This is the prompting post!

Prompts can be from any fandom. Please read the rules first.

When leaving prompts, please leave them in the following form: Fandom, characters, prompt. 

Crossovers should be left in the following form: Crossover, fandom a/fandom b, characters, prompt. (please put fandoms in alphabetical order)

RPF prompts should be left in the following form: RPF, fandom(s), characters, prompt.

You can leave as many prompts per comment as you like and as many prompts in one comment as you like! You do not have to plan to claim prompts in order to post prompts and posting prompts does not mean you have to participate in the claiming round. If you wish to recycle prompts from previous rounds of queer_fest or lgbtfest, you are welcome to do so.

Any questions/concerns about prompts should go to the rules post or via pm to the mod account. The rules post has been set to screen all comments to preserve privacy. If it's just a general question and not a problem with a prompt, it will be unscreened. Please contact us if you have a problem.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Comics fandoms: When prompts are compiled for claiming, all Marvel comics will be grouped together by universe - i.e., Marvel 616 or Marvel Ultimates, including the X-Men. The same is true for the DC Comics universe. Movies will be grouped together as well. The Avengers movies will be grouped together, but the X-Men and Spider-Man movies will be listed separately because they are not the same 'verse. Likewise, the Nolan Batman movies and Superman movies will be listed separately from the comics and from each other.  So if you want to keep that in mind when you are prompting, that's great! If you don't, that's fine, too, and we'll take care of it during the compiling period.
  • Agents of SHIELD will be listed under Agents of SHIELD, not the MCU.

Happy Prompting! Don't forget to read the rules! Prompting ends on March 29.

Prompting for 2014 Queer Fest is now closed.

Any cop fandom, any character. Being LGBT does not automatically make one an expert on all related topics, but the rest of the team/squad seems to think it should.

Any fandom, any bi/pan/omnisexual character, being excluded because of one's orientation sucks, no matter how it's sliced, but being declared "not gay enough" for one's local queer community is just salt in the wound.
Any fandom, any character, "Not all trans guys were lesbians first, you know." A nonstandard (FtM) trans narrative.
Any fandom, any character, a bisexual character explains mathematically why being bi doesn’t double one’s chances of a date.
Any fandom, any character, a non-op transperson or a genderqueer person doesn't tell their significant other because it'll just cause too much trouble. They're shocked when their partner comes out to them, instead.
Any fandom, any character, A self-professed poly character finds themselves unexpectedly jealous of a lover's second relationship.
Any fandom, any character, Being queer and mentally ill, and knowing the difference between the two.
Any fandom, any characters, A gay man and a lesbian woman living in a repressive society get married in order to protect themselves.
Any fandom, any characters, The religious conservatives are the ones adamant about protecting the rights of lgbt people; the scientific liberals are the ones causing problems.
Any Fandom, any Muslim lesbian character, Being a Muslim and a lesbian is hard - not because she struggles with her faith, but because the minute girls see her headscarf they just assume that she isn't looking for a girlfriend!

Any magic-based fandom, any character, A particular type of magic is based on sex or sexual orientation. How does this affect a queer character? An MtF character who wants to learn women's magic, an FtM character who is forced to despite identity, an asexual character who doesn't want to participate in sex magic...

Any modern day fandom, any character, How does a nation react when their newly-elected head of state comes out on live national television?

Avatar (2009), any characters, How do the Na'vi view gender/sexual identity?

bare: A Pop Opera, Nadia McConnell, She didn't *mean* to follow in Jason's footsteps. It was just that her parents already didn't know what to do with her and making out with girls pissed them off. But she's starting to think she's got more in common with her twin than she realised.
bare: A Pop Opera, Peter Simons, After the mess of his senior year of high school, Peter takes some time away from the whole church thing - and then, much to his surprise, finds a church tradition he's happy in that accepts him for who he is.

Brave, Merida, After a while she realises it's not even that she wanted to marry out of love (though that certainly makes the idea more bearable); it's more like she... doesn't want to marry anyone. Ever.
Brave, Merida, If it's all right for the male head of house to have a mistress, it should be all right for her to have one too.
Brave, Merida, She doesn't want to marry a man, she wants to marry a woman. And Merida is used to getting her way.

Cold Case, any detective, One of the cold jobs involving a queer victim (a canon case or one the author makes up) prompts one of the team to come out.
Cold Case, Billie Doucette/Rose Collins, So it's not easy for teenage interracial lesbians to hack it in 1932. That doesn't mean it's not worth trying, even when things get ugly. (Feel free to AU the heck out of canon here, seriously.)
Cold Case, Daniela, She thought getting out of her mother's house would be enough to let her claim her own identity and stop living in the shadow of her birth name. Unfortunately, Edwin is harder to lose than she'd expected.
Cold Case, Sam Randall, AU in which Sam gets a chance to figure out some answers rather than being strong-armed into performing 'girl' as 'girl' was performed in 1963. (Sam's identity - butch lesbian, FtM, genderqueer - is up to the author.)

Crossover, Eureka/Warehouse 13, Claudia Donovan & or / Douglas Fargo, Claudia's got questions; Fargo doesn't necessarily have answers, but he's had questions before himself, so he's willing to try to help.

Daria, Jodie Landon, Having finally secured a little space to live her own life separate from her parents' high-octane agenda for her, Jodie hesitates to come out to her parents lest they start pressuring her to be the Model Minority for yet another underprivileged group.

Discworld, Maladict, he confessed to being a girl because he thought that's what he was. But it didn't take long for him to realize that being a boy had fit him more than anything else.

Doctor Who, the Corsair (mentioned in "The Doctor's Wife"), The Doctor mentions that the Corsair regenerated as both male and female, and was evidently comfortable in both sorts of body. Run with that - was it ever deliberate? Was it unusual/frowned upon in Gallifreyan society to embrace such a fluid gender identity?

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, any characters, Sometimes, the line between hero and villain is less important than a common LGBT orientation.
Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, Dr. Horrible, Doc starts working on a sex-swapping ray with the thought of humiliating Captain Hammer. When someone in the local trans community hears about it and offers a group of free (and enthusiastic) test subjects, Doc starts reconsidering the ultimate goal... and whether it's a far more personal project than it first seemed to be.

Enchanted Forest Chronicles, any dragon, Dragons don't pick their name until they decide what gender they want to be. Roll with that.

Final Fantasy X, any character, As the extent to which Sin was a manufactured crisis comes to light, along with the church's various other cover-ups, they start wondering what else Yevon's teachings were lying about.
Final Fantasy X, any fayth of Zanarkand, Hey, as long as they're dreaming, they might as well make the kind of place where it's finally safe to be trans, right?
Final Fantasy X, Tidus or Jecht or original character, Zanarkand and Spira are two very different places in terms of queer experience (the kind of non-straight/cis, as well as which place is the better experience, are up to the author).

Friends, Chandler Bing, Even after they've outlived their usefulness, those 'you are a strong, confident woman who does not need to smoke' tapes have... complicated things. (MtF!Chandler)

Harry Potter, any character, A canon character uses spells/potions to transition from one sex to another.
Harry Potter, any character, With magic, there are many ways to change one's body; a trans character is determined to bring those avenues to muggle trans folk, in direct opposition of Ministry laws governing muggles/magic.
Harry Potter, any characters, A spell goes awry and the entire population of Hogwarts swaps gender. When they find a way to fix the spell, some people refuse to change back.
Harry Potter, any half-blood, quarter-blood (muggle grandparents), or muggleborn character, Character A gets so confused. Their orientation (or identity) breaks rules and expectations in the muggle world and in the wizarding world. Only it breaks DIFFERENT rules in each world! (The rules and expectations could be verbalized or they could be unspoken rules of the kind that everybody within a culture knows without ever stating them.)
Harry Potter, any muggleborn character, a muggleborn trans character, entranced by the possibilities of magic, sees no good reason why the (unfortunately conservative) wizarding world has not yet developed a workable method to permanently reassign gender, and so sets out to develop it hirself.
Harry Potter, any of the Trio's kids, Coming out would be daunting enough if their parents' fame didn't mean they'd be in the national spotlight whether they want to or not.
Harry Potter, any Slytherin, A House that is so devoted to keeping up appearances is... not the most welcoming place to be anything but straight and your assigned gender. On the surface, anyway.
Harry Potter, Charlie Weasley, The Weasleys thought they had a daughter much earlier than they did. Charlotte disagreed.
Harry Potter, Dudley Dursley, He doesn't know what will upset his parents more--marrying someone who can do magic, or marrying a guy.
Harry Potter, Gellert Grindelwald, Grindelwald has been in loose alliance with the Nazis for the Greater Good; then he finds out what the Nazis do to people like him (and Albus).
Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Every time someone calls her the Boy Who Lived is like a punch to the gut.
Harry Potter, Harry/Ron and Hermione/Ginny, The marriages were just to cover up Harry and Ron's and Hermione and Ginny's relationships - what happens when this comes out in the Daily Prophet?
Harry Potter, Harry/Ron/Hermione, the wizarding world is slightly more accepting of bisexual polyamory than the muggle equivalent, but not that much.
Harry Potter, Lily Luna Potter, The Wizarding World has always been socially conservative, and--thanks to the small population and the many war deaths--is now both overtly and covertly stressing the importance of marriage and children. Lily, now grown-up, is perfectly willing to marry her girlfriend and eventually adopt a child or two, but that's not what her family or her fellow wizards had in mind.
Harry Potter, Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy, They never talk about it, but they're both greatly relieved Draco was a boy; between Narcissa's preference for women and Lucius' total disinterest in sex, neither of them wanted to go through that again.
Harry Potter, Narcissa Malfoy, The House of Black is used to getting what they want - but what happens when what you want isn't the acceptable path for a pureblood lady to follow?
Harry Potter, Padma and Parvati Patil, Their House isn't the only difference between them.
Harry Potter, Parvati and Padma Patil, They're not scarily similar twins the way Fred and George Weasley are, but they do have very similar taste in girls.
Harry Potter, Parvati or Padma Patil or Dean Thomas or Blaise Zabini (or anyone else who might fit), They're already a minority as one of Hogwarts' few non-white students. Is it worth coming out as LGBT and adding yet another minority to the list?
Harry Potter, Petunia and Lily Evans, Petunia Evans hated her sister ever since Lily laughed and told her that there was no magic spell to make these strange feelings go away.
Harry Potter, Remus Lupin, The fact that he has a thing for Tonks doesn't invalidate his relationship with Sirius. And the fact that he's had insecurities in both relationships has nothing to do with his sexuality.
Harry Potter, Remus/Tonks, Remus wouldn't have married Tonks if she hadn't gotten pregnant by a person or persons unknown and he hadn't felt obligated to do the honorable thing before considering the problems of being a gay werewolf married to a straight human. Tonks doesn't know how to tell Remus that her 'lovelorn' behavior was a yearlong act to convince the Death Eaters that she'd lost her powers, that she knew all about Remus's lover (or lovers) and that she has a girlfriend in Chelsea.
Harry Potter, Teddy Lupin, no one thinks anything of it when Teddy's hair or nose changes, so why are they having so much trouble accepting this? (MtF!Teddy)

NCIS, Amanda Reed aka Lt. Commander Voss (S1 episode "Dead Man Talking"), Amanda wasn't looking for the sex change operation to get away with the embezzlement; the embezzlement was to pay for the sex change. (She may be a pretty horrible person, but I want something where she's not horrible on 'lol Tony tongued a tranny' grounds. Anything that does that, whether it uses this specific prompt or not, will make me a happy camper.)

Once Upon a Time, any dwarf, "There are no female dwarves." Except then there is one, she's just not female-bodied.
Once Upon a Time, any or original characters, Rumplestiltskin offers to fulfill someone's wish to live as the gender they identify with... for a price, of course. (What that price is and whether the character decides the price is worth it are both up to the author.)
Once Upon a Time, Mulan/Aurora(/Philip), This True Love business got rather more complicated than any of them were expecting, but all they can do is find a way to make it work.
Once Upon a Time, Red Riding Hood | Ruby/Victor Frankenstein | Dr. Whale, Ruby is extremely sexual (bi or pan); Dr. Whale is hetero- or bi-romantic, but very, very asexual. As their friendship starts sparking into romantic chemistry, they have to figure out how they're going to work with this difference.

Oz the Great and Powerful, Oscar "Oz" Diggs, Actually, the greatest trick of them all was getting people to take him seriously as a man.

Peanuts, Peppermint Patty(/Marcie), Maybe 'sir' isn't so far off the mark after all.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians, any character, Pondering whether it's allowed to ask the gods for a sex change/undertaking a quest to earn one.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians, any child of Aphrodite, Sometimes it's hard to convince your siblings there's more to love than sexual attraction, and yes, you can use Mom's blessings without wanting to sleep with anyone.
