Welcome to the weekend! I hope everyone gets a little 'me' time in - and some room for creativity, too. Speaking of which, since work has deep fried my brain lately I had to get a little creative about coming up with prompt ideas. And so I've pulled together a list of short phrases - some of them lines from a particular sitcom I happened to watch this week, and others the headlines of emails in my email boxes.

I have enough for two prompts each - so if you are in then just give a shout to say so! I'll randomize the list and give you two prompts. Use them however inspires; feel free to interpret them, reinterpret them, stick all the letters in *another* randomizer and come up with anagrams - whatever works for you!

Achieve some fic or a piece of art with them by Thursday PM and I will write you a ficlet, make you icons or put words on a WIP.

Who's in?!

Maybe I should try that. Or caffeine. Gah.

Okay, here is what the randomizer gave you:

#1 Comfortable. Sexy. Cool.

Person 1: "What are you doing?"
Person 2: "I have no idea."

The middle boss came back from Costco the other day with a bag of Skittles & Starburst and a bag of mixed Hershey candy bars. And I am keeper of the candy so... yeah.

These prompts though... I can easily see them working together in a very amusing way. THANK YOU!

Lol... I had similar thoughts. Great fic minds. ;)

It only took me close to three months but it's filled! Didn't turn out to be quite as amusing as I had first thought (probably because I steered away from the dynamic duo and went another direction), but I like it.

Day by Day

All righty.... good luck! I think I'll have extras, too, if anyone wants others.

1 - We know what you like.

2- Paul and the homeless dogs.

managed to fit both prompts into a little NPC interaction between my clones ;) just a snippet:

Trace shrugged, apparently the only other of those seated here to have seen the stranger in the music room at the end of the corridor. He’d been in too much of a hurry to run errands to corner the man or question him, and apparently Holden had not spoken to him either. “Sitting there unattended…meeting with Linds or Murdock maybe? Not exactly her type…”

“You’re kidding, right?” snorted Avner. “She doesn’t have a type…”

“Sure she does…we all know what she likes…brooding, intense, and down on their luck,” Jagger said with a grin. “She collects us like…”

“You make us sound like abandoned homeless dogs,” protested Holden.

With enough hot sauce and mustard slathered across his burger to start a small fire, Avner shrugged and said, “Aren’t we though? Not all of us, maybe…but most of us. Throw a hard luck story in her path and rescue becomes the order of the day.”

This is really late, but could I possibly still get a prompt? Thank you!
