Lucky Seven Meme

Hey guys, it's FRIDAY after another loooong week! A little while back, Connie at A Merry Heart tagged us in the Lucky 7 Meme. This is that meme that's been going around where people share snippets of their WIP. SO we're going to share a little something-something with you.

BUT FIRST since it's APA Month, here's your dose of APA-ness today. The sister and I at the Avenue of Dreams in Hong Kong circa 2009.





And now our Lucky 7 Meme entry. It's not actually from a WIP as I don't think we have 77 pages of joint-anything in any sort of chronological order. So we've taken the excerpt from the for-fun joint "novel" we wrote for our friend, A Story of Very Questionable Origin.



MEME RULES:

  • Go to page 77 of your current MS.
  • Go to line 7.
  • Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences, and post the as they’re written. No cheating.
  • Tag 7 other writers

The premise is a dinner party at a very special house with a whole lot of different people from different story-verses. LUCIFER is not the devil/angel you're thinking of; he's a boy named after said ex-angel.

"I dunno," said Lucifer. He shrugged and took on a tone of vague indifference. "Ours rebuilds houses and eats angels sometimes, and oh yeah, he guards the house. And eats intruders, or dices them, or beats them to a pulp or crushes them flat--not that I would know," he added innocently. "That's only what I've heard. Avanyu's very, very, very lazy most of the time. Sometimes he baby-sits though."

Avanyu: Most of the time. (Art by Alz, obvs)

Tag 7 writers: I have no idea who has been tagged already, so the FIRST 7 to comment are it! (But seriously, you don't have to if you don't want to...I guess..)

Before I dash, I can't wait to ASSEMBLE this weekend! :D THE AVENGERS, finally!



Avanyu is assembling an army of his own...

Which reminds me, I have to do this: Blog Me MAYbe prompt - May I share something funny? :)



Also, it is May 4th, making it STAR WARS DAY! So in honor of that, May the Fourth Be With You!

Q4U: Do you have any idea what Avanyu is? OR Share something funny with us!

I can't be tagged because I've already been tagged.

I enjoyed reading your excerpt, but now I have to google Avanyu because I have no idea who that is. BTW, loved the drawing and the sisters' photo.

I've been tagged but I've been so lazy and forgetful, I never got a chance to post mine! I looked it up though, and of course it's about food. Typical me. :) Love your excerpt!

I like your excerpt! I love the name Lucifer too. Particularly when the character isn't the devil!

AAAAAAAAAH that was so weird almost second hand embarrassing

Katy Upperman said...

Your excerpt is fantastic! Funny how enjoyable the name Lucifer can be when you're not thinking of THAT Lucifer. :)

Great pictures!

I love your excerpt. The character doesn't sound so innocent as he seems, though . . . I certainly wouldn't want to intrude in that house!

May the Fourth be with you.
