Tropes and clichés!  
Inspired by my previous post about needing Cam slave!fic.

To help bluflamingo in case she does indeed decide to run a Cameron Mitchell ficathon we should list all of the fic tropes that poor Cam has missed out on.

- Slave
- Disabled
- Amnesia
- Psychic bond
- Telepathic

I know I don't know all the tropes, what are the rest?

ETA: These were contributed by the awesome folks in the comments. If there are others go ahead and comment with them and I'll add them to this list:

- Going through the Quantum Mirror causing them to Do Teh Sexxor for some reason.
- Being framed for some infraction, by enemies, and everyone believes it.
- Being framed for some infraction as a loyalty test from the SGC.
- Being captured and non-conned [on Earth] by an old enemy.
- Genderflip: Cam who's always been male is suddenly turned into a woman.
- Cam possessed by random alien of your choice
- Mpreg
- For some reason Cam either loses or begins to lose his faculties [not amnesia] or abilities.
- Muteness.
- Rapid aging/de-aging [not involving cloning].
- Apocafic: Cam and [insert name of hunk here] are the only survivors of Earth's destruction [set on Earth or an alien planet].
- Marooned with [insert name of hunk here] on an alien planet, not expecting rescue.
- Prostitution
- Physical bond to go with the psychic bond! I mean something like the Goa'uld bracelets Vala used in "Avalon". Or heck, handcuffs. You can never go wrong with handcuffs.
- Historical AUs: e.g. Cam is a nobleman in revolutionary France and Daniel is the Scarlet Pimpernel.
- Sex with an Unas!
- Cam or his lover gets snaked.
- Alien Aphrodisiacs
- High fever with resulting loss of inhibition.
- Bodyswap
- Cabin fic.
- Jammies fic. Flannel, footie, strange desings...
- Corporal punishment: giving or receiving a spanking in lieu of official disciplinary action.
- Crossover fic: Cam meets other characters Ben Browder has played, or Cam meets other characters the other actors in Stargate: SG-1 play or have played. Example: Cam meets the living starship Andromeda, and there's something oddly familiar about the AI's projection...

Um, you guys are going to do these on purpose? ;) What's the theme of this ficathon, anyway?

Looks like it! I mean it's a crime that he's been left out on the fun! Go check out the post on DW to see the list so far. *wg*

Have you tried looking over at the lists at cliche_bingo?

(Plus, I mean, with Cam disabled fic is almost canon - not that it isn't a fine cliche, but even without the Broken Wings verse and things, Continuum alone gave us some idea that he's not pieced together perfectly forever)

Sorry for not commenting much sooner. Thanks for pointing out cliche_bingo. :D

And you're very right about disabled fic, unfortunately that's one of things that I'm surprised that people haven't written more of. I've updated the list above if you'd like to check it out for any that's been missed.
