Monday: Poetry

Hi there! I'm your host for the week, beckonade, and today's theme is poetry. All prompts should be either poems or quotes from poems. If the poem you'd like to use as a prompt is long enough to be unwieldy, feel free to simply provide a link to it.

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 Magicians, Margo/Alice, spangled is the earth with her crowns (Sappho)
+ Into the Badlands, Sunny/Quinn, this hour it is not / your body I want / but your quiet company (Michale Ondaatje)
+ The Librarians, Cassandra/Estrella, Wild nights - Wild nights! / Were I with thee / Wild nights should be / Our luxury! (Emily Dickinson)

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 2017 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.
