On Random Mondays, We Hit Up the Random AO3 Tags

Hello, everyone. I’m squidgiepdx and because I've got a weekend hangover and don't want to admit it's a Monday of a shortened (US) holiday week, we're gonna keep it random. Random AO3 tags that is. Prompts can be anything that's chosen from the AO3 - be it a tag that you use all the time, or a random tag generator that can be found by clicking here. It may take you a few times to find the right thing, or maybe on the first try you'll hit the word 'burrito' and think that yes - my OTP needs to make eyes at each other over a burrito platter, because why not? Or maybe you want to drop the characters from Grimm into a 'Great British Bake-Off Fusion' story. Or perhaps a third character is watching John and Rodney from Stargate Atlantis and mutters something about them being 'Idiots In Love'. Yes, all of those are tags on AO3. So choose your favorite AO3 tags, or even just select some from the AO3 random tag generator and prompt away!

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...
+ Hawaii Five-0, Steve McGarrett/Danny Williams, 'burrito'
+ Grimm, Ensemble, 'Great British Bake Off Fusion'
+ Stargate Atlantis, Anyone + John Sheppard/Rodney McKay, 'Idiots in Love'

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.
