256 comments, 6 pages, 17 fills and that's a wrap for Promptathon 2017. Huge thanks to everyone who prompted, created, beta read, commented, waved those cheerleading pompoms, and took part!

If you still have prompt fills that you’re working on or feel inspired by prompts now or in the future, you can still create things for them and post them to the community as usual. We’ll love them; they just won’t count as part of promptathon.

Until next time folks, enjoy reading your way through the masterlist and carry on being amazing! :)

Happy Friday people of the bar!

That summer time of promptathon is almost upon us, so this weekend we're stretching those creative muscles.

1) Leave a short prompt in a comment. You can leave as many prompts as you like, but please put each prompt in seperate comment.

2) Reply to prompts with three sentence fics or a fic in 100 words exactly. You can reply to as many prompts as you like and prompts can have multiple fills. The more writing the better! And, if so inclined, feel free to reply in graphic or icon form instead.

3) Have fun! And get that practise in before promptathon!

Things to remember:
1) Always label NSFW (Not Safe For Work) stuff in the title and post under a cut.
2) Fic and artwork needs to have a rating and warnings (or you can say that you’ve chosen not to use warnings).
3) For people with annoying internet connections, say in the title if a comment is graphic/images/gif-heavy and post picspams under a cut.
4) Have a damn good time! (Because if that’s not happening then this post has clearly failed.)

Author: Alpha Flyer
Title:  Nocturne
Characters/Relationships:  Pepper Potts, Clint Barton, Rocket Raccoon (background Tony/Pepper, Clint/Natasha)
Rating:  PG-13
Warnings: None (unless you find some swearing warning-worthy)
Summary: At night you meet the oddest people, and garbage can become a matter of perspective.

Author's Note: This one was meant for the Promptathon, written to my own prompts (because, it seems, that's something I do).  But... Real Life and deadlines are incompatible at times, so here it is, two weeks late.

Read it on AO3

Promptathon will be closing for prompts in about 5-6 hours so time to throw in a bunch of last minute ideas!

Folks, I hate to do it, BUT PROMPTATHON IS NOW CLOSED FOR PROMPTS. Fills are open until Sunday 4th September. CREATE LIKE CRAZY.
 
 
07 August 2016 @ 08:38 pm
Hi All, you can start posting fills over at promptathon from today! As in right the hell now! Prompting is still open until next Sunday though, so keeping throwing those ideas out too :D

Remember when posting fills:

1. Respond in a comment to the prompt you are filling. Try and post the entire work in the comment (if it's short enough), or if not, post a link. Do not post works to the comm. We’re all about one-stop shopping, so try and post in the main promptathon post if the length allows. If it is too long to post in the promptathon post, consider posting the first section as a teaser and then a link (because that's always fun too.)

2. Label your submission in the subject line with FILL, the type of fanwork, your title, and any warnings. Example: FILL fic: 5 Times Clint and Natasha Were Awesome (PG) When filling in the subject line, you may need to view the comm in it's original style (if you don't already). Just make sure you can see a subject line when responding with your submission.

3. Be sure to leave ratings and warnings (if any) in the subject line. (See example above.) Help us out and make sure folks know what they're clicking on. Thoughtfulness = LOVE. If the ratings or the warnings won't fit in the subject line, just leave them at the top of your post. If you don't want to include warnings, please put 'I choose not to warn' in the subject line, or again at the top of the post if it doesn't fit.

4. Please put anything NSFW under a cut or link. Put any spoilers under a cut or link with an appropriate warning.

GO YE FORTH!

Welcome to one of the most eagerly-anticipated events on the [livejournal.com profile] be_compromised calendar! It’s time for THE EPIC SUMMER PROMPTATHON!!!

Just before we get started we do have some info and rules we’d like you to read…

HOW PROMTATHON 2016 WORKS

Step One: leave prompts

Prompts can be anything – simple or elaborate, words or pictures, songs or poems, lyrics or phrases, anything that inspires a fanwork. Use your imagination. Go wild! All we ask is that you place anything NSFW behind a cut or link, use warnings where appropriate, and spoiler-cut anything spoiler-ish.

The focus of prompts should be Natasha and/or Clint, individually or as friends, lovers, spouses, partners, in gen fic, ANYTHNG. That means we do welcome other characters and pairings (and threesomes or moresomes) as long as Clint and/or Natasha is there somewhere. See here for more info, and always feel free to ask a mod if you have any questions – there’s even a handy questions thread at the top of the promptathon below.

Leave as many prompts as you want. We’re serious. Keep coming back. We want as many prompts as we can possibly get. Just make sure each prompt is in a separate comment.

Step two: squee

Been wanting to jump into the fandom but not sure where to start? Now’s the time. Newbie or a lurker? Here’s the perfect opportunity to say hello! Promptathon is a fun, no-pressure environment. If all you want to do is post prompts and share in the squee, you’re more than welcome! And by squee we mean chatting in the chat thread, replying to prompts to chat about prompts, and just lots of excitement all over the place.

Step three: submit fanworks like there’s no tomorrow

The usual Community Rules apply. There’s no length requirement on fanworks submitted. You can write drabbles or epics, vids, art, fanmixes, anything at all; it’s just all about getting creative! You can fill as many prompts as you want, and prompts can be filled multiple times by whoever wants to fill them.

HOW TO POST

1. Respond in a comment to the prompt you are filling. Try and post the entire work in the comment (if it's short enough), or if not, post a link. Do not post works to the comm. We’re all about one-stop shopping, so try and post in the main promptathon post if the length allows. If it is too long to post in the promptathon post, consider posting the first section as a teaser and then a link (because that's always fun too.)

2. Label your submission in the subject line with FILL, the type of fanwork, your title, and any warnings. Example: FILL fic: 5 Times Clint and Natasha Were Awesome (PG) When filling in the subject line, you may need to view the comm in it's original style (if you don't already). Just make sure you can see a subject line when responding with your submission.

3. Be sure to leave ratings and warnings (if any) in the subject line. (See example above.) Help us out and make sure folks know what they're clicking on. Thoughtfulness = LOVE. If the ratings or the warnings won't fit in the subject line, just leave them at the top of your post. If you don't want to include warnings, please put 'I choose not to warn' in the subject line, or again at the top of the post if it doesn't fit.

4. Please put anything NSFW under a cut or link. Put any spoilers under a cut or link with an appropriate warning.

TIMELINE

TODAY: Prompting starts!
SUNDAY 7th AUGUST: wait for it, wait for it, look out for the announcement and the masterlist/fills post… FILLS ARE OPEN
SUNDAY 14th AUGUST: Prompts close (yes, prompts and fills will overlap for a bit) PROMPTS ARE CLOSED
SUNDAY 4th SEPTEMBER: Promptathon ends - alas, promptathon is now over for another year.

THERE IS NOW A MASTERLIST AVAILABLE. Comment to the Masterlist post to have your works added. That way we can try and keep track of everything :)

If you have any questions about anything feel free to ask! We have a questions thread in the post below and you can always comment to or PM a mod.

OKAY THEN BEST BAR EVER, LET’S GET PROMPTING!

Just a reminder that Promptathon 2016 kicks off THIS FRIDAY.

And a HUGE THANK YOU everyone who's made banners and graphics. BEST BAR!
 
 
22 July 2016 @ 02:00 pm
It’s almost - almost - time for this year’s SUMMER PROMPTATHON! (No, really, SOON. EXCITEMENT!) So we’re warming up those prompting brain cells and writing muscles for this week’s All The Things Friday in anticipation of the main event.

Here’s how this works: comment to this post with a prompt. As many times as you like. People can then fill those prompts, but only with fics that are three sentences long OR exactly 100 words long OR a graphic containing 140 characters or less.

You can get creative with what three sentences look like or be precise with 100 words. You can write in installments of three sentences or 100 words. You can fill as many prompts as you like, the same prompt can be filled multiple times, and you can even write fills in response to other people's fills to create round robin or chain fics. We're open to creativity, but the aim of the game is three sentences OR 100 words OR 140 characters in a graphic - choose your challenge!

We’re going to wrap this up before promptathon, so this ends at midnight on Sunday, whenever midnight is in your time zone. The usual community rules apply and the usual community theme - which is that we love all things Natasha and Clint, with each other, other people, threesomes, in gen fic, you know how we roll.

Happy Friday :)

PS. If anyone would like to make a summer or promptathon themed community banner for August check out a monthly news post for the guidelines, send them in to be_compromised@hotmail.com, and you will receive CAPSLOCK APPRECIATION and virtual hugs from me!

Things to remember:
1) Always label NSFW (Not Safe For Work) stuff in the title and post under a cut.
2) Fic and artwork needs to have a rating and warnings (or you can say that you’ve chosen not to use warnings).
3) For people with annoying internet connections, say in the title if a comment is graphic/images/gif-heavy and post picspams under a cut.
4) Have a damn good time! (Because if that’s not happening then this post has clearly failed.)
 
 
11 March 2016 @ 04:00 pm
Hi All and welcome to the revitalised All The Things Friday! ATTFs are party posts that we kick off on a Friday and last the whole weekend, sometimes even longer if they're a challenge or if we're just having so much fun that we want to keep going. For more info on ATTFs, to see what we have coming up, and to sign up to do these party posts - which we really need people to do if you want ATTFs, hint hint! - please click on this link.

Okay, so this week, due to popular demand, is THREE SENTENCE FIC TIME!

Here's how this works: comment to this post with a prompt. As many times as you like. People can then fill those prompts, but only with fics that are three sentences long. Which is not to say that you can't get creative with what those three sentences look like, or write more than one three sentence fic installment, but sometimes the challenge of fitting a lot into a small space can be fun. You can fill as many prompts as you like, the same prompt can be filled multiple times, and you can even write three sentence fills in response to other people's fills to create round robin or chain fics. We're open to creativity, but the aim of the game is three sentences.

The usual community rules apply and the usual community theme - which is that we love all things Natasha and Clint, with each other, other people, threesomes, in gen fic, you know the drill.

PARTY TIME! Happy Friday :)


Things to remember:
1) Always label NSFW (Not Safe For Work) stuff in the title and post under a cut.
2) Fic and artwork needs to have a rating and warnings (or you can say that you’ve chosen not to use warnings).
3) For people with annoying internet connections, say in the title if a comment is graphic/images/gif-heavy and post picspams under a cut.
4) Have a damn good time! (Because if that’s not happening then this post has clearly failed.)

OKAY THEN BEST BAR EVER, LET’S GET PROMPTING!

PROMPTATHON 2015 IS NOW FINISHED.
Thanks to everyone who prompted, created, and commented!

Please make sure you link to your fills on the Masterlist Post - everythings should be unspammed - and then look out for a shiny masterlist coming soon.

You can still create things for prompts, but they won't count as part of promptathon. You can post them to the comm as per usual, but please give it a couple of days first to give us chance to recover from promptathon and so the comm doesn't get flooded with fiC.

TAKE A BOW, BEST BAR, FOR A FANTASTIC PROMPTATHON :D


 
 
03 August 2015 @ 11:41 pm
Things that have been happening around the comm:

In case you didn't notice the sudden HUGE AMOUNTS OF FIC that appeared in the last week, we've just had an AU Exchange. It was made of wonderful! The Masterlist is HERE for you to catch up on any you might have missed.

We have an Ant Man Discussion Post happening for those who want to discuss the latest Marvel film. (Have you seen it yet? Thinky thoughts? What did you think of THAT scene and THOSE after credit scenes?)

And there's an SDCC News/Chat Post going on too! (I have finally watched the dubsmash war between Angents of SHIELD and Peggy Carter. Win/win.)

Then if you take a closer look at the new community banner for August you might notice some familiar prompts in the background... because they're all prompts from our summer promptathons, the 2015 edition of which is on the way! AS IN THIS WEEK. SO WATCH THIS SPACE FOR PROMPTATHON 2015 MADNESS.

Are you excited yet?!

(If you feel inspired to make a new comm banner...here's how ))

Finally, if there's anything happening in the wider internets and the lands of the real world relevant to our interests let us know in the comments. Happy August folks!
 
 
Hello Best of Bars!

First of all, apologies for the late posting.  RL was particularly Wicked this week (150 e-mails by 10 am, anyone...??)

Anyway.  Today's topic is our favourite assassins in a role that we just saw Natasha in at the end of AoU:  teaching others.  Baby Avengers, green SHIELD recruits, female Hawkeyes, Clint's kids, each other ...  Just imagine:

"That's not the the way to kill a 200-pound man.  You have to adjust the amout of poison in the [arrow head][umbrella tip] to body weight..."

"Oh, honey.  Dadddy won't be happy when he sees you holding a knife like that."

"He works with these punk kids, who should really be taught a lesson..."


So.  Let us have your recs (self-recs are welcome!!), three sentence fics (and prompts therefore), head canons, meta ...  And above all:

And as always, here are your ATTF guidelines:

Things to remember:
1) Always label NSFW (Not Safe For Work) stuff in the title and post under a cut.
2) Fic and artwork needs to have a rating and warnings (or you can say that you’ve chosen not to use warnings).
3) For people with annoying internet connections, say in the title if a comment is graphic/images/gif-heavy and post picspams under a cut.
4) Have a damn good time! (Because if that’s not happening then this post has clearly failed.)
5) There are going to be Age of Ultron spoilers in this post, so if you haven’t seen it yet, probably best to skip it unless you don’t mind getting spoiled!

Timeline
Now (Saturday, January 31st) - February 6th 12 midnight eastern: Prompt! Prompt ALL THE THINGS!
February 7th - February 15th (midnight eastern): Fill those prompts like you've never filled prompts before!

Prompts: All things Valentine's Day or love (romantic or otherwise!) related. Friendship? UST? Developing romantic feelings? Badass mission that just so happens to involve obnoxious heart-shaped candies? All are welcome here!


Prompting
Prompts go in the comments to this post. List each prompt as its own separate comment.


Fills
Fills: Post your fill, or a link to your fill - be it fic, art, a video of you preforming an interpretive dance, etc - as a reply to the prompt comment. Please don't post your fanwork separately to the comm, otherwise b_c might explode from the squee. We'll also create a masterlist post updated as fills come in, so rest assured that everyone will see your work!

Please include title, rating, and appropriate warnings in the subject line of your fill.

Prompts may have multiple fills, please give love to your fellow creators!


Okay, best bar! Go wild!

Greetings, patrons of the Very Best Bar™!

So I tackled [livejournal.com profile] enigma731 to the ground and stole ATTF from her (her version of the story may differ) because it's been some time since we had one of my favorite things:

never let me near photoshop again

THAT'S RIGHT. IT'S TIME FOR THE 3-SENTENCE FICATHON: HOLIDAY EDITION. But, Frea, you say. What IS a holiday-edition themed ficathon? I'm so glad you asked! Here's how it works:

  1. Post a prompt — one per comment!

  2. Reply with fic that's maximum three sentences long.

  3. Profit! Have fun!

Today's theme: the holidays! Christmas, Kwanzaa, Chanukah, Festivus, etc. etc. are all open. Want Clint and Natasha dealing with last minute Christmas sales to go buy Pepper something nice? Prompt it. Waiting up to catch Santa in the act or traveling to the North Pole to do so? Promppppppt. Befriending some reindeer? You know what to do. Just remember: keep it to three sentences or less.

It's gonna be great!

The legal text
1) Always label NSFW (Not Safe For Work) stuff in the title and post under a cut.
2) Fic and artwork needs to have a rating and warnings (or you can say that you’ve chosen not to use warnings).
3) For people with annoying internet connections, say in the title if a comment is graphic/images/gif-heavy and post picspams under a cut.
4) Have a damn good time! (Because if that’s not happening then this post has clearly failed.)

Happy Friday, bar!

It's been a little while since I've hosted. I have to admit, this is not an original ATTF topic, it's just one that I thought was so much fun in the past, it had to be done again.

So, perhaps a little ironically, today I present to you our second (as far as I know) Cliche & Cliche Subversion comment ficathon. The way this works is that you post a cliche you'd like to see written or subverted. Then another fine bar patron writes a comment fic accordingly. You can specify whether or not you want your prompt cliche subverted, or leave it up to others to choose.

Please also feel free to discuss the particularly delicious subject matter of cliches for our favorite assassins. :)

Things to remember, particularly with regards to fic:

1) Always label NSFW (Not Safe For Work) stuff in the title and post under a cut.
2) Fic and artwork needs to have a rating and warnings (or you can say that you’ve chosen not to use warnings).
3) For people with annoying internet connections, say in the title if a comment is graphic/images/gif-heavy and post picspams under a cut.
4) Have a damn good time! (Because if that’s not happening then this post has clearly failed.)

Hello patrons of the Very Best Bar (TM)!

I hope this Friday (or early Saturday as I am a little late with this) finds you well and that our wonderful Promptathon is feeding your plot bunnies. :P But if not, never fear! I bring our semi-reulgar Three Sentence Ficathon to help get the ball rolling!

So, just as a reminder, this is how this works:
- post a prompt - one per comment for ease please
- reply with fic! Max. three sentences long
- have fun!

And our usual reminders:
1) Always label NSFW (Not Safe For Work) stuff in the title and post under a cut.

2) Fic and artwork needs to have a rating and warnings (or you can say that you’ve chosen not to use warnings).
3) For people with annoying internet connections, say in the title if a comment is graphic/images/gif-heavy and post picspams under a cut.
4) Have a damn good time! (Because if that’s not happening then this post has clearly failed.)

The Good Ship C/N Promptathon
of Magic and Joy: Round 3



Break out the confetti canons!!

RULES ON POSTING SUBMISSIONS
(please read before you post! <3)


The Rules. Just follow these three easy steps!

1. Leave a Prompt.
Prompts can be anything--simple or elaborate, words or pictures, songs or poems, lyrics or phrases. Anything that, to you, inspires a C/N fanwork. Use your imagination. Go WILD. All we ask is that you place anything NSFW under a cut or link, use trigger warnings when appropriate, and place anything spoiler-y under a cut with a warning. As this is a Clint/Natasha promptathon, your prompts and fanworks can include other characters, but the central focus must be on Clint and/or Natasha. If you’re posting large images, please be mindful of members with slower Internet connections and place the image under a cut or link.

And leave as many prompts as you want. I’m serious. Keep coming back, y’all. We want all the prompts we can possibly get Also, be sure to leave each prompt as a separate comment.

2. Wait a week.
Keep leaving prompts and plan your fanworks! This is a time for celebration and creating all of the things. Work hard, shippers.

3. Submit C/N fanwork like there is no tomorrow.
All submissions should either be posted here or linked to this post via a comment. We will make an official post about rules in the time leading up to submissions. Please read it before posting, as responsible partying is to be encouraged at all times.

Timeline

Prompting starts today, August 2nd and will remain open until August 9th. Submissions will start on August 16th, and will remain open until August 31st.  It is, in fact, A WHOLE MONTH OF PROMPTATHON.

If you can’t complete your fanwork by August 31st, that’s okay. You’re still welcome to post your fanwork to the community! However, the promptathon masterlist will only include fanworks from August 16-31.

What we hope to accomplish with all this promptathon-iness:


  • A chance to get in the game. Been wanting to jump into the C/N fanwork scene but not sure where to start? Now’s the time. There’s no length requirement on the works submitted, you can focus on drabbles and vidlets and short and sweet projects (or do longer more epic stuff if that strikes your fancy as well).  It’s really entirely up to you. We’re just hoping to provide a fun, no-pressure environment. If all you want to do is post prompts and share in the squee, that’s fine too!




  • Meet new and awesome people. Newbie or lurker? Here is the perfect opportunity to say hello!



  • Ship like you’ve never shipped before.


If you have any questions, feel free to contact the mod team.

Have fun, everyone. Now fly, my pretties, fly!

SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED.


Thanks to everyone who participated!

Title: Five Times S.H.I.E.L.D. Tried To Recruit Clint Barton (And One Time He Said "Yes")
Rating: T
Warnings: some swears, reference to off-screen violence
Characters/Relationships: Clint Barton & Melinda May; Nick Fury; Maria Hill; Phil Coulson; Jasper Sitwell; John Garrett; Victoria Hand
Summary: The first time Clint Barton comes to the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D., his face is on fliers advertising him as The Amazing Hawkeye, The World's Greatest Marksman.

A/N:  Clint backstory, pre-Natasha; crossover with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. by virtue of some of the characters.  (That's okay to post here, yes?)  This is based on a desire by [livejournal.com profile] franztastisch for a fic in which it is Melinda May who recruits Clint into S.H.I.E.L.D.

Funny that I'd be filling a prompt, like, a week before Promptathon, but I had some crappy stuff happen to me at work and needed the distraction...

Find it on AO3
