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.

Lord Peter Wimsey, Harriet/Peter, Latin banter

[personal profile] pencildragon11 2013-03-15 04:26 pm (UTC)(link)
He retreats to Latin to mask the sting of feelings long denied—Latin, that timeworn, timeless tongue—and hesitant, she meets him there, slipping behind his defenses and drawing him out, piece by piece. Behind the foolish banter, behind the dazzling display of borrowed words, behind the French endearments and ancient Hebrew love poetry, there is only Peter: fumbling for words and shaking in his boots. But she is only Harriet, and it is enough.

So she noticed the hands, he thinks wryly. One wonders whether her remembering their shape means that she is harbouring a little attraction to them, somewhere - but he shakes his head and lets that thought go. Maybe it is Oxford that has made everything different, but he cannot play the suave fool who relentlessly pursues her anymore.

Edmund looked at the tankard of ale sitting on his night stand and said to his sister, "Lucy, you know I don't drink."

"Unfortunately, so does everyone else, Edmund. If it makes you feel better, think of this as weapons training."

He studies interactions between Walter Bishop and Peter Bishop in an attempt to understand what is so remarkable about the relationship between father and son. The nuances take many years to catalog and analyze. Even then, September does not understand - not the way Donald does in the years to come.

[personal profile] pencildragon11 2013-03-15 06:35 pm (UTC)(link)
The familiar voice is speaking, the words precise and flowing; he lays out the evidence as every good detective ought, presenting and discarding each suspect in ordered turn. She hears the words but all she sees are his hands—the one, holding hers secure and the other, riffling through the dossier. They are not the flabby, aimless hands one might expect of a man born with too much money; of course they are not the hardened and callused hands of man born to drudgery—they are . . . they are—rather like her father's hands, she thinks suddenly: precise, strong, comforting hands, the hands of a country doctor and of home.

Hey all,

Last year (well, 2011 technically), [livejournal.com profile] grim_lupine created a delicious account to archive the 3 Sentence Ficathon. I asked and got permission to reactivate it for archiving this one, so, here is the account (nothing current added yet, though): https://previous.delicious.com/3sentence

And if anyone would be willing to help knock down the backlog of the prolific-ness thus far, let me know!!

(I know folks are kinda down on delicious with the changes, but, hey, it's an archive already set up with useful tags!)

This was her first visit to the Tau'ri - after hearing so much about them from both Jacob and Martouf. She was intrigued, eager, to make her own impressions.

Walking down the ramp at Stargate Command, Anise and her host both spotted something that awoke not just their curiosity, but also warmer feelings; two Tau'ri men were there, welcoming them, and Freya and Anise just knew it would be hard to pick which one was the more intriguing.

"If you agree to be my host, we will fight the Goa'uld together," the dying man said, with a strange, distorted voice.

Around us the world was burning, the houses in my village on fire, my parents and my siblings dead. Only I was left - and this strange, mortally injured man, speaking with a voice I had only previously heard from the gods. And this was obviously no god. I look towards were my mother and father lie dead, and my lips quiver, and I feel tears starting to run. Tomorrow is my twelfth birthday. I am too old to behave like a little child. "I am sorry for crying," I apologize, afraid, so afraid, that the strange man will leave me too. That I will be completely alone. No one else left alive. Unless the Jaffa come back, and then I will almost certainly die too. Perhaps that would be better?

"Do not be sorry. It is natural to be afraid - but you must choose soon. I am dying from my wounds, my host is already gone, and I cannot survive for much longer." He gives me a sad smile. "My name is Lantash."

"Martouf... and I will be your host," I decide. At least I will not be alone, never again be alone, and maybe I will get a chance to avenge my family.


(Sorry, this got a bit too long).

"SG-1 will be arriving later today?" Martouf asked.

"Yes, they insist on receiving that training session in Tok'ra unarmed combat you foolishly suggested after the team was attacked by smugglers. If you really feel they need it, perhaps you should be in charge of it!" Delek exclaimed angrily, clearly not looking forward to the humans visit.

"It will be my pleasure!" Martouf smiled. He and Lantash both looked forward to learning more about the intriguing Tauri - but mostly to seeing Samantha again.

He acted like he knew her: as if he knew how she would react to things, as if they had a history together, she and he and the snake in his head. But there was no snake in her head, for Jolinar had been no gentle, welcomed presence; and no matter what Lantash said, all she saw was Martouf.

Frankly, it all kind of gave her the creeps.

Dark Is Rising/rthstewart's Narnia cross, Will + Susan, royal mien
pencildragon11: (Default)

[personal profile] pencildragon11 2013-03-15 08:29 pm (UTC)(link)
There was a deep magic in her, wilder than the Gramarye he had learned from Merriman, and the Light shone in her so that almost Will could have thought her an Old One—there were untold years hidden in the queen who belonged no more and no less to this time than did Bran. If Will had been a mortal or if he had been a generation older, he thought he would have loved her, would have sworn his allegiance to the rat instead of the raven. But he was the Watchman and he was the Pendragon's dewin, and he did not belong in her story.

Sorry, I tried to bring more rthverse in and it just didn't happen.

For all that had changed in the world since he had...er...fallen asleep, there were some things that had remained, little things that still brought joy to a man's heart. The brilliant sunrise, for example, was a wonder never lost. He smiled to himself as he watched it wax and wane, letting the peace of a new day wash away the horrors of yesterday.

The Wretched Hollow Feeling

[personal profile] vialethe 2013-03-15 08:48 pm (UTC)(link)
The third time Ed and Peter nearly come to blows, and Lucy valiantly holds back tears as a child of her age should not be able to manage, Susan follows Edmund out to the gardens.

"I don't know what's wrong with us, Su," he says without looking at her, his head tipped back against the wall, the shadows running along his child's jaw in a way that makes her face recall the scrape of his stubble, back when he had to bend to embrace her.

"We used to be kings and queens," she says, sitting beside him, repressing the urge to spread invisible skirts, "and now we've crumbled back down to this, and have to make the best of it, and remember who we are."

When Peter lifts Etta in his arms a surge of protective love sweeps over him, greater than any he's felt before. A sudden, irrational fear seizes him that if he lets Etta go, she'll be snatched away. The moment passes; he sets his daughter down, and the sun shines brighter.

Her hands are on Peter's shoulders, and Edmund's are on hers, and Peter said it's all right so it must be. She steps forward firmly and doesn't turn her head, lest all the assembly see the tears pooling in her eyes, but she takes a deep breath and holds it inside her as long as she can, holds onto the gold and the spice and the warm richness of the air. Then they are through the door and taking their seats on the platform, and she lets it go.

It's not easy to look past Blaine's past infidelity, but now that they're separated -- just friends -- it's easy for Kurt to remember what drew him to Blaine in the first place. He watches Blaine run a hand through sweated dark locks; smiles when Blaine does, more amused than Blaine's slightly nervous, but all adore smile.

He thinks about the first time he saw that smile; the first time they fitted their hands together; their first kiss -- Kurt feels like they're starting all over again, and hugs the other man happily.
