ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)
This poem was written outside the prompt calls, inspired by the "flirting" square in my 5-22-14 card for the [community profile] origfic_bingo fest. It has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Antimatter & Stalwart Stan thread in the Polychrome Heroics series.

ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)
This poem came out of the May 2014 Creative Jam. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] dialecticdreamer.

Below is my second card for the 2014 [community profile] hc_bingo fest. This fest encourages the creation of boundary-pushing material that explores what happens when things go horribly wrong and people actually care about each other. Remember, things always go wrong; what matters is how you deal with that. Some of the content may be NSFW. Read the FAQ and rules first. The signup post is here. (See all my 2014 bingo cards.)

I thought this might be an effective way to attract some new readers. It's also useful for developing some of my more danger-prone series.

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. 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.


HURT/COMFORT BINGO CARD

Stockholm syndrome self-harm unrequited pining coma stalkers
fever / delirium confession in desperate situation forced to participate in illegal / hurtful activity dungeons septicemia / infected wounds

ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)
This poem is spillover from the June 3, 2014 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] rosieknight. It also fills the "first person narration" square in my 6-1-14 card for the [community profile] genprompt_bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Polychrome Heroics series.

By the way, this was my mother's favorite poem of the last batch I sent them; she said it made her laugh. We have some family stories about snapping turtles. My grandmother got chased by one. Honestly, I probably would have skedaddled too.

Here is my second card for Round Three of the [community profile] genprompt_bingo fest. This bingo challenge encourages original or fanfic material across all formats and lengths. It's a terrific fest if you want general and/or gentle fiction, although people can interpret prompts any way they like. There are many categories, and you can choose to omit up to three. Read the rules first.  Browse the Round Three prompt list.  Request a Round Three card here. Prompt lists are renewed once a quarter, and you may request a new card then even without bingo on a previous card. (See all my 2014 bingo cards.)

It has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Dr. Infanta thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Please consider your preferences and headspace before deciding whether to read onward.

This is an advance announcement for the Tuesday, August 5, 2014 Poetry Fishbowl. This time the theme will be "flexible truths." I'll be soliciting ideas for liars, soothsayers, fortunetellers, economists, historians, politicians, journalists, storytellers, other folks who deal in truths and lies, discovering the truth, telling lies, stretching the truth, when an unbelieved truth bites people on the ass, when you let the truth free and it defends itself, plot twists, courtrooms, family meetings, seats of government, sorcerous workrooms, other places where truth is a concern, enlightenment, hidden truths, lies that are too big to fail, universal truths that aren't, the is-ness of reality, natural laws that can be bent but not broken, things that are true but not real (or vice versa), things that are only sometimes true, things that are true but have a wider scope than expected, things that used to be true, and poetic forms in particular.

I have a linkback poem, "A Stranger's Way" (20 verses, Beneath the Family Tree).   [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has offered to host this.

If you're interested, mark the date on your calendar, and please hold actual prompts until the "Poetry Fishbowl Open" post next week. (If you're not available that day, or you live in a time zone that makes it hard to reach me, you can leave advance prompts.) Meanwhile, if you want to help with promotion, please feel free to link back here or repost this on your blog.

ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)
This story was commissioned by [personal profile] dialecticdreamer after discussions about our respective characters, the situation with superkids in Polychrome Heroics, and her interest in the U.S. Coast Guard. It also fills the "stranded / survival scenario" square in my 6-10-14 card for the [community profile] hc_bingo fest.

WARNING: This story contains some intense topics. The warnings include spoilers; highlight to read. There is minor character death, minor grue, a child in danger, refugee status, instinctive use of superpowers, and some other edgy stuff. However, there are people to help and it has a happy ending. Consider your tastes and headspace before clicking through.

All 7 parts of "Keeping Warm" by [personal profile] dialecticdreamer  have now been posted.  If you've been following this story, or waiting for it to conclude so you could read it all at once, now's the time to finish it.  This is a wonderful look at how superpowers and gizmos work in everyday life, and the way folks in Terramagne are just a little more serious about taking care of each other.
