Comment fic Friday

Heya everyone! It's Friday, and as it's been a while since the last one, it's time for...

no title

And the prompt for tonight is:

Afternoon Delight


So whether one character of your choice is getting down and dirty with another character of your choice on a leisurely afternoon, or it's as simple as someone having an ice-cream at the beach before dinner, we'd love to hear all about it! Can you come up with 700-800 words (as much as you can fit in a comment) to give us that slice of life? Now's your chance!

Create something for this prompt and post or link it here; any genre, any fandom, any rating (although please warn or use spoilers if it's NSFw/explicit), and best of all: no time limit! So get creating - it doesn't matter if you post it tonight or in several months; it's all good! ;-)

Weekend Challenge: Weird and Wacky Titles

It's me again - and as I haven't yet had time to set up the schedule for weekend challenges, I am your host once again! I'm cheating a bit as I'm revisiting an old challenge I ran in early 2016, but with a bit of luck you'll get a different prompt if you were involved last time around (and you can always ask for a swap if you do find you get the same one again), or perhaps you didn't play or weren't here then, so here goes!

I have five categories for odd book/song titles:

A. Suggestive Stories
B. Sounds Like Trouble
C. Who Are These People?
D. Instruction Manuals
E. If Only I'd Asked


All you have to do is comment here to ask for one or more prompts from any of the above categories; I can throw you something of my choice (just tell me how many), or you can specify number/s anywhere from 1 to 20 for the A & B categories, and from 1 to 16 for the rest, and I will give you whichever real titles correspond to the number/s as your weekend challenge prompt/s!

As for your rewards this weekend, I'm afraid I can only offer to add words to a WIP, because I am SO BEHIND on everything, thus I really need to get on some of these. I can offer you your choice of WIP for me to work on, though, and if you'd like to see what the words were (somewhere around 200 if I can manage it), I'll show you the excerpt, but if you'd rather leave the choice to me and/or don't need to see those words, that's all good too! For suggestions on which WIP I should work on, go here and let me know in your comment when you post your creation/link before midnight Sunday in your own time zone! ;-)
