Thursday: Random Word Count

Hello, everyone. It’s marlex for my penultimate day, and today the theme is Random Wordcounts. I like adding a bit of randomness when writing stories, and I’ve used a random number generator in several different ways over the years. is a nifty little site, and if you go there, right up top on the right side is a random number generator.

For today, prompts can be anything, but each prompt should come with a set wordcount (or multiples) which the story must match between 1 and 100.

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...
+ MCU, Darcy Lewis/Steve Rogers, secret relationship (91 words)
+ The Walking Dead, Beth Green/Daryl Dixon, wedding (23 words)
+ Lost, Claire Littleton/Charlie Pace, music (10 words)

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.
