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!

Prompt: True Blood or similar vampverse. A woman with spina bifida or early-acquired paraplegia of another sort is turned into a vampire. She decides to keep the wheelchair as it's part of her identity. She finds she still has vamp-powers while using the chair (lightning-fast speed, etc).

I love your Abed. Well, I love all of them, and you've captured them beautifully, but your Abed reads as AS and canon at the same time.

Okay, I have no idea if this is up your alley - like I said before, it only tangentially has anything to do with your prompt, plus, it involves child prostitution/rape (off-screen) and has characters expressing 19th century attitudes about... well, everything. But if none of that scares you off, here's the fic.

Do you want this linked in the Festibility index post, or do you feel it's too tangential? Totally your call.

I... don't know? I mean, it's a case file, it's not primarily about living with a disability. (Then again, the actual prompt filler I'm writing isn't either.) And it's from Watson's POV, so somewhere in the second draft I took away most of the mentions of pain, because I figured he'd be all Joe Stoic about it. So I'm not sure it fits. OTOH, anything to get me more readers, y'know?

Which means yes, I guess. If I'm allowed.

If you want, I could link it with an author's note that it's not primarily focused on the disability issues?

Anything on Elizabeth's mental health issues in The Real World. What if they weren't new? What if she'd been coping with some sort of mental health problems all along? What if they don't go away after TRW? I would love to see such a strong woman live with this (before or after), and still be able to live under the pressure of Atlantis. Or anything along those lines!

I thought the exact same thing! And then I thought of Doctor Strange, who often makes the same gesture while doing magic and has canonical permanent hand injuries that spurred his career change from surgeon to sorceror.

1) Winding Circle series by Tamora Pierce: Rosethorn suffered a brain injury (sort of) that left her with slurred speech. In the aftermath of that, Rosethorn's as opinionated as she always was, but has trouble making herself understood, most noticably in an emergency situation.

2) Chip Chase (Transformers G1) - declining offers from the Autobots to 'fix' his legs.

3) FFVII - Rufus turning his wheelchair into an advantage, esp. making people underestimate him. Because he is a cynical bastard like that.

4) Pokemon - any character, a Pokemon as a service animal. (Growlithe seems to be the Pokearth equivalent of a German shepherd in the cartoon, if it helps.)

Any fandom, any character: a realistic depiction of albinism. All of the visual limitations -- many people with albinism are legally blind; existing adaptive tech helps but can't "fix" it -- and cultural bias; bonus points if the character is chromatic (and no, that is not a contradiction in terms).
