Weekend Challenge!

Hey everyone, how's your week been? Has it been as crazy as flipflop_diva's? She asked me if she could swap with someone because things haven't gone to plan for her (so send her some 'better week' vibes for next week if you can!) and I've swapped weekends with her to ease some stress.

Anyhow, it's a great excuse to use one of my brand new shiny icons (see above), and while we're there, here's a couple others I made at the time, though I kinda like the one I'm using best:



Anyway, feel free to use them if you want, but no pressure!

And now onto the challenge itself!

You have to excuse me on this one, because it's an off the cuff attempt at something, but I'm sure you guys will come up with something from the prompts, just like you always do! So I'm gonna go with music as that's the closest thing to hand. Yell out in a comment if you want a line from a lyric or a song title, and how many of each you'd like. I'll open up my iTunes and hit random, and deliver something back to you.

What you do with it is up to you, but link back here before Midnight Sunday PST and I'll reward you with either 100 words in one of my WIPs or a fun little icon. I'm sorry I can't manage drabbles and ficlets right now, but I'm already behind on too much. Give me a subject for your icon if you can - fandom or not; I'm especially fond of playing with humorous subjects, so if that works for you, it's all good. If not, I'm happy to add words to WIPs, which will give our wonderful comm more words too!

So come on down and hit me! ;-)

Thank you!

Okay, your first line is:

Second, you get:

Good luck! ;-)

Good luck! ;-)

Hope those are of those use to you!

Hee, I know that feeling... and you can always save them for later.

Your title is:
'I Never Told You' by Cobie Caillat

And your line is:
And he's a-thinking that he's gonna get lucky from Carrie Underwood's 'Before He Cheats'

Hope they inspire something! ;-)

Okay! Sorry for the delay, it was overnight here. ;-)

Title:
'Rain Down on Me' by Blue Rodeo

Line:
He can't find the one who was his friend from Warren Zevon's 'Hasten Down the Wind'

I have faith you'll come up with something! ;-)

I have a graduation party today so I don't know if I'll make it but hit me anyway.  Either a lyric or a title, both will work for me.

I'll give you both, and you can play if you have time, with whichever inspires the most!

Title:
'There Ain't Nothing 'bout You' by Brooks & Dunn

Line:
It's time to bring this ship into the shore from REO Speedwagon's 'Can't Fight This Feeling'

Good luck, and enjoy your party! ;-)

IDK if I'll manage much (fell off my bike and hurt myself, writing is kinda hard atm), but I'd like two song lines, please!

Also if you want help with rewards and someone wants Flash drabbles I can help :3
haldoor
Jun. 6th, 2015 11:18 pm (UTC)
Ouch! That's no good. I hope it isn't too serious and you heal fast!

And thank you! I'll let you know if anyone wants a Flash drabble! ;-)

Here are your lines:
I guess I should've kept my mouth shut from the Beach Boys' 'Don't Worry, Baby'
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow from Tears for Fears 'Mad World'

I hope those inspire you! ;-)
