WIP meme

Meme ganked from blauerschnee

If you happen to be working on some creative writing project, fanfiction or whatever, post one sentence/paragraph/whatever from each of your current work(s) in progress in your journal. It should probably be your favourite or most intriguing sentence so far, but what you choose is entirely your discretion. Mention the title (and genre) if you like, but don't mention anything else.

I've got a lot more WIPs than this, but tried to keep it to ones that actually have a chance of getting posted.


Terra squeaked, and quickly covered Onion Knight’s eyes.

“An interesting tactic,” the Warrior of Light commented, completely unperturbed by the revelation. “Though I suspect it won’t very effective against Cloud of Darkess or Ultimecia.”

“Or Kuja,” Tidus added.  "But I bet it'll work great on my old man."

"It's not... the stats..." Cloud protested, face burning underneath the long blonde strands of hair.


“Here should be far enough,” Angeal interrupted. The van lurched to a halt.
“What a relief,” Sephiroth drawled. “If we reached the fifth act, we may have been forced into a discussion.”
Genesis tossed his head in a practiced act of disregard. “I wonder, Sephiroth, what ending you would choose.”
“I wonder,” Sephiroth echoed, then opened the door, flooding the van with harsh light.


"He's got feathers in his hair, Seph!" Zack tugged on one particularly long one, nestled in with the spikes.  Cloud winced.  "It's gold!  Matches perfectly."


Hijikata wasn't expecting a favourable reaction, but the panicked expressions on the kids' faces were a little unexpected.  Had he stumbled upon something?

Gintoki, for his part, seemed unconcerned.  "So long as you don't get in my way."
"It's just observation." Hijikata confirmed.
"And you organise your own sleeping arrangements.  The closet is already taken."
"I'm fine with the floor."
"And you buy all our food.  We're not feeding you."

"That's - hey, this isn't a free meal you damn scamp!  I'll buy my own food only!"

Persona 4

Doujima recognises where the thought is going, and stops it in its tracks.
He’s lost a loved one before. He knows what’s going to happen if he keeps dwelling on this. 
Naoto’s with them. Kid or not, Naoto’s a fine detective. If there are any stones left unturned… In the meantime, he has to be there for Nanako.
His nephew would never forgive him if he neglected his daughter in pursuit of his killer. Not after all the trouble and arguments they went through.
He can’t quite bring himself to entirely squash that sliver of hope, though.

A world inside the TV. Ludicrous.

Sailor Moon

"I am expendable. They are not."

"You really think that the Sailor Senshi can survive without you?" Kunzite asked cynically. "Without you, they're not smart enough."

"If I kill you," she replied stubbornly, "They don't need to be."

Prince of Tennis

“It was a meaningless victory. Everyone could plainly see that they had no right to win the match, even if they didn’t know why. That is enough for me. There will be other tournaments.”

“But you should have won this one,” Ryoma snapped, words coming out harsher than intended.  He rubbed his wrists irritably.

“Winning isn’t the most important thing.”

Prince of Tennis

Ryoma's mouth opened and closed a couple of times, but no sounds came out.  Tezuka sighed.   "How long have you been walking around with a silence spell on?"

Ryoma folded his arms sulkily.

Momoshiro blinked.  "Hey... that wasn't from that Marlboro yesterday, was it?"

Tezuka closed his eyes and counted to ten.  He should have known it was a bad idea to let that particular party wander off to fight fiends without his supervision.  It was true that Ryoma was hardly the chatty type, but did no one really notice that he hadn't cast any spells for two days?

Natsume Yuujinchou

Natori let out a sad little half-chuckle. “I guess we still have a long way to go if you can still suspect that sort of thing from me.”

It was true. He couldn’t bring himself trust Natori – not even now, after the misunderstanding had been cleared. How could he? They were nothing but a pair of liars.

Hiji/Gin, I'd say. Although with those two, it could so easily wind up being the other way. OMG, CLOSET JOKES, THE THOUGHT HAD NOT EVEN OCCURRED TO ME! This is why WIP memes are a good idea!

The credit it allll yours. :D

I second this.

I can't believe that one received such a favourable reaction! And to think that fic was rescued from the 'I should abandon this' pile. o__O Guess it'll have to get moved up the priority list!

On an unrelated note and not of any interest whatsoever, but anyhow I just need to say it, this video I just watched on niconico has that scene in it you mentioned - Become Seigaku's pillar of support! I can't, I'm human!
Epitastic! :D I love this musical.

asdflkjaslfkjsalfkj I WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN NOW. (Well, moreso).

As far as I'm concerned, the musical is now canon. Manga and anime are second place. XD
