annwyd: *knucklecracks* Time to write SURPRISE BUTTSECKS for Sadie.I hesitate to jinx the process by saying that things look good...but well, they do. The USB drive works fine on this computer, and I am currently in the process of transferring all my stuff over from Mom's computer to said drive. When I am done, I will be able to do another iteration of The Lyrics Meme with all my music, and this time I'll actually eventually provide the answers!
moonsheen: ...I read that as SURPRISE BUTTSECKS for Sado.
annwyd: Great. Now I'm picturing his expression.
annwyd: No. No strap-on for Karin.
moonsheen: ...maybe on a special occasion.
annwyd: For her birthday. Or possibly his.
For now, instead I'll do a more personalized version of the "first lines" meme that's floating around: I'm going to list the first paragraphs of all the unfinished fic I have sitting on my computer, not including "Spiral Out" and "Firebird." Maybe this will inspire me to finish some more of them.

If the first lost child he'd taken in hadn't been the boy with the squinting eyes and the snake's smile, things might have turned out differently. But then again, they probably wouldn't have.
Tenten is dying, and she can't see why everyone is making such a fuss.
Hanatarou looks at the figures in the doorway before him, and he realizes that this is when his life is supposed to flash before his eyes.
When he returns to Konoha with Rin, his sensei, and part of Obito, Kakashi spends a while being very sick.
Kurosaki Ichigo would have been a normal boy, except that normal boys don't see ghosts. Next to that, his orange hair is inconsequential.
Kaylee woke up to a less-than-gentle rocking.
It was the coldest winter that Sakura could remember. Then again, maybe she was just projecting.
It was the mission of their lives, of this Tenten had no doubt. The problem was that they were seventeen years old and it could easily also be the mission to end their lives.
In one moment, Sakura was stalking back into Konoha, bloodied but determined, dragging both her boys behind her. In the next, she was on the ground in a heap.
