Wow, I haven't written fic since January...

Anyhow, I was driving across Washington State today, and I had an idea for a fic based on a song from The Magnetic Fields album 69 Love Songs. And then I thought, maybe other people might be inspired by this, and wouldn't that make a good fic challenge?

So here it is. There are, as the title suggests, 69 songs on this album, all based on the theme of love. Some of them are sweet. Some of them are sad. Some of them are silly. I'm posting here the titles of the songs; the lyrics to all of them are available here. Feel free to use the title or the lyrics or even just the sound of the song if you know it as inspiration. (Most, if not all, of the songs are likely available in some form on YouTube...)

All pairings and fandoms are accepted. Just post a link to your finished fic once you're done along with the song it was inspired by. Obviously the goal is to have at least one fic for each song, but if you're inspired by a song someone has already written for, go for it! The more, the merrier, as they say.
