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.

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!

What disability is Simon Tam hiding because he thinks he has to be strong for/can't complain because he has less problems than his sister?

It may not be my prompt, but I'd still read it if you wrote it! The war has to have left a lot of people with injuries.

I wrote a story which deals incidentally with River having been selected for The Academy because she has a genetic condition with various characteristics, including psychic ability--so those shots he's always giving her are the equivalent of insulin for the conditioin. It's an X-linked recessive, so Simon has it too but to a lesser extent, e.g., he's a telepath but a pretty le-se telepath:

It's a Blakes7 crossover so the B7-y parts may not make much sense to Firefly fans.

er sorry should have said that's spoiler gray, not warning. You pretty much can't talk about Fight Club without spoiling it :P I'm sure the vast majority of people here know, but it's such a huge spoiler I think better safe than sorry.

I knooooow. I realized yesterday that if someone writes a fic to this prompt, I'm going to be scared of reading it (though I will, I totally will).

I suspect the prompt is me trying to exorcise my fears, really.

Quick update - 8,700 words so far. It's looking to top out at around 12,000-13,000. :D

The ending was causing me fits for days, because neither option was totally satisfying, so I kind of decided to punt on it a bit, leave it sort of open-ended.

I tried. He's not totally blind on that side in this, but what vision he's got left isn't very useful to him.

A Matter Of Secrets

Summary: Zuko's been keeping the true magnitude of the damage to his face from everyone, but he can't hold it in much longer after Toph catches him in the deception. Set at Iroh's tea shop after the series ends.


Contains some ableist language and attitudes due to most of the characters in it being teenagers who keep stumbling over their words, and because of being written with the assumption that 100 years of war-making would have changed how the Fire Nation viewed disabilities that could affect performance on a battlefield.

Contains non-graphic references to past child abuse; these are constrained to how Zuko got his scar and to the events leading to his mother's disappearance.

Also contains 16-year-olds kissing, along with a teenage head of state simultaneously wondering if his girlfriend will accept him for who he is and if she would make a good

I deleted an accidental double post, and accidentally got the one with the completed last line. It should read "and if she would make a good wife for someone in his political position."
