And today's theme is Sacrifice.

Women sacrifice a lot to do what needs to be done – we’re not even talking about giving up life or love or family, but even just the time and energy to keep everything going. But, yes, sometimes it’s about literally dying for the things she thinks are important or for the people she loves.

Tell us of her sacrifices, the things she’s done and why she’s done them.

Graphics, gifsets, meta, links, fics, graphics, art, and recs - anything is welcome about any female character.

All prompts are simply places to start - don’t feel that you have to stick with the ideas asked, or with the character displayed in the header! Go for your life!

Please don’t forget to tag your works!

Day 13 is about Partnership

So many different kinds of partnerships between women - usually friends, but not always. Sometimes it’s just being in the same damn boat together, bailing out the water. They don’t even have to like each other for that!

This is a particularly rare trope; there is frequently very little middle ground given between women - they're either besties or sworn enemies, and when they're sworn enemies, it's usually over a guy. Rare is the story that is told about women who simply...get along for the sake of the mission, but don't end up liking each other any better.

Today, give us women in partnerships, working together, learning to like each other, learning to dislike each other, just putting their oar in together.

Graphics, gifsets, meta, links, fics, graphics, art, and recs - anything is welcome about any female character.

All prompts are simply places to start - don’t feel that you have to stick with the ideas asked, or with the character displayed in the header! Go for your life!

Day 12 is all about Getting The Job Done

A woman’s gotta do what a woman’s gotta do, through prejudice, bigotry, and stupidity, rain or shine, life and living, and all the bullshit we have to put up with.

Today, give us your female characters toughing it out but getting the job done.

Graphics, gifsets, meta, links, fics, graphics, art, and recs - anything is welcome about any female character. All prompts are simply places to start - don’t feel that you have to stick with the ideas asked, or with the character displayed in the header! Go for your life!

And don’t forget to tag your work!

Day 11's prompt is Challenge

She likes a challenge. She lives for the challenge. She is a challenge. Today’s prompt is for the women who push back in some way or another.

Graphics, gifsets, meta, links, fics, graphics, art, and recs - anything is welcome about any female character.

Okay, so it’s always fun to meet other fans of the female characters that you love, get to know them, exchange gifsets, meta, fanworks, and become friends, so here’s a friending meme for the Halfamoon Challenge 2017!

This post is for celebrating and loving your favorite under-appreciated women.

Rules nicked from bofoddity:


1. Start a thread and put the character's name and the canon they come from in the subject line.

2. Those who love the character comment on the thread with squee, thoughts, fic/art/vid recs, picspams, essays, links and everything they can think of. Make sure your character gets all the love and the attention she deserves.

3. If a character has a thread and you want to talk about her, comment to the thread in question. General comments and threads for new characters go to the main post.

4. Focus on the love. This is an all positivity, all time post. Embrace your happy!

5. Absolutely no bashing allowed. Please avoid making negative comparisons to other characters, other character types and "well this character sucks more!" kind of comments. Those characters and character types have their fans too and hey, it's a love post. Save negativity for other things.
No bashing actresses or the other versions of the character either. Keep in mind that mileages vary and what doesn't work for you may work for someone else.

Day 9 is about Spirit

Whether it’s an indomitable spirit, or a sense of the greater picture, or in matters of faith or spirituality, today we’d like to see your take on women of spirit.

The unsung hero is a woman who’s a hero but goes unrecognised. Her accomplishments, when listed, are significant on their own, but when attached to her name go unnoticed.

This is her day to shine and be appreciated!

Day 7 is for the Squeaky Wheel

People pay less attention to women - did you know that? As a result, women get hung with labels such as ‘nagging’, ‘shrill’, and ‘fishwife’. We get told we’re too loud, too opinionated, too outspoken, too angry. And as in real life, so it is in fiction.

Today is the day for all the female characters who can’t keep quiet, who have to speak out - for whatever reason: good, bad, unselfish, self-serving, or all of the above.

Do you know an exchange, fest, challenge, etc. focused on female characters? Whether it's running now or later in the year, advertise it in the comments and help interested people find it!

Day 6 of the Prompt Challenge is about Choices.

The act of choosing between possibilities is an interesting one - how do our favourite female characters think, what goes through their head when they have a decision to make? Where are their priorities, and how do their actions reflect who they are?

Give us her good choices and her bad. An excess of choice from which she can select an option, or no choice at all (or, at least, a choice with an alternative that she can’t allow to happen). Tell us about the decisions she makes, for better or for worse, and how she makes it, what she might have to give up on the way, and what she might find…if she’s lucky…

You go out and review woman-centric fanworks. Then you drop a link to your review in the comments to this post.

For every review you get points. If you leave a review with 23 words, you'll get 23 points. Only your own words count, quotes don't.
In the end your points get tallied up, and the person with the most points win.

The person with the most points wins a $20 Amazon voucher, sponsored by [personal profile] tielan.
The person in second place wins a $5 Amazon voucher, sponsored by [personal profile] sl_walker

So you have the chance to win something and creators will get more feedback - it's a win all around!

The review hunt will run until Monday 13th, 22:00 Central European Time. What's that in your time zone?


If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Have fun!


Edited to add: if you post links to reviews more than once, please add your later comments as a reply underneath your first comment. Thank you!

The Review Hunt is now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated! Winners will be announced soon.

On Day 5 of [community profile] halfamoon we say...Beware The Quiet Ones...

She’s not the showy or sexy woman - the one that everyone notices - but she has depths...Mariana Trench depths. And occasionally, sometimes, there’s a kaiju lurking in the deeps...

Today’s prompt is for the “second string” woman. She’s not the heroine, she’s not the heroine’s best friend, or the villain of the piece, she’s the background, the admin, the grease quietly keeping everything going - as women have done since time immemorial - and then, sometimes, she steps out of line and it's surprising and unexpected and challenging.

Tell us about the 'unexpected woman' - the one that nobody sees coming, and all of a sudden, she's there and she's not happy.

Rec meme! You ask for recs and others provide.

All fandoms and all types of fanworks are welcome, as well as rec requests for canons or for certain tropes, as long as it's woman-centric.

Feel free to self rec.

Have fun!

Day 4 is for Friends and Friendship

Through thick and thin, in agreement and conflict, shoring things up when they get wobbly and sometimes speaking truths that don’t want to be heard…she’ll be there for her. This is mostly a prompt about women being friends with women - and the definition of friendship can be as broad or as narrow as you wish!

(All prompts are simply places to start - don’t feel that you have to stick with the questions asked, or with the character displayed in the header! Go for your life!)

Even when you’re a superhero and your sister is a secret agent, home is where the pizza fights are.

The prompt for Day 3 is home, for that sense of family that we love our female characters to have. Where does she retreat? Where do she feel safe? Who makes her feel comfortable, 'at home'? And yes, of course the concept of “found family” is perfectly acceptable!

Day 2 of the Prompt Challenge is Confrontational

"I can’t be having with that!"

Sugar and spice and all things nice...? Well, not always! Today’s prompt is for female characters who don’t play nice, who speak up and shout out, who see the problem and meet it head-on - or even one of the nice ones who reaches the end of her tether. We’ve seen what happens when women decide to take action - even over the last ten days - things start happening: No More Ms Nice Lady!
