Hiya! Ooh, how fun--another bandwagon for me to jump on! :D
badly_knitted: Ianto Smile[personal profile] badly_knitted on March 11th, 2018 11:27 am (UTC)
Welcome aboard =D

I've been wanting to do something with Reverse Fandom prompts for a long while, so I thought it might be fun to do a whole community using them, but I thought the Song Title prompts would add some variety, and making it monthly would give people plenty of time to play around with each set of prompts before a new one comes along.

Hope you'll have fun here, and please let me know of any singers/bands whose song titles you'd like to dip onto, and any TV shows with a good mix of episode titles. I'm very open to suggestions. I want to start with a Song Titles challenge but I haven't decided on whose songs yet... Might go with M*A*S*H for the first Reverse Fandom one because there are so many episodes with great titles.
cyberiad_queen: ...but it's pretty...[personal profile] cyberiad_queen on March 11th, 2018 07:39 pm (UTC)
It sounds great. :D And that sounds like a good one to start with; it should give everyone a lot to work with!

I'll go hunt around for musicians and shows, and see what I can recommend. :D The music one should be easy enough, but I think it'll be trickier with TV shows, since the title isn't always on-screen. (Don't be surprised if anything I suggest is out-there, lol; that's basically me in a nutshell, anyway, and it's good to be able to throw people a curveball now and then.)

I'll take any ideas. Wiki is good for episode lists etc. so I'll link to the relevant pages for each challenge post.

I'm not fussy about what genre a singer (or a TV show for that matter) is. The idea is to provide lots of variety.

Among other singers, I plan to use Frank Sinatra, the Beatles, Elton John, Jimmy Buffet, Clint Black...
cyberiad_queen: Selfie Time![personal profile] cyberiad_queen on March 11th, 2018 10:01 pm (UTC)
I've just been raiding Wikipedia. I think I've got some ideas that you might be able to use:

Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction; each episode has five titles, so that might be a good variety.

Amazing Stories--The titles look like they're just sitting there asking to be made into prompts.

The Twilight Zone

I kinda considered Friends, but the episodes all start with 'The One Where' or 'The One With', or variations on that, so I didn't think those would be very inspiring.

Oh, that's a good list, there! I was thinking of suggesting the Beatles. ^.^
badly_knitted: Jack - Big Smile[personal profile] badly_knitted on March 11th, 2018 11:31 pm (UTC)
I particularly like the idea of The Twilight Zone, I've always loved that. Outer Limits might work too. I'll browse the other two and see what I think, thanks for the suggestions =)

How about we start with The Beatles songs then? Have that as the first challenge since it's one we both thought of =)

I need to start adding fandom tags too...
cyberiad_queen: Elation[personal profile] cyberiad_queen on March 11th, 2018 11:47 pm (UTC)
Sounds as good a starting point as any! :D

And anytime; I'm glad to help! <3
badly_knitted: Jack - Big Smile[personal profile] badly_knitted on March 12th, 2018 12:51 am (UTC)
You're always a great help =D
cyberiad_queen: Neon[personal profile] cyberiad_queen on March 12th, 2018 01:05 am (UTC)
Well...gosh...thank you; I always try to be. :)

Welcome to the community!

"Babylon 5" had a lot of rather awesome episode titles. Writers could probably also get quite a bit of mileage out of titles from "The X-Files" (especially since many of those are single words).
badly_knitted[personal profile] badly_knitted on March 13th, 2018 01:21 pm (UTC)
Funnily enough, B5 was already on my list - it's one of my all-time favourite shows and I'm currently re-watching it so it's very much on my mind right now.

Excellent idea with the X-Files, that should give everyone something to get their teeth into!

Thanks for the suggestions, and welcome aboard!
Jordanna Morgan: Mayhem[personal profile] jordannamorgan on March 15th, 2018 05:30 am (UTC)
And a song titles suggestion: Metallica. Lots of colorful ones, and they've been around long enough to have a lengthy list. Here it is at both Wikipedia and the Metallica Wiki.
badly_knitted: Ficlet Zone Mod[personal profile] badly_knitted on March 15th, 2018 11:15 am (UTC)
Nice! Thank you!
like a lonely house[personal profile] delacourtings on March 14th, 2018 11:56 pm (UTC)
the west wing has a lot of great titles!

psych, eureka, better off ted, and izombie also have some pretty interesting ones!
badly_knitted: Ficlet Zone Mod[personal profile] badly_knitted on March 15th, 2018 12:11 am (UTC)
Great ideas, thanks! I've added them to the list for future use.

Original fic's allowed, right?
badly_knitted: Ficlet Zone Mod[personal profile] badly_knitted on March 16th, 2018 11:12 am (UTC)
Yep! Any kind of fic you want to write is welcome here. There's even a tag for it - category: original fic.

Go forth and be as original as you like!
digthewriter: dig the drunk[personal profile] digthewriter on March 16th, 2018 01:45 am (UTC)
Prompt suggestion: Song.

Have you ever been lonely sung by Patsy Cline
badly_knitted: Ficlet Zone Mod[personal profile] badly_knitted on March 16th, 2018 11:14 am (UTC)
I adore Patsy Cline, so I'll definitely add her songs to the list of future prompts.

cyberiad_queen: Eleven[personal profile] cyberiad_queen on March 19th, 2018 12:05 am (UTC)
Wowwie! Get a load of the turnout--on both sites! That's exciting! :D

And some music suggestions (now that I finally got around to it). There aren't many, but it's a pretty eclectic variety to choose from. ^.^

Songs by Michael Jackson

Red Hot Chili Peppers Songs

Songs by Linkin Park

Songs by Maroon 5
badly_knitted: Ficlet Zone Mod[personal profile] badly_knitted on March 19th, 2018 10:48 am (UTC)
Thanks for the suggestions,I've added them to the list - I think I have enough already for about three years, lol!

Yes, I'm thrilled there's been so much interest, even though only one person has posted anything yet *winks*

How do you like the theme and icons? I'm so pleased with how it all looks. I was lucky to have a graphics expert volunteer to handle that side of things =)
cyberiad_queen: Elation[personal profile] cyberiad_queen on March 19th, 2018 07:27 pm (UTC)
Wow! That's great. :D

Lol! I guess someone had to inaugurate it. ^.^

I love the icons--especially that gold-sparkly one! (I'm a total sucker for glitter!) And the layout confused me at first because it kept changing; but, now that it's settled, I like it a lot. :D
badly_knitted: Ficlet Zone Mod[personal profile] badly_knitted on March 19th, 2018 08:00 pm (UTC)
Indeed someone did. Everyone else (myself included) is getting off to a bit of a slow start but I'm sure they'll get moving soon.

I picked random layouts when I set up the community, intending to look for better options later, but when digthewriter threw some suggestions at me, I really liked this layout. It just took them a while to get the coding right on both sites; dreamwidth proved the trickiest, but now it's all sorted it looks terrific.

I like the sparkly bubbles too =D
cyberiad_queen: Triforce[personal profile] cyberiad_queen on March 19th, 2018 09:14 pm (UTC)
I'm so far behind on my writing; I might go and look the list over again and see if any more songs inspire anything.
badly_knitted: Ficlet Zone Mod[personal profile] badly_knitted on March 19th, 2018 09:20 pm (UTC)
I hope you find inspiration!

*\0/* Waves pompoms. You can do it!
smallhobbit: adipose[personal profile] smallhobbit on June 28th, 2018 02:46 pm (UTC)
I'm assuming there's no reason why I can't use a prompt for [community profile] fan_flashworks as well.
badly_knitted: Ficlet Zone Mod[personal profile] badly_knitted on June 28th, 2018 08:51 pm (UTC)
None whatsoever - combine challenges here with any others you like. Good luck!
David: cuddy[personal profile] gunsnships on March 24th, 2019 09:44 pm (UTC)
suggestions!
just saw this comm, really excited to participate!

two suggestions for future challenges:

House MD Episodes

Songs by Fall Out Boy

badly_knitted: Ficlet Zone Mod[personal profile] badly_knitted on March 24th, 2019 10:58 pm (UTC)
Re: suggestions!
Welcome aboard, I'm always delighted to see new people join! Remember, all past challenges remain open so feel free to dip in wherever inspiration strikes. I can see I'll need to add a House MD tag for you.

Also, thanks for the suggestions, I've added them to the list. Very impressed that you included links as well, makes it so much easier for me!

Hope you're going to enjoy writing for the community - everything from a Haiku to a multi-chapter epic is allowed, so dive in and have fun.

Hi, would like to be an affiliate with my community [community profile] 100prompts
badly_knitted[personal profile] badly_knitted on April 1st, 2019 08:42 pm (UTC)
Yes, I'd love to! Go ahead and affiliate, and I will too if I can figure out how I did that last time someone requested affiliation, lol! I'm not too good at the technical stuff!

And I've done my end!
