April Giraffe Call: Celebrations and Special Events!

The call for prompts is now OPEN!

I am now taking prompts on the theme of Celebrations and Special Events Leave one or many prompts, and I will write (over the next month) at least one microfic (150-500 words) to each prompter.

Prompts can be related to one of my extant setting (See my landing page) or they can be for something completely different.

Prompting is free! But Donations are always welcome.

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

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, T & I will get delicious cake for our birthdays!

At $40 in donations, I will post an additional 1000-2000-word fic on the subject of the audience's choice.

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 $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 $145, T & I will buy ourselves a reel mower!

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

Reunion, a story of #Addergoole for the April Giraffe Call

For Friendly Anon's Prompt.

Addergoole has a landing page here.

Addergoole, Year 16 - 10-year-Reunion for the Third Cohort

They'd left the kids at home, although the event had childcare. The longer it was until their children knew about Addergoole, the better.

Ayla would have preferred to wait five or six more years, until their oldest was called here, or, better yet, not ever return at all, but Io had classmates she missed, so they packed up, asked a favour of her brother, and headed for the damn reunion.

It was only when they were getting off the plane that Ayla realized that her unflappable wife was nervous, her hands shaking, her skin pale. "Io...?"
