So, I had a fun idea, and enough people (read: one person, but I was already about 80% certain I was going to do it) encouraged me that I decided to go ahead with it.

Next weekend, I'll be hosting the First-Ever Crossover Porn Battle Spectacular here, hurrah! So the first thing I need, obviously, is prompts! This post will be for making prompt suggestions, and when I put up the post, I'll have the final list there. I'll update the list-in-progress here every few days, and will post a master prompt list when the battle itself kicks off.

RPF is allowed, m/m and f/f are allowed, threesomes and more-somes are allowed... pretty much anything but young children is allowed, really -- anything under 16ish is sticky territory, let's say (and not the fun kind of sticky), so keep it above 16, and preferably above 18. Also, the works whose creators have explicitly said they're not okay with fanfiction (Anne Rice, for example) are obviously off-limits.

Prompts should take the following format: fandoms, characters, prompty phrase. A quick list to get everyone started...

Battlestar Galactica/Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Six/Kira Nerys, vision
Firefly/Pirates of the Caribbean, Norrington/Kaylee, flower
Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Firefly, Buffy/Jayne, drinking game
Angel/DCU, Cissie/Cordelia, girls' night out

Add as many to this post as you like, in separate batches of comments or altogether. The important thing is to get lots and lots of comments.

I tried to think of some way to incorporate snakes into this week's challenge, in honor of Snakes on a Plane, but alas, no joy. It does involve travel, though, so maybe you guys can figure something out. &grin;

This week's challenge is concerned with the wonders of the world: the 'official' list as compiled by Antipater of Sidon, and more informal lists as well. The challenge is to incorporate one of these into your ficlet -- if the site isn't the setting of the ficlet itself, it must be mentioned by name.

All of these lists come from Wikipedia, where you can, of course, also find information about the sites in question.

The lists!Collapse )

Okay, apologies for the weirdness (eg, the lack of any challenge last weekend and the lateness of this one -- again, we'll go until Tuesday; in fact, maybe I'll just make it Friday through Tuesday instead of Thursday through Monday).

This week's challenge: haiku ficlets!

The haiku is a Japanese poetic form which is, most simply, three lines: the first five syllables, the second seven, and the third five. Further, however, the haiku contains seasonal words -- not necessarily just the names of the four seasons, but clues which give the time away (harvest, blossoms, snow, cicadas, for example). The focus is on sensory experience -- there is rarely, if ever, abstract language in a haiku.

The haiku ficlet has the same rules for content -- concrete sensory imagery rather than abstract references to emotions or concepts, seasonal clues. It's structured as three paragraphs: the first fifty words, the second seventy, and the third fifty.

Have fun!

Ordinarily, the challenges will go until Monday night, but ordinarily, they'll be going up Thursday night. So this one will be running until Tuesday night, just to make up for it.

All ficlets should go in the comments to this post. Any fandom, any content, any pairing, etc; just include, in the subject line of your comment, the fandom, pairing (if applicable), rating, and prompt you're using. For example: BtVS; Buffy/Fred; R; Cherry Lemonade.

For the first weekend, the prompt list consists of the names of various Urban Decay products (I've found cosmetics to be awesome inspiration in the past). I've left some out which I thought might be too vague, specific, or easy ("Kiss" and "Gotham", as a couple of examples). Use these in any way you feel inclined to do -- as the title, working them in some way, working in some interpretation of the word, whatever.

And go!Collapse )
