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.

mirroreuler: Riki and Kyousuke from Little Busters standing in the snow at night, kissing (Little Busters!)
From: [personal profile] mirroreuler
Some to start off with - hopefully I'll be able to get the rest in the next few weeks:


Any yuri fandom, any yuri ship, Their relationship isn't quite the utterly 'pure' romantic friendship it's often seen to be. They're dating, and they're into each other. A lot.
Any fandom, any ace/aro character, They have very strong, even romantic feelings for another person, but they have no real desire to date them – in fact, they don't really want to date anyone, and the idea of being friends this person makes them happier than anything they could imagine.
Any fandom, any robot character, No matter what their physical appearance looks like, they can't help but think it was pretty silly of humans to assume that robots would have the same feelings about gender/sexuality as they do.
Any fandom, any bisexual/pansexual character, In the past, they were given the option of being with someone of the same sex, but opted not to out of fear of homophobic repercussions. Now, they're with someone of the opposite sex, and have very particular feelings (agreeing or disagreeing) about insinuations that they 'took the easy way out'.
Any fandom, any aromantic character, In a society where romantic love is held up as the pinnacle of human existence, they find themselves quite content, thank you very much.
Any fandom, any character, They prefer to think of their sexuality as a personal thing, and don't like to tell other people unless it's necessary. It's not because of shame – they're just a private sort of person. But some other people seem to take it as shame anyway, and it's becoming very irritating.
Any fandom, any character, The difference between romance and friendship can be very hard to see, and that's especially so when you're not actually attracted to the person in question. When putting a label to it is all it amounts to, how important is it to know the difference? (Fic could go either way on it being important or unimportant.)
Any fandom, any character, It helps – it really does – to know that their friends and family would still love them if they knew. But as long as they aren't comfortable with themselves, they don't want to be out.
Any fandom, any character, People always used to joke about them, so now they can't imagine anything more irritating than admitting that they were all right all along.
Any fandom, any character, For ages they insisted that they couldn't possibly be gay because they've been attracted to the opposite sex in the past, so any feelings of attraction to the same sex must be false. When bisexuality finally becomes an option, a lot of things slot into place.
sexuality encounters someone from a culture/place/time where sexuality is irrelevant. Does their view on sexuality change, or not?
Any fandom, any character, When they realised they were bi rather than gay, they were relieved, as they thought that as long as they got married to someone of the opposite sex, they'd never have to deal with their sexuality. And then they fall in love with someone of the same sex, and everything becomes much harder.
Any fandom, any character, They knew that being queer was possible, obviously, but it always seemed to apply to other people totally different to who they were. Until one of their friends came out, and a whole new world opened up for them.

Little Busters, Haruka, It's sometimes a little hard for her to tell the difference between her family's nonsensical, abusive preferences and things that actually are bad but which they just had an exaggerated response to. So when the topic of queerness presents itself, Haruka doesn't know what to think.
Little Busters, Kengo, It isn't repression – Kengo just really isn't interested in sex or romance at all.
Little Busters, Komari, She meant it 100% when she wailed to Riki that now she'd never be able to get a wife.
Little Busters, Kurugaya, She finally gets a girlfriend and, incredibly, some people are actually surprised. Not that she cares too much what other people think, but how obvious did she need to make her flirting, anyway?!
Little Busters, Kurugaya+Riki, Riki seems strangely ignorant of the concept of bisexuality. As much as Kurugaya may feel she is an adequate enough demonstration every day, it's time for Anego to set some things straight.
Little Busters, Riki/Kyousuke, Riki seemed much, much more bothered by having 'obscene thoughts' about his friend when it was Kyousuke than when it was any of the girls. Why exactly is that?
Little Busters, Riki/Kyousuke, Kyousuke doesn't mind teasing Riki because he's convinced that Riki has an adolescent admiration of him that he's only mistaking for a crush. After all, Riki likes girls, so he has to be straight, and there's no way Kyousuke's making the mistake of going after him anyway.
Little Busters, Riki/Kyousuke, Riki's always liked to believe that Kyousuke tells him everything, so when he stumbles upon something that seems to indicate that at the least he might have been less than fully truthful about his sexuality, he has to ask himself why.
Little Busters, Riki/Kyousuke: Dating Kyousuke would be nice, sure, but with Riki's life the way it is, he has it rough enough in all kinds of ways already, and he's really not too keen on adding a queer relationship to the list.
Little Busters, Riki/Kyousuke: Riki's crush on Kyousuke has always deeply bothered him, as he sees it as a strange thing that perverts the normal course of their friendship and which would likely disturb Kyousuke if he knew. Unfortunately, to Kyousuke it just appears as though Riki finds the idea of them dating disgusting, so he's always held himself back, too.
Little Busters, Riki/Kyousuke and Riki/Rin: Growing up is hard when you're bisexual and both of your friends are hot.
Little Busters, Rin, She doesn't really know about any of this stuff, so even the complete failure of her and Riki's brief relationship coupled with her total lack of lifetime interest in men altogether doesn't immediately start to make her wonder whether she's even into guys after all.
Little Busters, Rin/Komari, Rin has basically no knowledge base of gay couples at all, and more than a few misconceptions about how they work. As far as she's concerned, she's the Man, so she'll have to be the one to lead Komari, even if she has no idea what she's doing at all.

Kanon, Yuuichi/Sayuri/Mai, Queer bisexual polyamorous domestic love – what Mai needed all along, really.

Princess Tutu, Fakir, In his studies, Fakir discovers a version of the Princess Tutu story in which the prince and his knight were lovers.

Game of Thrones, any character, While Westeros might be based on real-world medieval Europe, it most certainly isn't identical to it, and queerness is viewed quite differently there.
Game of Thrones, Loras, Just because he won't ever be able to marry a person he loves doesn't mean he's happy with marrying anyone. How much say did he have in his arranged marriages with Sansa and Cersei, and how does he feel about it all?
Game of Thrones, Loras and Margaery, What they love the most about one another is that they will never, ever have to lie to each other about who they are.
Game of Thrones, Sansa/Margaery, Even if her childish fantasies about princes and marvellous marriages have long since disappeared, it's still a little frightening to think that her truly beloved might be another woman.


Any applicable fandom, any character, what it means for an LGBT person to have 'one of us' on the TV (or fandom suitable equivalent). 
Any Fandom with Alternate Universes, any characters, Character X learns that an alternate version of them is/was in a same-sex relationship and begins to question their sexuality.
Any fandom, any asexual (but not aromantic) character, Exploring the boundaries of what kind of physical expressions of affection are enjoyable to them, and the problems of doing that with a partner who may not understand that these expressions are not a prelude to sex.
Any fandom, any character, a bisexual character is tired of people assuming that being out of the closet or identifying as queer isn't important to them.
Any fandom, any character, a bisexual or pansexual character wants to be open about being poly, but doesn’t want to be seen as or perpetuate a stereotype.
Any fandom, any character, A character passes for gay to hide the fact that they're having pretty serious issues with their gender identity
Any fandom, any character, A character struggling with the perception everyone else has of them, that they couldn't possibly be gay/bisexual. 
Any Fandom, any character, a multisexual character in a long-term monogamous heterosexual relationship makes the decision to come out to hir kid(s).
Any fandom, any character, an asexual character finds sex tolerable but dull. How does their sex partner keep it entertaining for both of them? 
Any Fandom, any character, being married to [the character's] (opposite-sex) high school sweetheart made [the character's] bisexuality/pansexuality/fluid sexuality more theoretical than anything else... until [the character's] spouse brings up the idea of polyamory and opening up their relationship.
Any Fandom, any character, bringing home her first girlfriend to meet the parents was much, MUCH easier than bringing home her current girlfriend AND boyfriend (pronouns for clarity, switch as inspired).
Any fandom, any character, Character X decides/is dared to experiment with homosexuality by kissing (or whatever) a friend who is known to be gay/bi/etc. Friend is hurt when Character X reverts firmly to heterosexuality, possibly acting cruelly toward their friend, while they process the fact that they enjoyed the experiment a lot more than they expected.
Any fandom, any character, Character X struggled to come to terms with their feelings for a same sex love interest. Discovering that their love interest was crossdressing all along leaves Character X feeling relieved *and* disappointed 
Any fandom, any character, Coming out is one thing--changing her/his behavior is another. Even if they're out in a welcoming community, they never quite stop flinching. How does s/he deal with the difference between theoretically knowing they're welcome not to conform and actually not conforming?
Any Fandom, any character, Growing up, hir guardians were particularly homophobic. Zie thought zie had gotten over it, but when zie feels utter terror at the idea that zie might be queer, forgotten prejudices surface.
Any fandom, any character, how a character deals with casual homophobia (tasteless jokes, thoughtless remarks) when it comes from somebody they care about. Is it worth saying anything when you know they don't really mean to hurt you?
Any Fandom, Any Character, They've never had any reason to doubt that they're heterosexual. And they are! But they never even considered whether they might be bi- or homoromantic, a question which turns out to be much more complicated.
Any Fandom, Any Character, Throughout their life they've internalised an idea of sex being bad and wrong, especially between two people of the same sex. So when they find themselves very close to a friend of theirs, they justify it as a purer, idealized version of strong friendship that is free from the dirtiness of sex. Unfortunately, that's not exactly true. 
Any fandom, any characters, a happy, UST-free gay friendship
Any fandom, any characters, In the vein of Bruce Coville's 'Am I Blue?' the entire queer population of any fandom is magically outed (actual blueness optional). How do they deal with this/how does the focal character respond to the knowledge that they're not alone?

Avatar: The Last Airbender, Aang/anyone, discussing past lives and Aang's experience of sexuality/gender identity
Avatar: The Last Airbender, any character, Each of the nations have their own view on LGBT rights. The Fire Nation, as the most advanced nation and going through an industrial revolution, is going through a similar revolution regarding queer issues. The Earth Nation, as a wide-reaching and ever-changing country that nevertheless sometimes shuts itself off from the rest of the world, is less positive, but not totally against it. The Water Tribes, very isolated areas that often very much stuck in the past regarding women's rights, are totally against it. And the Air Nomads were supposed to distance themselves from worldly pleasures, anyway. These differences have made things...difficult, at times.
Avatar: The Last Airbender, Iroh, Iroh's sexual orientation is one reason why he is seen as being unfit to rule the Fire Nation. 
Avatar: The Last Airbender, Zuko, Zuko's not female, but the Blue Spirit is.
