sophinisba: Gwen looking sexy from Merlin season 2 promo pics (toshiko by hermitsoul)
Good luck to my friends who are finishing up your Yuletide and other fest fics this weekend! Let me know if I can help you by betaing or talking through some ideas.

I dropped out of the one holiday fest I was in and I'm feeling guilty and sad and at loose ends. I'd like to try writing some drabbles to break out of my not-writing inertia. I would love some drabble prompts in any fandoms I know, especially of the short kind that have three words, one or two of which can be character names (ex. "Gwen Freya burn"), or else five thingses.

(I know that I didn't finish most of the prompts people gave me last time I did this and that there are thousands of requests at Yuletide and other places that I could be working on. Just, um.)

Other things I would appreciate:
-ideas for what to do with the "humiliation (in public)" and "piercings/needleplay" squares on my [community profile] kink_bingo card (suggestions of podficcable stories would be great)
-a heads up (could be an anon comment) if/when the [ profile] merlinfemfest entry made for me gets posted, so I'll know to thank the creator even if it's posted "for the community"
-recs from [ profile] merlinfemfest, [ profile] merlin_holidays, eventually [ profile] camelotsolstice, and other fests

-Look you guys, [personal profile] themadlurker wrote me a Leverage ficlet! It has Hardison and Sophie and nerdiness! What more could you want?! "I Was an Alien Babe of the Week and All I Got Was This Avery Brooks T-Shirt" on Dreamwidth and on LJ. :D :D

-[ profile] aiw_big_bang is a Big Bang for all (or at least most?) versions of Alice in Wonderland!

-[ profile] femslash_land looks neat. I don't really, like, understand what land comms are, but people who join them seem to have a lot of fun, plus this one has femslash, so yay!

-I've been watching Buffy season 2! It's sort of a rewatch and sort of not. I started watching Buffy when the third or fourth season was airing and eventually caught most of the episodes in syndication but not quite all of them, and I've never watched the whole series in order, so I'm enjoying making my slow way through it now.

I have different favorite characters now than I did when I was in college )

-I went and got a second [community profile] kink_bingo card, even though I know I'm not going to get any more points, just 'cause I figure it's nice to have extra prompts, and I guess you can only request them until the 31st (and if you've finished a bingo already).

Hey guys, what songs do you think of when you think of bound wrists?

[ profile] baranduin wants to fill the "bondage (wrist/ankle restraints)" square on her [community profile] kink_bingo with her first fanvid and is looking for music ideas. The subject would be Evgeni Plushenko, possibly paired with Johnny Weir, so I'd guess references to ice or cold or Russia would also be good, but the main thing is bondage. Please comment with your ideas!

Also, Merlin fans, please help me decide what to do with my "confined/caged" square! Poll on Dreamwidth only because crossposting them is too difficult. (Poll mentions noncon situations but only in a vague way.) ticky box )

Thank you!

Yesterday was the first check-in post at [community profile] ladiesbigbang and I took the opportunity to drop out of my podficcing project. :( It makes me sad because I still want more podfics of my favorite lady-centric Merlin AUs to exist, but at the time I signed up I hadn’t realized how difficult recording was (for me), plus my summer’s turned out to be busier than I thought it would be. [personal profile] trascendenza, your comm is still awesome! [personal profile] woldy and [personal profile] shiegra, I will still be there for you (although less so in July)!

But also yesterday sign-ups went up for [community profile] kink_bingo and I so cleverly enticed and impressed [ profile] baranduin and [ profile] hanarobi by showing them [community profile] kink_wiki that I also got [ profile] baranduin to sign up! Then today we convinced [ profile] claudia603 to join in too! :D :D Yay, I’m so glad to have some old friends doing this with me. (No offense, [community profile] kink_bingo kids, but a lot of you intimidate me! In a good way though! ♥ ♥)

ETA [ profile] hanarobi caved yay!!! /ETA

[personal profile] such_heights, who participated last year, explains why she likes this challenge and I'm excited for a lot of the same reasons. Most of my fics are shippy but not explicit or kinky, but I like challenging myself and stretching my ideas of what I can do. Also, though [personal profile] such_heights doesn’t mention this, I think the game format will work well for me, as [ profile] writing_game did for getting me to write lots of drabbles in lots of fandoms last year. I like the motivation of trying to get through the squares and the flexibility of choosing your route, without the pressure of a gift exchange. ([ profile] writing_game put up a new game a few days ago, by the way! Check it out if you’re looking for some drabble prompts.)

Here is my card and some thoughts about what I could do! only moderately safe for work )

Ha, [personal profile] glass_icarus put up the prompt collecting post at [community profile] camelot_fleet last week and I went to bed all angsty that night because it had only gotten two comments, but after a week we ended up with four pages of them, over 300 prompts. It was a lot of copying and pasting over the weekend omg, but I'm pleased with how the monster prompt list came out and hope a lot of people will end up actually doing something with them. modding thoughts and plans )

F-list, I'm feeling stuck on all the things I'm trying to write and would like to try doing some drabbles instead. Could you give me some prompts? I'd like just a few words including character names, rather than specific story scenarios. I'm mostly into Merlin these days but I can try old fandoms too (see my fic index if you don't know what they are), though probably not Casey/Zeke. (ETA: Also I've stopped watching Heroes and Supernatural./ETA) Rarepairs, crossovers, and/or characters of color would be especially nice. Alternately, link me to a short fic of yours and I'll write a short remix.
sophinisba: Gwen looking sexy from Merlin season 2 promo pics (gwen by infinitesunrise)
I don't often read in Buffy fandom but these two short fics caught my eye when I was doing some mod stuff at [ profile] remixthedrabble yesterday and I wanted to spread the word:
-The Next Generation by [ profile] kindkit (640w, rated teen), and
-To Boldly Go (The Remix) by [ profile] velvetmouse (508w, PG)
about Buffy, Dawn, and Joyce as Star Trek fans. Both really clever and fun and also touching, and a great example of remix adding something new to the original. Recommended for anyone who's a fan of fandom and of mothers and daughters. (Spoilers for Buffy and vague ones for Star Trek Reboot.)

Also here are two Merlin fics that have recently delighted me:
-A Cautionary Tale About Tomatoes (and zombies) by [ profile] netgirl_y2k (3,381w, gen with light shippiness), in which the OT4 fight zombies, Morgana in her nightie and Merlin armed only with cookware.
-For the Love of Arthur’s Armour by [ profile] slightlytookish (479w, rated G), in which Arthur gets jealous of how much attention Merlin pays to Arthur's chainmail.

Since my yoga class Monday night I've been entertaining myself dreaming about a Gwen-centric health club AU. I'm too lazy to actually write it but I still wanted to share the set-up. cast of characters and so on, no spoilers )

And now, a writing meme, gacked from [ profile] hyel:

Post the first line of a story here, and I'll write the next five. No context or prompts, just a line, and if I don't twig who it is then you'll get something slightly surreal back!

If you post the next up-to-five lines, I will try to keep it going.

An exception to the no-context rule is that I'd like warnings in the subject line for spoilers or consent issues. Let's do this, I think it'll be fun.

ETA: Feel free to jump in and write more on a thread started by someone else too. Stories can branch off in different directions. I'm just in the mood for playing around and writing collaboratively.

Today I did a little bit of writing on my second [ profile] lgbtfest fic and brought it over 1000 words (the fest minimum) so that is a nice milestone as always but it's nowhere close to being done and I don't know whether I can finish by my assigned date, which is this Thursday. fretting )

It's been exciting seeing the sign-ups for [ profile] remixthedrabble come in over the last few days, with some familiar names and lots of new ones. At this point there are a few who don't have any matches, but we've always worked something out in the past so I'm hopeful about this round too. I'm a little sad that so far no one has signed up with a remixable store of Merlin fics because that's what I'd most like to write, and I'm a bit embarrassed with the Merlin fics I have written and the idea of assigning some poor person to remix them, but, yeah, we'll work something out.

Anyway, it all makes me feel like writing drabbles (even though I shouldn't because I should be writing my gay Merlin fic and working on school stuff), so I would love drabble prompts, especially the three-word kind (one or two of the words can be character names) for, um, anything but Casey/Zeke (sorry), but especially Merlin, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, and/or Torchwood.

I think I'm going to try doing my taxes today. Wish me luck!

I would love it if you'd leave me some Merlin drabble prompts, gen or any pairing, also crossovers. I've started a couple of longer fics but I'm lacking confidence and the endings seem very far off. I like drabbles as practice because I can usually tell when they're done. :)
sophinisba: Gwen looking sexy from Merlin season 2 promo pics (pippin cheeky by danachan)
Drabble prompts, f-list! Any format, any fandom you're pretty sure I'm familiar with. (Also crossovers.) Hit me.

I'll write at least one hundred words each for (at least) the first five comments.
sophinisba: Gwen looking sexy from Merlin season 2 promo pics (pip and merry please by crazy_in_lost)
[ profile] trascendenza sent out the [ profile] remixthedrabble assignments on Tuesday and gave us the option of writing one, two, or three ficlets. I love that she is so flexible. So far I've done two and a half, and they're not due until the 20th. This is a very nice feeling, as I'm usually the kind of person to put off writing until very close to the challenge deadline.

I was thinking it could be fun to write some new drabbles and other ficlets in fandoms that I share with other regulars at the comm, because that will make me more remixable for future rounds and because writing ficlets is fun.

If you would like to help me out, there are two kinds of prompts I'm looking for: three words (one or two of them can be character names), or five things (as in, five things Aragorn would like to do to Frodo in bed, five ways Zeke gets romantic with Casey, etc.).

Fandoms: Harry Potter (most likely to actually get written), Heroes, Brokeback Mountain, Pan's Labyrinth.
sophinisba: Gwen looking sexy from Merlin season 2 promo pics (kaylee shiny by secret_nazgul)
Can anyone help me write some Firefly/Serenity drabbles? Same form of prompts as last time: three words, one or two of which can be characters.

I am still writing about hobbits. Those fics are longer and finishing them is harder, but I have plenty of bunnies already.
sophinisba: Gwen looking sexy from Merlin season 2 promo pics (sayid in charge by merry_holdwine)
Last night I came across a new LJ community called [ profile] fanficofcolor. It's a place to post or go looking for fics about characters of color since they too often get neglected and can be hard to find in other places.

[ profile] remixthedrabble is running a lightning round in which each participant will get matched up with three others! I loved playing in the first round and would love to sign up for this one as well but I'm a little worried that I'll be difficult for the mod to match. I'm certainly willing to write in a lot of different fandoms, but one has to have written at least three fics (which can include drabbles) in at least three different fandoms. I just barely qualify since I have exactly three ficlets (including one drabble) in the Firefly/Serenity 'verse. And my having a few Faculty ficlets probably won't help her much since I don't really expect any other Faculty writers signing up. :(

I was thinking though that I have two short Lost fics written and, really, how hard would it be to add one more drabble before I sign up? That way I could list four fandoms and maybe that would help. Sign-ups are open until the 18th. I'm not really sure what to do though. I started a Sun vignette a while back but it wasn't really going anywhere. I had an idea for a Naomi ficlet this morning but it's wanting me to fake my way through some British slang, which could be a real disaster!

So! Let's see if you can help me come up with something. I would love to get some Lost drabble prompts in three words each – either one or two of the words can be character names. Maybe if I can confine myself to drabbles I can actually write several of these in the next few days while also finishing that waymeet challengefic omg.
sophinisba: Gwen looking sexy from Merlin season 2 promo pics (kiss by itsapezwitch)
I'm not usually much for writing kisses, but this meme looks like fun so we'll give it a try. I saw it at [ profile] telesilla's journal:

Comment with two characters I write, and I'll tell you about their first kiss.

I'll add that they don't have to be characters I've written as long as they're fictional (sorry, Abfic) and you know I'm familiar with them. The two characters don't need to be from the same fandom.
sophinisba: Gwen looking sexy from Merlin season 2 promo pics (pip and merry please by crazy_in_lost)
From [ profile] almostnever and [ profile] oneangrykate:

Name a character and I'll tell you three (or more) facts about them from my own personal pseudo-canon.

This could be a canon character, an OC, or a version of a canon character from one of my stories (e.g., NotYourself!Pippin). Whatever fandoms you like.

I'm not actually feeling at all creative right now, but I am feeling kind of lonely, hence the spam. Here is a fun meme gacked from [ profile] schemingreader, [ profile] almostnever, and [ profile] kissing_athelas, among others:

Name three fics you think I will never, ever, ever write. In return (and if inspired), I will attempt to write a snippet of one of them.

ETA: I'm going out for a few hours. Thanks so much for coming to cheer me up, girls. Keep 'em coming, please. And feel free to write your own crack in the comments if you feel so inspired.

ETA: Back. Eh, who cares about term papers when there is crackfic to write?

A fic meme from [ profile] rubynye and [ profile] almostnever:

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

(Yes, I'm aware of all those requests from that other post. They're in progress. Really.)

Here is my fic index.

ETA: Okay, thank you for the ideas! I think I'll cut them off now and will try to do them all in drabbles.

It felt good posting the ficlet I did last night because it meant that I've completed all the challenges I signed up for this year (on time, even). If I promised you a drabble or ficlet and have not delivered, please let me know.

Otherwise, new requests please? Characters plus a little extra prompt (no holiday themes please) to get the creativity going? I haven't written much fic in the last month and I need to break back in somehow. Thanks!
sophinisba: Gwen looking sexy from Merlin season 2 promo pics (frodo thinking by alchemilla)
Yes, I know I still owe [ profile] gentlehobbit a drabble for the typos, and I owe [ profile] gamerchick and Easterlily drabbles from ages ago, and I didn't respond to most of the prompts you gave me on the Sam post, and then there's that challenge fic, and also that other challenge fic, and the WIPs, and the prompts communities, and [ profile] workshoppers, not to mention the fact that classes started yesterday and I have WORK to do, but, um...

The Five Things meme. Give me a topic and I will post responses in another post or, more likely, several other posts. LOTR, Faculty, Firefly. (And if you want to give me a prompt for another fandom, such as HP or lotrips, go for it. I just might not come through.) Go!
