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.

"You understand you're not a stopgap, right?" says Lupin. "We'll be reconciling with our friend eventually, I'm sure, but in the meantime, seeing as you're here and all..."

Fred thinks of Percy again, somehow able to remember that through the rubble, and shakes Lupin's hand.

Paz paints her hand gold and fits it against the silver painted onto Kat's hand.

"Perfecto," she says, examining her handiwork.

Kat blushes and laces her fingers properly with Paz's, squeezing lightly.

"I lost my whole world," she says, "and everything in it."

"Maybe it's not meant to be found," he responds, staring over the salt waves, the spray misting in his curls. "Perhaps you're meant to create one anew."

the waning of the year

[personal profile] betony 2013-03-14 01:19 am (UTC)(link)

When Miri wonders why Daine smiles less frequently as the days shorten, she shrugs and grumbles that the cold makes her bones ache more now that she's no longer a girl.

When Sarralyn and Rikash demand why Ma is always so grouchy this time of year, she tickles them until they beg for mercy and reminds them that she ought to be hibernating with the other beasts.

Numair alone never asks a thing; he already knows that the bandits of Snowsdale always attacked just before the year's first snow.

Most of them don't matter in his scheme of things. It's easy to pretend otherwise. It's not like he's going to remember them.

Those who see them are so hasty to mark their differences - Sarai with her bright, tumbling laugher, and Dove with her serious, calculating mind; Dove on a throne and Sarai a country away.

Sisters, though.

Sisters go beyond any of that.

"Come now, hiding agents in plain sight is hardly Nidie's style; there's a reason I'm the spymaster, you know," said Aly, mock-offended.
"Oh, well, I can't very well bow to your wisdom, Duani," he returned, with a grin, and clasped her hand to let her feel the gold coin there.
"Lose the bet," he said, cackling, "and you'll have to do my paperwork for a week."

Re: The LBD, Maria Lu, 3 sentence ficathon

[personal profile] pencildragon11 2013-03-13 05:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Lydia has her ways of finding things out through the gossip grapevine, but Maria has fandom friends, and after her ten o'clock class on Tuesday she finds three emails waiting for her (from her Dr. Who friend, her other Dr. Who friend, and her Harry Potter friend).

ZOMG SO AWESOME YOU MUST COME PLAY they say, and I just found it this morning and already there's zillions of comments!!

She scrolls through, curious, then squealing, then hyperventilating with glee, and taps out a comment on her way to her next class: Xover Harry Potter & Dr. Who, Amy/George, the adventures don't have to end. (Did I do that right?)

Feel free to treat that as a real prompt!

Once Upon a Time, Ruby, integrating two lives
tiny_white_hats: (Default)

[personal profile] tiny_white_hats 2013-03-15 06:20 am (UTC)(link)
Some nights, Ruby has dreams of killing Peter, of ripping him to warm, bleeding shreds with her human teeth. When she wakes up, gasping like a drowning woman, she checks her hands for blood, her teeth for fangs, before she can lie back down and try to go back to sleep, reassuring herself that she is human right now, that she is Ruby, not Red. For the rest of these nights, she lies awake wondering where Ruby ends and where Little Red Riding Hood begins (and, in the back of her mind, she wonders if she is a wolf or a woman or something else entirely) or if neither one of them begin or end at all but melt into each other like water and dirt, because she has memories she can't remember making, and the claws she left in the Enchanted Forest have started to grow back.

Once Upon a Time, Cora, painting the roses red
autumnia: Central Park (Default)

[personal profile] autumnia 2013-03-14 02:47 am (UTC)(link)
This contains spoilers for the most recent episode, "The Miller's Daughter"...

They were far too bright to be real, Cora thought as she plucked a solitary stem from the arrangement. She had seen her share of roses and none of them ever bore a hue so vivid as these, looking as if they were dipped in some magical crimson dye—perhaps they were, given the extravagance of this evening's ball.

Magically enhanced or not, the rose complemented her gown perfectly and she tucked it into her hair as if it were a ruby set into her crown of dark curls.
