As I will be traveling for a lot of July and August, we're going to have a round that will stay open for two months - this round will close on Sept. 1 (or thereabouts) and we'll do something new.

For this round, you can repost up to three unfilled prompts you left in past rounds that you'd like to see filled. You can also post new prompts (no limit on those).

Use this template when posting:

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.

Round 45, the commentfic lightning round, is closed to new prompts, though still open for fills. And it was a great success -- thanks, everybody! We will definitely do it again.

New round coming up!

This month is a little different than usual. Instead of our usual detailed prompts, this month we'll have short, easy prompts. Your prompt should be a character or characters, and a brief prompt of some kind: a story prompt, a song lyric, a place or object, or any other kind of imagination starter. Some examples: "Neal, favorite childhood food"; "Elizabeth & Mozzie, shopping for Peter's birthday present"; "Sara, green". Posting a picture as a prompt is also great!

Fills can be as short as a paragraph, or as simple as a sketch. Art fills are very welcome, or any other kind of fill! You can also create a 5000-word story or a lovingly painted piece of art if you want, but you don't have to. The point of this month's round is to make it fast and easy.

Other characters besides the prompted ones can also be included in fills (e.g. if the prompt is "Sara, green", you could write about Sara and Elizabeth shopping or taking a flower arranging class; it doesn't have to be JUST the person in the prompt).

As always, this is a gen community, so all prompts and fills must be gen. Background canon pairings are okay -- e.g. Peter/Elizabeth or Diana/Christie -- as long as they're not the focus of the story. Ask if you have questions!

... and ... go!

Round 44: Rare Characters is now closed to new prompts, although not to fills.

Back with the new round in a minute!
You can still weigh in on the poll, but looking at how it's going so far, here's what I think we're looking at for the next few months.

June - Lightning round (short prompts, quick fills) - I'm also going to see if I can get more people engaged with this one!
July - Repeat favorite unfilled prompts from past rounds

I might extend that one through August, because I'm traveling at the end of July/first two weeks in August, so that'd be easier than starting a new round in the middle of vacation.

After I get back, I'll revisit the gen exchange in a discussion post, and we can work out dates and rules. If there is enough interest to have an exchange, we'll either do it in the fall, or push it back 'til January when there aren't quite so many exchanges going on (since at that point we'll be getting into the holiday-season exchanges).

So probably either the gen exchange will be September/October, or the last part of the year will be a general round, a Neal round, a Peter round, and then the exchange will happen, if it happens.

Let me know if anyone has any problems with this, or suggestions for changes to make! :D Otherwise we'll start the commentfic/"lightning" round in June. And you can still vote in the poll!

I've run through the top vote-getting options in the last theme poll, so it's time for another one!

At the end of last year we decided to have a few months where we did something different, and I think it's time for that! After we do some or all of these, we can go back to regular prompting with a general (unthemed) prompts round.

Which of the following sound interesting to you? Choose as many as you like.

Which of the following sound interesting to you? Choose as many as you like.

A gen fanworks exchange
A "best of the past" round (repost unfilled prompts from past rounds)
A commentfic "lightning" round (very short fills, and less detailed prompts than usual)

For the commentfic round, I'm thinking something along the general lines of such_heights' kissing fests (only gen, obviously) or this commentfic thing I've been doing lately, where instead of the usual detailed prompt, it's just a single line (for example, "Neal, stealing Peter's watch" or "Sara & Elizabeth, girls' day out") and the fill could be as short as a paragraph. Any of them CAN be, but usually the prompts tend to lend themselves to longer stories, so this would be specifically geared towards short, low-pressure fills -- though of course you can do an epic if you want. Art fills are also 100% great (and might be easier for artists in a month when the prompts aren't super plotty) ... I'd like to call it something other than "commentfic" to indicate that art fills are also welcome, but I can't think of anything better; suggestions?

For the fanworks exchange, it would be as low-pressure as possible -- probably something like 500 word minimum for fic, or 1 piece of art (I know art is more time-consuming, but there's really no way around that ...). Participants will provide a small number of prompts, along the lines of the prompts in the community (even some of your old prompts if you want), and their assigned creator will pick one of them to fill. We'll have a discussion post about it, before we do it, to nail down the exact rules -- comments to this post are welcome too, if there's something specific you'd like to see. Assuming there is enough interest in running one; we'll need several participants minimum to make it work!

So, upcoming months for this community will probably be:

- The poll items, in general order of how many people want to do them
- And then an unthemed round
- And then a couple of character-based rounds, which was another thing from the poll back in December that got some interest (probably a Neal-focused round and a Peter-focused one)

And then we'll figure out where we're going from there. But this'll take us through most of 2016!
