Below is my third card for the 2014 [community profile] hc_bingo fest. This fest encourages the creation of boundary-pushing material that explores what happens when things go horribly wrong and people actually care about each other. Remember, things always go wrong; what matters is how you deal with that. Some of the content may be NSFW. Read the FAQ and rules first.The signup post is here. (See all my 2014 bingo cards.)

I thought this might be an effective way to attract some new readers. It's also useful for developing some of my more danger-prone series.

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. This is a good opportunity for those of you with favorites that don't always mesh well with the themes of my monthly projects. 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.

Underlined prompts have been filled.

ysabetwordsmith: Jump gate showing diamond ring of light (blueshift)
[personal profile] zeeth_kyrah has written a gorgeous, complex story for The Blueshift Troupers.  "Finding the God in the Gate" features a traveler who wants to meet God.  It deals with identity, transformation, sex/gender, beauty standards, the search for enlightenment, mortality, medical ethics, and other deep stuff.

 LJ user Lb_lee wrote "The Genie" based on my prompt, which has been partly sponsored.  It's an interesting twist on the genie trope.

The November Crowdfunding Creative Jam is now open on Dreamwidth and on LiveJournal.  Our theme is "salvaging and repairing people or ideas."  Come give us prompts, or claim prompts to inspire your own work! 


From My Prompts:

"Homesick Day" -- [personal profile] dialecticdreamer offers a bittersweet story about emotional first aid for homesickness, set in Onion City of Terramagne.

"Road Repair" -- [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has written about stopping street harassment.  This is another Onion City story, featuring the return of her construction workers Rudy and Gideon, plus Amada Durante from my storyline about Danso's family.

"Learning to Correct Yourself" -- [personal profile] dialecticdreamer presents an adorable fluff story about a little boy trying to figure out the complex etiquette of asking adults about their personal relationships.  It's another Polychrome Heroics story, set out on the west coast this time, featuring her Finn family.

"A Good Mistake" -- [personal profile] dialecticdreamer made another piece related to the Finns, this time told from the perspective of family friends Jules and Mariset as they try to untangle an ugly bit of professional chicanery.

"Chaotic, Not Evil" -- [personal profile] dialecticdreamer wrote this oddly charming piece about an assassin rescuing a superkid.  (Warning for child exploitation.)

"White Cats Are Evil" -- [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has written a crossover between Polychrome Heroics and Schrodinger's Heroes which directly follows "Chaotic, Not Evil."  This story has been continued, so look for the later installments in the thread on the Creative Jam post and in her DW journal.


What I Have Written:

"Mending Spirals" -- this session's freebie, about genetic ethics in Nine for the Nebula's Heart.

"In Dublin's Fair City" -- 224 lines, $112 (Polychrome Heroics)
Your chaotic prompt inspired the free-verse poem "In Dublin's Fair City." Instead of a Scottish referendum, Terramagne had an Irish one, and Backdraft got dragged into providing fire suppression service for the occasion.  
  
"My Greatest Source of Achievement" -- 168 lines, $84 (Polychrome Heroics)
From this I got the free-verse poem "My Greatest Source of Achievement." Danso deals with an unsupportive teacher, and Hannah suggests exploring church groups. 

"Wolf-Wind" -- 86 lines, $43 (Hart's Farm)
For an extended family, I wrote the free-verse poem "Wolf-Wind." Everyone in Hart's Farm pitches in to take care of the children -- even when there is an unexpected arrival. 

"Clipped" -- 387 lines, $193.50 (Polychrome Heroics)
This inspired the free-verse poem "Clipped."  When a runaway just turned 18 comes to SPOON for refuge, Groundhog struggles to deal with the challenges.  Then Granny Whammy drags Danso into the situation, hoping that he can help.

"Stretched" -- 232 lines, $116 (Polychrome Heroics)
"Stretched" is a free-verse poem that picks up after "Clipped." It shows what happens when Danso gets home after the fiasco at SPOON. Heavy duty hurt/comfort.
(Available for publication after "Clipped"  has been sponsored and posted.)

"Settled" -- 320 lines, $160 (Polychrome Heroics)
The third in this set is the free-verse poem "Settled." It picks up the morning after "Stretched" and shows how Danso feels in the aftermath, along with what Hannah and other folks have been doing to protect him. 
(Available for publication after "Clipped" and "Stretched"  have been sponsored and posted.)

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted Part 1 of "Patchwork Families."  This story follows my stories "To Save Those in Peril Upon It" and "Trouble on the Line."  Aidan meets his new daughter Saraphina.  Lots of fluff with a few bits of chewier plot tension.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted Part 7 of "Clearing the Air" so if you were waiting to read the whole thing, there it is.  Aidan offers to teach Danso how to drive, and a whole lot of unexpected personal stuff comes boiling up.

 "Modern Love" is a wonderful genderqueer fanfic about the changing customs of Discworld dwarves.
ysabetwordsmith: (Schrodinger's Heroes)
 [personal profile] chanter_greenie has posted "Halo" as more-or-less barter for the big stack of poetry I've posted recently.  This is Schrodinger's Heroes fiction set in her Orange!verse series.  Two characters have a permanent platonic partnership holding the world together between them.

For those of you who like plural people, I prompted for a story from LJ user Lb_lee about the Zombie headmate:

I took your prompt and wrote Zombie's Birthday: a series of vignettes focusing on the Zombie doing good work in the system, and the party the system throws of it in exchange. $30

ysabetwordsmith: (Schrodinger's Heroes)
This story belongs to the Schrodinger's Hulk series, a crossover between Hulk and Schrodinger's Heroes. It is a sequel to "Safe Keeping" and "Two Spirits, One Past," and "For the Very First Time." It fills the "original characters" square in my 6-11-14 card for the [community profile] fanbingo fest, and the "sunny" square in the public card for the Birthday Bingo fest.

Format: Fiction
Title: "The Path of the Sun"
Fandom: Hulk/Schrodinger's heroes
Summary: Bruce is not a fan of birthdays, nor of parties in general. Pat is pretty sure he can change Bruce's mind.
Required Warnings: No standard warnings apply.
Notes: Gentle coaxing, laid-back planning, low-key celebration, party food, games, team as family, cottoncandy fluff.

Here ends "The Path of the Sun." Thank you all for sticking with the Schrodinger's Hulk series this far! I love your input. Final thoughts on the story overall are welcome, in addition to reactions on this specific chapter.

I do not have another piece of fanfic to post at this time. I've been crazy-busy the last few weeks and will be through the end of October. Sorry to break off like this, but when I'm overbooked I have to cut the nonpaying projects first. :( Keep an eye on the fiction and poetry tags here in my blog; I'll post more if or when I have some.

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.

Begin with Part 1, Part 2.

 [personal profile] thebonesofferalletters has written "Safe Within These Walls" based on my prompt.  You know that motif I love where somebody swoops in and rescues an abused person?  In this story, the victim is a living house.  Aww!  I am filled with squee.  Also now imagining abuse victims as houses that are thought to be haunted but really just in need of not having rocks thrown through their windows anymore.  This story can be extended if people donate.

This casts the Hulk from The Avengers. So it doesn't match up exactly with the various Hulk movies, and Bruce Banner is played by Mark Ruffalo. The first story in the series goes into alternate-universe mode after the lab accident while Bruce is running from General Ross but before Bruce meets any of the Avengers.

The Schrodinger's Heroes, project features an apocryphal television show supported by an imaginary fandom. It's science fiction about quantum physics and saving the world from alternate dimensions. It features a very mixed cast in terms of ethnicity and sexual orientation. This project developed with input from multiple people, and it's open for everyone to play in. You can read more about the background, the characters, and a bunch of assorted content on the menu page.
