Fic/shipping meme

1. Write down the names of 10 characters.
2. Get prompts from people using numbers instead of names.
3. Write a fic of fifteen words or less for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers.
4. Author, DO NOT read the prompts before you choose your characters

Please, everyone, steer me away from my critiquing. I've got my list of characters ready to go, and not a single one of my usual suspects are on it. Help a girl out.

[ profile] scribble_myname tagged me for this meme, so what the hell, why not! It goes like this:

Pull seven lines from the seventh page of your WIP, then you're supposed to tag seven other writers.

My moral dilemma is always this: do I go with my double-spaced manuscript to get to the 7th page, or single-space it to see what happens?

7 lines from the double-spaced version:

Without saying a word she hands me her coffee in its to-go cup. It’s sweet of her but I wave it off. I’m not a white chocolate mocha type of guy and for all the time we’ve spent together on this tour, I’m sure that’s exactly what she’s drinking this time of day.

"What," she says, laughter filling in the rough edges of her accusation, "are you afraid caffeine might actually make you string a few words together?"

"Guilty," I tell her, trying hard not to smile. This is the same dance we’ve been doing the past few months. A step forward, two steps back.

7 lines from the single-spaced version (so I'm cheating, too bad):

"Sound diffusion."

The corner of Jesse’s mouth curves up in a smile. "You really are a complete fucking geek." Before I can protest, she adds one more thing. "I like that about you."

I try not to smile too hard, but there’s nothing about that effort that isn’t a losing proposition. Lucky for my self esteem, she doesn’t say a word about it.

I don't even know who to tag, who's writing these days? Um... [personal profile] ceitfianna, [personal profile] misslucyjane, [personal profile] thewickedlady, and anyone else who's writing and wants to show off their work!

[personal profile] ceitfianna gave me the letter B. Comment if you want to play.

Something I hate: Blaming. I really don't like it when people can't accept responsibility for their own actions.

Something I love: Battlestar Galactica (the 2003 edition). I still think it's one of the best-written shows ever to have aired. Its strengths far outweigh its flaws.

Somewhere I've been: Bucharest. Romania was something else when I was there. A++ for chocolate and coffee, D-- for all those pesky vampires.

Somewhere I'd like to go: Bangkok. I've never visited any part of Thailand before.

Someone I know: Basco, my cat. It's short for Tabasco. She's adorable, and my best friend at night.

A film I like: Blade Runner. I know it's problematical, but boy, is it moody. Honorable mentions go to Blue Velvet (who doesn't like David Lynch in all his weird glory) and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, because Judi Dench and Bill Nighy need no further explanation.

A book I love: The BFG, Roald Dahl. It's such a sweet read.

An Author: Emily Bronte. The first half of Wuthering Heights is disturbingly good.

Also courtesy of [ profile] scribble_myname. Somebody please come play with me on this one:

If you know what character you want, you can pick, or you can describe a character and I'll snag my closest match. Or just leave it to me to pick.

send me a number and i'll answer the questions with one of my ocs:

- How does your OC react when their rival is grovelling at their feet for their life?
- What’s the subtitle that accompanies your OC’s name during their dramatic intro?
- What incredibly lame thing does your OC do while thinking that it’s actually super cool?
- How would your OC react to meeting someone who is attempting to impersonate them?
- Would your OC try to weasel out of a genie wish limit with the wishing for more wishes bullshit?
- Exactly what amount of wealth would be enough to tempt your OC into doing something that is distasteful but not specifically against their moral code?
- What is the most unacceptable pun that someone would use in conversation with your OC?
- Would your OC eat cooked testicles assuming they’re prepared hygienically?
- If your OC attempted to clean their nails with a dagger like some sort of stereotypical fantasy badass would they accidentally cut themselves?
- How many days can your OC go without bathing before they can’t stand being in their own body anymore?

From [ profile] scribble_myname:

You know that meme that goes around sometimes where you post your five favorite kinks and then five favorite couples, and it's like a wish into the universe to see if anybody will write it for you? Let's make it a little more interactive.

Comment here if you want to play, and I will give you 3-6 couples that I associate with you, and you make an entry in your journal talking about those couples and fics that you wish the universe would write for you.
She gave me three of my OC pairings (Tom/Jen, Wes/Jesse, Denny/Laurie) but I don't have any particular wishes of things I'd like to see people write about them. They're mostly too unfinished to request anything for, especially Jesse & Wes because I'm still working on their story. But she also gave me these three fictional pairings:
  • Rogue/Remy
  • Clint/Natasha
  • Tris/Four
Rogue/Remy: I am the proud author of exactly one Rogue fic and zero Remy fics. I haven't spent a lot of time analyzing the pairing or dreaming about them, and I don't actually even know Remy very well as a character. But from what I do know, both characters are shrouded in painful secrets. I mean, Rogue can't even touch someone, for heaven's sake. I would be really interested in a fic where the both of them have no choice but to drop their façades and be completely honest with each other, with full understanding of how risky that is for each of them. I wouldn't care if it was mostly psychological profile and very little action, but man, would I love to see both of them have one hell of an emotional reaction to each others' honesty.

As far as Clint/Natasha goes... I'm more a fan of the pairing by osmosis than by anything else. As far as I'm concerned The Avengers in general are hellaciously ridiculous, and I love that. They battle giant aliens! They have to learn to work together, like it or not! They have all sorts of unexpected and unintended interactions. I think it would be really fun to see a fic for these two that was the equivalent of a rip-roaring adventure on the high seas. They can be bros, they can be romantically involved--I just want to see the adventure, and watch them learn to respect one another's abilities. Maybe even learn from each other.

Tris/Four: They need a fix-it fic in the worst way. I don't mean a post-canon fix-it fic, I mean a mid-canon fix-it fic. Tobias is such a crud to Tris so much of the time that I can't really see why she falls for him. So he's afraid of heights. So what. So she learns his fear landscape--so what. What has he done for her lately? If someone could write a fic that was so heavy with emotional content (told from either POV, I'm not picky) that it actually made sense of their relationship and brought it home to roost, I would be so happy. A really well-done missing scene from somewhere in Dauntless HQ would do it nicely.
