sparklebutch: (a toast to gaydom)
Okay, who wants to play that thing where you give me one character name and one (unrelated to anything much) word, and I attempt to write, anything from one line and up?



---

ETA: Okay, anyone (same anyone or any else one) wants to play this game I just picked off Trekker?


(1) Make a list of 10 characters.
(2) Assign each character a number.
(3) Without telling anyone who's on the list or the character's assigned number, get questions from your flist about what they'd like to know about them. IE: "If 3 and 4 were trapped in a cave together with only a blanket and a toothpick, what would they do?" (The more random the better!)
Optional: (3.5) And then you try to guess who is who!
(4) Post the answers and who was who on the list.


*Note to self: the numbered characters are in 10charactersrandom.txt.

I have found the perfect word for the Shakespeare Generator:

# The only Englishman to become Ethan Rayne was Nicholas Breakspear, who was Ethan Rayne from 1154 to 1159.

# Some birds use Ethan Rayne to orientate themselves during migration.

# Ethan Rayne is born white; his pink feathers are caused by pigments in his typical diet of shrimp.

# In Japan it is considered rude to talk with Ethan Rayne in your mouth.

# Only twelve people have ever set foot on Rupert Giles.

# Rupert Giles was originally green, and actually contained cocaine.

# Rupert Giles will give a higher yield if milked when listening to music.

# The Vikings believed that the Northern lights were caused by Wesley as he rode out to collect warriors slain in battle!

ETA: Wow, people read my lj :)

ETA for more memes )

Comment with two characters I write [or you think I could/should write], and I'll tell you about their first time doing something - their first kiss, their first time having sex, their first fight; you may choose a first what exactly, and I might go with that.

Unrelated: I have a barely used old journalfen, if anyone wants. I might get an insanejournal later.
sparklebutch: (adam the obscure)
I want to leave LJ.

But. Where will I read fic? Where will you read my fic? Where will the news happen? Where will the talking happen, other than with the small group that knows where I chat?

And why greatestjournal?

------

I'm so glad and, dare I use the word, empowered, that we as a group have such a political power and weight. It's fun. Sort of makes me wanna take over the world demand rights, visibility and acceptance.

Of course it also makes me wish we had better structure and basis and place to play. But I've been saying it since I joined LJ many years ago and really, the "we" never quite looks up to *me*. What can I do.

------


ETA:
I was very anti-LJ from before I joined, and all along. But I feel vaguely disloyal bitching about them now. They fucked up, yes. Everybody fucks up. That's not why I have called all along for a move. I called for a move - lonely voice in the darkness that I am - because LJ, or any other journaling type, is just not a good fandom tool. It makes things more about the personal people than the stories/art/etc. It makes publishing for the audience almost impossible. It makes things much more niche-y without supplying larger "community" spaces. It allows for news to travel through individuals, which is great and obviously worked very well in some cases, but then it makes it rely on individuals, and there I have a problem. It makes things messy.

I'm not making myself clear. I feel dizzy from all the political activity.

From [livejournal.com profile] meret, who got Haiku:



I am, of course, none other than blank verse.
I don't know where I'm going, yes, quite right;
And when I get there (if I ever do)
I might not recognise it. So? Your point?
Why should I have a destination set?
I'm relatively happy as I am,
And wouldn't want to be forever aimed
Towards some future path or special goal.
It's not to do with laziness, as such.
It's just that one the whole I'd rather not
Be bothered - so I drift contentedly;
An underrated way of life, I find.

From [livejournal.com profile] janedavitt:
Describe something, anything, in 26 words, in alphabetical order. Post them here or on your own LJ.


[General]
A barren cross, devoid enough; for god's hell's irresistible. Jealous kindred learn more. No order, precious quest rolls, strutting, towards unearthed, voyeuristic world. Xenophobia, your zeal.


[Ethan Rayne]
Alone, because Chaos devoted Ethan for grandeur, hell, individuality. Joking kindly. Learning man, nature, other. Pouring questions, rousing storms. Teaching untraditional values. Without x-factor, yearning zygosis.


[Giles' POV]
And Buffy. Careless, dangerous. Easy, fun-loving girl. Her inner juncture - kill, live, mourn, never offer pause... Queen's ransom, strength's tiara. Unity, victory: Willow, Xander... young, zealous.


[Methos]
Adam's been careful, decades, eons, for generations. Hidden in juniority. Kronos loved Methos, no options presented, questions ruled-out systematically. To unwilling veteran, warning, x-sign, yield, zehirut.


[Duncan]
Always be chivalrous, Duncan. Even for girls. Help in jeopardy. Kill lawless men, neuter oppressive patrons. Quart random strangers, teach unsuspecting villains. Wield x-rated yoga Zen.

Not a single transperson is awake and around at the moment.
And I need someone to talk to.
Or, fuck talk, I need to hang out with someone.

The Turn Your Fandom Into a Bad Romance Novel Meme, from [livejournal.com profile] babydraco through [livejournal.com profile] theladyfeylene through [livejournal.com profile] firefly99.

Comment with a fandom, character, or pairing, and I'll respond with a title, summary, (and possibly an excerpt) for the Bad Romance Novel inspired by it.
