Thrilling Thursday: Alternate Histories

Hello, everyone! I’m sherlockian_syn and this week is full of spooky themes! Today's theme is alternate histories. Prompts today should ask the question, what if? What if some things had turned out a little differently? What if a good person decided to break bad? What if a key person from a fandom's timeline went missing? I hope you have fun with this little twist on the concept of alternate universes!

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 above mentioned spoiler cut.

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...
+ Marvel Cinematic Universe, Steve Rogers +/ any, Steve fell off the train instead of Bucky
+ Sherlock, Sherlock Holmes +/ any, Sherlock is the criminal mastermind
+ Stargate Atlantis, any, encountering their counterpart from a parallel universe

We are now using 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 Spreadsheet and LJ's advanced search options are available, bookmarking the links of prompts you like might work better for searching for in the future.
