The call for prompts is now OPEN!

I am now taking prompts on the theme of In the City

When Evangaline’s Aunt died, it fell to her to clean out the old house where her Aunt had lived and, before her Aunt Asta, her Aunt’s Aunt Ruan (family history stopped there, but Evangaline felt as if, if she tracked it back far enough, there would be an unbroken line of Aunts back into pre-history). As a childless Aunt herself, she accepted that the house would now become hers, but not that she needed to keep the piles of accumulated auntieness that filled it.

Thus began Heirlooms & Old Lace (LJ), the first story in Aunt Family (LJ) series, from a prompt of "A tarot deck (or seer) that is possessed by demon(s)" See my Landing Page (LJ) for more of my settings.


I will write (over the next week) at least one microfic (150-500 words) to each prompter.

If you have donated, I will write to every prompt you left.

In addition, for each $5 you donate, I will write an additional 500 words to the prompt(s) of your choice.

For every linkback I receive, I will post another 50 words on a story (See the poll for setting here on DW and here on LJ

If I get two new commenters or one new donator, I will write a setting piece (setting chosen by poll).

And, of course, donations are always well-received:

If I reach $35 in donations, I will post an additional 1000-2000-word fic on the subject of the audience's choice. reached!

If I reach $50, T. and I will have Indian take-out. At this level, anyone who donated $7.50 or more will have a copy of "Alder by Post" mailed to them if they wish
reached!

If I reach $65, I will write at least 2 microfics for everyone, whether or not they donated. reached!

If I reach $95, I will write at least 3 microfics for everyone, whether or not they donated. reached!

If I reach $120, I will record a podcast of an audience-choice story and post it for everyone to read. reached!

If I reach $150, I will release an e-book of all of the fiction written to this call and the last one. Also, everyone who tipped will get wordcount-and-a-half reached!

If I reach $201, I will have paid our furnace bill! I will hold a mid-month Call on a single setting of the readers' choice. reached!

If I reach $240, we'll get to eat delicious cake! I'll hold an ask-the-characters chat session. reached!

If I reach $286, after our detour into furnaceland, we will reach giraffe-kingdom! The giraffe carpet will be entirely funded, and I will post a bajillion pictures of the lovely carpet and half-complete room. I will also write another encyclopedia pages for a setting of your choice. A lucky prompter will get, also, their own 1000-word special.

If we reach $300, we'll have covered the hardware for the bedroom!


For more information on Giraffe Calls, see the landing page.


This Giraffe's Call's goal, $201, is to pay for my our recent emergency furnace repair bills.

(3) The 'Facets' team finds themselves in a city beneath a city beneath a city.

More about that city where the statues are coming to life!

A Hunt through a city that keeps changing--is it aiding or hampering, or is it simply changing because that's what it does?

Taking refuge from the apocalypse in a sewer.

Animals/beings that shouldn't be in a city finding comfortable niches there.

Um... the Cali team takes Reid to a city? I don't know :-P

More of Unicorn/Factory (preferred, but not necessarily, continuing an existing storyline)
Exterminator being called on something definitely not within their purview
Building freeze after a find during excavations (the exciting ones here either involve Roman ruins or WWII bombs, just to explain where I'm getting the idea from)
WHAT is living in the sewers?
Trying to find a parking space
(window) shopping
This park has seen better days
Apartment house with strange inhabitants

As to linkbacks, I retweeted one of your announcements, and posted on g+, facebook, deviantart, and my website, the last mirrored to DW and LJ.

No idea if it'll do any good, but there you are. XD

Donated! (skjam is in my email.)

Choose verses as appropriate...

* A "green space" movement gets a little out of hand.

* How a street got its name. (Maybe Unicorn Factory for this one?)

* "I've just realized...I haven't seen any homeless people or beggars on the street for at least a month. Where did they all go?"

In a setting like Addergoole where some characters live many normal human generations, a person returns to a city they used to know well but has not been to in a very long time.

In a dystopian future people play tabletop RPGs about going to the city, but they don't really have an accurate idea of what cities were like.

A story about finding a city in the Vas world.

What type of street vendors are there in a city of pixies.

Wait, I haven't posted any prompts yet? I'd best fix that.

* A visit to Earth-Town, the tourist supported human settlement in an alien city. There are of course the cheap 'Earth' memorabilia sold on every corner, the street vendors with cheap 'human' food for adventurous aliens to try (Sushi carts, pancake carts, "What? It's just ice." "We call it a snow cone. Plain, cherry, grape, even wasabi flavored if you're brave enough.")

* Or in Tir na Cali, a few generations onward from the 'current' time. Someone with the agency goes on an undercover mission to investigate after a second generation free Cali cat person who has been successful in business decides to invest in establishing a new town. She did get the local Baroness/Countess's approval first, but of course word of it has spread to other free Cali-cats some of whom are moving in...

* Inhabitants of a city realize that they have no history. As near as they can tell they spontaneously appeared on whatever world they are on (which doesn't appear to be the middle of no-where Alaska/Canadian north like they though) at least a generation back. There's no space ship, no stargate, just a city on its own (okay, I stole this idea from Steve Gallacci's Albedo/Erma Felna comics, although IIRC in the background of that setting there were multiple cities, but again the sudden realization that they seemed to have appeared out of nowhere with no record written or archaeological of how they came to be).
