In general prompting rounds, you may now repost one prompt from a previous round, as long as it wasn't posted in the last general round or the last themed round. There's no limit on the number of new prompts you can post.

Use this template when posting:

Prompt/Request:
Characters:
I Would Like:
I Don't Want:

All prompts and fills must be gen. Commentfic, longer fics, art, vids, etc. are all great. Fills may be posted anywhere as long as they're linked from here, and can be posted as new posts to the comm if you like. You can also use your fills to fill other challenges, bingos, etc. as long as their rules allow it.

Thanks to everyone who weighed in with ideas and suggestions on the last post! I think I'm going to take sheenianni's suggestion to alternate general prompting months with themed months. You may repost prompts you've posted before, but only 1 per person per round, and only if you did not post it last month. We have tons of old unfilled prompts, so this will be a good way of giving some of those more exposure!

February's round will be a general round; I'll put that post up in a few minutes. Also, this is your notice that Round 47 is now closed to new prompts.

We still have some themes from past theme polls that we haven't used yet, plus I added a few more I thought of. Please check the boxes for the ones you like best (up to 3).

Which themes do you like best? Check up to three.

Crossovers/fusions
4(12.5%)
Pre-series
3(9.4%)
Reunion
3(9.4%)
Travel
2(6.2%)
Duos (all prompts must involve two and only two characters)
1(3.1%)
First sentence (the prompt must be a sentence that will be the 1st sentence of the fill)
4(12.5%)
Heists, cons, and undercover
6(18.8%)
Apocalypse
2(6.2%)
Escape
2(6.2%)
Magic/fantasy (e.g. transformation, wings, fantasy AUs, stage magicians, etc)
5(15.6%)


(For the "first sentence" one, you can totally do art fills for this too - use the sentence as the prompt for your art.)

So, uh, hi! I guess we better figure out what to do with this community in 2017!

For the last couple of years, the themed posts helped a lot with keeping up interest and generating new prompts and fills, but now that flurry of activity seems to be dying down. It's hard to keep coming up with a bunch of new prompts with no new canon to work off of.

What are your thoughts on some ways to keep the community going? Should we drop down to a new prompt post every other month? Should we allow prompt reposting in every round? (I'm inclined to think that this might be a good idea, because there have been a number of prompts that looked really great to me, that I didn't have a chance to write for at the time, and then I never seem to go back to old posts and check for them when I DO have time. However, I'd hate to have it end up creating a cycle of endless reposted prompts that no one ever fills!) So far, we've been doing very general themes (e.g. AU, h/c) but should we try some months when we have a fairly specific theme, like fan-flashworks does, and see how that does?

I'm basically opening it up to the floor. Tell me what you like about this community, what you would like to see in the future, and what would be most likely to keep you engaged and interested.

Title: Blue Christmas
Author: ashley5627
Fandom: White Collar
Pairing: none/gen (background Peter/El)
Characters: Neal, Peter, Elizabeth, Jones, Diana
Warnings: none
Spoilers: definite season 1 spoilers
Rating: PG-13
Genre: hurt/comfort, angst, friendship
Word Count: 12,000
Summary: Christmas was a time for happy get-togethers with loved ones, going out caroling with the neighbors and drinking too much egg nog. For his first Christmas out of prison, Neal only had plans for drinking.
Author's Notes: This was written for the 2016 whitecollarhc Advent Calendar. This is set in the first season even though Diana is in it. I didn't even think of it until it was too late, so just roll with it, okay?


Here's the story on AO3!

And back to business as usual. :) This round will run 'til the end of December, and then we'll figure out our plans for 2017! Thank you to everyone for making the Fall Fest happen, and for keeping the community going with your enthusiasm, prompts and fills in 2016.

There is no specific theme this round, so you can leave any kind of prompt.

I have unscreened all comments and revealed the AO3 collection! AO3 gift notifications should be going out shortly. It is perfectly fine to go ahead and add new treats at any time - the baskets are never closed to gifting! So you may want to track your gift basket post (click on the "track" option at the top of the post) so you will be notified of new comments in case someone gives you a late treat.

Enjoy your treats! Thank you to everyone for participating! And now I am going to run off to rummage in my own gift basket. :)

I'm planning to unscreen baskets at about 5 p.m. Alaska time (9 p.m. Eastern time). So it's time to finish up your treats if you are still working on any! Send me a PM if you want to make a last-minute treat and would like to know which baskets are "neediest" -- though right now, all of them have at least 2 items, and most have more! I think you'll all be very happy. :)
 
 
10 November 2016 @ 11:57 pm
The treat baskets are filling up nicely! Every basket has at least 2 items and most have about 3-4. :)

I'm still planning to do reveals on Monday, Nov. 14, though it may be pushed back to Tuesday because it's possible I will be busy that day.

I'll post a message to the community a couple hours before I unscreen everything, so you can finish up any late treats. It's also perfectly fine to add a new treat to a baskets after the baskets are all unscreened (that is, they won't close once reveals happen, so you can go ahead and put in treats if you finish something late).

Thank you all for working so hard on this!

I'm going to leave the treat basket signup post open through the end of October and then close it when I get up on Nov. 1, so there will be plenty of time for basket-filling. So now is the time to get your basket request in, if you don't have one and want one!

And please do fill a basket if you have a moment to put in a ficlet, picture, fic rec, or something else. Thank you so much to everyone who has put a gift in a basket; you're all superstars! :) Right now all of the baskets have at least one treat, so no one is going without, but more is always better. :) The AO3 collection is here. Baskets will be revealed on (approximately) Nov. 14.

It's time to start filling baskets!

You can still request a basket at this post if you don't have one yet (all posted basket requests have now been screened at the original post). If you notice anything wrong with your basket or would like something changed, let me know! Basket signups are now closed!

There is a collection on AO3 for longer treats: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/Collarcorner_Gen_Fall_Fest_2016/. If you post to the collection, please leave your recipient a comment in their treat basket linking to it; this will not only make it easier for them to find their gift, but it will also help me make sure everyone has something in their basket.

All treats will be unscreened and the AO3 collection revealed on November 14, so you have a little over a month to post them.

Rules:

1. Because this is a gen community, all treats must be gen. See the profile page for Collarcorner's definition of gen. (Basically, canon pairings can be included, but shouldn't be the focus of the fic; no explicit content or non-canon pairings.)
2. There is no minimum or maximum size for a treat. They may be any size or length.
3. Everyone is guaranteed at least one treat. I will try to make sure everyone has at least two -- and hopefully more!
4. In creating treats, you don't have to stick exclusively to your recipient's prompts, but please try to observe their likes and dislikes.
5. You don't have to be a fanwork creator (writer/artist/vidder) to play! Most people have non-fanwork requests you can fill, e.g. recs and pictures, and you are also not required to make any treats in order to have a basket of your own.

Now have fun and fill some baskets!
