As I'm in need of some fun distraction, here's a meme I copied from [livejournal.com profile] fire_lord_azula .

Name a character and I'll tell you three (or more) facts about them from my own personal headcanon.

If I've ever mentioned a fandom, or wrote about one (even in a crossover) then it's fair game. :)

All right, guys.

I have the house all to myself tonight, a refillable glass of alcoholic eggnog to one side, a snoring mastiff at my feet, and a plot bunny with no feasible plot. It's meme time!!!!

The Universe:
  • Sokka was born female.
  • She is still not a bender.
  • Her name is still Sokka. (I blame Hakoda and Kya for that one.)
  • .... That's pretty much it.

The Rules: 

1)  Up to 4 prompts per participant, unless I reply and say you can add more.

2)  Prompts can range from fluffy to dark. (Example Prompt: Girl!Sokka loves braiding Katara's hair. Sister bonding time!) Or (Example Prompt: Hahn knows Yue is fickle and sets his eyes to another Water Tribe princess just in case...  )

3)  Prompts can also range from serious to wacky. (Example Prompt: Hakoda dearly wanted his first born to be a boy.) or (Example Prompt Long Feng kidnaps Girl!Sokka and it's up to Prince Zuko to rescue his beloved! Lol) 

4)  I'll keep writing until I either pass out tonight, or puke eggnog out my nose. (There's a Merry Christmas image for you.)

Let's see how different (or not) having girl Sokka would change things. :D
Go go go go go!!!

I have no idea if anyone actually HAS these types of questions, but... what the hell. (And I swear I'm going to stop with these memes and come out with maor fan fiction real soon.)

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] strawberryburst 

I think it would be fun to talk about stories, but the usual memes are like, "What happens next?" "Tell me about Character A?" Which isn't so much talking about stories as it is writing more of a story. But you know how sometimes you read something and you're like, "I got ___ out of this story, I wonder if I have that right?" or "What on earth was ____ supposed to be?" and it's too awkward to ask the author? Now you could totally ask!

I've heard people say that writing is hard because you have to make decisions, but we never really talk about the decisions we make with stories or why we make them. We talk about plot bunnies, but not about how we actually turn them into a story.

And it seems like a lot more fun to do that than to do working.

So, if you wanted, ask me questions! (Or use this to ask your flist to ask you questions).

What were you trying to do [here]? Why did you decide to ____? This is what I thought about xyz, is that what you were going for? What made you write ____? Why did you decide to do this? And so on.

Since all of my plot bunnies as of late tend to revolve around characters who help train tiny ninjas... I'm posting this meme to help me get back into the Avatar swing of things. ;D

The rules to this meme are fairly open and simple.

1) Must be Avatar: The Last Airbender only. No crossovers allowed. (Don't distract me with your tasty, tasty other fandoms!!)
2) Everyone allowed 3 prompts. Unless you have more than 3 in mind. Then, by all means, post 'em.
3) AT LEAST one of these prompts must be an AU, since AU's are usually what tempts my muse the most. (Can be anything, from dark to genderbent to cracky).
4) Requests for sequels and AU's to any of my previous fic are totally allowed (including Avatar crossovers). A list of my fic can be found here. But give me a hint in what you want. (Because this is to rescue me from writers block) Please nothing like "Apple Falls Far 2, please." I'd much prefer something like, "Apple Falls Far -- Zuko encounters the WT during Day of The Black Sun" or whatever.
5) Many will enter. Few will win. ;D

So, spend a couple of seconds and help a fellow Avatard writer out? I've been waiting here with my butterfly plot bunny net, but nothing has been happening! :(

Well bashing my head against the desk for the last three days isn't helping me out of this odd funk I'm in. Grr. I can't seem to write recently, and when I do, it's shit. (No, really.) 


Could you spare a moment and help me out? Some of my best ideas come from meme's. :D

This is going to be pretty open: Name a character (or characters), fandom, and a prompt. I'm open for AU, something from my current universes (Another Brother, In His Shoes, Rampage, Apple Falls Far... ect), genderbent, romance, crack, whatever. Just no prompts based on songs, please. I'm never inspired by those.

Limit to four requests per person.

you are violet

Your dominant hues are red and blue. You're confident and like showing people new ideas. You play well with others and can be very influential if you want to be.

Your saturation level is lower than average - You don't stress out over things and don't understand people who do. Finishing projects may sometimes be a challenge, but you schedule time as you see fit and the important things all happen in the end, even if not everyone sees your grand master plan.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.

I guess it's somewhat right... maybe?

Your result for The Fan Fiction Personality Test...

The True Fan

OOC is blasphemy, canon is everything.

Once you fall in love with a movie, book or TV series, you are loyal like an old dog. You take fanfiction quite serious and use it as a substitute after the canon ran out.

You are probably a walking dictionary of your favourite fandom and you are picky about what you write and read. The closer to the "real thing" fanfiction is, the more you like it.

You rather explore a character in all depth, see new sides and learn more about them than creating new characters or mix up the situations they are in.

Take The Fan Fiction Personality Test at OkCupid

Now this one is scary accurate because one time I took a WHOLE bunch of selvia and meditated for awhile and then, unexpectedly, I "saw" the manifestation of my demon -- er-- anyway, in my drugged out mind it was a yellow-billed magpie.

Your result for The Golden Compass Daemon Test...

Jokester Soul

You are a confident person with a strong sense of self. You can be loud and jocular, and you don't really care who hears you. You don't spend too much time stressing about how other people see you. If they like you, well, good for them. If they don't like you, well, that's their own problem.

People need to earn your respect in order for you to really start taking them into consideration. You might bend yourself over backwards for a friend or family member, but you aren't going to give that sort of special treatment to any old Joe Blow. Your loved ones know that under that bold, brash exterior, there is a person who is loyal and even clannish at times. You will fight to defend your friends and family from any and all comers. With these special few, you drop that joking exterior and be your real self.

Your daemon's form would represent your confident ways, your joking and insensitive manner, and your secret tendency for softheartedness. He or she would probably help you criticize all the idiots whom you meet on a day to day basis, and back you up when you are on the defensive.

Suggested forms: Magpie, Raven, Kangaroo, Wild Boar, Baboon.

If you could erase five characters from any fandom, who would you choose?

1. Ty Lee. Seriously, what exactly did she contribute to the show? I dislike comic relief characters, and they could have easily written around Mai's Heel Face Turn without Ty Lee involved.
2. Data. Even as a kid, I always pretty much rolled my eyes all through the episodes that surrounded this character. Actually, I think "Data's Day" is the only TNG ep I never watched all the way through... and that's saying a lot, considering how hard core of a TNG geek I was when I was a kid. I'd even skip the books with him as a main character. He's just... annoying. I always felt that he had 35 years or so of contact with humanity before joining the Enterprise and so there was no excuse for him acting the way he did. He was comic relief that fell flat for me. Sorry. I thought the show would have been even (more) awesome with him written out.
3. Sasuke. Think about this... No Sasuke in team Kakashi... no ultra ridiculously powerful Uchiha clan. (Kakashi could have gotten his eye from someone else.) Instead, they put in Shikamaru. HOLY CRAP. Naruto would still have someone to challenge him, because Shika is waaaay too lazy to take anything seriously, but he's a genius (and that would just piss Naruto off, and he'd work extra hard to show him up). You have Naruto's brawn, Shikamaru's brains and... whatever the hell Sakura does. It would be epic.
4. Lana Lane. Her continued presence was pretty much the reason I stopped watching Smallville. She went beyond Mary-Sue into some sort of writer's darling. God, she sucks.
5. Vala from SG1. Now granted I only saw the later episodes sparingly, but she was uninteresting in every one of them. Why was she there again?

If you could beef up the role of five characters from any fandom, who would you choose?
  1. Ax from The Animorphs. He always seemed to have one of the most compelling stories to me. Forget Cassie and her crises on if suppressing animal instincts made them like Yeerks... Ax lived always in his brother's shadow, is stranded on a alien planet,in a war that's going badly, and he has Marco as a roommate.
  2. The Dragons from Dragonriders of Pern. Seriously, I know they were animals and didn't often add unsolicited advice, but sometimes in the later books I didn't feel their presence at all. Or the ones by Todd McCaffrey the dragonless riders pretty much got over losing their dragon in a snap. Lame.
  3. This will surprise, like, no one, but I thought Zuko should have joined the cast earlier in season 3. It was pretty obvious he was unhappy from the start and a lot of season 3 were the Gaang goofing around stealing money, saving factories and dancing in school. Also lame. He could have been in eariler and we could have seen more dork!Zuko. Plus, it might have done him some good to get to know his own country a little from a peasant's POV.
  4. More Draco Malfoy please. I don't want the Draco in Leather Pants Draco, either. I want screwed up, racist little shit Draco in book 7, trying to save his mom and dad from Voldermort and hating every minute of it because he has to be around the Mudblood, the Chosen One and the Blood Traitor. That's what I wanted.
  5. I had another answer in here, but I just changed it (haha, I can do that). Other than Shikamaru I would like to see more Iruka. I swear that guy has more going for him than just simple academy teacher. He's a hidden badass, I know it.

• "You are one sick puppy" Ship:Toph/Iroh
• "I dabble a little" Ship: Suko/Zuko
• "It's like a car crash" Ship: Jet/Zuko
• "Tickles my fancy but not sold just yet" Ship: Toph/Sokka
• "Makes no canon sense but why the heck not" Ship: Sokka/Mai
• "Everyone else loves it but I just don't feel it" Ship: Sokka/Suki

Name 5 dead characters you'd like to see resurrected for the purposes of the plot

  1. Kutner from House. I'm happy for the actor and his cool new job, but I'm going to miss the character. :(
  2. Jack O'Niell from SG1. Now I know he isn't dead, but when he left the Stargate program he might as well have been. 
  3. Jet from Avatar... I would totally want him to show up at the Western Air Temple and make trouble for the GAang.
  4. Wirenth from Dragon Riders of Pern. Her death was... so sad...  so preventable.*sniff* And I didn't like the message that came along with it. (Giving into lust with someone you don't love = death, ladies!)
  5. Mufasa from The Lion King. Just for the sheer mind-fuck of it all. Haha!
Name 4 you'd like to see dead for the sake of the plot
  1. Data from Star Trek TNG. Well okay, it happened in the movie, and I rejoiced, but it should have happened earilar.
  2. Tea (Anzu) from Yu-Gi-Oh. Granted, I mostly only know she show from the abridged series, but she's less than useless. Kill her!
  3.  I'm only halfway through Naruto and just got to the part where they aged up, but I think the series would be better without Sasuke, honestly. He sucks. A lot. At least Zuko had a soild reason for his betrayal!
  4. Suki. Maybe it's the sadist in me that just wants to keep ripping Sokka's heart from his chest with dead girlfriends, but... yeah, Suki totally should have died at the end of the series. *Insert Kill Bill music*
Name 3 character couples you want to see in an ongoing series:
  1. Even what I said about Sasuke... the slasher in me could totally see a romantic/working partnership between Naruto/Sasuke. You know, when they're of legal age.
  2. I think a series about Katara/Aang traveling the world and fixing things up would be a fun to see. Well, maybe not a whole series, but at least an episode! 
  3. Tamir and Ki from the Tamir trilogy. I squeeled when they got together, and now I want to see them rule the kingdom.
Name 2 canon couples you hope break up:
  1. Mai/Zuko. I just... she would suck as Fire Lady.
  2. Nikki/Bill (Big Love...HE can do so much better)
Name the last series finale you watched
  1. Uh... Jon and Kate plus 8, I think.

Oh geez, this is probably going to be lengthy... I'm including all sorts of stuff in here. Since I like writing in extra-short sentences I'm cheating a little and post the last small segment I wrote. Good luck guessing which is which! :D

Post a single sentence *cough cheating cough* from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations.

- Chihiro lay flat in the short grass, both wings spread to their full length while Katara’s daemon preened her red feathers — rearranging them and smoothing them out again with tiny bites.

- Sighing, Draco started the long process of organizing his newspaper shavings in a nest again. Something purple above him caught his eye, and he looked up, noticing a fabric triangle tube hanging at the top of his cage for the first time.

- “You will all be told only what your male counterparts have been advised: Do not show any fear and do not let her eat too much.” Ohlynn spared a terse smile at the candidates. "And good luck."

- Zuko hovered awkwardly to the side, bracing himself for a catfight. He had seen the water and earthbender snap at each other before, and with all the stress and hunger and Katara’s grief for her father thrown into the mix…

- Harry turned towards Malfoy. “We’re not… we’re not in Britain. We’re not even on Earth, are we? Or at least… not on our Earth...”

- Mounting his stolen horse, Aarork gestured to Tiber. “Ride hard. Do not allow your beast to stop,” he said, before kicking his bare heels savagely into the horse's flank.

- “Uncle,” said Zuko, a little desperately. He knew what was coming. “No one cares about old family stories.”

- Come on, Clark. Lex thought. Look at me… this isn’t right. You have to know something isn’t right…

- “They won’t care much about me, except for maybe slave labor in a mine or something and I don’t want to have to spell it out to you, but you’re a firebender. It’s not enough that Iroh gets the Avatar or else he would have halfway back to the Fire Nation by now. He has to get the rouge, too.”

- Ron rose out of his seat and read over Harry’s shoulder. First his brown eyes widened, then narrowed. Finally he said, “You’re not practicing that on me, mate.”

Some of those are ooooold. o_O. Luckily, I usually don't leave that much unfinished.
