Word of Welcome
Welcome to the One Direction prompt library!!!
With this library I am hoping to create a world where people can share their prompts with the rest of the fandom, and where authors may claim prompts that they really like.
The prompt library is currently a work in progress. As you can see the pages that are supposed to hold the rules don’t exist right now, and since there have been no submissions as of yet, the pages that will hopefully contain prompts later on are still filled with a sad little x.
Although the rules aren’t fully up yet, if you see this post and you have a prompt that you would love to submit please feel free to do so.
Here’s a short overview of what the submission message should contain:
- Rating (mature and up, teen and up, general audiences)
Whether it’s a “quick fic” (e.g. a short prompt) or a prompt for a longer fic (anything over 2k words)
- One prompt
Only prompts that come in as a submission will be taken into consideration.
We will select prompts based on how interesting they are and if there are already fics written with the same type of prompt. A prompt like “Harry/Louis: anxiety disorder” will not be put into the database as it is not much of a prompt but more of a general suggestion. A prompt should look somewhat like “Harry/Louis: After Zayn has left, Louis isn’t doing so well anymore. He is diagnosed with an anxiety disorder in the middle of their current tour. He hasn’t told Harry yet because he is afraid of how his boyfriend might react, so instead he tries to cope on his own by drinking and smoking the pre-show jitters away.”
Please do keep in mind that if you submit your prompt to the database, the claiming author may use the prompt as they want and put in changes that you possibly disagree with. The author does not write for you, it is not a kinkmeme and although we will urge the author to credit the library, they may choose not to.
If you are an author who is frequently out of prompts, please do send in a message when you claim a prompt so we can update the prompt status as claimed. If you end up not getting around to writing it, the prompt will go back into the active list.
Anyway, I think that’s the most of it right now… If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask!
