Silent Monday

Hey, everybody! It’s ohmanishipitthis week and this is my first time hosting so please bear with me, to start us off our theme is silence. Prompts can be content silence, a moment of silent mourning, an awkward pause or a ‘you’d better shut up so I can watch this’ silence. Whatever you want.

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.

If your prompt or fill contains anything that can be a trigger for the reader, please add a warning for that to give the reader the chance to decide if they want to read or not.

No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing. 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...

+ Red vs Blue, Richard Simmons + or / Dexter Grif, “Your name is ‘Richard’!?” “Yes, how did you not know that? You call me ‘Dick’ all the time…” “...” “...”

+ Any, ensemble, this was way too awkward

+ Any, any lgbt character, the silence that ensues after your coming out speech is completely nerve-wracking

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 2016 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.

Mod Post

There is something that has been brought to my attention twice in a relatively short amount of time that needs to be addressed.

The claiming or calling bibs of prompts.

That is not done here.

All prompts, be they lonely or already filled, are open to be filled by anyone at any time.

If there is a prompt you plan on filling, but don't have the time, bookmark the link to the prompt and by all means, come back to it later.

There have been very few issues within the community, and for that I'm glad and want to thank members who have been here for a long time, for helping to keep it running smoothly while I'm not around.

If there is anything else that you are confused about or have concerns about, feel free to comment to the sticky guest host post or send me a private message. I'm really good at replying to them within 24 hours.
