I haven't written too much, and I want to at least try, so:

Give me a character (no repeats, please!) and a lyric, or a few lyrics, from a song that hits you right in the feels.

Because I am fucking sick of not writing, I'm throwing out a remix of the Music Is My Boyfriend meme, which I adore.

Warning: F-bombs. Warning #2 - I am a walking Hamilton advertisement.

If you want the code, it's here at the challenge post!

I owe everyone an apology. I submitted a stocking for fandom_stocking this year, and I haven't filled a single one yet.

So. Give me a character, a pairing, a word, a phrase, a sentence, a picture, whatever, and I'll write something for you.

I can't make any guarantees about the length of fills. It may even be a pithy fifty words. But I will fill every prompt you guys send my way on this post.

I love you all.
s2309: (writing)
What it says on the tin. There are a million other things I should be writing, but first, I need my writing mojo back. I haven't written in over a month.

I'll be filling prompts in the comments, probably in order, but I don't know yet. It will probably all be shit. I do not care. I'm gonna write.

This challenge is originally by Sunshockk on deviantart.

Also, yes, I'm alive. I may or may not throw out a life updates post later. It may or may not be flocked.
s2309: (writing)
Because I'm mildly insane, and in a writing kind of mood, have a meme!

Reply to this post by giving me a character from any fandom you know I know, and five words; I'll tell you in five ficlets how those words might be associated with the character, however weirdly...

Obviously, I'll take time with the fills, but hopefully, they'll provide an interesting break from studying and writing :D

So this is a thing I found somewhere on the LJ internet, and was going to post as soon as tests got over, but turns out, I'm a forgetful person.

Pick two numbers from 1 to 1544 and give me a character or a pairing (friendship pairings are totally cool also), and I will write you a ficlet thing based on one of the songs that the numbers represent!

Two numbers because I am unbelievably finicky about songs and whether or not they go with a character/pairing and you picking two songs increases the odds of you picking a song that I feel goes with the character/pairing you picked. If you get lucky and both songs fit the character/pairing, you may just get two ficlets! If you get super unlucky and both songs are songs I can't or won't write to, you can just pick more numbers. C:

White Collar is obviously my main fandom, but I'm willing to try my hand at Agent Carter, Agents of SHIELD, and... yeah, that's it. I still feel like I don't know enough about Natasha Romanoff to write her, sadly. And besides, I'm barely in these fandoms.

You should have seen me before this post though, I was downloading music like it was necessary for every song I've ever loved to be in my iTunes before this meme. (They keep disappearing because the drive I store my music on keeps crashing. Oh, the sweet days when I actually had all the songs I love.) I failed, because even I cannot download a thousand songs in an evening.

I wanted to wait a day or two before I posted this, but I figured I could just edit it later :)

[livejournal.com profile] elrhiarhodan asked for Neal/Rachel with the opening stanza of Annie Lennox' "Walking on Broken Glass" as inspiration. That spawned the metal wraps itself around your bones. Both of these, you want to be careful around. Especially the latter.

[livejournal.com profile] aragarna asked for Peter/El - "You've got the sweetest eyes I have ever seen". Which was fun! :D

[livejournal.com profile] theatregirl7299 asked for Neal/Diana, which deals with hearing loss and will hopefully spawn a more organized, longer, less chaotic fic.

[livejournal.com profile] percygranger asked for June/Byron or Diana/Christie, romance. She got both. And I really want to explore that further, but I don't know if I'm in the right mood for it. I've been rather... destructive... lately.

[livejournal.com profile] turtlebaby_02 asked for Neal/of my choice, "Should I stay or should I go now? If I go there will be trouble, And If I stay it will be double." Knowing her, I picked Peter ;)

[livejournal.com profile] reve_silencieux asked for Neal/Sara, morning. (mostly because I asked her to, and she kindly obliged :D)

...except, I am well known for failing hugely at writing to prompts. But, considering that the word 'treat' means that fills can be short and don't have to eat my brain (but oh god, I know they will), I think I'm going to go for this. Wish me luck!

The first five people who come trick or treating at my door will get at least 75-100 words of a something. All you have to do is comment with "trick or treat!" and leave me a prompt or a pairing or a character or a song lyric or anything inspirational, really. And please post this at your own journal so I can come trick-or-treating at your place!

OMG I got tagged. *falls over*. Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] elrhiarhodan!!

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends.

1 Peoplewatching by Desmond Morris
2 Gifted by Nikita Lalwani
3 Love Virtually by Daniel Glattauer
4 The Denial of Death by Ernest Becker (reading this right now, so this is kinda cheating, but.)
5 Open by Andre Agassi
6 Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell
7 Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
8 Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? by Edward Albee
9 My Children! My Africa! by Athol Fugard (the last few are lit texts, what am i doing with my life? *headdesk*)
10 Little Women, Good Wives, Little Men and Jo's Boys by Louisa Alcott (I'm not sure what the series is called, but I *love* all the books in it)

There are many more books that touched me in some way, but these are all that I can remember right now.

I'm tagging [livejournal.com profile] reve_silencieux, [livejournal.com profile] turtlebaby_02, [livejournal.com profile] treonb, [livejournal.com profile] mizz_destiny, [livejournal.com profile] love_82, [livejournal.com profile] sallymn, and anyone who hasn't done the meme yet who I could have accidentally missed, because picking out names from my flist is so stressful, omg.

From my Masterlist (which is still not updated, shame on me, so feel free to flick through my fandom: white collar tag for fics that aren't over there yet), find a fic and choose a passage.

Then, post your passage in the comments below, and I will try to guess which fic it's from. If I get it correct, I'll share some information about the story - backstory, character motivation, possible future story ideas or cookies, etc. If I get it wrong, you'll give me a brief A/U prompt and character(s) for a brief ficlet.

This is also an excuse to show off my shiny new Neal icon :DDD

This is also going up now because hopefully, I post a bit of fic tonight. I've been weirdly active on LJ as of the past two days. ....is my muse (*gasp*) cooperating?! Let's hope this lasts!
s2309: (writing)
I've been writing, but all of it is so unpolished and not worthy of being posted quite yet. I hope to post stuff soon! In the meanwhile, here, have a meme :D Code ganked from [livejournal.com profile] elrhiarhodan.

Go to my Masterlist (I'll update it by tonight, I promise!) (I didn't. Who's surprised?) and pick a passage from my stories, up to 500 words, and comment to this post with that selection (including a link to the story being excerpted will be very helpful).

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. You can ask me anything - character motivation, writing process, or if you disagree with the direction I took in a story, ask me to defend it.

Code ganked from [livejournal.com profile] elrhiarhodan. This looks like fun!!

There are forty writerly questions below the cut. Take a look and give me the numbers for up to four of the questions, and I’ll answer them the best that I can.

Day 30 - Your favourite song at this time last year

According to LJ, the songs I was listening to at this time last year were...
(With me, the songs I'm listening to are generally my favourites at the time, so this works :D)


Home by Dishwalla. This is a beautiful, comforting song. It's one of the happier songs in my gigantic iTunes. I like it.

youtube )
lyrics )


Destiny - Syntax. This song is intense! I love the beat, I'm not so fond of the lyrics - I'm not a determinist, I don't believe that we don't have a choice - but the song's great to listen to :D

youtube )
lyrics )

And, since I can't believe that I haven't added a single Florence + The Machine song in these thirty days:-


Breath Of Life by Florence + The Machine. Florence has a choir backing her, and the choir still fades in comparison with her voice. This is the song that made me fall in love with the band. I haven't linked to the official video because the song's been edited down to three and something minutes when it's actually four and something minutes.

youtube )
lyrics )

And it's over. :'(
