first lines meme

From various people on my f-list, namely <lj user="joereaves"> , <lj user="telperion_15" , and <lj user="lukadreaming"> .  

Post the first line from your 25 most recent fanfics and try to find a pattern.

List is in order from the most recent first.  

1. Abby doesn’t like needing to be rescued.

2. Life on Earth started in the ocean.

3. Strange new world.

4. It was barely dawn, and Connor was already running for his life.

5. Abby stared at yet another anomaly that hadn’t brought Connor home.

6. Connor hated this place.

7. “Guys? Anyone at home?”

8. Ryan lay propped on his elbow, watching Connor as he slept.

9. Stephen watched Abby move restlessly around the unconscious megaloceros.

10. “Look! It’s perfectly safe.”

11. Stephen stopped and looked around at the forest.

12. It was dark, and his head was pounding.

13. Some days Nick is terrified by this job.

14. Connor doesn’t talk so much any more

15. Being speechless was a new experience for Abby.

16. Abby hated the nights like this.

17. Mark talks about his departmental meetings, and Jenny tunes him out, occasionally agreeing where appropriate.

18. Jenny isn’t Claudia.

19. Connor was running like his life depended on it.

20. Ryan was enjoying a leisurely shower when he heard someone knocking on the door.

21. Connor looked himself up and down in the mirror

22. Ryan flicked through the channels before switching the TV off in vague disgust.

23. There was bright sunshine on the other side of the anomaly, and Ryan had to squint for a moment after the darkness of the warehouse.

24. “Oh, bloody hell,” Lester muttered. 

25. Nick had thought he was doing okay.

Hmmm. Don't know about spotting any patterns, but what's worrying me about this is that it turns out I haven't written nearly as much as I thought I had recently; I had to go all the way back to March to get 25. Also, a worrying amount of these are drabbles rather than proper full length fics. Bugger, I'm vaguely depressed by this now. 

Edit: Okay, what the hell did I do wrong with the lj user link thing? Clearly today is just a day of utter fail for me. *sulks*
