I've posted a poll over in LiveJournal for the general fund in the Polychrome Heroics half-price sale.  You can vote with the checkboxes -- unlike most of my polls, this one lets you select multiple answers -- or if you don't have an account on LJ, you can leave a comment or contact me backchannel to vote.  There's quite a bit of cheap poetry left, even after all the stuff that people have bought.

This poem takes place in Terramagne, even though it came out of the very first Poetry Fishbowl on November 21, 2007, long before Polychrome Heroics was established. Over time I've learned to recognize different worlds and what makes them distinctive, so when I came back across this poem recently, I recognized it as belonging to this setting. This poem was inspired by prompts from LJ users Beetiger and Je_reviens. It has been sponsored by [personal profile] technoshaman.

This poem was written outside the prompt calls, filling the "desperate" square in my 5-22-14 card for the [community profile] origfic_bingo fest. It has been sponsored by [personal profile] technoshaman. It belongs to the series Polychrome Heroics.

WARNING: This poem includes intense topics, and some of the warnings are spoilers; highlight to read. Be prepared for mass fatalities, EVERY LIVING THING in the radius is dead, heroes arriving too late to do anything but analyze what happened, war parallels, disturbing scene details, existential horror, and the aftermath of heroic sacrifice. Oh, and the villain is dead in a corner too. Not recommended for reading shortly before bed. Please consider your tastes and headspace before deciding whether to read further.
