Promptathon #1  
So it's finally here! The long awaited 25th prompt blow out! XD Well, maybe it's not that amazing, but it's a nice show that I managed to stick with something for so long, though the real accomplishment will come in 75 more prompts/weeks - that will be truly amazing on my behalf. As for the here and now, let's get started with...
 
FF_Yuri_Drabble's First Ever Promptathon! 
 
So how does it work?
 
1. You leave a comment to this post, either anonymously or signed in (totally up to you), with a fandom, a pairing, and a prompt (refer to the rules for more info on this). So it should look like this -
 
FFVIII, Quistis/Fujin, fear 
 
2. Wait for someone to write your request.
 
3. Write other people's requests while you wait!
 
It's that easy! Seriously! 0.0 
Best part? Everyone's welcome to participate! Whether they're a member or not! :D

 
Rules - 
-This a drabble community, so when you fill out a request, make sure it's with a drabble! Drabbles are less then 500 words as defined by me. Use this very easy to use word counter to help!
 
-Normally for this comm, I ask that drabbles be of a certain amount of words, either 200, 300, etc, but for this promptathon THAT RULE IS TOTALLY SUSPENDED! I only ask for your drabble to be a minimum of a 100 words (with a maximum of 500 words)! After that, write 101, write 325, write 498 word drabbles! I don't care! Go crazy!
 
-If a particular prompt really inspires you and you go over the 500 maximum, post it to your own journal (preferably not in a F-locked entry, plz and ty) and leave a link in a reply to the original prompt.
 
-Let's keep 'I second that prompt!' to one a prompt. x.x Don't make Bat (ie, me) annoyed. Multiple 'I second that!' for a particular prompt will be deleted.
 
-Prompt as many times as you want! Just try to keep prompting to three times in a row, then go read a magazine, and then feel free to come back and prompt some more. And please do try to write at least drabble for someone else.
 
-You can leave prompt/requests in any of these styles:
 
FFVIII, Quistis/Fujin, fear 
FFVIII, author's choice, fear 
Any, any, fear 
 
-Your prompt can be a lyric, a quote, a word, or even a situation (ie, Celes is learning to cast magic and Terra helps her).
 
And the most important rule!
-Have fun and pimp this out far and wide! :D
 
 
This promptathon will run for two weeks, so October 20th, we'll go back to our regularly scheduled show! Members can still post drabbles in the community that relate to past prompt challenges while this runs (if they want). ^_^

Re: Oo, oo, got one!
Fandom: FFX
Pairing: Lulu/Paine
Prompt: Sharp Edges
Word count: 500
Rating: PG

Lulu held the blade to Paine's throat, felt the hammer of her pulse through the steel, the beat and the flow and the warmth and the thump. "I can't."
Paine rolled her head back and leaned into the cushion of Lulu's more-than-ample chest. "You can. I need you to do it for me."
She was so close and she was begging. It would be so easy, just a quick slash or two, maybe three if the blade was dull, but she was Lulu and no blade of hers would ever be dull. That simply wasn't how she did things. "No. It's not right."
"Who gives a fuck? Just do it."
"You don't understand. This goes against everything that I've learned since..."
Paine closed her eyes. "I told you to fucking do it. It won't hurt me."
"But it will certainly hurt me."
"Then I'll be sorry for you when you do it. Until that happens, I can't feel bad for you."
The mirror before them laughed when it realized that it was able to reflect such a delicious argument.
"So it doesn't matter to you that I'll be miserable? That I will have to live with this for the rest of my life?"
Paine reached behind her and squeezed Lulu's hand, drawing the blade to her temple even as she tried to comfort the reluctant mage. "No. I want it done and you're the one. You're the only one I trust to do it."
"But..."
The blade quivered, hesitant and scared and so very, very unwilling.
"Do it."
"I can't. I just can't. Once it's done, there's no turning back."
"So? "
"Some things are permanent. Some things can never be undone."
A long held breath was exhaled in a rush and Paine smiled. "Exactly. I can't be like you, holding on to something for so long, just because I'm afraid to change. Now do it."
"Are you sure?"
"Very."
Lulu swallowed once, twice, then pulled the blade, wincing even as the edge sliced through Paine's pulse and power.
Dark hair fell to the floor in dizzy ringlets, all eager to be the first to meet the whiskered kiss of the broom.
"There." Lulu looked at the blades in her hands and thought she might be sick. Paine had such wonderful fairy hair, ebony absinthe that smelled of night and shadow, but now she was shorn to nearly nothing. "It's done."
Paine opened her eyes and looked into that laughing mirror, smiling at what she saw. "Thank you. I couldn't have done it without you."
Lulu threw the scissors on the counter and tucked her hands in her sleeves. "Don't ever ask me to do this again."
Paine laughed and grabbed one of Lulu's braids, jerking the mage down for a rough kiss. Tongue touched tongue, then she pushed her away, grinning at the disgusted expression on Lulu's face. "Why? Just because you like your hair long is no reason for everyone to go around with it to the floor."
