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. :)

Someone in the study group makes a deal with Mr. Gold, and Jeff goes up against him in a battle of words, wits, and loopholes to try and get them out of it.
Jun. 17th, 2012 02:38 am (UTC)
“You promised him your first-born in exchange for a lifetime supply of celebrity impersonators?” Jeff asked Abed incredulously.

Abed nodded. “It was back when I first discovered them. I wasn’t thinking clearly.”

Jeff stared at Abed. “Okay, but why are you coming to me with this now? You don’t even have a child…” Jeff trailed off, then looked at Abed in confusion. “Abed, are you going to be a father?”

“It’s Hilda. I told her about what I did and our relationship took a major hit. I’ve lost over half of my interactions with her.”

“Hilda?” Jeff asked, trying to place the name. “You mean Hilda from Cornelius Hawthorne’s video game?”

Abed nodded again.

“So you want me to get you out of a contract you made with a pawn shop owner so you can make your video game girlfriend talk to you again?”

“Pretty much,” Abed replied.

Jeff shook his head. “Right, do you have the contract?”

Abed pulled a scroll out of his backpack and handed it to Jeff.

Jeff began unrolling the scroll and watched as it continued to roll. It was nine feet long. He sighed. It was going to be a long night.

Two days later, Jeff finally got to meet the infamous Mr. Gold. He looked harmless enough except for the calculating look in his eyes. And after reading through that contract, Jeff knew that Mr. Gold was a very shrewd man. Getting Abed out of the deal would be extremely difficult, if not impossible.

Mr. Gold held out a hand. “Mr. Winger, it’s nice to meet you.”

Jeff returned the handshake. “Likewise.”

They sat down across from each other, and Mr. Gold rested his arms on the table. “I understand Mr. Nadir wants out of his contract.”

“That’s correct. Mr. Nadir believes that he was not of sound mind when he made the agreement, and therefore considers the contract invalid.”

Mr. Gold considered that for a moment. “And yet Mr. Nadir has been taking advantage of our deal. To date, he has seen—“ Mr. Gold consulted his notes, “eighteen impersonators, with a total of twenty-six impersonations performed.”

“My client is prepared to pay you for services rendered—“

“But I don’t want money,” Mr. Gold interrupted.

Jeff shot Gold a sardonic look. “Right, you want a baby. To be frank, I doubt this contract will hold up in a court of law since the mother of the child would not be aware of the deal.”

“I’ll worry about the court, Mr. Winger.”

“Fine, then let me show you a picture of your payment. Abed’s first-born.” Jeff took a picture out of a file and slid it across to Mr. Gold.

Gold stared at the picture for a moment and looked up. “Is this some sort of joke?”

Jeff smiled humorlessly. “I’m afraid not. In Mr. Nadir’s mind, that is and always will be his first child.”

“This is an animation.”

“Yes, the mother is a woman named Hilda. She’s a blacksmith’s daughter.”

Mr. Gold stayed silent for a long time. Finally he replied, “Perhaps Mr. Nadir and I can work something else out.”
