Point 1: I am making good progress with my WIP Big Bang fic, but it is A) LONG and B) going to need heavy revisions once I do reach the end. I will not get the gratification of posting it and receiving feedback for another whole month.

Point 2: I am not terribly good at delayed gratification.

Solution: Mini-ficlet prompt meme time!

You know the basic drill by now, yes? Pick a square from one of my prompt bingo cards (or what the heck, let's be flexible: for this round, I will also take random words/phrases of your choice!), add one to three characters plus a scenario, and I will write you a ficlet of at least... mmm... let's say 250 words.

Here is my Genprompt Bingo card. For those who prefer lists to graphics, the open squares are: Midnight, Pipes and Beer, Fundamental Particles, Introspection, Light-Hearted, Holiday Cottages, Heart on Sleeve, WILD CARD, Suicide, Another Year Older: Birthdays, Three Wishes, The Age of Reason, Steadfast, Second Person Narration, Space AU, Takeout, Apocalypse

For those who are okay with single-fandom prompts, I also have a Daredevil Bingo card, though past experience suggests most of you don't share that fandom with me, alas. But I will totally write for those prompts... except role reversal or AU: A/B/O squares, since I have plans for those which I will get to in due time, mwahahahaha.

And I have one remaining Cotton Candy Bingo square -- free -- which I am offering since I am still jammed up on the fill I've been trying to write and it would be nice to finally get the card blacked out. (That prompt gets you a minimum of 500 words, because of that challenge's rules.)

Once again, please leave a comment with one to three characters, a prompt from one of my bingo cards (or a word/phrase of your own inspiration!), and a scenario, and I will write you a ficlet of at least 250 words.

-----

Obligatory small print:

1. I reserve the right to veto any fandoms I don't know well enough to write, and ask you to please try again.

2. Crossover prompts are fine. On the vanishingly unlikely chance anyone wants to read a snippet from any of my original worlds and stories, that kind of prompt is also fine.

3. In the Genprompt Bingo challenge, WILD CARD means to grab any prompt from the complete Round 12 prompt list. I reserve the right to veto any such wild card substitutions and ask you to please try again.

4. Genprompt Bingo fills do not have to be gen! (The 'gen' refers to the squares, which do not automatically presuppose shipping.) Just be aware that I'm not great at romance, so if you request shipfic, it will come out fairly low-key and may end up as ambiguous gen anyway.

2. How Easy All Can See: How about this: Ilgamuth/Shezan, "heart on sleeve", Shezan has just heard of the defeat at Anvard (really, I'd be happy with anything at all about Shezan and Ilgamuth!) Written 7/28/17 for [archiveofourown.org profile] priscipixie. (1,200 words)

I am jammed up on the projects I need to finish -- if you think this is deeply frustrating, you would be correct -- and would like to unstick myself via some short prompt!fic.

So. Mini-ficlet prompt meme time!

Here is my Genprompt Bingo card.

For those who prefer lists to graphics, the open squares are Northern / Southern Lights, Midnight, Extraordinary, Pipes and Beer, Fundamental Particles, Butcher / Baker / Candlestick-maker: Tradesman, Introspection, Light-Hearted, Holiday Cottages, Heart on Sleeve, WILD CARD, Suicide, Another year older: Birthdays, Monsoon, Three Wishes, The Age of Reason, Steadfast, Trust, Second Person Narration, Space AU, Takeout, Apocalypse.

If you would like to claim any of the open squares, please leave a comment with one to three characters, a prompt from the card, and a scenario, and I will write you a ficlet of at least 100 words.

Obligatory small print:

1. I reserve the right to veto any fandoms I don't know well enough to write, and ask you to please try again.

2. Crossover prompts are fine. On the vanishingly unlikely chance anyone wants to read a snippet from any of my original worlds and stories, that kind of prompt is also fine.

3. In this challenge, WILD CARD means to grab any prompt from the complete Genprompt Bingo prompt list. I reserve the right to veto any such wild card substitutions and ask you to please try again.

4. Requests do not have to be gen! Just be aware that I'm not great at romance, so if you request shipfic, it will come out fairly low-key and may end up as ambiguous gen anyway.

-----

Also, special offer! If you have scenarios I could used to fill the last two squares on my Cotton Candy Bingo card -- the prompt words in question are 'soft' and 'free' -- I will write you a ficlet of at least 500 words. (I have ficlets I'm trying to write for both of those, but they have been stuck for a while, so I'm game to take suggestions that might end up flowing better.)

Fill List:

1. Whose Allegiance Is Ruled by Expedience - 1,600 words. How about the tradesman for an OC view on some part of the Naruto story line? Written 5/22/17 for [personal profile] the_rck. [Tumblr crosspost; AO3 crosspost]

2. I Am the One Who Lives with the Ocean - 700 words. Calliope/Roxy, having a cuddlepile on Earth C after all the fireworks have died down. Basically, what we can do now that we don't have to do anything. Written 6/4/17 for [personal profile] mme_hardy. [Tumblr version; AO3 version]

I do not have the time or the mental/emotional spoons to write anything long until May (and what I do have in that vein is spoken for), but one of the best ways to fight depression is to create stuff.

So... I am running a mini-ficlet prompt meme. :)

Rules are as follows:

Here is my Genprompt Bingo card, and here is my Daredevil Bingo card.

For those who prefer lists to graphics, the open Genprompt Bingo squares are: Northern / Southern Lights, Midnight, Extraordinary, Pipes and Beer, Fundamental Particles, Butcher / Baker / Candlestickmaker: Tradesman, Introspection, Light-Hearted, Holiday Cottages, Heart on Sleeve, Grooming (Brushing / Braiding Hair, Painting Nails, etc.), It was a Decoy / Feint / Distraction, WILD CARD, Suicide, Another year older: Birthdays, Monsoon, Three Wishes, Science and Magic, The Age of Reason, Steadfast, Trust, Second Person Narration, Space AU, Takeout, Apocalypse.

The open DD Bingo squares are: ninjutsu, balcony scene, anonymous source, Braille, accidental injury (physical or emotional), it's a start, redemption, grappling, officer of the law, miscommunication, WILD CARD, All Saints, go be a hero, lightweight, confession, AU: pirates, identity porn, eskrima/arnis/kali, libel, order in the court, without fear, time travel (to the past), Mike. (You cannot claim the 'role reversal' or 'AU: A/B/O' squares, since I have plans for those which I will get to in due time.)

If you would like to claim any of the open squares, please leave a comment with one to three characters, a prompt from one of the cards, and a scenario, and I will write you a ficlet of at least 100 words.

-----

Notes:

1. I reserve the right to veto any fandoms I don't know well enough to write, and ask you to please try again.

2. In these challenges, WILD CARD means to grab any prompt from the complete list. Here is the Genprompt Bingo list and here is the DD Bingo list. I reserve the right to veto any such wild card prompt substitutions and ask you to please try again.

3. Genprompt Bingo fills do not have to be gen. The 'gen' in the challenge just means that none of the prompts presuppose any kind of romantic or sexual relationships.

-----

(Also, special one-time offer! If you have a really good scenario I could used to fill the last unclaimed square on my Cotton Candy Bingo card -- the prompt word in question is 'cute' -- I will write you a ficlet of at least 500 words. I keep drawing a complete blank when facing that prompt, and would greatly appreciate any suggestions.)

Fill List:

1. ) Foundlings - 1,175 words. I think something with Finn, Rey, & BB8 for your "cute" cotton candy square would be awesome. *g* Written 4/5/17 for [personal profile] musesfool. [Tumblr crosspost; AO3 crosspost]

2. ) Transition State - 400 words. For the "science and magic" prompt: Star Trek: The Next Generation/Sandman. When Data begins to use his dream program, he encounters Morpheus, who welcomes him as the first non-biological life-form to enter the Dreaming.

On the quite possibly crazy theory that more pressure is better than less pressure (it concentrates my mind), it is once again mini-ficlet prompt meme time!

The rules this time are a little complicated, so bear with me:

Option 1! Here is a link to my open Cotton Candy Bingo card, which still has six unfilled squares. For those who prefer lists to graphics, the open prompts are: picnic, soft, eyes, cute, cuddle, free.

If you would like to claim one of these squares, leave a comment with one to four characters, a prompt word from the list, and a scenario, and I will write you a ficlet of at least 500 words.

Note: Scenarios must be fluffy, but my definition of fluff is flexible. As long as the characters end the ficlet on a happy note, we're good. Anyway, if you have ever wanted a sequel to one of my oneshots, or another installment in any of my series/AUs, this is your chance to make me write it for you. :)

-----

Option 2! Here is a link to my Daredevil Bingo card, which I have not started to work on at all. You cannot claim the role reversal or AU: A/B/O squares because I have very specific ideas for them, but the other twenty-three squares are up for grabs. For those who prefer lists to graphics, the open prompts are: ninjutsu, balcony scene, anonymous source, Braille, accidental injury (physical or emotional), it's a start, redemption, grappling, officer of the law, miscommunication, WILD CARD, All Saints, go be a hero, lightweight, confession, AU: pirates, identity porn, eskrima/arnis/kali, libel, order in the court, without fear, time travel (to the past), Mike.

If you would like to claim one of these squares, leave a comment with one to four characters, a prompt word from the list, and a scenario, and I will write you a Daredevil (MCU) ficlet that is at least three sentences and/or 100 words long.

Note: in this challenge, WILD CARD means to grab any prompt from the list, though be aware that if you pick something from the 'kink' category, chances are very high that I will veto and tell you to try again.

-----

Obligatory small print: Crossover prompts are fine! I reserve the right to reject fandoms I am not familiar with and produce ambiguous gen when attempting to write shipfic. Also, if someone else has previously claimed your requested prompt word, I will notify you and offer you a chance to make a new prompt.
edenfalling: colored line-art drawing of a three-scoop ice cream sundae (ice cream sundae)
Okay so.

I am stuck like a stuck thing on "Guardian" ch. 17 scene 3 (not because I don't know what comes next; I just... can't make the words happen). I can't manage to focus on "The Courting Dance" instead (because guilt? tone mismatch? who even knows; brains are weird), and when I try to avoid the issue and write something completely unrelated, I just kind of blank out, like those two fics are gnawing away all the processing power that would normally go to the part of my brain that comes up with new ideas and/or picks an old idea and says 'your time in the sun has come, small plotbunny!'

I think you see where I am going with this, yes? Yes. It is once again mini-ficlet prompt meme time, because when I can't jumpstart my own creativity, I beg other people to do it for me. (Because it works. Why? Who knows. See above in re: brains being weird.)

The caveat this time is that I want to write fluff!

Here is a link to my open Cotton Candy Bingo card, which still has sixteen unfilled squares. For those who prefer lists to graphics, the open prompts are: picnic, soft, sleepwalking/sleeptalking, tradition, the little things, names/naming, WILD CARD, eyes, favorite, adventure/quest, color, open, cute, cuddle, free, sunrise/sunset.

Leave a comment with one to four characters, a prompt word from the list, and a scenario, and I will write you a ficlet of at least 500 words. Scenarios must be fluffy!

(...Look, I know my definition of fluff can get pretty idiosyncratic. But work with me here, okay? If the characters end the ficlet on a happy note, we're good.)

Anyway, if you have ever wanted a sequel to one of my oneshots, or another installment in any of my series/AUs, this is your chance to make me write it for you. :)

[Obligatory small print: Crossover prompts are fine! I reserve the right to reject fandoms I am not familiar with and produce ambiguous gen when attempting to write shipfic.

I have a scenario and backstory and some general world-building for my Palestuck fic. I have a kinda-sorta outline. I have a couple of key emotional beats, and an intertwined action and character arc/plot thingywhatsit.

And I have no fucking clue whose POV I should be in, let alone whether I should be trying to write in second or third person.

*headdesk*

You know what, screw this. I am going to do a mini-ficlet prompt meme after all, because desperate times call for desperate measures, and maybe if I kickstart myself into finishing something it will make my other projects flow better thereafter.

So.

Leave a comment with one to three characters plus a mood, a scenario, or a prompt word, and I will write you a ficlet that is at least three sentences and/or 100 words long.

(Obligatory small print: Crossover prompts are fine. On the vanishingly unlikely chance anyone wants to read a snippet from any of my original worlds and stories, that kind of prompt is also fine.

I am having serious trouble working up motivation to write, which is frustrating. Like, I will open a document, check where I was in the story, type maybe five words, and... nothing. Blank. It's particularly annoying if I've been mentally juggling and arranging ideas earlier in the day so I know roughly where I want to go and just can't quite get there once I am actually trying to type letters on a keyboard.

One thing that I've found helpful in the past when I've had trouble writing is to switch gears and write something completely different, and also -- this is the key part -- something with an external rather than internal pressure/reward system. Like prompt!fic.

So.

Give me one to three characters plus a mood, a scenario, or a prompt word, and I will write you a ficlet that is at least three sentences or 100 words long.

Help me out, please?

FYI, I'm doing a three-sentence prompt meme over on Tumblr tonight. Give me the name of a character or pairing and I'll write a three-sentence fic about them.

Prompts can be left either in my Tumblr askbox or in a comment to this post. :-)

(Disclaimer: I reserve the right to refuse prompts for fandoms I don't know well enough to write. Fills may not be exactly three sentences.)
