Ang Lee and Brokeback Mountain have won the Venice Film Festival. *sigh* Come December, we will all know why, I hope, if they release the movie as widely as the ought to do. Ang Lee takes top prize at Venice Yay!

In other news, with a punk computer and a title-less story, I've been word-watching lately. What follows is a list of cool sounding titles for sale. Challenge: use title for inspiration )

I wrote a challenge response for [livejournal.com profile] nialla42; Go me!

Challenge: "Aliens didn't make them do it... but now that you mention it, that's a damned interesting idea." Bonus points if you can put in a tattoo reference -- either one of the guys has one, or it's part of the "aliens didn't make them do it" ceremony.
Challenge Issued by: Nialla
Word count: 1890
Title: Aliens Didn't Make Them Do It
Warnings: cliche.
Ratings: R or something

Challenge: SG-1 only. Write a story around someone's memory of cold hands. 1500 word limit.
Title: Into the Breach
Author: Minx
Word Count: 1002
Summary (or something): In Teal'c's experience, there was a point when sex became acceptable between comrades in arms.

ETA A/N: this story was remixed in 2008 by [livejournal.com profile] abyssinia4077 for the [livejournal.com profile] gateverse_remix. Abyssis' story is Rosemary for Remembrance (the Paragon of Animals remix), and it's an extraordinary partner for this one.

First challenge ever: If you loved Willimakee, or For Each Ecstatic Instant or Rounded with a Sleep, you need to go find a copy of the short story Brokeback Mountain. It's Annie Proulx, and primarily in the collection Close Range, though [livejournal.com profile] nialla42 has several other anthologies she knows of that it will be in.

You don't have to go right now, as many of us work or go to school (or both) or have lives or whatnot... but sometime (and may I suggest today? At least before the movie based on this comes out in December) you should stop by the bookstore, the library or your best friends who has every book under the sun's house and get your hands on this story. I read it last night and it is HAUNTING me. So heartrendingly lovely.

Pairings etc: Jack/Daniel, mild rating (you could even convince yourself it’s gen if you squint in a couple of places), Season 9. Frighteningly unbeta'd. Comments welcome.
