Hurt Comfort Bingo Card 6-16-17

Below is my card for the Round 8, 2017 [community profile] hc_bingo fest. This fest encourages the creation of boundary-pushing material that explores what happens when things go horribly wrong and people actually care about each other. Remember, things always go wrong; what matters is how you deal with that. Some of the content may be NSFW. Read the FAQ and rules first. The signup post is here. (See all my 2017 bingo cards.)

I thought this might be an effective way to attract some new readers. It's also useful for developing some of my more danger-prone series.

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 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.

Warning: One of my readers noted that many of these prompts are "extra dark." I didn't notice it so much because I tend to gauge based on the tone of a given piece. If you're sensitive to just the prompts, you may wish to exercise caution.

Underlined prompts have been filled.

unrequited pining bodyguards mercy killing captivity loss of job / income
hunger / starvation taking care of somebody tentacles strapped to a moving vehicle experiments by evil scientists
secret allies deals with demons WILD CARD falling therapy
insomnia learning to be loved homesickness trapped together forced to hurt somebody
forced body modification accidents loss of home / shelter skeletons in the closet nervous breakdown
