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.

The July 2016 [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam is now open on Dreamwidth and on LiveJournal. This month's theme is "Good and Evil." Come give us prompts, or claim some for your own inspiration.


What I Have Written

"Under Her Coat"
Your wing prompt inspired the free-verse poem "Under Her Coat." A strange woman appears in Bluehill, and Turq doesn't know what to make of her.
130 lines, Buy It Now = $65

A prompt about evil as action inspired the free-verse poem "Where All Tears End," posted as today's freebie.

"In the Darkness of the Soul"
The prompt about your own good inspired the free-verse poem "In the Darkness of the Soul." Turq struggles with nightmares from his past.
152 lines, Buy It Now = $76

"An Ugly Shadow Cast by Myself"
Your spectrum prompt inspired the free-verse poem "An Ugly Shadow Cast by Myself." Aquariana and Irene talk to Steel in the aftermath of the trial, regarding the last of the Japanese whalers. Steel has a lot of survivor guilt to work through.
180 lines, Buy It Now = $90

"A Shadow the Length of a Lifetime"
This inspired the free-verse poem "A Shadow the Length of a Lifetime." No matter how old Alicia is, some damage never really heals. (Warning for graphic child molestation.)

From My Prompts

Your title prompt "All That Is Necessary for Evil", with additional inspiration from your prompts "Good people cleaning up the mess after evil people" and "Neutrality can do a lot more damage than evil", spawned a poem of that title, sponsored by my Patreon patrons.

ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)

If you're looking for more stories in which Steve Rogers actually acts like himself, I highly recommend "Off the Map."  Steve's vacation goes astray into Latveria.  Do not read with your mouth full.

Per multiple requests, I have updated "Rotten Fruit" to include a scene showing Hulk reciting social stories.  I also added another fans's perspective on kibbutzim  in the notes.

Yes, it is okay to point out flaws in my work.  It's also illuminating.  You know why this one was short, less connected to the larger work, left out an important scene, and was generally less polished than usual?  Because I wrote it fast, all in one day; revised it later in the day; then posted it the same evening.  It wasn't planned.  It was a response to something that happened at Marvel.  How I usually work is that I write a story and then let it sit a while before I revise and share it.  That allows time for me to forget what I meant  to write and see what I actually typed.  It's also easier to catch places where I need to delete or add something.  In the case of response fiction, speed is of the essence, but it does come at a cost.

I have decided that it's time for another round of "Poke a Bigot in the Eye." This time, it was inspired by Marvel declaring that Captain America is a Hydra agent, which I mentioned recently.

I've been thinking about Marvel's latest issue of fail. Clearly somebody ought to do something about this. Well, I'm Somebody.  If you want to do something about this nonsense too, I have a list of suggestions.

EDIT 5/31/16:  [personal profile] shiori_makiba has written two lovely poems that follow my story "Rotten Fruit." "A Good Man" shows Phil's musing about what makes a villain and what makes a hero, while waiting for rescue. "It Ain't So" features Tony helping to clean up the aftermath, in which he and Steve explain about bullies.

EDIT 6-1-16: I have added a scene about Hulk reciting social stories, and a new reference to kibbutzim.

This story fills the "caught in the act" square in my 5-1-16 card for the Solo Celebration 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," "Coming in from the Cold: Sunday: Shaking Foundations," "Coming in from the Cold: Monday: Memorial Day," and "What Little Boys Are Made Of."

Fandom: The Avengers
Characters: Steve Rogers, Phil Coulson, Hulk, HYDRA!Nick Spencer, Nick Fury, Clint Barton, Tony Stark, JARVIS
Medium: Fiction
Warnings: Defamation. Betrayal. Anger management issues. Rebellion. Ethical dilemmas. RPF. #sayitaintso. #nickspencerishydra.
Summary: A more plausible explanation for that issue of Captain America in which Steve is portrayed as a HYDRA agent.
Notes: Heroism. Team as family. Competence. Friendship.

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.

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