Giraffe Call Open: “Survival”

Giraffe Call Open!!

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

Leave me your prompts about surviving – emotional survival, physical survival, survivalists, human-vs-nature, whatever you want. Any setting of mine or no setting at all. It just has to involve “survival.”

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).

I almost forgot! For every NEW DONOR or NEW PROMPTER (please tell me when donating/prompting if you are new!), I will write one SETTING PIECE (i.e., Demifiction, a piece of historical fact, you name it) for a poll-chosen setting/question.

Current count: 1 new prompter

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

Edited to add: OR add paid time to my DW account. Out of time again!

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 one of 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 $100, I’ll write a 1500-word story based on the input of everyone who prompted for this call.

At $125, I’ll add three more 500-word stories, chosen at random from all prompters.

Have fun! Prompt!

  1. Ooooh! More fun! Prompts: It hasn’t stopped raining for days… The journey to safety begins with one step. What do you do when you’re being hunted?

  2. * That day ____ realized that yes, they were the baddies and those are the heroes coming into view… (phrasing based on the Mitchell and Webb sketch Are we the baddies?) * Convincing the enemy to work together to ensure survival * Academics as a set of survival skills * When it turns out you’ve been preparing for the wrong crisis * An extrovert stuck on a long mission with introverts

  3. Stranded world: Autumn, surviving heartbreak. Or possibly Winter meeting Tattercoats. Dragons Next Door, Junie and the kidnappers. Is “bring her back right away” going to be enough to get (half of) team D out of very hot water? Dragons Next Door: Jin and the very scary bank robber. Space Accountant: surviving an unwanted marriage (preferably sans financial ruin). Unicorn/Factory: Guilian, surviving being Administrator. (I think Cleaning House did not make it onto the landing page?) Aunts: Beryl surviving Radar and her own curiosity to make it to adulthood (and possibly Aunthood). Aunts: Deborah, surviving being a pregnant Aunt.
