Some more for your muse's pleasure. And mine, of course, but please feel free to jump in and participate, too.

If one of these inspires you, comment and I'll put your name beside it -- not so we can name and shame, but to help motivate you to get it done. When you've written your piece, post or link it back into the community so we can help you celebrate! If you want to put the traditional formatting block at the top of your storypost, just cutpaste out the stuff to the right of the picture you want to use, and change the generic 'Title' and so on to match your story.

Story Type: Original.
Content Cautions: None.
Critique: Constructive Criticism welcome.
Summary: Meow! :)
Miscellaneous :I'm not sure if this is against the rules, but I was inspired by two pictures, so I decided to include them both. Oh...and you might be able to tell from my last post that I am being most decidedly evil this week. Special thanks go to my childhood cat, Mittens, who loved me...and put up with me.

Prompt posted Oct 9 2006
Story Type: Combination of Original Story and Fanfiction of sorts.
Content Cautions: None
Critique: Constructive criticism welcome. Yeah...I know...I'm probably breaking some copyright laws here, but what the hey. I'm not planning on publishing this.
Summary: A message that a starship's captain delivers to new passengers via intercom.
Acknowledgements:
Thanks to drl909, vince74, and Robin for helping me come up with this idea at the party last weekend. Also, thanks to the members of anime_night on general principles. Anime characters that are mentioned in this story comes from Neon Genesis Evangelion, Elfen Leid, Sailor Moon, and Last Exile. A special thanks to the troll, hobgob, who was plaguing my journal with nonsensical rants a few weeks ago and who single-handedly earned the distinction of being the first person banned from my journal. Without you, none of this would have ever happened...

Inspired by:

taken by i is Ashby
Story Type: Original
Content Cautions: None.
Critique: Very, very welcome.
Summary: Leigh has moved from Earth to a station orbiting Mars, and found a lovely native man to fall in love with ... but is the gulf between dirtsider and vacuumborn too wide to breach? Those of you worried about how this comes out can be reassured by the fact that this chapter takes place the better part of a year before the first chapter I posted ... and immediately following 'Breaking Bread and Giving Thanks'.

Chapter 8: An Academic Interlude

Story Type: Original
Content Cautions: None.
Critique: Very, very welcome.
Summary: Leigh has moved from Earth to a station orbiting Mars. But because I haven't managed to finish a whole chapter of her actually talking to anyone in a while, I'm going to give you a chapter of fictional history instead. I don't have a photo for this chapter, either. Ahhh, the power and glory of authorship ... In the 'as-published' version of this work, should there ever be such a thing, the information exposited below will probably be put into the actual mouths of actual characters. So consider this an Easter Egg, only available to people getting to read it in serialized-first-draft format. :->
Past Chapters:
  1. The Grand Tour
  2. Futures and Pasts
  3. Great Expectations

Prompt posted Oct 10 2006
Story Type: Original. The setting is the Louvre.
Content Cautions: None
Critique: Constructive criticism welcome.
Summary:A security guard patrols a wing in the Louvre at night.
Acknowledgements: This painting appears in the story, and it's part of the reason I changed my setting from a random art museum in Mexico City to the Louvre. I visited the Louvre in July of 2005, and because I thought this painting was interesting, I decided to take photograph it. Also, many thanks to the people over at linguaphiles, especially ernie_lundie, for a translation.
