First Lines Meme

Snagged from a gazillion people, among them:

 

only_more_love , bertie456 , wimseynotes 
 

 
 

I'm embarrassed there aren't more first lines but I've been sadly fic-deficient lately.  Random notes on my hard drive didn't help with this unfortunately.  But it was fun to do anyway. :)

1.  "So she was pissed you didn't stop Zack from going to Iraq?" (The Center Will Hold)

2.  The sun was pounding into her head with the force of a jackhammer. (Breath)

3. 'They appear to be in good moods this morning' (Circle of Trust)

4. Letting the too hot water pound his back, Seeley Booth stretched his muscles under the spray and muttered a curse. (Home for Me)



Okay, so there were only a measly four.  Not enough to really determine a pattern, but I think the tone of each first line fit with the overall theme of  the story. 

**Fingers crossed this season brings inspiration.**

Hey, I didn't make the 20 either, if it makes you feel better! But as far as those four go...#4 = YUM! :)

Ah yes ... number 4. I had almost forgotten how hot he was in that opening scene. Another good reason to revisit old fics, right?

They all make me want to read more, so they do their job very well as first lines! :)

Well - let's see. For patterns I notice a bit of an obsession (c'mon - 50%!) with POUNDING.

Other than that - yeah, pretty small sample LOL

I hope you get some inspiration from the new season (which I will miss the beginning of, as we have moved and have not yet hooked up our tv), but remember quality counts more than quantity, and your quality is top-grade!

Hmmm... yes ... "pounding"... I do see a bit of obsession. Booth-centric obsessions don't count against us right? Yes?
