This is the post you reply to when you finish a fill.

Even if you posted it in the prompt thread or another archive, please post it here so that people can easily find completed stories.

Do NOT post WIPS (works in progress) here. Post them in the WIP post.

DO NOT post ongoing stories here. Post them in http://daforgepromptmeme.dreamwidth.org/851.html.

FORMATTING GUIDELINES -- READ THIS IF YOU'VE NEVER POSTED FIC BEFORE:

Please include JUST THE LINK to the story

Please use warnings for violence and triggers. (Abuse, child abuse, rape, noncon, torture, gore, etc, use your common sense, and if someone asks you to put on a warning, put on the warning and don't fight about it.)

Please give your fic a rating. Yes, you may use the rating system that's standard in your country.

Here's a USA rating guideline:

G: ok for everyone including children.

PG: school-age children and up. Kissing and mild violence like a fistfight is ok, but no blood, gore, or even mentions of explicit sex.

PG-13: For teens and adults. Violence, discussion of sex, and "adult themes" are ok. But no blood, gore, or explicit sex. FWIW, 99% of Star Trek eps are PG-13.

R: 17+. The difference between R and NC17 is in the descriptions. If the sex is vaugly described, it's probably R. If the story takes place in a warzone but the descriptions don't go into every exploded organ, it's probably R.

NC17: Explicit porn and torture, usually. Often PWPs, or porn with(out) plot, or plot, what plot? These stories are welcome but please rate them.

We do not warn for LGBTQAII here. If you have a problem with that, please go away.

As always: Be kind, Have fun!

Post your WIPS (works in progress) here.

WIPs are stories that:

- You've completed but want feedback on.
- A multi-chapter story you're releasing 1 chap at a time.
- Any story that isn't finished.

Posting your WIP is optional. You may finish your fic and then post it.

Post finished fic in the Filled Prompts Post.

Please include JUST THE LINK to the story.

You can tag if you want to, but it's not required. Try to use consistency. Do not editorialize in tags. (No sentences, just words.)

Please use warning(s) for violence and triggers. (Abuse, child abuse, rape, noncon, torture, gore, etc. Use your common sense, and if someone asks you to put on a warning, put on the warning and don't fight about it.)

Please give your fic a rating. Yes, you may use the rating system that's standard in your country.

Here's a USA rating guideline:

G: ok for everyone including children

PG: School-age children and up. (Think Disney/Pixar.) Kissing and mild violence like a fistfight is ok, but no blood, gore, or mentions of explicit sex.

PG-13: For teens and adults. Violence, discussion of sex, and "adult themes" are ok. But no blood, gore, or explicit sex. FWIW, 99% of Star Trek eps are PG-13.

R: 17+. The difference between R and NC17 is in the descriptions. If the sex is vaugly described, it's probably R. If the story takes place in a warzone but the descriptions don't go into every exploded organ, it's probably R.

NC17: Explicit porn and torture, usually. Often PWPs, or porn with(out) plot, or plot, what plot? These stories are welcome but please rate them.

Prompting Guidelines:





  • All stories must feature Data and Geordi in some way. Gen fic, or fic without a romance, are okay. Just be aware that your audience came here for romance/shippiness.

  • Please don't edit or delete your prompt. You never know who's working on it. Art takes time, so be patient. (Meanwhile, post more prompts!)

  • It's easier on the creators if you post one prompt per reply

  • Yes, you can prompt for porn, kink, and whatever your filthy mind comes up with, you reprobate. Please warn for triggers (abuse, torture, child abuse, gore, edge-play, etc).

  • Most importantly: A prompt is a challenge, not a request. Please feel free to be as creative and brave as you like with your prompt!




Responses



  • Creators, feel free to reply to prompters if you have questions/comments before you start working.

  • Post your fic wherever you like, including this post, but please post a link in the Filled Prompts Post. This helps readers find the finished fic.

  • Optionally, you can post a work in progress in the WIPS post

  • PUT [FILL] IN YOUR REPLY SUBJECT HEADER OR NO ONE WILL FIND IT OR READ IT.


No bashing people or prompts. If you don't like a thing, just scroll on by. It's ok to disagree with someone, but disagree with respect. Craig Ferguson said: "Does this need to be said? Does this need to be said now? Does this need to be said by me now?" If the answer is no, then keep scrolling.



What makes a good prompt?



The point of a writing/art prompt is to challenge the creator to try something new, and to stimulate creativity. As a prompter, you can help by not making your prompt too specific OR too vague.

A happy medium is when you describe a situation, or a problem, but leave out enough details for the writer to fill in. Try not to specify HOW the problem is solved, or HOW the story specifically begins or ends.

Another prompting trick is to just suggest a few story elements, like: a card game, a broken shuttle craft, and a box of red skittles. An artist then has to string those elements together to make a story.

A rule of thumb is: if you find yourself writing paragraphs to describe your prompt, you're probably writing a story outline, not a story suggestion. You've made that story your own, and you're the best person to write it. Give it a try! Writers become writers by writing. :)

Just remember: Be kind, Have Fun!
