For once, though, my day wasn't ruined by someone lying to me!

Okay! So...I should do a Thing for this, because it's a rainbowfic event (if you're not a member there, feel free to vote anyway!)

(For reference, if you care, the archive of the story this poll draws from is here. It hasn't been updated in a while, sorry...I should fix that.)

This poll will be open until midnight EST on Friday, April 15.

Summary: Simon and Sanchez meet, sometime around when Sanchez becomes Guardian. This will likely be primarily an expository scene, but fun things could happen!

Because why not?

Ask me for any character I write or have written and I will tell you, if they existed in the Harry Potter universe:

1. Sorting Hat: what house would they be sorted into?
2. Expecto Patronum: what form would their patronus take?
3. Riddikulus: what form would their boggart (read: their deepest fear/the thing they find scariest) take?
4. Amortentia: the three smells they find most attractive/appealing.
5. The Mirror of Erised:

Borrowed from multiple people

Send me a word. If it’s in my wip document, I’ll answer with the sentence that it appears in.

May be from a fanfic or an origfic project. We'll see!

List the first lines of your last twenty stories. See if you find any patterns.

So...fffffff. Man, I don't know. Last time I did something like this, it was a pretty even mix of stuff like either #19 or #11. Short, declarative statements or long ones full of nested clauses that stretch the definition of 'sentence' to the breaking point. I still do a fair amount of that last bit, but I think I've gotten a broader range of sentence styles? I also seem to like doing...it's not exactly if/then structure, but like...set-up clause/concluding and/or contrasting clause? See 1, 3, 4, 9, 12, 13...yeah. Not a lot of dialogue--only three out of twenty, and two of those three are weird settings (one being a super-meta story and the other being...mm...I guess the best way to explain it is the viewpoint character is on the edge of a coma?) Anyway. I seem to like long sentences more than short ones...but at least two of these come from pieces that are all but prose poems...so IDK.

Anyone else notice any patterns? I'm curious...

I was doing these for a while a few years ago, but daily...I think now that I'm not in school anymore, weekly makes more sense. They'll probably be mostly writing goals, unless big RL stuff comes up.
