Three Sentence Ficathon

The 2015 Three Sentence Ficathon is now CLOSED, with over 4,100 prompts, fills, and comments.  It's been a great exchange and thank you so much for the whacky crackfic, the moving short fic, and the amazing cross-overs.  You all are great.  I won't freeze this -- go ahead and continue to fill any prompts that interest you and comment on fills made.  I just ask that there not be any more NEW prompts. 

We'll be back next year.  Check out the friending meme and friend away and if you post your works on AO3, be sure to use the 3 sentence ficathon tags.

Thank you again, so much!


It's been 2 years, so why not?!!
 



 

Caramelsilver ran one in December on Live Journal but I was too busy to play.  There are lots of outstanding prompts over there, so do go and check it out!!  Here's the link!  I did one in early spring 2 years ago here on Dreamwidth, and with Yuletide, Fandomstocking, and Festivids over, I thought I'd run a new one!!  Thanks so much  to [personal profile] snacky and Saoirse7 for the nudge and to [personal profile] st_aurafina for making the swell banner and icon!

What is the 3 Sentence Ficathon?
This is a challenge where you answer a prompt with a fic consisting of only three sentences. It's open to all fandoms and you can post and answer as many prompts as you like, as many times as you want.

What do I do first?
You post prompts!  When posting a prompt please format it this way:

fandom, character(s), prompt word/sentence.

Only one prompt per comment please.

What else?
You answer other posters' prompts in three sentences (or more if you can't stop yourself) and fill as many prompts as you want, as many times as you wish.  If you see that a prompt you loved has already been filled, go ahead and fill it again!  Multiple fills of the same prompt allowed and even encouraged!

But I'm not a member of Dreamwidth
No problem.  You can comment anonymously or through open ID

Can anyone play?
Yes!  Please signal boost this to your flist, followers, and any other places you frequent.  Come one, come all! 
I'm cross-posting to LJ but we will keep all prompts and fills here, so they are in one awesome place (and with less spam).  Please, post this anywhere and everywhere.  The more people who come and play, the better!

[And I'll try to put an embed code in so you can spread the word.  I've tried multiple times and failed so far
[personal profile] snacky  !


 

How long will it go? 
I'm closing it on Sunday, March 8, 2015.   (Last time, we reached 5,000 comments and I had to start a new one before the ficathon concluded.  If that happens, I'll start a new post).

Are there any rules about cross-posting?
Nope, you can post wherever you want, whenever you want.  A lot of folks collected their responses together and posted them on AO3 under the 3 sentence fiction tag.  3SFs are a terrific prompt for remixes.


Gosh, there are some cool people over here.  How do I introduce myself?
Through the friending meme right here.



And here, have some icons!

She puts on the finishing touches of Sweet Dreams, then sashays out into full view of her target, giving him a sultry smile. Hopefully this one would hold out long enough for her to get some useful information out of him. It really was maddening how many men seemed to lose all semblance of reason at the sight of red lipstick and some fancy heels.

Occasionally...

[personal profile] wistfulmemory 2015-02-14 03:59 am (UTC)(link)
Occasionally Cassandra thinks about the alternate realities Colonel Baird told them about. Occasionally Cassandra pulls out the bit of magic she managed to save and examines it and theorizes all of the possibilities that would develop with her use of Mathmagic. Occasionally Cassandra sighs and decides the world is not quite ready for all of those possibilities, but maybe someday it will be…

Joan Watson was a sensible woman who did not believe in ghosts, or fairies, or dragons. So when she woke up one morning to see a small, scaly creature with a long tail digging its claws deeply into her headboard, she didn't pause to wonder if it had wandered in from some world not too far off from theirs.

"SHERLOCK!" she shouted; the creature chirruped at her, but the house was suspiciously silent, so she pulled herself from her bed to find out what it was, exactly, he'd gotten them into this time.

He could see the long muscled arm where it stretched out of a hole in the net, a bottle of brandy dangling loosely from the pale fingertip that was jammed into it in place of a cork, two faces and two sets of eyes below it, upside-down in two ruddy faces and, whatever had brought his two friends to this pass, it seemed to have been clothing optional.

"Porthos," Athos grinned, waggling the bottle in greeting while Aramis simply closed his eyes.

"How did – no, don't tell me," Porthos said, as he stepped forward and drew his knife to set them free.

I desperately want to see this one answered and can't think of any properly mournful lines myself.
So let me just say, for the time being, how brilliant the prompt itself is.

(No Othello present in this, I'm afraid - I'd written it before I looked properly at the prompt - sorry! But with any luck someone else will come to give you a two-person scene as well. :) )

Iago:
So - words, mere prattle, without practise, won
for Cassio the place my sword-work could not win -
And words won for the Moor the right to plough
untramelled in white Desdemona's field.
Now let Venetians all put up their swords -
this is the new and subtle Moorish art
to suck away our fortunes by their words.
Now let rust take my sword, for now my mouth
will learn this way, to mouth soft words until
the wounds gape bloody mouths on Moorish flesh.

"Who says girls aren't as good as boys?" Lucy demands, pride smarting as she gazes into the mirror.

Susan stands behind her, her hands gentle as she braids Lucy's hair, and her voice is quiet and resigned when she answers, "Everyone here, I'm afraid."

Lucy meets her sister's eyes in the mirror -- she knows Susan is telling the truth, and this is one more reason England isn't as good as Narnia.

She knew things would be difficult, but never imagined how hard everyday life would be without Polly or Mr. Dunworthy: the rationing, the bombs, the notes from irate schoolmistresses, and the bellowed demands Sir Godfrey uses to mask his inward pain. She waits fretfully for Reverend Goode's letters and constantly scans her surroundings for Colin, wishing she'd had the sense to ask him when and where they'll meet again. Pining for the loss of Mike, Polly, and Mr. Dunworthy, she looks for hope and finds it in an unlikely object: the green coat that is now a part of their past and her future.

His last birthday present is barely out of the box when Oliver tucks it under his arm and races upstairs. The rest of the of the family follow him, wondering to each other what he's up to now, but Rush nudges Randy, and motions for her to join him outside.

They get out there just in time to look up and see Oliver climbing out of the north window of the cupola (over Cuffy's vociferous protests), telescope clutched tightly in his hand, and announcing loudly, "Astronomy is going to be my next phase!"

Doug comes home after a long, quiet day at work to see Jack attempting to watch the local news while a stack of essays sit untouched next to him. Upon seeing Doug, Jack immediately brightens up and pats empty space on the other side. There's little to say regarding how the day went but the silence is a lot more comfortable here.

"I dreamed of her last night," Gabriel says, staring into his glass with an expression so solemn and intense that Fred finds it impossible not to let Gabriel's misery tug at his heartstrings.

It doesn't matter that he knows it's a calculated move, that this is Gabriel at his finest (his worst, really), weaving his power of manipulation with far more skill than he ever weaved a brush or a pen. Fred knowingly lets himself be lured into the trap once again: Gabriel demands to be comforted, so that's what Fred will offer, and he'll let Gabriel's pain drown out his own.

Tricking the Tricksters

[personal profile] wistfulmemory 2015-02-14 04:39 am (UTC)(link)
After the third Trickster had wreaked enough havoc to last them all multiple lifetimes, Ezekiel started wondering about the amount of attention the group seemed to be receiving from these crafty beings.

After the seventh Trickster had caused them to swap bodies (until Jenkins had found the reversal spell four days later), Ezekiel concluded that he really wasn’t a fan of this type of chaos (unless, of course, he was the one initiating it).

After the twelfth Trickster’s prank had (unintentionally) injured Cassandra, Ezekiel decided it was time to show the Tricksters who they were truly dealing with.

It's impossible to tell if Bellatrix is laughing or if she's screaming. She stands in a black dress soaked with red, her wild hair is slicked down to her scalp with red, and her pale skin is streaked with red, red, red. She tilts her head back, mouth open and teeth bared in a savage grimace, and her laughing/screaming exultation reaches for the skull in the clouds.

Warning: Character Death. Feel free to ignore if you don't like those.

"Daddy Dyson knows and he's not here growling at me, it truly must be the end of days or a harbinger of the apocalypse."

Mark shakes his head and applies more pressure to the wound in Vex's stomach, "it's not the end and you need to hold on for Bo or my dad or Lauren - can't have me being traumatised by you dying on our first date and why the fuck is nobody here to help."

Vex winces and tries to smile at Mark as though the kid's hands aren't already stained and tacky with his blood because Vex had spotted their attacker too late to mesmer her, "it's okay, kid, had to go sometime and if it's in the arms of a pretty bloke then all the better but..."

She likes them like this - likes to see Howard's lazy smirk and easy drawl recede into broken gasps and shudders of pleasure that twist his face into something real, something solid. She likes to sit, heels politely tucked under her chair, hair done perfectly, skirt and blouse only faintly sticking to her arms and thighs as her own arousal makes her sweat. Jarvis follows her directions beautifully, and she could watch her two boys all night.

Maseo's face is lit by flickering flames as he opens up about leaving his family for their own safety and the things he's had to do for the League. The same flickering light allows Oliver to talk about his own losses and the blame that it his burden without being subject to scrutiny - the shadows allowing each of them unburden themselves. As their voices grow hoarse and the flames die down, their shelter is lit only by embers and it is in that light that Oliver makes a move nervously offering himself to the man who saved him.

Jack had wondered what it was about the women he was attracted to; his relationships with both Amanda and Emily were based on lies; Kate was also not who she claimed to be; and Margaux, well, the final nail in that coffin had been her betrayal of Nolan.

He now understood that the issue was that it was Nolan he was meant to be with, not a woman at all.

With Nolan, for the first time, Jack has a relationship where he and his partner can both be honest with themselves, and be happy.
