Basically so I can say "Hurry up, you guys, I can write for two fandoms and I am the last person on both of them!"

Only if you use it to write the Empress a Chant Royal! (Or perhaps a pastourelle with herself as the starring role ;) )

I see now that the surest way to shut down a Last Fic'r rally is to post a word that has TOO MANY possible good ficlets for it. Words that are highly specific or perhaps even unobvious seem to draw much quicker responses.

"Lollipop" or "Paint" would probably keep the momentum going much better than "Love" or "Sacrifice"

Well, there's also the fact that I can't follow myself, which is what's happening in the DH thread.

I am coming up so blank for dumplings. *sigh* And there could be something really cute written for that! :wall:

Okay, I got BSG, but Dollhouse is stalled due to lack of writers. snowybaby, where you at?

With just less than 3 days to go I have the current count at:

BSG: 8, with the current word as "ghost"
Dollhouse: 4, with the current word as "tree"
SCC: 6, with the current word as "flesh"

Don't make ME have to write a Dollhouse ficlet. I've never seen the show so there's no telling how bad I'd mess it up. ;)

I have an idea for tree, but, alas, I chose the word so can't go. Is it wrong to just repost my ghosts prompts from a previously written story ;)

As long as Pierre doesn't have a ghost masterpiece about to be posted, I say 'yes.' I don't think we should count it toward the fandom total, though.

Or we could swap the words all around and see if that inspires anyone.

wait a sec... "ghost"?
Give me one day. Maybe I'll be temporarily able to overcome my BSG-why-hast-thou-failed-us mood.

Last Fic'er Standing Redux 2009 is now closed. The winner is Battlestar Galactica, with nine fics, second was the upstart challenger, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, with six, and Dollhouse brings up the rear with five.

Congratulations to all who participated!

The fic compilations are now available in the respective threads and will be posted in the ATS livjournal.
