So, I'm thinking of signing up for this fest, but don't seem capable of choosing my own prompt - peculiar, I always could before.

However, if someone else were to throw some of those prompts and character/pairing ideas at me...well, I may well be willing to join up. (:

Feel free to lob some prompt/pairing/whatever ideas at me! If not, that's all good too. :D I'll still have MinervaFest to work on this summer. Probably a good idea to put more effort to working on my dissertation rather than writing fic...

But what properly sane person ever chose the 'good' idea over the better one?

Don't really have my day with LJ codes. Re-re-posting comment.

*Dances little gleeful jig at idea of Postscript author joining this fest*

Here's a very loose suggestion:
The usual suspects (Kelly, Tetley, self) are all writing Minerva-fic, as do a few others.
And we have a Hooch, too. (Need I say "tattoedsappho"?)

So give us a story from the POV of one of the other crones - Amelia? Gussie? Irma? Pomona?
I'll leave you to choose the second half of the pairing yourself. I don't want to tie you up beyond 'consensual'.

And charts B and D have been chosen a few times, so do A or C - the less popular ones.

if someone else were to throw some of those prompts and character/pairing ideas at me...well, I may well be willing to join up. (:
I'd be the last person to exert undue influence re. participating in bondage fests, so if you decide not to join, I'll fully understand.
Never mind that you promised me the other day you'd write festfics if I asked you for specific prompts. I'll not be angry with you for breaking that promise.
At my age, one's faith in humanity has been shattered often enough not to have many illusions left. So feel free to ignore this comment completely. No pressure, not at all.

Oh, my crones! Laughter. Never thought I'd hear anything like that. :P I'm so glad you enjoyed Postscript! Writing it was great fun. I had so many characters swimming around in my brain!

Your prompt is DELICIOUS. As soon as I read 'greenhouse' in your comment, I thought "Pomona with the Devil's Snare in the Greenhouse" - reverse Cluedo; WHO DID SHE DO? :P Erotic plants. That is always a brilliant idea.

Oooh, the Rita/Irma dynamics would certainly be fun... laughter. featherxquill would enjoy that as well, I'm sure. :P

Time tied to brilliant oak growth of your prompt!tree is time well spent indeed! Fear not! :D

(Of course I want to consent. :B Seems I always need a bit of a push first, though!)

Blushes and hides head. Should never have written 'Postscript' if everything else I write is going to be held up for comparison! :P I'll be sure to disappoint!

Ta, good, three Min-fics and a Hooch-fic, gotchya. (Yes, tattooedsappho has always been a big fan of the Hoochbird. :P I'm sure we will be discussing it this summer.)

Happy to give another POV! I've done Amelia once now. Irma too. Gussie...hmm, I wonder if I could pull her off. Pomona I think may be in the realm of possibilities, given I went to school for botany/horticulture and am sure I could summon the knowledge/poetic plant speak with a touch of research. Thank you for the suggestions!

A or C - right-o!

I've been reading bondage since I was 14, not a big problem. I haven't written it in a while. However, I have two perfect lesbian books to research from when I'm home - they could use another read through. (;

Alas, I'm less human than most would imagine, I believe! A promise is a promise. I will write festfic if you ask for specific prompts - gladly! They may not always be brilliant, but they will be written. :D I do hope I'll give humanity a nudge up in your eyes. (: Certainly won't ignore the comment!
