15 Word Meme

Snow day today! Good thing, because I've caught that head cold thing going around. (No, not the swine flu.) We're having a blizzard - it's been snowing since the middle of last night. I don't even want to go out and plow, the driveway will just fill up again. Damn you, lake effect!! *shakes fist weakly*

What a good excuse to do this meme/challenge thingy stolen from BDQ.

1. Write down the names of 10 characters.
2. Write a fic of fifteen words or less for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers. Do NOT read the prompts before you do step 1.

My list – Tformers fandom, of course:
1 Optimus Prime
2 Starscream
3 Beachcomber
4 Sunstreaker
5 Sideswipe
6 Ironhide
7 Ratchet
8 Tracks
9 Thundercracker
10 Prowl


First time, 4 and 6 - Sunstreaker, Ironhide

“Let me teach you, youngster,” Ironhide murmured, as he loomed over his handsome, yellow berthmate.

Angst, 7 - Ratchet

Was this his fifth cube, or fiftieth? Who cares? No one loves a failure.

AU, 1 and 8 - Optimus Prime, Tracks

Optimus stroked the shiny wings. “Did you know that I'm partial to the color blue?”

Threesome, 3, 6, and 9 - Beachcomber, Ironhide, Thundercracker

“ ’Hide, dude. That’s so not cool.”
“Cain’t help it – shiny.”
“Hey, stop touching my wings!”

Hurt/Comfort, 5 and 10 - Sideswipe, Prowl

I’m sorry, Prowl, I didn’t mean it like that.”
“Please leave.”
“I’m sorry….”
“Get out!”

Crack, 1 - Optimus Prime

Optimus swayed drunkenly on his barstool. “Eighty-three cubes of Energon on the wall….” ♪ ♫

Horror, 10 - Prowl

Unable to process the massacre of his troops, Prowl’s logic center welcomed him into oblivion.

Baby!fic, 5 and 9 - Sideswipe, Thundercracker

“You’re WHAT?!?”
“You heard me, Thundercracker. Make room, I’m defecting with our sparkling.”

Dark, 2 and 8 - Starscream, Tracks

Tracks screamed as his wings were deliberately ripped off.
“You don’t deserve the sky, Autoscum.”

Romance, 4 and 7 - Sunstreaker, Ratchet

“Sunstreaker, you are amazing.”
“I know.”
“Remind me to thank Ironhide when I can move.”

Deathfic 2 and 3
- Starscream, Beachcomber

“Please, help me,” Beachcomber pleaded.
“I’ll help you Autobot,” Starscream sneered. “Right to the Matrix!”


This was tougher than I thought it would be. All I can say is - thank primus for contractions!

I liked the Sunny and Hide for the first time, which segued very nicely into my fav romantic pairing.

Angsty Ratchet should have been easy. But I kept coming up with too many words trying to describe a death situation. So I changed the pace and went with the [unsuccessful] aftermath.

and Tracks – what can I say. I kind of like the idea of them as a pair. Hmmm….

Beachcomber was a wrench in the works. I had a hard time fitting his personality into the prompts. But I could totally picture Ironhide molesting TC.

Sideswipe and Prowl’s was more of hurt/refuse comfort. Maybe comfort comes later.

Can’t get much crackier than a drunken OP singing. Made myself laugh.

Prowl’s horror was the last prompt that I did. I just couldn’t come up with a description of anything that was truly horrible. And using the words ‘welcome[d] to oblivion’ made me think of ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’, which made me laugh and took me out of the horror mindset. No wonder this was the worse prompt.

Sides and TC. Well, ya gotta figure with all that groping going on during jet judo, something had to have come out of it!

Both Starscreams came out incredibly evil. Which surprised me a bit, I generally like to think of him as misunderstood. But, he is quite possessive of the skies.

The deathfic also gave me problems. I needed about 10 more words to say what I really wanted. I was going to have them be the last 2 bots on Earth, but Star finally decided he wanted to be alone.

This was fun. I would like to try it with another fandom, but I don’t know if I could come up with 10 characters that I could coherently write about. I'd have to wait a bit so I can forget the prompts.
Let’s see…um, Predator is a possibility…maybe Anita Blake. Ooh, how about Rocky Horror or Rachel Morgan. Yeah, when I have time. I have too many stories going on. When will I learn – one at a time.

EEE! Love this! I completely agree, fifteen words really forces you to think.

Optimus singing! XD I had to giggle! And OP and Tracks does sound interesting. And completely agree with the Jet Judo! LOL!

*Claps* Love it! And I may do this again with another fandom too... hmmm... not many of them have more than 10 characters though.

Come on, with the 20 fandoms you listed the other day - at least ONE of them must have over 10 characters. No excuses, I can see right thru you!
Oh, did anyone guess who your fav G1 was? I'm too lazy to look back at your post.
Glad you got a giggle out of my drabbles.

Actually, most of them only have 5 characters I like and a billion side characters that are just REALLY annoying. LOL I may or may not do FF7. *ponders*

Anyway, yes they did. It was Red Alert. ;p
