ACT | loose lips sink ships

two hundred and fifty-four.


Snagged from slybrunette.

Comment with: a day, a fandom, a pairing, and a prompt, and I will write at least 300 words for you, to be posted on the day you claimed. Any fandom you know I'm familiar with is fair game, though I reserve the right to ask for a different prompt if you pick something I don't feel comfortable writing, or a fandom I haven't been into in a long time.

Right, kids, do your worst: I'm determined to at least try and get this done this year so come grab a spot or two!

FILM | fare thee well (my honey)



That part of a ficathon where you get a cup of coffee or something and sit down and read and let the writers know that you love them. This was such a great turnout guys, not just in terms of number but also quality because holy hell, this is all so fantastic. Maybe we should make this an annual thing. There is no better time than autumn for fairy tales, methinks. Also, give me a heads up if I've missed your fic and I'll add it to the list!

"The perennial sadness of a girl who is both Death and the Maiden."

A comment!ficathon centered around the idea of retelling fairytales; either by putting them in a different setting, changing the way they end or just giving the story a new skin of words. Anything goes; you can be as wild or tame as you like in the fairytales that you choose to prompt, Brother's Grimm is fine, if you want to prompt a fairytale with less commonly known origins go ahead.

1. Post prompts and lots of them! These can be in any format; you can post a fairytale and have a prompt with it in the form of a quote or song lyric. It is equally acceptable to add any caveats or situations you can think of. (eg. Snow White, your skin was like a bowl collecting blood is just as acceptable as "Snow White and the dwarves, mafia!AU" or "Snow White and the dwarves, mafia!AU, your skin was like a bowl collecting blood")
2. Despite the title, there's no specific restriction to what you prompt; mythology, folklore, etc. all comes under the branch.
3. If there's an obscure fairytale you like or one that's part of a less known tradition, feel free to prompt! All are welcome and if you'd like to you could either provide a short bare-bones description of what the story is so that someone else can interpret it or link to a place that has a version posted, that's cool. For example, if I wanted to prompt a story about the Tiger, the Brahmin and the Jackal but thought it was something most people wouldn't know, I could post my prompt with a link to the Wikipedia entry (or similarly, any other place that has the Cliff Notes version.
4. Responses should be titled in the following format -
pairing/character, fairytale, title if there is one, rating.

(e.g. snow white/huntsman, snow white, i think the kids are in trouble, r.)
5. Write, drink and be merry! If writing isn't your thing, feel free to grab a seat any way and leave prompts and feedback. Invite your friends! Pimp it all over town! Let's get our Angela Carters on, shall we?
