December Prompt Request

The Prompt Request is open from now (Sunday, 9 December, my time) until sometime Monday, 24 December, my time is now CLOSED.  Thank you to everyone who participated and I will keep writing till I've finished your prompts.

WARNING:  Prompts requesting seasonal weather are likely to get heat, mugginess, thunderstorms and a threat of bushfires because that’s Christmas weather where I live.  J

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 September and October 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.

Your Prompters' Story words are here http://rix-scaedu.livejournal.com/59359.html and here http://rix-scaedu.livejournal.com/126898.html.

The story has gotten too long for one LJ post.

1) So I'm remembering that time Australia was simultaneously on fire and under water, in different areas. I'd like to see a freak snowstorm/bushfire combination with charcoal snow or frozen ash and other bizarre shit going on.

2) From the Angels setting: a forgotten holiday.

3) From the Elf setting: someone hates Christmas and gives a valid reason.

More Nai - something surprising (to her?) about her teacher

<shuffles prompts>

Mayin. (So, we've heard a little bit of how courtship traditionally works in Jan-li's culture. What about Mayin's? Her family keeps trying to introduce her to people, or was ...)

Henry & others from Inheritance

The Atlanteans Return



Grand Designs

It Was Just a Card Game

The Seer & The Mistress of Time

Juveniles In Custody


Nai. How common or uncommon are women in professional gi competitions? Also, how easy or hard a task was figuring out how to generate darts like the woman on the train used from just that one opportunity to observe? If Master Que already knew how to do that, would he not have taught her already? If not, did she just figure out for herself how to do something he couldn't just as easily have worked out? And then she was confident enough in her new trick to use it in a tournament within days?

Rune & Franz, or something else from their world (in any generation) if their story has come to a close.

Just to jump on a bandwagon, wandered over to read the Nai section you just posted and more would be neat.

Quite enjoying the stuff on Nai, so much that I struggle to recall your other settings. But I have done it!
