Writing Is Hard, Yo.  
I’ve fallen behind in my word count goals already. I actually started out the first week of the year doing really well, was even ahead for a little bit. But now I’ve stalled and I don’t really have anything I am working on that will spur me into catching up. Keeping up, yes, but not catching up. I need to be inspired. And I remember how well it worked when I was trying to get to an end-of-the-year goal in 2014 and I asked for pairings and prompts for the Mistletoe series I did. I met the goal I was striving for and then some, plus I did it in less time than I had allotted.

I was kind of hoping to repeat that occurrence.

And since we have a holiday less than a month away, I thought I’d go with that. No, no, not Valentine’s Day. I mean Galentine’s Day. February 13th. The celebration of one’s female friendships. Or gals, as it were.

So, if you guys don’t mind, could you hit me up with some female friendship prompts. Unlike the Mistletoe series - which was all about mistletoe - I don’t have a theme in mind this time, though I am sure I will find a way to tie them all together and give them a cool series name. But yeah, anything is welcome - any fandom, any female characters, any prompts. Anything you can think of. The fics themselves will center around female friendships, which should be celebrated more often!

Valentine’s Day for me, for years, since I moved in with my sister, has been about saying ‘thank you’ and ‘I love you’ to the people in my life. The BFF, Sister, sending cards to all the kids in the family, etc. I was delighted to discover Galentine’s Day, because it’s just an extension of what I kind of already celebrated.

So, yeah, help me get inspired, send me some prompts, kick me in my lazy butt and get me writing again!

Who were Arwen's friends in Rivendell?
How does she go about making friends in Minas Tirith?

In the West, who are Elwing's friends?

Does Goldberry have female friends? She is the River Daughter... what other beings like her roam Middle-earth?

1. Agent Carter: Agent Peggy Carter and Waitress Angie living in Stark's house between S1 and S2

2. Supernatural: Ellen meeting Mary Winchester in Heaven

3. Agents of SHIELD/MCU - Melinda May, Natasha Romanov, Pepper Potts, and Maria Hill (or any combination thereof) talking about the children (not an age related term) under their care.

I haven't been writing worth shit all of December and January so far. Though I did have an idea for a Five Things set in the mid-season finale episode of TWD. Stupid Sam! :)

I also might make an excel spreadsheet for my writing this year. Each time I work on a story, add it to the spread sheet; keep track of words for each by month. (This could also be a way to procrastinate while pretending to write, though.)

As you know, you're Galentine's fic is done! Just replying here so I remember which ones I've actually done! ;)

I will, however, be holding onto the Peggy & Angie prompt! I wanted that fic the minute I saw they'd be living together at Stark's house. Also, I like a challenge and the idea of writing either or both or these characters is a bit daunting, and that alone is reason enough to take it on!

Hmmm, I like this idea. But then I think it is procrastinating. But then I think I should do this too. So...I may not be the best person to ask about this, since I always find ways to procrastinate on my writing!

Ha, well... all I've written in Feb is the post about the mid-season opener of TWD. So... it appears I procrastinate plenty already even without a spreadsheet.

How about Arwen and Eowyn supporting each other in their new lives?

Does Gilraen make friends amongt the Elves, or how about when she returns to her own people?

Done & posted! You'd think that sort of rhythm and language of that old school British thing would be so outside my wheelhouse - at least I was nervous about it - but I found it so easily once I started. Total fun to write!

(Kind of broke the female friendship rule of The Galentine's verse though because I couldn't resist having Tumnus in there too!)

It allowed me to log in! *happy dance*

This is such a wonderful idea, sweetie, I love it! I might be a little late to the party, but I'm gonna leave you a prompt anyway. ;)

I had to think for a long while before I came up with a female friendship in a show that I watch, and that is just sad. And anger inducng. But here goes!

Faith and Buffy - retirement home. Do with that what you will. :)

Your fic is posted, bb! Not quite what you asked for, but still Faith & Buffy funsies, I promise!

Yeah, that's pretty sad and messed up. Though I was afraid you were gonna say Parker and Sophie and I am so terrified to write Sophie's voice, omg, lol.

OMG, yes, I can imagine! I've never attempted it, but that has to be hard. :o
