The 15-Word Ficlet Meme!

I most recently saw this at nouvellebrielle's, although I know I've seen it other places as well. This was a real pain - sort of like doing a crossword puzzle and writing drabbles at the same time:

    
  1. Write down the names of 10 characters.
  2. Write a fic of fifteen words or less for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers. Do NOT read the prompts before you do step 1.

My characters were:

  1. Balalaika (Black Lagoon)
  2. Manji (Blade of the Immortal)
  3. Eda (Black Lagoon)
  4. Sanada Yukimura (SDK)
  5. Sanzo
  6. (Saiyuki)
  1. Gojyo (Saiyuki)
  2. Onime-no-Kyo (SDK)
  3. Hakkai (Saiyuki)
  4. Revy (Black Lagoon)
  5. Matsumoto Rangiku (Bleach)

I'll freely admit that I gave up on my first run. Then I used random numbers to re-sort the same list and got some really great crack. Can anybody guess which prompt+characters made me squee most?
 

First Time, 4 and 6 (Sanada Yukimura and Gojyo)

Not a woman. Then a hot tongue licked down his belly, and Gojyo stopped worrying.
 

Angst, 7 (Onime-no-Kyo)

Kyo weakly raised his head and saw Yuya, a too-familiar mark marring her chest.
 

AU, 1 and 8 (Balalaika and Hakkai)

"So," said the star commander grimly. "You seek a suicide mission?"

"Just so," answered Hakkai.
 

Threesome, 3, 6, 9 (Eda, Gojyo, Revy)

Revy couldn't look away as Eda straddled the rakish redhead. Their lecherous grins were identical.
 

Hurt/Comfort, 5 and 10 (Sanzo, Rangiku)

"Is that better?" Rangiku crooned. Sanzo smacked her hand away. "I'm not hurt there, pervert!"
 

Crack, 1 (Balalaika)

Balalaika appeared, a vision in crinolined pink silk and Valenciennes lace, her hands clasped demurely.
 

Horror, 10 (Rangiku)

As the shambling shadow advanced on her, Rangiku raised Haineko threateningly: "Not one step further!"
 

Baby Fic, 5 and 9 (Sanzo and Revy)

"I don't do diapers," said Sanzo, flatly.

"Fuck it, and I do?" Revy snarled back.
 

Dark, 2 and 8 (Manji and Hakkai)

"Damn, don't stop!" gasped Manji.

Hakkai, shuddering, again squeezed the living heart in his hand.
 

Romance, 4 and 7 (Sanada Yukimura and Onime-no-Kyo)

"Ahhh!" said Yukimura: "Okunomatsu sake! I love you!"

Kyo smirked as he lit his pipe.
 

Death Fic, 2 and 3 (Manji and Eda)

Eda's breathing was ragged: "Hey, Manji ... did I get that bastard?"

"Yeah, babe, you did."

15-word ficlets

The cracky thing about the Manji-Hakkai scene is I'm not even certain 100% what's happening there ... originally, I had Hakkai just trying to put him back together, but as it got more and more terse, the scene started to morph a bit ... .

The baby fic ... my God, none of my list are terrific parent material (although Gojyo and Rangiku could grow into it, and Yukimura can at least do the older brother thing), but that's certainly two of the least likely!

Re: 15-word ficlets
Hee! Uncle Gojyo's standards of household cleanliness and nutritous meals, use of poker as a teaching aid, bad habits and colorful vocabulary would probably horrify all the nice respectable parents in town...but that child would grow up never having a moment's doubt that they were safe and loved.
