I never wrote last year's drabbles, 'cos life intervened, but I thought I'd offer again this year, to supplement thinkier, linkier posts.

So. Choose a character from the list! Choose a pairing for hir if desired! Give a prompt word. And go.

this year's list, longer and more colorful than ever before -- thanks Shonda! )

Drabbles-on-demand (still working on last week's, too.)

Choose a character from the list! Choose a pairing for hir if desired! Give a prompt word. And go. [In which I likely accidentally spell many characters' names wrong.]

cut for the pretties )

As last year, I am pretty sure that I can write all these characters, but am not making any promises about when fic will get done.

As always, het, boyslash, girlslash, threesomes, and gen, as well as crossovers, are perfectly acceptable requests.

girls of color )

boys of color )

I am pretty sure I can write most of these characters! I hope! Keep in mind that I am still five or six episodes behind on VMars and half a season behind on the Gates.

(What about characters who are blue, green, or purple, but played by white actors? What about actors acting under so much makeup and rubber that you can't tell what color their skin is? What about shows where "race" has a different meaning, and what does it mean when members of all races are played by white actors? [Farscape, I am in fact looking at you, unless someone can remind me of someone I've forgotten.])

Drabbles guaranteed to the first five respondees, will do my best after that.

[ETA] AND DONE! Nine drabbles can be found here!

[livejournal.com profile] malnpudl posted this meme, which is a list of TV shows that you distinguish in various ways, one of which is "I am positive I have seen every episode of this. I'm not doing the meme, but here is my list of things I've seen all of:

Angel
Buffy: the Vampire Slayer
Dark Angel
Farscape
Firefly
Sports Night

I'm pretty sure there aren't any other TV shows I've watched in their entirety. I practically had the first seasons of Arthur and Friends and Wishbone memorized, but I didn't watch the later seasons; the same is true with many shows notably absent from my list.

Most of the notably absent things on my list I am simply not caught up on (West Wing, the Stargates, Veronica Mars); one show I won't watch any more of (Andromeda), some I watched piecemeal (the Treks, Lexx, The Sentinel), and one, I missed one episode entirely by accident (House M.D., "Daddy's Boy").

When I first got into fandom, I kept lists of all the episodes of all my shows and put x's next to episode titles after I'd seen them; this was partially because I watched most shows piecemeal at first (with Gvambat showing me the best episodes in no particular order and skipping things she didn't have or didn't like), and I really did need a way to keep track.

Insert thinky thoughts about ficcing in open vs closed canons, writing with/out firm grasp of canon, writing ambivalent futures, plunging into fandom feet first, the importance of completism vs some other strategy, etcetc. I don't know. Too tired to think. But look. (*points up*) I made a list!

(And I suddenly remembered I still haven't seen the very end of "Rising."

+writing [livejournal.com profile] femslash_minis fic. It has plot atmosphere!
+The talk only in userpics meme is teh_awesome. [livejournal.com profile] inlovewithnight and I wrote a wee little Kaylee/Gunn story of awesomeness.
+I love coffee!
+I should work on graduate school apps.
+My hands are cold.
+I miss my girlfriend.
+I dreamt [livejournal.com profile] alixtii and I were co-writing a fic where Willow and Dawn got married.

I think that's everything of import!

Top number one way to tell you're reading Ari-fic:

1. It's shipfic. And the ship in question is complete and utter crack.

Nine more ways in no particular order to tell you're reading one of my fics:

2. In the sexy bits there's slipping and sliding and moaning and, if it's het, I thought of Dworkin and put her around him and not him in her. And if it's boyslash, I completely made all the bits up.
3. If it's boyslash and it's porny, it's got either Wesley or Alexis Denisof in it. Or possibly both.
4. It songsongs off into itself somewhere and you've got characters forgetting to remember to forget.
5. It's in tight third-person-limited POV.
6. The fourth wall is broken.
7. You find yourself seeing subtext for pairings other than the textual one. OR there's a long bit in the headers warning you that if you look hard enough, you might see subtext for upwards of five pairings in addition to the featured one.
8. If getting the featured pairing together requires some sort of plot thing to happen, it likely happened off-screen and is alluded to obliquely so as to make you go, "What? When'd that happen?"
9. Fred is an X-Files fan.
10. McKay and Weir are having sex and Weir is clearly topping and McKay comes off a little funny because he's so totally completely whipped. Yes!

I want to write this fic where there's a cold snow-covered planet and McKay whines and wheedles and convinces Elizabeth to come see it because there's something very important and plotty there and she finally gives in because she loves him so and then they get there and she's all very cold and so's he, and whining loudly about it and she says, "So what was so important that you needed me to freeze for it?"

And then he kisses her.

Yay!

Except for the part that it's completely daft and out-of-character, I think that would be really lovely.

Name a fandom you know I know and I'll tell you:

01. The first character I first fell in love with
02. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
03. The character everyone else loves that I don't
04. The character I love that everyone else hates
05. The character I used to love but don't any longer
06. The character I would shag anytime
07. The character I'd want to be like
08. The character I'd slap
09. A pairing that I love
10. A pairing that I despise

Sports Night is fair game, but keep in mind I'm like, three ten episodes in so character/'ship prefs still very much devoted entirely to Dana/Natalie up in the air

ETA: Dec. 20 - filled in unguessed pairings.

I'm crazy about guess-that-pairing memes. These are probably going to be blindingly obvious, but ah well:

From Alan Turing: The Enigma, on the death of his first love, Christopher Morcom: [Alan] had surrendered half his mind, only to have it drop into a void.

From [livejournal.com profile] thousandpages, who officially tagged the whole list, ten things that make me happy:
1. Nightly glee. This isn't really redundant, because the act of recalling and verbalizing daily joys itself makes me a happier person.
2. [livejournal.com profile] gvambat.
3. Fannish things, specifically this year, new episodes of House and Veronica Mars, and, more generally, anticipating stuff like Peacekeeper Wars last year and Serenity this year and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince somewhere in between.
4. My father and my sister, as well as my extended paternal family (when they aren't trying to make me dance.)
5. Book-daze. When you're reading a long and meaty novel and can think of nothing else for days and are pretty much living in that world and even when you finish, you've got this lingering feeling that you're just waking up from the most fantastic dream you've ever had.
6. Getting feedback on fic.
7. Philippians 4:4. Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Also known as my Christianity in a nutshell.
8. Dar Williams songs.
9. Snail mail (and email) from old friends and new.
10. Being able to articulate complex ideas.

I've yet to respond to comments re: drabbles. I'll do so as soon as I post this.

I have today off, and that's making me happy and groovy. I even woke up before noon!

Whilst I anxiously await finding out if I'm going to the Hartford screening of Serenity with [livejournal.com profile] mosca (Who, in case you hadn't realized, is the coolest person in the entire frelling 'verse, to madly mangle my mythologies) and friends, some things.

Last night I went through my school email account and forwarded all the emails between self and girlfriend to gmail. All 200 of them. (And that was just for about a three-week period...). Some amusing bits:
[Farscape humor, spoilers through S3]
why there is no fifth amendment in the Uncharted Territories )

Gvambat: Hammond/Hammond is a weird ship.
Ari: Hammond/Harry Potter is a weirder ship.

And the fictional characters I'd shag meme, as started by [livejournal.com profile] malnpudl and seen variously. This version snurched mostly from [livejournal.com profile] voleuse, as we happen to share most fandoms.

Am horrible person. Or perhaps just horrible challenge-responder type person.

First there was the attempt to write Wesley/Lilah that totally turned into Fred/Oz (still unfinished, by the way.)

And now I'm writing this backup fic for a ficathon (not the McKay one) and the request is totally for a certain het pairing involving Daniel and a female person who isn't Sam. And it's totally turned into a certain slash pairing that shall only be known as "Jack/Daniel."

*headdesk*

Also, I have this problem with my OTPs. I know, I don't have OTPs. I have lots of true pairings. But the thing is, they're all true. You know what I mean? If I'm writing a fic with Willow and Giles in it, regardless of what pairings it is, there's going to be feelings there. Willow has a crush on Giles. It's part of my unchangeable canon. Of course, W/T and W/O are also part of my unchangeable canon.

And I can't write Daniel/Sam where Daniel isn't also in love with Jack, and since I can't avoid the evil Canon Het, Sam's usually in love with Jack too.

And I bet if I tried to write Jack/Daniel, I'd have the same problem.

Clearly, I will never, ever be capable of writing genfic, and soon all my fic will turn into space operas more confusing than certain seasons of Angel.

Or possibly threesomes.

With that, GIP, and I think I'm going to sleep for a couple of hours before church. *headdesk*

I'm a bad influence on myself.

But no, wait, first: a list of pairings that will always be present in any fic of any length I write about the characters. Or, in other words, the loves that are part of my own personal canon:
cut because, predictably, it's a long list )
Looking for the McKay Ficathon Masterlist? It's here.

fun pointless meme: All the pairings I've written (from [livejournal.com profile] azarsuerte from got it from [livejournal.com profile] dragonsigner who got it from [livejournal.com profile] angelsgracie who seems to have it f-locked but who probably got it from [livejournal.com profile] deannie who got it from [livejournal.com profile] taraljc who got it from [livejournal.com profile] debc who got it from [livejournal.com profile] dragonsinger... okay, backtrack. Obviously [livejournal.com profile] angelsgracie got it from someone else. Conclusion: [livejournal.com profile] angelsgracie brought the meme to my corner of fandom in a f-locked post. Anyhow:
pairings I have written )
wisdomeagle: Original Cindy and Max from Dark Angel getting in each other's personal space (Default)
New pairing meme!

and the hottest pairings are... )

I think I'm going to try to go back to sleep now, even though it's probably a shit idea.
