The first shot has been fired - the Fic Battle will now begin! Full rules and guidelines here (please note the sign-up addition and the last prompt deadline edit), but the quick version is here:

1) Author A replies to this entry with their writing preferences (from here) to start their thread. Minor changes are allowed to preferences, if needed.
2) Prompter 1 replies to Author A's thread with a prompt
3) Author A fills said prompt with at least 300 words of fic and posts it in a reply to Prompter 1's comment.
4) Author A moves on to Prompter 2.
5) Prompter 1 may now give Author A another prompt if they so choose, continuing on until prompts close on Thursday, June 21st at 10am EST (7am PST).
6) Authors have until Thursday, June 21st at 12pm EST (9am PST) to post their fills.

The author with the MOST fills will be the Winner! Any author who fills EVERY prompt they receive will be a Survivor!

A few additional notes:
** The length of the battle is for two reasons: A) varying free time for writing (a work-a-day writer or a weekender), and B) varying writing speeds (a tortoise or a hare).
** As the battle goes on, try to spread your prompts among the authors. If you see an author who has completed all their prompts and there's plenty of time to the end of the battle, help them out!
** No ideas for prompts? Use resources like unfilled prompts at various comment fic memes and fests (even other fandoms which could be adapted), or random story idea generators.
** Anonymous comments are screened for the duration of the battle. Please prompt logged in.

Questions? See the first comment thread below.


CEASE FIRE! The battle is now over! No fills posted past 12:00pm EST will count toward the final totals. Masterpost with winners, survivors and breakdown will go up by tomorrow at noon.

Authors may continue to fill their prompts, just for fun, if they wish! And prompters, please continue to feedback. :)

The Boy (and Girl!) Wonders | G | 709 Words

“Are you kidding me?!”

Troy and Annie spoke in unison as they exited their respective bedrooms, eyes locked and arms crossed in annoyance.

“It’s not your turn!” They shouted loudly, mirroring each other’s movements as they lowered their arms and stomped their feet. “Yes it is!”

They were dressed nearly identical, a tight display of red, yellow and green hugging their muscles and curves. Annie pushed her brown hair back as she adjusted her red headband, calmly walking toward the living room. She was not going to back down this time. She knew it was rightfully her turn for an adventure.

“Troy, it’s my turn to be Robin,” she said, arms crossing at her chest once again. “You got to do it last time, remember? You and Abed hung out on the roof - I mean, had a stakeout - and you caught that guy who was smuggling in all of those kittens even though the building’s lease specifically says no pets.”

Troy smiled, hands resting proudly on his utility belt as he stared her down. “Yeah, we were heroes,” he said happily. That was one of the better stakeouts. Usually they just sat up there fighting shadows or trying to predict villain plots, but this was sort of an actual crime. His eyes wandered away from hers, a dreamy expression taking over his face. “Plus we got to play with them all. They were all fluffy and purring. So cute.”

“You only got to play with them because you pinky swore that you wouldn’t tell the landlord,” Annie pointed out, moving her hands to her hips. “You didn’t even stop the crime, you just took a stupid bribe!”

“An adorable bribe,” Troy corrected. He shrugged his shoulders, glancing toward the blanket fort as he waited their roommate’s entrance. “Besides, it’s not our job to enforce the lease. If that guy wants to raise a bunch of kittens then it’s his deposit.”

“Whatever. We agree that it’s my turn now, right? You did it last time?”

“But you did two in a row a few weeks ago when I had to help the dean with that A/C problem,” Troy argued. “I don’t know how he overheated the system or what he was doing there so late, but I didn’t ask questions.” A realization hit, and Troy snapped his fingers before pointing an accusatory finger in Annie’s direction. “And I traded you a Wednesday for a Tuesday because you had to study for a quiz, but I never got that Tuesday. Is today that Tuesday? I think it is.”

“You got last Tuesday,” Annie argued, “and today’s not even Tuesday! It’s Saturday. Why are you so bad at knowing what day of the week it is? Do you even own a calendar?”

Realizing they were never going to solve this on their own - or rather, Troy was never going to back down and let her take her turn - Annie decided to call in the leader for reinforcements.

“Abed-” she began, then quickly corrected herself. “I mean, Batman! We have a scheduling conflict that needs solving. Also, I have to point out that this could easily be solved if we would have just adopted a color-coded schedule based on our availability like I suggested when you first bought us these costumes!”

Batman exited the blanket fort with a swoop of his cape, though it was less than graceful as it caught on the blanket.

“Crime doesn’t follow a schedule,” Batman growled as he approached them, “especially not ones that are color-coded and sparkly.”

“I never said sparkly....” Annie mumbled.

“But you know it would be sparkly.”

“Shut up, Troy!”

“Stop arguing,” Batman interrupted. “Play for it and let’s go. Crime is out there, and we can’t waste any more time arguing about whose turn it is to bring justice to the streets of Gotham.”

The two mumbled in agreement then began their “best out of three” rock-paper-scissors tournament. Even though Annie won - Troy always picked rock first, then usually played scissors, so Annie knew how to counter - she vowed to make that schedule first thing in the morning.

And, she thought as she exited the apartment window behind Batman, she’ll make it sparkly. Yeah, that will show ‘em.

Oh my God, I giggled all the way through this. I would have died if this had been a scene in the actual show, just to hear them say these lines.

Aw, I'm so glad! Thanks for the great prompt. It was fun to write and I'm glad it amused you as much as it amused me when writing it! :)
