Prompt me, please!

I was trying to think of something that would keep me writing this year without the stress or deadlines of a fest. And I remembered there were three writing memes I kept meaning to do. So I'm posting them now, and I'll be using the responses as inspiration over the course of the year (or longer, depending on how slow I turn out to be).

The Timestamp Meme. Anyone remember this one? I remember I was so ridiculously excited when lovely_slyth, fourth_rose, annafugazzi, and sansa did this. I have always been so fascinated and delighted by sequels or brief follow-up ficlets that offer a glimpse into the past, or the future, or some moment from the fic we didn't get to see, or a moment we did see, but from an alternate POV. I didn't do it myself at the time because (iirc) I'd only written ONE fic, and it would have been the height of silliness. But I've promised a bunch of people over the last year, whenever they asked me for a sequel to something, that I'd be doing this eventually, and they could post their request here and I'd totally write it. So! Most everything I've written is listed on my profile here. (There is that "Harry and Draco on a dude ranch" ficlet and also my two "Draco making terrycloth sexy" drabbles that aren't listed there--they seemed way too silly, lol. But if anyone wants links to them, I'll dig them up too.) So, yeah, you all remember how this works, right? Pick a fic, and a time in the fic's universe, and a POV if you would like, and I will write at least a hundred words (or, knowing me, quite a bit more). I promise to (eventually) write at least one for anyone who wants to request one, and at least two for anyone who's beta read for me (because I seem to remember promising that too, haha). I might write more if you come up with another request I just can't resist, but no promises there.

The Blogging Meme This one's very simple. Name a topic, any topic, and I will blog about it. (Again, eventually.)

The "If You Had Me At Gunpoint" Meme This one's mainly just for my own curiosity--I mean, I don't promise to write anything requested here. But hey, you never know, I might! Especially if your birthday is coming up and I miraculously find myself with some free time or something. So, if you could force me to write anything--absolutely anything at all--what would it be?
