You’ve got some seriously weird fairy tale references going on, here. Are these from one of Ysabet’s lists, or …? “The Treacherous Sister” is clearly a prompt for the The Aunt Family. There was a plot against Zenobia? Or what *was* Tansy up to, and why? Or …?
Those are from the Aarne-Thompson system, whatever that it; it wasn’t Ysabet’s list, but one the original bingo card creator there put up
The fairy tales are the Aarne-Thompson classifications, as Lyn said; these are ALL OF THE FAIRY TALES IN THE WORLD (or at least in Europe) classified by types. There is a more general list, I think, but this appears to be all the most specific ones.
I’ve run into the system before. I find its categorizations rather baffling — or at least have never tripped over a high-level explanation that made it all make sense to me — and it regularly reminds me of the “obscure” fairy tales that make no sense whatsoever …
There certainly are a lot of those!
Psst, Clare, do you want to prompt?
Hmm. Ooh! Odd couple, Kai and Rozen 😀 (this is me, I just don’t feel like changing accounts)
you have /more than one/ account? *boggleface* 😉 Awesome.
I know, it’s crazy, how could one person possibly need two accounts? 😉
or three or four or five…
The Prompt that starts it all: http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/659011.html finishes a bingo.
I Yam What I Yam: Father Nehemiah: conflict resolution and fae natures.
A Locked Trunk: and Radar sitting on it, hissing.
Locked it! http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/677566.html
Born of a Fish clearly cues Fairy Town. Are they anywhere near the ocean? Or perhaps there’s a pond or fountain, in the overgrown park or elsewhere? Or perhaps it’s more metaphorical, or backstory …
Fishie fish fish http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/683698.html
Mother / Father Knows Best: Stone and his father.
I really love the male uncle concept. Male Aunt concept.
Is he? I’d assumed he’d married in to the family, but the only mention of him I recall is from “What to do about Auntie X”:
ETA: on the aunts landing page, the LJ links for Difficult Relations and What to do about Auntie X are reversed, I think. ETA2: Oh, wait, you mean Stone, not his father? Or you could write more about Willard …
Stone, yes. 🙂
The theft of fish: Beatrix and her cats
Worry: What does Radar think/worry the kitten might be, if she’s not a friend to his humans?
Music lessons for wild animals, or teenagers. What do the family teens want to learn from Eva? Or what does the kitten want to learn from Beryl? What do Eva or Beryl learn along the way?
The Three Languages: talking about Strands
Primal Instincts: Radar’s kitten. What does she want?
Tom Thumb: Inter-cultural relations, and/or the Finch-Thompson-Harris Convention.
The World Tree: on a smaller scale: the tree that anchors Fairy Town?
Heh. Some prompts are sparkier than others. 🙂
Yes indeed! (Also good morning)
Very hard to guess which ones those might be. 🙂 Good afternoon!
Hello to you as well!
Butterfly of Transformation: hanging out on Genique’s shoulder when it’s not fluttering about the rest of the ship.
Fear: what’s going to happen when Junie wakes up?
Patchwork world: worlds may be interlaced like the layers of double knitting, but you *ought* to need a gate or a key or both to cross over. (Fairy Town or Aunts?)
Greed: Genique and the pirates: you bet *what*?
Yep, he did http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/691458.html
The Magic Bird Heart: Chirp chirp tink ouch!
Accidents happen, alas. But more rattles can be made.
Biting the foot: the erbiss (at work or play)
The Smiths’ pet erbiss, Tay-tay, appears in Fears, and … possibly other stories, but that’s the one I remember it best from.
aaah-ha! Thank yoU!

I think there are prompts for all the squares now, so: Free Space: A retelling of or play on a classic fairy tale. Bonus points if it’s in one of your existing ‘verses.
