Every year, C and I write each other a story for Christmas.* It's really my most treasured gift because it's done very specifically for my love of a fandom, issued from her lovely brain for love of me. And it's really ideal because we have many fandoms in common, and neither of us shy away from a dark story. We are dark, twisty people.
However, last year the prompts really started to get away from us. She's so very good at whipping up these ideas, and it spurs me in kind. I am beginning to believe the prompting is as much fun as the writing:)
We've already started with more this year--I thought I'd post them all here for fun, and for a record. I'll update it as needed--I'm sure there will be plenty more prompts to add as we get closer to Christmas.

*We're exchanging writing prompts four/five times a year now and see how it works out.
a mix of prompts, original fiction and fan fiction - check-in every week with 250 words minimum
due dates: March 7, June 13, September 12,
(possibly Halloween?) and Yuletide
(loose guidelines for C: From Dusk Till Dawn - junkie Seth; "Revision" sequel [Under the Red Hood]; The Avengers [Marvel Movies] - one about Steve; The Avengers [Marvel Movies] - portion of the long story, Doomed to Repeat; possible prompt fic
guidelines for K: prompt fic; prompt fic; portion of Rising Wolf [original, sequel to Beneath the Neon Moon]; original as K Bara; more?)
EDIT: Sept. 2016--we've missed our goals so far this year--life is hard:( We'll give it our best shot for our annual Yuletide exchange, though.

For 2015, we'll do another story in March somehow related to the Xmas 2014 stories we wrote (sequel, prequel, tie-in). In June another story in our same fandom. In September we'll switch fandoms with each other, so she'll have Batman: Under the Red Hood and I'll have Alias Smith and Jones.
March 9, Panic Day - (how appropriate)
June 8, Name Your Poison/Best Friends Day (So sad, no Dead Duck Day deadline for 2014. Some other year)
September 14, National Cream-Filled Donut Day (for personal reasons)
and Yule, of course. Which starts it all over again with new prompts chosen from our list.

Photo prompts for both of us:

From C for me to write:

Alias Smith and Jones
Alias Jones and Smith
They can't outrun the past.

American Horror Story: Coven (season 3)
Marie Laveau and her past run-ins with the coven. They've been sharing New Orleans for a long time, so there has to be some interesting history there.

The Avengers (Marvel movies)

Tony, being the self-destructive type, goes out to clubs and picks up men who abuse him. He comes home from a night out, trying to quietly limp to his bedroom where he can clean up without anyone seeing him, and finds Steve waiting for him.

Batman: Under the Red Hood (2010 animation)
Jason and Dick wanting Bruce's attention. Always.
Sometimes They Come Back
Bruce thinks Jason has crossed the line. He has no idea how far Jason will go. (Or: Jason has a backup plan.)
and sequel What Hurts More
The nights are long with the Joker riding his dreams.
finale What Hurts Most
Batman disappears off the streets of Gotham, Jason's lost his agenda, and Dick is...well, Dick.

Battlestar Galactica (original 1978)
Apollo is the favored son of Commander Adama. He's a leader and the chosen messenger of the Beings of Light. Starbuck is his best friend and wingman. He's also an orphan with no family, a gambler, and a womanizer. Apollo cares about him - he does - but he just can't help but lord it over him sometimes, remind him who's in charge and why. It just makes him so malleable.

Black Sails
Flint and Vane in a lifeboat together.  No land or other boats in sight. Food and water are running low.

The Borgias (Showtime)
Cesare and Micheletto, in the rain after disposing of the body of Ursula's husband (I'm sure he had a name, but damned if I can remember it).

Blood Ties (the TV series, based on Tanya Huff's books) - see it on youtube
Some time after Henry leaves Toronto, he, Vicki, and Mike all wake up in a brightly lit white room together. The room has a king size mattress on the floor and a small bathroom with a toilet, a cubicle shower, and no door. Twice a day, food is given to Vicki and Mike through a slot that opens near the floor. Nothing is provided for Henry. Do whatever you want with it : )

Hank dreaming about Lew again.

Dante's Cove - see it on youtube
Save Toby and get him back together with Kevin. I don't care if Adam gets out of the mirror/other dimension or not. Adam - yuck.

The Dark Secret of Harvest Home (1978 miniseries) - see it on youtube
Justin's ghost talks to Ned.

If Mine Eyes Offend Thee

Dexter/Brian. Creepy, bloody, murdery incest!

Due South
Fraser as a Dexter-like serial killer. Loving descriptions of Ray Kowalski's hair and wiry body a necessity.

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series

Santanico isn't what Richie thought. She's not salvation in a pretty, fuckable package. She's a girl who's been kept a slave in a dark temple for hundreds of years and she's angry about it. Angry enough to take it out on the whole world now that she's finally back in it. She doesn't direct her anger at Richie, but she won't listen to him either. Every time he tries to speak up, she crawls inside his brain and... well, he thought it was bad before, but there's no way out of this. No beautiful woman at the end of the journey to lead him out of the hell in his own head.
He really wishes Seth would come back.

The Fast and the Furious
(Brian/Dom) Sneaking around behind the girls' backs in a dirty cheap motel.

Frankenstein: the True Story (1973) - see it on youtube
Anything goes here, but I wouldn't mind having some sort of explanation of why the creature never got a name. And it would be nice if Prima were in there somewhere.
A Perfect Form (Illuminated)

Friday the 13th (2009) crossover with My Bloody Valentine (2009)
Clay/Tom--(from our conversation)
Who wants Clay naked and splayed out/crucified on a tower? (our photo referenced in story)
I think maybe Jason does. Perhaps he's trying to lure Tom out of hiding? They came after him? What if harry comes out, finds him, starts to do him, clay is calling out, tom, NO.
Or maybe Harry left him there as a present for Tom?
Or maybe someone else altogether?

I like Jason luring tom out after they came after him, or Harry doing it,, maybe Harry left him there for JASON even.

Burning From the Inside
Clay's broken. He's still going after Jason. And then he meets Tom Hanniger, who wants to help.

The Good Wife (sixth season spoilery)
(In the sixth season premiere, Cary goes to jail because he supposedly told Leonard Bishop's men how to evade arrest while transporting 1.3 million dollars worth of heroine.)
I would like Cary to be the cell block bicycle - everybody gets a ride.
Bonus points if Bishop had him set up to break him in.

Hercules: The Legendary Journeys
500 word minimum, Herc/Iolaus with "insatiable" as a prompt. Herc wearing that brown suede shirt he wore in Amazon Women, so the early years -  not the yellow shirt he wore all through the series.
Curses and Brown Suede Shirts
Hercules and Iolaus. The early days of the journey.

James Bond (Daniel Craig movies)
Getting fucked (m/m)
The Queen's Boy

One of the (many) reasons that Raylen couldn't make peace with Arlo was because when he was fifteen, Arlo caught him in the middle of a blackberry patch with Garner Pruitt doing things he shouldn't have been doing with another boy. Garner is all grown up now with a grown up drug habit and he just traded Boyd a story about Raylen's past for a quick hit.

1. Nobody forgets that Davin's the newest crew member--even when he's in bed with Dutch and Johnny. Davin doesn't mind.
2. Both the boys are captured and tortured and Dutch gets them back - she's EXCELLENT at rescuing them, but then they're all brokeny and that she doesn't know how to fix.

Legend of the Seeker - see it on youtube
Richard got away from Denna, but he can't stop craving the punishment.

The Losers (movie)
As you said when we watched it together, there's nobody in there you can't slash. I don't care who the couple (or moresome - don't let me stifle your creativity) is, just something slashy with sex and violence.

Penny Dreadful
Malcolm/Ethan/Victor--rattling around in Malcolm's big old house together

Starsky and Hutch
The boys suffering together, kidnapped or trapped or whatever.

One if the brothers works up the courage to try a glory hole and gets the blowjob of a lifetime. He doesn't know his brother is the one on the other side.

torture porn

Like Always
spoilers for Season 8 and the finale in particular - it takes place right after. Much hurting-ness.

The Walking Dead
I just want sweaty, dirty, violent men taking out their frustrations on each other. You know. Sechshually.

The Wolves of Kromer (1998 movie) - clips at youtube - I don't think the whole movie is up?
How Gabriel and Seth meet.

Witchblade (the TV show)
Sarah and Danny, friendship. Partners and besties.

Wynnona Earp
Wynnona and Doc HAVE to fuck Dolls.

From me for C to write:

Alias Smith and Jones

I remember we talked about a western story one time, you gave me a prompt. Think it might have been for original fiction? Or ASJ, I can't remember. Anyway I'll embellish here: They're on the run, separated. One of the guys is camping on the outskirts of the desert by himself. He's miserable, exhausted. And his partner comes to comfort him during the night.

Later we find out his partner didn't make it. (You can hide that last sentence if you list the prompt and don't want to spoil it when you post it)

Rendezvous in a Bedroll
and sequel Snowbound
Heyes likes snow.

Alien (1979)
1. Any.
2. Slash anyone together, m/m or f/f, except for Ash. I do not care for him, but otherwise find all the characters more or less engaging. (Though I really like both Ripley and Dallas, I don't have much interest in a pairing between them.)
3. Give Lambert a more heroic ending. Though I think she actually died in character, I'd like to see her find some defiance in the face of her own death.
4. More back story/origin story on the alien race. More back story on any of the characters.

Batman: Under the Red Hood (2010 animation)
Nightwing/Jason Todd willingly, or under someone's nefarious influence;) Dubcon is good. Can also be threeway with Batman or Tim Drake.

Jason comes back with a new plan.

Black Sails
Vane knows what
Flint is--conniver, deceiver, labyrinthine mind working overtime to make fools of everyone on the island. But oh, he's such a pretty beggar when he wants Charles' cock.  

The Borgias (Showtime)
1. Cesare forgets himself with Lucrezia (for a moment, for longer) at the Banquet of Chestnuts. Or vice versa.
2. Micheletto/Cesare - Micheletto leaves again. In the year(s) after, Cesare becomes crueler and more despairing. And still he waits for Micheletto's return.

The Dark Secret of Harvest Home (1978 miniseries) - see it on youtube (also a novel by Thomas Tryon)
Worthy Pettinger isn't burned to death as a scarecrow. The widow has other ways (or people: like Kate Constantine, or Tamar, or Justin, or maybe just the widow herself) to "persuade" him he's wrong.
Your choice as to what the persuasion involves. Something rough, I'm hoping.

Dexter/his brother, Brian.

Dracula (the novel)
1. I love the female vampires who attacked Harker in the castle. Tell me about another of their victims.

2. An AU of or featuring a scene from the book. In other words, from your brain, however you like:) Modernize it, put it in another location.

The Fast and the Furious (and sequels)
Brian/Dom, bottom!Brian, naked and hurt and laid out on the hood of a car for the Beast to play with. Cue sweaty, hurty sex, and feel free to add comfort to the mix if it feels right.

Frankenstein (the novel)

Friday the 13th (2009) crossover with My Bloody Valentine (2009)
Tom/Clay - any

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series
AU first season or right after Richie's sprung Seth from jail.
Sure, Richie's brilliant, but Seth is scared (no, not scared, because Seth will fix it—somehow—) that his brother just might be batshit insane.
But sometimes—when the batshit's gone too deep and Seth can't unsee it, or it's the middle of the night and he can't shut out the thought: he could have that life, somewhere on his own. Scoring big and living high with a beautiful girl.
Then the brothers get in a fix and there's only two options left—Seth can save himself and leave Richie, or they both go down together—what's Seth gonna do?

AU,  S1 and S2 (timeline mangled). At this point we only know Richie's off his rocker, seeing and hearing things.

Seth's a junkie. The stress of trying to handle Richie's weirdness and visions and keep him from exploding has left Seth with a very large monkey on his back.
Richie comes back to their hotel room and finds Seth blissed to the max, stretched out on the bed and unable to help himself. He stands over Seth's prone body, the visions/voice urging him to finally, finally touch Seth like he's wanted since forever.
And after all, the voice tells him, oh so low and sweet--if his brother doesn't like it, Richie could always just kill him and dig out his eyeballs.

An AU in which something much older and more powerful than Santanico finds Richie first.

The Hunger (1983 movie rather than the novel by Whitley Strieber)
1. John and Miriam in the happy days: on a hunt.
2. John comes back. He makes Miriam pay.

Interview With the Vampire (the novel by Anne Rice)
1. Louis and Claudia kill Lestat. What if Louis can't stand what's been done and goes after Lestat in the swamp, lets him drink, holes up with him, possibly fucks him with Lestat not so powerful anymore?
2. Lestat/Louis - something from that scene where Lestat goes and gets the prostitutes and kills them in front of Louis, maybe you could do a thing where Lestat screws Louis, starts out by forcing him but he ends up surrendering to it.

Something about Louis and Claudia in the years after Lestat is "dead"
Vienna in Winter
Louis tells a part of his story he hasn't told before.

Planet of the Apes (TV series)
Pete's in danger. He may be dying. It's Alan's fault.

Preacher (AMC)
1. You're a vampire. A demonic angel (or angelic demon, if you prefer) inside your best friend's body commands you to suck him off. What to do?
Drop to your knees, naturally. And hope your razor sharp fangs don't knick Jesse's cock--or worse.
2. Roadtrippin' threesome: Tulip, Jesse, Cassidy

Salem's Lot - the movie (the first version in 1979 with David Soul)
After it's over, and Ben's killed Susan the vampire, and Ben and Mark are running - what might happen, how will Ben deal with/save Mark when vampires grab Mark and use him for bait to get Ben to come to them?

Taking the Yoke

Starsky & Hutch (original series)
I know I've written something similar to this in the past, but I cannot resist asking for another version of: "The Fix" (AU)
Hutch is recovering from his heroin addition. He's miserable, striking out, unstable, desperate. (Let's say he no longer wants to like, throw up, though). Dirty, bad, wrong Starsky-comforts-distracts-him-sex.
Starsky can feel guilty about it if you like, but he's also very very into it, almost uncontrollably.

1. Sam/Dean, Sam badly, badly hurt or tortured, maybe with his pretty throat featured/mentioned, maybe tied back so he's all vulnerable and hurting and fucked over when Dean finds him, and/or he's been bespelled with a sex spell so it's fuck or die but he's so ASHAMED, and Dean? Dean is angry for Sam, protective, sweet as he can manage to show; and vengeful as hell about it all.

2. Sam's taken by other hunters, kind of the same situation with the hunters in season five, "Free to Be You and Me," where they found out who'd brought on the end of the world and tried to feed him blood to get him to kill the demons in town- only maybe there's a big group of them that come after him this time, egging him on, teasing, hitting and hurting him while he's bound tight. Like Aslan when he's sacrificed:) Until Sam's out of his head, lots of victimization, hitting, even touching or abusing ... it's all good. I saw a request at the storyfinders journal and I like what they added to this idea, so I'll c & p here: "Are there any fics where they managed it? Where, willing or otherwise, Sam was used as a weapon against demons and his powers developed because the hunters kept juicing him and shoving him in dangerous situations beyond mere mental exorcisms?"
3. Dean completely incapacitates Sam in bed, has him screaming for more - HE HAS TENTACLES. I know not how. 

Werewolf By Night ((1972 comics)
1. You haven't even read this but maybe you will sometime, and I want to prompt it, because WEREWOLF BY NIGHT. Jack's forced to watch Lisa (his sister) be tortured
2. Jack torture, with attention paid to ripped clothes and rippling muscles, struggling and helplessness.

Wynonna Earp
Doc is gravely injured--to the point of death, if that were possible. Wynonna fucks him anyway. (featuring a morally deficient Wynonna, taking what she wants)


Additional stories we've written for each other - no prompts

Alias Smith and Jones
You Go Your Way and I'll Go Mine (Heyes/Curry)
Post "Something to Get Hung About," the boys separate and bad things happen.

The Avengers (Marvel Movies)
A Dungeon As Dark As One's Heart (Steve/Tony)
Loki captures Tony and gives him what he wants.

The Avengers (Marvel Movies)
Eidolon (Steve/Tony)
Tony yanked hard at the chains, producing noise but no useful result. He didn’t know how long he’d been hanging there, naked and blindfolded, but it felt like a long time. His arms and shoulders were aching and his calves were cramping. It was bad enough that he was hanging in the dark like a side of beef, but they'd also drugged him. They must have because he was hard and aching and completely unable to get any relief. As torture went, it was pretty damn effective.

Frankenstein (novel)
An AU of Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley--a Halloween story

Rising Wolf (Chapter 1 - more to come)
Part 2 of Beneath the Neon Moon (original fiction)
By all rights Zach should be dead, with Mal forced into the wolf pack that turned him into a monster. But that's not what happens.
Mal is a werewolf, but he's not part of the pack. He and Zach are alive and swearing vengeance on the wolves that started them down this road. All they have to do is learn to control Mal's rising wolf, all the while fighting off a seemingly invincible pack determined to claim Mal as their own. Oh, and stay together in the face of Mal's guilt and fear for Zach's safety.

Okay, I'm really only into Starsky and Hutch (although the Supernatural torture porn pings on my radar), and I, too, enjoy a little rendezvous in the dark side. Both the S&H prompts are EXACTLY what I like, and if you have links to those, I would be overjoyed. OVERJOYED, I TELL YOU!!

Edit: Or are there not links. You mean, they were not filled?! Oh, be still my heart! Okay, well, then if you have links to other stories similar to these...

From: [identity profile] kassidy62.livejournal.com
aw, I'm sorry we don't have the stories you were looking forward to. I can sympathize with that! The only ones that are filled are at the bottom of the listing, and they do have links. Seven of them I think? None you'd like except maybe that ping you mentioned for SPN porn, I did fill that, a short, AU story set at the end of season 7 right after the trials.

I will be SURE to post an LJ entry if we fill the S&H prompts. They sound good, don't they? I love when a fannish friend likes the darker stories with us:)

You know, I used to be a one-fandom person - hard to believe now, and I'd place a lot of that at Cass's door. She's very open to new stuff and I am moreso now because of her. I don't actively participate in many fandoms (and not often anymore) - I have a core set of ASJ, S&H, SPN and POTA. I like those other shows/books/movies/comics and read fan fiction in them occasionally.
Are you a one-fandom kind of person?

Date: 2014-09-06 06:49 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] duluthgirl.livejournal.com
Yeah, I guess I am pretty much wholly S&H. I don't watch many other shows, and I don't even have cable, so can't see a lot of them! :D I've looked around some of the other fandoms, like ASJ, and SPN, but I just don't feel the connection to the characters like I do they boys. They're special to me. :)

Date: 2014-09-06 06:39 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] tipitiwitchet.livejournal.com
They look pretty all laid out like that, don't they?

I'm reminded of this quote from the Me and Thee list: "Cassandra and Kassidy both write quite dark stories, not to everyone's tastes."

Thank goodness we have each other : ) *mwah*

Date: 2014-09-06 06:51 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] kassidy62.livejournal.com
I think they look quite beautiful! Yes, we are dark, and we like dark. In fact I remember venturing into SPN with a specific goal of finding dark, since S&H wasn't giving me that.

That quote is very true. Wasn't someone scarred so much after my zine they didn't read fiction for a good long while? I don't mind saying that I don't understand that, or the fact that whoever it was kept reading when the experience was obviously traumatic.

Date: 2014-09-06 06:56 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] tipitiwitchet.livejournal.com
Oh yes, that quote came from the same conversation. This was what was said (forgive me if the formatting is off - copy/paste from Yahoo Groups is spotty at best): "Truth to tell the zine that stopped my Starsky & Hutch reading in its tracks and sent me off to read outside the fandom (and I have had trouble getting back to it ever since) is Blood and Destiny. The bookmark is still on page 61."

I get to see you soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Date: 2014-09-06 07:32 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] kassidy62.livejournal.com
I would have respectfully disagreed that it was the zine that caused her to stop reading S&H. A person who decides to read a zine which warns there ARE no warnings has made a decision, and moreso if they know the act of doing so could harm their reading habits irreparably. At the very least, they could chose to stop reading when a story begins to bother rather than waiting until the point where they feel scarred by the thing.

I admit that it's hard to feel empathy when the issue is described in what sounds to me like hysteria and finger-pointing, and accusations that the zine has ruined their S&H fannish reading altogether, when they could have put the book down.

From: [identity profile] tipitiwitchet.livejournal.com
I'm pretty sure it was my stories what stopped her. Page 61 is the story after my two and it's one of the stories by Salieri - no one would stop reading anything because of Sal!

Date: 2014-09-06 07:37 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] kassidy62.livejournal.com
I don't care if it was yours or Sal's or any author in the zine, I stand by it and by the author. I love your stuff and would always publish it with pride, if I were to put out any more zines.

Date: 2014-09-06 07:59 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] tipitiwitchet.livejournal.com
Of course you would stand by any author in the zine. That's who you are.

It's a gorgeous zine (I pulled it back out just to look at it). I'm completely bewildered that anyone would object to it so strongly. There's a wide range of story types in it, so I could see that not every story would please everyone, but to say it ran you out of the fandom? I just don't get it.

Date: 2014-09-06 08:13 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] kassidy62.livejournal.com
There are good, solid reasons behind my standing behind the authors. They're fucking awesome:)

I had to edit my reply above, I couldn't help it. The way the person worded their comment is off-putting. There's no conscious culpability for the welfare of self, but instead it's worded in a way that feels like I flung something armed with teeth and claws out into the world to hurt people. But I'm a fan, too, and I have preferences and issues and wants that all come out in the fiction, and that mean something important to me and to others. Supposedly there's room for all of us.

In conclusion: books, bothering people, who knew?

But I also wanted to add two things: I need to clean some! I don't want to! I want to see you! But it was fucking hot outside at the soccer game today and we were there around 2 hours. blech. so I'm getting moving and will write you asap.

Date: 2014-09-06 08:33 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] tipitiwitchet.livejournal.com
My god, but that's beautifully worded. You should write!

Seriously, make me some words!!!!!!!!!!

I want to see you, too!!! I'll be ready : )
