Welcome to my summer giraffe Call!

The theme today is "When the best answer is FIRE"

Please feel free to leave as many prompts as come to your mind!

The Prompt Call is now closed to everyone except: tippers, new Patreons, people who have never
prompted in a Giraffe Call of mine before, and people whose signal boost brought me a new person. However, if we cross a combined new friend/new Patron/tip threshold by 9 p.m. 6/27, there will be a second day of prompt-calling with a new theme!

I will write a short flash fiction or the beginning of a story (approx 150-300 words) for the first twelve prompters who post their prompts within the next 24 hours.

I will start posting stories around 7:30 a.m. Eastern time and continue until I run out of prompters/until 9:30 p.m., and then pick up again tomorrow morning with whatever's left.

I'll write a second (or more) story for you if:
  • You tip or pledge to my patreon
  • You are a new prompter - don't forget to tell me!
  • Your signal boost brings in a new prompter

If you qualify for a second-plus story, I will also waive the twelve-prompter limit and the 24-hour limit for you.

Please remember to tell me if you are a new prompter, AND what/who brought you to this Giraffe Call!
If your Paypal or Patreon account name does not match your posting/prompting account name, please remember to leave a note letting me know you tipped/pledged.

Any tip you leave will buy you more words, at my reduced Giraffe Call rate of $5/300 words.

In Addition, if I receive $25 in tips, $10 in new Pledges, or 10 new followers between LiveJournal and Dreamwidth - or a combination thereof - I will run the Giraffe Call for a second day, with a second theme, and a second chance to prompt! The prompt options for tomorrow are currently tied at "Green Thumbs," "Impossible Ideas," and "Summer ritual celebrations."

* The most effective way to solve the problem of a bully in the workplace is to fire the bully.

* Stop a wildfire by burning a firebreak.

* When people are trying to kill you, shooting at them can be a really great idea. "How did they ... what, Reavers?! ... somebody, FIRE!"

* You can't really learn how to control Fire Powers without using them. Find a safe place and start burning some stuff.

I'm also boosting the signal on DW, LJ, and FB.

Aodh of Adergoole basement student fame, he who unfortunately damages himself with his own change/innate power (see Lolly's quote about getting good at burn healing because of him), gets to use said power constructively, if maybe not with the most finesse in the world.

How about baking sweet potatoes
or the making sorghum molasses which requires a steady fire under the boiler sometimes for days on end to make.

Fire is cleansing.

I keep thinking of a place that's saturated with disquieted spirits which refuse to be soothed or who cannot be freed of the place by ordinary means.
And so an ancient house/castle which is owned by nobility is cleansed---much to the dismay of the family which owns it.

Best wishes!

So, your kink mileage may vary, so do this one only if this is up your alley: fire in the context of marking/branding.

A magic ritual where you can destroy an element of your own personality (ex. a habit) with fire.
