Quiet Christmas and Twelfth Meme
I've been really quiet lately, I know . . . not even commenting on posts, let alone posting, and not always online at all, except during fic_rush.   I miss you all!  A lot!  There is no great trauma or lurking trouble behind the quiet and absence; mostly, it's been a couple of dizzyingly busy months, with not a lot of energy.  We've had a very quiet and low-key Christmas as well.

Having entirely failed to write anything of substance in ages, I finally succumbed to the Twelve Characters meme, with handy generator, that Lost Spook and John Elliott whomped up between them.  However, before I post the cracky bits that I've already produced, I wanted to give the meme a chance to pick up even more random input from others.

So -- I have twelve characters.  If you have any prompts up your sleeve, feel free to present them in the comments!  If you've never seen this meme before, check out this journal entry for some samples.  Prompts need to use one or more of the mystery characters, by number.  (For example: "Six and Twelve have to cook dinner for Eight and Three.  What cuisine do they attempt?  Are they any good at it?  Why are they all having dinner together, and what happens when Two shows up uninvited?")

I swear I used a RNG for this and it still gave me the first two numbers from your example, so in the spirit of not cheating randomness, Twelve is teaching Six how to use a household appliance of your choice. Six has a vested interest in making the teaching process go slowly for some reason.

And now to roll the dice again:
Eight, Eight and One (Clones!? I dunno, it's what the RNG threw up) are competing against each other, and the stakes are either perilously high or ridiculously low. Either way, competition is fierce.

*snortle* Oh, my, I think I see what I can do with that . . . can your RNG give me two more random numbers?

Four and Five!

roflmao! Yeah, we can do something with that. It may end with calamari.

I have finally posted the results of this prompt! Double 8s with added numbers WTF!

Sometimes low-key and quiet is needed. Especially when life gets hectic!

LOL!! Those memes are always fun! Yet I'm terrible about prompting!


LOL the samples sound more like Doctor Who fanfic summaries than fic prompts.

I've seen the entire meme done with the assorted Doctors instead of twelve different characters from different fandoms. It's pretty damned weird like that, but hey, it's pretty damned weird in any case!

1 cooks 5 in a stew & serves it to 7

Been reading your Greek mythology lately, I see. ;)

Two and Three get into an argument during what should be a mundane shopping trip. What is the argument about, and how does Eleven solve it?

(that really does sound like a crack Whofic summary...)

That would make an exccellent Whofic!


8 and 12 have a snowball fight.

Also, I'm in. :D

9 and 3 are treasure hunting. Do they successfully follow the map and how are they at fairly sharing the treasure. And what do they do about 5 who is hunting them?

Great prompt! 3 and 5 have been getting more than their share of the activity, so I'm randomly reassigning them to a couple of unloved numbers.

It's a prompt lost_spook left me in an earlier meme, so I'm just plagiarising reusing it.

Two and Ten are both in love with Six. Who wins this romantic battle...or does Six have their heart set on One?
