Please read the community’s general rules in addition to the rules for this round listed below before prompting/filling.

It has been a while since we had a round, so please read/re-read the general and round rules to refresh yourself, because there are some changes/additions.

Any questions, comments, or future round suggestions should be left on the questions thread. Any comments of this nature left on the prompting threads will be deleted.

Round Seven Rules:

- This round will last for 1 week instead of 2. This means the meme will only be open for prompting for one week. Fills may be posted any time, including after the round is over.

- This round is a free-for-all prompt round. This means prompts can be made for any kind of Criminal Minds work. AU and crossover prompts are permitted.

- This can include prompts thematic of previous rounds, but please don’t repost/duplicate prompts from previous rounds (but prompts from previous rounds are still open to be filled on their round thread!).

- Gen and ship-based fills are welcome this round. Please do not spam the thread with prompts for one ship or character in hopes to increase the chances of fills being made for it. These entries will be deleted at moderator discretion.

- All works should be new for this meme, and not something you’ve already created you think fits the prompt. The new material being part of a series or established story is permitted.

- Extraneous comments about and discussion of prompts should be taken to PMs, and not on the thread. Off-topic or particularly digressing comments will be removed at moderator discretion.
- ’Seconded’ comments are fine! Just if we’re getting to ‘fourthed!’ ‘fifthed!’, maybe we get the point.

- There is no character or ship bashing allowed.
- Any prompts appearing to promote prejudice, violence, or *isms will not be tolerated.
- Prompts in violation of these rules will be removed at moderator discretion.

- Please remember to add a rating to your fill.

- Regarding sexual content: This is not an exclusively smut/porn meme, so vary your prompting.
- However, fills are absolutely welcome to feature adult content (with correct warnings/ratings), or for prompts to be entirely smut/kink-related, but it is not mandatory in any way.

- Use warnings/trigger warnings in the comment title. Failure to do this will result in the comment being deleted.
- [Trigger] warnings should be used when dealing with rape/sexual assault, violence, abuse, drug use, suicide/self injury, racial/anti-gay etc slurs.
- Note: “(fem)slash” is not something that needs to, or should be warned for.
- There are examples (with pictures) of how prompts should be formatted in the general rules, linked above.
- Warnings need only be made for actual content. Prompters do not need to, and should not, add trigger warnings for things they hope/desire fillers to write but are not actually featured in the prompt. It is the filler’s responsibility to add trigger warnings if their fill contains triggering material.

- Art fills will be allowed from this round onwards. This rule is retroactive, so if there is a prompt from a previous meme you want to fill with art, go ahead.
- Art fills can be: painting/drawing in digital or traditional mediums, graphics, picspams, playlists and videos.
- All content must be your own creations (in the case of screencaps, they should be from a source that permits their use for graphics). Plagiarism and/or art theft will not be tolerated.
- If you have concerns that all or part of a work might be stolen, please PM the mod who posted this round post.

- This round will be open for one week for prompting (until approximately 11:59 PM GMT on August 31st, 2012). Though it will remain open to fills after that date has passed.

Prompt Format:

- All prompts should be left in the comments of this thread. These can be left anonymously or not.
- Prompts should be submitted in the format of: Character name(s) + prompt.
- No story summaries. If your prompt reads like instructions of things you want to happen, write it yourself. These are prompts to inspire fillers, not requests for someone to fill at your behest.
- Please avoid tailoring prompts to fill mediums, (e.g., specifically requesting an art fill). Allow fillers to fill how they wish.
- Any [trigger] warnings (if necessary) should be posted in the title of the comment. There should be no other information except trigger warnings in prompt titles.

Examples:

Penelope Garcia, first hack
Hotch and JJ - batman and robin AU
Morgan/Reid - it’s so much better when you’re lying next to me

Fill Format:

- All fills should be left as a reply to comment where the fic was requested. Fills should be posted with the format: [Fill] Title (rating) in the comment header. A title is not necessary, but encouraged.
- If the fill is too long or you find it easier to do, you are welcome to post it on your journal and provide a link.
- Fills can be posted anonymously or named.
-Fills can be any length.
- Art fills should link to the art off-site. You can host the fills anywhere, as long as viewers do not have to sign up to view your image. Arts prompts should still be rated and have any applicable warnings noted.

- Multiple fills per prompt are not only welcome, but encouraged. The more fic, the better!

Notice: The community now has a Delicious account. The process of adding all prompts and fills is ongoing.

Above all, have fun!

Any questions, comments, or future round suggestions should be left on the questions thread. Any comments of this nature left on the prompting threads will be deleted.

Round Three Rules:

- Regarding ‘Trauma Swap’ fics: The idea of this round is not to take a canon trauma/event/piece of characterisation for one person and give it to another person (e.g. “what if Reid identified himself as the FBI agent in ‘Minimal Loss’ instead of Prentiss”, “what if the Reaper had gone after Reid”). The moderators have chosen to avoid this type of fic that specifically hijacks a significant event for a character in order to give it to another character, in favour of other various AUs. Any such prompts will be removed..

- There is no character or ship bashing allowed. Any prompts requesting rape and/or torture fic for sheer shock or entertainment purposes, promoting rape culture, or any other subject matter that is detrimental to the well being of people will not be tolerated. Prompts in violation of this rule will be removed at moderator discretion.

No story summaries. If your prompt reads like instructions of things you want to happen, write it yourself. Any trigger warnings (if necessary) should be posted in the title of the comment.

Any questions, comments, or future round suggestions should be left on the questions thread. Any comments of this nature left on the prompting threads will be deleted.

-The theme of this round is the Seven Deadly Sins. We are interpreting these sins as: wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, gluttony. Each prompt must contain one sin.

-Gen and ship-based fic is welcome this round. Please do not spam the thread with prompts for one ship or character in hopes to increase the chances of fic being written for it. These entries will be deleted at moderator discretion.

Prompts in violation of this rule will be removed at moderator discretion.

-Do not equate lust as a cause of rape. Perpetrators rape to assert power and control over their victims. To suggest otherwise by likening these actions to lust perpetuates rape culture. Any prompts suggesting this will be deleted without warning.

-Use trigger warnings in the comment title. Failure to do this will result in the comment being deleted. Trigger warnings should be used when dealing with rape/sexual assault (including references), violence, abuse, drug use, suicide/self injury, racial/anti-gay etc slurs.

Otherwise the actual prompt can be left in the body of the comment.

Examples:
Aaron Hotchner, pride, “job performance”
Garcia/Reid, envy, “secrets”
Rossi/OFC, gluttony, an ex-wife and a honeymoon


Fill Format:
-All fills should be left as a reply to comment where the fic was requested. Fills should be posted with the format: [Fill] Title (rating) in the comment header. A title is not necessary, but encouraged. If the fill is too long, you are welcome to post it on your journal and provide a link. Fills can be posted anonymously or named.

11 December 2011 @ 06:23 pm
Until December 25th


Participants should comment on this thread and provide a character and prompt to provide general direction for the fill. Prompts can be in the form of quotes, single words, or scenarios.

Please read the community’s general rules in addition to the rules for this round listed below before prompting/filling.

Any questions, comments, or future round suggestions should be left on the questions thread. Any comments of this nature left on the prompting threads will be deleted.

Round One Rules:
-The theme of this round is the Ladies of Criminal Minds. This round was created as a result of the lack of female-centric fic in the Criminal Minds fandom. More specifically the lack of female-centric fic that does not include the female character as one half of a ship. Because the purpose of this is to create fiction that showcases the women, all fills must fall under the realm of gen fic. There will be plenty of opportunity to write about your OTP in later challenges. This is a place to share your love for the female characters as they are, not imagine them in a relationship. These characters are multidimensional and interesting! Let’s give them something else to do other than be one half of a love story.

-Any prompt requesting a focus on a female character from CM is valid, no matter how large or small a role she’s played. This includes all female BAU members (current and not), cop of the week, unsubs, and friends and family of the BAU.

-This is a female positive space. Obviously there is no character bashing allowed (of any characters regardless of gender). However, because of the nature of this round, any prompts requesting rape fic, promoting rape culture, or any other subject matter that is detrimental to the well being of women will not be tolerated. Prompts in violation of this rule will be removed at moderator discretion.

-Use trigger warnings in the comment title. Failure to do this will result in the comment being deleted. Trigger warnings should be used when dealing with rape/sexual assault (including references), violence, abuse, drug use, suicide/self injury, racial/anti-gay etc slurs. Note: “(fem)slash” is not something that needs to, or should be warned for.

-This round will be open for two weeks for prompting (until 11:59 PM on December 25th). Though it will remain open to fills after that date has passed.

Prompt Format:
-All prompts should be left in the comments of this thread. These can be left anonymously or not. Prompts should be submitted in the format of: Character name + prompt. Any trigger warnings (if necessary) should be posted in the title of the comment. Otherwise the actual prompt can be left in the body of the comment. 
Examples:
Elle Greenaway, sometimes I think that we’re on the wrong side
Jessica Brooks, aftermath of Haley’s death

Fill Format:
-All fills should be left as a reply to comment where the fic was requested. Fills should be posted with the format: [Fill] Title (rating) in the comment header. A title is not necessary, but encouraged. If the fill is too long, you are welcome to post it on your journal and provide a link. Fills can be posted anonymously or named.

-Fills can be any length.

-Multiple fills per prompt are not only welcome, but encouraged. The more lady focused fic, the better!

Any questions, comments, and concerns regarding the community, rules, and specific rounds should be left here. They will be addressed by a mod as soon as possible.

 The CM Prompt Meme is a community designed to generate participation in the Criminal Minds fic writing community.  


Please note: This is not a spoiler free community. Any and all episodes that have aired are fair game for prompts and fills. Please be mindful of this if you wish to remain unspoiled.

Any questions, comments, or future round suggestions should be left on the questions thread. Any comments of this nature left on the prompting threads will be deleted.

The Rules:
1. If you don't like a prompt, ignore it. If you have a serious issue with the content of a prompt, contact a mod.
2. No character/ship bashing. Don’t like the character or ship? Skip it.
3. Any and all criticism of fic should be constructive.
4. Use trigger warnings in the comment title. Trigger warnings should be used when dealing with rape/sexual assault (including references), violence, abuse, drug use, suicide/self injury, racial/anti-gay etc slurs. Note: “(fem)slash” is not something that needs to, or should be warned for.
5. Prompts and fills can be anon or signed in.
6. This is not exclusively an adult prompt meme like the kink meme, so vary the content of your prompts.
7. This is a biweekly prompting community, with each round focusing on a different theme, not a place to repost your unfilled prompts from the Kink Meme.
8. All prompt fills should have the rating denoted in the comment title.  The MPAA or FRC rating systems are both fine. Key of equivalents: PG/FRC, PG-13/FRT, R/FRM, NC-17/FRAO.
9. Spelling and grammar are not the most important part of the meme, but please make prompts/fills easy to comprehend; e.g. no chat speak, not a huge chunk of text. If you need it, there are online spell checkers here and here.
10. Make sure all prompts and fills are in compliance with the additional rules for the round in which they are posted.
11. RPF is not allowed. Any prompts or fills violating this rule will be deleted without notice.
12. Please post one prompt per comment.
13. Don’t flood the thread with prompts. Reiterating the same idea over and over will not get your prompt filled faster. 1 or 2 prompts is a good start.
14. Filling is not mandatory, but encouraged! Anon fills are allowed and encouraged, so this is a great opportunity to try something new if you’re not already writing.
15. The minimum word count for fills is 100, and there is no maximum limit to your creativity. If your fic is long, you can link to it at another source if you want to.

Examples of properly formatted prompts:

and with a trigger warning:
