If you read this, even if we don't speak often, please leave a comment to this post with a memory you have of you and me. It can be anything you want - good or bad. Once you've left a comment, post this little paragraph on your journal and be surprised (or mortified) about what people remember about you. Any 'verse, point in canon or random encounter between you and me is welcome.
Here is one I've run before. Fics will eventually get finished.

Snagged from [ profile] dragonsinger

Give me two characters from different fandoms you know I'm familiar with, and I'll give you a dialogue happening between the two of them. Without justifying how the crossover would work, how their worlds clashed, or how they could even meet each other. Just a silly crossover conversation with no backstory, for fun.
Kind of end of year fic review, but with the added challenge of memeish stuff.

Can you identify these fics? )

Icon meme

Dec. 6th, 2008 04:44 pm
Picked up from [ profile] amazonstorm.

Reply to this post and I will pick six of your icons.
Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
This will create a never ending cycle of icon glee.

She actually picked these out a while ago, but... life happened. (I think I've covered most of these on "Waxing Wildly", but it's always refreshing to look at my icons.)

My icons )
And I have finished NaNoWriMo. Yay! (Kercollapse) Now if I'd only managed a complete plot outline for novel #1. *sigh* But thanks to Meg Cabot's little pep talk, I did finish!

In the typo department, here's one that was a bit Tomorrow People-influenced:

"If you two promise to not break out in the car," Emery's grandmother said, "I'll leave you to your fun."

(The funny thing is, Emery can apport - teleport other things - and possibly teleport herself, so....)

Between the full novel and the aborted one, I managed about 65,000 words. Whew!

Now, I'll post the last bit of the novel to [ profile] esti_rise at some point in the next 24 hours. I also want to put together all of novel #2's posts (so far) and add them to a master post that can be added to the Queen's Gambit post on [ profile] estorise (I have plot bunnies complaining about wanting a rewrite on a fic I've got as a WIP).

I couldn't have done it without the web program "Write or Die". The novel might have been less cohesive because of it, but it got me through. ("Write or Die" is very useful for NaNo. The fic "Worn Down Blood" was also mostly written in "Write or Die".)

What character am I most like in X fandom meme )

An old, but familiar meme.

Choose an icon or two icons of mine. I will write a short fic featuring the character(s) in them.

Obviously, some of my icons have more than one character, so if you choose one of them, I'll choose the character that fits best for the fic.
I'm grabbing this meme from lots of people.

1) Make a list of 10 characters.
2) Assign each character a number.
3) Without telling anyone who's on the list or the character's assigned number, get questions from your readers about what they'd like to know about them.

IE: "If 3 and 4 were trapped in a cave together with only a blanket and a toothpick, what would they do?"

4) Post the answers and who was who on the list.

(I'm sure I've done this before, but I can't remember when.)

I'm actually doing this with two sets of entries. One is mostly for myself, because I want to be challenged with the characters I used in my NaNoWriMo project last year. One is for the public. Since I'm going to take a page from [ profile] germankitty's book and answer before I reveal the people, let me know if you want one or both. (That is, the fandom list and/or the novel list.) If you don't, I'll assume you want the fandom list.

(I'd mention fandoms, but mine are literally all over the place.)
I thought this one would be fun. :)

Give me (at least) two characters from different fandoms that you know I'm familiar with and I'll give you a dialogue happening between the two of them. Without justifying how the crossover would work, how their worlds clashed, or how they could even meet each other. Just a silly crossover conversation with no backstory, for fun.

(Now off to start on the [ profile] finalauraburst update)

eta: And yes, different incarnations are perfectly okay; If you wanted to, say, see me write Ryoutarou (Kamen Rider Den-o) talking to Kenzaki (Kamen Rider Blade), that works.
Name three fics you think I will never, ever, ever write. In return (and if inspired), I will attempt to write a snippet of one of them.
Summarize 10 of your fandoms in one sentence, then see who on your friends list can guess each fandom. Cross them out as they're guessed.

1. People with long metal pointy sticks fight each other to the death. - Highlander, guessed by [ profile] athersgeo and [ profile] sinanju
2. Teenagers with gifts and a prime drawback end up saving the world. - Tomorrow People, guessed by [ profile] athersgeo and [ profile] sinanju
3. Surfers, bikers, skateboarders, and geeks can all save the world together. - Power Rangers Ninja Storm, guessed by [ profile] athersgeo and [ profile] itsbuttery
4. He spends too much time in time and brings others along into adventures. - Doctor Who, guessed by [ profile] sinanju
5. He called, unknowing, to his father, and now the two of them discover the world and what it means to be human. - Starman, guessed by [ profile] sinanju
6. They said they came in peace, but a group of people are suspicious of these energy-based aliens. - Earth: Final Conflict, guessed by [ profile] kimera.
7. A secret organization battles monsters, aided coincidentally by two men, a journalist and a mystery, who have the ability to change into a huge form. - Ultraman Nexus, guessed by [ profile] sennetari
8. Poor girl in a rich school develops a relationship with the richest students. - Hana Yori Dango, guessed by [ profile] obsessivemuch
9. Sent back to the past after a criminal mastermind and others, a lone officer and his helper track the others down and return them. - Time Trax, guessed by [ profile] sinanju
10. To protect time from invaders who would destroy it, a young man with a rare ability is called upon to use some of the same invaders to save time and the world. - Kamen Rider Den-O, guessed by [ profile] itsbuttery

EDIT: Since I got a lot of replies before I had a chance to update (wow, you guys are fast), I'm going to list multiple people on successful guesses.
While I'm trying to answer my last meme, here's another:

1. Pick out a line or two from one of my stories. It must be a full line - no sentence fragments or speech tags.
2. I will respond with which story of mine I think it's from.
3. The drabble of your choice to anyone who stumps me.

(Snagged from [ profile] dragonsinger)

Oh, and archive is here.
Meme, swiped from [ profile] mariko_azariel:

Give me the name of a character and I'll tell you:

1) Why I like him/her.
2) Why I dislike him/her.
3) What plot I would like to read in a fic about him/her. The plot to a fic involving the character that I will make up on the spot.
4) What superpower he/she would have.
5) Who do I "ship" him/her with (for ship read: think that s/he will end up with, or at least would be amused by it happening)
6) WILD CARD (meaning, make up your own question)
This is a very mutated version of the "5 fics (of yours) that you love". Mainly because it's 10 fics and not in order.

The fics I chose )

01. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
02. I respond by asking you five questions of a very intimate and creepily personal nature, or actually, more likely fannish questions.
04. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
05. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

[ profile] itsbuttery gave me these questions.

Interview meme. Slight spoilers for various KR, PR, and sentai series abound )
... I just wish I remembered who I pulled this meme from.

Leave a comment on this entry telling me which character (from any fandom) I most remind you of, then repost this in your own journal.
It's time for the ever popular Userpics meme! (At least one of them, anyway)

Ask me about one of my userpics. Or, if you want, tell me one I should be using more. If you want, post this in your journal so that I can do the same.
I have the original userpics meme here (I've done one Charmed and one Kamen Rider Blade drabble). However, since I make more LJ icons than I use on my personal LJ, I'd like to extend that challenge to include the icons in my archive.

Therefore, the original challenge still stands: Choose an icon, tell me which one it is, and I'll write you a 100-word, stream of consciousness, non-beta'd drabble. If you want to make it easier for me to find, tell me which section it's in (for example, "King All The Cards in Kamen Rider Blade").
Look at my userpics/icons. Choose one of my icons. Tell me which icon you've chosen (via comment). And I'll post a 100-word unbeta'd, on the fly, stream of consciousness, impromptu drabble inspired by that icon in response.

Fic meme

Choose up to 10 of your fics. Write a question for each of them (like a question in a story guide) and see if people can answer them.
ETA: BTW, this is open-book. Looking up the answers is not only allowed but encouraged. :)
All of mine were randomly picked from my archive at Selma's Inkwell.
Questions below )
Snagged from [ profile] dragonsinger

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.
Here are my first lines for 2006, with commentary in parentheses.

January: I've gotten Inkwell 3.0 up to 100 fics. (And I'm now about to hit 2007, and I'm only up to 190. Bleh.)

February: The corner of Hunter's mouth quirked up in a small semi-grin. (Line from "Breeze Twice Blown" being quoted.)

March: Octavia E. Butler, one of the few well-known black female science fiction writers, died February 25, 2006, from injuries sustained in a fall. (And I still wish she hadn't died....)

April: This was a ficlet that [ profile] tptigger and I wrote. (Refers to "Fast Food", one of our "White" universe ficlets.)

May: I've decided to keep my personal stuff somewhere else, leaving this journal for the fandom stuff. (Yes, I have a personal journal. No, I haven't updated it lately. Bleh.)

June: I'm still here and sane, but barely. (And then I ranted about fics I still haven't finished, for the most part.)

July: I've now seen the TV-N sub of 21 and 1/3 of the raw for 22, so some minor thoughts and spoilers. (This would be Kamen Rider Kabuto. And they're still good eps.)

August: Well, have some time and are a PR fan, anyway.... (Note about the Hope for the World fanfic awards. I don't think I won anything. *Checks* Nope, I didn't. I'm still wondering how the ones that did win, won.)

September: I did get my finish-a-thon assignment today. (It was "Kuroonningen". I finished it and posted it.)

October: I've just added a few new text icons. (And I'm surprised nobody caught the "Gauntlet" reference.)

November: Well, I've managed to finish day two of nanowrimo with slightly higher than expected wordcount. (Pretty much 90% of my entries that month started with "Nano day __")

December: I've tried (I have to, since doesn't exist anymore) and all my computers, and I seem to be short a copy of "Different Assignments, Same Idea", which I promised to finish for Beth. (I found the fic. It's hiding in the as-yet-unvalidated queue on Rosegarden. And I need to go read/validate a fic there, I see.)
I guess the rule of this one is to put in a description of your x favorite couples, and see if your friends can guess them, crossing them out as they're guessed. I did 10. Not sure if anybody will get some of them, or most of them, but worth a try. Two of them are slash, the rest of them are het.

My couples:

1. He's too shy, she's too strong. - Trip/Katie. Guessed by [ profile] cmar_wingnut
2. Both like danger and excitement in their sports. Thankfully, that's their job, as well. - Blake/Tori. Guessed by [ profile] tptigger
3. He's a dunderhead, she likes him too much, no matter what worlds he pulls her into. - Quinn/Wade. Guessed by [ profile] tptigger
4. She broke up with her boyfriend. Fortunately, he was there for her.
5. She came from the future to chase her fiance's killer, he ended up falling for her. - Jen/Wes. Guessed by [ profile] cmar_wingnut
6. Her world required him to adjust his thinking and his morality; thankfully, his morality was a little bit flexible.
7. They are both weak in spirit, easily controlled and abused. At least they've got each other.
8. He didn't want to be in the battle against the monsters and just wanted another life. But his boyfriend had other plans.
9. Maybe if he stopped being such a silly fop, she'd like him?
10. He's jealous, but will he make the first move with her?

Hint: I accidentally left off a couple that would make quite a few people on my FL groan anyway.
You paid attention during 97% of high school!

85-100% You must be an autodidact, because American high schools don't get scores that high! Good show, old chap!

Do you deserve your high school diploma?
Make a Quiz

I bet that the question I missed, ironically enough, had to do with English grammar....
I nabbed this from a bunch of folks, and I can't remember who they were!

Anyway: Look at your icons, if you have less than 10, post about all ten, 11-50 post every 5th, 51-100 every 7th, 100+ every 10th.

Here's mine, and they're pretty much all Tokusatsu.

Slight bits of spoilery stuff for various Kamen Rider series )
This meme is so simple, I know I've done it before.

1. Put your player on Random
2. Choose your favorite lyrics from 25 songs. (I did 10)
3. Let people guess the song, and cross out the ones that are guessed correctly.

I have a lot of music with Japanese lyrics, but I got lucky and only one Japanese-language song came up. I've credited the site that I grabbed the lyrics from with that entry.

cut to save friends' pages )
I snagged this from [ profile] kerravonsen. The idea is to try to find a fic you've written for each letter of the alphabet. I actually was surprised to see a lack of stories for some letters, though this is based on the current version of Inkwell, so I may have missed some.

If you happen to be working on some creative writing project, fanfiction or NaNoWriMo or what have you, post exactly one sentence (or more) from each of your current work(s) in progress in your journal. It should probably be your favorite or most intriguing sentence so far, but what you choose is entirely your discretion. Mention the title (and genre) if you like, but don't mention anything else -- this is merely to whet the general appetite for your forthcoming work(s).

This is from "Unwanted Wings" (Blind Rewrite edition):

I snagged this from [ profile] mireille719, who is also participating in the finish-a-thon.

Make up a title for a story I didn't write, and I will respond with details of those non-written stories. You may, if you like, include details, such as pairings or fandom or whatnot.

Another random meme )

ETA: And if you're feeling generous and want to answer a meme, this one, this one and this one are still available.
I'm sure this isn't a new one.

Look at my icons. If there's one you want to know about, ask it here and I'll tell you about it.
1. Comment and I'll tell you what fandom I associate with you.
2. Post this in your own journal so I can see what fandom you associate with me.
3. I'll tell you what icon I see on my friends list and know it's you.
This is an interesting meme:

There's a bunch of fic-based memes around. How did you pick the title, why did you start with that first line, what happens after the story ends, etc. If you like, pick a story of mine and ask me any one of those questions, from the ones I just listed or any others you can think of.

Or the questions can be about writing in general or original stories, like the question posed by this meme

some random Q&As if you want to be inspired )
Ask me about a character in my fics that you're not really familiar with (either canon or OC) and I'll tell you about them.

Once you have, if you write fanfic, put this meme on your LJ.

Yes, it's time for Selma-to-feel-bored-again. Following in the footsteps of several people on my FL, I want to write a couple of short fics.

Therefore, if anyone is interested in having a short (under 1500) word fic written for them, I'm offering one. I've lost track of what people have requested in the past, so if you want a fic, please tell me again.

Fandoms: My major ones right now are Power Rangers (all generations except Lightspeed Rescue), Kamen Rider Blade, and Kamen Rider Phi's/Faiz/555. I could manage some of my older ones (Tomorrow People, either OS or NS, early Sliders, Forever Knight, Starman, Highlander/Highlander: The Raven, Earth: Final Conflict) with some difficulty.

Please specify the following:
1. Fandom
2. Pairing(s)
3. Title or sentence

ETA: I didn't mean to leave TP out of there. Honest....
