Okay, we've changed our minds. Originally, we were going to do claiming, but some of these prompts are way awesome and we want lots and lots of fic to come from them. So, new rule!

You don't have to claim anything. Just pick a prompt, or several prompts, and write us some fic! You can post as many fics as you want, as long as they're all based off of a prompt on this list. Sound good?

A few more rules:
- All fic must be a minimum of 500 words.
- Fic can be posted directly to the community or linked from somewhere else.
- All fic, direct or cross-posted, needs to have a header. The exact format is up to the author, but should include a pairing and a rating, at the very least.
- If you post your fic directly to the community, make sure to use an LJ-cut.

I think that's all! Have some prompts!

The prompts are alphabetized by the character whose name comes first, even if they weren't listed first in the prompt. (For example, [Peter, Nathan, Claire] fic is listed under Claire, not Peter.) Prompts involving non-Petrellies are listed underneath the ones only involving family members. (For example, [Nathan, Claire, Mr. Bennet] is listed beneath [Nathan, Claire, Peter].)
