I sent the final fic for a prompt that I've claimed to my beta today so I'm feeling quite accomplished. Now I just have to decide what to do about That Picture. I desperately want to write a fic for it but none of the prompts are really calling out to me. I love elements of a lot of them but none of them seem to want to form a proper story in my head. I'm thinking I might just self prompt and my prompt will literally be "That Picture and the caption it was originally given."

It's such an amazing picture that the moment I saw it I started writing the text to go with it in my head, even before the fest was announced. There isn't much back story to what I want to write, or indeed much follow on story, but the words for that scene just want to be written. Is that too boring? Is it too much like what's already there? I have no idea, but I might just write it anyway and see if what comes out is worth working with.

In completely separate news I read Draco Malfoy: Toilet Supremo by [ profile] who_la_hoop the other day and I don't think I've ever laughed so hard at a fanfic in my life. It's completely hilarious, fantastically well written and just altogether completely wonderful. I know it's several months old and I'm extremely late to the party, but I just couldn't let it pass without a mention.

Finally to complete the randomness I was tidying up my LJ today and remembered that last time I delved into writing fanfic, which was several years ago, I wasn't actually completely useless at writing one-shots. I managed to produce Memories, which despite recent success with one-shots still holds the title of the shortest thing I've ever written. My mission now is to best that. I feel a fic coming on...

I think a piece of writing that literally just deals with That Picture and the caption it was originally given could be fabulous. Go for it and see how you get on!

Toilet Supremo, oh, god, Toilet Supremo. That was my best birthday ever, I think! LOL. And what do I get who_la in return? A Benedict Cumberbatch calendar adorned with photos of Nic Cage *snort*

Haha that's hilarious. I love who_la's stories and I hope she writes more.

I think I will go for it and see what happens. I'm thinking it will be quite short, but I often think that and then look back 10k words later and wonder what went wrong.

Are you going to finish 'What Can I Do?'

Yes definitely! I'm still in two minds over the chapter 17 that I've written but I think I'll just go for it and post tomorrow. :)
