Well, that went well. Apparently, throw enough genres in a blender and my brain will do some strange places -_-; Um. Yes. Heh. So, the Original Character Meme ended up producing sketched ideas for the following:

- A crime-solving embittered skaldic lawspeaker with a dark past, in a Viking Crime Fiction story.

- A librarian-scholar with an interest in prophecies and apocrypha running afoul of a divination cult in 1870s Britain, in a Steampunk Bibliomancy story.

- An amnesiac ship's AI who believes it was originally one or several consciousnesses stripped by an alien monolith and strewn throughout the cosmos, in a Stitchpunk Space Odyssey story.

- A horrified survivor of a cybernetic instrumentality event, in a Sci-Fi Cybertech Horror story (came kind of close to Galactic Duality, so possibly some cheating there).

- An alternate Orpheus lost aboard the Asphodel Space Station searching for a guide deeper into the Hades space sector, in a Noir Space Opera Mythology story (again, kind of more fanfic than original, whoops).

And finally:

- A pair of supernatural bakers in 1877 Constantinople (a domovoi and a djinn) who get caught in the middle of supernatural murders and spy drama as the Russo-Turkish war builds to a close around them, in an Urban Fantasy Bakery Spy Drama. Because why not?
For [livejournal.com profile] owleyes_arisen, who actually wanted dragon!Ysidro. I couldn't quite manage that, went with a Rakshasa instead, and then ... kind of got caught up with the tragic romance instead of the worldbuilding? My apologies -_-;

Short ... random burble, really, for [livejournal.com profile] oneiriad, who asked the following:

You mentioned in your previous post, how enemy mine hits you right in the gut. Care to elaborate on that?

Enemy mine, for those that don't know, is the TV tropes name for situations in fiction where enemies are forced to work together for a common goal, usually survival, sometimes to defeat common enemies (it's also a fabulous science fiction book and film, look it up, I love it). And, um, this seriously gets me in the id-place, so possibly this will not be very coherent -_-;

Short Tony Stark meta for [livejournal.com profile] nihstel, who asked me the following question:

When Tony Stark looks at things, what does he see?

Okay. Firstly, I am not an authority on this. And second, I'm presuming you mean what he sees that makes him act the way he does, what he sees that makes him Tony Stark and not someone else. Because he sees the normal things, he does, a car is a car and a person is a person, he sees that part of them. Everyone does, to an extent. But what Tony sees that makes him different, that makes him Tony ...

Again, just putting them here as they're finished. 5 sentence(-ish) ficlets apiece:

Dynamist (Miles Vorkosigan, Vorkosigan saga). For the prompts: Honour, Backwards, Adventure, Gold, Lightning. (I've only read two books, accuracy questionable)

Chiaroscuro (Harry Dresden and John Marcone, Dresden Files). For the prompts: Moonlight, Starlight, Sunlight, Candlelight, Streetlight. (Thematic, I rather enjoyed these ones)

Ragged Edges (Loki and Tony Stark, Avengers movieverse). For the prompts: Free fall, Scars, Frost, Dance, Future. (Edged and glittery, for some reason)

Men To Gods Shall Speak (Phil Coulson, Avengers movieverse). For the prompts: Trust, Faith, Loyalty, Honour, Belief. (Phil wanted to speak tonight, apparently)

Sparks in the Circuits (JARVIS, Avengers movieverse). For the prompts: Honour, Transient, Beauty, Dragons, Battle. (Not even remotely sentence fics. Lets all pretend JARVIS isn't my runaway favourite, yes?)
