    @ aliens.
    OK! Let's get some of these down!
    -“I was rehearsing lines for the romantic lead and I didn’t see you through that window, I had no idea that YOU were playing my romantic interest and now I can’t remember a single line” Dunno who with, but maybe Jadekat?
    -“I’m a photography student and the light was just shining off your hair so perfectly I just HAD to take a picture and now you’ve found it online, I’m in trouble now” au JohnDave?
    -“our mutual friend dropped out of this trip at the last minute, so hi i guess we’re spending the next two weeks together”au No idea on this one.

    But ye. There are some ideas. What do you think?

    The second one is perfect for JohnDave! Plus, the little bit you told me irl would work so well for those two.

    I can see the third one working for Eridan and Sollux. Maybe Feferi was the mutual friend and she backed out just to set the two up bc she knows they have feelings for one another? I think that take on it would be really cute and at first they'll try to deny their feelings, but in the end they'll love one another, lolol.

    I'm not sure who the first would work the best with, but I'm not really seeing JadeKat :/

    I just feel like Karkat or maybe even John would be suitable for the first one, but idk who to pair them with. :c
    OOOOh! I like the idea of Eridan and Sollux for the last one! I think that'd be really cute~ Do you have any other prompt sites or anything that I can take a look at?

    hi! how are you today? i also thing no '&' sign in a title is a bit ridiculous. i mean, in one of the stories my friend and i are working on, the coffee shop has a '&' in the title. lol it isn't the title of the story, but... it literally has that symbol in it's name.

    Hey, just popping in to address the ampersand issue. Ampersands aren't allowed in story content in general as they are classed as logograms and are not punctuation. However, it does work on a case-by-case basis: if it's the name of a company or shop (as discussed above with the coffee shop example) then it would be allowed as it's part of a stylised title. I think there's been a bit of confusion with the way that it's been portrayed -- we're not saying you can't use them at all. We're saying that if it's being used to replace 'and' in the general story content, then it would technically be classed as being grammatically incorrect. Ampersands in titles are also allowed.

    Just thought I'd pop in to clear up any confusion. If anybody has any more questions, feel free to PM me and I'll try and help out as much as possible. Cute

    Basically! I had to correct my story title and "and" ruins it. I was mad, lol!!

    @ little tea-pot;
    It's not allowed in the titles either. I had "You're Cold & I Burn" and I had to correct that... I'm not mad at all but it just seems a bit silly. I've seen so many stories that include links in the chapters, but god forbid I use ampersands.

    Allowed in titles? That's weird then because I had to correct a title because I used an ampersand. File

    Yes, they're allowed in titles. If errors in story titles are noticed by the story editors, we would normally edit those as we have access to them. Were you advised to correct the title yourself by an editor? Are you able to PM me about it and I'll have a look into it? I'd rather not clog up this thread with anything other than the information I posted above.

    Hopefully you get to change it back. :/ The whole thing is silly, but I'll drop it. So how are you today?

    @ gatesguardian.
    Moving on from the ampersand issue, how are you doing today? :3

    You could do John and Karkat shipped together for the first one. I think it'd be cute to see them falling for one another because of a play!tehe

    I know of otpprompts, but I've seen you looking through that one. As of right now, I don't have anything else. Sad

    Oooh! Whatre you watching on Hulu? Anything good? And I'm ok. Still kinda tired from my nap after work, but awake enough to be productive!

    @ aliens.
    Yeah, I've already got otpprompts... But maybe JohnKat could work. Maybe the theatre teacher decides to go Shakespearian and cast all males? But doesn't tell anyone? *shrugshrug*

    ALL OF THEM! Just fuck me up, tbh. I like the things we've been talking about and I'm thinking about writing something with Jake as the over-protective older brother and Jade getting super annoyed but secretly thanking him.

    Also, while I know the seriousness of the situation, I almost kept laughing at the whole,

    "So why are you in here?"
    "I tried to kill myself by eating a candy bar..."
    "...What?"
    "I'm deathly allergic to nuts."
    "Oh, right."

    lmfao
