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.

"Be honest," Quatre says as he turns away from the mirror, "How do I look?"

Trowa can't help a small smile as he steps forward and straightens the collar of the other man's shirt. He blushes lightly when Quatre kisses his cheek in thanks.

Wires, blinking lights, and technological doodads scatter the floor around the pair as they work on creating, as Claudia put it, "The best damn GPS this Warehouse has ever seen."

Arty runs his eyes across the mess, preparing to unleash a lecture about the importance of keeping this part of the warehouse presentable, at least - until someone forcefully pulls him to the side.

"Wha-?" he begins, before Myka threatens in a whisper, "Don't you dare interrupt them, or I'll tell Dr. Vanessa!"

People call them soft. The "soft sciences," with condescension dripping from every letter, but History pays them no heed.

She knows that she, with her eons of weaponry and wartime tactics, and Linguistics, with her sharp words carefully picked from the centuries, are nothing like soft.

He tries hard not to linger to long on the close cropped curls on his old adversary’s head, now iron gray as if to proclaim his true profession, and instead takes another sip of his wine. Hannibal stretches himself sedately on the triclinium but his tongue is as sharp as he remembers.
When the first of the living dead come down the corridor they do not waver but grab a gladius each and wait side by side for the first to reach them.

Altair thinks he will return and in time, will pray he does in time. Malik trusts him, and though he hasn't always, he will until the end.

But now they put their hands on each other's shoulders, temple leaning against cheek, and close their eyes when they say, "Safety and peace."

Assassin's Creed, Shaun Hastings/Desmond Miles, darkness
holly_jolly: (Default)

[personal profile] holly_jolly 2013-03-15 02:23 am (UTC)(link)
Desmond isn't leading the way through the darkness when Shaun and the others stumble back to safety.

It's uncanny, illogical, and stupid, but Shaun feels as if the the unknown is closing in, that somehow it's different from what he has felt before when he can barely see a hand in front of his face.

There is fear; even when Desmond knows his choice to touch the shining pedestal is one of sacrifice, it burns him, crawling up his arm, into his heart, it's wrong, she lied, it hurts-- but Desmond smiles and there is not a single ounce of peace within the void that follows.

Desmond runs, fast and far, losing himself in New York, in a normal life, or some facsimile of it, and he thinks he's finally gotten far enough to be safe. He throws himself at life, living to the fullest for as long as he can.

When Abstergo finds him, he starts to realize that no matter how far he runs, it will never be far enough.

"Why can't we ever just have a conversation?" Tara pants, angry still even as her limbs shake with the after-effects of Faith's fingers.

"Babe, I don't mean to be rude, but everything that comes out of your mind bores the shit out of me."

Tara grabs a handful of dark hair and pulls it, hard; their teeth clash, because Faith is laughing.

[personal profile] bedlamsbard 2013-03-15 01:19 am (UTC)(link)
Natasha always thought she knew monsters, because somewhere, at the core of her, beneath the layers of her skin, she thought of herself as one. Clint always thought of himself as the guy who caught monsters, but those were the kind of monsters that wore human faces. These ones, the kind they hunt now in the company of gods and heroes, are something else entirely.

Turning his head to look behind, Seamus isn't surprised to see Luna walking towards them, her smile for Dean the same one she wore walking down the aisle. What's that she's got in her hair?

Conversations tend to dip into the bizarrely philosophical on late nights, but once, and only once, Shaun looks up from his computer and, quickly glancing at the animus, asks Rebecca, "You think it's all right, for a man to bear the burdens of three more lifetimes than he's probably supposed to?"

Rebecca smiles, wry, and because they both know the answer, she replies, "What's that, Shaun? Is that a bit of big ol' squishy heart I see under all those V-necks?"

Desmond finds out the hard way that whoever said your life passes before your eyes before you die is a fucking liar. In the precious few seconds between touching the pedestal and death, what Desmond actually sees is everything he'll never be; a father, a lover, a mentor, an old man, someone who will be remembered.

As he crumbles to the floor, Desmond can feel the man he could have been die right along side him.

“You miss the point entirely,” sniff those wrapped in lion skins, seated high above. “You're ruining the story.”

Those wearing the leaves of dryads and the skin of nature turn their backs and huddle close, extending leafy fingers and branches out until they form a circle, and all that grows within is peace, and harmony, and joy.

(No disrespect meant to Aslan, just some of his more...overzealous fans. Also, I just love you guys so much.)

Her hands are strong and warm, the muscles of her body firm. He's watched her kill with them, seen them shake with fear of him, of what he could do to her.

It's never easy to tell what she's thinking, but he knows that she is giving him something very real and very important simply by holding his hand right now, and he wishes he knew how to thank her for it.
