Prompts: w_g character prompt,"quiet" (had to start on the first letter of the last fandom we wrote; don't think they expected anyone to start on Q!), and a quote I found on ThinkExist:
“But the waiting time, my brothers, is the hardest time of all.” ~ Sarah Doudney
( The Waiting Time )
P.S., I lose the Game. ;)
P.P.S.: One of these days, I will make room in my 15 for a QL icon. God knows I'd get enough use out of it.
"Coming home from very lonely places, all of us go a little mad: whether from great personal success, or just an all-night drive, we are the sole survivors of a world no one else has ever seen." -- John le Carre
( Coming home from very lonely places (QL, 200 words) )
Title is from a quote by John Donne, "And now good morrow to our waking souls, which watch not one another out of fear; for love, all love of other sights controls, and makes one little room, an everywhere". Not entirely sure what he's saying, but it sounded cool/appropriate.
( And now good morrow to our waking souls (Wincest) )
Confession time: This one was vastly more inspired by 4x09 "A Single Drop of Rain" than by the writing_game prompt ("vice versa") I submitted it for. Ah, well. These things happen. And regardless, I really like how it turned out. Once again, not related to the others. In the QLverse, set at some point after 4x9, with references to s3's Leap of Faith; in SN, set at some point after Great Pumpkin.
( Complications of Faith (200 words) )
Not at all related to the other two. Set pre-"Crossroads Blues". Title taken from the song that inspired this, "You're Gonna Go Far, Kid" by The Offspring.
And happily, it stops just before the bit where it doesn't make sense anymore. I call that a win. :)
( Have at it. )
Thewriting_game bug bit again. Never can predict my muses. Day 9 word count so far: 131. The 125-word version of this is over at the Week 52 w_g board; here's the trimmed-to-drabble-size, 100-word version. Set in the same universe as, and at some point after, "One for the Angels", but they're not really otherwise related. (And the monster "word" with seven hyphens has been cut, because that just felt like cheating. My writing integrity remains more or less intact.)
Day 8 word count: 725. This blows my record-so-far, Day 6's work on the Jack story, out of the water. I am ecstatic. (ETA: Disclaimer: QL/Cold Case. This scene is almost entirely taken from CC. Because CC rocks like that.)
( One for the Angels )
Day 3 word count: 135/100.
