I want to write. Like, I have this desperate feeling that I REALLY WANT TO BE WRITING RIGHT NOW.
But I have no inspiration.
There are bits and pieces of a couple fics floating around in my head (all Avengers, as if this is any surprise to anybody right now), a little, but I can't really write those. I want to, but I don't think I can get the character voices right.
Also, I have a massive problem when I try to write: fic doesn't come to me in WORDS. What I get is flashes of images: a character dancing, two people sitting in a car talking, stuff like that. It rarely comes in words. And so even when I'm feeling inspired, it's hard to translate from the image on my head to words on a screen.
And it's just...very frustrating. Because I want to write, I really do. My fingers are all "I need to be typing right now, make me write something!" (No, I don't really know, I just have this need to type. I don't understand it either.)
On top of the two fics that I might eventually actually get around to writing, I've got another random bunny that was totally inspired by a song I recently listened to, and it's something that I would love to see, but I think it's going to involve PLOT, which is something I'm not great at. I'm decent at, like...little scenes and stuff, but not really good at things that might have plot involving more than a few scenes at most. (I've got another fic that I've actually started writing, that's Warehouse 13/Eureka, that's going to be long and plotty and full of FEELINGS and I have no idea if or how it's ever going to get done. Because PLOT. And lots of serious emotions. Oh, and a baby. WHY do I do these things to myself?)
Um. And I still want ALL THE AVENGERS AUs too. And people are making pretty graphics but nobody seems to actually be writing them? Which makes me desperately wish I could do actual art, because I'd totally have done some AU art for the RBB.
Because seriously, AUs I want include:
-fantasy (DRAGON!COULSON. 'nuff said.)
-the 1940s/film noir/private eye one (I have a THING about fedoras and pinstripes, and also these pictures happened
-rock band (unf, pretty people with guitars)
-Whatever era it's called that Downton Abbey is set in (period dramas are awesome, okay?)
-a jazz age one would be pretty awesome too. (Tony Stark in a speakeasy. C'mon.)
-STEAMPUNK oh my god. I want everything to be steampunk all the time.
-zombie apocalypse (because every fandom needs their own zombie apocalypse AU)
-cop drama (I love me some cop drama)
-always more high school/college AUs, because those are always ALWAYS a good thing
-also always more coffee shop/bakery AUs
-ETA: And also a fusion of Avengers and Warehouse 13, except set at Warehouse 12, where the Avengers are agents and work with HG Wells, because that would be kind of cool. Also, Tony Stark in the Warehouse.
These are things I cannot write. (Please let me know if anybody has written any of these already? Because if they have, I desperately wish to read them. CRAVING good fic, particularly longfic, right now. It helps, a bit, with the part where I want to write.)
