March Giraffe Call: Spring Cleaning Lyn's Queue!

The call for prompts is now OPEN!

I am now taking prompts on the theme of "Weren't you going to write...?" Leave one or many prompts, and I will write (over the next month) at least one microfic (150-500 words) to each prompter.

This month's theme is a little different; it's an attempt to knock some of the balls out of my rafters (where they get stuck when I have too many balls in the air). Did you hear me say "I want to write about...?" or think I should write more on a story? Now's the time to bring it up.

Need ideas?Collapse )


Prompting is free! But Donations are always welcome.

If you have donated, I will write to one extra prompt of your.


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

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

At $30 in donations, we'll get take out.
Reached!

At $40 in donations, I will post an additional 1000-2000-word fic on the subject of the audience's choice.
Reached!
At $50, anyone who donated $7.50 or more will have a copy of "Alder by Post" mailed to them if they wish

At $70, I will write two extra 500-word continuations - chosen by prompters picked by random number generator

At $75, we will upgrade our wheelbarrow to an AWESOME CARD

At $100, I will write three extra 500-word continuations - chosen by prompters picked by random number generator

At $130, I will record a podcast of an audience-choice story and post it for everyone to read.

At $150, we'll upgrade the awesome cart to awesome-cart-with-sides and be able to haul EVERYTHING!< Also I will release an e-book of all of the fiction written to this call.

If I reach $200, I will hold a mid-month Call on a single setting of the readers' choice. Everyone who tipped will get wordcount-and-a-half

Navigating Lannamer, a drabble of RIn & Girey for the Giraffe Call

For rix_scaedu's Prompt.

Reiassan has a landing page here.

After "Under Scrutiny".


Girey followed Rin out into the hallways of the labyrinthine mess her people called an Imperial Palace. "Do you ever loose people in here?"

"All the time. Usually strangers; children learn young to navigate by the mosaics on the floor." She pointed at the thin green border and thicker red line on the patterns under their feet. "See? This is how I know I'm in the right wing."

Voices, a story of Bug Invasion for the March Giraffe Call.

For [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith's Prompt.

After All in Your Head and Out of Their Minds.


All round, hosts were rejecting their symbiotes. The Earth was rejecting the Bugs. The faeries were taunting the invaders, the ghosts were haunting them; even the Things were fighting off the aliens. Nobody wanted them there anymore. Nobody wanted a creature in its head. Nobody wanted the bugs on their planet.

Nobody, it seemed, except Josh.

^*^They are rej^*^ecting their riders,*^* his symbiote whispered in his mind. ^*^They are kil^*^ling them.^*^ The simple statement came with layers of meaning: We didn't know they could do that. No race has ever rejected us before. Are you going to reject me? Are you going to kill me.
