So here we go, folks, prompt comm! 

We’ll be doing four prompts a month (at least for now), and here’s how we’ll pick them…

All the prompts are going to be dropped into a theoretical bucket, where either Kouri or I will select one randomly. In the beginning (or at least until be have a good stockpile), we’ll just let you guys throw prompts at us. Later on when we have a nice stack, we’ll limit things to a monthly call. That way we can keep track of things. (It would be really humiliating if we were crushed under an avalanche of prompts. I mean, can you imagine it? "How'd they die, officer?" "The internet, it just . . . crushed them." Anyway . . .) Once we do that, we'll choose two from the monthly call, and the rest will go into the larger bucket, where we will pick two more. 

We won't be using any prompts twice, so there will be a list available of the prompts we've already gotten.  It'll be posted with every prompt call, along with the list of available characters.

On to how we decide which characters respond to the prompts. When you submit a prompt, let us know who you want to answer it. You can give us a list if you want, though we don't promise more than one character will reply. If you're really wanting one certain character to answer it, just enter it with that one character. We will do our best to have your top choice respond, though on occasion you'll have to give us some slack because these are muses and sometimes they can just be bitches. 

Don't worry! This isn't as complicated as it sounds. Your only job is really to throw prompts at us on this entry, and then whenever we do a prompt call. We'll take care of the rest.

Here's the list of muses that are willing to answer prompts. Other characters may be added at a later time, at which point we'll post a little announcement in the prompt call. This really isn't negotiable, however, because muses are tricky beasts and there are some that we just don't think will want to answer prompts. Or, in the case of, say, Shea/Mal/Kiran, couldn't be interrupted from all the sex they're having long enough to do so.

These characters all have their own journals, because a) we have way too much free time, b) we were having a bitching time trying to be creative, and c) it'll make the posting on the comm a little less confusing. (If you're wondering about the bizarre LJ usernames we came up for these people, feel free to ask in the comments.) All posts will be tagged with the character's name, so if you're looking for all the prompts Benjamin has answered, you can just go to that tag.

Yes, we know some of those characters are relatively new, and Variance isn't actually available to the entire friend's list, but there you have it: a list of muses and their crazy, crazy journals. Some of them have bios and stuff but a lot don't, because if we'd waited to get all that finished, we never would have opened the commt. If you see a character without an icon, that means we need fanart for them. =D

Other than all that, the rules are obvious. No flaming, be kind, rewind, blah blah blah. Kouri will be proofreading Karasu's posts, but not any replies to comments, so the first person who makes fun of Karasu's dyslexic spelling will be roasted on a spit as a warning to others. Yes, the characters will reply to comments. Possibly not even the character you thought would.

We've posted a couple prompt replies on the comm already just so y'all can get an idea of what you're in for. So, prompt away! Nothing is forbidden! And all that.

A prompt for Bryce, to make the Drake Alumni Foundation proud. *cough*
(I should probably be shot for how little life I've had today, but . . . )

This sounds like, well, way too much fun, actually. ^^;; And, uh, I have a prompt (and by prompt, I mean question, which I was actually asked on a scholarship application a while back). For basically whoever wants to answer it, but specifically Bryce. ^_^ (I've actually always wondered this for his character.) The prompt is thus:

What one historical figure, living or deceased, do you respect and emulate above all others? Or, if "one" is too small a number, just an idea or passion that has always caught you as particularly noble or worthy?

Re: A prompt for Bryce, to make the Drake Alumni Foundation proud. *cough*
(MUCH later clarification for Bryce: other than Gabriel. Like, a world-known historical figure. ^^;;; Totally slipped my mind.)

Holy CRAP, man. That's a LOT of damn journals. D8

Also, what's this? Varience? I DEMAND ACCESS. In a totally non-threatening manner, though. Totally.


*shot dead*

Oh. And I forgot. Shatani's journal is going to get you watched by no less than three federal agents.

*needs a hobby* -_-
Shizshiz_lestat on February 8th, 2007 11:51 am (UTC)
lol That's exactly what I was thinking (about the federal agents watching, not the hobby ;p)
knkfics: Shataniknkfics on February 8th, 2007 03:07 pm (UTC)
Demanding access, so not going to get you anywhere. We're only letting, like, 8 people read it. Sorry.

And yeah, I made that comment about Shatani, too. We'll have to have him do some gay, gay prompt at some point just to make the federal agencies afraid of us or something.

Would begging help?

Kira Seyvah: nittakamaitachistraycat_cayra on February 9th, 2007 01:31 am (UTC)
Damn. Then I guess oil-on-canvas cover art for your books wouldn't help either.
(No, that's no attempt of bribery, just something I have been thinking about lately, but was to lazy/busy to try. Probably won't happen anyway.)
Guess we'll have to wait until it gets published. Mou.
pythia_delphiepythia_delphie on February 8th, 2007 08:56 am (UTC)
Yay Nicky got his own journal. *hopsaroundmerrily*

My prompt for Nicky or Alec(uhoh): "What would you do if you were almighty?"

ahem..I'll go back to work now. *waves*
Shizshiz_lestat on February 8th, 2007 11:52 am (UTC)
This sounds FUN! I'm still laughing at some of the LJ names
Kira Seyvah: mikiwonderstraycat_cayra on February 8th, 2007 04:36 pm (UTC)
stupid prompts are better than no prompts <3
*laughing about some of the userinfos*

Hm...what about...snow? 'Cause it's snowing like crazy here and the 'snowballs' interest in Jiahns userinfo made be giggle.

Everyone, talk about snow.

FIG, FS, CB, FtS would be preferred, but I'll take what I'll get~

Haha, my laptop works again! I have so many updates to catch up on! And I'm going to start uploading my fanart now, before something else breaks and I have to wait another month. *facepalm of computer trouble pain* ^^;;

Anyway, prompt for no one in particular: what is the most cracktastic dream you can ever remember having?

I love the usernames, by the way. XD Although Edmund's freaks me out a little and now I have "Pretty When You Cry" going through my head...o_O
Lizpyrrhical on February 8th, 2007 08:43 pm (UTC)
. . . VAST is love. Like, cracktastic, addictive, CRAZY love. All over the place. *cough*

Hiki-chanhiki_chan on February 8th, 2007 06:37 pm (UTC)
For either Liam or Alec
Something about your bfriend that totally turns you on - but it has to be something out of the ordinary, something "weird" only you would think is totally hot :D

I looooooooooooove Aiden's LJ account name. Oh god. Too good.

Squealing fangirl noises and a prompt
First off, OMG prompt community. Yay! I adore the journals, and how they are actually customized to the characters. Next a prompt. When KnKFics life gives you lemons... Preferably answered by Rylee or Mika, because I fangirl them liek whoa.
trikachan on February 9th, 2007 01:36 am (UTC)
This is entirely, way too much fun. XD

First off, you guys have way totally too much time on your hands. That is some major interweb lovin' - but never the less! Fun shall be had by all! :D

I am in love with Skyler's LJ "goodbyeyousuck" and Jade's "Can'taffordme" I died of laughter, haha

Prompt time! I have two, okay? Haha. Anyway, this one's for anyone who's got an answer:

What situation would you say the following: ‘I’d rather be smeared with cat food and dropped naked into a tank of piranhas with nothing to protect my modesty but a smoked ham.’

And this prompt is for Nicky, because he's literary, and he will hopefully know where this quote comes from (it's a great book XD) and would have an interesting response to it:

"Because there was nowhere to go but everywhere."

Ready GO!

Oh dear, Aiden's LJ name just killed me dead, because it fits so well.
Since, I'm on my foodie binge now, my prompt/question would be -If you were to host a cracked out dinner party( like mad hatter w. less tea) who would be the disreputable guests( literary or real) and what would you serve?

obviously some characters like Ethan and Nicky would have more specific answers but i'll take anyone's response.
