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. :)

Birthday | G | 436
They were on day two of operation ‘Find Shirley’s birthday present’ and while Annie had picked hers up within the first half hour (A scrapbook with bonus pages for mom’s to document their kids milestones) Britta was still looking.

“Annie I think I found it!” Britta exclaimed from the back of the store, causing all the other patrons to stop and look at her.

“Sorry,” Annie apologized to everyone as she walked over to her friend, “Okay, we need to keep the shouting to a minimum. Remember what happened in the food court?”

“I still do not think it’s fair that they don’t have a vegan option.”

“It’s a mall food court Britta. People don’t go there to eat healthy.”


“So what did you find?”

“This!” Britta announced picking up a bible and a rosary. “It’s Shirley’s favorite book and the necklace is a Jesus thing. She’s sure to love it.”

“No sweetie. No,” Annie took the items and placed them back on the shelf, “I think we should go and look someplace else.”

“Maybe you’re right.” Britta sighed. “Why am I having such a hard time? Everyone else is finished and done by now.”

“Maybe you’re making this harder than you need to. Think about Shirley. What does she like?”

“Jesus, but you said that was a bad gift.”

“It wasn’t bad it was just,” Annie shook her head, “We need to expand past that. Tell me about Shirley”

Britta leaned against a railing, “She’s a proud woman, she runs a sandwich shop, she’s a good friend a student and a mom,” Britta stopped talking, “I think I know what to get her.”

“Yay!” Annie clapped her hands, “I knew you would!”


Everyone was crowded around Troy, Annie and Abed’s Kitchen table watching Shirley unwrap her presents.

“Another cross, thank you Pierce,” Shirley said with a hint of annoyance in her voice. It was after all the third she’d received.

“This one has diamonds mined from your birthplace.” He told her.

“I was born in Oregon.” Shirley told him, her annoyance becoming more prominent.

“My turn!” Britta exclaimed handing over an envelope.

“It’s so small.” Shirley noted as she opened it and pulled out a card and began to read, “Happy birthday,” She opened the card and was silent for a moment as she tried to control her emotions, “to the hardest working mom I know. Take this day for yourself.”

“Aw.” Annie and Troy both whispered.

“And then she gave me a gift card for a mani-pedi at that new place that opened up near campus. Thank you Britta.”

“You deserve it.”

Aw! [/Annie voice] That is so sweet! I love that Britta gave a great gift, and that Annie knew just what to say. ♥
