Welcome to the Festibility prompts post!

Festibility is a fandom festival accepting all kinds of fanworks (fic, meta, art, icons, podfic, vids, recs, picspams, drabble sets etc) about disabled characters. Works can focus on canonically disabled characters or canonically able-bodied characters that you reimagine as disabled. Pieces can be as long or short as you like. You can find out more at the Festibility announcement post on access_fandom!

Here’s how the prompts will work:

Prompts can be general or fandom- or character-specific. You can also choose to specify a type of disability. Be creative and have fun. Post prompts now through September 15th!

Fills can be posted starting Thursday, July 15th and the posting period goes until September 15th. We encourage you to post disability-centric fanworks to [community profile] access_fandom after the close of the fest. After September 15th, please post to the community instead of commenting here, and link back to the prompt (if any) that inspired you.

Nest Your Responses. Respond directly to a prompt with the text of your story in the comment or a link to the story if it is posted elsewhere.

Anonymous commenting is allowed. To post anonymously when logged in, click on 'More Options' and pick 'Anonymous'. Do not ask anyone to reveal themselves if they choose to post anonymously.

Warnings:
We want warnings to be a community standard for this festival. If you need help putting warnings on your fan work, please ask your beta or contact a moderator. We accept “Choose Not To Warn” as a warning, but in the interest of making this fest as accessible as possible we prefer to have works be labeled with specific trigger warnings.

ETA: Please state one of the following on your work: "No warnings apply", "Choose Not to Warn" or include warnings/content notes mentioning any triggering material that does apply to your work. Marking your work in this way helps people with triggers to navigate the Festibility responses. Thank you! /ETA

Warn for common triggers even if the prompt implies some. You must warn for common violent or sexual triggers. Unwarned stories/art are subject to immediate screening at the mods' discretion.

o Triggers to warn for:
o non-con, dub-con, and rape
o character death
o suicide
o self-injury
o child abuse
o graphic torture
o incest
o underage (under the age of 18)
o extremely ableist language
o mind control
o If you are uncertain if you should include a warning, better safe than sorry.

The above list is not all-inclusive or meant to be limiting: people can and should warn for other things. You can gray out warnings or spoilers using this code that amadi posted, which also works for screenreaders.

If you have a policy of not warning, you must put "Author does not warn" in the subject line. Failure to do so will result in immediate screening/deletion.

Post links to NSFW images or images that require warnings. Do not embed them.

Single prompts can be answered as many times as you wish.

Anonymous posting and commenting is allowed.

Language reminder: Please say “has diabetes”, don’t say “suffers from diabetes” or “suffers hearing loss” when describing someone’s disability. Please say “uses a wheelchair” or similarly neutral language, do not say “wheelchair bound” or “confined to a wheelchair”. Please do not use ableist or other oppressive pejoratives such as “lame”. For more about inclusive language, click on the language tag of this community. Also, please do not include disabilities in your content warnings--It is disrespectful to cast a piece of someone's identity as a warning.

ETA: There have been some concerns raised about this language policy. For clarification, this language reminder is meant more for prompt suggestion than for actual fic. You are allowed to use whatever language you like in your fan fic. If there is a lot of ableist language in your fic, we would prefer that you warn for it in your fic headers. You are also welcome to address the negative as well as the positive aspects of living with a disability.

Thank you for participating! Let the prompts begin!

You gave me a plotbunny, though I'm not sure exactly how well the final story will fit the prompt. (Esp. depending on the definition of "romantic".)

Doctor Who - a Deaf companion, either OC or an AU version of a canon one. How does the TARDIS deal with translation from and to sign language? How well does it work with lip reading, non-verbal alien languages, or culturally dependent body language? What would the companion's POV be on these and other issues? What would be harder/easier/different than expected?

X-Men (any canon that doesn't have floating hoverchairs.) Charles Xavier is the world's most powerful telepath. This does not help as much as you might think when it comes to navigating buildings that are not ADA-compliant.

X-Men comicverse canon, an AU where Magneto has actually gotten a diagnosis, and treatment, for his mental illnesses (it looks to me like he probably has both PTSD and a form of bipolar disorder where overuse of his powers triggers mania.) But even in the X-Men universe there is no perfect magical fix for his problems, so he needs to be on meds. How does this affect his perception of himself, his dealings with the X-Men, his dealings with other mutants such as the Acolytes? Are there former followers of his who think that his being on meds is a form of drug-induced mind control that's being inflicted on him and will try to force him to stop taking them? Are there X-Men or other superheroes who refuse to believe that he has his symptoms under control, and are convinced he's going to have another episode and try to take over the world again? Do his meds have side effects?

From: [personal profile] binz
Dresden Files, book!verse. How is disability treated in the magical communities? Wizards come with increased healing and long lifespans; Harry's badly burned hand has been healing slowly and surely, his brain damage hasn't been directly referenced since it happened (speculations on his migraines notwithstanding), and (skip) his broken back was healed almost immediately.
In the practitioner community, we've been told that the talent of precognition is treated as a disability by the non-magical world (and can "leave [the practitioners] open to instabilities"): “It’s a dangerous talent to have. It can leave you subject to instabilities of one kind or another as side effects. Doctors almost always diagnose folks like Abby with epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, or one of a number of personality disorders. I got five bucks that says that medical bracelet on her wrist says she’s epileptic—and that the dog can sense seizures coming and warn her.”

What would life be like as a wizard with a pre-existing disability that couldn't be magic-ed away? How would zie be treated; what effects might practicing magic have on zir disability? If treatment is available but based strongly on technological means, what further difficulties might zie face from the non-magical community and the expectations of management?

Alternatively, what of the results of practicing magic, for either/or/and the practitioner and non-practitioners? From a precognitive or similar talent such as in the previously quoted section; disability caused by others' use of magic to invade the mind; from things viewed with the Sight, such as with Harry's encounter with the Skinwalker in Turn Coat.

Dresden Files, bookverse. Ivy was kidnapped and tortured in Small Favor; she has PTSD. How is her experience complicated by her role as The Archive, including knowing everything ever written about PTSD -- theories, treatments, junk treatments, prejudices, history, other peoples' experiences? and that her descendants will retain her memories and experience of the kidnapping and torture, and her PTSD?

The Mentalist, Patrick Jane. I'd love to see a fic that deals with Jane's breakdown and subsequent stay at a psychiatric hospital realistically rather than as a generic h/c scenario. Bonus points if the fic also deals with the skeeviness of his relationship with Sophie Miller, and his intense distrust of doctors (possibly caused by his post!breakdown experiences).

From: [personal profile] angelikitten
Any fandom, any character: dealing with the side effects of an assistive device (eg: using a cane/walking stick resulting in hand/arm pain, being allergic to a service animal, side effects from medications)

(Not that I think that service animals are devices - I just can't think of a better encompassing term right now.)

gehayi: (dresden by moonlight (endlessdeep))
From: [personal profile] gehayi
Dresden Files, bookverse. Harry Dresden has been shot in the back and has experienced an injury to his spinal cord. While wizards do heal until damage, including scarring, is eliminated (and consequently have potential lifespans of centuries), healing takes a long, long time. Consequently, Harry's confined to a wheelchair for an average human lifetime--at least seventy years, possibly longer--and no magical spell, potion or deal will heal his spine any quicker. How does he deal with the disability? How does it affect his jobs, his friendships, the way that people react to him, and the way he sees himself?

Bonus points if Harry's magic interferes with his hospitalization (this includes rehab facilities and convalescent homes) and his use of any modern assistive devices.

Prompt is a spoiler for the latest Harry Dresden book. (skip) I'd love to see a story where Harry doesn't get automagically healed from his back injury.

Ex Machina (comic): I'd love to see something dealing with lingering physical disability caused by the accident that gave Hundred his powers. Some of it is canon -- there are references to reconstructive surgery, using makeup to cover his scars, and being deaf in the ear on the affected side -- and it's plausible that there are other invisible or mostly-invisible effects that continue to be an issue for him: pain, stiffness, nerve damage, mobility issues and so forth.

I'm writing this, tentatively? I don't know too much about fibro but I'm really trying. I loved the suggested format.
