PadMay 2021 begins this Saturday! Here are the prompts, Daily Padmé participants, and events for the week of May 1 through May 7.
You may answer as many, or as few, as you like and there is no specific format. The prompts are jumping off points and may be considered in universe or meta. Create something new, promote something you’ve previously made, or share a favorite work of someone else’s (with proper credit! Share their post if possible). Post to tumblr, twitter, instagram, ao3, facebook, dreamwidth, youtube, tiktok, your podcast, your website, wherever! There is an AO3 collection available here.
When sharing on social media, tag your posts #PadMay and/or #PadMay2021 Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have, here or on tumblr, twitter, instagram or facebook.
