SO!! Rina and Sev want to do a fantastical new thing for 2017, to promote fun writing projects: We are collecting prompts to make a Master List of 52 prompts for 2017. We will write something over 100 words for 1 prompt every week. This will be a fun game for you to play.

We are mostly looking for general prompts, like: "sunlight" or "light and dark" or "aliens made us do it"; however, we will accept specific prompts for fandoms we share, which are mostly Final Fantasy games.

We are also looking for 10 "Amnesty Prompts" - which will be the 10 prompts immediately after our 52 prompt collection - which we can use any week the given prompt is not working for us.

Please leave some kick-ass prompt suggestions and help us develop our 52 Week Challenge prompt list!!!

How this will work:

  • Leave like up to 5 prompts at a time, with maybe 1-2 as fandom specific prompts and the rest as general. It's way cooler if you leave less than 5 at a time though, so that we can really mix up the prompts. We definitely won't put 5+ in order at once, because we like mixing it up every week.
  • We will input prompts as they appear, although, we reserve the right to save some prompts for our Amnesty List if they are awesome.
  • Come back, scan the list, and leave one or two more to mess with us!
  • We'll let you know when we are done -- we may collect a number of backup prompts for future use.

Comment here, or on Rina's list: everything goes into the GDoc!

READY SET UHHHHHH ... GO PLEASE sob leave us trash

So, I initially said I was going to do a mini-Nano. Well. I kind of intended to work on an original story I'd already started. Then, Becky and I were going to work on ~shame novels~. Now, I have no idea what I'm going to do. And it's November 1st!

I do want to work on my original stories. I really do. But at this point I'm not sure it'll carry me through the month.

So hey! Leave me some prompts.

Like always, I make no guarantee that they're going to get written at all. (See for reference: I took prompts last year, and they did erupt into words, but none of them ever got finished.)

So no guarantees and no promises and maybe I'll just end up trolling those prompts from last year because some of them are still awesome (BALLS AND SPAGHETTI, ANYONE??), but if you have any new ideas, or revamps of old ideas, throw them at me

25,000 words i swear it will happen

So I said in a comment that I actually expect FFXIII to become a decent writing fandom for me because of the holes and confusion in said story. That's pretty true: I write more for fandoms that didn't necessarily feel complete or sensical to me (FFIV, what with the LUNAR WHALE and all; FFVIII's plot holes and weirdly focused storytelling) than I do for ones that felt more or less complete (FFVI and FFX being good examples here – I loved both games, but I don't feel as compelled to write for them as I do for other fandoms. It isn't that VI and X don't have things to explore or holes in their stories – they do! – and some of it is character draw between all of the games, sure; but I just don't feel like I have as much to add in those canons as I do for IV and VIII). I liked FFXIII enough to think about dabbling in it fannishly, at least, and since my writing has more or less dried up and been left for dead, I want to tentatively encourage anything that gets me excited about words again.

So here's what I want to do, to take my mind off of my job: I want to talk about the characters in FFXIII, and I want to talk about things that I liked, and I want to talk about things that I want to read, or want to write. And then I want you guys to talk back about characters and rec me good fics! First, rec me anything that's good from FFXIII, whether or not it matches with stuff I am into, because good fic is wanted and needed and I'm always excited about new stuff in a new fandom. But second, if you can think of anything that will fill some of those holes I'm feeling pretty keenly, please hand it over! self-reccing is totes okay too. give me fic please. Or, if you see something that looks like fun, prompt me! Or make me prompt you! FUN GAMES IN SEV'S JOURNAL: THE MUSICAL.

FFXIII Characters – possible game spoilers I guess )

In having written all of this, I'm seeing a couple trends. In addition to FFXIII being about trust/betrayal, right/wrong, truth/lies, it's also about family, including families of choice. And I like that. But I also like the dark undercurrents in so many of these character-character relationships, because I have bad taste in everything. The Fandom Hell Bus is coming to pick me up. Get in; I'm driving

THIS GOT REALLY LONG.

SOMEBODY HELP ME OUT HERE.

I am totally stealing this from [personal profile] lassarina because, hey, why not.

- By "12 Days" I mean that I will run this tiny meme until 12 January. It's more than 12 Days, but that's how Christmas runs, sucka.
- By "Promptmas" I mean that you leave me prompts. Or a bunch of prompts, and I will choose the one I fancy the most. And I'll write it! For you!

- I make no promises on length: but if you know what I like, you know what to give me to tempt me to a higher word count.
- If you leave one prompt, I'll do my best. If you want to leave multiple prompts, I'll pick one or two that I really like and go to town. It's up to you!
- I am open to prompts from any fandom you know I'm in. If you are iffy on a fandom, leave me multiple prompts in multiple fandoms to choose from! I am open to any themes and any genres from G to PRON.
- this is open to anyone! Even if I've just met you!
- I make no promises on whether I will write your fic sober.

And, uh, Happy Holidays~.

Yeah, why not. I did one of these a long time ago and really enjoyed it. (Oh, look! Here it is. 2008, oh my frigging god.) And since I'm not doing NaNoWriMo this year I figured it would be a fun thing to do. In the interest of, you know, writing something. Anything. All the things.

Here's how we play!
   --> You leave a comment with a fandom, a character or pairing, and five words or short prompts.
   --> I will write sentences for your prompts.
   --> Everyone wins!
   --> I will be doing this for the next couple days only, so if you miss out, sorry. Although if you leave awesome prompts I'll try to get to them anyway.

All the usual fandoms and then some:
  • Final Fantasy: IV, IV: TAY, V, VI, VII/AC/etc, VIII, IX, X/X2, XII, Dissidia sure why not

  • Games: Chrono Trigger, uh do I play anything else

  • Shows: Criminal Minds; Firefly; Avatar: The Last Airbender; Gundam Wing SURE WHY NOT

  • Books: the Dresden Files; the Vorkosigan Saga; the Kushiel books; the Mercy Thompson books; the Hunger Games; uh

  • Movies? I AM RUNNING OUT OF IDEAS

  • Any other stuff you might know I like

Hey guys, I have a lovely Italian/English-speaking fangirl who has been translating my FFVII one-shots into Italian to share with other Italian speakers. So, obviously, I love her. She is currently looking for a beta to proofread a fic she is translating from Italian-->English. Her English is good enough to be understood, but translating in that direction is much more difficult for her, so she's looking for a beta to help her with English dialect/colloquisms/slang/humour.

It's a KH fic, which apparently takes the "High School" cliche and jumps all over its head. (I am almost disappointed that I do not know KH fandom.) Would anyone be interested in doing some beta reading for a non-native speaker's translation? (Keep in mind that since the fic is already written, it would be mostly easy beta-ing, based on correcting things translated into English rather then dealing with characterization and plot.)

I would do it, but I haven't even touched KH. Is anyone interested?
