The first ten people to comment get to request that I write a drabble. Any pairing/character of their choosing (in a fandom I'm familiar with).

In return, they have to post this in their journal. (if you feel like it, guys, no pressure) Share the love!
===============
For reference, I use the strict definition of drabble -- 100 words. If the prompt really grabs me, I might do a double-drabble -- 200 words.

I will write SOMETHING this week, dammit.

Prompt me. I need it.

I am trying to get back into the writing frame of mind, so I can finish some of my WIPs. But it's difficult because I don't feel like combing through [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic or the various kink memes I know of... not that I'd be anything but an anonthor for kink meme replies.

I'm pretty sure y'all know my fandoms already.

ETA2: Extra very important word added to #19 for clarity. The TV Tropes page doesn't have it, but it's kinda needed.

ETA: Holy crap I was so dumb when writing up the names in this.

Concept taken from [livejournal.com profile] ladydragonryder, but the rules/explanation were completely re-written by me because... *covers face with left hand and points to icon with her right*

Pick 20 examples of pop culture entertainment (anime, comics, films, literature, live action tv, music, theatre, webcomics, web original, or western animation) and post their summaries from TV Tropes: Better Than It Sounds. Have your friends guess what each one is. To those who participate: NO CHEATING!

There was at least one where I snipped off the end bit, which didn't have anything to do with describing the series itself and would have been a dead giveaway for what I was talking about. I managed to restrain my inner editor enough that I haven't fixed some spelling errors otherwise.

A few things to keep in mind regarding these guessing games when played on my LJ:
+ You win points for each correct guess. So far, the only thing points get you is bragging rights, but I might be persuaded to write fic or something.
+ You can guess for any numbered item that hasn't be crossed out.
+ Everyone who guesses something correctly wins a point. If five people say that "Summary number 23 is obviously for 'The Number 23'," or what have you, each of those five people get a point for that.


1. To get control of her father's company back from a Corrupt Corporate Executive, a Mad Scientists Beautiful Daughter becomes a pink-haired Idol Singer, and her younger biological and adopted sisters become her back-up band. They all deal with a crush from the Idol Singer's boyfriend, the annoying punk band that the Corrupt Corporate Executive hired, and everyone's gigantic crazy hair. I was expecting [livejournal.com profile] denisia to get this one, but [livejournal.com profile] aaronunicorn also knowing it was a bit of a surprise. JEM!

2. Anonymous child soldiers battle tyrants and criminals on a shoestring budget.

3. A nerd and a popular guy try to commit the perfect murder. They fail. Miserably. There's enough homoerotic tension to make up for it. I knew I could count on [livejournal.com profile] relentlessfire to correctly identify Murder by Numbers.

4. A guy and his best friend bond over practical jokes and extreme sports. They conflict over a Love Triangle. Girl uses cancer to get the attention of her Love Interest.

5. A Fiery Redhead Action Girl, her blonde male sidekick, and a Voice With An Internet Connection fight a hot woman with long black hair. (Sorry, Aaron, it's not what you think.)

6. Small, ragtag band of heroes search the oceans for ancient treasures that are needed to stop an all-consuming black sludge from devouring the world. [livejournal.com profile] aaronunicorn gets this one right! It's the Pirates of Dark Water!

7. A group of oddball college graduates go to New York to bring their college stage play to Broadway. [livejournal.com profile] denisia's and [livejournal.com profile] aaronunicorn's Henson-sensors can't be fooled by this bland-sounding summary! They know that The Muppets Take Manhattan!

8. A confused young man starts to understand his life for the first time after he has an operation, only to have it slip away from him after his favorite animal dies.

9. Problems befall a pair of unicorns. Tom Cruise saves them and a princess from Tim Curry. Just about everybody ([livejournal.com profile] seeksadventure; [livejournal.com profile] aaronunicorn; [livejournal.com profile] ladydragonryder) knows Legend!

10. Smartass kid neglects his education, shamelessly manipulates the sympathy of his parents and those around him and, for his own self-gratification, triggers a series of events that results in the destruction of his best friend's father's priceless car. Without remorse. Despite this, everyone loves him. [livejournal.com profile] seeksadventure, [livejournal.com profile] aaronunicorn, and [livejournal.com profile] denisia know their eighties hit comedies when they hear about 'em. Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

11. Nice dead people try to scare living people from a house. Also, a decomposing pervert with an identity crisis falls madly in love with a teenage girl and tries to marry her. This time, everyone who guessed ([livejournal.com profile] seeksadventure, [livejournal.com profile] ladydragonryder, [livejournal.com profile] aaronunicorn, and [livejournal.com profile] denisia) was right -- it's Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetle-- *everyone tackles Dani to shut her up*

12. The world will be saved by a hot girl with weird name. With the assistance of a cab driver and a cross-dressing radio disc jockey. My Tech Support team ([livejournal.com profile] ladydragonryder, [livejournal.com profile] aaronunicorn) has got my back, they know this film is The Fifth Element.

13. Bicycle courier finds himself on the run from extremely ticked-off urbanites. He meets up with a woman keen on hacking people to death with a machete, a slightly mad taxi driver, and his quiet daughter, who take him on a road trip through the countryside. The four encounter a small group of soldiers living in a country mansion who intend to restart the human race. One of them wears a pink apron. [livejournal.com profile] seeksadventure and [livejournal.com profile] aaronunicorn know their horror...this is 28 Days Later.

14. Thanks to a discontinued sports car, a boy nearly commits incest with his mother after teaching his father how to use violence. All their lives improve as a result. Great Scott! This misleading (yet entirely true) summary is for Back to the Future, as [livejournal.com profile] seeksadventure, [livejournal.com profile] ladydragonryder, and [livejournal.com profile] aaronunicorn well know.

15. A boy and his talking stuffed animal travel through time and discuss politics. [livejournal.com profile] seeksadventure and [livejournal.com profile] aaronunicorn score yet again by correctly identifying Calvin and Hobbes!

16. Two brothers drive an RV to a strip club and encounter the supernatural. [livejournal.com profile] seeksadventure and [livejournal.com profile] aaronunicorn are on a roll! They both know this is From Dusk Til Dawn.

17. An angry black kid with a huge afro bitches about the current black celebrities. Also his brother is an 8-year-old gangsta. [livejournal.com profile] seeksadventure, [livejournal.com profile] aaronunicorn, and [livejournal.com profile] denisia know their angry black kid comic strips...or rather, strip. The Boondocks it is!

18. Coming of age / werewolf drama. Morbid friendless sisters feature in a study of the similarity between premenstrual tension and uncontrollably violent lycanthropic bloodlust. Werewolf fan [livejournal.com profile] seeksadventure knows that this is Ginger Snaps. And [livejournal.com profile] aaronunicorn, who seems to just be scary good at this kind of thing, also gets a point!

19. A book series about two teenage brothers and their father. They Fight Crime.

20. Good-looking but sleazy Elvis impersonator who lives with his mother gets into weird hijinks and gets beat up by nearly every woman he meets. This is 'Johnny Bravo' and clearly, [livejournal.com profile] aaronunicorn is a robot sent back in time to kill Sarah Connor, but he got distracted by all the delicious pop culture we have and dedicated his futuristic processor to the pursuit of entertainment instead of homocide. Go, Aaron!

from someone not on my friends list because I'm a creepy wanderer sometimes on LJ...

Respond with a character you know I like, any fandom, and then pick a letter a-h and I'll answer that with the information that corresponds to that letter.

(a) Two facts about them from my personal canon/fanon
(b) a reason he/she sucks
(c) a reason he/she is awesome
(d) three things that never happened to that character
(e) three people that character never fell in love with and why.
(f) two things that character regrets
(g) two people the character secretly crushes (or crushed) on
(h) One important event from their childhood.


ETA: M'kay, because Q is awesome, I have decided that this meme will be a comment-fic meme now. That means that as long as I can come up with a story of less than 4300 characters, the fic will be in a single comment. ^_^
