Backstory drabble prompts!

I'm still in the mood to write drabbles (quick, non-time consuming, and they get my fic brain creaking back into gear so I can write long fic), and since I actually want to steer myself towards getting back into my long fic, so:

Give me a character or pairing and a prompt for something that would be backstory, and I'll write a one-comment drabble/snippet for it.

1. Cloud, and being the child of a single mother in Nibelheim - Yellow hair

2. What any or all of the Turks picture when they think 'home' - Cállate

Yay, genking drabble challenges!

This is genked from raisedbymoogles:

Give me an AU from any of my fandoms, and I'll write you a short scene from it. Basically, like the in medias res thing I did a while back, where you get a snippit, not a whole story. :D

1. Kingdom Hearts, everyone genderswitched - Schaden-something

2. Fae!FFVII - The Poet and the Warrior (livejournal)

3. FF7, literal puppyverse? kemonomimi & fluffy tails & all - The Other Problem with Puppies

4. FF7, high school AU! - Detention Duty (dreamwidth)

5. FF7 characters as dragon riders - Out of the Frying Pan

Blargh

I totally tried to write more of both TTYNKAP and Puppyverse, and my ficbrain gave me the middle finger. Hell, it gave me the middle finger trying to write necessary plot-type stuff for HC. XD;;;;

Anyway, I need to get back into writing, but since my ficbrain is being tetchy and not quite getting into the writing groove (everything I write feels vaguely off, y'know?), I'm putting up a challenge for one-comment fic. Anything Compilation of FF7 or anything in jou!canon is game--I figure I need to prime the pump a bit before I can get back into my big projects since I haven't written anything of note in months. ;_;

So, prompts? I'll write up to five. :D

1. Puppyverse: Cloud's birthday party.
2. TTYKNAP - Reno, cuddling
3. HC - How'd Zack get that bike again?
4. Middish!verse: Mama's matzahballs
5. Puppyverse - "Ever notice that 'what the hell' is always the right decision?"

Quick drabble challenge: Hojo edition.

It occurs to me that I've never written anything with Hojo.

Seeing as later in Puppyverse, which is going to be full-speed-ahead once I finish off at least one of my on-going fic, Hojo is going to be a major character, I need to get some Hojo practice in.

So...throw something Hojo at me. Anything (...famous last words, I know).

1. Paperwork and Plots - Hojo having very little patience for anything outside of science, like paperwork

2. Playing Your Cards Right - Hojo vs Gast back before Gast left Shinra/Hojo + his ideas of parenting (two prompts, which is why I let it go past the one-comment limit I gave myself.)

3. Getting the Knack of It - Hojo as a child and what brought him into the halls of science.

4. Valuable ShinRa Property - Hojo gives Seph The Talk.

5. The Perks of the Job - A young, up-and-coming-scientist Hojo being the utter heart throb of ShinRa.

Twisted Commentfic Challenge

After the two rather twisted 100-word drabbles I did, I feel the urge to write the most twisted things I can for a while. XD;;;

But just writing something obviously twisted is no fun, so. Give me a totally, totally innocuous prompt, and I will find a way to twist it (regular ol' twisted is OK, too). I'm limiting myself to the length of two comments max (I'd say one comment, but there's always that one that goes just past the limit).

Drabbles will be written in no particular order. XD

1. If Not an Angel, Then--

2. Dream a Little Dream

3. Tea for Two

4. Someone to Watch Over Me

100 word drabbles

To help me get back and stay in the swing of writing, I started doing 100 word drabbles for [info]ffvii_100.

Title: Shed Your Skin
Challenge: Crossovers
Characters: Snake, Otacon, Cloud
Author's Notes: Heh heh, it was the only series I could think of that would make sense--Metal Gear Solid. ;)

Shed Your Skin

--

Title: Pretty Things
Challenge: Lust
Characters: Angeal, Sephiroth, Genesis
Author's Notes: Lust, with a little touch of envy for flavor.

Pretty Things

--

Title: I Have Kissed Thy Mouth, Iokanaan
Challenge: Lust
Characters: Sephiroth, Angeal
Author's Notes: The title comes from Salome's monologue by Oscar Wilde: Ah! I have kissed thy mouth, Iokanaan, I have kissed thy mouth. There was a bitter taste on thy lips. Was it the taste of blood? Nay; but perchance it was the taste of love. They say that love hath a bitter taste. But what matter? what matter? I have kissed thy mouth.

I Have Kissed Thy Mouth, Iokanaan

Taking a break from wrapping presents with a meme!

Genked from [info]raisedbymoogles.

So here's the rules:
1. Write down the names of ten characters.
2. Write a fic of fifteen words or more for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers. Do not read the prompts before you do step one.

Just a warning, for all the FF13 characters, there are mentions of FF13 world-elements and plot devices (not spoilers, but still). There was a lot of FF13 crossed over with FF12, so I kinda borrowed the FF13 Fal'Cie/L'Cie curse thing for it, since it's so cool. Consider all those to be the same 'verse.

1. Oerba Yun Fang [FF13]
2. Lightning [FF13]
3. Fran
4. Zack
5. Cloud
6. Angeal
7. Genesis
8. Balthier
9. Sephiroth
10. Kadaj

I so swear, I did not check the prompts first. XD )

Drabbles?

Hi, I'm BORED STUPID. I can't manage being upright for more than an hour at a stretch before I go "...lying down now" (yay, side effects) and need to be distracted, especially since the Magic 5% of common sense that saves me from being a complete idiot is telling me I need to stay home tomorrow (I went out to buy groceries, and it was a MISTAKE; I should have ordered another pizza and had the food come to me).

So! Because I can't manage anything that requires "upright" and all of my big fic projects require more thinking than me headachey brain (yay, side effects) can manage but I'm also, yeah, BORED STUPID, one comment drabbles! (I have a laptop, which is why I'm online at all--it goes into the bed with me. :D )

Give me a prompt and I'll write a one-comment drabble.* Any fandom or 'verse I've written for is OK (I'll even entertain crossovers XD ). It will ONLY be one comment, though, even if I have to beat it with a stick.

So, yeah. Give me something to amuse myself with. I will also cheerfully accept drabbles people write for me, because yeah, I am down for the count.

* Until I get tired and have to stop. Which may be at any moment.

ETA:

Drabble One: Love Advice (FF7, TTYNKAP: Jie, Reno, Auntie Qian. Prompt: First heartbreak from love and Auntie Qian dispenses her advice on the matter) [LJ]

Drabble Two: Sage Advice (FF7:CC, Sephiroth and Genesis. Prompt: Boots, "keep them on".) [LJ]

Drabble Three: Accessory Advice (FF7: Tifa and Aerith. Prompt: Aeris and Tifa discuss Cloud.)

Drabble Four: General Advice (FF7, Puppyverse: Cloud and Sephiroth. Prompt: Seph helping Cloud out so he can get into SOLDIER) [LJ]

Drabble Five: Naming Advice (FF12/KH: Cid and Balthier. Prompt: the best way to name airships.)

Drabble Six: Play Advice (FF7, HC!verse: Zack and Marlene. Prompt: Zack is a big dork who plays Power Rangers.)

Drabble Seven: Health Advice (FF7:CC: Zack and Sephiroth. Prompt: Recuperation)

Drabble Eight: Life Advice (FF7, Puppyverse: Sephiroth, Zack, and Cloud. Prompt: Zack decides that he and Cloud need to take Sephiroth out to do something normal, possibly without actually informing either of them before hand.)

What was that about no urge to write? XD

I had this idea while I was taking a shower, and decided to throw it out to y'all for prompts.

Give me a character (or characters), a season, and an adjective or sign of the season (ie, for winter, hot chocolate), and I'll write you a drabble or a fic, depending on how it goes.

ie: Fran, winter, cold (because the reason this was floating in my head was from watching Fran run around in the snow in her thong and thinking, "She must be freezing."

Spring: When a thing is wick, it has a life about it.
1. Cloud, thaw: The Thawwind
2. Zack, blackflies: Bug Lure
3. Fran, "the first one to make a '...like bunnies' joke will not live long enough to regret it": Mating Season

Summer: Fish are jumpin', and the cotton is high.
1. Zack, swimsuits
2. Zack (and/or Loz?), frisbee
3.

Autumn: Thank you so much, for allowing me to have the beauty of the Autumn.
1. Zack, Angeal, harvest moon: Red Moon (lj)
2. Sephiroth, meditation over tea: Busadou [武茶道] (Bonus: audio version
3. Sephiroth and Lazard, scarves

Winter: Snow can wait, I forgot my mittens...
1. Sephiroth, storm: The Road North (lj)
2. degenerating!Genesis, camouflage: ~Always Look On the Bright Side of Life!~
3. Middish!Angeal, not going home for the holidays: ShinRa Policy 109.B (lj)

Bonus! Anyone who can name all of the song lyrics here gets a fic. I will even attempt pr0n if someone can name ALL FOUR. >XD [info]chibirisuchan with her l33t google skills found all four, including the one that's a translation from a Jay Chou song. So she gets a fic, and I'm doomed, because HC, Puppyverse, and the impending KH/FF12/FF:Tactics ficverse attacking me are all HER doing. DOOMED.

The most awesome wrong ever.

Your challenge is to write crossover fanfiction combining Quantum Leap and Les Miserables.
The story should use an orgy as a plot device!

Dr. Sam Beckett had no idea how he had gotten into this.

This is not to say that he had never leapt into a musical before--he had. Man of La Mancha. He could still belt out 'I am I, Don Quixote, the Man of La Mancha! My destiny calls and I go~!" even if from time to time the irony of it all hit him so hard it almost made him want to sob. Other times, it gave him a kind of strength; even if he was tilting at windmills, he was still on the path of the righteous, putting right what had once gone wrong.

So while leaping into Les Mis was new, he'd been in a musical before, and he knew the craziness that went on backstage.

This was...something else, though. The entire cast was...

"C'mon, Cosette. Give Papa a kiss," the guy playing Valjean said with a lascivious grin, and grabbed Sam by the wrist.

In Medias Res drabble challenge

Because I'm bored, and I've learned that I can't do normal drabbles and have them be short!

The In Medias Res challenge. Give me a prompt, and I will provide you one--and by god, ONLY ONE this time--of snippit of a scene from the fic that the whole prompt would make, kinda like the snips of puppyverse I've been throwing at y'all. And at ten prompts, hooyay, done! I'll finish out the last two prompts I have to write today or tomorrow. :D

I'm even going to branch out some--it doesn't have to be FF7!

I'm game for:
FF7
FF3
FF4
FF12 (but know I'm only about 10 hours in)
Nanashi no Geemu
Kingdom Hearts
The Sandman
Tokyo Babylon
Saiyuki
...hell, any fandom I've written for.

Snippit-drabbles so far (there are no titles, so just the prompts):
LJ:
Tokyo Babylon, knock before entering?
Kingdom Hearts, Pumpkins aren't only for eating!
FFVII, It isn't that bad, honestly
FFVII, Reno, Yuffie and pie.

IJ:
Axel&Roxas, the one thing neither of them knew how to do was quit
FF7, some kind of Vincent and Zack interaction
FF7, Cloud and Zack talking about /sharing their experiences on Tifa and Aeris
The Violinist of Hameln, something Hameln-related

[drabbles] Six for Sick Days

Me and my brain, we really need to have a nice, long talk about what "drabble" means.

Here are the drabbles I wrote while sick, only now spellchecked and edited. XD

Title: Six for Sick Days
Fandom: FF7
Rating: PG
A/N: Yay, fever! Consider that a warning. XD

--
Drabble 1: Second Day Chocolate
Word count: 241
Prompt: clueless!Seph and shy!Cloud and Valentine's day
Warnings/Notes: Romance and sap give me hives. Also, I'm a card-carrying member of the Overthinkers' Club: since "Valentine's Day" wouldn't exist on Gaia, I did a bit of research on similar festivals and have combined Tanabata/Qi Ye and Sepandarmazgan with a touch of Yu B'Av for kicks. I've made it into a three-day-long holiday of sorts (7th, 14th, 17th), where on the first day is for sending the signal that you're available (in this case, by wearing white), the second day for giving presents, and the third for giving presents in return if you like the person who gave you a gift. If I use it again in a fic, I'll come up with a proper name for the holiday.
ETA - Because it was nagging at me, the name of the holiday is "Tryanur," coming from the Sanskrit word "tryah" (three) and "anura-", the root for "love." I chose Sanskrit since the name of the City of the Ancients is "Ajit," which is derived from the Sanskrit "ajita," meaning "invincible." I DID say I was a member of the Overthinkers' Club, yo.

For ldyavalon (lj).

Drabble 2: Nifelheimlich
Word count: 726
Prompt: What is Shinra going to try to market as Nibelheim's good point when it tries to make a "fangirl dream tour" involving the home towns of the three generals and their protege?
Warnings/Notes: I had a fever when I wrote this. That's my story and I'm sticking with it. And the image for the "chibi-Gen" comes from Gackt chibis that were sold at his concerts a few years ago.
For [info]chibirisuchan.

Drabble 3: A Pox on Both Your Houses
Word count: 877
Prompt: Sephiroth with chicken pox
Warnings/Notes: A bit of this was influenced unconsciously by [info]raisedbymoogles' "On Broken Wings"--the "Seph had a rash as a kid from a deadly poison" bit came from there, and I only realized it after I wrote it. Ahh, well. ^^;;


For [info]book_people.

A Pox on Both Your Houses )

Drabble 4: 3 AM
Word count: 599
Prompt: Sephiroth, Angeal, and Genesis sitting around drinking, while making droll observations about literature, philosophy, politics...
Warnings/Notes: I'm not supposed to like Genesis. WHY AM I LIKING GENESIS?! I blame that on the fever and nausea. Clearly, I need to play CC again so I can remember why Genesis makes me want to punch him in the face.
For poisonsoda (lj).

3 A.M. )

--
Drabble 5: Easier to Run
Word count: 495
Prompt: Something with Zack and Tseng!
Warnings/Notes: Taken from this scene in Crisis Core. The title comes from the Linkin Park song "Easier to Run" because when I was trying to think of what to do for this prompt, this song came on and then I got walloped by the plotbunny and HARD. So...not light and fluffy.
For scifiroots (lj).

Easier to Run )

Drabble 6: Materia Ice
Word count: 1,178 (drabble whut)
Prompt: Loz, Yazoo, and Kadaj discover ice cream.
Warnings/Notes: Inspired by my INSANE love of shaved ice. People seriously laugh at me and how I eat it like it's going to vanish at any second.
For [info]guiltyred.

Title: Under the Table
Author: joudama
Fandom: FF7
Rating: worksafe!
Summary: Why it's not a good idea for a Turk and SOLDIER to go boozing. Or maybe why it is.
A/N: I wrote this, like, a month or so ago, on someone else's journal. And then remembered about it and decided to post it here before I completely forget about it.
Prompt: For [info]writerzilch. Crisis Core: Zack and Reno, stupid bets.

[drabble fic] FF7: Synapse

Title: Synapse
Author: joudama
Fandom: Final Fantasy 7
Rating: PG
Warnings: ...this is kind of fucked up. Short, but fucked up.
A/N: For [info]kusuri. This didn't want to be any longer and, um, I'm think I'm glad for that, because it would have headed into the "I am very disturbed" place had it gone longer. ...which I fear might happen anyway, since "fucked up shit" seems to describe a lot of my plotbunnies.
Prompt: Synapse

My son, she whispered in his ear, in his mind, and something in him fired.

My son, she whispered, the words a caress, my beautiful, monstrous son.

And the words fired, thoughts flaring and jumping, the infinite within his grasp, and it was then that he knew who he was, knew what he was.

And that he would be and do what she could not.

Title: Skewing the Results
Fandom: Yami no Matsui
Rating: G
Warnings: None!
Word count: 892
Summary: Opening day at Krispy Kreme Shinjuku!
A/N: For [info]cephy. :D This was inspired by the line opening weekend for Krispy Kreme in Shinjuku a couple of years ago. I kid you not, the line was three to four hours long--it was so long my friend and I refused to get in it, because as much as we wanted Krispy Kreme because we were Southerners, oh hell no. >XD This isn't as good as I wanted it to be--it would have had to have been a lot longer, alas. Ahh, well. Y'all can see where I was going with this.

Drabble post!

So, I did a drabble challenge a while back--the one that spawned ShinraMart, but didn't post the drabbles that got written on lj. So, here they are.

For [info]writerzilch:
Prompt: Reno being a total sadistic asshole and scaring the crap out of people.
No Interruptions )

For [info]telophase:

Drabble challenge!

So, I am trying to get back into writing after far, FAR too long a hiatus--I wrote exactly jack and shit in 2007. I've made an oath to write at least one page of something every day, which is very doable given that I have two big fic projects plus signed up for kinkfest.

But I'm trying to really get back into things, which is why I'm putting a drabble challenge. Give me a prompt and, within 24 hours of me reading the e-mail (probably less since I intend to write the drabble as soon as I read it) I will produce something for you.

So, prompt away. XD If I don't know the fandom, well, I'll tell you and hey! Chance for you to fanpush! :D

x-posted to my personal lj and fic lj.
