Heh. This'll be great for first-wave metafic. For the second wave, deal in all the crossovers... hardsuited kage bunshin tossing batarangs that splash DE targets with Jusenkyo waters, then collect up the resulting mice into hammerspace...
"hardsuited kage bunshin tossing batarangs that splash DE targets with Jusenkyo waters, then collect up the resulting mice into hammerspace..." Ummm, no. LOL! There won't be any anime/manga crosses in my story, and while I won't automatically rule out Harry getting another familiar, it sure as hell won't be a pikachu, etc. :D
As far as using crossovers goes, I wouldn't be surprised if Bruce doesn't start suggesting some more interesting trainers for Harry generated by the room.
For example, how about Clint Eastwood from Heartbreak Ridge as a physical ed instructor? (or maybe Arnie?) Learning some martial arts from Jean Claude Van Damme? How about learning how he might use the Room more effectively from the original holoaddict; Reg Barclay? I suspect that like Reg, he wouldn't mind getting some counselling from an attractive Betazed, maybe learning how to block her empathic ability from her, or perhaps Spock?
The skies the limit really, since thanks to Bruce we aren't limited to Harry's timeframe and what he is aware of.
I doubt any of that (if actually used) would be mentioned much more than in passing. The biggest problem I'm going to have with this story is to try and keep it Harry-centric, but that's what I want to end up with if I can.
