[personal profile] kayim (or copied from [personal profile] kayim anyway):
Six Sentence Sunday is a writing thing where, on Sunday, you post six sentences from an unfinished work. It can be a new fic, a new chapter of a WIP, or even something you’re not sure you’ll ever post.

Choose an excerpt from any section (and it doesn’t have to be six sentences) and post it, letting people know what it belongs to or indicating that it’s something you’re working on.
from "lady in red (never seen you shine so bright)" (a Miraculous Ladybug fic I hope to finish and post in the next day or two; this excerpt is CN menstruation):
"Well," Chat managed, "at least you know he'll never be too embarrassed to buy you tampons."

"So I'm told." Ladybug buried her face in his neck. "Not tampons, though. Hate tampons. Pads."

She really wanted her money's worth from his promise [not to tease her later], didn't she? "Aren't tampons supposed to be better for athletic activity, or something? And as often as we're bouncing around Paris..."

"Yes. They are. I hate them." She bit off each syllable.

"Sorry, sorry!" Chat might have held up surrender hands, if she weren't still in his lap. "I didn't realize it's a sore subject."

Ladybug deliberately took a calming breath. "It's fine. You're fine, you didn't know, and it's worth thinking about." She moved her hand down to his heart. "I wasn't regular before. I'm still not. Tikki says I'm not eating right, but we haven't found 'right' yet. It might just be not enough for how active I am—a lot of teen athletes who should get periods don't, and that's why—but I eat everything in sight. So Tikki thinks I should be looking for tasty human-edible bugs or flowers, because for Miraculous wielders the weirdness never stops. [...] Anyway, that all means my period is not a monthly problem. And in the suit, it is never a problem. Tikki does something about it. I have not asked what, because I don't want to know. And the rest of the time, pads work just fine."

"Noted!" Chat said, and Ladybug snickered. "Moving on!"

Give me the title of a hypothetical fic (and fandom/characters/pairing if you like, or tell me to go original if you are inclined) and I will:
-tell you what it's about
-recall my favorite or least favorite parts
-possibly attempt to write an excerpt of it
I am probably only working in Miraculous Ladybug.

Drop one of these bad boys in a comment and I will respond, without editing:
  • FIRST — the first two sentences of my current project
  • LAST — the most recently written two sentences of my current project
  • NEXT — the next line. meaning i will finish the sentence I’m on and write a new one, which you’ll get.
  • [insert prompt here] — you post a prompt, and i’ll write three sentences based on that prompt, set in the same time/setting as my current project
  • THE END — i’ll make up an ending, or post the ending if i’ve written it
  • BEFORE THE BEGINNING — three sentences (or more) about something that happened before the plot of my current project
  • POV — something that’s already happened, retold from another character’s perspective

Go to page 7 of your WIP, go to the seventh line, and share seven sentences. Then tag 7 people who you know will see this to do the same.

From the one I was writing on yesterday:
Marinette pulled away from him and got slowly to her feet. "What am I supposed to call you?" she asked, looking over his brick-red chain mail tunic and the rapier in his other hand.

He grinned up at her, wide and Chat-bright, and winked. "Why, I'm your Chevalier, of course."

And there was a flat silver ring in her hand.

Marinette stormed around Mme. Bustier's desk and threw herself down, opening her purse to pull out her phone and drop in the ring and scritch Tikki's worried brow before snapping the purse closed again. "Peachy."
And from my NaNo:
One moment, I was Chat Noir, watching my Lady toss two black-spotted pieces of red wishbone in the air. The next—

Being swept up in the torrent of miraculous ladybugs didn't usually feel like jumping into a bonfire. And being released didn't usually feel so like the warmth of a fireplace and the laughter of friends.

—Speaking of friends.

"Marinette?" asked Ladybug, glancing at my ladybug-brought friend with wide eyes and creased brow, and something about her tone of voice—

"Adrien?" squawked—my own voice, as I'd heard it on recordings. Chat Noir's voice, coming from a familiar face wearing Chat Noir's mask, behind which those absurdly green eyes darted between Ladybug and Marinette and me and—I turned my head—there was no mistaking the face I saw in the mirror every day.
Tag yourself!

1. What do you wish more people understood about you?

Listen, neurotypicals, I can communicate directly, explicitly, and to the point, and you can do me the courtesy of assuming that if I did not say it then I did not mean it. Or I can layer in implications for you to treasure hunt for, and you can do me the courtesy of not insisting that I communicate directly, explicitly, and to the point. Fucking PICK ONE.

2. In the unlikely event you had the option to pass a new law, what would you change?

Oh there are approximately a million things. Two examples from today:

* Require "Mx." be provided as an option anywhere that provides "Ms." and "Mr." as options (in other news, fuck "Dr Ms." as an option altogether, especially when juxtaposed with "Dr."!)
* Mandatory K-12 education standards to include basic food safety

3. What have you made that you're most proud of?

Lately? chart the valley of your dreams Miraculous Ladybug ficverse.

4. What does your ideal living space look like?

Consistently cleaner than I personally have spoons to make it (woe is me, etc).

5. Do you have an animal you identify with, in the manner of a daemon / patronus or similar?

[personal profile] umadoshi is wondering: "why the difference [between DW and LJ comms' activity levels]?" and "what (if anything) can maybe be done to change that?"

So I have a challenge for you:

Choose three Dreamwidth communities you subscribe to that you want to see more active. Post to each of your chosen comms this week.

Repeat challenge as you feel necessary :)

Okay, folks. As April first is Saturday, I hereby pledge not to post any pranks, jokes, false links, or screamers. Nothing originating on this blog will be a prank or deliberately incorrect. If I re-post or link to other people’s pranks, which I may, they will be clearly marked so you don't click on them and think they're real.

No direct links to howling horribleness, and no 'alternative facts', will ever purposefully appear on this blog. If one does, it's a hack or something changed, or I messed up; please let me know immediately so I can fix it.

Stay safe out there, my dears! We non-pranksters have got your back.

Which fictional setting would you put me in, and what sort of role would I play there?

...

*looks at phone*

*looks at phone call section of todo list*

I DON'T WANT TO YOU CAN'T MAKE ME

...the accumulated weight of "PHONE CALLS SCARY I DON'T WANT TO" is probably worse than making any of the actual phone calls and yet it is the reason I can't make any of the actual phone calls

Various friends have done this and I liked the idea: what should be my new year resolutions? Feel free to suggest anything at all, serious or silly, and I'll pick some I like.

Ask me anything!

I am trying to work less hard, in order to save my hands. (Manager is okay with this, but I apologized anyway.) However, I can't seem to work less fast. Therefore! To distract me from work!

(Tablet typing is not a problem like keyboard typing is a problem, I think. Different hand motions.)

Ask me anything! I can't think offhand of any topics I'm placing off limits, but if you hit one I'll decline to answer in full or at all as appropriate.

Hit me! :)

In comments, place a single word. It can be any part of the language (noun, verb, adjective, adverb, etc).

In return, I'll free write something based on that word. Might be fic, might be rambling.

1. There are people on my reading list that I don't know very well. Want to trade information? You can ask me anything you want, as long as I get to ask you a question in return.

2. Music time! Give me a prompt of any kind -- a word, a mood, a kind of music, a character/fandom, an original writing thing, whatever random thing pops into your head -- and I will give you a 3-song playlist.

Day 01

In your own space, talk about why you are doing the Fandom Snowflake Challenge? What drew you to it as a participant? What do you hope to accomplish by doing these challenges? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I want to feel more of a connection with fandom. I haven't been feeling fannish for months and that's not good.


Day 2

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.


Hmmm. Specifically things we're afraid to ask for? There isn't much I'm afraid to ask for...

1) All the genderswap AUs. Not just Rule 63, where a canonically cis man-or-woman becomes a cis the-other-one. Genderswaps where canonically cis characters are trans of the same gender (so for instance cis woman to trans woman). Genderswaps where canonically cis characters are trans of the same assigned-at-birth gender (so for instance cis man to trans woman or genderqueer/nonbinary individual). Genderswaps where about half of the canonical characters are Rule 63'd (or otherwise transmogrified), not just one or two prominent characters. ALL THE GENDERSWAPS. (Except if you take a canonically trans character and make them cis, I will be most displeased.)

2) All the racebending AUs. Or rather, all the racebending AUs that take canonically white characters and make them people of color. Or otherwise take people of the locally dominant ethnicity and make them not—so making Bakura Ryou of Yu-Gi-Oh! a white Brit instead of Japanese would be legit. (Black Brit or Indian Brit would be more interesting, mind you.)

3) I don't think there's a term for this, but all the AUs where a canonically abled character is disabled. Somebody's got asthma. Somebody needs a wheelchair. Somebody's got epic anxiety. Yadda.


Day 03

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

From [personal profile] naraht (and I'm not tagging anyone either):

Rules: go to page 7 of your WIP, skip to the 7th line, share 7 sentences, and tag 7 more writers to continue the challenge.

But first I have to paginate the thing, because Scrivener doesn't so much do with pages...
Yuuki finally managed to move her head, only to see Jounouchi and Honda on the ground and Ushio walking away—but in her hand lay the last piece of the puzzle, and the puzzle itself was in her backpack, only a few tens of centimeters out of arm's reach.

She had to solve the puzzle. Only a few more centimeters. Her wish would come true when she solved the puzzle. Only a little farther—

The puzzle piece snicked into place.

A golden glow, and the world fell away.
