Here is the list of past prompts for which you may post stories during the months of January, March, April, June, July, September, October and December.

I shall keep it up to date as we finish each promptathon and sticky post it. Thus it will always be the first post, which means you only have to visit the community to find the list of prompts.



LINKS TO PAST PROMPTATHONS

A few general points:

  • Remember: The whole point of this Community is that it is 'Love for the over 40s'. Therefore it it imperative that EACH half of the pairing is 40+ in the story - it doesn't matter if they are 20, 30 or 45 in canon. in the story/piece of artwork they MUST be at least 40.

  • Where a pairing and a prompt is given you must use that pairing with the prompt.

  • Where only a prompt is given, you can use any pairing within the fandom.

  • What you cannot do is to take a prompt from one fandom and use it for another. The prompt must be used within the specific fandom; and if a pairing is listed for that specific pairing.

  • The prompts under 'Any Fandom & Any Pairing' are just that. They don't have to be a fandom already listed; they can be any fandom at all.

  • Posting guidelines can be found here.

    Promptathon #26 is now officially closed - apologies for the day late posting.

    Sadly, we didn't actually get any stories this time :-(



    The next promptathon will be in February 2017.

    The prompts for Promptathon 26 are now available as Amnesty prompts and you may once again post stories for any past prompt.

    Firstly, thank you to those of you who submitted prompts for our twenty-sixth promptathon.

    A few general points:

  • Remember: The whole point of this Community is that it is 'Love for the over 40s'. Therefore it it imperative that EACH half of the pairing is 40+ in the story - it doesn't matter if they are 20, 30 or 45 in canon. in the story/piece of artwork they MUST be at least 40.

  • The prompts are broken down firstly by fandom and then into blocks within the fandom of specific pairings and no pairing/one half of the pairing and just prompts.

  • Where a pairing and a prompt is given you must use that pairing with the prompt.

  • Where only a prompt is given, you can use any pairing within the fandom.

  • What you may not do is to take a prompt from one fandom and use it for another. The prompt must be used within the specific fandom; and if a pairing is listed for that specific pairing.

  • The prompts under 'Any Fandom & Any Pairing' are just that. They don't have to be a fandom already listed; they can be any fandom at all.

  • You may write as many stories/produce as many pieces of artwork as you wish. There are no limits. And the same prompt can be used by multiple people - you do not have to claim a prompt. Just select the one(s) you like and write/make graphics.

  • The theme of this twenty-sixth promptathon is 'Secrets'.

  • This promptathon begins on 1st November and runs for the entire month of November.

  • Posting guidelines can be found here.

  • Previous prompts may not be used during the current promptathon. They will be available (along with the prompts from this promptathon) next month.

    We look forward to the stories/artwork.

    Happy writing and graphic-making!!!

    It is time for our fourth and final promptathon of 2016! Yes, it really is! It's scary how quickly this year has gone by.

    The theme for Promptathon 26 was suggested by olivia_j & tres_mechante.
    It is:


    SECRETS


    Big or small - everyone has them. A secret from the past. A secret passion. A secret job. A secret form of communication. A good secret. A bad secret. Also, what happens if a secret is revealed?



    For Challenge #26.

    Please, please, please make sure, even if you have submitted prompts before that you read the 'PLEASE READ' part of this post to ensure you submit them in the correct way - it will save me a considerable amount of time and effort if you do so. Thank you kindly.


    Please reply to this post with a list of prompts for writers/artists to use in their stories/artwork.

    The prompts can be:

  • A fandom and a prompt, e.g. NCIS. ?/?. Dancing
  • A fandom, a character and a prompt, e.g. Due South. Fraser/?. Thinking about the future.
  • A fandom, a pairing and a prompt, e.g. The Professionals. Bodie/Doyle. A surprise from the past.
  • Just a prompt (i.e. suitable for any fandom/pairing) e.g. ?. ?/?. Flowers

    And you can mix and match when submitting, or just submit one type. Also, you can submit single word prompts or a couple of words or a few words or a sentence - just don't make them too long or detailed, i.e. not an entire plot.



    PLEASE READ


  • Please, please, please submit the prompts in the format detailed above, i.e. use the ? to fill the 'blank' spaces and also put the full stop between the 'sections'. This will make it easier for us when we are sorting the prompts. Please don't use dashes or commas or a mixture, it makes life very hard when we're putting together the list of prompts. Please just use full-stops between the sections. Also don't just put the fandom at the top of a list of prompts.

  • Any prompts not submitted in the correct way will not be included - I'm sorry, but I've asked nicely so many times and yet still people keep on submitting them in different ways. I rarely get tough, I don't want to stifle people, but it takes long enough to compile the master list, I really don't have the time (or indeed the patience any longer) to have to sort out the wrongly submitted prompts. Thank you for understanding.

  • Please also submit them in 'blocks'. For example if you are submitting prompts for more than one pairing, please keep all the prompts for Pairing A together and all the prompts for Pairing B together - they can all go into the same comment, but it's easier for us when putting the list together if we don't jump back and forth between pairings.

  • Please also do not use 'in' fandom abbreviations for the name of the fandom. Remember, this is a multi-fandom challenge and whilst it might be obvious to you what the 'in' term is, it's not necessarily going to be thus to Aingeal and myself.

  • The same applies to squished pairing names, please DO NOT use terms like Gabby or Spander type of thing, again, we won't necessarily know what they mean. (I sometimes get lost in my main fandom when squished up names are used *g*).

    Thank you for your help with this.



    To remind you:

  • This is a multi-fandom, multi-pairing challenge for slash or het couples (not gen).
  • Artwork (e.g. wallpaper, icons, banners, etc.) based on the prompts is perfectly acceptable.
  • The theme for the twenty-sixth promptathon is 'Secrets'.
  • Each half of the pair has to be 40+ in the story/artwork, i.e. it doesn't matter if they are under 40 in canon, as long as in the story they are 40 or over.
  • You do not need to be a writer/intend to write a story/produce a piece of art for this challenge to submit prompts.
  • You will be able to use your own prompt.
  • You can submit as many or as few prompts as you wish.
  • Please feel free to pimp this on your own LJ or in communities if you wish to do so.



  • You can submit prompts up to the end of the 28th October (although in reality this will be first thing on the 29th UK time to allow for time differences).
  • Posting of stories/artwork for the Promptathon will begin on 1st November and you have the entire month of November in which to post.
  • During November you may not post stories from past prompts.
