Requests and Claims

Righty-o, then! Here's the ubiquitous claims post. Feel free to offer your most cherished fantasies for Merlin's future! Where would you like the show to go? What would you like to see happen next? And what do you think might happen in the distant future, with all your favorite characters, long after the five seasons of the show are done? Anything and everything you can possibly imagine for the show's future has a definite chance of being written, drawn or vidded here. Get loose! Get freaky. Uh huh. Uh huh.

The following rules might help you better adhere to the threadbare requirements of this humble fest. Please follow these rules, and spare me the trouble of spitting fire futilely in my underground cave while you hand my special magic sword over to someone else! Even if it is Uther Pendragon. Yes, that's right. I'm looking at you, young warlocks. Have a care.

1. All requests must be made in the form of comments to this post.

2. All requests must be set in the future. (After the end of Season One.)

3. No request may deviate in any way from known canonical facts.

4. Anyone can make a request; only a member may claim it.

5. Requests must be claimed by replying to the comments in which the requests were made.

6. You may make or claim as many requests as you like.

7. Any number of people may claim a request, so long as they each do something unique with it.

8. Your requests may be as long or as short as you like. Simple prompts are okay, too.

9. Yes, you can claim your own prompt. Just make sure to leave a comment saying that you are.

10. If there is a particular pairing or situation that you definitely do not want to see, say so.

Go ahead and make your requests, everyone! Make as many as you'd like; claim as many as you'd like. You have to be a member to claim a request, though. Keep that in mind.

Once you've claimed a prompt, go here to read the submission rules. Do not post to this community if you a) haven't read the submission rules, or b) aren't sure that you'll be able to obey them. But if you are ready to play by the rules, then you're more than welcome to join our happy little fest! Claim a prompt and get going! The deadline is the 1st of September 2009, so there's plenty of time for you to churn out an entry or two.

Contact me if you have any questions. My email address is saucery AT yahoo DOT com. I'm also leaving a few requests below, just to show the rest of you how it's done. (Ha. Well, the real motive is to get someone to claim my prompts. Hee!)

Excellent prompts! I can't WAIT to see #2 get written!

But may I ask you to remove 1.5? It requires a change to canonical facts (Sophia being the Lady of the Lake), and that's unfortunately the one thing people can't request. :( Gah, I'm so sorry! It's a really cool plot-bunny, but it's against fest rules, is all - please feel free to make any other requests that don't change canonical facts. (Rules are above, in the body of the post.)

Um, if you like, you can simply post a reply to your comment saying that you've canceled 1.5, or you could delete the comment itself and re-post it without 1.5. Either way is fine. Thanks so much for listening, and for supporting the fest!

Is it a change from the facts? D: I didn't think of it that way. I know the lady of the lake is supposed to be Nimueh in the legend, but I didn't think Nimueh really had anything to do with that particular lake, and it was from specific facts in the episode itself that the prompt is based from.

I'll take it down though, sorry.

OH MY GOD! No, you're right! I mean, it ISN'T a change from canon! :O

Oh gosh, I'm so silly. PLEASE don't take it down. I can't believe I got confused! Lol. Great job I'm doing of modding the fest, huh? :D

Oh good! I don't blame you at all, as I am aware I can be quite inarticulate at times, ahaha. >__>;; I will go ahead and spam you with yet another version of my prompt comment!
