Anything to keep from actually sitting down and writing.

I always thought that if you left out your outline with a glass of single malt Scotch, the fanfic gnomes would come and write your stories for you in the night. That turns out not to be the case.

Meme from all over my flist. Sentences/paras from my WIPs, at least the ones that are past the outline stage. Most are PoT, but I found HP and ES21 as well and moved them into the working folder. There is MitKo in my head, but it has not been written down.

* One day, Sena didn't show up. Shin sat alone in the dark, wondering why he felt lost when he knew exactly where he was.

* Marcus was hostile and cold and Oliver didn't much feel like trying to cope. So they just avoided each other for three days. Except for last night when Marcus pushed Oliver against the wall and pinned his hands above his head. "I should break your wrists," Marcus said.

* And when Kaidoh was staring blankly across the courts, trying to focus on something that was not another boy, Fuji came up to him and tapped him in the middle of the forehead with one finger.

* Kachirou starts out fumbling and he worries that the match with Arai was a fluke. Maybe it was just his anger that let him return the ball.

* Ryoma is still watching him and Tezuka wishes that Ryoma were looking at him for the same reason Tezuka is looking away.

* Since Tezuka had gone, Inui's special presentations were more frequent. Oishi couldn't seem to say no to him.

* Lunch was almost Kaidoh's favourite part of the day.

* Their room at Court Hall is not quite neat and not quite tidy. Inui can't break himself of scribbling on the walls when he's thinking and Yanagi leaves his clothes draped over his chair, only putting them away when he has a new set to hang there.

* Tezuka woke up sticky.

* The day Tezuka defeats Yamato, Inui buys a new green notebook and writes "Tezuka Data" on the cover in heavy black ink. He likes the way the marker smells and he writes his own name slowly, so he can smell it a little longer.

* Kaidoh still wasn't sure why. Sometimes, he wanted to say that Momoshiro was just a pervert. But then that would mean he was letting a pervert do things to him. So then he wanted to say that this was all his idea. Which would mean that he was a pervert.

* Oishi leans over, hands on his knees, trying to get more air into his lungs, not wanting to look at Tezuka. It stings to lose so completely, it stings to be so little challenge.


From an abandoned HP Adrian Mole pastiche. Neville is the diarist:

* I have got a spot coming on the side of my nose and another on my forehead. I asked Gran for thirty sickles to send away for some Cleary's Clear-Up, but she said it was a perfectly normal stage of adolescence and there was no reason to spend good money on quackery! That's easy for her to say, I bet no pimple ever had the nerve to bother her.


I only have one line of this. I really wish I remembered what I was going to do with it.

* Of all the things Tezuka wants to do with Ryoma, this is the only one that isn't wrong.


And 111 words of TezuRyo which I may have possibly posted in comments somewhere at some time. Or not. The file is named "letters" but I can't see why, from the text.


There are six cookies in the box. Momo tries to swipe one and Ryoma pulls the box away. "Echizen!" Momo says and makes a face. "Anyhow, she's cute. You should date her."

"No," Ryoma says. Dating is annoying and stupid. Girls are annoying and stupid. The cookies are good, though. After practice, there are two left. He offers them to Tezuka.

"Why did you accept them?" Tezuka asks.

Ryoma doesn't know what to say. People give him things and he takes them. It has never occurred to him to say no.

Tezuka doesn't take a cookie. Ryoma eats one as they walk. It doesn't taste as good as the others did.

do i see what i think i see? :D :D :D

Also, anything with "Tezuka woke up sticky" in it has got to be good. And that other TezuRyo line is so pretty. And Oishi! :(( Oh, I can't wait for you to finish these!

Now I want cookies.

That Data Pair story is kicking my ass, I must say. I know where they are at the beginning and I know where they will be at the end and I know the the theme and I know, broadly, a few things that happen, but the actual thread of the story hasn't surfaced yet. It's all background and no foreground right now. Which makes it hard to actually write. I'm blaming Inui, since he's convenient.

Hahahaha, that's the trouble I'm having with the InuKai fic I'm writing now. We should swap. :P

I have trouble coming up with plots, too. I get ideas for general feelings of stories, and images, and one or two scenes, but then it's hard slotting all of those things into their proper time and place so that there's something cohesive to read in the end.

Oh...I love the tidbits and the promise they hold! My favs:

* Ryoma is still watching him and Tezuka wishes that Ryoma were looking at him for the same reason Tezuka is looking away.

* The day Tezuka defeats Yamato, Inui buys a new green notebook and writes "Tezuka Data" on the cover in heavy black ink. He likes the way the marker smells and he writes his own name slowly, so he can smell it a little longer.

and

* Of all the things Tezuka wants to do with Ryoma, this is the only one that isn't wrong.

I think that last Tezuka line would fit into any TezuRyo that I write. *g* It's the Inui story I most want to get back to, though. He's rapidly becoming my favourite character to write and his relationship with Tezuka is so interesting.

Are you writing Shin/Sena? *excited* I'm looking forward to all your TezuRyo and getting-high-on-marker-fumes!Inui and your Kaidoh is always fantastic.

Tezuka doesn't take a cookie. :((

I really want to get caught up with the ES21 manga and jump into the fandom. I need to make a schedule for that or something. *g* I think I have at least one Shin/Sena in me; I love them so much but they are problematic too.

Tezuka's cookie rejection! Poor Ryoma.

SHIN/SENA?? *__* Yummy.

And all the rest of the sentences intrigue me. I hope they become bigger things eventually. ^.^ (Though I do understand the feet dragging. I'm doing a bit of that myself. =_=)

Shin is love. And Sena is so sweet and they are so awkward and passionate and sweet. It's a lovely, uncomplicated rivalry, at least so far as I've read. (I'm really behind with the manga right now.)

Some of these will probably fall by the wayside, but most I'm determined to finish at some point. If only the actual *writing* weren't such a pain!

I want to read the PoT fics so badly!

Me too, actually. The other day I picked up a WIP I'd put down a month or so ago and read through it. When I came to the end of what I'd written, I was really disappointed that there wasn't any more. I wasn't sure whether to be happy I liked what I'd written so much or ticked off that there wasn't going to be any more if I didn't sit down and write it.

It is and it's one of the ones I really want to finish up. I love them so much.

* Since Tezuka had gone, Inui's special presentations were more frequent. Oishi couldn't seem to say no to him.

I don't know whether to be traumatised or entranced ...

Hee! The actual pairing for that story doesn't involve any of the characters in that line. And Inui's getting a little Elmer Drimsdale there.

* Kaidoh still wasn't sure why. Sometimes, he wanted to say that Momoshiro was just a pervert. But then that would mean he was letting a pervert do things to him. So then he wanted to say that this was all his idea. Which would mean that he was a pervert.

I want to read this one. I want to read this one so, so badly. ♥

I really wish it were finished! Kaidoh is being difficult.

It is unfortunately part of his charm. XD

The first one is what I'm working on now, so that's the most likely to see the light of day. The sticky one, well, I'll have to see how that one goes. If I don't finish it, I might cannibalise that bit of it for something else. It's fun to torture Tezuka with adolescent problems. :)

Hope you get to finish all of this ^-^

OMG you have no idea how happy I would be if you finished the ShinSena. There is not enough Eyeshield in the world, and Eyeshield by you would be much with the awesome.

And the Kaidoh and Fuji one... YES
