Get your November cards here! Is anyone doing Nano? :D

Amnesty week will run from now until 8th November if you want to get a new card without making a bingo on your existing one.

The usual rules apply:

  1. Ask for a card type when you request: GEN, GEN+ROMANCE or GEN+ROMANCE+KINK.
  2. You can have two card types on the go at once, but please only request one type per month.
  3. Bingos can be won through any shape, such as up and down, side to side or diagonal lines, x shapes, u shapes, or any other shape you can make out of a 5x5 grid OR any five random squares filled in on your grid.
  4. Feel free to post links to your bingo pieces, or a list of the prompts you filled and a summary of each fill. If you do link to your fills, please be careful with things aren't PG-13.

More detailed rules are here.

Good luck, and happy bingoing!

Thanks to a donation from Anthony & Shirley Barrette, "What a Precious Privilege" is now complete!  See how Stan and Lawrence work out the rest of their compromises now that Lawrence is feeling better enough to articulate at least some of his needs without giving Stan that stomped-puppy look.

Watch for more about Stan and Lawrence, as the next four poems will be going up over the next several days as I have time to post them.

Here is a chemical comparison of different types of blood in Terran lifeforms: red, blue, green, and violet.  So if you want to make alien blood a different color, these are guaranteed viable.

A friend asked me for resources on tactile sensitivity in small children. I wrote a response and then realized it would be useful to more people, so here it is. Much of this stuff will generalize to other sensory issues and to adults.

Story: "The Path of the Sun" Part 3

Oct. 29th, 2014 12:16 am
ysabetwordsmith: (Schrodinger's Heroes)
[personal profile] ysabetwordsmith
This story belongs to the Schrodinger's Hulk series, a crossover between Hulk and Schrodinger's Heroes. It is a sequel to "Safe Keeping" and "Two Spirits, One Past," and "For the Very First Time." It fills the "original characters" square in my 6-11-14 card for the [community profile] fanbingo fest, and the "sunny" square in the public card for the Birthday Bingo fest.

Format: Fiction
Title: "The Path of the Sun"
Fandom: Hulk/Schrodinger's heroes
Summary: Bruce is not a fan of birthdays, nor of parties in general. Pat is pretty sure he can change Bruce's mind.
Required Warnings: No standard warnings apply.
Notes: Gentle coaxing, laid-back planning, low-key celebration, party food, games, team as family, cottoncandy fluff.

Here ends "The Path of the Sun." Thank you all for sticking with the Schrodinger's Hulk series this far! I love your input. Final thoughts on the story overall are welcome, in addition to reactions on this specific chapter.

I do not have another piece of fanfic to post at this time. I've been crazy-busy the last few weeks and will be through the end of October. Sorry to break off like this, but when I'm overbooked I have to cut the nonpaying projects first. :( Keep an eye on the fiction and poetry tags here in my blog; I'll post more if or when I have some.

A note on feedback: While it's not necessary to comment on every post I make, remember that I don't know who reads/likes things if nobody says anything. Particularly on long stories, I've discovered that I get antsy if there's nothing but crickets chirping for several posts. So it helps to give me feedback at least once, even if it's just "I like this" or "This one doesn't grab me." First and last episodes are ideal if you rarely feel inspired to comment in the middle.

Begin with Part 1, Part 2.

This is an advance announcement for the Tuesday, November 4, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl. This time the theme will be "winning without defeating anyone." I'll be soliciting ideas for friends, family, best enemies, friendly opponents, good sportsmen and gamesters, fighting fair, playing by the rules, turning enemies into allies/friends/lovers, agreeing to fight for a common cause, thinking outside the box, conflicts, old arguments, rules of engagement, cooperation, teamwork skills, playgrounds, sporting fields, battlegrounds, board rooms, cooperative games, different goals, game boards and pieces, and poetic forms in particular.

I have a linkback poem, "Underfoot" (179 verses, Hart's Farm). [personal profile] dialecticdreamer will be hosting this.

If you're interested, mark the date on your calendar, and please hold actual prompts until the "Poetry Fishbowl Open" post next week. (If you're not available that day, or you live in a time zone that makes it hard to reach me, you can leave advance prompts.) Meanwhile, if you want to help with promotion, please feel free to link back here or repost this on your blog.

This I believe.

Go and do likewise.

I really have no tolerance for jerks who try to crush other people's dreams.

I have submitted the last of my Llewellyn articles for the summer writing season.  Yaaay!  

Usually this is where I take a day or few off.  Instead I have Samhain season this year.  0_o  But the articles are DONE and the daffodils are DONE.  So, progress.
