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 Annie shamelessly and innocently at the same time flirt on more than one occasion without realizing it until someone suggests they get a room. Awkwardness ensues.

The Irritation of Flirtation
Rated PG


Annie was the last to slide into the bench at the group’s table in the cafeteria, carefully slipping her lunch tray into the small amount of space left on the corner of the table across from Jeff.

“Cucumber sandwich and fries?” Jeff questioned. She shrugged, picking up her juice box and pulling the straw from its plastic wrapper, poking it into the slot.

“I’m trying to be more healthy,” she said, taking one of the fries. Jeff smirked.

“And grease-fried potato is the way to go about doing that?” he asked, reaching across the table and snatching a fry. Annie scoffed.

“Hey, if you want to keep enjoying my fries free of charge, you’re going to have to can the comments,” she said with a hint of a grin. Jeff raised an eyebrow.

“Oh? And exactly what form of payment were you looking for, Milady?” he asked. She pretended to think about it.

“I’ll have to get back to you on that—but trust me that it’ll be far worse than shelving your witticisms for one lunch hour.”

Fully embroiled in their back-and-forth, both Jeff and Annie missed the rolling eyes and glares they were receiving from the group.

Later that night:

“Jeff!” Annie exclaimed, nearly crawling up his body as he held her cell phone high above his head. “Give it!” she cried.

“Give it!” Jeff mimicked, laughing at his own incredible wit.

“I’m serious!” she exclaimed, clawing at his shoulders trying to get some leverage. The two carried on like this, oblivious to the irritated glares they were receiving, until finally Britta spoke up.

“Oh for Christ’s sake, would you two get a room already!?” she exclaimed. Jeff and Annie paused with their bodies smushed awkwardly together and Jeff’s arm high in the air.

“What?” Annie asked, confused. Shirley jumped in.

“Aside from taking the Lord’s name in vain, I’m with Britta,” she said.

“Yeah,” Troy jumped in. “Either bone or shut up!”

The pair gaped at the group.

And then they realized their current positions and had to consider the possibility that they might have a point.

Haha, so adorable. I loled at the image of Annie trying to climb Jeff like a tree, and not in a sexual way XD
