Winter Sunlight

It's October!

And a very October day too, cold and rainy, with most of the leaves gone from the trees.

October means:

- Inktober! I'll be posting them at my Instagram (and probably also on Tumblr, but with the instagram you just get the pictures and not the other stuff).

- Whumptober! I'll post the first of those snippets shortly. I've only written a few of them so far and have absolutely no doubt that I WILL fall behind eventually (I'll play catchup in November), but there are still quite a few prompts open and if you'd still like to claim one, you can do so here. (It's also okay to double-claim one - though I'd rather not have more than two claims on any given prompt - and claim a second one if you already did one. I have, by the way, done a bit of shuffling for people who gave me multiple options when the one I said I'd give them turned out to be harder to write than the other one.) I think unclaimed prompts will be either written by me for fun for whatever characters I would most like to write h/c about, or will be used as catchup days to work on the others.

Anyone who would like to join me in doing the prompt-claims thing at your own journal with your fandoms, or just writing snippets for the different prompts (or drawing, whatever your art form is) - PLEASE DO. The more the merrier!

Speaking of hurt/comfort, [personal profile] frith_in_thorns is hosting a delightful discussion about your favorite types of hurt in h/c.

- [personal profile] spook_me! For which I WILL have a fic this year; I actually finished the extremely rough draft of that last night. It's 22K of Ward's undead ghost dad tormenting him. >_> It may quite possibly be one of the most indulgent things I've written for this show, which is really saying something.

- Writing Rainbow: Orange! This is the October manifestation of the color-themed flash exchanges. Signups will open tonight and matching will be based on fandom and maybe on freeform tags (this part is still being decided) and the writing period is over the weekend. Tagset here, ask if questions; I mean, I'm not running it, but I've done several of the flash exchanges so I think I have a pretty good handle on how they work (with the caveat that it does change a little depending on who's running it) and will probably be doing this one, if that's an enticement!

ETA: Oh, and also, [community profile] fandomgiftbox is still filling needy giftboxes; you can see which giftboxes still need gifts here.

Whumptober Day 1: Shaky Hands

Day 1 is "Shaky Hands", for [personal profile] aroberuka, with any Scoops Troops members (Stranger Things). See all prompts and claim one, if you like, here!

"You look terrible," was the first thing Robin said when Steve opened the door.

"Funny, 'cause I feel fantastic," he muttered. Robin rolled her eyes at him. "Yeah, come in, whatever. You know, this isn't even the first concussion I've had."

"Really?" she said, looking curiously around the inside of the house. "How many have you had?"
