Three-Sentence Meme  
This worked out pretty well mid-week, so let me embrace the random and see if I can get a little writing out:

Comment with your choice of fandom, pairing (if any), and brief prompt and I'll try writing a 3-sentence fic for it.

No guarantees, but if I know the fandom well enough and it's not a squicky pairing for me, I'll do my darndest (see my fic pages for my OTPs and fandoms I've written before, but the stuff under "Interests" or that you know I've seen is fair game, too).

Hat. Ring. Toss?

Prison Break, Michael/Lincoln, Payday

Hi! Glad to see you've resurfaced-- and are employed, no less. Have you graduated, then?

Here's your ficlet, sorry for the delay:

Ordinary Riches

Utah, with its stash of Westmoreland's money, was supposed to be their salvation; now Lincoln and Michael are digging through a tract home basement along with the rest of the breakout crew, each of whom piled in piecemeal to grab his share of a treasure that quite possibly doesn't exist.

God, what a mess, Michael thinks, glancing over at Lincoln for reassurance or maybe just a fresh idea. The smile he finds waiting for him brings home the truth: they're free, and if they come out of this penniless they still come out together, and that's the only future that really counts.

Yay! I was hoping you'd take it in a direction like that.

I did graduate indeed! I'm working out in Silicon Valley (awesome weather, yay) and loving it. I've been mostly lurking in Castle fic groups recently, but have spent most of my time writers'-blocked.

I'm glad you liked the ficlet, and weren't looking for something more hardcore porny. I've already written that as a fic, with "Payback" as the title, so I was looking for new territory. ;)

Silicon Valley's weather IS good, much better than Sacramento's. The sprawl and traffic, though... urgh. Still, when you're in the software biz it is THE place to work, so congrats! \o/

Good prose is good prose, porny or not :).

I'm finding that, despite my best efforts, most of my writing comes out PG nowadays. Not that I have been able to put down many words anyway... I write for a bit, and then can't write, and so I fall back to coding... my current side project is fictex.appspot.com, which happens to help satisfy both cravings ^_^.
