FAQ Update:
There aren’t enough alternate prompts for me. Can you add more? Can I add my own?
- If you need additional alternate prompts let us know! We would be happy to discuss the potentiality of adding one or two more if the need to do so becomes apparent.
You are also welcome to suggest an additional alternate if you have an idea of what you would like to use. However, there is no guarantee that it will be added to the official list.
💛💚💛💚💛
We also want to take a moment to reiterate that you are, by no means required to write thirty prompts. If you find that there are only a few or perhaps only a single prompt on the list that you're comfortable working with, then that is absolutely fine! This event is meant to be fun for both the content creators and the content consumers. 🙂
No pressure.

We’re really looking forward to getting to know you all as writers and content creators! Today’s question is:
Have you participated in other writing challenges?  Which ones?
@obsessionoftheday
I have participated in @comfortember as well as @friendly-neighborhood-exchange, both were super fun experiences!
@yes-i-am-happyaspie
I took part in my first writing challenge this past November with  @comfortember  and I really enjoyed that!  I also jumped right into my first ‘fic exchange’ experience this past year by signing up for the @irondad-fic-exchange as both a participant and a pinch-hitter!  That was also a really great experience and I’m really glad that I decided to participate.

For Sicktember prompt 27 I just spent the last hour or so working on a fic where Peter’s sick and sleep walks into Tony’s room to steal his blanket at 2AM 😂😂😂
You have no idea how happy this makes me!  I can’t wait to read it!! ❤❤❤

We’re really looking forward to getting to know you all as writers and content creators!  Today’s question  is:
What makes you feel better when you’re sick?
We’ll go first!
@obsessionoftheday
I always feel so much better after I’ve had a day in bed where I can put on comfort shows or movies and doze in and out of sleep all day. I have trouble sleeping in the daytime so the noise of familiarity helps me zone out. The extra rest, especially when I have a fever, usually gives me the kick start I need to begin feeling better!
@yes-i-am-happyaspie
When I’m sick, I like to put on my comfiest pajamas and lay under my favorite blankets to read.  But I think what helps the most is when my family pitches in to take care of the tasks I’m typically responsible for.  Not having to worry about those things allows me to relax and get better!

We’re really looking forward to getting to know you all as writers and content creators!  Our next question  is:
What are your writing rituals?
As always, We’ll go first!​
@yes-i-am-happyaspie I think that the closest I get to having a true writing ritual is that I always make sure that I’m comfortable, the room is relatively quiet and that I have a snack or drink nearby before I start.
@obsessionoftheday
My favourite time to write is early in the morning when my brain is fresh and the house is relatively still. The only thing I really need to do before writing is get my headphones on with soft instrumental music playing to drown out any sound, otherwise I get distracted.

We’re really looking forward to getting to know you all as writers and content creators! So, for our next question, we’d like to ask:
What prompt are you most looking forward to working with?
We’ll go first!
@yes-i-am-happyaspie I really like the idea I’ve come up with for ‘unlikely caregiver’ and I can’t wait to start writing!
@obsessionoftheday I think ‘Comfort Item’ and ‘Faking it’ will both be a lot of fun

Imagine Peter taking his own temperature then showing the numbers to Tony with the most heart breaking face like “please help me.”
ajfskggskgz I LOVE THIS!
I love this SO MUCH, that I'm going to have to squeeze that into one of my @sicktember fics. (I hope you don't mind) Because IT IS THAT AMAZING! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Thank you for clarifying the rules. I know we have quite a while before the event begins, but I was curious if there will be a structure (ala whumptober) where we post to a collection on AO3, or whatnot? Like, does it matter how/where we post so long as it abides by the rules and is tagged appropriately, etc,? I guess that’s my question. Hope that wasn’t too confusing 😅
Great question! The short answer is yes, we plan to have a collection as well as a hashtag for sharing on tumblr. Stay tuned for more information regarding these things in the coming months!

Is it OK if the characters are minors in the canon but are adults in the fic? Also I’m assuming that non/dub-con is not allowed since you said “consenting” adults. I wanted to be sure about these two points. Thank you
This is a difficult question and the first thing we would like to establish is that we aren’t looking to quell anyone’s creativity by implementing too many parameters.
However, we would also like to keep this collection accessible to as many content creators and consumers as possible.
So, after some deliberation, we have decided to add a few additional qualifiers as far as relationships are concerned.
* Being as this event is focused on sick characters and their caregivers, we feel that it is reasonable to request that you not include any explicit content in your sicktember submissions. Relationships are important for storytelling but, in this situation, they shouldn’t be the main focus of your work
*In many fandoms, the act of aging up characters for the sole purpose of pursuing a sexual relationship, that would otherwise be considered pedophilic, is considered problematic. For the sake of keeping this collection as reader-friendly as possible, we ask that you avoid including those kinds of relationships in your Sicktember submissions.
*Any relationships you choose to depict in your Sicktember submissions need to be one hundred percent consensual.
Thank you for asking! If you have any further questions please let us know!

We’re really looking forward to getting to know you all as writers and content creators!  So, for our first question, we’d like to ask:
What Fandoms Do You Write For?
We’ll go first!
@yes-i-am-happyaspie
While I’ve only ever written Marvel-Iron Dad content I love to read Harry Potter, Black Butler, Big Hero 6 and BatFam fanfictions sometimes as well.
@obsessionoftheday
Currently I write for Marvel- Iron Dad and Spider-Son, though in the past I’ve written for Gilmore Girls, This is Us, Supernatural, and The Outsiders as well!

Happy FFWF!! Tell me about a WIP of yours that you’re really excited about!
Thank you so much! If I’m honest, I am excited about every single one I have going on right now which makes it really hard to pick between them. I am like a bloody bouncy ball between the works. I’ll go with two...
The freshest idea living rent free in my mind is my notes for some of the Sicktember prompts. I am going to be dabbling in some more AU kinda stories rather than my usual domestic Avengers shenanigans. They are still formulating but holy moly. I can’t wait to start bringing them to life.
The WIP I just keep on coming back to right now is the SupremeFamily fic as it’s likely going to be one of my longest stories.  It was a small idea that’s just absolutely exploded and I love it so much. For an absolute angst train like myself it’s been really fun to indulge in some very fluffy moments :)

happy FFWF lovely! you're always such a huge supporter and sweetheart I wanted to do the same <3000 what WIP are you having the most fun with recently?
Asdfghjkl ❤️❤️💙💙🤭☺️☺️☺️😊😍🥰😘😘♥️💙 Well hiya sweets! Happy FFWF friend! Good question! I just got done with Webpril and I’m still floating so happily from how well received it was and it shockingly became my most popular fic (collection) so I wanna say that even though it’s over!
Since I’ve been on quite a writing roll I’m also working on some Sicktember prompts and a WIP I started around Christmas that is a little angstier than I usually write but am excited to finish!
What do you have in the works, Kevy??

so, there’s absolutely no teenage relationships allowed, even if it’s explicitly stated that it isn’t sexual at all?
Thank you for asking, we’d be happy to clear that up for you!
The rules have been updated to state that relationships should be limited to consenting individuals (instead of ‘adults’) to be more romantically inclusive. Though we continue to ask that all relationships be represented in a non-explicit manner. Full (updated) rules regarding relationships are posed below, all changes are highlighted with italics.
-----
* Are there any restrictions?
- The only thing that we ask is that any romantic relationships represented in your fics, be limited to legal and consenting individuals. Fics that contain romantic relationships between adults and minors, are incestuous, or are Stockholm syndrome-based are not welcome in the collection. Keep it wholesome
-Please do not attempt to work around the event’s 'no adult/minor' relationship rule by 'aging' characters up or down.
-For the sake of keeping the collection open to as many readers as possible, we ask that you not include any explicit content in your Sicktember submissions.

Okay hi so I just wanted to share with y’all a few goals I’ve had since I started writing fanfic and like which one’s I’ve achieved and which ones I have yet to achieve bc I’m proud of myself y’know ??
Anyways here’s my achieved ones:
100 followers (achieved in November I believe)
Be mutuals with fanfic writers (idk didn’t think other writers would follow me let alone be mutuals with me and there a few who I really look up to work wise and wow I can’t believe they follow me ??)
Have one of my fics put onto someone’s rec list (this happened once !!! I was so excited !!)
Have a long comment on a fic (happened today !!! I don’t typically get very big comments, anything more than 3 sentences is big for me. But this one was a full paragraph !!)
Write a multi-chap fic (I mean technically I did it with Straightening Things Out but I don’t really count it bc it was supposed to be a one shot. So I consider Falling Apart At the Seams to be my first multi-chap, all five chapters bb)
Receive requests (I really like coming up with stories based off idea’s y’all have it’s cute !!)
People ask for 2nd parts of a completed story (idk makes me feel good ig, and also makes me think of his I can expand the story too, all around great)
Have a fic be someone’s comfort fic (this happened and I’m very proud of that)
Okay so those are what I have achieved and here’s some other goals that I have
200 followers by May 9th (my accounts 1 year, I’ve been silently in the fandom for a few years previous I just didn’t actively do things)
Have a fic pushed on a fic rec account. (Idk seems cute to me and I get really excited to see other writers given a recommendation from an account that does that specifically and I just hope one of my fics will get on own one day)
Art based on one of my fics (this one is a big long shot and I don’t actually think it’ll happen unless I do it myself, especially bc I suck at world building lol, these characters could be anywhere and the story wouldn’t change)
Write a long multichap fic (like 10+ chapters, just gotta get my writing strong enough for that first)
Get involved in one of the irondad events (I’ve been wanting to get involved in a few things but either at the time school has overwhelmed me or anxiety gets the best of me)
Do things like sicktember, whumptober (I just gotta get better at writing in general and these month challenges seem so good)
Write better fluff (I do way to much angst and hurt/comfort but I’ve just got no clue where to start with fluff)
Do better world building (I suck at it’s a fact, I’m working on it)
Idk like yeah those are my goals as a writers idk !! Like i’ve definitely gotten better at writing I can see the difference from Peter Went Silent to Falling Apart At The Seams, but there’s just little things that I want to do better in and other’s that I see others do that I also want to ?? So yeah anyways
Thank you all for your support I love you all so much and I know I don’t really talk to y’all one on one (especially my mutuals I haven’t talked to like any of you my bad) I just get anxious about the whole thing so I don’t but know that I love and appreciate you all
