always the hours

'Always the hours'

Language > English
Type > Original fiction
Length > Short story
Notes >
Not for the prompts (I'm working on those, but no new finished ones yet), but something I wrote a few months back. Somewhat based on personal experience, but with much love to Philip Glass and Michael Cunningham for providing the necessities that helped me write this the way I did. I think this is one of my best pieces thus far; what do you think?

yield to temptation

'Observator'

Language > English
Type > Fanfiction
Length > Story; just over 2000 words
Notes > Prompt #2, for Maaike this time. She gave me 'Yoshiki Hayashi. Toshimitsu Deyama. BDSM with Toshi as sub... and sex.' No smut and nothing explicit, but plenty of insinuations so I suppose you could consider it PG rated. In case you're not familiar with these people and/or their band, X Japan, I advice you to go here.

Not exactly proofread, so please point out any errors I made.

Disclaimer: don't own the characters, didn't make any money, am not at all claiming anything I wrote is true to factual history or even the characters' personalities. The people exist (or existed); I made up pretty much all the rest.

But he wasn't shy, he was just more of an observer than a talkerCollapse )

'Brilliant idea'

Language > English
Type > Original fiction
Length > Short story
Notes >
Story one for my prompt-request, for Jeroen. He said, 'I'm thinking of the phrase "Let's get pissed and watch porn" (Love Actually) and an elephant...' I wrote this.

resist temptation

"I get an urge, like a pregnant elephant, to go away and give birth to a book."

However, the problem is I'm not having many pregnant elephants lately. In fact, I feel rather writer's block-ed. So because I've been meaning to do something like this for a while, and because it seems like a good way to get rid of that block, I'm asking you guys for help. Give me a prompt, and I'll write you a story.

What you do
You give me something with which you want me to write a story. It could be anything, really. A lyric, a quote, a basic little plotline you've had in yoru head for a while, a simply opening and/or ending line - etcetera.
If you have any specific wishes, mention them too, such as name and/or age and/or gender of the main character(s), things or people you'd like to make an appearance in the story, a certain style in which you would like me to write (eg. first person perspective, humour), etcetera.
You give me the freedom to make of it whatever I wish; you give me the prompt, I make the story.

What you don't do
Give too many details - if you pretty much have the entire thing worked out in your head already, save yourself the disappointment of getting my version of it, and write it yourself :) As I said above; you give me the prompt, but I write the story. I'm merely an entertainer, not your transcriber.

What I do
I write you a story. It'll be somewhere between 500 and 2000 words long approximately (unless I feel extremely inspired to make it much, much longer) and finished before 2010 (unless, again, I get incredibly many requests and/or University demands more time than expected). I'll write it in English unless otherwise requested (the only other option, however, is Dutch).

yield to temptation

'Black lace'

Language > English
Type > Original fiction
Length > Short story
Notes > I went looking for a notebook earlier this day, and found this story that I'd half forgotten about, inside it. I had about 2/3rd of it finished, and wrote the rest today. I'm not entirely pleased with the last line, but other than that, I'm quite content.

I suppose it could be considered R-rated for BDSM; nothing explicit, but plenty of insinuations.

Inspired by Alice Cooper's song Poison. Not beta'd.

'I am'

Language > English
Type > Original fiction
Length > Short
Notes > Wrote this just now. Feel like I'm on a writing spree, so I might update more today. Short, pretty much plotless.

'Of a boy and a girl'

Language > English
Type > Original fiction
Length > Short
Notes > I wrote this on July 23rd in 2008, in Gozo. I think that is what inspired the dry, mediterranean-like landscape that I hope came across well. Still needs a better title; suggestions are welcome.

'The perfect fit'

Language > English
Type > Original fiction
Length > Short story
Notes > Inspired by the Dresden Dolls' songs
The perfect fit (uploaded for you because I'm nice) and Glass slipper. I'm not usually one to rip song titles as titles for my own fiction, but this first one just fit too amazingly well.

resist temptation

Art is the most intense form of individualism that the world has ever known

I would like to proudly point you all to this story!

A good friend of mine, [info]blocknotewriter on LJ, made an accompanying drawing to it and she gave me permission to post it here. I think it's gorgeous and a great addition to the story, so be sure to check it out!
