The Original and Still the Best

Vote on Faberry Week 2014: The Sequel prompts - Round 1!

There were an unprecedented amount of prompt suggestions - over 300! Some I threw out because they have been done before, were too similar to something done before, or were too specific. Others seemed to fit in with another suggestion.

However, there are still way too many (255!). So we’re going to do something a little different this time in an effort to get the final list down to a more manageable size. An anon suggested this (thank you for that!), and it seemed like the best way to handle things.

So what I’ve done is take the 255 prompts and split them into five groups of 51, ordered alphabetically. Vote for your 10 favorite prompts in each group.

I have set up a page on the Faberry Week blog with all the polls. They will be open until 11:59pm EST, October 2, 2014.

The 10 prompts to come out of each group will then appear in a final list of 50 prompts. From there, we will vote as we normally do, with each of you voting for your 5 favorites.

Anonymous asked: Is there a final list of prompts to vote for already?

The list isn’t ready yet. I plan on posting it tonight. You guys have put me in a bit of a pickle by suggesting an unprecedented amount of prompts. There are well over 250, which is WAY too many. :P

Anonymous asked: Hi I'm new to the Faberry fandom and I was wondering if you could provide some more information to us newbies out there about how the voting process for Faberry Week prompts will work. Do you need a tumblr account to vote or can anons vote too? Are there multiple rounds of voting to narrow down the list of prompts to like the Top 10 or 12 and then one final round of voting to choose the Top 7 or do you post one big list of all the prompts and the 7 prompts with the most votes overall get chosen?

Hi. :)

Anons can vote for prompts, but I ask that everyone use the honor system and only vote once.

The way voting works though is that each person chooses their 5 favorite prompts from the entire list of suggested prompts. Whichever 7 prompts get the most votes are the ones we will use for Faberry Week.

There is only one round of voting - unless there ends up being a tie between two or more prompts. If a tie happens, then I will create a poll to choose which prompt ultimately wins out.

Faberry Week 2014: The Sequel Prompt Suggestions

Now that the dates for Faberry Week 2014: The Sequel have been decided (November 30 through December 6), the next order of business is to figure what prompts we will be using. I will be taking prompt suggestions until 11:59pm EST, September 28, 2014.

After that, I will compile a list of all the suggested prompts, and then we can put them to a vote.

Remember to keep the prompts simple. In the past I have gotten prompts that were way too specific or prompts that didn’t lend themselves to a wider range of variety and creativity in various mediums.

Think of the prompts as themes. They should be things that can easily be filled by graphic makers, artists, and writers. Some examples of what I mean by that:

  • Hands
  • Passion
  • Secrets

Also, don’t suggest prompts that have already been done in previous Faberry Weeks, because we won’t be doing them a second time.

You can leave your suggestions in the ask box or answer below. What do you suggest?

Anonymous asked: What are gonna be this week's prompts?

That has yet to be determined. Currently, we’re just deciding on when to have Faberry Week. Next week is when I’ll start taking prompt suggestions, and the week after that, we’ll vote on which ones to use.

Hey, everyone! It’s time to start preparing for the next Faberry Week, and the first order of business is figuring out when to have it.

This poll will be open until 11:59pm EST, September 20, 2014.

(If the poll isn’t showing on your dashboard, click here. It will take you the actual post on the Faberry Week tumblr page, and you’ll be able to see the poll just fine.)

After the week has been decided on, I’ll ask you guys for prompts, which we will then put to a vote.

Anonymous asked: Is there a plan yet for a Faberry Week 2014 Sequel? Or are you planning on going back to a once a year schedule?

Yeah, I was planning on getting things rolling for the next Faberry Week tomorrow. I’ll post a poll then about what week to have it, and then take things from there.

Anonymous asked: Check out the faberry fanfic 'safe at sea'. It's different but soo good! I have no idea why it isn't more popular!

I’m a fan of Safe at Sea, and I reblogged naggingGargoyle's update last week. I, too, wonder why it isn't more popular - along with NG's other Faberry fics!

ETA: Sorry, kids, I thought this message was sent to my personal blog, which is where I reblogged the update. But I did reblog this story to the Faberry Week blog back when it was first posted for Faberry Week 2014.

nightmares: faberry one-shot


Faberry Week
Day 1: Scars
Day 2: Meeting Frannie (or: The Devil Wears Gardenias)
Day 2: Meeting Frannie (or: Gardenias in Stone)
Day 4: Age Difference (or: The Lack Thereof)
Day 6: Doppelgangers
Day 7: Nightmares (or: Perhaps Not? Who Can Say)

Author’s Note: The following is essentially an adaptation of some stream of consciousness writing I did more than a year ago to a friend and a few lines of dialogue I wrote not long after that. These writings ultimately represented a plan for a multi-chapter Glee fic that I now know I will never have the time or dedication to write. I have rewritten this open letter to more closely resemble prose, and I do hope you enjoy it.

Faberry Week 2014

Day Six: Nightmares

She wakes up in the middle of the night, it’s hers and Rachel’s last night in Lima and she never thought she’d be torn about leaving that house, yet there she is sitting on the edge of her childhood bed unable to sleep.  She gets off the bed quietly in order to not wake up Rachel and opens the bedroom door as slowly as she can, she knows that if Rachel wakes up she’ll start to worry and there’s nothing to worry over, Quinn just needs a few moments alone with her thoughts.

She walks through the hallway and then downstairs in the darkness, there’s no hurry in her steps and there’s no heaviness left in her heart as she lets her mind wander back to everything that’s happened to her there. She reaches the bottom of the stairs and makes her way to the living room, she doesn’t need to turn on the lights to know where she’s going, she knows that house by heart. She sits down in the first couch she reaches and relaxes into it, closing her eyes and letting herself be invaded by all the things that have happened since she and Rachel arrived, she’ll probably never say it out loud but she really is grateful to Rachel for convincing her to come. It seems that Rachel knows what she needs even if she’s in denial about it, and that’s one of the many reasons why she knows she will love Rachel forever.

Faberry Week 2014

Day Six: Doppelgangers

“Hey, Quinn, would you and Rachel mind looking after mini-me over here for a couple of hours? Frank’s driving me to the mall on his way to work to get the little one’s school supplies; it shouldn’t take more than a couple of hours. I just got to find some Adventure Hour or something backpack, with the Pink Princess… whatever her name is.”

“Princess Bubblegum!”

Quinn and Little Frannie speak at the same time and it makes the little girl giggle.

“And it’s called Adventure Time, mom! I’ve told you like a billion times!”

Frannie rolls her eyes at the little girl’s antics but laughs softly.

“Riiight, sorry baby I’ll try to remember the next time. I guess she’s more a mini-you than a mini-me, huh Quinn?”

Quinn smiles proudly and raises her hand to high five her niece.

“Hell yeah!”

“Language, Quinn! Remember this little one is also a smart copy cat and I don’t want to have to scold her again for yelling that whenever I ask her if she wants dessert!”

“Sorry, Frannie.”

“Yeah, you look sorry. Anyhow, I’ll be back in a couple of hours, ok?”

Rachel, Quinn and Little Frannie nod and Frannie leans down to kiss her daughter’s forehead and give Quinn a final glare as warning before heading out the door.
