01. put your music player on shuffle
02. the first lines of twenty songs = a poem
03. the first line of the twenty-first song is the title.

"Been Working So Hard"

You talk tough to me
Is it the wind?
Some days aren't yours at all
Can you feel it?
I'm watching sis go pitter pat

No more questions
I've paid my dues
In the still of the night
I've got a girl and Ruby is her name
No one mourns the wicked

What have we done?
There are giants in the sky
If you're feeling lost in the darkness
I've got a handful of songs to sing you
This was the last chance I would give

This is hard to say
Go to sleep
So many nights I have stood in the moonlight
Forgive, sounds good
We have all the time in the world

From [ profile] featherjean:

Please comment with one word. (Scrabble rules do not apply - the word can be a person, place, or slang.)

I will write a drabble-ish length reply. It might be fic, it might be original, it might be memory, might be, I don't know, a definition? A recipe? A made-up word origin?


Guess what this is, children?

Answers up now, so [ profile] utah_yoda doesn't go insane.

From [ profile] featherjean:

1. Put your iPod/iTunes/music on shuffle
2. DO NOT write down the lyrics of the first 10 songs to come up.
3. Describe what the song is about. Be creative.
4. Cross out the songs when your friends guess them in the comments.

If you like, when you guess correctly, I'll make you an icon or graphic of your choice.

I've tried not to include anything too obscure and nothing in a foreign language.

This is hard. )

It's another meme! From the lovely [ profile] joonscribble (again).

Pick a paragraph (or any passage less than 500 words) from any fanfic I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

You can find my fics via memories (not up-to-date) and tags (links to the left).

Another Meme (of the awesome variety)

From the lovely [ profile] joonscribble.

1. Write down the names of 10 characters.

2. Write a fic of fifteen words or less for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers. Do NOT read the prompts before you do step 1.

The Characters

2. Malcolm Reynolds (Firefly)
3. Tony Stark (Iron Man)
4. Cal Lightman (Lie to Me)

15 words or less. )

First, from [ profile] joonscribble

Comment with what you believe I should write next. A drabble? A oneshot? An epic? The next chapter of a WIP from ages ago? Want to see me write in an old tried and true fandom or dip my toe into a different fandom I've praised but have yet to fic? Specific character? Specific genre? Give me your suggestions and poke my Muse.

Next, from [ profile] featherjean

Give me a fandom I'm in, a character or pairing (or threesome/whatever), and a prompt (word, image, phrase, poem, reference, whatever) and I'll give you something creative made of words. (Meta? A line of fic? A paragraph? A drabble? A ficlet? A full story? We'll see.)

Because these are all I pose these days...

Memes soothe a frazzled soul, so I went looking for one to help ease my computerless pain. I am typing in Notepad on my 'rents' computer and it doesn't look right! The font is wrong and the screen is stretched out. But I will persevere for the good of meme kind.

1. Choose a few of your own characters. Five at the most.
2. Make them answer the following questions.
3. Then tag three people.
4. Feel free to go ahead and add some questions yourself!!

Characters playing:
Dr. Forrester
Fay Dresden
Dylan Cartwright

Questions! )

From [ profile] joonscribble:

Give me the title of a story I've never written, and feedback telling me what you liked best about it, and I will tell you any of: the first sentence, the last sentence, the thing that made me want to write it, the biggest problem I had while writing it, why it almost never got posted, the scene that hit the cutting room floor but that I wish I'd been able to salvage, or something else that I want readers to know.

For anyone needing clarification: you make up the title of this fic I never wrote and what you liked about it. I'll take care of the rest. (thanks to [ profile] joonscribble for the clarification, too)

Choose your genre show, answer the questions using episode titles from that show--if possible, don't repeat any.

Is due South a genre show? What is a genre show? )

Still not getting comments. How can I be a comment whore if I don't know when I have comments?
