A Picture is Worth 1000 Words: A Multifandom Comment Fic Meme

Have you seen a hot photo at Sex is Not the Enemy and you wish there were a fic to go with it? Is there a still from your favorite series that needs a story to accompany it? Do you have a vast stockpile of pictures of outer space that would make amazing back drops for a sci-fi story? Well, this is your place! You're invited to post an interesting picture prompt in the comments and to write stories for pictures that others have left.

The rules are simple:

1. For leaving prompts: Please post only one picture per comment. The picture is the only prompt you are leaving; please do not include fandoms, characters, plot ideas, etc. If your picture is potentially triggering or not safe for work, please post a link to it and include an appropriate warning/rating in the subject line.

2. For writing fills: Please include a title, fandom, and any relevant warnings/ratings in the subject line; also include characters or pairings if they fit. Your fill may be any length, and if it is too long for one comment, feel free to use multiple comment boxes or link to a posting on your journal.

3. You may leave up to five prompts, even if you do not intend to write any fills. You may leave one additional prompt for each fill you write.

4. Multiple fills for one prompt are welcome and encouraged!

5. Any fandom, character, pairing, or genre is welcome.

Have fun and pimp this around! I will continue updating the list of fills as new stories are posted.

To post images, you will need two things: the "img src=" tag, and the location of the picture. To get the location of the picture, right click on it and choose "copy image location." Then go to the comment box, right click again, and click paste. The image's URL ought to appear in the comment box. Then type img src= in front of it, and enclose the whole thing in < >. Your final product will look like the example below, but with < > instead of [ ].

If your picture is on your hard drive, you will need to upload it to the internet somewhere like photobucket or your LJ, then follow the instructions listed above.
[harry potter] bellatrix lestrange - she'll play her heart to a drum beat - pg
[note: So, I kind of ended up taking a few lines from the song of this screencap out of context and playing with that and just the image of these glasses reverberating to a beat ... tl;dr this is what happened.]



The sound of her heart is a low and steady thumping in her breast. Beneath dirty skin and ragged clothing, it has a rhythm that reminds her of the War.

For nearly fifteen years, it's what Bellatrix Lestrange wakes to; and when the hours pass and she imagines it must be dark, it's what she falls asleep to.

(Well, that and the sounds of her lovely inmates' screams from either side of her.

The walls, after all, are solid but not soundproof.)

She stays curled in the corner of her dark, wet cell where it's most comfortable, and remembers how they almost had it all - her and the Dark Lord - oh, yes. All of the brilliant, great, amazing things they were within a hair's breadth from achieving. She yearns for it so much, it aches right there - right in her gut so she feels it whenever she inhales, but also where it's pressed into the flesh of her forearm where the Dark Mark has faded into the grime and filth.

Her reward will be great. She will be by his side once more; and she will taste the power and the blood, and the screams of those who would dare not cower before her Lord. She will drink it in like a sweet, rich wine that could fill her heart and quicken its' song.

This cell is her palace, her sacrifice, her gift to the Dark Lord; it is a token of her loyalty - her love - for him, and proof that she is faithful. Always faithful.

She smiles through cracked, dried lips.

And she waits.
