clare_dragonfly: woman with green feathery wings, text: stories last longer: but only by becoming only stories (Fringe: Walternate: evil)
Title: Hector
World: Moonsisters
Word count: 490
Rating: PG-13 for hot kissing
Prompt: 3WW: electric, passionate, savage
Notes: Angel's boyfriend! I don't think I ever gave him a name in the original incarnation. I'm not even sure he was ever seen on the page/stage (did I mention that I wrote a play about the Moonsisters in eighth grade? I wish I could find the script).

“Hey. Angel.”

Angel turned, surprised. That wasn’t Charlotte’s voice or Laura’s or Ivy’s; no one else ever spoke to her. Except Maureen. But this wasn’t Maureen.

It was a boy—a senior, a year older than her. Boys never called her anything but names. But this one was different.Read more... )

Title: The Geek
World: other (post-apocalyptic but not Wasteland)
Word count: 1,759
Rating: PG-13 for violence to animals
Prompt: 3WW: carcass, geek, slash
Notes: This is a fairly unpleasant story, but what did you expect with those prompt words?! It kind of feels like the start to a novel to me, but I'm not sure I could (or would want to) write a whole novel about Latanya.


Latanya had been waiting three years for this.

The first time the circus came through, she’d gone with her mother and her three older brothers. Her brothers had all gone into the tent to see the geek, and they’d all come out laughing and whooping. Latanya had asked—begged—to be allowed to go in to see it, but her mother had forbidden it and her brothers had forbidden it even more.

That night, Tony had woken them all up with his retching. There had been chicken feathers in his vomit. “The circus geek,” all three brothers murmured to each other (not knowing Latanya heard), and that was the last it had been spoken of.Read more... )

Title: Recruitment Day
World: The Ursulan Cycle
Word count: 577
Rating: PG
Prompt: 3WW: eradicate, mercenary, squeamish
Notes: I have now had my highest wordcount writing day that I've ever had outside of NaNo. It's probably in the top 10 ever. I swear, I was going to save this one for later... but no, it had to be written today...


“But you’re a woman,” the king said, staring at Electra in undisguised disbelief and contempt.

Electra didn’t let it bother her. She never had—and she’d had a lot of practice not letting it bother her. She straightened her shoulders (not that they needed straightening) and grinned at him. Confidence won a lot more battles than she’d expected when she was younger. “Yes, your highness, and I can wield a blade and ride a horse as well or better than any of these men, I’d wager.”

He was still skeptical. “A woman mercenary.”Read more... )

Title: Closed Circle
Word count: 1011
Rating: PG-13 for language
Prompt: 3WW: evident, illusion, tragic
Notes: So this isn't done, obviously, but it just sort of spilled out so I figured I'd post what I have. I don't know who they are or where they got there, and I only have a vague idea of where they are.

Also, I have lots of new writerly friends so I figure I should make my thoughts on comments a little more explicit! Any kind of comment on my writing is absolutely welcome. That ranges from "this is cool"-type comments to typo-picking to serious concrit. Concrit is love. Plus, if you give good concrit you will probably get added to my beta readers access group, which means you'll see a little more fiction from me, and what you see will be longer. That may or may not be an incentive ;)



“Where are we?”

“Calm down a minute, Kimmy, let me—”

“No, I will not calm down.” Kimmy grabbed Scott’s wrists and forcibly held him still. “Where the hell are we?”

“I don’t fucking know, okay?” He wrenched his wrists out of her grip and continued his pacing. “Just let me… let me figure this out.”Read more... )

Title: The Cave
Word count: 808
Rating: PG
Prompt: 3ww 1/19/11: descent, kill, surreal
Notes: I was going to have her find a weird skeleton, but then I forgot and I'd already wrapped up the story so I didn't want to rewrite it, so maybe that'll be a separate story. I don't have a name for this world yet. I might just call it "prison planet."


They were starting to get used to the cave. Or at least Carla was. It was a strange and surreal thing to have at the back of what appeared to be a museum, but they were lucky it was there—it was their only source of fresh water, and the fish and gulls, while not easy to catch, were their best source of food.Read more... )

Title: The Fishwife
Word count: 748
Rating: PG-13
Prompt: 3ww: plausible, taint, willingly
Notes: Sequel: The Mender

He always came home smelling of fish. It disgusted her, but there was nothing to be done, was there? At least he always brought a fish or two home for the table. They wouldn’t be getting much of anywhere if he didn’t. As it was, Nella still feared from time to time that they would have to end up selling their child to the Academy. She rested her hand protectively on her swelling belly and did her best to smile at her husband as he slapped two clean, gutted fish down on the table.Read more... )

Golden eyes. A sorceress. But she didn’t have time to judge. It was nearly nightfall, and if this woman could get her to safety, she would have to follow.

Yes, this is all I have written for 3WW this week. I know how the story starts, and sort of what happens after this, but at the moment, this is all I have... and it has all three words.

I was skating home from school when I saw the revival tent. I never could resist revivals. I usually didn't end up going for more than an hour, but there was something about the frenzied, endemically friendly activity of a revival that drew me in.Read more... )

Feedback, questions, and criticism welcome! I might continue this; any thoughts on what should happen next?
