It's the weekend, so an easy one to wind up the week! Leave a prompt! Get a fic (hopefully!) :)

If you want more direction, here's a theme: Fall. Fall's my favorite time of year, but sadly they didn't have seasons on Galactica. Write an AU maybe--piles of leaves, hot chocolate, sweaters, football games, trick or treating... Enjoy!

And for inspiration...one of my fave pilots pictures:

Oh crap, I'm copying my Tumblr queue!






Frak it.

Let's get ficcy people! Pilots eating, Pilots being sexy, Pilots being sexy while eating – what ever you can think of!

It's Friday! Let's get back to basics. Today's challenge is easy peasy:



LEAVE A PILOTS PROMPT.

Any kind of prompt. Hopefully someone will come along and create something (fic, graphic, poem, haiku, meta, whatever) based on it. 

Have fun!

Thursday is upon us. Monday we talked about new fic. Tuesday we talked about Lee and Kara as people and why we were drawn to them. Yesterday we started an alphabet meme (and we're only up to G so if anyone is feeling inspired, I'm leaving it open until Sunday) and were rewarded with some lovely fic and graphics so you guys should go check that out if you haven't already.

Today we're gonna go to the dark side. Basically, the topic of conversation is:Weird and wonderful places for pilots to get it on )

Hello hello hello, I hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday and for those of you joining us from Commonwealth countries a very happy Jubilee weekend :)

This is my week doing the DPP and I thought I'd start us off nice and gently.

gently, gently )

For today's topic, we're going to explore AUs and pilots.

Imagine Lee and Kara on Earth, in modern times, and the Twelve Colonies, the Cylons, or Galactica had never happened. What do they do on Earth? How do they meet? Is it the same familiar, angst-ridden to get their act together, or is it easier because, this time, Zak isn't in the way?

Maybe it's the same universe that BSG introduced us to, but the Cylons never attacked the Colonies, or they tried but were unsuccessful. How does something like this change Lee and Kara's story? Would something like this make it easier or harder for them to be together?

Today is going to be formatted like Tuesday's DPP-- fic recs & discussion in one thread, prompting/writing in another. Of course, feel free to do a little of both, or step (or dive) into the writing pond even if you aren't a writer-- fic doesn't have to be very long, drabbles are always welcome!

Have at it! Happy Thursday, everyone!
[identity profile] kl-shipper1.livejournal.com
Have you ever wondered what would change if Lee had done this or Kara had done that? That's what we are going to do today: flip canon on its head.

Bear with me, because this is going to do a few ways (which probably will make more sense in my head than here). I'm going to open one thread for prompting & fic writing for those who are authors. I'm also going to open another for those who want to just discuss these canon changes and/or for people who have fic recs. You can also do all of the above-- don't feel limited because there are different threads.

Possible scenarios under the cut )

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.

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

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.

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!

Today, we're going to do a Author: Author: I also want to thank everybody for contributing to yesterday's discussion. Feel free to still chip in. There's still a lot of character's POV that we haven't discussed.

Good day everyone. I will be (for the very first time) hosting the pilots dpp week. Sorry for the later start today, I just got back to town and I had only started catching up on things. I planned some discussions, games, writing challenges etc. so hopefully we will all have lots of fun. 

Today's discussion/challenge topic is: Pilots from other people's POV

Wee know that Dee and Sam were aware of the feelings that the pilots had for each other and there were hints that Baltar, Laura and Sharon guessed a bit as well. What about other people in the fleet? Lee and Kara spend a great deal of time together (at least in early seasons) and they didn't always keep their confrontations private. Rumors across Galactica spread fast so I bet that quie a few folk where trying to figure out what was the deal between those two. 



If you are game, your task today is to pick a person from the list bellow and let us know what he or she thinks about Lee and Kara and their relationshipDoes he/she know/suspect anything? Is he/she interested in their relationship or finding out more?. Did he/she secretly root for them or against them? Did he or she had a thing for/crush on one of the pilots? Does he/she spread gossips about them?...

Get into "your person's" head and let your imagination go wild (the longer and wilder the better). Describe his/her feelings in your own words or write a drabble or link us to a fic. Anything that doesn't contradict the canon in a major way is fine. 

Military: William Adama, Saul Tigh, Felix Gaeta, Anastasia Dualla, Galen Tyrol, Cally Henderson, Helo, Sharon/Boomer/Athena, Hot Dog, Kat, Narcho, Racetrack, Helena Cain, Kendra Shaw Zak Adama

Civilians: Laura Roslin, Gaiius Baltar, Billy Keikeya, Samuel T. Anders, Tom Zarek, Romo Lampkin, Shevon, Tory Foster

Others: Six model, Leoben

YOUR PERSONAL PILOTS BACKSTORY
It's time to dig into your head!canon about the events that take place before the series. For the themes and/or questions below, tell us your head!canon. Doesn't matter if it's the same as someone else's because I think everyone's way of thinking about pilots gives a new perspective. And it does not have to fit in canon or even be all that realistic. Just go for it!

If you don't have a personal head!canon (even though I think everyone does to some extent), rec a fic that tells an element of their backstory in a way that you like (or has become your head!canon). If it's a multi-chapter fic, reccing a specific chapter would be great, as I think we've all probably read just about everything.

If you are so inclined, write a fic that shows us. *bribes your muse*

I've grouped the themes and questions into comments below - reply to those to keep things vaguely organized so we can all discuss. I'm excited to read everyone's theories and I hope fic will be inspired along the way!

WISHLIST UPDATE
The time for making a wish has passed, but there are many wishes left to be granted. GO HERE to make someone's wish come true!

YOUR PILOTS WISHLIST
The Kara/Lee part of BSG fandom is chock full of amazing talent. Fic, graphics, meta, icons, manips, fanmixes, artwork...the list goes on. Today, I'm going to give you the opportunity to make a wish in the hopes that one of our talented shippers will grant it. Hell, I'm going to give you three.

TO MAKE A WISH
1. Make one wish per comment, up to three wishes per person.
2. You may wish for anything that's possible to create in just a few days (ficlet, drabble, icon, manip, song, poetry, GIF, wallpaper, etc.).
3. BE SPECIFIC. As an icon maker and writer, it can be difficult to fulfill a prompt to someone's liking if it is too vague.
4. Expect that only one of your wishes might be granted. (I'll make sure everyone gets at least one!)
5. Stare at the stars anxiously waiting for your wish to be granted.
6. ENJOY YOUR GIFT!

TO GRANT A WISH
1a. Claim a wish with a comment: "I will grant this wish". (Only one person may grant a wish.)
1b. If you are willing to grant more than one wish, spread the love around to multiple wishers.
2. Sprinkle your magic fairy dust and create create create...
3. Post your creation, or a link to your creation as a comment to the wish.
4. If you are going to be unable to grant a wish you've claimed, please delete the claim comment.
5. Gifts are due by Sunday, the 25th, but earlier would be better!
6. ENJOY THE PRAISE!

This Wishlist is for new items only. Please don't rec fics or graphics that already fill the wish. If someone is requesting something that exists (e.g., like requesting a manip of Kara and Lee as jedis) just skip it. Or make another one! :D

Leave your questions as replies to the first comment.

ETA: It would be helpful if you could number your wishes as I have done below. It will help me IMMENSELY to keep track of things. :D

THE WISHING WELL CLOSES AT 11:59 TONIGHT. Make your wishes now! Granting a wish can occur any time this week. :)

There are two pages of wishes! Don't forget to go to the second page! We have wishes that have not been granted. Lords of Kobol, hear their prayer!
