GIMME DRABBLE PROMPTS.
Sweeney Todd, DWJ, early Kuroshitsuji, Count Cain, Witch Hunter Robin, Watchmen, Shakespeare, L. M. Montgomery, Murdoch Mysteries, Maurice, you know, anything you think I might write.
With that in mind, er, does anyone have recs for Balthier/Basch fic?
At some point, I have to post my answers to prompts for oxoniensis's <a href="http://oxoniensis.livejournal.com/395384.html>Porn Battle VII</a>. I wrote Mutt/Alex! \o/ No one else did, though. D: Anyone want a drabble?
So there's this guy, right, who's a Communist party official in the 1970s and he gets persecuted for pissing his superiors off and eventually gets sent to the gulags. Only in the 1990s he's released just in time to take advantage of the capitalist boom and becomes a kajillionaire. Then he takes revenge.
This is what happens when I watch bad adaptations of The Count of Monte Cristo while revising for exams on the Soviet Union.
I also watched As You Like It – the Kenneth Branagh version – which I have very mixed feelings about.

I kind of want to write a story where Shaw tries to woo Lucas with poetry written in dactylic hexameter and Lucas sends it back pointing out how awful it is. Because he would.
Also, I'm terribly annoyed at myself for mixing up Linear A and Linear B. Linear A is Minoan, Linear B Mycaenean. Fuck. I lost a game of Blockbuster over it.
Gosh, that's an awful lot of babble. Sorry, everyone.
Also, sapphire_hime, I am very sorry, but I cannot find an Eid card anywhere. It's ridiculous and I am so, so sorry. Is a non-denominational Winter Wishes card all right?
Argh. So exhausted. I still haven't read half the stuff I need to for coursework, and I have to write 1000 words on it. Which is not going to happen, because prizegiving is tomorrow and attendance is compulsory. On the upside: no English essay to hand in. No other homework, in fact.
You know those times when you're looking for fic and you can't find any?
The most depressing part is when you do find some - and it's badly spelt, horribly punctuated and reads like a child's picture book. Especially porn. There are few things more dispiriting than bad porn. You read it anyway, because you're just that desperate.
And then you find the Holy Grail of fic that's quite-good-really-omg, and it's the best feeling ever.
What I'm trying to say is...everyone who comments to this post will receive a drabble in the fandom of their choice (so long as I know it). Anyone?
Give me any character from one of my fandoms and I will give you three facts from my personal canon about them.
I was at the magazine launch today and the café offered me a free milkshake because it was my birthday (which it isn't, actually - that's on Thursday) and then gave me a piece of cake because I finished the Guardian crossword for them. I might go back there. :D
