How do you lure a muse back?

Okay, I know I've been gone forever. And my muse has fled me, for the most part. I saw these on ariestess LJ, and they looked inviting. So, I'm willing to try a meme, see if I can kick start my muse. Just, if anybody does respond, please act as if I need training wheels again, 'kay?

Stolen straight off ariestess lj:
gacked from merfilly ages ago...

If you had me tied up in front of a word processor, what would you demand that I write for you?

Who knows, you might spark a bunny.

gacked from cleo & merfilly

Give me one of my own stories, and a time at some point after the end of the story or before the story started, and I'll write you at least 100 words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story begins or ten years in the future.

You'll find the majority of my T/7 on P&P, and all of my Zabby stuff here.

Drabbles for drabble meme (ST:Voy -T/7)

I had three people ask for T/7, so here are three responses. I haven't written T/7 in about a year, so I'm rusty. Forgive me. I also tried really hard to make them true drabbles which I'm not great at, but keep trying to do anyway. Again, forgive me. And none of these are beta read. Woops. :P

So these are for ralst, newbie_2u, and quew. You can choose which one you like and say it was yours. ;)

Drabble Meme

The first FIVE people to comment in this post get to request a drabble length fic (i.e., about 100 words) of any pairing/character of their choosing from me. In return, they have to post this meme in their journal. (please, I'm really a T/7 or Zabby girl... I've never done anything else, so if you ask for seomthing else, be gentle with me! I'm just trying to actually follow the memes rules for once.)

Question - safety wear

I somehow doubt it, but is there anybody on my little network of readers who can point me in the direction of a comfortable pair of safety glasses?

I am so tired of trying to find these IRL... I guess I'm going to have to order online, but jeesh, how are you to know if they are going to be comfy?

But I am tired of the pair I have... cheap pieces of junk that they give us at work. Bah.

It's also time to invest in another pair of steel toed shoes... I'm trying to get another couple of months out of this pair... if I can make it to June it'll be a year, which isn't too bad for $90 Timberlands.

This job makes you buy the oddest stuff.

Rescuing good fics...

So, ever since I heard Geocities was going to be given the boot, I've been trying to remember to set aside some time to go through all my favorites and look for Geocities links in the hopes I could rescue some fics I used to read.

I really hate to see the old links go... and I especially hate trying to figure out how to rescue the links & fics. I really hate downloading somebody's fic without permission, but damn I hate for it to be lost to me too. (Selfish, I know.)

Yet, I am finding this to be a daunting task. Sites like The Rogue Sanctuary have so many link and several of those are geocities links too. I know the wayback machine will help even if I can't get this done quickly... which I won't, b/c when I'm daunted like this, i tend to avoid doing things. (Hmmm... is this why I'm writing a post about it?)

But, I do wish I knew if other people were doing the same things... trying to rescue fics that is.

Anyway.. /babble

A/N This was a plot bunny I kept trying to ignore, but every time I heard the song, it just became more and more complete in my head until I knew I had to go ahead and write it, or I'd be insane. It didn't help that the song was on at least two of my shuffle line-ups. Feed appreciated as always. Angst warning.
