Because clearly I am bored and rather than finish what I should be doing, I'm procrastinating wildly.

Give me:
- A pairing/combination of characters
- An alternate universe

...and I will write you three sentences (or more if I feel like it).

Last year this ridiculousness spawned various spin-offs, including a novel, a deranged mini-series, and a fic that I still think is pretty good. No guarantees that I'll be similarly inspired this year; three sentences is all you may get. Umm, first ten to comment, shall we say? Watch me only get two comments now XD

ETA: Obviously I need to be familiar with the fandom, which cuts out most mainstream stuff since I like obscure shit.

ETA 2: Got the ten, thank you!

In other news, I'm going yarn-bombing tomorrow. This will only be of interest to [ profile] acornmama.

Obviously it has to be a fandom I'm familiar with :p

I am still asleep. Zzzzzzz.

ETA: Meme closed XD The twisted results will be delivered in due course :p

1. Reply to this post with 'sparkles!', and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

[ profile] rheasilvia picked these:

The rules: All characters depicted in my icons are listed and paired off in alphabetical order. I've arranged them by surname. A couple of icons are a bit too weird for inclusion (e.g. Hulk Smash) and for those with two people on them, er, it's a threesome?


Well, that was weird o_O But a good example of Things I Will Never Write though I could be persuaded about the last one because Mimi in hanfu unf

* Mansai's film Nobou no Shiro has been put back until autumn 2012.

* Yesterday we went to Market Weighton for lunch and talked about Glee fic for an hour or so. Good coffee (no syrup, though) and excellent food, so will go there again. Also not too far to travel, and much nicer than Selby. The brilliant sunshine helped.

* Have been re-reading [ profile] satanael's old fics. Good times.

* Baa baa black sheep: the fandom kink meme, seen just about everywhere )

From [ profile] karadin, this LOLarious 'writing analysis' thing!

I write like
Douglas Adams

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

I can't work out if the result is absolutely random or if it's based on certain keywords turning up. I'm leaning towards keywords. According to this highly scientific analysis, if I put in my Nico/Nels sci-fi WIP, I write like Douglas Adams. One of my Onmyoji fics makes me Nabokov. The story I have to get finished by August 1 tells me I'm Chuck Palahniuk (who?). An old R+ fic says I'm James Joyce. Tragically, yesterday's Bob/Fernando fic only rated as a Dan Brown ROFL!! What an insult, even my pron is 100x more intelligent than anything Dan Brown could produce! Wonder if there's a Stephanie Meyer result?

I'm still tired - had about ten hours sleep over the weekend. I did nod off for about five minutes during the GP but that wasn't enough!

We're going to Shropshire tomorrow for a few days' break. I look forwards to doing very little.

In lieu of anything else interesting to say, the icon meme is doing the rounds again.

Six picked by the lovely [ profile] fanged_angel.

Back on Friday. Toodle-pip!

Nicked from [ profile] deltachild, as clearly I would rather be dossing about than writing pron.

1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb, and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. No Googling/using IMDb search functions.

I had to drop one of my all-time favourite films because I couldn't find a quote from it and I couldn't be arsed to put the DVD on and grab something at random.

[ profile] aitakute tagged me!

Firstly: If you've been tagged, you must write your answers in your own LJ and replace any question that you dislike with a new, original question.
Secondly: Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.

I hate tagging people so if you want to go for it, go right ahead.

weird answers to weird questions )

This degenerated into LOL very quickly. There’s no order within the top fives.
Top 5 heroes...F1 drivers to adopt, cougar after and clean up after...Asian OTPs...animals on ZL’s farm…historical periods to write…historical shags )

My mother is attempting some home improvement at my brother’s place. She got there last night and called me. Today she called me again: “Tell your brother there are 25-30 holes in the wall of James’s room and all the Artex will have to come off the ceiling because it’s falling down!”

I don’t think my bro will give a damn but whatever, message duly passed on. I bet she’ll ring me every day she’s up here. After all, I am only 2 hours’ drive away in the next county.

I felt very much like The Good Housewife this morning as I got up just before 7am and made curry for tonight.

As I've been busy these last few days, here's a somewhat belated bunch of pics from last week's hols. LOL of the trip was going to the local pub one evening for a meal. At about 7pm there was a bit of a racket outside that sounded like those really huge three-wheeler motorbike things backfiring. When we came out of the pub later, there was a helicopter on the lawn beside the car park. Yes, a HELICOPTER. A small one, but nevertheless, a helicopter.

Apparently Helicopter Dude lives in Oswestry, which is about 35 miles from Much Wenlock. Granted, the roads are narrow and slow, but still, normal people would take the car.

I sent in an RFC this week and have another two possibles to make a decision on next week. The tech person found that a whole bunch of subs had got caught in some filter or other, so I now have 10 subs to sort through. Fortunately I can junk at least half of those as unsuitable (someone sent in poetry. We don't publish poetry. Amazing how many people don't pay attention to the guidelines).

F1 Fic o'Doom

Observe the new estimated wordcount. I've finished 3 chapters out of 28. Yargh. Michael's feeble attempt at a comeback has only changed sub-plot A. I am beginning to find Martin Whitmarsh (sub-plot B) strangely likeable.

Meme time! Nicked from everyone else.
Ask me my fannish Top Five [whatevers]. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! And I will answer them all in a new post.

The "You Should Write..." Meme!
my thread here

My flu is slowly fading, and though I have the Epic F1 Fic o'Doom in its preliminary stages, and about 15 other fics (RC, M&S, KT, etc) I have intentions toward this year, let's see what this brings.

Also: [ profile] diagon bought me the Watchmen DVD. EEEEEE.

From [ profile] deltachild and [ profile] sandrine...

• Post ten of any pictures currently on your hard drive that you think are self-expressive.
• NO CAPTIONS!!! It must be like we're speaking with images and we have to interpret your visual language just like we have to interpret your words.
• They must ALREADY be on your hard drive - no googling or flickr! They have to have been saved to your folders sometime in the past. They must be something you've saved there because it resonated with you for some reason.
• You do NOT have to answer any questions about any of your pictures if you don't want to. You can make them as mysterious as you like. Or you can explain them away as much as you like.

my mind, it's a strange yet predictable place )
