Today's theme: dictionary definitions. The meaning of a word can be more inspiring than the word itself. Preferably, don't include the word anywhere in the prompt. That way, others can try to figure it out on their own.
Here are some online dictionaries for you to peruse:
A reminder of the rules:
✦ Use the full names of the fandom(s) and character(s) in your prompts
✦ No more than five prompts in a row per day
✦ No more than three prompts per fandom per day
✦ If one or more of your prompts is filled today, then you may prompt again
✦ Include a clear warning for any possible triggers in prompts and fills
✦ For prompts, no spoilers until one month after the airdate/release (use a spoiler tag to hide part or all of your prompt)
✦ For fills, warn for spoilers clearly, and either leave blank space before the text or hide the text under a spoiler tag
Please remember to use the proper format for prompts. ➤ ➤ ➤ Fandom [/ Crossover], Character [+ or / Relationship], Prompt
Again, please include the full names of the fandom(s) and character(s). This is so that unfilled prompts can be easily added to the Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet.
For a single fandom:
✧ Eureka, Jack Carter + or / Nathan Stark, (n.) an unlikely chance occurrence, especially a surprising piece of luck
✧ Fullmetal Alchemist, Roy Mustang + any other alchemists, (adj.) open, honest, and direct in speech or writing, especially when dealing with unpalatable matters
For multiple fandoms / crossovers:
✧ Devil May Cry/Resident Evil, Dante + or / Leon S. Kennedy (+ Vergil), (n.) a demand or request for something considered one’s due
We are now using AO3 to keep track of filled prompts. If you fill a prompt and (cross-)post it to AO3, please add your story to the Bite Sized Bits of Fic from 2015 collection. More information on this can be found here.
If the plot bunnies aren’t nipping at your heels today, feel free to check out our Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet (ever a work in progress). You can also find prompts to write (and fills to read) with LJ’s advanced search options by limiting keyword results to comments posted in this community.
While the Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet and LJ's advanced search are available options, the simplest method might be to bookmark prompts that you like as you find them, and then return to them later when inspiration strikes.
Go~ Be free~ :D
