Third Anniversary Drabble Bingo

We've had a bit of time for reviewing; now it's time to kick off our writing event! The people have spoken, and drabble bingo will return for another year. The premise is simple: post in this thread saying that you'd like a bingo card and, optionally, what you'd like that card's theme to be, and then one of our bingo volunteers will generate a card with nine short prompts for you. You can ask for pretty much any theme for your prompts: perhaps you'd like some hurt/comfort prompts, or prompts about Zoroark. Here's an example of what a card of PMD-related prompts might look like:


Lost MemoriesLively TownTrust Your Partner
The Best TreasureCalamityStairs?!
Low IQNo Way OutVoice of Life

Once you've got your card, it's time to get to work filling it out! Write a drabble for any three prompts vertically, diagonally, or horizontally to score a bingo, and you qualify to claim a forum compaion. Just link to where you've posted your prompt fills to claim your prize! If you're feeling ambitious, you could instead complete four prompts for a four-corners win.

You can complete this challenge using the strict definition of "drabble" (exactly 100 words), but that's not required for this event: any fill of at least one hundred words counts as a drabble. Go as long as you like! Prefer visual art to writing? Three sketches based on your prompts will qualify you for a bingo as well!

If you absolutely hate the prompts you get after making your request, you may ask for one reroll. We'll provide you with a new card, but that'll be the one you're stuck with--no further rerolls will be given.

You have until the end of the anniversary (countdown here) to complete your fills and claim your bingo. Note that you get a forum companion if you complete either the reviewing event or drabble bingo--completing both won't net you two!

Currently Negrek and SparklingEspeon are giving out bingo cards. If you'd like to volunteer to generate some, we'd love to have you!

I would love to have a bingo card! Since I've never done this and head empty, I'll take a themeless and see what comes of it

I'm gonna try to do this! Hm... theme for this year... Let's try "Pokemon not often used in fanfic." If that happens to be an issue, I'll accept "Normal type" as an alternate.

Oh man, there are so many ideas I want to write about. I like crossovers, Flying-type Pokémon and describing the physical changes that Pokémon go through during evolution, kinda like those transformation sequences you’d see in sites like FurAffinity or DeviantArt. Are there prompts for what I mentioned?

Alright, here's the set for the first three of you, fashionably late. For those of you who wanted themeless cards, I went for prompts vague enough to apply to anything. Hope you all have fun!

Okay, I did my thing. I might’ve rushed it, but I’ll appreciate any feedback. Also, do I have to not tell which prompts I used? I tried to show them as best I could without telling.

Can I have 'Whump & peril' or something along those lines for a prompt?

@Hanafuda

Looking good! No need to say what prompts you used--I think I've got it figured out. ;) It's always fun to bring characters from different universes together, and Hoopa's a very natural way to do that! I can tell you like your transformation sequences, too; your description on that part definitely stood out. I do wish this had a little more of an ending, though. I know it's a "prelude," but at the moment it feels like the story just kind of cuts off before the two are about to fight. A little more closure would have really made this one for me. That aside, congrats on being the first person to complete the challenge!

Oh, it’s kinda incomplete because I wanted it to be a filler of sorts for the final saga of a crossover series I wanna write in the future once I have more experience. If you’re interested, I can talk about it, maybe in a different thread.
