kjata: star wars (mechanized brothels in the)
Star Wars Ep VII: TFA
Poe Dameron/Finn
7k words; T for Teen
Written for the 2017 May The 4th Exchange

There's no pain when Finn wakes up from taking a lightsaber to the back, just a woozy swoop and dip from all the meds in his IV and his first time seeing a Wookie doctor. He's fully cognisant for all of ten minutes before they put him under again, and when they let him wake up this time the entire Resistance has moved house from D'Qar to D'Way.

"You've got to be kidding me," he croaks at some pilot standing there, a short, light-skinned woman wearing long braids who looks like she wants to be anywhere else.

"It was Poe's joke, don't piss on the messenger," she says, then wrinkles her nose in reconsideration. "Or throw your bed pan at me."

Meme from [personal profile] used_songs:
List the first lines of your last 20 stories (or however many you have altogether). See if there are any patterns. Then, tag your favorite authors.


10 WIPs )

10 already posted fics )


And for a lol bonus cos I'm too lazy to figure out where this would fit in the order of things, the first line of superannuated:
George Cuvier's suit is ruined in the middle of a supermarket.

OMG SO RIVETING.



Uh, so patterns. All except two of the quoted pieces mention the Main Character in the first line, either by name or by direct gender reference (He/She). Most of them are short statements, but that's common with present tense so whatever. Only two begin with dialogue, the rest are character/scenic observations.

I'm too tired to put much more thought into it, but I'm sure this summary of my current comfort zone re: openings will lead so something invaluable in the future.


Not tagging anyone specifically, if the meme interests you then you should totally go for it.
kjata: (so rudely forc’d)
Attack the Block
Sam/Moses
8k words; M for Mature; Underage
Written for Yuletide 2016

"I didn't do nothing," Moses blurts before he can stop himself. His pulse is pounding in his ears like it does in a fight. He wishes he had a weapon to defend himself with.

Sam slowly drops her bag from how she was holding it like an over-hand bludgeon. When she bought a new purse she got this hard-sided thing that she can use as a weapon if needed. Pest adores it, but Moses thinks it looks like an ammo box on straps.

kjata: (call all philosophy empirical)
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
General Hux/Kylo Ren | Ben Organa Solo
5k words; M for Mature; Graphic Depictions of Violence

Hux does not wince at the sight of a ragtag gathering of misfits who managed to successfully repel a First Order-sanctioned Planet Acquisition. But he wants to.

"The General of the Resistance will not proceed with negotiations for a ceasefire unless Lord Ren is in attendance," the old Mon Calamari says. Organa is standing just behind his shoulder and glowering at the screen like a raging wall of righteous vengeance. Or like an upset mother.

Hux cants his head a minutiae to the left and surreptitiously eyeballs Phasma. She shakes her head. He flicks his attention back to the holoscreen, grins with all his teeth at Organa's pinched face.

"I'm afraid Lord Ren is currently in medical so a medroid can shove his intestines back into his abdomen. May I take a message?"

Part 1 in a series, what good's a brick to a drowning man.
