[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. 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. That's part of why I'm crossing some of the bingo prompts with other projects, such as the Poetry Fishbowl.

This weekend's [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam is now open on Dreamwidth and LiveJournal.  Our theme is "fashion." Although it was probably meant in reference to clothes, I threw in a few references to fashioning tools.  ;)  Come give us prompts, claim some for your own inspiration, or just watch the fun. 


What I Have Written

"Suspended in Time and Space" -- today's freebie.


From My Prompts

"Stone Point Haiku" by [personal profile] alatefeline looks at fashioning stone tools.


See also "Gaming the System" by [personal profile] alatefeline for thoughts on gender roles.

This is my card for the Survival Bingo fest hosted by [personal profile] dialecticdreamer on [community profile] allbingo.  It's about hardship, endurance, survival, and what comes after.  No minimum word counts or exclusions this time, just an invitation to put your characters in danger and see how they cope (or not). (See all my 2016 bingo cards.)

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.

[personal profile] magibrain has uploaded two new lists in the Bingo Card Maker. If you love playing creative bingo, I recommend that you scroll down that page and chip in to the PayPal button, because this tool makes that activity everso much easier.

These are my copies of the public cards from the original post on [community profile] allbingo, so that I can track my fills here. They looked so yummy that I neither wanted to wait for the September and October fests nor make my own cards immediately. :D (See all my 2016 bingo cards.)

Below is my card for the Round 7, 2016 [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 2016 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.

The  [community profile] crowdfunding  Creative Jam will run June 18-19 with a theme of "changing society around the individual."  Drop by Dreamwidth or LiveJournal to leave prompts or claim some.


What I Have Written

A queer prompt contributed to the free-verse poem "Elbow Room." Antimatter and Stalwart Stan deal with a bigot in the park.
210 lines, Buy It Now = $105

First setup for this appears in "Through Infirmity of the Flesh," in which Travis witnesses another piece of fallout from Warden Daley's poor handling of the prison.  Shiv has a brief appearance too, so you can see some of his reaction to recent challenges.
286 lines, Buy It Now = $143

"When You Were Born to Stand Out" is this session's freebie about Quinn.

A prompt from [personal profile] technoshaman has spawned three poems so far.
 
"Good-for-Nothing Thoughts" takes place the morning after the incident with the experimental manacles, and not long after Jimar's collapse in the cafeteria.  Travis takes Shiv to the prison's Safety Office to discuss the manacles, and on the way there they discover how the warden's foolishness is having serious consequences for him.
610 lines, Buy It Now = $305
 
"Vindication of Right" happens later the same day, in which the warden finally Gets His.
275 lines, Buy It Now = $137.50
 
"To Suffer the Selfishness" takes place a day or few later, as Dr. Bloch decides to take a different tack with the imates who keep peddling drugs inside the prison.  The Peckerwoods in particular find out why it's a bad idea to piss him off.
620 lines, Buy It Now = $310


From My Prompts

[personal profile] alatefeline posted a beautiful untitled poem in response to my prompts, using some beautiful metaphors about individuals and society, progress and challenges.

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. 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 2016 bingo cards.)

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.

The Finish It Bingo fest is running for TWO months on [community profile] allbingo, from May 1-June 30.  This is all about finishing things that are partially written or exist only as fragmentary notes.  (If you start, stop, and then restart something during the fest period that also counts.)  I made two cards, one for partials and one for notes.  I thought I had more partials than this, so if you remember any I've shown you, feel free to remind me.  Also, the center square is supposed to be a freebie that you get for making the card. :D  See all my 2016 bingo cards.

Here is my card for Round Eight of the [community profile] genprompt_bingo fest. This bingo challenge encourages original or fanfic material across all formats and lengths.

Read the rules first.  Browse the Round Ten prompt list.  Request a Round Ten card here. Prompt lists are renewed once a quarter, and you may request a new card then even without bingo on a previous card. (See all my 2016 bingo cards.)

This story fills the "meet the parents / family" square in my 1-4-16 card for the [community profile] trope_bingo fest.

This story belongs to the series Love Is For Children which includes "Love Is for Children," "Hairpins," "Blended," "Am I Not," "Eggshells," "Dolls and Guys,""Saudades," "Querencia," "Turnabout Is Fair Play," "Touching Moments," "Splash," "Coming Around," "Birthday Girl," "No Winter Lasts Forever," "Hide and Seek," "Kernel Error," "Happy Hour," "Green Eggs and Hulk,""kintsukuroi," "Little and Broken, but Still Good," "Up the Water Spout," "The Life of the Dead," "If They Could Just Stay Little," "Anahata," "When the Wheels Come Off," "Against His Own Shield," "Coming in from the Cold: Saturday: Building Towers," and "Coming in from the Cold: Sunday: Shaking Foundations," and "Coming in from the Cold: Monday: Memorial Day."

Fandom: The Avengers
Characters: Tony Stark, Howard Stark, Master Tom, Obadiah Stane, Master Ewan.
Medium: Fiction
Warnings: Howard Stark's A+ Parenting. Child abuse and neglect. Rebellion. Tony Stark's misspent youth. Brief references to underage drinking, sex, and other unwise activities. Obie. Because Obie Is Always a Warning.
Summary: According to canon, Tony Stark is a blacksmith. This is how that happened.
Notes: Craftsmanship. Competence. Gentleness. Trust. Creativity. Friendship.

Read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4.

Here ends "What Little Boys Are Made Of." Thank you all for sticking with the series this far! I love your input. Final thoughts on the story overall are welcome, in addition to reactions on this specific chapter.

I also have a list of favorite photogenic scenes from the whole series for fanartists to consider, partly compiled from audience requests.

A note on feedback: While it's not necessary to comment on every post I make, remember that I don't know who reads/likes things if nobody says anything. Particularly on long stories, I've discovered that I get antsy if there's nothing but crickets chirping for several posts. So it helps to give me feedback at least once, even if it's just "I like this" or "This one doesn't grab me." First and last episodes are ideal if you rarely feel inspired to comment in the middle.
