This is a summary that isn't (yet) in the generator:
At eighteen, Macy Ward had turned to Fisher Yates for a night of comfort before he left for the military. Now he’s back in town and unaware that Macy’s troubled son is the result of that unforgettable night – until the boy mysteriously disappears…

What caught my eye about it? Well, Fisher-Yates is a well-known algorithm to shuffle a list. I use it in a lot of my random generators (though, as it happens, not the Unconventional Courtship generator). I wonder if it's a deliberate reference to the algorithm?

Oh, and while I'm here... Get your brain bleach ready )

john_amend_all: (nineemma)
This is the last thing I should be doing, but (memed from [personal profile] lost_spook):
Give me a pairing and pick a prompt from this list, and I'll write a drabble/ficlet based on that combination.
  1. roaming the forest
  2. pretending to be married
  3. lowered lashes
  4. a lost childhood memory - Jamie / Victoria, [ profile] clocketpatch
  5. middle of the night in a castle - Five / Tegan, [personal profile] lost_spook
  6. tell me a fable
  7. a drop of lilac
  8. the dark things you fear
  9. entwined at dusk
  10. underwater
  11. a long time ago
  12. blackest night
  13. wraith
  14. a cruel illusion

While I'm here, my 15-characters meme doesn't yet have any prompts for characters 10, 12 or 14. <looks hopeful />

It must be that time of year again. Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook:
  1. Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.
  2. Ask your f-list / circle to post questions in the comments. For example: "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?", "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?", "Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?"
  3. After your f-list has stopped asking questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.
7th-Feb-2015 10:21 pm - Writing Questions Meme
john_amend_all: (gia)
Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook:

Ask me a question about one of my fics. It can be absolutely anything in any project and I will answer it the best I can — even on current progress/plans.

If you'd prefer, you can also ask about my writing for a particular fandom, my writing as a whole, etc.

But then I memed this from [personal profile] aralias.
Give me one of my 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.

Since I know some of my flist enjoy zombie apocalypses, I was amused to see that there is such a thing as a Mills and Boon zombie apocalypse.

You can even read it online. Though given the only review ("this was a cheesy story.... can't she do better") you might decide your time was better spent elsewhere.

By now it's in the generator, of course.

I'll also share some of the prompts I got while testing. Romance! Drama! Dashing heroes! )

20th-Jan-2015 09:09 pm - Five OTPs meme
john_amend_all: (memepolice)

Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook and [ profile] luckweaver:

Choose 5 OTP’s without looking at the questions behind the cut first, then tag friends to do the same.

According to AO3's distinctly unreliable tag count, I have written precisely five pairings more than once (all in or partly in the Doctor Who fandom), so let's go with them:

  1. Sam / Jamie
  2. Liz / Silver (Sapphire and Steel crossover)
  3. Ace / Shou Yuing
  4. Vicki / Steven
  5. Zoë / Isobel

I was rather busy at the weekend and missed [community profile] snowflake_challenge days 10 and 11. I'll have to come back to them at some point. For now, though, number 12 is delightfully apposite.

Day 12

In your own space, talk about what you bring to fandom. It can be something tangible, or not. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I think that my contributions can be mainly summed up in two links: fanfic and random prompt generators. OK, there's a bit more than that; I sometimes annoy people with nitpicky forum posts, or muck about with doll generators or image macros, but they're very much a minor element.

What makes this question so appropriate for today is that I've just uploaded quite a significant update to the Unconventional Courtship Random Generator. New features include:

Day 9

In your own space, talk about what surprises you about fandom. It could be a pairing or fandom you never thought you'd like. A fanwork type you never knew existed. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Surprise! )

Now that the [community profile] fandom_stocking reveal has taken place, I thought I'd list the various ficlets I wrote for it:

Oh, and for what it's worth, today's snowflake challenge was:

Day 8

In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. Surf the comments and find people to give love to.

I have to say that the image which immediately sprung to my mind on reading that was of Stanley Moon belting out 'Love me!' in the original Bedazzled. And a fat lot of good it did him :-)

Day 7

In your own space, share your love for a trope, cliché, kink, motif, or theme. (More than one is okay, too.) Tell us about it, tell us why you love it, give us some examples and recs. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Tropes, cliches, motifs, themes )
