Laxness, thy name is Kellifer - Icon ficlets by request

Argh, I'm going to have to call an amnesty on the ficlets by request I've never gotten done because boy, have I ever let them lapse big time. You are all free to call shenanigans...

I need to get something done though to get my writing ramped up again as I have two sweet charity fics to do this month and my favourite ever writing meme was to write a small snippet based on people's icons.

So, comment with an icon you'd like to see a ficlet for or if you'd rather ask me to write a ficlet for one of *my* icons if one of those tickles your fancy. (Also, specify what you want it to be... gen/pairing) I will do Five By Friday just to get back into the swing of a deadline. Might not necessarily do the *first* five I get so feel free to hit me.

And hey, you never know. I've had an icon ficlet spawn a whole 'verse.
