[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!

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.

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.

Here is my card for the Dark Fantasy Bingo fest.  This fest will run from January 1st through January 31.  It focuses on the creepy and phantasmagoric motifs in storytelling.  (See all my 2017 bingo cards.)

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've had a few requests for this and the results have been awesome so far.  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.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge Day 1

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Love Is For Children series
The first story is "Love is for Children." The Avengers use nonsexual ageplay to recover from all the horrible things that have happened to them. This is my most popular fanfic series, which many fans use as comfort reading. Even if you don't normally like ageplay, it's recommended because it doesn't read like most ageplay, and many readers who aren't into ageplay have enjoyed this one.

Frankenstein's Family series
The first poem is "Victor(ia) Frankenstein." I call this series gothic fluff because it uses a lot of very dark elements in mostly lighter ways. It tells the story of Victor Frankenstein as a transman in a queerplatonic relationship with Igor, and their son Adam whom they made from spare parts.

Schrodinger's Heroes shared world
This began with someone proposing ideas for acefic, and I built an apocryphal show and fandom to give those ideas a home. It's quantum science fiction about saving the world from alternate dimensions. It's also designed to be crossover-friendly and I have mixed it with many other fandoms, along with original work.
"THE Woman" -- first in the Herolock series
"Safe Keeping" first in the Schrodinger's Hulk series
"Sloppy and Wet" -- first in the original Don't Try This at Home series

The Ursulan Cycle shared world
This is genderbent King Arthur. Almost all the characters have their sex/gender flipped. It changes the plot a lot, but some things maintain.
"Of the Line of Danu" is my contribution, about Morgause and the birth of Morgan.
[personal profile] clare_dragonfly has written many pieces in this series. "Recruitment Day" is the earliest, about lady knights. "The Shield in the Flame" is the retelling of the classic "The Sword in the Stone" scene.

For more fanfic, see my AO3 page. I usually post things here first, but it's easier to find them all together there.
