Emperor's Edge Prompt Meme!
« on: February 20, 2013, 08:07:19 pm »
I've wanted to start a prompt meme for EE for a while, because I think it would be a WONDERFUL IDEA, and perhaps get more fic out there to tide us over as we wait for the final books to be published.

Here's how a prompt meme works: People give short prompts, which include a character(s) or a relationship, and some sort of clue as to what the prompter would like to see happen. If someone sees a prompt that catches their eye, then they write the story and let whoever wrote the prompt know.

Examples (chosen by their unlikelihood):

1) snuggling, Maldynado/Isabel

2) Books/Basilard, explicit sex, under the bleachers

3) Sicarius, eating an ice cream sundae

4) The team goes undercover as interior decorators.


Like that! Brief prompts that let people know what you would like while still giving the writer room to work.

I think what will work best is if people post prompts in this thread, and then people reply to their posts with links to where they've posted the fic. I know that prompt memes are usually anonymous, but that is hard to do here, so let's not. Let's also try to keep chatter out of this thread, so that the prompts and fills don't get lost.

I want Sic/Am snuggles. And kissing. That is all.

i want Sic/Am but for them to run across one of Sic's old lovers. How would Am react?
""Yes" He kissed her on the neck, and the warmth of his lips sent a wave of heat through her." Sicarius and Amaranthe

Sarah you have now started the official plot bunny breeding facility! I suspect we'll get smut hares and rhyme rabbits out of this too.  Here's a couple of ideas to contribute to the frenzy.

A scene from EE1 from Isobel's POV
A newspaper article (or set of articles) describing the events in one of the books.

Totally stealing from Jen, but them running into one of Ammy's old lovers would be awesome too.

On another note, these are really interesting! Makes me want to write again! :)

I'd like to know HOW Sicarius managed to get lovers with his rather lacking conversational skills. "Want to .... help me sharpen my knife?"

I'd like to see a fic where Am finally convinces Sic to let her tame that mop of hair he has.  :)
"A stray cat perhaps."
"Adorable, loyal, and lovable?"
"Nosy, curious, and independent."  His eyes crinkled.  "Not something you plan to bring home."
Amaranthe found hope in his light tone.  "But something you appreciate once it's there?"

The team must disguise themselves/participate in a cabaret show during a mission.

Tell Isabel "Cluck, clu-cluck. Cluck." She'll know what I mean
Could you imagine if she and Rosalinda got together?  o_O   Although I'd like to think she'd at least protect Mal from the Glorious Chikin Revolution!

(more info about the Resistance here)

Well thanks to the above I have been trapped in the murky world of Labyrinth fanfic for the last week. Ria, I blame you  >:(

SO.. 1) I would like to see Sicarius run the Labyrinth. Or Amaranthe. Any of the team would be amusing.

2) I'd like a one-shot with the team on truth serum hehe.

3) Some pre-canon Books.

4) A story where Am is the scary assassin and Sicarius is a goody two-shoes enforcer.

5) Some more stuff on Pike.

And I too would love an Isabel POV. Cluck
"Oh good," Maldynado said. "Isabel got out."

I completely second all of these, but especially 2 and 4.
