[personal profile] siliconshaman is launching a new crowdfunding project, "Monthly Monday Muse Bait."  The first session is calling for theme suggestions as well as ficlet prompts.  You can ask for established settings -- he's one of the folks writing in Terramagne -- or something new.  Donations may be used to extend your or someone else's ficlet, or get another prompt written.

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted the story "Divided Path."  Drew struggles to deal with emotional overload after visiting his sister in the hospital.  This grew in the telling, so the numbers are a bit mixed up.  There are 6 parts and it's all posted now.  Begin with Part 1.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer has continued the storyline about Aida's diving incident.

"Sawyer's Fall" covers the incident from Brody's perspective.  (Asshole warning.)

"A Storm of Consequences" begins the followup showing Aida's family response.  This one has 8 parts.

"Better Than Before" shows the other interns talking about what went wrong.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted more stories in Polychrome Heroics.

"Changing World" is a far-future ficlet about Aidan and his family.  Consider this a potential  future rather than a guarantee.

"Catastrophe!" is about a diving incident in the Maldives.

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted some new stories.

This "pending" story shows what happens when Charles gets sick with only his son Samuel in the house, and gets a taste of Maldivian social support.

"Learning to Relax" features Cash with a couple other folks in Mercedes, and a beautiful example of upstanding.

I actually have several people writing fanfic of my original work. Two of them have written book-length contributions to Polychrome Heroics.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer tends to weave in stories with my own.

[personal profile] siliconshaman is more prone to branching off.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer is running Magpie Monday today, with a theme of "the limits of villainy."  Are you sick and tired of heroes who act like villains?  Of villains who seem to have no limits whatsoever?  Of stories where all the characters are heinous and unlikable?  Get your alternatives here!

Day 7

In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. Arts and crafts. Draft a critical essay about a particular media. Put together a picspam or a fanmix. Write a review of a Broadway show, a movie, a concert, a poetry reading, a museum trip, a you-should-be-listening-to-this-band essay. Compose some limericks, haikus, free-form poetry, 5-word stories. Document a particular bit of real person canon. Take some pictures. Draw a stick-figure comic. Create something. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so

Well, this ran slow due to me having a ton of fishbowl work to do, but I managed to squeak out something. It's tough going because Hulk is working through some serious trauma from the fast, but he's found a clever way to do that and Uncle Phil is awesome.
