Probably this is [livejournal.com profile] insight2's fault, but while I was brushing my teeth last night it occurred to me that it would be interesting (one word for it) to develop an angelic language, now that Skanr has been my practice run for language construction. What I've been thinking of is a language that is Romance-like in the sense that angels use different forms of the copulative (to be) for the created world and the divine, to express the distinction they'd probably make between essence versus state. Or would they just see the entire world as a collection of things in a state of being or becoming or changing? And how would the near-infinite think about the bounded and contained, anyway? *ponders these things*

In similar SPN news, I wrote one more drabble, In terra aliena (In a Strange Land) for the [livejournal.com profile] deancastiel drabble challenge.


SUNDAY DRABBLEVENTURES

By executive order, I have decided that on a semiregular basis (maybe every other Sunday, or however often I feel like it), I will contribute to weekend sloth and work avoidance by writing drabbles on request. When requests are open, I will note which fandoms I'm writing in; all you need to do is name your fandom, character/pairing, and prompt, and I will write 100 words of something. This post will be the prompt and response post, for purposes of consolidation.

.drabble prompts: Leave me a fandom/character/pairing and a prompt (SGA, SPN, Bones, and I guess I will take Merlin*) and I will see what I can do.

4.26 DRABBLEVENTURES NOW OPEN

In unrelated news, Iron & Wine's The Shepherd's Dog is completely awesome and I have been listening to it obsessively.

* = I like Morgana a lot and wish something heavy would land on Uther. And I like how Arthur is kind of a jerk, but basically a decent guy. Also, I am deeply amused and, dare I say it, somewhat gratified, by the fact that the incantation languages involve Old English. A lot of this is because the Anglo-Saxons really did not like teh magics.


*le sigh* Sunday is over, alas! Drabbles closed for now.
aesc: (pout)
Yay, drabbles!

Mass disclaimer: I own none of it.

Stuff in parentheses are additional info., warnings, whatever. And for some reason, there are several AUs this time around.

aesc: (Default)
Because I am too extravagantly lazy to do two separate posts, drabbles and icons both this time around.

Part I: drabbles! Actually, a lot of them are slightly over 100 words so they are technically not drabbles... My brevity seems to have left me.

Mass disclaimer: Absolutely none of the characters below belong to me.
Warnings: Nothing horrifying or graphic follows. Warning for first-timer in writing House-fic.

aesc: (fbi)
As has become my custom whenever I suffer from the inability to write, I ask people to request drabbles in any fandom and with any prompt of their choosing. Here's the newest round.

aesc: (map)
As I did a couple weeks ago when I had writer's block, I held another round of drabble requests for the flist and now present the results below for public entertainment and edification. For the SGA people, in my ignorance I have probably mercilessly slaughtered your favorite character(s), and for that I apologize (seriously, I feel like the biggest clod writing SGA). And, as before, I provide a mass disclaimer:

Battlestar Galactica belongs to SciFi&c., not me.
Harry Potter belongs to the almighty JK Rowling, not me.
Law & Order: Criminal Intent belongs to NBC&c., not me.
Lord of the Rings belongs to the Tolkien Estate and New Line, not me.
The Magnificent Seven belongs to MGM &c., not me.
Stargate: Atlantis belongs to SciFi &c., not me.
Without a Trace belongs to CBS &c., not me.

Spoilers are noted in the description, as are pertinent ratings/warnings and pairings.

And there you have it. Now on with the drabbles, arranged by fandom:

Whew! Lots of drabbles this time around. Delightful, tremendous fun.
aesc: (Default)
Below are a whole bunch of drabbles I wrote in response to prompts provided by various denizens of my flist, and I post them here for mass entertainment. Before continuing, I should warn you SG:A-type people that this is the first time ever that I've written SG:A-type things; to make matters worse, I've not read much fanfic and I'm behind on episodes--so the quality may be questionable at best. Also, I should probably provide a disclaimer for all of the following.

Mass disclaimer:
Lord of the Rings belongs to the Tolkien Estate and New Line, not me.
The Magnificent Seven belongs to MGM &c., not me.
Stargate: Atlantis belongs to SciFi &c., not me.
Without a Trace belongs to CBS &c., not me.

Spoilers are noted in the description, as are pertinent ratings/warnings and pairings.

And there you have it. Now, on with the drabbles, arranged by fandom:

SGA

Addendum

For [livejournal.com profile] tanzy, who lobbied for D/M and the following quotation as a prompt: "We need not to be let alone. We need to be really bothered once in a while. How long is it since you were really bothered? About something important, about something real?" (Ray Bradbury): Something Real: D/M, PG )

----------
Whew! That was fun :) Am out of town for a bit, but when I get back, I might do this again. Drabbles... they are so seductive.
