Rating: General

Fandoms: Avengers Academy (video game), Welcome To Night Vale
Rating: General
Summary: Avengers Academy has a dog park. No dogs are allowed.
Notes: Hello-Shellhead on tumblr posted an image of a common bug in the Avengers Academy game, where the statue of Steve Rogers shows up as a black void. Based on this, Shinyblackbird prompted Portal of some sort? Misplaced chunk of the Dog Park?

sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: The Michelin Man
Rating: General
Summary: Steve was not prepared for this at six am on his day off.
Notes: Minopoke on tumblr posted the following:
"Michelin has gone to extraordinary lengths to maintain the anonymity of its inspectors. Many of the company's top executives have never met an inspector; inspectors themselves are advised not to disclose their line of work, even to their parents (who might be tempted to boast about it); and, in all the years that it has been putting out the guide, Michelin has refused to allow its inspectors to speak to journalists."
Okay but Michelin inspector AU where they use all the cheesy spy lines and dodgy excuses and their SO is convinced they work for the CIA or something. but actually they just really secretly review restaurants.

Starkerized then suggested I don't know who fits the bill for this job but my first thought was FOODIEVERSE.

It's not quite what Minopoke suggested but the whole thing gave me an idea.

Warnings: None.

Part of the Foodieverse series; also available at AO3.

The banging on Steve's apartment door woke him from a dead sleep... )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: Apprentices
Rating: General
Summary: Using Bucky to keep Tony entertained wasn't Steve's best idea.
Notes: Prompted by onemuseleft: I misread "Starbuck" as "Starkbuck" and got all excited that you were writing a Tony/Bucky domestic baking AU. I saw domestic baking but I heard Foodieverse.
Warnings: None.

Part of the Foodieverse series; also available at AO3.

All-Purpose Flour is my nemesis. )

Truckbru

Jun. 25th, 2016 09:26 am
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: Truckbru
Rating: General
Summary: Tony's idea of a food truck is...interesting.
Notes: Inspired by two prompts:
agentpaxieamor: Steve is going to be taking his truck to NY ComicCon, Tony decides he has to have a truck there too. His truck is... Interesting.
katisatotalnerd: Are there any parades in the Foodieverse? Does Steve drag Tony to the parades? Do Steve and Sam set up their trucks along the parade path? Does Steve badger Tony to set up some sort of promotional table for TOBRU?
Warnings: None.

Part of the Foodieverse series; also available at AO3.

Notes: Prompted by drivemetogeek: What's/Who's Jarvis in Foodieverse?
Warnings: None.

Part of the Foodieverse series; also available at AO3.

JARVIS! )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: The Brother and the Mother
Rating: Teen and Up
Summary: Clint's brother shows up, and Clint disappears.
Notes: I love how these "the _____ and the _____" titles keep getting more ridiculous. Also, I know Barney's been somewhat rehabilitated as of late, in the Hawkeye comic, but I love him as a villain...

Part of the Silver Age series; also available at AO3.

The first the Young Ultimates knew about it... )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: The Ranger And The Stray
Summary: Clint Barton was always the kid brother in the background, until one day he definitely was not.
Rating: Teen and Up
Notes: In a previous story in the series, The Music Room And The Penthouse, I mentioned that Clint’s role in the inner circle of Tony’s friends is akin to “mascot”. It inspired me to write about Clint, the youngest member of the hottest society set in Manhattan and thus the entire city’s baby brother, clinging desperately to Tony and Bucky as his Gay Role Models. And the moment Tony offhandedly introduces him to Phil Coulson...
Warnings: Mention of kidnapping and recuperation.

Part of the Silver Age series; also available at AO3.

Phil! Hey, Phil! )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: The Music Room And The Penthouse
Rating: Teen and Up
Summary: Maria Stark makes a place for her son's many friends; Tony also makes his own place for them.
Notes: This was initially two separate stories, neither titled, but both being short I thought they went particularly well together. Written for the June Fic Fest in June of 2016. Prompts were:
Anonymous: I just adore your Jan and Natasha interacting with Maria, and I'd love to see their shopping trip! Or just the aftermath, with Jarvis providing soothing beverages after a frenetic day out.
Anonymous: I really love your Silver Age series, so could you maybe write Tony and Bucky cuddling/tinkering together in that universe?
Warnings: None.

Part of the Silver Age universe; also available at AO3.

Maria was playing piano when Tony came into the morning room... )
sam_storyteller: (Slash Fic)
Title: Monitor
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Summary: Tony attends a wedding; Steve starts making a little space.
Notes: Natasha Stark is a canonical gender-bent Tony Stark whose marriage to Steve Rogers in Earth 3490 prevented the Civil War. This story is based on a glorious art/headcanon from [tumblr.com profile] ireallyshouldbedrawing: Somehow Tony Starks from different universes ended up in one but they worked it out and were able to go home and a few Tonys got a long really well, including 3490!Natasha and 616!Tony maybe and they promised to keep in touch (secretly obviously). And then it was Natasha's wedding day and she asked if the other Tonys could ‘be there' for her and this one Tony holed himself up in his lab to ‘attend' the wedding and he was happy for Natasha but so jealous at the same time and he was so overwhelmed that he didn't hear Steve, who just got back from a mission, came in.

Also available at AO3.

Steve was tired, and he really should change out of his uniform after the mission... )

Title: Leader Of The Free World
Rating: PG
Summary: Clint Barton's presidential campaign started as a joke. It didn't end that way, except for Steve.
Notes: Written for MemPrime, who requested it as a birthday fic. (Sorry I didn't actually write the debate you suggested, fatfemme-inist, I chickened out. :D)
Other Notes: I don't know how presidential campaigns work, guys. I didn't do any research because politics is very boring and I only research it when I am myself voting to make sure I don't vote for Darth Vader in disguise. Please forgive for any inaccuracies, I wasn't willing to put that amount of energy into what is essentially four thousand words of LOL CLINT BARTON.
Warnings: None.

It was a dare... )
sam_storyteller: (Crossover Fic)
Title: The Cyborg Arm Job
Rating: Teen and Up
Summary: The Leverage crew run into a new friend, find some buried treasure, and fight some Nazis. It's a pretty good day. (Leverage/MCU crossover)
Warnings: None.
Notes: Prompted by a tumblr post and written during a Sam Writes Live on March 12, 2016.

sam_storyteller: (Blue Moon Coffee)
Title: Light Show
Rating: Teen and Up
Summary: DJ is really excited about Tony's birthday, and at first nobody's really sure why.
Notes: Based in Scifigrl47's "Tales of the Bots" universe. Happy birthday, Sci. I remember tormenting you with this idea ages ago so I figured this would be a good time to actually write it. Look, you can have DJ back now, he's only a little sticky...

Also available at AO3.

Does he seem...weirdly excited to you? )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: Promptfest Short Fics
Rating: Teen
Summary: Several short fics written for a promptfest, primarily Avengers but also in White Collar, Discworld, and a number of AUs.
Notes: This was meant to be a "five sentence" prompt fest -- someone sends me a sentence, I write the next five. It got a little out of hand.
Warnings: None.

Title: Audio Commentary Track With Steve Rogers
Rating: Teen

Warnings: None.

Latitude eighty degrees north... )
sam_storyteller: (Slash Fic)
Title: Ticking Over
Rating: Explicit (Steve/Tony/Bucky)
Summary: After a moment of vast insecurity, Steve and Bucky make sure Tony understands exactly where his place is: in the middle.
Notes: This was originally a shorter story written for the Bucky Mini Fic Fest, but when I expanded it I thought I should probably make it a standalone. Originally prompted by Charmedor on Tumblr, asking for "anything Steve/Tony/Bucky", it was expanded when @dreamcatchersdaughter sent me an ask: "...you wrote an OT3 fic I fell madly in love with and that I re-read all the time [...] I was sort of wondering, if there was gonna be a sequel of them reassuring Tony. Or what the next morning would look like, the two of them tag teaming Tony."
Warnings: None.

Tony rambled in his sleep... )
sam_storyteller: (Slash Fic)
Title: Cherry Ride
Rating: Explicit
Summary: A SHIELD agent named Roger Stevens told Tony that his nickname was "Cap". Tony didn't connect the dots until it was much, much too late.
Notes: Inspired by an anonymous fic prompt here: "Steve woke up from the ice and went to the Stark Expo and still got awed but instead of Howard it was Tony and ofc it was more amazing bUT THEN HE GOT TO MEET THE PERSON AND HOT DAMN, THE GENIUS IS CUTE and thus the 'Mr. Stark' in the Avengers movie was actually Steve trying to play it cool while fanboying inside, amen". I'm not sure I did quite what was intended, but I had a lot of fun.
More Notes: the Lincoln-Kennedy urban legend is a real thing.. Also we've established Tony was probably driving a 1954 Cadillac Eldorado.
Warnings: Brief mention of POW experiences and PTSD.

Also available at AO3.

This is Cap. )
sam_storyteller: (Slash Fic)
Title: Holding Hands At The Movie Palace
Rating: Teen (Steve/Bucky)
Summary: Steve wants to know what Bucky remembers; Steve's own memories are much more interesting to Bucky.
Notes: Written for @kitkatcabbit on Tumblr, who went above and beyond to procure some very specific socks for me this past autumn. This is my thank-you. :) I picked out the themes based on stuff I saw on your tumblr -- Steve/Bucky, Bucky being good for Steve, and Steve being an angry chihuahua. :D
Warnings: Passing mention of an attempted (and thwarted) gay bashing.

Also available at AO3.

They started the game as something not a game at all. )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: Hotline
Rating: Teen (Steve/Tony)
Summary: Steve knows a lot about cooking and he loves to help people. The job was a natural fit.
Notes: Based in the foodieverse, where everyone is a chef; you probably need to read that to fully get it, but all you really need to know is that Tony is co-owner of a haute cuisine molecular gastronomy joint called TOBRU and Steve drives a food truck called War On Hunger. Inspired by a tumblr post about Butterball's helpline, which you can read here.
Warnings: None.

Also available at AO3.

I can't believe you're not working on Thanksgiving. )
sam_storyteller: (Slash Fic)
Title: Fighting Ghosts
Rating: Teen (Steve/Tony)
Summary: Tony Stark is a Seer, someone vulnerable to phantasms, malevolent spirits of the dead. He's meant to have a bonded Fighter, someone who can defend him -- or attack on his command. So far he's had no luck finding a bond, but that's about to change...
Notes: Inspired by a fandom dream by @allofthefeelings on Tumblr, and first posted here: "The artificial concept drawing people into state-mandated relationships was not D/s or A/B/O or whatever, but rather ghost hunting and who could fight ghosts had to be paired with who could communicate with them and the rituals involved making a scythe to prove devotion."
Warnings: Some bullying at the start.

Also available at AO3.

There's fifteen people in the chapel, which means someone's going home unmatched. )
sam_storyteller: (Gen Fic)
Title: The Adventures Of Isobel, Princess Of Space
Rating: PG (Clint/Coulson background)
Summary: Izzy is settling into her new school, and Clint and Coulson are settling into their new relationship -- but Clint's having some parental separation issues, Coulson's still recovering from being dead, and a weekend to themselves would be really nice. Thor might be able to help them with their babysitting problem...
Notes: Partly inspired by Gypsylady on AO3 who requested "the story of Thor taking Izzy to Asgard so she can be a space princess." I have to admit this is stitched up together from three separate Izzy stories so may not be the most coherent, but I hope you guys enjoy it anyway. And if you're interested, you can witness the glory and horror of The Brave Little Toaster here.
Warnings: None.

Also available at AO3.

Isobel started school. )

Title: Works No Longer In Progress, 2015
Rating: G
Summary: Every year I find the bits and ends of stories never finished (or finished but never started) and either set them aside to work on or post them, since I won't be completing them as stories.
Notes: I feel like this is shorter than usual this year, and all Marvel/MCU; I hope you enjoy it regardless. Each story fragment has an explanation for it at the start.
Warnings: None.

Also available at AO3.

Title: Keeping Steve
Rating: Explicit (Steve/Tony/Pepper)
Summary: The gifts from Tony and Pepper are nice, and Steve secretly likes showing off signs that he belongs to them -- until some offhanded teasing from Clint makes him wonder if they're gifts from his lovers or payment for services rendered.
Notes: Based on a suggestion now lost to the mists of time but seconded by @scifigrl47. (See the end of the fic for details.)
Warnings: None.

Also available at AO3.

He's going to try to give you things. )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: The Comrade And The Carnie
Rating: G
Summary: The Stark Family And Adopted Waifs field trip to Coney Island to buy Natasha a hot dog started out with nine people and ended with ten. Well, Clint didn't take up much space and was impressively skilled...
Notes: Written during a live real-time "Watch me write" on December 6th. This is a coda to the Silver Age AU, where Tony was born in 1950 and Bucky was recovered in 1967 in a failed attempt to assassinate the Starks. Inspired by a brilliant title offered by MewWitch in comments: "Any Chance that the trip to Coney Island will have them meet up with a certain Carney archer? It could be titled The Comrade and the Carnie."
Warnings: None.

Also available at AO3.

I wouldn't think Howard would want to go to Coney Island... )
sam_storyteller: (Slash Fic)
Title: The Immortal Hawkeye
Rating: Teen and Up (Clint/Bucky, Steve/Tony)
Summary: Clint's a little older than he looks, and his DNA has a few surprises in store, too.
Notes: Based on a series of conversations between myself and @captn-sara-holmes on tumblr and in ask messages; the bulk of the conversation is here.
Warnings: None.

Also available at AO3.

It was a sunny, crisp morning in early autumn... )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: The Captain and the Ghost
Rating: Teen and Up (Bucky/Tony; Rhodey/Carol background)
Summary: In the summer of 1970, Tony Stark is leading the expedition ship Marvel in search of the body of Steve Rogers. He has good friends with him: ship's captain Carol Danvers, medic Sam Wilson, best friend James Rhodes and boyfriend James Barnes, as well as scientist Vernon van Dyne and his daughter Janet. But they've also been assigned a diplomatic observer from the USSR named Natalia Romanoff, and the barren chill of Greenland is not the only threat dogging their search.
Notes: This is the third in the series that began with The Soldier And The Hurricane, an AU where Tony was born in 1950 and Bucky Barnes was recovered during a failed assassination attempt on the Starks in 1967.
Warnings: Some minor era-appropriate racism, some mentions of PTSD.

Also available at AO3.

The shout was a bellow of pure, unadulterated joy... )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: Confession
Rating: Gen
Summary: Peter Parker doesn't have to make a decision between his two callings -- but he thinks it's probably time he should.
Notes: It came to my attention that the Magazine'verse had exactly 55,555 words filed on it at AO3, so I thought I'd do some entertaining short writing for it. Someone suggested "You could add a 1,234 word story" and thus...
Warnings: None.

Also available at AO3.

The Truth, by Peter Parker )
sam_storyteller: (Gen Fic)
Title: The Judgement Of Bucky Barnes
Rating: General Audiences
Summary: Bucky is having some issues adjusting to the new world, but they aren't the ones Steve or anyone else expected.
Notes: Based on a comment on my "Russian Judges" story by TheRogueHuntress, requesting "a whole story about Bucky judging everyone and everything".
Warnings: None.

Also available at AO3.

I honestly was skeptical about this... )
sam_storyteller: (Slash Fic)
Title: Subtlety Not Our Strong Point
Rating: Teen and Up (Bucky/Sam)
Summary: Bucky is not good at proposing, but once he managed, he and Sam were going to let people find out organically. Unfortunately, Tony Stark has never done anything organically in his life.
Notes: This is a story set in the Tiny Spy Assassin Steve universe, after Desert Knights.
Warnings: Mention of PTSD-induced nightmares.

Also available at AO3.

James Barnes was a man of relatively few words. )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: The Pretender and the Prince
Rating: Explicit (Bucky/Tony)
Summary: It's the fall of 1967, and Tony Stark is determined to do his father proud as the new head of Stark Robotics. Between his growing relationship with Tony and his new life as a recovering assassin, Bucky's just trying to stay on his feet. Then someone takes a shot at Tony in the middle of a busy workday, and all bets are off...
Notes: This follows a few months after The Soldier And The Hurricane, an AU where Tony was born in 1950 and Bucky was recovered in 1967, rather than assassinating Howard and Maria.
Warnings: Discussion and brief description of PTSD and trauma-related behavior; some brief discussion of period-appropriate homophobia.

Also available at AO3.

Dr. Stephen Strange was not a particularly reassuring or gentle man... )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: Puttin' On The Ritz
Rating: R (Steve/Bucky/Peggy)
Summary: It's 1951, Steve and Bucky are both home again, and Peggy couldn't be happier. But Bucky could be, which means Steve is fretting, and Peggy can't let her boys be unhappy when there's a very simple solution to this problem.
Warnings: Brief mentions of PTSD (nightmares).

Sequel to New Threads, in which Bucky was rescued from Hydra in the late 1940s and Steve was recovered from the ice in 1949.

Also available at AO3.

Steve's life, in the winter of 1950, was a strange one. )
sam_storyteller: (Gen Fic)
Title: Flag On The Play
Rating: PG
Summary: Steve is haunted by a phantom pain he can't explain, and isn't sure how to ask for help. Fortunately, Tony is pretty sure he knows what's wrong, and how to sell the Avengers on fixing it.
Warnings: It's not simple to warn for, but Steve spends a significant part of the story isolated and unhappy about it; might be triggery for people with social anxiety issues.
Notes: Thanks to Scifigrl47 for helping me break the "how to I end this goddamn thing" block. I owe you a Mushroom Supreme. :D

Also available at AO3.

There was a dull ache in those days... )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: Steve Rogers Versus the Multiverse
Rating: PG
Summary: Agent Steve Rogers, callsign Nomad, has been pushed through a dimensional wall. Fortunately there are a couple of Tonys to set things right...
Warnings: None.
Notes: Set in the Tiny Spy Assassin Steve universe. This story arose out of three prompts asking for Tiny Spy Assassin Steve to visit other alternate universes:

From essie007: Tiny Assasain Steve meets other versions of himself from the multiverse including MCU and 616 and whoever else you want to include.
From mouseolaw: Would you do a Tiny!Steve meets MCU!Steve?
From chibiesque: I'd really love a short cross-over with tiny Steve and Captain America Steve.

Is it starting to become unsettling? )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
This is a series of short stories set in and around the Tiny Spy Assassin Steve AU, which is comprised (so far) of Toy Soldiers and Desert Knights. It may not make much sense without having read those first.

These are also available at AO3.

Title: Dinner and a Show
Rating: PG
Summary: Tony still thinks Steve is an art student. Steve still thinks Tony's going to dump him when he finds out the truth.
Notes: For the prompt by Quietellen on tumblr: "Can you write about what it might have looked like if Steve had rescued Tony but not revealed his true occupation and Tony went on thinking he was an artist? How else might Tony have learned the truth?"
Warnings: None.

When he made his escape from the Ten Rings... )

Title: This Looks Bad
Rating: PG
Warnings: Brief, non-lethal animal harm.
Summary: Meeting Natasha's boss is like meeting the guy who signs God's paychecks. (I realize this could also read "Clint and Steve fight a bird; the bird is unharmed.")
Notes: For a prompt by Anon: "TSAS Clint: Assholes Against the World! (or, how did they meet, and who got blown up when they did?)"

Wait, what do you mean, your boss? )

Title: Canonical
Rating: PG
Summary: Tony is wrong and Steve knows he's wrong and he knows Bucky and Sam will back him up on this – wait, what?
Warnings: None.
Notes: For a prompt from shakespearean-ginger, who said: "Tony and Steve's first really vicious fight where Steve is in the wrong."

You could not be more wrong. )

Title: Fight It Out
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Tony catches a hand-to-hand demonstration between Steve and Peggy. It makes an impression.
Warnings: None.
Notes: For a prompt from Anon: "Tony sees Steve training with the other spies."

It wasn't like Tony was unaware Steve could fight... )

Title: Not Not Married
Rating: PG
Summary: Peggy has a great idea about not being married.
Warnings: None.
Notes: For a prompt from Archwrites: "Peggy has Opinions. Because Peggy is awesome. I mean, this opens the door for basically just any Peggy fic."

You know, English... )

Title: The Underdogs
Rating: G
Summary: A covert op to bust up a nest of neo-nazis goes terribly, destructively right.
Warnings: None.

Happy birthday to me! )

Title: Iron Nomad
Rating: PG
Summary: Steve is having the best anniversary ever. Tony is having a headache.

This is the very goddamn definition of a busman's holiday. )

Title: A Wing And A Prayer
Rating: PG (Tony/Pepper/Steve)
Summary: Tony Stark doesn't do anything in an ordinary way, including pet ownership.
Notes: This originated here. I can't really explain it. This is a vast, sprawling AU containing many parts; if you're interested in "DVD Extras" including short posts and fanart, you can check out the masterpost here.
Warnings: An animal is harmed but not killed, and the descriptions of harm are brief.

Title: L☆VE
Summary: Steve's favorite shirt is at the center of a debate about masculinity, sexuality, and whether or not he did in fact steal it like a thief in the night from Tony.
Warnings: Some brief homophobia aimed at Steve.
Notes: So, I posted this image to Tumblr with the caption "I've found Steve's favorite shirt":


Things snowballed from there.

Really a lot of credit goes to ifeelbetterer on tumblr for the framework of the whole thing and at least 12% of the credit goes to notimpossiblejustabitunlikely on tumblr for pointing out that it was undoubtedly Tony's shirt first.

You can view and purchase the IT'S STARS AND STRIPES shirt here. It's been around a while, I didn't invent it or anything.

Also available at AO3.

sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: The Soldier And The Hurricane
Rating: PG-13
Summary: When the Winter Soldier fails to kill Howard and Maria Stark and is taken prisoner in the summer of 1967, his salvation comes in the unlikely form of a Russian-speaking, father-disobeying, endlessly-tinkering seventeen-year-old: Tony Stark.
Warnings: Mentions of alcoholism, brief mentions of suicide; various references to Howard Stark's terrible parenting (no child abuse, just...poor parenting).
Notes: I started writing this on my phone on the bus on the way to a walk-in clinic, and I don't think I wrote a single word where I wasn't running a fever. So have fun with that. I did. :D

Title: Longform
Rating: PG-13 (Violence)
Summary: The Fugitive's History: A Search For A Man Out Of Time. (How I Found Bucky Barnes And Barely Lived To Tell About It.)
Notes: This is a sequel to Exclusive, which was written as a piece of longform journalism about the Avengers, pre-CA2 but set in a slightly alternate universe where the Avengers have moved into Stark Tower. Longform is set after CA2, pre-Age Of Ultron, and while it acknowledges the events of CA2, it uses the same general continuity as Exclusive.
Warnings: Mild violence; mentions and portrayal of PTSD. What you'd generally expect from a story with a barely-recovering Bucky at its core.

Also, there's no twist at the end of this one, guys, sorry. I couldn't top the twist at the end of the last story. :D

On Storytelling:

Fanfiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of owned by folk.
-- Henry Jenkins

Life is very short. We die on the march. But there is nothing outside the march so nothing can be lost to it. The missing plays of Sophocles will turn up piece by piece, or be written again in another language.
-- Tom Stoppard

Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.
-- G. Bernard Shaw

A good story should provoke discussion, debate, argument...and the occasional bar fight.
-- J. Michael Strazynski

Here's how to become a great artist. First, get miserable. Misery drives you to become a great artist, but the art does nothing for your misery, which drives you to drugs, which makes you a lousy artist.
-- House M.D.

Humans? They're long gone. Vanished. Extinct. They only exist in stories.
-- Ferngully

Anton Chekov, who was a doctor, said, "Medicine is my wife; writing is my mistress."

Se non e vero, e ben trovato. (Even if it’s not true, it’s a good story.)
-- Italian Proverb

The recipe for becoming a good novelist is easy to give, but to carry it out presupposes qualities one is accustomed to overlook. One has only to make a hundred or so sketches for novels, none longer than two pages but of such distinctness that every word in them is necessary. One should write down anecdotes every day until one has learnt how to give them the most pregnant and effective form; one should be tireless in collecting and describing human types and characters; one should above all relate things to others and listen to others relate, keeping one's eyes and ears open for the effect produced on those present, one should travel like a landscape painter or costume designer. One should, finally, reflect on the motives of human actions, disdain no signpost for instruction about them and be a collector of these things by day and night. One should continue in this many-sided exercise for some ten years; what is then created in the workshop will be fit to go out into the world.
-- Nietzsche

The thief. Once committed beyond a certain point he should not worry himself too much. Thieving is God's message to him. Let him try and be a good thief.
-- Samuel Butler

What is written without effort is generally read without pleasure.
-- Samuel Johnson

Same story, different versions, and all are true.
-- POTC: Dead Man's Chest

I am a humble artist
moulding my earthly clod,
adding my labour to nature's,
simply assisting God.
-- Piet Hein

Every archaeologist knows in his heart why he digs. He digs, in pity and humility, that the dead may live again, that what is past may not be forever lost, that something may be salvaged from the wrack of the ages.
-- From "The Testimony of the Spade"

Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.
-- Francis Bacon

It is better, of course, to know useless things than to know nothing.
-- Seneca epistles 88 45

When asked how she acquired her knowledge of science, Octavia Butler replied, "I read."

Imagination is more important than information.
-- Albert Einstein
