Welcome to the fifty-sixth Crowdfunding Creative Jam! This session will run Saturday, October 15-Sunday, October 16. The theme is "Games." 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.
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.
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.

Prompt the first: Ah man, who knocked all the chess pieces all over the floor?!

Prompt the second: Getting utterly skunked at cards, card game of your choice.

Prompt the third, not necessarily related to the second: Egyptian Ratscrew! ... At least I *think* that's how it's spelled, I've only ever heard it spoken. Basically, it's a card game in which everybody cheats, spectacularly and deliberately, as part of the rules, such as they are.

Prompt:

See the little sandy kid
Sitting by the shore
Crying, crying
Till their eyes are sore
Stand up, sandy kid,
Wipe your tears away
Find a friend who likes to dance
And ask them out to play.

Tra la la la la
Tra la la la la.

(These are lyrics to a children’s circle song-game. It begins with one person in the center and everyone else in a ring clapping and signing; moves through a dance with one or more additional kids spinning in a circle in the middle; ends the round with everyone sitting down. The first “sandy kid” may be left or replaced with “sandy boy / sandy girl” as appropriate/preferred; the second is generally replaced with the name of the child in the middle. Kindergartners who play regularly enjoy explaining why they are crying at the seashore (a wave hit their sandcastle; their older brother threw them in the water; a shark took their sandwich). Adults may use this game as an opportunity to encourage children to try playing with someone new and point out that they have ‘made a friend’. One should be conscious of and subtly prevent consistent favoritism by finding everyone turns regularly, if not in every game; making sure that many people volunteer to dance with each child; and explaining why snubs aren’t appropriate. Consistently modeling considerate behavior goes a long way towards making it clear that it is expected from children.)

What’s your story? Who do you ask to 'dance' when you try to set aside your sorrows?
