the first line challenge
rules: list the first lines of the last ten stories you published. look to see if there are any patterns that you notice yourself, and see if anyone else notices any! then tag some friends.
I guess I was tagged by anon, so whoever that was, thanks. Thanks, too, to the second (or was it the same?) anon who suggested that I use unpublished WIPs to supplement my few published stories. In return, I guess I tag literally whoever wants to do this (but specific authors who come to mind include @romanimp @hailqiqi @sp4c3-0ddity @amillionsmiles @rueitae so lol have at it friends).
PUBLISHED FIRST LINES
Alternity (VLD sort-of-canon-compliant-sort-of-not fic; Lance/Pidge; active WIP).
What nobody tells you about nearing the end of an intergalactic war is this: It can get pretty boring.
Camp Pining Hearts (Steven Universe human/summer camp AU fic; Lapis/Peridot; complete) (A.K.A. MY PRIDE AND JOY).
The second the van rolled off the highway, the passenger-side window—upon which Peridot’s cheek was leaning—cracked open and began to slide down her face.
Tell Laura I Love Her (Carmilla 1960s AU fic; Carmilla/Laura; inactive WIP, probably abandoned).
“You ready, Laur?”
UNPUBLISHED FIRST LINES
Pining Hearts University: Thanksgiving Break (working title) (the Camp Pining Hearts sequel; Lapis/Peridot; active WIP).
Untitled Fic #1 (an Alternity companion/prequel/sequel fic from the alt!reality side of things; Lance/Pidge; inactive WIP).
The transition was subtle.
Untitled Fic #2 (a VLD 1960s AU fic, in which Voltron is actually a band; Lance/Pidge; inactive WIP, probably abandoned).
The club itself pulsed with energy.
The Delmarva County Attorney’s Office (Steven Universe human/law school AU fic; Lapis/Peridot; inactive WIP, probably abandoned).
When Peridot first secured her internship at the Delmarva County Attorney’s Office, she had expected a summer full of enriching experience, because wasn’t that the point?
WHAT I’VE LEARNED FROM THIS
I’m a slut for AUs (especially 1960s AUs).
