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. :)

Britta gets offered a foot-modelling job, and has to decide whether she wants to go back down that road again.
Jun. 21st, 2012 03:28 pm (UTC)
Britta stared glumly at the phone as the beep finally sounded and a robotic voice told her she had no new messages.

She supposed she shouldn’t be glum, seeing as she’d practically been handed an easy, nicely paid job for having good genes and nice feet, and also possibly the beginnings of a foot-model career.

Britta guessed it was her “big break” then. It didn’t feel like it though.

She wished it would just disappear, that her old employer would ring her and apologise profusely that she had a wrong number- anything to get rid of it.

Instead she had a nasty decision to make. Stay or leave.

Britta could imagine all the free time she might have if she left; squandering money at exclusive bars with other very semi-famous people and renting a small apartment that gave her a fresh, sparkling view over the city. She could stand there, feeling like the empress of the whole world as it buzzed with life beneath her. Panoramic scenes would befall her each night and she would watch the millions of flashing lights with a soft smile.

The blonde looked distastefully round her apartment- it was cramped, stuffy and unattractive. She thought also of Greendale, the uncomfortable seats in the study room and the ridiculous amount of time she wasted in worthless classes.

Then she thought of the friends that consumed her life- how she for once wasn’t the least popular girl. She tried to imagine saying goodbye to them, explaining she was leaving behind their sad, little college in hopes of making a living out of a half- pipe dream. They’d all stare silently at her, eyes gnawing into her own. Barely a stranger anymore, she would leave half-heartedly upon their hushed, weary farewells and stare icily at the possible future that awaited her.

No, she would stay. Britta would be the best therapist she could be- and she would be entirely happy.
