What an awesome meme. I can't guarantee I'll be able to do it, because my writing fu deserted me about four years ago, but I'd like to give it a try. Assuming you can even remember any of my fics ... Choose any of my stories and give me a timestamp for it (e.g. 2 years later, one week beforehand etc.) and I'll [try to] write a drabble for you.

ETA: Haha! Brad/Caleb Kane mood icon! Haven't seen that one in a while! :)

When in doubt, post a meme *g* Last seen on [livejournal.com profile] epeeblade's LJ, this looks rather fun. Although sadly these days I don't write in any fandoms. But maybe this will inspire me. Don't feel obliged to stick to "pirates with fairy wings set in the 14th century but with space technology" type AUs. You know me, my favourite AUs are the "what if X happened/never happened?" type

The Hypothetical AU Meme: Take any one of the fandoms you know I write in, and give me a type of AU (space opera AU, pirate AU,superhero AU, Ancient Rome, etc). I will then explain what story from your chosen fandom I would write for your chosen type of AU.

NerdTests.com says I'm a Kinda' Dorky High Nerd.  What are you?  Click here!

I'm quite surprised I scored so highly. Except on literature - a literature nerd I am clearly not :)

We interviewed an American girl from Austin, TX, today. That was fun.

I haven't done a meme in ages, but I like the look of this one.

Name a character and I'll tell you three (or more) facts about them from my personal fanon.

Go for it. Shows I think I can probably do include: SGA, Buffy, SG1, HP, SPN, CSI, LOM, DW, and Due South.

There may be others - if there's something else, just suggest it and I'll see what I can do.

Okay, I got tagged by [livejournal.com profile] niannah, and I'm working myself back into writing on LJ, so a meme is probably just what I need.

Presented here for your delectation and delight! The Five Favourite Fics meme!

Post a list of your top five favorite fics you've written, regardless of fandom or the reason you love them. This isn't about the BEST things you've written, but what you LOVE most. Then tag five other people to do the same.

1. Dark Magic AU: Part 1 | Part 2

“You call at 5am after, what, eight months, about nothing special.” He tries to sound incredulous, surprised, and maybe there’s an edge of it in his voice, but really, it can’t be a surprise. There’s only so many times something can happen and still be a surprise, after all.

“I’m just tired,” Tucker says, quiet and empty and with just enough need that Warren feels his skin prickle. “I’m so tired of them all, Warren. It’s been great and all, but ..” He sighs and Warren shuts his eyes again. “I just .. I’m need to rest. I can’t keep doing this, I can’t, it’s too much.”

Warren lies for a few seconds and listens to him breath down the phone. “What do you need?” he asks eventually.

“Come get me?” Tucker asks, with so little question, so little hope in his voice, Warren knows that Tucker is already sure he’ll come.

This one will probably always be my favourite of the things I've written. I love the length, I love the characterisation, and I love that it feels so complete. So often things (College AU, for example) just sort of die, or reach a natural stopping point without concluding. With this one I really felt that I'd taken it from beginning to end via middle, and I never felt the need to go back and "finish" it.

The characterisation of Tucker, particularly the dark magic elements, were first posited by someone else ([livejournal.com profile] niannah? Or [livejournal.com profile] packmentality? I can't remember, I'm afraid), and I loved developing them and seeing them grow into something full and fascinating. I also loved writing Warren for this one. With the Warren/Andrew stuff, Warren was almost always the one in control. With this, he was completely lost, muddling through life and trying his best to keep things together while the whirlwind that was Tucker kept appearing and throwing everything into chaos. I really enjoyed making him that vulnerable.

2. From here to St Tropez: Part 1

No one had wanted to be the one to say it, but they'd all known that it was time. The Trio was officially breaking up. Going their separate ways. Artistic differences.

I only really love the first part of this one. There are bits about the later parts that I like, but it should have stayed a one shot. It makes me feel like there's sun on my skin and sand between my toes, and I love that there's hope in it, and a sense of peace that the show never managed.

From my notes, it seems to be one of the first times, if not the first, that I wrote Warren POV. What an odd thought. It's probably the closest I got to canon, though, taken from that start point.

3. Where the Streets Have No Name: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5

To say that it was something of a surprise would've been a gross understatement, and given that Andrew was prone rather to overstatement than its reverse, his version of the tale, when he told it years later, became far more dramatic than the actual reality of the day. However, it was a hell of a shock, and while Andrew didn't really collapse on the sidewalk and have to be resuscitated by a passing ER doctor, he was pretty floored by it.

God, I've just reread the end of this one. I'd forgotten how it finished. I love fic like that, that catches you unawares. I remember when I was writing this, I was at University doing my Masters, and one day, walking over the bridge across the Wear, it just occured to me how it had to end. Warren's a bit off, I think, but overall I love the concept, I love the softness of the language, and I love the feeling of it.

4. Zen and the Art of Necromancy: Part 1

"You have to talk to someone eventually," [Andrew] says, all business and if Tucker were capable of feeling it, it might hurt to get such a non-reaction. "It'll probably be easier if it's me."

"What, because all the other Watchers are such assholes, but you just want to be my friend? Fuck off." Tucker pulls his knees up to his chest and concentrates on staring out of the little, barred window of his cell. He already knows help is on the way, he can feel it right down to the subatomic level of his skin, dancing.

I love this one. I don't think anyone else appreciated it quite the way I did. I love the mood, and I love the concept, and I love the ending. I love Tucker, I love that it's sort of Dark Magic AU-verse, but not. I love Andrew the Watcher, being on the Other Side. I love Giles. I love the black jeeps. Haha! :) I love the magic, and I love the ending. Mmm :)

5. In Theory: Part 1

It seems stupid to say that he looks bigger, but that's the first thing that Zelenka notices. That and more .. just more. As if being up close brings with it all the intensity previously defused throughout a hall full of delegates.

McKay turns and looks at him. "What the Czech for lemon?" he asks, and Zelenka thinks it's an oddly fitting way for him to have introduced himself.

Ah, my one and only SGA fic, written (I hate to admit it) before I'd actually seen more than a handful of episodes of the show. If I wrote it again now, I'd undoubtedly do things differently, but I do have a special place in my heart for this one. There are things about it that I love very much. Overall, I'm fairly happy with it. Ironically, it's also one of the fics I've had the most feedback for.

There are actually more as well. I thought I'd struggle to find five, but I also love Ten Thousand Spoons, my post-Chosen, BtVS/AtS Warren/Knox fic, and I love Divided, my Warren/Buffy Wishverse fic, and I love After the Storm, with Tara, Warren and Andrew, because it's so fricking weird! And I love Juliet and Romeo, because it's Warren/Cordelia OMG but it makes total sense to me!! I had this whole AU planned out in my head for AtS, but, alas, it never got written.

I also love All Blue and Gold and Black, because it has Caleb and Buffy, and Catholic school uniforms (I have issues). And there's also Three Things That Never Happened..., which I love love love, but no one else loves it.

And there's also Superhero, my Buffy/Jonathan fic, set in [livejournal.com profile] niannah's Unabomberverse. I love this one. I love giving Buffy a normal life, giving Jonathan some happiness, and I love the softness of it all.

So yeah. That's my slightly-more-than-five-actually favourite fics written by me ;)

Heh. Can't argue with that, really.

You scored as Angel. Angel: Angels are the guardians of all things, from the smallest ant to the tallest tree. They give inspiration, love, hope, and positive emotion. They live among humans without being seen. They are the good in all things, and if you feel alone, don't fear. They are always watching. Often times they merely stand by, whispering into the ears of those who feel lost. They would love nothing more then to reveal themselves, but in today's society, this would bring havoc and many unneeded questions. Give thanks to all things beautiful, for you are an Angel.
