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

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!

Title: Rising Star
Notes: bit longer. The pairing in Garcia's fanwork could be Hotch/any, I've deliberately left it vague.


Aaron clicked on the new email from Garcia and was suprised that it had no text and only a video attachment. He hovered his mouse on the link as he suspected it had nothing to do with the case but he clicked play out of curiosity. By the end of the three-minute vid, he pinched the bridge of his nose and waited for the frantic appearance of BAU's new aspiring director.

She didn't disappoint. "Oh sir, I'm so, so sorry. I-- I didn't mean to send-- I came here personally to apologise, I'm so sorry--"

Aaron held up his hand. "Garcia, it's okay, as long as you fix it."

"Yes sir, right away." But before Garcia could leave, Aaron called her back.

"Don't you want my assessment? I'm required to review your performance." He was only teasing her but didn't crack a smile to keep her on her toes.

"Uh, sir, maybe this one time--" Garcia said but Aaron continued.

"I think the video was edgy, visceral without being gratuitious and true to character. The song added to the tone and mood too. Good job." He was amused to see Garcia gaping at him but he only pointed at the door and said, "You may go now."

"Yes sir..." Garcia shut the door behind her.

Aaron finally smiled and wondered if he wanted to know where his agent's preoccupation with his sex life came from.
