The first ten people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing. In return, they have to post this in their journal.

Open to all. Hopefully, this will help me kick the writer's block that has settled down inside my head. I will write the fandoms that I have listed as my interests in my profile. You can write a prompt if you want to, as it'll be very helpful for me if they are from the anime / manga fandoms. Obviously, I will be most pleased if you chose from one of the British TV shows. :) You can even ask for semi smut if you want to, I currently reside in the grey area between T(eenager) and M(ature). [In other words timelady2, I will not write full blown smut. Yet.]

I want to be mean and say 06seconds_left is not allowed to request one until she writes the Good Omens drabble I ask for, but I won't. :D And do please be kind and patient, I might take a while. It's been months since I wrote Walk in on Me Chapter 1 and Chapter 2.

Lifted from lizzy_copycat . Apparently, it's the BBC's Top 100, from 2003. Which I don't care, because it means Stephenie Meyer's trite will not be on the list. Although it means Dan Brown isn't on here either, and I'm still undecided whether he's a genius or just someone banking on conspiracy theories to sell. At least his mythology doesn't involve any glittery, sparkling immortals. Blergh. -.-

I've realised that there are books which I have half-read on this list, and also some that I have yet to read but want to for a long time. Thus, apart from the obvious [x] for the read ones, italics will be for those which I have read partially and bold would be the one that's definitely on my 'need to read' list.

:'D I've fully read 25 books. That was more than I expected. That's because they've got a lot of Harry Potter and Roald Dahl.
Also I really need to finish 10 partially read books. And I need to go on a book buying spree for 17 titles.

*sees her account balance and cries*

But, I can smugly say I am not your typical Malaysian who reads only two books a year. (Pathetic.)

And then DalekTube decides to be mean. First, a copyright claim for using Anyone Else But You that results in the audio being muted. So I spent a whole morning searching for an alternative song that fits the video, since I created the video around the music, not the other way round. I'm quite satisfied with the end result, even though I'm still irked. Sigh.


About 3 more hours until the new eppie of Silent Witness airs. Harry's going to be mean to Nikki though, and I do not approve. Why is Harry having a personality transplant again? I mean, his personality was excusable in Series 6, but to bring back the fact that he likes to sleep with recently widowed women annoys me. I don't want to hate Harry, but lizzy_copycat might be just right in saying the staunch supporter of Harry (aka me) starts wavering with this blatant stupidity of his. :|

In other words, there better be a lot of UST in Voids tonight, apart from Harry being an arse towards Nikki and referencing something to Jane Eyre which I did not quite catch in the trailer.

Gotten this from 06seconds_left .

Your result for The Fan Fiction Personality Test ...

The Shipper
Slash, pairings and Playboy plot bunnies.

You are very likely female, and you very likely examine characters for their "slashability". Though you insist that your stories don't circle around love and sex between attractive characters, they do.

It is also likely familiar to you that at a certain point in your story, a character (or more) discovers that he (and rarely even she) is gay, and starts a relationship with another character.

Your fanfiction meets the taste of many, especially if your pairing happens to be between two attractive males that are straight in canon.

You probably wrote something about Harry Potter falling in love with Draco Malfoy, Legolas starting a secret romance with Aragorn or Obi Wan being a sex sklave of Han Solo. If not, you probably still consider to do it.


How true. I mean, Harry/Nikki should be TRUFAX by now. :| Oh, slash/yaoi talk! *cough*Harry/Leo*cough*Doctor/Master*cough* I mean, I haven't written any, but it doesn't mean it doesn't exists in my head. :DDD

Unfortunately, I only write het at the moment. Clean het. Can't say the same for my mind though.

And I made some icons of Harry since it's the actor's (Tom Ward) birthday on the 9th.

Icons behind cutCollapse )
