Thirteen Days of Fic
I’m sorry, I know it’s been ages, but there’s been a lot going on for me personally in the past year. I might finally be getting a handle on everything, though we’ll have to wait and see. In the meantime, I watched Over the Garden Wall last weekend - because of course I did, I mean, I’ll probably watch it at least five more times before the month is out - and I was so inspired. Like… the memory of Wirt and Greg and everything about them just came flooding back and so I had to go a reread a bunch of stuff that I’d written to hear their voices again because of how much I missed those nerds.
They’ve been very quiet, very good because they understand that I need to focus on my own novels, but I’ve been thinking (and reading) and I feel like it would be fun to bring them back out for the rest of the month.
For the next thirteen days, I want to write a prompt a day! In the spirit of Halloween, they’re all spooky/autumnal prompts, and I’m open to doing anything. Over the Garden Wall, my novels, MBF (as best as I can on my own, lol), or other OtGW crossovers/AUs with Gravity Falls (I don’t have the confidence to really crossover with any other show). The first thirteen prompts I get from you lovely people will be the ones I fill. If I don’t get any, which I wouldn’t be surprised due to being inactive for so long, then I have a list that I’ll go off of on my own and do whatever prompts pop into my head! Either way, it should be fun!
After Halloween though, I’ll be diving into NaNoWriMo, so unfortunately I won’t be filling any other prompts past these thirteen. At least until Christmas, possibly. Anyway, this was just something I wanted to do since I feel like I have the time and the inspiration for the next thirteen days.
I’m going to post the list again on it’s own, so feel free to use it to inspire your own spooky tales for the remainder of October and beyond.
1. Spider web
11. Old tree
20. Haunted House
22. Hay ride
30. Corn maze
If you want to request something specific, please include:
- The prompt
- Which series - i.e. OtGW, Two Roads ‘verse, MBF ‘verse, original novel (They don’t have names yet, so let’s call them Magic Married, Ghost Book #1, Ghost Book #2, or Ghost Book #3 - what are they about? Well… it’s all a mystery!), OtGW/GF “insert AU or requirements here”
- Any pairing that you’d like to see! With original novel that would most likely be Kepp/Flynt (Magic Married - can be anywhere from age 13 - 99, let’s face it, they’re probably going to live forever), Ethan/Specter (Ghost Book #1 - Ethan and Specter are 12), Tabitha/Amara (Ghost Book #2 - Tabitha and Amara are late twenties/early thirties?), or Ethan/Rob (Ghost Book #3 - mid to late twenties). I don’t know if Rob is sticking as his name, but right now the universe is telling me that it’s Rob. Those are just some guidelines though. I have plenty of other characters who aren’t in relationships at the moment that could make an appearance. You can ask for original novel and not specify any pairing just to see what comes up.
They might be spooky, or I might go in a completely different direction with the prompt. Who knows! If you don’t want to be specific, and just want to pick a prompt, that’s fine too! Just send me the prompt and if you’re one of the first thirteen, I’ll take it as an anything goes :)
