Festibility: Prompt Post

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.

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!

I've been really tired lately, but the doctor says that I'm fine. Must be stress due to my ~*~great new role~*~ (see my last six blogs for details). I'm putting my Myspace videos on a hiatus for a while so I can adjust to my new schedule. Don't worry, I won't be gone for too long. In the meantime (view more)

You know there isn't any medical evidence that music helps, right? You shouldn't... get your hopes up so soon.



subject: re: re: Google Group Invite: "fighting fibro with music"

Well, I'll add it to the list of diseases I'll cure when I'm famous. But I don't think they're going to rename it to Berry's disease. Maybe I'll get Abram's cure, though.

[personal profile] bliumchik 2010-07-15 06:38 am (UTC)(link)
There is ragged wallpaper beneath his fingers. Scott slides his hand across it till his fingers bump an outcrop of smooth painted wood. Right. Windowsill. He gropes for the catch on the window, silently making yet another mental note to ask Kurt to give him a proper sitrep when he drops Scott off in random places. Kurt's pretty good about it in relation to the battle - right now, for instance, he knows Hank is fighting Toad and the Blob across a pile of rubble from him, Bobby and Rogue teaming up on Pyro on the west side of the street and Jean squaring off against Phantazia between them.

But no, Scott grumbles to himself as the window finally slides open, "Fourth floor, double-hung windows" is apparently too much to ask.

He orients himself towards the battle and sends a query Jean's way. The inhuman screeching from somewhere above indicates that Sauron has just arrived in his Pteranodon form (which Scott expected to happen at some point, or he'd be on the roof).

About time, Medusa, Jean sends with a mental smirk. What happened, Nightcrawler took you out for coffee?

He concentrates on picturing his right hand (a hand that feels twenty-three but looks sixteen, in his head, and will always look sixteen) and raises its middle finger.

She giggles (in his head, which is always slightly alarming). Wanna burn holes in this bitch's ass?

Just point and shoot, O Fearless Leader.

Muscles he didn't even know were tense relax in his neck as the familiar tendrils of Jean's power sink into him, feeling his location. Jean, who stood by him when Logan wanted him off the team. Who was the first one to convince him to open his eyes. Who is still the only one he really trusts to make sure anything he incinerates is evil or inanimate. God, he wishes he knew what she looks like.

Gotcha, she says, turning his head down and a few degrees to the right. I'm holding her off for now, we need to rescue Hank. Fire in three!

Scott smiles as he starts counting off - her command voice has improved drastically. She was never comfortable leading the X-Men in the field at such a young age, and he hadn't helped at the start, constantly second-guessing her strategy - it was so frustrating, having the instinct and the confidence of a born leader but being unable to fulfill his potential. He couldn't make split-second decisions when he relied so heavily on an oral report or, at best, a telepathic infodump from Jean or the Professor. And on top of that, guilt and fear, constant fear of killing someone just by looking at them. He'd taken it out on her. He'd taken it out on everyone. He wasn't proud of it.

Still, they worked through it. He eventually settled into "strategic advisor and artillery" with some form of dignity intact. There is still that rising terror when his eyelids quiver, but he tells himself, Jean's got me. And Jean's got him.


Scott opens his eyes.

Star Wars, Republic Commando book series. Something to do with Fi's brain injury--maybe what would have happened if Jusik couldn't help his healing along as much as he did, or how injuries are treated in Mandalorian society, or exploriing Fi's thoughts on the MS (brain injury) sigil on his helmet. The books spend a lot of time on his recovery, but I find I want to know more.

Assuming that's a "my" stuttering, I offer you a stutterer-to-stutterer (or PWS but I can't manage to get that fussed about the language) fistbump! *\o/* There is a reason I'm requesting this, although because I'm not covert it's not as id-tastic as it could be!

Anyway, I hope the information helps! I can also link you to a few stuttering blogs I know of, although I should add that I tend to be a bit radical when it comes to stuttering acceptance and anything I link is probably going to reflect that.

Supernatural: Nobody Bleeds for the Dancer (self-injury & reference to torture & suicide)

[personal profile] alexseanchai 2010-07-15 07:18 pm (UTC)(link)
The gravel of the parking lot of Ben's soccer field isn't all that stable. Dean's weight lands wrong; he goes down hard, taking the skin off both palms and a knee.

Glasses are slippery when they're soapy and wet. Dean drops one and fishes all the shards out of the sink, then washes the blood off his hands. The water stings.

Dean holds a nail in place to drive it into the skeleton of a McMansion and swings the hammer. He misses; the finger's not broken but it's a near thing.

Dean overhears a remark in a bar and strolls over to the speaker and his buddies. "My brother is, as you so politely put it, a cocksucker," Dean informs him. It might not be literally true, Sam didn't go into details about what happened when Brady got stoned while Sam was around, but it doesn't much matter. "In related news, my brother's dead." Then he slams his fist into the jackass's face. Three of the jackasses end up in the hospital and Dean refuses treatment.

Dean was chopping veggies for dinner—got to contribute to Lisa's household somehow—and got distracted remembering Sam chattering about the nutritive properties of zucchini, one of the few times when Sam was a kid that they could afford fresh food to cook and a kitchen to cook it in. There was a bright sharp pain at his fingertip and he was home, the blood and the emptiness as familiar as his own skin, Sam's absence proof that Sam was safe on earth or above it. Lisa made noise, distracting him, but he'd needed the reminder. Hunting on his own would be another way to say suicide and he'd promised Sam he wouldn't, but thirty years with pain and without Sam, he'd done that. He could do that.

That first time, it was accidental.

Stargate Atlantis: Rodney McKay. After "Shrine", Rodney turns out to have some permanent brain damage causing cognitive impairment -- difficulty concentrating, memory loss, emotional issues. He's still just as brilliant as he ever was, and can still do his job, but he and everyone around him have to adjust to the "new" him (while fighting aliens, or whatnot *g*).
