This is the promised prompt post for our Venomtime's Day fest.
You can find the fest's rules here
, and the AO3 collection here
. The deadline to submit a fest entry is midnight 13 February GMT.
While there's no official sign-up for this fest (just post to the collection when you're ready), if you're like me, sometimes it's useful to have some prompts for inspiration. This is the place to post prompts for the fest.The rules
You can post two kinds of prompts here:
- A link that goes to a letter on your own journal/tumblr or whatever, which explains something you want in a bit of detail. This could be particularly useful for things like a songvid, where you might have a favourite song that you would like vidded to the Venom movie and/or the comics and you want to explain why. Another example might be if you are looking for a collaborator for a project for Valentine's Day -- say you are looking for a fic of the right length to podfic. The point of the letter is that it gives you a bit of room to explain what you're looking for and why, and gives you the option of screening comments if you're looking for a secret collaborator for your project and that kind of thing.
- A short prompt here in the comments on this entry with one request in it. This is for if you have a particular craving for a story, piece of art, themed rec list, meta topic, etc, and you can easily get it down in a single comment.
You can leave up to three prompts or one link to a letter before posting anything to the fest collection. To be able to post further prompts, you need to post at least one gift to the collection -- that gift doesn't need to fill a prompt or letter on this post. Once you've posted a gift, you can post up to three more prompts. I doubt anyone would want to post more than one letter, but you can once you submit a gift to the collection if you really want to.
You can post prompts or letter any time from now until 13 February.
The focus should be on Eddie Brock, Venom, and any combination of Eddie and Venom, but it's also okay to ask for them in combination with other characters from the comics or movie.
For each prompt, post a new comment in a new thread (that is, not as a response to any other comment). Give a summary of the prompt in the header so it's easy to find, and the details in the comment itself.
Here's the format to use for prompts:
Prompt # - Character or Relationship, Type of Fanwork, Requested Rating
Subject line: Prompt 3 - Eddie & Venom, Art, SFW
Body of comment: I really, really want Eddie & Venom on a spaceship! Pretty please with tentacles on top!
Here's the header format to use for a letter link:
Letter - Character or Relationship, Type of Fanwork, Requested Rating
Subject line: Letter - Trans Eddie, Podficcer looking for writer by 7 Feb, VNSFW
Body of comment: the link to your letter
Go forth and fest!!!
