11_reasons was a theme community with a list of prompts designed to produce fills explaining the reasons for something. There were 293 entries and 693 comments posted to the community since 2006.


Welcome to Eleven Reasons :) Yes, we are another low-pressure writing themed community, similar to and inspired by 30_ways & 52_flavours, among others. Although our sets are limited to producing only 1 or 11 entries, we have a wider scope of the 'General Theme' for the comm. Read on!

Write a fic that enumerates and/or explains eleven various reasons for a specific 'general theme and/or idea'. Confusing? Not really, here's how you do it:

1st - Decide on a 'general theme/idea' to which you will write your 11 Reasons about (for a character or characters in a fandom/series); you have free rein on this and can be as creative as you want. For example, for a one character fic-set, you could write something like "Eleven Reasons Shinomori Aoshi broods"; or for a character-pairing fic-set, you could write "Eleven Reasons why Winry likes Al"; and so on.


3rd - Write your fic/s following each prompt as the MAIN FOCUS, thus explaining and/or defining the 'reason' behind it. Remember, just one prompt without mixing it together with another. The order of writing & the length of each is up to you, go as your Muses please.
