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!

I love this.

Thanks :) I figured even telepathic infodump would have a delay that could be deadly in the field. It would just remove physical speech-speed barriers.

Did you deliberately mean to choose not to warn, or did you forgot to specify "None of the following warnings apply"?

Inception: Dream logic is not the same in all brains. Either extraction from or extraction working with someone whose mental logic is not the same as a neurotypical's, and how that changes the dream landscape.
From: (Anonymous)
Forgot to specify, and I apologize for that. It is unfortunately impossible to edit an anon comment.

From: [personal profile] amaresu
I've never really given much thought to my stuttering (or stuttering in general). It was just something that was there and I avoided doing it as much as possible. It wasn't until I read some of those links that I really started thinking about all the things I do to avoid the stuttering. It's been very eye opening.

From: [personal profile] killing_rose
CSI prompt:

Gil Grissom--What if he'd been someone for whom the surgery to reverse otosclerosis symptoms not only didn't work, but made it worse?

(Alternatively, what if he'd chosen not to go through with the surgery at all?) What's going on in his life 6 months, 5 years, etc. down the road?

(What's his thought process? The team's? How important is their opinion in the end?)

toft: the old spice guy says 'hello ladies' (old spice guy)
From: [personal profile] toft
The Old Spice Man has an anxiety disorder of some kind, perhaps a panic disorder or OCD, or a severe phobia of a common thing (fish?). Is his ability to suddenly be on a horse his way of dealing with his anxiety? Or does he find the sudden propensity of tickets to become diamonds extremely stressful and exhausting? Bonus points for a story of him growing up and learning how to physically manipulate the world around him and constantly projecting a front of magnificence as a way to manage his anxiety, and, eventually, become an intergalactic space hero.

You don't know how happy that storyline would make me. Especially if it did not star Monk.
