Below is my first card for the 2013 [community profile] hc_bingo fest.  (See my second card.)  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.

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'll 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.
B: five poems
I: five poems
N: one story, four poems
G: five poems

O: five poems

love spell / potion gone wrong drowning waterboarding corporal punishment robots / androids
forced to participate in illegal / hurtful activity loss of possessions electrocution taking care of somebody prostitution
hazing combat WILD CARD deadline / time bomb apocalypse
whipping / flogging abuse orphans rape / non-con rejection
counseling experiments by evil scientists sexual extortion parting ways extortion

I'm supposed to be editing, but this makes me wanna play with fic. The "Love is for Children" 'verse story I've been working on is Uncle Phil/Steve corporal punishment. I twisted my brain into all sorts of pretzels debating whether cp would work in your 'verse. The reader in me with a serious 'thing' for discipline spanking really wished it would. The writer, on the other hand, values characterization and established 'verse "cannon". Tony, Bruce, Clint, Natka, and Betty were all obviously out of the question. Steve, on the other hand, reads more as neglect and bullying than physical abuse, and he comes from a time where corporal punishment was common. It was, in fact, still legal in the military through about 1944. Whether I can actually make it work remains to be seen.

This is pretty much exactly what my thoughts about the characters and how they would work were. What started in my brain as discipline has looped away into more of a catharsis-type thing that is 'staged' with elements of typical childhood discipline. Anything else just didn't fit. Steve isn't the type to need to be reined in and even if he were, Uncle Phil has far too many other tools in the toolbox. Steve does however strike me as one who could get stuck in a guilt loop and need a way to 'pay' for his perceived guilt to put it behind him.

I will get it done eventually. The first scene is done. This actually helps. I'm an awful lot like Bruce in terms of perfectionism and fear of failure. "Permission" of a sort helps convince the terrified kid part of me that it's really ok.

I feel kind of weird jumping into this conversation, but if you get this written, I'd like to read it. Your interests are relevant to my interests. :)

Thank you. :-) Like I said, it's partly written. It will eventually get done. I'm just a very slow writer. I'm thrilled there is interest.

If you finish this, please post it? Corporal punishment tends to squick me, BUT, I like your logic and reasonable limits so far, and I would LOVE, LOVE, /LOVE/ to read your characterizations.

Take all the time you need with it-- by the time you post it, it'll be a bright new penny to catch my attention all over again!
