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.

Lion King (1994), Simba, reluctant hero

[personal profile] bedlamsbard 2013-03-23 12:35 am (UTC)(link)
After the stampede -- after the seemingly endless expanse of the desert, after Timon and Pumbaa and hakuna matata -- Simba had never dared let himself think about coming back to Pride Rock, triumphantly or otherwise. Run away and never come back had whispered in his head every time his mind even strayed close to the idea, and after all these years he's used to shying away from the thought. So coming back isn't like something out of an idle daydream or a story: it just is.

"Hello, Cousin; what can I help you with?" Edmund said as he smiled down at the animal waiting for an audience with the king.

"He spoke to me!" the Goat managed before falling to the ground and lying there, until a second later he got back up, ready to talk.

Edmund tried to cover his surprise and amusement at the animal's behaviour long enough to hear him out, but it was taking every shred of control he had not to burst into laughter when, every time the king would say something mildly startling, the Goat would keel over once more.

"Yes," Bruce said, sighing into his drink, "this was a great idea, Clint, I appreciate it."

"She did say she wanted to let off some steam," Clint said, unconcerned; he ducked down a little as a body came sailing over him, just enough that they didn't collide, and nodded to himself in satisfaction, sipping his own drink.

"Yes, but somehow I thought there were other ways to handle that than start a bar brawl for her," Bruce said, then snorted when Clint looked far too interested, "although apparently this method is more appealing -- you know, you could at least go help her --" but he gave up when Clint just gave him an incredulous look.

He considers, once, what it would mean to ask Priam for his daughter's hand (as a mere hypothetical exercise), outlines in his mind the endless negotiations of what Dardania might bring to the alliance and what Troy might grant in return, prepares his vows of eternal love for their princess. That would be the easy part, of course; far more difficult would be explaining his choice of bride to his father, declaring with an assurance he did not feel that her madness would not pass on to their children, praying as he presented his wife to his countrymen that one of her strange fits would not overtake her--far more difficult, and far more painful.

Later that night, he asks Cassandra for nothing more than her company at dinner.

anthropomorphic, purse, look what she's done now

(Anonymous) 2013-03-23 06:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Look what she's done now, the horror of it all! As if it were not bad enough that she should leave me sitting slumped and gaping open on the floor by her feet, displaying my treasures for all but herself to see, an appallingly bold invitation for her to forget me if some other does not steal me first, oh no, then she also had to go and pay absolutely no attention to either the placement of her freshly delivered mug upon the table or the movement of her own elbows. Pray that you learn from this great tragedy, please, because it is thus that I have failed in my vow to protect that poor, defenseless little smartphone with my life, and I will never be able to hide my shame, for it will now be proclaimed for all to know by the overpowering scent of cheap coffee, which shall linger in my lining forever more.

[personal profile] mardypants 2013-03-23 07:34 pm (UTC)(link)
First out the orchard gate that morning was a very strange young woman in a soldier's doublet and little else, fleeing from the direction of the guests' quarters and shrieking curses most unseemly.

Hot on her heels was none other than Signior Benedick, rubbing a purple stain from his eyes with his nightcap and shouting after the girl with improvised love-oaths and rhymes even more unseemly.

From their vantage behind a crabapple tree, the Lady Beatrice and her newfound friend shared a congratulatory fistbump, careful not to bruise either flower that the other held, the purple or the white.

"No idea, but it's probably some Northern thing. Shasta, do you know?"

"Well, Aravis, there is the fact that you had your dress on backwards the whole time."

home from a terrible dream

[personal profile] edenfalling 2013-03-26 04:53 am (UTC)(link)
They fall out of Time, a single moment of despairing fury stretched thin and taut across all eternity, for there is no longer any possibility of change, or regathering, or fruition: nothing but an endless, clawing void, the true vacuum never found in the natural world. The White Rider hears her brother scream, and scream, and scream, one breath caught forever in disharmony with her own, and she cannot grow accustomed to the sound, or tired of it, or even aware of how long they have been screaming.

John, you fool, I would have made you king, she thinks, and thinks, and thinks again, one final point of consciousness crystallized in pain and horror's amber as she falls; she has made him immortal after all, and amidst her breathless, endless scream she almost draws breath to laugh.

"Moreover and lastly, your worship, had we only been more rather than less exhibitionist in our earlier recriminations of the prince's henchmen...." Dogberry trails off, twisting his hat in his hands as if hoping to wring a suitable apology out of it, finally blurting out, "Know that it was never our pretension to exasperate the situation!"

"Exacer--" Antonio starts to say, but Leonato expeditiously and quite intentionally waves him quiet.
