[personal profile] dialecticdreamer is hosting Magpie Monday today with a theme of "Questions." Leave prompts, get ficlets!  Boost the signal to get longer fills.  There are bonus perks too.

If I can earn $65 in tips for the event, I’ll post a Strange Family story of at least five thousand words. First, I’ll have to figure out a title for it… Talk about a tough question! Note that the next planned story is NOT gentle fiction; it focuses on the raids Hatter has organized and will have a list of warnings so readers may decide when or if to read the story.

Common Bonds: An anthology of speculative fiction featuring aromantic characters and centering platonic relationships by Claudie Arseneault has reached its first stretch goal to pay contributors a professional rate. With about 6 hours left in the campaign, they're $1000 from the next stretch goal of illustrations.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer is hosting Feathering the Nest today, focusing on nonsexual intimacies. Leave prompts, get ficlets! Boost the signal to extend the wordcount, or sponsor stories for everyone to see.

To get even more words, I’m aiming for $65 in tips for the event. In addition to posting the stories the sponsor selects, that will ALSO post a longer story in the Strange Family arc, which (SPOILERS)-- well, it’s five thousand words, and a massive change in the family dynamics. I’m hoping that readers will enjoy it!

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer is hosting Magpie Monday today with a theme of "spring miracles." Leave prompts, get ficlets! There are perks for boosting the signal and donating.

I’m doing this for fun, but I’m increasingly hoping for income, and will offer one more scan for errors, then post the sponsor’s chosen story immediately, which could offer a glut of reading for everyone to enjoy! If I reach $65 in sponsorships, not only do the requested stories post, I will also post a five thousand (5000) word story as a bonus. How did Saul and Genna work out the tension that kept Saul away even in Minnesota? This is the tale!

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer is hosting "Feathering the Nest" today, with a focus on nonsexual intimacies. Leave prompts, get ficlets! Boosting the signal earns you more words.

This is the point in the essay where I invite readers to sponsor stories, and use a bonus story as an incentive: if I earn $65 in tip/donations, I’ll post “Becoming ‘Ohana,” in four parts for easy reading, all at once. It’s the story of Mariset and Jules’ early friendship becoming a solid bond of ‘ohana between the adults as well as the pair of eight-year-olds.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer is hosting Magpie Monday today with a theme of 'Ohana. Leave prompts, get ficlets! There's also a target for tips:

This month, I’m hoping to reach a total of $65 in tips. If I do, I’ll immediately post the full story “Ripple Effects.”
Aida Finn is nowhere near Jules’ class when events transpired on Thursday, but she certainly sees (and feels) the after effects. She turns to Bennett for help coping with one particular surprise. The story is four parts, a total of 5900 words plus a bit, and is ready to post now.

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted "Dealing with Departure" (Part 1, Part 2) about Pips leaving for his next job.  It is beautiful and wrenching.  He's right at that stage where he's starting to think about settling down, but not quite ready yet, so everything feels weird and confusing.  It really is a lot like a romance -- minus the kissy bits and the horrible unhealthy parts where people and clingy and have ridiculous misunderstandings.  They just need time for Pips to figure out his path.  I love this so much more than conventional story arcs.
