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.

The light Asim associated with Queen Lucy the Valiant paled to insignificance to the light that shone when Aslan came to escort his son his country. At long last, Asim could look at God's great light without a headache.

"And who are ye?" Duncan asked, sword at the ready.

"Bond. James Bond."

"No, I killed him last week," Duncan protested.

Bond brushed imaginary lint from his lapel. "You can kill me too," he said, "but you cannot kill James Bond. For you there can be only one. For us, there must always be one."

*yeah, IDK this probably isn't at all what you meant, and it's much more than 3 sentences, apologies*

Yay for an Oz(/Willow) prompt! This is set post S7, ignoring comics and assuming Willow and Oz got their reunion in Istanbul.

"I'm just so tired of fighting and never winning," Willow sighed quietly, looking down at where her fingers tangled with Oz's, continuing "I'm tired of wars that don't end and of funerals for Slayers and I'm tired of nothing ever changing."

"We could run away," Oz responded after a moment, but they both knew that they could never escape to a life of more than blood and death, that this war would follow them (had followed them to Tibet and to Scotland and every place in between), and that they would never be able to escape the futile, devastating struggle, the way Oz could never escape his wolf and Willow could never escape her own darkness.

"Maybe one day," Willow smiled weakly, leaning her forehead against Oz's, and wistfully imagined a day when she and Oz could escape this bloody existence, when they could run away together; she kissed him softly and whispered, "I always wanted to see the world with you."

His mother told him that he has to wait till he turns fifteen to go topside.

"Screw that," says Uncle Fin, and Uncles Fluke and Mussels laugh and haul him up sunward where the sea roars at the shore and grabs him back every time he tries to beach, and suddenly right there in front of him is a real live siren, one of those land temptresses Fin and Fluke are always telling disaster stories about, only this one doesn't seem dangerous and--

"Sis is going to fillet us alive," Mussels moans, watching from the waves as the wily siren sings the boy out of his world and into her own.

They say that time marches on but Monty doesn't know if he's ready to face all the changes he's encountering at his old alma mater, Harvard. As he wandered the library stacks, a place that always felt more like home than any of the more conventional places one might use the word for, he tried to decide if Simon would be proud of where he'd ended up. No, he decided, he'd just mock him for his maudlin journey through the past.

She forced herself to not fidget as he studied her appearance though really, there was nothing different about her except the clothes—comfortable as they were, she was still adjusting to the corsets and floor-length skirts that was the custom of these Northern countries which were unlike any garments she owned at her family's home in Calavar—she now wore.

She also reminded herself that he—a Prince who was raised as the son of a poor fisherman—was in no position to critique her choice of attire, and she grinned inwardly as she caught him repeatedly pushing up the thin golden circlet on his fair head.

"Aravis," she looked up as he finally addressed her, "the clothes, they—" he stammered for a moment and a faint blush began to appear on his face before he said, "you look... beautiful."

She is to be treated as the King's sister now. It doesn't sound so bad at first, but then she remembers that they too were sent to marry kings far away and desperately searched for love, and now one of them is already dead and the other is a papist in a country half at war with England and she certainly doesn't want that. She'll just have to fend for own, she decides, build herself a snug little home and amuse herself there, and most importantly, never marry a king again nor search for that all-destroying love.

(loved the comic! I knew the artist, but I'd never seen that one.)

(Chalice prompt OMG! Um, so, it's been a while since I read McKinley, so sorry in advance if this sounds off!)

When the Master asks for a story one night soon after the Heir's visit, all that comes to Mirasol's mind, perhaps unfortunately, is the story of the King whose daughter loved him like salt; she is able to keep her voice steady when she describes how the Princess was exiled far away and supplanted by her siblings, strong when she describes how the Princess fell in love and rose to her former station by her own goodness; and even somewhat light-hearted when she describes how the old King at last clutched his errant child to his heart and declared her as dear to him as salt to meat.

At the end of her story, the Master laughs and says into the darkness: "I would not have been salt, to him, except perhaps in his wounds; it would have done me no good."

No, she thinks as he leaves, you have always been as pure and sweet as honey, and salt I could give up, but never honey.

"'ello, there. You wouldn't be needing some insurance for that journey ahead of you, now would you?"

The strange accent startled Frodo out of his deep contemplations about the trip, and he glanced around him, confused, searching for the owner of that voice; finally, his eyes latched on to a tiny green lizard, looking up at him expectantly, and his eyebrows rose in amazement.

"Pepper's going to kill you," Bruce muttered as he surveyed the wreck of a living room, "and you better not blame me for any of it because she's not going to fall for it this time."

Tony gave him a smile that was supposed to be flirtatious but always made him look like an adorable little boy. "It was your idea even if I'm the one who did the majority of the damage this time around."

The cheers of the crowds faded in his ears as the black horse thundered down the stretch, taking the lead. They moved as one, seemingly without effort, almost as if they were flying. And as they crossed the finish line, Alec smelled the salty air and heard the roar of the surf once again.
