Memed from [personal profile] romanajo123:
Pick a trope from this list and provide a fandom/pairing/moresome 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). List below the cut )

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:

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.

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.

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.

  15. How do you begin a story—with the plot, or the characters?
  16. Are you what George R. R. Martin would call an "architect" or a "gardener"? (How much do you plan in advance, versus letting the story unfold as you go?)
  17. Do you have any discarded scenes/storylines/projects?
  18. Are there any writers (fanfic or otherwise) you consider an influence?
  19. Any fandom tropes you can't resist?
  20. Any fandom tropes you can't stand?

2nd-Aug-2016 08:12 pm - Statistical oddity
john_amend_all: (samnjamie)
Number of fics in the Unconventional Courtship collection: 100
Number tagged as het: 43
Number of those written by me: 3

Number tagged as femslash: 9
Number of those written by me: 3

Number tagged as gen: 5
Number of those written by me: 3

Obviously it takes a certain mindset to take a romance-novel prompt and write it as gen, but I'm still surprised that over half of it is down to me.

Also: if the fest is run again I somehow don't think I'll end up writing three slash pairings, even if it would make the numbers even tidier.

This meme is all over my flist, but I yoinked it in this form from [ profile] pedanther. Questions and answers )

26th-May-2016 10:24 pm - Pairing-and-prompt meme II
john_amend_all: (memepolice)
Like [personal profile] lost_spook, I shouldn't be getting distracted — in my case, it's my UC fic that I need to do something about, given the rapidly approaching posting date. But anyway...

Comment with a number, and a pairing/two or more characters, and I'll try to write you a ficlet or drabble.

I had a late request on Teaspoon from ShyWhovian for a Six and Peri set.
