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.

Underlined prompts have been filled.

Here is my card for the Solo Celebration fest on [community profile] allbingo. It will run from May 1-31.  It features all kinds of satisfying activities and experiences that can be done alone.  Considering my work, Tripping into the Future has an isolated protagonist.  (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. 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.

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. It's a terrific fest if you want general and/or gentle fiction, although people can interpret prompts any way they like. There are many categories, and you can choose to omit up to three. 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.

The March [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam is now open on Dreamwidth and on LiveJournal.  Our theme this month is "highly distinctive people."  Come give us prompts, or claim some for your own inspiration.


What I Have Written

"Trust and Integrity"
I started working last night with a bingo card prompt, and got the free-verse poem "Trust and Integrity." The pastor at the People of Jesus Nondenominational Church and Interfaith Center coaxes Turq into accepting supper from the soup kitchen.

"What You Like Doing Best"
The girl with the candy floss hair inspired the free-verse poem "What You Like Doing Best." Officer Pink presents a workshop on flickering, and talks with a high school student who is interested in doing that sort of thing herself.
266 lines, Buy It Now = $133  SOLD

"Acting to Type"
A prompt for the Capes and Masks project by [personal profile] shiori_makiba  inspired the short and sweet poem "Acting to Type." Villains get to do all kinds of things the rest of us wish we could.
13 lines, Buy It Now = $10

"For the Purpose of Establishing Justice"
This gave me a chance to introduce Blocks, a Super-Intellect with autism who works for SPOON. He is a friend of the Analyst, who you may have already seen in other poems, and they're trying to figure out why a building collapsed. They just don't have quite the same work style as some other people do. "For the Purpose of Establishing Justice" is written in free verse.

"A Significant Threat"

From My Prompts

"Fists and Faces" by [personal profile] clare_dragonfly belongs to the Ursulan Cycle and features two women knights trying to settle in at King Uther's court.

Here is my card for the Villain Bingo fest on [community profile] allbingo. It will run from March 1-31.  It's all about antagonists and their traits.  I have plenty of villains, but not many of my series actually revolve around them.  Path of the Paladins definitely does.  Polychrome Heroics has some fantastic supervillains.  Frankenstein's Family has the hunters, who have appeared only briefly before but pose a significant threat.  See all my 2016 bingo cards.)

Your last two prompts combined in the free-verse poem "Stripping Away the Inessential." Cal isn't just Calliope; Calvin is still active as the secret identity. Sometimes this is a problem.
