    Summary

    I host a writing challenge called Writing Prompt Wednesday on my Tumblr (unforth-ninawaters). I've written hundreds of prompts at this point and it occurred to me that having them all on AO3 would make it easier for others to find them, so here are all the prompts I've done. Each chapter is one week worth of themed prompts; themes are tagged in the Additional Tags. Some prompts imply MCD and other potentially triggering content.

    If you have an idea for a theme for me to write prompts about, please let me know in a comment or on Tumblr. If you write a story for ANY FANDOM based on these prompts, please add it to the Writing Prompt Wednesday collection!

    Summary

    In which Ashley invites herself to Brendon's surprise birthday party for Ryan, Pete and Patrick unknowingly try something new, Gabe and William try to no avail to find some alone time, Joe and Victoria don't necessarily understand the concept of not getting people high before their surprise party, and Josh Dun, the camera guy, saves the day.

    (But in all seriousness- the cameramen just mostly want to not film these people anymore.)

    Summary

    Ever since he was younger, Lance Sanchez wanted to be on stage. The idea of being in the limelight and being famous was something he thought was so achievable he could taste it. Throughout his life he chases his passion, enrolling in one of the best theater art schools. It's his freshman year, and already he has a role in the schools musical that year. He would be happy for this. If it wasn't for his archrival, Keith Kogane.

    The musical au that no one thought we needed. I'll try to update frequently (maybe every Thursday if I'm dedicated enough).

    Rating will go up.

    Summary

    Keith knew that his luck probably had little to do with Paula the Bobble Head. In fact, he had a sneaking suspicion that it had to do with the constantly ticking timer creeping up on his left thumb. A Soul Counter, as most called it. It was a natural phenomenon occurring in humans. In each person intended there was an ever present timer, constantly ticking down until the time where they would find their soulmate. When the timer would reach zero, a second tattoo-like marking would appear on the person’s skin – their Soul Mark. This would appear on the person’s soulmate in much the same place. Each pair’s Soul Mark was unique to just the two of them.

    OR: The one where Keith was working and he found his soulmate - who just happened to be his favorite actor, Lance MotherF**king McClain.

    Summary

    Special Agent Bucky Barnes doesn't think of himself as a hero. He's dedicated to his career, and if that keeps him far away from home, all the better. His parents think that he should get a less dangerous job and meet a nice Brooklyn girl (or boy) to settle down with. In Brooklyn.

    That sounds like Bucky's definition of a living hell. He's been running from it for years.

    Enter Steve Rogers. Brooklyn boy. Not always nice. Hot as hell.

    And a temptation Bucky can't resist, even after their initial failure of a meeting.

     

    This is an AU of the Steve Rogers problem but stands alone - you don't have to read that part to understand this.

    Summary

    Merlin was not about to be pawned off.
    "Wait just a minute-" Merlin interjected.
    "I am not finished!" Uther barked. "The reason I called you in was; because of your little publicity stunt our fan base has gone from millions to hundreds of millions and if they find out your little thing was just a misunderstanding the Pendragon name is ruined, so you two better suck it up and face your consequences because you two are getting engaged for real!"
    or
    The one where Arthur and Merlin are both actors who don't really like each other and get a picture taken of them that looks like a proposal. The two have to bear with each and get over their hate to save the Pendragon name.

    Summary

    Laura is Carmilla's on-screen love interest in her first major role. And if you'll ask her, she prefers Laura to be her only on-screen love interest.

    And if somehow it becomes off-screen too, then Carmilla really won't mind

     

    aka that cliche story where you fall in love with your co-star

    Summary

    Apollo Justice, 25. Current profession: stage manager. Current objective: get this godforsaken show off the ground with as few mishaps as possible, which is easier said than done. Especially with a leading actor like Klavier Gavin.
    Or, an alternate universe story in which Apollo suffers the trials and tribulations of professional theater, most certainly does not fall in love, and maybe learns a few things about himself on the way.
    (A/N: Updates sporadically, as I have time to write. Thank you for sticking with me!)
