I just received the summer_of_spike '5 days to go' reminder email. And I have nothing. Oh, I've fiddled about with PSP and produced a couple of wallpapers and two or three icons, but fic? Not a word. No drabbles, no ficlets, not even a haiku.

So I'm asking for drabble ideas. You all know I stay true to my boys, so don't expect anything other than Spike and Xander. But give me a scenario, or an object... give me something, and I'll see what I can do with it. Any requests that don't get make it into my SoS submissions will be kept until I come up with something fitting. Hopefully something will spark my muse.

It is damn hot here. How about a drabble about the boys playing in the snow?

That could be fun! Thanks.

Here's an idea... perhaps a humorous one... how long does it take Spike to light all those candles in his crypt, and can't you just see him going around with a box of votives and his Zippo, mumbling and cursing because they've burned down again? Or sidling into the Midnight Madness sale at the crafts store for discount tapers? That could just be me being silly... but perhaps it's something you could use. :-)

Oh! I like this one! Do this, this, this!!
darkhavensdarkhavens on July 10th, 2004 08:46 pm (UTC)
Heehee! I like it. Thanks!

What about a little ficlet/drabble about Xander's first white hair. You could either play it for laughs with Plucking Fun™ or have Spike offer instructions on proper hair dye technique. Or you could play it for sorrow with Spike fearing Xander's mortality.

Ooh, me likes! That could go either way...

A few random words/ideas for you...

Marlon Brando (died last week)
art deco
tap dancing
magnifying glass
hot air balloon
barbershop quartet

Hee! When this came through on the comment email I read 'art deco penguins' as one suggestion. ROFL!

These are certainly unusual. I'll definitely try to come up with something for some of them. Thanks!

Oh, I forgot that the e-mail does that! You could also read "penguins tap dancing" and "tap dancing easel" (which makes me think of Disney's "Beauty and the Beast") :snicker::

"Art deco penguins" isn't as odd as you might think -- I got the ideas from a bottle of Shakers vodka: it's art deco in overall design and has a stylized outline of a penguin etched on the front. You can see a picture of the bottle here.

Such pretty bottles! It might have to be 'art deco penguins' after all. Hee!

darkhavensdarkhavens on July 11th, 2004 06:54 pm (UTC)

You're twisted, you know that, don't you? Sick and twisted.

I'll see what I can do. ;o)
Cat: fangirl, author, artist, and icon maker.catvampcrazines on July 11th, 2004 08:02 pm (UTC)
Hey hey, only slightly! and some people enjoy my type of sick.. especially the boys when I do have rare moments when I can write them decent, lol.

I had some sick funny, and smutty fun with the series, lol, if you've read The Yummy Food and Torture one I did.. *evil grin* there was Spike, creative use of a bucket of popcorn in a public place and hee.. there was lots of giggles. But yes, I am sooo sick and twisted. It's fun.
darkhavensdarkhavens on July 12th, 2004 01:00 am (UTC)
'bucket of popcorn' sounds familiar, but I can't say for certain that I've read the series. Where can I find them? I never said there was anything wrong with being sick and twisted... ;o)
Cat: fangirl, author, artist, and icon maker.catvampcrazines on August 4th, 2004 06:30 am (UTC)
hee, you can find it as my site: http://www.geocities.com/whipsandchainsbtvs/ShadowsofDarknessEntrance.html

look in the slash section.. um, the one featuring the bucket in the yummy series is 4. Vegetable Payback: A Night at the Movies rofl... good cause I uh, flew off the deep end a while ago, lol.

how about xander discovers yaoi (manga about homosexual releationship) *my newest obsession by the way*

also, i'm requesting more grunge fic.

darkhavensdarkhavens on July 13th, 2004 01:02 am (UTC)
Ooh, interesting possibilities. Thanks!

And there is another part of Grungefic almost ready to be posted. I'm just busy getting ready for my summer_of_spike day which is Thursday. My muse is being stubborn about helping me out with that.
