Poetry meme

Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook and [personal profile] john_amend_all:

1. Pick five fandoms. List them in alphabetical order.
2. Visit this site to find your first RANDOM POEM OF POWER. Write down the 5th line (yes, even if it's an E.E. Cummings poem and you wind up with an apostrophe). Repeat five times and — you guessed it — list 'em in alphabetical order! (No cheating, mind! This is a challenge and it's always been about creativity.)
3. I think you can see where this is going. Write a very quick 50-word half-drabble for each fandom (try to do it all in one sitting - make your brain explode!), using the line from the poem as a prompt. You don't have to include it in the half-drabble - it's just inspiration.
4. Bravo! Have a cookie.


The next time this comes up I think I’m not going to do it the john_amend_all way, because it’s really hard. I ended up just giving up on one of them. Anyway, my fandoms were:

Doctor Who
John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme
Legends of Tomorrow
Phantom 2040
Zootropolis


The results were:

At last, it's time to never mention the Monks again (please?) and bring back a monster that actually works!

Ridiculous Doctor Who song based on a semipro-vid I never actually watched.

If that's not enough to warn you off, what if I said the tune was "Downtown" by Petulia Clark?

TDTO: Gotta Catch 'Em All (Drabble)

(Set at HG Wells High, the Whoniverse Schoolfic setting outside continuity)

As the Lower Sixth trooped back to class, Zoe caught up with Jamie “So where have you and Pat been all lunchbreak?”

“Sorry, I ken we were all gonae hae lunch together, but we got distracted by goin roond the playground findin monsters.”

“Oh, you finally got a smartphone, then? I must say there are less frivolous uses for it than playing Pokemon G…” She broke off as she saw Jamie’s perplexed expression. “You haven’t got a smartphone, have you?”

“Nae idea what ye’re talkin aboot.”

“So, you and Pat were actually finding monsters?”

“Is that no’ what I said?"
