Midori Days Drabble – United By Fate

by on May.10, 2008, under Uncategorized

As requested by markpoa…this one is not what I speculated I would write about, and it’s a somewhat obscure joke anyway. Well, we’ll see how many people get it. 😛

=====

Miyahara flipped a knife in his hand and ran his fingers over his spiky hair. “Let’s find our leader! For the honor of our school and his older brother, Rin!”

Rin pulled off her motorcycle helmet and smacked Miyahara with it. “I told you not to bother pretending I’m a guy.”

“I’ll come too!” A blond girl pounced on Miyahara, her boxing gloves squishing into his face. “I’ll find Seiji with you!”

“Miyahara, can’t you control your girlfriend?” Rin blinked. “Wait–YOU’RE not supposed to be here!”

“Yotto!” Sakura skidded into place.

=====

Midori squirmed. “No…zzzzz…no more button mashing…”

HP Drabble – Specialties

by on May.10, 2008, under Uncategorized

As requested by vincentursus…upon rereading his idea I think I may have misinterpreted it. However, this story came to mind and I wrote it. If he’s unsatisfied I’ll just have to write another (in my copious spare time). 😉

=====

“What’s your specialty, Harry?” Ron said suddenly.

“Hmmm?” Harry continued wafting the feather overhead.

“I was just thinking,” Ron continued. “Lots of people have specialties, like Neville’s with Herbology.”

“Flying, I suppose,” Harry replied. “Or Charms.” The feather burst into bits and rained down upon them.

“Ron’s good at Charms,” Hermione said, brushing off dust.

“I what?” Ron stared.

“Well, your father’s car, and your brothers’ Wizard Wheezes. It’s in your blood.”

“You’re good at creating things, Hermione,” Harry said. “Like those flames.”

“I never was good at creating stuff,” Ron griped.

Hermione smirked. “Of course not, you’re a boy.”

Tiny fanfics

by on May.07, 2008, under Uncategorized

As propagated by vincentursus, here and here

Every person who wants to gets to request a drabble (real drabble: 100 words exactly) from you. In return, they have to post this in their journal and write a drabble for you. Post all fandoms you’re willing to write for. Your friends can pick a relationship, a story arc, a missing scene, or pretty much anything they want, unless the author has previously mentioned that they will not write it. They comment with what they want, and you write drabbles and post it in your LiveJournal.

Fandoms, let’s see…I make no claim to know every single detail about most of these. Some I’m better at than others. 😉 So if you ask for something really esoteric you may just get a “Well, crap, I have no idea what you’re talking about”…So! In roughly descending order of confidence:

Harry Potter
Negima
Do-Gooders
Revolutionary Girl Utena
Ranma 1/2
Midori Days
Cutey Honey
Aeon Flux
The Prisoner
Robotech
Kaiju Big Battel
Mortal Kombat
Mega Man
R-Type
Ghost Rider
Doctor Who
The Matrix
Spider-Man
Romance of the Three Kingdoms

Note to self: Reveal Cephied sometime.

Harry Potter and the Unmentionable Metaphor

by on Jul.16, 2007, under Uncategorized

So I’m reading an article in the New York Times about the Harry Potter films. The basic point is that the books have delved into more mature topics as they go along, and the films have followed suit…with the directors contributing to the evolution of the series. And then I came across this quote:

“And now, in ‘Order of the Phoenix’, Harry finally discoveres that girls are an altogether different kind of chamber of secrets.”

Oh, my. Maybe it’s just me, but I think that’s a rather unfortunate turn of phrase. It brings such naughty images to mind.

“Hey, baby, want to get out my wand and let me into your chamber of secrets?”

Of course, given the state of HP fanfic, I feel certain I’m not the first to make this “connection”…but it still amuses me.

Fear my brainstorms

by on Jun.15, 2006, under Uncategorized

A gasp, and she awoke.

“Where…where am I?” Darkness surrounded. But not impenetrable, flickers stabbed the corners of her eyes, fleeing when she turned her head.

“You had a good life.” The voice came from all around. Pictures appeared, flaring on a screen, clicking away almost before she could process. “Hard. Difficult at times, but then there was success. Magic? It can turn things around, to, away.”

“Yes,” she said, almost coughing. The voice was so dry. “But I was leaving…why am I here? Who are you?”

“A new world opened up to embrace you, engulf you. All dependent on words. Culminating in this.” One picture stayed.

“I was supposed to be on holiday!”

“You left! After this!” The green and black faces stared at her. “Number Six.”

“I was just taking a break, that’s all, just a quick break from the words, going on vacation…Who are you? What do you want?!?”

“Why did you resign?”
