Multi-Fandom Drabble Tree

Last time we did this it was both super fun and super helpful, so without further adieu -

How this works: below is a drabble. To participate, reply to this post with another drabble containing a sentence or phrase from the original. Please leave the words you took on the subject line, as well as the fandom in parentheses. (If no fandom/any fandom, just write "any"). The next person continues the trend, taking a sentence or phrase from any of the existing drabbles and creating their own as a reply.

You can draw from any drabble as many times as you want. It's okay to change the tense or the POV of the bit you've taken if you need to for it to make sense.

Also, all fandoms are welcome, including rpf, etc. Because of that, you can also substitute any character name for any other character name.

And, of course, make sure to add any trigger warnings if necessary.

The storm picks up, rattling the windows, and his hand tightens in hers. She smiles at him, pretending there isn't a gun in her hand, that he’s enough to keep her safe. They only have a few minutes left. She wants to tell him the truth, but the words catch in her throat. She doesn’t know how to say goodbye. The roof is leaking; the volume on the TV is turned low. This was supposed to be a weekend in the woods—a chance for them to start over. His lips press against her neck, and he holds on tight.

(no subject)

Sherlock isn’t happy with being short.

“Shorter,” John corrects in Sherlock’s voice, Sherlock’s lips twitching up in a smile.

Sherlock forces John’s lips into a scowl John’s never seen the likes of on his own face.

“I will remedy this,” Sherlock growls.

John just leans in to his oh-so-attractive face, enjoying the height advantage for a change.

“Oh Sherlock,” he says, sure that the grin on the face he wears must look odd indeed, “Surely you must bow to the great bloody wisdom of myself, Sherlock Holmes?”

Sherlock bares John’s teeth, and John just laughs and laughs and pulls him in closer. He knows Sherlock will solve it (Sherlock can bloody well solve anything) but for the moment, he’s more intrigued with the way his own mouth will taste against the one he wears.

Sherlock melts against him, his fingers curling into the jacket (his) that John’s wearing.

“Cor,” Sherlock says when they finally pull back, eyes twinkling a little as he imitates John, “Knew I’d be a bloody good kisser.”

2012 Television Goals~

Okay, these are the shows I'm going to (try) to watch this year:

- Sanctuary
- Leverage
- Downton Abbey
- Justified
- Mad Men
- The Good Wife
- Friday Night Lights
- Cougar Town
- Game of Thrones
- Generation Kill
- Sherlock Holmes (the old school one)
- Luther
- Plus I really really want to watch Midsomer Murders from beginning to current, in order. But that's more casual viewing, tbh.


a) Other than watching Sanctuary first, I don't have really any specific order to watch them in,
b) Are any of you planning on watching any of these this year? Because while watching them together might not always work, watching them at the same time means we could talk about them!,
c) Am I missing anything?,
d) I'm never going to be able to watch all of these this year, but OH WELL.

come run away with me, we'll follow the stretch of the sea

There's a writing commune in my head.

There's a stretch of homes, and there's thick green grass. It's a little like the Shire, in my mind. There's apple trees, and a vegetable garden. Some people sit outside on benches and knit, and some go down to the lake and swim, and there are tall trees to climb and a horizon you can see. Conversations pick up halfway through, and you can talk characterization and verb tenses and the way words have torn your heart open. You can linger on vowels and stretch out syllables in the night air, and when you lie awake at three a.m. there is always someone else to talk to.

There are tents outside, if you want to be alone, and impromptu blanket forts and slumber parties in living rooms if you want company.

There is always someone to proofread what you've written. There is always someone to tell you to stop procrastinating.

When the country air feels stifling, you can take your car and steal a friend and drive to the city; you can stand amongst tall buildings until you can feel your heart slow, and soak in a Starbucks coffee - you can stay away for hours or days or longer. You always return.

You can spend your day online, until someone drags you to dinner and reminds you to eat, and then leaves all the dishes for you, because honestly, it was your turn to do them at lunch, and just because you were reading a fic doesn't mean you get to get out of everything.

Sometimes there's drabble parties down by the water, with the people that prefer to stay dry volunteering to write down the collective scraps of shouted words. Very rarely does something beautiful arrive from these parties (although it has happened), but afterwards pen finds paper easier, and often with a smile.

There's far too many movies and dvds and books, collectively, and you're always missing at least three things, and going door to door demanding it be returned. Sometimes you wonder why you're here, and then, after you've locked yourself in your car and driven down the road to cool down, a laughing group of gorgeous people arrive with cookies and wine and promises to write you fic, and you follow them because they make you better than you are and like you more than you deserve, because you're happier than maybe you've ever been, and because you love them dearly, each and every awful one of them.

i face the horizon everywhere i go; or, WORDS

a) LOVE MEME, if thou art so inclined ♥

b) WORDS

The thing about surrounding yourself with talented writers is that it can be intimidating. Now, I think I've improved leaps and bounds in the last few years. I think I've found my voice as a writer and I think I've matured as a writer. At the same time, though, I can't deny that being around people cleverer and more talented than I am has on occasion led me to think more about how my story would be received rather than about my enjoyment in writing it.

German Study Group

Okay, so, I've been planning on learning German for ages upon ages. Pretty much ever since I finished my last German class ~3 years ago, realized I knew hardly anything, and also realized that I simply don't learn languages well in a classroom setting. Probably because I'm lazy, but hey.

SO.

Now that I'm once again considering trying to start, I thought it could be fun to have study buddies. If people are interested, basically:

- We'd use Rosetta Stone (if you don't have it, I'll ~fix that), and I don't recall how long/complex the lessons are, but it wouldn't be super-intensive because a) no one has time for that, and b) I didn't learned anything when it was super-intensive, so. I'm thinking maybe two-three lessons a week? Or so? (We'll figure that out later.) I just don't want it to turn into awful work that I hate.

- I, um, was already looking for German kids shows/kids shows dubbed in German, because that sort of learning makes me happy.

- Mostly just having other people work for the same goal at the the same pace tends to be enormously helpful, and will hopefully stop me from giving up in defeat two days after starting. And we can IM and email each other and practice that way, too, which is good!
.
Lastly, I honestly remember crap, and while I'm sure some of it will come back to me, I fully intend on starting from the beginning. If you don't need to start from the beginning, you can still just chill and talk to people, and if you have no experience at all, you can start with me!

This isn't something I plan on starting right away, I was thinking in a couple of weeks. (And am completely open to suggestions.)

(Mostly I'm just throwing this up because a few people have said they're not sure if they could keep up, and I'm like lol, I would have trouble keeping up with German babies, and they're just speaking baby talk, so that's not an issue.)
