Below is my card for the [community profile] trope_bingo fest. This fest features fundamental motifs that will be familiar to most readers. It encourages writers to analyze storylines and characters, then reinterpret them in new ways. It is open to all fandoms and to original work; and open to fiction, poetry, art, and all other media. Read the rules. See the list of tropes. Request a card of your own. Signups will be open until May 15 for first cards, and until May 31 for second cards. Bingo postings may be made through May 31 and amnesty begins on June 1. All fanworks and original works are allowed, including poetry; poems can be any size, while fiction should be 500+ words. (See all my bingo cards.)

I'm hoping to attract some new readers through this fest. A big chunk of the prompts are AU (alternate universe) positing a whole different framework for the characters/storyline. That rather obviously plays to my Schrodinger's Heroes project with its basis in quantum physics, although I may explore other options too. The rest of the prompts are general, suited to various series. That should lend itself well to showcasing a variety of my work.

People are starting to show interest in specific prompts. If you'd like to sponsor a particular square, especially if you have an idea for what character, series, or situation it would fit -- talk to me and we'll work something out. I'll still post some of the fills for free, because I'm using this to attract new readers; but if it brings in money, that means I can do more of it. That's part of why I'm crossing some of the bingo prompts with other projects, such as the Poetry Fishbowl. Any other ideas for monetizing this? Let me know.

Underlined prompts have been filled.

I'm not in a position to sponsor anything, but I've got to say, I am excited to see your takes on role reversal, kid fic, and bets/wagers. Those seem like they would be fun ones. Thinking about bets among the cast of Schrodinger's Heroes has me giggling.

I'm trying to decide on which of a few bingo communities to try my hand at as well. I'm mostly having to resist the urge to sign up for all of them and overwhelm myself. I really want to push myself to be more prolific this year without, you know, making my brain explode.

Thanks for the tips. I'm bad about signing up for too many things because oh no! they're only open for a little while, get ALL the things!

I liked the looks of the prompts for both origfic and genprompt. I particularly like genprompt's inclusion of more open-ended concepts, like colors and weather, and their rotating category (aircraft carrier names this time) seemed like a cute idea.
