This is a meme swiped from LJ user Trovia (with permission to use hers as an example). It's quick, easy, and fun. She's written in two styles; one unrelated, and one as a linear narrative. Have fun, and maybe we'll do this as a GWP sometime. Please follow the format below; cut and paste (code may be a problem) is your friend.

Write 10 different categories of fic, each in 10 words or less.

Quote:
Random
1. Angst

But he was still trembling.
"All right," he whispered. Eight smiled.

2. AU

Nevertheless, every time Baltar stroke the wrong note, Gaeta smirked.

3. Crackfic

"Repeat: Don't stop the pigeon. This is not a drill."

4. Crossover

"Of course I'll be your holiday replacement," Aziraphale assured Six.

5. First Time

But the jump was complete, and Felix dared to breathe.

6. Humor

"Why?" Gaeta frowned, looking down. "What's wrong with tights?"

7. Fluff

Hearing the ocean roar, sun burning his skin...
Perfect.

8. Smut

"Lt. Gaeta?" Hoshi asked cautiously. "You inquired about porn?"

9. H/C (Hurt/Comfort)

Godsdammit, Apollo. Shaking his head, Felix poured Dee another shot.

10. UST

Baltar's hand brushed against his.
Felix shuddered.
Soon, he thought.

Linear example
Angst

Knowing that he could never have him,

AU

Felix had still dreamt sometimes that Gaius was his.

Crackfic

Then one day, he ran into the scientist humping air

Crossover

and talking to a poltergeist or some such.

First Time

Gaius had just smirked, inviting him to join "them".

Humor

Getting a blowjob by an invisible woman had been awkward

Fluff

but Gaius had locked eyes with Felix through it all,

Smut

even when he came with a bone-deep shudder. And

H/C

assuring Gaius that it was all right, Felix could almost ignore

UST

the invisible hands still touching him when he fell asleep.

Example format: (Please put your fics in color, as is standard. Also please bold the genres.)

1. Angst
2. AU (Alternate Universe, where things are not the same)
3. Crackfic (Comic or crazy)
4. Crossover (Two fandoms)
5. First Time
6. Humor
7. Fluff
8. Smut
9. H/C (Hurt/Comfort)
10. UST (Unresolved Sexual Tension)

1. Angst
Helo opened the metal door and rolled out Boomer's body.

2. AU
"Commander Agathon, reporting from Pegasus, sir."

3. Crackfic
Baltar tapdanced across the deck. Where'd he get a cane?

4. Crossover
He rather liked the taciturn Captain, but Hera loved River.

5. First Time
Helo looked at the potato he was peeling. KP sucked.

6. Humor
Holding Hera strategically, he apologized. "Sorry, sir. I was showering."

7. Fluff
Nothing felt like Sharon's hair sifting through his fingers.

8. Smut
Even the inside of her mouth was slick and tender.

9. H/C
Helo's arms folded around her and shut out the world.

10. UST
Boomer looked toward him and he tongued the lollipop suggestively.

1. Angst
Water beat on his slumped shoulders and he hated himself.

2. AU
"My name is Hotel. Shall I go now?"

3. Crackfic
"We do this dodgeball weekly," Topher explained, "for team-building."

4. Crossover
"Ni hao, Mr. Ballard. Welcome aboard."

5. First Time
Paul looked into Echo's eyes as she imprinted on him.

6. Humor
"Boyd. You want to drive again this time? Faster?"

7. Fluff
Mellie made him fluffer-nutter sandwiches. Disgusting, but he ate them.

8. Smut
Mellie was a woman he could roll around on.

9. H/C
Her fingers laced through his as she called the nurse.

10. UST
DeWitt thought she had him, but he had surprises left.

This will take some time. So far I'm debating two A.U. microficlets:


Spine ablaze and womb baking Sharon Tyrol screamed in ecstasy.

or

"You're married to a Cylon," Col. Gaeta confessed to Anastasia.

Maybe that's the sentence I should conclude OTS with, then. 8-) Do you think they'd have their honeymoon in the toolroom?

Rebelliousrose, those aren't quite as AU as two that I rejected:

"You're married to a Cylon," Col. Gaeta confessed to Billy. :lol:
"You're married to a Cylon," Adm. Gaeta confessed to Roslin. :giggles:

I have since thought of a couple of more:

In Sports... Our New Caprica Buccaneers soundly defeated the Simons.

and a dual category entry just for you and Mamaboolj:

"How did you get hot fudge stains there?" Sharon asked.

I know I'm supposed to be trying to get 10 different genre examples, but I'm having so much fun with them one at a time that it may take awhile to collect them all.

You know you can do more than one, right? I plan to. I want to try the linear kind that tells a mini-story.

Rock on with the hot fudge!!! :drool:

I love the two newest ones! And they don't even have to be AU ... or crackfic, although you write crack so well I hope they are :)

Well, the last one was a sequel to one of your stories.

Crossovers:
"I'm Aaron Doral. Come with me if you want to live."

"Talk? Oh no, Miss Valerii... I expect you to die!"

For mamaboolj. Because, well, Whistler. :drool:

1. Angst
Elias hugged Sabre one last time.

2. AU
"Nicole, your illness isn't a problem. We can have sex."

3. Crackfic
Elias was clearly unhappy, but gamely stripping for charity.

4. Crossover
Elias smiled. His new model was perfect, in every way.

5. First Time
He'd missed the fucking vein and was bleeding like a pig.

6. Humor
"Am I still a straight A student?"
"Oh, my god."

7. Fluff
Nicole looked at the picture of puppyhood Sabre and sniffled.

8. Smut
With Nicole, even the condom was sexy.

9. H/C
Nicole drew his head to her shoulder and held him tightly.

10. UST
"Quit standing in the rain whenever you make me angry!"
