Shared by [livejournal.com profile] mrua7, and copy/pasted from her lj. Anyone wishing to post in theirs is welcome to copy/paste, too.

1: Pick five fandoms. List them in alphabetical order.

2: Visit http://plagiarist.com/poetry/random/ to find your first RANDOM POEM OF POWER. Write down the 5th line (yes, even if it's an E.E. Cummings poem and you wind up with an apostrophe). Repeat five times and - you guessed it - list 'em in alphabetical order! (No cheating, mind! This is a challenge and it's always been about creativity.)

3: I think you can see where this is going. Write a very quick 50-word half-drabble for each fandom (try to do it all in one sitting - make your brain explode!), using the line from the poem as a prompt. You don't have to include it in the half-drabble - it's just inspiration.

4: Bravo! Have a cookie.



I thought I'd use five poets who aren't on plagiarist.com's list, but I think should be. The half drabbles are poor, but the poets are good.

fandom: Alias Smith and Jones. Poet: James Elroy Flecker - At last they knew that they had died

Heyes had insisted on attending their burial. He was rather impressed by their graveside elegy. “Y'know, Kid. If we're as good as they say, they'll let us into Heaven.”

“Yeah.With the Governor and McCreedy and...”

Heyes thought it over. Not for long. “The Grand Canyon, just to start with?”


fandom: Man from UNCLE. Poem – Kalevala (Runo XIV) - She the best of all among them

“The old fox!” said April, half admiring and wholly dismayed. “But, Napoleon, you..?”

“No. Thrush thought I'd take over, but Waverly was right. You're the right choice for his job.” Even she looked only half persuaded.

To convince the rest, he wondered if he'd have to leave UNCLE.



fandom: Saiyuki. Poet CS Lewis - Groping, guessing, yet progressing (Believe it or not, I chose the poem before I saw the line)

Hakaryuu sat at the top of the mountain track and gave an encouraging cheep.

“Thank you,” said Hakkai, politely. “But I think it will take a bit longer than that. Had we but the wings of a dragon...Please, Sanzo?”

Ungraciously, Sanzo let Goku loop the climbing rope around him.


fandom: Weiss Kreuz. Poet: John Manifold One dies at Zutphen, one in Greece

Recruited young, Crawford couldn't bind strongly to individuals. But, he hoped Mamoru Takatori kept Nagi safe from Essett's revenge.

He regretted Farfarello, car bombed with his wife.

He pallidly mourned Schuldig, dead from rat poison.

And he hoped Essett wouldn't get him, before he saved the world a second time.


fandom: Yami no Matseui. Poet: Adrian Mitchell To form a gentle fist


This morning, both regular users of the dojo were there. Hisoka was teaching Terazuma swordsmanship. “You hold too tightly. Hold your weapon no tighter than it wants to be held.”

His hand adjusted Terazuma's grip.

It felt warm. Terazuma deliberately, thoroughly, relaxed.

The half wakened Kagankokushungei drifted back to sleep.

Please do. I confidently expect you to do far better, and I'm looking forward to reading it.

Will be delighted to smother you with WK recs and sites, if you're not careful.

Bahaha, I don't know about better. I can't even decide which 5 fandoms to choose. Makes me realize I'm a fandom whore. Slut, I suppose, because no one pays me. ;)

When I get to watching WK, I will come to you first for recs. I love your style.

Hee! At least you have that many to pick from! I only write for two, really, (Saiyuki and FMA) and I only have a few other fandoms that I squee over.

I can't wait to write for FMA, but it's so big I'm super intimidated. LOL that didn't make my list either *embarrassed*

Come on over and see what I dragged up, if you want. And can I friend you? Haha random, I know...

I've been dipping my toe in the FMA fandom. My OTP in that fandom is Elricest, although I wrote an Al/Roy that is making me like that pairing. The FMA comms are pretty cool, and the exchanges and SlashFest are fun to do. There's a weekly Fic contest comm too.

Yay, friends! *friends you*

Oh God I don't have an OTP for FMA either. I want to try out every flavor of pairing under the Amestris sun. I need to check out some of the other FMA comms, I just watch the main one and the yaoi one. Someday I'll write fic, too. :D

I also like Roy/Ed, Maes/Roy and Al/Anyone. (I lovelovelove Al!)

fmaficexchange, fma_slashfest and fma_fic_contest are three of the other comms I belong to besides fullservicefma, fma_yaoi and elricest.

Oh Maes/Roy. That's so much goodness. I love Roy/Ed and Roy/Riza, too. Thanks - I'll check those out for sure!
