First sentence of each post from each month. I'm only going with public posts for this.

Jan: It's 2008.
Feb: So I went to Sheetz to grab me some breakfast this morning, and came out with a knock off.
March: The earliest Discworld novels were based off of Prattchet's RPG experiences.
April: The Hypothetical AU Meme: Take any one of the fandoms you know I write in, and give me a type of AU (space opera AU, pirate AU, superhero AU, Ancient Rome, etc).*
May: "Not including the animals PETA spayed and neutered, the group had possession of 1,997 dogs, cats, and other “companion animals” in 2007.
June: No public posts were made this month! D:
July: The (mostly) spoilerless verict: Pretty good.
Aug: ... but for some strange reason, I find this page to be one of the creepier comic book pages I've seen in awhile.
Sept: With honorable mention to Superman Beyond 3-D, which is getting delayed for the same reason as Last Will and Testament.
Oct: Clearly, there is something villainous about combining the colors of green and purple, and no good can come of it.
Nov: After having irritated myself all to heck by reading Rodimus Prime's wiki entry, I am badly in need of recommendations for good Rodimus Prime fic, possibly AU or post-series fic or something, where in he gains/regains command and stays in charge.**
Dec: Rather than starting out on the Enterprise or with the Enterprise crew, like most episodes, The Devil in the Dark starts with a team of unfamiliar miners during a watch change-over.

* Also, I suck, because I never responded to ANY of these.
** Never did get my fic-rec. :( I did, however, get a comic drawn in MS Paint by [ profile] invisiblemoose

The Hypothetical AU Meme: Take any one of the fandoms you know I write in, and give me a type of AU (space opera AU, pirate AU, superhero AU, Ancient Rome, etc).
I will then explain what story from your chosen fandom I would write for your chosen type of AU.

Not very good. I've let these go too long, and now I've lost the mood.

Horrible, horrible, cheap cop-out, I know. Sorry, DE, but I just couldn't get inspired. So instead I'm only barely above the 100 word limit these things have.

Drinking Fleetwind with Stunticons claimed by [ profile] dragoness_e

The pale yellow Seeker was absolutely terrified, though he hid it so well that no one around him knew it.

It was a tough bar in a remote part of Cybertron, the sort of place that those who knew Fleetwind would never expect to find him. Which was, of course, exactly why he went there when he needed to not be found. Granted, it was the sort of place where they would tear you up and dine on your fluids if you showed even the slightest hint of fear, but Fleetwind, for all that he was a coward, was a very practiced coward. If not showing his fear was what got him through alive, he could handle that.

So if there are short periods of time when Fleetwind didn't want to be found, periods not worth a repaint, he went to that rough bar, and usually it worked out just fine.

This time, however, the Stunticons were there.

This one was hard, because I had to figure out what Fleetwind was greedy for!

Greedy Fleetwind. )

I like to play games with words. But sometimes words are poor sports. :(

All Seeker names, with the exception of Fleetwind's, created using Koi's Random Seeker Name Generator. And seriously, Fleetwind's name might as well have been created that way... >_>

Gen, and short enough that I'm not cutting. 233 words.

On Vacation Fleetwind requested by [ profile] raisedbymoogles

Fleetwind darted and dashed about the ragged metal chasm, battling air currents and dancing to the tune of the wind which howled against the razors' edges. The Seeker tilted and twisted, ran first towards danger, then fled it, before he finally climbed up and out of the rift, where the breezes were calmer. With little effort, he drifted towards a nearby overlook, transformed, and gently touched down.

The pale robot surveyed the run and smiled. Fleetwind was loathe to leave his damaged and desolate paradise, but duty called, or would after he had called in a favor.

Three weeks prior, Fleetwind's unit had been sent out on a suicide mission. It happened from time to time. His sort was very expendable. During the resultant battle, one pastel yellow Seeker was damaged by enemy fire, crashed, went missing and was now presumed dead. At least, it looked like he was hit; there was a shot in his direction, and there was smoke, and he crashed. At least, it looked like he had crashed; everyone had been too busy trying to avoid dying (and usually failing) to really watch that closely.

The vacation had been pleasant enough, but if he waited much longer, even cranial damage and memory malfunction would not be sufficient to excuse his absence. The Seeker sighed a bit wistfully, then leapt into the air and transformed once more. It was time to go home.

Okay. My first warning is that I am both drunk and high on chocolate. I've had two bottles of wine over the last few hours, and am still so far out of it that when I started the previous sentence, my first instinct was to spell "My" as "Mi." So what follows is, in all likiehood, complete and utter crap.

Apparently it takes a bottle of wine and a bar of speciality chocolate to get slash out of me. Sadly, at two bottles of wine, I get tired and cut off my fic-bits or mini-fics or claims or whatever early. So anyways... yeah, I gave out early. Feel free to imagine a lot of wing-stroking and hand-rubbing as follow-up. I will. I'm just not in a mood to type it out.

If anything underneath the cut is even vaugely coherent, it should be counted as a minor miracle. It should also be counted as vaugue sequel to a ficbit Luna has already posted.

These only need to be a hundred words, right? I'm over 300, so I should still be good, right? )

The title of this post should be a rather strong clue as to who I'm going with for the 28 fics meme. Fleetwind and Kup were actually tied for first, but rather than going into a third round of polling, (thus putting claims and fics off a little longer) I just went with the guy who's easier for me to write, since this is my first attempt at something like this.

For those curious (but who don't feel like scrolling down the page to see the other results), Captain Hook and Sharpshooter tied for second (making Captain Hook the highest ranking non-Transformer on the poll), and WoG Starscream (my vote, BTW) tied with Vimes. Two Face, Queen Adder, and WoG Fleeting got no votes.

Anyways... 28 Fleetwinds. Go ahead and post claims. Feel free to post more than one. I reserve the right to write the ones that no one claims, anyway, but I'll try to concentrate on the ones that get claimed first. I also reserve the right to twist the meanings of any descriptors in whatever direction I can make them go (and do recall what I did when someone asked me for "Neverland gone soft and sweet").

Edit: Do not request Stunticons. I will not write them. DE's request for Drinking Fleetwind with Stunticons is exempted because it was made before I came to this decision (although even I admit I did a damn lame cop-out on that one), but that's it.

It's about time I revisited this. I figure I have about as many votes as I'll get.

I included the winner in each category, regardless of number of votes. If there were any multi-way ties, they all made it. No "other" category made it, because you folks have a habit of voting "other" and then not specifying anything. I suppose you guys expect me to write about some OC Transformer named "Other," but it ain't happening. Of course, I reserve the right to throw out results and go with whomever I please, anyway. ;)

Some amusing observations on the last round of voting:
* In the Peter Pan category, Random Nameless Mermaid got almost 30% of the vote. Peter Pan, however, received none. Also: Knave, do you seriously know who Crooked Tail is? I am impressed, man!
* In the Discworld question, Mrs. Cake received a vote, but neither Carrot nor Vetinari did.
* In the Transformers question, every one of my OCs received at least one vote. Not one of the Constructicons received votes.
* There were only two Autobots on the list, and they both made it to this round of voting.

So anyway, here we go. Next round.

Now, let's say that, theoretically speaking, I started considering tormenting myself with one of those "28 fic memes." Only let us just assume, for the sake of discussion, that I had a huge list of characters that I might be interested in making a stab at, only I couldn't make up my mind. Let us also assume that the list is firking huge, and I'd really only like to try one just now (if any at all).

Polls upon polls upon polls, my friends. :) Answer pick one for each category, and I'll pit the winners against each other in a future poll for the right of being made into a 28 fic meme! Unless, of course, I decide that I'd really rather do a different one, after all. And I put the "other" options all in their own category because I'm weird like that. Specify which particular "other" you want, and if you have no "other" preference, just... don't answer that question!

This is no guarantee of anything, not even that I'll start one of these memes, and certainly not that I'll go with the eventual winner, no matter how badly you all want to see "28 That Really Loud Woman Who Co-Owns Yesterday's Gift." But still, I would appreciate input and suggests as I try to cull this list down a bit. I also won't go too fast on these... I get burnt out easily, so I plan to pace myself.

(If anyone wants to complain that I left out Ogra, just fill him in under "Other other.")

Anyway, thanks in advance for the clickety-clickety!

[Poll #978100]
slyjinks: (J. Hook: MUAHAHAHAHA!)
Argh! So I issued that challenge meme last night, and I actually posted my first response, and here I thought I was all writing awesome Captain Hook and even including a cool quote from the book and stuff, and then I totally f-ed up the quote! Argh!

Luckily, apparently everyone else was as tired as I was, because no one caught it. :D

But seriously... "Young and impetuous youth"? That's not only not the quote, it's retarded redundant! I must have been tired.

The correct line is, of course, "Proud and insolent youth, prepare to meet thy doom." Yaaar!
