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.

Fraser keep track of the phases of the moon as a matter of habit, though these days he wouldn't have to; he can tell that the full moon is close by the ever-increasing anticipation that infuses Ray's every move and makes him restless from foot to toe, never standing still for more than five seconds.

By the time they clock off a couple of hours before the moon is due to rise, Ray's fingers are drumming staccato on the steering wheel on the way to his apartment, his body humming with the energy of the animal within, all glamour and pheromones, and even though Fraser is better acquainted with this now than he used to be, he's only just managing to keep his hands to himself.

They finally make it to Ray's and Ray hands the apartment keys to Fraser with shaky fingers, his hands already undoing buttons and zips before he's even through the door, shedding clothes like old skin and then he transforms and Fraser breathes a sigh of relief as he leans against the door, his hands buried in spiky golden fur.

Benton Fraser first came to Chicago on the trail of the killers of his father, and for reasons which definitely needed exploring at this juncture, he had remained, attached as liaison to the Canadian consulate.

“I disagree,” Fraser told Diefenbaker, who was very insistent on the subject.

Their apartment had burned down and there was a new Ray who wasn't his Ray and nothing was really the same; if they explored anything at all at this juncture, they'd get lost.

Fill, Al Mualim rather than Altaïr

[personal profile] halberdier 2013-03-20 08:35 pm (UTC)(link)
The training masters tell Al Mualim there is no more that they can teach the young Master. Al Mualim understands that the inability to teach lies not with humility of the teachers, but in the arrogance of the student.

Al Mualim thinks it would serve the impudent boy right to meet with Robert De Sable and truly understand his own limitations; even if such a valuable lesson is to his cost.

“I can’t afford you,” Malik says bluntly, running his hand through his hair and trying not to think of budget sheets, because finding funding for ridiculous, ambitious passion projects is nigh-impossible.

Altair blinks when he looks up from the script and says, “I’ll do it anyways--you want to do this right, right?” with all the assurance of someone who knows that he’s good, and that Malik could take another stuntman or actor, but it wouldn’t be the same; it's then, maybe, that Malik starts thinking that it can really happen.

It takes years yet, but Altair comes every time Malik calls from whatever locations he can wrangle with other jobs, when he has a crew and a camera and a few days to spare, and Altair flies through the air in Argentina, in Turkey, in India, and he’s there even after that, when he hesitantly shakes Malik awake in the editing room, and after, when the lights fall in the theatre and Malik feels Altair’s starched cuff brush against his own as the projector rolls.

Persona 4, Souji/Dojima, labeling food
tanyart: ([ac] it will pass)

[personal profile] tanyart 2013-03-26 04:22 am (UTC)(link)
There’s usually no need to label the food in their fridge. Nanako’s always got her meals tucked neatly away in plastic containers and Souji’s the only person in the house who makes bento boxes, so it’s pretty clear which odd leftover pieces are Dojima’s – a slice of ham on a plate, for instance.

There’s no need to label anything, really, but in the quiet early mornings before work, Dojima still finds the time to scrawl a hasty “for souji” on the take-out cup of iced coffee – always with cream and sugar – before running out the door.

The Secret Garden Mary/Dickon, when spring comes
ext_1575635: (Default)

Life

[identity profile] saoirse7.livejournal.com 2013-03-20 08:49 pm (UTC)(link)
When spring comes, and the garden is alive again, Mary often finds herself there, with or without Colin, simply enjoying the beauty and remembering the long hours spent there before her uncle came home. And occasionally, the not-so-secret door to their not-so-secret garden will creak open, and she'll hear the caw of a crow, and see a rabbit scamper in, and know that Dickon isn't far behind. With delight and admiration in her expression she turns to greet him again, that funny looking boy with the beautiful blue eyes she had grown to love.

As a colt, he'd tried reining in his natural proclivities in favor of the greater good, really he had.

"What do we say to drugs, Nice Horse?" Nancy said all wide-eyed and earnest to the cameras as she offered him a red, white and blue sugar lump.

What followed wasn't exactly for the greater good, but certainly the occasion of Bad Horse's very first death whinny was a spectacular photo finish for all concerned.

Cal Leandros Series, Ishiah/Robin

[personal profile] tanyart 2013-03-21 08:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Robin has no idea who or what’s pissed off Ishiah this time, but now Ishiah's gone and cocooned himself in his wings again so it's up to him to part the rough golden feathers and slip inside, hands outstretched until he can feel where Ishiah's got his face buried in his arms and drawn-up knees.

"I don't want to have to deal with you right now, Robin," Ishiah growls, muffled and unwilling to move.

"Then how am I supposed to deal with you?" Robin sighs, pressing his temple close to Ishiah's forehead, invasive and probably annoying, but that just makes him harder to be ignored; "You're stuck with me anyway so you might as well tell me what’s wrong so I can at least pretend to care."

Suzy returns from their spiriting to a changed world, gaining a husband she barely knows and losing a mother she had only just begun to. But beyond all hope she still has Henry; his hand on the other side of the windowpane fits hers perfectly, and with the solidness of glass between she can almost believe it is real. Somehow, some way, Suzy vows, she will fix this mess, bring Henry inside where he belongs and send Aaron out into the shadows, a dream she never wanted to dream.

This is how the world ends: in frantic, spinning motion, all boundaries blurred, where heat flows from hand to hand, from the swing of a hip to a ragged breath to a scything sweep of hair--and back again, but never as high, never as deep, never as sharp--until all energy is spent and all movement simply, slowly . . . stops.

He knows she's just an unlikely collection of chemical reactions, thrown together by chance, refined over millions of years, and crystallized for a handful of moments into something unique and beautiful. And she knows he's just an idea awkwardly draped in human clothes, leaping quick as a spark from mind to mind since the first stories were spun around the first home fires--but she wants him.

Agent 86, aka Maxwell Smart, jumped sideways, eyes wide in surprise as the anvil crashed through the boards where he was just standing. "Missed me by that much!" he exclaimed, holding his forefinger and thumb about an inch apart. 99 rolled her eyes and shook her head, since there was really else nothing to say.

"Don't worry," he assures her, slapping his hand on the stones below to emphasize his point, "the walls of Troy will never fall as long as Priam rules, as long as Hektor lives, as long as I fight to protect you--to protect all of you."

Cassandra flinches from his words as though from a physical blow.

"Be that as it may," she says, in an unhappy, urgent voice, "the day they do--if they do--swear to me you'll take your wife and your son and anyone else you choose and you'll run"; he cannot understand (he rarely does, when it comes to her) but then, she has never asked him for anything else before.
