The current challenge at [livejournal.com profile] snape100 is a HOOT - you plug "Severus Snape" into the Random Fact Generator (clearly based on the Chuck Norris Facts list) and write a drabble about what you get. Here's mine, posted to both the LJ and IJ versions of the comm earlier.

The Domestic Desperado

Challenge: Random Facts About Severus Snape
Words: 100
Pairing: Snape/Luna
Rating: PG-13, I think.

DH spoilerss, preciousss. Prompt and drabble both here )

Damn, I need more writing mojo. I've been so tired lately. Chronic anxiety will do that.

Once again, I'm vulgarweed at GreatestJournal and now, InsaneJournal too. Friend at will. There's also a mirror of switchythings at GJ, and soon there will be of go_exchange as well.

Still been a craptastic week, but I still managed to get a few straggling birthday drabbles written. More forthcoming!

For [livejournal.com profile] maelipstick: HP - Snape/Lupin, a skin-care product with mysterious ingredients (Rather DH-compliant, if irreverent, so SPOILERZ. Also risque.)

For [livejournal.com profile] dreya_uberwald: GO - something with Hastur and Ligur (tasteless reference to recent real-world events my own responsibility)

For [livejournal.com profile] waxbean: HP - Hermione/Snape - a glimpse of a continuation from the "Ravenous" universe.

Lessons learned from rock festivals? I don't care how hot it is, it's still physically impossible for me to stay grumpy while Sonic Youth is playing. Even if it's not one of their best nights.

Also: strapless bras are great in theory, but there must be some art to wearing them that I have never mastered, because I've never found one that doesn't migrate towards my waist, dragging my boobs down with it and making them look saggy when they aren't, and isn't that the very opposite of what a bra is supposed to do?

Appropos of nothing, from "Old Possum's Book of IMpractical Cats": I'm in love with these guys. Little cuddly kits are great but I want a Viking lynx!

I've written three more birthday drabbles, all of a crossovery flavo[u]r.

For [livejournal.com profile] vivien529: A GO/HP drabble (Minerva thinks that angel's got a little Slytherin in him!)

For [livejournal.com profile] signifier (who I get to see in August!): J.K. Rowling via J.L. Borges - Snape and the Aleph (also owes a conceptual debt to "The Three Versions of Judas")

For [livejournal.com profile] blueeyedtigress (who I get to see tomorrow!): GO/LOTR - Aziraphale and Crowley having a cuppa with Frodo

Productive? I think so.

Well, for a certain value of "honor"...also inspired by a rant at [livejournal.com profile] fanficrants about how stupid it is to send the Harry Potter cast to a Muggle horse race in Kentucky. I agree. My alternative.

Not posted to [livejournal.com profile] snape100; doesn't fit the current challenge. Death Eaters behaving badly!

Breeding Counts

Words: 100
Rating: PG
Characters: Lucius, Blaise, Snape
Summary: In which Lucius demonstrates why he was never a contender for a teaching position.

See the inferior line of the tendon, there... )

So how'd it go for you? Your horse win?

posted to [livejournal.com profile] go100 today. For their "Phobia" challenge. There are actually two phobias in this drabble, only one was required. I'm an overachiever! (I have both of them, a little)

Title: Immersion Therapy
Fandom: Good Omens
Words: 100
Rating: PG
Challenge: Phobia
characters: Crowley and Aziraphale

(Only the down ones affected him this way.) )

These two were done back in August when [livejournal.com profile] bethbethbeth hosted a two-minute-fic challenge: two minutes from the time you see the prompts, which were the titles of books grabbed at random from her shelves. I linked to them here but never actually posted them. Call it archiving.

Fear of Flying
Fandom: Good Omens
Words: 137
Rating: PG for a little gore.

I had nothing to do with it! )

Remembrance of Things Past
Fandom: Harry Potter
Words: 175
Rating: PG for some very creepy and unpleasant slashy suggestion.

Knowledge bred in the bone. )

I'm pretty overwhelmed by the response "Breathless Mouths May Summon" has gotten; only a few people know this, but as of last week I was all a-wibble with anxiety about it not being good enough. (I only do this with things that really, really matter to me)...especially with a collaborator involved; being worthy of her work is a new level of responsibility. We seem to have made a lot of people happy.

If you're wondering why it was posted only to [livejournal.com profile] lower_tadfield and not here, it's because the person who physically does the posting (me, in this case) gets all the email notifications, and q_w shouldn't have to keep checking both here AND there to see what folks were saying. Best to keep it all centralized.

Now, just because that story took up my whole psyche, it doesn't mean that's all I've been doing.

Remember that crackfic meme that was going around a couple weeks ago, where you take characters whose pictures appear in your icons and alphabetize them to generate pairings? I didn't do it for my own icons, but I did leave a couple drive-by crackfics in other people's comments.

For [livejournal.com profile] violet_quill I actually sort of used TWO of her pairings. The first is a het pairing, of a Real Person and a Toon. The second is....well, I'm just glad I don't actually believe in Hell.

PG, I think. Be warned - I did not spend more than half an hour on either of these.

She was a tall dame. I am not a tall man. )

The second was for [livejournal.com profile] xylodemon, who wound up with Crowley/Dementor. Well, this is more a story about Crowley and a Dementor. Just a little bit of virgule, ew. This one I think owes a spiritual debt to [livejournal.com profile] hjbender's hilarious "Revenge of the Houseplants" and I know it owes a very concrete material one to [livejournal.com profile] mamushi's genius illustrated treatise on Dementor reproduction, from which I used a premise. Also PG-ish.

He couldn't even say why. He just didn't like it. )

We all are She's still waiting for that Eminem/Gandalf, by the way.

[livejournal.com profile] bethbethbeth hosts Two-Minute Warning: a multi-fandom fic challenge!

There are prompts in the post (titles from books grabbed off her shelf at random), and you write a little fic in two minutes. Any fandom, any characters, just that you have TWO MINUTES and two minutes only from the time you see the prompts. So if you're ready to roll up your sleeves and rock the keyboard....Most invigorating for those of us who tend to dither.

OK, I'm a glutton for it; I did two. A Good Omens one here, and a Harry Potter one here. Both work safe--only warnings: attempts at grim humor and creepiness.

(That's two minutes each, not for both.)

Go play and let me know if you wrote something!
