I think it’s about time for a comment-fic meme, don’t you? ;)
A Dean-focused A few ground-rules:01.
h/c comment memePIMP IT!
As for what type of thing you should be prompting here, this is a Dean-focused hurt/comfort community, so Dean should be the one in the hurt/comforted role. Your prompts may involve sick!Dean, (yes, please!) angsty!Dean, hurt!Dean, or anything else that results in Dean being on the receiving end of hurt/comfort.02.
Comment to this post with your desired characters or pairings, if any, and a prompt
. All genres/pairings are welcome, however this is not an RPF meme. Please focus on the fictional characters only.Example A:
“Sam, Dean, gen, set in season 4. PTSD!Dean has a flashback to hell on a hunt and almost gets himself and Sam killed. Cue guilty, upset Dean and awesome, comforting Sam.” Example B:
“Sam/Dean, fever. Dean has the chills and there is cuddling, naaw.”03.
You can leave as many prompts as you like, but one prompt per comment, please. If you've got a few, comment with each separately. 04.
Your prompts can be as short or as detailed as you’d like.05.
Scroll through the comments and when/if you find a prompt you like, write a fic in reply to the comment.06.
More than one comment-fic response to a prompt is totally acceptable, and in fact encouraged. The more fic, the better!07.
Art submissions are very much accepted too! Art larger than 800 px or so should be posted as a thumbnail that links back to the full art, please.08.
When replying to a prompt with your comment-fic or art, put 'FILLED' in your subject line as well as warning for anything that might be triggering, such as non-con, self-harm, etc. You can add anything else you want too, ie: a title if you have one/part numbers. So, your subject line should look something like this:FILLED: Title, Character(s), genre/pairing(s), Rating, Warning(s) - if any
For further clarification:Example:
FILLED: Untitled, Dean and Sam, gen, PG-13, self-harm
It’s not a big deal if you don’t do all of this, but using 'FILLED' as well as warnings will make it easier for people to find your fic, and for me when I’m compiling the masterlist.09.
Anonymous posting is enabled in case you’re embarrassed by your schmoopiest of schmoopy hurt/comfort fantasies or something, haha. IP logging will also be off during the weeks the meme is at it’s most active. 10.
No spoilers for upcoming episodes, please. If you're prompting something from a recently aired episode, please be courteous and note that there may be spoilers before you get to the main part of your request. Or you can use the following code. Just put your prompt/text where it says to:CODE FOR SPOILERY PROMPTS/TEXT
It will look like this:11.
Likewise, no character bashing, or rudeness in general. Be respectful – of the characters, and of each other. The mod reserves the right to delete inappropriate comments.12.
Do feed your authors! They’re awesome. 13.
If you want to advertise this, that’s fantastic! It would be really appreciated. Just copy and paste the code provided above into your journal.
Oh, and just a few things! FAQ:
- Yes, if your fic gets too long for a comment-fic, you can comment with the link to it at your LJ.
- Yes, you can totally post the fics you write for this meme directly to the comm as well.
- Because it bears repeating - yes, art is more than welcome as well as fic.
- As for a timeframe - this post will be open for prompting between one and two weeks or so. There’s no exact timeline, because I play it by ear and don’t close it until I see it’s starting to slow down. In any case, it will stay open indefinitely for new comment-fics and comments/feedback.
Any other questions? Feel free to PM me, or e-mail hoodietime [at] gmail [dot] com.
In conclusion, have fuuun!
Oh, P.S. If you want, you can check out our tags-list
and get some ideas for things you could prompt. There are still a bunch of unused tags, so maybe we can use some of them up.
MasterlistETA: As of October 7th, 2009, this meme is closed for leaving new prompts. It is still OPEN, however, (and will be indefinitely) for comment-fics and comments/feedback, and I’ll keep updating the masterlist as long as people keep writing. ;)
