First lines meme

Grabbed from several folks on my flist, including nqdonne which is where I nicked the format :)

Post the first lines from each of your 25 most recent fanfic pieces and try to find a pattern.

Well the first pattern seems rather obvious: I do appear to like starting with a person's name. I definitely try and leap straight into the head of my protagonist and launch into what is going on, rather than waffling around with anything descriptive first :). I think I like putting in a little tension as well, even if I'm about to resolve it almost immediately.

Frankly I suck at describing patterns in writing ... so, if you would be so kind, what are your opinions on my patterns? ;)
