Hi, and Happy Weekend! It's time for another challenge. This go around I have three prompts for you. Just let me know you are in, and I will deal you up a love quote, a plot device/trope kind of thing, and an AU scenario. Use 'em all, use one or two, randomize all the words in them and come up of entirely different prompts - whatever floats your creative boat!

If the prompts bring inspiration by Thursday PM and want a reward, by all means request it - a few icons or a short ficlet will be delivered and will add to our December total!  :)
