dbskyler: (Sarah from Hand of Fear)
A long time ago, I started working on a prompt table from the challenge community [profile] 50ficlets. While I never came close to doing 50, I did write some ficlets, and kept my claim open in the hope that I would be inspired to write more.

Then just a few days ago, I decided to take a whack at another prompt. Ironically, at almost the same time, the [profile] 50ficlets community announced that they are shutting down. However, the mod said that people are welcome to still use the prompt tables, so here is my latest ficlet. Who knows -- now that I definitely don't have to do all 50, maybe I'll even keep going?

I've been trying to work on my WIP, but it is dead in the water again. On the other hand, in the course of not working on said WIP, I found myself playing around with another fic idea that I've had for a few months, and I ended up writing out the whole thing last night. It is (currently) coming in at slightly under 1,000 words, which is actually a good thing as it is also inspired by a [livejournal.com profile] 50ficlets prompt. Except, remember how I was saying that I was going to try to make those ficlets back into little ficlet-y things, and not spend time on them as full-fledged fics? Yeah, not so much.

Oh well. The good news is, I should have a new fic to post soon!

In other news, my prodigious attempts at writing procrastination led me to come across a Space:1999 fanvid that I wish to share with you all. For those of you who don't know the show, the second series featured an alien named Maya who can shapeshift into any living creature. (Just like one-half of The Wonder Twins, which was on at around the same time if I'm not mistaken.) The fanvid features some of Maya's more interesting changes -- aka, "If you thought that Classic Doctor Who's monsters looked bad, wait'll you see this." (I'm especially fond of the shuffling, glow-in-the-dark green tents with eyes, although those weren't just Maya-creatures, but also actual invaders of the moonbase.) The scenes in the fanvid are out-of-context enough to be non-spoilery, unless you didn't want to know that yes, the producers did really have Maya change into a cockroach, and what's your point? The fanvid is also a shippy tribute to Maya's relationship with Tony, and I confess that I do indeed ship Maya/Tony, and this fanvid shows why -- they have excellent on-screen chemistry with each other, and Tony never seems fazed by anything she transforms into, although he really probably should be. Anyway, enjoy!

fanvid is under the lj-cut )

The state of the weekend:

-- Just finished another round of [community profile] fic_rush. It was great to see so many of my flist there, even though in most cases it was me reading your posts after-the-fact since I wasn't around during the same hours. It's weird how you can forget how far apart we all live until someone is posting about waking up shortly after you've gone to bed!

-- Speaking of [community profile] fic_rush, I worked on another [profile] 50ficlets ficlet which is kinda sorta finished, depending on whether I want to declare it so or not. Basically there's stuff there that I could expand and work on, or else I could call it a ficlet and post it. I don't want to get too hung up on the quality of my ficlets since part of the original point was to approach these as writing exercises and allow myself to go back and re-work the best ones, but I do feel that this particular ficlet is still pretty far off the mark from where I would like it. On the other hand, if I keep trying to turn my ficlets into polished pieces, I am never ever going to get through all 50. Well, maybe I'll give this one a little bit more time and work and see what happens.

-- Finally got to see "Amy's Choice" and I've watched it 3 times already. Non-spoilery summation is that I loved it. I am also finally loving the new TARDIS. More to come in an official reaction post later, after further processing.

Yes, I am going for it! I've joined [livejournal.com profile] 50ficlets and will now embark upon writing 50 ficlets for the following prompt table. I claimed Sarah Jane Smith (what can I say, my favorite character to write) and I expect that most of these will wind up being about the Doctor / Sarah relationship. That's where my muse is at the moment, anyway.

I won't be posting the resulting ficlets individually in this journal, but once I get a decent set together I'll do a batch post. Everything will also be posted over at [livejournal.com profile] 50ficlets and I'll provide links at this table as I fill them in.

I'm approaching this partly as a writing exercise, so the ficlets that come out of it may not be up to my usual quality (such as it is). Fair warning now. However, I do hope to take the best ones and polish them up and tie them into one full-fledged story at the end. That's the plan, anyway.

Thanks (or blame) to [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook for introducing me to the [livejournal.com profile] 50ficlets comm and letting me know about the existence of this awesome prompt table.

Here it is -- wish me luck!

#01 - Black & White #02 - Me & You #03 - Sent away #04 - Missing you #05 - Will never be
#06 - First love #07 - Getting there #08 - Hit or Miss #09 - Touch me #10 - Light & Dark
#11 - Thunder & Lightning #12 - Me or Them #13 - Hand on heart #14 - Heaven & Hell #15 - Good & bad
#16 - Right or Wrong #17 - Love/Hate #18 - Hurt me #19 - Lost & Found #20 - Naughty or Nice
#21 - Two faced #22 - Bone deep #23 - Aches & Pains #24 - Save me #25 - Make me
#26 - Break me #27 - Fast Forward #28 - Flash back #29 - Special Delivery #30 - Boys & Girls
