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 Constable's Duties | G | 692 Words

When Troy and Abed first broke the news to the study group that they were dating, Annie Edison had a meltdown.

First she went silent, attempting to process exactly what she had been told. Then she started on her emotional rampage - how was it possible that the only two guys she had shown interest in during high school had been gay? And, she confessed to Britta  over a glass of wine, she had kissed Abed! That made three gay guys in the Annie romance orbit.

But, after a few slightly-buzzed phone calls to Jeff to confirm that he was straight - and a few texts from Pierce saying Jeff was not - Annie had moved on to acceptance. These guys were her best friends and her roommates - and, most importantly, they were happy together.

When Troy and Abed announced their upcoming nuptials, Annie had no reason to freak out. In fact, Annie went straight to Office Depot to get a new wedding idea binder. It didn't take long for her to fill it up with every themed wedding idea she knew her roommates would love. She was in charge of everything, from finding the replica flowers from episode 5 of season 7, to making sure the commissioned DARSIT cake topper was the right size for the chocolate-caramel cake the boys had requested.

It was still a few weeks from the big day, but Annie was hard at work making sure everything was on track. She had sent Troy and Abed to pick up their costumes - authentic Inspector Spacetime and Constable Reggie outfits - so she could check them out, make sure they fit and arrange for any changes if necessary.

When the boys arrived with three garment bags, however, Annie was confused. "Why are there three?" she asked, jumping up from her spot at the table. She had paused in the wedding preparation to do some actual homework, but that was pushed to the side. "Did Shirley not pick up Jordan and Elijah's Blorgon outfits? And, if not, why do you only have one? Oh man, we promised they could both be in the wedding and now we have to cut one. Which one is older? Could we have them fight for it? Wait, that's ridiculous. I guess we -"

"Annie, calm down." Troy had waited to interrupt, partially because it was funny to watch her freak out and partially because he wanted to see what her solutions would be. She'd gone straight to fighting which, he had to admit, would be entertaining to watch.

"Shirley picked up their costumes," Abed explained, hanging two of the garment bags on the coat rack then handing the other to Troy. "She said they fit perfectly, or she thinks they do. She doesn't really get Blorgons, so she said to call her and you can check them out."

"Oh, thank goodness," Annie responded, then pointed to the hanger. "Then what's that?"

Troy grinned, and the corners of Abed's mouth turned upward as he unzipped the cover from the dress. Annie recognized it immediately, the flash of gold sparkling in the light - how could she not?

"What's this? I mean, I know what this is but...I don't understand. Constable Geneva can't be at the wedding. Her and Reggie didn't exist in the same season. It's your wedding day - it's about the Inspector and Reggie." She knew she was tearing up, but she couldn't control it. The detail on the dress was stunning - it was a real dress, not the homemade contraption she wore in the dreamatorium.

“You’ve done so much to make this wedding a reality,” Abed said, eyes glancing from his fiance to their best friend. “We couldn’t have done it without you. We want you to be in the wedding as Temporary Constable Geneva. She may have been from the worst season, but you’re from the best. If you that means breaking Inspector Spacetime canon, it’s worth it.”

“Aww, you guys!” Annie pulled her roommates in for a hug, tears now sliding down her cheek. “Thank you. This...this means a lot.”

Troy pulled away from the hug to catch Annie’s eyes. “Blogon. For everything.”

Aww, thank you! I have to admit, that line made me smile when writing it. ;)
