Mystery Event Prompt #2

Welcome to Week 2 of the Elysian Fields Mystery Event!

Our Mystery Event is well underway! And authors, you still have until 11:59 pm EDT on July 7 to get your fics in if you want to join in the fun. Once the clock strikes midnight, the checkbox to add your fic to the event will be gone.

Curious to see how the prompts are being addressed? Check out the fics on our Event Page.

But we know what you’re really here for, so we won’t take up any more of your time.


  • Spike eats a blooming onion (as suggested by Maxine Eden)
  • Motorcycle ride (as suggested by Kliomuse)
  • Midnight snacks (as suggested by Avery)


Your fic has a HARD goal of 5 chapters. If you want to write more, great! But that’s sequel fodder, since more chapters should not be added to this fic (even after the event ends). If you want to write less, we get it, but that will likewise disqualify you from the event.

Each chapter MUST be posted within the allotted time window for that chapter to qualify for the event.

Each chapter MUST include that week’s prompt. (This one seems obvious, but better safe than sorry.)

Each chapter MUST be tagged with the prompt and the fulfilling line/paragraph/passage in your chapter End Notes by the time the posting window closes for that prompt (see the example on the Prompt 1 post if you have questions). We will begin checking and disqualifying fics starting Monday, July 8th. If you haven’t added the prompt information to your End Notes yet for Chapter 1, you have until 11:59 pm Eastern Daylight Time (you can check the time on the site under the Shoutbox) on July 7.

No NEW fics for the event will be accepted after July 7.


  • Start: July 8 @ 12:00 am EDT
  • End: July 14 @ 11:59 pm EDT


  • July 12

As always, if you have any questions, you can comment below or reach out to us at

Happy writing, all!
