Like madame_ugly before me, I'm going to open the floor to some requests here.

What you do:

Give me a request for a drabble. This can be as vague as you want or as specific as you want. Leave the characters open or hand select the ones you'd like me to use. Prompts can be a single word or a phrase. I like the idea of suggesting a phrase or a request for some specific opinion or thoughts from a character, so feel free to do that. I'll even attempt something as tangential as "Frances Worthington's thoughts on Stella Terrano" or "PT No. 9 goes shopping with the coupons he's clipped that week", though I may have to politely decline if you completely stump me or it's way out of character (I'll try to make it work, though).

I will have to decline anything that would give away a detail of the plot that I'm obviously hiding, but I'm sure you understand which things are off limits. An obvious example would be something like: "What is Circe really up to?" I'm not going to answer that one just yet. If you make a really specific request, please try to stick to things that have already happened or are happening right now in the story. Okay, enough with the "rules"...

What I do:

Create, at the very least, a 100 word text-only drabble. I reserve the right to explode a prompt into something a little larger, like a ficlet, and to include images. I like including images, so I probably will include at least one, even for the drabbles.  

I'll do these here and there, so there will likely be some waiting involved, but I'll honour all requests eventually.

So, bring it on, oh gentle readers.

This is cool! I don't really know what to say about it though.. uh...

I know! How about "Guilt" with Frances' mother? She *must* feel guilty for what she's done for her kids, I'd love to see what you can do. (Since I love her, and it must really affect her to have to keep going to rehab.. I wonder how she feels about what her kids feel... Does that make sense?)

This is a really great idea. :)

Ooh, that's a good one. I really haven't down much thinking about her point of view yet. I'll give it some thought.

I would love to see something with Pascal and Nervous with the keyword of "Victim". I dig those two and I'd love to see their relationship a bit more indepth.

Sounds good. I can definitely do that. (I'll be doing a chapter that deal with them after the current one is finished, so this could be used towards that.)

Ooh, I think I love this... Can we leave a quote for you to draw inspiration from?

Tempt not a desperate man.

Yeah, a quote works too. So that one is open to any character at all?

Buck/colors
Hal/freedom (I really don't know who he is yet!)
Kristen/memories
Jaxy/threesomes (We never did get a follow-up on that, did we? Could also pertain to her thoughts on the trio.)

Oooh, I'm getting ideas already.

(And you're right. There was no direct follow-up to the Stella thing, so maybe I can give you the closure you need.)

Here's some vague stuff for you. I'd love anything from a character we've not really met yet (like Mr. Doe or your Chester). In fact, as many of those as you want to do, that's cool.

I'd also like some stuff from the children of Strangetown. Jolene and Jordan Smith's take on their parents (what with them being so old and all).
Anything from Mint's POV (she's deliciously bratty).
Vid's kids (sorry, names ellude me right now). Especially Vid's kids take (if any) on his being away from them due to his Circe humping (I realize they might be toddlers, so it might not be from their POV exactly).

Silly wise, I'd LOVE some Bigfoot appreciation. I realize that's kind of out there but, hey, can't hurt to ask.

(yes, I'm deliberately avoiding the more main characters since I figure a lot of people will be interested in them)

I knew I could count on you to reach in for the obscure candy at the very bottom of the jar.

There are some great ideas here that I haven't got around to thinking about much, like the younger kids, so that could be interesting. Mr. Doe is "due" *groan* to get some more air time soon anyway, as is Chester (but just a little).

You even thought of Bigfoot. *snicker* (I see him walking around town all the time and it cracks me up.)

Sexy, with anyone. Whichever charater you pick, I want to see that character's view of sexy.

Oooh ooh! I gots one.
How about something like why Frances doesn't like Pirates, Ninjas, and Vampires? I just loved that little detail that was mentioned in the last chapter, and I think it would be fun to elaborate on it.

I'm just going to pop out of my hiding spot here where I lurk, and just do something I thought would be pretty neat.

"Loki's Final Thoughts"

I've always liked Loki, even if he's evil in every story plot I've read (Or listened to. My Friends play around with Strange Town a lot.)

I hadn't considered the Tricou family much at all until you mentioned this, but now I'm going to give it some thought.

How about...one of the Nervous clones any of them (or all) with a key word being "discover" or "discovery".

You'll notice I used only the word, and very little of the concept. *snicker*
