Untangling Knots, a continuation of Stranded World for @Anke

This is a continuation of Tangles and Knots commissioned by [personal profile] anke.

It is part of my Stranded World series.

There was a knot sitting on the skein of reality, a heavy knot with complex weaving that spoke of intentional tying and tangling. Winter walked away from the camp of trailers and RV’s, walked to the small town’s corner store, and passed his suit jacket to the old man sitting at the picnic table there.

“That’s a nice coat.”

“Custom tailored. But I don’t need it where I’m going. I need something less obvious.”

The old man’s bleary eyes turned sharp for a moment. “Son, you’re going to have to change more than the coat for that.”

Winter undid his tie and added it to the sportcoat, then pulled the elastic out of his ponytail. He unbuttoned the first two buttons of his shirt and untucked it, so that it hung sloppily over his belt, then ran his hands through his hair until it was no longer tidy.

A Start, a story for the Orig-Fic Bingo

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.

January's Bingo Card!

And now I have this:

a favorite placepromises madenightmaresoutnumberedlove at first sight
a cunning plan[knowledge]managementhallucinations /visions[honor]
[test/exam][flirting][PICK ANYTHING][youth]innocent
unwelcome guest[fast & loose]betrayalfriendshipexhaustion

holy, holy

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 entry was originally posted at You can comment here or there.

Addergoole/Criminal Minds Xover for @Rix_Scaedu, Part IV

This began here with a meme; it takes part after Rix's guest fic here (and click "next" for the second part.)
It continued here and here.

How can you...?

"Magic," Derek answered. It was going to change everything, but that didn't mean he wasn't going to be honest.

"Magic, Morgan, come on..."

"Look, you said you wouldn't ask how I knew. So don't ask." He gestured at the floor. "The dig teams can get the bodies now. Why don't you and I work on the book?"

"Derek, what do you know about languages?" Reid frowned. "I mean..."

A Place Description (@korionfray)

So, the writer in my attic, K Orion Fray, sends out a weekly writing inspiration e-mail, which includes a writing prompt.

A prompt from several weeks ago:

Take a ten minute chunk and write something new coming into your scene. If you described a person, make them notice their setting. If you wrote about a place, have someone walk into it. If you described an object, make something interact with it. The trick here is to not duplicate what you did before--so don't write two people yet! Be sure to keep yourself to ten minutes this time around. Here's a timer you can use, if you need help with that!

Description in line is something I still need work at. So I kept on from the last description prompt and here we go.

March Is Women's History Month - day five: Regine

March is Women's History Month, and so for March I'm doing vignettes about or questions regarding any of my female characters, one/day from the 10th-31st.

The prompt post is here; please add more prompts ;-)

This one comes from [Bad username: thnidu,]Addergoole</a>, which also has a landing page here. (Stay tuned for the entirely-new rewrite of Book One of Addergoole, coming soon!)
