If anyone has/wants to make banners/icons/buttons to promote the comm, please leave me a link/PM me. Otherwise, without further ado:

Happyfest III

Open for prompts

Please assume that some prompts will be spoilerific for shows currently airing and shield your screen accordingly! If you really don't want to risk seeing anything, feel free to PM me your prompts instead.


1. ALL stories must have happy endings.
It doesn't have to involve puppies and kittens, but you should leave people smiling rather than sobbing.

2. ALL genres are welcome.
If you want to write happy-ending angst, that's fine. Fluff and crack are also welcome, as are action, whump, character studies, romances… you get the idea. This year, RPF is also welcome, but please be sure and label it accordingly in both prompts and fics.

3. ALL fandoms are welcome.
I'm going to get out there and advertise it as much as I can, but if you have a newsletter/fandom that you can reach for me, please let me know in comments.

4. ALL ratings are welcome.
We will be taking everything from the gentlest Gen to NC-17.

5. The Fest has 2 parts, the Prompt stage and the Writing stage.
Please read and follow the instructions in each case or the mod will look over her librarian glasses and tut at you, and no one wants that.

The main difference this year is that we'll be running in parallel on Dreamwidth and Livejournal. The prompt list will be a combined one (ie the same in both locations) but other than that, please play wherever you want to!

Instructions for Prompts:

1. Prompts open today, Friday 17th July 2009, and close Wednesday, 22nd July.

2. Comment to this post with a fandom, a character/characters/a team, and a prompt word. Please separate elements with a semi-colon.
Doctor Who; Donna; hat
SPN; Dean; blanket
SGA; Zelenka/Lorne; north
Torchwood; Team; jungle
NCIS; Gibbs and Tony; flower

Formatting it this way will save me all kinds of headaches, and my brain thanks you for your consideration.

3. You can leave up to ten prompts. Because I got kind of swamped last year, if you leave more than this, I will only copy and paste your first ten. Choose wisely! Please remember that if no one from your fandom knows about the fest, you're not going to get your prompt written. Spread the word!

4. Because someone's bound to ask, yes, you will be allowed to write your own prompt.

5. Sit back and wait or glance through other people's prompts and start thinking about what you'd like to write.

Instructions for Writing will follow on Wednesday, once I've had a chance to compile the list of prompts. But the aim will be to write comment fic, as much as possible, as happy as possible.

Please mention this fest anywhere and everywhere – the more, the happier!

If you've got problems or queries or offers of help, please PM me or leave a comment and I'll see what I can do.
