Meme thinks that bees don't lie!

This looks like a fun warm-up before I properly get started on my second Trope_Bingo card! :DD (I've already got the Coffee Shop AU written! And the first two paragraphs + outline for the Curtainfic! And the outline for the Games Night! And other such things!) There are still a lot of prompts left floating, by the way, so if you want to drop any ideas feel free!


Put a number in my askbox and I’ll tell you my thoughts on the trope you’ve asked me about and if I’ve written it myself, or if I ever would

4. Ahhh, this old one! I've always enjoyed fics about huddling for warmth, probably because they're largely along the sane lines as "sharing a bed" fics. I just like the enforced proximity, and how characters react to that. Especially if they're in denial about their feelings beforehand. ;)

I've never quite got around to writing it, though. Mainly because I'm not entirely sure what I'd do! A surprising amount of my pairings don't feel temperature, or live on the Mediterranean...

5. Hah, another one I love! I've always been very fond of the whole Shag or Die premise - mainly because, again, of the potential for suddenly revealed feelings. Saying that, though, it can be done VERY creepily - so it very much depends on the characters/pairing involved. And as for writing it... I may have, once? Although that was more vague sex pollen stuff, so I'm not entirely sure it counts. I should have a crack at writing it one day, though! Once I've figured out HOW. XD


As you can probably tell from above, one of my favourite tropes ever. I LOVE fake relationships developing into real relationships, and all the character flailing that goes along with it. I think, in fact, that a good quarter of my recs list probably consists of fic along those lines.

And yet, oddly enough, I've never actually got around to writing it. Possibly because I'm worried about doing it justice. But ONE DAY! :DDDD

You should totally give Skyrim a try, that fandom's full of all manner of share-a-bed/share-body-heat/fake-marriage fics :)

And the Mediterranean gets very cold in winter *hint**cough**hinthint*
My Master's thesis had a photo of the Acropolis covered in snow and my wallpaper on my laptop is one of a snow covered Santa Maria il Fiore in Florence :)
