Prompts are OUT!

All Prompts have been sent out! You should have two links to pictures of the Creature(s) you asked for. I hope you are inspired by them, but if you already have an idea of your own, and don't need it, that's great!

If you haven't gotten an email from me, please let me know so I can re-send, or otherwise help. Check your spam folders, or side email accounts first.

You can ask questions here in the comments or email me at ausar@netdoor.com

Have fun writing!

Spook Me Multi-Fandom Ficathon 2019

When the chill winds of autumn rattle the bare limbs of the trees, and dark clouds race across the face of the moon, the veil between worlds lifts to reveal:

The Spook Me Multi-Fandom Halloween Ficathon 2019!

This ficathon was created by ozsaur and dustandroses because we love spooky stories. trillingstar has been very helpful with finding great art prompts and is hosting this year's artwork. Halloween is the best time of year for reading stories that offer pulse pounding thrills, blood curdling dread and hair-raising horror.

All fandoms are welcome. Stories can be Gen, Het, Slash or Femslash. All ratings are accepted.

We have TWO new Creatures this year: Pirates and Apocalyptic Survivors! (The artwork for Pirates are for traditional ones, but if you want to write steampunk, space, fantasy or another type of Pirate, go for it!)

Sadly, Men In Black was retired last year. Anyone who still wants to write for Men In Black can do so, but I won't be able to send artwork prompts for it.

Dates to Know:

September 6: Sign ups start.
September 16: Sign ups end.
September 18: Prompts sent out.
October 20: Reminder posted here - please friend if you want to get the reminder.
October 26: Master Post opens, stories are due!

I'm still getting used to the new photo hosting site (thanks for the hosting, trillingstar) so if I've made any mistakes with your picture prompts let me know.

We have TWO new Creatures this year: Baba Yaga and Wendigo! trillingstar put together a CREEPY collection of Baba Yaga art for Spook Me, I can't wait for you to see them!

Sadly, Men In Black is being retired this year. It's been difficult to find new pieces of artwork for that creature. The last couple of years, I was lucky to find even two pieces of art for the prompt. Anyone who still wants to write for Men In Black can do so, but I won't be able to send artwork prompts for it.
