Welcome to the first ever round of [community profile] historyfest, a prompt fest for historical rpf!

Rules, Information and Timeline

  • Prompting opens March 1.
  • Prompting closes March 15.
  • Filling closes April 30.
  • You may fill as soon as a prompt is posted, but an organised list of prompts will be posted after prompting ends.
  • All countries and historical periods are welcome. (For the purposes of this fest, history will be defined as pre-1950.)
  • Gen, het, slash, femslash and poly are all encouraged, as are all genres and ratings.
  • You may post anonymously if you wish. This includes both prompts and fills.
  • There is no minimum level of historical significance to be included in this fest. People can be politicians, generals, writers, artists, actors, jesters, monarchs, philosophers, scientists, spouses, parents, siblings, children, or merely someone who once did something odd that happened to be written about.
  • Don't be an asshole.


  • One prompt per comment, but you may leave as many comments as you like.
  • You may prompt 'crossovers' between people who never met or weren't alive at the same time.
  • To allow for easy categorisation, please title the thread in the following format: Country, Century
  • If the people involved belong to more than one country or century, please list both, e.g. Ancient Egypt/Ancient Rome, 1st Century BCE; China, 2nd-3rd Century; Britain, 1st Century/16th Century


  • Fills may consist of fic, art, mixes, or whatever you feel inspired to make.
  • There is no minimum or maximum length or size.
  • When posting, leave your fill as a reply to the original prompt. Make sure to change the thread title to "Fill: Title of Work, Medium, Country, Century, People/Ship, Rating" so people know you've posted something.
  • For fic, you may paste your work into the comment itself, or leave a link to where it's hosted elsewhere.
  • For art or other multimedia works, please provide a link to where it is hosted rather than embedding it.
  • You may fill your own prompts.
  • Multiple fills for the same prompt are allowed.
  • Please provide suitable warnings.
  • There is an AO3 collection here if you'd like to use it.
