Welcome to the fifth Crowdfunding Creative Jam! This session will run Sunday, March 18-Monday, March 19. The theme is "respect." (Visit the Creative Jam over on LiveJournal.)

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 was thinking about Shroedinger's Heroes (specifically the cat ones) and your prompt and came up with this... It doesn't really have a chorus; I would favor the last stanza for that except I think it works better coming last.

On With Their Work
lyrics by Catherine Faber 2012
tune can be constructed on request.

Cream colored Alex is safe on her perch,
Curled on her desktop, nose-deep in research
When chief of security seal point siamese,
Kay interrupts her, as bold as you please.

Thought I'd drop in just to briefly report
That we might have a case of the quirkier sort
There are mice in the manifold; more than just some,
And I worry what harm they might do or become.

Alex looks up and she widens her eyes
On the back of her spine the white fur starts to rise
The full possibilities haven't been learned,
But I think you are very correctly concerned.

The manifold's key to the tef's many trends
Where reality warps or just mixes and blends
They might grow, become psychic, make wires their chow;
I hardly know which more alarms me just now.

You are the one clearly fitted to lead
I trust you to handle it; take what you need
I won't waste your time with commands or advice.
One thing you know how to do is catch mice.

Thinkers best think and the hunters best catch
The soul to the role is the hardest to match
But once you've assembled a team, do not lurk;
Stand back and let people get on with their work.

:-) I am glad you like it. I enjoyed playing with these characters. I'm not sure I got the ideas about the manifold quite right--in part I was challenging myself to try for quick responses, to see if something fishbowl-like might be possible for me. This meant I didn't check out the background material as thoroughly as I normally would, so it's nice to think I didn't wander too far from the mark.
