prompt me!

Saturday is my birthday (this is not a hint, it’s just a fact) and topped 180 watchers while I wasn’t looking. These in combination make me want to do requests.

So let’s play a drabble game. You prompt me with a pairing and no more than three (3) elements, and I’ll pick . . . let’s say three, to do over the weekend. (Maybe more, if inspiration is with me.)

BTW, whenever I do one of these people apologize for requesting Jack/Ianto. There’s no need to apologize: you love Jack/Ianto, I love Jack/Ianto, we all love Jack/Ianto together.

fic game

01. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
02. Turn on your music player and put it on random/shuffle.
03. Write a ficlet related to each song that plays. You only have the time frame of the song to finish the ficlet; you start when the song starts, and stop when it’s over. No lingering afterwards!
04. Do ten of these, then post them.

14valentines: a recipe

I fell down a bit on my goal to post something every day for , but I met a deadline, so it balances out, I think. Until I have some fic ready I’ll be posting my favorite chocolate-based recipes.

Afton’s chocolate sauce


  • 4 oz. baking chocolate
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 12-ounce can of evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and the butter until they’re smooth, then stir in the the sugars. When they’re all dissolved stir in the evaporated milk. When it’s all incorporated remove from heat, add a teaspoon of vanilla, and serve over whatever you like with chocolate: vanilla ice cream, cream puffs, brownie cake, green grapes, shortbread, etc.

28 flavors of Jack Harkness

has 100 watchers! So to mark the occasion, I’ve updated the layout, and I want to play a game.

So, let’s play 28 flavors of Jack Harkness.

The rules:

You claim one prompt, I write a ficlet. Feel free to specify a pairing (canon or crossover!) you’d like to see, and I’ll do the best I can to fulfill it. (I love crack!crossovers, by the way.)

make me write stuff!

It doesn’t matter if I know you well or we’ve never spoken, you want a follow up for something I wrote last week or three years ago, if the story was 100 words or 10,000 – throw it at me.

I am currently traveling and will be Away From Keyboard most of the day . . . but I have two days off, and would love some requests to amuse myself with.

fic game: the Last of the Time Lords fic challenge

said something about covering “the lost year” and a light bulb went *click*, and so I’m presenting you all a challenge:

the year that never was multifandom fic challenge

Here’s how it works. You pick a Doctor Who or Torchwood character or characters, or another fandom, or invent an original character–or mix and match!–and write a short fic about their lives during the year of the Master. Post either the fic itself or a link to it as a comment to this entry, and I’ll compile and keep a master list.

Rules and Regs

What fandom can I use for a crossover? Any that you can make fit into the Doctor Who universe.

I can use original characters? Yup! Just, you know, make sure they fail the Mary Sue test.

What about requests/prompts? No claims or requests this time around. Your prompt is ‘the Master’s dystopia’, so do with that what you will.

What about repetition of characters or settings? Repetition is allowed. If we get ten stories about Sally Sparrow, yay; if we get ten stories about Jack Bauer, also yay. It’s about the different visions you all bring to the same idea (which is what fanfic is, at its heart, sez I.)

What about length and ratings and all that technical stuff? Ratings: any. Length: let’s say between 100 and 1000 words, though if it goes longer that’s good, too. Do your summaries in the usual way, and if it’s a crossover be sure to mention which other fandom(s) you’re using.

What’s the deadline? I’m going to say August 4, 2007, midnight your time. That gives you just under a month. The master list will be compiled on the 5th.

When can we start posting? As soon as you’re ready.

How do I post the fic as a comment to this entry? Put your title, rating and fandoms if it’s a crossover in the subject line, and copy and paste the fic into the comment box.

How do I post the fic as a link? Put your title, rating and fandoms if it’s a crossover in the subject line, and post the link in the comment box.

Can I post the fic to other comms? Yes! No waiting period.

Is there a limit to how many fics I can write? No! Your only limit is your imagination.

How do I leave feedback to a fic? At the author’s comment if it’s posted in the comments to this entry, or at the fic itself if it’s linked.

Any other questions? Ask me here!

Feel free to pimp this challenge. The more the merrier!
