Welcome to the forty-ninth Crowdfunding Creative Jam! This session will run Saturday, March 19-Sunday, March 20. The theme is "Highly Distinctive People." 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 first text prompt inspired Fists and Faces, an Ursulan Cycle story about the first female knights in Uthyr's court.

Oh, thanks! Hmm, I have a bunch of other pieces posted that I haven't linked either here or on the landing page... perhaps I should add a comment at the landing page.

I am not like you; stop acting like that's a bad thing

'you're one in a million' means there are about [7400 or one-one-millionth of the population of the setting, supposing the setting population to exceed two million] people like you. that's a lie. there is exactly one person like you and that's you.

[as seen on Facebook meme, image of a vending machine with a sign taped to it, text of sign as follows:] the light inside me is broken but I still work [caption below, I forget precisely the wording, but the gist was "it me"; I would like this to be a hopeful story]

[insert "Reflection" from Disney's Mulan here]

genderqueer polyamorous demisexual disabled bisexual person of color whose life doesn't suck accordingly [I mean, yes deal with however many of the various -isms against them, but... *handflappy* I know what I meant and I hope you can figure it out because I can't seem to words it. like, they've got supportive community and partners and a life goal that they're successfully working toward attaining. am I making any sense here?]

From They Might be Giants -- excerpts from "Omnicorn"

omnicorn. even rarer than a unicorn
it’s got every single kind of horn
omnicorn’s the one
the one

omnicorn. leaping over someone’s mobius strip
left behind from a vacationing trip
that’s something to talk about.

Capes and Masks is set on an alternate Earth where super powers exist. Some people use said powers to create crime, fight crime, or do something else entirely. Some people with no powers at all also do those things.

There isn't much to these universe yet but everyone's welcome. Just remember to let the heroes be heroes and that even villains have standards.

"Marching To Your Own Beat"

{A} A Rudolph who decides since they won't let him join in any reindeer games, that he'll just have to make up his own.

{B} "I live in my own little world. But it's okay. They knew me there."

{C} Screw this must remain a princess because queens are always evil nonsense.

{D} Subverting the fairy tale: The prince in the tower, the lady knight rescues the gentlemen-in-distress, the person enchanted to be animal or something would thank you kindly not to break the spell - they like being x, its the scary-looking monster who is the good one and the handsome knight on the white horse who is evil, the princess rescues herself, etc.

Prompt the first, and with this one I nod toward [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith and Terramagne: Neurovariant soups and supernaries. Mega bonus points if said people are accepted and respected in their chosen fields, by their families, etc.

Prompt the second, in a sideways nod to this week's news: An openly agender, proudly black person is confirmed and takes their seat on the Supreme Court in the States.

Prompt the third: Professor Nikola Tesla is not even close to forgotten by some.
