Weekend Challenge: Senses Working Overtime

With apologies to those who don't remember XTC, I pretty much had to steal their song title for this Weekend Challenge! It's all about the five senses we best know and love: Sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch.
Just comment here that you are in, and I will give you a set of prompts that include a sound (an actual sound, as long as LJ will let me embed, we will see) and a random image.

After that, i'll include a list (since we don't, thank goodness, have smell-o-vision on the web) of one taste, one type of scent and one texture/sensation.

Use the prompts togther in one fic or artwork, or maybe write a short ficlet for each. You can pick from or combine them as you'd like and however they happen to inspire.

Anyone who links back here with either 200+ words or an icon/sigtag/artwork will get a reward - I'll make you an icon back, write you a ficlet, or put words on a WIP.

Okay, who is in?!

Aw, crud -- audio embed doesn't seem to want to work on comments. I really hoped it would, will do a little more research. Meantime, here's a popup link....

I wonder if I can combine this with the crossover fic and last weekend's prompt. I'll give it a try...
Would it help to know the crossover or should we wing it lol.

I'm using a randomizer, since there are so many variable. Let's wing it for the first round - but if nothing inspires, I think I have enough prompts to try something more specific.

Sound: Happy bleeps and bloops

Alright...I've killed this challenge and two others in one short fic....almost 4k (like 8 words short, lol) Fitting in the sensory selections was a bit of a challenge...but I think I did okay.

gen rated crossover with Matt Murdock (Daredevil), Bruce Wayne (Gotham) and Shades Alvarez (Luke Cage).

Inspired by the too wet and windy weather happening here this weekend.

Sweet! It's always a pleasure to see a prompt turn into a story. :). Very glad this worked out for you, and let me know if I can do a reward!
