Mar. 28th, 2005 @ 05:03 pm A question for y'all...
Current Mood: curiouscurious
Would anyone be interested in a (monthly? weekly?) Huck Finn drabble challenge? Or does anyone know if such a community already exists? I'm simply curious, and since there's a distinct lack of decent Huck Finn fanfic around I thought I'd inquire.

If anyone is interested I could perhaps host a drabble challenge here...

Mar. 4th, 2005 @ 02:10 pm howdy,
i guess it was only a matter of time before i ran accross this community. i wanted to ask if any of y'all had made it to the natchez under the hill bar in natchez miss.? the movie was filmed both in the bar and on the street outside. even though the film crew has moved on the bartender's still prone to getting himself all dolled up in a red and white striped shirt and arm garters (i think that's what they're called) and his wife is often in attendence as an old fashioned...er... saloon girl.

i had the good fortune to have my first time arriving at under the hill be under the power of the chattanooga star, a tiny little side wheeler, and at under the hill river folk are still the closest thing to royalty so the drinks and the songs came whether or not you asked for them.

regardless of how you arrive i'm sure you'd have a grand time. they have a bed and breakfast upstairs, and it has a suitably dubious history. and i hear the hot buttered rum is amazing but i never got to try any.

hope y'all are well.

Sheesh, we really need some new members around here. It's so sad and quiet... :'( Unfortunately I don't have much to offer, myself, at the moment - just a couple of icons, which you can find here at my icon journal, _shinken.

Hmmm. Maybe if I watch the movie again I could at least post some plot bunnies...

Current Mood: amusedamused
...of my ficlet. Finally! Apologies for the delay - RL got quite unexpectedly hectic and kept getting in the way of the really important stuff! :P

To recap:

Title: Still nothing - suggestions? Anyone?
Rating: PG, for some comeuppance involving a paint bucket, brush, and a couple of brooms ;)
Summary: Pre-movie. While trying to do a good deed, Huck gets himself into trouble and finds help from more than one rather unexpected source.
Warnings: Almost completely unproofread and unbeta'd. Beware.

Part the Second!Collapse )

I never did get a chance to watch Huck Finn the other day... I'll have to do that! Hope the ficlet's ending did not disappoint - it was a completely aimless, spur-of-the-moment idea but someday I promise I'll write a properly lengthy, planned-out Huck Finn fic. ;)

Yes, yes, I know it's been days since I promised obeliamedusa a Huck Finn ficlet, but unforeseen events since then kept me from finishing it as fast as I would've liked.

However, maybe I can make up for my delay by making it longer. Yup, it's now a two-part ficlet. I present part one for now, but I'm starting on part two right away so hopefully - making no promises, given how my last few days have been - it'll be up shortly.

All righty, on with Part One!

Title: Nothing yet, alas
Rating: PG, for some comeuppance involving a paint bucket, brush, and a couple brooms ;)
Summary: Pre-movie. While trying to do a good deed, Huck gets himself into trouble and finds help from more than one rather unexpected source.
Warnings: Almost completely unedited and unbeta'd. Beware.

Part the First!Collapse )

I haven't watched the movie in ages - *hangs head* - so hopefully the speech wasn't too dreadful. :-\

Current Music: the Smurf song, going through my head over and over... >_
Oooh, my first post in a community! :P I am currently sitting in lab wanting to go home, but it's only 4:30. I'll sit here, but I won't work. I have my principles. ;) Anyway, to pass the time, I am going to attempt to write a Huck Finn ficlet, right here in this post. Hope you like it, other four community members! :D Don't mind my lousy attempts at dialects and probable forgetting of plot points; I haven't watched the movie in ages, I'm going by my brainless memory here (and I may be unknowingly mixing book and movie universes here, sorry)! Oh, and this is dedicated to elevenses, because she needs some distraction. :)

TITLE: too lazy to think of one...
RATING: PG for mentions of child abuse. And the first word is a swear. ;)
SUMMARY: Right after Jim and Huck leave Jackson's Island, Jim isn't sure Huck is serious about helping him.

Yes, I know I promised these ages ago, but... well, if you've read my LJ recently, you'll know that I've had a lot going on. But here they are at last! Just a few, mind you, to start out with... I need to watch the movie again. Feel free to join in with your own plot bunnies, too!

1. The classic HuckHealers story: Huck gets sick somewhere along the river and Jim has to care for him. While ill, Huck's normally tough exterior gives way to show his very vulnerable side - he is just a 12-year-old boy, after all.

2. Gap-filler - what happened between Huck's blacking out (after being shot) and waking up with Mary Jane at his bedside?

3. AU - what if Pap wasn't really dead on that ship, and caught Huck and Jim?


That's all for now, I'm afraid. I've got tons of projects I'm already working on so I can't really start anything else, so I guess I'll just dump any plot bunnies that hop into my head right here. ;)
