When you see this, share 3 random lines from 3 WIPs.

  1. "DI Lestrade. Pleasure to meet you." American voice. Sounded like a young man's. The answer to American or Irish was, apparently, American.
  2. "So," Gojyo said. "When the fuck were you going to tell me? Were you gonna wait until I'd killed somebody?"
  3. Mamoru was too old for these stupid games. But of course, he was too old to do anything else, too. Too far along in his career--both careers--to retire. Too old and well-known to disappear.

Late is better than never...I hope.

For [personal profile] red_squared, Yohji and Omi/Mamoru, short shorts. This turned out darker than I planned.

Short shorts )

For [personal profile] lauand, Hakkai and Gojyo have been around the weird so long that the normal rings false:

That can't be right )

Stolen from [personal profile] emungere because I'm tired of angsting over WIPs and feel like I've abandoned my flist entirely.

Give me a pairing/character + theme/object and I'll write about a dream. Probably a ficlet, might even be as disciplined as a drabble. :D

lady_ganesh: (Gojyo)
Stolen from [personal profile] momebie because wow, do I need to write something.

Pick a trope from this list and provide a fandom/pairing and I’ll tell you something about the story I’d write for that combination (i.e. write a snippet from the story or write not!fic or tell you the title and summary for the story I would write)

1. genderswap
2. bodyswap
3. drunk!fic
4. huddling for warmth
5. pretending to be married
6. secretly a virgin
7. amnesia
8. cross-dressing
9. forced to share a bed
10. truth or dare
11. historical AU
12. accidental-baby-acquisition
13. apocalypse fic
14. telepathy
15. High School / College AU

I have a lot of fandoms. Don't forget Teen Wolf, where I pretty much ship everyone/everyone.
lady_ganesh: Kakashi does the sexy jutsu. Oh yes. (sexy no Kakashi (Naruto))
Stolen from [personal profile] viridian5 and what feels like half the Internets.

Top ten fics, by hits on AO3:

10. Love Is Goodbye (The We Will Become Stars remix), Saiyuki. The only fic from my most-written fandoms on the list, and the only remix. Happily, it's one of the stories I'm the most proud of.

9. Best. Mom. Ever, Futurama. The first but not last appearance of Yuletide! Also the only Futurama fic I've ever written. I wish I'd had more time to work on this one, honestly, I think it would've been even better.

8. Viewpoint, Naruto. The first but not last appearance of Kakashi/Iruka. There's actually quite a bit of humor fic on this list.

7. Twelve Easy Steps, Naruto. Humor again and Kakashi/Iruka again.

6. Lazy Sunday, Young Avengers. Another Yuletide Madness story, but I'm happier with this one.

5. Just Another Job, Leverage. This is the first fic in the list that's really 100% ship-free, and one of the first stories I wrote for [profile] purim_gifts. This Leverage thing is still popular, apparently. :D

4. Four chemicals Lestrade was glad Sherlock quit, two he tolerated, and one he decided he rather liked, the first but not last appearance of Sherlock. I still kind of wish they hadn't given Lestrade an ex/wife in Series 2 so I could pretend this 'verse was canon. Yes, I am that much of a loser.

3. Whatever Gets You Through the Night, another BBC Sherlock fic, was already pretty high on the hit list, but then it got remixed, and the numbers bounced up again.

2. Under the Skin, also known as the Sherlock bodyswap fic. I fucking love this story, dumb as the premise is, and it too benefited in hits from getting remixed.

But so far the highest numbers belong to...

1. Travel, Petshop of Horrors. I've only written two Petshop fics, and they're both in the top twenty of my hit list. I think in part it's because it's such an 'old favorite,' a classic and one that both ended in a reasonable amount of time and in a pretty satisfying way yes, I am looking at you, xxxHolic and every shonen series ever written. The #2 story is approaching its numbers at this point, and I'm actually a little sad about it. It's rather dear to me; it was another Yuletide Madness fic, and I really liked the way it came out. And of course, with Madness, I was rushing for a beta and all that stuff, and it's always fun when something you've done so quickly comes out so well - and clearly strikes a chord.
lady_ganesh: Ageha giving the victory sign (ageha (RH plus))
Just FYI, I am caught up on DW but not at all on LJ. I STILL LOVE YOU ALL.

1. the most fabulous giant robot EVER
I like Sandrock, Quatre's Gundam, mostly because of the name, honestly. Plus being Quatre's Gundam, there's a certain inherent level of fabulousness, don't you think?

2. writing AUs
Writing AUs is my happy place. I think putting the characters in new places and having them react to different circumstances shows a lot about who they essentially are. I love reading them too, as you probably already know. Having said that, I think some canons (Weiss, Saiyuki, Sherlock) suit universe-altering AUs better than others (TMNT, KKM).

3. cats!
We have two cats and they are totally adorkable. I love hearing about other people's cats too. When I was a kid my allergies were pretty nasty and I couldn't have any animals until I was 11 or 12, so it's nice to have little fuzzy friends around.

4. essential writing reference books/materials
I wrote about Writers Inc. for [community profile] fandom_grammar back in the day, and I am still fond of the AP Stylebook. I tend to rely on Wikipedia and Google search for most of my reference work; the high-end air travel I talked about in Pop Life mostly came from an article about the best first-class accommodations.

5. the most influential book you've read
Sure of You, the first book I read in Armistead Maupin's "Tales of the City" series. Maupin showed something that felt a little like Utopia, even in the worst of times. In an excellent coincidence, the topic came up in Salon today.

6. food
I love food. There's pretty much no kind of food I won't try, though I do refuse some meats. (BUNNY. And no way I'm trying frog legs after growing up on the Muppet Movie.) Still, the best food in the world remains Korean barbecue.

7. no regrets
Not much any more. Thank dog for antidepressants, lol.

Want seven things? Let me know!

lady_ganesh: A Clue card featuring Miss Scarlett. (sakura)
I stole this with a change from [personal profile] 7veils:

1. Post me a favorite paragraph from one of your fics, or one of your favourite authors' fics, or one of my fics --- something with a lot of mood, atmosphere, emotion; something that makes you laugh, cry, or jump up and down with excitement.

2. I will choose a song or piece of music which I think goes along with your fic.

3. If it's in my personal database, I will upload it onto sendspace or some similar ftp site for you to enjoy. Or, I will find a youtube link which corresponds.

It'll probably be a YouTube link because my music is on another hard drive, but let's try!
lady_ganesh: A Clue card featuring Miss Scarlett. (Default)
Stolen from [personal profile] rosehiptea with one change:

Tell me a pairing you know I ship (or have shipped, or have written, or that you think is funny) and I'll tell you...

1. who is the big spoon/little spoon
2. what is their favorite non-sexual activity
3. who uses all the hot water in the morning
4. what they order from take out
5. what is the most trivial thing they fight over
6. who does most of the cleaning
7. who controls what they watch on TV
8. who's the one to always push to go out for a change
9. who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working
10. who steals the blankets
11. who leaves their stuff around
12. who remembers to buy the milk
13. who remembers anniversaries

If these questions seem wildly inappropriate for some couple you're thinking of you can still ask and I'll do my best! If I really can't sail on the ship in question for whatever reason, I'll ask you for something else.

I've had some new folks friend me lately (HIIIII) so just for the record, you are always welcome to comment/request things, whether I've friended/followed you back or not. ♥ I just try to keep the flist at a manageable rate.

lady_ganesh: A Clue card featuring Miss Scarlett. (sakura)
In honour of All Hallow's Eve, I'm inviting trick-or-treaters to my 'door.' Comment "trick-or-treat" to this post and...well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a few words why I'm glad to have you on my flist, etc. etc.). The more "houses" to visit the more fun it'll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!

Knowing me, there may be lots of pictures of cats. CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED.

I will post the names of all the files in my WIP folder(s), regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous. Choose one (1), and I will post a random line or two.

These are the ALA's top 100 banned or challenged books from 2000-2009. Bold the ones you've read, italicize the ones you mean to.

From [personal profile] rosehiptea:

Go look at your blog journal. Find the last Fandom-related thing you posted. The characters in that post are now your team-mates in the Zombie Apocalypse. How fucked are you?

I've got Hisoka and Tatsumi.

I think I'm in pretty good shape.
lady_ganesh: A Clue card featuring Miss Scarlett. (knitting's hip dammit)
Apparently my skip=etc only goes back about fourteen days. If I'd realized this I would've checked my flist far sooner.

Point to LJ, I guess.

So this entry isn't just pointless bitchery, have a meme, from [profile] mainekosama and others:

1. Find a title.
Any title, be it hauntingly, lyrically beautiful, irresistably quirky or awe-inspiringly insipid.

2. Share it!
Leave the title in the comments.

3. Let me find the story your title should have.
I'll tell you a little bit about the story that I feel fits your title (which may or may not be the story I would have written for the title in question).

4. If you want, post this in your own LJ.
Find stories for other people's titles!

Ganked from [personal profile] meganbmoore. Ones I've seen are bolded.

1001 Movies to See Before You Die )

Some movies have been added, lol. This is also really obviously an American list, and one with kind of a weird cultural memory at that. Still, it's kind of fun to do-- I figured I'd have a lot of 'good' periods and some deserts, and it's a bit more spread out.

EDITED to html better.

Stolen from [personal profile] whymzycal:

Post the first lines from your last 20 stories. Do you see a pattern?

This is everything but Remix because Remix is still sekret.

I like to establish place in my first lines, clearly.
