I've only completed 6 new fics this year, but since everyone else seems to have done this already:Fic Writing Meme )

I'm afraid I've been horribly neglectful of LJ lately, but the play I'm stage managing opens next week, & there's been lots of work, lots of drama (and I don't just mean in the play itself!) and lots of stress. I really haven't had time for much else, and it'll be even worse when tech week starts on Sunday. 9_9

So I'll try to distract myself from all the worry for a moment with this cool meme, taken from the lovely [ profile] lost_spook:

1: Pick five fandoms. List them in alphabetical order.

2: Visit this site to find your first RANDOM POEM OF POWER. Write down the 5th line (yes, even if it's an E.E. Cummings poem and you wind up with an apostrophe). Repeat five times and - you guessed it - list 'em in alphabetical order! (No cheating, mind! This is a challenge and it's always been about creativity.)

3: I think you can see where this is going. Write a very quick 50-word half-drabble for each fandom (try to do it all in one sitting - make your brain explode!), using the line from the poem as a prompt. You don't have to include it in the half-drabble - it's just inspiration.

4: Bravo! Have a cookie.

Drabbles for Anne of Green Gables, Doctor Who, Gargoyles, Lord Peter Wimsey, and ReBoot under the cut )

That was quite fun! Some of those prompts were frighteningly appropriate for the fandom they matched up with, I must say! And these are actually my first attempts at writing fic for a fandom other than Doctor Who in over a decade, so yay! Trying new things again! (Though I'm not 100% certain the Gargoyles one wasn't actually half-remembered dialogue from the actual show, lol. But the one good point of obscure fandoms is that no one will call you out for it!) ;D

Title: The Thought That Counts
Rating: G
Word Count: 1700
Prompt: [ profile] dw_allsorts 6 prompt table: fanfic genres: fluff
Characters/pairings: Ian Chesterton/Barbara Wright
Notes/warnings: I wrote this in haste the day before Christmas and re-worked it several times since then. I still don't know if it works, but if it seems okay, then I'll consider it a victory!
Summary: Mr. Chesterton has been friends with fellow teacher Miss Wright for a while, and now he's come up with the perfect Christmas gift for her, but things don't go quite as planned... (this is unabashed Christmas fluff. Better late than never!)

The Thought That Counts )
newmoonstar: (Doctor Who Barbara)

Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: One, Ian, Barbara, Vicki
Rating: G
Word Count: 3350 (approximately, I did some last minute editing...)
Prompt: [ profile] dw_allsorts 6 Prompt Table - Fanfic Genres - 03. Crack
Author's Note: This is my first piece of Who-fic ever, and it's not been beta'd, so please take that into consideration when you read! And sorry for the uncreative title, but I had to call it something other than it's working title, which was 'Cracky Roman Villa Shenanigans'. LOL
Summary: The Tardis team explores an abandoned villa in ancient Rome, and Ian and Barbara discover the wine cellar. Crackiness ensues.
