Prompt Request
The initial prompt window is now closed.

As explained elsewhere, I have reason to believe that the laptop I do some of my writing on is dying. The writing concerned is primarily Nai.

Consequently, I have decided to run a prompt call with the aim of getting the funds together for a new laptop faster than I would be able to otherwise. Preliminary investigations in the middle of our current sale season (we’re in the run up to the end of financial year over here) suggest that at the moment I could get a current model equivalent of my existing machine for $500 to $800, Australian. I intend to carry out more specific queries tomorrow and will update this post then.

I do not expect to raise that sort of money through writing to prompts by the end of this month. I am going to run a laptop funding prompt request and see how I go.

On this occasion, the prompts are themeless, so ask for anything you like – except fanfic or porn. The first is out because I don’t follow Enough Things to have any idea who you are talking about, the second because I have to be in the mood and can’t guarantee that. You may, of course, ask for continuations or other further pieces on characters and stories I have already written.

For each prompt, I will write at least 250 words.

Anyone may prompt and get a single prompt written to for free.

Anyone may signal boost and get one additional prompt written to for free. Signal boosting on additional platforms will get you another 100 words added to your minimum word count per platform.

Anyone may pay for a prompt to be written to. There is a button!

Anything I need to know?

Anyone may pay for extensions to a written to prompt. There is another button!

Prompt Extensions

Also, there is a money raised tracker:

Participation bonuses:

If we reach $10 – I will write to a randomly selected, unfunded prompt.

If we reach $20 – I call upon the combined prompters to craft a new, fiendishly clever prompt for me to write to.

If we reach $30 – I will call upon those who have paid for prompts and extensions to craft a devious and confusing prompt for me to write to. I will also have to come up with more participation bonuses.

The initial prompt window runs from now, which is late on Saturday, 13 June 15 my time, until late on Wednesday, 17 June 15 my time is now closed. Prompts and extensions may continue to be paid for after this time.

Thank you for your participation.

Finally! I have beaten my response to your prompt into plausibility (possibly from wish fulfilment) and the result can be found here http://rix-scaedu.livejournal.com/228463.html

I'm kind of curious where it started out, but suspect that'd be spoilerific or distracting or both. :)

I had to ask myself serious questions like, "Really, who would put a permanent memorial on the _top_ of a building?" And, "Why do you want it there and how else can we achieve that?"

Heh. So once upon a loooooong time ago (before air transport) was this a well-defended village on top of the mesa?

I hadn't thought of that but could have been, or an established safe base in the early history of colonisation.

The bad guys wound up coming in by air because I had to explain how they got weapons through security...
