Ladiesbingo Card 10-2-15
Here is my card for the [community profile] ladiesbingo fest. This bingo challenge celebrates the various shades of relationships amongst female characters. It's intended to raise the amount of female-centric literature available. All modes are welcome here: het, slash, femslash, poly and gen.  (Borderline fills such as F/F/M or genderswap may be no more than 1 per line or 5 per blackout.)  All media/formats are welcome, including poetry; fanfic and original material are both acceptable. Some of the content may be NSFW. Read the FAQ and rules, scoring, and list of prompts first. The signup post is here. Anyone tired of womenless mainstream entertainment, but not sure what to make? Get a card for inspiration.  (See all my bingo cards for 2014.)

I thought this might be an effective way to attract some new readers. It's also useful for developing some of my series with female leads or other characters as a prevailing feature. Consider The Adventures of Aldornia and Zenobia, Hart's FarmPath of the PaladinsSchrodinger's Heroes, and Walking the Beat. In other series such as An Army of OneFledgling Grace, and Monster House there's at least one F&F or F/F relationship amongst a more widely scattered cast and plot.  Polychrome Heroics is kind of a unique case because 2/6 of Damask (Mira and Maze) are female; and of course it has other kick-ass superheras.  Fortressa's Pit Group is all-female, and within that she has a tighter queerplatonic relationship with Socket developing.

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'll 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.

Unnatural (Events, Weather, Beings)

Brenda deals with this all the time. Next time you write something P.I.E., I'd love it if this got into the mix.

Problem is: unnatural stuff is sorta natural for her. What really constitutes "unnatural" for her?

Re: Unnatural (Events, Weather, Beings)

Hmmm ... something unnatural that she doesn't usually deal with? She likes kayaking, which presupposes water and hills or mountains. Opposite of water is fire or desert, so that's a possibility. They did a rock monster already. Fire season would be more significant threat if she's not familiar with it and especially given her limited mobility.

Might a fire elemental be involved somehow?
