Week 7 Challenge: Write What You Want
So while Week 6 works are still coming in…we thought we should get started on Week 7.
Now that we’ve challenged ourselves to step outside our boxes a little, don’t we deserve a nice reward?
Week 7 will be Write What You Want Week aka. Make Someone’s Day Week.
Here’s how it works: On anon (or not!) submit a prompt for something you’ve wanted to see in fandom/fic that hasn’t been written yet or that you want more of. (popular posts recently suggested: Garak and O’Brien being forced to work together to help Bashir, more Keiko!, more trans Damar etc.) Here’s your chance to throw your secret and not-so-secret wishes into the hat. Prompts will be posted to the comm and your mission for Week 7 is going to be to pick one of the prompts and give whoever posted it an ear to ear grin!
The prompt acceptance period starts…now! (and ends Sun Oct 5)
All hail the Lady! \o/

Please stop erasing Dis to build up Thorin, or create a base for Frerin.
Please stop relegating her to the “woman that gave birth to Fili and Kili” when discussing them.
Please stop ignoring the one female role model Fili and Kili have and replacing her with male characters in all of your headcanons.
Dis raised Fili and Kili on her own, because most of her family was dead. Thorin was busy trying to feed and protect his shattered people.
Don’t talk to me about how Fili has Frerin’s hair color, or how Kili is mischievous like his Father.
Talk to me about how Fili is every inch his mother’s child, and how his fierce loyalty to family and his devotion to Thorin and Kili comes from how she raised him. Talk to me about how Kili fell for Tauriel because she’s a strong, capable, intelligent warrior, and he was raised by Dis to view women as his equals, to be respected and admired.
How Fili’s bright yellow hair comes from Dis, who inherited it from her Mother, passed down to him through her line, and how Dis caught Kili trying to pull a prank on Balin, and then showed him how to do it correctly.
Talk to me about how Dis was the only one that believed Kili could learn to be a proficient fighter with a bow, and who taught Fili how to dual wield at such a young age.
Tell me about how, when she trusts Thorin to take her boys from her side and out into the world, he gets them killed. He gets himself killed.
And Dis is left behind, the last surviving heir to Erebor that I constantly see people forgetting, ignoring, or replacing with the male dwarves of Durin’s Line.
This has been a message from the Dis Is Better Than You 2014 Campaign to make the fandom stop replacing her as the key influence in who Fili and Kili grew up to be.
Two types of fic I’d love to see:
- Garak and O’Brien’s mutual dislike coming to a head for whatever reason, Bashir stuck in the middle
- Garak and O’Brien putting aside their mutual dislike momentarily and working together to help Bashir
