So, okay, I said we'd take prompts until tomorrow. But dang, y'all came up with 60 of them! Sixty!! There's only about 22 of us writing/arting.

Here's how it works:
--Read through the prompts
--Think about the prompts
--Select a prompt
--Tell us in comments. Comments are open, everyone can see. Just so you can see what's being claimed. Hey, if you want to write or art a prompt that's already been claimed for fic or art, go for it. We know you'll come up with something unique. But if you don't want to share, then hey, now you know. Find another.

In a couple of days, we're gonna set up the claim-a-date-to-post entry so you can sign up for a day to post. Check your calendar, see what your schedule looks like. We'll be posting December 12-January 1, or thereabouts.

1. Pacific Rim AU

2. Bones refuses to go to the ship's or academy's christmas party

3. Nontradtional Christmas breakfast

4. Leonard has never made a snowman.

5. Christmas in a tropical locale

6. Bones being busy and overworked on Christmas Day.

7. One of them doesn't celebrate Christmas. Like they are Jewish, Pagan, Buddhist, etc.

8. Jim is a teacher. He is in charge of the school's Christmas play. Joanna is in the play.

9. Department store
10. Spam (the food kind).

11. Ice skating.

12. Sand, not snow.

13. "I didn't want a cat for Christmas."
"It's not a cat it's a kitten."

14. "What are you doing?"
"Me? Oh I'm just strategically positioning this mistletoe over your bed. But don't let me get in your way. Carry on with whatever boring thing you were doing."

15. "Why are you watching a hologram of a burning log?"

16. Festive sweaters! Ugly or not is up to you. :)

17. Someone mucks with the environmental controls *Scotty* and it starts snowing aboard the Enterprise.

18.  Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.

19. Absent friends.

20. Headaches or Migraines

21. Bones freaks out about snow

22. I'm the son of Santa Claus and you're my soulmate. I need you to come to the North Pole with me."

23. "So the Enterprise is haunted by a ghost who likes to hang up mistletoe everywhere in hopes we kiss. I say we do it for the sake of the ship."

24. Trans-Siberian orchestra is still a thing, classic rock or ever-evolving ensemble you can go see on Risa (aka Space Vegas).

25. Gift wrapping is not a skill one of them possesses.

26. Space Amazon runs out of the one thing that Bones and/or Jim actually admitted to wanting. Cue the O Henry shenanigans.

27.The "charming antique" one of them bought for a gift is actually a cursed or diplomatically critical alien object.

28. Fruitcake.  Bones makes terrible, traditional fruitcake.

31. Arguing over holiday cards

32. Jim,  it's 4 in the morning. Go back to sleep.

33. Tinsel clumps versus individual strands.

37. Jim and Bones plan a romantic holiday date for Spock and Uhura, but end up going on it themselves

38. Home for the holidays - but turns out Leonard's mom hates Jim

39. Sleigh ride

40. Enterprise crew does a sexy calendar ("It's for charity, Bones!")

41. Joanna and David plot to get their single dads together, OR plot to break them up.

42. Die Hard AU

43. The holiday season just before Star Trek Beyond, when Kirk is already feeling that sense of repetition and questioning who he is/what his place is in the world. McCoy interprets this Jim brooding over upcoming anniversaries (30 years since the Kelvin/5 years since the destruction of Vulcan) and looks for a way to bring him some holiday spirit in space.

44. As the holiday season approaches, the Enterprise gets called upon to run a rescue mission to a colony ravaged by famine. 

45. Due to a delay in the building of the new Enterprise, most of the crew has received temporary postings until they're ready to launch, and Jim finds himself teaching at the Academy while Bones does rounds at Starfleet Medical. It's their first Christmas back in San Francisco since they were cadets and the nostalgia, plus the downtime spent just the two of them, sparks revelations about what they feel for each other.

55. One of them gets transformed into a dog/cat/child/alien/something and ends up spending Christmas that way.

56. Jack Frost got tired of people not believing in him, so he created a new life for himself as Jim Kirk. He just has to be careful not to accidentally freeze things.

57. Christmas spent in the MedBay.

58. Winona wants to spend Christmas with Jim and enlists Leonard's help to make it happen (whether this means getting them to Iowa, getting her onto Enterprise, arranging a meet up at a space station or whatever).

59. A bar brawl on Christmas eve lands one of the boys in jail.

60. Life is good. Things are going well. So why is one of them so miserable?

Any questions? Let us know!

I am writing my own. :D

#30--Jim screws up Bones's grandma's famous Christmas cake--and destroys the only copy of the recipe in the process.

28th-Sep-2016 02:17 am (UTC)
I am really, really tempted by #56. I can see Jack throwing in the towel as people disperse across the galaxy and decide to make a new life. I just love magical realism.

And #55! I could have a lot of fun with that one, too.

We'll see what gets claimed; I'll do one or the other, if either has someone else interested.
28th-Sep-2016 02:42 am (UTC)
I'm with you on 56. That is a fantastic, awfully tempting prompt.
28th-Sep-2016 03:12 am (UTC)
Soo... I couldn't resist. If I could claim 56, please :,D.

28th-Sep-2016 11:35 am (UTC)
Whoot! Have fun with that! I've got more ideas for a mechanism developed for #55, it's gonna be fun.
28th-Sep-2016 11:52 am (UTC)
Cheers and will do! Super looking forward to what you do w 55! :D
28th-Sep-2016 01:18 pm (UTC)
I love that y'all are playing nicely with each other. Have fun with your prompt!
28th-Sep-2016 03:25 am (UTC)

#38 Leonard 's mama hates Jim, please.

28th-Sep-2016 01:15 pm (UTC)
It's yours! (YAY! for writing your own prompt. I totally approve.)
29th-Sep-2016 01:01 am (UTC)

Lol, it's the dala's, I loved her prompt way more and couldn't resist.  Although who knows, space Trans siberian orchestra may make an appearance.  : )

30th-Sep-2016 06:00 pm (UTC)
D'oh! Anyway, I'm looking forward to it!!

46 - Holiday Bake off. I can already picture the insults that will be flying.
28th-Sep-2016 01:15 pm (UTC)
I love a good insult-y fic.
28th-Sep-2016 05:57 pm (UTC)
Well, it was between that one and 50 because Bones and Garfield would be great friends.
28th-Sep-2016 04:23 am (UTC)
Okay, this is gonna sound really silly, but I'm torn between #15 and #33 (I can totally relate to both of them, lol)...

Screw it, I'll have a go at #33 (and if some hints of holographic logs show up in passing no one's gonna kill me, right?)
28th-Sep-2016 01:16 pm (UTC)
LOL. Glad you argued yourself into that prompt. Take all the liberties you want.
28th-Sep-2016 06:20 am (UTC)
#8 - Jim is a teacher and in charge of the school's Christmas play. Joanna is in the play.

Never participated before but I'm sucker for Christmas fests (and Jim/Bones) so here we go!

HA! I'm glad someone chose 15, now I don't have to feel guilty for not choosing it, lol. :D

Oh, and it's just Mys btb- much easier to type, too. ;P

28th-Sep-2016 11:42 am (UTC) - Question
If I finish my fic for the prompt I claim, can I come back and claim another?

Thanks! :D
28th-Sep-2016 01:17 pm (UTC) - Re: Question
28th-Sep-2016 01:56 pm (UTC) - Re: Question
Awesome! Thank you! :D
28th-Sep-2016 12:27 pm (UTC)
59, believe it or not.
28th-Sep-2016 01:17 pm (UTC)
Oh, I believe it. Can't wait!
28th-Sep-2016 01:54 pm (UTC)
Hehehe. Wrote the first couple pages this morning, I was so inspired. :D
30th-Sep-2016 06:00 pm (UTC)
28th-Sep-2016 12:43 pm (UTC)
I'd like prompt #3 - Nontraditional Christmas breakfast. :D
30th-Sep-2016 06:01 pm (UTC)
It's yours!
28th-Sep-2016 05:39 pm (UTC)
ok, I have to draw #16
30th-Sep-2016 06:01 pm (UTC)
29th-Sep-2016 02:49 am (UTC)
#44...I'm in Mission!Fic mode....
30th-Sep-2016 06:02 pm (UTC)
Nice! Love to read what you come up with!
30th-Sep-2016 01:48 am (UTC)
I'm going with #57 Christmas spent in MedBay.
30th-Sep-2016 06:02 pm (UTC)
30th-Sep-2016 05:34 pm (UTC)
im torn between - art for #4 (leonard's never built a snowman) and a fic for #23 with the haunted mistletoe...

i'm not seeing a lot of claims...can i claim both?

*gives puppy dog eyes*
30th-Sep-2016 06:02 pm (UTC)
18th-Dec-2016 01:17 am (UTC)
okay, this may sound stupid, but I'm finding it easier to write a fic for both prompts instead of making art for the snowman one. i am still trying for art, but if i do a fic instead, is that okay?

there is no worry about finishing the prompts as fics. one is already done completely and the second one just needs a read over to see if i'm satisfied...
1st-Oct-2016 02:26 pm (UTC)
I'm considering #25, #27, and #37 - but I actually might combine two of these. I'll come back with a firm answer - hopefully, soon! LOL!
2nd-Oct-2016 02:45 am (UTC)
Okie-doke. We actually don't need to know, but if it helps you make up your mind, then please do. :D
2nd-Oct-2016 01:48 am (UTC)
I am still considering. If the "Elf" AU doesn't pan out or I can't make the angsty xenopolycythemia thing work out, I'll come back for a prompt!
2nd-Oct-2016 02:45 am (UTC)
Works for me.
