Protected: borrowed from Reinette (ambitious_woman)
Fandom: Dr. Who / RPF
Prompt: Everything Passes
Notes: Reinette has a beautiful descriptive style unlike anyone else’s. Her imagery is crisp and evocative and this one is quite beautiful in discussing Reinette’s inner thoughts and feelings about the Doctor and herself.
Prompt: 37.4 – Motivations
Notes: Dr. Luka Kovac is often a tragic figure, and this post shows in stark detail how a trigger issues from a past event can invade upon the present and cast aside all that a person believes in. It is very powerfully presented.
Author:zee_ali – Ziyah
Prompt: Face Down
Notes: NC-17 – NSFW (languange/ violence/sex) As I mentioned in my commentary on the post, it takes a special writer with a skilled hand to write violence well. There is always too much of a temptation to either go overboard or not give enough detail. In spite of the fact that the muse’s death is described in horrific and vivid imagery, it is masterfully done. I highly recommend as a fabulous example of what to do right!
Fandom: Three Musketeers / Lost Boys / Highlander (crossover)
Prompt: 38.8.1 – “I am not completely without Mercy”
Notes: R – rated This is part of an ongoing project that many muns and muses are working on. I think that the post is tied beautifully and done in the descriptive and yet incredibly brutal style that is Captain Rochefort’s alone. Besides my partiality, it is a great piece of writing that deals with sensitive issues of war and it’s escalation.
Fandom: Velvet Goldmine
Prompt: Mouth to Mouth
Notes: R Leans a little toward NSFW – Curt Wild wakes up being given mouth to mouth by a complete stranger and what ensues is very interesting indeed. I love much of what this particular muse writes. It is so very in canon. I have found very few writers that write what I would consider to be decent slash. This is one of those authors that treats of m/m relationships sensually and sensitively without being too voyeuristic.
Prompt: Naked Woman
Notes: What does a vampire do when he comes home to a naked woman on his desk? A very humorous post!
WM – 38.8 – Letters – A Correspondence with Hsu Danmei (civ_barbarian)
Select a RP partner to write a series of letters back and forth with. Let your muse convey the events of a particular incident between the two of them . Don’t be afraid to explore all the places where such written correspondences can go.
OOC: This correspondence takes place in the mid-17th Century, immediately after the death of Faelyn’s husband, Monsieur le Comte de Rochefort, Sebastien all_forme

TM – Black & White
There is no such thing as black and white in the Realms of Magic. In fact, suffice it to say that in the Seven Realms of Existence, such polarities are such ridiculous constructs cobbled together by the dogmatic, the fearful and the overall unimaginative minions – usually at the behest of their betters. Such things are a way and means by which to control the masses. And the first step in avoiding such traps of mind and spirit is being aware of their existence. All magic is in fact varying shades of gray. The use of Magic, the endeavor of the Great Work, is really at the discretion of the one who wields the tool. Whether we choose to admit to it or not, the ability to make use of these things is as much a part of Life as anything else. Everything we do is a matter of intention. Whatever is a magical act, the only thing that changes it from “white” to “black”, positive or negative, good or ill, is the intent of the user. Nothing more…and certainly nothing less.
There are so-called Light and Dark Sidhe. Some base these comparisons on our physical appearance, or the realms that we inhabit. There are those who determine that the Seelie are to be considered the “Light” or ‘White” Fae and the Unseelie to be the “Dark” or “Black” Fae. Such considerations are bandied about as if somehow you can tell on sight those who would do you ill or grant you boon based on appearances alone. The oleander flower is breathtakingly beautiful – and white, and yet within it is harbored the most deadly of poisons. I have seen such Seelie cruelties that it would even take a hardened Unseelie assassin aback. Using such distinctions to connote that one side is better than the other, or that their intentions are fare more wholesome when held next to the other’s is the mark of the spiritually and experientially immature. All of us in our way and in our time could be accused of lighter or darker intentions or things that motivated the ends. But that would only further muddy the waters.
Sometimes one has to do a particularly black deed or deeds in order to preserve the overall balance of things.

Writing Meme from ursa_mater
OOC NOTE: Originally I posted this over at my mun journal, niankhsekhmet HERE. I am reposting it here because Fanny interacts with far more muses here and the fact I use this LJ more than my mun journal. (Hey, this one is a permanent account! What do you expect?)
So to be completely redundant to some of you, it works like this; Give me some lyrics (JUST A COUPLE LINES, PLEASE) and I will write for you something about one of your characters and one of mine. I know many of you have many characters, and if my muses have not interacted with yours for a while, just mention something to help jog my memory!
And ALTERNATIVELY for … people who don’t or who have not RP’ed with me or my muses, pick some lyrics, and I shall find a muse to respond with a few paragraphs…or something. Trust me, I have a few in addition to the ones above.
The short list of my muses are fannyfae, nomanselizabeth, faery_ring. sheldonsandscia, sekhmet_mrytamn and a few others I am not telling but a few of you know already. 😉
One last thing; I know that I interact with several people who have more than one muse. To those muns, you can post more than once, so have that muse comment and one of mine will pop in and write a scene with them. 😉

– Scenario E
E. The news came on, and it has been announced that your very favorite food or drink is now outlawed by international law. The punishment for sale, growing, distribution or consumption is severe. Can you live without it? What length would you go to get it?
During the Occupation in France, this was the reality. During that time, the shadow that was Nazi Germany shadowed all of Europe. Within the cities this was especially true. Those of us who were in the countryside had less of an issue, but foodstuffs would go for exorbitant prices. The Vichy government responded by issuing tickets that could be used in exchange for basic items such as meat, butter and cooking oil. Everyone, during that time, it seemed, was hungry.
