Alright. Since happiness was the theme last week, I picked a more random one this time around, going for a supernaturally themed trope.

Involuntary Shapeshifting

A summary without the links to other tropes in the TVtropes definition: You've seen this in countless anime and horror movies. The whole idea of werewolves is based on it, and Involuntary Shapeshifting is a trope whose explanation is basically in its name.

A character has the ability to shapeshift, but has no control over when this occurs. Maybe it's the same thing every time, maybe not. Maybe it's into another species, maybe it's into their next door neighbor or their brother or best friend. Maybe they get older, younger, change gender. Maybe this is accompanied by a shift in mindset, personality, or attitude--maybe they're not a whit different. Maybe the changes are scheduled (the moon, the tides, the sun, every third Tuesday), maybe it requires a specific trigger, or maybe it can happen any time, anywhere. Maybe it's just their nose, or one ear, or something equally underwhelming.

The details are entirely up to you. This is another trope that could go way dark or just extremely cracky.

Please use the forms in the community profile and check out the rules while you're at it. After that, it's all on you folks. If you have any questions, do not be afraid to ask.

This prompt will run from APRIL 29-May 6. The next prompt will go up around noon on May 6. Feel free to post at any point within that time frame!

title: the lower markets; or; the sordid and gripping tale of the abolitionist nobleman and the tempestuous slave, put down in this pamphlet for the very first time.
fandom: My Chemical Romance
pairing: Frank/Gerard
rating: Pg-13 (sex implied)
disclaimer: Fake.
summary: Here is a steampunk bandom AU where Gerard is an abolitionist liberal nobleman living with his dandy brother in the city, and his father sends him a slave just to spite him. That slave, of course, is the angry, defiant, and very pretty Irish (WHAT IF GERARD IS BRITISH I CAN MAKE HIM SCOTTISH) Frank. There are automatons and old tomes and goggles. You have been warned.

( A slave was not the present Gerard had wished to receive for his birthday. )

Alright folks! It's time for our very first prompt here at BT. There was a little debate about whether or not a happy or sad trope would be good to start off with. We agreed on 'Happy.' And then I found this delightful trope under the category of 'happiness' on TVtropes, and, while it does fall into that category, it could be twisted into some truly horrific fic. Feel free to go either way with it.

Happiness in Slavery

A summary without the links to other tropes in the TVtropes definition: In short, Happiness in Slavery is a trope where a character is bound to another character through slavery, but does not want to be free. This is not a result of brainwashing.

This either results from the master character being kind to their slave, maybe even working to free them, or it results from a truly deranged slave who either is masochistic, feels grateful to their master for something they did in the past, or hopes that with enough love on their part their master will change their ways.

So you see now how this could go two very different ways. So take this and run with it. Maybe the slavery is very subtle and due more to circumstance than binding law. Maybe the slave has a collar and a lead. Maybe the master is kind and the slave sweet, maybe the master is cruel and the slave batshit nuts. It's up to you.

Please use the forms in the community profile and check out the rules while you're at it. After that, it's all on you folks. If you have any questions, do not be afraid to ask.

This prompt will run from APRIL 22-APRIL 29 thereby putting us on a Wednesday-Wednesday schedule. The next prompt will go up around noon on April 29. Feel free to post at any point within that time frame!

Please pardon our dust for the moment.

When we get a good amount of people joined up, we'll start up the first challenge. For now, please feel free to check out the rules or Tv Tropes to start getting some ideas!
