all the feels contained here could be summed up in the following gif )

ANYWAY so to do things, here are some requests for prompts, because I'm even too lazy to write these days. (I hate rainy Mondays.) Expect drabble-y things in response.

1. Give me a character or pairing or something and a "five times" prompt.


2. Comment, and I'll do an insta-drabble ficlet thing, prompted from whatever icon you use.

4. Give me:

1. A line from a song or a poem.
2. The title of a book.
3. A color.
4. An emotion.
[5. A fandom, if you like.]

/shamelessly steals [livejournal.com profile] bluestalking's subject line

I'm doing Audrey's and Beth's, so I'll post my questions at the end of the Beth post, which won't be until next time. But man I haven't done something non-work-or-relationship related in FOREVER, so, here you go!

(I miss reading and fandom and writing and my boyfriend and ONE MORE WEEK oh God I have to finish writing the midterm.)


OKAY OKAY behind this cut (for those with slow internets) is the song "The Ballad of Love and Hate" by The Avett Brothers, whose voices are so so soothing and who do lovely things with guitars. Only one of them sings this song, but I just...love it.
Love writes a letter and sends it to Hate. )

[livejournal.com profile] crisium_rising gave me a meme! So, since Quark is sleeping in her room and thus cutting me off from my DA2 fix (and my screenshots, thus making it difficult for me to show you the hot mess that is Thistle Hawke), I am going to do it!

(Also I should talk about DA2. I kind of love it. On the other hand, I have two full pages of notes about Thistle, because I cannot nail down her character. Sarcastic with the people she likes! Aggressive with everyone else! Supremely confident in her magic! Cocky! Rich! Beautiful! Might be falling in love with Anders, definitely wants to rip Isabela's pants off*! But what is the underlying motivation? *weeps*)

(*Note: Isabela does not actually wear pants.)

Anyway, the meme.

1. Reply to this post with "UNICORNS", and I will pick five of your icons.

2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about 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

This is an updated version of one of the first icons [livejournal.com profile] loquaciousquark ever made! From the School Time Shipping (STS)(so close to STDS) (thanks Mike and Bryan) episode, where Katara says smell ya later to Jet and Haru and Zuko and goes off with...the Blue Spirit. Who is actually Zuko. But Zuko's busy going AAAAAAAAAAAAARGH and I just love his expression and the way his jaw is just hitting the ground with sheer DO NOT WANT.

Spoilers follow, but nothing that would ruin the books. Mostly it is cut because MY SHIPS, I HAVE FEELINGS ABOUT THEM. FEELINGS.

er, anyway, that's my Artemis Fowl icon. /cough

I have a lot of Issues with Enchanted, but omg Amy Adams is adorable, and also this icon basically encapsulates my reaction to a lot of things. In a step-by-step sort of way. SQUEE.

EVERYONE ALWAYS ASKS ABOUT THIS ICON oh man I haven't used it in ages but okay okay so anything [livejournal.com profile] aspectabund does involving the Queen's Thief books is just about guaranteed to make me a) laugh b) cry c) explode and this post is no different. I...can't really explain if you haven't read the books. But. There you go. Gen's having a bad day.

THIS IS THE ONLY ICON I HAVE EVER MADE and I made it because I desperately needed a Dragon Age icon. This is the expression Morrigan makes when you tell her that she is going to get to fight Loghain at the Landsmeet. She does a dance. It is so sarcastic and oh joy and I laughed so hard the first time I did it. And Morrigan is, I believe, my absolute favorite character from DAO. I could write about her ALL THE TIME. She's just so complex and vulnerable and tough and her friendship storyline with f!Warden is so AWESOME and EPIC and satisfying that when she leaves at the end you're actually sad...

...unless you're my boyfriend, who was all "I hate Morrigan" and "Alistair sucks."* On the other hand, he apparently just took his character into the Deep Roads by himself. Just for the sake of being a dwarf, walking around the Deep Roads. I. Don't always understand him.

*well if you would not leave him in the armor he was wearing at the start of the game...

anyway as far as RL goes WP and I are still the best thing since indoor plumbing (what? I rank that above sliced bread any day) and Quark and I have seen each others' optic nerves so we are ~*~closer than ever~*~ and she really needs to get her butt out of bed so I can PLAY THE GAME ALREADY. UGH.

I should probably reply to this on other people's journals. I will do that shortly.

Okay y'all for those of you who are interested I swear I am working on a post about last week. Really. It's coming. I just--have to work out how to word things. And try to determine how much kissing to talk about. (I love kissing. It is AWESOME. And now I miss it muchly.) (Here: tell me what y'all want to hear about, that will help.)

In the meantime, two things! One is a meme from [livejournal.com profile] redbrunja from a couple weeks back, in which I am supposed to post about five things and if you comment with a bang bang or something I'll ask you about five things and anyway, her five things for me were

right here! )

The second thing: I remember this song, how many years after I first saw it? And I found it on Youtube today and felt a desire to share it with everyone:

I always saw myself as Francine )
jade_sabre: (enchanted:  SQUEE)
and [livejournal.com profile] kayefierch GOT INTO AN MFA PROGRAM IN THE STAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATES and since she asked nicely, I will do this.

Man it has been a good week for people's futures! Lovie, Ariel, and Willow also have had all sorts of cool stuff going down for them. IN HONOR OF THE AWESOME WOMEN IN MY LIFE AND THE AWESOME PLACES THEY ARE GOING, I OFFER YOU A MEME:

In honor of International Women's Day: Name a female character I have ever written (or even one you know I happen to like or find interesting) and I will attempt a drabble/ficlet about her.

If you give me a hint, theme, keyword, lyric, etc., I will use it if it sparks something for me.

(this includes all my fandoms, even the ones I don't really participate in per se, as well as original characters like Nell and Henny and Thaddie.) (I can provide a more comprehensive list but right now I am OH MY GODing in a chat window with Leen so, uh, I'm going to go back to that.)
jade_sabre: (harthdarth:  livejournal)
You guys, I have like forty questions. And they are all ridiculous and only half are in the format I was expecting and, just, I HOPE YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU.

I left out a few “write a story” prompts because I am now sick and did not feel like going back and filling those in. So I will do that later.

So first, the character list!

1. Severus Snape, potions professor, Harry Potter
2. Toph Bei Fong, twelve-year-old blind earthbending master, Avatar: The Last Airbender
3. Ged, archmage and thief, Earthsea
4. Han Solo, smuggler and general, Star Wars
5. Attolia, queen of the country and also woman named Irene, Queen’s Thief
6. Lucy Honeychurch, young lady and piano player, A Room with a View
7. Holly Short, elf LEPrecon captain, Artemis Fowl
8. Jayne Cobb, muscleman and sniper, Firefly
9. Kyouya Ootori, high school junior and shadow king, Ouran
10. Britomart, cross-dressing female knight, The Faerie Queene
11. Alistair Theirin, Warden and bastard prince, Dragon Age
12. Noah Puckerman, ladies’ man with a sweet voice, Glee
13. Scarlett O'Hara, lady and businesswoman, Gone with the Wind
14. Bishop, ranger and scout, Neverwinter Nights 2
and a fandom repeat,
15. The Cabbage Man, a merchant, Avatar: The Last Airbender

seriously, Nessa? Seriously? )

Well, that was exhaustingly fun. I hope you enjoyed!
jade_sabre: (harthdarth:  good on the inside)
but whatevs it's the weekend (practically) (seriously tomorrow our trainer canceled so we have like three hours with our supervisor and then free pizza lunch and then we're out) and so I feel like celebrating:

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

2) Ask your friends to post questions in the comments. For example: 'One, nine and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?' 'Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?' 'Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?' 'Write a story in which three and eleven fight crime.' (...possibly not technically a question.)

3) After your friends have asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

When you see this, post an excerpt from as many random works-in-progress as you can find lying around. Who knows? Maybe inspiration will burst forth and do something, um, inspiration-y.

Since [livejournal.com profile] spellcoats was nice enough to tell you things about her WIPs, I suppose I will at least tell you fandom, unlike last time, when I just let you guess.

Also, these excerpts are longish. Oops.

(p.s. I have 24 files open right now. Some of them are also the same as last time. Oops.)

(p.p.s. I have spent at least half an hour on this, when I could have been...WRITING.)

(p.p.p.s. oh damn I forgot to include this one.)

(p.p.p.p.s. I am doing NaNo this year! I'm just not touching the forums. Except maybe to use the Fantasy Dare thread to jog my juices.)

fanfic that will probably never be finished, but has salvageable parts
most of these are RPG-related )

fic I will probably finish one day but it is taking a while
these are also RPG-related )

these are not )

original works
somehow I forgot I was writing this one )

all of these are from NaNo projects, oops )

this is not a post about Mississippi, nor is it telling you that I'm going out of town for the week for various family/friend activities--oh, wait.

Pick five of your favorite shows, in no particular order, before you read the below questions, then answer them!

y'all--I had a hard time coming up with five shows. I almost resorted to Sailor Moon. WHAT DID I WATCH BEFORE I WENT TO COLLEGE? Ganked from [livejournal.com profile] redbrunja

SIDE NOTE: I am working on those writing memes y'all gave me. But, well, the first one was supposed to be five drabbles and now it's like five pages long and not done so. You know me and brevity--it's been a while since we've had a chat.

1) ATLA (seen: entire show)
2) Chuck (seen: season one and two and the beginning of season three)
3) Enterprise (seen: almost the whole thing; did not watch the finale on principle)
4) Glee (seen: the back nine, and like half the first part of the season)
5) Bones (seen: large chunks from various seasons)

why weren't there more questions about Enterprise )
jade_sabre: (ouran:  kyouya smiling)
YEAH YEAH I TALKED TO SOME APARTMENT PEOPLE TODAY GO ME this is my prize to myself (I cannot promise not to write lots of DA fic in response to whatever you say BUT I WILL TRY TO EXTEND MYSELF).

1. Give me a character or pairing or something and a "five times" prompt.


2. Comment, and I'll do an insta-drabble ficlet thing, prompted from whatever icon you use. (I've done this one before and it is lots of fun.)


3. Give me some characters and an alternate universe. Maybe a prompt too, if you'd like. I'll give you at least a drabble about them in that universe.


4. Give me:

1. A line from a song or a poem.
2. The title of a book.
3. A color.
4. An emotion.
5. An animal.

And I will write you a slice of original fiction.
jade_sabre: (potc:  bandana will)
Thank you for yesterday's prompts; I will use them as study breaks over the next week of INTENSE WRITING OF INTENSENESS. For now, have a shorter meme, ganked from [livejournal.com profile] redbrunja. I added one more prompt in order to balance out the number of times each character appears.

1. Write down the names of 10 characters.
2. Write a fic of fifteen words or less for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers. Do NOT read the prompts before you do step 1.

1. Katara
2. Hamlet
3. Laura Farthing
4. Attolia
5. Will Schuester
6. Obi-Wan Kenobi
7. Zuko
8. Sir Nevalle
9. Ron Weasley
10. Eugenides

this was harder than I expected; frickin' word limits )

your synaesthesia.

in which you go, and tell me about random things that remind you of me. You could also do that here. I promise to reply in turn with what reminds me of you!
jade_sabre: (harthdarth:  livejournal)
A meme from Quarkie who is ignoring me to work on her ~*~artses~*~ or something thought I had fallen off the internet, brought to you by my inexplicable desire to tease you with my writing.

Post a sentence (or paragraph) or two from as many of your WIPs as you want, with no explanation attached.

They are not in any particular order, mostly sorted according to how I found them.

fanfiction )

original stuff )
jade_sabre: (sw:  scruffy-looking)
So on last night's post (which is still open; it's lovely to stretch the writing muscles, even if I'm just producing mediocre stuff), [livejournal.com profile] jakia gave me the following prompt:


And dragons.


Or a unicorn.


Well this quickly spun out of control, so here you go, HK-47 finds a unicorn. The dragon story will probably be along tomorrow.

I blame the copious amount of reading I've been doing about sexuality, and the fact that the mentality of the PC of KOTOR is really--just--delicious to play with, for the way the story shifts from nonsensically humorous to suddenly not and then back again. IT'S JUST AN EXERCISE, OKAY.

uuuuh I'm not sure it deserves a title )
jade_sabre: (s&s:  elinor writing)
pick a--a world, any world I've written in or that you've seen me write in, fandom or original, whatever. And then prompt me on it. Any prompt, be it something you've always wanted me to write, or something you've always wanted to read, or--whatever. Anything.

Hit me with it. I wanna write something.


Quark: hmm
"know that aching pull"
Jade: it's the stretch of the burn scar on his chest
it itches when Mai touches it, and tugs when Katara is near.
the end)
jade_sabre: (ouran:  wtf are you doing)
done with surgery. am now really frustrated because I cannot grump to my friends as much as I can grump to my family, and my family is not here now, so I have to be civil but I DON'T WANNA. plz stop standing over me but at the same time don't leave me alone. urgh. *grouch*

to make up for grouchiness, HIT ME WITH THIS SO HARD (and I'll get back to those other memes tomorrow too):

Pick one of my stories and I will tell you the first line of its sequel. Even if I was never actually planning to write a sequel. Even if it already has a sequel -- I'll give you the first line of another version of its sequel!

my fic can be found in my memories and on ff.net

bedtime I think.

jade_sabre: (pimpin)
blatantly, obnoxiously stolen from [livejournal.com profile] redbrunja, whose sets a high standard of meme-posting that I can only hope to aspire to

Give me a fandom and/or character and I'll give a random theory/speculation(maybe more than one) about it, absurd or real.

Ask me one question about my real life. (Note: I reserve the right to say 'that's personal' although it's more likely that I'll just vague it up for you.)

Name a fandom you wish I'd participate in more and why you'd like to see me do it.

also a treat: the first line of a novel I can't start yet:

"Galahad," Mordred said, poking his friend with a quill, "how would you like to go on a quest with me?"
jade_sabre: (avatar:  sokka love)
the romance me meme
jade_sabre: (attolia:  chibi!costis)
If I came with a warning label, what would it say?

I should do an end-of-the-semester post. I should. I should talk about what my expectations were versus what's actually happening, and where I'm going next year, but, uh, so much of that is still up in the air--I still have a dangerously high chance of doing very poorly this semester. Crapmonkies.

Also I just realized I learned to harmonize singing along to Weird Al. Huh.

Also Princess and the Frog? Go see it. <3
