Story Prompts & Sign Ups
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!
