Alright kids, the THIRD KARA THRACE GEN FICATHON is almost here! I've compiled the prompts, and fic posting will begin on Wednesday!


This is a prompt-driven GENERAL fanfiction battle (much in the vein of the porn battles, but hold the smut).

General fanfiction may include allusions to romantic relationships, maybe even employ romance as an element to illustrate a larger theme, but, romance, or the lack of it, should not be the point of focus for the story.

Action-Adventure, Friendship, Humor, Angst, Comfort, all of these are good categories to explore. Kara could lead a mission, make a sacrifice, exact revenge, solve a mystery, confess a secret, come to a decision, teach a student, go on a quest, reflect on a mistake, celebrate a victory, learn a lesson, question an order, save a life, or roll the hard six (just to name a few options). The possibilities are endless.

GET YOUR THINKING CAPS ON!

This is a prompt-driven GENERAL fanfiction battle revolving around Kara "Starbuck" Thrace.

You guys, just in case you forgot, KARA THRACE? IS AWESOME!

Sometimes I feel like in all the talk of destiny and relationships, self-destruction and harbingery....we forget sometimes just how much of a BAD ASS MOTHER FRAKKER Kara is. We forget her swagger and her smirkiness, and how she once tore the brain out of an enemy ship so she could fly herself off a remote moon! We forget how she pulled off impossible feats like taking out 8 raiders in one battle and landing her ship on bingo fuel with a huge hole in the side! We forget that she beat down a Six and got herself an arrow and saved a whole bunch of survivors off Caprica with an adorable nose crinkle to boot! 

Post a drabble or your favorite vid or a fic rec link or just some thoughts on Kara being amazing. Instead of focusing on the angst and the bad breaks, let's accentuate Kara's best qualities, her determination, her bravery, her skill. 

Here's some prompts to start you off! But feel free to add your own in the comments. Maybe you'll inspire someone else to create:

Retina-detaching moves
Bragging is for amateurs
Splash One
Raise Your Glass
Getting the best of a superior asshole
Top Gun
Best shot in or out of the cockpit
Baby, you're a firework
Bingo Fuel or Bust!
Smirk
"It's about time you admit it."
Dead and Loving It! (hee)
Hit me with your best shot
Getting the last word
Talk is cheap
 
And here's a vid I made a long time ago celebrating Kara's awesomeness:

Well done, gang! That's a lot of love for the ladies of BSGverse!  (Some of those crack/AU subs? Hilarious.)

A Quick Note: All prompts are reproduced here as first submitted.  I did my best to interpret whether or not prompts were intended to be single or in tandem with another phrase, but just feel free to comment if anything is wrong and I'll fix it up.

At midnight tonight, the battle opens for business.

Well done, my friends, well done! Here is the fabulous list of prompts you all came up with for the Gen Fic Battle.

A Quick Note: All prompts are reproduced here as first submitted. Some seem like they'd be great for a porn battle (or perhaps that's just my dirty mind at work), so please keep in mind that in all fics produced, sex or a romantic pairing shouldn't necessarily be the FOCUS or POINT. But exploring how certain couplings and relationships affected other aspects of Kara's life or made her realize something about herself could be very interesting. Therefore a prompt like "first frak" should be about more than just the actual sex. 

OK without further ado, here are your prompts. Get those thinking caps on and the battle will begin at midnight July 15! (Comments are currently disabled, but please PM me or post elsewhere on this comm if I managed to miss one of your prompts in my compiling efforts or if you just have other/more questions.)

ETA: THE BATTLE IS ON. GO 
HERE TO POST YOUR FICS.

PROMPT SUBMISSION IS NOW CLOSED! A LIST OF THE 350+ PROMPTS THAT WE'VE RECEIVED WILL BE POSTED VERY SHORTLY. THANK YOU ALL FOR PARTICIPATING AND GET READY TO WRITE SOME FIC!

Alright folks, this is the place.

Submit your prompts for the Kara Thrace Gen Fic Battle here.

This will work much in the same way the
porn battles do, but remember, romance is not the point here. It can be an element, but it should not be the focus of your piece. Kara Thrace is many things. She's a soldier, she's a fighter, she's a pilot, she's a daughter, she's a parent (briefly), she's a believer. All of those are rich areas to delve into for storytelling.

General Rules:

Prompts may be simple words, phrases, concepts, or quotes you’d like used. I heartily encourage specific and unusual prompts.

Sample: religion, gifts, lock and load, the lie she didn't tell, “For once, it wasn’t her fault.”

Submit as many prompts as you like as often as you like before July 11 at 11:59 PM EST.

Get your thinking caps on and HAVE FUN! I'll post a master list of all prompts sometime on July 12 and open up a thread for fic posting at midnight on July 14.

Please leave only prompts as comments to this post. If you have questions, please PM me, comment on the
Rules post, or email me at Taragel[at]aol[dot]com.

And please spread the word about us to Kara fans far and wide! The more participants, the merrier!
