Welcome to the fifty-third Crowdfunding Creative Jam! This session will run Saturday, July 16-Sunday, June 17. The theme is "Good and Evil." 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.

Your title prompt "All That Is Necessary for Evil", with additional inspiration from your prompts "Good people cleaning up the mess after evil people" and "Neutrality can do a lot more damage than evil", spawned a poem of that title, sponsored by my Patreon patrons.

Trope Prompts
{1} Good Is Not Nice.
{2} Even Evil Has Standards.

{1} Evil is what you do, not who or what you are.

{2} "This is for your own good." And how very seldom is that actually true.

{3} "All that glitters is not gold." Sometimes what looks to be good and beautiful is actually evil and ugly under it's pretty mask.

If somebody is in a really weird mood, Learn You a Haskell for Great Good! was the first thing that popped into my mind when I read the topic. Your mileage may vary.

Song prompt: "Wings", by Cat Faber, performed by Echo's Children".

A few prompts:

Bright white light as a symbol of evil, or at least problems.

Finding one's way out of the fuzzy in-between areas on a spectrum from good to evil, into a more lively and nuanced mode.

Evil music, not the same as music ABOUT evil things.

*Sometimes, there really are no shades of grey. Sometimes, evil is obvious.

All I've got for the moment.
