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.
- The quotes may be interpreted as literally or as loosely as you'd like.
- You can post your ficlets in any order and at any time prior to the deadline of October 31, 2017.
- Your ficlets must follow general community rules - femslash, between 100 and 1000 words, etc.
- Please tag all your entries in this challenge with the tag prompt table challenge: shakespeare
- There is an AO3 subcollection for the challenge to which you can add you fics if you wish.
- Comment to this post when you've completed your table and I'll add you to the finished list.
- 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.
- You can make a second (and a third and etc.) claim, but only after you've finished the first one.
- You can continue to make claims right up until the deadline.

The prompt table looks great! =D

I've been struggling a bit with writing lately so I'd like to make a General claim. (I mean, they're probably be mostly Steven Universe based but I'd prefer the wiggle room.)

Beautifully done table; it definitely tickles my fancy for a favorite ship or two!

I'll ask for a claim on Rhajat/Soleil from Fire Emblem: Fates (FE14) first. I'm ultra-inspired for that ship as of late. If I finish early, I may make a second claim for all of my other ideas. ;O

A little late (my computer is still in the repair shop) but I am super inspired by these prompts and love this selection. :D
If possible, I'd like to make a general claim.

Hi there - referred here by my good pal [personal profile] phrenotobe. I'd like to claim the Black Closet fandom, please, with three substitutions:

3: With duty and desire we follow you - A Midsummer Night's Dream
5: I'll kiss thy foot. I'll swear myself thy subject - The Tempest
17: Things without all remedy / Should be without regard: what's done is done - Macbeth

If that's too many swaps please do let me know and I'll have another look at the ones I swapped out. Thanks in advance!

For anyone wondering, Black Closet is a game about intrigue and lesbians in a high-class private school with a WoC protagonist. Go check it out if you like mystery, strategy, beautiful writing, gorgeous art and, of course, lesbians. c:
