 See the end in "Part 3" as Haruko finishes his memorial sculpture.  Given T-America's much greater interest in miniatures such as toy soldiers, I suspect this sort of memento is more popular there.

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted Part 1 of her story "Alchemy of Spirit," in which Haruko tries to map his relationship with Abraham in retrospect.  There is a tip button at the bottom, so if you're enjoying these stories, please drop something in.

Below is my card for the [community profile] trope_bingo fest. This fest features fundamental motifs that will be familiar to most readers. It encourages writers to analyze storylines and characters, then reinterpret them in new ways. It is open to all fandoms and to original work; and open to fiction, poetry, art, and all other media. Read the rules. See the list of tropes. They're trying something new with a divided list this time, so pay attention to that. Request a card of your own. All fanworks and original works are allowed, including poetry; poems can be any size, while fiction should be 500+ words. (See all my bingo cards for 2016.)

Original works and poetry allowed
500+ words for fiction, no size requirement for poetry

Dates for Round Six:
Jan 1: Signups open
Jan 15: Bingo posting begins
April 15: Last day to request a first card
April 31: Last day to request a second card
April 31: Last day to post bingos for This round
May 1: Amnesty beings
June 1: discussion period begins
June 31: Amnesty ends
June 31: discussion period ends
July 1: Next round begins

I'm hoping to attract some new readers through this fest. People are starting to show interest in specific prompts. 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 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. Any other ideas for monetizing this? Let me know.

Underlined prompts have been filled.
