✎ Today's theme: names. Why are names important? (Or not important?) Does a character like their birth name, or do they prefer a name they earned later in life? Are names something to be feared or considered a burden? Do names bring comfort or remind others of loved ones they've lost? Perhaps a couple of characters share a name but wear it very differently. However you want to look at it, prompts and fills should feature names today. Whether it's the name of a who or a where, please try to use proper nouns.
A few rules to keep in mind:
✦ No more than five prompts in a row per day
✦ No more than three prompts in the same fandom per day
✦ If one or more of your prompts is filled today, then you may prompt again
✦ Use the full names of the fandom(s) and character(s) in your prompts
✦ For prompts, no spoilers until one month after the release date (use a spoiler tag to hide part or all of the text)
✦ For fills, warn for spoilers, and either leave blank space before the text or hide the text under a spoiler tag
✦ Include a warning in the subject line for any possible triggers
Please remember to use the proper format for prompts.

Again, please include the full names of the fandom(s) and character(s). This makes it easier to add prompts to the Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet and to find prompts through manual search.
(Author's choice prompts and original fills are also more than welcome!)
For a single fandom:
✧ The Librarians, any or all of the team, the doors that open (or slam shut) thanks to the name Ezekiel Jones
✧ Final Fantasy VII, Rufus Shinra (+ or / any), the Shinra legacy
✧ author's choice, any, they've had many names in their life but they've become rather fond of this one
For multiple fandoms / crossovers:
✧ DC/Marvel (any 'verse), any of the Batman Family + any among Clint Barton + Remy LeBeau + Logan + Tony Stark, so many nicknames
We use 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 2019 collection. For more information, please go here.
A backup version of this community is available on Dreamwidth.
If the plot bunnies aren’t biting you today, feel free to check out our Lonely Prompts Spreadsheets (here and here) or the community's archive calendar. You can browse the main themed posts and Saturday free-for-all posts for prompts to fill (and fills to read). Or you can check the Sunday posts for requested prompts (and fills written that week). There's also LJ’s advanced search options -- however, it currently seems to only search entries posted in this community, not comments.
While the above are available options, the simplest method might be to bookmark prompts that you like as you find them and return later when inspiration strikes. (There are no rules against multiple fills for the same prompt, by the way. ~_^)
Have a nice weekend and take care! ❤
