Samverse doubledrabble set during "Swan Song". Major spoilers, of course. And I didn't get all I wanted to address addressed in this one -- and I had to cut it down from about 260 words as it is! -- so I'm expecting this to be the first of two. We'll see how it goes; this one was hard enough! Enjoy.

More or less written 2/10/10. Finally finished it up just now. I'm expecting this to be the first of at least two "Swap Meat" drabbles in this 'verse, but we'll see. For now, here's Sam's. (ETA: And I'm not 100% happy with the title, but I figure if the writers can make an otherwise-unrelated, cheesy pun, then so can I. :))

Samverse. Yes, really. Finished and everything. For the first time since November. Aren't you shocked? I know I am. Anyway, this one's changed a lot since the first draft of it back in November, but hopefully that's for the better. :) Enjoy.

I started this March 10th, 2006. I picked it up again at the prompting of [livejournal.com profile] bloodyfire on [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic exactly three years later, and now it's finally done. (And boy does it feel good to have finally finished a WIP!) I did my best to make it as current-canon-compliant as possible, but it's unbetaed, so all failings in that respect and any others are my own. Enjoy! (800 words.)

Certainties become less clear. )

I've been waiting a couple days to write this, almost forgot about it, but here it is! I'm pretty pleased. Might cut it to drabble-size, might not; we'll see. Prompt was "The Things They Carried". That's one of my favorite books of all time, so I wrote this in tribute. Nothing you might recognize was intended as plagiarism.

*sigh* This is why I don't write shippy stories. At least I managed to keep this from turning out as bad as it could have, right? 200 words. Day 17 word count: 244/100, give or take a few.

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.

Day 16 word count so far: 338. (All for this doubledrabble. Cut it to 300, then cut it again. For once, it stayed just as good.)

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.

NaNo halfway point has been reached. Day 15 word count: 122, nine in more notes for the QL transfic, and the rest for this one for writing_game, which I've trimmed down to 100 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. )

Blame for this goes to [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo, for giving me a word count that I still hadn't met at 11:45 tonight; to Write or Die, for helping me meet said word count in five minutes; and to [livejournal.com profile] writing_game, for prompting (unofficially) with the odd but somehow inspiring word "verisimilitude". Day 13 word count: 112 words/100.

The[info]writing_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.)

I need sleep, but I promised Caitlin I'd post this, so here it is. It started out as SN/ML, and turned into... post-"Great Pumpkin" angst, I guess. *shrug* Half of that's definitely not going in the final crossover, but at least I also got a plot more or less ironed out for said crossover (the word count of which I am so counting in my daily count, lol). Anyway, have a drabble.

Was crazy-busy today, but when I took a break and read some fic, I got inspired (by this story) to write a SN/QL ficlet of my very own. Not sure how good it is, but at least it's writing, and at least I got anything at all written for[community profile] writing_gamethis week; "astute" just wasn't very inspiring. 100 words.


One for the Angels )

Day 3 word count: 135/100.
lonetread: (Default)

Or, "Mini_nano, Day 2, take two." Inspired by a combination of the second Day 2 quote prompt ("To change one's life: Start immediately. Do it flamboyantly. No exceptions." -- William James) and my own T research that I've been doing for the past couple of hours tonight. Thankfully, this one is not otherwise based on my experiences. 100 words.

SN, spoilers for "It's the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester". 100 words. (Edit: Replaced an extra word with one that made more sense.)

Day 2 total so far: 121/100.

Have a Samverse drabble, inspired by the Day 1 image prompt over on [info]mini_nanowrimo. 100 words. Set after "Getting Reaquainted" (in other words, during 1x01).

College, and a sample of the sort of amusing conversation we have at work. )

Finally, have some links:
1. Now this would be interesting. Ah, the joys of one missing comma and [livejournal.com profile] badfic_quotes.
2. I saw one of these ads once and lol'd. I'm half-glad and half-disappointed they finally figured it out. I really want to know what they thought it meant, anyway. I'd say some twenty-something working there had a hand in getting it out in public for the lulz, except I doubt anyone who knew what it meant would have been able to keep enough of a straight face for that to work. Plus, that would be career suicide. However, the idea that no one there knew that phrase is mind-boggling. *shakes head*
3. And I know that one guy's been spamming every trans comm on LJ with this, but I thought it was a cool story, so for folks who haven't had their flists eaten by all his posts: the trans chicken.

Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] writing_game's still open, don't know for how long. I may or may not try to sqeeze in another fic before the board closes. If I do, I'll edit.

ETA:
Did it. All I had to do was fake to the muses that I was going to sleep, and I had the first paragraph within three minutes. (Lol, I'm onto you guys!) Anyway, here's the double-drabble I came up with. (I was complaining to the muses that Sam/Ruby isn't even my OTP, so they showed mercy and got the Wincest in there too.)

Forgot some things last update, and have some new things, so have an entry. I'm sure I'll forget more things, but hey, it happens.

1. I love my new ID. I got sirred at Xcetera for once, today.

2. Supernatural Creator to Fans: Dean is Not a Dick. I lol'd. Guess this means it hasn't got something to do with Sammy's demon blood after all, though. Hm.
 

3. Re: posting and crossposting my QL fics. )


4. I almost got hosed by a question on yesterday's CS homework (you know, CS, that class I skip all the tiime because I could teach it? yeah, that one. *headdesk*). I actually turned in a 350-line, buggy program for the partial credit. Happily, I ended up getting it solved in about 60 lines, instead, once I got back from work. That would have been embarrassing.

5. And here, for your reading pleasure, you can have the two new SN stories I wrote last night/this morning without even clicking on a link (beause, um, I edited the second one after I posted it there, so. yeah.). References to "Metamorphosis" and major spoilers for "Yellow Fever", respectively.

Finished the Sam/Ruby over at writing_game. I noticed after the fact that some things are wonky about my understanding (or lack thereof) of the perspective of my POV character, but try not to pay attention to that, lol. I'll probably rewrite before I post it anywhere else, but it's there to read now if you want.

Sarah Palin on SNL. (Still need to watch this one, but I'll do it once the homework gets done.)

Six Word Stories (by Famous Writers). Oh, Joss. Lulz. :D If you're only going to click on one link, make it this one.

ETA: XKCD strip. Read the strip, and then check out that comment thread. Ubergeek!Leapers, unite!

And I will do the WIP meme (flocked) at some point, too. Really. God knows I've got enough to choose from. I can't finish anyth

Wrote this drabble almost a month ago (6/12/08), finally decided to post it. It's in the Samverse, and set during 1x07, "Hook Man". 

Thanks to

[profile] zerawolfe7, for helping me place it in the timeline.

For the record: if/when the long version of this story ever gets off the ground, this scene will be fleshed out and include more interesting things than all this dialogue, like lots of violence (the boys start it, of course).

But for now...
