Stole this meme from [personal profile] nagia. Post one sentence from your current Works-in-Progress.

Fanfic
He'd only seen her natural hair color once: after two weeks at sleep-away camp, she came back with stripes her brown hair peaking through the faded blue, kind of like she was molting or something. When he said she looked like a mixed-up skunk, she chased him around the Pink Palace. (Coraline - "Birds & Bees")

It had been hot work, pulling weeds, and boring, too, even when she pretended she was Godzilla and the plants were unfortunate bystanders meeting their untimely demise. (Coraline - "Wrapped up in Clover")

"We don't have to watch any movies," I said hurriedly. "We can go to bed, like, right now so we can wake up at the buttcrack of dawn and get you to your interview. Or maybe I'll stay up all night reading your notes out loud to you so you can learn them by osmosis or something. I don't know. But I'm staying and I need a toothbrush." (Digimon - "Fine Art")

Original
As soon as she figured out who she was, she'd chase the little harlot right out of town. (TTBtM)

When Lest tugged at buttons that ran along her back like a second spine, she had to close her eyes and lock her jaw so that confessions and vomit didn't spill out. ("Masca")

*nodnod* Same and same, though I actually haven't done Coraline fic. (For the same reason I've never done Spirited Away fic: it seems very, very difficult to age up the characters, and I'm not really good at writing kids.)

Oh, uh, btw! When you are done with them, you should totally post them at [community profile] princeofstories!

I'm flattered, really, but I don't really like writing about children younger than 15, and if I aged either Chihiro or Coraline up to compensate, they'd be very difficult to recognize. If I was lucky, I might be able to keep the core personalities. Maybe.

(Though every now and then, I find myself wanting to write a Teenaged-Chihiro-Encounters-Haku-IRL fic. My problem is I can't see her as a teenager. Okay, I can, but... That's just not a place I'd like to visit without watching the movie several times in one day, in both languages, and taking copious notes. And the instant I do that, I'll have to leave fandom, because that is just too obsessive.)
