After several years of inspiring the people of the workshop (and several board changes) I felt I was time to reset the Weekly Prompt Thread.

The basic rules are still the same (new prompt goes up every Monday, they will all be archived here in the first post, you don't have to write on a prompt if you don't want to.) but the biggest change is how to suggest prompts.

If you have a suggestion, drop me a PM and your suggestion will go into a running list of suggestions. Every few weeks, I'll pick one of the suggestions received at random--and if your suggestion is used, you will be credited.

I'll also be on the lookout for guest prompts--so if you have a really good idea and don't want to wait for it to come up in the randomizer, just ask me if you can post a guest prompt.

Happy writing!

Your first prompt this week:

You've been assigned a group project on some aspect of the Pokemon world--what does the project entail, and do your groupmates work well together, or do you end up with the brunt of the work?

As LT hinted yesterday, there is more than one prompt coming this week. In celebration of our new collaboration competition with the URPG, the other mods and I will be posting a variety of suggestions to help inspire your one shots! We'll be posting two each, so have a read, have a think and then get writing!

Storyline: You live in a luxurious coastal town, but a storm is minutes away from reaching your shores.

Quote: "I don't know what you were hoping to achieve, but blowing everything up really didn't help, did it?"

Come back tomorrow when @diamondpearl876 will post her suggestions!

Your second set of prompts from me this week:

--"Come on, you guys, it was only a movie."

--Your character has been volunteered for a role in the school play that they didn't want...so do they just deal with it, or pitch a fit?

We hope you've been enjoying this entire week's worth of prompts. They are all in the master list, so you can still use them after the collab is over.
