Well, since beeblebabe threw her proverbial hat into the proverbial ring and is writing the proverbial ficbits, what the hell, I will too. What can I say? I like doing these. I work best when I have other people expecting things of me in a timely manner.
HOW THIS WORKS:
You--yes, you, reading this entry right now, no matter how you came across it--leave a comment on this entry requesting a fandom, or a pairing, or a situation, or any reasonable combination thereof. And I will write you a short fic based on the premise you've provided, and reply to your comment with it. My ficbits tend to wind up around 300-1000 words in length, sometimes longer, and I reserve the right to fulfill your request in any way I see fit: porn, drama, comedy, bad verse, stupid parody, puppet shows, etc.
Please note that I likes me the mansmut an awful lot.
If you ask for something I can't do for whatever reason (I'm not familiar with the source material, I'm not comfortable with the source material, you're on too much crack even for me) I'll tell you so, and you can request something else.
WHAT I CAN DO:
I'm an RPG fangirl by trade, with both a PS2 and a GameCube. If it's an older game, I've almost certainly played it (unless it's a Tales games that isn't Destiny or a Persona game).
Of course, in the last few months the consoles have been hemorrhaging RPGs, so I'm currently floundering in the sudden bounty. I'm good for Suikoden 4, Star Ocean 3, and I'm about halfway through Xenosaga Ep. II; I can't remember a lot of the middle of SMT: Nocturne but I'm passingly familiar with it. If it's come out in the last three-four months and it's not on that list there, I probably haven't managed to play it yet.
I'm also good for: Silent Hill 2, Metal Gear Solid 2, some Dynasty Warriors, some Samurai Warriors, and pretty much anything by Nippon Ichi (Disgaea, Phantom Brave, La Pucelle, Rhapsody). Asking me for Katamari Damacy will probably get you shot, although it might also win you a fic that will melt your eyeballs.
I also read a fair bit of manga, and watch the occasional anime. I'm way, way, way behind on Naruto, so please, no Naruto requests this time around. I can, however, do you up all the Hikaru no Go you want, and I'm probably good for Gensomaden Saiyuuki, Matantei Loki Ragnarok, and Yami no Matsuei. I can probably fake it for the early volumes of One Piece, Bleach, and Shaman King. I've seen the Fruits Basket anime, although boy, that was a long time ago.
American comics? I read some of those. I tend to stick to independent titles and comics of the Warren Ellis Garth Ennis Alan Moore Neil Gaiman persuasion, but I'm also utterly fascinated with the DC Universe's Young Justice. Please note that I refuse to admit to the existence of the current run of Teen Titans past about issue four or so, but I'm familiar with the basics of it, and also the basics of the Outsiders. So, you know, Superboy, Impulse, Robin III, these things I can do.
I read a metric fuckton of books. SF? Fantasy? Mystery? Horror? Hey, I might just have you covered.
I watch the occasional mediocre movie. If it's SF, fantasy, or action/adventure, chances are reasonably good I've seen it. Despite watching almost no television at all I've also seen most of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer ('most' not including season seven), but I'm not entirely comfortable with the Buffster, so if you're going to go with that, go easy on me.
I consider RPS to be hysterically funny, but chances are good that if you ask for it, I'll write it. And it'll hurt you.
Basically, if I've mentioned something here on my LJ, on my site, on my old blog, or even in passing conversation with you, it's most likely fair game. The first four ficbit challenges are archived here, here, here, and here, and they will give you an idea of what I can and cannot do.
This LJ entry is likely to become very not safe for work. They always do.
This LJ entry is also likely to become positively riddled with spoilers. They always do.
One fic per person, please.
[EDIT, 3/11/2005:] I am about to have houseguests for a week and will not be writing during that time, but after that I will get back to these and finish up the uncompleted requests. Since it's been well over a week, requests are now CLOSED. I will write the ones that have been made already, but I will not accept any further requests.
[EDIT, 3/27/2005:] And done! Well, that took forever.
