The Soulmate AU and Random Prompt Challenge | Deadline: May 7th 2018

Recommended Posts

Hello hello hello! So lately I’ve been super into the Soulmate AU Trope™ in my fanfic reading so here I am looking for more by hosting a challenge all about it! :loveshower:

Challenge Name: The Soulmate AU and Random Prompt Challenge

Challenge Deadline: May 7th 2018

Accepted Fandoms: Harry Potter, The 100, BBC Merlin, Doctor Who

Accepted Ratings: Anything up to and including Mature (no explicit please)

Accepted Sites: HPFF, HPFT, AO3, FFNet

Challenge Details: This is a little twist on a typical random prompt challenge by adding in the Soulmate AU trope we all know and love. Basically, you pick two numbers between 1 and 15 and get a “Soulmate Prompt” and a “Random Prompt” to fit your story into. The soulmate prompts are how the characters “know” they are soulmates. The random prompts are a variety of dialogue pieces, settings, or characterizations.

Example: Soulmate prompt - matching marks over the heart           Random prompt - Person A is a doctor trying to save Person B’s life

Prompts can be switched 3 times each (so total of 6 possible prompt pairings). **If you struggle with the random prompt fitting with the soulmate prompt, you may suggest a new random prompt for me to consider allowing instead, but only after you’ve switched at least twice.**

Multiple people can do the same prompts and same prompt pairings, as long as they have different character pairings.

Rules:

  1. No pre-written entries.
  2. Can be combined with other challenges.
  3. Must follow all sites rules & guidelines.
  4. Must have "for MadiMalfoy’s Soulmate AU and Random Prompt Challenge" somewhere in the summary or story notes.
  5. Multiple entries are allowed.
  6. Multi-chapter stories are allowed - minimum of 2 chapters posted/validated by deadline.
  7. Any era/genre/character pairings allowed.

Prizes: I’m bad™ at graphics, so reviews are the name of the game instead!

Entries: Everyone gets their entry piece reviewed! (If it's a multichap, the last relevant chapter will have the review on it)

1st place: 5 reviews on other pieces of their choosing + favorite entry + promotion on my signature for 3 months

2nd place: 4 reviews on other pieces of their choosing + favorite entry + promotion on my signature for 2 months

3rd place: 3 reviews on other pieces of their choosing + favorite entry + promotion on my signature for 1 month

 

I know this seems like a very complicated challenge, so if anyone has questions, please ask!! :)

This sounds like a lot of fun! I have a question, does it have to be an AU? Can we try to fit it into canon if we can?

Also, soulmate 9, prompt 1 ^_^

Hey! So it doesn't actually have to be an AU, but since the Soulmate trope is involved, that's why it's technically an AU in my mind, even if the characters do get together in canon. ^_^ If you have a specific pairing in mind, please let me know that info as well in case we get duplicates!

Soulmate Prompt 9 is: Both characters reincarnations continue meeting over the years. Random prompt 1 is: "So why did I have to punch that guy?" - Character A or B

Of course! Soulmate Prompt 14 is: the Red Thread of Fate (aka red thread attached to pinky can get tangled and twisted but never breaks).  Random Prompt 14 is: "This wasn't my fault I swear." - Character A or B. 

Please let me know if you'll be a taker or a maybe and if you have a possible pairing in mind! :D

Things I should be doing: working on my WIPs.

That being said, I adore soulmate AU, so stick me down as a maybe! Can I see #5 for soulmate, and #15 for random prompt? :)

That sounds absolutely perfect! I think I'm leaning towards Raven/Murphy from The 100 as a pairing, but I'm gonna stay as a maybe right now ^_^

I've not attempted a challenge (or writing anything new at all!) in a very long time, but I'm trying to get back in the swing of things, so... I'd like to at least give this a try! Might I see Soulmate Prompt One and Random Prompt Four? ^.^
