Suggestion - the summary

I'm a bit bored, trying to avoid housework, and studiously ignoring a horrendously rabid bunny because the fic concerned would be extremely difficult and time-consuming.

So, to occupy a few moments, I decided to auto-summarise one of my more porny LoM fics in 100 words or less. The resulting summary made me giggle so much I thought I'd post it here.

Gene’s tone was exasperated. Sam swallowed dryly.

There was a roughness in Gene’s voice that Sam had never encountered before. Sam couldn’t help a grin. Gene, predictably, rose to the baiting.

Releasing Sam’s arm, Gene set to work in earnest, making light work of buckle and zip, tugging Sam’s jeans down past his knees. Sam bit his lip, fighting for control.

“Fuck, Gene,” he gasped.

“Weren’t you ever a Boy Scout, Sam?”

Sam grinned broadly.

Gene sounded thoughtful. “God, Gene." Gene’s softening cock slipped out of Sam so fast that there was an audible pop.

Yep, that about covers it. Think I like that better than the original. I might have to do a few more of these. :D

I particularly like the jump from "fuck Gene" to boyscout! :D

I just recced this story over at the com a couple of days ago.

Hee! That little leap of logic was my favourite bit too! XD

I just recced this story over at the com a couple of days ago.

I saw the entry go on while I was browsing my flist, and noticed I was on it, but then it disappeared (I think you were editing)and I never saw it again. I'll go and track it down in a minute. Might as well say 'thank you' here, though.

THANK YOU! *hugs* It's so lovely to be recced!

You're a very good writer anyway, but I'm was trying to encourage a little more reccing based on the "enjoyment factor" rather than just on the critical one. I was hoping to encourage a little more participation from some of the other newbs/lurkers in a non-intimidating way.

I had to edit that bastard posting several times -- lines of coding for links that did not want to upload properly.

Your summary made me race right over and reread this and then explode all over again.

Thank you for reminding me that I hadn't indulged in lift!porn for awhile.

Thank you! :D (I wasn't really self-pimping, honest guv! I just get a bad case of button-pressing when I'm bored!)

Ah lift!porn ♥

How do you auto-summarise? Is it every tenth line or something? I've never seen it before and it looks like fun :D

Well, bear in mind my Word package is from Windows 98, but I assume the pronciple is the same - In tools, there's an auto-summarise option, which gives you a range of choices about how long you want your summary to be as a % of the original. I picked 100 words or less, I got a little bar and clicked a reddish icon on the left of the bar to isolate the highlighted sentences. Presto!

(Strangely, I've done this in the past with a number of Pros fics, and every time it pretty much goes "Bodie. Bodie Bodie Bodie. Bodie! Bodie ran. Bodie." - I reckon Microsoft fancy Bodie!)

I reckon Microsoft fancy Bodie!

Doesn't everyone????

And I love you for showing me how to auto-summarise ♥ I used it just now and it gave a hilarious summary for my Phyllis/Litton fic. :D

*Off to play with Bodie & Doyle Word*

Oooh - a great summarized fic, so much in so few words, and Gene's reaction was just wonderful, as was Sammy biting down during the experience.
