(why thank you, [ profile] fringedweller)

~~Ask me a fandom-related question in the comments. This can be fandom specific, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general. Questions can be as wacky as you want. Ask me about tv shows, characters, fanfic in general, fandom issues/meta, anything about any of my stories specifically. Whatever you want.~~

1. Go to page 77 (or 7) of your current wip.
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences – and post them as they’re written.

'Current' is to be interpreted liberally, although it's due the 7th so I ought to get cracking.

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

My stuff is either tagged by fandom on LJ (I tagged at the bottom for your convenience) or at AO3. (I think there are 2 or 3 stories on LJ that aren't on AO3, and at least one on AO3 that never made it to LJ.)

So [ profile] urbancate is having a comment fic meme over here, and it is awesome and you should go and prompt things and fill other people's prompts and all that stuff.

And of course I wrote something for it:

Title: I Bet His Mama Never Told Him Why (on AO3)
Fandom: Marvel Cinematic (Avengers) Universe
Summary: It's not going to work out
Pairing/Characters: Natasha/Steve; Pepper, Clint, and Tony also show up.
Rating: PG, because Tony Stark makes everyone drop f-bombs
Content Advisory: I can't think of anything.
Word Count: 900
Notes: For [ profile] sleepygoof8784's prompt of Steve/Natasha, Date a nice guy.

Natasha knows it won't work out even before it happens. )

Give me a fandom and a character/pairing/group and I will write snippets of ten (or however many I can/want to do) different alternate universes for it. If you have a preference for a specific flavor of AU from the list, kindly state such.

1. Single-Point Divergence (state your point of divergence or deal with what I make up, which may be seriously wonky)
2. Always Already Another Gender
3. High School/College
4. Historical (state your period, although medieval = not my fave)
5. Kidfic
6. Dystopia
(I don't know what happened to 7? make something up?)
8. Superpowers/All Normal
9. High Fantasy
10. Other Career AU (barista, bakery, politician, race-car driver, military, spies, office, etc. State your Other Career, or I will make up something really, really weird. or, worse, really, really normal).


Any of my tagged fandoms are fine or if you want to throw something at me that you happen to know I read/watch, that's fine. *shrug* I'm busy but bored at the moment, so.

1. Go to page 77 (or 7) of your current ms. (Page 7, as I currently have 76 pages.)
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. (Well, not exactly. I shifted it all down a bit so it made more sense.)
4. Encourage other people to do it!

Why not?

Stolen from [ profile] sharpestscalpel, because that's how I roll:

In a continuing quest to do everything ever fannishly other than the things I should be doing, I'm going to steal a post from [various people] and ask if you have any questions re: any of the stories I've written - what happens before, after, or in that scene in the middle that never got written, what the other characters were thinking about [x], whatever you've wondered about. (I can't promise I'll have a very good answer for everything, but you could very well get a new little ficlet in the verse out of it. \o/?)

When I write a story, what do you immediately look for?

Prompt me! Go for it! Give me a character, pairing, and a single word prompt and I'll write three sentences based on it! My brain needs to be jump-started.

(stolen from [ profile] urbancate. I definitely need a jump-start.)

Can also give me a multi-word prompt. It's cool. And you know it'll be more than 3 sentences. And it'll probably take forever. And it's fine to remind me about prompts I swore I'd fill for you. :)
circ_bamboo: (Default)

Here's how it works:
1. Post a list of your five favorite acts/kinks/themes/tropes to read about. Check out THIS list if you need some inspiration. At the bottom, add what fandoms/pairings you're interested in.
2. Go HERE and post a link to your list. Read other people's lists (here).
3. Write comment-fic (or longer pieces) based off of other people's lists. Post either the fics or a link to the fic in the person's post.

my list, all pretty much obvious things )

From [ profile] rubynye, although I did not leave her a prompt:

Comment with a fandom and two characters, and any prompt you'd like to give. I'll tell you about a time when they kissed.

(Fluffy prompts appreciated.)

(If I have at least a passing awareness of the canon, I will try to write it, but regular readers will know that the vast majority of what I write is Trek.)
circ_bamboo: (awesome)
2. I will give you a letter.
3a. Post the names of five fictional characters [starting with that letter] and your thoughts on each.
3b. Post the titles of five songs [starting with that letter] and your thoughts on each.

rubynye gave me N and T )

Uh, meme?

I guess we're supposed to announce who we are on AO3 and suggest that people subscribe to us?

Well, I'm faviconcirc_bamboo, as one might guess, and so far my fandoms involve:

Star Trek (2009): 25
Castle: 1

... so, yeah.

Um, to entice you: I have posted one story over there that I don't think I ever posted over here. Go find it! :)

ETA: Okay, now it's

Star Trek (2009): 25
Castle: 1
NCIS: 1.

For me to do tomorrow after I wake up, and in between edits on my round 2 entry for [ profile] st_respect:

Ask me about a pairing (or character) I have written (or haven't and you think I should write) and I will give you five facts about them or a ficlet or a song that is CLEARLY THEIR SONG or what they order from the Chinese place down the street, etc, etc.
circ_bamboo: (awesome)
Pick a passage from my stories, up to 500 words, from anything I've written in this journal, and comment to this post with that selection (including a link to the story being excerpted). I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the story, awful puns [perhaps], and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

Knock yourselves out. Most of my stuff is under this tag: Star Trek. If you really want to know about the single Castle story or the NCIS story, um, damn. Thanks? They're under the links to the fandoms directly.

Out of utter curiosity, if I was chained up in your attic (I prefer attics, basements are damp and cold, attics theoretically at least have windows), and I had to write you one story, what would you request? (demand?) Or alternatively, what's something you always hoped I'd write but know is never going to happen?

Have a meme.

(Also, possible comment!fic-fest tomorrow. Maybe.)

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request ~something~ of any pairing/character of their choosing from me. In return, they have to post this in their journal. If you absolutely can't write, you can offer drawings or icons or something instead (meta? picspams? reasons why that character/pairing rocks/doesn't rock?).

... also, it may not come for a couple weeks as I've got something big due on the 27th and I'll be out of town after that.
