ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)
This poem was written outside the regular prompt calls, inspired by this video. It also fills "The Heart of the Jungle/Forest" square in my 12-17-14 card for the [community profile] genprompt_bingo fest. It has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. This poem belongs to the series Polychrome Heroics.

WARNING: This poem contains more violence than typical for this setting. The warnings are spoilers; highlight to read. Some Kraken supervillains on an illegal mission are taken completely by surprise. Out of a five-person team, three are killed, one has unknown injuries, and one escapes with emotional rather than physical injuries. This is what can happen when a critter has superpowers and doesn't realize how much damage it's doing. Support from surrounding characters varies. The PTSD on Hoon's character sheet below the poem is from this incident. Consider your headspace and tolerance for violence before reading onward.

Stark Trek

Stark Trek ...

I bet Tony's bedpost has even more notches than Jim's, of infinite diversity in infinite combinations. Also the ship/captain interactions would be even more awesome because of JARVIS.

Let's see now, obviously Bruce is the chief medical officer, but Hulk is security when he comes out. Steve must be the head of security. Bucky is Steve's second, recently recovered after being reported MIA, but now he's got a weirdly powerful metal arm and holes in his memory. Natasha is probably security too. Clint is so much a scout as well as an assassin, I think he'd be in charge of landing parties. (Ship's casualty rate goes down, enemy's goes up.) He might also man the weapons station on the bridge. Pepper would be the communication officer. Betty for science officer ... but she *transferred* from security and if you mess with her or Bruce, she will rearrange your face and ribcage. Phil has the helm, and never gets tired of using "don't distract the driver" lines when the bridge gets fractious. Engineering has some poor, henpecked redshirt because of course Captain Stark came up through that department and if the ship is really hurt, he delegates the bridge and goes down to fix the engine *personally*.  Also 50% of the crew should be female, the way God and Gene Roddenberry intended.

I would read/watch the hell out of this.  Anyone want to write me some?

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer excels at worldbuilding and characterization. For a setting you can play in, see Heliodrax, about shapeshifting scholarly dragons. She also writes in several of my settings. Demifiction is stuff borrowed directly from another world: newspaper or magazine articles, pop songs, restaurant menus, etc. (Seriously, I am now disappointed every time I see a Tastee Freeze sign and the second word is not "Shack.") I just love the depth, diversity, and sensitivity of [personal profile] dialecticdreamer's work.

Silverlace_Vine over on AO3 has a particular knack for writing relationships. My favorite is the Perspective series, which is Tony Stark/Bruce Banner/Steve Rogers ... with a demisexual Steve, which I think really fits him well. The slow build is very gratifying.

Morgana on Noire Sensus specializes in hurt/comfort and slash. She just does an amazing job with Tolkien's elves, capturing their culture and personality with great precision. She also shares my taste for the "ratchet" effect that makes Tolkien such a grandmaster of the hurt/comfort genre, making it possible to crank the tension much higher without wearing out either the characters or the readers. "A Mortal Love" and "Dinîf en Qualen" are favorites.
