2009 Fic meme!

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 )

Meme! Genked from teamromy!

Please copy the topics below, erase my answers and put yours in their place, and then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration. One-Word-Answers seldom help anyone out.

And so, Javert, you see it's true~ )

Because it's been a while, and to prove I have been writing.

Yay, meme!

If you happen to be working on some creative writing project, fanfiction or what have you, post one sentence/paragraph/whatever from each of your current work(s) in progress in your journal. It should probably be your favourite or most intriguing sentence so far, but what you choose is entirely your discretion. Mention the title (and genre) if you like, but don't mention anything else--this is merely to whet the general appetite for your forthcoming work(s).

A lot of fic, oh man. I need more free time. )

Because i r memesheep and also am bored and falling asleep at work.

I have no idea how good I may be at this, since when I write I tend to do the "falling into the hole in the paper" thing Stephen King wrote about in "Misery," but hey.

Pick a paragraph/passage of under 500 words from any story I've written and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, what's going on in the characters' heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, or anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

And just cause, a snippit from fic I'm working on:

Biological Warfare:
Sephiroth had made the assumption that the kitten would eventually give up on scratching at the door.

It did not.

Or rather, it did give up...and switched to yowling. At approximately 3:42 a.m.

Sephiroth stumbled out of his bed and over to the door where the kitten was yowling. He picked it up by the scruff of its neck and stared it dead in the eyes.

The kitten stared back.


Harrow Children:
"He doesn't need to know, or you need to rewrite the past? It's a lot easier on you, isn't it, if you can pretend what happened didn't," Tifa said with a sickeningly sweet smile, her voice still held to a low whisper. "If Cloud doesn't remember, you can forget. Makes things a lot easier, doesn't it?"

Zack was so angry that he was shaking. "Tifa, when in Hel's name did you turn into such a bitch?"

"Probably about the same time you turned into such a coward," Tifa shot back, crossing her arms and raising an eyebrow.

I R memesheep!

I found this while poking around dreamwidth cleaning up some tags, and figured hey, why not do it again! :D

I have a lot of in-progress fic. ^^; )

25 first lines meme

From supacat:

Post the first line from your 25 most recent fanfics and try to find a pattern.

This is in no particular order, because ye gods.

Holy SHIT I wrote a lot since I moved to Kyoto. )

Looking at these? Yeah, so, I have a thing for starting in medias res. And I oscillate between really short opening sentences and really long ones. The big thing, though, is throwing the reader headfirst into the fic. Past that...I can't really see any trends. Even the crackfic first sentences--excluding the obvious crack that is "Fries With That?"--could just as easily been the starts for serious fic, and some of the serious fic first sentences seem like they should be for crack.

Fanfic meme yoinked from LJ

Q and A: A Fanfiction Meme.
Ask me a question about one of my fanfictions. It can be absolutely anything in any fic and I will tell you the honest-to-god answer. Don’t hold back. Ask about major upcoming plot points if you want to. Whatever you ask, I have to answer truthfully.

I will warn you in advance if my answer contains major Spoilers and give you a chance to back out. Think carefully before asking a question. You might not want to have it spoiled as badly as you think you do (for that matter, i might not want to SPOIL it as badly as you want it spoiled.)

May un-hatched chickens fall on me from above if I wimp out and refuse to answer. Feel free to repost this for your own fic.
