It's Friday so I'm throwing out a new weekly prompt.  Aptly, I think.
RACE AGAINST TIME

[personal profile] il_mio_capitano
I'm slipping the prompts to Fridays until June when we take our summer break. Sign-ups are looking healthy and there are still available dates over at [community profile] summer_of_giles by the by! 

This week's prompt: Talking Shop

[personal profile] il_mio_capitano
New prompt for this week: Enquire Within. Do with it as you wish...

Quick reminder, this is an 'anything is welcome' sort of place. You are free to use any prompts from whenever or to post something completely fresh. You can post here or merely post a link to your own dw, ff, LJ, ao3, Wordpress, blog, wherever. There really isn't a restriction on wordcount. I'm happy to accept any length if the muse posessed you. The only rule is to have Giles in the mix, but he doesn't have to be the Big Damn Hero or main focus. It's all about writing and sharing here.

New prompt for this week. We shall continue through to the end of May and take our annual break for June and July. (I won't be offended if any of these prompts are used for [community profile] summer_of_giles  instead of course.)

This week's prompt is: Something to sign for

 New week, new challenge. Ficlets or drabbles please prompted by:

UNDERCOVER

Take that any way you will. :)

New week, new weekly prompt. Fics or drabbles of any length welcome taking inspiration from the prompt of:

GETTING ON

Giles in the mix somehow, though he can be pretty slight. All previous prompts remain 'open' - we are not a strict comm - it's all about writing and encouraging everyone to experiment.

As promised, there will be weekly prompts from now until end of May. Fics or drabbles of any length welcome taking inspiration from the prompt of:

MARATHON

Giles is the mix somehow, though he can be pretty slight. All previous prompts remain 'open' by the way. This is a comm that welcomes writing and encourages everyone to experiment.

My thanks to everyone who played and had some fun last month with last line first line challenge. I even managed a few myself - wonders will never cease. From today until the end of May, we are returning to weekly prompts at which point the mighty [livejournal.com profile] summer_of_giles takes over for two months.

Ficlets or drabbles or any length welcome. This week's prompt is: FOOL



Archive of Our Own Collection

We now have an AO3 Collection if you are posting there and wish to link to us. Look for Giles_Shorts.

I'm a little late, so forgive me. Shakespeare is our monthly theme so anything plot stealing from the bard is welcome. Drables, ficlets, poems, stage directions....anything is welcome. The only rule is Giles must be in the mix, but it can be ever so slight. Below are some quotes that might inspire thinky thoughts.

For some must watch, while some must sleep

You take my life when you take the means whereby I live

'Tis an ill cook that cannot lick his own fingers

Have at it!

Continuing with our Shakepeare theme, drabbles and ficlets are welcome on all things Bard. Some extra lines as prompts:
A pound of flesh.

Exit, pursued by a bear.

You have witchcraft in your lips.

Or, as always, you are free to follow your own muse. Lay on, Macduff!

I've been away far too long due to bereavement and other crap, but let's see if we can start 2017 a little better.

From now to the end of February, I declare our theme for ideas to be:

Brush Up Your Shakespeare

Drabbles, ficlets (or sonnets if you really want to), the idea is to draw inspriation from all things vaguely to do with Shakespeare. Each week I will throw out some prompt ideas but you are free to use or ignore as you see fit. Week 1:--->

This above all: to thine own self be true.

It is a wise father than knows his own child.

Beware the green-eyed monster.

Additional prompts:

A pound of flesh

Exit, pursued by a bear

You have witchcraft in your lips

Third set of prompts:

For some must watch, while some must sleep

You take my life when you take the means whereby I live

'Tis an ill cook that cannot lick his own fingers

Probably bonus points for writing an actual monster with green eyes or for anything that involves Giles in tights.

For our final prompt of the month I'm in the mood for some travelling. Therefore pick from:

Sunnydale bus depot
Sunnydale train station
Sunnydale airport
Sunnydale docks

For a one horse town, Sunnydale appears to be a major transportational hub for Sourthern California.

This week's prompty location is:

A Magick Shop.

Doesn't have to be the Box, could be anytime, any place.

[personal profile] il_mio_capitano
New week, new prompt on our theme of locations. Not that any prompts technically ever close, if you fall for a previous suggestion, do it!

New prompt is Giles' bathroom.

Which could be anytime, anywhere. As always, any length, any ship, any rating, all are welcome.

New month, new theme. For April our theme will be all about Locations.

I will suggest a location once a week (or maybe twice if the fancy takes me), and the challenge is to write a small ficlet or drabble based there. Bonus points for a continuous story I guess, but as usual, it's Open House here. Pick any prompt in any order, combine them, skip them, whatever them, we are a safe haven comm that lives for having fun and experimenting with writing. Anything goes so long as Giles is in the mix (even if we have to squint a bit).

Opening location of the month: The Sunnydale Museum

This month we invite works taking their inspiration from David Bowie song titles or lyrics. For example:

Young (undead) Americans
Ethan, I'm Only Dancing
Ziggy Stardust and the Snot Monsters from Mars....

I sense some strong possibilities are out there. Any length, any ship or not, any rating, just the usual stipulation that Giles is in the mix somewhere. Bonus points for use of the phrase 'serious moonlight'.

Last Kickstarter prompt for January:

Giles looked dumbly at the smashed laptop at this feet. XXX was going to kill him.
