What is the Three Sentence Ficathon?

This is a challenge where you answer a prompt with a fic consisting of only three sentences.  Simple right?  The sentences can be as long or as short as you like and it's open to all fandoms.

Each day I will leave a prompt, perhaps it will be funny quote from Monty Python, Blackadder or The State or something more on the mystery, action/adventure side of things and hopefully the prompts will inspire your three sentence fic.  You can post your three sentence fics after the prompt or create a new entry here or with links to your journal, whichever works best for you.

Lastly, HAVE FUN!!

Day !'s Prompt:  "I’ve got no option but to sell you all for scientific experiments.”

Here are some examples:

“You weren’t very clear before, so now I have a bunch of questions with the first one being, what kind of experiments exactly? “
“Are we talking psychological or physical and does it involve blood loss?”
“And yes, these are still considered the first question.”


“I really hope we get mentioned in a science journal, and one that’s reputable and not just published out of someone’s basement.”
“Maybe we’ll even show up on Discovery or the Science channel but we better not get the ScFy channel.”
 “I wonder how much we’ll get paid for accidental maiming,”

“What the hell do you mean by ‘sell us for scientific experiments,” Zayne asked, worried.

“I think he’s finally done with us, cowboy,” James replied with a wink.

“Either that or he’s convinced you’re both aliens,” Trish laughed.

Fill, NCIS, Nick/Ellie

At the end of a long day that follows days of long days, Gibbs’s impatience is like a fifth man in the bullpen and when he snaps, “Can you all find something before I’ve got no option but to sell you all for scientific experiments?” Nick responds without thinking.

“Bishop first; after all,” he says, casting a sly eye in her direction, “that brain of hers has got to be worth millions.”

The resulting glare from Gibbs stops him in his tracks, sends him back to his work, but it’s the pleased smile on Ellie’s lips, the slight flush of pink that tinges her cheeks, that stays in Nick’s mind long after the case has been solved.

OZ - The Moneymaker
“We’ve tried the dress factory, the printing press, the telemarketing gig, and none of them have gotten us anywhere, and, with the minimal risk involved, the Governor has offered this as a solution,” Querns said.

“Well, you can forget about this guy being a guinea pig,” Ryan O’Reily said, pointing to himself, “because they told me I was in the placebo group three years ago for those experimental aging drugs, but I’ve got hairs that have gone white and haven’t turned back.”

Poet shook his head and mouthed the words, “You’re old” before asking the question that sent the room into chaos, “Why can’t we just make a gay porn movie?”

Re: OZ - The Moneymaker
Thanks. I don't know if you've watched OZ, but the experimental aging drug thing really did happen on the show (and is the gift that keeps on inspiring a lot of crack-fic)

Re: OZ - The Moneymaker
I was more of a Prison Break fan but experimental aging drugs are just fanfic stories waiting to happen :):)

Teen Wolf Scott & Stiles
"Who does this guy think he is?" Scott whispered.

Stiles shrugged, "I don't know, but his supervillain monologue needs work."

"Excuse me mister supervillain but you might be selling us off for experiment sometime soon...I mean you can hear the rest of the pack coming..."

yeah, its late but I wanted to do this 'right' lol

I wanted to add so much more to the sentences, but being on my phone, everything is all wonky.

Re: Teen Wolf Scott & Stiles
I like to think of these three sentence fics like I do drabbles, they are a wonderful writing exercise, forcing us to be concise.

Nicely done :):)

Avengers inspired fic
"Phil!" Clint hollered as he glared at Tony.

"What now?" Phil hollered back.

"Tony's threatening to sell the bots again!"

"Stark stop threatening to sell Clint's playmates and get back to work!"

"But Phil?!" Tony groused as he sent a murderous glare in Clint's direction.

"If you two don't knock it off, I'm going to taze you and have Natasha use you for target practice!"

Re: Avengers inspired fic
Lovely work, though I do feel sorry for the bots, Tony's always threatening them :)

RE: Re: Avengers inspired fic
Thanks. They are his kids and I don't think he would know what to do without them in his life. Clint adopting them just adds to the fun in the Tower...lol
