Dear Bioware,

Why is it that, on planets with hostile environments that will melt armour in under a minute, Getherton G. MacGeth of Gethsville, Gethland, is completely untroubled by the temperature?1

Similarly, the agents of the evil corporation's supersecret research department don't seem to freeze to death waiting to defend the supersecret science facility, and the sudden unexpected space pirates appear not to need helmets on a planet with no atmosphere.

Slightly puzzled,
[ profile] active_apathy,

And now, because I have again attacked with the prompt 'cinnamon', a meme from [ profile] maggiebloome:

The first TEN (10)3 people4 to comment in this post get to request a drabble or a poem or something of any pairing/character/misc of their choosing5 from me6. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

  1. I am assuming that this is not, in fact, another part of the Checkhov's Gun Arsenal that is the rest of the game. It's almost like they really, really want to join Checkhov's NRA.
  2. There needs to be a name for linking people to tvtropes. Troperolling, perhaps? Except that the trope link tends to be entirely relevant, as are the next seventy-four tabs that you will open.
  3. Not necessarily limited to TEN (10).
  4. Necessarily limited to people.
  5. Choosing things I know something about may yield better results.
  6. I shall endeavour to be less flakesome this time.

Truly evil trope enabling would mean linking to an article like this. :D

Would you perhaps prefer some hot lego? Or maybe something from Spicks & Specks?

I had most of this planned out in the shower; it's just taken, um, four hours to squish it into a hundred words. :)


Three more until she'd have to pour it out; more risked spillage as she emptied it.


The dripping had become her sole sense of time; one to a heartbeat, five to a breath, ninety-four thousand to fill the bowl again.


Once, she'd had songs and poetry; now faded, tattered memories. She'd had sons, one made a wolf, the other's entrails turned to iron, binding her husband.


Loki. All she had left. The venom splashed over her fingers, spilt in her haste to again shield him from the serpent.


And so it would be, until Ragnarök.

What's the etiquette if you flail at two people? Do I need to bounce my number up to twenty?

I don't believe so? If [ profile] packbat.has_posted(meme) returns the value true, the condition should be fulfilled for both.

...not that I planned to enforce it anyway.

Then a drabble: Richard Castle on TVTropes.

Whahey, I get a freebie cos I already posted it, right? :P

Give me a poem River Tam would write. About the black, or a nightmare, or how Jayne is a doodyhead, or something.

Oh, that's evil; I am not much proficient with poesy, whereas River couldn't help but be. Is it too late to make you write a sestina about cinnamon?

(And yet I shall try.)

...I'll have a go if you do :P if it proves too difficult, you could just write a story about River writing a poem, and I could just write a poem that started life as a sestina :P

Very well, I accept! (Accept what?) :D
