I want to write me some delicious Ozai fic. Of the short variety, because I am also supposed to be writing some delicious Ozai fic of the long variety and writing all this longform stuff is making me want to claw out my brains.

Also, work sucks! :D

So! You have two slots. You are to use them to ask for Ozai-centric AUs. You can use any of my previous AUs, someone else's AU (if that someone else is Pux, Spyri, or Rin because I'll have read theirs), or make your AUs up on the spot!

The usual suspects get four slots. <3

I promise to fill at least one for each requester and may do more as interest catches me.

Meme is open until I get home from work tomorrow.

Meme is CLOSED.
I'm at page 82 of "Troubled Waters" by Sharon Shinn and am completely in love with the blessing coins.

[Bex]: ... I think the blessings thing is going to make me roll in its awesomeness.
[Bex]: There are blessings associated with each of the five elements, plus a handful of extraordinary blessings. They seem to be individual? And physical symbols of them are kept. The heroine has hers as silver charms. Her father had his as decorative wall-art.
[Bex]: I do not know how one acquires them. I must read more.
[Pux]: oooooooh
[Bex]: One does not have any say in one's own random blessings, and so far they seem to come in threes.
[Bex]: ... Interesting
[Bex]: One goes out and finds strangers to beg random blessings for one's child.
[Pux]: huh.
[Bex]: The first two people her father asked for blessings had coins with symbols on them. But apparently the traditional way is for you and the stranger to go to the temple, pay the tithe to enter, meditate or not to achieve balance, then go to the big barrel of blessing coins and have the stranger pull one out.
[Pux]: *nods*
[Bex]: And the stranger draws a blessing for themself, and you draw a blessing for you.
[Pux]: *grin*
[Bex]: "that was the point of random blessings: you were not supposed to show caution or discrimination about the people you approached. You were supposed to rely on the people who'd been sent to you by the unchoreographed currents of the universe. You were supposed to understand that wisdom could be imparted by anyone, no matter how unexpected, that everyone had a gift to bestow."

'What is the boy's name?' Monk Gyatso asked as he ran his hands through the coins in the blessings barrel. )

Night Flight )
Metal clinked against the stone, invading dreams and pushing Aang towards consciousness. Sharp bits dug into his back and legs, the mattress under him unaccountably lumpy and worn. It wasn't the way things were supposed to be, some part of him eventually woke up enough to realize. This wasn't home.

He opened his eyes to darkness.

For long minutes he lay there, his hands running over the mattress underneath him. It felt worn and dirty, straw sticking up through it and into his thin clothes. Manacles weighed his hands and ankles down, so every moment felt like a fight. Something gossamer-soft lay over his face. He reached up to pull it off and felt satin under his fingertips.

The air smelled strange, just faintly of salt but mostly of something like honey and something like candle-wax and something like he had never smelled before and didn't want to smell again if he could possibly help it. He blinked in the darkness, wishing for a fresh breeze.

Not entirely darkness. Aang sat up, fingers through the eye-holes of the mask. Just faintly, he could see a square of lighter grey in the gloom - a window with bars across it.

He pulled himself up to the window and stared out.

Far below, a brilliant blaze of lights shown in the darkness. Streetlamps shown dim and bright, tracing a labyrinth of boulevards and alleys. Some petered out in strange reflections- light on water, he realized. Some places the lights simply ended, or worse yet, patches of candles futilely strove against shadows. There was no pattern to the lights below, but all the lights led to a single great conflagration in the center.

Aang raised his eyes to the sky and found only darkness. Not night, though the darkness was sometimes broken up by a soft glow. They might have been stars, but somehow he didn't think so.

Far, far below, he could hear the sound of waves lapping against stone.

"Where am I?" He breathed.

Now that I've got a better idea of the history, I can take more free-ranging prompts. Plus I've got some surprises tucked away that I want a chance to spring on people.

Two requests, four to [livejournal.com profile] suzukiblu, [livejournal.com profile] dark_puck, [livejournal.com profile] spyridona, [livejournal.com profile] gigabomb, and [livejournal.com profile] floranna. I reserve the right to fill one and call it done. If I don't like a prompt, I'm just going to skip it entirely.

Have at.

I like Ozai. He makes me happy in my pants.

Quick meme. One request. Two if you're [livejournal.com profile] dark_puck, [livejournal.com profile] spyridona, [livejournal.com profile] suzukiblu, [livejournal.com profile] neldluva, [livejournal.com profile] floranna. No asking for Zuzai or Azuzai - so not in the mood.

Meme closes whenever I feel like it.

I have a list of Avatar characters and a list of a few of my favorite Avatar AUs, and I have numbered/lettered both of them. Pick a letter between A-F, one or two numbers between 1-20, and give me a prompt--mood, song lyric, whatever--and I will drabble you something based on the combination. Responses may or may not be either gory, porny, or ridiculous.

Seven slots, and the meme will be closed. Prompts from Rin, Puck, and Spyri do not count towards the overall amount of slots. Yarr.

(Avatar only, folks. And no, Crazuko isn't on the list.)

Edit: MEME IS CLOSED. I will finish to [livejournal.com profile] clockwerkchaos.
Ganked from [livejournal.com profile] suzukiblu:

Give me a character or pairing and I will write snippets of ten different alternate universe for it. One line, ten lines, a ficlet if you're lucky.

1. wild west:
2. cyberpunk:
3. furries:
4. pirates:
5. ...in SPACE!!:
6. born another gender:
7. schoolfic:
8. police/firefighters:
9. urban fantasy:
10. harem:

One request per person.

Because I am so tired of all the Zuko-whumping in fandom.

This meme is all about not only not whumping Zuko but actually being nice to him. Fluff. Tea. Teo. Song. Breakfast in bed. Having consensual, non-issue-laced sex. Sunny days. Chocolate and cream. Kittens. Turtleducks. Runner ducks. Ty Lee. Art. Cuddles. Candlelit evenings. Baths. Mai.

Ask as many prompts as you want. No whumping, not even hurt/comfort. Not all of them have to involve Zuko, because I'm an easily distracted writer monkey, but most of them should.

I only guarantee I'll fill out one of your requests. However, I definitely will not fill out more than one if you never reply to the one I write for you.

Disclaimer: I'm working on three other memes right now, plus my own projects. Responses may be slow.

A mini smut meme.

Give me three pairings/triplings/kumquats and prompts for each, and I'll write you two paragraphs of pure, unadulterated smut. 'Cause.

Avatar-only, please, no specifying kinks unless you know it's a kink I actually like.

'Cause I love memes, and I'm on a major DragonballZ kick right now. Major, major. There might be some Gohan/Piccolo snuggles later.

For now, though, I want to work on an Avatar-DBZ fusion'verse. Because it's fun, and Piandao and Sokka make an adorable Piccolo and Gohan. You know this to be true for a fact. YOU KNOW IT. In your heart of hearts.

So! Things to know about this 'verse: I haven't fusioned everything. Frieza is Frieza. Cell is Cell. Doctor Gero is Doctor Gero.

On the other hand, a lot of the main good guys have been fusioned. Son Hakoda! Prince Ozai! Mirai Zuko!

Rules are simple:
- I know what most of the main characters furion with, so please don't make requests of Avatar characters fusioned with DBZ characters. Ask for situations from DBZ canon, please. (Though I'd prefer to avoid anything after the Cell Games.)
- Or, you know, ask for Avatar characters and give me a lyric/mood/kumquat prompt. Don't ask for pairings, though. I'm sticking to canon DBZ ones for the fusion.
- Two requests per person, unless you're Spyri, Rin, and Pux
- Spyri, Rin, and Pux get four

MEME IS CLOSED and finished.
