Weekend Challenge: Randomness Abounds--fanfic edition :)

It’s Mother’s Day weekend here in the USA, and you would think this Weekend Challenge would be maternally based, but think again!

I decided to do a challenge that’s more fandom related, so here’s the scoop:  I have randomly chosen twenty five of my favorite bookmarked stories at my AO3 account and I will give you a random quote from that story.  Just to let you know, my fandoms are pretty varied:  Sherlock Holmes (BBC Sherlock, Elementary), Star Trek AOS, Supergirl, The Flash, MCU Spider-Man, Game of Thrones and Hawaii Five-0.

Just choose a number between 1 and 30 and I will give you a random quote/line from the story—there are multiple quotes for each story, so don’t be shy.  Please be as creative as you can--drabbles/fics can be as long as you want but at least 200 words and you can do any sort of art work the spirit moves you    Just post your work by Thursday night at 11:59pm EST, and you'll be golden.  Lastly, HAVE FUN!!!

I am not creative in any way with artwork, so if you want an icon, I will have to ask for help, but I can give you a drabble or add to my WIP.  And if you have any questions, please ask :):)
