Prompts can be any music lyrics and song titles from 2010 to today! You can have them on the radio, the characters singing them or just plain use them for inspiration/make them part of the dialogue. However you want to tackle it. The character themselves don’t have to be from a 21st century show but the lyrics do.
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, Jessica Whitly + any, As I lay me down to sleep
I pray the memories won’t find me
Hit the bottle, hit the pills, trying anything (My Little Secret, Citizen Soldier)
+ Buffyverse, any female No damsel in distress, don't need to save me
Once I start breathin' fire, you can't tame me (Kings and Queens Ava Max),
+ any any Get lucky (Daft Punk)
+ Prodigal Son, Malcolm Bright + any It's time to surrender to myself and crawl out of this hell
The battles in my head, there is nobody else
Ooh this is world war me
Ooh I will never find peace (World War Me, Theory of a Dead Man)
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 2021 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.
