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!

Vorkosigan universe; in canon Ivan told Miles that he had claustrophobia due to events in Brothers in Arms. It was brushed aside and never mentioned again. I'd like to see the issue addressed - how does Ivan cope? How debilitating is the phobia? How does he cope with his cousin's apparent complete disregard for the phobia?

Young Avengers: Kate attains a high-level spinal cord injury in a fight. When she returns home after rehab, her teammates are all too willing to jump in and help her whenever they see her struggling with something. After getting annoyed with this, she makes it clear that she needs to practice doing as many things independently as possible, and she'll let them know if she needs help.

(Bonus if Kate is in a canon or non-canon relationship at the time of the injury, and they figure out the sexytimes part together.)

From: [personal profile] littlebutfierce
Ookiku Furikabutte: Mihashi. Something that takes what I've always read as his canonical anxiety seriously. In other words, it's not played for laughs or as merely another plot twist that prevents he & Abe from getting together (oh ha ha, they still can't manage a conversation, etc).

Avatar: The Last Airbender (spoilers for the series finale) (skip) I'd really love an Azula story that takes place after the finale and takes mental illness seriously. I don't know exactly what I'm looking for, but I'm thinking about this story in contrast to the two common types of stories that I've seen, where she's often in the background and is either instantly perfectly better (to be a threat) or is permanently institutionalized because she will never be able to do anything again (to make other people sad).

Is it a bit too "Sneakers" to want Hardison the Blind Hacker? I hope not, because that confrontation seen between Hardison and Xaos could be pretty awesome, and I do wonder how it would change some of his cons.

Here's a link to read it online and here's a link to download it. You need to register for the second site, but it's free and painless. Also, now I'm thinking about it, it's been a while since I read so I don't how it is wrt to ablism but I do remember it being very realistic. I cried about every other chapter after the first two volumes.

Self-injury, any character, any fandom --either the addictive qualities or as part of body dysmorphia, rather than simple angst fodder or fetish fuel.

Bonus points for: it's not "just a phase" or "cry for help"; a method other than cutting.
