A Picture is Worth 1000 Words: A Multifandom Comment Fic Meme

Have you seen a hot photo at Sex is Not the Enemy and you wish there were a fic to go with it? Is there a still from your favorite series that needs a story to accompany it? Do you have a vast stockpile of pictures of outer space that would make amazing back drops for a sci-fi story? Well, this is your place! You're invited to post an interesting picture prompt in the comments and to write stories for pictures that others have left.

The rules are simple:

1. For leaving prompts: Please post only one picture per comment. The picture is the only prompt you are leaving; please do not include fandoms, characters, plot ideas, etc. If your picture is potentially triggering or not safe for work, please post a link to it and include an appropriate warning/rating in the subject line.

2. For writing fills: Please include a title, fandom, and any relevant warnings/ratings in the subject line; also include characters or pairings if they fit. Your fill may be any length, and if it is too long for one comment, feel free to use multiple comment boxes or link to a posting on your journal.

3. You may leave up to five prompts, even if you do not intend to write any fills. You may leave one additional prompt for each fill you write.

4. Multiple fills for one prompt are welcome and encouraged!

5. Any fandom, character, pairing, or genre is welcome.

Have fun and pimp this around! I will continue updating the list of fills as new stories are posted.

Then go to the comment box, right click again, and click paste. The image's URL ought to appear in the comment box. Then type img src= in front of it, and enclose the whole thing in < >. Your final product will look like the example below, but with < > instead of [ ].

If your picture is on your hard drive, you will need to upload it to the internet somewhere like photobucket or your LJ, then follow the instructions listed above.
Adventurous, Star Trek XI, Winona Kirk, PG-ish?
Contrary to popular opinion, Winona Kirk nee Emerson is not a daredevil or an adrenaline junkie.

She's come to the county fair because Sam and Jimmy begged her -- though they'd waited until she'd been home a night and a day, and she wonders, reluctantly, warily, how Frank managed that change of behavior -- and because it's been almost a year since she was last on Earth, her own life one long orbit to and from and always back to Sol.

Always.

Frank stayed back at the farmhouse; Sam's always got one hand on Jimmy no matter how sticky they are with corn dogs or cotton candy or potatoes cut lengthwise in quarter-inch slabs, battered and deep-fried and, she has to admit even as she's saying Mom-things about their lack of nutrition, absolutely delicious. Thick slices of earth, sweet on their own, sweeter with the ranch dressing they're slathered in. She joins her sons in licking her fingers clean.

Jimmy's nose is red by the time dusk falls, the skin on Winona's neck and shoulders also tight with too much sun. They're on their way back to the parking lot when both boys are captured by a wheel rising in the night -- a blur of white spinning to rival the moon.

She knows what the question will be even before they've turned to her, and glances for the ticket booth. She buys them enough for the one ride, and herself a cherry-flavored slush. Jimmy's just tall enough to ride, and he looks back at her soberly before following his brother into the queue.

Winona leans on the flimsy fence near the exit and waits for her boys to have their adventure, cherry flavor tart on her tongue and calculations for centripetal force running through her mind.

Confession: this is one of my favorite photographs I have ever taken, and I'm so excited to have received a story for it! Of course, I love your Winona, and I loved the ways you have played with some common fannish portrayals of her and Frank. The sensory details are lovely too -- I really like how we can see and taste and touch the world around her.

Thank you!

I might have spent more time than is strictly healthy at the Los Angeles County Fair, and while I know most Fairs aren't on its scale, well...
Re: Adventurous, Star Trek XI, Winona Kirk, PG-ish?
Thank you! (Sorry to take so long; I went on vacation. ;))
