Tired of the same old prompt lists for fanfiction or fanart? Well here's a new set, all shiny and waiting for your attention. Why, you ask, choose 64 prompts, instead of 25 or 100? Because 64 is 8 squared, and everyone knows that 8 is a fabulous number (as is 64).

Les Rules

Pick a fandom or two or ten. Pick a pairing or five or sixty-four. Or just pick one single character and run with it-- there's no rigid rules here. Use the prompt list to inspire fanfiction or fanart, and when you complete an individual theme, post it! There are no claims; claims would mean only one person per fandom and my god how boring would that be?

Canon characters or places, original characters, OCs with fandom characters, crossovers between two fandoms, AU stories and songfics are all acceptable. Same with fanart. Fanfiction can range from drabbles to whole fics to single sentences. Themes may be posted in any order; they are not chronological.

Feel free to mix and match fandoms while working through the list-- you can come up with 64 drabbles about Doctor Who or you can have one theme for DW, the next theme for Naruto, and the theme after that for The Matrix.

Icons aren't allowed, but you can mix and match media, doing fanart, fanfiction, or both. Manips count as fanart in my book. Though if you wanted to use the list for icons or other stuff and then post it at your own journal and say you got the list from 64damn_prompts, then by all means do so! :g: The list itself is free once it's out there; I just want the comm postings to be fanfiction or fanart.

There is no time limit to this challenge but the time limit your own terrible horrible no-good superego elects to set upon your shoulders.

How you interpret the theme is up to you! It can be an idea, a title, a spoken piece of dialogue, and action, a motif... whatever it inspires in you.

Please tag your entry with the theme[s] and fandom[s].

Only fic/art may be posted to the community. (Advertisements for other communities will be deleted.) You may use fake cuts, but you must have the correct subject and header information as well as a link to its actual location.


Subject line:
Title (fandom, pairing, challenge #)

Entry Header:

LJ-cut: Anything longer than a paragraph and ALL artwork must be put behind an LJ-cut, but for artwork you may post a small visual teaser (approximately 200x200 max) outside the LJ-cut.

Ratings: All ratings are welcome, but anything of an R or higher rating must be clearly marked as such in front of the LJ-cut.

Plagiarism: will get your post deleted and you banned from the comm.

Feedback: is highly encouraged!
