Prompt Challenge - Day 14



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!

Prompt Challenge - Day 13



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.

Prompt Challenge - Day 12



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.

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!

Prompt Challenge - Day 7



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.

Prompt Challenge - Day 6



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…

Prompt Challenge - Day 5



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.

Prompt Challenge - Day 4



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!

Prompt Challenge - Day 3



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!

Prompt Challenge - Day 2



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!

Prompt Challenge - Day 1

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!)

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.

Gushing + a Question

 I just came across this comm a few days ago and I've been enjoying reading through all the posts so far. What a wonderful idea. (Im also sad that its only for 3 weeks...it should be a permanent thing!)

I do have a question for the members, I'm doing a character manifest for [livejournal.com profile] het_reccers on the wonderful Helen Magnus from Sanctuary. Basically its an opus as to why she's fabulous and why I love her. I will post it here when I'm done it (in the next few days). 

One of the components is to include recommended fanfics for the character. I read quite a bit of Sanctuary fanfic but my query is for fics regarding just Helen or Helen-centric non-shipper/light shipper fics. Does anybody know of some great ones? Have you written any? 
Thanks oodles!

Star Trek: Number One

[livejournal.com profile] pike_numberone is hosting a week-long Number One Gen Fest, and is looking for drabbles, fanart, stories, meta, and recs about Number One that focusses not on a romantic relationship with Pike, but on her character as a woman, a Starfleet officer, and an individual. TOS, AOS, Mirror Universe, whatever strikes your fancy!
