September Bingo! Part 1 of 2

Hi, all! Happy September, and welcome to this month's challenge- bingo!
Thank you to everyone who has suggested fandoms for some custom cards. I underestimated demand and need a couple more days to get them completed- so bingo will start today, and will end at midnight eastern US time on October 7th. I'll have the custom cards up in a separate post on or by 9/7! If you haven't suggested a fandom and would like to, here's where to do so.

Part II: Fandom-focused Bingo Cards are Here!

Self-Care and Tending Prompts
I wanted to do something slightly different than hurt/comfort, but with that kind of theme in mind. So here are some prompts that can have your characters taking good care of themselves or each other. All sorts of angsty potential, too, isn't there? Flashbacks, maybe even! I hope these inspire.

Genre and Trope Bingo
Mix 'em, match 'em - put your OTP, OT3 or the whole darn gang through some new and interesting things....

Image Prompts
Thanks to the web site unsplash for these free-to-everyone images!

There was a day I might have had the breathing room to make an image map for the cards, but... not so much right now. So if you'd like the larger verisons of all these images they are ALL tucked behind this handy tag:

Plane Wingtip

Lighting a Match

Waving or drowning?

Who's a pretty doggie?

Which side of the mushroom to choose?

Fancy Soap - Seaside Motiff (I want this!)

My Way or...

Too Much Love....

Turn left at Walden Pond...

Live Life in Color...

First Date?

Less Traveled....destination unclear

As pretty as it is caffeinated

Pretty spray of flowers

Luscious full moon on the water

Needy, much? Or just out of patience? ;)

It'll last longer...

Finally, for today, here is the fine print! Fills, Rules and Deadline! Also behind a cut for lots of worrrrds....

[Spoiler (click to open)]
Possible accomplishments are:
2x2 Bingo
1 Square – Fill 1 prompt on a chosen card
Doubles – Complete 2 prompts on that card
Blackout – Fill all 4 prompts on that card

3x3 Bingo
1 Square – Fill 1 prompt on your card
Line – Complete 3 prompts in any one line: across, down, diagonal
Corners – Fill 4 prompts in the corners of said card
Blackout – Complete all 9 prompts of said card

To achieve 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 - 2 prompts in one work requires that work to be 200+ words long to qualify, and so on.

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

Interpret the prompts however you wish: There’s no wrong or right, only your interpretation.

Bingos must be completed by Sunday, October 7th 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 squee for you and share in the bingo joy. Whatever you choose to do in that regard, do comment here by 10/8ish to say you achieved a bingo and which card and bingo type you achieved so we can do up a reward for you!

Speaking of which....rewards! They are:

2x2 cards
1 Square - participatoin icon
2 squares - a personalized participation banner
2x2 bingo blackout - a personalized bingo mini-blackout banner

3x3 cards
Line - a personalized participation banner
Corners - a personalized participation banner
Blackout - a personalized bingo blackout banner, and one of these two options:
- a ficlet of 200-300 words (fandom and characters or theme of your choosing)
- 5 icons or other sort of graphic (sigtag, etc) from the fandom(s) or themes of your choosing.

Good luck! And come back to get your fandom cards 10/7.

I'm not going to have time to do more than one bingo (unfortunately), so fill free to skip my fandom cards and I'll choose one of the above if that's easier for you OR if one of my fandoms happens to coincide with somebody else's fandom, that'll work too as far as I'm concerned. :)

Thanks- I'll keep that in mind! Will see what I can do, though I'll hope to make you a card or two.

Just curious, but what is whump!fic?
Sep. 6th, 2018 04:02 am (UTC)
It's basically any fic that puts a character through misery - mostly of a physical nature. To quote the link below, it's a form of hurt/comfort that is heavy on the hurt.


Here's a short, G rated H50 Steve McGarret whump story (https://archiveofourown.org/works/817292) I wrote:

Michael Shanks (Stargate SG1) described it at a con back in the day as “so you like the guy, but you like to see him beat!” Which got a pretty raucous reaction!

Absolutely! And I get a kick out of writing & reading fics like that. (There might be something wrong with me.)
Sep. 6th, 2018 03:21 pm (UTC)
Lol... that's the beauty of fanfic: Always reassuring to know we're not the only ones who like a genre. :)
Sep. 6th, 2018 11:50 am (UTC)
LOL. I think half of my 2015/16 NaNo novel was whump!fic. I didn't choose that bingo card, but I might have to do a square just for the fun of it.

Really enjoyed your story even though I haven't watched either H50 version.
Sep. 6th, 2018 03:22 pm (UTC)
Thanks very much! I think it's one of my better short fics. I remember it felt like it wrote itself, almost.
Sep. 13th, 2018 09:29 pm (UTC)
I think I'm a little, okay, completely obsessed with bingo! Wonder how many I can finish today while at the library until 8? :D I love so many of these!
Sep. 15th, 2018 05:23 pm (UTC)
I know I'm late in asking this, but can we take prompts and create our own card?
Sep. 16th, 2018 01:23 am (UTC)
You know, I'm good with that - I was thinking of suggesting it, in fact!
Sep. 16th, 2018 06:49 pm (UTC)
Cool. :)

Bingo Blackout 3x3 Self Care & Tending Prompts
I wrote 1624 words of original fic from my "On the Dotted Line" universe. Here is the link.

And I wrote a stray whump!fic (412 words) which is here.

RE: Bingo Blackout 3x3 Self Care & Tending Prompts
Excellent! Thank you for sharing. Interesting reads, even without context. :) Next month is original fic month on the comm - am hoping to make the most of that, myself, and progress on a semi-original WIP (i.e. fanfic based, but so AU it might as well be original).

Re: Bingo Blackout 3x3 Self Care & Tending Prompts
Thanks for reading. Original fic month sounds great. I like to write non-fanfic things from time to time based off prompts so that'll be good for me and hopefully will give me more to flesh out in the On the Dotted Line 'verse - sometimes it feels like I'm writing things to add to the story, at others it feels like fanfic based on my original story.
