As far as the eye can see.  :D  After the rain we got recently, it's warm and damp out tonight, something fireflies find very romantic.  So they are all out there with their lights on, making more fireflies.  <3 

Hurt Comfort Bingo Card 6-16-17

Below is my card for the Round 8, 2017 [community profile] hc_bingo fest. This fest encourages the creation of boundary-pushing material that explores what happens when things go horribly wrong and people actually care about each other. Remember, things always go wrong; what matters is how you deal with that. Some of the content may be NSFW. Read the FAQ and rules first. The signup post is here. (See all my 2017 bingo cards.)

I thought this might be an effective way to attract some new readers. It's also useful for developing some of my more danger-prone series.

If you'd like to sponsor a particular square, especially if you have an idea for what character, series, or situation it would fit -- talk to me and we'll work something out. This is a good opportunity for those of you with favorites that don't always mesh well with the themes of my monthly projects. I may still post some of the fills for free, because I'm using this to attract new readers; but if it brings in money, that means I can do more of it. That's part of why I'm crossing some of the bingo prompts with other projects, such as the Poetry Fishbowl.

Warning: One of my readers noted that many of these prompts are "extra dark." I didn't notice it so much because I tend to gauge based on the tone of a given piece. If you're sensitive to just the prompts, you may wish to exercise caution.

Underlined prompts have been filled.

Wonder Woman

You know you've picked a good one when your husband does this.  Mate selection = WIN.

One time I was in a grocery store line, listening to all the women complaining about all the things their men wouldn't do.  Not having a dog in that fight, I didn't say anything.  Apparently this was weird, because after a while one of them turned to me and said, "What about you, sweetie?"

I shrugged and said, "Mine cooks East Indian feast food."

This is what you get when you select for personality and life skills, rather than a pretty face and a big dick.
