ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)
This story came out of a discussion between me and [personal profile] dialecticdreamer, with contributions from both of us; it's so short, I don't want to muck around trying to divide a price. It also fills "The Classics Freestyle" square in my 6-11-14 card for the [community profile] fanbingo fest. It belongs to the Polychrome Heroics series.

WARNING: This story contains some rude language, weapons of mass destruction, references to crazy supervillains, and super-gizmologists with a shortage of common sense. Consider your tastes before you click through.

[personal profile] thebonesofferalletters is writing "All the Rules Are Different Now (But We Can Still Be the Same)" based on my prompt.  This is a hauntingly beautiful story about the Winter Soldier coming back to being Bucky with some help from Steve.  It's written in second-person, which is always a challenge, but very well done here.  (I've seen a bunch of second-person Bucky stories, and I agree, this is the kind of material that works great with that.)  If you like hurt/comfort you'll probably love this.

This is a standalone story inspired by Norse mythology about Loki and Odin, who were originally blood-brothers and/or lovers depending on which sources you consider. It's a plotty exploration of how Loki tries to right wrongs, in ways that never quite work out as intended, with a layer of kinky erotica wrapped around it. Some parts are silly and others are really intense. This story is being revealed in pieces based on audience participation.

Warnings: Some of these are touchy topics and some are spoilers. Highlight to read them. Bondage (consensual and nonconsensual), torture (nonconsensual), self-injury causing handicap (consensual), dubious consent (various cases), arranged marriage (consensual), cock and ball torture (consensual), verbal abuse (nonconsensual), running away from home, dysfunctional family dynamics, flogging (consensual), crossdressing (consensual), adultery, drunken shenanigans, acquaintance rape, deceit leading to death, murder.

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has written an excellent story, "Keeping Warm," for my Polychrome Heroics series.  It introduces a crew of 'blue plate special' folks who use superpowers for ordinary jobs, in this case rescue work.  When there's a supervillain incident at a local mall, they get called to help, but everything is not as it seems.

Here is a public card that [personal profile] magistrate has posted over on [community profile] allbingo for three-part prompts.  Some of these combinations are amazingly apt, others whimsical and unexpected.  I love these, although I have no idea if I'll actually write any of them, since they don't lend themselves as well to combining with other prompts the way I've been using bingo cards.  But I have no trouble imagining how some of these could fit my settings.  (See all my 2014 bingo cards.)
