I'm hardly part of Five-0 fandom. I've written one story, barely seen a couple episodes, and only read fic for it from time to time. Still, this post really spoke to me. I've been feeling a lot of my enthusiasm for writing begin to drain in the last year. Part of it may simply be burnout, but a lot of it has been just how quiet fandom seems to have gotten of late. I write because I love to, and because the stories that pop into my head will drive me crazy if I don't, but there are times when I feel like no one is reading, and I really begin to question why I even bother.

I really feel this challenge could benefit everybody—every fandom, every community out there. I think that just by acknowledging authors and posters whenever we can however we might be able to inject new life into the internet places we all love.

I'm going to be sharing this in the comms I am the most active in, and I encourage you to do the same.

I blame [livejournal.com profile] uberniftacular for this. Her works under this meme were brought up in her recent Icon Meme, and I was inspired.

(Oh, and if you think this is at all interesting, you should check out her show Underground. I would totally watch the shit out of that...)

Readers of my Life AU fics for Castle may recognize Reggie Simpson and Dr. Janet Waters, as they were both minor OCs in those stories. Because this version of Slice of Life builds off of Reggie's role in that, some characters reflect Castle characters somewhat in their roles, but I promise they are not the same people.

Though, it's entirely [livejournal.com profile] cyren_2132's fault if I wind up attempting to write this as a novel for NaNo. -.-

1. Comment to this post with "I surrender!" and I'll assign you the basis of some TV show idea.
2. Create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them.
3. Add in any actor photos, character bios, and show synopsis that you want.
4. Post to your own journal and/or the [livejournal.com profile] isurrendered community on DW or LJ.

Title: Slice of Life
Prompt: "A zombie apocalypse where the zombies are the good guys!" by [livejournal.com profile] theladyscribe
(Er...minus the apocalypse. Sorry.)
Type: Hour-long procedural mystery/drama, with a horror twist. Late prime-time on NBC.
Setting: Modern day New York, with an alternate history.
Starring: Christopher Heyerdahl, Mehki Phifer, Sean Maher, Jane Lynch, Genevieve Cortese, Moon Bloodgood, Jaimie Murray, Dougray Scott, John Glover, Ali Larter.
Opening Credits: "Shadows" by Lindsey Sterling (from 1:20 to 1:43, blending into 2:28 to 2:50).
Features time-lapse sequences of public places where the action is sped up with the exception of one or two pale, dejected looking people. The final sequences center on Reggie. (Inspired by the Slipknot video "Vermillion" and the opening to 4400.)
Closing Credits: Reprise of "Shadows".
Synopsis: Like most people, Homicide Detective Gordon Atwood (Phifer) has lived most of his life blissfully unaware of the daily lives of post-vitals—an undead minority that has existed on the fringes of society since the early '60s. Reggie Simpson (Heyerdahl) is a post-vital counselor—his job is to guide newly-infected post-vitals, helping them cope with the strange hardships of their new lives. When one of Reggie's patients is accused of murder, Reggie poses as the man's lawyer. After providing information on post-vitals clearing his patient of the crime, Reggie finds himself attached to the investigation as Atwood and his partner, Alex Keyes (Maher), investigate a gang extorting post-vitals. Reggie is later tapped by Atwood to consult on other cases involving post-vitals.

Or: Gordon is a cop, Reggie is a zombie, together they fight crime. )

The meme:

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!

[livejournal.com profile] claudiapriscus recently made a post about her (very debatable) suckitude due to her massive number of WIPs, and outlined several of them meme-style in her journal. I commented that if I tried to do a similar post, I would be writing all goddamned week...

And yet, here I am.

[livejournal.com profile] claudiapriscus:
"And that leads me to this: my list of shame. The usual memes just do sentences from WIPs, but I kind of like the idea of describing the story and the point and triyng to explain why I haven't gotten around to finishing it. It's very motivational. You all should do it too!"

My WIPs! Let me show you them! )

Is anyone else having problems with email notifications? It's driving me bugnuts. I feel like I'm missing out on all the important things going on on the internet. T_T

Also, as I was forcing my sister to read the CastlexEagle fic I recently posted, I realized that I've posted content for every day so far this week. In the interest of continuing that streak, I thought I'd open myself up to another meme stolen from [livejournal.com profile] coffeebuddha:

Give me a link to one of my fics or WIPs, and I'll give you details that didn't make it into the fic. Background canon, deleted scenes, or a look into the future. My choice, but if you have a specific question you can ask it in your request.

(though, again, warnings regarding my notifications...*grumble*)

Stealing a meme from [livejournal.com profile] _bluebells:

Post the first sentence (or three) from every WIP you're currently working on, even if it's very short. Then invite people to ask questions about your WIPs. With any luck, you'll get talking about writing, and the motivation to take that WIP one step closer to completion will appear as if by magic!

This is nowhere near complete.

I'm anal, though, so these are short excerpts rather than first lines. Bear with me...
