe would go well.
@Medaka Box x HP/Naruto@
Either Harry or Naruto could go well here, at least once the series gets a bit longer. The Flask Plan offers alot of interesting possibilities.
@Dance in the Vampire Bund x Hellsing@
Either Seras or the daughter of Seras is in Japan during the formation of the bund. Interesting possibilities. One rule: Hellsing pwns.
@Jame Cameron's Avatar x Godzilla@
There's one already, but the one I'm thinking about is a bit different.
