So, I finally wrote my [community profile] intoabar story, featuring Ted from Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and Paul the Pedantic from Midnight in Paris. Mostly it just features Ted.

It's over here on AO3 if you're interested. I have to say, this was one of the more difficult pieces of fanfiction I've written, and I thought it would be a breeze. It took some finessing, and there are things I would've done if I'd wanted to make it longer or more detailed, but sometimes enough is enough.

[ profile] batyatoon asked me for a Battlestar Galactica fic: Five times someone petted / fed / played with Jake the Dog on New Caprica (before or during the Cylon occupation), and what they were thinking at the time. I've been turning over the possibilities in my brain since she left the prompt. Here goes.

This has been a tough, tough month, but I managed to write some things.

- a Hell on Wheels drabble. >> (LJ)

Listening is a lost art. Since it was lost, looking for it seemed the thing to do. Not anywhere exotic, just around.

The raccoon who guards the front door and sleeps like a puppy with her head on her paws is a very good listener, or at least has very good ears. But the only feedback she gives is to run away. That's okay. She's wild and shouldn't grow to trust people.

The chickadees frequenting the bird feeder have great ears. They're also brave to a point. One actually landed on my hand, probably because of inertia and good listening. It squawked and flew off, out of reach, and sat and watched. I tried to understand, but I don't speak chickadee. That's never stopped me from trying.

When I call his name, my cat listens. Mostly, he's just interested in preening and catching my hand with his paws and teeth. That's a language I understand, because I know he likes it when I pet him. This is what the hand-in-paws gesture means. He's taught me a lot about communication.

The cat, the birds, the wild creatures: they're easy. It's humans who have the most problem with listening. We interrupt, we rush to finish thoughts for each other. Maybe if we just slow down, breathe, and attend when other people speak their words, we'll learn more from each other than the cat's taught me.

But he is a pretty smart cat.

So I've been feeling less than thrilled with myself lately as far as writing goes. I haven't written anything original in a long time now, and that pains me.

I'm going to ask a favor. Give me a prompt and a setting, anything from vague to intricately detailed, and I'll come up with something original for you. If you have some preferred character archetype or set of character archetypes for it, don't be shy.

I sure don't expect to be overwhelmed by too many prompts, but if I am, I'll let you know I've got all I can handle.

ETA: Wow, you guys, thanks. I have enough prompts for now. You're all awesome.

I got... kind of sentimental and wrote a Lost fic. It even convinced me put up a new prompt at [ profile] 815survivors, so I might link it there too.

It's all about the survivors. Isn't it always?

Spoilers, naturally.

Today, I wrote a story.

Title: Dark of Night
Fandom: Last Exile
Characters: Alex Row, Euris Bassianus, Arthur Campbell
Word Count: 1782
Rating: G
Warnings: Spoilers through episode 15. (Nothing my fellow RPers haven't already heard.)

The Captain couldn't sleep. )
in_the_blue: (vincent is prettier than you)
I haven't done one of these in a long time, and it just seems like a good idea.



Fandom: any fandom.

Word count: Let's say a minimum of 300 words, just to give it a little substance.

Main theme: Someone Else.

Ratings: No restrictions.

Duration: Challenge opens now (October 22) and runs for 2 weeks. Closes at the end of day Thursday, November 5.

The inspiration from this comes from [ profile] ashavah, who's currently working on a series of sketches of one character as seen through the eyes of someone else. Brilliant, Jess! And so I steal it, but with a twist. You don't have to write about someone through another person's eyes. Just write whatever the theme "someone else" suggests to you.

Post your fics as comments to this entry, or post them in your own journal and link to your story below. Feel free to do as few or as many as you want, and if you see one you really like, be sure to leave a review or a comment. Everyone's welcome. HAVE FUN! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.
in_the_blue: (faye)
Because I have a cold -- or maybe that's not why -- I feel like doing something creative.

To the first five people who comment: I'll look at your LJ interests list and write you something based on one or more of those interests (my choice). How's that sound?

ETA: All full!
