Hi there! Recovered from NaNo yet, NaNo'ers? Anyone looking for a little inspiration for some weekend words?

If so, gimme two numbers, one of them from 1-10 and the other from 100.  So, tell me "I'll take 4/23" or "15/87".

I'll use the numbers to pull you a song lyric, a relationshippy quote, and a random image from a free stock image site.

Rewards for works of art or fics posted by midnight Sunday - let me know if I can make you an image, write a ficlet, or put words on a WIP!
Okay, bring on the numbers!

"Eclipse" by Pink Floyd

All you create
All you destroy
All that you do
All that you say
All that you eat
everyone you meet
All that you slight
everyone you fight
All that is now
All that is gone
All that's to come
And everything under the sun is in tune
But the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

I missed the weekend challenge :D (even if I have been consistently failing at it for months. The prompts keep piling up. orz)

I know how that goes - went weeks w/o completing one, and then last weekend I got over 3k in words from five single word prompts!

Here you go...

[Spoiler (click to open)]

"Killer Queen" - Queen
Drop of a hat she's as willing as
Playful as a pussy cat
Then momentarily out of action
Temporarily out of gas
To absolutely drive you wild, wild..
She's all out to get you...

I might be stuck making cookies all weekend, but let's try this anyway.

May I have 9/73 please?

Aw, I hope you're not stuck - but if so, then at least in the end.....cookies!

"The Air that I Breathe" - The Hollies (gah. love this song)
What more could I ask?
There's nothing left to be desired.
Peace came upon me and it leaves me weak.
So sleep, silent angel go to sleep.

Quote:
“Encouragement requires empathy and seeing the world from your spouse's perspective. We must first learn what is important to our spouse. Only then can we give encouragement. With verbal encouragement, we are trying to communicate, "I know. I care. I am with you. How can I help?" We are trying to show that we believe in him and in his abilities. We are giving credit and praise.”

Nah, I love baking but sometimes it can be overwhelming. But you're right - there's always the bonus of having cookies in the end!

Although I don't think I've ever heard that song, I ran with the lyrics. Am saving the others for later since they're awesome prompts.

Such a lovely fic! Congrats on the words, and a tribute to what a comfort our four-legged buddies can be.

Glad you like the prompts- the middle one made me think of your triad. ;)

Thanks! Recent events with my moose cat have made me a little more introspective lately.

YES, it definitely fits them, especially with the fic I've been working on. :D Definitely tucking that one away to work on soon.

Okay, I'm getting deja vu. I'm pulling the song lyrics from a playlist on Apple music, and I'm getting the feeling I dealt you this exact prompt before, lol... is that possible? If so lemme know and I'll pull another one.

I like it, though...

"Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me" - U2
You don't know how you took it
You just know what you've got
Oh Lordy, you've been stealing
From the thieves and you got caught
In the headlights of a stretch car
You're a star.

"No Blue Skies" - Lloyd Cole
You want to leave me baby be my guest
All I'm gonna do is cry
And then I'm gonna find me someone else
And tear the stars out of the sky.

Absolutely - here you go!

"More than This" - Roxy Music
I could feel at the time
There was no way of knowing
Fallen leaves in the night
Who can say where they're blowing
As free as the wind
And hopefully learning
Why the sea on the tide
Has no way of turning

More than this, there is nothing
More than this, tell me one thing
More than this, there is nothing

I blended a stargate image with your inspiration photo and threw it into adobe spark - I chose an odd size but I was curious to see some of the text/font suggestions.

Absolutely - Here they are:

"Say You Love Me" - Fleetwood Mac
'Cause when the loving starts, and the lights go down,
And there's not another living soul around,
Then you woo me until the sun comes up,
And you say that you love me.
