New h/c bingo card!

I'm almost certainly going to sign up for [community profile] rarepairfest, once I finish getting my signup written. Probably with Agent Carter, Guardians of the Galaxy, and ... I'm still figuring out a third one that sounds fun. Supergirl? White Collar?

I have also acquired an h/c bingo card! This is round 8, which means it's been going on for 8 years (omfg!). And I've been doing it almost every year. I think there was a year in there I didn't do it, and there have definitely been years I haven't completed a bingo (and one year I blacked out my card - though admittedly it took me 'til the amnesty period to do it), but in general, I really look forward to getting each year's card. So here is this year's.

dystopia alien abduction loss of job / income nervous breakdown restrained
secret identity discovered counseling scars hospital stay loss of voice / forced silence
dungeons headaches / migraines WILD CARD body / mindswap brainwashing / deprogramming
lacerations / knife wounds hostile climate cages arrest healers
self-harm haunted lost childhood attacked by a creature drowning

Gotta admit my first reaction to this card was "meh", but there are some squares I can work with, and not too many DNWs! I do have to say that "alien abduction" would've been terribly difficult ... up until a month ago when I got into a fandom in which being abducted by aliens is actually the inciting incident that set off the entire plot. So, yeah, twist my arm and make me write fic about bb!Peter. What a hardship. <3

GotG also has the advantage that most of the characters have tragic/horrible enough backstories that I could probably do this entire card, or at least most of it, just with their canonical trauma ...

Here's my usual bingo card recoloring to help me prioritize. Green squares are the ones that appeal to me most, and/or that I already have ideas for. Red are hard ones. Brown are neutral.


Looks like I should focus on one of the bottom two rows, or the middle vertical column ...

I quite like your card! I've in the past used "self-harm" for any sort of reckless or self-sabotaging behaviour, from knowing your faves in the past I imagine you might know a couple who fit that bill?

Voting Supergirl! I was going to say that could solve your "alien abduction" problem but you already got there.

How do you do the recolouring anyway?
