[personal profile] siliconshaman has posted "Cards on the Table" which shows Adalina and Ashley talking about recent events, trying to work out their relationship within the team.

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted the story "Traveling Storm."  Eax and Von talk with Bil about finding work for Bil to do, and about Von's upcoming hunt.

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted the story "Building Storm."  It's one of two leading up to something I've sponsored, which will be appearing presently.  In this installment, Eax helps Bil deal with feelings of helplessness, confusing, and uselessness due to assorted disabilities left from Bil's earlier injuries.  It's a wonderful piece of hurt/comfort with excellent sociological aspects too.  <3   This is what science fiction should be.

[personal profile] siliconshaman has posted the story "Marked Cards."  Ashley's teammates are playing with UV-printed cards, which she can't read.  It gets a bit awkward.

 [personal profile] shiori_makiba has posted a brilliant entry in the series Love Is For Children.  "Tunnel Vision" is written half from Nick Fury's perspective and half from Phil Coulson's perspective.  It's a heartbreaking look at what's gone wrong with a great relationship.

I also found this useful for two new warnings which I have added to my repertoire on AO3: "Consider Your Headspace" and "Heed Trigger Warnings."  Those are handy for intense material.  Given how this story's opening line is such a punch in the face, they are apt.

 [personal profile] shiori_makiba has opened her "Thank Muse It's Friday" session with a theme of "It's all fun and games."  This one doesn't run on donations, but prompts, feedback, and signal boosts are all welcome.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer posted the story "Misty Morning, Pocket Full of Stones" as part of the Berettaflies storyline.  It actually goes back farther, though, because Easy City has had a human trafficking problem for a while and that's what this is about.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted the story "Float Like a Leaf, Sting Like a Berettafly" in which Wayne encounters more trouble during his protest.  It is a sequel to "Synchronicity."  <3 T-American sociodynamics.

The April 2016 [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam is now open on Dreamwidth and on LiveJournal.  Our theme this month is "Ideas."  Come give us prompts, or claim some for your own inspiration!


What I Have Written

"Mindweeds" is today's freebie about the immortality of ideas.

A "shapeshifter" bingo square inspired the free-verse poem "Dark Ideas." Hilla and Randie listen to women in the chronic pain support group.
225 lines, Buy It Now = $112.50

From a DW prompt I got the poem "The Fluidity of Inspiration," which is written in unrhymed couplets. It's about liquids and solids, ideas and people.
10 lines, Buy It Now = $5  HOLD

This contributed to the free-verse poem "Maa Yea."    When a woman takes up the cause of protecting children, she ceases to be mortal.
128 lines, Buy It Now = $64

This inspired the free-verse poem "A Confession of Pain." Alicia and Judd visit the Easy City police station to share their past experiences regarding the Spectrum.
372 lines, Buy It Now = $186


From My Prompts

"Lightbulb" by [personal profile] alatefeline explores different forms of perception.
ysabetwordsmith: Cartoon of me in Wordsmith persona (Default)
 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted the story "Hidden Storms" based on my prompt.  Bil and his alien friends discuss etiquette, taboos, reading and writing.  <3  This is what science fiction should be.

Magpie Monday by [personal profile] dialecticdreamer is now open with a theme of "ghost stories and echoes."  Leave prompts, get ficlets!  There are individual and collective perks.

 [personal profile] aldersprig has written the story "Thanks" based on a slave pretending to love her master, but actually hating him.

In case you missed it, I posted a new Love Is For Children story late Friday/early Saturday, so I know some folks may need to scroll back to find that.  "What Little Boys Are Made Of" tells how Tony learns the craft of blacksmithing.  Begin with Part 1.

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted the next part of the Gingerblast ad, as part of the promotion for the Magpie Monday activity on April 11.  You can still leave prompts for that.

This story fills the "meet the parents / family" square in my 1-4-16 card for the [community profile] trope_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," and "Coming in from the Cold: Sunday: Shaking Foundations," and "Coming in from the Cold: Monday: Memorial Day."

Fandom: The Avengers
Characters: Tony Stark, Howard Stark, Master Tom, Obadiah Stane, Master Ewan.
Medium: Fiction
Warnings: Howard Stark's A+ Parenting. Child abuse and neglect. Rebellion. Tony Stark's misspent youth. Brief references to underage drinking, sex, and other unwise activities. Obie. Because Obie Is Always a Warning.
Summary: According to canon, Tony Stark is a blacksmith. This is how that happened.
Notes: Craftsmanship. Competence. Gentleness. Trust. Creativity. Friendship.

Read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4.

Here ends "What Little Boys Are Made Of." Thank you all for sticking with the series this far! I love your input. Final thoughts on the story overall are welcome, in addition to reactions on this specific chapter.

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

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.
