Here is my card for Round 5 of the [community profile] ladiesbingo fest. This bingo challenge celebrates the various shades of relationships amongst female characters. It's intended to raise the amount of female-centric literature available. All modes are welcome here: het, slash, femslash, poly and gen. All media/formats are welcome, including poetry; fanfic and original material are both acceptable. Some of the content may be NSFW. Read the FAQ and rules first. The signup post is here. Anyone tired of womenless mainstream entertainment, but not sure what to make? Get a card for inspiration. (See all my bingo cards for 2017.)

I thought this might be an effective way to attract some new readers. It's also useful for developing some of my series with female leads or other characters as a prevailing feature. Consider The Adventures of Aldornia and Zenobia, Hart's Farm, Path of the Paladins, Schrodinger's Heroes, and Walking the Beat. In other series such as An Army of One, Fledgling Grace, and Monster House there's at least one F&F or F/F relationship amongst a more widely scattered cast and plot. Polychrome Heroics is kind of a unique case because 2/6 of Damask (Mira and Maze) are female; and of course it has other kick-ass superheras. Among the sweeter examples is actually the relationship between the supervillain Fortressa and her minion Socket, plus all the rest of the Pit Group are also women.

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. This is a good opportunity for those of you with favorites that don't always mesh well with the themes of my monthly projects. 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.

This is my card for the Pirate Fest Bingo. Since September 19 is Talk Like a Pirate Day, the theme for this month's fest is piracy!  It runs September 1-30.  (See all my 2017 bingo cards.)

For further inspiration:

Kraken is a supervillain organization in Polychrome Heroics.  Their secret subsidiaries include Triton Teen Centers and X Marks the Spot (GPS equipment including locative jewelry).  Capricorn is one of their leaders.

Others in Polychrome Heroics: I have a character who shapeshifts into a Narwhal; she's part of the Hand of Sedna.  Gráinne Nuala is an immortal pirate queen.  The Devil Whale is one of Steel's nicknames.  Compass rose is one of several popular designs used to mark a teleport landing pad.

Act of Pardon is one of the things that will happen in the Maldives after Kraken reveals themselves in Contingency X.  The President offers amnesty to people who want to stop being supervillains and find something more constructive and legal to do.

The Inkseer uses kraken ink for powerful scrying.

The Ocracies include a variety of coastal and seafaring cultures.

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've had a few requests for this and the results have been awesome so far.  This is a good opportunity for those of you with favorites that don't always mesh well with the themes of my monthly projects. I may 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.

Once upon a time, there was a lovely community called [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo. It hasn't been active since 2014. So I launched a fest over on [community profile] allbingo using the same set of prompts from the last round, running August 1-31. These prompts angle toward upbeat content, although creators can do whatever they want with them. This fest encourages people to create and share material focused on what is variously called fluff, schmoop, gentle fiction, light reading, comfort reading, positive thinking, chicken soup for the soul, or anything else that offers a fun alternative to usual run of sex, violence, and angst of modern media. It's open to all fandoms plus original content, and all kinds of material. (See all my 2017 bingo cards.)

Below is my card for the Round 8, 2017 [community profile] hc_bingo fest. This fest encourages the creation of boundary-pushing material that explores what happens when things go horribly wrong and people actually care about each other. Remember, things always go wrong; what matters is how you deal with that. Some of the content may be NSFW. Read the FAQ and rules first. The signup post is here. (See all my 2017 bingo cards.)

I thought this might be an effective way to attract some new readers. It's also useful for developing some of my more danger-prone series.

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. This is a good opportunity for those of you with favorites that don't always mesh well with the themes of my monthly projects.

Warning: One of my readers noted that many of these prompts are "extra dark." I didn't notice it so much because I tend to gauge based on the tone of a given piece. If you're sensitive to just the prompts, you may wish to exercise caution.

[personal profile] magibrain is doing something really new for the September fest in [community profile] allbingo. It runs from September 1-30. The idea is to combine four prompts in a way that enriches your setting and characters. This is not a great match for my usual approach, but I'm willing to give it a try. The rules aim for getting one line (row, column, or diagonal) on each card. I'm also allowing myself the option of using individual prompts as usual. So I've got four chances to get a proper bingo out of this fest. I suspect that my best bet on that will be if any of the lines give someone ideas to prompt for a set of four. (See all my 2016 bingo cards.)

If you'd like to sponsor anything, especially if you have an idea for what character, series, or situation it would fit -- talk to me and we'll work something out.
