 [personal profile] purplecat has announced that new rounds are open for [community profile] ladiesbingo and [community profile] genprompt_bingo.  I have found both of these fests to work great for inspiring crowdfunded material -- I like to combine a bingo prompt with a fan prompt.  [community profile] ladiesbingo is all about relationships between women, which may be sexual/romantic, familial, professional, or whatever.  [community profile] genprompt_bingo focuses on topics outside the sex/romance range, for folks who want to write about something else, although it is acceptable to write sex/romance for that fest if you wish.

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted "Foolish Promises" which is a sequel to "Brittle Words," set in Polychrome Heroics.  A group of friends support each other through some life upheavals.

Here's a lovely look at several of Jack Kirby's characters of diversity, made with Stan Lee but these are ones primarily driven by Jack.  

Note that Ben Grimm is a double-tap for being Jewish and lower/working class.  As the Thing, he is also a man of color -- even though color-changed characters may have grown up white, they pick up the chromatic stigma of not being white anymore and it really shows in how people treat them.  Also worth considering is the way that Jack characterized Ben as Jewish for years before it was safe to come right out and say that.  Sometimes I tag the ethnicity or religion of my characters openly, but often it's just there in the name, location, physical description, etc.

I always liked the technological aspect of Black Panther, which so often gets overlooked.  After having discovered Odinani, the sacred science of Nigeria, I kind of wonder if that played in.

This post has a couple of character generators, fursona and monster versions, which give you a few interesting phrases to work with.

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has written the story "Buttons, Beads, and Books" for Frankenstein's Family.  It fleshes out the character of Bogdana, the old woman who sells used clothes.  It's a quiet, bittersweet story.

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer wrote the demifiction "Medicinal Uses for Extract of Digitalis" for Frankenstein's Family.  I was intrigued by this, as digitalis seems like a very plausible ingredient for mad science reanimation of dead body parts into a living creature.
