April's Winner and May's Contest!  
Wow. I had some great entries for the Angsty April Fic Fest.

rose_in_texas wrote a Supernatural that had character death, but OH, my word. If you're a fan of the show, you need to read this. So good. And eustacia_vye28 wrote a heart-wrenching Firely fic with River/Jayne. filia_umbrae came in with a last minute Temperance Brennan is an idiot for not laying Booth on her desk and snogging him silly and instead cries about it at night fic. I loved it, truly. Bones and I? Not seeing eye to eye right now. Especially after she said she didn't like one of my favorite bands on Thursday. *grumps*

Sorry. Got off topic. Again. Anyhow, the winner this month is leigh_adams, who came in with a heartbreaking Fleur/Cedric/(Bill) story that made me teary. Congratulations to you, Leigh, and a huge thanks to everyone who entered. I loved them all. I might need your address, Leigh, and what scents you prefer, floral/fruity/musk... etc. :)

MAY'S Contest! I've thought about it, and I think this month will involve individual prompts for all those who want to enter. For example, if you want to write R/P, I might give the prompt: "Perfume." The winner of May's contest will win a $15 gift certificate to itunes. Or if you think itunes is in league with the devil, then Best Buy, whichever you prefer. I'll open it up to all pairings from whatever fandom tickles your fancy. I like a good read, so it really matters little what pairing it is. So come on! If you've never entered, May's your month! Take the plunge!
I am:: bed!
I feel:: melancholymelancholy
I hear:: NCIS
Hyacinth Girl: No Ploteustacia_vye28 on May 2nd, 2010 12:52 am (UTC)
Well, I may be able to write you a ficlet! (And if by some chance I win, Best Buy >>>> itunes. I'm one of those rare souls that hates Apple and i-anything)

I'll just list what I usually write, and you can either throw down a mess of prompts so I play mix and match, or just prompt the one you'd rather see.

HP: D/G, M/K, R/P
Firefly: R/J, S/K (anyone, really, but I have those pairing voices down the best)
Avatar: the Last Airbender: Zuko/Katara or Sokka/Suki
Mirrormask: Helena/Valentine
Supernatural brofic or casefic, but it would be EARLY in the show, since I haven't seen past Season 2 yet. ^^;
Tin Man: DG/Cain, Azkadellia/Zero

There's prolly others I could do, but that's off the top of my head right now. :)
Carrie Leigh: pansy/roncarrie_leigh on May 2nd, 2010 01:01 am (UTC)
Cool icon!

Ooooh, okay, let's have D/G or R/P... with a prompt of water.

HEE! Exciting.

Elle Blessingway: HW Biteselle_blessing on May 2nd, 2010 01:02 am (UTC)
Hmm. I'm totally game. I'll keep it all challenge'y by letting you pick the prompt and HP pairing. Feel free to make the prompt as detailed as you'd like. I enjoy trying to figure out how to make it all work.

(Also, I loved that piece by Leigh, too)
Carrie Leigh: writer coffeecarrie_leigh on May 2nd, 2010 01:04 am (UTC)

I'm totally getting a puppetmaster high, I'll have you know.

Can I have either D/G or R/A with a prompt of.... sunshine!
Leigh: Love actually: squeeleigh_adams on May 2nd, 2010 01:57 am (UTC)
Oh Carrie, thank you! I really didn't think you'd like it because of the death and all (and I'm sorry it made you teary!), but I'm glad you liked it! I wrote a sequel of sorts for sortinghatdrabs, but luckily, it's not nearly as angsty!

I think you have my Mississippi address, so let me know if that's the one you have (as I have moved!).

And I'm game for this month's challenge. Like Elle, I'll let you pick prompt and pairing! :D

Thank you again! I'm still grinning like mad, and I'm not gonna lie, I'm kinda in shock!
Carrie Leigh: Beautiful Womencarrie_leigh on May 2nd, 2010 02:05 am (UTC)
Yes, I have the Mississippi one.

Your pairing for May is.... Castle/Beckett (I'm working on yours right now) with a prompt of "coffee."

You didn't say what you liked! Favorite scent from Bath and Body Works? Have a look see. http://www.bathandbodyworks.com/category/index.jsp?categoryId=3157625

Ooh, I'll try! How about Draco/Ginny?
Carrie Leigh: Draco and Ginnycarrie_leigh on May 2nd, 2010 02:06 am (UTC)
YAY! Your prompt is... the infirmary. :D
Embellishedembe11ished on May 2nd, 2010 02:12 am (UTC)
D/G, please. My urge to write has been sorely lacking lately, but maybe your prompt will inspire me (no guarantees, however!). So please give me something good! :)
Carrie Leigh: D loves Gcarrie_leigh on May 2nd, 2010 02:18 am (UTC)

It's so cool that you do these little contests. I'll give it a try for May. I've only really written for HP fandom, but you can prompt anything from that. :)

(I'd also be willing to try Sons of Anarchy, but I don't think you watch that.)
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on May 2nd, 2010 04:13 am (UTC)
I don't watch that. Lord, I don't know where I'd squeeze it in.

Let's see. HP. Something with the Slytherins. Any of them. Your prompt... passwords.
filia_umbrae on May 2nd, 2010 05:18 am (UTC)
Ooooh. I'm so glad that you liked, and congrats to leigh_adams! That was an amazing and lovely fic.

OK. I'm kind of in the same boat as eustacia_vye28...

Avatar the Last Airbender: Zuko/Katara
Firefly: River/Jayne, Mal/Inara (or the other canon pairings)
Bones: B/B or Hodgins/Angela

I can probably swing a few more ships if you have anything you are hankering for (maybe some Mulder/Scully or Castle/Beckett).

Also, seriously thanks for doing these little monthly things. It's such a neat idea <3
Carrie Leigh: Firefly pompous/crazycarrie_leigh on May 2nd, 2010 07:00 pm (UTC)
Oooooh. Firefly: Mal/Inara. Your prompt: jewels, jewelry.

I'll give it a whirl ... since I'm right into Castle/Beckett at the moment is it okay if I do that pairing?
Carrie Leigh: Pfft.carrie_leigh on May 2nd, 2010 07:03 pm (UTC)
Is Castle/Beckett okay, she asks. Pfft.

Your prompt: Rockefeller center ice skating.

PICK ME PLEASE! :D You know my ships, but I'll remind you - Tony/Ziva (and other NCIS related ships), Draco/Ginny (and some other HP), and then Supernatural Genfic (never attempted, but willing to learn)
Carrie Leigh: Muttleycarrie_leigh on May 2nd, 2010 07:03 pm (UTC)
NCIS: Tony/Ziva with a prompt of ...undercover.

This is like the last thing I should be doing. xD Sign me up, Scotty!

Um, I'm indecisive. Make my decisions for me?

HP: D/G, H/P, R/P, Hr/Viktor, Angelina/whoever, Penny/Percy or of choice

SPN: I'll write anyone for this, really, but Trickster/Kali is my OTP of the moment.

Firefly: River/Jayne, Mal/Inara, and the canon pairings

I'd like to try please. I'll find time somewhere.

HP: D/G. Hermione/anyone.
Ugly Betty: Daniel/Betty (but I know you don't watch).
The Office: Jim/Pam.
Bones: Bones/Booth. (Maybe. I just finished watching up to season 4. I'm holding off on the fic world until I've caught up on Season 5. So I could maybe do something pre-season 5.)

Carrie Leigh: Jimcarrie_leigh on May 18th, 2010 11:58 am (UTC)
*squeal* Diane!


Okay. Prompt. I'm THRILLED that you're watching Bones! Just thrilled. But I won't make you write fic if you aren't ready. How about Jim/Pam: arguing over who in the office would be a good babysitter.

Gah. I just had a flash of leaving Dwight with the boys. Not. Going. To. Happen.

All right, give me a prompt. I work well under pressure.
Carrie Leigh: teacupscarrie_leigh on May 31st, 2010 10:16 pm (UTC)
Oooh, okay.

Um.... D/G with a prompt of blankets/quilts. Or teacups. Or both. :D
