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.

Narnia, Lucy and Peter (or Lucy/Peter), joy and strength

Peter is overjoyed to hear of The Gallant's most recent success against the Calormen navy. Lucy's most recent victory at sea only served to strengthen his position negotiating a peace treaty with the Tisroc.

I love that Lucy's ship is named the Gallant (:D), and that she is the one leading the charge in the naval battle, with the underlying implications that they're working as a team to achieve the ultimate goal of peace.

Tashbaan is hot (steaming) and close and tight, and Peter cannot help feeling more and more constricted (fighting to get out of his very skin), something he has never, ever felt in Narnia - not even in the midst of raging battle (because even there is a sort of freedom).

Even the simpering poetry and much-vaunted storytelling of this spiced (and perfumed, Oh, Aslan, the perfume is so cloying) place makes his chest tighten; he cannot relax against the oppressive pile of cushions all around him, and only barely manages to conceal the wince at the very next, "O the delight of my eyes..."

Peter glances at his siblings and as his eye catches Lucy's, he can suddenly breathe easier; she is smiling politely, a smirk gleaming in her eyes, and he realizes (conveniently setting aside the irony of the syrupy words) that she has always been and will always be his greatest delight.

WOW! You described the oppressive atmosphere and senses of Tashbaan so vividly, and caught Peter's reaction so perfectly in character. And then the ending made me nod and smile and melt all at once. Gorgeous. These two are not written often enough.

And YAY, thanks so much!

Quite late in responding, sorry - and thank you! I love making the scene as visible as I can, always have.

This is fantastic, especially the descriptions of Tashbaan and how completely un-Narnian it is in every way. Of course Peter feels stifled and out of place there. And then his description of Lucy at the end - so sweet!
