We understand that some fandoms are so in need of love that they have few or even no prompts yet, and that just won’t do. So for November, in addition to being able to pick prompts from the Chocobo Down Master List and the October Prompt-a-thon ( LJ | DW ), you can also leave and fill delectable new prompts from awesome small fandoms here!
Only the fandoms listed under "Teeny Bitty Fandoms" in the November theme post can be prompted for this time (though as always, feel free to fill prompts from other fandoms!). Those fandoms are:
- Final Fantasy I
- Final Fantasy II
- Final Fantasy III
- Final Fantasy V and Legend of the Crystals
- Final Fantasy XI
- Vagrant Story
- Final Fantasy Tactics - any entry
- Final Fantasy XIV
- Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within
- Final Fantasy Unlimited
- Final Fantasy Mystic Quest
- Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light
- Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles - any entry
- Teams from previous rounds of the Chocobo Races still apply! If you're not on a team, you must choose one in order to take part in the festivities, but don't worry, it's easy! You can sign up at the Choose a Team post ( LJ | DW ). In order for your contributions to count for your team, your sign up comment needs to be dated before any prompts or fills you might make — that's it! You can sign up any time throughout the month up until the 25th.
- Prompts earn points! Each prompt that's at least one sentence and descriptive (think scenarios, or see our DOINK! guidelines on prompts) earns your team one point. You can get up to five points for leaving up to five prompts.
These do have to be substantive prompts using your own words: one word prompts, single phrases/quotes, lyrics, etc. do not count. We encourage descriptive, open prompts that can be filled with fic or art, because you never know who’s going to like your ideas!
- You cannot fill your own prompts.
- However, you can fill prompts left by either team. Start your strategic alliances!
- Fills earn lots of points! Since this prompt-a-thon is limited to Teeny Bitty Fandoms, per this month's rules, every fill for a prompt from the prompt-a-thon is automatically worth fifteen points!
You may post your fills as replies to the comment with the prompt, or you can post the fills on AO3 (in our Chocobo Down 2011 collection), or both — it’s up to you.
- Please do use the subject line when prompting to make it easier for mods to count up points (and for those looking for a specific team/fandom). Here are some examples:
Subject: FFIII / Arc/Alus / Team Tonberry!All prompt examples adapted from prompts from previous rounds!
Aged-up: many years have passed, and now they're sharing a room and talking the night away again.
Subject: FFV / Faris / Team Cactuar!
Faris teaching the rest of the party how to be more manly.
Subject: FFCC: Crystal Bearers / Belle/Layle / Team Tonberry!
(preferably post-game). Dancing around issues, trying their hardest to act like they don't really care. Further suggestions: 'let's go far away from here' and 'not giving up on you.'
- Please also use the subject line when posting your fills! Leaving the fandom/characters/rating and your team name will help the mods keep track of your points.
Please remember to also check the Dreamwidth mirror post! You may find other prompts there, and prompts and fills in either place will count for points!
