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.

"Unhand me, sir," Beatrice demands, wriggling in Benedick's grip like a fish on the line. The sight of Claudio lying on the ground, his lip split by the force of her blow, is satisfying indeed, but not enough, not when Hero still turns her face from them both and looks to the shadows. "My work here is yet unfinished."

"And then she says--"

"Yankee idiot, I am a Scotsman!" finishes Jamie gleefully, in an exaggerated version of his own Scottish brogue, and they're laughing, they're laughing together, reminiscing about Julie as if nothing's wrong, but suddenly and abruptly Maddie can't take it anymore and she's just sobbing instead.

"Oh, Kittyhawk," says Jamie sadly, and puts his arm around her shoulders, and they sit there in silence, Julie's laughter ringing in the air around them.

Only three sentences if you broaden the definition of sentence unreasonably, but oh well

She has many long hours to think about it, in those days and weeks of captivity. She's played with her identities for so long, that she has lost track of which is her parents' daughter, which is brothers' sister, which is the schoolgirl, which is the spy, which is the coward, which is the hero, which is the traitor. But she thinks of Maddie as she writes, and she knows, when they are reunited, that Maddie will recognize her, whoever she is, that Maddie will know her, and that Maddie always did.

"I've told you to let the slaves do that," Sheftu says, for the dozenth time (that week).

"They have enough work as it is," Mara replies, whisking the tray off to the kitchen.

He shakes his head, but then, it wasn't her exotic beauty that made him fall in love with her.

Plead the Fifth

[identity profile] sunnymcgee.livejournal.com 2013-04-06 06:16 am (UTC)(link)
The open and honest looks the trio had donned were as good as a signed confession that they were up to their eyeballs in something they shouldn’t; not to mention the incriminating evidence peeking out from under the invisibility cloak.

"I know nothing, saw nothing, and as far as Mrs. Weasley is concerned, I was never here” Sirius said spinning back the way he came. Nearly inaudible, a whisper stayed behind: “you are - truly your father's son..."

Rose wants to believe it is just a joke and nothing is meant by it but she knows better. Her father has a point to prove to everyone because he wants to show them that the Weasley family is back on top. He’s becoming no better than the supremacists he hates.

Harry Potter, Any, "And the Alice Longbottom Memorial Prize for most remarkable first-year Auror goes to--"

(Anonymous) 2013-03-14 02:12 am (UTC)(link)
After the ceremony, Neville takes the trophy – it wasn’t that fancy, just a simply plaque – to St. Mungo’s; Gran offers to go with him, but all his life, he’d (with varying degree of reluctance) always gone to St. Mungo’s with Gran, never alone. Today, he wants to go alone; he needs to go alone, to show them – her, especially – how much he’d grown.

“You know, Mum, all my life they’ve compared me to Dad, and when I succeed they tell me I’m my father’s son and how Dad would be proud of me, but I hope that maybe, just maybe, from now on they’ll start to see you more in me than just in my face.”

[personal profile] pretty_panther 2013-03-13 11:05 pm (UTC)(link)
The Greeks claim victory but Andromache passionately feels they failed to win the war. They win because they survive when the Greeks would have them eradicated from the earth. Cassandra helps her escape with some of the children and that is how she knows that the Trojans are truly the ones to win, because sons will survive to avenge their fathers.

He spent a lot of time and energy in chasing the ghosts of his wife's long-gone killer, thinking it was what she would want, for him and Nanako to get justice on behalf of their family. Now, sitting and drinking coffee with his daughter and his nephew, laughing like he hadn't in a long time, he thinks that maybe, just maybe, she would have wanted this instead. And he's starting to be okay with that.

Tsuritama, Akira, all grown up

(Anonymous) 2013-03-14 06:31 am (UTC)(link)
They meet up in Florida, a couple days of bass fishing off Natsuki's boat while Akira takes a break from investigating some Miami seafood diner, an apparently suspicious establishment that Akira (dramatically pushing on his sunglasses for the punchline) honest to goodness actually describes as fishy.

And Natsuki watches, speechless, as Tapioca follows up the line with a long quack, all of it natural yet curiously practiced — and Natsuki can't help thinking back to the Akira who solemnly entered a high school class under the guise of student, the Akira who disliked puns and jokes and fun in general or at least thought he should, though Natsuki was never much convinced.

“Get off my boat, that was terrible,” Natsuki says in the post-pun silence, and after a moment Akira gives a little smile and they both burst into laughter.

They named her peace-weaver, and so she is. She sits in the hall and helps allot gold and brews mead and at night tells her husband with her body how much she desires him, and for him to keep the alliance. But sometimes, she takes his spear from the wall and tests the strength of her arm, and thinks what else she could have been.

"Even knowing what you know," I said through my teeth as he lowered his laughing mouth to mine.
