Day 19 - Aug. 27 - This is the cut-off day for prompters to reply to any questions about their prompt. Unanswered questions are considered enthusiastic agreement.

Day 22 - Aug. 30 - Party time! You now have the option of going unanon and reposting everything you've done to AO3 under our fancy AO3 Collection. Or unanoning in whatever manner you please.

(Click on the dates for countdowns; the fest is following MDT/Mountain Time)


For the purposes of this fest, the prompts themselves are warnings. If you have issues with this policy, we recommend either not participating or using Dreamwidth blocker.

Joining the 21_days community is optional for prompters, fillers, and all interested parties; we have some extra content for comm members, but this prompt/fill post, the discussion post, and the mod call post are open for everyone.

MOST IMPORTANT RULE: Posting unanon will be deleted. This doesn't mean you aren't welcome here! And if you'd like the content of your comment PMed to you, contact the MOD CALL post.

For Prompters and Readers

  1. Subject lines should include the series, characters and/or pairing you want. Feel free to be as descriptive as you'd like. Warnings aren't required, but they also aren't banned.
  2. You don't have to write or draw. It's anon, there's no IP-tracking, and we aren't going to stalk you.
  3. Do not comment on other people's prompts to try and change pairings or characters. Post your own version with the characters you want instead.
  4. If you fail to respond to a 'is this okay?' kind of question about any of your prompts by the 19th day, it'll be taken as an enthusiastic yes, no matter what the question is.
  5. There are no subject bans. You may prompt anything you want.
  6. If you don't want to answer any questions, you can say so, and that will work as blanket permission for anything people might want to do with your prompt.
  7. Prompts for non-Valdemar Mercedes Lackey series are allowed.

For Artists and Writers

  1. No claiming prompts, please, as multiple fills are welcome!
  2. Minimum wordcount per fill is 100 words.
  3. All content is allowed and all warnings are optional, but if you want to write or draw extreme kinks** for a prompt that doesn’t specifically request them, you have ask the prompter first.
  4. If the artist requests it, the mods will repost art fills as an embedded picture in a reply to their comment. NSFW art will be labelled as such in the subject line by re-posting mods. Art involving underaged characters in porn situations will not be re-posted as an embed.
  5. RPF of underage people is not allowed. We're not even sure if it's possible for Valdemar fic, but whatever. It's not allowed.

** "extreme kinks" for the purposes of this exchange include but are not necessarily limited to: extreme underage, major character death, scat/watersports/emetophilia, extreme gore, and bestiality. Please use reasonable discretion, and ask a mod if you have any questions!

For Everyone

This is a Choose Not to Warn fest. At no point will any comment be deleted for failure to warn of its content in the subject lines. They will be deleted for rampaging dickery and failure to follow the rules.

Unanon comments will be deleted.

Attempts at policing other people's fun will be deleted.

Prompts posted after the end of the 7th day will be deleted.

Links to off-meme posts posted prior to end of the 21st day will be deleted.

Concerns are to be directed to the MOD CALL post. If posted here, they will be deleted.

Fills that have spectacularly failed to fulfill the prompt/been posted to the wrong spot will be screened. You can request a copy of your work at the MOD CALL post.

The rules may change without warning in response to unforeseen circumstances, like us thinking of better ones.

I want Vanyel to go with Krebain and spend the next fifteen years as his perverse mind-fucked sex slave, and then the Heralds finally rescue him and he spends five years or whatever still fucked-up and traumatized and wasting away, and when the Heralds and Healers have exhausted all other options they discover that a young Bard in training can sing pain away so they decide to give it a go. And Stefen ends up being the only one who can slowly draw Vanyel back out of his twisted, broken shell.

I know it’s a bit of a long plot, so I’d be happy to get either one fill covering the whole thing (pipe dream, I know!) or separate fills for:

1] Just the traumatizing sex slave mind-fuckery with Krebain!

2] Just the trauma recovery parts with Heralds, Healers, and Stefen!
From: (Anonymous)
So the set up in the beginning of Exile's Honour is completely perfect for Alberich to be tortured a lot more intensively and viciously than simply being lit on fire. And by that, I obviously mean I want him gang-raped by the men under his command at the encouragement of the Sun Priest, and also tortured in whatever manner tickles you the most. Me, I'm a fan of humiliation, dehumanization, branding, flaying, and beatings, but I am a really flexible kind of person when it come to torture. Basically, if he doesn't like it, I do. Obviously, finish it off by lighting him on fire.

And then give me him recovering in Valdemar, where no one quite knows what happened to him except the healers and Kantor, and so no one quite understands why he's failing so horribly at adjusting in Valdemar (much more horribly than he did in canon, please. If you want linguistic failures and him not comprehending half of what people are saying, I would really, really enjoy that). If you want to ship him with someone, all I ask is not Myste. Good god, anyone but Myste. If you want me super happy, use Kimel, Dethor, Jadus, or Elcarth, but fuck, I don't care if you use Talia, so long as it isn't Myste.

Any single part of this is a-okay as a fill to me.

Basic premise: using magic is ridiculously energy intensive. Like Vanyel should be eating like Phelps if he wants to Gate somewhere, and that's why he's so thin and worn out at the beginning of Magic's Promise. And maybe everyone but Vanyel knows this, because maximum woobie.

I...don't care how or why really. Let's just assume that Vanyel saw Tantras with a woman or two, and was as charmingly unaware of bisexuality as he was of homosexuality in Pawn. Anyway, I want scary-skinny Vanyel on verge of collapse in the middle of winter on the Karsite Border a month or two prior to the opening of Promise, and a visiting Tantras feeding him, sharing blankets because they're camping in the middle of nowhere and Vanyel is cold, and flirting like it's going out of style. All while Vanyel curses his luck that his totally hot straight friend is so incredibly cuddly and hot. And weirdly devoted to feeding him.

Vanyel went no-no-no, but what if he'd gone no-no-no-yeah-okay-you-convinced-me?

...if you want to make Vanyel inexplicably accidentally mind-controlled by Tashir until half-way through, like fuck yes, I want that. But I'll take this hot mess however I can get it.

Stefan/Bandits, Stef/Vanyel, Non-Con

From: (Anonymous)
Bandits catch Stef instead of Vanyel, and gangrape him instead. Vanyel figures it out way too late, when Leareth presents a very broken Stef as his shiny "Come-with-me-and-be-my-magic-battery" bribe.

Ylsa/Karen/Sherrill, get-together fic

From: (Anonymous)
At one point in the Arrows books, there's a throwaway line about how Ylsa, Karen, and Sherrill might have formed a lifebonded threesome if Ylsa had lived. This is the story I want. Feel free to make it as angsty as you want along the way, so long as there's shmoop at the end.

Leareth/Vanyel, dreamsex, dream-stalking... (I'm okay if it's dubcon or noncon, but not compulsory.)
From: (Anonymous)
Instead of sending him to Savil, Withen actually did send Vanyel to a monastery. He's forgotten there for years, until one stormy night an injured stranger arrives at the monastery's gates in need of care. And then they start taking an undue interest in the monk who's nursing them back to health.

I could take this as Van/Lendel or Van/Stef. Bonus points if the monastery has left Van somewhat dehumanised and brainwashed - taken his hair, his name, etc.

Valdir/any, whorefic

I'm also okay with Valdir stripping. But don't tell me Vanyel's secret identity never had to go above and beyond to infiltrate someplace or to get information.
From: (Anonymous)
In Winds of Fate, when they’re breaking Starblade free of Mornelithe’s compulsions on him, Iceshadow says that he doesn’t have time for pleasure so he’ll have to use pain, and has Darkwind stab Starblade’s hand so he can use that sensation as a gateway to start unlocking the compulsions. I’d love to get a fill with Starblade’s continued recovery after that first step, with Iceshadow able to take more time and slowly use pleasure instead of pain to ease him through the next phases of his recovery.

(TL;DR, I want Iceshadow/Starblade healing cock)

Gen Fluff - Companions

From: (Anonymous)
Fluffy cute fic or art of some of the Companions hanging out! Just lazing around Haven, frolicking in the fields, getting into mischief, gossiping about their Heralds, etc :D
From: (Anonymous)
Lifting straight from this prompt:

I want Vanyel to go with Krebain and spend the next fifteen years as his perverse mind-fucked sex slave, and then the Heralds finally rescue him and he spends five years or whatever still fucked-up and traumatized and wasting away.

With a focus on broken Vanyel being super powerful, and the Heralds not wanting to but needing to use him as a weapon in the war against Karse. And nothing about it being okay. Vanyel hates it, Yfandes hates doing it to him, and he backslides every time he gets used as a war-puppet.

If they have to restrain him because he tries to wander away if they don't, A-fucking-plus.

I'm cool with a story about the people who are trying to help Vanyel even as they use him (Savil, Tantras, Randale, Yfandes, Vanyel's parents if you'd like, Lissa, whoever), or also a slice of life thing about Vanyel being really broken inside and trying so hard to be good for everyone, and never succeeding enough to make them happy.

(Your call on what "Broken!Vanyel means. You want him mute, blind, deaf, crippled, so withdrawn that he's basically catatonic, sexually promiscuous, incapable of making decisions or taking action, in chronic pain, having absence seizures, constantly shaking or whatever, I am going to like that. I mean, all at once is a little extreme, but I know I'd be lunging out of my chair for a spoon to eat that up with, so hey, do it if you want! But those are only suggestions, and I'm probably fine with anything you come up with. :P )

Vanyel + Stefen, Vanyel/Stefen, missing scenes

Date: 2015-08-09 06:59 pm (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
I have maybe read the bandit and kyree scenes near the end of Magic's Price too many times. Yet there wasn't enough explicit comfort for me in the magic wolf caves. So any snippets from there would be much appreciated. Holding, talking, taking steps forward and back, flinching, soothing, adding a little of Vanyel's broken POV, any and all that is very welcome! I'd also be happy if you want to take it to the healing cock place. Anything goes so long as Vanyel gets the comfort I so want him to have.

Van/Stef - getting together

Date: 2015-08-09 08:14 pm (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
What was the party trick of Stef's that impressed Van so much the first time they had sex? (I have a theory, but, go on, surprise me).

Possibly related: On the way back from Forst Reach, Stef thought he might have shocked or offended Vanyel...what had he done with Van that would make him wonder that?

(I'm okay with these being taken as the same prompt or two seprate prompts).
From: (Anonymous)
You know the bit after Kero returns from Karse all exhausted and worn out, and Shallan screams her name in joy because she's alive, and then offers Kero their tent to share?

Yeah, I want angsty grief three-way femslash where Kero's a little uncertain, but cold and tired and longing a little for someone to tell her it's going to be okay, and Shallen and Relli are the same, and somehow Kero ends up getting finger-fucked and taught how to go down on Shallen, and then squirming under both of them while they fuck her with a pair of dildos, strap-on or otherwise.

Vanyel/Stefan, Vanyel Survives, Deus Ex Machina

Date: 2015-08-09 10:38 pm (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
Because Leareth has a heart attack at how incredibly pretty Vanyel is. And has a magic death spurt that accidentally kills his entire army.

How does Vanyel and Yfandes' return to Stef and Haven go?

Van/Stef, mind control

Date: 2015-08-10 03:18 am (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
Stef uses his Gift to overwhelm Van with lust and/or to make himself seem totally irresistible. Optional: begging, dirty talk or dirty music, shame/humiliation, orgasm control. Consensual, please - doesn't have to be verbally negotiated in the text, but it has to be there.

Any Companions, support group

Because you know they need a space to commiserate when their Chosen are acting like fucking morons.

Slightly canon-divergent Magic’s Promise AU. Instead of disguising himself as a simple minstrel getting molested in taverns, Vanyel disguises himself as a minstrel or bard to infiltrate Vedric’s household for a month or two to get information. (Let’s pretend he’s able to sufficiently shield himself so Vedric can’t sense his magic.) In the course of this disguise, Vanyel aka Valdir ends up seducing Vedric, and feels horrifically guilty and conflicted and dirty about it because the man looks just like older Tylendel but is also Really Evil.

Bonus dubcon points:
Instead of Vanyel seducing Vedric for information, Vedric comes onto Vanyel first. Vanyel is too scared not to go along with the seduction for fear of breaking his cover as a financially insecure minstrel/Bard

Double bonus dubcon points:
Creepy dirty talk from Vedric about how pretty and vulnerable Vanyel is, his mouth is more useful for sucking cock than singing, etc

Nyara gen

Date: 2015-08-10 03:08 pm (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
At the end of Mage Winds, Nyara gets turned into a more human looking version of herself, without anyone actually asking her if this is what she wants or not. Can I see the aftermath? The confusion about losing her identity and body so suddenly and without warning, and whether she misses her cat features and anything else you can think of!

You can add as much Skif as you want, the book has that throwaway line about how he tells her he'll love her even though she's not exotic anymore, which is all well and good, but I want ALL THE ANGST ANYHOW.

Talia/Dirk /+ Kris, Kris lives AU

Date: 2015-08-11 04:05 am (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
So Kris survives, and then Talia and Dirk and Kris have to figure out what to do with the fact that Talia and Dirk are lifebonded to each other, but they both still love Kris too. Can this OT3 be saved?
