I need to get back into writing, the same way I need oxygen to breathe. It's been over a year though and I could do with some prompts.  See my tags for subjects/fandoms/pairings/formats I'm comfortable with, but I'm flexible. Be as specific or as vague as you like.

 

I can't promise to be quick, but this would really help me begin to edge back in...

[livejournal.com profile] thegameison_sh Cycle Four, Challenge One

Title: Bring Them Home
Genre: Angst (mild)
Rating: PG

Disclaimer: The Holmes characters fall in the public domain: This version falls under the creative control of Messers Moffatt and Gatiss, and the BBC. No ownership is implied or inferred. This is done for love only.

Prompt: Undercover
AN: I was in two minds about whether to post this, but I'm being a completist, I guess. I'm really not enamoured of this one - I know what I was trying to do but I didn't really have time to get it right. Next round is already half written though.

Fic masterpost.

Prompt: Phantom touch
Summary: In his dreams, John walks abroad in war zones, a ghost observing the soldiers still there. After a while, he finds that he is not the only one.
AN: The title comes from one of the Wilfred Owen war canon I find most memorable, Dulce et Decorum Est.

Fic masterpost.

The Bullet With Your Name On It )
from [livejournal.com profile] glorfinniel

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn on your music player and put it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabble related to each song that plays. You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble; you start when the song starts, and stop when it's over. No lingering afterwards!
4. Do ten of these, then post them.


My god this was hard work. Fun, though, I highly recommend it. The hardest was the last one, the track only lasts two minutes and eight seconds. These are not drabbles in the strictest sense because I couldn't get them all ironed down to 100 words exactly. Music links are under the cuts too.

Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
Warnings: UST. Drug abuse/self harmful behaviours. Suicidal ideation. (Yes, I listen to cheerful songs.)

These are both wonderful, I am just riding on their coat-tails. It's not as dark as their chapters, but it carries on the story.

Stolen kisses )
I did some writing! It's not cheerful though. I was watching "The Duchess and the Devil" and I though, gee, this isn't nearly angsty enough, so I wrote some suicidal!Archie for the hell of it. Poor Archie, maybe I'll write him some recovery scenes next.
