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.

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 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…

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 when you make your post, don’t forget to tag it with “halfamoon challenge” so we can find it!

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.

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

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!

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!

Apologies for the delay in the posts - we're still working out things like queueing of posts at Tumblr and crossposting here at DW and LJ.

Day 1 of the Prompt Challenge is Legends:



What stories do we tell about female characters? What are their epics, their tales of loyalty, love, and legend? Or what stories are told in the dark of the night, whispered behind hands, or told in lurking chatrooms of the modern world?

(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!)

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

You can post a response to a prompt at any time, and (where possible or appropriate) responses may be cross-posted to the Tumblr for content.

Some people have stated that they'd still like to produce fanworks for halfamoon but haven't had the time until now. Because of this we've decided to extend halfamoon until the end of February.

So if you've been inspired by one of our prompts or by an idea of your own, you still have time to create something and post it to the community!

I'd like to remind people that all types of fanworks are welcome here: fic, art, podfic, recs, crafts, vids, anything as long as it focuses on one or more women.

I hope this will give everyone who wants to an opportunity to share their work with us!

What does this mean for you? Good news: halfamoon will happen this year! It will run as usual from February 1 til 14. I'm looking forward to seeing you all then!

Since I was a day late with the official opening due to RL issues--for which I apologize once again--I'm extending halfamoon's posting period by an extra two days.

I would also like to welcome [livejournal.com profile] emmee_kay to our mod team. She has graciously agreed to help with the tags.

Thank you for your continued participation in this community!

Thank you all for participating. Your enthusiasm makes halfamoon one of the highlights of my year. ♥
