the shippiest gen post I've made since the shower game

And then I tried to do a prompt meme on tumblr, where they always look kind of floppy and out of their natural place...

for [personal profile] angel_gidget:BRAINIAC 5: 5 loves )

for [tumblr.com profile] inkstrangle: JOHN EGBERT: 5 loves, 4 lies, 2 shoes )

(The shoes aren't part of the meme, they were just what I made myself for my birthday.)

(They also glow in the dark, just to be sure you *know* I am a properly mature grown-up.)

Songfic

Ganked from [personal profile] happydork, as I've finished my last background meme:

Pick a number between 1 and 3731 (...I probably should clean that up), and I will write you a ficlet based on the song that corresponds to it in my iTunes collection. Ficlets may be very short.

Feel free to request fandom/pairings or not, as the whim takes you. First four requests will definitely get something, anyone else might or might not. (Though your odds go up depending on how relevant your prompt is to my interests.)

I am feeling all too cynical about human civilization at the moment, so, I think it is time for a distracting meme!

5 Things That Didn't Happen Meme: Give me a topic - eg, "Five glasses of wine Aziraphale didn't drink", "Five people Supergirl didn't date" - and I'll give you back a list. I guess you can ask me for 5 Things That *Did* Happen instead, if you prefer.

Fandoms on offer: DCU, Farscape, Good Omens, Nu!Who, nu!BSG, Grey's Anatomy, Ashes to Ashes, Sandman. Crossovers are fine.

Meme!

Who wants a sentence of porn? Perhaps it is you? If so, leave me a pairing!

Usually here I'll handwave a disclaimer about likely fandoms, but perhaps we have only recently met on DW and you would be left guessing at what I'm into! Just in case, here's a handy list:

DCU, White Collar, Farscape, Good Omens, Nu!Doctor Who & spinoffs, nu!BSG, Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes, Grey's Anatomy, Sandman, Star Trek: the new movie... or just about anything I've written before.

[personal profile] petra is doing limericks! And I am always up for silly poetry, so I am stealing.

If you want a limerick, leave me a prompt. If I'm not familiar with the source, I'll ask for a new prompt.

Snippets! From here.

for [livejournal.com profile] hannahrorlove: The one where Amanda Waller took over the world and became known as Supreme Earth Dictator. )

for [livejournal.com profile] daegaer: I'd also like to know about your story where Hastur and Ligur are popstars. )

for [personal profile] caia: The one where Amanda Waller is the non-Dox parent of EVERY DOX EVER. )

for [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory: The one where Linda and Kara met, in-continuity! )

I am out of questions, so I need a new background meme.

Tell me about a story I never wrote, (eg, "The one where Cristina Yang sucks at OT3s" or "The one told from the POV of Neal Caffrey's hat" or "The one where Alan Scott earns positive parenting points") and I'll write you a snippet from it.

As always, if you request something I'm not familiar enough with, I'll ask for another prompt.

Easter Egg Hunt

 
Comment with one of your icons, and I'll write you a story between 6 and 9 words.

What, you thought I'd have *chocolate*?

Totally productive solutions.

 
Okay, you guys! I am declaring a one sentence fic day! Gimmie two characters (I am familiar with), and I'll write you one sentence of fic.

I know it is traditionally one sentence *porn* day, but last time y'all took it as a challenge to outdo each other in the attempt to break my brain. So you will maybe get one sentence of porn or maybe get one sentence of, I dunno, dish washing adventures.

Prompt Request. Eventually.

Okay, so the problem is this. I want to write something - something *specific* - but I don't know what it is. My imagination is too taken up by mundane horrors; I have no room for plots. I am too frightened, surrounded as I am by the digital shadows of brilliant people. I am too cautious, too on-guard for signs betraying un-ironic earnestness. It is too easy to fall into a cycle between fannish ennui and a need for validation.

I used to write for myself. I used to write *stories*, and I've forgotten how to do that. I used to write love letters, but love has gone out of style, evolved into a game of counting hallmark comments and virtual kisses. Do you like me? Y/N, pick one, pick the first one, look how prettily I dance for you, and I'll only ever sing your name to a daisy with an odd number of petals.

I've forgotten what it means to live young in the wild countries of fandom, unmortgaged and untied. To make friends along the path and not worry about the politics of keeping them. I've nested too deep, settled too comfortably, built brick walls around my sleeping bag. I woke up one day in a society with a thousand written unofficial constitutions, and the forests are paved. I have obligations and I never even signed my passport.

But... that isn't the story I want to tell today.

 
Tell me what is.

Give me a prompt: a couple lines from a song would be favourite. An item and a vague sense of action. Something I can work with. Just no fandoms or characters or pairings; I am playing an association game today, and when you pose me a question you must give me room to answer.

And then... I will write something. Maybe just a sentence, but maybe something longer. And maybe it will be something you'll enjoy, but I promise not to worry very much about that.

And... maybe extra hand-holding is an unlikely solution to this problem, but it is all I can think of when I've forgotten how to let go.

Because I've had Sandman on the brain of late, and also could use a distraction at the moment...

Give me a character I am acquainted with, and I'll tell you which of the Endless they belong to.

mashed plz

I swear, this was going to be content. But it turns out I am not in the mood for a) depressing myself, b) hunting down scans, or c) any more swearing. Which leaves... randomly combining LJ memes for fun and/or profit. (Probably fun.)

Comment with one of your icons, and I'll write you a story between 6 and 9 words.

party favours

Does anybody want a surreal testimonial regarding themselves? If so, I can provide!

And/or provide an imaginary balloon. I have EXTRA.

Meme-atically Appropriate

 
A certain amount of time ago, I did a series of shower themed request ficlets. It turned out to be insanely fun! More fun than, for example, a Barrel of Monkeys (unless, I suppose, it was a Barrel of Monkeys *in the shower*). However, I've never really been able to follow it up, because it was hard to think of an equally gratuitous, mostly-gen cliche.

Until tonight. (Thank you, Black Canary Wedding Planner!)

So, then! Give me two characters and I will write them... underwear shopping together! They've got to be two characters I know, and also please no crossovers this time around. :)
