Meme and stuff  
Well, I should be reporting on the great freeform con I went to half of, or my experiences of the Merlin Barbican thing (which were great apart from being cut-off at the end and having to sneak past a large trainee security guard in order to say hi to Colin and Katie - I missed Bradley) but in actual fact I came away rather ill, and having lost my voice I am instead doing a meme nicked from j_apollo. Of course!

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

1. Merlin Emrys (Merlin)
2. Colin Morgan (Merlin RPS)
3. Ianto Jones (Torchwood)
4. Rodney McKay (SGA)
5. George Sands (Being Human)
6. Arthur Pendragon (Merlin)
7. Charlie Pace (Lost)
8. Topher Brink (Dollhouse)
9. Bradley James (Merlin RPS)
10. John Sheppard (SGA)

I hope it's not cheating to put in RPS characters... :)

First Time, 4 and 6 (Rodney and Arthur)
"I come back from Avalon and all I get is this lousy sex pollen?" demanded Arthur. Rodney could only moan.

Angst, 7 (Charlie)
He doesn't want to breathe the water in but he must. Soon. He hopes the message on his hand helps…

AU, 1 and 8 (Merlin and Topher)
"Well, haven't you got an unusual brain?" Topher stares back at the man in his chair, as his eyes flash yellow-gold.

Threesome, 3, 6, and 9 (Ianto, Arthur and Bradley)
"Jack will be so jealous," giggles Ianto over his fouth margarita in some space dive. "I've never shagged twins before."

Hurt/Comfort, 5 and 10 (George and Sheppard)
Sheppard dabbed at his shallow cuts, before reassuring the naked man. "It's ok, the creature's gone." He still seemed upset.

Crack, 1 (Merlin)
Merlin flicked his tail and sped away from the shore. But he'd be back, Arthur was too pretty to leave.

Horror, 10 (Sheppard)
"John!" Rodney screamed, "John!" But Sheppard couldn't take watching Rodney lose himself, his mind, piece by piece. He walked away.

Baby Fic, 5 and 9 (George and Bradley)
Bradley blinked at the hairy offsping that George was so proudly showing him. So that's what werewolf babies looked like.

Dark, 2 and 8 (Colin and Topher)
"What's your name?" Topher asks. "Colin." Topher kicks him over, stares at the scars - but the name doesn't match.

Romance, 4 and 7 (Rodney and Charlie)
"Look, there's sun and sea - what could be more romantic?" Charlie smiles.
"Not being marooned?" Rodney crosses his arms.

Death Fic, 2 and 3 (Colin and Ianto)
Well, that was a pointless way to die, Colin thinks, as the credits roll on Children of Earth, Day 4.

Just to add, Katie remembered me and said it was lovely to see me again :) And Colin looked so relieved when I asked him how the Scottish filming had gone and said 'It's finished!' And then I had to hide behind a strange fangirl (sorry about that!) who was shorter than me. So that went well.

Yes you should ;)

I had a great couple of days - I loved both Epic games, btw. Had great fun - I was the only European to get to El Dorito! \o/ I was the evil manager in Almost Crazy. I really enjoyed auditioning people, it was very 'dance, my paeons, dance'. *hee*

I ran Toy Story, which seemed to go well, and I was in Providence, which I enjoyed because I had a very intense game, until I realised that most of the game was actually in my own head. My big emotional moment was spoilt by the end of the game too, but that's probably my fault, I didn't know we were so close to the end at the time. Brian makes a great family member!

I think you've confused your numbers somewhere - Dark 2&8 should be Ianto and Topher by the list you've typed up.

(And I'm amused by the margherita/margarita typo - four pizzas and still enough energy to shag twins? Blimey!)
Valderys: Avon - slightly sanevalderys on November 23rd, 2009 11:01 pm (UTC)
Ok, the typo will be changed, trust me not to check :) For some reason, when I go through them, I've been consistant with who is wrong, so I can only assume I changed the characters in the numbered list when I copied it over, I have no idea how!

All I can say is, like my favourite gravestone, 'told you I was ill...'

I loved these. Especially the Dark!Fic. I now have visions of Bradley, Katie, Angel, and Tony (Richard is, alas, probably gone by then) all holed up in Pierrefonds trying to work out how to weather the storm. That much stone must surely interfere with The Signal...
Valderys: Vila - another bad planvalderys on November 24th, 2009 01:49 pm (UTC)
Just a little writing exercise - my brain wouldn't handle anything more :) I would actually like to write some Dollhouse fic, but I haven't as yet come up with a plot bunny.
prochytesprochytes on November 24th, 2009 04:09 pm (UTC)
It does have intriguing fic possibilities. I wrote a TW/Dollhouse crossover a while back ("A Room Somewhere"), and the thing I have on the drawing-board right now is Dollhouse/Who ("The View from the Pavillion").

Get well soon!

Yep - my brain isn't working that well at the mo, hence 20 words fics. But I'm not allowing myself to think about writing for anything other than my required stuff for Yuletide and other ficathons, because I haven't the writing time at the moment either...
