Want inspiration for your life or for a creative project?  Need to find a better balance? I can do a reading for you, for a character, as a writing prompt, draw a card to meditate on, etc.

Free one-card readings are still available, as are longer readings.  Tips are always welcome!  So are signal boosts.

I'm doing the readings over here on Dreamwidth.

Welcome to the sixty-fifth Crowdfunding Creative Jam! This session will run Saturday, September 23-Sunday, September 24. The theme is "Black Swans."

Crowdfunding Creative Jam

Everyone is eligible to post prompts, which may be words or phrases, titles, images, etc. Prompters may request a specific creator, but everyone else may still use that prompt if they wish. Prompts may specify a particular character/world/etc. but creators may use the prompt for something else anyway and post the results. Prompters are still encouraged to post mostly prompts that anyone could use anywhere, as this maximizes the chance of having creators make something based on your prompt. Please title your comment "Prompt" or "Prompts" when providing inspiration so these are easy to find.

Prompt responses may also be treated as prompts and used for further inspiration. For example, a prompt may lead to a sketch which leads to a story, and so on. This kind of cascading inspiration is one of the most fun things about a collective jam session.

Everyone is eligible to use prompts, and everyone who wants to use a given prompt may do so, for maximum flexibility of creator choice in inspiration. You do not have to post a "Claim" reply when you decide to use a prompt, but this does help indicate what is going on so that other prompters can spread out their choice of prompts if they wish.

Creators are encouraged, but not required, to post at least one item free. Likewise, sharing a private copy of material with the prompter is encouraged but not required. Creative material resulting from prompts should be indicated in a reply to the prompt, with a link to the full content elsewhere on the creator's site (if desired); a brief excerpt and/or description of the material may be included in the reply (if desired). It helps to title your comment "Prompt Filled" or something like that so these are easy to identify. There is no time limit on responding to prompts. However, creators are encouraged to post replies sooner rather than later, as the attention of prompters will be highest during and shortly after the session.

Some items created from prompts may become available for sponsorship. Some creators may offer perks for donations, linkbacks, or other activity relating to this project. Check creator comments and links for their respective offerings.

Prompters, creators, and bystanders are expected to behave in a responsible and civil manner. If the moderators have to drag someone out of the sandbox for improper behavior, we will not be amused. Please respect other people's territory and intellectual property rights, and only play with someone else's characters/setting/etc. if you have permission. (Fanfic/fanart freebies are okay.) If you want to invite folks to play with something of yours, title the comment something like "Open Playground" so it's easy to spot. This can be a good way to attract new people to a shared world or open-source project, or just have some good non-canon fun.

Boost the signal! The more people who participate, the more fun this will be. Hopefully we'll see activity from a lot of folks who regularly mention their projects in this community, but new people are always welcome. You can link to this session post or to individual items created from prompts, whatever you think is awesome enough to recommend to your friends.

I actually lost the first few minutes of this one, which is kind of annoying. Pickin Colors is great though. 9-8...

hapi⇒ - Undertale - Like The Trombone
prophetik - Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening - Animal Counterpoint
harjawaldar - Heroes of Might and Magic 2 - Un Lamento nella Notte
League of Legends - Worlds Collide (feat. Nicki Taylor)
amane - Yoshi's Story - A glass of port

I actually messed up and mixed up Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Story, oops. Like the Trombone is so goofy, haha.

I really should be posting these more often aaaa. I just keep forgetting or it just falls to the wayside.

It's been hard to find the motivation to work on things, or when I actually DO finish things, it doesn't feel like they actually got done, if that makes sense? There's always this incomplete feeling. But I haven't been getting much sleep lately, which might be part of it.

Lately been thinking about Ghosts again, I can never really predict it. I went and asked on the SSP forums about a word wrap a while ago since I was at my wit's end, and I got a response saying they were actually working on it! Which is the ideal scenario, since Alex told me that it'd be essentially impossible to do client-side, which was discouraging. Supposedly it'll roll out with the next SSP update, whenever that is, but still! It does mean I can set that challenge aside as something I don't really have to wrestle with anymore.

Radic and Farns are still in-progress, I was doing their menus mostly but again it can be so tedious to do. I'm still not sure what to do with Farns's menu! Radic has a fairly extensive menu where he'll talk about his Pokemon or you can ask him questions about himself, but I'm not really sure what to do with Farns's... I was thinking maybe he'd help you with type match-ups or something, but that might be kind of pointless. Dang, I never posted some caps of them, did I? I should do that, haha.

Some new things I'm playing with )

So anyway my mind kept wandering to OTHER Ghosts I could make, like I need more unfinished time-intensive projects no one cares about to get lost in. Mostly I was thinking about a Gaster ghost, and setting up sort of a "trust" system with him, where depending on how you treat him, conversations with him and other things would change. If you kept punching him repeatedly for example, it'd move you into a "cruel" type setting, where menu options would change, he'd stop talking to you, you'd pick him up differently, things like that. Or if you kept petting him or trying to be nice to him, he'd eventually warm up to you and talk more and you'd pick him up more gently. I'd like there to be some way you could call the brothers up as well, though man the work that'd involve, yeesh. It's a lot more fun to speculate about Ghosts than to actually sit down and do the work, though that's really the case with pretty much any creative project, haha.

I should probably post recent Handplates pages but I feel like I'm really going to tl;dr about recent ones and I don't have the energy right now, haha. Maybe later.

Dear writer,

Thank you so much for creating a fanwork for me! I'm sure I will love it anyways, but here are some details about what I like/dislike, in case you like to do your research.

First off, I would rather receive a work that the creator was enthusiastic about than one that fulfilled every detail of my request. These are guidelines meant to help you, not to cage you. I've requested fic because I'm not confident in my ability to provide art prompts, but I love fanart and would be thrilled if my letter inspired any art treats.

For this exchange I have requested Affairs of the Court: Til Death Do Us Part, Star Trek: The Original Series, Cannonfire Concerto, Hark! A Vagrant, The Murderbot Diaries - Martha Wells, The Finite Magician (Music Video)

Details )
