Bingo 2021! Our Next Long Challenge...

Hello, and welcome to our Bingo challenge for April/May of 2021! Woo hoo! I do love some bingo- hope you do, too. First, off the top, my thanks to agdhani for providing the vast majority of our prompts in a jiffy- and making it look easy, too! Thank you, thank you for that!

Here are the ways you can use them to achieve a bingo and claim a reward.

The Rules!

What constitutes a fill?
Words: At least 100 words per prompt, of any sort: Fic, non-fic (meta, journal entry, RPF). You can use prompts alone or combine them in a single work - 3 prompts in one work requires that work to be 300+ words long to qualify, etc.

Make 2 icons per prompt
Make 1 Wallpaper or other-type 'large' banner or image
Make 1 Gifset

Prompts can be used/interpreted however you like! Also, re: the Tropes prompts- if you’re not familiar with one, you can use the search tool along the very top of the tvtropes.org page- they will have a ton of info for you about the prompt that will illustrate it well.

Bingos must be completed by May 31st at 11:59pm US EDT. You can post anywhere you prefer: here, AO3, journal, personal blog. We're on the honor-system, no need to link us to them if you don't feel like it, but it'd be most appreciated if you'd share them here on this post, or with a post of your own on 1_million_words so we can all jump up and down together for you, and share in the bingo joy. And please comment here by June 1, to say you achieved a bingo and which card and bingo type you achieved, so we can do up a reward for you!

And now… tiny little drumroll for….

Daily Count Challenge to shanachie_quill

I got off to a late start, we finally got our car back so we had a lot to do. I did manage to get some writing done. I got my H/C April challenge done which I also wrote for the Pool Party, I have never written Men in Black before. I got some writing done on my big bang due on May 1st, slow but surely I am making my way through that fic. So I wrote over 3k today which I consider pretty good.

Off to you shanachie_quill may your muses be kind.
