Call for prompts for Promptathon 21

We are more than halfway through there year and that means we about to embark on our third and promptathon of 2015 and our twenty-first in all.

The theme for Promptathon 21 was suggested by tres_mechante and is:

Remember When . . . ?


It's time to get nostalgic in a good or even bad or neutral way with your pairing of choice. Prompts can be as simple as remembering the day the couple first met or when it rained and they had to take shelter or something more devastating or something that had an impact on more than just the couple involved - some world event, maybe. Let your minds wander as they will and come up with prompts for events/things remembered.

All prompts should begin with the words 'Remember when'.



For Challenge #21.

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-first promptathon is 'Remember When . . . ?'.
  • 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 July (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 August and you have the entire month of August in which to post.
  • During August you may not post stories from past prompts.

  • Comments:

    Just a quick clarification - obviously both members of the couple need to be 40+ at the time of the remembering - but I can imagine using that to frame a memory-story in which they are younger (which could be a significant part of the overall fic). Is that ok or do the events of the memory have to take place when they were older than 40?

    Thanks

    What a jolly good question.

    For this challenge as long as the 'do you remember when' part of the story is when they are over forty, the actual event they are remembering can indeed be when they are under 40. I think it would be too restrictive otherwise.

    I hope that's okay with you.

    ((I hope I'm listing the prompts right below. This is my first time here with the actual suggesting of prompts and I'm using the one comment I see listed with a prompt as an example. If it's not right, just let me know, and I'll be happy to change it. I've modded places before myself, know what a headache it can be, and want everything to run as smoothly as possible. :-) ))

    Thank you for letting me know I did them right, and like I said, I know from prior firsthand experience how trying running a comm can be, so anything small I can do like proper formatting to make things easier, I'm all for it. :-)
