Rating: G
Word Count: 1,552
Genre: Drama, romance
Fandom: Pokémon

Warnings: Character death
Summary: Greek mythology AU. He's always been an artist; she's always been his equal.
Author's Note: For [personal profile] mercoledi as part of pokeprompts' yearly holiday fanwork exchange. I tried for her reincarnation prompt with a dash of her transformation prompt for spice but ended up not quite filling either of them, whoops. Fic title is from “I Look to You” by Miami Horror (ft. Kimbra), which you shouldn't listen to when reading this. :x Thanks to [personal profile] kuruk for betaing, and to [personal profile] keltena and [personal profile] axolotl for assistance with the ending.

Author's Note: For Rosejailmaiden as part of tumblr's Secret Stantler exchange. The idea of the Rocket party is taken from this fic. A million, billion thanks to [personal profile] kuruk/dragoplateau, for this fic would be nothing without him.

I told people to make me write them Red/Green fics on tumblr and they gave me prompts and, uh, I wrote stuff. The first one I just wrote for myself, though.

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

Not sure any of you will bite, but I'd really love it if you did ;_;

Title: Blooming
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 730
Genre: Romance
Fandom: The Time Traveler's Wife
Pairings: Alba/Original Male Character
Warnings: UST, although at least everyone is legal
Summary: Chrono-displaced persons have a bad habit of meeting the love of their life in backyards, several years too early.
Author's Note: THIS IS A MILLION YEARS LATE for [livejournal.com profile] gemjam, who won my auction at the "Help The South" fandom auction almost a year ago. Thank you so much for bidding on me! As an apology, I wrote you something a little longer, although it's still pretty short. I hope this is to your liking, and I'm so sorry if it's not—I haven't read this book in a long time. My prompt was, "What I'd love is something from Alba when she's growing up a bit more, maybe in her late teens or early twenties. I'd love to see her falling in love for the first time and how she meets him. Whether it's in a time travelling way like how her parents met or whether she meets him normally but has to make allowances for the time travelling." I've actually had this plot bunny for a year, but just never had time to sit down and write it!

Pretend for a minute that the only contact you have ever had with me is through my fic. We've never exchanged LJ/DW comments or emails, never hung out in chat or on IM, never talked on the phone or met each other in person, none of that stuff. The only thing you know about me is the kind of fic I write.

What kind of person would you think I am? How would you describe my attitudes and opinions about real-life issues? Or, to rephrase it: Based on the way I write my characters, and the way they speak, think, and behave, what would that say to you about me?


I really want to know, actually.

I've been playing writing meme games on tumblr. This is a massive pile of one-sentence fills and flashfics, organized by fandom, longest fills on top. All are rated G unless otherwise indicated on the ficlet itself.

I've got a few more fills that I'm working on. Not sure if I'm going to add them to this massive post or make them their own new post; we'll see.

Title: Problem Solving
Rating: G
Word Count: 704
Genre: Humor, Friendship, Fluff
Fandom: Pokémon
Pairings: Ethan+Lyra
Warnings: SUPER WAFFy no seriously
Summary: Ethan is the man with the plan.
Author's Note: Ethan and Lyra are seven or eight years old here. For [personal profile] sarajayechan on one of the desperation request posts that I throw up sometimes. The prompt was "wherever we are, together we'll be." I've mentioned this before, but whenever I write Ethan and Lyra, especially as children, they are super-glued to each other—always touching and hugging—so sorry for that in advance.

I was digging through my writing notebooks and old files and I found some snippets that I'd never published; or at least, never published here. So here they are. I had a third fic, too, but the file's corrupted and I can't figure out how to fix it.

I never do this, but as this is the result of three months of work (and yet still not done!) and also the longest thing I have ever attempted to write, I would really appreciate it if you'd leave a note or comment telling me what you think of it! Anon comments are on at the fic's comm :)

Summary: French is the language of love.
Author's Note: I write stupid things for the people I love:

Title: Metamorphosis
Rating: PG-13 for cursing
Word Count: 4,302
Genre: AU, Romance, Character Study
Fandom: Pokémon
Pairings: Red, Green, Leaf, Ethan; focuses and pairings change with each fic
Warnings: None
Summary: Several AU exercises (fighter pilot, college, rock star, road trip, pokemon researcher, secret agent, modern high school/waiter).
Author's Note: For [community profile] pokeprompts' May 2012 challenge. Some of these are WIPs/incomplete, but they were all great fun to write :)! You may notice that Ethan's characterization changes wildly from fic to fic; that is because in my head, my Ethan wears many different hats, and I decided to try them all out. Remember: each universe and fic is completely separate from the others, including characterization!

I was going mad from the need to write, so I did some ten-minute writing exercises to scratch the itch. (I cheated on the first one, though.) Barely edited, not beta'd at all.

Chewing on Pearls | Elesa/White | 858 words | PG | Character study, drama | prompt (I did not follow this at all) | for [personal profile] axolotl
Please note that my Elesa and White characterizations are wildly different from canon and probably fanon, you have been warned. In particular, my White is an orphan who lives in the battle subway, and my Elesa is all fangs and sharp edges. The backstory for this is that a while after the events of B/W, White comes up through the gym challenge to become the next champion after Black. Black and White are not friends in this universe.

Title: Epicureanism
Rating: PG
Word Count: 4,040
Genre: Romance, Humor
Fandom: Super Junior
Pairings: Kyuhyun/Zhou Mi
Warnings: Food porn, kind of...
Summary: Modern AU. Zhou Mi teaches Kyuhyun about the finer things in life.
Author's Notes: SAIC is the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. It also happens to be the abbreviation of the Science Applications International Corporation (an engineering company). It's...something like a pun. For [livejournal.com profile] evaporate for [livejournal.com profile] qmidayeveryday, originally posted here. My prompt was "Slice of life domesticity AU. Kyuhyun does not get to do the grocery shopping." Many thanks to [personal profile] koyuki, who helped me untangle plot points and grammar hiccups with equal ease, and Brave, who cheered me on.

Title: Guardian
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,230
Genre: Character Study, Drama, Survival, Romance
Fandom: Super Junior
Pairings: Kangin/Leeteuk
Warnings: Slavery, harlequin romance plotline (sob)
Summary: Shipwreck AU. Kangin nods. It's not the first time he's escorted royal goods; his ship is the fastest and most experienced in his kingdom's fleet, and a goodwill gift is nothing out of the ordinary.
Author's Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] taintedwindows for [personal profile] sujuexchange, originally posted here. The exchange mods blackmailed me called me in at the very last minute to pinch-hit. I used the prompt "It deepens like a coastal shelf." Somewhat inspired by "The Open Boat" by Stephen Crane and The Life of Pi by Yann Martel, if by "inspired" I mean "does a horrible disservice to." I could have done more with this, I think, but time restraints...
