This one is simple. Bring me the photos that make you fall off your chair in a puddle of fannish goo.

Like this...

(I want to know how the person in the red shirt got the job of pouring water over Jamie and were do I apply)


Or this...







(this one reminds me of the last part of Spy!Pilots, with Kara's new interrogation method)







And finally...

He's wearing a cravat! Yup, that does it for me. It's all white and fluffy and you just want to rip it off with your teeth... (Why, yes, I AM a costume drama fan)

Today we're leaving genre fic recs. Leave a comment containing a genre of fic you'd like to read more of, and then hopefully other people will leave you recommendations of fics they like in that genre. Leave as many recs as you can for your fellow shippers :)

Today I thought we'd try the fic prompting/writing again. Today's theme is body parts. Fic can be any length, but has to include the body part named in the prompt. If leaving prompts, please try and make it more specific than just a body part by tying it to a certain pilot. For example, Lee's fingers or Kara's knee.

Today we're looking at Daybreak. I know, I'm really sorry to do this to you...

Yesterday Mark Does Stuff finished watching allllll of BSG, so I thought this would be a good time to revisit how we see events in Daybreak - and how we saw them when we first watched it. Included under the cut are some of the things that Mark says about our pilots in his Daybreak reviews to get us started (please note, this is not an excuse to get personal, just a way for us to talk about how each of us feel about the ending based on what someone else thinks).

A jumping off point )

So what do you think? Does any of it mesh with how you saw the ending, or even still see it? Has your view of Daybreak changed over time? How?



Oh god, my poor poor heart

I'm back at the wheel of the DPP bus again this week and I thought we'd kick off with a writing challenge to brighten up your Monday, on the theme of Celebration.

Fics can be any length, the only condition is that the fics have to be based at or around some sort of celebration. Feel free to leave prompts with ideas for celebrations in the comments :D


Possibly the biggest celebration in BSG's run


As LJ is playing up again today, this post is open all week, so don't worry if you can't comment properly today. Join in whenever you can :)

Remember, the posts are still open. If you're at a loose end this weekend then please come and play :)

Previously on DPP:
Monday: Dialogue - The play's the thing. Prompts are open, but no takers
Tuesday: Icons - There are some gorgeous pilots icons there for us all to share in, so please leave some love for the creators, and possibly make some of your own
Wednesday: Inner thoughts - What were they thinking?. Still some prompts open. Feel free to leave more prompts - or fill some. [livejournal.com profile] kdbleu has written a gorgeous ficlet here about Kara after EoJ/Rapture. Please stop by and leave her some love.
Thursday: Propaganda posters. There are some really brilliant ones, so please stop by and share in them. They're virtually guaranteed to make you smile :)
Friday: What's in the box? There are some absolutely fabulous drabbles here, so please stop by and read (and comment). There are also plenty of things still in the box, so dive in and play :D
Saturday: Advice - a couple of bits there that are well worth reading :)

Today's final DPP from me for this week is "It's what we do (but why?)". What drives you to create and/or view pilots stuff - fic, manips, icons etc? Are there any episodes/arcs that you feel especially driven to create around? Or look for stuff about?


Kara does it because she loves Lee, and he loves her ♥


Hope you have a great Sunday. You've been brilliant this week :) Your creativity always awes me :)

Today is advice day. What advice can you offer to help others create?

Do you have an insight about the characters that you would like to share? A particular way of seeing Lee and Kara (either together, or separately) that you keep in mind when you're writing to keep the characters in character? Any other advice to keep in mind when writing? :) Mistakes that annoy you, or things you find that make you a better writer?

What about when you're making icons or manips? Are there techniques or programmes that you wish you'd discovered earlier, or wouldn't be without now? Particular styles your partial to? Any tips to give, or things to watch for?

Please comment and share your knowledge :)


Lee gives Kara some advice on drinking, which she then promptly ignores (*huggles the Kara in Scar*).

Today is the final writing challenge of the week. What's in the box?. This idea I've stolen from [livejournal.com profile] kag523, who used it in her recent fic Libertas. The comments section of this post is your box - please leave items in it (one item per comment), then write drabble length fics - one item per drabble - based on, and including them.

The only real rules are that the drabbles must include the item, and must include at least one pilot :)

Presumably before this episode, someone placed a hose pipe in the BSG writers' box.

Today, it's another image challenge: we're doing Propaganda posters for the fleet. I freely admit to taking inspiration from this one from QMX Online's fabulous Battlestar Galactica Propaganda Posters.

A couple I made to inspire you :) The second one was inspired by this icon by [livejournal.com profile] medelia_fi (huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sci_fi_shipper for helping me track down the icon in question).

These posts are open all week, so if you feel a burst of creativity hit, please do go join in.

Today's DPP is "What were they thinking?". It's another writing challenge, but this time instead of focusing on dialogue, I'd like you to write me a drabble about one or other pilots' thoughts in a situation. Get inside their head. What are they thinking or feeling? Really I think what I'm after is the internal monologue, a sort of polar opposite to Monday's challenge.

There's no limit on words - it can be as long, or as short as you like. Feel free to leave prompts as well - maybe there's a certain canon situation that you've always wanted explored. If you're feeling really specific you can ask for it to be from the POV of a certain character. Also feel free to include a screencap of the moment or scene you'd like explored. Recommendations for existing fic are also always welcomed :)


Kara's face is awesome here. I've always wondered what was going through her mind during this scene.

It seems to be my week to drive the crazy DPP bus again, and I've decided to make this "Creativity Week". So bring your creativity and shake the weekday blues away. I've got three writing days planned, and two image days so I'm hoping that there will be something that everyone feels they can participate in. If nothing else, then please show your love for the things that are (hopefully!) being created.

Today, The Play's The Thing1. I want you to write me fics that are structured as a screenplay (click on the link if you're not sure what I mean). For this you can do as much or as little as you want to do - just dialogue, or dialogue and directions.

As well as responding to prompts, I'd like you to leave some. In the prompts I'd like you to include characters, a situation and the location. Handy copy paste guide for you below.

<b>Characters:</b>
<b>Situation:</b>
<b>Location:</b>

And an example:
Characters: Lee, Kara, Zak
Situation: Pyramid Game
Location: A Park

Rules:
* Your fic has to be in a playscript form
* Your fic has to include pilots, or people talking about pilots
* Leave warnings if it's R or NC-17 rated, or includes difficult themes
* It can be as long or short as you'd like. One tiny scene to a full blown epic :) All are welcome
* Have fun!

Yesterday's DPP was a confessional post and you all took the idea and ran with it. There's some really interesting secrets and some discussions that delve quite deeply in to characterisation and produced some really interesting meta-ish thoughts. The discussion is still going on over there, and there were new confessions coming in quite late last night/early this morning, so if you have time today please do pop back to that post and join in with the discussions and start new ones. It's been absolutely fascinating reading them.

Today's DPP is Song Lyric Prompts Saturday. This is absolutely not the same thing as song fic but rather an opportunity to use a line from a song as a prompt for some fic.

Rules:

  • The prompts have to be a lyric from a song

  • It would be nice, but not necessary, if you could include the artist/title in case someone wants to go and look up the song in question

  • You don't have to include the lyric in your fic, just use it as a jumping off point, though you can include it if you feel it fits in

  • There is no limit to the length of the fic

  • The fics can be set in AU

  • If your fic ends up being R or NC-17 rated then please show that in the comment title



I've envisaged this as a sort of all weekend thing, so please do keep checking back :) I'll post a couple of prompts to get you going :)
