Comm/Site: Which Witch Ficathon
I'm so excited that so many of you want to continue this ficathon. Let's keep the Willow-love alive!

You can view the dates and rules here. The sign-up period is shorter so that you can have 2 months to write (and have them done in time to be eligible for the Willowy Goodness Awards in January).

Below the cut you will find this year's prompts to choose from. There are four prompts per (television) season, four post-season prompts, plus four prompts for possible crossovers. If some prompts look familiar, it's because we kept ones that weren't written last year.

Look over the choices and then reply in the comments with your three favorite prompts - in preference order, including pairings (if applicable). Keep in mind that more than one person can use any prompt, as long as they're writing different pairings. Don't forget to include your name and email address, since I'll be emailing out the assignments.

I'll go through the requests, and then by November 4th I'll send out your assignments. Simple enough, right? If you have any questions, just ask!

    Prompts & Pairings:
    1) Willow has a memory of Joyce being more of a mother to her than her own, after Joyce's death. (Gen - possible Willow/Tara in canon context.)
    2) What if Buffy turns to Willow instead of Spike when she's pulled out of heaven? (Probably Gen) Note: I doubt that I would write this as a case of Buffy 'turning to' Willow. I see the implied passivity as unlikely.
    3) Explore Willow's fear that was revealed in Fear Itself. (Gen - possible Willow/Oz in canon context.)
