DA Music Meme For Writers

1. Pick a character, fandom, pairing, friendship, whatever.

2. Put on your music program on shuffle/random and start playing songs.

3. For each song, write something inspired by the song related to the theme you chose earlier. You only have the song length. No pre-planning and no writing after the song is over. No skipping songs either.

4. Do 10 songs and post. Make sure to include the song name/artist.


1. Bed of Roses by Bon Jovi

Tearing away from the clouds, I let my eyes linger on her sleeping form. There she lay, sound asleep on the field of red, her lips slightly apart that I wanted to kiss it, her cheeks almost the same hue as the flowers beneath her. "I like roses", she'd once told me. I'd resolved never to buy her any other flower.

Shifting on the thick, cushiony mat I'd brought, I sat up. The thorns were fucking killing me. But I paid little heed. Instead, I lay back down beside her, choosing to watch her instead of the sea of gases above. She was so beautiful, kind of like a rose.. When you get used to the thorns.

2. The Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson

And for once in my life, I've never laughed so hard that my eyes were welling up and my sides were hurting.

"What the hell is wrong with you, woman?" I laugh and she laughs with me, and I immediately fall in love with it, with her.

"You don't want to know, lazy." She retorts with a chuckle, and lunges at me, collapsing her lips into mine.

One minute she' making the crudest, funniest jokes, the next thing you know she's kissing me! But I don't complain. Really. She's the only woman that has ever made me feel the way I do, and as troublesome as it is, I love her for it.

3. Sunday Morning by Maroon 5

Suddenly, I love this morning because I wake up to the prettiest sight.

I trace circles on her bare arm, watching her intently. Rain is pouring outside, but I fall into more bliss. I now have an excuse for being late.

My fingers linger on her cheek, caressing the soft skin. God, she's beautiful. And suddenly, I feel grateful for whoever chose the matchups during the Chunin exams or for whoever appointed her ambassador of Suna.

My life would've been a boring hell without her. It's still hell, but hey, at least it's less boring.

4. Jump by Simple Plan

Oh God, morning again? Fuck. No way. No way I'm getting up. Yesterday was torture, what with all the paper work Tsunade dumped on me, not to mention the deers I had to tend. (Thanks Dad. Tch.) And to top it all off, Temari was with me the WHOLE DAY. The whole freaking day! Do you know how painfully loud she can get? Like, 'a-lot-louder-than-my-mom' loud. That's how loud.

So no.

I declare today my day off. Yeah..

"Shikamaru, you lazy ass!" Oh shit.

5. Every Little Thing You Do by Westlife

I don't really understand myself.. But..

When she smiles, I can't help but gape at how beautiful it is. I don't even know how someone considers a smile beautiful, but hers is.

When she laughs, it's like listening to my favorite song, only better. You don't sing along, you only listen because you want to hear every note, every chime emanating from her.

And her heart, although tainted by the memories of her past, is strong. She cares, more than she likes to admit. She loves her brothers and her village and would die to protect them. She doesn't cry, doesn't really show much emotion, but only because she wants to look strong for her brothers, for the people of Suna.

As she looks up at me, her question hanging between us, I finally answer. "It's not just one thing. I love everything about you."

6. I Swear by All-4-One

And as I look into her beautiful pools of teal, I don't feel so afraid anymore. As I look deeper, I realize that she still is.

But I grip her hands tighter, an assurance that no matter what happens, I will always, always be there for her.

A shadow of a smile curves her lips, and I smirk back. Looking back into her eyes, I see excitement, bliss. She trusts me. I love her.

The man clad in white asks me the question, in which I respond. "I do."

7. Like Toy Soldiers by Eminem (WTF?)

I sit there, fiddling my fingers, anxiously awaiting the announcement of my team's condition.

This is all my fault. All of it. I thought I knew the ropes, I thought I was fucking capable.. Turns out I wasn't.

Not only did I fail the mission, I'd endangered the lives of my team, my friends. And all I came out of it was a broken finger. Fuck.

And she tries to lighten my mood in her own crude way, talking about psychological training and chauvinism. I realize that she cares and that she genuinely wants to cheer me up, but I'm too depressed. I see her stealing concerned glances at me, but I walk away, unable to face her.

Suddenly, Tsunade-sama and Shizune come rushing into the scene, crying on about how my team was in stable conditions.

I cried.

8. Remember the Time by Michael Jackson

She stares in disbelief. I smile. In the middle of the arena was a candle-lit dinner for two, the result of winning a bet against Tsunade-sama. It was where we first fought. I thought she was beautiful back then. I still do.

9. No Surprise by Daughtry (Damn it)

"You're over?" No shock evident in his voice, only expectancy.

"She's from Suna. It'd never work out. And besides, she's too troublesome."

Chouji snorts. "That's why you loved her in the first place." He finishes, producing another chip from the bag.

Sigh. So true.

10. Grand Theft Autumn by Fall Out Boy

I kiss her fervently, tasting every curve, inhaling every scent.

"Shikamaru.." She moans pleedingly, but not out of pleasure. I suck on her neck. "He might see us.." She trails, making no effort to push me away. With that, I continue.


"Just break up with the guy if you find him so troublesome." I kiss her lips to keep her silent. She kisses back, an assurance that she will think about my suggestion.

A/N: Well, thank God that's over. I love memes! ^^ It's so much fun. Saves me from thinking up a theme for a story. BTW, I totally broke rule #3. Like, constantly. And I know 'No Surprise' is actually about breaking up and being happy about the separation, but.. No. Lol. I know I'm being such a fangirl about all of this but no way I'm letting them be happy separated. XD I got the power! REVIEW please! :)
