WiP Meme

Yay! Another bandwagon! *dances* (Nicked from pretty much everyone)

The meme:

Post a single sentence from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations. No more than one sentence!

I didn't think I had all that many WiPs, but whaddya know, there's loads! More than this, actually. It says no context, so I'll limit myself to saying this is a mixture of Pros, LoM, Doctor Who and original fic. Enjoy! :D


It’s an aspect of himself that he’s deliberately repressed, to the point where most who know him would tend to have him down as over-cautious, but actually he gets off on those life-threatening moments of uncertainty that form an intrinsic part of police work.

Doyle smiled, and if his teeth were slightly gritted, his grin a bit too forced, Bodie was too drunk to notice or care.

But it was late, he was tired, and the room was just spooky enough that pulling the duvet over his head and ignoring the shadows was definitely not going to work.

He’d walked across the rest room to settle himself next to Doyle on the battered old leather sofa, draped an arm over Doyle’s shoulders with an insouciance that anyone coming in unexpectedly would easily mistake for casual camaraderie, and brought the big guns to bear.

The Old Man was standing with his back to the door, staring out of the window, and there was something instinctively chilling about the slump of his shoulders, an impression reinforced by the lifeless, shuttered expression Cowley presented to Doyle as he turned to face him.

Deserted gloomy backstreet, swirling mist pierced by needles of white from determined streetlamps, fine drizzle clinging to clothes, dripping off skin.

Looking down into the well-kept back garden, he could see his mother now, sun-hat carelessly askew, kneeling beside the riot of roses which had been Dad’s pride and joy.

Even in the one simple word, there is a malevolent self-satisfaction, a repressed glee, that is profoundly unsettling.

Ooh a very tantalizing list.

I have to admit to laughing like a hyena at and brought the big guns to bear. *g*

That's because you have a filthy mind! *tuts, shakes head*

This is my favourite and the one that I want to finish most. It's been on the hard drive since 2007! Running at 3000 words, and can I figure out how it ends? *headdesk*

Erm... well, plotting tends to be my thing -- I read far too many mysteries as a kid and I always guess the ending of a film 10 minutes in -- so if you wanted to send me a rough outline I might have an "ending" idea or three for you. Just offering. *g*

*hugs you to squish point* What a fantastic offer! :DD I want to have another crack at figuring it out for myself first - I've got a sort of idea, but I'm not sure if it works - and then when if that fails I'll be beating down your door begging for inspiration!

Thank you, seriously. You are a gem.

I totally understand wanting to work it out for yourself -- sometimes a little head!wall masochism is just the thing *g* -- but I wanted to offer 'cos I'm greedy for BK fic as I know it's sometimes easier to spot the ending/plot twist for someone else's story than for your own. You should see the conversations Mikey and I have had... or not. *g*

Ooh, this many WiPs? Can't wait to see some of this manifest in fully-fledged fic form (alliteration FTW!), especially if it's as atmospheric and moody as a lot of this looks :D

Great meme, excuse me while I wander off and take it with me... *yoink*

Loving the 'literation! (I know, sorry).

You're right, it is all a bit dark, isn't it? That's why they're unfinished, possibly - I get sucked into the wonderful world of PWP, and never get the proper stuff done!

Oooh yes, you should totally do this meme. *settles in to wait for Sev's WiPs*

Agree with Dracey on that fourth one... *smiles, ducks head, makes puppy-dog eyes at you to finish it*

If only it were that easy! I'm determined that I will finish this one. (I should warn you, it's not as PWP-ish as it may appear at first glance - there's plot and all sorts!)

Oh dear. Cowley looks as though he has bad news to impart :(

All very intriguing :)

Very vivid. I'd like to see this one.
