I haven't done a music meme in a million years. Consequently, here's one. Standard fare, iTunes on random, songs in order, no skips, blah blah blah.

Summerboy? I'm not sure I've ever even heard that... )

In response to [ profile] maharet83's meme...

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick four/five of your userpics.
2. Make a post and talk about the icons I chose.*
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee.

This is an alternate to number 2: instead of talking about the icons, you can write a small thing inspired by them, like fan-ku or a drabble or even just one line, inspired by the images chosen.

I haven't played with fan-ku before, so for the heck of it...

Poison enters in
Floating off in twilit dreams,
Sweet, succulent lies.

Grey, wet fog hangs low,
Cover for the ravening
Wolf amid the sheep.

Eyes behold in awe
Her dear perfection; his thoughts
Are fatally flawed.

Thinking others’ thoughts
Gets awfully loud sometimes.
I swallowed a bug!

Gosh and golly gee!
Being a demonic snake
Sure would be swell, yup!

You wanna do it, comment.
bookishwench: (Draco not perfect)
For the heck of it (and because I can't seem to get a fic moving again), I thought I'd go back and do the character meme I did for Darla, Dru, Spike, and Angel over again for Draco prior to his first year at Hogwarts, roughly before "Shadowed Life" beings, just for the heck of it. Obviously, some of these change over the years...

Draco character meme )

Oddly, I've found out several things from this. Number 1 is Draco does not like to be quizzed, especially on subjects he's not familiar with. Frankly, I think the character would have blown off the interviewer a while back and gone out to ride his broom or have a toasted cheese sandwich after five or six questions. Number 2, which I already knew, is that he's remarkably ignorant about a lot of things. He's also tending to sound like he's quoting some pureblood rulebook he swallowed at birth, which oddly makes it sound like he's not so much a separate person as a human extension of pureblood mania at this point since he's never known anything else. He's not a comfortable character at this point.

I'm trying to do this stupid Nancy Drew tea that I'm actually performing in a WEEK and I've hit a complete brick wall... cement block, even. Hence, to get the creative juices going, I shall meme. Stolen from [ profile] saraste_impi...

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing. Etc.
Then write your reaction to each pairing (or a snippet of a hypothetical fic featuring each pairing).

madness lies beneath... you've been warned )
bookishwench: (DruSpike theme match)
Stolen from [ profile] ladyoneill, for the heck of it.

A - Alto - the first (and thus far only) fic in the Quartet series, centering on Darla, and I just re-started writing the next chapter the other day, so it's moving again
B - Better Than Ice Cream - one of my few femslash pieces, and in this case non-canon
C - Crossroads - my Gunn fic written entirely without the letter e
D - - Dangers of Desert Driving - Spike and Dru pick up a familiar hitchhiker in the 1950s
E - E-Flat Diminished Ninth - Oz/Willow fic, 1000 words, from my Jewel Box series
F - Four Hours - plane ride back from the Deeper Well, very mild A/S slash
G - Good Riddance - another Jewel Box fic, this one a Cordy POV that I'm pretty happy with, though it's cannonically incorrect
H - Highly Fluffy Story - Lorne. Angel. Pink fuzzy slippers. One of the odder things I've written.
I - It's a Willowful Life - One of my really, really early ones, and my first multi-part fic (it shows)
J - Jayne Eyre - My first non-crossover-with-BTVS Firefly fic; Jayne as Jane Eyre; very, very cracky
K - Kept Hidden - another Jewel Box piece, this one on Willow musing about Tara
L - Leap to Sunnydale - my only time writing Quantum Leap, it's a crossover in which Sam finds himself as Mr. Gordo. No, really.
M - Mirror Images - BtVS/Labyrinth crossover, with Dru and Spike visiting while Sarah is in the maze
N - Night Blooming - Angel's POV as to why there is jasmine in the Hyperion garden
O - Other Side - this series is a take on what happened to Buffy while she was dead. Actually spawned a sequel series, "Home Sweet Limbo" which hasn't happened before or since
P - Plumber's Friend - Just a Spike and Joyce friendship piece from season 4
Q - Quiet Strength - yet another Jewel Box piece (can you tell I did one for each letter of the alphabet?), this one a pre-show Tara
R - Revelations over Breakfast - Buffy and Gunn meet in L.A. the summer after she kills Angel; this was going to be part of a longer series of food-based vignettes that I'm still toying with doing
S - Sunnydale Christmas - there it is, the first fic I ever wrote, in all of its Spike-is-Cockney, getting details wrong, Spike/Buffy kiss for very little reason glory
T - Ten Points to Gryffindor - One of only a few Harry Potter ones I've done, this is Harry/Neville slash written at Meg's request
U - Under African Stars - post season 6 fic written before it was clarified Spike actually wanted his soul back; Tara returns to comfort him
V - Vampily Ever After - this Spike/Angel wedding fic from the Slash Wedding Ficathon hung around for over a year before I could get it completed, making me feel guilty as sin; it turned out okay (thanks in good part to the person who requested it being extremely patient)
W - Within - Kendra's life flashes before her eyes when Dru kills her... except its not exactly her life
X - Xander's Girl - yet another Jewel Box fic, Anya ponders what life would be like if her amulet hadn't been smashed
Y - "You Have, Like, a Gay Man's Taste!" - Angel and Lorne go shopping; Angel is not a good shopper. I actually quite enjoy writing Lorne, now that I think of it.
Z - Zealot - one final Jewel Box fic, this one dealing with Kendra and her confusion over Xander

As I said, the Jewel Box had one fic for each letter of the alphabet (they weren't written in order, though), so I actually got one for everything. I feel oddly accomplished... and nerdy... and dead tired because getting up at 5:45 four days in a row is not my thing.
