Drabble Tree Start

Share
Doctor Who: Nine's a Survivo
A drabble tree is more of a vine with tendrils than a tree. Here's how it goes: I'm posting a drabble at the end of this start. Someone else takes a line from my drabble and writes their own, posting it as a reply to that drabble. Anyone, at any time, can take a line from any drabble. Multiple lines from the same drabble, one from each, whatever. Knock yourself out. Drabbles are traditionally 100 words, but I'm not going to hold anyone to that (mostly because mine are almost always 200).

Anyone, any fandom welcome.



Owen was drunk. Completely smashed actually and Tosh hadn’t realized until his mouth was on hers, warm and slightly chapped. Until his tongue was in her mouth, tasting of the double jacks he’d swallowed in the hub, toasting them all at Midnight on the New Year. Three am though and he shouldn’t have been feeling it as much as he obviously was, hand on Tosh’s arse as she stood, frozen- her hand still in the air, holding the mistletoe above them, right above where Owen darted his tongue out to lick her lips in the open air before pulling her closer and hiding his face in her hair.

“Bloody cold,” he mumbled, lips on her neck. She was fucking freezing and could have stayed like that for hours. The thought, of course, as immediately followed by the cab finally arriving and Owen bounding away into the promised warmth of the taxi, calling out, “Come on, Tosh, shake a fucking leg, now.”

Tosh shook herself, tucking the mistletoe into her coat pocket. As first kisses went it…was still pretty damned bad.

Slightly altered meme

1. Comment with a fandom and a word or a word and feeling and I'll make you an icon. That's all the say you get into it though.
2. If you feel like it, copy this meme into your journal for your f-list.

Write a fic. No word limit, any fandom, any genre, anything. The only caveat is that the first line must be "What's a guy like you doing in a place like this?"


Fic is 'due' August 23, 11:59pm. Post links here.

August 2nd, 2007

I don't, generally, watch Doctor Who Confidentials or Torchwood Declassifieds. I do enjoy them when I do watch them- seeing John Barrowman enthuse about Billis Manger as "an evil gay" was one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. I don't read actors' or writers' interviews. I try ( again generally) to avoid spoilers. I do this for a very specific reason.

I avoid authorial intent like the plague. The plague.

At some point the phrase 'authorial intent' has become dirty to me. I am firmly, firmly of the opinion that the minute a text (text in this usage meaning source material) becomes available to me in it's finished form then the author's opinions are no more valid than the average internet Joe's. (The author, of course, has the ability to add to the source material in future installments which Joe does not.) If an author has failed to convince me of or inform me of something within his/her storytelling, then I do not have to accept it. If author poorly conveys their intended subtext it is not my responsibility to assume it's there. If an author intends to do something in an as-of-yet unavailable addition to the source material and shares this fact in an interview? I am not obligated to change my perspective until it becomes standard source material and my perceptions are jossed. In addition to that- just because an author states an intent to include something does not mean it will make it to the source material. Until something makes it to the source material, the main canon, I am not obligated to accept it. In some cases, and I'm thinking comics here, even then, it probably behooves everyone not to accept even source material as canon- it will undoubtedly be retconned.

In discussions and arguments over interpretation of source material, nothing, and I repeat nothing frustrates me more than seeing someone cite an author's interview or statement before evidence in the source material. Especially when the citing is done with an air of winning the argument. Interpretations are always just that- just because the author, at the moment, says that this interpretation is 'correct' does not make it more correct than Internet Joe's. You can't have a correct interpretation.
