September Prompt Request

The Prompt Request is now closed.  The Prompt Request is open from now (Saturday, 1 September, my time) until sometime Sunday, 9 September, my time.  I was going to put this up last night so it could be an August Prompt call but I fell asleep instead, ah well.

Anyway, 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 April and June 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.

Moar, please? Too many threads, too hard to prioritize! But here are some not quite picked out of a hat ...

The Atlanteans' Return

After the Fairy Tale

Rensa -- what is she doing when she isn't wrangling other people's problems? Or is that what she's doing to bury her grief and cope?


Rune and Franz
(If you are done with their thread, please let me know, and I will stop nudging. Or any of the others, really, but this is the one I'm least sure about the status of.)

Henry & others from Inheritance

It Was Just a Card Game

Juveniles In Custody

Grand Designs

I have written to your first prompt here http://rix-scaedu.livejournal.com/100242.html

Sorry it took so long - the characters insisted on being sensible.

Oh I can hardly pick.

I would really like to hear more about On The Edge of Disaster.

I would also really like to hear more of the story set on a different colony in the Rensa universe that I can't find but you mentioned was called Firestuff.

Signal Boost of Dooom - @Rix_Scaedu's #promptCall

User aldersprig referenced to your post from Signal Boost of Dooom - @Rix_Scaedu's #promptCall saying: [...] among many awesome stories. AND NOW she's doing it again! Rix's September Prompt Request [...]

Intentional distressing
The purr
Blue mushrooms
(I make prompts from what I see around me, did you know that?)
Knitting a strange story
All friends or none, no friends of all
The creation of a language as it affects the people who speak it
Drawing the map while stepping on it.
An unexpected meal.
A last meal, and why.
A forgiveness too late in coming.
A prisoner, and why.
That's 12!


1) Angel setting: Do their mystical artifacts (like holy water) get a power boost from the cleric's degree of faith, or is it determined by something else?

2) Elf setting: How do they deal with the humans freaking out over the really bad harvest following the drought?

3) Paint-based magic.

Boosting signal on my LJ and DW, echoing to my Facebook.

More on that angel with the striped wings who couldn't get into a choir please!

*edit* hrm that probably doesn't help at all. In case you need inspiration - "the weapon stuck fast"

I haven't posted prompts yet? For shame! Here are some prompts now:

* Graciousness in victory
* More of Just Curious (Hmm, okay, so I couldn't ask for this if I was on time)
* Generals at the border, seeking to prevent a war
* Spirals
* More of the Renfrews (Planning for Friction)
