Thursday: Dialogue only

Hi y’all, I’m canonisrelative and I'm excited that I have icons for 3/5 prompts today. I guess I could have used my BBC Sherlock icon for my ACD Holmes prompt, but I didn't want to confuse anyone.

But enough about me! Today's theme is Dialogue only. Tell a whole story in a conversation! Prompts can be anything but fills should contain only dialogue OR: write a scene in script form!

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...

+ Sherlock Holmes (Arthur Conan Doyle), Sherlock Holmes/John Watson, arguing over breakfast.
+ Supernatural, Sam Winchester + Dean Winchester, post-finale, Sam has conversations with his brother in his dreams.
+ Leverage, Alex Hardison/Parker/Eliot Spencer (OT3 or gen), grocery shopping.
+ The West Wing, any or ensemble, “It’s late.” “Technically, it’s early.”
+ The Martian (novel by Andy Weir or the movie), Mark Whatney + any, a conversation in messages between Mark on Mars and the Ares crew on Hermes.

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 2021 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.
