Weekend Challenge: Queen of the Damned!

Hello and welcome to this weekend's challenge! Hopefully this is going to provide some interesting prompts for you! I've grabbed a book off my bookshelf, and if you're an Anne Rice fan, you're gonna love it! If you're not, I'm fairly sure there will still be some great lines that you can use in whichever fandom (or original fic if you prefer!) you like!



Here's how I'm working it:

The book has 448 pages, starting from page 3 (If you really want page 1, there's a poem there I can give you a line from, but the only thing on page 2 is the title, so if you choose that page, all you'll get is 'Queen of the Damned'!) so comment here with a number between 3 and 448 and one of these words: TOP, MIDDLE, BOTTOM.

I will then pick a sentence or phrase that seems inspiring from the relevant portion of the page you've asked for, and give it to you. Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to write at least 300 words, or create at least three icons/a banner from that prompt.

You may chose more than one prompt, and create in whatever fandom (or none) that you like! If you create something before Sunday midnight where you live, I will either write you a drabble in one of these fandoms (you choose which), make you an icon of your choice (any fandom or none; just point me there), or failing that, I'll happily add 100 words to one of my WIPs for you.

So come on down, step out and ask for a page and position *wink wink* ;-)

Alright, this sounds cool!

May I have three prompts:

Page #13 middle

Page #121 top

Page #333 bottom

13: Shall we prosper under their new reign?

121: The heat struck him in the chest, and he felt himself staggering backwards.

333: 'You're wrong,' I said angrily.

Good luck with at least one of them!

Bizarre that you picked this book, since yesterday was the 15th anniversary of Aaliyah's death.

I lost it at top/middle/bottom because don't you need one of each?

So um, my point...

Page 99 top please.
Page 199 middle please.
Page 399 bottom please.

Hopefully I can get something written this weekend!

That kind of coincidence happens a lot in my life so I'm hardly surprised, even though I didn't even realise it was the anniversary!


And if anyone was going to lose it, it would have to be you! 😄


Your choices are:


99: It's so easy to hear everything you say.


199: Did she stand up there in some grassy slope listening to the music of her troubadour?


399: His manner was impulsive rather than arrogant.


Here's hoping one of these works for you!

Thank you, and here you go:


41: 'You got to always know where it is,' Davis had said. 'Then stay away from it.'


227: Surely we had danced together in the dark snow-covered wood


301: How did we work our miracles?


I hope something sparks you from these!

I do not promise it will be anything... but could I get a line from page 27, in the middle?

No worries! With luck you'll be inspired.  If not, then maybe another time.


Your prompt is: It seemed beyond his ability to accept it.

May I please have the top of 89, the middle of 71, and the bottom of 45? Thank you!
haldoor
Aug. 27th, 2016 10:15 pm (UTC)
Of course you may! Here you go:

89: Come on, I'm hungry, my beloved. We must go.

71: People turned to look at him; he was talking to himself again

45: Sounded like a bunch of bull to her.

Good luck!

All right then, since you asked for it -

69 top and 69 bottom please :P :P :P heck, and 69 middle, even, I don't know how you'd work that position but someone's totally welcome to try.
haldoor
Aug. 27th, 2016 10:22 pm (UTC)

Let's give it a shot!


Top: Out of the sky, they'd come to get him.


Middle: Nothing here seemed particularly real to him, not even the chill.


Bottom: He did not want to hear them scream.


Hopefully at least  of them will inspire you!
