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...
+ Stargate Atlantis, John Sheppard +/ Any,
You tell me you're cold on the inside
How can the outside world
Be a place that your heart can embrace
(Heal the Pain, George Michael, 1990)
+ Prodigal Son, Malcolm Bright,
Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up
I think I'm cracking up
(Basket Case, Green Day, 1994)
+ Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tony Stark,
I’m too sexy for your party
Too sexy for your party
No way I’m disco dancing
(I’m Too Sexy, Right Said Fred, 1991)
+ Spooks | MI5, Any,
My mind is racing
As it always will
My hand's tired, my heart aches
I'm half a world away
(Half A World Away, R.E.M., 1991)
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 2016 collection. See further notes on this new option here.
