Writing meme

Seeing as I've gone a bit rusty with my writing (due to the "excitement" of the last six weeks or so) and need to get back into the right frame of mind so I can finish the story I started for last year's nanowrimo, I need to start off with something small. So... I've just pinched (and adapted slightly) this meme from paperandglass.

Name three stories you think I will never, ever, ever write. In return (and if inspired), I will attempt to write a snippet of one of them.

(The original had "fics" rather than "stories", but I am useless at writing fan fiction anyway... I find it much more difficult to write other people's characters than my own).

Well that didn't take long

Computer lasted less than two days between when I got it back and its next major failure. Now the power supply appears to have blown up (no noise or smell but also no signs of life whatsoever after an instant and total shutdown).

This time I lost patience totally and as a result am working on a borrowed lap top (which also confirms that it was the computer not working and not anything in the plug board having blown). And the computer is going to go back to the shop for something like the sixth time in six months and the bastards had better not try telling me they can't find anything wrong with it this time.
