Fast Fictions Return
OK, it's been long enough... the Fast Fictions are back.

I've written over a hundred of these since 2nd August, and I've got nine remaining to do:
Rum Bumper's Savage Colt; colliery - chrisisiddall - done
The Prussians did it; carronade - cathuk - done
Jeremy: The Heroin Years; Memento - yoshithdragon - done
The Penny Dropped; advocate - malkavs_child - done
Fresh Daisies In November; wonder - elfie_elfie - done
Emergency Poetry; olympian - apiphile - done
Scuppered By The Koala; regimented - cathuk - done
Suicide Smile; dancing - yoshithdragon - done
Once Bitten. Twice Shy; ieatrogenic - malkavs_child - done
But I still need more...

A reminder of the challenge:
Reply with a title (maximum of four words) about which you'd like me to write a fast fiction of exactly 200 words, together with a single word you want me to include in the text of the tale.

(Completely daft suggestions will be ignored, so no suggestions of "antidisestablishmentarianism" along with a title of "sex lives of cornflakes".)

I'll try to do one a day, but no promises. (Edit, yeah, that obviously fell away, but I'll see what I can do)

OK, go.
The list of the first one hundred stories done so far is here.

As previously mentioned I'm now actively encouraging plugging of this on blogs, journals, mailing lists, etc.

Feel free to hype this to anyone and everyone. Non LJ members can either post the suggestions using LJ's "anonymous post" thing (but please ask them to remember to identify themselves so I can let them know it's been done!) or email me on budgie at hypotheticals dot co dot uk.

The URL for this entry, by the way, if you want to link to it, is: http://www.livejournal.com/users/budgie_uk/446151.html.

OK, now I know how you felt when, after several "feeler" posts, you finally provoked me to post on the WEF...

You're a sick man, making me write that.

I've been collecting song titles for this... (artists in parentheses if you're curious)

Deadlier Than The Male/supernacular (The Walker Brothers)
Turtles Have Short Legs/pilaster (Can)
Shotgun To A Rooster/stiletto (The Toledo Show)
23 Minutes in Brussels/ballistic (Luna)
Life's Full of Wonders/stramineus (Strawberry Switchblade)

Ummm... I reckon that ought to do for now!

Vindicate my love for the silybum marianum. (Cruel would have been giving you the Latin name for the title.)

Last time someone tried that, I still managed it :)

But could you do it without laughing? :-)
