It's been ten days (well, eleven actually, but who's counting?) since I issued a fic challenge, and now it's time for a round-up!

If you answered the challenge, please comment here with a link to your fic to be included in the round-up.

A v.v. awesome friend of mine is running a v.v. awesome word-use challenge this summer, based on 100 Words Every Word Lover Should Know. Some of these I don't know, and some I do, and a bunch of them I've already used in fics. If you can name a word from the list below and the fic I've used it in, I'll give you a present. DK what it is yet -- probably a drabble.

In the Anonymeme, I was warned against pandering and "cuddling up to readers." In general, my approach toward writing is to write what I want, and if anyone else reads it, great. (Exception being custom-written fics, which are written how I want and how the requestor wants.)

TODAY, HOWEVER, I WILL CUDDLE UP TO ANY HOUSE OR SGA FAN WHO VOTES

I am thinking up a "House and Wilson wait in line to vote" dialogue-only ficlet. If you voted, you can be one of the voters waiting in line with them. Comment on this post with the physical description you want to have, and if you like, one thing you want to say to them. Or you can request that another canon character from House or Stargate Atlantis approach them in line.

Non-Americans reading this, if you voted in the last major election in your country, you qualify too.

[livejournal.com profile] house_of_fanfic is having a Dialogue only Ficathon/Drabble-a-thon.

AWESOME! If you've never tried dialogue-only, here's your chance!

The rules are at the link, but here are the most important:
* Dialogue only story. (No descriptive text, 'he saids', etc.)
* Word count is your choice. A drabble, or something longer or shorter; it's up to you.
* All ships welcome. And friendship, and gen.
* Clearly label your fic for rating, spoilerage, title, author, word count and ship (if any).

If you want a prompt, comment here with the characters you're most interested in, and I'll give you one!

Exclamation points!

If you participated in the Speculation Pool, now is the time to pay up! Don't make me send Martin Grey after you!

Go to Xaipw's post on [livejournal.com profile] wilsons_heart and give her something creative. Fun, funny, or angsty; ep-related or not; it's all good. So far, people have paid up with:


- an activity-book-type maze
- icons
- a GIF of House, Wilson, and Sheppard from Stargate Atlantis
- a short, funny vignette on why Wilson sleeps on House's couch
- a post-ep ficlet with Wilson considering other universes
- a schmoopy House/Wilson ficlet completely unrelated to the ep

Your turn!

If you're participating in the speculation pool, I sent you an invite for a new community. Please join it, as that's where we'll announce results and you'll either "pay up" or collect.

Speculation Sweepstakes for Last Episode of Season Four of House MD

Many, many speculative theories have arisen about what will happen in the season-ending episode of House MD. [livejournal.com profile] daisylily asked me how many I've heard, and it's been... a lot. So, why not have a contest, sweepstakes style?

Comment here and you will be randomly assigned to one of the 50 speculations in the list below. If your assigned speculation is correct, you win! Note: 10 slots still open!

Please note that all speculations may or may not be based on spoilers. I have not marked which parts are spoilers, so you may cover your ears and LA-LA if you don't want to know ahead of time. However, if seeing something in the episode that was speculated here will bum you out, read no further.

Losers are required to produce a small creative offering for the winner: write a drabble, sketch a picture, create a macro or icon, or just screencap a favorite moment from the episode.

Winner or winners get all the goodies, plus a banner proclaiming "I Won Wilson's Heart*! *Speculation Sweepstakes". Unless the winner does not want to have won Wilson's heart (looking at you, IHC), in which case they will get an autographed* picture of their favorite House actor/actress *autographed by me.

A couple of fans had the idea to raise money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, one of Robert Sean Leonard's favorite charities, as a tribute for his birthday, February 28.

[livejournal.com profile] rsl_bday_drive has details and instructions on how to donate, on the profile/user info page. As [livejournal.com profile] jane_hidell said, "I do believe it's something about which RSL might actually think "Huh, neat" before he goes out to buy more Vienna Fingers."

To support this effort, I'm offering custom fics to anyone who donates, at 50 words a dollar. $2 gets you a 100-word drabble; $5 gets you a 250-word ficlet; $100 gets you a 5,000-word custom fic of your very own. (Just found out minimum donation is $5)

If you've read any of my stuff, you know I'll write just about anything: slash, het, gen, any character, almost any subject*. This is your chance to get a fic written to your specifications, in the House, SGA, or Damon/Affleck fandoms.

Please give to support a great charity, and to honor a great dork. : )

ETA: My gal [livejournal.com profile] phinnia and [livejournal.com profile] alex51324 are going to make the same basic offer. Only one fic request per donation, please!

*If you're under 18, I will not write you NC-17.
