from [community profile] origfic_bingo

And this is what I'm going to do:

Pick a square, and give me a prompt with that as a theme. I.e., Promises Broken, Junie and her teacher.

First prompt will get written; after that I'm going to go for a Bingo, so prompts that are within a line of the first prompt are more likely to get written.

Squares that have been prompted to will be [bolded and bracketed] (if there's two prompts, it'll also be italicized); squares that have been written will have a link. Please feel free to prompt any square, even those filled.

I will post at least the first BINGO.

If you tip, I will write to at least two of your prompts; I will also write you a continuation of your choice at the giraffe call rate of $1/100 Words

For every $20 received in tips, I will post another line of BINGO written.






All the Words!





(I am likely to write many more of the squares from last month still as well!)

This is to [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith's prompt to this January card for [community profile] origfic_bingo.

It fills the "love at first sight" slot, and is in no established verse - although Holly MIGHT end up being in my Episodes 'verse

They first ran into each other at a tiny regional sci-fi con. Holly was doing her favorite Bleach cosplay; Grace was wearing an extravagant medium-length dress and a pair of knee-high boots. She had an overcoat atop, the yellow frogs standing out in stark contrast to the black of the rest of her outfit.

They observed each other for a moment between the roleplaying-book booth and the tinted-contacts table. Grace spoke first, a little frown creasing her white-powdered forehead.

"Run."

She hissed it in his ear, and the man had no choice but to run.

"Flee!"

She called it after him, and so, of course, he fled. She'd given him pants, at least, a shirt, and shoes, although all were too thin for this forest, for the trees that lashed at him and the rocks that caught his feet.

This is to @inventrix and Sky's twitter prompts to my December OrigFic card; this fills the "Tower" square.

It is set in post-apoc Addergoole-world, not in the school, sometime around year 50 of the school, with new characters.


"What do I do, what do I do?"

Leontyne was in the habit of talking to herself. It wasn't a particularly good habit, but it wasn't her worst habit by far, and her children were fond of it, as, they said, it telegraphed her pretty darn well.

Delaney snaked her way in front of Ardell, grinning, all sweetness-and-light and innocence. Baram didn’t budge, and he didn’t miss the three weapons she was carrying openly. Spear, sword, gun.

“We heard you were running a safe house, Baram. We heard you had some Addergoole girls working for you. We heard you had weapons, had food.”

Ardell slunk to the side of Delaney. No smile, more weapons. He often pretended, but he wasn’t pretending to be sweet, at least. “We heard you were living the sweet life here, surrounded by pretty things. Like the girl who answered the door. And we figured we’d pay an old friend a visit.”

1800, somewhere in England

Feu Drake eyed the woman in front of him over his tea. "You are an interesting woman."

"Thank you." She sipped her tea in turn, decorous despite the shackles on her wrists. "And you are an interesting young man... Ignazio, was it?"

"That's as good a name as any."

"'Fire,' jae'Fire-Drake. You are not interested in subtlety, are you?"

"I am not certain jae is appropriate here, Miss... Attwater, was it?"

Jin leaned against the bleachers in gym class, and listened to his human friends fail to understand.

“You introduced her to your folks, right? You did the whole prom thing, you've gone on dates... you've got all the hard stuff out of the way.” Toby had been with his girlfriend, Vanessa, for over a year; he at least thought he knew what he was talking about.

“Until Valentine's Day.” Geordi had gone through seven girlfriends in six months. “Or her birthday. Or, god forbid, Christmas. But it's April. You're golden, unless her birthday's in May.”

“Seriously.” Toby caught a ball tossed their way - they were supposed to be playing dodge-ball - and shook his head at Jin. “Unless this is oogy boogy stuff?”

New setting? Might be in the same world as the oracle whose god got irritated. (here)

This REALLY feels like a draft of a novel beginning to me.


There were a few blind nay-sayers who took it as an ill omen when the temple of Orestin flooded.

Since most of the rest of the city and the surrounding land were also flooded, the majority of citizens were far less concerned. Their temple held a decent piece of land on a well-known street; the place was well-lit of the night time (when the city was less flooded) and well-trafficked during the day. But it was not on the city's one hilltop

A few scholars and that sort suggested that it could be a sign that the temples themselves were places of worship, not the homes of the gods. Thus had been suggested since time immemorial, but there was still no agreement on the matter.

This is to [personal profile] anke's prompt (on twitter) to my December OrigFic Bingo Card. This fills (for the second time) the "Knowledge" square.

Jin, Bianna, and the narrator (Aud) belong to the Dragons Next Door setting.


"There's theoretical classes, of course." Jin was talking fast. I tried not to smile; he liked to talk fast when he didn't think his father was going to give him something. It worked on Sage, half because Sage didn't notice it was happening, and then the other half because he noticed and was amused by it.

I was not Sage, but it amused me as well. I let him go on.

To Kelkyag's prompt for here, my [community profile] dailyprompt prompt "a clone," and here, my OrigFic Bingo card, "Hallucinations/visions."

Paige waved at Mark Faine, although he didn't see her, or at least didn't respond - he never did, but being Mark Faine, he already had a girlfriend and hadn't, as far as Paige could tell, been single for more than a day of their high school career. Which was a pity, 'cause Paige had more than made up for it by being single for their entire high school career, except that one day with Eilan Saffron, and boy had that been a mistake. It would be nice if there were two or three or maybe four Mark Faines. Maybe then she'd have a chance.

She should really get to lunch. She got a little Snickers-commercial when she didn't eat on time, and this stupid Senior-year schedule had her lunch nearly right before she got on the bus. She headed away from where Mark Faine was totes ignoring her, around the corner, stepped away from the punks and sidled sideways around the jocks - no need to upset anyone, everyone had been on edge since the principal quit like that, all of a sudden. The new rules weren't helping things either, and the punks all looked sad and funny without their metal.

This story is directly after Team D.


"What's the big deal? She's a rich kid."

Kelkathian stood on kel's toes and shot Azdekious a glance. The driver still wasn't getting it. This could be a problem. They had an unconscious kid they'd contracted to protect, an immensely important unconscious kid, a panicking backup guy, and a dumb driver.

The situation could be a lot worse, of course; any of them in the front could know what they were doing.

"The big deal." The backup guy coughed. "The big deal? The big deal?"

"I am not above bribery. I am not above blackmail, either, and you know I can come up with blackmail on you after what I've seen."

His voice didn't exactly quaver as he answered. He wasn't quite sure, yet, if she was serious. "Blackmail? There's nothing I'm that ashamed of."

"What about..." even here, they could be overheard. She dropped her voice down to a whisper and murmured in his ear. It wasn't a perfect precaution - nothing was, in Addergoole - but it was something.

His cheeks flushed. "You..." This time his voice broke. "You said something about bribery?"
aldersprig: (Genique)
This is to [livejournal.com profile] kelkyag's prompt to my December Origfic Bingo Card.



Genique is the protagonist of the Space-Accountant series.

This follows after Tradeoffs.


The Quartermaster, Marist Irio, had given Genique not only a well-tailored wardrobe but also some food for thought and some tips - and piles of bookkeeping.

She'd also given her references to several other people on the ship who had paperwork - the head Chef, for one, the head of Navigation, and the director of the Pit.

To [personal profile] kelkyag's prompt to my orig-fic card. This fills the "Cunning Plan" slot.

Juniper, Kelkathian, and Azdekious are part of my Dragons Next Door setting; its landing page is here.


"What... what the seventeen different sparks?" Kelkathian and Azdekious stared at each other, and then at the van they had suddenly found themselves in. "This isn't team C."

"This isn't Team B." Kelkathian gave a headshake, and wormed out of the backpack. Juniper was unconscious, looking for all the world as if she was napping at home in her bed. "Can't be team A."

"You're telling me we were guarding against three teams of kidnappers..."

"And a fourth one came out of nowhere. I am indeed telling you that." Kelkathian dropped carefully to the floor. The back of the van was filled with plumbing supplies, all of it with the appropriate level of wear for an actual plumber, but something about it still felt wrong to Kel.

"Is she waking up back there?" The voice came from the driver's seat; Kel ducked into Juniper's jacket while the passenger turned around. "I thought I heard something."

"Must be dreaming, then, 'cause she's still out like a light."

"Hunh. Thought a rich kid would be harder to grab than that."

Kel peeked over Junie's pocket and saw the driver's face - nothing exciting, nothing important, and her othersight told her he was nothing but human. Very human, strong and tough and so normal it was almost painful, but this wasn't a dweomer or an elf or an elkin or really anything but a normal human kidnapper...

...who thought Juniper was a rich kid.

"You're sure her parents have money?" The passenger seemed to have the same qualms about this plan that Kelkathian did.

"They live in Smokey Knoll. You tell me a human that could afford a house there who wasn't filthy rich."

The car screeched to a halt. "This is a Smokey Knoll kid?" The passenger's voice was a hiss. That was your cunning plan? To grab a kid from Smokey Knoll?"

Autumn and Summer (and Bishop and Melinda) are characters in my Stranded World setting; this story is later in their lives than most of the stories.


"Let me show you this place."

Summer watched her sister. She had been watching her sister much of her life, it seemed; the way she moved, the way she smiled, the way she seemed to dance through life without a care. She watched the way Autumn smiled with her mouth without smiling with her body; she watched the way she flirted shamelessly and almost never carried through, and the way, when she carried through, it was a dance of the body, without the heart.

There wasn't so much a war anymore, as far as they could tell.

They didn't get any TV anymore, local or cable or anything else. The radio they heard these days was sporadic at best, and there would be weeks where there wasn't anything at all.

But they hadn't seen a returned god in several months, they hadn't seen an army soldier in the last month, and they hadn't seen another Ellehemaei in a couple weeks. They had gotten a couple human refugees - they were a standing house with a standing wall and hedge, burning lights and smoke in the chimney - but the girls fed and equipped them and sent them on their way, if they were over eighteen, and added them to the child collection, otherwise.

This may be in the "Space/Colonies" verse but I am uncertain.


"This is how we've tested since the dawn of time."

Ruttiger's mother, the Dame Anne Halloran, was adamant. Ruttiger himself was not quite as confident. "Are you sure it's needed, mother? To test her for a witch...?" He was, after all, rather fond of the girl in question; he was also a pragmatic young man, and did not really wish to be tarred by association.

"I am certain." Dame Halloran put down her booted foot with a thump. "She has shown all the signs."

The girl in question was not in the room; that wouldn't have been proper. Dame Halloran's seven sisters had her in the back room of the chapel, going through the cleansing rituals that were nearly as old as the test.

"There is a a reason we only have one Head for each House." Adeline stood with her hands loose at her sides. Her chin was up and her lips were a firm line.

"And there is a reason I am an Elder." Brice folded his hands in front of him and stared at Adeline's forehead.

"We don't have room for the Mason family, nor for the Stouts."

They did not know if this was The End - no, not "the end;" the planners didn't acknowledge that word. They didn't know if it was The Cataclysmic Event. At the moment, it was just - just! - a long-running power failure with a side of some food and gas shortages. Family policy was to treat any disaster lasting longer than three days as if it could indeed be The Disaster.

Evangaline was having an argument with the Grannies.

She wasn't having it directly, of course. One did not simply walk into Mordor; one didn't simply confront the Grannies. At least, it wasn't often done, and she hadn't quite gotten up the nerve yet.

But she was doing things they were telling her not to, in ways that they were certain to find out about eventually.
