WIP Sentences meme

I consider myself tagged by izhilzha . Instructions: post one sentence from all of your WIPs without any context or further explanation. (I'm assuming this is only for fandoms I'm still active in? And that WIP covers anything I might conceivably post someday even if it's only a page or so right now?)

So here we go! I'm going to add the twist of two points each for guessing the fandom, two more for the speaker or POV:

  • "I'm here," he said again, fighting to keep his voice level. "You said you'd let him go."
  • "Fortunately, the Central Valley is about as topographically complex as a tabletop, so that eliminates the need for a submodel."
  • If it was only a matter of willpower, he knew they'd be fine.
  • He'd known this was going to come to a head at some point, but he hadn't expected to be doing seventy-five down the San Bernardino Freeway while he hashed out months of misunderstanding and hurt with the guy who had been his best friend.
  • Then, as the road started a broad curve to the left with nothing but empty air to their right, he reached down again for his leg.
  • He stumbled forward, and the hiss of something passing over his head confused him until he saw a chip of marble fly off the wall in front of him.
  • "Sheryl Crow obviously never tried to drive through the Westside on a Friday afternoon, or she wouldn't have put 'fun' and 'Santa Monica Boulevard' in the same sentence."
ETA: I need to start writing in a fandom with some lead female characters.  This is ridiculous.

AHA. This is funny because it is soooo true. (And this is Numb3rs, I am assuming.)

There are some things I don't miss about L.A. Traffic would be at the top of the list. And yes, that's NUMB3RS, a little bit of Megan-snark. Man, I miss her!

Oh, where'd you get that icon or the pic for it? I haven't managed to find N3 location shooting (though I live up by Pasadena, so that kind of makes sense) and the sign made me squee. *g*

Green Street at Euclid, the backside of Paseo Colorado. It was a day they were shooting at the Masonic Temple.

I haven't managed to find N3 location shooting

The city of Pasadena keeps a list on their website of what's filming where and when for the next couple of weeks. It's how I ended up walking right past Dylan Bruno on the sidewalk outside Caltech. *swoon*

(though I live up by Pasadena, so that kind of makes sense)

OMG, are you kidding me? *headdesk* Did you know I used to live in Pasadena? And that this makes you the third person I've met online who I didn't know lived within a few miles of me until after I left the state? *grumble*
