DATE: August 3
PROMPT: I'm not actually competing in the Watson's Woes Prompt Fic Challenge, although I've had great fun playing. Therefore, I feel perfectly justified in utilising some of the August Amnesty Prompts to continue a multi-part story that I started during the July Prompts. Here are the ones I've adapted for use in this fic (and that makes all ten :-D ).
1. Begin your prompt fill with one of the following:
Icy pavements and oblivious pedestrians were not ideal conditions for active pursuit of a criminal.
Mr. Mycroft Holmes was not appreciative of being roused from his slumber a full three and one-half minutes prior to his customary seven o'clock a.m.
"While I appreciate your defending my honor, to do so against three gentlemen twice your size errs on the side of foolhardiness."

3. Pivotal plot point, aka The Road Less Traveled. Take a scene, either from a known canon or one of your own stories, and re-write that scene into an AU, with one or more characters making a radical change from their previous behavior. Show how one decision can swing the pendulum completely the opposite direction.
7. Playing in another sandbox. We all have those crucial stories we've always loved and which shaped our perceptions of characters, those ones we read over and over and love just as much the hundredth time through as we did the first time. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and now's your chance to flatter someone. Choose a fanwork (anything from published pastiche to something right here on LJ or ff.net) and write a scene inspired by it, missing from it, or in that universe. It's fanfic of a fanfic, in other words. (Huge thanks to methylviolet10b for the loan of Tecks and his menagerie. And if you haven't read the marvellous "How Much For That Kitten?" by methylviolet10b, all I can say is, 'What the hell are you waiting for?!')
8. Natural disaster and its consequences. Whether that's flood, hurricane, forest fire, earthquake (San Fran, 1906, anyone?), volcano, or whatever - use a natural disaster in some way.
10. Alpha/Omega - write a fic in which there is a beginning of something, and an end of something.

Surprises (BBC-verse)

Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Blood, schmoop, and magical realism

Author's Notes: Sequel to Storm Warning and Kindness. Unbeta'd.

PROMPT: I'm not actually competing in the Watson's Woes Prompt Fic Challenge, although I've had great fun playing.

Here are the ones I've adapted for use in this fic.
2. Railway, white, snake, jump, sandwich. Use all five words in your fic.
4. Epistolary fic, post-it note style. Write an epistolary fic, but each portion of the fic can only be a line or two long; the amount of words one could fit on a post-it note. Whether you want to use text messaging, scraps of paper, table napkins, actual post-its, or whatever, the bits can only be a sentence or two at a time. If you want to do an art post, with actual sticky notes, then by all means go for it!
5. Actions speak louder than words; ergo, breaking someone's nose is a much more effective means of communicating than verbal riposte. Use that however it inspires you.
6. Gratuitous and shameless H/C/Schmoop. Cosy firelight, fuzzy slippers, hot tea, fleecy blankets, small gestures, kittens and unicorns, whatever brings out the schmooper in you.
9. Rhyme. Crackfic or not, true poetry or not, your entire fic must in some way rhyme. You may waive the 100-word minimum for this prompt.

Kindness (BBC-verse)

Word count: 2,997
Author's Notes: This is a sequel to my earlier challenge prompt fic, Storm Warning. This started as a fluffy little fic and grew into this nearly 3k story. Go figure. I went a bit loosey-goosey with my interp of the prompt (as if that's anything new).

Disclaimer: Still not mine.
Date: July 29
Prompt: Illness, in a location where little to no help is forthcoming.

PROMPT: Pick one of the four seasons and write about a storm during that season. Spring shower, summer hurricane, autumn wind, winter blizzard, or whatever strikes your fancy. Must be Watson-centric H/C or angst; what form that takes is up to you.
