Bond does his bit for International Women's Day & a Meme  

Dame Judi Dench, Daniel Craig, a very important message. If you get the giggles over Daniel in drag then watch it again to get the message. :)

The Meme: snagged from jinxed_wood

To celebrate International Women's Day, name a woman in one of my fandoms and I will attempt a drabble about her.

If you give me a keyword or lyric, I will use it if it sparks something for me.

I think you all know my fandoms by now :)

Hee! Amanda.

Hope you like it:

Amanda wasn’t foolish and you don’t clock up a millennium if you’re naïve; she knew she’d changed more in the last two decades than in her entire life. Most who knew her put it down to the men in her life. That wasn’t entirely wrong.

The more cynical, like Methos, said she lacked sincerity; that she only wanted to please Duncan and Nick. He might be right.

But the world had changed for Amanda, not because she loves Duncan and Nick, although she does. It changed when Rebecca’s light left it. She lives and tries to live well for Rebecca.

Sharron. Are you a lucky little lady in the city of light?
Or just another lost angel?

Oo, you are predictable. *g* Not sure this is quite what you were prompting, but this is what I wrote:

Unless she was on assignment, Sharron didn’t often pick up men. The strange, sexless ménage a trois she had with Craig and Richard was all the company she needed most of the time.

But tonight they were on the other side of the world and she felt their absence like a phantom limb.

She danced, her sequinned dress sparkling in the lights as she moved between the men who made advances. Flitting from one to the next like a butterfly between flowers. She might take one back to her room later, but for now it was enough just to dance.

I know! *laughs* But I love them some much!

And yes! It's perfect! I was aiming exactly to something like that: Sharron away from her permanent companions, with the night and its promises all for herself :D

Thank you!!!

You're very welcome, I'm so glad you liked :)

Good vid - and I think it hits strongly not just because of the drag and our familiarity with the characters etc, but the simple fact that Craig says nothing at all throughout. It's a powerful reversal in many ways.

And on a less serious note - any chance of a...hmm...let's think, Queenie ('Blackadder''s one) bit of drabblyness? ;D

You do love to challenge me, don't you? *g* This is what the brain came up with:

Sometimes she wished she’d been a boy. When Daddy looked at her like she was something he’d stepped in. When the next idiot with designs on the throne wooed her. When Walter or Francis sailed off on their adventures and she was stuck at home with boring old Melchett and Nursie.

But then she’d remember what fun it was to tease Edmund, or the joy of bedding Flashheart and then executing him just because she could, or the simple unmitigated pleasure of generally being Queenie.

Sometimes she wished she’d been a boy; until she remembered being a girl is fantastic.

You rose to the challange perfectly. I love it! :D

Oh *good* video - v powerful.

As for characters I see someone else has picked Amanda so that means I can't. *pout*

I think I'd like to see something with Zoe from Firefly in it. A phrase? dancing with a gun in my hand (yes I am listening to Ultravox right now).

I was thinking of asking for Susan, but I know she's being elusive so decided I best not.
But, I don't want to be a pie,: amandaidontlikegravy on March 9th, 2011 07:40 pm (UTC)
Elusive? No, the Scarlet Pimpernel was elusive; Susan is being... stubborn. ;-)

Looking forward to writing for Zoe, it's been too gorram long. Leave it with me. :)

Still working on yours, but the Amanda one is in the comments above if you want to read that in the meantime :)

Here you go duck, hope you like and that I interpreted the prompt ok:

Zoe knew that she had trouble relaxing. The Sarge had joked she was never off duty and years later Wash kept on reminding her that she wasn’t at war anymore. But for long as she could recall Zoe had been at war; didn’t know no other way to be. Since she was knee-high she’d had to fight and fight hard for everything she had.

Had to be stronger and faster than the boys and smarter than the white and Asian girls. Even out Rimwards the colour of your skin mattered.

So, yeah, sometimes she had trouble letting her guard down.

Yup, that's our Zoe. Lovely.

I don't appear to have a Firefly icon apart from this one...
But, I don't want to be a pie,: skyidontlikegravy on March 14th, 2011 09:11 pm (UTC)
Mm, but why add to perfection? *g* Did you see my other Firefly related post?

Glad you liked it and that it was Zoe :)
