Welcome to the Insanity Round!

In case you're new to the comm, this is just a day of the week where we give you ten prompts, and you pick one to write a drabble on and post it in the comments! (Artwork is welcome too!)

If you'd like to track the activity on today's post, just click on the "track this" link at the bottom.

So read the prompts, write a story, submit a prompt! But most of all, have fun!

[Guidelines]1) Aim for about 100 words. Longer or shorter is okay, just try to keep it in one comment. (note: this is more to give you a guideline than anything. Your drabble can be as long as you want--but we're not looking for a multi-chapter fic here!)

2) Post your drabble as a reply to the comment the prompt is from.

3) Put the prompt you used as the subject. If you just want to comment on something, leave the subject line blank. This will make it easier to navigate once the threads start collapsing.

4) If posting an entry with NSFW content, please warn in subject line and the first line of the fic.

5) After writing your drabble, write down three or more prompts of your own at the end of each reply.

6) Prompts should generally be short, no more than a sentence. Prompts may include characters and/or pairings. In that case, try to also include some word prompt (i.e. Kasumi/Thane, sporks), unless you feel your configuration of characters is exotic enough to be inspiring on its own.


7) The same prompts may be filled multiple times. By the same person, even, if inspiration strikes. No need to hold back!


SPOILER WARNING: Mass Effect 3 is here! As it’s been out for over three months now (and no one seems to be using spoiler tags reliably, anyway :), the fills may include ME3 spoilers. Read at your own risk!


1. Dirty little secret
2. Whispers in the dark
3. On the wings of fallen angels
4. I feel like hell
5. Addicted
6. The need you bury deep
7. Always something
8. Get back to work
9. Clouds in the sky
10. These are the days that last forever

I started ME_Challenge to fill a creative void in my life. I kept coming up with little story ideas while playing the games, but couldn't quite always manage the motivation to write them down. I started looking for fic communities, hoping to find some place to let the muse play, but there wasn't one. So that's how I created this community, way back in 2010, and I've had so much fun with it ever since.

But I knew this day was coming; when ME3 would be over, when my attention would inevitably turn more toward other things. That is why as of today, I am stepping down from co-mod of ME_Challenge. tersa has kindly agreed to take my place and popehippo will continue on as co-mod.

I'm not leaving fandom or even leaving this community, but I am scaling back a bit. I want to devote more of my creative energy to my original stuff, but I will continue to participate in Insanity Round when I can.

Thank you everyone for the good times and the fics that made me laugh, think, and sometimes even cry. ♥

So you might have noticed a community theme change today. I was fiddling with the theme to see if I could get subject lines back on our collapsed threads, but when that didn't work, I tried to go back to the usual theme... and it messed up. So here's a temporary placeholder theme until I have time to fix it after work.

If anyone has any knowledge of how to bring subject lines back in a Custom CSS journal, let me know! :/

Thanks.

EDIT: Insanity Round will be posted tomorrow for sure. Until then, if you need a mini-round to let off some creative steam, a few intrepid members posted some prompts in the thread below.
