Today’s theme is Favorite Tropes, which are plots/plot devices used so often, they are almost immediately recognizable.
So turn an ugly duckling into a swan, fall in love with your best friend, or force your friends and enemies to work together for a common cause, but have fun!
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...
+ The Boondock Saints, Connor MacManus + Murphy MacManus, Good Cop/Bad Cop
+ Any, Any/Any, Meet Cute (e.g. they literally bump into each other in a coffee shop)
+ Harry Potter, Hermione Granger +/ Draco Malfoy, from Enemies to Friends and/or Lovers
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 2016 collection. See further notes on this new option here.
