Lob Yer Plotbunnies at Me!

The (Cyber) Bag of Weasels

bread and puppet

"About as much fun as a bag of weasels"...when I first saw this Irish adage, it made me think of the life of a writer: sometimes perilous, sometimes painful, certainly interesting. My paper journal has always been called "The Bag of Weasels." This is the Bag of Weasels' online home.

Lob Yer Plotbunnies at Me!

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
Yes, I hear the title of this post with a pirate accent when I read it. :)

I am wanting to write today. What? Write?? Yes! I do still know how to do that, I hope, although I haven't done it in a while, since about B2MeM. Yikes.

Anyway, I don't know what to write. I want to write something Silmarillion-based; I have an o-fic bunny already but don't really feel like working on that. So ... have at me! Any requests? I can't guarantee I'll write everything I get but who knows--I might!

Now off to grout the kitchen floor. :^|
  • Maglor shortly after the Nírnaeth Arnoediad, better even if he is worrying about Maedhros. (I really want in a back-handed way to think about Maedhros.)
  • Nerdanel. Anything you want, really. You know I love the way you write her.

    Or... Maglor decides to sail home - when and why?

    *sends you good writing vibes!*
    • I second Nerdanel!! I kind of want to see her interacting with other ladies after Feanor & Co. left for M-e.

      PS - Always loved that device you made for Nerdanel, Elleth. Really beautiful, I think it suits her very well. :)
  • I was going to say Maglor and his wife before/during/after Alqualonde but it seems you're getting mostly Maglor requests.

    Plan B: Aredhel and the Feanorians or her brothers/father in Aman or M-e.
  • Tyelko kills his first prey, and his reactions to it. Eum... Finarfin during the darkening of Valinor as he tries to find a way to make amends to his wife Aearwen after the kinslaying and the departure of their kids. Finwë who realises that he has fallen in love with Míriel (or Indis)... want more?

    Go write, you so deserve that!
    • I always want more! :D I'm trying to make writing more of a priority again. (How many times have I said that in the last five years??) I'm hoping to get a collection of prompts together for days when I want to write but just don't know what to write! :D
  • Something with the women of Elendil and Isildur's family, if you do Numenoreans?

    Implications of Fingon being a Kinslayer and how that affected who turned back and who went on after Alqualonde?
  • I'd like to read something with ratings (M, R-NC-17), but in small sizes - drabble or mini. Recently I found that it's very difficult!
    So could you try to do something with Fëanorians? Maedhros/Fingon or something rare... Or even het! Oh, Erestor/Glorfindel will be welcome too)))
  • Something G or PG rated featuring Huan and maybe Luthien, if you feel inspired.
  • I'm feeling odd today - so how about you spin the tail of "Princess and the Flea". (yes, misspelling intended. ) Princes is obviously an Elven cat, caught in a spell launched by a jealous lover who also turns her beloved into a .... yup, a flea. And lo, she and the flea flee and thus begins their adventure that will allow her to break the curse and stop scratching at the flea...and then apologizing... and they will live mysteriously ever after.

    Okay - YOU started it with the "Lob yer plotbunnies..." ;-)

  • I'm looking for fun today to keep spreading the positive ripples, so how about a bit of hide-and-seek in the forge for a young Maitimo and Macalaure and Feanaro... There are lots of great cubbies to hide in and behind and any parent would be concerned if the children were young enough in that dangerous environment. It could be really cute...or not. Certainly pretty dirty - baths required at the end of the day.

    - Erulisse (one L)
    • Oh man, i second this. If i wasn't in the same room as my mom right now, i make make squeaky noises, because yes this please?
  • It looks like you have a lot of great plotbunny ideas there. But here's another - I've just returned from seeing Ice Age 4, so it gave me the idea for a parent/child argument/conflict, or better - Maedhros and Fingon falling out over an idea or belief that they disagree on - Maedhros is obviously Fingon's favourite of the brothers, but in the wake of the chill between them that lasts far too long, Fingon becomes friendly with one of the other brothers. It's up to you to decide which one, and more importantly, why. And what would happen to this friendship once Fingon restablishes his friendship with Maedhros. (I was thinking Maglor, right before the cliff-hanging, but you can write whatever you want based on whatever idea strikes you.) ;)
  • Feanor botches something in his workshop. Big time. Not happy. One of his children comes to the rescue.
  • Something about Turin and Labadal? *puppy dog eyes*

    Or maybe some Earendil/Elwing?

    Or anything with Olorin!

    Oh: did the grouting go well?

    Edited at 2012-07-21 09:46 pm (UTC)
    • Ugh. (On the grouting, not the plotbunnies, which are great! :D)

      Turns out there was still a lot that needed to be removed (it was done improperly the first time and started cracking), so I've been doing that for the last few hours. The buzzing Dremel tool made my hands kinda numb--it feels really weird!--and made my ears ring. I loathe doing this kind of stuff! At least I got it half-finished, and the second half of the kitchen doesn't look like it will need nearly as much work.

      Thanks for asking--I'd be looking for an excuse to whine about it! :D
    • (no subject) - with_rainfall - Expand
  • I am wanting to write today.

    What is that chilly breeze blowing from yon Hellmouth? ;^)

    No prompts from me. You already have quite a few as it is. I'll just sit back and read.
  • I know I'm a noob, and am not sure if I SHOULD ask for anything... but after trying to write my own fic about the Feanorians (and failing miserably), I've wondered: Curufin and Celegorm seem to cling to each other much as Maedhros and Maglor do; they always seem to be together, and I've personally never seen fic as to why. (I thought maybe the succession issue, but uhhh... :/) That may just be my limited sampling of the available fan fiction, of course.

    Obviously this is an exercise I should do, as I think I need to understand all seven if I'm going to write about any of them, but I'm interested in your interpretation.

    Anyway, if you end up writing various combos of Maedhros, Maglor, and Fingon, I will sit back and enjoy, and lavish you with praise. There isn't enough in the world for me.
    • Yes you should ask! :) I'm glad you did. I don't do the whole "too new to have an opinion" thing. ;)

      I love your idea! I've done relatively little writing about Curufin (compared to his elder brothers anyway), but I have an idea about why he and Celegorm stick together. In my verse anyway. The problem is that it's a looooong story, and complex, something that unfolded over time. :^| But I will definitely write something with this in mind!
  • How about Fingon and Finarfin after Alqualonde? Alternatively, Finarfin meeting Maedhros and Maglor during/after the War of Wrath. Alternatively, Finarfin meeting Melkor after the War of Wrath. That would be fun.

    I think you can tell I am a Finarfin-fan. :-)
