Morning!

It's morning, and before I start mudding, sanding, priming, and all that fun stuff, I'll spend a couple minutes on the Giraffe Call.

The call is still open:
On LJ - http://aldersprig.livejournal.com/316593.html
and on DW - http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/170868.html

The incentive linkback story continues here - http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/171652.html and on LJ - http://aldersprig.livejournal.com/317185.html

I received a mystery donation, not from the Giraffe Button, not sure if it was an Addergoole donation or a Giraffe donation. If that was you, please let me know. :-)

That donation aside, we're at $25 right now.




$10 to go to get to the first incentive level!

Thicker Than... A story of Stranded World, for the Giraffe Call

For rix_scaedu's prompt, combined with ankewehner's prompt

This is in the Stranded World Setting, which has a landing page here (and on LJ).


Mellie's roommate was fighting with her mother again. They could hear it from the other side of the room, easily, so the three of them had headed into the hallway.

"I'd say it gets worse around the holidays," Mellie murmured, "but it's hard to tell. I'd need a decibel meter to get an accurate read."

"That's.... pretty awful," Bishop frowned. "How long has it been going on?"

"As far as I can tell, since the first week of school. I'm not sure what's going on, exactly, but it seems like her mom has a new complaint every week."

Uh-Oh... A story of #Addergoole, for the Giraffe Call

For cluudle's prompt.

Wren is a character in Addergoole, a Fourth Cohort student who, last year, was Kept by Phelen, also a Fourth Cohort student. They have a small story, "Poaching," in Other Sides, the weblit anthology.

For more on Wren and Ray's father before their birth, see Too Human



Addergoole Year 5, not at Addergoole
Life wasn't as fun since Wren had gone away to school.

Raylan wandered around the neighborhood, watching the leaves fall, mumbling incoherently to himself. A reputation for being just as crazy as his sister had kept the bullies off of him, even if, unlike her, he had to fake it.

He wondered if she'd come home for the holidays this year. She hadn't, last year, and Dad had made a couple closed-door phone calls and come back to say, seeming content, "your sister is very involved with her new boyfriend. I'm sure she'll snap out of it eventually."

Mother Knows... a story of Rin & Girey, for the Giraffe Call @inventrix

For kelkyag's prompt.

This is in the Reiassan Setting, which has a landing page here (and on LJ). It comes after everything else I've written in timeline for Rin & Girey.

Short version of the story - Rin has been at war, acting as a healer in the Callanthe army. The Callanthe beat the Bitrani (this time), and she took as a prisoner of war the Bitrani noble Girey. Hijinks ensue.



Rin's father had pulled Girey out of the room the minute they'd arrived, with something that sounded like "I want to ask you about this ancient Bitrani artifact." It had left Rin and her mother alone, sipping tea and staring out her parents' large picture window at the city below.
