Casting quarters into wells that hold our dreams [09 Apr 2006|05:24pm]

ragnamuffin
It seems this community is sort of passing into oblivion. I really haven't had the time to do my part lately, and nobody else has responded much to the last few challenges. I'm expecting this spring and the following summer to be very busy for me, so while it's been fun, I'm gonna put this thing on ice for now. I won't stand in anyone's way if someone wants to pick it up and post their own challenges and drabbles, but I'm hopping off this ship for a while. Thanks for a good time. ♥

Write 100 words about a wish that came true and what happened afterwards, be it something from the books or something of your own imagination. Have fun. ♥

Dancing The Dress [17 Mar 2006|03:11pm]

ragnamuffin
Title: Dancing The Dress
Challenge Title: New In Fairyland
Books: Baby Be-Bop/Cinderella
Characters: Gazelle/Cinderella
Words: 100
Author's Notes: Gazelle, Dirk’s great grandmother, goes to Cinderella’s ball. These girls both find their freedom in a magical dress, in a figurative sense, and I thought that was something neat to work with.

She came to the ball full of sin but wrapped in silk; the devil’s bride dressed in cream-coloured hope. Drawn by the music and a longing to dance, she hoped to escape the wicked one’s curse.

Girls gasped and lords stared when she stepped up the stairs; rose-covered, fair, strewn with dawn’s last stars. As silence fell the prince lifted his gaze, and the heartbeat he skipped urged him; “Make her dance”. Asked for her hand, she gave him it all; her body and soul; dancing a love that streamed back through his arms.

At midnight, sin fled her world.

Challenge #14 [13 Mar 2006|11:38pm]

ragnamuffin
Challenge Title: New In Fairyland

This one might be a little tricky, but I think it can be a lot of fun too. Take a fairytale, or something akin to a fairytale - it can be a folktale or a legend if you like - and merge the main character with one of FLB's creation. As an example, Echo could be H.C. Andersen's Little Mermaid, with the appropriate alterations to the story. Then write 100 words about how the fairytale would be with this new hero or heroine.

Remember to specify which fairytales and fairytale characters you use, as well as which FLB books and characters. Do ask if you have any questions, and enjoy. ♥

Ready to Return [11 Mar 2006|12:33am]

[ mood | nostalgic ]

Title: Ready to Return
Challenge Title: In The Crystal Ball
Books: Dangerous Angels
Characters: Witch Baby
Words: 100
Author’s Notes: Set a few years after "Necklace of Kisses." Witch Baby, after taking some time to find herself, decides to go back to Angel Juan.

Witch Baby sat on a sun-baked desert rock, staring at the sky and pulling snarl-balls out of her short-cropped dark hair. After graduation, she'd driven across the Baja desert and through Mexico, taking photographs of dusty roadside altars and tiny children begging in the gutters, tourists shooting tequila and sad-eyed girls wearing hummingbird amulets. Living freely,tied to nothing but the road, her camera, and herself. But now, she knew it was time to return to her angel boy. They'd each learned to stand alone and now could truly love each other, without dependency or fear.

Until The End [10 Mar 2006|06:50pm]

ragnamuffin
Title: Until The End
Challenge Title: In The Crystal Ball
Books: Dangerous Angels
Characters: Cherokee and Coyote
Words: 100
Author’s Notes: Cherokee goes to visit an old friend, some decades after Cherokee Bat and the Goat Guys, when she is all grown up and he is an old man.

Cherokee’s feet followed the old track almost by themselves. Coyote sat waiting outside his house, shadows deepening the lines in his skin as the sun set. Cherokee sat down in silence by him, watching. “How are you doing?” she asked when night fell. “We are all doing very badly,” said Coyote, his voice soft and sad like the wind in the trees. “Have you lost hope?” Cherokee asked anxiously, but Coyote smiled, making his face look like cracked desert ground. “Hope is the last thing to go, child. I won’t give up on Earth before Earth gives up on me.”

Challenge #13 [08 Mar 2006|12:59pm]

ragnamuffin
Challenge Title: In The Crystal Ball

What will happen to your favourite characters in 20 years? Where will they be when they are old? What dreams will they fulfill, and what new ones will they have? What losses will they suffer? How will they look back at their youth and the beginning of it all?

Write 100 words about something that happens after the point where Francesca stopped writing the story. A year later, ten years or almost a lifetime - you can even skip a generation or two if you like. Have fun. ♥

Reclaiming Beauty [05 Mar 2006|12:59am]

[ mood | contemplative ]

Title: Reclaiming Beauty
Challenge Title: Mirror Mirror
Book: Baby Be-Bop
Characters: Gazelle Sunday (Dirk's great-grandmother)
Words: 100
Author's Notes: Gazelle tries on the genie's dress and rediscovers her own beauty.

She couldn't believe what she saw in the mirror. The cream-satin dress, soft and pure as innocence itself, enveloped her body in a silken swirl. Her face, illuminated with a joy long-forgotten, shone like the tiny crystal beads studding the gown's surface. She reached up and caressed her cheek, imagining the touch of a lover, of the man who had given her this greatest gift of all. Gazelle's aunt had always said that the body was something dirty, shameful, tainted by blood and desire. But for the first time, Gazelle felt truly beautiful, her body telling a story.

True Beauty // Queen In Her Land [04 Mar 2006|10:33pm]

ragnamuffin
Title: True Beauty
Challenge Title: Mirror Mirror
Book: Girl Goddess #9
Characters: Lady Ivory and Alabaster Duchess
Words: 100
Author's Notes: The awesome zinesters write for Girl Goddess #10 about a matter that is close to their hearts.

The glossy magazine girls are throwing away their bodies in the search for beauty’s shape. Like little lost caterpillars, they shred their cocoon again and again, not knowing that these are the wings they were meant to bear. Their transfusion into exuberant butterflies passed them by; they should be indulging in the display of their adolescence. Instead they will themselves to resemble the bony memories of their genderless youth. If they could see past jutting cheekbones and protruding ribs like claws of fear, they would find the goddess they were meant to be; soft, delicate outlines wrapping up their womanhood.

Queen In Her LandCollapse )

Girl In The Mirror [03 Mar 2006|12:26am]

hyper_faerie
[ mood | amused ]

Title: Girl In The Mirror
Challenge: Mirror Mirror
Book: Echo
Characters: Echo
Word Count: 100
Notes: Echo compares herself to her mother while looking in the mirror. (Sorry I haven't posted in forever, my life's been crazy for the past month and a half)

Echo pressed her hand against the cold glass and stared, wanting to see someone else looking back at her. But only a small, plain girl, sad-eyed and elfin, met her gaze. If she could, she'd rip out her toxic green-dyed hair and graft her mother's cascading strawberry waves to the scalp. Incinerate her palid skin until it transformed into smooth honey-tan radiance. Shredding her body open,tearing out everything that was her own--anything, anything,to look like the goddess who bore her. Uncaged tears blurred the reflection,for she knew this wish would never come true.

Crushed [28 Feb 2006|06:45pm]

[ mood | anxious ]

Title:In Pieces
Challenge: Mirror Mirror
Book: Missing Angel Juan
Characters: Witch Baby
Word Count: 100
Notes: I dont think i did too well but i tried, i also feel i didnt do well with my imagery, but please let me know so i can do it again lol

Witch baby wrapped herself inside the crushing folds of the purple silk. Her lanky arms tried so hard to grasp her tiny body, shaking away a feeling of self-doubt, only to bubble up again in the most remorse way. She finally slide to the ground, still holding on for dear life, the bones they only broke louder, squeezing the breath out of her concave chest, “breathe only for one more day” Crack, shatter and all was broken in front of her. It was just a mirror, but she saw more then the reflection would allow her to feel. Only Herself.

Challenge #12 [01 Mar 2006|02:31am]

ragnamuffin
Challenge Title: Mirror Mirror

I thought we'd try a picture challenge. I've picked three that I felt had something FLB-ish about them, and I imagine that we can think of something creative around mirrors and masks and body images and whatever comes to mind. It is not a crossover challenge, so the characters must still be FLB's; the pictures are just for inspiration. Write 100 words about whatever the pictures do for you and enjoy. ♥

Title: Beat
Challenge: Homes and Hearts
Book: Uh, something with Witch. I can never truly pick.
Characters: Witch Baby
Word Count: 100
Notes: I think this is more me than Witch or anything. So. Here goes.

When he left the first time, I tore up the drums. I wanted to kill the beat. Music wouldn’t happen for me anymore. Before I found him again, I found the new rhythms that pulsed within my veins. I thought that would be enough.

But it wasn’t. He left again and my own beat in my ears wasn’t enough to drown out the loneliness. I don’t quite know where to go from here. I think it’s time I left again, to try to find something that will keep me alive. This time, I don’t know if he’ll be coming back.

Title: Song Of Echo
Challenge Title: #10 Sound of A Story
Book(s): Echo
Character(s): Echo
Word Count:100
Author's Notes: Its been very difficult for me to write anything let alone something like this but i thought i'd try it anyway, please give me some tips and such to repair my writing style. i dont think i did to well on this one lol

Echo could feel the crushing inside from the ocean of tears fighting to smash into the cavity of her chest. She held in the torrent of the storm, keeping her stride quick, and in tempo with the shore. Collapsing on the sand she made herself sit up and take in gulps of air, only to swallow more tears. At last she heard the cracking of her smile as her laugh broke the silence, sliding down her tongue and echoing through the hollow parts of her bones. Breaking bones, and water unpleasantly washing away the stains left from before you ever came.

Lonely Sound [16 Feb 2006|10:52am]

loveisthenewpnk
Title: Lonely Sound
Challenge Title: #10 Sound of A Story
Book(s): Missing Angel Juan
Character(s): Angel Juan
Word Count:100
Author's Notes: This is my first drabble, and it's been awhile since I've written anything that wasn't for school. Constructive criticism is very welcomed!

The sound of rain mingled with the cries of tree spirits as the storm raged on. The boughs that held his treehouse swayed in the tempest winds as Angel Juan felt a pain unlike any he’d ever felt before. He could feel a heart ache pounding and reverberating against his chest like the sound of a snare drum dismantled and flung against the wall. He could hear painful thunder ripping through the air like a photo ripped to shreds. His arms felt sore from black and blue bruises that weren’t there. Nina Bruja, he whispered. But Witch Baby didn’t hear.

Stowaway Fairy // Bat Love Symphony [15 Feb 2006|01:17am]

ragnamuffin
Title: Stowaway Fairy
Challenge Title: Sound Of A Story
Book: I Was A Teenage Fairy
Character: Mab
Words: 100
Author's Notes: Mab explores the physical side of sound.

Mab spun through the night club like a flickering disco light, unnoticed in the middle of the crowd. The music vibrated heavily through the air and made flying as easy as walking on an avalanche; Mab felt drunk already, and she hadn’t stolen a single drop of liquor yet. Picking a target, she dived past waving hands and tumbled into the breast pocket of a black silk shirt, making the tiniest impact against his chest. Snuggling there happily, Mab let the drum of the dancer’s heart soak into her skin, grinning with anticipation as it grabbed control of her body.
