This story returns to the main storyline of "Love Is for Children." The first few chapters show Black Widow considering and carrying out a mission, then after that it's pure ageplay. It fills a square in the Plot Challenges Bingo Card 7-4-14:
Situation: Crime pursued by vengeance
Setting: Red Light District
Complication: Everything Is Spiders

I also have a list of photogenic scenes from the whole series for fanartists to consider, a series landing page, and anarchive of images. The perk story "Brotherlove, Brotherlust" Part 3 is still open for participation.

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.

Anonymous commenters: You don't have to specify exactly who you are, but it helps to have a first name or a username from some other service, so I have some idea of who's saying which and how many different "Anonymous" folks there are. You can just type some kind of identifier at the end of your comment.

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has written the story "Buttons, Beads, and Books" for Frankenstein's Family.  It fleshes out the character of Bogdana, the old woman who sells used clothes.  It's a quiet, bittersweet story.

The August Crowdfunding Creative Jam is open on Dreamwidth and on LiveJournal.  Our theme is "Communication & Community."  Come give us prompts or claim ideas to write!

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer is offering 100-word snippets in exchange for prompts.  You may have seen some of her demifiction or fiction floating around.


What I Have Written

"The Wind Traders" -- this month's freebie features sentient trees who communicate over the ocean.

"Father Sun, Mother Moon" / Pætair Sowel, Mater Mehin -- 16 lines, $10 (Polychrome Heroics)
It's taken me over an hour, but I managed to hack out a morning and evening prayer in Proto-Indo-European. It should resemble the reconstructed roots and some later words, but it's not identical -- this would have been one tribal dialect out of many. The verses are in English and PIE, and I counted both because of how long it took. "Father Sun, Mother Moon" is written in free verse, but if you look closely you'll see some alliteration and assonance, and cadence, that helps tie things together.  It's something from Aidan's history.

"The Other Way Around" -- 106 lines, $53 (Schrodinger's Heroes)
Your prompt about Vic inspired the free-verse poem "The Other Way Around," coping with differences in identity and communication between the dimensions. Fortunately he has Quinn to help. 


From My Prompts

"Brittle Words" -- [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has written a snippet about Drew Finn, one of her characters in the Polychrome Heroics setting, as they talk about a wedding.  In the illustration, Drew is the young man in the blue sweater.

"The Green Book" -- [personal profile] dialecticdreamer wrote this snippet about women mercenaries in King Uthyr's court, for the Ursulan Cycle.

"Foreign Perspective" -- [personal profile] dialecticdreamer posted the beginning of a story about Aidan and Hadyn learning to interact with each other.  This is another Polychrome Heroics story.

"Lettered" -- [personal profile] clare_dragonfly wrote this story about Morgan's education and the community of scholars in a monastery.  It belongs to the Ursulan Cycle.

[personal profile] clare_dragonfly  has written another Ursulan Cycle story, "The New Queen."  So far an opening excerpt has been posted, and the rest is available for sponsorship.  Also she presents this illustration for Sir Gwanwyn.

ysabetwordsmith: (Schrodinger's Heroes)
Here is the last of the recently sponsored Schrodinger's Heroes stories written by [personal profile] chanter_greenie.  "Keeping a Logbook" puts a human face on refugees and the people who help them flee in hope of a better life.  That's something we need more of in today's world.

[personal profile] clare_dragonfly has written a story to my prompt about Morgan raising Morwenna, and Morgause being pushy.  I just adore seeing a well-written teen father!  Read the part of "Fatherhood" that I sponsored.  There's still about half of it looking for funds, if anyone wants to chip in.

You can also read "Recruitment Day," about Sir Electra and Sir Brandigen joining the court of King Uthyr.
