Weekend Challenge: Words of Love and Hate

bunnyheart
There is no middle ground in this weekend's challenge...

For this challenge, I want to incite some stories with a little serrano chile heat (i.e. lots) in them. It's been.. that kind of a week when namby-pamby and nice and sweet ain't cutting it. You know?

So respond with "Hit me with your best shot..." and I'll give a bunch of prompts -- two quotes/lyrics of love, two quotes/lyrics of hate pulled from the web and my iPhone music player. That's eight, count them, eight opportunities to put your darlings through heaven/hell. Or not, up to you.

Whether you write or not, I hope you have a great weekend!

PS - I made the heart by hand and when I posterized it, a bunny kind of appeared within the heart. Entirely accidental bunny, lol..... (that's probably redundant)

This is so good! I know it's good, because I have never read a word of HP and yet it still rings true and is very relatable. Especially love the end - oh, yeah, have been there. That feeling of 'oh, hell...this is so not convenient!' ;). Well done!

We are in very different fandom worlds, but I'd love to write a reward fic for you. Do you watch any of these?

Sherlock, Fringe, Trek, Torchwood, LOST, Supernatural, H50.

Thank you :) *blush* it's my first HP fic and I haven't read any of the books or watched any of the movies in a long time. ^^; I'm glad you liked it, thank you for the awesome prompts :) :)

I just started watching Sherlock :) (and am loving every disturbed minute so far)
