It's Thursday, and ::AO3 tag:: you're it!

Hello, everyone. I’m squidgiepdx and today's theme is gonna be more random than usual. Why? Because 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 one click or maybe a few times to find the right thing, because why isn't there a story about Sherlock Holmes and John Watson meeting at the 'Winter Olympics'? Or maybe Danny Williams runs a store and complains about 'Bikers' when a leather-clad Steve McGarrett rides up on his motorcycle to investigate. Or how about a first time fic with John Sheppard and Rodney McKay, with the only prompt being 'Thighs'? Rowr! It can be done! So log in, 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...
+ Check Please, Eric "Bitty" Bittle/Jack Zimmerman "Hockey"
+ Hawaii Five-0, Steve McGarrett/Danny Williams, "Bikers"
+ Stargate Atlantis, Evan Lorne/Any (David Parrish preferred), "Ectoplasm"

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.
