October Prompt Request

The Prompt Request is open from now (Monday, 1 October, my time) until sometime Saturday, 13 October, my time.  now closed.  Thank you everyone who prompted and signal boosted.

If you give me more than one prompt you need to know that I will work through the list in order starting at the top.

The rules and parameters:

1.      Each prompt will be:

a.       a short sentence or phrase;

b.      a story of mine posted to LJ you want to see more of – it does not need to come from a Prompt Request; or

c.       characters of mine from stories posted on LJ – they do not need to come from a Prompt Request.

2.      For each prompt I write to I will write 300±50 words.  If you want to see something I’ve done along these lines before, please see the results of my July and September Prompt Requests.  I have found that stories sometimes carry me away and you may get more than 350 words due to no fault of yours.

3.      I will write one prompt per person, unless you signal boost this Prompt Request or a story from it , in which case I will write an additional prompt per site/platform you boost on i.e. one prompt each on LJ, Twitter, Dreamwidth, etc, for each day of the prompt request you signal boost.  I am setting an arbitrary limit of 14 extra prompts per prompter from boosting.  You will need to tell me about your boosts because I am not across every site and platform.

4.      For each prompter I get, I will write 50 words in a prompting reward serial story;

5.      No fanfic, I just don’t know enough about enough current series and settings to do your favourites justice – give me a name or names and I promise what you get will not be the people you know and love; and

6.      Please, nothing that has to be porn – I have to be in the mood to write that sort of thing and I would like to be able to post these stories without warnings.  (Yes, I know, 1b & 1c could produce prompts that are almost like that.)

7.      For every ten prompt-based pieces I write I will I write a background piece on a world or character, subject to be chosen by audience poll.

Why am I doing this?  Practice!  Plus I’ve found that I enjoy the interaction with all of you.

And yes, there is a tip jar.  This is for extensions.  I will write extensions at 500 words per $5.00.

1.      If I receive any money for extensions I can no longer be flabbergasted because that’s already happened but I will be very surprised. J

2.      For every $15 I receive for paid extensions I will write to one more prompt, chosen by those who have paid for extensions, from any ‘unsupported’ prompts received in the Prompt Request.  This will occur after I have written the paid extensions.  An ‘unsupported’ prompt is one which does not have a signal boost to support it.

If you are kind enough to give me more signal boosts than you want to prompt, I will use each of your ‘left over’ signal boosts to power another 50 words in the prompt reward story.

Please tell me where you’ve signal boosted as a reply to your comment giving me prompts.

Thank you for participating.

Signal Boost: Rix's Prompt Call

More Rensa!

The Time I Won by Getting Kidnapped

The mail's in the check (have I done that one already?)

For a while, everyone kept quoting that line from the Matrix: "A déjà vu is usually a glitch in the Matrix. It happens when they change something."
I think I would have preferred that be the case.

Moar of your luck-witch and her not-friend.

The time the Oligarchy beat the Theocracy, and why
(My kittens say hi)

When Time And Space turned upside down and backwards.

First, invent the world...

I never meant to get lost. Well, not usually.

What kinds of demons are there to go with the angels, and how do they interact with each other?

Somebody in the Elf setting is new to the idea of Halloween and kind of freaked about it.

A character whose greatest wish is to NOT be who they are, who really gets only one happy day a year, Halloween.

Mean prom and dance shenanigans have been increasing. When a Hispanic girl gets shut out of her school dance, Baron Samedi -- who can be a perfect gentleman -- takes her to a spook dance instead.

I'll be boosting the signal on LiveJournal, Dreamwidth, and Facebook.
