Welcome to podfIDIC's first seed script!

Each week during the month of January we'll post a seed script in three iterations, structured differently so you can choose the starting place that works best for you.

You are free to use any of the versions or a combination thereof — they're a seed from which you can build, not limits to fence you in. You are free to change all of the blanks or none of them; to add, remove, or alter any of the words in any of the versions (even if they are not blanks); and to build from the seed in any direction. For just a few examples of the possibilities, see six works from our example seed.

Version 1 has blanks left for you to fill in to tell the story.

Version 2 builds on this, giving several different possibilities of what you might choose (though you’re always welcome to choose none of the ones given and create your own!).

Version 3 offers the most support, with the blanks from Version 1 filled in (although you're still welcome to change the words). This is designed such that it can function as an open scene, and it might especially appeal to those who want to use primarily performance create their interpretation of the seed.

Version 1

[Character] accepted the cup of tea and took a sip. "That's an unusual choice."
"I thought you might [reaction] it."
[Character] [action].
They looked at each other.
"It tastes a bit like [flavor]."
"Yes." [Character] [action]. "I thought it was [description], considering the circumstances."
[Character] [action].

Version 2

[Character] accepted the cup of tea and took a sip. "That's an unusual choice."
"I thought you might [miss / detest / appreciate / notice /______ ] it."
[Character] [fell over / bowed / raised an eyebrow / plonked down /______ ].
They looked at each other.
"It tastes a bit like [vanilla / desperation / cyanide / love /_______ ]."
"Yes." [Character] [smirked / inclined their head / shrugged /_______ ]. "I thought it was [festive / a terrible idea / auspicious / a good reminder /_______ ], considering the circumstances."
[Character] [choked on their tea / burst out laughing / started to cry / reached out with a smile /_______ ].

Version 3

[Character 1] accepted the cup of tea and took a sip. "That's an unusual choice."
"I thought you might enjoy it."
[Character 2] sat down.
They looked at each other.
"It tastes a bit like almonds."
"Yes." [Character 2] smiled. "I thought it was appropriate, considering the circumstances."
[Character 1] coughed.

Once you've created a fanwork based on the seed, we ask that you upload it to the podfIDIC: Seed 1 collection at AO3. The collection will remain unrevealed until Saturday, Jan. 10 at 1200 pm EST. At that point it will be revealed and Seed 2 will be posted.

However, if you're still creating, that's awesome! The collection will remain open for new works until Jan. 31 at 1200 pm EST, at which point it will be closed and the Master List of all fanworks created for podfIDIC will be posted.

I was on an airplane today daydreaming about possible scenarios that would be fun to match with this script, and I have 3 so far that I am super excited about doing myself, but here are two I thought of that I am not personally doing but would LOVE to see someone else's take on:

-The Princess Bride, Vizzini and Westley
-Sweeney Todd, any two characters

I would love a Pretty Little Liars version of it! I feel like there are so many opportunities for this kind of quiet moment between all the craziness they go through together. And there are so many great character combinations that would work!

(I am more than a season behind where the show is currently.)

Also there could be a great Avatar story in there, of either The Last Airbender or Legend of Korra flavor.

...replying to myself because oh man I have a great Legend of Korra idea now that I may try to make happen! Spoilery for the end of the series so I will keep the details to myself. But yay ideas!

So interesting that the Pretty Little Liars scenarios in your heads are sweet quiet moments between the craziness. That sounds AMAZING, but I'd kept thinking of Pretty Little Liars scenarios where somebody is drugging/poisoning somebody else. It'd be kind of amazing for the same person to do both (or for different people to do both!) I'd take that one on for sure, but I'm still mid-S2 and don't feel like my info about the characters and relationships would be up to date enough.
