Vol4.9.2011-Four Rooms

Choose one of the following prompts to write one ficlet for your Muse. Each ficlet must be at least 300 words long. You may also reply to the prompts with icons, wallpapers and videos! Please place ficlets and large artwork under a cut and/or link to your own LJ.

This weeks prompts are from the movie Four Rooms.



Margaret: Hi, Ted. I'm Margaret. You sound down. Is your New Year's not starting off well?
Ted the Bellhop: No, Margaret. This New Year's Eve is not starting off well! This one is going pretty fucking badly!

Angela: Unfortunately, you don't have the balls to back up the actions of your huge cock.

Sarah: There's a dead body in my bed and it smells like shit and it looks even worse. And if you don't get your ass up here now, my Daddy's gonna lay you down next to her. I swear to fucking God!

Man: No. I don't trust baby-sitters. My children are safer alone than with some fucked-up pedophile baby-sitter I don't know from the man in the fucking moon.

Angela: Everybody starts out as strangers, Ted. It's where we end up that counts.

Chester: Like my old grand daddy used to say, "The less a man makes declarative statements, the less apt he is to look foolish in retrospect."

Chester: Let me explain what we're talking about here.
Ted the Bellhop: No, sir, you don't have to explain anything to me. Whatever constitutes a good time as far as you guys are concerned, well, that's your business.

Eva: You're my last chance.
Ted the Bellhop: W- Whoa. Uh-uh. No way. Nope. Besides... it's against hotel policy. I was warned. "No sex with the clientele."

John Constantine: But a single word can give you courage, or turn your favorite pleasure into your worst nightmare.

Angela Dodson: I used to pretend that I didn't - that I didn't see things.

John Constantine: What would *you* do if you were sentenced to a prison where half the inmates were put there by you?
So, what are you gonna do? Are you just gonna live some normal, apple pie life? Is that it?

Midnite: You know the rules of my house. While here you *will* abide by them.

John Constantine: You've waited twenty years for me, Lu. What's another twenty seconds?

Gabriel: [eagerly] Do you want revenge? Is that what you're thinking right now? Do it.

John Constantine: God's a kid with an ant farm, lady. He's not planning anything.

Gabriel: You are going to die young because you smoked 30 cigarettes a day since you were 15... and you're going to go to hell because of the life you took.

This weeks prompts are from the 1972 film 1776.



John Adams: A second flood, a simple famine, plagues of locusts everywhere, or a cataclysmic earthquake, I'd accept with some despair. But no, You sent us Congress! Good God, Sir, was that fair?

John Adams: At a stage in life when other men prosper, I'm reduced to living in Philadelphia.

John Dickinson: Don't forget that most men with nothing would rather protect the possibility of becoming rich than face the reality of being poor.

Dr. Benjamin Franklin: Treason is a charge invented by winners as an excuse for hanging the losers.
John Adams: [scoffs] I have more to do than stand here and listen to you quote yourself.
Dr. Benjamin Franklin: Oh, that was a new one!

Dr. Benjamin Franklin: Revolutions come into this world like bastard children, Mr. Dickinson - half improvised and half compromised.

John Adams: This is a revolution, dammit! We're going to have to offend SOMEbody!

John Adams: It doesn't matter. I won't be in the history books anyway, only you. Franklin did this and Franklin did that and Franklin did some other damn thing. Franklin smote the ground and out sprang George Washington, fully grown and on his horse. Franklin then electrified him with his miraculous lightning rod and the three of them - Franklin, Washington, and the horse - conducted the entire revolution by themselves.

Dr. Benjamin Franklin: A rebellion is always legal in the first person, such as "our rebellion." It is only in the third person - "their rebellion" - that it becomes illegal.

John Adams: Wake up, Franklin, you're going to New Brunswick!
Dr. Benjamin Franklin: [Half asleep] Like hell I am. What for?
Hopkins: The whoring and the drinking!

Dr. Benjamin Franklin: Those who would give up some of their liberty in order to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Hopkins: Dear Sir, You are without any doubt a rogue, a rascal, a villain, a thief, a scoundrel and a mean, dirty, stinking, sniveling, sneaking, pimping, pocket-picking, thrice double damn no good son of a bitch.

Vol4.6.2011 - Supernatural - Dean Winchester

CHANGES TO THE MUSES:
1breath and I have decided to post monthly prompts. We also decided not to wait until the end of the weekly cycle to jump to Vol4. Since no one had responded to the last weekly prompt set, I'm moving Dean Winchester to Vol4.6.2011. I know a lot of people read this comm and are members. Please post fics when you can. It's very disheartening that Scully and I are the only ones posting here.

All right. Let me tell you something. There are two things that I know for certain. One. Bert and Ernie are gay. Two. You are not gonna die a virgin. Not on my watch. Let's go.

Sorry. Not a lot of scenery here in East Texas, kinda got to make your own.

People believe in Santa Claus. How come I'm not getting hooked up every Christmas?

So, what are you gonna do? Are you just gonna live some normal, apple pie life? Is that it?

House rules, Sammy. Driver picks the music, shotgun shuts his cake hole.

Well, because I'm the oldest, which means I'm always right.

No, the X-Files was a TV show. This is real.

I'm gonna do a public service and, uh, let you know that-that you over-share.

This weeks prompts are a request from sylar, the ever acerbic Fox Mulder.



Mulder: Maybe we should call in a bomb threat to Houston. I think it's free beer night at the Astrodome.

Scully: ...You're saying that time disappeared. Time can't just disappear. It's a universal invariant!
[car restarts itself]
Mulder: Not in this zip code!

Dr. Blockhead: Did you know that through the protective Chinese practice of Tiea Bu Shan, you can train your testicles to draw up into your abdomen?
Mulder: Oh, I'm doing that as we speak.

Mulder: This is not an exact science. If it were me, I'd be on the guy 24/7. I'd be in bed with him kissing his holy ass.
ASAC Dakota Whitney: Father Joe is a convicted pedophile.
Mulder: [surprised] ... Maybe I'd stay out of bed with him.

Scully: You lied. You have seen this before, I can tell. You lied to them.
Mulder: I would never lie. I willfully participated in a campaign of misinformation.

Mulder: Hey, Scully, check this out! Mango-kiwi tropical swirl... Now we know we're dealin' with a madman!

Scully: I must remind you, this goes against the bureau's policy of male and female agents staying in the same motel room while on assignment.
Mulder: Try any of that Tailhook crap on me Scully, and I'll kick your ass.

Mulder: I tied up an air phone for three hours. I don't speak Japanese, but I think some businessman told me to stick a piece of sushi where the sun don't shine.

Chuck Burks: Looks like your underground hero went from counterculture to counterfeiter.
Fox Mulder: One more pun and I pull out my gun.

Frohike: So Mulder, where's your little partner?
Mulder: She couldn't come. She was afraid of her love for you.

Scully: I guess it's why we go to Aubrey.
Fox Mulder: Yes. And, also, I've always been intrigued by women called BJ.

Scully: Snake handling. I didn't learn that in catechism class.
Mulder: That's funny - I knew a couple of catholic school girls who were expert at it!

Why do you think I didn't tell you? I knew how you'd react. What I've done, you can't forgive, it's not in your nature.

What better place to hide? I'm in charge of finding myself and I make sure it never happens. Even got a few entries on you in my journal.

We've got to stop meeting like this, people will talk.

Cute I can do cute.

I spent years loosing my conscience only to have him go and find it again.

I killed, but I didn't just kill fifty, I didn't just kill a hundred. I killed thousands. I killed ten thousand. And I was good at it. And it wasn't for vengeance. It wasn't for greed. It was because I liked it.… Do you know who I was? *Death*! Death. Death on horse!

"There is no fulfillment that is not made sweeter for the prolonging of desire"

"When Love cast me out, it was Cruelty who took pity upon me"

"Yes my lord, but questions are dangerous, for they have answers"

"Oh love and hate are two sides of the same blade"

"To have a traitor for an ally is to have an enemy in waiting"

"It is my observations, though, that happiness limits the amount of suffering one is willing to inflict upon others"

Toula Portokalos: Nice Greek girls who don't find a husband, work in the family restaurant. So here I am, day after day, year after year, thirty and way past my expiration date.

Toula Portokalos: Ma, Dad is so stubborn. What he says goes. "Ah, the man is the head of the house!"
Maria Portokalos: Let me tell you something, Toula. The man is the head, but the woman is the neck. And she can turn the head any way she wants.

Gus Portokalos: Kimono, kimono, kimono. Ha! Of course! Kimono is come from the Greek word himona, is mean winter. So, what do you wear in the wintertime to stay warm? A robe. You see: robe, kimono. There you go!

Nick Portokalos: I've never seen my sister this happy, Ian. If you hurt her, I'll kill you and make it look like an accident.

Toula Portokalos: Why?... Why do you love me?
Ian Miller: Because I came alive when I met you

Toula Portokalos: [narrating] My dad believed in two things: That Greeks should educate non Greeks about being Greek and every ailment from psoriasis to poison ivy can be cured with Windex.

Toula Portokalos: When I was growing up, I knew I was different. The other girls were blonde and delicate, and I was a swarthy six-year-old with sideburns.
