Might as well get the ball rolling...

1. A fool and an assassin are forced to work together. Hijinks ensue... and love?

2. "Millennium hand and shrimp" actually means something.

3. Someone steals the Ankh. Yes, the river.

4. Rincewind falls down the wrong trouserleg of time.

5. Annagramma Hawkin saves the day. Somehow.

6. Esme and Mustrum's backstory. < I really need to read this one.

7. Ponder Stibbons meets Galileo.

Some prompts from last year that might find fresh creators/new ideas (hope that's okay):

Prompt: an episode in the life of Lord Vetinari before he became Patrician - anything from more about the Assassins School to the events of Night Watch to how he took over as Patrician, or else something not mentioned in canon.

Prompt: where the hell is Muntab?

Prompt: Gytha Ogg and her husband. Any husband. Any time.

Prompt: Something shiny and new comes to Ankh-Morpork (the bicycle? roulette? Kung-fu? You decide.) How does the city respond? (Bonus points for contributions from Moist, Dibbler, Vimes and/or the Dean.)

Prompt: Where does Cherie Littlebottom shop now? Welcome to the world of dwarf couture.

Prompt: a character from another reality appears in Discworld. To be precise, on the table in the Great Hall at Unseen University in the middle of one of the more important meals of the year. Life ensues. (Crossover with whatever you like. The Jossverse or SPN would make me happy, but so would many other alternatives.)

And a couple of fresh ones:

Prompt: We've seen a Midsummer Night's Dream and MacBeth in Discworld. How about another Shakespeare play in Discworld? The Tempest, maybe, or Hamlet...

Prompt: AU: Carrot becomes King.

Prompt: The Disc has its secret policemen. Show us more about Andre (Maskerade) or another undercover detective of your choice.

Ghah, I didn't realize today was the last day!

Art Prompts:

-Night Watch art of any sort, bonus points for Reg Shoe and/or Rosie Palms

-Reaper Man art (either the 'What can the harvest hope for' scene or Death dancing with Miss Flitworth

-Small Gods art (St. Ungulant on his wheel or a scene from the desert)

Fic Prompts:

-Doctor Who crossover of any sort, preferably the Fourth, Fifth or Eighth Doctor (from the Eighth Doctor Adventures book series)

-the adventure where the Reverend Mightily Oats and the witch Agnes Nitt traverse Uberwald, bringing with them peace, knowledge, and a profound respect for the uses of a double-headed axe.

-some sort of history on the reformation of the Omnian Church and the origins of the explanatory pamphlets system of flock conversion

-Constable Visit, Constable Dorfl, and Constable Shoe team up to investigate a string of minor and inexplicably bizarre misdemeanors against the differently alive

-some sort of epic expansion on the L-Space Librarians

-And in honor of the occasion, a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy crossover of any sort, preferably involving Fenchurch in some way.

I've added the prompts to the post, even though prompt collection ended almost eight hours ago. ;)
