So, in the light of the recent LJ kerfuffle about their updated TOS, and several people and comms moving to an only or primarily Dreamwidth mode, I decided to make an account here too. Don't worry, I don't intend to vanish from LJ! But if nothing else, it's always good to have a back-up I think... And since Dreamwidth enables automatic crossposting (which I am testing with this post), I'll be using that to keep everything on both sites up-to-date.

Now, in the spirit of 'different website, same elen', a meme borrowed as ever from [personal profile] lost_spook!

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

1. “Are you drunk?”

2. “You’re too young to hate the world.”

3. “I don’t want your pity, I want your absence.”

4. “We’re designed to be disposable.”

5. “There’s blood on my/your hands.”

6. “Could you be any louder?”

7. “I’ve never killed anyone before.”

8. “Your smile is not as bright as it used to be.”

9. “Don’t call me that!”

10. “Please don’t make me socialize.”

11. “Same time tomorrow?”

12. “I’ve been buying the wrong underwear.”

13. “How can anyone not be afraid of love?”

14. “You’re supposed to talk me out of this.”

15. “That was a perfect example of how not to do things.”

16. “If you want, we could go together?”

17. “I have contemplated becoming a hermit.”

18. “I’m alive… I can tell because of the pain.”

19. “Maybe you’re not thinking hard enough.”

20. “It’s 8:30, I have a hangover and you’re annoying me.”

21. “No one has a heart of stone.”

22. “Can I open my eyes yet?”

23. “So much for not getting involved.”

24. “I will if you will.”

25. “My nightmares are usually about losing you.”

26. “I didn’t intend to kiss you.”

28. “I didn’t lose it, I just misplaced it.”

29. “Prepare to be amazed.”

30. “I’m fine.”

32. “I’d ask you to stay but I don’t like you.”

33. “Something about you makes me want to commit extreme violence.”

34. “It’s not like I missed you or anything.”

36. “Everything was fine, until you showed up.”

37. “Can you just shut up for five minutes?”

38. “Never mind, the moment’s gone.”

40. “I believe you dropped this.”

41. “What are you doing in my house?”

43. “Why are you/we whispering?”

44. “If you really loved me there wouldn’t be a choice.“

45. “I think I made a mistake.”

46. “Shut up, I am a delight!”

47. “I can think of a million places I’d rather be right now.”

48. “Now, just hold on a minute...”

49. “It sounds like you’re trying to convince yourself.“

50. "Why does anyone have to be naked?”

And what better way to open up a journal than with a meme? Can I give you #2 and Grizel and Joey?

Aw, this is lovely! It's as if you lifted it straight from one of the earliest books. Joey's art! I smiled all the way through. <3

why on Earth did Joey always turn 'Madge' into 'my sister'? Wouldn't it have been much easier and less noticeable to turn it into 'Madame'? Although I suppose it would have been harder to convey it in writing than 'Mad - my sister'...

Yes, probably as you say, although also it's a fair point that Joey wouldn't automatically think of Madge first as Madame, so her hasty correct defaults to "my sister." Madame is what everyone else calls her. But I suspect you're right about some writing pragmatism in there!

And I wasn't sure which one would be hating the entire world - as you say, it's obviously Grizel, but Joey's mood swings also were a possiblilty. But it sounded like them together and thank you very much for this. :-)
