john_amend_all: (angels)

Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook and [personal profile] liadtbunny, a WIP meme. Though given the amount of writing I've done in the past five months, the possibility of any of these seeing the light of day seems remote:

I haven't been writing anything, and I've still got a fake TV show to come up with at some point (I've cast, um, one actress so far). So obviously it's the perfect time to snatch up a prompt meme from [personal profile] lost_spook (and then head off to tumblr to fill in the gaps).

So... Give me two characters or more (pairing or otherwise) and a prompt number and I’ll write a ficlet:

prompts follow )

Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook:

  1. Comment to this post with "I surrender!" and I'll assign you the basis of some TV show idea. (Science fiction show, medical drama, criminal procedure, etc...)
  2. Create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them.
  3. Add in any actor photos, character bios and show synopsis that you want.
  4. Post to your own journal.

Give me a character and I’ll tell you my headcanon for:

  • What they smell like:
  • How they sleep (sleeping position, schedule, etc):
  • What music they enjoy:
  • How much time they spend getting ready every morning:
  • Their favourite thing to collect:
  • Left or right-handed:
  • Religion (if any):
  • Favourite sport:
  • Favourite touristy thing to do when travelling (museums, local food, sightseeing, etc):
  • Favourite kind of weather:
  • A weird/obscure fear they have:
  • The carnival/arcade game they always win without fail:

john_amend_all: (gia)
Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook:
Comment to this post with a fic title (a word, phrase or quotation), a fandom and, if desired, a character or pairing. I'll reply with a summary of the fic I won't write for that title, in this way generating plot-bunnies, gaiety of nations and perhaps even actual fic by other people.
16th-Nov-2016 09:59 pm - Ficlet writing meme
john_amend_all: (gia)

Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook:

Take a pairing (or two or more characters), and put them in this random generator, then post your favourite resulting prompts (as many as you wish) in a comment below and I will try to oblige you by writing at least one of them.

31st-Oct-2016 07:05 pm - Trick or Treat meme
john_amend_all: (angels)
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!
18th-Sep-2016 03:36 pm - Writing meme: Answers
john_amend_all: (ulkesh)

These took some time to come up with, mostly because of trying to think of answers of more than a sentence for the trope-based questions.

17th-Aug-2016 08:05 pm - Fifteen Characters Meme
john_amend_all: (gia)
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 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.
30th-Jul-2016 09:39 pm - Domestic Pairings Meme
john_amend_all: (silverliz)
Reviving this meme, because it was quite fun four years ago:
I've got a list of 20 of my favourite pairings. All you need to do is give me a number (1-20) and a mundane household chore, like folding laundry or doing dishes, and I'll write a snippet and explain how the task would go, in-character for that pairing and universe.

(OK, to be honest, the 20 pairings in my list aren't necessarily my favourites, but the ones I think may generate workable prompts for this meme. So if you see Ten/Rose show up, don't judge me 😅.)

If you want to play and can't think of 20 favourite pairings, you can always try suggestions from random generators. Beware of brain breakage, though.

30th-Jun-2016 11:43 pm - Crossover conversations meme
john_amend_all: (ulkesh)
Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook:
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.
