Great Episode Challenge. 15-21 September (Prompt 1)

brain040.jpg

Friends, Russians, countrymen

He ran into him on his way to meet Napoleon, who was waiting in the car down in the garage. The tall Englishman was coming out of the elevator.

“Illya, my old mucker! Good to see you again. You haven’t changed a bit. How are you?”

“Very well, thank you,” Illya replied coolly. “How are you, Mark?”

“Extremely well, and raring to go.” Mark said, and continued, chattily, “I heard you were here, of course. Never would have thought we’d end up on the same side, eh?”

That all-too familiar, breezy bonhomie of the privately-educated English male, speaking in the cut-glass accents of the upper-classes, with their implicit put-down of lesser mortals – or serfs, in his case. His old mucker, indeed. He knew what that odd expression meant now. A place at Cambridge didn’t make you equal, they made sure of that.

“No,” he replied. “It must be strange to find that even Russians take any kind of moral view of the world.”

“I didn’t mean...” said Mark awkwardly, “don’t be like that, Illya … you know how it was at Cambridge… Secret Service recruiters and all that.”

“Yes. I do know.”

You can still write a story for the PicFic that's due today, or any prompt that you've missed. I'm still catching up too! Eventually I'll have a few things to post!

This is the prompt with stories due for today.  (If you can't post today that's okay, better late than never!)

The prompt for today:




RULES of the Challenge HERE

WRITE ON!

PICFIC BLURB.jpg


Every Tuesday a photo prompt will be posted and you have until the following Tuesday to post your gen Man from UNCLE story. For those of you new to the challenge the rules are as follows:



Your story is Due: Tuesday September 19th. Please post on this date, but it you’re a little late, that's okay. Better late than never!


Statistical stuff: Minimum 500 words, no maximum

Subject Matter: Write a MFU story based on the photo prompt.


Posting here should fit into the GENeral concepts of the section7mfu community, contain nothing explicit
and reflects the 1960's series in style and content, featuring our brave men from U.N.C.L.E.


However, that being said, there is a GEN-mature tag option for stories that contain violence, torture,
angst or very mild het. So if your story falls under one of these categories, please use the appropriate tag(s).


Your fic. can be specifically about the prompt, featured or just mentioned in your story.


The prompt is meant to inspire!

Where to post:


Gen stories, gen-mature post in section7mfu,

Het, long term romance & AU post on our other site mfu_map_room.

All other genres post in uncle_du_jour


Subject Header: Please include in the Subject Header your title, the phrase:'For Picfic Tuesday' and the due date.

When to post:

PicFic stories post on the following Tuesday after the prompt is given. So you have a week to write your fanfic. We try to keep the postings on Tuesday so readers will know when to look for them.

You can also post a story for any previous PicFic prompt that you might have missed. Just use the tag 'picfic' to locate any older prompts. Please note the date of the original prompt if you're posting a story for an older 'PicFic.'

( FYI: previously prompts were posted on Monday, they'll now post on Tuesday of each week)


Please include the photo prompt with your story! It's easier for the reader to relate to the story when then can see the image.

Due to LJ's new user agreement issues, we recommend that you post your stories on another host site such as AO3 or Fanfiction.net or our mirror community0 Section VII on Dreamwidth and post links to them here instead of text. Still it's up to you.

Here's next week's prompt! (an UNCLE-centric one to boot!)

[identity profile] carabele.livejournal.com


Just popping in to put up the guidelines for our last LIFECYCLE Challenge of the year, which has a theme of DENIAL.

The theme of DENIAL is pretty wide-open when it comes to the life of spies who constantly have to consider life-and-death situations. Do the guys sometimes purposely (or subconsciously) deny what the after-effects of one of their missions might be on "regular folks" who might be involved? Or do they indeed deny how those missions change their own personalities, perhaps not for the better? Those are questions to ponder indeed.

With that in mind, here are the guidelines for the LIFECYCLE: Denial seasonal challenge that will run from Saturday, September 16th through Saturday, September 23rd.

CHALLENGE: Write an MFU fanfic story regarding the idea of DENIAL. The story doesn't have to necessarily mention or include the actual term; just embody a scenario that fits the concept behind it. Do, however, place the term DENIAL in a comment at the start of the story for clarity.

STATISTICAL STUFF: Minimum of 500 words with no set maximum. (Drabbles are not incorporated in this particular challenge.) Must fit into the overall concepts of this community, i.e., contain no explicit adult material and reflect the 1960s series in style and content. Please tag your story with the lifecycle tag.

There's still time to post a story for today's PicFic prompt.  If you can't post today, just go with my motto of 'better late than never!"

Today's prompt again:

Thanks to everyone for holding down the fort. Being without a computer has been a source of frustration for me, that and my muse taking off to parts unknown hasn't helped either. I'm back on line now thanks to pactnmmt, and am trying to catch up with everything I've missed...but alas the muse still hasn't returned. I do hope to post my (better late than never) Summer of Man from UNCLE story very soon!
Hope you all are enjoying the PicFic prompts and are inspired by them!
Write on!

This monthly challenge includes two prompts drawn from a single episode, allowing you to explore unresolved scenes, unanswered questions, and uncertain motivations.

And now for tonight's program.

In New York City, on a street in the East Forties, there’s an ordinary tailor shop. Or is it ordinary?

Short Affair Challenge August 28 (Bottle. Orange)

Go away, I’m fine

mastr129 (3).jpg


It was good to be home - small, frugal, badly furnished, but sufficient for all his needs. And he was alone. He could give in to the discomfort.

He sank down on the couch, shivering a little. The effects of the drugs Vallandros’ men had injected him with were insidious. He felt washed out and stupefied still. His partner had been reluctant to leave him – he always knew when something was wrong. He’d mother him like a baby if he were ever allowed to.

At least he knew his own name, and was starting to remember more. Memories of that incarceration were troubling. He’d rather forget. Think of something else. His partner protecting him from the blast, lifting his helpless body up towards escape, his hand pulling him up the steps. Think of something else.

He should show more gratitude. His partner never demanded thanks. Read more... )

I'm short on inspiration as my muse has taken off on vacation without me again. I think she went to Ireland with my friends. I'm also still without a computer, as going to the library to write/post is problematic due to local construction. IPads minis are not exactly conducive to writing...

So here is the PicFic due today; there's still time to write a story to go with it. You can post late of course, as better late than never!

Short challenge Discover, White
Some kinds of ice are more dangerous than others

cand114.jpg

The ice is very thin

The commissary was fairly full; at this time of the morning, it provided breakfast for agents arriving early and unfed, or returning from late missions (also unfed). It was a good time, therefore, to introduce a new colleague to the male talent on offer. The older men, their home lives providing not only stability but also a more relaxed and healthy breakfast, were already at work in their offices. The talent on offer, then, was worth seeing – to set the blood racing for the day – being younger, fitter, and often very good looking.Read more... )
