A couple of you have done this, and I thought I'd join in, as once again I haven't posted in ages. And this is easy!

List the first sentence (or two because a couple of those first sentences are quite short) of each of the last ten fics you posted.

    The sky screamed with the fury of a thousand owls.
    Growth And Decay (The Gormenghast Trilogy)

    "Hove to, and prepare to be boarded!"
    Never A Dull Moment (Blake's 7)

    "I don't think this is London," said Ian, from the doorway of the TARDIS.
    Tomorrow (Doctor Who)

    They stood together at the end of it all, in a pool of black light, watching the last of the stars fade.
    Ebb And Flow (Sapphire & Steel)

    Cutter still blamed Helen.
    Toothmarks (Primeval)

    Sometimes the Earth died in fire.
    Fire & Brimstone (Captain Jack)

    There was green upon the air once again.
    The Green Woman (Robin Of Sherwood)

    "It's Christmas," observed Sapphire, with a trace of wonder in her tone.
    Assignment 3½ (Sapphire & Steel)

    For all the undoubted blessings and benefits that he had discovered in the 1960s, there were, thought Adam Adamant, one or two definite failings also to be found in that august decade.
    The Violet Viper (Adam Adamant Lives!)

    Clocks ticked. So many clocks, lining the walls, ticking and tocking away the seconds of inexorable time.
    Drabble (Doctor Who)

So, a little while ago I found this post, written on August 6th and then forgotten about entirely. So I de-privated it, and updated the date, and hoped that overlooking it for a couple of months didn't make me look like too much of an idiot. Except that now I find I've done it again. Several times!

Last spring, in lieu of the usual Obscure & British ficfest, there was [community profile] tic_tac_woe. And I got a lovely bingo card, and started to fill it; and then came the year of rushing about like a crazy person. I now find I have four short stories I'd forgotten I'd written, posted privately (presumably waiting for me to be sure they were ready for decloaking) on April 24th and 30th, and May 12th and 18th. I haven't got a bingo, but I thought I'd better do something with the wretched things before I forget them again! So here are some links to some very old posts:

Fire & Brimstone (400 words, Captain Jack Harkness)

Toothmarks (2000 words, Primeval)

Ebb And Flow (700 words, Sapphire & Steel)

Tomorrow (4000 words, Doctor Who)

And I apologise profusely to the world for bashing it over the head four times in one post. It's nothing personal, honest.

I just found this post, which I apparently wrote on August 6th, and have no memory of at all. I do remember [personal profile] thisbluespirit doing the poetry meme again, and me thinking what a good idea that was; but it's news to me that I actually did it! Anyway, it's a simple enough endeavour (and I recommend it). You write down five fandoms, and then go here, and write down the fifth line of the random poem that you land on - whatever it is, and believe me, there's some doozies. Then hit refresh a few times until you've got five. Use them as inspiration for a ficlet for each fandom. Usually you'll end up with at least four poems by Emily Dickinson, but try not to find it too disheartening. The internet has always been obsessed with her.

(Not posting for two months isn't one of the rules, incidentally. That just happened, for reasons. Mostly involving stupidity.)

Clocks ticked. So many clocks, lining the walls, ticking and tocking away the seconds of inexorable time. Inexorable, that is, for some. Crawling through the shadows, sonic screwdriver in one hand, a hotch-potch of home-made mischief in the other, came the Doctor. The Clockmaker sought to manipulate time; to twist it to his own evil ends; and the Doctor was the universe's best line of defence. One meddlesome Time Lord, and a great deal of improvising.

Clocks ticked. Time – and so much else – moved on. And yet, mused the Doctor, as she ducked a laser beam, some things never change.

Title: None
Fandom: Babylon 5
Rating: G
Characters: Ivanova and Marcus

prompt: #047 - shadow

Half shadow, half spider, it hung before them, all sharp spikes and razor edges. Blacker than space; a darkness well beyond anything in human experience. Light seemed to slide off it; to cower from it; to skitter away, and hide itself in places unseen. Ivanova could only sympathise. And they were to fight these things? These shadows that light itself seemed to fear? Beside her, Marcus whispered something in Minbari – a prayer, she thought – then flashed her a wholly incongruous grin. She smiled back. And why not? When light itself was afraid, what else was there to do but smile?
