number one: minimalist


Stolen from mardia. In case she wants to repay me for the somewhat graphic answer I left in her journal.

Out of utter curiosity, if I was chained up in your attic (I prefer attics, basements are damp and cold, attics theoretically at least have windows), and I had to write you one story, what would you request? (demand?) Or alternatively, what's something you always hoped I'd write but know is never going to happen?

Oh muse, why must you be so fickle? I sign up for a zillion ficathons because deadlines were the only way to keep you active, then you do two of them and come up with a all kinds of interesting story ideas on your own. LEAVE THE COMMENT FESTS ALONE. WRITE TOSH STORY. Thank you, that is all.
Any one of the many epic gen fics you have tantalized us with, particularly: Number One and wilderness survival after having her fighter-craft shot down.
Hm. I do not remember ever having mentioned that plot bunny, though I'm sure I did. I do miss writing her though; I was kind of regretting not appropriating a Number One-related request for her in the New Year's fest. I feel like the wilderness survival is within my power with a little research. And it would need some kind of central climatic event, like a place she had to reach maybe? An injury to overcome? Possibly accompanied by her ever-growing fear that a search party is not coming for her because she is on a classified mission/behind enemy lines/disobeyed orders and should not be where she is?
Gimme a few minutes and I think I can dig up the original brainstormey threads?

Found! There is something vaguely ourobouros-like going on here.

(Crash landing probably implies some kind of injury?)

Thanks for that! I had completely forgotten I had made that post, and it looks like a very pleasing source of inspiration. I do have to admit I've become a bit less enamored with the blockade running idea since I realized it would violate the Prime Directive though. Plus, it would eliminate the possibility of Pike angsting over her and doing possibly self-destructive things in order to rescue her. I wonder if I could write that without it being, like, 10K long and me getting frustrated and abandoning it in the middle.
If I'm being totally honest, I'd probably ask for a long Winona fic either pairing her up with Uhura or Pike. And yes, I'd ask for porn as well.
Interesting! (Though, I suspect, not anything I could ever write. I cannot come up with any plausible scenario in which Uhura and Winona would have sex, and I am inherently incapable of writing Pike with anyone but Number One. And I take a long, long time to write porn.)
I would request that you write foodie fic. I don't really care who's involved; I just would request that you write me more about food. :)
Haha, I would request the same. Earth-ian food in the 23rd century, alien food in the 23rd century, I don't care, it's all good. Food! :D
Fourthed. But then we'd be cooking together (so you'd totally get a chance to escape).
