Kindle worlds: don't even sweat it, y'all. It's not replacing fanfic and it never will, because it is necessarily build on two concepts that run completely counter to fandom culture: rules and money.

Meanwhile, I have 28 works on AO3. Comment with a number between 1 and 28 and I will tell you what I currently like about that work!

Here are the first lines from my 21 most recent stories. Since I'm on the slow side, this amounts to over 75% of my entire body of work, covering a period of over five years. It's interesting to look at your stories this way; I usually end up cutting so much "prewriting" and tinkering with the beginning point until so late in the game that I don't end up spending a lot of time crafting the perfect first line, so I didn't remember most of them. I was pleasantly surprised with some of them, while others work better in context.

Pick up the nearest book to you. Turn to page 45. The first complete sentence describes your sex life in 2012.
Figured this was going to be creepy because, as it happened, the nearest nonkindle physical book to me was Friends Forever #1: Kristy's Big News, but it's actually fine: "On a small table, a cluster of cacti of every shape and color bristled."

I don't know how to interpret that.

Music meme

I've done this before, but not on this journal! (I don't think!) Anyway, it's going around again, like a bad cold. I mean this in the nicest possible way. Some of my best friends are bad colds.

1. Put your music player of choice on shuffle
2. Post the first line to the first 32 songs that come up
3. Let people identify the song!

Hint: most of the my music comes from (1) musicals (2) Rock Band (3) slashvids I have seen )

I don't have 25 fics (and if my recent drought keeps up, I never will! but, seriously, I am writing; I've just been busy with some original type stuff lately. I know, lame. But I am almost certain I'll get back to fanfic when I'm done with that), but I wanted to do the meme where you list the first line of your last 25 fics and try to find a pattern. So here are my 8. (I actually have ten but one is a series of lists so it doesn't really have first line per se and one was sort of a "training wheels" fic and I generally omit it plus it is easier to do percentages from 8 than 9.)

The first lines )

So. Three dialogue, and one note, which I guess counts as dialogue. Of the remaining four, three start with someone's first name (sorry, forgot "Sandburg" isn't a first name). I don't know what, if anything, that says about me as a person. I am struck by the way, in many cases, the first sentence would have been a better teaser/summary line than whatever I ended up choosing from the middle. In at least one case, the first line is better than the rest of the story!

The "What were you doing this day in history?" meme won't mean much for this journal, as it's only about a year old. I didn't post last July 4, but on July 3, 2007 I was posting recaps for TS 3x10 and 3x11. (I started recapping with 3x01, so these are quite early. They were the first ones with screencaps!) I had just gotten my hands on the post-s1 episodes; at that point, I had not yet even seen most of TS. From vids I was under the misapprehension that Jim and Blair kissed a lot.

I don't know how I'm going to manage to be a Chicago cop in Washington D.C. but I imagine there will be Die Hard style partings and reunions involved.

Haiku2 for zelempa
each other knowing
sidelong glances and then they make
out with other boys
Created by Grahame

I love this thingy, which markov-generates a haiku based on your blog content, and I was excited to play with it again after posting a bunch more fic, but it was down. But now it's back!

Great art form: automatically generated haiku which tell complete slash stories )

Meme from [livejournal.com profile] sallymn...

Make up your own list of 15 characters before you read the questions.

I started with the obvious )

Five of the movies were guessed. Additional quotes from the unguessed items have been added, if you're interested! (Some of them may be unhelpful.)

This meme I got from [livejournal.com profile] lamardeuse is remarkably similar to a game I played with my family recently (in fact, two of the quotes from lamadeuse's list were used in that very game.)

1. Pick 15 of your favourite movies.
2. Go to IMDb, and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions.

a complete grab bag of movies )

ETA: An additional quote from the same movie has been added to unguessed items!

My Interests Collage! )

Many of these are apt (the Brideshead and TS pictures particularly), but some I do not understand. (Bear in mind that ALL of my listed interests are pairings.) I like how for Sheppard/McKay, I got a cover of a [livejournal.com profile] seperis story.

Forward from a non-slashy friend, but since it's fannish, and I picked all (mostly) slashy shows, I'll post it here.

Pick five series and then answer the questions. Don't look at the questions before you choose!

1. Stargate: Atlantis
2. The Sentinel
3. Xena
4. Due South
5. Scrubs
