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: Jhamel (Star Trek: Enterprise), she's not disabled by Aenar standards, so how does she react to spending time in cultures where the majority of people are photon-dependent?

shopfront: Source: Doctor Who. Amy Pond looking up at the sky in confusion/awe. (DW - [Amy] glorious curious confusion)
From: [personal profile] shopfront
Doctor Who, Amy Pond, something where the Doctor's presence in Amy's life doesn't totally undermine the validity of modern mental health diagnosis'. Amy has a mood disorder, and everyone's lack of belief in her story about the Doctor only exacerbated her symptoms at certain vulnerable points in her illness. (Your choice what to focus on, but perhaps look at how Amy deals with her family being embarrassed if she's being 'odd' in public, like when she starts shouting at her wedding.)

This is actually a tiny bit of a longer Sherlock Holmes fic I currently have in the beta process. Is it in accordance with the rules to post a link when the editing is done? (Won't stop me from trying to fill other prompts, of course!)

From: [personal profile] passerine
Two prompts, any fandom:

1) A character acquires a traumatic brain injury over the course of an adventure. NOT played for laughs, not making the character completely incompetent, but causes realistic problems with day-to-day life and a notable change in the character's personality. Bonus points if character is female.

2) Any fandom: realistic portrayal of a character with an invisible disability who provides regular care for a character with a more obviously recognized disability. (Bonus points if the invisible disability is ADD/ADHD and the character being cared for is a parental figure who is easily annoyed by the main character being a flake. Even more bonus points if the person providing the care is not female.)

Firefly: Mal's fight with the Operative in the Big Damn Movie leaves him with nerve damage in one or both legs. He adjusts his life on the ship (maybe less than gracefully), and in jobs, despite Zoe taking the lead in all off-ship work.

OH.

This is such a good idea! I hope someone nabs it.

(It makes me wonder, though. Could he get them as an adult? How difficult would it be if he did get them, seeing as he was prelingually deaf? There's so much to explore with this one.)

From: [personal profile] minxy
Stargate: SG-1, Daniel during Continuum. Optional additional prompts: during the year apart, being unemployed makes him feel useless, a prosthetic leg and cane makes him invisible. Or: how he fights differently when reunited with SG-1 during the events of the movie.

1.) The West Wing: Joey Lucas --- I would love a story about the relationship between Joey and Kenny or between Joey and the Santos Administration (esp. the people that have been brought in new and do not know her).



2.) Firefly: River (post-Serenity) - Even though the voices are (mostly) gone, River discovers that she still have some voices, coming from inside her.

SPN: PTSD. Which leaves the field pretty wide open, doesn't it? But possibly some character or another (Ellen, a Winchester, Bobby, a minor character) having a panic attack at a really inopportune time (tracking a monster through a crowded city?) and a stranger helps them in a sufficiently understated and competent way that their cover isn't blown.

Glee: Puck has used a wheelchair all his life - which changes canon in some major ways, but he and Finn still grew up best friends, just with a pretty different dynamic. Puck/Kurt, where Kurt has a chronic shortage of spoons. Arm porn, please!

Glee: (futurefic) Rachel is in her mdi-twenties and her career on stage is finally hitting its stride ... but she's been getting joint pain, she's having trouble memorizing lines, and she's constantly exhausted. The diagnosis is fibromyalgia. Preferably in the form of emails, text messages, and voice mails between her and former members of her high school glee club.

Bonus for an epilogue in which Rachel has adjusted her goals, gone after them like she does, achieved them.

Naruto: Most of the time, Kakashi only has sight out of one eye. For most shinobi, this would cause forced retirement from field missions. But Kakashi learned to compensate, with the help of his dogs, and then retook his exams. Possibly an AU where Kakashi's nin-dogs also function as service animals.
