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. :)

Jeff and Shirley are hunters, one of the other study group members is a demon/ghost/supernatural being they are hunting. Supernatural fusion/AU.

“I’m telling you, Jeffrey, that boy is possessed by a demon,” Shirley told Jeff as they walked to the parking lot.

“Because Abed said he was acting weird this morning? Abed’s definition of weird isn’t exactly grounds for an exorcism,” Jeff replied sarcastically.

“I think because Abed’s so weird we should take him seriously when he says something’s wrong with Troy. And he said that Troy’s eyes seemed darker than usual.”

Jeff really didn’t want to believe that one of their close friends could be possessed, so he said, “Troy’s probably just got a cold or something and that’s why he’s staying at home today.”

“Well then either way we should check on him. You can even get him chicken noodle soup and I’ll sneak in some holy water,” Shirley said, her tone teasing and serious at the same time.

A couple of hours later they stood outside Troy’s door. Shirley knocked on the door, calling out Troy’s name in a sing-song voice.

Troy opened the door and stepped back to allow them in. Jeff lifted the bag he was holding and said, “We brought you some soup since you weren’t feeling well.”

“Thanks, guys,” Troy said and took the bag. “Sorry I missed class today, I wasn’t feeling like myself. But make yourselves at home.” He pulled out the container of soup and sat down on one of the barstools while Shirley and Jeff settled onto the couch.

Shirley held her breath and watched as Troy drank a spoonful. Then Troy gasped and Shirley heard a hiss as the holy water scorched his throat. She heard Jeff mutter “Dammit,” and they both jumped to their feet.

Troy immediately ran away from them, but as soon as he stepped in the hall he was stuck. He looked down and saw the faint chalk markings of a devil’s trap. He turned back to Jeff and Shirley. “Hunters,” he said with a sneer.

“Unfortunately for you,” Jeff replied.

Shirley shook her head and then began the exorcism, “Exorcizamus te, omnis immundus spiritus…

The demon inside Troy began to howl, raging against its prison. As Shirley finished the prayer, though, Troy lifted his head and a dark spiral of smoke shot out through his mouth. Seconds later Troy collapsed and Shirley ran to his side. She carefully patted his face.

“Troy, honey, are you all right? Can you hear me?”

Troy groaned and slowly opened his eyes. He looked at Shirley, then at Jeff. “Why are we sitting in the gross hallway?”
