Fuel Me!  
My writing has been kind of lacking this year, at least in quantity. From being sick at the beginning of the year to losing my muse after that, I’ve been slacking in the word department. I have done a few art projects and also The Great Room Organization, which I have been trying to get done since we moved in here more than 6 years ago. I had two broken legs when we moved, so I didn’t get to do that uncluttering thing that you do when you move, where you throw out a bunch of shit. I finally got really into it this year and actually finished! You don’t even know how open my room looks and how much easier it is to access things and keep the room straightened up now. It feels amazing! But I wasn’t writing at all while I was doing that project.

As it stands, I have to write 12k this month in order to hit 50k by the end of the year. I know I can do it - I’ve done it before - I just have to stay on target. I’m trying - every day I don’t have something on the schedule; appts, PT, social engagement - to write at least 1k. That should even out at about 3k a week. I can totally do that! Already I’ve written 3,300 words, so I’m off to a good start. I am also trying to stay away from my WIPS, because I cleared out all the easy ones and now my folder is just full up of those fics that are dragging out of me for some reason, and I don’t have time to dick around with those if I want to hit 50k. I do have The Nephew’s Christmas fic to write - (I love writing for him, but his fics always have so much action and I hate writing action scenes!) - but I still need some more words. On top of it, it’s almost Christmas and I want to give you all gifts, do something nice for my peeps, cuz you guys rock!

So, you help me meet my word goals by giving me prompts and I’ll gift you with some Christmas fics! Deal? I already have a fic-theme, which will be part of a Christmas series, but I need pairings! So hit me up with a pairing - (romantic or friendship, any fandom, even ones I’m not in, I can handle the challenge!) - and I will write you a Christmas fic. I don’t care if you are one of my best friends or someone I have only spoken to a handful of times or even a lurker! I need the fuel and you deserve the presents! So, give me some pairings, people!

I can totally do this! I am determined to hit that goal!

What a great idea!

Jim/Bones (ST: AOS) - old friends; new lovers

Went with your prompt first and already finished it! Will probably start posting the fics next week! :)

Woo hoo! I can't wait!

I know this feeling really well as my writing brain has been creeping along this year. I'll give you options and you write whatever you want of them.

Charles/Erik-recovery
Hm, any pairing from Leverage and holidays.
dodger_sister: x-men first classdodger_sister on December 10th, 2014 12:57 am (UTC)
Yeah, my muse just felt dried out this year.

Hmmm, Charles/Erik or like, Hardison/Parker. Parker does love her some Christmas but Charles/Erik, man. Will see where the muse takes me!

You can doo eet!
dodger_sister: chuck shurleydodger_sister on December 10th, 2014 12:58 am (UTC)
I think I can, I think I can, I think I can! But I need pairings! Give me a pairing, woman!!! Let me write for you!
Ironlily - Making My Marque: jayandsilentbobdancingvikingprincess on December 10th, 2014 01:18 am (UTC)
Yes, please! Pick whatever you want. Or, y' know, all of them.

Within 'verse:
1. Firefly: Jayne and Zoe friendship
2. Supernatural: Kevin and his Mom, childhood
3. AoS: the team as kids

Or cracky crossovers:
1. Peggy Carter teaches Buffy something awesome
2. Star Lord and Mal hang out in a bar on U-Day :)
3. Spider-Man (any version) and Inara Serra

...actually, I'm also going to save these ideas!

One of these already jumped out at me with a plot! But there is another that I could really run with even though it'll be mega angsty. Hmmmmm. ;)
Ironlily - Making My Marquevikingprincess on December 10th, 2014 03:08 am (UTC)
Work on one until you can't and then the other! :D

Dean & Cas (friends or more, up to you) - Cas discovers Dean really does have a lovely singing voice
dodger_sister: deancasdodger_sister on December 10th, 2014 12:59 am (UTC)
Awww, you prompted me Dean & Cas - that feels like a present for me!!!! <3

I have three (you said you wanted a challenge!):

1. Jared/Jensen - What was supposed to be a simple peck under the misteltoe somehow became a very passionate kiss...catcalling and whistling of friends and family bringing them back to reality :-D

2. Meg/Castiel - How do a sassy demon and an angel for whom today's "Christmas" traditions make no sense (with them being originally a Pagan holiday and all) celebrate Christmas together?

3. Eliot/Hardison - Hardison had only one job: to decorate their place. Eliot took care of everything else, cooking, presents,... So why has Hardison spent the last week sitting behind his dumb computer and why there isn't a sign of decoration anywhere? Not even a tree! Frustrated Eliot, suspicious and distracted Hardison.
Answer: Hardison worked hard to make the most stunning holographic Christmas decoration for their place that will take Eliot's breath away (and probably get him laid). :-D
dodger_sister: castieldodger_sister on December 10th, 2014 01:01 am (UTC)
Holy smokes! All three of these would work with my series theme, now Idk which one to choose! I'm gonna see how much time I have and try to get through more than one! ;)

Aragorn and Faramir friendship.

I'm writing this one tomorrow! I already have it all plotted out in my head, it's gonna be super sweet!
lindahoylandlindahoyland on December 10th, 2014 01:03 am (UTC)
Great! I'm looking forward to it!

Hiiiiiii! I'm on LJ! This is awesome! *twirls around* OMG, and it let me log in so I could comment, this is amazing! (it keeps logging me out, and then I can't remember the password, and then it locks me out for a while, and it's a whole big thing. Sigh.)

This sounds like an amazing challenge, and I can see that you're already ficcing away and that I'm sliiightly late to the party, but I'm gonna prompt you and you can write it if it works for you and you want to and have the time and stuff.

My sentences are getting all run-on-y. Sorry, I'm just happy to be here, commenting on your stuff. :p

PROMPT PART of the ramblings:
Jensen/Misha - <3

I read a qthelights fic with them the other day, and I remember why I love them so much now. I'm even getting some enthusiasm back for SPN in general. I want to rewatch season 1-5 soon. :)
wolfrider89: Em Misha happywolfrider89 on December 20th, 2014 08:05 pm (UTC)
Oh-oh-oh, did I mention that I have about 6000 words of a Parker/Hardison/Eliot fic written? And that I'm writing an original werewolf story? I'm excited!
dodger_sister: misha collinsdodger_sister on December 23rd, 2014 03:03 am (UTC)
a) Hiiiiiiiiii!

b) No, you did NOT tell me about the Leverage OT3 fic! /grabby hands/ Or the original werewolf story? Like with your mythology and whatnot? How cool! (I dreamed last night that Derek Hale and I were soulmates. IDEK, but as usual, I blame you).

c) You are never too late to the party!!! Your fic will not be up until after Christmas, but before New Years, as I have to finish The Nephew's Christmas fic by Christmas Day! I love you, but he is my spoiled boy! I will ABSOLUTELY do you a Jensen/Misha fic though! Oh man, I do NOT write enough of those boys together!

d) qthelights, oh man, LOVE!

e) My sentences are getting all run-on-y. Sorry, I'm just happy to be here, commenting on your stuff. :p


Awww, you are adorbs!

f) MERRY CHRISTMAS/WHATEVER THE HELL ELSE BECAUSE YAY!!!
wolfrider89: D/C <3 :Dwolfrider89 on December 23rd, 2014 12:35 pm (UTC)
b) It's slow going because I have writing spurts and then I leave it for a month or so, but it's getting written, damn it! I've wanted to write an OT3 fic forever, and my rewatch of Leverage just brought that home. It will have Eliot angst, Hardison being hurt and Parker being the BOSS that she is. Nate and Sophie might get to be in at some point, too. ;)

Or the original werewolf story? Like with your mythology and whatnot?
Yes! My own mythology, which, let me tell you, is SO much fun to come up with. My own characters, my own setting, everything. It's fun, fun, fun! :D

Of course it's my fault that you dreamed about Derek. I hapily take the blame!

c) *bounce* Yay, fic! I'm looking forward to it!

d) Right!?

f) MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU TOO! I'm heading to the land of unsure internet access, so I'm just gonna send you Christmas hugs now. *Christmas hugs*
