Fic or Die: Prompts

As you may have noticed, it is time to Fic or Die.

This is the place to share prompts and hopefully inspire your fellow participants! Prompting is open to anyone, even if you won't actually be writing for Fic or Die.

It's very simple:

1. Please post your prompts in the comments to this post.

2. Ideally, prompts should be short and sweet, combining a spark of an idea with the maximum amount of creativity - please try to avoid excessive detail. Example:

Good prompt:
Derek (Teen Wolf) and Oz (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), dungeon.

Bad prompt:
Derek from Teen Wolf and Oz from Buffy the Vampire Slayer are trapped in a dungeon together when the full moon hits and they are both in heat and have to work out alpha dynamics and they fight and bite each other a lot and it turns out Oz is MORE alpha than Derek and he knots him and totally makes him his bitch and Derek actually totally gets off on it but he's conflicted about what that means about his identity as an alpha and also this should result in MPREG.

[like, if you have thought about this premise in this much detail, it should not be a prompt, because you should write it yourself, ok?]

3. Since this is a multi-fandom challenge, please try to stick with prompts for fandoms that your fellow participants may be familiar with.
I mean, you are totally free to post a prompt for anything, but be aware that if no one but you has watched That Obscure Show, your prompt isn't very likely to be picked up *sighs and hides all Robin of Sherwood prompts*

4. If you are filling one of these prompts, please indicate this in the Author's Notes when you post your fic.
Something short and sweet like "Filling [info]aldiara's "Derek/Oz" prompt" will do nicely. Multiple authors may fill the same prompt - there are no limits on various takes on a prompt.

5. If an author picks up a prompt you have provided, please take the time to read their fic and comment on it.

6. There is no limit on how many prompts you can post.
...she says, after posting approximately 17.

IDK if anyone here is as into ASOIAF as I am or would be interested in the more obscure characters/events, but I do have some prompts. I guess if no one want to tackle them I'd have to figure out a way to do them myself:

-Brynden Rivers (a.k.a Bloodraven a.k.a The three-eyed crow): anything about his background from any stage of his life. Magical or non-magical. Extra brownie points if it's got messy feelings re his family.

-A star-crossed lovers story featuring Blackwoods vs Brackens.

-Any Targaryen story pre-Robert's rebellion

-Anything about Maekar or his kids. The messier the better.

-Gerris Drinkwater/Quentyn Martell.

-Something about the Defiance of Duskendale, preferably Tywin's POV

-Hot Pie saves the day. Preferably humor, but other contexts welcome.

-Songfic from any Bastille song about anything in the ASOIAF verse.

-Anything about a book char meeting their show counterpart and being grossed out.

Re: ASOIAF prompts
