Family Ties Bingo Card 11-5-18

I'm pinch-hitting with the Family Ties Bingo Fest over on [community profile] allbingo from November 5-December 5. This focuses on families of all types. (See all my 2018 bingo cards.)

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. I've had a few requests for this and the results have been awesome so far. 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.

Underlined prompts have been filled.

Tuesday will also be Election Day in America. See my Voting Guides post if you need information on that topic.

Poetry in Microfunding:

There are three open epics. We're full until at least one of these concludes.

"Energy, Made Visible" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv and has 3 new verses. Shiv really wants to keep going with the therapy questions.

"Only If It Is Embraced" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Damask. Pain's Gray deals with Ham picking on Keane.

"A Cave Swarming with Strange Forms of Life" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Iron Horses. Kenzie goes to Pretty Ears for counseling.

The weather has been chilly and wet. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a big flock of goldfinches, a flock of sparrows, several house finches, a pair of cardinals, a mourning dove, and a squirrel. Flowers are done blooming.  Most of the fruit has fallen, although some types cling to the trees. Some trees finally got around to turning colors, a few bright, most sloppy and drab as if they overslept and rushed through the job.
