I've been mostly away for the long weekend (so I owe a bunch of comments and email and general communication) but in the meantime I've managed to write something for the first time since, like, this *year*.

It's another batch of those one-sentence stories that almost certainly count as fanfic. Just one more (ten) to go!

Ten.
Twenty.
Thirty.

Forty. )

Way back when the new Legion of Super-Heroes comic was fresh and exciting, I started writing something that looked to have the heft of an actual plot to it. And then the next day, an issue came out and Jossed (Waided?) me royally.

However, I stumbled on the first bit on my forays through the wilds of my harddrive, and I think it's still pretty cool.

In related news, y'all are nuts. SOME OF YOU MORE THAN OTHERS.

I leave it as an exercise to the reader to decide which.

The first ten.
The second ten.

(The continuation of the "does this count as fan fiction" quasi-experiment. I think I've got enough thoughts now to make me go hmmmm, but that's what I said *last* time - Though I'm really just having fun, I am still interested in knowing what rings as fanfic (or not!) to people who don't live in my head.)

 
Another ten tiny stories. )

These are, technically, the continuation of this experiment, but I'm not sure there's any data left to gather. So really I'm just having fun.

Recently, [livejournal.com profile] __marcelo touched on the question of where exactly the borders of fanfic *are*.

This is an experiment with that, with me *totally cribbing* certain pieces of the Not Fanfic story he gave as an example, but not others. I'd be interested in knowing on which side of the line you think it falls.

Prompt list from [livejournal.com profile] 1fandom, which is a challenge for one line stories. (The format might limit my methodology a bit, but it's all I can manage at the moment!) I'll post ten or so mini-stories at a time. Any more and they stop being fun to read, really.

 

The stories. )

I wrote this a while ago, but I never posted it here...

Upgrade )
(One of my 2007 resolutions is to catch up, at least a little, on the masses or request fic I owe people. This isn't *technically* part of that compaign.)

[livejournal.com profile] thefourthvine wanted to know how Tim Drake and Adam Young knew each other, and I got a little bit carried away.

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] petronelle for help with cleaning duties.

 
So Dawn Goes Down )
 
You can chart probable exam periods by my LJ output, I'm beginning to suspect.

Anyway. Instead of putting up the Dear Santa letter as given by the... Dear Santa letter generator, I picked a character at completely random and wrote fic based on it instead.

 
(Q: ...So. The completely random character you picked. It wouldn't happen to be Kara, would it?
A: Why, yes, actually. However did you guess!)

 
 
I want a pony! )
Yes, my favourite is Alan Moore's. (If we're not counting my icon.) But they're quite versatile, aren't they....

Romance: "I never promised." "I believed anyway."
Porn: Sorry. There are too many cocks!
Thriller: Secrets destroyed -- shredded paper and brains.
Genre: The spaceships landed. We all ran.
Comedy: Is there really a toenail fairy?
Coming of age: I turned my parental tracer off.
Horror: They said silver would work. Bastards.

I can do fanfic as well...

Charles/Erik:* He felt safe underneath the helmet. Charles let him.
Moon/Zao:* The diamonds are sharp and cold, like your touch.

Origin stories are always necessary, right?

Clark: No one else could taste sunlight.
Bruce: They died more slowly in nightmares.
Diana: Just don't ask what Hippolyta traded.
Dick Grayson: Green. Red. Green. Red. Red. Red.
Dexter: Magnificent moon, magnified in Harry's knife


*(Actually a 9 word story. Oops.)

This format amuses me, obviously. The six word story only works because the person reading is capable of filling in all the blanks, of creating a story themselves around the mere suggestion the author provides.

Want one? Give me a character and get 6 words, give me a pairing and get between 6 and 12.
for [livejournal.com profile] hannahrorlove:

1. Superman says, "Thanks, Jimmy!" and puts one large hand on Jimmy's shoulder. "You're a real pal!"

2. Well, okay, so what *if* the alien ghost Inca genie thing turns out pretty bad in the end. For a little while Jimmy has a six foot tall babe in a bikini fetching him coffee whenever he wants, and he is The *Man*. (The very jittery Man, maybe, but still totally The Man.)

3. Clark is late, again, and finally Lois uncrosses her arms and grabs Jimmy by the collar and takes him to the senior reporters' fancy dinner instead. There are a few jokes made at his expense, sure, but Perry treats him like a son, he manages not to spill anything on his jacket, and he learns the original context behind Dik Soak's story with Green Lantern and the giant jar of marmalade.

4. Superman is falling from the sky in tatters of blue and red and bright promises and it's not like Jimmy can *do* anything except keep his finger on the shutter release and wait for the perfect shot.

After, Perry White looks at him with eyes that are red and shiny. But he says, "Good work, Olsen," in an almost steady voice and runs the photos on page one and no one ever forgets them, ever.

5. One day, Superman comes back, and Jimmy gets pictures of that, too.

 
For [livejournal.com profile] stardance.

5. In Batman: Year One, we see that Bruce developed a whistle that will call a swarm of bats to surround him, confusing and/or utterly freaking the shit out of any pursuing cops. But a giant swarm of flying rodents obscuring his vision and movements proved to be not as useful as he had hoped, and, besides, a couple of the bats got hit by stray bullets and Bruce still hasn't forgiven himself.

4. No one spoke of the Bat-Strobe-Suit again. Even Especially if it was fun at parties.

3. For a few months after becoming Robin, Dick Grayson refused to eat anything that wasn't bat-shaped. This phase has long since passed into the realm of embarrassing anecdotes, but, on the morning after Dick left for college, Alfred dug out the Bat-Waffle-Maker one last time.

2. There is a switch in the Batmobile that will convert it outwardly into a common Ford-made sedan. However, while useful for camouflage purposes, this would require making it look less cool.

1. This one: )
