personal - facepalm

Thursday is for "This just in - Breaking News!"

Hello, everyone. I’m squidgiepdx and today's theme is breaking news! Prompts can be pretty much anything having to do with news or even just the media. Did someone find John and Rodney while they were in San Francisco and ask them about the newly uncovered documents that outed the SGC? Maybe Kevin shows up at a news conference where his husband, Captain Raymond Holt, is doing a briefing and it throws Captain Holt off. Or maybe it's an AU where Cisco is a news reporter and Harrison Wells his cameraman, and they accidentally stumble across the identity of The Flash. If it has to do with the news, we're there!

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...
+ Stargate Atlantis, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay, News breaks about the SGC location while John and Rodney are wandering around San Francisco
+ Brooklyn 99, Raymond Holt/Kevin Cozner, Kevin's presence at a news conference shakes the unshakeable Captain Holt
+ Donald Strachey Mysteries, Donald Strachey/Timothy Callahan, A reporter wants to interview Donald about being the most famous gay detective in New York

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 2018 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.
