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.

All Jessica remembers now is that after whatever happened, she was furious with Lila and that feeling had lingered for months. It couldn't have been about a boy because no boy is special enough to actually get in the way of something like their friendship. When Lila says hello, Jessica puts it all behind her and links their arms as she smiles, informing the other woman that she will be borrowing the espadrilles that Lila is wearing as though nothing has changed.

Then, he was angry -- justifiably so, but angry nonetheless. Mad at the world, mad at Altair, mad at himself for not being able to save his brother.

Now, here in Masyaf assisting Altair in bringing the Assassins into a new era, he has found a peace he once thought would elude him forever.

Sketch (Charlie/Janine, Claudia)

[identity profile] redsilverchains.livejournal.com 2013-03-27 01:09 pm (UTC)(link)
(hehe, probably not what you were expecting!)

“I’m buying another one,” a smiling, exasperatedly pink-cheeked Charlie Thomas gestures with a handful of bills at Claudia’s latest sketch, “no, let me guess—she was drawing you at your computer, wasn’t she?”

“You are once more correct, and I… I believe this one is an analytical study on the divisions of light, shadow-shapes, and color variegations,” Janine says, prim and unblushing; she neatly fits the handful of change into Charlie’s fingers.

Oh my Lord, is this my art sale or a matchmaking service? Claudia thinks; she can’t help but grin as Charlie and Janine continue to exchange “art talk” while trading shy and shining glances at each other.

"Just admit that you've been beaten and we can end this, novice."

Altair glares at Malik, frowns back down at the source of his frustration, and knocks the table to the floor and the chessboard along with it.

Now, Altair smirks as if to say "who's beaten now?" and Malik glares as if to say "I will beat you for this."

He says, 'three' and Shaun frowns, lowering his raised hand (thumb and pinky finger folded in). The answer is correct and Rebecca looks relieved as she reassures, "He's fine, see?", but the stare Desmond gives them is cold and blank, devoid of recognition.

Desmond Miles is not all right.

mustachio: (Default)

[personal profile] mustachio 2013-03-17 04:37 pm (UTC)(link)
At seventeen years old, Ezio likes to think he knows everything about everything-- especially girls.

He sneaks Petruccio out occasionally, points out the prettiest girls Petruccio's age and tells his little brother exactly what to say to them when they're older to make those girls weak in the knees.

Their mother always catches them of course, smacks Ezio upside the head while scolding him, and Ezio can't help but feel ashamed that his wisdom doesn't extend to older women as well.

Assassin's Creed, Yusuf Tazim/Kadar Al-Sayf, college AU
degrees: ([ FFVII ; Rufus ; Hairflip ])

[personal profile] degrees 2013-03-17 03:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Yusuf is older, and wiser, and more interesting than anyone Kadar has ever met before. When he talks, all Kadar can do is daydream about how he would sound in more intimate settings, and when he smiles Kadar feels like the sun has come out just for him.

When the two of them are assigned a project together Kadar resigns himself to failing his own part due to lack of concentration, until Yusuf asks if there's anything he can do to help-- Kadar wants so badly to impress him that he forces himself to keep on task, even though it means sneaking fewer glances at Yusuf's face as they work.

The first Yule they celebrated together was not the first Yule after the War of the Ring, but it was a jubilant celebration nonetheless. Because of the Year of Plenty, everyone had more than enough, and there was gaiety all around. Bag End hosted one of the largest parties around; as usual, most everyone was invited, and the festivities lasted until long into the night.

[personal profile] renquise 2013-03-17 05:57 pm (UTC)(link)
These are the things Connor learns from Achilles: how to lose a fight to a man with a limp and take it graciously; how to kill a man when he has a musket and you have your hands; how to bury a blade in a man’s throat quickly, painlessly; how to cook tender venison stews for the winter and delicate okra for the summer.

How to be so angry at someone because they are old and bitter and just don't understand that you leave for the sea and do not return for weeks on end; how to apologize.

How to support legs that have grown weak but have not yet shed their pride; how to lose someone slowly and gradually; how to remember, all over again.

[personal profile] grey_wonderer 2013-03-20 04:49 pm (UTC)(link)
Bilbo would always remember the mixture of fear and wonder that he felt when he found himself sailing high above the earth, not knowing if the magnificent bird would see him safely to the ground again or drop him. Now, even as he approached his one hundredth birthday, he still dreamed of flying with the Eagles. Most of the dreams were filled with wonder, but sometimes, the dreams took a darker turn and he felt himself plummeting to the earth, falling from the eagle's back, the ground rushing up to met him, and only waking seconds before his dream self hit the ground.

He doesn't look up to acknowledge her presence when she enters the room, gaze focused steadily on the two empty beds before him; he still doesn't acknowledge her when she rests a hand on his shoulder, the comfort of the gesture lost on him now.

Yet, for all the lack of acknowledgment, she remains. They are allies, and though his battle is not a tangible one, she has never been one to abandon her allies in their time of need.
