[ profile] angearia's started this again - and I haven't done it for more than a year, so...

1.) Go to my fic list and pick out a line or two from one of my stories. (Must be a full line, please -- no sentence fragments or speech tags or other such nonsense.)
2.) I will respond with which story of mine I think it's from.
3.) If you do stump me, I might be able to provide a drabble. Feel free to post a prompt!

You all knew I'd end up doing this one, right?

Describe your country's history - not as it really was, but as the average person in your country remembers it. What are the major events that everybody knows about? What's taught in schools? What do your politicians and media talk about when they want to boast about how great your country is? Or are there embarrassing episodes in your nation's past that everybody knows about but nobody likes to mention?

We're not looking for a balanced, measured or accurate view here. Broad generalisations and sweeping stereotypes are welcome.

(See also: the British version, the American version, and the Swedish version.)

Aussie history, as I learned it at school )

(Gacked from [ profile] snickfic.)

Comment and I'll tell you my favourite fic of yours that I've read, and why. If it's a longfic, I'll try to pinpoint favourite chapter (but no guarantees!). Or, in the event that I haven't read anything of yours, I'll comment back and ask for one thing of yours I absolutely must read.

Now, here's hoping I actually can remember everyone's stories...

A meme!

...because I succumbed to peer pressure in the form of [ profile] snickfic and [ profile] angearia.

Ask me one fandom-related question in the comments. This can be fandom specific, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general. Favorite character, favorite moment, unpopular opinion, something about a fic of mine... whatever. Subparts allowed. Wackiness encouraged.

Go nuts!

Meme stolen from [ profile] brutti_ma_buoni:
Post a paragraph from all the WIPs you can find, no further comments.

I don't have any "WIPs" in the "already posted half of it" sense, but I do have quite a few unfinished fics floating around on my hard drive. So here goes...

Give me the title of a story I've never written, and feedback telling me what you liked best about it, and I will tell you any of: the first sentence, the last sentence, the thing that made me want to write it, the biggest problem I had while writing it, why it almost never got posted, the scene that hit the cutting room floor but that I wish I'd been able to salvage, or something else that I want readers to know.

Tell me about a story I've never written!

1) Go to my fic list and pick out a line or two from one of my stories. (Must be a full line, please -- no sentence fragments or speech tags or other such nonsense.)
2) I will respond with which story of mine I think it's from.
3) A drabble to anyone who stumps me! If you do stump me, feel free to give me a prompt.

I'll commit to doing at least five drabbles, but if everyone stumps me, I might have to give up on doing any more than that...

Okay. In honour of me being bored, here's a memeishy thing...

(stolen from [ profile] snowpuppies)

The rules: Give me one of my stories and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

Can't promise I'll manage every request, but I'll try for a few, at any rate.

Go nuts!

Found this... um... somewhere? On LJ maybe?

fic writingness )

Stolen from many many people.

Pick up to 15 OTPs (OT3s, or preferred pairings).
Describe them in less than 15 words.
Have your flist guess the OTP.

1) dollar bill, leave them on, figure of speech, you think you know me?
2) soul and soulless, show you the world, the only good thing, dear boy
3) scientist and soldier, ruined my life, learning English, on the run, radiant
4) not the famous one in the family, bank heists and kleptomania, allowed to kill you
5) against regulations, taking advantage of time loops, what if…?, stuck with second best
6) it’s killing me, seething hatred, thanks for saying it, back step
7) not the one she wanted, Gone With The Wind, it’s just tea, kite string
8) whatever we want, you can’t do that… it’s wrong, I’m getting it
9) equal and opposite, I don’t kill anyone, dead bodies and second chances
10) change back, my guide, no perfect day, don’t ever be her

Any ideas?

Dear Fanlings,

Today is More Joy Day. In honour of this momentous occasion, I have an offer: Comment, and I will post you a Valentine’s Day card (that will hopefully reach you by Valentine’s Day… *grumble grumble international mail grumble*).

The card will NOT be from me,
and it will NOT be to you.

This is a card that originated in the Buffyverse, from one character to another, and fell through a hole in space-time, somehow ending up here.

The Rules )

Or, if a month is too long to wait for your joy, look at this instead! Oh how fun!

*hugs you all*

Last Lines

Herein lies a version of the Last Line Meme (ganked from [ profile] beer_good_foamy and [ profile] stormwreath), reworked to deal with the fact that I’ve written far too much fanfic this year, and so a list would be incredibly long, and increasingly boring.

Instead, I’ve tried something a bit different…

in which Buffy has two romances and a great deal of angst, Dawn feels guilty, Andrew pines, and Fred has a big axe )

Congratulations [ profile] snowpuppies, you actually convinced me to do a meme…

Sometimes it's ok to pimp yourself out. Post a list of your top five fic-favorites you've written, regardless of fandom or the reason you love them. This isn't about the BEST things you've written, but what you LOVE most. Then tag five other people to do the same.

my faves )

And now, I think I'll tag [ profile] curiouswombat, [ profile] dreamincolor, [ profile] elisi, and... hmm... anyone else that wants to, really...
