1) Comment to this post, and I'll give you a prompt in the form of whatever song shuffles up next on whatever music player I've got going at the time.
2) Turn on the music player of your choice to shuffle, post this to your own journal and dole out prompts. No, you can't hide your shameful music. If it shuffles up, that's the gig.
3) Write/draw/whatever way you create for the prompt you've been given: post it. Again, no hiding the shame. Even if you think it's awful, post it.
4) Link your finished product to the prompt comment, because it's always lovely to see the results.'
This is a good meme, I like this meme.
Avatar, Dragon Age I & II, general fantasy, and if it's something you think I might know of, give it a try. One request per requester, once I fill your request you may request again as long as the meme is still open.
In honor of All Hallow's Eve, I'm inviting trick-or-treaters to my
'door.' Comment "trick-or-treat" to this post and...well, you know the
drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors
or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a few words why I'm glad to
have you on my flist, etc. etc.). The more "houses" to visit the more
fun it'll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!
I think it would be fun to talk about stories, but the usual memes are like, "What happens next?" "Tell me about Character A?" Which isn't so much talking about stories as it is writing more of a story. But you know how sometimes you read something and you're like, "I got ___ out of this story, I wonder if I have that right?" or "What on earth was ____ supposed to be?" and it's too awkward to ask the author? Now you could totally ask!
I've heard people say that writing is hard because you have to make decisions, but we never really talk about the decisions we make with stories or why we make them. We talk about plot bunnies, but not about how we actually turn them into a story.
And it seems like a lot more fun to do that than to do working.
So, if you wanted, ask me questions! (Or use this to ask your flist to ask you questions).
What were you trying to do [here]? Why did you decide to ____? This is what I thought about xyz, is that what you were going for? What made you write ____? Why did you decide to do this? And so on.
Usual warnings and apologies apply- I may be slow and unreliable, especially right now with the thing with the teeth.
EDIT-!- Hey, all, just wanted to clarify (as I should have at first, but was a bit, well, out of it at the time)- you can ask for small moments as well as big, AUs of AU, what-ifs, future, past, weird little character/relationship moments, and all that there fun stuff. In fact, I encourage it. Most of the major events of Season 3 and late Season 2, such as WAT, Crossroads of Destiny, Sozin's Comet, etc I do have plans for- it's those set-up moments and in-between spots I'm looking to fill in, so that I can get the big ones to flow freely.
Meme time! Ganked from one or more of beckyh2111, spyridona, darkpuck, and I think suzukiblu but that might be a secondhand gank at this point. Anyway- list me an Avatar character or pairing, and I'll see what I can some up with for these ten different AUs. Please bear in mind that I may be much slower in answering than others.

Meme Is Closed! Thank you, everyone, for your prompts and your patience- I'll work through these, it just may take a bit.
Give me a prompt, a sentence, a song, whatever; any AU/universe in progress you like, just so long as you keep to this restriction- no rape.
Two prompts per person, promise of one ficbit, standard not-very-fast warning applies.
Do have at it!
Let's say two prompts per person, promise of one ficbit.
Don't be shy, it's all in good cracky fun!
(Standard warning about not being superfast applies.)
Meme re-ganked from- well, I’ve seen at least three people do it, and thought it was nifty. Oh good *lord*, what hath been wrought… (Once more attempting to edit the 'enter's into something that makes sense...)
(Edit- figured out some Ursa crack! Maybe that can lighten the load of unremitting angst I seem to have come up with otherwise...)
10. Lu Ten
( Angst: 7 (Zuko) ) ( AU, 1 & 8 (Ursa and Mai) ) ( Threesome, 3, 6 & 9 (Jet, Hakoda and Iroh) ) ( Hurt/Comfort, 5 & 10 (Spark and Lu Ten) )
( Horror: 10 (Lu Ten) ) ( Baby!fic! 5 & 9 (Spark and Iroh) ) ( Dark: 2& 8 (Jin and Mai) ) ( Romance, 4 & 7 (Ozai and Zuko) ) ( Crack: 1 (Ursa) )
( Crack: 1 (Ursa) )
( Deathfic, 2 & 3 (Jin and Jet) )
Since this is wide-open, please give me a specific to work off of- a line, a quote, a nebulous verb, something. Just a pairing does not count.
(And just as a note- the Dragon Hatching AU meme is still open, if anyone's interested!)
Edit- Meme is closed. I will fill out at least one of everyone's prompts, and more if circumstance permits. Thank you all for your patience, your comments, and the fun you've given me^^
Because I'm new at this and looking to stretch, let's start with five slots, one per person. The fandom and theme- Avatar: the Last Airbender, Dragon Hatching AU- for reference, please see this fic. Anything you would like to see in or about this universe.
I'm not as fast as some other writers, so I can't promise they'll be immediately answered, but I will get to them.
Edit- As the art hath been finished, consider the earlier restriction lifted and feel free to prompt at will, so long as it be on topic.
