First line meme! Post the first line from all of your WiPs.

"The Bartons were welcoming, as Hilliard had been told they would be, though their eyes sometimes flickered over Hilliard's stripes and then up to his face as if they expected to see another – they did, of course."
- mostly involving Hilliard wandering round the Bartons' house being confused by all these well-adjusted people.

"Curio woke in – not darkness, exactly, but light blurred and dimmed in his vision, blotching purple and green as he blinked."
- five times Curio and Francisco quarrelled, part one of something which will probably never see the light of day.

"i. love suffereth long, and is kind"
- Richard/Alec, drabbles to the tune of I Corinthians 13, at which they fail.

"Haven't we met, you're some kind of beautiful stranger…"
- involving AU!Superhero!Noldor, Fingon apparently liking Madonna, don't ask

"I’ll never forget the day that bastard walked into my office."
- Noir!Elves AU, with Haleth as a hard-boiled PI investigating the theft of three priceless diamonds from a mob family, the Finwions.

"It was a pleasant domestic scene, such as might be found in any household on Kearny's Lane."
- Johanna manipulating the fuck out of Anthony. "I'll get some lye", indeed.

"She was so young in those days, a lovely little slip of a thing."
- this one about Mrs Lovett having an abortion

"His mother took one look at Johanna, wrapped up in a black shawl he'd bought from a pedlar on the road, and tutted."
- part of a potentially longer fic where Anthony tries to come to terms with the fact that his shiny new princess is irredeemably fucked-up.

"It is an assured fact that most English (or indeed, to give Moriarty and O'Hara their due, Irish) schoolboys will work hard, love honour and boxing, and above all, play the game."
- PG Wodehouse's school stories, which was a gift for someone. Never really worked out.

"Their hotel room in Pisa has a balcony and costs twice as much for that very reason."
- an Amon/Robin travelogue, post-series.

"The sights I could show thee, O sailor far from home
Who hath cross'd the blue sea in but a coracle."
- Medea/Jason scrapbook fic, part of which I'm trying to write in hexameter (as above), but I can't even face dactylic hexameter.

"“I don’t think I like myself any more,” he said in a faraway voice, so young and trembling like the aftermath of a storm."
- Nine meets Ovid, post-Time War.

""The TARDIS threw me out," the Doctor said mournfully, his hand on the doorbell."
- a weird Ten/Martha fic

"Thirty-three seconds ago, Donna was screaming for help."
- what time means to the Doctor.

I has a cold. *sniffle*

[ profile] fannish5:  Five reasons your OTP/a favorite pairing belong together.

Who do I choose? I won't choose.

Anne/Gilbert )

Anthony/Johanna )

Maedhros/Fingon )

I'm writing Doctor Who vampire hunter AU. DW is a fandom largely without crack-filled AU like that, because anything you can think of is plausible within canon (and probably has been done within canon, too). And yet. Next it'll be high school AU.

List three stories you think I will never ever write, and I will attempt to write a snippet of one of them.

Dear Stephen J. Lee,

Not everyone speaks French as well as you do. Please refrain from quoting at length untranslated documents. Aside from that, thank you.


It occurs to me that I can argue a decent case for Louis XIV causing the French Revolution. Yeah, I don't like him.

2. Mrs Lovett (Sweeney Todd)

You know, I've been reading up on Anne Boleyn and I can't help suspecting she made some sort of deal with the devil. "You will only have your life's goal for three years and will die unfairly maligned; in exchange, your daughter will be called the greatest monarch England has ever had and you will be able to mock your husband and your other enemies from beyond the grave."

Silm meme!

My neighbours gave me a cross necklace for Christmas. It's very pretty, but it does engender the sense that despite having known me for over ten years, they have somehow yet to actually meet me. However, that's unimportant. My parents gave me the loveliest pair of pyjamas ever (they're my first that don't have, like, kittens and stuff printed on them, too, because I never ever buy pyjamas) and also a DVD/VCR combo (because I don't have enough SCART leads and things to have both).

Also, the first day of Twelve Days of Happy Silmarillion Fic (because there isn't enough), which should technically have been up yesterday, but please bear with me:

I have seen *counts* sixteen posts on my flist about Dumbledore being gay. I am disappointed, flist. I was expecting at least twenty. Actually, I just wish she'd mentioned it in the books. Canon from the interviews annoys me. It's not like she didn't already have about 300 pages of extraneous crap in the books.

Anyway, I have promised recs! And I shall deliver. I waited until today so that one of my recs would no longer be a WIP. By fandom:

Vorkosigan recs )

The Silmarillion recs )

Avengers recs )

X-Men recs )

Doctor Who recs )

Robin Hood recs )

Shakespeare recs )

Just figured out what the problem with Maedhros is in the fic I'm writing. The story is told from his point of view and he's not showing any emotion at all. Fingon is in tears at one point and he gets to shove Maedhros down and yell in his face, but Maedhros is just not reacting at all. I could probably fix it, but the detachment works to a certain extent. A certain extent, so *hideous dilemma*.

I can't write emotion at all. I can only write physical action. D:

In other news, we had Greek Art today. This inspired the important question: has there ever been a porn film based on the original Olympic Games?*

*It would have to be a porn film, to allow for the risk of seeing actors' penises. Unless Ewan McGregor is starring, naturally.

[ profile] 31_days fic exchange for [ profile] green_and_warty. The Silmarillion, Maedhros/Fingon. 2080 words. Title refers to Sonnet 29.

You know, it's quite irritating? This entire fic was set up to be a vehicle for one two-line exchange. And that two-line exchange ended up being cut out. It just didn't fit.

Part One
