Tuesday's post may require postage for that letter!

Hello, everyone. I’m squidgiepdx and today's theme is Postage, Please! Prompts can be anything that has to do with getting or receiving a letter, business or professional - or even just a note or an email communication. Maybe someone unexpectedly gets a "Dear John" letter, or maybe you'd like to write an epistolic fic between two characters. Whatever you'd like - if it has to do with written communication (paper or electronic), then let's type it up and go!

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...
+ due South, Benton Fraser/Ray Kowalski, Post CotW, Ray and Fraser are living in Canada, and it's a chore to have to go get the mail.
+ Stargate Atlantis, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay, Rodney leaves little notes around their quarters when he knows he's going to be busy with work.
+ Hawaii Five-0, Steve McGarrett/Danny Williams, Steve gets a letter from someone in Danny's family - what could it be?

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.
