How about the other assassins?
How do you think, what characters from other franchises are assassins or Assassin descendants and why?
My bets are on Riddick (descendant, increased agility + eagle vision), Daredevil (descendant, eagle vision +hand to hand combat + parkour, he was trained but left the creed over how he interpreted the code, let's say he is very serious about "stay your blade from the flesh of the innocent") and Robin Hood (because he fights a corrupt tyranical asshole and wears a hood)

Is Anyone Still Around?
Is this meme dead? I thought it would come back a bit with AC: Syndicate, which is a lot of fun and has some great protagonists in the Frye Twins, but it seems like no one is around. Is anther AC Kink Meme around? Have people migrated elsewhere? Hello? *hears echo in empty chamber*

Mostly complaining about AC but with fill links
If you're okay with angst, alcohol, and PTSD (according to the tags), why not this fill on AO3? http://archiveofourown.org/works/3364385/chapters/7358210

(Tangent: Not an art fill in not being Shaytham, but do I really need an excuse to post "Templar model opera"? http://sunsetagain.deviantart.com/art/Templar-s-model-opera-495705947 )

This isn't to say that we've all (entirely) parted ways, but I think a lot of us realized that we were very much into a greatly different direction than Ubisoft took the series (see the most recent comment thread in Discussion! Come join us for cookies! http://asscreedkinkmeme.dreamwidth.org/1339.html?thread=12319803#cmt12319803 )... plus for me personally, Brotherhood felt like the last game where the Assassins got to actually have a (however-long) lasting win, and every other game since was about forestalling the eventual Templars-globally-dominant situation of 2014.

As for Rogue... for me ironically Haytham was the biggest downer about it (besides the seeming mechanical retread of Black Flag) if only because his presence cemented the belief that AC3 had always been meant to be Haytham's story in the writers' hearts (there's no other way that I interpret the existence of Forsaken) and Connor was just treated as an inconvenience to be written around and then subsequently relegate to cursory mentions... despite Connor basically being the only "Assassin at heart" since Ezio.

Oh wait, Ubisoft doesn't seem to like to write those, even when they try to write Arno as Ezio 2.0 but just ended up with Straight White Dude #4...

Re: Not OP, but thanks for finding the idea interesting!
Mmmhmm... as it stands, in canon Shaun only questioned Desmond's allegiance after Lucy's death, so perhaps you could have it be that Shaun and Rebecca don't know about Lucy by the time of your story? What they know about William, I defer to you... but I'm reminded of al-Mualim, what with William having been "global" Mentor.

As for the rest of your reply, would you find it objectionable if I were to quote/reply in the AC Character Discussion comment thread in the Discussions page? The thread was pretty heavy on the Connor talk, but I'm happy to encompass the whole of the AC idea in it, and I've a lot that I wanted to say in reply but which'd be quite off-topic from the Templar!Desmond idea.

Egad
Finally someone who agrees with me about 19th century Britain as "overrepresented"... and "especially if we get a male main playable of privilege"? That plus "British is trendy" will probably make Ubisoft MORE likely to go with such a player character, especially because "of privilege" screams Ezio to them, and considering how hard they tried to jam Arno into that mold without the personality which made Ezio actually liked... :/

I'd call Lucasfilm's case a mix of reboot and canonicity policy change, because instead of an EU they're going for a single canon level, no "single most canon", so for example Rebels and its prequel novel happened "as much" as the original movies did.

By the way, I've some more ruminating on the recent characters over in Discussion as "AC Character Discussion (forking from the Hope/Shay thread)", hopefully some of it interests you.

Re: Shay/Hope - angry sex
Then again maybe not, because as soon as some fans complained about Connor being boring they dropped him like a hot iron, nevermind that he's easily one of the most complex characters in the series. And now Ubi is selling us a game full of really dumb glitches while going on about how state of the art it is, with a protagonist that's more or less Ezio 2.0 right down to the hairstyle. "Ezio 2.0" was THE first thing I noticed about Arno without the hood... however, Darby McDevitt admitted on Twitter that although AC3 had been the highest-selling AC game, the 'universal' praise that supposedly only Ezio got what was got him three games to everyone else's one-and-done. (Personally, I wonder if him being the only 'straight white male' player Assassin until Edward had anything to do with that... and I'm actually still annoyed that there was never a playable Chinese male Assassin.) The glitches are funny because of how frequently visual they've been, but a more fundamental problem for me with Unity is the story: #1: Arno: All the "Ezio 2.0" look, none of the "Ezio 1.0" charm, and characterization-wise... let's just say that there's a good fucking reason he ended up as he did. #2: Both of this year's AC games basically concluded with the Templars going "neener neener i win lol"... problem is, according to Ubisoft they were well and completely right (if not morally). More broadly speaking though, Ubisoft seems to really, really prefer telling stories about Templars than Assassins... and possibly have since AC3 (if one chooses to read the difference in Connor and Haytham's writing that way).

This isn't a kink, but a heartfelt request for written justice...
As a part of a project in University, we are required to do a report on the current history of our mother nation. My Father is Palestinian. And as such I was required to report upon the horrible things that the Ireali's have done to the Palestinian people. I'm pretty sure that this project has made me Anti-Sematic. I can't even look at a friend of mine in the eye anymore because she's a Jew. And you want to know what makes this worse? My Mother is Iraqi. I dug throughout the "war", a war that I had believed was justified. But the further I dug the more disgusted I became with the country I was born and raised in, the U.S. The shit finally hit the fan, when I saw this: http://www.thewe.cc/weplanet/news/americas/us/war_crimes_fallujah.html I read it. All of it. I read it and I cried uncontrollably, and vomited, and lost weeks of sleep over this. And every patriotic bone in my body. (...)

It's so quiet here
People suddenly stopped posting new prompts about a week or so ago. I couldn't help but wonder whether everyone have lost their mojo for AC, or everyone are sitting quietly and waiting to see how Brotherhood will impact the fandom before they come up with new ideas. I am very much hoping it's the latter.

Payback
Hate to add yet another unfilled meme, but... We may enjoy putting the Assassins through hell and back in these memes... but to be honest, part of what we like about the Assassins is that they're survivors whose response to hitting rock bottom is to bounce right back up fighting. And if someone messes with them or with someone they feel they need to protect, they will kill that person. So. Take any of the "Assassin tortured/raped/forced in some way by an enemy" memes that have been floating around, and write a follow-up where he escapes, brushes the dirt and blood away, picks up a sharp and pointy object, goes back, and makes sure that whoever did it will not be able to do so again. (No lowering themselves to the attacker's level "rape-revenge" here, though. Just a cold, efficient assassination.)

Dear new anon, Will you please stop spamming us in our Inbox's with your incredibly enthusiastic comments? It's getting overwhelming, tedious to sift through to see if anyone has any fic' and or pic' responses to their prompt. Commenting is fine, but will you please CALM DOWN. 20-40 comments? Seriously? -End of rant. Enjoy your day, everyone.

Re: The Order is now ISIS (just read the discription)
Istanbul truly is a beautiful map. Along with wizened oldzio and quirky Yusuf, it's probably random!non's favorite too. Not sure though, because Damascus was full of life for me too. Just, be forewarned, OP. ACIII has bland colors and a cold, serious attitude. Only like three scenes made me laugh in the entire game. Connor is almost lifeless, as well. There is nothing fun to climb, and all you have to do is hold R1. Combat is overly simplified. Black Flag may be colorful and have a more than a few funny bits, (they're pirates. I'd be mad if there weren't funny bits) but as before, nothing fun to climb (climbing controls even more simplified, same goes for combat) and a general sense of detached-ness. Not to mention the tears I shed constantly. Boats were fun though. But the worst thing I have to say about them is the modern storyline. Seriously, OP, if you care about the moderns and Desmond, STOP PLAYING THE GAMES NOW

I have a suggestion to the mods of kink meme. I see that the unfilled : filled ratio is getting way, way big. May I suggest a no-request fill-only weekend/days event? I think controlling the amount of unfilled prompt ration is the key to keeping a healthy kink meme that actually gets things done. Besides, if writefags' prompts go by unfilled for too long, they'll get discouraged and stop writing. That's bad news for everybody. Also, to demonstrate that I indeed practice what I preach: if any writefags have prompts you want to see filled, please comment here and I'll try to take a crack at a ficlet or two this weekend or the following two days. :> I haven't played AC2 yet, though, so AC1 probably will be for the best.

SUGGESTION: Tags in the subject line?
So there's a lot of posts here and I just would be curious to get a show of hands if anyone else wants this suggestion. Crack prompts in one form or another seem to constitute the vast bulk of this meme these days. My suggestion is can we work out a tag scheme to put in the subject line or something? Would it be too difficult to ask people to categorise their posts? Like... CRACK/MODERN AU: Malik takes baby!Ezio to basketball practice CROSSOVER: That Ezio/James Bond thing on p27 (an EPIC fill btw \o/ ) CRACK/CROSSOVER: The Damascus Rafiq must catch all the Pokemon to win Bartolomeo D'Alviano's heart SUGGESTION: Tags in the subject line? GENERAL: Claudia wants better blade skills but Ezio doesn't take her seriously as a fighter. She asks one of his recruits for help. You know, shit like that... lots of forums have that kind of thing, so I can distinguish between something I might fill, and a prompt about Federico fondling Kadar in the queue at Walmart.

I hate to be that guy, but........
The prompt-to-fill ratio is getting ridiculous. I myself am currently juggling five separate fills to try and make up for it, but they just keep coming. Please, us fill!anons can't take it anymore. Is there a way to temporarily disallow prompts (for a week at the least)? There are a ton of wonderful prompts I would love to fill, but I'm getting overwhelmed. And before you know it, part 3 will be closed. I just want everyone to get what they ask for (or at least as many as possible).

QUESTION to AC Kink Meme community:
Sorry this isn't a prompt but I have something I've been wondering about and wanted to ask the AC Kink community for their opinion/what's correct and polite for a while: What can you do when you're getting a fill but then all of a sudden its stopped/discontinued/never finished? For example I have a prompt what was being filled and seemed like there would be one final part and then it would be completed, but then it stopped (like there's 4 posted parts and the 5 was the ending) April was when the part was posted, I've left encouraging comments but still nothing. And I totally understand Real Life and things happens, filler!anon is under no obligation to finish and things like that....but still a little part of me would like an ending/not having to keep checking hopelessly for a fill I spend a fair bit more time in another kink community where the polite/fair thing was deemed "leave an encourageing comment and maybe that will get filler!anon going. If nothing still happens another a month or two repost the prompt". What do you, the AC Kink community, think? Keep waiting? Deal with its never going to get an ending? Repost original prompt? Prompt a "please finish this" Any other ideas/opinions? I should have no asked something so selfish in the first place?

A note for writers on our characters' names :)
Disclaimer: I got all of my information from Wikipedia and the AssCreed Wiki. I don't speak Italian or Arabic. I'm just obsessed with details and tried to find them out. 1. Leonardo Leonardo doesn't have a last name in the modern sense - "da Vinci" just means "of Vinci", the same way "da Firenze" means "of Florence". This means it seems to me that it is about as weird to write this: ...da Vinci was forced to build war machines for the Borgia... as it is to write this: ...da Firenze gathers his forces in Roma, all the while goading Cesare Borgia to make tactical mistakes... or this, which I seem to recall occurred in Men in Tights, but I can't confirm it right now: (...)

Another problem has arisen, anons.
I can only hope that I'm not the only anon who regularly goes back to kink memes 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. I fill stuff often back there (Because that's where you get all the good Ezio prompts that aren't EZIO/LEO EZIO/LEO ERMAHGURD GERSS WERT EZIO/LEO [No offence to anyone who likes them. I'm just more into het.]) But obviously, I don't get many comments. I feel like we should have at least one comment per new page where author!anons who are stuck in the past like myself can get some credit and love. Someone posts a comment for it, and stuckinthepast!anons (Isn't that what AC is about? The past? I MADE A PUN) can reply the original prompt and a link to the fill, maybe?

THIS IS IMPORTANT. TOO MANY UNFILLED PROMPTS, GUYS.
What it says in the title. There are way too many unfilled prompts in this kinkmeme, especially in this particular part. Come on, guys. It's fun to prompt, but it's also fun to fill! Let's make it so the ratio of unfilled and filled prompts isn't so uneven. Since part six isn't very huge yet (only 15 pages), let's try to fill as many prompts as we can on the previous pages before prompting anymore, alright? At least four out of five of them or something. Or we'll have loads of pages of prompts with nothing to read!

Conspiracy theory, TROLOLOL
You know, as I learn about history, particularly the 20th century, I see so many people who could have been Assassins/Templars. I don't believe in the whole conspiracy theory, obviously. But I muse about it sometimes, about a huge plot with Pieces of Eden and a millennia-old fight between two groups of people and a ton of moderate/extremist organizations, to boot. So, I'd like to start a discussion thread strictly about the real world (references to AC canon are fine) and a possible conspiracy theory. I just want to see how far we anons can go down the rabbit hole of historical cover-ups. Please, please, please, no AC3 references, because a huge majority of fanons haven't played it, including me. Let's do this, guys.

Since Ubisoft changed canon so Haytham was never an Assasssin...
Now that the Forsaken book is being treated as canon and Haytham no longer defected from the Assassins to the Templars, can we get a fic about why Haytham is wearing the broken assassin symbol and eagle cuff. Did Reginald want to have some kinky enemy roleplay sex with Haytham and he just never bothered to take it off or what? Preferably an early twentyish something Haytham and experienced!Reginald.
