    Default Serebii Plot Nido Exchange-O-Matic


    Serebii Plot Nido Exchange-O-Matic

    (Approved by Dragonfree!)

    So. This was inspired by something my good friend Tangent128 did for an RP community we're both in (he lurks here, but doesn't post much) I felt would be fun to adapt to here. What is it, you may ask? A randomized writing prompt exchange! Give a prompt, get a prompt - but you'll never know whose you'll get until it happens!

    The rules are simple:

    • Every two weeks, interested people submit a simple-but-still-enough-to-build-a-story-around writing prompt with a video-game-esque "achievement name". New people submit a prompt automatically as well - including an extra one to provide a buffer!
    • In return, they will randomly receive someone else's prompt via PM after two weeks have passed.
    • You then do anything from writing a drabble or oneshot around the prompt to working it into an existing story you're writing somehow, with an "Achievement Unlocked" message in a spoiler tag at the end of the post stating which prompt you completed.
    • You may interpret the prompt however you wish so long as it's still technically completed. Feel free to get creative!
    • Since the prompt assignments are secret, post what prompt you've fulfilled once you've done so with a link to the post where it was fulfilled and submit a new one in exchange.
    • Ideally, you will keep a prompt until you complete it, but if you are really stuck or just uncomfortable with the prompt you got, we'll allow a redraw.



    Note prompts should be simple and flexible, but still enough to build a story around in the event the person who gets one doesn't want to modify an existing story to include one. "Have one of your characters order takeout" is simple and could be worked into an existing story if the author really wanted, but probably wouldn't work very well for this overall since it's hard to base an entire story around in case they don't want incorporation, whereas "Have a character (or characters) get lost in a cave" would work pretty well, since it involves an unusual situation that it's pretty easy to build a story around, while remaining very general so that the direction to take it and what to focus on and what characters to involve remains entirely up to the author - and could still be inserted into a story with clever enough writing if the author is willing!

    But get cracking with those prompts, people - remember, you give one (or two to start) to get one!

    Let's kick this off, since I've been wanting to get myself to write one-shots again.

    My prompts:

    Fear Factor
    Someone has to confront their worst fear.

    Reunion
    A trainer meets a Pokémon that they released again.

    Chapter 69: Lies
    The story of an ordinary boy on an impossible quest in a world that isn't as black and white as he always thought it was.
    (rough draft of the remaining chapters finished for NaNoWriMo; to be edited and posted)

    Morphic
    (completed, plus silly extras)
    A few scientists get drunk and start fiddling with gene splicing. Ten years later, they're taking care of eight half-Pokémon kids, each freakier than the next, while a religious fanatic plots to murder them all.

    Yaaaay responses! :D

    Since Tangent agreed to do the randomizing (and will be PMing everybody's prompts when the time comes), I'll throw my own hats in the ring to keep this going, especially as the prompts are useful fodder for this drabble thread right here. :B

    Living A Legend

    Write something from a Legendary's perspective.

    Under Construction

    Write something with heavy worldbuilding!
