Crazily busy, but still, have a look at my desktop and 10 quick YGO drabbles.

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn your music player on and turn it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabblet/ficlet related to each song that plays. You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble; you start when the song starts, and stop when it's over. No lingering afterward! No matter how whacked out your drabble is. :)
4. Do ten of these, then post them.

Not That Girl, Wicked Musical, Mai/Jounouchi, Yugi/Anzu. )

Popular, Wicked Musical, Rebecca & Mai. )

Nazi Halo, Jack Off Jill, Yami no Bakura gen. )

Part Of Your World, The Little Mermaid, Cure Mermaid & Harpie's Brother. )

Snakes, Voltaire, Yami no Bakura/Seto. )

One Girl Revolution, Legally Blonde soundtrack, Varon+Mai, Jounouchi+Mai. )

Meant To Live, Switchfoot, Ryuuji gen. )

A Guy Like You, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Jounouchi/Mai, Yugi+Jounouchi. )

if he tries anything, ani di franco, Mai/Isis. )

Head On Collision, New Found Glory, Ryuuji/Seto. )

Yellow Brick Road, Jack Off Jill, Leon gen. )

Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop. It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun.
1. Go to your desktop and press the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key).
2. Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and doing a Paste (CTRL + V). If you wish, you can “edit” the image before saving it.
3. Post the picture on your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop if you want. You can explain why you prefer such a look or why it is full of icons. Things like that.
4. Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktops as well.

Who wrote 'em: [ profile] fickle_goddess aka [ profile] only_fiction

What it is: Rachel/Tobias, Animorphs. [used for thought speech]

What that means: Ten fics. Ten genres. Ten words or less.

Why you should try writing your own: It is so much harder than it looks. Really.

Why I'm crying on the inside: Because this really IS harder than it looks!

Other stuff I want to say: Want to see me do this for any other pairing other than the one I chose? Leave me a comment with the pairing and I'll do my best. I could use the writing exercise. XD Having actually written the meme results, NO WAY. Much too difficult to do multiple times. So only first five comments get to make requests.

Less than a hundred words of fic and I cut it anyway? )
fickle: (disney: esmeralda whee)
Snagged from [ profile] yamievandar, who snagged it from [ profile] misura who got it from [ profile] alighiera, who nicked it from [ profile] ariss_tenoh. Some of text has changed, but the basic point remains the same.

Her idea, is a one-sided private Yuletide, i.e. you get a story without having to write one in return. (This is a quote.) The rules are:

1. If you're on my FList, you get to play. If you're not on my FList but are reading this post, you also get to play.

2. You can request up to four different fandoms (or the same fandom four times, or whatever you want including crossovers as long as they are sensible i.e. do not require gigantic leaps of faith and suspension of doubt, reality and canon to work) - but please give me at least a character or pairing to work with and, if you wish, a phrase, setting, theme or whatever you want me to put in the story.

3. If there's something you absolutely want (or don't want) to see in your story, tell me.

4. You don't need to limit your requests to the fandoms I have listed below. Feel free to request any fandom at all, but keep in mind that the odds of me picking up a book are a lot better than the odds of me acquiring six seasons of a TV-show or a complete anime-series.

5. I will earnestly try to write at least one of your requests before the end of 2008.

The deadline for making requests is December 28th. The deadline for me to finish writing at least one of your requests is December 31st next year. My inner procrastinator likes this part quite a lot.

Also, if I owe anyone a GiftFic: I have probably forgotten what it is and lost the bunny for it. You can request it again here and it will be counted as part of the Yuletide thing. You can, of course, request something entirely different if you want. [ profile] brownie_utonium and [ profile] ceresi, you are exempted from this since I'm still working on your pieces.

My personal edit: If I can't write something, I'll graphic something up instead. Icons, banner, dolls, whatever. ♥ So you'll get SOMETHING, at least.

current fandoms! )

My preference tends to be for writing slash, but I'm fine with het and femmeslash too! One caveat: No requests for explicit sex scenes, please. I tend to suck at those, and not in the fun way. ♥ Fade to black is Fickle's friend!
fickle: (marik: eye of the hurricane)
[ profile] sickficfest is a comm that's centered around writing bad people doing very bad things.

Surely you can see why I'd be interested.

It's accepting prompts until the end of September, the prompts will be claimed during October and the actual fics will only be posted in February. How can I wait that long?!

If you don't have the time or patience to write, go submit prompts here anyway because I want to write and so far, there are only two fandoms that I could possibly write for. And I'm getting a little carried away with submitting prompts myself at the moment anyway.

her smile is black and every tooth is lettered
her canine teeth are enter keys and her tongue

Happy birthday, [ profile] abrandnewboom. I don't know HOW long you've had that new journal but I still started to type in your old journal name when I wrote that. XD May the new year be utterly awesome and filled with joy. And gay musicians.

In other equally-awesome news:


To celebrate, I'm writing drabbles for upto three female chars you pick. Any fandom that I usually write! Feel free to repost and share the squeeing over girl chars, if you want, but don't feel obligated to do so.

If you can't think of any fandoms I heart, try Animorphs, Archie Comics, Batman/DC*, Batman Beyond, Big Wolf on Campus, Boston Legal, Bruno and Boots, Chrestomanci, Cold Case, Discworld, Fables, Good Omens, Gravitation, Greek Mythology, Gundam Wing, Harry Potter, Hercules (Disney), Legally Blonde, Mighty Ducks, Mulan (Disney), Othello (the manga), Petshop of Horrors, Pokemon, Sailor Moon season R, Smallville, Spiderman, Stick It, Sweet Valley, The Authority, Utena Revolutionary Girl, Yu-Gi-Oh.

Femmeslash pairings are TOTALLY okay to request. So's het, but be warned that the focus will be on the female character, not on their relationship. ♥ If you want a fandom I haven't listed there but you know I like, go for it!

I'm going to start with the one that I just took from her. XD

Name a character I write and I'll tell you how s/he lost her/his virginity.
fickle: (only fiction)
Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

Taken from [ profile] a_white_rain, whom I am dearly fond of even if I have trouble reading through Tokyo Babylon and still need to watch Avatar. ♥ Stories can be found at [ profile] only_fiction, pick whatever you fancy. Or, if I've written drabbles for you in comments, feel free to poke me to write me for those as well.

5892 / 7000 words. 100% done, 70 dollars contributed!

This is NOT for NaNoWriMo. This is for the personal fundraiser post that I put up for the sake of the Pretty Bird Woman House women's shelter. It was burnt down by arsonists, it desperately needs donations so that it can be rebuilt, and I'm offering 1 cent per word for all the authors and fanficcers on my flist with consciences and time to write a drabble or a fic for a good cause.

Fic-contributers so far are [ profile] ceresi and [ profile] ohsnikt. *pokes her flist* There are 87 of you, it takes less than ten minutes to write a drabble, and it's for a good cause. Plus, you get a receipt to make you feel all warm and fuzzy.

Receipts so far are found here. )
fickle: (isis: look to the future)
Remember my post about the Pretty Bird Woman Shelter and how it needed donations to rebuild after having been burned down? [ profile] ceresi just posted about it again but this time, there's a twist. The following two paragraphs are taken directly from her post.

- [ profile] stonedtodeath is offering to donate one cent per word to the Pretty Bird Woman House. I think she's into bandslash and SPN, so if those are your fandoms and you've been looking for a way to donate, check out her post here.

- [ profile] mickeym is offering to write in exchange for donations. I can tell she's into SPN by the header of her journal, haha (mmmm, boys), so if that's your thing, go! Check out her post here.

I've now been inspired to do the same. This is my offer to donate on the behalf of other people who are low on cash but high on talent/creativity/enthusiasm.

Write me something and I'll donate a cent per word to the Pretty Bird Women House and post a screencap of a receipt that'll look like this so that'll you have some form of tangible proof of having done a good deed.

Fandoms that I heart are:

Animorphs, Archie Comics, Batman/DC*, Batman Beyond, Big Wolf on Campus, Bruno and Boots, Chrestomanci, Discworld, Fables, Good Omens, Gravitation, Greek Mythology, Gundam Wing, Harry Potter, Hercules (Disney), Mighty Ducks, Mulan (Disney), Othello (the manga), Petshop of Horrors, Pokemon, Sailor Moon season R, Smallville, Spiderman, Stick It, Sweet Valley, The Authority, Yu-Gi-Oh.

See? Plenty of options. And if you still want to make a donation through me but can't write for any of those fandoms, drop me a comment with what you can write for and I'll choose something. I really want to get as many people as possible involved in this somehow.

The fundraiser ends on the 31st of Jan, so you can drop in any time before then unless I run out of money before then. To keep track of how donations from this post are going, I'll be editing this every time someone contributes. Please feel free to link to this post in your own journal or spread it wherever you want.

fickle: (seto: digital nihilist)
So anyone want to have fun drabbling about Seto in the comments? All pairings and ratings welcome!

Aka, you drabble me, I drabble you back. Give me a challenge to do with Seto and I'll fill it, but I'll ask you for something Seto-centric back. And anyone who isn't me but sees a challenge they like, please feel free to take it! XD The more stuff produced, the better.

Edit: Icons and whatnot in honor of our digital god are totally acceptable too. ^_~
fickle: (disney: esmeralda whee)
First of all, thank you so much for signing up for one of my fandoms. And secondly, I'm sorry if any of my requests confused you, I know that I have a tendency to fall for the weirdest characters or pairings. XD

So, just a few basic things before I go into more detail -- I am definitely a fan of slash, I like fics that are dark and self-destructive or give you a really tight feel for what a particular character is like. I am definitely very hard to squick whether with sex, gore or violence.

Now down to the details of my requests. )

In conclusion, if those details are confusing or difficult to deal with, please don't worry about them and write whatever you feel capable of doing. And thank you in advance!

Oh, and if you want examples of fics/author that I especially love, [ profile] ceresi is especially awesome - there's a Tobias/Jake (Animorphs) that I cannot get enough of mostly for the writing style, and a Rachel drabble that breaks my heart every time. By other authors, this Regulus/Remus fic is a perfect example of the dark/twisted/conflicted/using themes that I love, and this Narcissa/Lily fic is gorgeously-written and dark as Black blood.

...Hopefully, that's enough recs and at least some of them fit whatever fandoms you're in!
fickle: (politics: gay people are everywhere)
So, as a result of the Dumbledore thing, I found out that Roger/Thom is canon (Alanna the Lionness series) which is also confirmed by the author here, that Warren Ellis doesn't get why it took so long for people to realize that Midnighter/Apollo IS canon and that Hugh Laurie, House's actor, would be willing to do a House/Wilson plot. Also, Hugh Laurie sounds like Blackadder. Worrying, that.

Oh yeah. Definitely a good time to be a slasher. Canon everywhere looks favorably upon us!

I am happy. ♥ I love it when fandom AND canon make me happy.

And to share the happiness, here's a meme I snagged from [ profile] cairnsy:

For the first three people that reply to me and re-post this challenge, I will send you something. It will be random and awesome, or perhaps just lame. Whatever it is, I promise that I will get it to you in 365 days or fewer.

The only thing you need to do in order to participate is to be one of the first three to reply to this, AND post this very same thing on YOUR LiveJournal - cause it's fun to give people stuff.

And I'll be watchin' my f-list to make sure you re-post! Because I am a stalker.

To counteract that happiness, here's a meme from [ profile] a_white_rain who is made of pure crack and making me read Tokyo Babylon and cheering on my Slade/Terra and Terra/Raven love:

Name three fics you think I will never, ever, ever write. In return, I will attempt to write a snippet of one of them.

Anyone who dares asks for three bits of thiefshipping will SUFFER, I swear it. ^_~ [ profile] fan_dancer, have yourself a ball with this :P

Edit: Auction of Wonder Woman Art with proceeds going to domestic violence shelters. The world is made of pure WIN at the moment. ♥
fickle: (catwoman: do I make you nervous?)
List twenty themes that appear in your fics.

1. Alienation.
2. Deception of the sort where it's only perfect on the outside.
3. Destructive relationships aka "I love you because I hate me."
4. Drug abuse.
5. Broken families.
6. Child abuse.
7. Living too quickly to keep up with yourself.
8. Masks.
9. Making ugly things pretty.
10. Lies and the way that people tell them.
11. Death.
12. Loyalty, misguided but real.
13. Secrets that aren't told and secrets that are known but not acknowledged.
14. Betrayal, especially from family or lovers or friends.
15. Obsessive love, preferably the kind that has to do with addiction/destruction.
16. Rebirth, phoenix-style.
17. Hope.
18. Failure.
19. Disappearances/abandonment.
20. Friendship of the type that comes when you recognize someone as being you in a different skin.

Taken from Sian and AJ! Name, btw, translates to a short summary of the fic, not a title. *already knows that Dani will probably do the best job of squicking her out*

[ profile] 9tails, I already did the 10 weird facts about myself meme ages ago, so I'm declaring your tag for it invalid, okay? ^_~

And everyone else, if you need a refresher on what my fandoms are, here:

Animorphs, Archie Comics, Batman/DC*, Batman Beyond, Bruno and Boots, Canterella, Chrestomanci, Discworld, Good Omens, Gravitation, Greek Mythology, Gundam Wing, Harry Potter, Hercules (Disney), Mighty Ducks, Mulan (Disney), Naruto, Othello (the manga), Petshop of Horrors, Pokemon, Sailor Moon season R, Smallville, Spiderman, Stick It, Sweet Valley, The Authority, The Charioteer, Yu-Gi-Oh, William Brown books.

*Not sure I can write all chars, but I'll tell you if I can't.

Crossovers will both make me headdesk and laugh. XD So feel to go for those, if you like. *looks at [ profile] ego_chan, [ profile] pikachumaniac and [ profile] 9tails meaningfully.*

If you've heard me talk about a fandom or know I can write for it (like the random Anastasia request that Sian once made for Rasputin/Bartok), then go ahead and request it, even if it's not on the list. Utena, however, got removed purposefully because I'm still battling [ profile] cairny's Xmas fic, so I'm not touching that fandom until I get hers done. ♥

Also, Savior got me into House last night. And I still haven't finished Fruits Basket! I weep.

Welcome to the Yu-Gi-Oh Anti-Hate Fest! Let's keep the fandom alive and kicking through writing drabbles or making icons, because let's face it, celebrating the reasons you love a fandom is way more productive than griping about it or the other people in it. Drabbles and icons last, and you can show them off proudly -- anon comments don't, and negativity is toxic anyway.

The rules of participation are simple!

If you're signing up to create, then just drop your username along with a line or two about if you do fic or icons or both, and which chars or pairings you like especially. If you're making a request, either comment in response to someone that you know can write what you want, or drop a comment of your own, stating what you're asking for, and whoever comes across it can fill out your request. Multiple responses to one request are awesome, so feel free to reply to a request even if someone else already has.

All ratings, all pairings, and all characters welcome, as long as it has to do to with Yu-Gi-Oh. Any author or graphic maker who wants to play is more than welcome to jump in!

Also, if you've been recently been friended by someone you don't want to have anything to do with, the ban_set command is your friend since it'll stop them displaying on your 'Friend Of' list.

I'm tired and headachy in weird on-off bouts so instead posting this on V-Day proper, I'm giving myself a little extra time.

If you want a V-Day/anti V-Day drabble, comment here with the fandom/pairing/prompt. Flavors are make up, break up, and hook up. You have to say which you're choosing otherwise I will probably default to break up for the fun of writing many screaming arguments and assassination attempts. I'm sure there are people psycho enough to do that in my fandoms.

"You hired an ASSASSIN to go after me?! Couldn't you just have taken me out to dinner and dumped me in public like a normal person?!"
"You don't like normal people."
"You're trying to kill me! I don't like you anyway!"
"That's why we're breaking up."
"No, we're breaking up because you're a bastard."
"I thought that was what you liked about me."
"Don't be so loud."
"I thought that was what you liked about me."
"Except when you're trying to kill my eardrums."
"Ha. Ha. Ha. Rubber, glue. Pot, Kettle."
"Amusing, not amusing. Inteligent, unintelligent."
"Insult to injury much?"
"Why are you still alive?"
"Because I refuse to let you kill me and dump me both. My ego would never survive."
"It's not your ego you need to worry about."
"Yes. Now stop shouting."
"Why did you just save my life if you're trying to get me killed?"
"Because that's not the assassin I hired."
"Nobody except you gets to dispose of me?"
"Possessive bastard."

I'll write any pairing except thiefshipping, even if you want to get them broken up.

Random fandoms I know I'm into: Animorphs, Archie Comics, Batman/DC*, Batman Beyond, Bruno and Boots, Chrestomanci, Discworld, Good Omens, Gravitation, Gundam Wing, Harry Potter, Hercules (Disney), Mulan (Disney), Naruto, Othello (the manga), Petshop of Horrors, Pokemon, Sailor Moon season R, Smallville, Spiderman, Stick It, The Authority, The Charioteer, Utena, Yu-Gi-Oh, William Brown books.

*shaky. I can write for some chars but not for others and will tell you if your request looks unmanageable.

Oh, and make as many requests as you like. I'll try to fill at least one per person but feel free to make more or throw this link to anyone you want. Or repost the offer in your journal, I really don't mind.
fickle: (only fiction)
Give me a fandom I don't know but has been talked about on my flist, a one-word theme (object, place, thought, feeling), and I'll write you a drabble.

In other words, if you talk about it in your journal entries but know I know nothing about it except what I'd read, go ahead and make a request. XD Stolen from [ profile] a_white_rain but altered for extra hilarity.
fickle: (only fiction)
Snagged from [ profile] cereta. I've often thought that the more unhappy I am, the less I update my journal and write fic. 2006 was a pretty sucky year, hence not much fic but I went ahead and did this fic meme anyway. Results are tucked neatly away under a cut to keep them from clogging up your flist. ♥
