Flash Fic/Art-Athon #1

What is a Flash Fic/Art-Athon? Good question! I'm kinda making it up as a I go, but for our intents and purposes it will be a weekend long event. The first 24 hours (from now until Friday at 4pm EST) this post will be open for prompts. They should be simple (just a word or phrase, or song lyric), and open to interpretation. Then, starting on Friday at 4pm through Sunday 4pm, writers and artists will attempt to fill as many prompts as possible with mini fics, drabbles, poems, sketches and manips.

Why are you doing this? I've seen similar activities done in other comms over the years, and I think it's a fabulous way to drive up excitement. And who knows! Maybe one of these little flash fics or arts will inspire a larger story that can be used for the Big Bang.

Who can participate? Anyone! You don't have to intend to sign-up for the bang as a writer or artist to play.

Can more than one person fill a prompt? Absolutely! While the goal is to fill as many prompts as possible and flood the Kadam fandom with lots of cute little fics and arts, if a prompt speaks to you and it's already been filled...FILL IT AGAIN! FILL IT THREE TIMES. DP THAT PROMPT ALL YOU WANT.

How many prompts can I leave/fill? You can fill as many prompts as you want, NO LIMITS! As for leaving prompts, don't leave 100 prompts without filling any. I think 5-10 prompts is a good number, but you can leave more or less depending on your needs. There is no requirement to fill a prompt if you leave one, but more fills are always nice!

Are there any rules? Just one: DON'T BE A DICK. I'm not going to police threads, but don't start ship wars, or complain that a fill isn't to your liking. We're the Kadam fandom, let's be as polite and classy as our boys.

Can I post my fills on Tumblr/LJ/AO3? What if I want to be anon? Of course you can! You can post them anywhere, as long as there's at least a link in a comment on this post. You can add your fic to AO3 if you've an account, and make it part of the Kadam Big Bang Collection. I've also enabled anon posting for this, but I do track IP address. So, don't be a dick (which if you'll remember, is the only rule.)

Should I put anything in the subject line of prompts? Yes! Please put any applicable warnings, so we can hopefully avoid any triggering content triggering someone. Pairing is not needed, as all prompts should be Kadam related.

Anything else? This is meant to be fun, so if you want to write that fic where Adam is a teapot and Kurt is a coffee mug and they have a star crossed love affair, GO FOR IT! I'm serious. Be as ridiculous, angsty, porny or mysterious as you want to be. These fics and arts don't have to be perfect, or even beta'd, to be posted. The most important rule (oops, there's another one!) IS TO HAVE FUN!!!

Kadam Chat: Go to Mibbit. Type in your preferred nickname, and then in channel field type #kadambigbang, and press enter! And VIOLA! You're connected. This chat will remain open throughout the duration of the challenge.

Post open through March 31st!

Adam is a teapot. Kurt is a coffe mug. Kurt really likes being filled with Adam's tea.

Yeah I went there.

From Billy Joel's "And So It Goes":

So I would choose to be with you
That's if the choice were mine to make
But you can make decisions too
And you can have this heart to break

Indigo Girls . . . "Ghost"
There's a letter on the desktop that I dug out of a drawer
The last truce we ever came to from our adolescent war
And I start to feel the fever of the warm air through the screen
You come regular like seasons shadowing my dreams

The Mississippi's mighty, but it starts in Minnesota
At a place where you can walk across with five steps down
And I guess that's how you started like a pinprick to my heart
But at this point you rush right through me and I start to drown

There's not enough room in this world for my pain
Signals crossed and love gets lost and time passed makes it plain
Of all my demon spirits I need you the most
I'm in love with your ghost
I'm in love with your ghost

Dark and dangerous like a secret it gets whispered in a hush (don't tell a soul)
And when I wake the things I dreamt about you last night make me blush (don't
Tell a soul)
When you kiss me like a lover and you sting me like a viper
I go follow to the river play your memory like the piper

And I feel it like a sickness how this love is killing me
But I would walk into the fingers of your fire willingly
Dance the edge of sanity I've never been this close
In love with your ghost

Unknowing captor you'll never know how much you
Pierce my spirit but I can't touch you
Can you hear it a cry to be free
Oh I'm forever under lock and key
As you pass through me

Now I see your face before me; I would launch a thousand ships
To bring your heart back to my island as the sand beneath me slips
I burn up in your presence and I know now how it feels
To be weakened like Achilles with you always at my heels

This bitter pill to swallow is the silence that I keep
It poisons me I can't swim free the river is too deep
Though I'm baptized by your touch I am no worse at most
In love with your ghost

In love with your ghost
In love with your ghost
You are shadowing my dreams

"Never Stop" by Safetysuit

I'll never stop trying
I'll never stop watching as you leave
I'll never stop losing my breath
Every time I see you looking back at me

/o\ It just seems like an Adam song for his PoV on Kurt.

Playing Catch-up
It's almost unheard of for a student to enter a performing arts program mid-year. Performing Arts schools don't work that way (there are tracks).

Prompt: Brody and Adam have to team up with Kurt to catch him up in his dance/scenework classes.

Or, just Adam. Though I think perhaps the triangle (not love triangle) might fill out the storyline nicely.
