Let’s Have a Giraffe Call: Animalia (#promptcall)

Giraffe Call Closed!

You can always get more words by donating, however.

The call will be open for *one week* from time of posting, and the theme is Animalia.

What’s this theme include? Centaurs and fauns, bull-boys and fox-girls, talking cats and telepathic pink horses. It includes transfurry things and sentient animal things, moddies and Changes and animal-shaped aliens. In short, if it’s somehow an animal/person, it counts.

Leave a prompt, and I will write a micro/flash-fic. Leave as many prompts as you want; I will answer at least one for each person (although I may use more than one prompt in a fic).

Bonus points and an extra 50 words/extra microfic if you prompt in the style of the Animalia book) (it’s a really good book) OR if you somehow manage to come up with an animalia prompt for this month’s theme setting, Reiassan.

Animalia sample pages here, here, here, here, and here

Want more words, or just really like something you read? Drop some money in the tip jar!

(the tip jar is a kitty for reasons)

For every $1 you donate, I will write 75-100 words on the Giraffe story of your choice. Donate more than $1, and I’ll write a second fic to your prompts.

And the more money donated, the more I’ll write!

At $25, T. & I get take-out. Thai, I think, though it may be Indian.

at $40, I will commission a piece of character art from a crowdfunded artist

At $50, I will write an extra fic for everyone.

At $75, three prompters chosen at random will get an extra 500-word story written to their prompt

At $80, I will commission another piece of character art from a crowdfunded artist

Have fun! Prompt!

  1. The only animal in Reiassan that I can think of offhand is the goats. Does anyone ever seem to overly… resemble a goat? Dream of being a goat because it’s probably a simpler life (but then have their daydream get out of control because actually, no, it’s not simpler at _all_)? What are the other animals there?

  2. Reiassan has Goat-wives. How much better a fit for Animalia do you want? 🙂 What did Eszhettozh’s second eldest grand-daughter go on to do? Reiassan also has talking swords that used to be people. Have any of the goat-wives continued in such a way, as herder’s crooks or in the carved and polished skulls of goats or maybe as a drinking horn? (What *do* the steampunk-era folks make of the talking weapons? Or are those all long lost or faded?) And I’m sure there’s some holiday where people dress up as goats (and possibly hold cart races — see, say, Lowell’s human dog sled competition). The harpies next door — or the centaurs down the street — meet (any of) the people trying to kidnap Junie.

  3. Freshfaced apprentice has fireside chat with Archmage mentor who has done enough magic to pretty much be an intelligent feral
