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!)

I'm claiming number 2 and number 8!

As you can see, people can claim their own prompts. Remember, also, that a claimed request is still open for claiming by any number of other people. (Hint, hint!)

Re: Claiming.
*shakes fist* Noo! You got to No. 2 first! ^_^

Can't wait to see it. :D

...shutting up now.

Re: Claiming.
Ahaha! You can still claim number 2! You know, if you want to. You know you do. *waggles eyebrows*
Feb. 19th, 2009 09:33 pm (UTC)
Re: Claiming.
Can I claim 1, 2 and 8?
*is busy being new and confused and easily disracted by shiny things - ooh, sword!*

Re: Claiming.
Sorry, that wasn't clear. Might I also claim No. 2? It's just such a snuggly, awesome prompt. ^_^
Feb. 20th, 2009 02:46 am (UTC)
Re: Claiming.
Yes, yes, you certainly may claim 1, 2 and 8! WHEE, three claims at once! I'm so lucky I'm seeing stars! <3

Re: Claiming.
*grin* Sorry, was a bit confused there. I'd be DELIGHTED to claim 1,2 and 8, but, um, I think you meant the comment above mine? ^_^

my ficlist is so long, while I'd love to claim EVERY PROMPT HERE, I think I might collapse under the strain. :D Thanks for setting this up, btw! XD

Re: Claiming.
I really want to claim 2, too.

Or is three people, 1 prompt, too much? D:

Re: Claiming.
Nope, I don't think it's too much! We've all got different creative styles, and even if the core plot-bunny is the same, we're bound to write/illustrate/vid it very differently. Like... For example, there are lots of stories about Arthur finding out about Merlin's magic, but people still write them anyway! Because it can always be done in a new and interesting way. :)

So, please, go ahead and claim #2. Thank you so much!

Re: Claiming.
Then I shall formally claim #2! Thanks. (:

Re: Claiming.
Okay, so I know this is to all intents and purposes an abandoned community, but if you ever read this, I am formally snagging your fourth prompt to finish off a trilogy I'm doing.

Thanks! ^_^
