I do not have the time or the mental/emotional spoons to write anything long until May (and what I do have in that vein is spoken for), but one of the best ways to fight depression is to create stuff.

So... I am running a mini-ficlet prompt meme. :)

Rules are as follows:

Here is my Genprompt Bingo card, and here is my Daredevil Bingo card.

For those who prefer lists to graphics, the open Genprompt Bingo squares are: Northern / Southern Lights, Midnight, Extraordinary, Pipes and Beer, Fundamental Particles, Butcher / Baker / Candlestickmaker: Tradesman, Introspection, Light-Hearted, Holiday Cottages, Heart on Sleeve, Grooming (Brushing / Braiding Hair, Painting Nails, etc.), It was a Decoy / Feint / Distraction, WILD CARD, Suicide, Another year older: Birthdays, Monsoon, Three Wishes, Science and Magic, The Age of Reason, Steadfast, Trust, Second Person Narration, Space AU, Takeout, Apocalypse.

The open DD Bingo squares are: ninjutsu, balcony scene, anonymous source, Braille, accidental injury (physical or emotional), it's a start, redemption, grappling, officer of the law, miscommunication, WILD CARD, All Saints, go be a hero, lightweight, confession, AU: pirates, identity porn, eskrima/arnis/kali, libel, order in the court, without fear, time travel (to the past), Mike. (You cannot claim the 'role reversal' or 'AU: A/B/O' squares, since I have plans for those which I will get to in due time.)

If you would like to claim any of the open squares, please leave a comment with one to three characters, a prompt from one of the cards, and a scenario, and I will write you a ficlet of at least 100 words.

-----

Notes:

1. I reserve the right to veto any fandoms I don't know well enough to write, and ask you to please try again.

2. In these challenges, WILD CARD means to grab any prompt from the complete list. Here is the Genprompt Bingo list and here is the DD Bingo list. I reserve the right to veto any such wild card prompt substitutions and ask you to please try again.

3. Genprompt Bingo fills do not have to be gen. The 'gen' in the challenge just means that none of the prompts presuppose any kind of romantic or sexual relationships.

-----

(Also, special one-time offer! If you have a really good scenario I could used to fill the last unclaimed square on my Cotton Candy Bingo card -- the prompt word in question is 'cute' -- I will write you a ficlet of at least 500 words. I keep drawing a complete blank when facing that prompt, and would greatly appreciate any suggestions.)

Fill List:

1. ) Foundlings - 1,175 words. I think something with Finn, Rey, & BB8 for your "cute" cotton candy square would be awesome. *g* Written 4/5/17 for [personal profile] musesfool. [Tumblr crosspost; AO3 crosspost]

2. ) Transition State - 400 words. For the "science and magic" prompt: Star Trek: The Next Generation/Sandman. When Data begins to use his dream program, he encounters Morpheus, who welcomes him as the first non-biological life-form to enter the Dreaming. Written 4/6/17 for [livejournal.com profile] akatsuki210. [Tumblr crosspost; AO3 crosspost]

3. ) Written on the Skin - 250 words. I would love to see something with Erin and Aeriel (either gen or shippy) for "Grooming". Written 4/6/17 for [personal profile] minutia_r. [Tumblr crosspost; AO3 crosspost]

4. ) Camouflage the Question - 1,500 words. For the 'It was a Decoy / Feint / Distraction' prompt: Sailor Moon, with one of the senshi remembering that Usagi has that Disguise Pen and actually using it for something? Written 4/27/17 for [personal profile] gramarye1971. [Tumblr crosspost; AO3 version]

My list of writing projects, now that I'm done with Ladystuck Remix and WIP Big Bang:

1. Narnia Fic Exchange, due 8/31. I still haven't picked a prompt, let alone started writing. (This is what happens when all the options sound brilliant!) I will try to have something selected and outlined by Sunday. I may also be beta-reading for some other people.

2. Three Cotton Candy Bingo mini-ficlet prompt meme requests. (Tumblr mirror.) I'm stuck on the first one because I think it wants to be porn, and, well, me and porn? Not the greatest of friends. Also the terms of the prompt -- 'using the Sharingan after Sasuke came back' -- require me to deal with late Naruto canon, and I don't really want to put in the work to figure out a better resolution to Team 7's various emotional arcs. Nrgh. (I'd avoid the issue by setting it in the Tides AU, but I suspect I'd get hung up trying to make detailed plot outlines for the two sequels I never wrote.) On the other hand, if I'm writing straight-up porn, I don't really need to explain anything, right? The term PWP exists for a reason...

(FYI, you can still go make requests for the remaining three Cotton Candy prompts, either via a comment on Dreamwidth or via my Tumblr askbox. I will probably take several weeks to write the fic, but I won't forget.)

3. I have no idea if Remix Redux is actually happening this year. The mods made a preliminary announcement, and then... *crickets chirp*

4. Yuletide nominations will open in a few weeks. I should probably start thinking about that.

...Actually, let me hash that out right now. I will always make requests for The Dispossessed and The Lions of Al-Rassan if they're available, but do I care enough to use my nominations on them? The former, at least, seems to often get taken care of by other people, but I know the latter has vanished sometimes when I haven't nominated it myself. *ponders options* I think other people will probably take care of the Black Jewels series, and even nominate Karla because she's well-liked. (I still want my Karla-has-a-happy-lesbian-sex-life fic, dammit.) I want Syllva and Eryka to be character options for the Darkangel trilogy, so I'd better nominate them because I don't think anyone else will. I also think I might go for that Saga of the Skolian Empire prompt as well this year, so I'd better make sure Rocalisa is on the character list.

So if we still get three noms per person, it looks like I will be asking for Al-Rassan, the Darkangel triology, and the Skolians. Okay. Good. Now I can stop thinking about that. Back to my list of writing projects!

5. I got a Daredevil Bingo card. I am going to ignore it until at least mid-September. (You can claim specific prompts, though! Here is the information post (yes, it's the same post as my current Cotton Candy Bingo request meme) and you can leave me a prompt request via Dreamwidth comment or via Tumblr askbox. Just, you know, don't expect fast results.)

6. I should really finish the five remaining parts of "The Transient and the Eternal" now that I'm crossposting the extant component fics to AO3.

7. No, I have not forgotten about "Guardian." I never forget about any of my WIPs, even if I've ignored them for years. Trust me on this. :)

On the quite possibly crazy theory that more pressure is better than less pressure (it concentrates my mind), it is once again mini-ficlet prompt meme time!

The rules this time are a little complicated, so bear with me:

Option 1! Here is a link to my open Cotton Candy Bingo card, which still has six unfilled squares. For those who prefer lists to graphics, the open prompts are: picnic, soft, eyes, cute, cuddle, free.

If you would like to claim one of these squares, leave a comment with one to four characters, a prompt word from the list, and a scenario, and I will write you a ficlet of at least 500 words.

Note: Scenarios must be fluffy, but my definition of fluff is flexible. As long as the characters end the ficlet on a happy note, we're good. Anyway, if you have ever wanted a sequel to one of my oneshots, or another installment in any of my series/AUs, this is your chance to make me write it for you. :)

-----

Option 2! Here is a link to my Daredevil Bingo card, which I have not started to work on at all. You cannot claim the role reversal or AU: A/B/O squares because I have very specific ideas for them, but the other twenty-three squares are up for grabs. For those who prefer lists to graphics, the open prompts are: ninjutsu, balcony scene, anonymous source, Braille, accidental injury (physical or emotional), it's a start, redemption, grappling, officer of the law, miscommunication, WILD CARD, All Saints, go be a hero, lightweight, confession, AU: pirates, identity porn, eskrima/arnis/kali, libel, order in the court, without fear, time travel (to the past), Mike.

If you would like to claim one of these squares, leave a comment with one to four characters, a prompt word from the list, and a scenario, and I will write you a Daredevil (MCU) ficlet that is at least three sentences and/or 100 words long.

Note: in this challenge, WILD CARD means to grab any prompt from the list, though be aware that if you pick something from the 'kink' category, chances are very high that I will veto and tell you to try again.

-----

Obligatory small print: Crossover prompts are fine! I reserve the right to reject fandoms I am not familiar with and produce ambiguous gen when attempting to write shipfic. Also, if someone else has previously claimed your requested prompt word, I will notify you and offer you a chance to make a new prompt.

I signed up for [community profile] daredevilbingo! Hopefully it will become a source of inspiration rather than a source of guilt. :)

ETA: Aha! I tweaked the html to stop the card from getting shoved twenty-five lines down the page. (I also rephrased/repunctuated three prompts to make them stop stretching the card cells, because sometimes I want things to be orderly, dammit.) Anyway, yay prompts!

And now to go walk a dog. :)
