Lost fic prompts - random generator!

A few days ago, I posted a fic challenge to spur people to write characters or pairings or interactions they never had before. The ideas was to print a list of character names and object/setting prompts and cut them up and draw them out of a hat and -- voila, there's your fic prompt.

I regretted that I was too old school to come up with a script to randomly generate a set of prompts.

But lo and behold, jcd1013 wrote one for me! And she added more, better object prompts so this really has endless possiblities now. YAAAY! This is so awesome. I'm just blown away!

Go here.

A few brave souls already signed up for my "drawn from a hat" prompts and eponine119 already wrote three new ficlets and they're complely amazing.

So go, get some prompts and write some surprising, unusual fic! ;-D

That generator is super cool!

(Although it gave me Aaron, Charlie and a teddy bear when I went. So normal! There's something to be said for human intervention.)

It's my new toy! ;-D And I got "Charlie/Claire/secrets" just now and that's a bit ordinary as well. *pushes button again*

I had a few more "hat" requests so I gave those out the old fashioned way before pimping the snazzy new online method.

I SHIT YOU NOT...
Your fanfic challenge is to write about Jack and Kate with an optional object prompt of Alcohol.

*Giggles like mad*

Don't worry, I won't be lame, I'll do a different one. ;)

Wow, that is handy. And thank god I have my prompt from the other day to work on and get my mind off less pleasant things...I'm ACTUALLY getting it done, which makes my procrastinating butt happy. HEE!

*laughs insanely*

I couldn't resist taking a look at the fic generator and the first pairing it came up with for me..... Charlie/Sayid!!! How amusing... I have no idea how I would ever be able to write that. ;)

*runs away giggling*

It's psychic! Did you see big time Jater got rogueapprentice got Jack/Kate/alcohol?

Strangely, Sawyer has never popped up for me when I've used it. ;-D

My result bummed me out.

I got Libby, Shannon, and a bottle of shampoo. :(

Awww. That's not even workable, really is it? Try again!

Unless it's post-mortem. :-(

This time I got Sayid, Boone, and the Ocean. O-kay, I give up.

Awwww, I'm sorry, hon. Third time's the charm? You can ask for more prompts at once and then have more of a selection.

Finally! Back in the land of the living! This time I got Claire, Jin, and a backpack. Hmm. Interesting.

I don't write, but I wanted to check it out anyway. I got... Ethan and Bernard with an optional object prompt of Underwear. How wrong would that be? Maybe Bernard soiled his underwear while watching Ethan drag off and/or torture one of his fellow tailaways? *grin* (And talk about your minor characters. Characterization would be pretty darn hard considering they've each only said a handful of lines.)

Okay, just for the heck of it, I decided to click on it again, and I got... Ana Lucia and Shannon with an optional object prompt of Wounds. Huh. Maybe the writers used this to come up with the last episode? Okay, I'm done now. *grin*

Ha! Not all of them will be workable. Some are waaaay off and others are dead on, aren't they?

I got the much less appropriate Ana Lucia/Shannon and ... headache. Hmmm. I took a few I might write, but not that one!

That generator is awesome. I got some mad crazy things, yo.

My favorite has to be "Your fanfic challenge is to write about Walt and Bernard with an optional object prompt of Spear." Riiight.

Some of the other ones I actually have bunnies for. We'll see how it goes *excited*
