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.

Any, any, you use your heart as a weapon

No one had ever mentioned the notion to her and she'd neither heard it in passing nor from a friend in confidence, nor as instruction from anywhere or anyone.

She shouldn't be so surprised; she had been presented with example after example of a heart being so much more than a weakness, and in one shining case, it was a weapon to behold.

She wondered how best to begin using her own.

Once Upon a Time, Snow White, Chilled to the Heart

"You haven't forgotten, have you?" says Regina. "The curse blunts your mind, keeps you trapped in a futile, pathetic existence as my son's elementary school teacher, but your heart remembers. I've always hated that about you, Snow White – that warm, beating traitor heart of yours."

Regina reaches out with both hands and sinks her fingers up to the knuckles in Snow's chest – and Mary Margaret wakes in darkness, sheets twisted around her torso.

Her chest feels cold.

I love OUAT!Snow White--and Regina's troubled, layered relationship with her--to a throughly ridiculous degree, so this is absolutely lovely. Regina's rage, and Snow's loss when imprisoned in Mary Margaret's life, come across so clearly! ♥

The realization hits harder than Robin thinks it should.

“Ah, I get it now -- you’re in love with me!” he laughs, harsh and unforgiving, and oh, this is just too funny he can hardly breathe.

Ishiah’s silhouette has always been like crystal and glass, utterly perfect and reflective and terribly beautiful, and Robin knows his words come as a shock to them both; Ishiah’s frozen expression cracks, right down the center, and Robin laughs some more and raises his blade to stab that bastard right in the face.

Fill, Assassin's Creed, Ezio/Leo

"You are a dangerous man to be around, amore mio," Ezio murmured, threading fingers through golden strands of hair and nibbling an ear, "that heart of yours is sweet to taste but sharp as a spear."

"I cannot possibly be as dangerous as that, amore, for I do not know how to spear anyone's heart," Leonardo murmured.

"Maybe not consciously," Ezio acknowledged with a quick smile and a gentle kiss, "but I still cannot live without seeing you, feeling you, loving you; and all this from a man - an assassin - who never thought to let love in again."

Hard Core Logo, Joe/Billy: I play my part and you play your game

[personal profile] lexigent 2013-03-26 11:01 pm (UTC)(link)
It's some time past noon when Billy untangles himself from the scrappy motel bed, from Joe's grip that's been tight on him all night, like Joe's muscles haven't relaxed since they went to sleep, despite whatever they wereon last night (whatever it was, it was a fucking excellent idea last night, but now, not so much).

He stumbles to the john and back, his body crashing into Joe's on the bad mattress, but Joe's awake now, all tongue and hands and fingertips and damn Billy if he doesn't want to stay here and make out, make warmth, make love, for the rest of the day.

"Damn, you need a licence for that heart of yours," he murmurs, and Joe chuckles, but when Billy catches his eye he knows they both know it's only half a joke.
