Drabble Meme: Bookstore AU Edition  
Hi all! I'm trying to get my muse back in gear despite how busy this summer is turning out to be, so I thought it would be fun to do a drabble meme. I have quite a few stories in the Bookstore AU that I would like to write, so I'm hoping to get the muse inspired on that front.

In the comments, leave me the name of a character from the 'verse and a noun (place, emotion, thing, whatever). :)

Prompt away!

A Documentary Rec and Other Rambles  
This last week has been crazy busy. School started again, my sister and then brother were in town and staying with me, and I'm so not used to either of those things anymore.

In trying to get back into the spirit of my writing, I watched the documentary Brotherhood: Life in the FDNY today. You can watch it here on YouTube in its entirety. It focuses primarily on Squad 252 in Brooklyn, Rescue 1 in Manhattan and Rescue 4 in Queens, but there are interviews with other firefighters throughout. It was filmed after September 11th, and the firefighters do discuss it. It's a very powerful and raw look at the FDNY, and I absolutely recommend it.

Bookstore Rambles Below )

ETA one more Rescue to the list that the documentary covered.

Fabulously Fannish Five Times Meme  
Suggested by [ profile] elrhiarhodan to cure my work day boredom. :)

Post a topic in my fandom: list, category, whatever, in the comments. (examples: "Five Dates X Regretted Going On," or "Five Things Y Has On His Shelf", or "Your Five Favorite Songs to Write to). I'll (try to) answer with a list of five things.

You can do White Collar or White Collar RPF as my fandoms. Or Supernatural or Dark Angel, if you feel like throwing back like it's Thursday.

My Writing: A Meme  
As seen on [ profile] sahiya's LJ/DW. It looks like fun, and I'm always happy to talk about my writing process.

The questions below are just suggestions. Ask me anything about my writing! Alternatively, you can ask:

1) What I was thinking at the time I wrote a story, or a question about my writing as a whole. The question can be about anything, including my WIPs.

2) Pick a character/pairing I've written and I will explain the top five ideas, concepts, etc. I try to keep in mind while writing that character/pairing.

3) Quote a few lines from something I've written and I'll comment on them.

4) At AO3 I have a total of 90 works, and you can ask me about any of them. Specifically, I think you'll all be more interested in the WC ones, so there are 62 White Collar works and 9 WC RPFs. Pick a number from 1 (the most recent) to 71 (the first story WC I posted there) and I'll tell you three things I currently like about the story.

5) I have 4 active 'verses in WC/WCRPF fandom - Will 'Verse, Unbreakable, Stand By Me/Lost Boys, and Bookstore. You can choose a verse and I'll tell you three or more things about it (things I like, things I find challenging, things that have evolved, and maybe a cookie of what's to come).

Note: AO3 is currently more up-to-date than my LJ because of the fandom stocking fics that I haven't gotten posted to my LJ yet. Any story that has been published is fair game.

ETA: Please feel free to ask another question/choose another fic. I'm having fun with this! :D

It didn't take long for Matt and Tim to learn a lot more about each other than either one even thought possible. )
