Today's theme is Unlucky Numbers.
This varies by culture: thirteen is considered unlucky across a large number of countries, including the US, UK, France, Netherlands, Germany, Norway, and Spain, but four is bad luck in Japan, Korea, and China, while in China, seven is also regarded with suspicion.
Which numbers do your characters consider unlucky and what does that mean for them?
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...
+ Hawaii Five-0, Danny Williams, (pre-series while still in New Jersey or as a flashback), Newark PD officers have some interesting habits...including on Det. Danny Williams and avoiding all things in groups of X number
+ The Librarians, Any Librarian(-in-Training), Cursed numbers
+ Any, Any, "Why is there no thirteenth floor?"
