A Huge Ever-Growing Pulsating Ficletpoll That Rules from the Centre of the Ultraworld

I can't settle to writing anything. My brain is bouncing around like a kitten who's just stuck her head in your coffee cup. Therefore, ficletspampoll that rules from the center of the ultraworld (aubry mix mk 2). Posting will commence Christmas Day, because I have it off from work. Also, because there seems to be some kind of tradition of giving people presents on or near that day, and I'm quite certain I enjoy doing that.

I'm forcing you to make choices and not check everything because I hate you. Also because I want to know what you desire most.


Poll #1108226 FicPoll Mark IX: ficletspam redux

Continuation or invention?

Continue an existing ficlet.
8(28.6%)
Invent something new.

If continuation, of what? Pick one of the short-ish things, please.

The rest of these questions are for those of you who want new invention. Those of you who want continuations are duty-bound to stop answering.

Oh, all right.

I picked things, but the truth is I could care less about the details. I need good b/g in the worst, worst way. I liked the drunken hotel room idea from the last poll.
The prompt was the first thing that came to my head. I blame the comics cover.

For some reason, I think Buffy would love Mrs. Peel and be totally intimidated at the same time.
Heh. And Giles is the right age to have seen her at an impressionable moment in his young manhood.
Here's the flash I just got (but I have my own real thing to write, and then to finish some HP stuff. Don't hate me, please, though I am a traitor to my first love.) Post Grave, in Bath with Willow, Jenny is drawn to their pain from the beyond. Could be a nice exploration of resolution for all three. Especially in your capable hands. Throw Ethan in the mix, too, and let the snark fly. Maybe have Ethan already dead at the hands of the Initiative. That makes more sense for how he wouldn't be back for an episode in S7....

Hugs to you in your writing travails, and sorry I have been so distant of late. Did hear from theblackmare last night, though-- fine but depressed, as per usual. We both send you hugs.
Regarding the fic kinks question, my answers may be read as "any or all of those checked". :) And I like the new layout, which I haven't seen before.
Winter colors!
I will likely be doing some major renovation and writing a new theme. Been reading about "quiet structure" in web pages, and thinking about how to apply it here.
Ok, I voted, but seriously, you can disregard that and instead give me a new part of Blackmail!
