minxy: (Ronon scholar)
Hellooooo, fandom.

On the occasion of the prompt based [livejournal.com profile] galpalficathon (multifandom, no commitment!) I thought I would clear out my quotes folder. This is an attempt at organization before I head over there to drop prompts (prompts accepted between September 2-8th, writing due November 16th.) I love prompting from literary quotes and poems, but sometimes I do tend to repeat myself, so I thought, you know, in the interests of not ending up with both [livejournal.com profile] apocalypse_kree and [livejournal.com profile] galpalficathon prompts being identical...

On the other hand, wouldn't that be awesome? Seeing the same prompt taken to an apocafic place and a women's friendship place? That might be amazing.

Anyway, I'm still going to clear out the folder. You are most welcome to use these for whatever nefarious purpose your little heads can devise. Please let me know if your nefarious heads devise fic, though; don't want to miss that.

This morning I reached for some fake sugar without really looking at what I was doing; whole wheat lasagna noodles poured all down my arm onto the dish rack. I put them back with a fairly bemused attitude about it, but didn't clean any of the dishes again because I noticed the coffee maker gurgling grounds onto the counter. It was that kind of morning.

But yesterday was made of win because I, in my first ever ficathon moderator post, sent out 40+ Gateverse Remix assignments. I'm pleased to say that only one bounced back at me because the email address couldn't be found, and I'd failed to change the salutation name in two emails, but got the assignment correct, which I feel is probably more important (self identity and such notwithstanding.)

I've only second-guessed one or two assignments, even, one of which being my own (omgwhatwasIthinkingtooooohaaaaaard...) but I read a poem today that is really, really Vala, and I think it might help direct the story choice.

Super seekret confession: my remix technique is to pick a story as fast as possible so as to have lots and lots of time to live in the world and learn it, make it my story, that kind of thing. Which means I'm already behind on picking a story, dammit.

QUOTE DUMP! First poem is the one that makes me think of Vala. There are a number of traveling quotes too. )

No, seriously. An prep I worked all week on FAILED right before it became useful, and then my housemate (accidentally) wailed on me with a racquet later when I met her at the gym.

Leading to a HEAD WOUND.

Well, okay, just a big goose egg on my forehead, but it required ice! And it is still swollen a little and it hurts today!

And I may have volunteered to give a journal club presentation in my woe over the failed experiment (dammit! I was going to do some fun stuff today and now I can't on account of LOSING THAT PREP.)

One of my grad students tried to suggest that I buy a lotto ticket yesterday in anticipation of the dramatic karmic upswing that was bound to happen. He underestimated the depths of bad karma that would apparently be plumbed.

It's a tale of woe.

To cheer myself up, I'm posting a quote dump, collected since the last time I posted a quote dump, but with significantly more poetry, actually. I partially blame [livejournal.com profile] synecdochic for introducing me to a kick-ass poetry community called [livejournal.com profile] breathe_poetry. As before, there is very little fannish relevance here, unless one of you take these as inspiration.

Random icon actually chose a headwound shot. Ironic.

That is all.

So [livejournal.com profile] katie_m does these fantastic posts she calls quote dumps every once in a while, and they are just fascinating for the nuggets of wisdom that fandom produces. At some point, the folder of ideas and quotes and prompts that I keep for rainy days where I need a title or a ficathon prompt or inspiration or something aquired the title of 'quotedump' in homage, though they are usually literature or non-fiction based. I don't read enough meta to collect cool fandom quotes like Katie does. But she told me to post! She did!


If you've ever received a prompt from me, discussed fic titles or seen those long, fabulous lists of prompts we all contributed to at [livejournal.com profile] choc_fic, [livejournal.com profile] samcarter_gen or [livejournal.com profile] apocalypse_kree, you may very well recognize some of these:

Quote Dump: fiction, non and points between. )

Steal, borrow, copy, be inspired by, or guess-where-I-submitted-that-prompt at will.
