That Movie Meme  
Everyone should post their ten most CRUCIAL CRUCIAL CRUCIAL-ASS movies, like the movies that explain everything about yourselves in your current incarnations (not necessarily your ten favorite movies but the ten movies that you, as a person existing currently, feel would help people get to know you) (they can change later on obviously).

I keep thinking of doing this, but then over think it. Nin said just name off the top of my head, so will try that :D

1: Young Bess

2: Local Hero

3: Dangerous Beauty

4: The Ghost & Mrs. Muir

5: South Pacific

6: Akira Kurosawa's 'Dreams'

7: The original Star Wars trilogy

8: Camelot Force 10 From Navarone

9: Iron Man

10: Harvey

ETA: Honourable Mention: Carve Her Name With Pride

In no particular order, just as they came to me.

Three Things  
Seen all over:
I currently have 88 works posted on AO3. Choose a random number - no peeking! - between 1 and 88, and I will tell you three things I currently like about that story.

Obviously not all my fic, just newest and what I've gotten around to posting on AO3, but still, a selection :D

Let's see if this can kickstart more fannish type posting, since I can't even seem to work up enough enthusiasm to post about ST:Into Darkness.

Ask Me  
Seen on my f'list:

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. But here’s a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: “Ah, there’s Parker… she likes money and cereal.” I’d love it if everyone who’s friended me did this. (Yes, even you people who I know really well.) Then post this in your own journal. In return, ask me anything you’d like to know about me and I’ll give you an answer.

Time for something that doesn't make me grumpy!

Ask my characters a question. I make you no promises they'll tell the truth, however....

WIP Meme  
Pillaged from a stellar variety of folk!

Post the first sentence (or three) from every WIP you're currently working on, even if it's very short. Then invite people to ask questions about your WIPs. With any luck, the motivation to take that WIP one step closer to completion will appear as if by magic!

I only have three, currently.

1: Once upon a time, on Earth, Immortals were at the top of the food chain. They may not have known what they were, or where they came from, but they were secure in the knowledge that they were unique and without peer. But there came a day that something happened to shatter that belief.

2: “You are the most beautiful boy. Yes, you are! Are you lonely here all by yourself?”

Colonel Luis Montoya, military governor in the service of his Majesty the King of Spain here in this part of Alta California, paused at the sound of the female voice, speaking in English.

3: “If you want me to come, then of course I will. But I think you overestimate any influence I might have with Chris.”

“Thank you, Charlotte,” Ezra said, relief colouring his voice.

1. Go to page 7 of your most recent WiP
2. Count seven lines down
3. Copy and paste the next seven lines of text


I'm working on three at once, so three sevens.

From Too Young For Heaven (Magnificent 7):
“Maybe we should brew one of yer fine healin’ teas there, Nathan. Sure it would make ya feel a whole lot better.” There was a bit of an evil gleam in Vin’s eyes.

Ezra chuckled and even Charlotte’s lips twitched at the rather vengeful tone underlying the sharpshooter’s words.

“Don’t need none! And there ain’t nothin’ wrong with my teas!” Nathan said firmly. “Y’all just don’t know what’s good for you.” He tried to get out of the bed again, only to have Vin push him back down one more time.

From White As Snow, Red As Blood(Highlander/Avengers):
"Is he all right?" she demanded, fear curling in the pit of her stomach. She hadn't heard from Methos in days. Had something happened? Jane had told her how Loki had tried to kill his brother, and that he had attempted to destroy an entire planet. Only Thor's intervention, destroying the Bifröst, had prevented it.

"For now," he said softly at her ear.

She pressed back against the table, instinctively reaching behind for the shears she knew were there, her fight or flight instinct choosing fight with no hesitation.

From At The Edge of Heaven (Queen of Swords):
“You are laughing at me.” She looked down at her hands. “Mock me if you will, but I shall continue with their lessons!”

“I am not laughing at you, Isabelle, and I would never mock you.” With a finger under her chin, he tipped her face up to meet his eyes. “It is an admirable thing you do. Just step carefully; there are many who are quite happy with the status quo.”

She sniffed. “I would like to see them try and stop me!” Whirling, she strode from the room.

Sighing, he said softly, “So would I, little sister, so would I.”

Fan Fiction Test  
Pillaged from [livejournal.com profile] americanfairy

Your result for The Fan Fiction Personality Test ...
The Mindgamer

Everything is possible, nothing is ever really over.

Fanfiction is a creative outlet for you. You don't intentionally write it, it just happens. You find inspiration in several fandoms, but are not obsessed with only one.

You like to explore "what if" situations. What if this character had never made this very choice? What if this event had taken place sooner, never, elsewhere? What if these people had never met?

You are likely to write Alternative Universes, fan seasons or sequels and just follow your (sometimes pretty strange) plot bunnies.

Sorry it took me so long to answer the meme questions.

[livejournal.com profile] luscious_words asked: Of all the fanfics you've written or are writing, was there a series that you originally did not like but then grew to love?

No, though the current one started as a one shot, and ended up becoming a series. Still not quite sure how that happened.

[livejournal.com profile] jedimasterstar asked: Is it difficult for you to make sure several stories stay together? Or, how hard it is for you to keep facts straight from story to story?

Yes! It can be very difficult. That's why I have an Excel spreadsheet for the larger series to keep track of dates and when individual stories in the series are set. And even then, I often have to go back to refresh my memory on some detail I can't quite remember. I try very hard to maintain continuity. I also use the series spreadsheet to jot down stuff I know happened, that hasn't actually been in a story, but might be referenced at some point.

Ask Me  
Pillaged from [livejournal.com profile] ariestess

Ask me a question about one of my fanfics or fanfic series. It can be absolutely anything in any fic and I will tell you the honest-to-goddess answer (even on the progress/plans for next chapters of current series).

Don’t hold back. Whatever you ask, I'll answer as truthfully and as completely as possible. You can also ask about my writing as a whole, if you like.
