Hello Fag Enders!!

You saw the poll go up, so you know that that means - a new day and a new month is on us tomorrow, and so it is with the final rays of August that we draw the SB Fag Ends comment party to a close...


There are loads of things on there to read - and I'm sure most prompters won't mind if you want to produce anything new for the sb_ashtray. We're hoping to have a master post of everything people produced in a few days time. Do let us know with comments to this post if you have neatened up versions of things posted elsewhere!

Otherwise, do take another look if you haven't been by in a while, to see what's there! Thank you to everyone who took part, either prompting or filling or just plain commenting. Congratulations to us all!!

August Poll


The poll contains all the suggestions from last month's poll. We have also added suggestions from earlier polls and made up a few more to make up the numbers.

Pick which theme you would like to see us feature for September. As usual, we are not going to explain what each theme is; they may or may not be what you think! In the box beneath the main poll, we’d like you to suggest the theme(s) YOU would like to see for OCTOBER (but these should be Halloween themes).

These suggestions will then form next month’s poll in a mixed up kind of way* along with at least one other suggestion that the mods will throw in themselves. In the event that we have less than 10 suggestions, the mods will fill in the rest to make up the numbers. If your theme suggestion isn’t picked, then you are welcome to suggest it again in other polls.

Remember: your suggestions for themes should be broad so that it’s easy for us to make up 20 prompts. For instance, ‘teacup’ is too narrow, but ‘Alice in Wonderland' works (more or less). Please expand on your suggestion in the comments to this post.

* We reserve the right to reject, tweak or combine any suggestions that are unsuitable, inappropriate for everyone or unworkable for us in any way. This might be because the suggested theme is a) too narrow and we can’t think of 20 prompts, b) too similar to a previous theme, c) because we don’t understand your suggestion or d) because it’s just plain unpleasant (i.e. sexist, racist, homophobic etc).

The poll will probably close around 20.00 GMT, (i.e. when I remember), on Monday, 31st August 2015. If there is a tie, the mods will choose the theme to do first from the winners and the other winner(s) will follow the month(s) after and there will be no poll for that month(s).

Onto the good stuff:

This poll is closed.

What theme would you like to see for SEPTEMBER?

One Hit Wonders
Under the Sea
Autumn Sonata
Trivial Pursuit
Bad Dreams
Back to School
Golden Dreams
Soup and Salad

My suggestion for a Halloween theme for OCTOBER is:


Well, hello everybody!! You may have been wondering what was going to happen in this fourth week of August (or not). But nonetheless, something is! On the 25th of August 2010, I made the first post to this community (because I am the noisiest), and since then we have had prompts and fills galore - so we decided it was time for a party, for we are five years old. This, as they say, is that party. This is the SB Fag Ends Fifth Anniversy Comment Party - WITH FLAMINGOS




Are you not excited? For what is this party? Well, in case you haven't guessed, we thought it was time for us all to make some prompts and make some fills, in the comments section below. It is as easy as that, because we all need some comment!Spuffy. We therefore have the following instructions:

  1. Make your prompt in a new comment thread, summarising in the subject line so that people can browse. This can be as specific as a prompt as you like (or as vague) - but it must make sense to produce Spuffy in all the vagaries that we have ever welcomed in this comm! You may like to chose a setting, or another character, or introduce a song lyric; you may like to plumb our back catalogue of prompts.

  2. Complete the prompt as it inspires you, whether to fic, art, video, whatever! Add your creation as a reply to the prompt comment, marking the subject as a FILL. Please do this directly into the comment field, rather than as a link, so that we can all enjoy the party in our lovely fag ends house.

  3. Run around like a banshee enjoying the creations!!

  4. Advertise so everyone can come and join the fun with flamingos, fireworks or slim kind-to-your-flist fireworks:

Got it?? You don't have to be a member to join in, so enjoy!! I've also set us up to welcome anon comments, so do join in even if you're not an LJer. We're hoping to run all week, so drop in, have some fun, and let's all have some Spuffy prompting joy, yes? Congratulations us!!!!!!!!!!!!

June Poll

You might have been wondering where the poll has been this month. Well, we decided to not to have it because we have our own theme lined up for August!

Suggestions for the Poll will be defered to the August Poll, but if anyone wants to make a suggestion for SEPTEMBER then please add it below.

This poll is closed.

My suggestion for a theme for SEPTEMBER is:

Broad Daylight

Title: Broad Daylight
Creator: Double Dutchess
Prompt: in broad daylight
Summary: a vidlet (one minute, not counting credits!) that contrasts Buffy and Spike's daytime and nighttime activities. Obviously, it contains lots of sex and violence. No clips from Seeing Red though. The song is a butchered (by me) version of Broad Daylight by Gabriel Rios.
Watch the vidCollapse )
