3 Sentence Ficathon

3 Sentence Ficathon Banner


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.

Supernatural, Death, he remembers every battle and every plague


(Anonymous) 2013-03-15 04:50 am (UTC)(link)
It is amusing he supposes how humans try to fix the death tolls of their stupid wars and plagues down onto paper, hoping to never forget and learn from it.
They never do.
He could provide them with the information the historians need if he were so inclined – but he is not for the deaths he brings back to his mind again and again are the happy ones, the old ones surrounded by family and friends after a life lived to the full.

[personal profile] lar_laughs 2013-03-17 05:00 am (UTC)(link)
It seems like a lifetime ago when she'd been onboard the TARDIS instead of just getting updates about where the Doctor was next but Martha doesn't care about the past. There are times when she looks at Mickey, his eyes intense with purpose, and she realizes that she has everything she's ever wanted. It sounds sappy (she'll never say it out loud) but he is her white knight and she is his.

Veronica Mars, Logan/Veronica, comeback
snacky: (listen do you want to know a secret?)

[personal profile] snacky 2013-03-14 03:31 am (UTC)(link)
She's crouched low, examining the body, when she hears footsteps approaching, and then a shadow blocks the sun, and when she glances up, Logan Echolls is looking down at her, with a smirk on his face.

"Well, Veronica Mars, why am I not surprised to find you here?"

She tells herself her heart isn't actually skipping a beat, that all that was between them was a long time ago, and she smiles when she asks, "Did you arrange this as a homecoming for me?"

They do not understand, not one of them, even as Narnians creep fearfully out of hiding and Telmarines burn through the forests. They squabble over who knows best while her people, endangered by hope, continue to die.

Lucy takes up her knife and goes out to fight.

Continuum, Alec Sadler (younger), leaving the barn

[personal profile] moon_blitz 2013-03-18 05:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Leaving the barn has always tough for him, but now it's not just because he's leaving the world of technology behind. No, he's leaving Kiera behind now, and the guilt and worry that tears at him ever time he does so makes his stomach churn. He is her lifeline to the world she was ripped away from after all, and while he doesn't want to admit it, she is his lifeline to the world outside the barn - the world he both wants to escape and so desperately be a part of.

Being alone with Kiera was like being alone with a live snake. She may be calm now, but he never knew when she would bare her fangs. Dangerous yes, but he wouldn't trade their time together for the world.

Kuroko no Basuke, Kagami/Aomine, weakness
degrees: ([ FFVII ; Rufus ; Hairflip ])

[personal profile] degrees 2013-03-15 11:53 am (UTC)(link)
Sometimes, Taiga thinks that Aomine eats weakness the way he eats burgers. It's frustrating when he finds his own weaknesses exploited when they play one-on-one together, and he ends up losing 99 times out of 100. But playing with Aomine has its advantages-- with each weakness he learns to turn into a strength, he gets to see the light in Aomine's eyes grow brighter just for him.

Till We Have Faces, Psyche and Orual, the gods were in the wrong

[personal profile] metonomia 2013-03-13 09:42 pm (UTC)(link)
This worship they demand, this sacrifice, cannot hold. Choice is the purest benediction, and Orual does not choose to give up her sister to a cold illusion, and that choice is as sacred as Psyche's body laid out on a mountain.

"Light the lamp," she urges her sister, and she knows that if the gods want to keep their hold on the world, they will accept whatever she chooses to give them.

Easy-A, Olive, she comes across The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

[identity profile] ruanchunxian0.livejournal.com 2013-03-16 09:31 am (UTC)(link)
(This is 6 sentences because I couldn't fit it all in.)

After The Scarlet Letter, it was Pride and Prejudice, and Olive got ready to argue the superiority of the ‘95 Colin Firth series over the 2005 Keira Knightley movie, to laugh at her classmates when they start talking about how rude Catherine De Bourgh was to visit and confront Elizabeth in the middle of the night because they didn’t realize that the Lady Catherine in the book would never had visited Longbourn in the middle of the night, no matter how incensed she was.

When she stumbled on the Lizzie Bennet Diaries while doing some research for one of her essays, and saw that not only was it modern and a vlog (what?), it was also American (she had nothing against her country, of course, but modern Pride and Prejudice in California sounded like a recipe for disaster), she watched it with the expectation of cringing at every scene.

She definitely did not expect to fall in love, to have her grounded opinion about so many characters challenged, or to love the girl she previously looked on with disdain, for if she could be said to have fallen in love with anyone from the LBD, it was Lydia, in all her wild abandon, in all her “energetic-ness”.

Lydia’s hurt at being shamed by virtual strangers who only knew the minimal story and the humiliation of having her regrets all laid out in the open for people to jeer at, to judge, were things that Olive now wished she only understood through reading a book. Her stint with the scarlet letter was barely a couple of weeks ago (she still had not managed to remove them all from her clothes yet) and no matter how it did end in a happy ending for her, certain memories still stung when she thought about them. She had never wished as strongly for a happy ending for Lydia as she did watching the LBD, and now, with only a few episodes left in the run of the show, she was not particularly anxious to see Darcy and Lizzie together (it would happen, of course, and she would smile when it did), but rather she hoped that in the end, the last vlog on Lydia’s channel would not be that declaration of love that in the end was torn to shreds and the source of all Lydia’s pain.

[personal profile] kephiso 2013-03-13 10:20 pm (UTC)(link)
This prompt reminds me kinda of one I'm just filling over at the anonmeme... but let me try it in three sentences :)

Leaning against the wall, Tyler watches as Segs is simultaneously dancing with a lean brown-haired girl and kissing a per-oxide blonde, a beer in his hand and obviously having a good time, and Tyler just can't contain the scowl any longer.

He pushes away from the wall and fights his way over to the bar - if he has to endure Segs flaunting his straightness in front of his eyes, he might as well do it with a lot of alcohol.

Because fuck it all, it's not as though Segs doesn't know what the fans think about them (yes, he has read that primer, and yes, he was shocked as to how accurate it was in places), and Tyler had hoped it would get Segs thinking, but his best friend is just too fucking oblivious.

I don't write The West Wing enough, so thank you for this prompt. :)

The Deputy White House Communications Director Club (West Wing, Sam/Will)

"This used to be my office, you know," Sam remarked casually, sitting on the edge of Will's desk to watch him type and listing all of the other things like this (an office, a career, a bed) he and Will had shared.

"Yes," Will nodded, not looking away from the speech he was tweaking for the sixth time that day, "and, very briefly, it belonged to a goat CJ put in here."

"I like that you have my office," Sam smiled, running his hand across Will's shoulders, and was quiet, because, if he knew Will (and he did, as well as he knew English punctuation or his own name) then he would want to keep editing his (probably perfect) speech, until it sang.

It isn't hard to remember to puff out her chest and throw back her shoulders, as though she were a little bantam rooster strutting the length of a fence. It isn't even so much a chore to lead her remarks with her chin, inserting herself in conversation as though she has a right to speak and be heard, no longer overlooked for having been shrouded in skirt, girdle and farthingale.

It is only difficult to remember that some day it must end, and she will wither away in silence once more.
