Showers!

Even my default icon is a shower. Wow.

Anyway, I took a round of gen shower prompts on tumblr, and I have a couple results that aren't homestuck related!

DS9: Kira and Sisko for hannahCollapse )

Girl Genius: Gil and TarvekCollapse )

....And actually, since I am at it, here are some 3 sentence(ish) breakups:

Girl Genius: Axel Higgs/ZeethaCollapse )

Comics: Clark/Diana for philippos42Collapse )

Also. *Would* anyone be interested in me collecting homestuck prompt meme ficlets over here? I have done a large amount of them, but I assume everyone who has signed up for this journal back when it was more active is... not really.

I am really excited.

My (relevant) life goal was "mediocre at ukulele".

I bought a ukulele one week ago exactly, and at this rate I'm going to hit "mediocre" within a month. I already know like 10 chords. I just have to work on my transitions and the B flat chord and the more interesting strumming patterns.

I've started reading the Vorkosigan saga, although *mostly* the experience so far has been me whining to people on tumblr about it.

I liked the last part of Barrayar, though, so! Steady on.

FREE BOOK

I *keep* forgetting to post this here, which is embarrassing because this is where any interested parties would be following me (if they still are? hi?) but I am giving away a book!

It's a signed, illustrated copy of Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

Pictures and instructions at this post, and please note it is closing at the end of October. However, if you want to try, your odds of winning aren't bad at all! (See again: dash full of confused Homestuck fans.)

posted here because icon

Gravity is a really excellent movie in my favourite genre (space), and you should go see it.

Overheard initial conversation coming out of the theatre was stuff like "When I stood up, my legs were shaking, like I was in zero G haha" and "I'm dizzy; I wasn't breathing for half the movie." and "I had to go to the bathroom since it started."

These are actual quotes, as nearly as I can transcribe them, which I think says a lot about audience immersion in the movie.

brainstorm > brain cloud: my hypothesis

I've been having the sort of creative crisis for the past few weeks where "writing" becomes a word that means "the process of tabbing between approximately 4 google docs, muttering Why Do I Suck So Hard At Everything I Attempt Forever as an incessant mantra, daily, for hours at a time".

And as much as I feel a twinge of guilt for ignoring my Dreamwidth but for silly request memes, WHO IS IN THE MOOD FOR A SILLY REQUEST MEME?

Specifically this one, because I'm still fond of the results:

Give me a pairing (or a 3+some) and I will give you a brief summary of their totally overwrought love story! It will be like a Harlequin romance, except I have very little idea of how Harlequin romances actually work, so probably it won't be like that at all.

Fandoms are anything I'm familiar with, and if I'm left staring blankly I'll ask for a new prompt. (Strong contenders include Homestuck, Spin State & sequels, subsections of the DCU, Good Omens, incomplete swaths of Trekverse... but this is not an exhaustive list. Eg, I listened to Welcome To Night Vale yesterday, and completely forgot until this sentence.)

[profile] count_fenring

Kara Zor-El, Amanda Waller, and Agatha Heterodyne are the among the last survivors of a nuclear war. How do they cope with their new life as scavengers amongst the wreckage of modernity? Do they find love for each other amongst the ruins, or do they complete the grim work of human self-annihilation that began when the bombs fell?Collapse )

 

[personal profile] bluepard

What do The Old Spice Man, Hyacinthe Cohen, and Rose Lalonde wear to a Halloween party? And if they refuse to pick their own outfits, what will Benjamin Sisko make them wear?Collapse )

if John Egbert and Abed Nadir met years ago and had a one-night stand resulting in a baby, of Rose Lalonde, Troy Barnes, and Karkat Vantas, which would it be, and was John Egbert keeping the baby from Abed Nadir or was Abed Nadir keeping the baby from John Egbert, and what will Hy Cohen, John Egbert's long-time lover, think of all this?Collapse )

 
...to be continued.

the shippiest gen post I've made since the shower game

And then I tried to do a prompt meme on tumblr, where they always look kind of floppy and out of their natural place...

for [personal profile] angel_gidget:BRAINIAC 5: 5 lovesCollapse )

for [tumblr.com profile] inkstrangle: JOHN EGBERT: 5 loves, 4 lies, 2 shoesCollapse )

(The shoes aren't part of the meme, they were just what I made myself for my birthday.)

(They also glow in the dark, just to be sure you *know* I am a properly mature grown-up.)

[personal profile] hannah

In addition to their current identities, The Old Spice Man and Rose Lalonde are both researchers in the field of deception analysis. Are they friendly colleagues and co-authors, or do they hate each other's guts?Collapse )

A dating website attempts to find a romantic match for a spankbot. Out of all the other fourteen participants, who would be the most suitable? The least?Collapse )

Benjamin Sisko, Abed Nadir, and Cassandra Cain go out for drinks. What kind of drinks are served, and where do all three find themselves in the morning?Collapse )

Is Agatha Heterodyne religious?Collapse )

Kara Zor-El ordered a hamburger without any onions, yet when they received said hamburger it has onions anyway. How do they respond?Collapse )

For reasons too complicated to go into right now, Cristina Yang and Karkat Vantas have to get married. What do they wear, and what kind of ceremony do they have?Collapse )

Bounty hunters are sent to hunt down Amanda Waller and bring them to justice. Do the hunters succeed?Collapse )

 

[personal profile] philippos42

Mxyzptlk turns a spankbot into a ceiling fan. Do Karkat Vantas and Alice Morgan hurry to change the spankbot back, or try and make that transformation permanent after Mxy goes home?Collapse )

Who looks better in a suit, Kara Zor-El or Abed Nadir?Collapse )

If it became the style to stick your fringe/bangs up like Cameron Diaz in There's Something about Mary, would Hyacinthe Cohen adopt it or decide not to follow the trend? How about Benjamin Sisko? Agatha Heterodyne?Collapse )

Troy Barnes and Rose Lalonde get married! But not to each other! To whom?Collapse )

 
[personal profile] gogollescent

The Old Spice Man is a dragon and telepathically bonded to Amanda Waller. What's the era? Are they cruising through the Napoleonic Wars or running a con in the 21st century? Or are they actually on Pern?Collapse )

Benjamin Sisko and Hyacinthe Cohen encounter an unchaperoned child version of Cristina Yang. Do they sell it into slavery, keep it and raise it, or try to frame one another for its kidnapping?Collapse )

Kara Zor-El and John Egbert are married when the zombie apocalypse arrives, and John Egbert is infected with totally unrelated parasitic worms. TELL ME ABOUT IT.Collapse )

Cristina Yang is an undercover policeman trying to ingratiate themselves with the mob; Alice Morgan is a weary, jaded piece of arm candy for one of the mafia boss' lieutenants, and developing a late-life urge for revenge. Do they strike a deal, start a pale/black flip, or just have moments of frozen empathy in crowded nightclubs?Collapse )

IS Karkat Vantas SECRETLY EVIL?Collapse )

 

to be continued....

All right!

I'm giving myself amnesty on the last round and starting this anew!

Since it's been a while, the rules:

1) Make a list of fifteen characters, and keep them to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask everyone to make up questions in the comments.

For example: "One forces Two and Seven to get married. Is it a happy marriage?"
"Five, Six and Twelve form a band! What do they call themselves? Are they any good?"
"Why *are* all the other numbers afraid of Seven?"
