Well here it is, the first PicFic Prompt of 2018 due January 9th

Good morning all and happy New Year! Many of us are suffering frigid temperatures,
so keep warm with writing or reading some MFU fanfiction!

The Section VII PicFic is a twice monthly challenge that alternates with "The Once Upon a Time Affair," hosted by Jantojones.

Today is the first PicFic prompt of the new year and you'll have until next Tuesday to publish your responses. (though if you're late, that's fine) Better late than never is still my mantra!

You can also post for any PicFic challenges that you might have missed in the past, as open posting remains.

Just use the tag 'picfic' or 'picfic prompt' to locate any older prompts. (Please note the original date of that older prompt in the subject header as well as your title)

For those of you new to the challenge, the rules are as follows:

Your story is Due: Tuesday January 9th. Please post on this date, but it you’re late, that's okay. We'd rather read your story a little late than not at all!

Statistical stuff: Minimum 500 words, no maximum

Subject Matter: Write a MFU story based on the photo prompt. Your fic. can be specifically about the prompt, featured or just mentioned in your story. It's meant to inspire!

Posting here should fit into the GENeral concepts of the section7mfu community, contain nothing explicit and reflects the 1960's series in style and content, and featuring our brave men from U.N.C.L.E.

However, that being said, there is a GEN-mature tag option for stories that contain violence, torture, angst or very mild het. So if your story falls under one of these categories, please use the appropriate tag(s).

Where to post:

Gen stories, gen-mature post in section7mfu,

Het, long term romance & AU post on our other site mfu_map_room.

All other genres post in uncle_du_jour

Subject Header: Please include in the Subject Header your title, the phrase:'For Picfic Tuesday' and the due date.

When to post:

PicFic stories post on the following Tuesday after the prompt is given. So you have a week to write your fanfic. Try to keep your story postings on Tuesday so readers will know when to look for them, but again, if you're late, that's fine!

Please include the photo prompt with your story! It's easier for the readers to relate to the story when then can see the image.

Due to LJ's user agreement issues, we recommend that you post your stories on another host site such as AO3, or our mirror community, Section VII on Dreamwidth and post links to them here instead of text. Still it's up to you.

Here's your prompt:

Who's looking out from this snowy arch? is it the good guys or the bad? Are Illya and/or Napoleon in trouble, or is it another UNCLE agent, or even Mr. Waverly? What are they thinking as the snow falls? Inquiring minds want to know?
