From My Prompts

These are some things that people have created based on my prompts.

"Unicorn Chase" by aldersprig comes from the Giraffe Call and belongs to the Unicorn/Factory setting.  A unicorn appears in the Factory and causes much consternation.

wyld_dandelyon is writing a story based on my prompt about fashion colors.

"On the Trail" is an excerpt about hunting evil unicorns by clare_dragonfly.  See also the previous story featuring Kaede, "Bigfoot Hunting," which is fully visible.  I'm always thrilled to see a genderflexy protagonist!
