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!

Cordelia Naismith Vorkosigan and the PTSD she picked up during the war(s, either Escobar or the Pretender's War, or both). Since she's dropped as viewpoint character after the Pretender's War, we don't get to see the long-term effects particularly much.

Any fandom with settings where a wide variety of sentient beings mix and mingle:

What happens when universal design goes literally universal- or galactic, or multiplanar? How does having so much physical and/or mental diversity between species affect attitudes to diversity within-species?

Bones. After meeting Brennan's cousin Margaret at Christmas dinner in "The Goop on the Girl" (S5), it's even more obvious than before that Autism Spectrum Diorders/Asperger's run in Brennan's family. But who in the lab is aware enough for it to be "obvious"...and who either blunders into saying something in passing, thinking "everyone knows/has seen" or decides to say something on purpose? And did Brennan know? Did Booth?

There have been two "what if" stories at the Bitesize_Bones "What if" comment fic meme that fit here:

One asks "What if Booth had been permanently wounded in the fridge explosion in 'Two Bodies in the Lab'?" (S1), and was written in two parts in the comments by [profile] zerodetorres where Booth has an amputation after the explosion.

Another Prompt by [personal profile] biba79 asked "What if Brennan had been blown up instead of Booth in 'Two Bodies in the Lab'?" and results in Brennan having a significant and permanent visual impairment. (Full story not chunked out in comments can be found here.)

It's just I am trying to finish it before posting more, because I already have continuity errors. Doh.

[livejournal.com profile] kestrelct wrote me some happy poly shippiness between Mary, Colin, and Dickon from The Secret Garden, which also fit Festibility. It is "Breakfast in Bed", and in addition to the author's summary, I would add that it shows Colin doing ordinary physical things because he can.

heh, continuity errors are a right royal PITA in fanfic, so I can well and truly sympathise!

Anyhow, with a hearty *phew*, I'm glad you're still working on it, as I'm thoroughly enjoying the story - it's definitely well up to the LMB twists and turns standard :)

This is a devious, devious prompt. I love it (said in her best Azula voice). I love it so much that I'm attempting it, although I'm the last person who should.

Title: Shuttle 1403
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 452
Warnings: Imagined character death, imagined severe injuries.

Jocelyn was half an hour late. McCoy's leg twitched as he watched the clock tick ahead second after second. Two shuttles had docked in that time, their passengers looking all cheery and alive. One guy had run to his rumpled boyfriend with a bouquet of roses. Another woman had dug a pink sehlat toy out of her giant black purse to give to the toddler who had run to her and clung to her leg. It was all too much like a fucking storybook, if it weren't for the fact that Jocelyn was so damn late.

Drumming his fingers on the seat of his chair, he fought back the urge to run to the courtesy desk and check about her shuttle flight for a third time. The last time the attendant, a kid that still had his baby fat and a matching voice that couldn't stop breaking, threatened him with security for making such a damned scene.

Thirty one minutes.

In that time her shuttle could've crashed five times over. If Jocelyn lived through the initial crash, she could've been skewered by a pipe and bleeding out, or limping around on a shattered leg. She wouldn't even be concerned for herself, she'd be trying to help others, using her med school lessons to tourniquet what she could and keep others comfortable. She could die from not giving a damn about herself, so far away from Leonard, who was usually the only one to remind her that she wasn't invincible.

Thirty two minutes.

The shuttle could've stalled just outside of Earth's atmosphere. It could be stuck, running out of the reserve air supply, the engineers becoming more and more lethargic the longer they're immobile. What if Jocelyn was struggling to breathe because she gave her air supply to a little kid, and here he was, sitting around like a useless fool?

Thirty three minutes.

What if they were being held-up by some sort of terrorist, someone sick of the Federation's interference and –

His vision was tunneling, and he couldn't breathe. Damn, damn, damn. He tried to shut his eyes, to focus on something reassuring, digging his fingers into the hard plastic armrests of his chair for grounding. It didn't work. Every time he shut his eyes he imagined Jocelyn in some new, horrible situation. What if –

“Shuttle 1403, now docking.” Leonard's eyes shot open. That was Jocelyn's shuttle. Finally.

McCoy struggled to get his breathing back under control, and used his anxious energy to propel himself forward and towards her gate. The sooner he saw for himself that she was okay, the sooner he could hug her and try to convince her never to ride those damned shuttles ever again.

Wow, this is so perfect. I love how you have so much empathy for McCoy, and it's so easy (for someone like me who suffers from the same issues, anyway) to see what he's going through, but at the same time it's also easy to see how he's going to sound to her in the resulting conversation, and how that could put a major strain on the marriage.

This is sort of like... what I hoped for when I posted the prompt, but also so much more. Thank you so very much!

this is great, just how I imagined it. If only this could have been in the movie!! <3<3 great fic =)
