So, as an example prompt response synopsis that Rhombus and I thought up a while back:

"Ducky's mother is surprised when none other than Red Claw shows up in the Valley asking for her help in the art of courtship."
LOL

What next? Original Sharptooth asks Ruby for help? XD
 

it sounds like it's a promt only for not-serious pun stories. XD


ok ok, I stop.

I just can't imagine any idea for serious story with this prompt.
Only something for short pun story from my third LBT universe... (example:http://z7.invisionfree.com/thegangoffive/i...ost&p=40005202 till the end of page)://http://z7.invisionfree.com/thegango...he end of page)://http://z7.invisionfree.com/thegango...he end of page)
Can't imagine a serious response, you say?

Challenge accepted.  :smile

Well, I'm definitely out for this month. The prompt is too silly to come up with a story I can be somewhat satisfied with. Not a fan of stories that don't make sense  :neutral
Note to self: finally create that signature lazy bum! :P

I think I'll wait for next month's prompt; this prompt seems to be a bit too vague for me to write a story and have it make sense.

I understand. My prompt this month was, frankly, poorly constructed and I apologize for forcing it on everyone here. Clearly I should have taken a more direct approach, or perhaps even released it anonymously. I'm sorry I did not think my prompt through, and I absolutely understand the low turnout rate we will have this month. I'm sure Rhombus and I will discuss this, and I hope we can come up with a solution that will better serve you in the future.

I myself am also bowing out. Working two prompts and a mainline story this month is too much for me. My intent was to do a story in which Tria, known to the Valley as somewhat of a love expert, is asked by Topps to help him prepare for taking a new mate years after his mate's death. What would follow would be the two of them working through Topps's past, helping to build his confidence back up, and learning a little more about both Threehorns in the process, until finally Topps comes to realize that, in fact, Tria is the right mate for him. Still, it's pretty silly. It would have been just as much of a joke fic as any other, looking back. I don't think I could ever have made a serious effort out of this topic.

Have a nice day, everyone.

Okay, everyone, turnout was somewhat lower this month, but I am still pleased with the continued participation.  :) I hope that this participation continues into this month.

Now we have 2 things on the agenda.

First, there will be no voting in the the voting topic for the best prompt response this time.  This is because there are only two qualified entries (my entry is not in the running) and each person cannot vote for themselves... so that leaves a 1 to 1 tie.  As a consequence Fyn and I will take a look at the entries for this month and attempt a tie-breaker.

Second, there is a new prompt for a new month.  The same rules will apply for this month as in last month, if you wish to participate then you will need to complete a story or poem that fulfills the prompt and then you will need to PM me with the title, description, gang of five link, and fanfiction.net link of the story.  This month’s prompt is:

March 2017

Proposed by Rhombus

"Make a story that is from the perspective of an omnivore or sharptooth other than Chomper or Ruby.  They may be villains, allies, neutral observers, or anything you like, but the perspective of the narrative must be from the viewpoint of the sharptooth or omnivore."

There are many possibilities here to consider perspectives that haven't seen much use in fanfictions, such as unnamed sharpteeth in the series, or it could also be from the standpoint of Ruby's family, Chomper's parents, Redclaw, Screech, Thud, Ozzy, Strut, etc.  There are many possibilities.  In any case, have fun, everyone!


Go ahead and check out my fanfictions, The Seven Hunters, Songs of the Hunters, and Mender's Tale
Mender's Tale.

It's a shame that the previous prompt didn't draw in as many people as the first one but it was a bit difficult to execute. However, the new prompt seems quite nice and I'm sure there are some very interesting stories than can be made of it. :) I, for one, will continue to participate.

Seems like another prompt I don't like. Unless I get a sudden inspiration I probably won't participate again.

Forgot to ask another question:

"...story that is from the perspective..." means STRONG first-person perspective? Without any third-person viewpoint/perspective, like in Choices fanstory? Or there can be third-person description of protagonist's movement and actions?
thx

I'm going to go ahead and tentatively answer that, as Rhombus won't be around today. My response will be from the third-person perspective, so I think you're fine to go ahead with whatever perspective you choose. Remember that perspective and point-of-view are two very different things. However, I'll be sure to ask him when he gets back. Stand by in case my answer changes.

Certainly! Point of view is the lens through which the reader views the story, so technically this is where first person/second person/third person comes from, whereas Perspective is simply how the character experiences that story, or more accurately, who the readers are viewing that story through, so a story with a first person point of view can still be written from any perspective. You could have a Sharptooth's perspective, or a Leaf Eater's perspective- heck, you could probably do a tree's perspective, all in a first, second, or third person point of view.

Hopefully that wasn't too confusing. Both terms are often used interchangeably, but they tend to mean different things in literary circles.

Just like with the prompt from February, I have no story idea in mind for this month's prompt. Maybe I'll take part in writing a story for the fanfiction prompt for the month of April.

Ok, I decided to myself: I will finish the story anyway, even if it doesn't fit with time borders.
I believe main purpose of this promt - giving motivation and courage to write your own work. Even if it doesn't end here, in posted list of works at the end of month. Right? :D
