I don't think people will care but I'm a HUGE fan of crossover AUs. I've thought of a bunch over the years! That said, since older/t(w)even Elmabby has been my go to pairing for several years now when it comes to fic ideas, I've thought of concepts featuring them in a few more AUs than my other favorite fandoms lately.
But I just wanted to talk about'em a bit.
That said, below are some crossover ideas I've had for both SS and other shows:
Inuyasha/Hamilton- One of my faves. Inuyasha being what others see as an "arrogant, immigrant, orphan, bastard, hanyou". Other matchups: Kagome-Eliza. Sango-Angelica. Miroku-John Lauren's. Sesshomaru-Aaron Burr. Rin-Peggy. Taisho-George Washington. And more. I have an in-progress fic up on AO3, and a side blog on Tumblr dedicated to the AU (@youngscrappy-n-hungry).
KND/Lion King- OLD CROSSOVER I never finished that currently loves on FF.NET under my handles Foxierika. Fic title was "Nigrl Just Can't Wait to Lead!" Nigel-Simba. Rachel-Nala. Father/Ben-Scar. Monty-Mufasa. Abby-Rafiki. Hoagie-Pumbaa. Wally-Timon.
KND/Hamilton- Nigel-Hamilton. Abby-Angelica. Lizzie-Eliza. Kuki-Peggy. Chad-Aaron Burr. Wally-John Lauren's (fun because actually in the play Anthony Ramos plays John and Jasmine Cephas played Peggy, and Ant and Jas are a couple! 😁). Biggest draw for this one was the Nigel-Chad/Hamilton-Burr dynamic.
Sesame Street/SvTFOE- On SS, Abby's debut was that she was the new kid and in early episodes, Elmo was teaching her a LOT about the neighborhood and doing things without magic. In other words, she was basically a magic foreign exchange student and Elmo was "the safe kid." Starco anyone? And of course Maggie, Abby's mom, as Queen moon. (To expand, I started mapping out a fic with like the Muppets in it as well. Constantine was going to be Toffee and Gonzo was going to be Globgor. 😂 I did a comic of the scene where Elmo (Marco) tries to punch out Constantine's (Toffee's) heart when they think Abby (Star) is gone forever in the realm of dark magic. Like I said, I like pushing the envelope with them.
SS/Steven Universe- This one is kinda double loaded. I actually headcanon that Elmo does have Imposture Syndrome as he gets older. He was a famous child star and a lot of people/fans think he "ruined Sesame Street" and hate him, he knows this. That fact tears at him inside but he tries to hide it. But still others hold him in high regard and think he can do little to no wrong, and this puts a LOT of pressure on him. He also tries to take on a LOT and to excel in EVERYTHING he does--because he knows it's expected Elmo would be the kid "that does everything" and its stressful. So in THAT sense, I see a LOT of Steven in him. As well as the bubbly, optimistic personality Steven had as a kid. On the flip side, Steven is a magical being, so I also equate him learning how to use his powers to Abby learning how to use hers. And in that sense, Elmo would take more of Connie's role.
SS/Weathering with You- YOU HAVE TO WATCH THE MOVIE TO KNOW THE REFERENCE. But spoilers, the girl is magic and can control rain. The boy adores and try to protect her. Purely the whole "magic girl" drew me in as a tie in for this--but if you watch it and see the main character's chemistry, I can see Elmabby in it as well. Again though, with them as t(w)eens.
SS/Spiderman: Far From Home: AGAIN, YA'LL HAVE TO HAVE SEEN IT. Elmo as Peter Parker. Abby as MJ. Kermit as Iron Man/Tony Stark--Peter's mentor (because I can easily see Elmo as Kermit's protege from his SS days). Constantine as Mysterio--THE EVIL LOOKALIKE THING BETWEEN CONSTANTINE AND KERMIT. Sprinkle on that heartwrenching shocker of an ending for Elmo/Peter at the end and MAN what a ride!!!
SS/BNHA- I don't have any kind of fully fleshed out concept yet, but I once drew art of Elmo cosplaying as Deku and Abby cosplaying as Uravity. If I DID flesh this out the idea would be for The Muppets to be Pro-Heroes training the SS kids. (I.e. Kermit as AFO, etc.) By that same note, I was entertained the idea of a SS/Soul Eater AU with the same concept. I got about 3 chapters in before I hit a writer's block though and never got over it. 😅
Inuyasha/Your Name and KND Your Name- I've done fics for each of these, but basicslly: Inuyasha as Taki and Kagome as Mitsuha, them being separated by 500 years plays into the "time element" of what was 3 years for the movie. And for KND, Wally as Taki and Kuki as Mitsuha, but I used the GKND Invasion theory to mirror the comet that hit and destroyed Mitsuha's hometown. But both of those fics or in my Tumblr Masterlist.
So yeah!! Thess are the main ones I cycle through.
I also have a LOT of AUs crossing over characters from FRIENDS with my favorite shows. Too many of THOSE to name, tbh. But I can say for KND:
Muppets/Zootipia (after that episode where Piggy had her tail slip at that Zootopia premiere on ABC's The Muppets, I was inspired to try a fic where she and Kermit and the others higher Nick & Judy to solve a crime for them. Wrote the 1st two chapters, but never got it off the ground. It's also link to my Masterlist and is on FF.NET).
Inuyasha/Dark Tower- WATCH THE MOVIE. This concept had interested me for so long but I've never gotten around to fully mapping it out.
Inuyasha/Overboard- SAME AS ABOVE. 😭
Hey Arnold/Inuyasha- RANDOM. Lives on FF.Net. Completed two-shot. Helga in Inuyasha's role. Arnold-Kagome. Gerald-Miroku. Phoebe-Sango. Arnie-Kikyo.
Hey Arnold/FMA- Lives on FF.NET. Tragic One-shot.
KND/Inuyasha- OLLLLLLLLD. NEVER FINISHED. Lives on FF.NET. Pretty much KND Cast are fans of and literally mets Inuyasha characters after getting sucked into their Feudal Universe.
Like I said I have a few comics and fics and such line up for some of these.
And I don't get to talk about them much, but they live in my head rent free.
So, if anyone ever wants to learn more, don't hesitate to shoot me an ask! (I'd love to spazz about them!)
