3 Sentence Ficathon


3 Sentence Ficathon Banner

EDIT!  THIS POST IS NOW CLOSED TO NEW PROMPTS,  PLEASE POST NEW PROMPTS
HERE!

CaramelSilver isn’t running the awesome 3 sentence ficathon this year, but she said I could do it in her place!!  (Banner courtesy of CaramelSilver and thanks so much!)

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?
You post prompts!  When posting a prompt please format it this way:

fandom, character/pairing, 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. 

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

Can anyone play?
Yes!  Please pimp this to your flist, I'd like as many as possible to come and participate!

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). 

Here's a link for spreading the word to all your friends and comms (thanks [personal profile] snacky !)




How long can it go? 
CaramelSilver kept the 2011 3 Sentence Ficathon up for a month.  I'd suggest closing it on Sunday, April 7, 2013.  How does that sound? (edit:  If we reach 5,000 comments sooner, I'll start a new one).

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

Gosh who are all these people writing such great prompts and fills?
Good question!  Come to the friending meme and introduce yourself if you like.

As  [personal profile] lady_songsmith explains, for the 2011 3 Sentence Ficathon, [livejournal.com profile] grim_lupine created a delicious account to archive the 3 Sentence Ficathon.   [personal profile] lady_songsmith has reactivated the archive on delicious for this challenge, so, here is the account (nothing current added yet, though): https://previous.delicious.com/3sentence She asks that if anyone would be willing to help knock down the backlog of the prolific-ness thus far, let her know!!  (She adds:  I know folks are kinda down on delicious with the changes, but, hey, it's an archive already set up with useful tags!)

On the subject of archiving, I really encourage people to collect and post their fills elsewhere.  That way, we can find your work more easily again, redundancy is always good and it's really useful for future remixes and other challenges and gift exchanges you might participate in. I'll start a linking post so that if you do collect all your fills and post them on your own blog or an archive like AO3, you can give give us the link in comments.

Joan is the only person in the vet's office with a tortoise, and she's keenly aware of this; the dogs keep sniffing at the box as if they're expecting turtle soup tonight.

She's not sure when taking care of the turtle became part of her job, but Sherlock's been pacing the living room for hours and she was almost glad for the excuse to get out for a little while and escape his irritated mumbling; he'll have solved the case by the time they get back, she's sure.

Joan reaches into the box and pets Clyde's smooth shell, smiling a little; at least he's a manageable charge.

That's totally what's happening. Sherlock just gives him bits of his own food, and turtles shouldn't eat cereal. :)

No More Ever I Spoke (Arwen/Aragorn)

[personal profile] vialethe 2013-03-12 03:45 am (UTC)(link)
She thinks of returning, once he's dead and gone and her life turns blank, leeched of color and joy. She thinks of sitting in the halls of her father's house until they grow bare and empty as her heart, dusty and disused, with only the echoes of love and memory to sustain her, until she is as one of the statues in the gardens, an object of curiosity, of a past long forgotten by all who remain.

In the end she rejects this, and travels forward rather than back; she is yet made of softer things than stone, and he awaits her still, beyond the endless shores of the world.

Thanks! Arwen after Aragorn's death has always been the part of their story that stuck out most to me - how she had been so happy and didn't regret her choice, but was still frightened and alone at the end, the poor dear.

She lingers long after so many others pass. Days slide into years which slide into centuries, and she is alone. She travels the world over the millenia, but she always returns to Rivendell, to visit the bones of her old home.

[personal profile] autumnia 2013-03-12 10:37 pm (UTC)(link)
With his teeth chattering endlessly against the biting cold and rain, Eustace wrapped his thin, wet arms around his thoroughly drenched body.

"I thought you said you could tell where we are by looking at the stars!" he hissed, wondering why he hadn't listened to the weather reports on the wireless before agreeing to set out on this adventure with her.

"I can," Jill whispered, her voice equally furious as his as she stomped her feet to keep warm, "but I meant Narnian stars, not those of England!"

Re: Their Turn (Eustace & Jill)

[personal profile] wingedflight 2013-03-15 07:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Ha, I automatically thought SCAU because I write it all the time but YES to LB AU because there is nothing better than the world not ending.

And I'm afraid I can't quite remember but weren't you writing a bit of an LB AU? Or talking about one, at least?
snacky: (Default)

Re: Their Turn (Eustace & Jill)

[personal profile] snacky 2013-03-15 07:33 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes! I am intrigued by the idea of the world not ending, but Jill and Eustace not going back, and they can't figure out why, exactly. And Aslan is nowhere to be found and did Tash kill him or something and it's a bit of a mystery.

And yes, I was! Although not this same idea. It was an LB AU where Jill and Eustace used the rings to get to Narnia, and saved Narnia and Tirian, and then Aslan sent them home, where they found out that Susan was killed in a trainwreck. And she ended up in Narnia too.
wingedflight: (Default)

Re: Their Turn (Eustace & Jill)

[personal profile] wingedflight 2013-03-15 07:43 pm (UTC)(link)
Wow, I love the idea that not only are they staying for no apparent reason, but Aslan is nowhere to be found. Because that would suck.(Actually, loving this idea more the more I think of it!)

And yes, now that you describe it, I do sort of remember you talking about this other AU idea now. I like the take that Susan is the only one killed - an interesting inversion.

“I was hoping it would be bigger on the inside,” Amy says, still gripping Rory’s hand painfully tight and staring inside the blue box that is just a box with barely enough room for one person inside, standing in a corner off the stage.

“It’s just a prop; but in England I have a wardrobe that was once bigger on the inside,” Susan replies, on her way to her dressing room, but it seems the older couple are not really listening.

Rory moves to put his arm around Amy’s shoulders and both of them stand, lost in memories; Susan looks at them and wonders whether her own eyes ever hold that extraordinary combination of joy and regret.

Fringe, Astrid, dry-cleaning bills

Walter never noticed that she was the one who took his suits to the dry-cleaners whenever he spilled some scientific concoction or soft drink (which was often). After Peter returns, he pulls her aside with a thank you and the question of financial compensation.

"Oh, I write them off as a business expense," Astrid explains with a wink.

[personal profile] lbilover 2013-03-13 02:07 am (UTC)(link)
Whatever the bill for the dry-cleaning, Astrid knows it's cheap at the price, considering what's being removed from Walter's clothes. But they don't ask and she never tells. It remains her little secret.

You're way ahead of me then. I'm only halfway through season 4. Love it so much. It's one of the few shows in which I like everybody in it, even the alternate characters.

That time when Olivia found out that Peter didn't know that alt!Olivia wasn't really her ( and he should! He should! ). I'd love to read about her thoughts on that.

Or you can just expand on this drabble on Astrid and Walter. Anything really, and any characters.

He’s piano-player at a club she frequents, and her friends tease her about him; that strange, sad man who wears a hat indoors, whose music makes images in her head, of things lost, washed away by time.

After his shift ends, she asks for cigarette and he fumbles in the dark for a match -- he wears gloves indoors too, she wonders if he is always very cold -- and she looks up to thank him and catches the glint of starlight in his eyes.

It is familiar, closer to home than anything she's seen for so long that she is strangely disarmed, and she sucks in the smoke and says, once I had a kingdom to rule -- he smiles and nods.

There are nights when sleep doesn't come, when Susan tosses and turns, thinking of her lost family, of their lost kingdom, of all the losses that she thinks — maybe — she could have prevented, if only she had … been different, been more faithful, believed harder and deeper and longer. She gives up on sleep and drinks the strong liquor Maglor brings her, and they drink and talk throughout the night.

Maglor understands "if only" better than perhaps anyone else in this world. He doesn't offer advice or suggestions — she supposes he's learned that's never as helpful as he intends — but he holds her hands in his and shares the drink and listens to her talk, and while Susan wishes for more, she decides that for now, it is enough.

Jon's duty took him so far away from her - from both of his little sisters- one glad of his absence and the other missing him sorely.

Arya stares without seeing at the mirror, and misses Jon, and misses Bran, and makes up her mind.

She picks up her Needle (in her chamber, Sansa lifts her needle to embellish a shroud) and leaves the door swinging silent in the empty hallway.

Susan was Peter's spymaster, and occasionally Peter's spy; it never seemed to occur to anyone that the lovely young woman to whom they were spilling their secrets (all unknowing) might be the elder queen of Narnia.

Susan can't be queen of England, but she means to get as close as she can to what she once had, and no one dreams that the lovely young woman to whom they're spilling their secrets (all unknowing) might be a spy for the king of England.

No one looks past the silk-gloved hand and the silken black hair to see the spine of steel, the knives in each boot, the legs that once kicked in an assassin's head.

Never Was the Fantasy (Mary/Matthew)

[personal profile] vialethe 2013-03-12 05:41 am (UTC)(link)
If Sybil is the summer – bright and warm, open and inviting – and Edith autumn – flashes of brilliance, but mostly quite dreary – Mary thinks she herself must surely be the winter, cold and still and bleak, dead and frozen before her time. She sees the chill inside her reflected from all around, from Patrick who she never gave a thought to, from her father to whom she is almost, but not quite, perfect, from all those who look at her and see only the bite of frost, until she believes it is all she is, that she can never thaw.

She's wrong, in the end; Matthew, it turns out, is the spring.

There were many things Peter wanted to do when he stepped into the hallowed halls of Cair Paravel—washing away the blood and grime of the Northern campaign; reading and understanding the many messages (Rabadash an Ass! Prince Cor found!) Lucy and Edmund had sent ahead of their departure from Anvard; dropping flat on his back and ruining the silken sheets of the bed that awaited him in his chambers—but his heart led him straight to the doors of his sister's apartments.

"Susan," he called out softly as the Guard on duty bowed and retreated to allow him entrance to the Queen's rooms, "I'm coming—"

He never finished his sentence for the doors suddenly swung open and his tall, dark-haired sister flung herself into his arms, crying tears of joy, sadness and relief.

Narnia/Discworld, Susan Pevensie and Susan Sto Helit, we are justice and we are monsters both
gehayi: (sue hunter susan (alpheratz))

[personal profile] gehayi 2013-03-12 07:53 pm (UTC)(link)
When they first see one another in Biers, where the monsters go to drink, Susan Pevensie sees a deep blue glow in the eyes of the other and the shadow of a weapon--a sword? a scythe?--forming in her hands. And, as a bow and quiver flicker in and out of existence next to a barstool, Susan Sto Helit sees a crown shimmering about the first Susan's brow and a look in her eyes that most would call wise or gentle or even sad, but that Susan Sto Helit knows comes from responsibility shouldered all too early, losses that draw blood, even now, and choices that she never should have had to make.

The Susan who is not quite Death (at least not when her grandfather is on duty) brushes past the woman who is not precisely a queen--not now and certainly not on the Disc--and says in the Voice, "THERE'S NO JUSTICE"; she's gratified when the other Susan looks up at her in what seems to be recognition, solemnly says, "No, there's just us," and pulls out a chair for her.

The fall of Earth was relayed out past the Sol system through tweets, the only information bursts small enough to escape the communications blackout yet large enough to still tell a coherent story. Investigative journalist Emily Wong had 140 characters per message and a hastily-compiled hashtag, and she made the most of it - somebody had to write the epitaph of a city, of a planet, of a civilization, and so it may as well be her.

"The biggest exposé I've ever written," she thought as her blood-slicked hands curved around the steering wheel of the skyvan for the last time, slipped, struggled once more to get a grip, "I hope nobody skips right to the end of this one."

After they return from Narnia the second time, Susan's heart is filled with memories of Narnia--of all of their friends who must have suffered so cruelly when the four of them vanished from Narnia, of the dwarves and naiads and fauns and Talking Beasts who were forced to live in hiding under the Telmarines, and of all the things she was trained to do as Queen (and longs to do now) to heal a thousand years of pain.

It would be all too easy to let those memories fill her mind and heart--but focusing on the memories of a land from which she has been exiled twice could allow Narnia to become more real than England, their long-vanished friends more real than their parents, their wars with the White Witch and with Calormen more important than battles with evil or arrogant fools that still need to be fought. If what most people would call the real world is the only world she is to know from now on, she will embrace it; to cling to what she cannot have would lead to obsession, perhaps even madness, and a queen does not behave so.

For a long time after they're gone--and she's all alone--she doesn't belong anywhere to anyone or anything. She'd spent so many years giving herself to every passing, fleeting fancy and fad as if this were the last moment before the world went away, when she knew in her buried heart that truly this was a world of shadows and the real world waited elsewhere.

But alone now--all alone now--she goes gathering up what she's given away here and left behind there, until, finally, she's all gathered up again--vivid and bright and shining in her hands like nothing else in this world of shadows can. And when she embraces it, brings it closes, her missing self, she can see them; and knows she will see them again.

Narnia, anyone, water tastes sweet at the end of the world

(Anonymous) 2013-03-12 09:37 am (UTC)(link)
Daughterly duty kept her there, and it was right that she stayed, and it was right that she left when she did, to take up her new wifely, queenly duties. She does not resent it, not really, not bitterly.

Nevertheless, the question nags at her, especially when she sees how lightly her shining husband esteems his great privilege: why, when she lived so close, all her life, did she never venture to find and taste those strong, sweet waters for herself?

Water beads on whiskers, that was what he would always remember- drops on his whiskers, and the sweet taste of the water.

He had tasted the green and thriving rivers of Narnia, and tasted once the salten tang of the Sea, before he drank of the sweet water and was borne on its back to the country where a Mouse need not die.

Still he thought of them, and sometimes he yet tasted the salty-sweet of a Mouse's tears.

Living as she has all her life, bathed in the strong sweet water of the Eastern Sea, she never knows the taste of salt—not when the Oracle's word comes that one of the maidens must throw herself into the swift sea-stream; not when she wraps her arms around her mother and then her father, in a sea-serpent's grip of farewell; not even when she looks back one last time and sees her flock of fish still nibbling unawares on the weed. Eyes wide open, she lets go—swept away by the current, faster and faster, until her unadorned old-ivory body tingles with a piercing joy so strong she thinks it cannot be borne, and she is lifted up, over, hanging a moment on the rim of the world.

Down, down, down in a rushing thundering roaring cataract she falls—then she is rising from a pool, clothed in white, and the dreadful face of the Lion is there, terrifyingly fierce and ineffably beautiful as he invites her further up and further in; she draws a breath of sweet, fresh air and tastes for the first time the salt of tears.

As Sherlock said the word, sand, with obvious glee in his voice, John continued to stare at him with that confused look which seemed to greet most of the obvious solutions with which he presented people.
"All you have to do, in order to solve this, is to ask yourself, 'Where can I play beach volleyball in London?'" Sherlock said with annoyance. "As even the most dull-witted Londoner can attest, there aren't *that* many locations!"

His muscles are shivering because of the position he is crouched in, exhaustion slowly making them stiff, but Sherlock ... has been insistent that he doesn't move, doesn't draw attention to himself.

He can hear Sherlock's voice, his tone cocky, but it is impossible to make out individual words over the distance.

Suddenly, Sherlock's body whips backwards, and John throws any caution into the wind, uncoiling in a split-second and running towards Sherlock before his mind even has time to register what has happened.

...
Exactly three sentences? sorry, this is my first fill ... :)
