(still taking questions/suggestions, if you want me to talk about anything in particular - mixing up my responses to those with other stuff as I go)

As part of my "dammit I will be more fannish" decision, I signed up for an [community profile] hc_bingo card. The official bingo period ends, uh, tomorrow (Jan. 5), so I suspect I will not succeed on that front, but the amnesty period lasts through June 1, so I still have a shot at getting something done, at least.

My hc_bingo card:

family
burns cursed depression brainwashing / deprogramming
unrequited pining
bullet wounds on the run shipwrecked allergic reaction
rejection accept injury to protect someone
WILD CARD
deadline / time bomb amnesia
crucifixion protection minor illness or injury loss of powers hazing / bullying
sensory deprivation
corporal punishment magical trouble betrayal Stockholm syndrome

I have no idea how this works -- does this mean that you'll write some certain amount of words for each of the tiles, or only some of the tiles? Really cool h/c list, though. I'd read all those.

Agreed! I am particularly nuts about the center horizontal row... rejection, accept injury to protect someone, Wild Card (any prompt from the prompt list), deadline/time bomb, and amnesia.

Arduinna was saying the other day that it basically reads like a Person of Interest episode. :D :D :D

Only 500 words makes a fill!! That's the length of a Shack!

The world can always use more Shacks. And if the cold weather has you disinclined to write a proper Canadian Shack, what about something more tropical? Surely characters stumble into similarly isolated and idyllic Island Shacks ALL THE TIME.

I mean, outside of the shipwrecked one, your bingo card is like the entirety of Steve and Bucky's relationship.

If I understood how these things work I'd be tempted to sign up myself.

I find it pretty mellow--I mean, nothing bad happens if you ask for a card but never post a completed bingo (...ask me how I know :D ). And as Arduinna mentioned above, we're heading into the long amnesty period.

Thus far, I've asked for three cards--one I never acted on really, but last year's I used for prompts/inspiration and wrote a bunch of pocket stories, though I never did go back to the comm and post the links as a bingo...I think I never officially finished the row I picked?

And then there's my most recent card, which Arduinna has reminded me I might want to post on my journal. It's not quite as good as hers, but I think it's pretty darn good.

...huh, I took a look back and apparently I *did* write stories for a whole row. Why did I not post links to them as an official bingo??? WHO KNOWS, I AM A MYSTERY WRAPPED IN AN ENIGMA WRAPPED IN A BLANKET.

dorinda: From "Person of Interest": Reese gazes at an unseeing Finch, with a pink heart in the air between them. (POI-gazing)
From: [personal profile] dorinda
Yeah, what she said, all the cards are there for the inspiration... and the whole list of prompts from which the cards are constructed is there in the sidebar, which is a nice read. (List of mostly-painful prompts = "nice read". Heh. Yeah, h/c fan here. :D )

I was also thinking, if I hadn't been able to get my own card, I could just use the list of prompts + a random number generator to prompt myself.
