Variations have been floating around at least since 2004 (if not earlier) on LJ; as [personal profile] nextian writes in a 2010 iteration, "Hilariously, the version going around has a bit about how no one remembers the actual wording". What all the iterations do share is a 'ask me anything and I will give you an honest answer' premise.

Two example variants behind the cut )
jjhunter: Serene person of color with shaved head against abstract background half blue half brown (scientific sage)

Started by [personal profile] jjhunter here.
Comment with a fandom, any fandom. If I'm into that fandom, I'll rec you three goodies: fanfic, art, vids, meta, whatever strikes my fancy. If I'm not, I'll tell you 'Go fish!' and ask you a fandom in return.

As seen everywhere:
Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that story.
jjhunter: profile of human J.J. with goggles and a band of gears running down her face; inked in reds and browns (steampunk J.J.)

There are several versions of this floating around the internets; the version currently circulating on DW simply involves listing favorite things, as opposed to, say, favorite authors/characters. See [personal profile] matopia's entry here for an example.
Comment to this entry and I'll give you a letter. List ten things that you love that begin with that letter and then post that list on your journal.

[personal profile] jjhunter created a guess-which meme using opening lines.
Give me three first lines:
  1. The first line from one of your favorite books.

  2. The first line from something you wrote or one of your favorite fics.

  3. Gratuitous first line you just made up on the spot.
Randomly scrabble the order (or not), and then challenge your readers to guess which is which. Bonus points for identifying the sources!

[personal profile] rhi has started a neat "creative/leitmotif meme".
If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach. -- Alfred Hitchcock, 1899 - 1980

If I wrote fic/drew art/vidded/folded origami/etc today, the readers/viewers would immediately be looking for... what?
