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!)

DO IT.
I have signed up for like every challange this fandom has thrown up so I know about not needing to claim more prompts for things. It doesn't ever stop me.

To cap; please you be writing.

FIRSTLY, YOU ICON IS MADE OF SO. MUCH. WIN. *adores* ^_^

Secondly, OMG ME TOO. O.o :S Big Bang, reel_merlin (*bites fingernails*), the Bradley Mancrush challenge - for the name; what do you mean, 'shallow'? :D - and this one. FAIL.

And yet, strangely win. :D


I WRITE.

I'm doing the Big Bang and the Bradley Mancrush challenge too, and this one obviously. And Round Merlin and the Merlin/Arthur FQF.

HAHAH, your reason for doing BJMC (as I refer to it in my mind and then giggle at the beginning two initials as I am mentally ten years old) is hilarious.
I'm doing it because Bradley James wants to sleep with Santiago and Colin. Possibly at the same time.

I agree.
Complete win. (and a little bit of fail.)

Oh, yes - round Merlin. :D Forgot that one, because I had to write first - argh argh argh - and it's all done now. ^_^

"I'm doing it because Bradley James wants to sleep with Santiago and Colin. Possibly at the same time." - Well, yes. *grin* It's because of his cheekbone fetish. Also, there's that lingering hero-worship of Anthony Head... o.O

And Colin would so totally get hurt and throw himself into a relationship with someone else, just because they're not Bradley. ^_^

*restrains self*

Cheek bone fetish?
Yes!
Bradley has inner turmoil over whose are prettier, Colin's or Santiago's.
This fetish is something Bradley and I share.

"And Colin would so totally get hurt and throw himself into a relationship with someone else, just because they're not Bradley"

Yes and Bradley is crushed but he doesn't let on and just spends increasingly weird amounts of time hanging around Anthony Head and every time Colin comes near Bradley acts a little to friendly with ASH. This terrifies everyone, no one more than Anthony, himself.

Oh, god. I did not just write that.

*laughs out loud* - the Merlin fandom. It's all about breaking through the pain barrier. :DDD

THAT FIC IS JUST BEGGING TO BE WRITTEN. :D I'll write the Colin side if you write the Bradley side? XD

Also. Your icon. I ADORE IT.

"THAT FIC IS JUST BEGGING TO BE WRITTEN."

I shouldn't, I really shouldn't.

BUT I COMPLETELY AM! Hahaha, this is going to be epic. Also I find it ironic that in our mutual admittance that we should stop claiming prompts and doing challenges we plan to write fic.
Who needs free time when you have Bradley/Colin RPS?

I adore my icon too. It makes me smile.
