10 Ways Meme

I'm hoping this will add fuel to my yuletide fic finishing fire!

10 Ways You Can Tell You're Reading a Fic by htbthomas... (stolen from slynn6776)

10. There will be an ellipsis every few paragraphs...

9. Characters will use lots of PG-13 language.

8. The story will go on at least twice as long as she originally promises.

7. Every once in a while there are touches of clairvoyance.

6. The laugh is gone for over the schmoop.

5. If a character can get into an awkward situation, they will.

4. Superpowers are good for almost anything!

3. Looking for something other than a canon pairing? Look elsewhere.

2. Identity porn far outweighs the regular kind.

1. Gotcha! *Margot!Lois grin*

Feel free to add to the list... :D

#1 was meant to be that... Maybe I shouldn't have made it a cliffie, too! :D

I guess that it isn't really... I just need to learn that I can't predict the length of mynown stories! :D

I'm guilty of #10, Babs. So guilty. Look at any of my comments for instance...
See that, right there? ;)

9. Happens a lot too, depending on the fic. I've thrown some slang in to some fics but those were RPFs.

5. Ooohhhh. I like this one. Should I feel guilt of that too? I can't get away from some of this, lol. :p

Now how does one do this meme? I make a list of my own is it? :)

Hahaha!! All so true, except as Lea pointed out, there will be a cliffhanger!

Also #2 is definitely my favorite of the list. *grins*

LOL, yeah, #1 was supposed to BE a cliffhanger... I'm a little too vague sometimes. :D

Oh, yes, I'm all about #2. ♥
