So I was glancing through the springkink promptings because ellnyx was discussing a few of them, and my cat just woke me at 6am.

First impressions:

1. Where is the yuri? I see a Talia/Susan tucked away in there, and a very few FFs, but that's it.

2. Why did Sulu/Checkov become the OTP of the new Trek movie?  Not that I object to the pairing, but it always puzzles me how a fandom seems to circle the wagons around one particular non-canon ship. (Then again, my fandom latched onto Aurikku. Damn you, fandom.)

3. This prompt? (Nov. 10) 

- Final Fantasy X - any/all - drunken antics/karaoke - "and she's buying a stairway to Yevon..."

I just got unintentional revenge on the cat by howling with laughter. It was a refreshing change from all the serious prompts.

What? Someone is prompting for Babylon 5? How exciting! (Of course no one will claim it. Because no one ever claims the GOOD prompts. Just the eight billion varieties of Kingdom Hearts slash and FF7 triplet porn. Yeah, I'm bitter.)

After four rounds, I got very disenchanted with Springkink. There's too much crawling through the drek to find one or two halfway decent prompts or fics.

Are You Game, on Dreamwidth, is a little like Springkink but purely game-fandom-focused, and often has a slightly better variety of prompts.

(I'd like these prompt-challenge deals a lot better if you were restricted in how many things you could prompt for. Sixteen variations of Axel/Roxas in a car is a bit much, I think.)

I wish I could, but between the fact that I never seem to finish deadline-fic -- which is why I didn't dare sign up for ff_exchange -- and my doubts that I could write Susan/Talia (especially this prompt: "uniform fetish - 'It ain't no victory, but I don't care, I don't care if it's wrong or right'"), I'd better not claim it.

The Babylon 5 prompt was for Nov 6. Just in case someone does write it.

There are a heck of a lot of prompts on springkink that I would never have considered as having potential, had ellnyx not sucked me into her disturbing little world. EG:

(Nov 3) -Final Fantasy XII- Drace/Gabranth(Basch)-deception- “If you can fool her, you can fool them all.”
(Nov 7) -Crossover: Final Fantasy VII/Final Fantasy XII, Hojo, Dr Cid, Balthier, Sephiroth: science fetish - happy families are all alike.

FOR SCIENCE! *twitchety twitch*

....oh. Oh man. That Drace prompt. OUCH. my heart breaks for them all over.

The crossover one hurts my brain in a hilarious way. XD
