Hmm. A meme I've grabbed from rachelmanija:

Post one sentence from your current Work/s In Progess.

In some cases I'm cheating and posting more than just one sentence. I don't think you'll mind.




Black Ribbon, chapter 4: “What is that thing?” said Rose Hannah, vaguely horrified.

Black Ribbon, chapter 5: "“I don’t care if I have to tie you to a chair, Miss Munro--you’re not going, and I could never look your father in the face again if you did."

Black Ribbon, volume 2 ("Belle Époque"): "Who in the world is that, I wonder?" "C'est Bijou."

Black Ribbon, volume 3 ("The Fatalist"): “Come on, then, it probably isn’t even real holy water anyway. Up we go.”




From a fantasy project I'm not ready to tell the name of yet:

“After all,” Elspeth continued, “we won't not begin with the beginning. We won't begin with the first time, only once upon a time--”

“It would be better to begin,” interrupted the boy king.




Untitled short story: The ghost had begun to wonder if he was ever going to get through to her.




Movies in Fifteen Minutes

I'm not giving away anything I'm really proud of, but since I promised to post an excerpt if Kerry won and he didn't, I figure I'll at least post a few snippets:


The Matrix in Fifteen Minutes:

Neo takes the hipster’s money and digs out a book called Obscure Allusions to Modern Philosophy. The tenth chapter, “Baudrillard: We’ve Read Him and You Haven’t,” has been cut out to make a hiding place for his illegal minidisc whatever things. He pulls out one marked MACGUFFIN.EXE and gives it to the guy at the door.




Titanic in Fifteen Minutes:

OLD ROSE: Screw your grandfather, Lizzie! I didn’t want to see him again anyway!




Attack of the Clones in Fifteen Minutes:

ANAKIN: Your kiss, which you shouldn’t have given me, even though it was technically my kiss since I made the first move, but it’s still your kiss, is a wound on my heart that leaves a scar on my spleen and a bruise on my—

PADMÉ: I’m wearing my anti-bullshit headband tonight, so don’t even try.




Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone in Fifteen Minutes:

MCGONAGALL: Draco M—

THE SORTING HAT: SLYTHERIN!

MCGONAGALL: Malf—

THE SORTING HAT: SLYTHERIN!

MCGONAGALL: Could you let me say the kid’s name?

THE SORTING HAT: SLYTHERIN!

DRACO: WOOT!




Lord of the Rings in Fifteen Minutes

(Fellowship of the Ring)

FRODO: Gandalf, I’m so happy to see you! Now that you’re here, the movie can start without any more exposition!

GANDALF: …

FRODO: …

GANDALF AND FRODO: BWAHAHAHAHAHA!


(Two Towers)

[Enter Shadowfax.]

LEGOLAS: I’ve wanted a horse like that ever since I was a little girl.


(Return of the King)

ARAGORN: So. Sucks to be Frodo right now.

GANDALF: Yeah, pretty much.

ARAGORN: You think he’s gonna make it?

GANDALF: Well, it ain’t called Return of the Hobbit, so…

ARAGORN: Yikes.




Wish me luck getting them all finished up...
