Poll: General Fund for February 17, 2015 Poetry Fishbowl

The general fund currently contains $39.  That is enough to put a big chunk into one epic, or split between two, so you've got some options.  Everyone is eligible to vote in this poll.  I'll keep it open until at least Thursday afternoon.  If there's a clear answer then, I'll close it.  Otherwise I may leave it open a little longer.


Given the amount in the general fund, you can either route it all into one poem or you can split it between two.  If you choose to split it, you'll be funding one Fiorenza poem, and one from a different series.  The first question will ask about distribution, and then we'll go into details of which poem(s) you want to fund.

There are two epics left from the mid-month fishbowl featuring Fiorenza the Wisewoman.

"On a Dark Horse"
A direct sequel to the poem "To Its Own End," this explores more of what happened to Orfeo with attention to how Fiorenza and Don Candido deal with the aftermath.  It's kind of creepy, with some odd hopeful notes.
130 lines, Buy It Now = $65

"Chaos Neve"
Fiorenza's father Giordano gets snowed in with a young woman, Desideria, who takes a fancy to him.  It's family dramedy.
134 lines, Buy It Now = $67

Next, there is one open epic, "Often Buried Deep."  It belongs to the series An Army of One and follows Astin's new trade loop.  It contains some social and logistical challenges, but is mostly upbeat. 
This currently needs $95 to be fully funded.

Since the poem "Stretched" has been completed, I'm also offering the opportunity to open "Settled," which is the third of that tightly connected triptych.  It picks up the morning after the SPOON incident, and covers the conversations that Danso has with Hannah and Aidan about new safety parameters.  This one has a little angst carried over, and a lot of fluffy comfort.
320 lines, Buy It Now = $160
