After two and half years, I've finally had an idea for another fic challenge. So here it is.

50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.


It works like so:

I'm leaving a list of 50+ prompts here, ways (or reasons) to leave your lover. If one of them strikes your fancy, claim it, and I'll take it off the list. You have until a month after you claim your prompt to post your fic, after which, if the fic isn't posted and you haven't let me know it will be late, I'll release the prompt again.

The challenge is multifandom, so you can write for any pairing you like. The only stipulations are that at some point in the story, someone must leave their lover, and all fics must be at least 500 words. There is no maximum length. Feel free to write a novel if you so desire.

Once you've finished your fic, leave a comment here with the link to where it can be found. Once people start finishing their fics, I'll post a master list to be updated as more fics are posted. If you finish one story, and you'd like to claim another prompt, feel free! But you may only have one open prompt at a time.

The challenge will continue until we have 50 stories.

Do I have to say now what fandom?

[identity profile] skidmo-fic.livejournal.com 2010-04-23 06:10 pm (UTC)(link)
Done!

You don't have to say what fandom until the story is submitted! I'm easy that way. ;)

[identity profile] semisweetsoul.livejournal.com 2010-04-23 07:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Hello! I don't know where I saw this but here I am! :)

How about

for the children
because you're/they're not interested in sex
because you're/they're diagnosed with an incurable disease
because you/they have won the lottery
because you/they're sent to jail
because you don't remember them/they don't remember you (hint: amnesia fic)
because of an addiction
because of an obsession
because of an undying love for a sports team/a singer/ a band...
because they're full of themselves!

there that's done! Now, can I have the mix tape, which is 34? Thank you!
