I did a whole complicated thing here with a random number generator instead of just following the instructions, because I like to make life difficult for myself. But the actual directions for this meme are:

-Write down twenty of your favorite pairings/threesomes/etc.
-Put your media player on shuffle. The number of the song corresponds to the number of the pairing.
-Quote a part of the song that you think has any similarity with the couple.
[Although I may wander off into speculating on the song or some part of the song as a fic prompt, if it doesn't otherwise seem to apply.]

dira: Matt and Emily (from Standoff) spooning under white sheets. (Matt/Emily - Spoons!)
In further adventures of things I honestly have no intention of writing:

It occurred to me this morning that there ought to be, somewhere in fandom, a French Kiss AU (shut up I love that movie).

First I tried it with White Collar, like maybe El is Meg Ryan and obviously Neal is Kevin Kline and Peter is ... Jean Reno? And they all end up together? Hm.

OR, Peter is Meg Ryan and El is Timothy Hutton and the falling in love with a French supermodel part is a wacky misunderstanding of some sort, and they all end up together. That might actually work pretty well.

Anyway, but then I got stuck trying to figure out if that means Neal is French--and, in the Peter-is-Jean-Reno version, is Peter French? Is Peter working for Interpol? Complicated.

And I thought to myself, surely there is another fandom I could smash this concept into and then I thought, OH! YES!


Which inevitably means that SPOCK IS JEAN RENO, and so on... )

The only thing I'm sure of is that you cannot cross the Timothy Huttons: it doesn't work with Leverage at all. (Well, maybe it would sort of work as a trio-only AU with Hardison as Meg Ryan and Parker as Kevin Kline and Eliot as Jean Reno, but--no. No. I'm gonna stop now.)

From [livejournal.com profile] rubynye

- Leave a comment saying "Beam me up Scotty!" [I'll take four] Okay, we've got four aboard, that's it.
- I'll respond by asking you five questions to satisfy my curiosity that are hypothetical and probably related to Star Trek. [Unless they're related to some other fandom we have in common or ... whatever, we'll figure it out.]
- Update your journal with the answers to your questions.
- Include this explanation and offer to ask other people questions.

1) Would you rather work on a starship, a space station, or Memory Alpha?

Okay, so I had to google Memory Alpha to be sure that it was more or less what I thought it was since I had only really run across the Wiki by that name before now (and while working on wikis is cool and everything it is not really in the same class of life opportunity as working on a starship or space station).

That said, yeah, Memory Alpha! Um, especially if it's after they've worked out the everyone-inexplicably-dying-and-data-getting-erased thing. I would especially like to be on the recovery team who has to go in and fix things after the disaster--I like fixing things, and working in libraries gives one a fairly limited scope of things to fix.

2) Do you think tattoo technology will change between now and then, and if so, how?

That does seem somewhat inevitable--I would assume we'll get smart inks that can be reprogrammed after they're implanted, so that you can change/fix/hide a tattoo very easily. Or animate it, if you're into that sort of thing. But there will always be people doing it the barbaric old-fashioned way with no (well, fewer) takebacks just to prove how badass they are.

3) If you could have any one of the characters with names and lines from Star Trek XI to dinner, who'd you invite and what would you feed them?

Wow, now I'm trying to think of who, in the entire movie, I would not get horrendously tongue-tied over and just stare at in embarrassingly mute adoration--oh! oh, I would like to have Amanda Grayson over for dinner. We could eat pizza or I could make her some nice messy lasagna and we could talk about her amazing adventures.

4) In "Sing About Tragedy" you mentioned a contraceptive I've always wanted to ask you more about. So I'm asking. ;)

Oh man, now I have to look and figure out what I said...

Okay, yeah, we'll cut-tag the NC-17 contraceptive description... )

I think my basic thought was, you know, surely in the future they could have gotten the lube + condom step down to one product with both functions? And since nanotechnology is my generation's idea of a sufficiently advanced technology indistinguishable from magic, I just made it nano-machine-carrying smart lube that when, um, activated, serves as a solid-like barrier to pathogens and reproductive material. The more I think about it the more it sounds like the setup for "then the robots got control of Skynet and no one's reproductive organs were ever the same again" but I assume that's just my 20th century technophobia crawling up out of the hindbrain...

5) A Bujold's Nexus question -- do you think you'd want to try being a quaddie, if you could?

Ahahaha, hooboy. I have a lot of difficulty coordinating halves of my body to do anything, so I feel like unless I got some major neurological reworking in the deal I would make a really clumsy quaddie. (That sounds like a Quaddie children's book. The Very Clumsy Quaddie, like the ugly duckling or something.) If I did get some major neurological reworking out of the deal, I suppose that would be a novel experience in several directions at once, so it'd probably be worth giving a whirl. But even assuming a Quaddiespace to hang out in as a Quaddie, it's not a form of bodily transformation that holds any instinctive appeal.

Unlike some of the other options available in the Nexus... *g*
dira: Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier (Amy - TARDIS)
(Icon irrelevant except that Amy is even awesomer than this fic and tomorrow is Saturday which = DOCTORDAY. AGAIN. AND EVERY WEEK FOR MANY WEEKS.)


The awesome fic is Harry Potter fic which I totally assumed, upon reading the title, was Harry Potter fic where Harry is raised by Vulcans, and you know what? I was not entirely wrong. This really is, I think, a lot like the story of what would happen if ten-year-old Spock found out he was, incidentally, also the Boy Who Lived. Or if Jim Kirk had been raised by Sarek and Winona Amanda after losing his parents and then found out he was the Boy Who Lived.

Uh. This was meant to be a fic rec, not a horrible-plot-bunny generator. MOVING ALONG.

This story also, not coincidentally, reminds me a bit of--was it [personal profile] synecdochic's?--story of what SGA might have been like if they had just turned the stupid-generator off. And God knows the world needs more stories of that variety, so here:

Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality

...Yes, it's on ff.net, and yes, it's a WIP, and you know what, I don't care. But for my own fic-following convenience, I have attempted to turn the RSS feed option into a DW feed: [syndicated profile] hpmethods_feed. That should update when the fic updates. The link it serves up goes to the author's profile, where notes for each new chapter will appear, so I think that makes sense.

(The last time I attempted to create a feed of a blog it wound up bringing me every comment posted to that blog and I had to open a service request and let [staff profile] denise sort me out, so now I'm really skittish about feed-creating. But this one seems okay, so far.)

Many many many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] rubynye for her unflagging enthusiasm and encouragement and gently-setting-right-when-I-went-astray and generally helping this story to exist somewhere outside my brain. Thanks also to [personal profile] toft for writing Normal Working Relationship, which finally shook this loose from the spot where it had been stuck in my brain since summer.

And, of course, thanks to [personal profile] iulia for not killing me in my sleep even though this is so, so very not her birthday fic, which, as of today, is now actually overdue instead of just never-going-to-be-finished-in-time. Sorry! I am going to get right on that!

Ahem. Anyway, story!

What Leonard was about to do was undeniably crude--maybe one step up from bleeding to balance the humors--but in this case the science was sound.

a) I finally have a Star Trek icon! It is kind of epic! And is emblematic of my total failure to appreciate Spock properly! Sorry about that, [personal profile] iulia! His paramount importance is implicit in the unified direction of every gaze!

b) I might love @Cudlitz even more than @MishaCollins. His camwhoring is a lot more straightforward. Plus Bonus Ben! Southland style! (NB: I choose to find Mr. Cudlitz's decision to take up ten percent of any given tweet with extraneous punctuation charming. Your mileage may vary. BUT COME ON JUST LOOK AT HIM.) (This represents less than forty-eight hours of tweeting. I didn't even include the ones from stunt school in Canada.)

From [livejournal.com profile] adina_atl, my very favorite meme, because it has totally been more than five minutes since I did this one and all six of my current WIPs are new since then. When you see this, post a little weensy excerpt from as many random works-in-progress as you can find lying around. Who knows? Maybe inspiration will burst forth and do something, um, inspiration-y.

In, uh, approximate order of seniority... Stargate SG-1, Star Trek, and Southland... )
dira: Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier (Default)
a) I just realized that I am either mentally conflating Jim Kirk and Julian Kestrel, or just operating on the assumption that Jim has daddy issues almost as massive as Julian's. That seems less unreasonable than actually conflating them, doesn't it? I guess I could try picturing Chris Pine the next time I reread the books and see what happens...

b) Hooray for short books: I started at lunchtime, and finished over my dinner of pizza (only slightly delayed by the delivery guy trying to find my house on a completely different street), Lauren McLaughlin's Cycler.

OMG SO GOOD. WANT FANFICTION. The sequel, which appears to be horribly confusing Amazon by being called (Re)Cycler, is out next month, but but but. WANT. FIC.

Slightly more specifically: Cycler is the story of seventeen-year-old Jill, who, four days a month, turns into Jack. (For a time, Jill simply became male for four days of the month, but she found the whole thing so traumatizing she learned self-hypnosis to destroy her memories of the experience, and then a whole male personality, Jack, came into existence.) Jill's getting along with her Big Secret pretty well, right up until Jack decides that he would rather have a life of his own in the four days of existence he gets every month than keep on keeping Jill's secret--a life that includes falling in love with Jill's best friend. Meanwhile Jill's searching for a boyfriend of her own in the form of the mysterious loner transfer student in her calc class.

Let me just say: HIJINKS ENSUE.

Spoilerishly specifically: )

c) Misha Collins, seriously, I am going to unfollow your ass if you don't knock it off with the world-domination-via-thirty-consecutive-tweets.
