Unsold Poems from the December 2, 2014 Poetry Fishbowl

The following poems from the December 2, 2014 Poetry Fishbowl are currently available. Poems may be sponsored via PayPal -- there's a permanent donation button on my LiveJournal profile page -- or you can write to me and discuss other methods.

There are still verses left in the linkback poem "House of Cards."  Linking to this page will reveal new verses of that.




"The Adventure Building" -- 319 lines, $159.50 (Polychrome Heroics) SOLD
This led to the free-verse poem "The Adventure Building."  Hannah takes the kids to a children's museum in Onion City with a fun organization system.

"After the Work Is Done" -- 25 lines, $10 (Hart's Farm)
Your Hart's Farm prompt actually turned into a poem about games in all four seasons.  "After the Work Is Done" is written in free verse.

"The Anything Goes Games" -- 82 lines, $41 (Polychrome Heroics) SOLD
Your prompt about balanced sports connected with something I've known for a while -- that it was not the naries or the superheroes who addressed that problem, but the supervillains.  The result is the free-verse poem "The Anything Goes Games."

"As Long as There Are Games to Play" -- 250 lines, $125 (Polychrome Heroics) SOLD
From this I got the free-verse poem "As Long as There Are Games to Play."  Mallory is lonely and tired.  Damask coax her into playing games, and they learn a little more about each other in the process.

"Bluff and Show" -- 340 lines, $170 (Polychrome Heroics) SOLD
This inspired the free-verse poem "Bluff and Show."  Stan invites Lawrence to a presentation about tolerance and strategy games.  Lawrence isn't quite sure what to make of Simon.
(This poem is a prerequisite for "What I Love About Games.")

"Carnival Candy" -- 200 lines, $100 (Frankenstein's Family)
Your Frankenstein prompt inspired the free-verse poem "Carnival Candy." Victor enjoys exploring the games at a carnival, but Igor takes exception to some of its attractions.

"Chances Old and New" -- 104 lines, $52 (Path of the Paladins) SOLD
Dreamwidth prompts inspired the free-verse poem "Chances Old and New."  Shahana and Ari take refuge from the rain in a tavern where some mercenaries of Gorrein are getting bored with the games they know.  But the paladins have a different game set ...

"Foursquare" -- 138 lines, $69 (Polychrome Heroics) In microfunding now
The prompt about finally getting to play inspired the free-verse poem "Foursquare."  Hannah organizes a game with Lakia and several other children at SPOON.

"Games and Catastrophes" -- 32 lines, $15 (Schrodinger's Heroes)
This led to "Games and Catastrophes," written in unrhymed quatrains.  Ash and Alex love game night.  Schrodinger loves game night.  Evil!Schrodinger has a different idea as to what constitutes entertainment.

"Head Above the Crowd" -- 39 lines, $15 (Polychrome Heroics)
The referee appears in the free-verse poem "Head Above the Crowd."  Noah invites Danso to watch a basketball game, and the referee has an interesting gift.

"Puzzling People" -- 18 lines, $10 (Path of the Paladins) SOLD
Your post about gods inspired the free-verse poem "Puzzling People."  Zyweet the Trickster plays a game with Yasun, God of Healing and Talaton, God of Balance.

"Racing the Whirlwind" -- 179 lines, $89.50 (Polychrome Heroics)
Another training game appeared in the free-verse poem "Racing the Whirlwind."  Eggrace is a courier for the Westbord SPOON base, with a rare delicacy in teleporting.  He gets into a contest of skill with another young teleporter who is also famous for her smooth ride.

"What I Love About Games" -- 230 lines, $115 (Polychrome Heroics)
For the gaming group, I wrote the free-verse poem "What I Love About Games."  Simon joins Stan's family for game night.  Lawrence does his best to adapt to this new element.
(Available for posting after "Bluff and Show" has been sponsored and published.)

Sponsorship

I PM'ed you twice on this, before and after causing a donation to be sent your way. This donation was intended to sponsor "Puzzling People", "The Anything Goes Games", and a previous poem I prompted ("Since Reason is Incapable"); to finish off "Save The City"; and to start "Foursquare". I suspect one of us needs to set something to keep my PMs from being marked as spam. I'll look on my end.

Gah. Only the donation came through. PayPal messages do seem to arrive reliably, which means if you put the name and price list of the poems in there (usually it gives a box for a message) then that works. Email is reasonably reliable.

I don't know why the LJ private message flaked. Did you get one from me? I sent you a message yesterday via PM and then earlier today an email in reply to the PayPal note.

Noted and logged. I just posted "Puzzling People" and will get to the others as soon as I can.

I'm not even sure where to look for that, hence my icon.
