Weekend Challenge: The Four Elements

Hey everyone! How's your week been? I hope you're almost done with your crossovers, and raring to go on another weekend challenge (and apologies that I still haven't completed rewards for the last one I ran; I'm going to have to make a concerted effort after this weekend to get them, August Rush rewards, and anything for this weekend done before too many more weeks pass!)

Anyway, without further ado... this weekend challenge is about Earth, Air, Water & Fire

I have found lists of songs featuring something to do with each of the four elements - be it ground or earth; wind or blowing; ocean or river; fire or burning; or something along those lines - there is a selection to choose from! All you have to do is give me one or more of the four elements above and the number of prompts you want for each element - whether that's one or several is up to you - and I'll give you a title and artist. For example, if you want one Fire prompt and two Water prompts: Fire 1, Water 2

Alternatively, if you want to go graphic, add the word 'pic' to your comment and I'll come up with something there. YES, you can have both songs and pics if you want; just specify which for each, e.g. Fire 1 song; Air 1 pic; Earth 2 songs.

What you make from there is up to you! A fic of 500+ words, a wallpaper, a series of icons; all are great! And for all who complete the challenge before midnight Sunday in your timezone, I will offer up two icons of your choice, 100 words in one of my WIPs, or a drabble+ of your choice in a fandom you know I write (if you don't know which they are, refer to the 'Rewards Offered' link in the list at the top left of the comm page).

Now, don't be afraid to take a step across the ground, dip your toes in the water, and feel that cool breeze of inspiration before the burning need to write strikes you! Comment away! I'm off to bed right now, but when I come back in the morning, I'll have those prompts for you! ;-)

if we ask for multiple prompts for each...is it 500 words per prompt or a single 500 word project including all of them?

I've been NaNo prepping all week and could use something short to write that's off topic for the NaNo ;)
Oct. 28th, 2016 04:17 pm (UTC)
a pic for each element would be awesome I think ;)

Is it ok to ask for both prompts as fic prompts? If not do as you will :D

Of course it is! Please use them any way you like!

Here are your pic links:


Good luck!

Can I have one of each please? I got a songfic/graphic prompt for ladiesbingo and maybe I can combine these.

No worries! I'm giving you songs here, but if you want graphics too, please let me know.

I've not been having much luck finishing weekend challenges lately... I think I have four that still aren't done. *headdesk*

But... I would like one prompt for each element, please!
Oct. 30th, 2016 12:39 am (UTC)
Ah well, save these for later if they don't strike your fancy right now; I have faith that you'll create for the ones gone by at some point! We don't mind if it's not instant; if it's words at some stage, it's all good!

Try these:

Garden Party - Rick Nelson
In the Air Tonight - Phil Collins
Black Water - Doobie Brothers
I'm on Fire - Bruce Springsteen

Have fun! ;-)
