"50 Lyrics, 50 Prompts" by Straw
Categories: No category
Characters: None

Description: You know the drill. I saw some challenges like this, so I wanted to put together one of my own. Unfortunately, I’m not huge into music, so it proved a bit difficult to find fifty songs with usable lyrics. Hopefully I still managed a bit of variety.


Rules

1. Any fandom, any characters, any point of view, any sort of pairing or lack thereof.

2. I don’t really care what you do with the prompts. Want to quote them? Fine. Want to use them as a general idea? Fine. Think the prompt is a little long and want to shave it down? Fine. Want to look up the rest of the song and use it as a song fic? Also fine!

3. Write your responses as long or as short as you want. This can be a collection or a whole story. It’s up to you.

4. Feel free to do these in any order you desire.

5. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. My details can be found on my profile.
