To help with the never-ending stream of ideas, I am posting the character trait boot camp! Blame Gamma for starting the obsession!

Important Stuff:

There are fifty prompts listed, and each one needs to be written in its own story.

Each story can be any length. You could do a 100 word drabble or a never-ending story (well, logically, there'd be an end to it at some point, but meh).

Drabbles and one-shots can be posted as part of a collection if you'd like.

Prompts can be combined with other challenges.

Traits can be used canonically or AU. (e.g. dark! could be written about Bellatrix canonically, or you could write an AU about Harry becoming dark!)

Any pairing is allowed: het, slash, femslash, incest, crack, etc. It's all welcome!

Any rating is allowed.

No due date!

Other training facilities in the area....

Hey...I love the prompts!

I would like to enter...but its going to take me a while to put up stories...btw...can pre-written stories put up?

8/11/2012 #24

It's fine if it takes a while to put up stories. Some of the people who have been signing up on these are up to needing to write a thousand stories, so believe me, we know we're not going to get them immediately. That's why there's no due date! xD I'm inclined to say no pre-written stories, since the original challenge was made to add fifty pieces and increase counts on favorite pairings, etc. But if I talk to anyone else and they think differently, I'll let you know.

8/12/2012 #25

All right, I'm totally in!

8/12/2012 #26

Hmm...thanks! :)

Alright, I'll make a separate story of all the fifty prompts, and maybe even combine it with a few challenges. :)

PS: I have a doubt, hmm...usually, when I enter these sort of challenges, I make a separate fiction so that all the prompts are assorted. But, if I have to a single entry for two boot camps, then can I post the same entry in different stories?

Ehh..I hope that made sense.
