777 meme

Stolen from yukitsukihana It looked a bit more interesting than the usual WIP memes.

1. Go to page 77 (or 7, or just hit pagedown 7 times) of your current manuscripts.
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines - sentences or paragrpahs - and post them are they're written.
4. Tag 7 other people 
I don't really like tagging, but if some other people would like to do it that would be awesome.

Fandom: FFVII
Pg 77, Lines 7-14

Cloud cautiously kicked a stray pebble into the darkened recesses of what might have once been a restaurant.  A low growl echoed from the interior.  Nothing human, then – just another blood hound protecting its territory.

He straightened and moved on, picking his way through the naked metal frame of the neighbouring building, out onto the rubble-strewn street again.  The late afternoon sun beat down on him, warming his back and nearly blinding him with its glare.

He was contemplating whether or not to put on his sunglasses when a wave of wind burst over him. 

Fandom: Junjou Romantica
Pg 7, Lines 7-14

Indecision tore at him, but in the end, his curiosity and insecurity won out over his instinctive dislike of the doctor.  With a hat pulled over his hair and his reading glasses resting on his nose – because his eyes were tired, he insisted to himself, not because he was spying - Hiroki followed the crude map, not certain what he expected to find, but dread curdling in his stomach all the same. 

It led to a diner – one not altogether unlike the place he and Nowaki normally frequented, with wide windows and a hand-painted sign and private booths with wooden tables. 

Fandom: Sailor Moon
Pg 7, Lines 7-13

Kunzite ordered himself to calm down.  Taking several deep breaths to recompose himself, he tried to reason out the situation.  It really wasn't as big a deal as that.  In all honesty, it had been clever, but not too remarkable.  He'd just grown used to dealing with the senshi as relatively stupid but powerful - and often lucky - girls.  There had never been any need for complex manoeuvres or serious thought when dealing with them.  He hadn't been expecting one to have a brain.  So she was a little smarter than her companions - it wasn't anything he couldn't deal with. 

Fandom: FFVII
Pg 7, Lines 7-15

Belatedly, Shelke gave an obligatory smile. “I understand. It is… surprising to hear, though.  Miss Kisaragi led me to believe that you harboured such an interest.”

That gained a blush, though it was fleeting.  “I was younger then.  We’re both very different people now.”  She leaned forward.  “And between you and me,” Tifa said in a conspiratorial whisper, “I think Aeris letting him infiltrate the Honeybee Inn on his own was a mistake.”  She gave her a cheeky wink.

Shelke’s smile this time was entire reflexive.  The Don Corneo story was regularly broken out at AVALANCHE gatherings, much to Cloud’s eternal displeasure.

He helped remove the last of the glass still clinging to the windshield, then headed around the back.  The other trooper was sitting at attention, but it looked like it was taking a lot of effort.  He’d removed his helmet, revealing a pair of light blue eyes and a blond head of the craziest helmet hair Kunsel had ever seen.

“Hey,” he greeted as he settled himself on the bench opposite.  “We’re on our way again soon.”

The trooper nodded.  When he spoke, his voice was soft and rounded, with an accent Kunsel couldn’t accurately identify.  A country kid, obviously.  “What happened?”

Heh heh. I couldn't resist! All those 7s... especially since I'm so into FF7 fandom these days.

!!! I really look forward to seeing you finish some of those WIP!

The first two are not too far away from the point where I will probably start posting them, if only because I don't want to get caught in a re-writing loop.

Oh, not fair! I want to read all the FVII ones now. T_T They sound so good~ And yay Cloud and Kunsel! <3

I would do the meme, but I recently lost all my fic on a jump drive that my brother broke. T_T

I could probably start posting at least the top one - it is well over 77 pages - but I am angsting over it. There are issues that could probably only be fixed with a complete rewrite, and that's not a time commitment I am willing to make. :/ But hey, that's what WIP memes are for!

D: That's a horrible turn of events! My sympathies!

Ack you tease! I love all the stories of your's that I read and I have no doubt that when you decide to post these I will love them to!

Wahh!! I want the FF7!!! I adore your writing by the way. Now if only you would write some Genesis/Cloud; you know, since it is totally your fault it exists as a ship in the first place...
Apr. 11th, 2012 12:41 pm (UTC)
Heh, thanks!

What makes you so sure none of them are Genesis/Cloud? :)
Apr. 12th, 2012 07:18 am (UTC)
Ooooh... I am very intrigued by the FF7 glimpses you gave to us... :D
Can't wait to see if/when you decide to post them!

Also, I forgot to tell you earlier, but thanks for giving me links to the PoT fics! I really enjoyed them! Too bad not many people write in that fandom any more... :(

You're welcome! It's become a somewhat old and niche fandom now unfortunately, but it had a massive heyday so at least there's plenty of back catalogue.
