I am in charge of the Weekend Challenge in this last beautiful weekend in May which is a three day Memorial Day weekend for my fellow Americans :):) and I decided we needed prompts inspired by girl detectives--WOO HOO!!

I chose these awesome lines from the greatest girl detectives out there:  Nancy Drew, Susan Sand, Veronica Mars, Joan Watson, Miss Marple and Dame Frevisse.  (And yes Miss Marple, Joan Watson and Sister Frevisse aren’t technically girls, but they were once, so it still counts—in the world of detective fiction of course )

Choose a number between 1 and 25 and I will give you an epically badass yet girly line that I hope inspires you.

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!!!

You got it, and it's my favorite Veronica Mars quote:

“They gave me a choice. I could stand by my dad, or stand by Duncan and my dead best friend's family. I chose Dad. It's a decision I live with every day. And you want to know the kicker? I don't even know what's true anymore. Maybe everyone else is right. Maybe Dad screwed up the investigation. Maybe I gave up my circle of friends - my life - over an error in Dad's judgment.”

Good luck :):)

Well.. that's deep.

So, who was right? Now, I need to know!!

Veronica Mars was a great show--it only lasted three seasons but it's totally worth watching. And the father/daughter Mars duo for the win:):)

Awesome idea! I would take #15, please.
May. 25th, 2018 03:10 pm (UTC)
And an awesome Veronica Mars quote--WOO HOO!!

“Check you out, Veronica Mars. You're like a rocker chick now. You and I, we'd have a lot of fun together. Yeah, if, um, if I wasn't dead and stuff.”

Good luck :):)

I'm pleased to say that this prompt did lead to fic! Took a while, but I wrote a little Castiel/Charlie Bradshaw friendship fic with it. :)

Good for you :):)
May. 25th, 2018 03:07 pm (UTC)
10, please!
May. 25th, 2018 03:12 pm (UTC)

"Yeah, I'm wondering who tried to kill us. In fact, I'm kind of freaking out about it!"

Good luck :)
May. 25th, 2018 03:21 pm (UTC)
15 please...and her's hoping I actually WRITE and not just edit
May. 25th, 2018 03:29 pm (UTC)
I hope this inspires:

“Check you out, Veronica Mars. You're like a rocker chick now. You and I, we'd have a lot of fun together. Yeah, if, um, if I wasn't dead and stuff.”

Good luck :):)

not the best use of a prompt, perhaps...but it works for me. Just a snippet...with no need for warnings or spoilers ;)

They had said music room, but there were no notes wafting through the house save for music playing in someone’s bedroom far above him. He guessed it was from Faith’s room, for although the dark-haired Slayer was no rocker chick, she could belt out a tune when she chose to, and it sounded like her voice being muffled by the thick walls of stone and wood. That girl was a lot of fun and Jagger enjoyed the opportunity to hang out with her now and then.

No one was in the weight room or in the swimming pool, and for the moment, though something bubbled away in a covered pot on the stove, no one was in the kitchen either. The lawyer’s door was closed, the room behind it devoid of even the hum of a computer or lights, and from the family room quiet child voices could be heard giggling in whatever game the triplets were engaged in while cartoons played in the background. A quick peek into the room revealed that Jesse was watching over them as she folded a day’s worth of sheets and towels into piles for redistribution to their proper rooms later. The woman did not see him and though Jagger was tempted, at first, to ask if she had seen their visitor, a sound from behind, the removal of the lid from a crystal carafe followed by the sweet aroma of some pungent red liqueur, announced the presence of someone in the library.

Someone whose scent was unfamiliar to the Sentinel and thus worth investigating.

Lovely work on this :):)
Aug. 19th, 2018 05:45 am (UTC)
thank you :)
May. 25th, 2018 03:23 pm (UTC)
What? No Jane Rizzoli? :D

May I have number 9 please? Thanks!
May. 25th, 2018 03:36 pm (UTC)
Oh man :):)

“I’ve fought imaginary elves that were stronger than you!"

Good luck and if I do another Girl Detective Weekend challenge,I'll be sure to include Rizzoli and Isles, Laura Holt from Remington Steele, Nora Charles and Trixie Belden :):)

Oooh... I have the perfect (female) detective for that quote, too. TWO of them actually. Hmm... might even work as my rare pair since I almost never write the two of them together on their own (they're usually keeping the boys from murdering each other).

Ah, no biggie. I watched the first season of the show when it originally aired not realizing it had been based on a series of novels and then proceeded to binge read the books. I'm kind of obsessed with Jane, Maura, and Gabriel. :D

And for once I've finished a challenge! WOOHOO!

It Takes Two

Excellent work! I can offer a reward in the form of a drabble or words to my WIP--please let me know :):)
May. 30th, 2018 08:31 pm (UTC)
Thank you! And add words to a WIP for me!
May. 25th, 2018 04:03 pm (UTC)
Awesome theme!! I'll take 6 please! Thank you so much!
May. 25th, 2018 05:06 pm (UTC)
This is the greatest Nancy Drew quote--EVER!!

“There's only one thing left to do. I’m glad I wore pants."

Good luck :):)
May. 25th, 2018 06:33 pm (UTC)
Could I try 8 and 21 please?
May. 25th, 2018 06:53 pm (UTC)
Not a prob :):)

This is an awesome Nancy Drew quote: “Spend time at the gym to build upper body strength. Detective work may require fending off a vicious hair pulling."

This Susan Sand quote gives me shivers: As she began to get closer to the answers, the thought of being alone in this was becoming more and more terrifying.

Good luck :):)

How did I miss that you posted this? I'm sorry for not responding in a timely manner--lovely work on this :):)
May. 25th, 2018 08:13 pm (UTC)
May I have 5 & 18 please?

Thank you!
May. 25th, 2018 08:19 pm (UTC)
You may :)

First, a classic Joan Watson line: “And you brought him here to help you make sense of the equations you found in the victim's house. I get that. What I don't get, is why he isn't wearing a shirt.”

Second, from Veronica Mars: “There's a woman who saw my mom get out of her car and get in a van with a 'mysterious stranger."

Good luck :)
