I signed up for [ profile] smallfandombang last month, did I mention? I'm not sure I did.

I've never done a big bang before---I can remember being seriously confused when I came back to LJ after many years of absence and saw all these stories tagged with bigbang.  I thought for a couple of days that people were really, really into The Big Bang Theory!

As big bangs go, this one is nice and small.  To go along with the name, I suspect.  It's 10k, which would make the finished story the longest thing I've written since my attempt at NaNo in '03.  (I think I managed about 20k before giving up.)

Today I junked my original idea and embarked on a new and slightly crack-tastic one.  I'm blending Hawaii Five-0 with various and diverse fairy tales.  There are talking mice (who would rather learn police procedure from 80s cop movies than a manual), poisoned pineapples, an unlikely Sleeping Beauty, troll bridges and more!  I've managed 3k today, which has absolutely stunned me.  I can't remember the last time that words poured out like this... it's brilliant!

(This is also my first foray into H50 fandom.  I am slightly nuts, I think.)

Sounds like fun!! :) I will read it! I applaud you for diving into H50! And, as always, I think I am abusing the exclamation point, but... DAMMIT! I'm excited for you! :)

Thanks, Ev!

I've read loads of H50 fic since I really got into it about half-way through the first season. Eagerly awaiting s2 beginning over here, but the boxset of s1 arrived yesterday so I can keep myself entertained for a while!

I am hoping that this will turn into a modern fairy tale that I can be proud of :)

(You are slightly nuts. ;)) I'm so excited that you managed 3400 words!!!! Years of no words at all, and now all of this!

I once knocked on the door of 10K in a first draft of a story, but then I edited it down to about 9K. Good luck!!
