January Prompt Request

The Prompt Request is open from now (Monday, 21 January, my time) until sometime Sunday, 27 January, my time is now closed.

WARNING:  Prompts requesting seasonal weather are likely to get heat, mugginess, thunderstorms and a threat of bushfires because that’s what it’s like now 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 November and December 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.

A landing page for one of your serials.

A post with a list of your serials.

Another winged cat/sons of the earth universe story please! Either something related to the pieces already written or something totally new. I know, I'm not very good at deciding what to request.

Here I am!

After the Aliens Left
More Nai
Rensa, and something to give her some peace
The sin we weren't expecting.
The water at the edge of town
The Storm that Changed Everything
Nai's brother, and how her siblings are dealing with her vanishing.
The moon and what's wrong with it.
Nai again: why do they have such a big family?
Waking up someone else.
When Fashions have to change to suit (ha) the world.
The darkness we didn't expect
Rune/Solstice. How are her parents doing?

Rix's #promptcall is open!

Jonna. Does her family know where she's vanished to? Also, she's spending a lot of time learning from, well, everyone, but she's also coming into this situation with a lot of skills and knowledge already. Any chances to shine?

Whichever thread in Rune's world you're currently most interested in, in any generation.

Mayin & Jan-li's next conversation. Or maybe Mayin taking some thinking time, first? I doubt Neoma will manage not to ask questions if she gets an opportunity; I don't know how direct Raquel or Ley would be.


Henry & others from Inheritance

The Seer & The Mistress of Time

Juveniles In Custody

Nai. How unusual are her skills?

Angel universe please!
Prompt word: Blizzard.
Alternately, since that's hard to imagine in summer: tiny Dots of snow melting on cloth.

...yeah I'm in a cold place at the moment. It's novel walking outside while it's snowing. I don't usually get the chance.

I've been wondering about Iphana, and how her winter went (or that of the town) or how things went for either come the spring.

Huh, did I really get this distracted? I guess I did. Since January is the beginning of the year, how about some beginnings...

* The beginning of a journey
* The first day of school
* Beginning a relationship
* The beginning of the end
* Starting a new project
* The opening of the trial
