I think it would be totally sexy to do something like fanfic100, but

A) I always go a little crazy like this when I'm busy at the end of a semester. Do you people remember the 24 hour Ficathon? Almost two years ago now. Time flies, ne? but my point is, crazy.

B) I don't find a lot of the prompts very compelling. Don't get me wrong, it's hard to write good prompts, cause they have to be not so vague that they aren't interesting, but not so specific that we all write the same story. The 20 Themes lists are good at this, because they're fandom specific.

C) Prince of Tennis general series, the only thing for which i might have 100 fics in me, is already claimed anyway. Also claims make me itchy. I what i want to do when I want to do it, and i don't see why you care if more than one person is writing you the hot hot inui/kaidoh. Whatever.

Conclusion: Probably not, although maybe i will see what the 20 Themes for PoT look like. If they are split up by school, and there are 20 themes for 5 schools...

anyway, back to grading. woot.

24 Birthday Themes?

students taking tests all day; grading caught up.

So now would be a good time to start setting up for my birthday this year? I'm actually off that week, and although i'll be flying home where I usually get very little fannish work done, we still need to celebrate in grand fandom style. I'm turning 24 this year, too, which is my second favorite number (after 22).

So, after pondering the theme stuff in my last post, and the lack of theme sets that interest me, and generally being in a sort of committment-less place, writing-wise, here's what I think we'll do.

Build Mousapelli a Birthday Theme Set

1. List one theme/prompt in the comments, and I will write something to be posted between April 19th (my birthday) and April 21st (Friday).

2. You only get one shot, so make it count! I'm shooting for 24 here, but if there's more that are entertaining, I might start combining them.

3. Don't list a fandom or a pairing, just the prompt. It's my birthday, and I can do what I want with them! Besides, if you're clever with your prompt, you won't NEED to list a fandom.

ready set go!
