Happy LJ-versary to me!

A year ago today, after encouragement from louisemcgregor and therealmarajade, I set up an account here at LiveJournal. And now I absolutely cannot live without this place. I have made so many great friends here that I never would have met otherwise. You all rock!

And so I have a couple of gifts for you. I got this idea from the DC comics fandom girls, who enjoy creating birthday fics and art for each other on their birthdays. I have been privileged myself to receive something this way. So! Here's how it will work:

I will write a short (500-1000 words) ficlet for you for your birthday!
1) Give me at least two weeks notice - ETA: Earlier is fine, I have figured out a good way to keep track!
2) Choose a fandom listed in my profile - but if you have a different request, it wouldn't hurt to try
3) Prompt me with a short story idea
4) Enjoy the surprise!

I can't promise that it will be anything award-winning, but it will be a gift from the heart. ♥

Tomorrow, I will post jenn_1's birthday fic, and one for mark_clark is also in the works.

And for a little gift right now, this little tune - a fluffy, upbeat song about how important your friendships are to me! Geoff Moore and the Distance - A Friend Like U

*kisses* all around!

Oh, I suppose I should add myself to your list? *feels guilty imposing and all that*

My birthday's 14 May and I'd really like something either in the L&C or Smallville 'verse that's got a Lois coming to the realization that she's attracted to Clark. It can be horrified (or not), humorous or angsty, your pick!

Oh, don't feel guilty! I especially want to do this for my long-time LJ buds!

I think I'll do Smallville, unless another plot bunny strikes. Will add to the calendar!

I'm a week away on 4/2, but if you get bored, here's a prompt:

Either -

Smallville UST: Lois does something that sparks deeper feelings in Clark or

Original Superman movie verse - Lois and Clark get a little flirty.

Like I said, I'm not expecting anything, but I saw your link and decided to come on over.

Hmm, I will certainly give it a try! I usually need a little more notice, but if you don't mind a belated fic, I'll be happy to. :)

Not sure which one I'll do. I'll mark them both down. :)

Thank you for even considering this...
OK - my Belated Birthday Ficlet Request:

Fandoms: Superman Returns/Smallville crossover
Character: Jason White
Prompt: I don't care how and why (it's a need-not-to-know mystery), Jason appears at Smallville. Someone discovers he's Clark's son. Jason's age and SV season I leave to you.

OR

Fandoms: DCU/Smallville crossover
Character: Kon-el
Prompt: I don't care how and why (it's a need-not-to-know mystery), Kon appears at Smallville. He knows he's parentage and is fine with it. Someone discovers he's Clark and Lex's son.

Re: Thank you for even considering this...
I think I could do the first one more easily... can it be future Smallville? Or is this a dimension/time-traveling sort of crossover?

My birthday isn't until the 26th of june, but I thought I might as well give it a shot.

I'd like a story set pre-OMD, would be even better if it's set before Peter switches sides. Where Spidey is confronted by either Gayle Watson or Anna Watson.

The meeting that Marvel didn't think was important enough to show.

(well that or a general little story of Peter in civillian having to deal with people knowing he's Spidey post the unmasking and before he went to Cap's side. )

Hi, Barb...my birthday's coming on July 7...!

I can't help but think 'what if' Chloe hadn't have interrupted Lois and Clark's talk in 'Artic'!? Humm!?

Or whatever you write will be fine with me and I'll love every word, you know that!

Thanks, hon!

I can do that one! I'll have to ponder a bit... :D

My birthday is June 22. Since I think an NC-17 smut filled fic would be difficult to do in a mini fic, I'll go a different route and ask for Clark and Jason when Jason knows he is Superman but doesn't know Clark is his father. It can be from any verse or not a verse at all.

Alrighty! Added to calendar!

My birthday was last year just after you started writing birthday ficlets, so I'm late to the party but you said yes earlier on.

I've had a good long think about what to request and I've been thinking I'd love to see a Runaways fic about Molly, particularly her first birthday with the Runaways after her parents died.

I like the time best just after True Believers when Vic had just joined them but other heinously sad stuff hadn't happened yet (see me trying not to spoil people and failing, lol).

A birthday ficlet about a birthday. Does that sound do-able? :D

Sure! I can do that! Just give me the date again, and I'll add it to the calendar. :)

Well, I'm not one of your "friends" but I've enjoyed Deja Vu, and when I saw the tag at the end of "Fair Play" saying you'd write b-day fics, I thought I'd comment and see if you'd be willing to write one for me anyway. My birthday is July 30.

You said we could ask for things even if they're not listed in your profile, and I'm interested in what you'd do with the Batman Beyond cartoon: I'd like to read about Mrs. McGinnis finding out that Terry is Batman (or, conversely, not finding out, but either way dealing with an issue the series ignored), or about Bruce and Tim rebuilding their relationship after "Return of the Joker." Or, ooh, something about Barbara Gordon--how does she balance her present career as Police Commissioner with her past as Batgirl, and does her husband know what she used to be?

If you've never seen Batman Beyond, here's a Superman Returns prompt for Clark and Richard. Like it or not, Richard's the one Jason calls "Daddy," but Clark is Jason's "real" father. Richard really is a good man, and Clark was gone a long time. (I know you usually do Clark/Lois, which usually I'm a big fan of, but for this I'd prefer Richard/Lois, if that's all right.)

If none of these strike your fancy, don't worry about it.

BTW, I don't do birthday fics myself, but I do occasionally solicit prompts to write on my LJ. I'm not collecting prompts now, but I'll probably do so in a month or so when my ficathon stories are done, and you're welcome to drop on by and request one.

You're actually the second person to request a fic who hasn't been on my friends' list. Of course, now she and I are friends... which leads me to ask: friends?

I have seen Batman Beyond, though not every episode. And I've seen ROTJ as well, but it's been a few years now. I think I still have my copy somewhere...

The other one is also good - I don't mind Richard/Lois, though I tend to prefer it have a "doomed" quality (bad shipper tendencies). Would you be looking for something set during the movie, or just after? Or a storyline which suggests that Lois ultimately chose Richard in the end?

And I'd love to request - if you let me know when your prompts are up, I'll buzz by. :)
