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.

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.

    As I said at the end of the last promptathon of 2018, I was going to give some consideration as to whether it was worth continuing to run promptathons four times a year as participation both in submitting prompts and stories had dropped to almost nothing.

    I know it can't help when the comm owner no longer takes part in the promptathons (at least not as far as stories go) and I am sorry about that. For various reasons I haven't written in quite some time and sadly I don't see that changing in the immediate future.

    Therefore, after a lot of thought I have decided that really there isn't any point in keeping the community going as far as doing regular promptathons go. The community will remain open and active and all past prompts will be available should members wish to write stories.

    When aingeal8c and I started this comm back in 2007, things were a lot different both in terms of having a place dedicated to 'older' characters and in the number of people using LJ and writing and posting fanfic. That has changed considerably over the years and I honestly think it is time to call it a day.

    It's a shame, but all good things come to an end and in terms of the life of some comms, this one has done amazingly well. Thirty-four promptathons in eleven years is pretty good going I would say.

    I should like to thank everyone who has written stories, submitted prompts, submitted ideas for promptathons, read stories and generally supported this community.

    Thank you.

    Nikki

    Thank you for the submitted prompts for our thirty-fourth promptathon. Sadly, yet again we had very few indeed. I have added a handful of fandom/pairing free prompts, but the list of prompts is very short.

    I think it's time to give serious thought to the future of this community and whether it is still viable or even desired any longer. I wouldn't delete the comm and all the prompts would still be available for use. But maybe it's time to end the four-times-a-year new promptathons. It's been great fun, but maybe the time has come to call it quits on new promptathons. I'll ponder it more.

  • 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.

  • 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 thirty-third promptathon is 'Summer'.

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

  • 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.

    Well here we are at our fourth and final promptathon of 2018.

    The theme for Promptathon 34 is:

    TRUTH OR LIES


    Is telling the truth always the best thing to do? Can a lie help a relationship? For good or for bad, truth and lies are both part of life and have an impact on relationships. Prompts can be entirely related to the truth or entirely related to lies. It's up to you.



    For Challenge 34.

    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 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 thirty-fourth promptathon is 'Truth or Lies'.
  • 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 may 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 may 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.

    a thanks and an explanation

    Posted by ride_4ever on 28.08.2018 at 22:31
    I want to thank this comm for the August promptathon and also explain why I'm not posting the fic (yet) that this promptathon inspired. Requiem Publications has expressed interest in making this fic a part of their upcoming due South Fraser/Kowalski slash zine, and for it to be considered it has to be unposted, and if selected has to remain unposted for one year.

    I can't believe we are half way through July already and thus onto our third promptathon of 2018.

    The theme for Promptathon 33 is:

    SUMMER


    I hate it (as do others), however many people love it. Thus it seemed only fair to have a summer time promptathon devoted to 'summer'.

    Prompts must in some way relate to summer. Hot weather. Sunshine. Going to the beach. Fans. Summer festivals. Heatwave. Water shortages. Too hot. Not hot enough. Summer flowers. Summer trees. Swimming in the sea. Summer weddings. Summers that disappoint. Summer holidays. Summer food. Barbeques. Summer romance. Etc. Etc. In fact anything at all which pertains to summer.



    For Challenge 33.

    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.

    Sincere apologies for vanishing without a trace at the end of the previous promptathon. I moved house and was without access to the internet for quite some time, plus the whole process has been exhausting, thus I have barely been online for several weeks. In fact it is only in the last few days that I am beginning to get back to any degree of normality.

    So with no further ado, here we are, on our second promptathon of 2018.

    The theme for Promptathon 32 is:

    HELP


    Everyone needs help with something at some time - even if they don't like to admit it. People generally like to help others. Prompts can be about helping someone or about asking for help - or indeed both.



    For Challenge 32..

    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.

    NOTES: I'm not very up on Star Wars lore and extended universe stuff, so apologies for all the things I assumedly don't know. The prompt just spoke to me.
    DISCLAIMER: These characters do not belong to me; this was written for fun, not profit.

    Here on AO3
     


    We had very few prompts this time, I'm sorry to say. Nonetheless, thank you to the person who kindly submitted some. I have added a few 'Any Fandom/Any Pairing' prompts, so hopefully there will be something to tickle your muse. I apologise in advance for my less than stellar prompts  my prompt muse was not co-operating today.

    Prompt ListCollapse )



    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 thirty-first promptathon is 'Good or Bad'.

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

  • 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!!!

    Call for prompts for Promptathon 31

    Here we are, on our first promptathon of 2018 - I do hope it is a good year for everyone.

    The theme for Promptathon 31 is:

    GOOD OR BAD


    Good things happen in people's lives as do bad things. Sometimes things we think will be bad turn out to be good and vice versa. Prompts can be entirely related to something good or entirely related to something bad. It's up to you.



    For Challenge 31.

    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 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 thirty-first promptathon is 'Good or Bad'.
  • 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 may 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 may submit prompts up to the end of the 28th January (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 February and you have the entire month of February in which to post.
  • During February you may not post stories from past prompts.
