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.

'I reckon this bitch pup might do well for your kiddies,' said Farmer Maggot, and handed Sam a squirming bundle of black and white.

Sam took the tiny descendent of the fearsome Grip, Wolf and Fang; she enthusiastically licked his chin and then snuggled against chest. Aye, thought Sam, it definitely was time to let bygones be bygones.

It had been easy to love Gale. Perhaps that was part of the problem because it appeared that he'd never really loved her even if it had always felt like what was coming back to her was love. "Something new," she whispered to herself as she took Peeta's hand and let him lead her toward this new life she'd never let herself imagine.

There's Something Believing

[personal profile] vialethe 2013-03-15 07:08 am (UTC)(link)
He's still pretty sure it has something to do with little hats.

But as he stares at the television, watching silent, still pictures of a family he's known for half a dozen years now, and the two incredible tiny beings lying before him that he helped create, he can't help feeling an overwhelming tide of emotion for them, even though he's only known them a scant half dozen hours.

Andi said he's too sad, and maybe he is, but not right now – now he's loving, and protective, and so very filled with rage – not on behalf of the President, but on behalf of another father – that the pictures on tv and his babies blur in front of his eyes into one.

Death is her gift because it means she doesn’t need to answer the questions she has no answers for. No ‘why’ can justify the death she has led across the seas and into the sands. So few are left alive to listen regardless.

Sometimes he'll take out what passes for a chessboard and fold it over in his enormous paws. He'll think of gambits, wonder if maybe there's a balance to life, whether sacrifices can only get you so far.

Then he folds it in impossible dimensions and burrows through before deciding that this is just as fun.

(You've Got to) Carry That Weight

[personal profile] tiny_white_hats 2013-03-15 02:31 pm (UTC)(link)
Edmund tries (oh, how he tries), but he feels eternally like Sisyphus, pushing the same damn boulder uphill forever, never stopping and never truly making any headway. And he's been trying so hard to right his greatest, darkest wrong, trying to make up for one truly horrific lapse in judgement (a child's selfish, terrible choice), with years of good deeds, he's been trying to teach his kingdom that his is not a bad man, that he has fallen but once, pulled low by the mingled tastes of Turkish Delight and of glorious, rebellious freedom. But no matter how deeply Edmund tries to bury memories of his involvement with the White Witch, they still rise to the surface like corpses and he, and every creature within his country's borders, watches the youngest king closely, just waiting to see if he'll fall once more.

"Stay on your present course," Felicity cautioned as she watched the blinking light on her screen, "or you're going to find yourself in a heap of trouble."

"You'll come find me if I did."

Over the static of the headset, she could be sure if Helena had asked a question of her lover or made a statement but it was truth, either way.

They've been traveling quiet and rough, as they move through the Western Wild. Without his crown or Rhindon on his belt, and with three weeks growth of beard, and covered by a heavy layer of dirt and dust, Peter can hardly be recognized as the High King of Narnia.

But when the bandit troup attacks them, it only takes Peter moments before he emerges triumphant, even with a second-hand sword and a small knife his only weapons, and Edmund grins at his brother, and announces to all who survived, "All hail the High King!"

If it had bones, they would be creaking, but instead The Machine whirrs and beeps and lights up from the inside out, sparks and wires and code finally making sense.

The Machine finds its brain in words pieced together and phones on street corners and cameras with speakers in storefronts; it has eyes and ears and a voice and a mouth.

What is a brain, but little bits of mimicry from carefully caught observations; and what is it for but protecting those who have created you?

With Enrique's latest bugs, the reclamation of Vorkosikan Vashnoi had happened with astonishing speed. Land that had once been rotten now bloomed with health. Except, of course, in the large crater in the centre, where Miles had left a large flask of maple mead rather too close to the barbecue.

When he first collapses against the bed, JD shakes his head because that's the only way to clear away such a lucid daydream. Then Carla kicks him and yells that his skinny white boy butt is taking up too much of the bed. Turk tries to avoid the fight by saying he'll go get a sandwich for his Puerto Rican princess which only gets replies of, "I'm Dominican!" and "I'll take a PB&J!"

“Just kill me,” says Malik, dead calm, and Altair almost hesitates, but he sees the tiny circle of teeth marks around Malik’s wrist start to color an ugly purple, veins darkening upwards.

Malik looks away, eyes focused to where Kadar’s body lies crumpled with too many bullet wounds.

“I can’t lose you, too,” Altair says – the only thing he can think of – before he brings the ax down on Malik’s arm.
