Borrowing another meme from [personal profile] lost_spook !

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

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:

Wild West
Coffee Shop
Shapeshifters
Pirates
. . . In SPACE!!
Born Another Gender

I did this yet again... It really is a fun meme!

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.

Borrowed this one from [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook - there's a test to identify your favourite tropes here. My list is:

1 Friends to Lovers
2 Seemingly Unrequited Pining
2 Hurt/Comfort
4 Fake Dating/Fake Marriage Accidentally Turns Into Feelings
4 Soulmate Identifying Marks: Tattoo, Red Thread of Fate, etc
6 Enemies to Friends to Lovers
7 Trapped in an Elevator/Snowed-In Cabin/etc
7 Found Families
9 High School/Uni AU
10 Fake Out Make Out
11 Magical Connection (telepathy, etc)
12 Royalty/Arranged Marriage
12 Adopting/Raising a Baby
12 Coffee House AU/Food Service AU
12 Actually Unrequited Pining
12 Role Reversal AU
12 Amnesia
12 Sex Pollen
12 Loyalty Kink
20 Espionage AU
20 Rivalmancy
20 Vampires/Werewolves AU
23 'Groundhog Day'/Karmic Time Warp
23 Incest
23 Reincarnation/'25 Lives' AU
23 Selfcest (possibly due to time travel)
27 A/B/O
27 Age Difference (possibly due to time travel)

Top 3 are definitely right! I'd switch Soulmates and Found Families around, and I don't actually hate Age Difference within reason, I've no idea how it wound up at the bottom.

There will be an actual proper post soon, these are just a lot faster to make ;)

I actually listed everything in alphabetical order for once! (I did skip one, though - because it was prose at the beginning, so I wasn't sure which line would actually be the fifth.)

Chalet School: And if to miss, were merry, (If recollecting were forgetting, Emily Dickinson)

Putting down Nell’s letter, Hilda laughed till tears rolled down her face - her partner’s sharp sarcasm had been in full flow over the latest happenings in the Oberland. As she folded the letter, though, her face grew sad and longing. All Nell’s most amusing writing couldn’t compare to her presence.

Harry Potter: Never did she lisp it— (Morns like these—we parted, Emily Dickinson)

In Flitwick’s experience, there were always more first-year Ravenclaws vying for front row desks than desks available, usually split between those genuinely interested, and those trying to be proper Ravenclaws. But this straggly-haired girl didn’t fit either… then he read her name, heard her carefully match his pronunciation, and understood.

MCU: No more black (Conviction (iii), Stevie Smith)

Jemma’s initial reaction to Hydra’s black lab coats was professional scorn. They were always light for a reason, black could hide dangerous contamination! When she returned to SHIELD, though, she was glad for the difference. She donned a white coat and felt herself again, knew she was where she belonged.

Old Kingdom: The night was dark no father was there (The Little Boy Lost, William Blake)

Sabriel woke suddenly, heart pounding. Father was calling! She stared at the shapeless landscape under the starless night, her diamond’s Charter fire the only light. Where was he? Then memory returned, sword-sharp. Even as tears sprang, she sensed something Dead nearby. Drying her eyes, the Abhorsen reached for her bells.

Vorkosigan Saga: whom could I talk to? (Since Nine O'Clock, C.P. Cavafy)

The secretary was out of her depth. Relentlessly insistent mercenary admirals hadn’t been covered in any training course!
“I’m afraid…” she began again.
“Yes, you can’t answer my questions. So who could I talk to that could?”
Admitting defeat, she buzzed her boss. Let her deal with the little maniac.

Meme borrowed from [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook who made this version, originally from [livejournal.com profile] 500themes :)

STEP ONE: Match a pairing/character/crossover characters to a prompt. *
STEP TWO: Repeat STEP ONE as many times as you want. **
STEP THREE: Wait patiently. ***
STEP FOUR: READ ALL THE FIC!

* If I know it, I'll attempt to write it; if I don't I'll let you know and you can pick something else. Anything that has a "fandom" tag here is probably good, or anything you've seen me mention here / on tumblr / etc. And feel free to take a shot at any canon, really. Variety is the spice of life and all that :)

** Use common sense, please! Keep it to, um, under or around 10 prompts per person? (I won't cry if you've got 13, I might if you've got 50 :P) Ideally don't duplicate other people's choices (I'll be updating the post as people comment), but if you absolutely fall in love with a prompt that someone's already asked for, go for it.

*** I make no promises about how fast / in what order things will be written! But the meme looks fun, and it is the holidays.

End of footnotes! Go! Read prompts! Pick prompts! Comment!

500 prompts below! )

what would they get each other for gifts?:
