versipellis: Ah... oops

I am so sorry, I completely forgot I was expected to choose a winner. Anyway. The winner was radendaren's Fluctuations - I really liked the way the scenario and state of the world was set up in so few words.

shy_dramaqueen: Winner!

Somehow, I don't think there'll be any more entries. :p But I have a whooping five to choose from, so what the heck!

My two favourites were Singsong and Realisation, and though I tend to be biased towards fics involving cats, the winner is versipellis's Realisation!

Congrats! I hope you're better than me at finding inspirational lyrics. :p

Yeah, so I did all five entries. This wasn't to win, but because I felt like it *shrug* At least two of them won't appeal to anyone other than me.

So... this is kinda spammy.

Oh well ^^

[Title] Singsong
[Rating] G
[Fandom] Jet Set Radio

[Notes/summary] Set after the first movie. One in a series of drabbles I'm writing off and on, so probably won't make much sense to anyone.

Aaaand we strike the three-month anniversary since this community saw a valid drabble. (Mine doesn't count since I'm the current judge. :p)

So, two brand new challenges, bringing us up to a total of five sources of inspiration.

Artist: Billy Joel
Song: Pianoman

Lyrics: "Son can you play me a memory?/I'm not really sure how it goes,/But it's sad and it's sweet/And I knew it complete/When I wore a younger man's clothes"

or

"And the waitress is practicing politics/As a businessman slowly gets stoned/Yes they're sharing a drink they call loneliness/But it's better than drinking alone."

Good luck! :D

shy_dramaqueen: *pokes community*

Sorry for abandoning the community, I just feel bad for using other people's dial-up connection too much. :) I'm adding another quote to the challenge, as well as a drabble of my own that of course won't count when I choose a winner.

Current challenges:

Artist: Aristocats, Disney
Lyrics: Everybody wants to be a cat,/because a cat's the only cat who knows where it's at;/while playin' jazz you always has a Welcome mat,/cause everybody wants to be a cat.

or

Artist: America
Lyrics: When i'm alone in my bed alright/I can hear the rain fight the night/Oh, ain't it a shame/Oh, i mean about the rain/Rain, ain't it a shame

or

Artist: Yello
Lyrics: Not any track is turning but the race is in my head/I'm attacking the illusion but the stopping drives me mad/Time is running out and the illusion fades away/Time is running out another day is on it's way

Come on, people! There's practically nothing you can't write about now. Jazz, cats, rain, night, races, or the absence of either. Or welcome mats. Or days! There's lots of nice things to write about days.

Lyrics: When i'm alone in my bed alright/I can hear the rain fight the night/Oh, ain't it a shame/Oh, i mean about the rain/Rain, ain't it a shame
