A few ground-rules: (note that there are few additions this year)

01. Prompts should have fever as one of their elements (or as an implied part of the prompt, like “appendicitis”). Other than that, be as inventive as you like about the causes and effects of said fever. This is a multi-fandom meme. Prompts involving any characters from any fandom are welcome. Crossover prompts are welcome. RPF/ RPS is also welcome.

02. This post is mirrored on LJ /DW. You may prompt where you like and post where you like. That is, you can take a post from DW and post it to LJ and vice versa--just write FILLED in your subject line when you post a comment with a fill, and, if possible, link to the original prompt. The masterlist will cover both sites.

03. Comment to this post on either LJ or DW with your desired fandom, characters or pairings, and a prompt. All genres/pairings are welcome. You can also state your desired rating, though you don't have to (some people like sex with their fever fic, some people don’t, even for couples--some people don’t care)
Example A: “Hawaii Five-O. Team or Steve/Danny. Steve has a bullet wound that gets infected. Ninja SEAL that he is, he refuses to take it easy, making problems for the team as they try to track down an arms dealer. Any rating.”
Example B: “Supernatural: Sam/Dean. Dean has the chills and there is cuddling. R and higher rating, pls.”

04. You can leave as many prompts as you like, but one prompt per comment, please. If you've got a few, comment with each separately.

05. Your prompts can be as short or as detailed as you’d like.

06. Scroll through the comments and when/if you find a prompt you like, write a fic in reply to the comment.

07. More than one comment-fic response to a prompt is totally acceptable, and in fact encouraged. The more fic, the better!

08. Art submissions are very much accepted too!

09. When replying to a prompt with your comment-fic, put ‘FILLED’ in your subject line and then anything else you want, ie: a title if you have one/part numbers/rating. It’s not a big deal if you forget this step, but it will make it easier for people to find your fic, and for me when I’m compiling the masterlist. Consider including warnings if the fic features non-con or non-canonical character death.

10. I have enabled anonymous posting, but I am screening anonymous comments, and I won't unscreen anything rude or disrespectful of authors, characters or prompts. I also reserve the right to delete named comments that are rude or disrespectful.

11. NO SPOILERS for unaired episodes, please. If you're prompting something from a recently aired episode, please be courteous and note that there may be spoilers before you get to the main part of your request.

12. Likewise, no character bashing, or rudeness in general.

13. Do feed your authors! They’re awesome.

14. If you want to advertise this, that’s fantastic! It would be really appreciated. There are some banners here, but if anyone feels like making more for newer fandoms, that would be awesome.

FAQ:

•Yes, if your fic gets too long for a comment-fic, you can comment with the link to it at lj/dw/AO3.
•Because it bears repeating - yes, art is more than welcome as well as fic.
•As for a timeframe - this post will be open for prompting at least until June 17. There’s no exact timeframe, because I play it by ear and don’t close it until I see it’s starting to slow down. In any case, it will stay open indefinitely for new comment-fics and comments/feedback.

Any other questions? Feel free to PM me.

Here are the master lists for 2011 and 2012 if you want to do some reading to get in the mood!

Here is a handy and sensible guide to fever in adults -- but, hey, it's fic, realism is always optional ;)

NB: There is an AO3 collection for Running Hot. If you want to post a fic your write to the collection, just follow the link and click on "post to collection." If you have a fic on AO3 you wrote last year for the meme, you can edit the "does this belong to a collection" box to have it added to the Running Hot collection.

NB: Don't forget there are prompts at both LJ and DW. The 2013 Masterpost is here on LJ and here on DW

PROMPT AWAY AND HAVE FUN!
  • Prompt - Fantastic Four/X-Men

    Johnny Storm(Human Torch) /Bobby (Iceman)

    When Johnny gets sick/delerious he can't control his flame - how far does Bobby have to go to keep him from incinerating himself into oblivion? (Okay, that's kind of dramatic...because I'd totally go for a much lower-key of Bobby using his ice hands to do a sponge bath thing...)

  • Prompt: Lewis

    Robbie has the 'flu and is alternating between running a fever and feeling cold and shivery. James is nursing him. Cue delirium-driven demands for James to undress Robbie/apply ice cubes/lie on top of him to warm him up etc etc
    • Re: Prompt: Lewis

      Working on this! It'll be on my LJ when I'm ready to post, but just a teaser for now:

      ~~~~~~~~~~~

      He lets himself in, and very quickly finds out why. Lewis is on the sofa, still in his work suit. He’s half-lying, half-sitting, as if he just couldn’t hold himself upright any more. Although he’s breathing, he’s clearly not awake, and just as clearly not in the full bloom of physical health. The side of his face that’s visible is flushed, and when James lays the back of his hand against Lewis’s forehead he feels cool moisture. Definitely fever of some sort.

      Right. First aid kit. If there isn’t one in Lewis’s bathroom, James has one in the car – standard police issue. But Lewis is well prepared, and a couple of minutes later James is sliding a thermometer carefully into his boss’s mouth.

      38.5. Not dangerously high, but still above normal. And, judging by the way Lewis has evidently collapsed on his couch, he’s exhausted – after a fairly easy day at work.

      The cough starts as James is rinsing the thermometer, adding to the list of symptoms which, he’s pretty sure, are indicating flu rather than a mere cold. He heads back to the sofa and crouches down in front of his governor. “Sir? You need to be in bed.” The only response is a rather pathetic groan. “All right, sir,” James says. “Not expecting you to do it alone. Come along, up you get.” He slides an arm underneath Lewis’s shoulders and half-lifts, half-pushes him up into a seated position.

      It takes several attempts to get Lewis onto his feet, and from there it’s a lengthy and difficult progression to the bedroom; while Lewis has just enough motor skills and consciousness to shuffle along at James’s urging, he’s barely able to hold himself upright. “I sincerely hope you remember this when it’s time for my next performance review, sir,” James murmurs as, finally, they reach the bed and he can lower his governor gently down.

  • Prompt: Elementary (Joan, Sherlock)

    "Sherlock, you're delirious, you need to shut up. And take that koala picture off the clue wall, it's freaking me out."
  • (no subject) - marieincolour
  • (no subject) - marieincolour
  • White Collar: sex pollen (this was inevitable :P)

    Peter/Neal. NC-17.

    There was an epic fill for round II with poor Peter getting exposed and Neal lending him a helping hand.

    How about turning the tables now? Neal gets exposed and there is no one else around except Peter. But when it's a question of saving Neal's life, there is nothing Peter wouldn't do, right? :D
  • Prompt - DCU (Robin, Batgirl)

    Dick gets the flu when Batman is away on a mission, and Babs keeps him company.

    (Bonus points for Alfred or Ace the Bat-Hound)
  • White Collar: Neal gets poisoned

    Any rating, gen or Peter/Neal.

    Someone from Peter's past is seeking revenge and sends him a letter soaked with poison (or finds another way to smuggle poison to casa Burke or the FBI office). But instead of Peter it is Neal who gets exposed. Now Peter needs to do everything in his power to save Neal before it is too late.
  • Prompt: White Collar (s1)

    Set in the first season when Peter reminds repeatedly to Neal he can send him back in prison anytime.
    Neal spikes a fever at the office while he is working on a file Peter asks him to read. Neal can't concentrate on his work. When Peter asks him if he has found something in the file, he freaks out. Out of his mind because of the fever, he thinks Peter is going to send him back in prison because he is useless.
    • FILLED Re: Prompt: White Collar (s1) (1/3)

      [This is rough but I've been having trouble writing, and I hope this helped to get me out of my block. :)]

      If anybody asked, which nobody ever did, Neal would be happy to boast that he has an excellent immune system. Even when he was regularly flying all over the world, even when he was stuck in the petri dish of the prison system, even living in a population-dense city like New York, he almost never got sick. When other people were miserable and pink-nosed from the latest bug, Neal would almost always be fine, even without resorting to Mozzie's paranoid methods of germ-avoidance. As far as Neal could tell, his immune system would spot an intruder and slam it down, much like Diana would an armed suspect. Even if he did get sick, the whole thing would be over quickly, and that worked just fine for him. Most of the time.

      The downside was that, on those rare occasions when the seasonal bug was big enough and bad enough to avoid instant death at the hands of Neal's immune system, the experience of being the battleground where his body enthusiastically fought off the illness wasn't good. Every time, he thought it would be no big deal. Every time, he was wrong.

      ~~~

      Flu season came around as it always did, and this time Clinton Jones was patient zero. He got stuck corralling small children at his nephew's birthday party, and three days later Peter sent him home when he fell asleep at his desk with his head on the keyboard. Peter was next, and from that point on the office was never more than halfway staffed. By the time one person was back in the office, tired but basically recovered, another person would be struggling to get through the day with a headache, a sore throat, and a growing fever before they finally gave in and went home.

      "You still haven't had this thing?" Peter asked on the day he came back in to work, grumpy and worn-looking.

      "Guess I'm just lucky." Neal grinned and shrugged, and Peter actually growled at him like an aged dog. It was good to have him back.

      Peter went up to his office to catch up on his backlog of work, and Neal found himself nearly alone in the bullpen. The few agents who were healthy enough to work were out taking care of cases, and the few administrative staff members who were in the office were struggling to keep up with several people's work. Neal was sipping the coffee that he hoped would make him feel more awake when an e-mail came through from Peter.

      Whatever you're working on, I need you to look at this first. It's a priority per Hughes so look at the file and see if you can make any sense out of the data in the attached spreadsheet. I'll check in with you when I'm caught up but I have a meeting so it might be a while. Thanks.

      The e-mail contained a link to the case file as well as an Excel attachment, and Neal settled in to read up on the case, a complex financial con with elements of fraud and blackmail. Reading between the lines, Neal got the impression that the victim of the con was connected to the FBI so Peter's note that it was a priority from Hughes was probably putting it lightly. If they didn't come through on this one, there would be some seriously negative attention from higher up, and Neal could already smell the stale odor of his old cell. In his months working with Peter, it had been made abundantly clear to Neal that he was at constant risk of being sent back, and this could be the case to send him back.

      If the White Collar division needed a scapegoat, he'd be driven into the hills for sure. If they needed a sacrificial lamb, he'd the one at the edge of the knife. The animal metaphors were unsettling, so Neal finished off his coffee and tried to put the future out of his mind so he could focus on the case at hand.

  • H5O Prompt

    All the team members are sick and cuddles of all kinds start up.
  • Prompt: White Collar (Sick!Neal, drugged!Neal) Too much meds.

    Neal is sick and everybody wants to give him medicinal drugs. He is confused because of the fever and takes anything that is given to him. So Peter ends up with a very drugged Neal.
