Technically, this post probably doesn't even belong here, into this journal. But, at the same time, it's writing related and goddammit, it's my journal so if I don't have the authority to bend my own rules then who the hell does? Right.

I'm just thinking, once again.

There are so many challenge and prompt communities (50scenes and alike) but I haven't been able to find the kind I'm looking for (have I been looking in the wrong places???), the kind that would satisfy my current need and lets not dwell on how dirty that sounded (I'm aware).

Anyway, I'd want one with the basic idea of it being

a) for fanon couples only (this is the most important thing, really)
b) members being able to post prompts (anyone and everyone could answer the prompt/s by either commenting the post or leaving a link to the actual fic, no length limits or anything)
c) the prompts would be in the forms of sentences/song lyrics

I mainly got this idea from khushiyan's old prompts (here) and so the prompts would look like

X-MEN, Pyro/Rogue, Aandhi ho ya toofan ho, meri mann mein rahey tu sada/If you're a monsoon or a storm, in my heart you remain safe

I guess I'm just wondering if there already are communities like that, I just failed to find them and also, if there aren't, would anyone be interested in joining one if I get around to making it (I think I've gotten a little smarter and I wouldn't make it as high-maintenance as our old communities have been so it would more like run on its own without the need for constant administrating)?

So, any comments on the idea? I can't be the only one who's been thinking of this :D

... well, this is what happens when I get ideas and vaarna doesn't stake them: fanoncouples :DDDD

Help me spread the word and I will love you forever, people! ;D

I don't think they exist as communities per se, but I've seen lots of (anon) writing memes that go with the flow you described ->

Someone usually hosts it in their own journal, people leave comments with prompts and pairing and around >30% of the prompts get filled by writers through comments (mostly because some people post full pages of prompts and don't fill any themselves). There are rules like a set time you can post prompts and fill them. The memes are usually tied to fandom and the prompts go with the pairings.

More recently did those with non-canon pairing, sanctuary kink, dragon age kink... actually quite a few of my recent standalones have spawned from these.

Ah, I see. But that's just it, really. I don't want it to be within someone else's journal... going through the prompts and finding the fics and whatnot, I find it difficult when there's a shit loads of comments to go through :/ Also, there's usually the rule that ties only one fic per prompt - I dun like that one :( Or the fact they need to fit a comment -- that (always) makes them short, eh.

Also, I think I could get my standalone writing going like this, too.

So, what you think about making that comm, then? (I mean, with those memes going around, you think it'd be a good idea or?)

Sure, go ahead and make a comm. I'd participate in the challenges. :P
