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.

Yashiro is not the type to lay his hands on anything but the go ban. There, in black and white, he will call your bluff and start the war you were hoping to avoid. It is the one place that he will never back down.

Desmond would try so hard to succeed at the life forced upon him, but oh those chains, those strings attached to his arms and legs, they were made of unbreakable things: Of blood, metal, and wrath.

He used to think he would find a way to cut his binds, to escape and act on his own accord, but as expected, by all the people who brought him down, he had tried and he had failed.

Even as he was brought to the end of the world Desmond found; there was no true escape, no freedom, and if he thought about it, in those last precious seconds, he had always lived on a road of sacrifice--he was at the end and dying, it was as if he was always meant to perish on a pariahs path.

Yeong-ha is starting to learn some of the words they use, though he hasn't tried to study it, and hasn't let Su-yeong get away with using it when they aren't around. He will not bow in this or in anything. If they want to understand him and make themselves understood, they will bow.

Hikaru pushed through the crowds of people with a hint of a smile on his face because he should be seeing Kiyoharu any second now. He couldn't believe he'd never made the trip. He was tired from the trip and hungry for something that wasn't the broken crackers in the pocket of his backpack, but everything faded away when he glimpsed that shock of spiky platinum hair rising above everything else in view.

L is caught in a trap of his own making and he knows it. He is trying to wrest control of a situation from Kira who could be Light. And, yet, he cannot bring himself to wrest control from Light when it comes to such things as how wide his thighs are spread and how easily he yields to Light's mouth.

If reliving the lives of his ancestors taught Desmond anything, it was to fight for what is most important to you.

For Desmond his world was small--he did personally learn of strength through wisdom, of finding deceit in a beloved master's teachings, he did not personally know of true liberty, of love, and of time, when Ezio's family was cut down before him and he was raked with vengeance for years on end, and Desmond did not know of freedom fought for in times of uncertainty and through shades of grey when Connor both won the war, but lost everything he had cared for.

For Desmond, he tries to live up to the saying he learned in the beginning, that he heard over and over, Nothing is true, especially when in Desmond's heart it feels wrong, and everything is permitted--especially when one has to live with the consequences, be it simply life, or of death.

Kou doesn't question why Daisuke is always by his side. There are things that need answers like whether he's tall enough to do anything with his supposed basketball talent or whether he has the pocket change for Aiya after practice today. More important than the why is the simple existence of his presence.

[identity profile] saoirse7.livejournal.com 2013-03-17 12:55 am (UTC)(link)
He sees the troubled child that his brother is becoming, the anger and sarcasm building, and it hurts him to watch. But he doesn't know what to do, doesn't know what to say, and every time he attempts to reach out, Edmund bites out a harsh retort and won't listen. So the wedge is driven between them, to the point that it would take a miracle to ever restore the bond that was once there.

"Tell me when something hurts and I'll make it stop for you," Malik used to say when they were kids.

Malik always kept his word and no matter what the cause was, Kadar never felt much pain for long.

Now, though, when Kadar opens his mouth to say the words-- "It hurts, Brother"-- only blood comes out of his mouth and Malik just keeps crying and every part of Kadar keeps hurting until the time comes when he feels nothing at all.

Souji lifts his sword as high as he can, just barely holding on to consciousness. He holds on for Nanako, for the promise within the vial in Kanji's hand that is being run over to him, and even for his own pride. The thing letting him hold onto those intangible things is the ardent belief that Yosuke will be able to save him if the time comes that he truly needs saving.

He is so young, this man who measures his life in decades instead of centuries, a brief wisp of smoke that is there and then gone, a flower that blooms and fades—and yet she loves him, she loves him deeply and irrationally, loves him with all her centuries of age and youth and grief and joy. She studies the histories and learns her grandmother's stories of Valinor, but no one, not even Mithrandir, can explain the meaning of the Gift of Men. Perhaps—perhaps it would not be a cruel fate to go with Estel and unravel the riddle.

"You must allow Fanny the chance to grow," said Margaret; "she benefits from guidance." Her voice was gentle, but her expression forthright, as easy to interpret as a map.

Mr Thornton benefited from guidance as well, but he supposed it perhaps too forward to suggest he took pleasure in it also.

He is all feet and firm lines, walking in measured strides, his voice rising and falling with stress and inflection; she is lush with curves, dancing to her own wild pulse, sobbing and laughing with the heartbeat of voiceless humanity. One would not think such a pair could wed. Yet when their hands grope and find each other under cover of inky darkness, their union is a counterpoint like none other, each rising to meet the other's pleasure, rhythms and lines entwining until finally they are one.

"Can you not think what people would speculate were the Prince's widow to marry again?" Despite his assurance, George cannot meet his brother's eyes. "No; what's best for her--for all of us--is to live out her years with me and Isabel."

But Richard remembers Anne's smile, her quiet understanding, the delicate bones of her face; and, try as he might, he cannot agree.

It takes him off guard, sometimes, to look up in the midst of a discussion and see the awkward schoolgirl instead of the queen. And it hurts, sometimes, because he knows how hard she's trying to be what she once was.

(And he wishes, sometimes, that they'd all forget the past.)
