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.

Their eyes met in a frission of electricity and fire. Regina smiled, her lips as red as the blood dripping from Darken Rahl's dagger.

"Regina," Darken purred her name, "have you ever been to the Midlands?"

Once Upon A Time, Prince Charming's hair/Snow White's hair, true love in a bottle

[identity profile] andi-horton.livejournal.com 2013-03-18 02:51 am (UTC)(link)
(cracky! love the prompt, couldn't resist)

"What do you mean, lice?" Charming said, watching his wife rush around their apartment like a diminutive tornado.

"I mean lice!" cried Snow, bundling bits of clothing into an already bulging garbage bag, "I mean that my entire class has lice, I mean my head feels like it is alive with creepy-crawling evil; I mean I am going to wash EVERYTHING WE OWN, and I mean that if you love me, if you ever loved me, you will go right this very instant to buy ALL the Nix at the drugstore--assuming that my students' parents haven't gotten there first."

And, because he loved her, and knew better than anybody what that particular look in her eye promised anyone who crossed her, Charming gave his wife his cap and headed out the door.

Akari told him that one of the English words for ghost was apparition, and Hikaru got mad at her for no reason.

Ghosts didn’t appear, he told her. That wasn’t the problem with them at all.

She found him near death, in the desert, eyes a bloody ruin.

She healed him with his own magic, taken by trickery.

Richard smiled his gratitude and called her savior, though Nicci knew herself to be a devil.

Legend of the Seeker, Richard/Denna, you'll never be free of me

[personal profile] meridian_rose 2013-03-18 01:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Richard would never be free of Denna, never quite stop loving his Mistress, though he told himself his heart burned with desire only for Kahlan.

Denna could never be free of Richard, of what he'd done, of what he'd set in motion, of how he'd ruined her life.

It was a match made in the Underworld, that they'd be never together but never truly apart, locked in an eternal and unforgiving and unholy matrimony.

I would give her all my blood, crush the breath from my body for a kind word. I would kill indiscriminately, if my Mistress would smile.

I will never tell that even now I am not free, and at times, late at night, I still long for her.

He'd destroyed the world, in a manner of speaking – a damaged world, true, but one in which Richard had been happy. He'd do it again in a heartbeat if it meant making things right, saving the world.

Legend of the Seeker, any Mord'Sith, the symbolism of the braid
meridian_rose: legend of the seeker featuring richard, kahlan, zedd and cara (Legend of the Seeker: cara)

[personal profile] meridian_rose 2013-03-19 11:35 am (UTC)(link)
Mord'Sith wore their hair long as a sign of the authority, tightly plaited so their tresses did not impede their fighting skills (they thought Confessors were silly to have their hair flying loose during battle).

A braid was often woven by a fellow Sister, a show of camaraderie, the braid itself representing discipline and devotion as well as being practical.

In contrast, letting someone unbraid your hair, allowing them to release your locks, to caress the nape of your neck...that was a sign of trust, a far more intimate act than those outside the Sisterhood realised.

Legend of the Seeker, Darken/Kahlan, first kiss

(Anonymous) 2013-03-17 11:50 pm (UTC)(link)
Their first kiss was cold, and Kahlan imagined she could taste the blood of all of Darken Rahl's victims on his lips.

When she told him as much, he said he could feel the stolen will of her victims clawing at the back of his throat.

She was speechless.

He wears the mask of the bumbling detective to put them at ease, to reel them in. Tear the mask away and he is smiling through the blood and pulpy flesh because there's nothing real about any face he tries to wear. There was something under the mask at one point, he's sure, but it's long forgotten in favor of the taste of blood.

Not sure if this is what you're looking for...

"Listen Pole, before we use the Rings, there's something I want to tell you," he began and as she turned her head toward him, he could see her eyes widen in surprise—or was it fear? Before he could try to analyze her expression, there was a sudden jerk of the carriage and as he fell backwards towards the aisle, he could dimly hear a horrible screech that seemed to grow louder with every passing second.

The last thought he had before he shut his eyes and ears against the sights and sounds of what he hoped wasn't a derailment was, As usual, Scrubb, your timing to share Very Important News is impeccable.

Assassin's Creed, Connor

[personal profile] mustachio 2013-03-18 01:47 am (UTC)(link)
He felt like two different people, sometimes-- torn between the world of the colonists and the world of his people, never quite fitting in completely in either one.

It was tiring, too tiring and on many occasions he would find himself seriously considering dropping his role in this war he's involved himself in, dropping it and returning to his people to live out a simpler, possibly happier life.

He would hate himself on those occasions when he'd have such selfish thoughts; this was not something he was doing for himself, it was something he was doing for the world and Connor is glad for the sharp sting of Achilles' cane when the old man would knock him out of his self pitying thoughts.

He studied carefully, till his erudition was greater even than that of Princess Ida. He worked hard, stuck close to his desk, suppressed dreams of going to sea. Happiness surprised him, in the autumn of his life, when the Lord Chancellor gave him the task of looking after an entire chorus of agreeable girls.
