Summer 2016 Giraffe Call

Welcome to my summer giraffe Call!

The theme today is “When the best answer is FIRE”

Please feel free to leave as many prompts as come to your mind!

The Prompt Call is now closed to everyone except: tippers, new Patreons, people who have never
prompted in a Giraffe Call of mine before, and people whose signal boost brought me a new person. However, if we cross a combined new friend/new Patron/tip threshold by 9 p.m. 6/27, there will be a second day of prompt-calling with a new theme!

I will write a short flash fiction or the beginning of a story (approx 150-300 words) for the first twelve prompters who post their prompts within the next 24 hours.

I will start posting stories around 7:30 a.m. Eastern time and continue until I run out of prompters/until 9:30 p.m., and then pick up again tomorrow morning with whatever’s left.

I’ll write a second (or more) story for you if:

  • You tip or pledge to my patreon
  • You are a new prompter – don’t forget to tell me!
  • Your signal boost brings in a new prompter

If you qualify for a second-plus story, I will also waive the twelve-prompter limit and the 24-hour limit for you.

Please remember to tell me if you are a new prompter, AND what/who brought you to this Giraffe Call!
If your Paypal or Patreon account name does not match your posting/prompting account name, please remember to leave a note letting me know you tipped/pledged.

Any tip you leave will buy you more words, at my reduced Giraffe Call rate of $5/300 words.

In Addition, if I receive $25 in tips, $10 in new Pledges, or 10 new followers between LiveJournal and Dreamwidth – or a combination thereof – I will run the Giraffe Call for a second day, with a second theme, and a second chance to prompt! The prompt options for tomorrow are currently tied at “Green Thumbs,” “Impossible Ideas,” and “Summer ritual celebrations.”

  1. The Smiths are smiths, IIRC. So, professional dragons working on a commission with fire and hot metal? Jimmy saves the day. Traditional neighborhood summer bonfire in Fairy Town. More of Wild Card. (Or anything else involving the Opinionated Tarot Deck. I bet it’s not Eva’s choice of teaching deck …) Zenobia’s glassworking. Baking, tea, or hot cocoa. Genique dealing with some of what passes for record-keeping systems on the pirate ship. The Unburnt Tree. ETA: Esha and Daxton’s choice of wedding rituals. SQUEAK!

  2. Invasion Sometimes forest fires are necessary. For SCIENCE! I’m here via rix_scaedu’s boost, and I believe I count as a new prompter – this is certainly my first Giraffe call, but I may have prompted on something else since I joined your Patrons several months ago, I can’t recall for sure. (I’m Scott Maitland on Twitter and Patreon if that helps.)
