everything is fest

For the writing prompt, 28 with andreil please

I…… hope this is the right prompt. I’m pretty sure this is highkey OOC but a sleep-deprived writer tends to make bad decisions.

28. “That’s almost exactly the opposite of what I meant.”

“Watch the cats while I’m gone,” Neil had said. “Be safe. I’ll be back in a few hours.” Andrew could take care of cats. They’re cats, so there’s very little they could really do. Andrew’s pretty sure that Neil’s worrying a bit too much. He knows how to take care of cats—not that they really need much nurturing—but as always, he insists on telling him to watch them every time he goes out.

This time, Neil is going out to meet Allison, who is in town for a visit or something like that. Though the relationship between the original Foxes improved with Neil’s efforts, there’s still a certain antagonism between Andrew and Allison. There will always be that small rift, especially considering how long she had called him “monster” with no care for what that had meant, so Andrew opted out of joining him. Neil hadn’t even tried asking in the first place though, knowing he wouldn’t want to, and if he did feel the need to come along, he would have said so.

Does anyone remember how glorious and beautiful Berena were before all the post Kiev crap and get emo over it all?

Because, same.

Title: but we know where we belong
Rating: Mature
Pairing: ot4
Word Count: 17,700ish
Summary:

“What do you need, Louis?” Harry asks, though he fears the answer. Once upon a time, they’d have done anything for each other.

“I have gotten myself into something of a situation,” Louis says, after a long silence.

“And what situation is that?”

Louis looks over at him, but all of the light has left his face. His eyes are dark and tortured in a way Harry hadn’t often seen them. The last time they had gone this dark, their alpha was describing the way Harry’s sister screamed for mercy. They were his last words.

Harry wishes he could turn away again, but he endures.

“His name is Niall,” Louis says. “And he obeys his first moon in three days’ time.”

[Or Harry’s left any semblance of pack years ago, so pack comes to find him.]

5-DAY INCEPTION/BOND FANDOM ROUND ROBIN CHALLENGE 2017!

WHAT: for the second year running, two fandoms will spend 5 days battling it out over an assigned fic prompt

WHO: the inception and james bond fandoms, via the blogs @inceptiversary and @mi6-cafe (please follow one or both!)

WHERE: right here on tumblr - when you get tagged in the post, reblog it, add 50 words to the fic, and then tag someone who has not yet participated

WHEN: july 18 -22 inclusive, starting and ending at midnight ET (New York)

WHY: because we had an absolute blast last year (see the 2016 bond fandom thread vs. the inception thread - congrats team inception!); because fandom is a community and we want you all to get to know each other and be able to quickly identify fandom members whom you can tag; because we needed a fandom challenge where points are based on speed and not certain talent or creativity so nobody is left out; and because @castillon02 and @a-forger-and-a-point-man love these two fandoms very very much :D

no signups required. just watch for your fandom’s main blog to launch the round robin post at midnight ET when it becomes july 18. when you get tagged, you must write something - anything - to continue the story, between 10 and 50 words. we don’t care what it is, just move it along and tag the next person! it must be a person who hasn’t been tagged before! speed is everything! 

We’re Gonna Get to Know Each Other... Someday

This is post everything, angst-fest that I think resolves somewhat okay.  But I’m already in love with it so…. Up or downvote away (I’m a reddit kid), and I hope it speaks to a person or two.  Rated General Audiences in AO3 speak.

2017/2018 Rules, FAQ, and Welcome!

Hiya folks! Welcome to the 2017/2018 round of the Glimmer of Hob fest! You may remember Sugoi Deer of last year. Well, I’m rebranding, and for the second Hobi fic fest, there’s a new name and a new format!

Instead of involving Livejournal at all, everything for the fest will be centered around Twitter/Tumblr and AO3. Prompts will be submitted via Google spreadsheet rather than in the comments of a Livejournal post. In addition, fics will be submitted via AO3 directly. Hopefully, this change will make everything more convenient for everyone involved!

Now that the change announcements are out of the way, time for some information about the fest for people just joining this year and those who need a refresher course!

PROMPTING RULES

  • Do not write a small novel as your prompt. Prompts should be succinct and open enough to give the writer room to play around. However, prompts also shouldn’t be so sparse that the writer has nothing to work with.
    • BAD PROMPT EXAMPLE: Hoseok and Yoongi are rutabaga farmers in the 1920s. They’re neighbors and occasionally competition with one another until a drought happens. They’re left with no choice but to join forces for survival. Yoongi moves in with Hoseok and one night during a storm that finally comes, they wind up making out. Things are awkward from there for a while until eventually they talk about what happened. They decide they’d like it to keep happening. They live together as partners in both business and romance until A comes along and threatens to buy out Hoseok’s farm and disrupt their entire way of life. The fic ends with Hoseok and Yoongi still living together and still farming and everyone is happy. (Way way too specific.)
    • BAD PROMPT EXAMPLE: Jimin and Hoseok are neighbors and smut happens. (Way way too vague.)
    • GOOD PROMPT EXAMPLE: To say Hoseok is an overachiever would be an understatement. He’s got this compulsive need to be number one in everything. So when Seokjin comes along and starts to take Hoseok’s glory at work, delegating him to number two spot, Hoseok sets a plan in motion to get back on top–and it might involve getting on top of Seokjin. (Just enough info for writers to work with without stifling their creativity.)
  • List your dos and don’ts very carefully. Don’t expect a writer to read your mind and know you want lots of hand-holding if you don’t specify that in your do section. If you know you wouldn’t want to read mpreg, specify that you don’t want mpreg. Not keen on angst? Specify no angst.

WRITING RULES

  • Don’t panic. This fest is meant to be fun, not stressful. If at any point you feel you can’t continue, let me know. It’s totally okay and because this is a fest and not an exchange, no one will even know unless they hear it from you!
  • There is a zero-tolerance policy regarding plagiarism. This includes works by the same author previously published elsewhere. This fest requires brand new original work. Any works found to be plagiarized will be removed and the offending party will be banned from future participation.
  • Follow prompts to the best of your abilities but especially follow the prompter’s “don’t” list. For instance, if your chosen prompt specifies no smut, do not add smut. Submissions that do not follow this will be removed.
  • Your minimum word count for this fest is 2000. No less, but certainly more if your mojo allows.
  • Do not use stage names as primary name. For example, if you claim a fic in which Hoseok’s an underground rapper, you’re free to use J-Hope as his stage name. Do not use J-Hope as his actual name throughout the entire fic.
  • If your fic contains sensitive material, make use of the trigger warnings properly. For instance, if there is a scene that involves dubious consent, put that loud and clear in the warnings. If there’s talk of rape in a character’s past, write it in your warnings. If a scene involves drug or alcohol use, say so. I will remove fics from the collection and ban authors who do not tag sensitive material well.
  • Do NOT publicly reveal which fic is yours before official reveals are made. You’re free to let beta readers or friends in on what you’re working on as long as they don’t spill the beans publicly, either. Writers found in violation may be banned from future participation.
  • Do NOT post your work elsewhere, in whole or part, before reveals are made. You’re free to post your work wherever you want beginning 2/19 however!

FAQ

  • What is a fic fest? A fic fest is an event in which people submit prompts, writers choose prompts, and the end result is a lot of brand spankin’ new work to read!
  • How is this different from an exchange? With a fic exchange, you’re assigned a specific recipient and you must write prompts according to what that recipient wishes to receive. A fic fest offers a little more freedom - prompters don’t have to write, and writers don’t have to prompt. But you’re more than welcome to do both!
  • Can I submit more than one prompt? Absolutely! In fact, please do. The more prompts we have, the more options our writers will have. And, with any luck, more options means more participants. Hooray!
  • Can I claim more than one prompt? Short answer - no. Long answer - no, unless you submit your initial fic early and can definitely handle churning out a second. Should you fail to complete your second fic, though, you run the risk of not being able to participate in future fests.
  • Does it have to be a romantic ship? Can I request platonic ships? Yes, platonic ships are more than welcome! Your prompts don’t have to have a romantic slant to them. They don’t have to have smut if you don’t want smut. There doesn’t even have to be a pairing involved at all! The only requirement is that the fic’s main focus is Hoseok.
  • Can I request/write asexual/demisexual/genderfluid/transgender/etc. characters? You sure can! This fest welcomes all such interpretations as long as they’re handled in a respectful way.
  • Can I include other idols/actors? Sure! Crossovers are welcome. But please make sure the main focus is Hoseok.
  • Can I request OT3/4/+? You sure can! Just make sure you specify it in your prompt.
  • How will prompting work? Starting 6/30, you will be able to submit prompts to a spreadsheet. You may submit as many prompts as you’d like, but only one prompt per line in the spreadsheet.
  • How will claiming work? Starting 8/4, a google form will be available for you to submit your prompt requests. Your job as writer is to peruse the prompt sheet, pick out three (3) prompts that you’d like to work on, and submit them. You will be required to list your prompt choices in order from your most-desired choice, first backup, and second backup. You’ll then receive confirmation within 72 hours about which prompt you were assigned. For instance, if you select prompts 4, 2, and 1 as your top choices, but 4 was taken by another writer earlier on, you will be assigned prompt 2 instead. If 4 and 2 are taken, you will receive prompt 1. If all three are taken, I will notify you so that you can make three other choices. The spreadsheet will be kept as current as possible to minimize attempts at claiming already-claimed prompts.

What is your absolute favorite Stemily moment? Or maybe top 3.

Oh, this is gonna be hard. Top 3 Stemily moments.

3. The interview at SDCC 2015 (I think) when they talked about wte towels and making up on the wet bed, 

2. SDCC a few years ago when they were in the cart together and they shared a cup of water. Look at the way they’re looking at each other when she takes the cup and drinks from it. His smile in that 2nd one… something was definitely happening back then. 

1. My absolute favourite is Paley Fest. Everything that happened there. The jelly bean, the panel, put a ring on it, all the teasing and touching EVERYTHING.

“I have this new group of people that I consider to be like my fans and sort of my family..who kinda get all this stuff about me that–for a while, you know, some people were like,‘that’s weird that you do that’ or 'you’re kinda quirky’.. 'you’re kinda short’..'you’re kinda this, you’re kinda that.’ That stuff starts to mess with you as an actor–And suddenly to have that sort of validation…  People don’t like to hear the word,'validation’ but it’s nice to have people be like,'we’re cool with that, actually. And we like it. And we believe it,so we’re gonna go on the ride.’ Um…so, I’m touched.”- Nicole Beharie
