Tuesday: Names & Naming

Hello, everyone. I’m still draycevixen for those playing along at home. :D

Today's theme is Names & Naming. Prompts can be anything on this subject. Perhaps there's a really good explanation for why someone ended up being named Scunthorpe (it could happen). Perhaps someone has taken an alias or been "gifted" with a name by someone else. Then there's the matter of nicknames. You decide.

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...

Person of Interest, Harold Finch/John Reese, Harold wasn't the only one with an alias
Lucifer (TV), Lucifer Morningstar +/ any, He'd never had as much fun with his name as he's having in L.A.
Sleepy Hollow, Ichabod Crane /+ any, it's a difficult name to have in the 21st century

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.
