we will unfuck this situation at a later date

Round One is finished.

All the fics that were sent in have been posted. FOUR of our recipients still have not received stories, and it doesn't look like their writers will come through (in the interest of full disclosure, one of them is me). However, I'd like to give all y'all the opportunity to gift them with some fic (of any length - doesn't have to be 1000 words). Post it to the community as usual, if one of these prompts catches your fancy!

for amaresu:

Request One
Fandom: Highlander
Character(s): Amanda, Methos and/or Nick (or anyone but Ritchie really, Amanda is essential)
Prompt: Protection detail gone hilariously wrong

Request Two
Fandom: Supernatural
Character(s): Anna, plus others as you see fit
Prompt: Post 4.10, what exactly happened after the big flash of white light in the barn?

Request Three
Fandom: Brimstone
Character(s): Zeke
Prompt: Loose change, sprinkles, used books, kleenex

Request Four
Fandom: The Abhorsen Trilogy
Character(s): Anyone. Honest.
Prompt: Something set post-Abhorsen. Picking up the pieces, settling into new roles. Anything along those lines.

Three Things I Don't Want: No character bashing. It's just not classy. Oh, and please no emo!Methos if you decide to write my Highlander prompt. Emo!Methos makes me cry. ;_;

amaresu's assignment has been fulfilled with A Very Simple Assignment (Highlander) by celli and Blood of the Ninth (Abhorsen) by wheatear.

for wheatear:

Request One
Fandom: Doctor Who (new)
Character(s): Jenny
Prompt: Jenny lands on 21st century Earth. You decide how - the Doctor, the Master, Time Agents, Rift activity, whatever. And lots of running.

Request Two
Fandom: Harry Potter
Character(s): Any minor Slytherin student
Prompt: A view of an event in Goblet of Fire or Order of the Phoenix, as seen from a Slytherin perspective. A sympathetic character is preferred.

Request Three
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII (original game)
Character(s): Tifa
Prompt: What happened after Cloud's fall from the reactor, leading up to Tifa infiltrating the Don's mansion.

Request Four
Fandom: Final Fantasy IX
Character(s): Any thespians
Prompt: A play

Three Things I Don't Want: No introspective character pieces - I want plot! No angst. Nothing too dark - I'd prefer a humorous slant.

for shinealightonme:

Request One
Fandom: Doctor Who (new)
Character(s): Mickey Smith
Prompt: Mickey after "Journey's End" – he's grown and changed a lot during his time on the TARDIS and in the alternate universe, so how does he settle back "home"?

Request Two
Fandom: Stargate: SG-1
Character(s): Teal'c (Jonas and/or Mitchell and/or Vala optional)
Prompt: Teal'c has unique place within the SGC, simultaneously insider and outsider, and I'd love a story that explores that – his views of the SGC and Earth, his process of learning a new culture, etc. It would also be awesome but is not necessary to see him relate to Jonas and/or Vala as fellow aliens, or to Mitchell as "the new guy" and therefore also an outsider of sorts.

Request Three
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Character(s): Weir and/or Beckett and/or Zelenka (if you also want to write someone else who fits the bill, that'd be great)
Prompt: A mission goes awry for Sheppard and his team – how do those left back on Atlantis deal with the frustration and anguish of waiting, unable to help directly?

Request Four
Fandom: Pushing Daisies
Character(s): Emerson, Chuck, Olive
Prompt: How are the dynamics within the group different when they spend a day at the Pie Hole without Ned? They assure him they can hold down the fort just fine, but things don't go as smoothly as planned – either in a "wacky hijinks" sort of way, or more serious problems between characters, whichever you prefer (but I love all of these characters so don't make one the "villain" if you go the second route).

Three Things I Don't Want: excessive embarrassment/humiliation, unrelenting angst (I'm okay with angst, even with character death, as long as there is at least a hint of hope)

for spockish_girl

Request One
Fandom: Supernatural
Character(s): Dean and John
Prompt: Sammy is off at college. Dean gets hurt on a hunt with his father, unconscious and bleeding. John has to take care of his son by himself. Hospital is out of the question.

Request Two
Fandom: Star Trek (2009 or TOS, whatever works)
Character(s): Kirk, McCoy (and/or Spock)
Prompt: "Jim, why is it that you always get yourself in so much trouble". Jim is stabbed. H/C ensues.

Request Three
Fandom: Star Wars (Prequel-verse)
Character(s): Anakin and Obi-Wan
Prompt: Obi-Wan is teaching Anakin the ways of the force, looking for just a cute fic with Obi-Wan being the daddy figure. Helping Anakin with the little things. :-)

Request Four
Fandom: Buffy
Character(s): Spike and Buffy
Prompt: "Bye bye baby. Don't be long. I'll worry about you while you're gone." - Buffy leaves angry, Spike follows, he worries about her. He watches over her.

Three Things I Don't Want: Character deaths, no open endings please, I really need some kind of resolution or finish to the story.

I'd like to thank all of our pinch hitters, and especially alexajohnson, who picked up not one, but TWO extra stories to write, on top of her original assignment. :) Thanks hon.

Real life has been especially time-consuming in the last few months - as I'm sure you've noticed - and it doesn't seem like that's changing. In a few days I'll put up a poll and questions for your feedback and the future of gen_ficathon.

The masterlist is coming soon! *g*
