This entire thing should probably be prefaced with a brief explanation: Ever since I wrote this story, I've been desperate for some McCoy/Jocelyn fic. (Jocelyn, btw, is the name that most Star Trek novels give Bones' ex; I tend to go along with it, even if it isn't strictly canon, because "Jocelyn" can be shortened to "Joss" and that is a pretty fine name.) I'm not sure if this is inspired by Bones always wearing his wedding ring (at least, y'know, in my head canon) or a need to reclaim Jocelyn or what, but I'm kind of toying with the idea that they're still desperately in love, but for whatever reason couldn't make things work out.

Okay, so this is my awesome idea of the week: Lucy Lawless should play Jocelyn. I KNOW, RIGHT? I CAN'T BE ALONE IN THINKING THIS IS AWESOME.

I started re-watching Xena a couple of weeks ago because Karl Urban plays four or five separate characters over the course of the series, and I ended up watching a lot of Urbanless episodes because - well, let's call it what it is, because I want to have Xena's babies. (She! Is! So! Cool!) Anyway, the main character Karl plays is Caesar, and even though Caesar is basically The Face of Evil, my love for Caesar!Karl is only surpassed by my love for Bones!Karl and Reaper!Karl and, okay, maybe Cupid!Karl, because how can I not support any incarnation of Karl that runs around looking like this?

Anyway, the story. For those of you who don't want to have Xena's babies aren't Xena fans, Caesar and Xena start out as lovers...kind of, but basically Caesar is using her because he wants to conquer the world. It's all very complicated, but the important thing is that we have Karl Urban running around in a skirt. Caesar stabs Xena in the back, they have a couple more run-ins over the years, he crucifies her, yadda yadda yadda.

Eventually Caesar is betrayed and killed by Brutus et al, but he manages to take the Fates captive and re-write history so that he and Xena are emperor and empress of Rome. Xena and Gabriella angst a lot and declare their love and finally Fix Things, but in the meantime we get awesome shots of Xena and Caesar being BAMFs together.

So the thing is - I can't ship Xena and Caesar in canon, because a) let's face it, Caesar is kind of a colossal douchebag and b) Xena and Gabrielle is so canon even I can't subvert it - if I have a femslash OTP, it's those two. So I'm seeing Star Trek as an epic opportunity for me to channel my Xena/Caesar urges in a productive direction.

(Of course, that then begs for a story where Jocelyn cheats on Bones with a hot little blond number, leading to the divorce...but I want happy Karl/Lucy Lawless! THEY ARE TOO HOT TOGETHER TO NOT BE HAPPY and I don't even care if that doesn't make sense or if Bones and Jocelyn are blatantly unhappy in canon, I will apply fanfic as I choose.)

Anyway. Jocelyn. Lucy Lawless. McCoy/ex reunionfic. It needs to happen.

I've also had another idea nagging me wherein Chapel is McCoy's ex. There could be awkward confrontations! Forced professionalism! An eventual reunion! IDEK, guys, I'm dwelling way too much on this. I might as well just write Kirk/McCoy and get it over with.

There are a few pretty awesome Xena/Caesar fanfics, if you're interested. :-)

Also, I am so down with any plan that gets Lucy into Star Trek. Jocelyn/hot-blonde-with-eerily-resembling-Renee-O-Connor OTP!

OMG YES LINKS PLZ? I am apparently incapable of finding anything that isn't Xena/Gabrielle

This seriously needs to happen. Someone (and that probably means me) needs to write Lucy!Jocelyn/Bones.

In the Afternoon's Roman Sun by [livejournal.com profile] rowan_d. This is set in the world of When Fates Collide, and Caesar and Xena actually seemed to be a working couple, in addition to a mind blowingly hot one.

Victor, Invictus. This fic steps into Caesar and Xena's minds at the end of Destiny. Kind of a downer, natch, but also very well written.

I'm a total slut for Caesar (see icon) and keep a list of Caesar-fic over on [livejournal.com profile] caesarlove, so check that out if you want more. Especially Caesar slash, because there's some awesome stuff with Caesar and Ares, Pompey, and even Cupid (especially dark AU Cupid). :-)

Here's one off the top of my head, which I got [livejournal.com profile] jaye_voy to make for me. Jaye Voy has the hots for Karl Urban like the sensible creature she is, and writes hot fic for almost all of Karl's characters.

Lucy Lawless in Trek is necessary. I loved her in Battlestar Galactica.

I almost forgot she was in BSG! Probably because I haven't seen a ton of that.

Honestly, I never cared much for her till BSG. Now I love her.

OH THANK GOD SOMEBODY CAPPED THIS. My hard drive just died and I had this episode on it. Also- the one with caveman!Urban? Bizarre, with weak plot, but hot. And the first one with him as Cupid was written by a thirteen year old boy.

Can I also take this time to mention I have a really strange thing about Roman men's haircuts? Just... something about the little bangs, it makes me go all gooey inside. Even Caesar being a megadouche did not stop me from wanting to play with his hair. (And the laurel? Why are they wearing a shrubbery?)

Yes, Lucy Lawless is a BAMF no matter what else is going on. Did you watch the ones where her and Gabrielle have a kid?

Genius! That totally needs to happen!

And I love Cupid!Karl best of all. I love seeing him be funny! (How weird is it that I've been watching Xena lately, too?)

wow. ::drools:: ok stop looking at Xena. . . ok I'm stopping. . . ::drools some more::

In all seriousness I think that would probably be pretty cool actually. For some reason I'm really digging the idea of McCoy with Lucy Lawless as Jocelyn looking more like this: http://static.tvguide.com/MediaBin/Galleries/Shows/G_L/Lq_Lz/Lword/season6/l-word180.jpg

I'm always shocked by how not attractive I find Karl as Caesar especially compared to him as McCoy which is just made of sex. Anyway I don't think I could write it but I'd totally read it.
