Notes: This has been lingering and lingering for years in a state of "almost but not quite finished". Life (and academics) kept getting in the way. But finally I got it done! I'm happy that it finally gets to see the light of day!  I'll also say that I'm a little bit mean to poor Edwin in this fic. I promise I won't do that to him again!

The key word here is mule-headed )
quaggy: Elizabeth looking back at Mr. Darcy (Mugs)
Hello, it's me. I was wondering if after these years you'd like to read some Quaggy fic? Okay, seriously, I have been writing again and might have something to show for it soon. In the meantime, I have drabbles. A long time ago, so long she's probably forgotten, [livejournal.com profile] applepips16 gave me a few prompts for 100 word drabbles for Life With Derek. I had ideas for them right away, but the time to finish them? Not so much. Though it has taken a long time, here they finally are.

Notes: I swear I think I let this one cook too long. I'm just happy I'm finally done with it. I first got the idea a couple of years ago after reading one too many "Derek buys a pregnancy test" fics.


It's all about the right attitude... )

When you see this, post an excerpt from as many random works-in-progress stories as you like. Who knows? Maybe inspiration will burst forth and do something, um, inspiration-y.

Well, [livejournal.com profile] zinke  did it, so I guess that means I should too. Especially since I have a Great Big List of Doom that I'm trying to finish.  This is also something of a three month status report.  I'm not nearly as far along this list as I'd like to be.

So, for most I have a sentence or two, but with fics that are longer/closer to done, I've actually included full paragraphs. For those that are curious, the last time I did this meme, out of the 10 fic I gave snippets for, one I totally gave up on and four I actually finished and posted. The rest are on this list.

The UPDATED Great List of Doom

West Wing )

Avatar: The Last Airbender )

Life With Derek )

Life )

Sports Night )

Everything Else )

Yeah, it's still a ridiculous list, isn't in?  I think part of my problem is that, in addition to all the real life distractions, I've been working on at least six of these fic at a time.  Maybe if I just concentrate on one or two, I'll start completing more!

And, as always, any questions, comments and/or encouragement is greatly appreciated!!

Notes:  This was inspired by the early chapters of [livejournal.com profile] unoriginal_liz's brilliant How Emily Davis Got Her Groove Back, back when I was wondering what happened to Casey.  Liz did explain what was happening with Casey in a way that was much better than what I have here, but the idea stayed with me, until I finally decided to write it down.

Yeah, sure he didn't mean to eavesdrop... )

Notes: As part of that prompt meme, [livejournal.com profile] pheobep had asked for "Sally/Noel". Now my problem was that I had only seen a few episodes with Sally and none with Noel. (I've read plenty of fanfic with both, but that doesn't really count.) So my solution was to do a bait-and-switch. So while this LOOKS like a Sally/Noel fic... it's actually Casey/Derek. :-)

Noel was by far the most perfect boyfriend that Sally ever had )

Rating: PG
Notes: [livejournal.com profile] unoriginal_liz gave me the prompt "new and improved frozen dinners". I liked the prompt and I even like the premise I took, but I don't think this fic is my best. (My first warning should have been when I decided I couldn't get the idea down to 100 words.) Sorry, Liz! I still have the Dan/Natalie prompt to go. I'll make it up to you!

Now entering the disaster zone... )

Back when I posted this meme, [livejournal.com profile] pheobep and [livejournal.com profile] unoriginal_liz gave me some great prompts. Even though I still have more prompts to go, these are the are the last of the 100 word drabbles I'm going to write. Apparently, my writing skills have failed me, because I just couldn't get the others to work. So, for the rest of your prompts, you guys are just going to have to deal with longer drabbles/ficlets instead. I know you're disappointed. :-)

Hey. What are you doing up so late? )
quaggy: Elizabeth looking back at Mr. Darcy (Mugs)
You guys are all completely wonderful!! Both the prompts and the response has been fantastic. I've finished four and have at least three more almost ready to go! Even better, my newly returned muse has been helping my longer fics along too. Not bad for less than 24 hours! Thank you all so much!

Next up, I have Harry Potter for [livejournal.com profile] farmerliz, yet another DLM from [livejournal.com profile] unoriginal_liz's same prompts, at least two West Wing for [livejournal.com profile] kiss_me_cassie and a little Josh\Donna for [livejournal.com profile] gatsbyfan. If I haven't named your prompt, expect it in Batch 3. (Unless the writing muse is REALLY active!) If have a prompt you'd like me to take a shot at, go here.
