[stock] when in doubt wear red

i don't have feelings and i don't hold hands

So. Read House of M, had a mild nervous breakdown of amazing at 3 in the morning, and have since caught up with the world of comics re. the kids I care about. Am I good or am I good? Collapse )

I'm flirting with continuing my comics adventures, but meanwhile I'm juggling too much TV (have got to finish Kings so that I can start watching Carnivàle) and too many books (Master and Margarita, which I've had no time to sit down with and is suffering for it; Enough About Love, which is fortuitously quick by compare and SO FRENCH; Anno Dracula, which is a Victorian AU where Count Dracula becomes Queen Victoria's queen consort, which is all you need to know about that, I think; A Discovery of Witches, which I snitched from my aunt because Oxonian library feelings!! and am since regretting because the prose is an actual embarrassment—why does anyone think first person is a good idea ever? Spare me. Oh, and I'm thinking about procuring Gormenghast—never mind the sheer terror of the stack that's half listing by my bookshelves and half still lurking unpacked in boxes downstairs, ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh help) and too many writing projects (MOTHER OF GOD, BRAIN, I'M ALREADY JUGGLING DOPPELGÄNGERS AND TRYING TO MAYBE NEGOTIATE SOME SERIAL KILLER ROYALS ON AN ALCHEMICAL-LODESTONE MOUNTAIN, I DO NOT HAVE TIME TO RETURN TO THEATRE!AU—oh god, I'm writing the precursor/prologue to the Guinevere project and it's delicious character business to gnaw on but also the messiest, roughest draft that I've ever written in my entire life, no shit; this project feels immense in ways that are both scary and exciting), and that just makes me want...to write all the short fiction! Practicable choices, yeah yeah!

(Besides, I have to learn to plot without porn for at least a bit. Oh, that. Gosh, that's becoming foreign, innit.

I wish I was kidding more.)

So I'm bringing this noise back:

MAKEOUT MEME: Pick a pairing from any fandom/rpf, and come up with a location and/or situation, and I will write you between 50 and 250 words* a commentfic about the kiss that happened in that context.
*lol word limit; we know better

Prompt me, mes enfants.
