September Poll

PLEASE READ THE WHOLE POST FOR INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE ANSWERING THE POLL!


The poll contains all the suggestions from last month's poll. We have also added suggestions from earlier polls and made up a few more to make up the numbers.

Pick which theme you would like to see us feature for OCTOBER. As usual, we are not going to explain what each theme is; they may or may not be what you think! In the box beneath the main poll, we’d like you to suggest the theme(s) YOU would like to see for JANUARY (yes, January!).

These suggestions will then form next month’s poll in a mixed up kind of way* along with at least one other suggestion that the mods will throw in themselves. In the event that we have less than 10 suggestions, the mods will fill in the rest to make up the numbers. If your theme suggestion isn’t picked, then you are welcome to suggest it again in other polls.

Remember: your suggestions for themes should be broad so that it’s easy for us to make up 20 prompts. For instance, ‘teacup’ is too narrow, but ‘Alice in Wonderland' works (more or less). Please expand on your suggestion in the comments to this post.

* We reserve the right to reject, tweak or combine any suggestions that are unsuitable, inappropriate for everyone or unworkable for us in any way. This might be because the suggested theme is a) too narrow and we can’t think of 20 prompts, b) too similar to a previous theme, c) because we don’t understand your suggestion or d) because it’s just plain unpleasant (i.e. sexist, racist, homophobic etc).

The poll will probably close around 8PM, (i.e. when I remember), on Friday, 30th September 2016. If there is a tie, the mods will choose the theme to do first from the winners and the other winner(s) will follow the month(s) after and there will be no poll for that month(s).

Onto the good stuff:

To Have And Then To Have Not

September Week Four

Hello Fag Enders! Some prompts this week from The Maltese Falcon...

1. "Keep on riding me and they're gonna be picking iron out of your liver."
2. "Haven't you tried to buy my loyalty with money and nothing else?"
3. "All we've got is that maybe you love me and maybe I love you."
4. "Maybe I do. I'll have some rotten nights after I've sent you over, but that'll pass."
5. "What do you suggest? We stand here and shed tears and call each other names... Or shall we go to Istanbul?"

Enjoy!

September Week Three

Hello Fag Enders! A bit of a twist this week, as we take some prompts from one of the greatest film parodies of all time (or something like that anyway), from the late and great Victoria Wood, who gives us a version of Brief Encounter. Some absurd quotes for you:

1. "I'd gone in to Wilberton as usual on a Thursday, to change my library book and order a coconut."
2. "Shall I hit you over the head with a carp?"
3. "I daren't miss it; I'm expecting a kipper!"
4. "Those that don't ask don't win no parsnips, that's for sure."
5. "Oh, not at all. We're very devoted. It's just that she can be rather vicious and she takes drugs."

And a video, in case you've never seen it.

September Week Two

Time for a bit more black and white magic here on Fag Ends, with a set of prompts inspired by Casablanca...

1. As Time Goes By
2. We'll Always Have Paris
3. "I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."
4. It Had to Be You
5. "Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine."

Enjoy!

A sticky situation

Setting: AtS S5, post Damage
Rating: PG-13 (in case I missed Spike or Faith mouthing off)
Prompt: the sticky end of the lollipop
Words: 600ish

Left off tags since I'm not sure I can create tags? Let me know if I need to edit.

A month of classic black and white movies.

The Elements will follow in November.

Intimations of Mortality

Very close to the wire, a ficlet for this month's prompts. Forgive its crapiness, my fic muscles are really stiff (as it were) from lack of use.

Setting: Late BtVS season 7, pre-LMPTM
Rating: PG
For the prompt:
I’m shying from the light
I always loved the night
And now you offer me eternal darkness
- One Caress

300(ish) words
Author's note: I'm sure I've written this exact same ficlet before, if not in so many words. Better than nothing, though, right?

August Week Four

Depeche Mode have been covered by a whole range of artists, so here are five of them:


1. Never Let Me Down Again – Smashing Pumpkins
2. Leave in Silence – Marsheaux
3. A Question of Lust -Aha
4. To Have and to Hold – Deftones
5. Master and Servant – Nouvelle Vague


Have a listen under the cut!Collapse )

August Week Three

B Sides are a bit of an outdated concept these days, but Depeche Mode have had some great ones!

However, this is besides the point. These songs are only your guide to Spuffyness!

1. Sea of Sin
2. Flexible
3. In Your Memory
4. (Set Me Free) Remotivate Me
5. Now This Is Fun


Tunes under the cut for the interestedCollapse )

Dangerous

Another drabble set in the same time and spirit as the last one, kind of a sequel. The wonderful DM lyrics didn't leave me any chance not to write this...and I wish I had more time to do the other ones as well.

Unbeta-ed, I hope there are no glaring mistakes or terrible weirdnesses (otherwise don't hesitate to tell me so I can correct!).

Also, whoever nominated 'see me feel me/touch me heal me' ( http://sb-fag-ends.livejournal.com/493073.html ) at the wicked_awards - thank you so, so much! I was stunned into a very unflattery look of my mouth hanging open for a long while!

So, here goes:

Title: Dangerous
Creator: freecat15
Prompt:  5. Dangerous
              The way you leave me wanting more
              Dangerous
              That’s what I want you for
              Dangerous
              When I am in you arms
              Dangerous
              No, I won’t come to harm
              - Dangerous
Setting: BtVS s6, around DMP
Rating: PG15
Length: 100 words (plus title)
