Tarot Bingo Card 4-30-19

Here is my card for the Tarot Bingo Fest over in [community profile] allbingo.   It offers two different decks, Rider-Waite and Wildwood.  You can use just the Major Arcana or the full deck.  Mix and match if you wish.  The fest celebrates symbols as a percussion instrument. All fandoms and original works are welcome, in any format or length. I decided to use the Wildwood Tarot because the auxiliary card names are evocative. The fest runs from May 1-31. (See all my 2019 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.

Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, May 7

This is an advance announcement for the Tuesday, May 7, 2019 Poetry Fishbowl. This time the theme will be "Officer Pink: Aftermath of the Raid." I'll be soliciting ideas for police, medics, counselors, other first responder, superheroes, supervillains, mengeles, other mad scientists, centaurs, Turq's cohort, other trauma survivors, farmers, rescuing people, getting rescued, staring, speaking out, traveling, exploring new discoveries, creating connections, teaching each other, counseling, coming of age, learning what you can (and can't) do, dealing with the past, confronting abusers, recovering from setbacks, making new friends, the Umsetzung Complex, the Technical College of New Jutland, town of Ava, Douglas County, Bluehill, Conrad's farm, Iron County, public institutions, parks, counseling centers, homes, outdoor classrooms, trauma, stress, types of abuse, mad science, recovery, friendship, family, reunion, free will, personal growth, frustration, discrimination, determination, imprint vulnerability, failure, success, and poetic forms in particular.

The Officer Pink thread has been exploring this arc for a while.  "When You Strike and Overcome Him" begins the raid on the Umsetzung Complex.  I have made notes for further poems about Officer Pink and Turq, including the raid arc, if you want to use those as inspiration for prompts.

I have a linkback poem, "Hyggelig," (10 verses, Hart's Farm). 

If you're interested, mark the date on your calendar, and please hold actual prompts until the "Poetry Fishbowl Open" post next week.  (If you're not available that day, or you live in a time zone that makes it hard to reach me, you can leave advance prompts.  I am now.)  Meanwhile, if you want to help with promotion, please feel free to link back here or repost this on your blog.
