tsukinofaerii: Can't Think Without Coffee (Coffee)
[personal profile] tsukinofaerii
Stolen from many, many people, and done because I'm procrastinating. Many of these may never be finished. At least two of them will. One is up for beta, should anyone be interested. (The last.)
Post a sentence (or two or a paragraph) from as many of your WIPs as you want with no explanation attached.
  1. Steve put his hands on Tony's shoulders and took a step back. He had a mission, and he couldn't let a fantasy derail it. "I need your password to the Extremis, Tony. It's urgent."

    One dark eyebrow lifted mockingly. Tony didn't move away from him, but he didn't try to re-close the distance either. "It'll cost you a kiss."

    "Stop playing games. It's your life!"

    "You say that like it's worth something." The smile didn't change, but suddenly Steve didn't find it as charming anymore. Tony looked up at him through his girlishly thick lashes, without a hint of shame. "We both know what I'm good for: a good party and a good fuck. You might as well take 'em while they last, or someone else will."

  2. Going by Stark's expression, apparently not. "It's a formal event, Rogers. Do you know what everyone thinks about a woman who arrives alone at a formal event?" Silently Steve shook his head. "That she won't be leaving alone. Go shower."

    One more protest had to be made. "You don't even like me."

    Stark turned her back on him and started yanking him along again, like a poorly trained puppy. This time he let himself be dragged. "I didn't like my original date, either. You'll do."

  3. One minute. Two minutes. At the two-minutes, seventeen-seconds mark, the door to her room flew open. Someone rushed in, wearing the same strangely patterned loose pants and shirt that she'd assumed were the nurse's clothes, but it was clearly a man. Maybe it was a general uniform for hospital workers.

    A general uniform with red, devil-horned ducks on it.

    Nazis really were crazy.

  4. Steve's lecture faded off mid-sentence, eyes crossing. Jan gave them both a startled, then calculating look. Tony waved at her to make good her escape. She did so, sports towel snapping in her wake, but not without a few backwards glances. The rub continued until she was well out of sight. By then, Steve's eyes had closed. It was debatable whether or not he had even noticed her exit.

  5. The little conversations that had been going on in the background stop with the suddenness of a guillotine dropping. Even the ones in back who had been pointedly not looking at me—Pepper the redhead woman and James Barnes and Fuck fuck fuck Steve oh my god Steve

    INTERNAL SYSTEMS ERROR. This operation has caused a fatal system malfunction and will be terminated.

    —and the two in American colors—go silent.

  6. Everyone knows they don't eat people, Saora reassured himself, setting his work neatly in a pile. Let everyone else gawk at the rider. He wanted to see the dragon.

:D for no 2!

Yayy, after this week I'm pretty much free and writing up a storm the rest of it. *throws confetti* I can't wait to read the stuff for no. 2.

Erm, should I this meme, too? :D

Yes, I still need a beta. Help plz? :D

Number 2 actually has only a tiny number of words written for it. I got caught up in Bangs, whoops! It's currently 3 or 4 on the To Be Written list, after Bangs and a comment fic.

You should! (shoves meme at) I encourage people to let me know what to prod them about!

Sure! What is it you need prodded with a stick?

I recognise No 4! And No 3, or course.

I can beta for you, if you like. :)

I am not doing this meme because I do not have that kind of time. :p

You should recognize both of them! You are to blame to thank! After Bangs (3 & 5), #4 is up, because it should be short fun, and I'll need a brain-massage by then. (It was hard to find lines I like for #3. *whimper*)

Do you know Pern? Kingdom Hearts too, but since the place is Pern, that would be the real hook. (I can't remember if we've had this discussion about Pern. It was all over my LJ a while back lol.) The fic in question is actually what started the whole Pern thing back before I even was in Marvel, but my Beta had Life Happen and... well, yeah. It's far from new. I think I started writing it back in 08.

Ah, I wondered about 5! 1 sounds interesting, too. I do like Tony being all slutty and unconcerned for his life.

I know Pern. :) I dropped off after All The Weyrs Of Pern. I do not know Kingdom Hearts at all, though.

5 was supposed to be amnesia!Tony leads to virgin!Tony porn. The details of the amnesiac process are eating my soul though. 1 is a bait and switch. :D That's only sort of Tony. IDK if I will get back to it, since it's set in Tony's brain post Civil War, and then current canon came along... (I think a shocking number of people had 'go into Tony's head' as a possibility for this stuff. Jazzy called it. Other writers have called it. Canon did it. The hivemind is wonderful and scary.)

I consider nothing written by Todd McCaffrey or after the 9th Pass canon. ¬.¬ Kingdom Hearts would only be relevant for characterization, really, since it's a transplant AU and none of the KH conventions apply. I'm pretty comfortable with characterization, so if you don't mind dealing with only a smattering of minor characters you recognize, I can ship it along? FTR, I use Kingdom Hearts (which uses both Disney and Final Fantasy characters), Final Fantasy XII, Avengers... Ow. Ow ow. I forgot how big the massive fusion is lol. Most of those are minor, "name and a hair color" characters though.

I had some ideas for an Extremis fic written in crazy formatting, columns of different trains of thought, pictures and dialogue and footnotes... but the formatting would have been too hard. I like what you're doing there, though!

That sounds fine, sling it over. :)

I'm cheating when I write it. I go through and do the first draft, and then I go back and edit in the changes in formatting and thoughts. It saves a lot of time.

Thank you! ♥ I forgot it's big! D: I hope it doesn't eat you. (Dragons don't eat people. Fics, on the other hand...)
