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.

[personal profile] starbrow 2013-03-20 04:07 am (UTC)(link)
The Market Chipping pub should have been the perfect place to have a nice, normal, uneventful night away from husbands and lovers, and for a while indeed Sophie was able to enjoy the company of her sisters and a nice cup of tea (Martha thought she should let loose for once, and Lettie threatened to spike her tea if she didn't join in the next round of ales) unhindered.

Alas, such tranquility could not last long...not with a husband like Howl.

"The party has arrived!" cried a young man with a shock of long blond hair, a blue-and-silver spangled costume, and a very embarrassed Michael trailing behind him, catching the girls that swooned in the wake of the scandalously reputed heart-eater Howl Jenkins.

Professor McGonagall felt tired as she stood up and greeted the first years, their faces lit up with anticipation, but she was determined to do well by her new post and her late predecessors. With any luck, this first day of school, the first after that horrible battle, would mark the beginning of a new, a better, era for Hogwarts and for the wizarding community.

"And it is with special pleasure that I welcome our new members of staff to Hogwarts today, so may I ask you to join me in a warm applause for Professors John Watson and Sherlock Holmes -"

Elementary/The Great Mouse Detective, Joan Watson & Sherlock Holmes & Dawson & Basil, the game is afoot (or a-paw, whatever)
pleonasm: (pic#5812056)

[personal profile] pleonasm 2013-03-20 02:18 am (UTC)(link)
When Joan came into the living room one morning, sleep-rumpled and yawning from a late night looking through case files until her eyes watered and swam with ghosts, she found Sherlock prostate on the ground behind the bookcase, pulled out just far enough to allow him access; to her credit, Joan just rolled her eyes and sighed, which alerted Sherlock to her presence. He sprang up, eyes bright in a way that suggested he'd never quite made it to bed, and he said, "Joan, we have mice - and they're completely brilliant, I have to show you!", and not for the first time, Joan contemplated the life she had chosen for herself, and she decided she needed coffee, trailing off into the kitchen with Sherlock right behind.

After a long minute, Dawson and Basil emerged from the hole, Dawson looking apologetic and Basil adjusting his coat fussily; "Come now, before he returns," Basil said, setting a pace his partner could hardly match, "We must solve it first!"

"She went to the war in my place," Fa Zhou hung his head, sorrow written on his aged features.

Fa Li gasped, "What will the neighbors say?"

Hercules (1997), Hercules/Megara, he can't believe the nasty rumors spreading about him and his family
pleonasm: (pic#5812080)

[personal profile] pleonasm 2013-03-22 02:43 am (UTC)(link)
When Hercules came home that evening, there was defeat in his eyes; he sat down heavily on his favorite chair and Megara draped herself over him, lifting a hand to her forehead melodramatically (the children giggled).

"Have you heard - " she asked, "Oh have you heard - that crazy demigod Hercules has slaughtered his whole family because of the jealousy of Hera?"

Hercules frowned, but Megara just rolled her eyes and continued, "You'd think that your uncle would know better than to spread rumors and make your mother mad; don't worry, last I heard, all the fire in Hades had gone out," and then her husband smiled.

Mulan(1998), Fa Mulan/Li Shang, dinner is a disaster
starbrow: (Default)

[personal profile] starbrow 2013-03-20 05:15 am (UTC)(link)
This always happened when Mulan got nervous about things going well...wincing, she surveyed the damage in the kitchen: the pan of burned rice, the shards of a shattered teacup in the corner, miserable lumps of chicken drowning in sauce, and Little Brother sniffing around for dropped bits of food on the floor. She should never have set foot near a tea set again, much less attempted a meal.

But when Fa Li apologized profusely to the great General Li for her daughter's clumsiness and failure in the kitchen, Shang just shook his head, grinned, and said, "She was not given the Emperor's crest for her cooking skills, Madame Fa."

[personal profile] wingedflight 2013-03-19 10:33 pm (UTC)(link)
"Calm down, friend," soothed Peter, slipping effortlessly into his High King persona as he cradled the terrified baby hedgehog in his hands.

"I want my mamma!" squeaked the hedgehog's brother, nudging Peter's foot indignantly.

"And would you say," struggled Eustace, who had not yet recovered from finding Narnians on this side of the wardrobe, "that this is a normal day for you, cousin?"

Growing up, Taichi has come to learn, is a lot about growing small, about going from saving the world to standing back and trusting others to do it for you, from fighting with your best friend for who gets to walk in front to standing back and letting him make the girl you like happy.

Agumon listens like he has always listened and pats the left side of his chest with a gentle claw. "I don't know," he says, "I think you've grown pretty big in some places too."

The newer generations of usurper brats must not be as tough as back in the day, because by the time Red finally comes down off that mountain Green is sickeningly, distressingly glad to see him—not that Green would ever say so, but it does feel less like Red’s coming back and a lot more like he’s coming home, and wow, embarrassing.

Green doesn’t say please either, when they’re eating breakfast together and Red gets that faraway expression on his face as he gazes into the west, the light in his eyes suddenly as devoid of warmth as electricity on snow, and what Green ends up saying is, “Stay.”

It comes out all weird and sounding like please anyway, even though they haven’t always fit that well, even though both of them are pretty awful at being ordinary, but this time Red looks like he hasn’t sat down in years and Green’s getting tired of wandering Kanto between Gym matches like he’s doomed to never find what he’s looking for, maybe because it’s been up a damn mountain this whole time—

—but then Red turns from the window in a decisive way and does this thing with his face that looks suspiciously like a smile, and after a moment Green returns with a grin of his own: this time they’ll both stay.

Avengers (MCU), Steve Rogers + Siri, Steve hasn't gotten over his culture shock just yet

(I don't even own an iPhone, but I couldn't resist. Many apologies if it's a disaster.)

The first time Steve presses the mystery button--not that he knows how he presses "the mystery button" which is why, in fact, it is a mystery--he drops the phone and cracks the screen.

It talked to him!

But after a heart to heart with JARVIS, much razzing from Tony, robust sympathy from Thor, and a calm tutorial from Bruce (Steve couldn't get Pepper to stop moving long enough, though she'd promised to show him the basics), he feels confident enough to ask Siri how to get to Shawarma on his own.

The universe, Snowman discovers, contains frogs.

They're the tiniest creatures, loathesome hopping specks that are nothing compared to the wealth of stars and gas and endless black that tumble through her, clothe and diminish and apotheosise her, make her so much more than a queen with a queen's enemies.

She smooths her gown of infinite galaxies, gives the room a cool glance as she flicks her cigarette, and tries not to let on that she is dishevelled and messy with frogs.

Tangled, Flynn + Maximus, frying pans

[personal profile] pleonasm 2013-03-22 02:34 am (UTC)(link)
Eugene liked to think that he had led a comparatively normal life before he met Rapunzel - between capers, it was fairly dull, to be honest - but all of that had changed, now, and he couldn't really complain too much.

He could really go for some normal about now, he thought as he rounded a corner of the castle hallway and came face to face with one of the invaders, who was moving his sword way too fast to even be real, and this was going to be it for Eugene Fitzherbert, prince consort, formerly known as Flynn Rider, professional thief; he shut his eyes.

There was the clatter of hooves, followed by a clang, and when he opened his eyes he saw Maximus, frying pan clutched hard in his teeth, the invader on the ground, the worse for wear, and Eugene had never been so glad to see his wife's favorite horse; who cared about normal anymore, anyway?

A librarian places a stack of invaluable scrolls in her hands, on the promise she's given in Parisian accented French that she'll keep them safe, before declining coming with her with a nod to all the remaining dusty tomes and an, "il faut que je reste ici."

She doesn't insult the man's courage by insisting. She too knows well the price of knowledge.

Her braid had been a symbol of her bond with the Sisterhood, and at first Cara had missed it, had felt almost naked without it. She comforted herself with the thought that her hair would grow again. In the meantime, her short hair marked her out as a different kind of Mord'Sith, one without the restrictive neckpiece, one who possessed two Agiels, one who followed the true Lord Rahl.
