Meme

lost_spook: light + Ruth Evershed looking upwards (spooks - Ruth!)
Because I find myself in a fannish mood and not quite ready to write something, so, meme stolen from half a dozen people:

Give me a fandom and I'll tell you

the character I least understand
interactions I enjoyed the most
the character who scares me the most
the character who is mostly like me
hottest looks character
one thing I dislike about my fave character
one thing I like about my hated character
a quote or scene that haunts me
a death that left me indifferent
a character I wish died but didn’t
my ship that never sailed
lost_spook: (writing)
It's that time! Although other people seem to be doing a slightly different one, but that's the internet and memes for you; this one is my regular. Last year's results are here.

Guess which Yuletide fic ate all the kudos? )
lost_spook: (I Capture - writing)
Ganked from just about everywhere, although I always find it hard to imagine anyone wanting to have me waffle on even more about my fic, but maybe actually you are burning to ask me one of these questions and now you can, hurrah.

Here is my fic at AO3 (plus on Teaspoon, if you prefer) and Runaway Tales masterlist here. (I write too much, I know, but it's still never enough.)

Choose a fic and 1 (or more) question(s) from the list below:

1: What inspired you to write the fic this way?
2: What scene did you first put down?
3: What’s your favorite line of narration?
4: What’s your favorite line of dialogue?
5: What part was hardest to write?
6: What makes this fic special or different from all your other fics?
7: Where did the title come from?
8: Did any real people or events inspire any part of it?
9: Were there any alternate versions of this fic?
10: Why did you choose this pairing for this particular story?
11: What do you like best about this fic?
12: What do you like least about this fic?
13: What music did you listen to, if any, to get in the mood for writing this story? Or if you didn’t listen to anything, what do you think readers should listen to to accompany us while reading?
14: Is there anything you wanted readers to learn from reading this fic?
15: What did you learn from writing this fic?



(It should be said straight up that I do not have any opinions about what music you should listen to while reading my fic. I'm just ridiculously grateful that you are reading it. Srsly, meme, why would you? *sighs* One or two are definitely bizarre tumblr-fandom questions, it has to be said.)
lost_spook: (I Capture - writing)
My parents came and went (and sooner than expected! They told me they were going home Saturday and then I learned on Thursday evening they were going home in the morning! They forgot to tell me the bit where they changed their mind; honestly, what are parents coming to these days?) And now I am a little tired and probably have a bunch of other things to do (two fake shows, one mostly done, one started among various things), but hey, writing meme, plucked from the wilds of tumblr, because the other one like this worked well:

Send me two characters or more (pairing or otherwise) and a prompt number and I’ll write a ficlet:

Prompts under here )

As usual, no guarantees, but anything I know or have mentioned watching/reading/liking is fair game - I'll just say if I can't do it. (My interests and tags should be a guide.)
lost_spook: (dw - amy)
It's been a while (two a half three years), and I'm feeling fed up with never quite getting back to what passes for normal with me these days, so let's do this thing - let's play [livejournal.com profile] isurrendered again:

1. Comment to this post with "I surrender!" and I'll assign you the basis of some TV show idea. (Science fiction show, medical drama, criminal procedure, etc...)
2. Create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them.
3. Add in any actor photos, character bios and show synopsis that you want.
4. Post to your own journal.



If you haven't done this one before, it can be brain-eating and leave you pining for never-made (but strangely frequently cancelled) TV series. But it's fun and excellent for story ideas!
lost_spook: (I Capture - writing)
Via [livejournal.com profile] el_staplador, a new friend via the friending meme (*waves*), a new-to-me writing meme, and one that involves less work than usual. How could I resist?


Comment to this post with a fic title (a word, phrase or quotation), a fandom and, if desired, a character or pairing. I'll reply with a summary of the fic I won't write for that title, in this way generating plot-bunnies, gaiety of nations and perhaps even actual fic by other people.


(If coming up with titles is hard, there's always a title generator like this one, which seems pretty comprehensive in genre choice.)
lost_spook: (dw - amy)
Apologies for the spammage, but a friending meme for all those who like female characters of any kind (and making friends):



If you would prefer to go Dreamwidth side, check out the post at [community profile] halfamoon.
lost_spook: (I Capture - writing)
(I was going to do [community profile] fandom_stocking things at last, but I was feeling too rotten, so I pulled this out of my hidden posts in progress instead. I don't think anyone's getting stocking stuffers from me at this rate...)


Last year's results are here

Cut for considerable length )
lost_spook: (Default)
1. I've just done a friending meme and even actually managed to friend new people (I asked some of them myself!) (hi, new flisters!) and now of course, I am off to my parents' for Christmas, where internet access will be variable and most likely reading rather than commenting. Sorry about that.

Also because the next few posts following this will very likely be the one where I'm not here but I have to mention my Yuletide gift, the one where I'm back but exhausted, and then a wave of Yule-recs. So, um, yes, welcome? I will try and do something properly introductory in the New Year, though.

But I hope everyone who is celebrating Christmas has a lovely one, and anyone not celebrating manages to have a nice week despite any unwanted festivities! ♥


2. I nearly managed to finish the last writing meme before I went (because if I don't now, I won't) but I embarrassingly ran out of spoons with one left to go. (Sorry last person; once I cross that line, I cross that line. It was accidental!) I will have another writing meme soon enough, I'm sure. I might even get through all the prompts next time.

And here are the last three:Under the cut so as not to take up too much space )

Quickly, in my temporary break from Yuletiding, & in the continuing spirit of creating small nice things, let's see if I can manage some ficlet-y goodness before I return to editing and treating...

Take a pairing (or two or more characters), and put them in this random generator, then post your favourite resulting prompts (as many as you wish) in a comment below and I will try to oblige you by writing at least one of them.


As the generator only uses an "/" I'll assume you meant me to ship the pairing/moresome unless you tell me otherwise, so do note if you wanted gen/platonic/whatever. (Which doesn't, of course, prevent my results turning out accidentally gen anyway, but at least I know which to aim for.)

And while I've no objection at all to crossover pairings, please none where it requires time travel if neither canon has that as an option. (I have burned out on this temporarily at least. Even for B7, there's only so many times you can claim Orac accidentally invented time travel when bored. Well, possibly not, but spare me this meme round!)


*looks round at flist hopefully*
lost_spook: (b7 - Vila)
1. I've been enjoying making icons for people (and I am still doing them, if you're still waiting, or belatedly wanting to put in a request). I also have managed to at least get my Yuletide fic into a proper first draft form, so now I hope to be a better and less absent flister again! (I shall try!)


2. And, again, in the interests of further avoiding RL and enjoying fannish chatter, a meme (stolen from all round the place): Give me a character and I'll tell you my:

First impression
Impression now
Favorite moment
Idea for a story
Unpopular opinion
Favorite relationship
Favorite headcanon


(Who knows if I even have answers for most of these for most people? Let's find out...)

My Yuletide letter is finally in a better state and only needing some very minor tweaks. Hurrah! And just in time - sign-ups are now open!

This week I managed two more crossover ficlets for the Crossover Meme (I am aiming to get them all done by the time Yuletide assignments go out; if not, I shall have to write them off):

Time for the answers! \o/ (Between this and more family history, I must await more spoons before catching up & commenting again, but I will. In the meantime, wacky crossover nonsense awaits...)

15 Characters Reveal )
lost_spook: (b7 - Vila)
I stopped posting and commenting again, for most of the same reasons, and some more. Sorry - summer! (Even when it's not even hot). However, I get really funny and crawl somewhere inside myself when I don't post and comment, which is really not good, BUT now I have been reminded of a thing I can post!

It has, after all, been about 6 months since I last did the 15 Characters Meme...


1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your f-list to post questions in the comments. For example: "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?", "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?", "Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?"

3) After your f-list has stopped asking questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.



(Also I may try to do a What I'm Reading post. Possibly even on Wednesday (today, gosh). I did mean to do it more than once a year, but I've already failed on that point.) I hope everyone else is well. I am sorry, I didn't mean to go away and ignore you all again. It wasn't that I didn't care. Just spoons (lack of), summer, dentists (only the usual kind) and more family history.
lost_spook: (b7 - Vila)
The first two results of the conversational crossover meme. (And years may have passed since the last time I did it, but I still fail on the 'no explanations' part, but I refuse to be sorry for that!)


For [personal profile] swordznsorcery: Evy Carnahan meeting Dayna Mellanby. (Blake's 7/The Mummy):

Entombed )

And for [livejournal.com profile] liadtbunny: Georgina Jones meeting Vila. (Adam Adamant Lives!/Blake's 7).


Wrong Number )
lost_spook: (dw - amy)
I decided my writing gears needed a bit of a kick start and hunted out the tried and tested poetry meme. The quotes were especially random this time, but it still worked:

1: Pick five fandoms. List them in alphabetical order.

2: Visit this site to find your first RANDOM POEM OF POWER. Write down the 5th line (yes, even if it's an E.E. Cummings poem and you wind up with an apostrophe). Repeat five times and - you guessed it - list 'em in alphabetical order! (No cheating, mind! This is a challenge and it's always been about creativity.)

3: I think you can see where this is going. Write a very quick 50-word half-drabble for each fandom (try to do it all in one sitting - make your brain explode!), using the line from the poem as a prompt. You don't have to include it in the half-drabble - it's just inspiration.

4: Bravo! Have a cookie.

It's been six years since I last did this, so let's give it a whirl & get something cheerful out of this week!

As ever for something like this, I'll take prompts from anything I know (my interests and tags will probably give you a clue, but anything else you think I might know - I'll let you know if I don't or really can't for any reason):

Give me two characters from different fandoms you know I'm familiar with, and I'll give you a dialogue happening between the two of them. Without justifying how the crossover would work, how their worlds clashed or how they could even meet each other. Just a silly crossover conversation with no backstory, for fun.

An AO3 Meme I found going around, and I can rarely resist an AO3 meme. Mind, this one is going by the top tags in the sidebar, which tend to be more than a bit skewed, but hey...

Summary: “Who crawls through someone’s window at 4am to go for ice cream?!”
lost_spook: (I Capture - writing)
I no doubt shouldn't be doing this (I have yet to write my Not For Prime Time fic, although, yay, I finally have a proper idea & it should happen soon), but this is apparently the other half of the meme I did last month & it looks like fun, so...

The usual rules apply - send me a number and a pairing/two or more characters and get a drabble or ficlet if I'm feeling so inspired.

(As ever, anything I know is fair game; my main fandoms are in my interests, my tags have even more & if you happen to pick something I'm not feeling up to, I'll just say so.)


51. “What the hell are you wearing?”
53. “Who crawls through someone’s window at 4am to go for ice cream?!”
54. “I don’t hate you. I could never hate you. That’s the problem.”
55. “Our first date is a picnic on a beach under the stars? Have you swallowed a romance novel? Do I need to call a doctor?”
56. “I can’t stand the thought of losing you.”
57. “Teach me to fight.”
58. “I’d die for you. Of course, I’d haunt you in the afterlife but really, it’s the thought that counts.”
60. “Before you decide to murder me, let me explain…”
61. “I love you. I’m completely and utterly in love with you. Please don’t get married.”
62. “It’s only one night, we’ll just share the bed.”
63. “Stop running from this. I know I’m not the only one who feels it.”
64. “Are you ticklish?”
65. “I wish you could see yourself the way I see you.”
67. “Of all the people I could’ve gotten stuck in an elevator with and it just had to be you.”
68. “PILLOW FIGHT!”
69. “Why the hell are you bleeding!?”
71. “Kiss me, quick!”
72. “I will knock you on your ass if you even think about it.”
73. “We shouldn’t be doing this.”
74. “Don’t let go.”
75. “I’m going for a swim. Do you wanna join me?”
76. “I need you to pretend we’re dating…”
77. “There was never a choice.”
78. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have kissed you.”
79. “That’s the third time I’ve saved your life!”
80. “How can you think I’m anything but hopelessly in love with you?”
81. “I need you to leave.”
82. “This is all your fault! I can’t believe I listened to you!”
83. “It’s always been you.”
84. “I’m dying.”
85. “I will never apologize for saving your life, even if it costs me my own.”
86. “I guess dying with you isn’t the worst way to go.”
87. “You were never just my friend.”
88. “Don’t panic but I think we might have accidentally gotten married…”
89. “I’m not leaving you!”
90. “I can’t do this anymore.”
91. “I remember everything.”
92. “What do you want me to say?”
93. “I tried, but I just can’t stay away from you anymore.”
95. “There’s no going back if we do this.”
96. “I never thought you’d hurt me but I was wrong. You hurt me the most.”
99. “We’re in an abandoned lodge in the middle of nowhere. Sure, you’re totally right, nothing bad could ever happen here.”

(I deleted some numbers/quotes. There were plenty, after all.)
