Meme again! Forgot where I found it.

1. Put your iPod or mp3 on shuffle.
2. Write down and post the first 10 songs you get, and also the opening line to each song.
3. Name what character each song or opening line reminds you of.
[This might be tough!]
4. Finally, write at least 2 brief ficlets inspired by some of these songs or opening lines.
[Okay, I actually added this last one because I want an excuse to write unpretentiously and semi-spontaneously. Though, um, I don't think I will write them all in one sitting!]

Okay, that's it for the answers - the ficlets (which took two/three days to write despite being quite simple - fast, I am still not! - are posted as comments below. Spoilers for Nana and Revolutionary Girl Utena.
printfogey: (robin intro)
Reposting a ficlet previously posted to the challenge comm [profile] onepiece_300 on Livejournal (which I can heartily recommend - as far as I know no comm like that exists on Dreamwidth, though I could be wrong). This one is all gen. I've expanded on it somewhat.

Title: Soot
Word Count: 433
Prompt: Fire
Characters: Dadan, Makino
Spoilers/setting: Set after the first 10 or so pages of chapter 589

So! I got tagged - or rather, asked to be tagged - by [ profile] scribe_protra a week or so back (*checks* uh, actually it was New Year's Eve - I'm even slower than I thought!) for a writing meme! This one is connected to user pics.

This is how the meme goes officially, though as you see below I didn't follow all of it:

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and write a drabble about (each of) the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Beside the icon glee, I think - though I could have this all wrong - that the point is to write something brief and fast without taking it too seriously. Unfortunately, I normally fail at brevity and quickness, so that failed, even though I cheated and asked [ profile] scribe_protra to only pick four of my icons rather than six. And I wound up way over 100-word length for all of them - though I did hold on to the "not taking it too seriously" part. Anyway, it was still fun to do, and I'd love to pass it on in case anyone's interested.

If you do want to do this, please ask how many icons I should pick - since I only had four, I can hardly demand anyone else must write six!

Concrit is welcome as always - this is just for fun, but it's always good to get tips on wording, correction on typoes etc!

here we go )
