Autumn 2017 Giraffe (Zebra) Call: Autumn, Autumn (Roundtree)*, Fall, and Falling

It’s time for a Zebra Call, which is a special black-and-white and stripey version of a Giraffe Call.


The theme for the month is Autumn, Autumn (Roundtree)*, Fall, and Falling

There’s a longer post about what this call is for [here]. The short version is: We’re redoing our bathroom and the cabinets I really, really want cost $700 more than our budget.

If you’re interested in Giraffe Calls in general, check out the Giraffe Call: Call tag [here].

Leave a prompt (or several), get a short fic written. 

Tip and get TWO fics written and 100 words/$1.50 tipped

Join my Patreon and get TWO fics written. 

My goal is $500 between new Patreon Patrons and tips (Counting each $1 of Patreon-age as $3)

For every $50 in tips, I will choose a prompter at random and write another story to their prompts (so leave lots of prompts!)

For every multiple of 5 Patreon Patrons we reach (30, 35, 40…) I will do the same. 

Milestones for this Call

$25 – Take-out!  Which is useful, because we don’t have a kitchen sink right now.

$50 – Second fic written to a randomly-chosen prompter

$75 – We get the awesome zebra shower curtain instead of the pretty-neat shower curtain

$100 – Second fic written to a randomly-chosen prompter (and so on at every $X50)

$125 – New towels!  All the new towels!

$150 – Second fic written to a randomly-chosen prompter

$200 – This fic is written to a randomly-chosen tipper or Patron

$300 – we can get the slightly-less-cool second-choice cabinets

$400 – This fic is written to a randomly-chosen tipper or Patron

$450 – Everyone who prompts can choose a story to add another 200 words to.

$500 – New Awesome Cabinets, thank you!

I encourage you to leave as many prompts as you feel like.

Prompts can be general (The Year Autumn Didn’t Come) or specific (Autumn Roundtree deals with Tattercoats); they can be in extant universes of mine (no fanfic please) or in something entirely new.

I also encourage – nay, request! – you to signal boost this far and wide, and to that end, for every signal boost, I will write 100 words of the signal boost story.

Prompt away!

so Autumn Roundtree is a character in my Stranded World setting. I was originally going to use the runner-up in my Patreon Theme Poll as the theme for this Zebra Call, but there was no clear winner, just a 3-way tie between settings.  But Stranded was one of those settings…

Want more?

And on Wordpress…

Take each line of this quote from Florence + the Machine's "Falling" as a separate prompt:

I've fallen out of favor
And I've fallen from grace
Fallen out of trees
And I've fallen on my face
Fallen out of taxis
Out of windows, too
Fell in your opinion
When I fell in love with you

Falling into a faerie ring
First autumn outside Addergoole
The fall of Ozymandias

Autumn Roundtree and the inks of the season.

An pattern of falling leaves.

When the map gives directions by foliage colour....

* Rivals falling into friendship
* That time fall refused to give way to winter
* It all fell together on the Autumnal Equinox
* That time Autumn Roundtree took a great fall. I mean really, it was a seriously excellent fall.

There's one prompt I really wanna give but I think is too "niche" to count so I'm making myself give you two. *cough*

1) Leo and Autumn

2) This poem

Translation from that page:
Unheard of
even in the legendary age
of the awesome gods:
Tatsuta River in scarlet
and the water flowing under it.

So, Autumn Roundtree deals with Tattercoats is WONDERFULLY specific and very much what I want to see.

Also cinnamon and spices and that wonderful autumn smell...

Stranded in Winter

Controlled falling, skydiving, rappelling, hang gliding, pulling out of a dive

Falling down the rabbit hole

Fell off a truck
Fall off the turnip truck

The curtain falls on Team B

Jumping in leaf piles

Did you write to either of those? :)

Ah, and there's the one I misplaced.

Radar tries to make Lam fall in line

Muahaha, *you* have to *choose*! :)

More seriously, combining prompt is ~always fair, especially general ones.

Ooh, I'm in! I'm late, but I'm in.

*A continuation: Shadrach, Meshach, Pelletier, and maybe Solomon? Continuing from your story ending in Pelletier's vision of a possible future with one redeemed brother. One of the boys falls for sure, and for good. The other... well, was Shira seeing what could be, or what would be? Up to you.

I may well commission that one, honestly.

*Another continuation: Drifa, the crow change girl. Falling out of the sky, by choice.

*Any 'verse you like, but I am so imagining dryads here: Pumpkins and pumpkin vines. Not all pumpkins are orange, evidently.

Autumn and/or her siblings meet(s) a zebra somewhere outside of a zoo.

Preparing home for winter: laying in stores, chinking up cracks.

"I swear that hole was not there yesterday!"

An early snow is falling sideways. Or up.
