Just to see what you guys think. . .

I know it's been a "powerful long time," as Huck would say, since anyone posted here (the HuckHealers community), but I'm going to jump in. . . . :D

A plot bunny dropped into the water by Elevenses on my birthday about 4.5 years back is nibbling at my toes (August 5, 2004: "1. The classic HuckHealers story: Huck gets sick somewhere along the river and Jim has to care for him. While ill, Huck's normally tough exterior gives way to show his very vulnerable side - he is just a 12-year-old boy, after all."). I'm thinking of trying to work on this one - my first ever HuckHealers fic - and would like some input.

The illnesses I'm considering are measles, typhoid fever, and influenza. I reserve the right to repeat the fic with whatever I don't use first time, because it will totally change things around. But still, the first time is always "special," and I'd like it to be really perfect. I'm leaning toward either measles or typhoid, probably measles, and I wondered whether anyone here had any thoughts they wanted to offer. I have already started my notes and am hoping to have a first chapter up fairly soon. I'd like to get going well enough to post at a reasonably steady pace, but we'll have to see.

Thoughts? Bueller? Bueller? :) Anybody home out there?

Gals (and any guys out there). . .

I have hit the motherlode.

Seriously.

I was hunting for the writing notebook with my esophageal stricture outline and notes this morning, and found it. . .only to discover a motherlode of plot bunnies that I'd either made up or been given over the years.

Mostly these are single-word or single-phrase prompts, not fully-grown bunnies.

But for me, often that's all it TAKES for little ficlets, at least.

A few I *had* written on; most I've not. But I've got the sheaf of pages in hand, and I think I could even find the computer file with all this stuff stored up in it again to boot, though the printout's really all I need. . . .

Wow. Just. . .wow.

Shame on me begging for bunnies, when I'm sitting on a hutchful.

(But no shame in raiding Shirebunnies, because those full-grown ones are good for bigger ficlets than these are, and they prompt different stuff, and they're fun!!!! ;D )

So you can rest assured that, while I'll always listen, I *will* hush up begging like a puppy whining for table scraps now. . . .

*hangs head*

For Tues, provided I don't cave and post it sooner, I'll be putting up a little fic I wrote based on Shirebunny R69. . .

R69. In Minas Tirith, Frodo catches a small cold or chill. After looking after Mr. Frodo for so long on his own, Sam finds himself resentful -- and upset -- when Aragorn wants to treat his master and doesn't seem to trust him to do it himself. It's up to Aragorn (or Frodo) to figure this out -- and see to it that Sam knows that he's still needed.

Hope you'll all enjoy!!!! Consider this the sneak preview. ;)

*grins*

-Febobe :)

PS - Yes, it IS finished and ready to post. :)

Okee, gang.

I won't be up that much longer tonight, but I will be up a while longer, and I'm just not in the frame of mind to work on my challenge fic. . .and I'm far enough in that I can afford that luxury, yes.

So I'm asking for small bunnies.

If you want examples, look at what Mews1945 and FrodoBaggins252 have given me at my request over the past couple of days. Those are great examples of bunnies bite-sized enough to be manageable in ficlet form.

I can't guarantee anything will come of a given bunny, or what length it will be if it comes, b/c I don't know what the Muse will do, and when it comes to fanfic I can't quite taskmistress her the way I can with my original fiction. But I would love to hear your thoughts. . .cuddle the tiny bunnies. . .try and coax them to nibble my toes. . . .

*washes her feet in carrot juice*

Help, please?

ETA: Have now raided the Shirebunnies website as well. I think I might survive. ;) Plus it reminded me to send in some of my links which I've not sent in. . . .
