The Once Upon a Time Affair PROMPT

OUATA banner 1.2.png

We're about to head into March, but here in Britain Spring is going to be to be put on hold. We are going to be hit by temperatures and snow direct from Siberia, which is being called 'The Beast from the East'. To warm us up, how about a few tales of our own Beast from the East, along with his American partner :-)

The prompt, theme, and rules for this posting period can all be found below the cut. Don’t forget, everyone’s stories must begin with the prompt. You can post your stories at any time between now and the 10th of March.

Prompts are posted on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of every month. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Have fun.

The Prompt –

It was supposed to have been a simple milk run. All he’d had to do was place the package in the designated location, and then leave. As he sat in the back of the truck, with his hands cuffed behind him, and his broken nose throbbing, {Napoleon or Illya} began to wonder if it wasn’t time to get out of the spy game.

The Theme –

Your theme this time is - Melancholy

Last Date for Posting –

10th March 2018

If you post your story in the Map Room, or on another site, please ensure that you include a link to it.

Challenge Rules

-Your story must begin with the exact prompt sentence /paragraph.
Occasionally, there will be customisable parts within the prompt. These will be written in red.

For example –

{Your Choice} means you can decide which character to place there. (It may not necessarily be any of the main characters.)

{His/her} can be changed to reflect the gender of your chosen character.

{Name of Place} means you can chose where your story is set.

-The story must be rooted in the Man from U.N.C.L.E. universe and reflect the time in which it is set.

-Stories can be posted on any day from the prompt day to the last day of posting (inclusive).

-Word Count – Minimum 500, with no maximum.

-All stories should be headed with, Your title - ‘The Once Upon a Time Affair’ - the date.

-Tags - please use once upon a time, gen, or gen-mature.

-Section VII is a Gen community, so stories should be appropriate, i.e. nothing explicit or overly-graphic. However, there is the Gen-Mature tag for anything containing violence, torture or mild Het. The Map Room should be used for Het stories, but again, nothing overly graphic.

-Also, as a courtesy to others, please use the LJ Cut, so as not to take up too much room on someone’s feed.
