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!)

Re: More requests!

I have signed up for waaaay too many for my sanity. But if no one else who can actually write signs up for the Hunith/Uther, may I? Can I even ask to be pencilled in against a prompt, or is that against the rules?

Re: More requests!
OH MY GOSH YOU TOOK MY HUNITH/UTHER PROMPT! YOU ARE MADE OF WIN! Seriously, I wasn't sure anyone would take up that prompt, especially since I was so anal and provided so much detail for it, haha. Not to mention - Hunith/Uther. Rarest of the rare ships, huh? I think that when you write this story, it might just be the FIRST OF ITS KIND IN THE ENTIRE KINGDOM FANDOM. <3

Unfortunately I cannot pencil you in next to the prompt (everyone's encouraged to claim as many prompts as possible, including pre-chosen ones). But, like I said, it's highly unlikely that you'll have 15 different people claiming a Hunith/Uther prompt, lol. :D

Thank you so much! *beams*

Re: More requests!
*sigh* OH WELL. If you can't pencil me in, it'll just have to go down for definite in pen. :D

IT'S JUST SUCH AN AWESOME IDEA. Seriously, I LOVE it - even if it's not luuuuuuurve, just respect and friendship - more likely, maybe? Uther seems like a One True Love kind of guy, which is simultaneously wrong, and horrifically cute; like a kind of mutant puppy ^_^ - but his gradual realisation (re-realisation, I think), that these are PEOPLE he's ruling/dealing with. A reawakening of parts of that died with Igraine.

*forces self to stop*

But JUST THINK OF IT! This could be what sparks Camelot as we know it, notions which started with Uther - a la myth - and which ARthur fostered and made standard policy! *flails*

Um, yes. Stopping now. :D
