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!)

1) Avalon is an important part in the legend, and it's already shown up in canon. What part is it going to play in the future? Presumably it's going to have a role in Arthur's death/sending off... but the years in between? It's accessible through a magical lake within walking distance of the castle, honestly. There have got to be SOME misadventures that go on.

(IDK if Avalon is at the bottom of the lake like they said or if it's supposed to be the Isle of the Blessed. Maybe it's both? Maybe it's a separate place entirely? Play with it, that's what the prompt is for. :D)

1.5) As an auxiliary to that, or maybe as a separate prompt entirely: Aulfric said that the sidhe were going to take a life during the ritual, and wouldn't discriminate between Arthur's or Sophia's. Arthur obviously didn't die, so they must have taken Sophia. Even though, hang on, MERLIN was the one who killed her. That must have caused some problems! Convoluted explanations aside, what I'm getting at is this: what if, because of this, Sophia became the Lady of the Lake? Immortal, but tied to the lake where she was killed and not quite allowed to live in Avalon and join up with the rest of the sidhe because she didn't sacrifice her prince properly. And hmm, she now happens to be in possession of a certain magical sword that Arthur might find useful later, but she also has quite the grudge against Merlin!

2) The origins of the Round Table! Where/when did Arthur get the idea, how did he get the table, who what did he proceed to do on with the table, etc. :D

I've been meaning to explore the Round Table more for a while - totally claiming #2. 8D

NEVER MIND, I totally missed the first claimer. My bad. :D

Oh, there can be multiple claimants! (See rules above; people can make or claim as many requests as they like.) Please go ahead and claim this if you still want to!
Mar. 2nd, 2009 03:36 am (UTC)
I... completely missed that in the rules. Sweet. In that case never mind, I shall claim away!

Thanks for letting me know about my mistake. :D

Oh, sweetie, it ain't a mistake! I'm just thrilled to have another participant! :D
