serai: A kiss between Casey Connor and Zeke Tyler (CaseyZeke)

Merry Christmas, everyone!

This is for [ profile] aliensouldream, who requested Christmas fics. Didn't think I'd make it, but I did!

Prompt: It came without ribbons! It came without tags! It came without packages, boxes or bags!



The glass of his bedroom window is frosty, and it bites Casey's skin where he leans his forehead. It's supposed to snow again tomorrow. Claire Stanton's cackle comes echoing up the hallway stairs outside his room, and Casey closes his eyes. Man, he hates that woman. Why do his parents keep inviting her every year? He closes his eyes, wishing... )

Yay! It's past midnight on Devil's Night, so that makes it officially Halloween!

Here's my entry for this year's Trick or Treat Challenge. A comment on [ profile] fffc by [ profile] prisca1960 sparked the resurgence of an idea I had months ago. Here's the result...

by Serai

Zeke doesn't look at the photograph very often, but sometimes he does. He sits on the floor in the corner of the living room, by the low shelf that holds family relics, and pulls it out of the photo album where it stays tucked away between wedding portraits. He doesn't know who first left it there, but its outlines have sunk into the smiling blandness of grandparents in white lace and tuxedo black, the ancient paper thick and hardened by time, age seeping onto the adjacent pictures in soft smudges of brown... )

I think popping out those little 3-sentence squibs may be having an effect. Late last night, this showed up. Written in response to [ profile] naemi's prompt: mesmerizing

by Serai

Casey looks down at Zeke, and bites his lip at the sight of that body doubled underneath him, all that hard strength opened willingly for him. Zeke's skin shines with the sweat breaking out over his body, luscious and brightening in the slowly rising dawn. The dark golden eyes are staring out blindly... )

Hhhokay. So.

When I went to DuckDuckGo to find the right pic of Elijah for my Thanksgiving post yesterday, I came across this:

and stopped dead in my tracks. I've never seen this pic before. Isn't it lovely?

YES. I've just finished my fic for [ profile] aliensouldream's Halloween challenge. Nice to work on a one-off challenge again. I don't have a great talent for Scary, but I think I made a decent showing, so we'll see if it creeps anyone else out.

What fun! \O/

ETA: Anybody know if or how we're supposed to indicate the story is for this challenge? Subject line or just note it before the body of the fic?

This looks interesting.

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

You can find my stories at my website, The Taste of Salt, or you can look in my Memories for anything I wrote in the last year. (There's more than a few, and yes, I'm working on a site update.)

ETA: LOTR only for this one. Scratch that. Looks like the Muse is being unusually cooperative for once, so feel free to prompt from any of my stuff. (In fact, I'll take suggestions from my Haunted Memory website as well, if anybody's interested.)

I can't guarantee that you'll get anything very long (not that I write long stories anyway), but I do promise that you'll get something. I'm in a writin' frame o' mind, dontcha know. ;)

A-- go to my LotR Fanfiction here and pick out a line or two from one of my stories.
B-- I will respond with which story I think it's from.
C-- I'll write a scene (in this case, a ficlet of 100-400 words) for the LOTR characters of your choice with the plot point of your choice to anyone who stumps me.
D-- If I get more than ten responses, I will do the first ten ficlets who stump me.

Obviously, you'd do well to pick something challenging, but unless it's really unique, I'm going to say it should be more than five words.

Have at thee!

On the other hand...

Am feeling very depressed and flailing in a futile manner. I signed up for the latest [ profile] hobbit_smut challenge, and I can't come up with a single thing. Have had a couple of ideas, and none of them are sparking me to write anything. I'm not getting anywhere and am feeling pretty dismal about it. I should have known better than to commit to something like this - it never works for me. Damnit!

Somebody throw me a porn plot bunny, please? As a last-ditch effort, perhaps it would get me going.

Well, this is an interesting little exercise. Been seeing it around, (gacked it from [ profile] danachan) and am letting a couple of lines cook in the ol' oven.

Here's my list, in case anybody's interested. *snort*

In case you haven't heard, the way it works is you pick one of my lines and use it as a first line in a drabble of your own. Because some of my first lines are quite long, and set too much of the story, I've cheated just a little and shortened them. If that's not ok, feel free to slap my wrist!

Drabble meme - First Line List )

And just for fun, here are some first lines from fics none of you have read, 'cause they pertain to another fandom. I'd love to see what any LOTR writers would do with them. ;) (ETA: D'oh! I just realized a couple of them are too modern, so I've modified 'em.)

Dang, this is a real surprise. Seems my Muse is being awful nice to me.

One Left Over - For the "Birthday Candles Are Hot" Challenge at [ profile] hobbit_smut

Happy Birthday, Bilbo and Frodo! Big smoochy hugs to you both, my dear hobbits. Whatever would life be like without you?

OK, stupid me! I posted my challenge fic here by mistake, when I meant to post it at [ profile] hobbit_smut. So I've edited this post, and it's now a link to the story over there.

One Left Over

Sorry about that. Darned new-fangled posting screen had me all confuzzled...

Much to my surprise, my Muse really was serious when he started to nudge me this week. You can see the results here:

The Taste of Salt - Hold Me, Heal Me Challenge at [ profile] hobbit_smut

Be warned - this fic is quite angsty. ("Oh, what a surprise", I hear you mutter as you roll your eyes. Shut up. ;P)

I'll be posting this here when the community rules allow. I think that's a week from now, but I'll have to check. And now I'm off to sleep, as it's 3:30 in the morning, and I gotta go to work in 3 hours.


A big kiss to my Muse. I love you, Baby.
