Wednesday is the Introduction to the Opposites

Hello, everyone. It’s marlex once again, and today is the introduction to the Opposites. Now, if you’ve seen the 1980s Canadian TV show “You Can’t Do That On Television,” you know what today is all about. If not, don’t worry, let me explain. One of the aspects of that show was there was a point where everyone started acting the opposite of how you would expect. Parents encourage their kids to go to parties and ignore their chores, while the kids declare they would rather stay at home, do their homework and fold the laundry.

If yesterday was about situational opposites, today’s prompts should be about people acting the opposite of how they would normally. A cop is chasing a thief? Well, maybe the thief is now the cop and the cop is the thief. Or maybe the cop is tempted to do something bad and the thief tries to talk them out of it. As always, have fun with it.

Just a few rules:
No more than five prompts in a row.
No more than three prompts in the same fandom.
Use the character's full names and fandom's full name for ease adding to the Lonely Prompts spreadsheet.
No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing, or use the spoiler cut option found here.
If your fill contains spoilers, warn and leave plenty of space, or use the spoiler cut.
If there are possible triggers in your story, please warn for them in the subject line!

Prompts should be formatted as follows: [Use the character's full names and fandom's full name]
Fandom, Character +/ Character, Prompt

Some examples to get the ball rolling...
+ The Walking Dead, Beth Green/Daryl Dixon, AU in which Beth is a rough and tumble hunter and Daryl is a meek farm boy
+ any, any law enforcement officer & any criminal, finding themselves on the opposite sides of the law
+ Good Omens, Aziraphale +/ Crowley, Crowley tries to talk Airaphale out of doing something evil.

We use AO3 to bookmark filled prompts. If you fill a prompt and post it to AO3 please add it to the Bite Sized Bits of Fic from 2019 collection. See further notes on this new option here.

Not feeling any of today’s prompts? Check out Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet 1 (not very current), Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet 2, or the Calendar Archives, or for more recent prompts, you can use LJ's advanced search options to find prompts to request and/or fill.

While the Lonely Prompts Spreadsheets and LJ's advanced search options are available, bookmarking the links of prompts you like might work better for searching for in the future.
