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!

Pratchett, Monstrous Regiment: Polly has a wound which is bloody but not fatal. Mal is out of coffee, and has been for five days. Polly needs Mal to bandage her wound (and rebandage it over the next three days while Mal carries bloody!Polly to safety) and to keep watch; Mal needs Polly to keep her, if not grounded, then attached to the ground via a sturdy rope. I really doubt either of them would be in the mood for sex, but possibly established relationship.

I'm trying to think of something for the Lancre witches ...

It always bothered me that Ivan's claustrophobia was dismissed so casually, by both Miles and the author. Given the level of medical therapy available in that universe, it seems like Ivan either didn't avail himself of any medical help, or his phobia was so severe that therapy could only help somewhat.

Part of me hopes someone will write Tina from Glee as an overt stutterer turned covert who decided to pretend she never stuttered at all just out of revenge. But really, so so many characters could work with this, and I think it would be awesome to see some really extroverted not-shy-or-visibly-anxious character written as a stutterer. Break those stereotypes! \o/

DC Comics, Roy Harper, the aftermath of losing his arm, dealt with in a realistic way as opposed to the suck we got in the comics.

(Preferably an AU with Lian NOT dying, because that way the focus can be on Roy and his adjustment to the loss of his arm, as opposed to a roaring rampage of revenge mostly focused on his daughter.)

I think it's very possible that he was being a Barrayaran man about it, and then he confided in his best friend ... who was also a Barrayaran man about it instead of being all "oh dear! that's a problem, let's fix it".

Interesting. Thanks for the link.

First time I've seen a fic about a Super with a spinal cord injury. I've actually long wanted to take a shot at writing something like that (although the focus of my story was likely going to be Kara Zor-El, from the comics). It looks like a good story, but the "miracle cure" element does seem to be handled kind of disappointingly.

This fest might be the motivation I need to finally do the research needed and start working on it.

I'm not sure how it would happen, but my first thought was a diving accident while she's on a red sun planet. Something sort of mundane that could happen to real people as opposed to a big superhero battle.

*nodnod* I'd really like to read an exploration of the mundane there, too (even if it might be easier with that particular character to use magic as the cause).

Yeah, when I'm writing about disabilities, I like to keep it somewhat grounded - for the fandom, at least. I'm thinking either a red sun planet, or some random kryptonite lurking at the bottom of a lake that she jumps into.

I like the randomness factor. 99.9% of the time nothing can touch her, but in that .1% of the time, she managed to break her neck and now she might be paralyzed for life. It would be very interesting to explore her initial frustration and anger over this twist of fate.

I tend to be a Cassie/Kara shipper (your icon gave me glee), so I'd likely work that in, but more as background. I'm definitely going to start sketching this out and see where it goes. :)
