I tossed my name in on the off chance someone might want to play.... I was dubious I would have time to write anything myself this time.

But someone remixed my Welcome to Night Vale Khoshekh drabble and it is delightful ^-^

I finally figured out how to make my Diablotin/Inception crossover feasible :V


Sanadhìl paused thoughtfully as he saw her to the door.

“If I do learn anything of use with this business, I’m certain you can find some way of extracting it.”

“Of course…!” She’d smiled, and since then, she’d been giving the matter heavy consideration. It seemed he had thought of something, but he couldn’t tell her without compromising the situation.

Ilphère was no enchanter, but there were other means of accessing the mind. Her smile widened, her countenance becoming more animated as she the considered the possibilities of her craft…

Sanadhìl watched her go, hoping his trust was not misplaced.

Two more inception drabbles - one for [ profile] inception100, and another that arose from it but isn't currently postable to the community. Open to better title suggestions for the second.

Warnings on the first for questionable consent, sexual violence, and mind-fuckery.... all that in 100 words :V

The Girl with the Green Ring )

(A couple of drabbles written for [ profile] inception100...)

High Tide
Notes: based on my memories of trips to the Bay of Fundy, where careless people really can drown when they aren't paying attention to the incoming tides. Open to suggestions for a better title.

Mud and little pools of water stretch as far as he can see; slimy, warty seaweed covers the rocks. They were talking about accounts, clients, secrets. Progress. But this is not the beach he designed.

She smiles. “The tides rise fast here. People get stranded on sandbars just like this one and drown.” She plucks a small snail from a tide pool. “I love periwinkles. I used to imagine you could find some secret to the universe if you could understand how their shells formed so perfectly.” She looks at him as the waters rush in. “Take it… and try.”


The architect builds the dream, the dreamer populates it.

Some minds are more creative, and buck against the bland recreations of reality that extractors find most effective for their task. Some minds are too disturbed, and carry dangerous baggage hidden deep in the subconscious. Even the best profiler isn’t psychic, can’t know all a mark’s hidden traumas.

The sunny park across from the towering skyscraper is supposed to offer the target a mental reprieve, to represent a place of safety. They’re walking there now, the conversation casual and the glances nervous as all around them, faceless clowns sharpen their knives….

Title: Dream Girl
Word Count: 100
Rating: PG13?
Challenge: Drabble Challenge #6 - Forgery
Characters: nebulously gendered OC

The moral nebulousness of the dream realm meant that there was a growing market for arranged erotic encounters. The workers were called dream girls, though they could be anyone.

Even within the realm of Morpheus’s brothel, Muse was a specialist. Muse wouldn’t give you just any pretty face, or even one of the popular encounters with knock-off celebrities, personalities cobbled together from red carpet interviews and tabloid headlines.

Muse would give you the girl next door. Or your best friend’s wife. Or your best friend.

It was delightfully ironic, Muse considered, that these most mundane impersonations commanded the highest fees.

Someone has managed to combine two of my (current) favourite things, and created an [ profile] inception100 challenge community for Inception drabbles. How could I resist that?

Word Count: 100
Rating: G
Challenge: 5 - You want me to do what?
Characters: Arthur, Ariadne
Warnings/Author's Notes: I have a very esoteric interpretation of what was going on in this movies, and any writing that I do will probably reflect this :V


“You just said you don’t believe in inception.”

“I’m not talking about planting a new idea.” He was no good with metaphors, and couldn’t express the nuances.

“Then explain again. You want your friend to get over his wife. “Get on with your life – that’s not a new idea?”

The girl seated across the table seemed so young, and he wondered if she could understand the fire that Dom and Mal had lived, and how it now burned out of control. “This is something he wants. He just needs--”

Ariadne smiled. “Someone to show him through the maze?”

A short drabble in response to Bart's request for the latest writing meme. One of Hadyn's first experiences on Keth. A proper drabble - 10 words even. woot!

Yoinked from [ profile] shadow_truths, who yoinked from [ profile] meallanmouse...

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in thefuture after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before thestory started, and I'll tell you what happened then in at least 100words, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten yearsin the future.

Alternatively, give me a time and a character from an RPG.

(With the proviso that for ongoing stories, I may not know what happens 10 years in the future, but I'll see what I can do ;)

(and the extra proviso that I'm not 100% sure when I'll get to this!)

The daily writing challenge over at [ profile] august_writing today was to use your music player of choice to select a song, and use its title for the first line of your story. I came up with "Shake your Coconuts" by junior senior, and I couldn't really resist. Whee! I need sleep ;_;

Shake'em! )

Okay poeple, I officially rock. 100 words, perfectly. A pirate rap, for [ profile] blackbuffet. Youll have to do the rapping yourself, but the metre is fairly straightforward and you can use your imagination ;) This didn't even take me all that long, and I only had to cut one word in order to have it turn out. Obviously, pirates are my true calling.

All Pirates go to Hell )

I hope this satisfies! For [ profile] curtana, who left me with the very challenging task of coming up with 100 words of Belkar/Miko. It isn't that smutty, I suppose, but, I'm using the icon anyway!

Thrill of the Hunt )

This was a short little scene that came to me while I was planning for the most recent installment of Pieces. I really like Victor, and it is nice to write somethig from a different POV once in a while :) This is also his theme song if anyone wondered ;)

A bonus drabble for [ profile] ladyiolanthe, because she *would* have asked for it, and I felt like it :)

Heart of Darkness )

[ profile] xypharan asked me for something to take place in his superhero universe. We call it 'DC', which is funny, because it has nothing to do with DC except for some borrowed Vertigo elements. The rules system is technically called Blood of Heroes these days. I think the name just proves that gamers are a stubborn breed and slow to change ;) I tried out various scenes in my mind using pre-existing characters, but none of them pleased me. So I decided to do this instead, which is related a new breed of mutant/superheroes that have appeared relatively recently. Its alternate title is "Chalk One Up for the Allfather..."

One More to the Dance )

Originally I thought she meant for me to specifically wrote a drabble about her. But no, he just wanted one done *for* her, with whatever I wanted. But I decided to draw inspiration from her, and all my brave friends who dedicate themselves to the education of the unappreciative younger generations ;)

For [ profile] fritzleonhardt. He akesd for just about the most unikely of pairings from the DC heros games that [ profile] xypharan run - His (recently deceased) grizzled old black ops colonel, and my youmng disembodies amnesiac who lives in a computer. Well, this is the best I coudl do. I'm happy with it, anyway ^-^

For [ profile] lickthefrog. I hope this satisfies all parties ^-^

his is for [ profile] curtana. I like to think it answers an important historical question - Why did Bathrolomew Roberts, who became the most successful pirate of his age, turn to piracy in the first place? Roberts was elected captain after the death of Howel Davis at the Isle of Princes, and according to the articles from his ship, never approved of much of the revelry associated with piracy. Enjoy ^-^

The odd request brought to you by [ profile] balthcat. I think this will be my last for the night. Enjoy, you crazy wiki master! ^-^
