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.

She sees mountains, deserts, cities and towns that time has beaten into dusty, derelict submission. People speak differently, act differently, and though she doesn't hate it, she doesn't love it either. She kisses a boy, then another, and both times it's nice enough but neither of them are the boy she'd thought she would first kiss, so the memories seem wrong.

(every time she starts to feel she has nowhere to belong, she thinks of the only other woman who might know what this is like, and remembers just in time that home needs no fixed address)

There were a million devices that Tony and Bruce had created, playing around, and one of them found her. Three months of her mouth as they worked and she finally shut it after one last word: "Doctor." Tony was just happy that powdered Vibranium had now had a successful field trial as a detox pill for extraterrestrial whim-wham.

"I have missed this so much!" Maria gushes, settling down on the attic couch while Rani inserts a DVD into Mr. Smith's slot and Sky returns with two bowls of popcorn.

"I've never even done this before," Sky says, curling up beside Maria, "How does a girl's night work?"

"Movies, snacks, and lots of gossip," Rani replies, and to demonstrate asks Maria, "So how have the aliens been in America?"

Sarah Jane Adventures/Classic Who, Sarah Jane Smith, where she got her sonic lipstick
pleonasm: (pic#5812040)

[personal profile] pleonasm 2013-03-17 07:02 am (UTC)(link)
I believe the prevailing theory is that the Doctor gave her the lipstick along with K9, but let's go for something more fun.

*

"A sonic disrupter," the Doctor had called it once, and he'd sort of explained in that rambling, deep-voiced way of his the way the sonic screwdriver worked and how he could use it to unlock doors. Being a journalist who found herself on the wrong side of too many locked doors, Sarah Jane had listened attentively for once, discarding all the rubbish and flowery words to pick up as much of the science as she could.

Back on Earth after Aberdeen, she brought the details to UNIT's new scientific advisor and charmed him into making her a prototype, and over the years, she refined the design into something that worked quite well, in her opinion - at least, it was opening doors for her, decades later, and it could go anywhere, unlike K9; in the end, it might have been her favorite 'gift' from the Doctor, the one she'd built herself.

[I don't know why I'm giving this a try except that it's for you so...]

Malik has no need of a left hand because he has no arm to guide it. Yet he has one most of the time anyway in the form of a younger brother who still clings to him when he can. A man with two hands can truly accomplish whatever he puts his mind to.

"It's not like I looked for very long," Kanji said, blushing.

Souji nodded, patting Kanji's shoulder and eyeing up his split lip. He still wasn't sure what Kanji had actually looked at, but the offer of a Topsicle in place of an ice pack had gone over well, at least.

Assassin’s Creed 3, William Johnson/Thomas Hickey, tried and true
djsoliloquy: ([stock] nautical theme / I'd ship it)

[personal profile] djsoliloquy 2013-03-16 11:35 pm (UTC)(link)
“You’re bearing it well,” Johnson says as he pulls at the bindings, fitting Thomas’s arms tighter than they have ever attempted before but Thomas simply groans and accepts the new tension, thrilling Johnson anew with how very good the lad can be if approached in the right manner.

Each time is like a gift, but with patience they can always get here eventually—that place where coarse exteriors and sparring of words are scoured away under the ache of pleasure and exhaustion, where they both get exactly what they need and for a time everything is simple, raw and true.

Thomas lifts his head and manages a tired grin, mouth open and lips dry from breathing hard as he says, “Thank you, Mister Johnson.”

It doesn't matter that Hikaru is in a race with someone else to get to the top. Or that Waya's own talent will never eclipse that rising star. What matters is that they both make enough money now to pay for regular contests of who can eat the most kaiten-zushi.

This isn't magic run wild, tingling with the scent of a land and a lion; this is magic governed by rules, and a stick in your hands, and words hard and crisp in your mouth. The same classes year after year, turning mice into snuffboxes and birds into goblets, dreaming their innocent and foolish child-dreams.

After the shock of having everything she held dear yanked away from her in an instant, a shock that reverberates through her nightmares still, the logic of it all appeals to her.

[personal profile] mardypants 2013-03-16 08:18 am (UTC)(link)
She is very angry of course, nearly smothered under an unruly crowd of baby baobabs, but only after he pulls the very last one does she claw him in her temper. Two little marks, rose-red, and feeling the blood run down, the old sting, he can almost remember something vitally important, about a hat -- no, an elephant, and... sheep?

"Naturally you should understand I was never in need of rescue," she says, interrupting his thoughts, but this time the touch on his skin is that of a flower turning toward the sun, a brush of petals soft as the laughter of stars.

(Anonymous) 2013-03-13 10:16 am (UTC)(link)
Names are not just designations or titles given at birth.

Both Beauty and the Beast know well that names are not always given, but are chosen.

They also know that it is the chosen names that linger while others fade away.

He'd tried the patches, easily hidden under his clothing. They didn't quell the craving. So he tossed another piece of the gum in his mouth, as yet unwilling to consider that the smoking was just an extension of an oral fixation.

Narnia, Sea-Girl, first sight

(Anonymous) 2013-03-13 01:27 pm (UTC)(link)
One time, there came one of those things she had heard of, a darkness gliding above her as silently as the great whales would glide. She dared then to look up,to see how they looked, these strange ones who fled the sweet enfolding waters to dwell by choice above, in parching, searing air.

Their eyes met, and an ocean-swelling rush of pure love surged in her, and in both of them, she knew, indelibly.

Lizzie's trip to England is an almost mystical experience...right up until it starts raining in Bath. But Lizzie is not alone, and Darcy is no longer a single man. He left the hotel with an umbrella that's big enough for two, so she gets to walk through puddle after puddle, and marvel at everything until they're ready for a real English tea.
