WIP meme  
I've seen this meme going around: When you see this, share 3 random lines from 3 WIPs.

And I laughed, because WIPs? Oh yeah, I have those. I have those coming out of my ears *grins*. So here's three snippets for your perusal.


ONE

He’s shorter than Cap, and she thinks he’d be shorter still but he has big black boots on, with metal toecaps and buckles. Kate really likes those boots. If you kicked someone with those boots on it’d really hurt and if anyone stood on you it wouldn’t hurt at all. And they look cool.


TWO

Natasha watches him blinking into awareness and taking stock of the room before asking, “How are you feeling?” She says it in a way that makes it sound like she doesn’t care about the answer. Not because she doesn’t care, although she probably doesn’t, but because she already knows the answer and is asking to be polite, as if someone has told her that that’s what she’s supposed to do in this kind of situation.


THREE

“Wait, wait, wait, no,” says Tony. “Steve. No. Think about this. Think about the bobblehead dolls! This is the bobblehead dolls all over again, Steve. Helping people is a bad thing. We’ve established this. Steve!”

“He did get shot,” Bruce offers up.

I need all three of those in my life.... like, NOW.

Are you doing the Hawkeye Big Bang??
inkvoicesinkvoices on January 25th, 2015 08:25 pm (UTC)
One needs finishing and beta reading, two is pratically ready to post, and three...three is very long work in progress long fic of doom :S

The what big bang?!

Happy to beta-read One ... ;-)

Hawkeye Big Bang. Enigma and Andibeth (Find the Sea) and I are doing it. It's another author-artist match-up, so you may want to get in on the action ... ;-) Here's the link:

I have to get my act together and start writing for the Feb15 drafts-due deadline; I'm about 3,000 words in (minimum is 10k, but this will NOT be another Second Mouse/Locust Wind type opus). Luckily, I have a gazillion flights to be on between now and then!

Y'know, I'm gonna take you up on that. It has a kidlet so you can tell me if I've written a small person realistically :) Note to self: this is now the next one to finish!

Just had a look at it, but alas the deadlines are no good for me. I need to do halfamoon and some offline things in that time. It looks shiny though and I will definitely check out the finished works! If you need any cheerleading or story brainstorming feel free to give me a shout, but I wouldn't want to promise graphics.

Haha, you always say you're not going to write long fic and then BOOM, long fic happens ;p

Send it along via e-mail. Can't promise 24 hour turnaround but will try my best.

As for long fic - with SM and LW I kinda knew where they needed to end up, but I just managed to post one under 1400 words! ;-)
inkvoicesinkvoices on January 25th, 2015 10:13 pm (UTC)
No worries, there's no time frame or deadline for this one, and I haven't finished writing it so don't hold your breath for me sending it to you anytime in, say, the next month or two. I intend to tackle it after halfamoon is done :)

14,000 words just happened huh? lol

1400, not 14,000! ;-)

Ooh, I really like both #1 and #2! Can I ask about the context of the fics they're from?
inkvoices: avengers:natasha dropping ininkvoices on January 25th, 2015 09:31 pm (UTC)
Can you ask for me to tease you with fic? Sure ;)

Once upon a time I was filling a promptathon prompt on be_compromised for franztastisch for bikers and tattoos and I started writing One. Then I realised that it was completely not what she'd prompted at all and wrote a dystopian future AU in a tattoo shop instead. So One is an Avengers AU with bikers and tattoos. Only with Kate Bishop and the Avengers are Bikers Against Child Abuse.

Two is a promptathon fill for the last prompathon, for scribble_myname who requested Clint being a time traveller who feels the tug back to his own time and makes the choice to stay. Only I haven't quite followed that prompt either...
