prompt table challenge - shakespeare quotes

Time for the new prompt table challenge!

The theme is Shakespeare Quotes. I've tried to use a good mix of quotes but if there's any that don't really inspire you, you can (within reason, obviously) substitute some of your own choosing.


1. Beauty provoketh thieves sooner than gold - As You Like It
2. They had not skill enough your worth to sing - Sonnet 106
3. Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs - Romeo and Juliet
4. Hell is empty and all the devils are here - The Tempest
5. To die upon a kiss - Othello
6. Let not light see my black and deep desires - Macbeth
7. That I in your sweet thoughts would be forgot - Sonnet 71
8. For where thou art, there is the world itself, and where thou art not, desolation - Henry IV
9. Now is the winter of our discontent - Richard III
10. You have witchcraft in your lips - Henry V
11. Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps - Much Ado About Nothing
12. A dream itself is but a shadow - Hamlet
13. I had no judgment when to her I swore - A Midsummer Night's Dream
14. With groans that thunder love, with sighs of fire - Twelfth Night
15. The field's chief flower, sweet above compare - Venus and Adonis
16. Nothing can be made out of nothing - King Lear
17. Her passions are made of nothing but the finest part of pure love - Antony and Cleopatra
18. I am not bound to please thee with my answers - The Merchant of Venice
19. The fault… is not in our stars, but in ourselves - Julius Caesar
20. She's beautiful and therefore to be wooed - Henry VI


on the ficlets themselves:

- To complete the challenge you must write 20 ficlets, one for each of the prompts listed.

- You are allowed to cross-post your ficlets to other communities and journals (in accordance with their rules, obviously). Just remember to post a link to them to our comm at some point - you can either post as you go or wait and post your whole table when you're done.

on making claims:
- You can claim a character, pairing or fandom, or you can make a general claim and write a variety of subjects.
- Claims are not limited in any way, so more than one person can claim the same thing.
- Original fiction and characters are allowed.
- Crossovers are permitted, whether as a specific claim or as part of any of your ficlets.
