FanFic100: 100 Tales

100 Tales

December 2005: I claimed this table in FF100 with the intention of writing 100 drabbles or ficlets about Gondolin.

December 2012: SEVEN FRIGGING YEARS LATER years later, I've written...nine.

In an earnest attempt to develop a more regular writing habit, I am going to reinstate this table, but will be eliminating the Gondolin restriction. These prompts will hopefully cover a wide variety of fandoms, or may even include original writing outside of any fandoms.  Here's to hoping there will be more stories, however small, in 2013.
100 TalesCollapse )

Well, I'm going to France.

I find it difficult to fathom that not one, but THREE of my colleagues passed on an opportunity to go to France on the company dime to participate in a staff exchange with the INHA, but they did, so the 4th string JV kid (me!) gets to go in their place. They've been sending me to Alliance Française to hopefully unlock whatever high school french still remains deep in my grey matter (very little!) but my exchange colleague speaks "adequate" english, according to his boss, which means that he could totally lecture at the university level. Yeah, adequate enough!  I'm relieved that I won't have to worry about the language barrier.  I am totally taking vacation days before I start. My Global Entry status, which I mainly got for Africa later, came just in time!This whole thing is nuts, but I've stopped questioning.

Indolent blathering ahead.Collapse )

You'd still have a couple hours left to celebrate if you were on the left coast! So I am raising a glass to you from cool and not-all-that-sunny California and hoping you had a lovely and non-stressful day that involved at least one alcoholic beverage and the desert of your choice!!


Have a fandom-related m-thing I grabbed from indy1776, heartofoshun, keiliss, and others!! Ask as many as you want and I will do my best to answer. Someday. Have pity.  (This counts as writing, yes? Say yes. Humor me.)

I am greying out the ones already claimed, and turning the first letter RED if I've managed to answer! :D

A - Your current OTP(s)/OT3(s)/OTX(s)

B - A pairing you initially didn’t consider but someone changed your mind

C - A ship you have never liked and probably never will (be nice)

D - A pairing you wish you liked but just can’t (again: be nice)

E - Have you added anything cracky/hilarious to your fandom, if so, what

F - What’s the longest you’ve ever been in a fandom

G - Do you remember your first OTP, if so who was in it

H - What is your favorite source text for fandom stuff (e.g., tv shows, movies, books, anime, Western animation, etc.)

I - Has tumblr caused you to stop liking any fandoms, if so, which and why

J - Name a fandom you didn’t care/think about until you saw it all over tumblr

K -Say something nice about someone in any of your fandoms

L - Say something genuinely nice about a character who isn’t one of your faves (chars you’re neutral on are fair game, as are chars you dislike)

M - Say something genuinely nice about a ship that you don’t ship (or its shippers, or anything related to you)

N - Name three things you wish you saw more or in your main fandom (or a fandom of choice)

O - Choose a song at random, which ship or character does it remind you of

P - Invent a random AU for any fandom (we always need more ideas)

R - A pairing you ship that you don’t think anyone else ships

S - Show us an example of your personal headcanon (prompts optional but encouraged)

T - Do you have any hard and fast headcanons that you will die defending, about anything at all (gender identity, sexual or romantic orientation, extended family, sexual preferences like top/bottom/switch, relationship with poetry, seriously anything)

U - 5 favorite characters from 5 different fandoms

V - 3 OTPs from 3 different fandoms

W - 5 favorite ships and 5 kinks you like best for said ships


Y - What are your secondhand fandoms (fandoms you aren’t in personally but are tangentially familiar with because your friends/people on your dash are in them)

Z - Just ramble about something fan-related, go go go (prompts optional but encouraged)

My erstwhile beta and all-around delightful human, lady_elina, has just sold the film rights for her YA novel, Memory of Water!

Meanwhile, I am not a single word further along in finishing Ionnath-Estel, or writing my Berlin story. Sigh.  But big congrats to Elina!! Couldn't happen to a lovelier person!

[on writing]: Making the Clackity Noise

P. passed along this Merlin Mann blog post on writing that I really liked. Leaving it here for y'all. Wish I were making the clackity noise in non-work related ways; hope YOU are.
