Monday: Whump

Hello, everyone. I’m cornerofmadness and for the next two weeks it’s all about the tropes. I plucked some pretty well used ones and mixed them up with some that maybe aren’t used quite as much. I hope you enjoy. Today's theme is Whump. Fanlore defines it as The term whump (or whumping) generally refers to a form of Hurt/Comfort that is heavy on the hurt and often focuses on gen stories. Whumping should not be confused with character bashing. Prompts can be any of your faves getting hurt, which let’s be honest a lot of them are really good at this.

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...
+ Prodigal Son, Malcolm Bright + team, Malcolm finds yet another creative way to get hurt on the job
+ Angel the series, Connor + any, the demon hit a lot harder than Connor expected
+ Prodigal Son, Malcolm Bright + Gil Arroyo (and/or his mother and sister), his first bout of self harm

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 2020 collection. See further notes on this new option here.

Not feeling any of today’s prompts? Check out the just created Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet. For more recent prompts to write, you can also use LJ’s advanced search options to limit keyword results to only comments in this community.

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.
