This might seem like an exercise in futile insanity (I'd say 'whimsical insanity' but I don't do whimsy), but it's not, I swear! I have a plan.
The first part of the plan is to take merciless advantage of the fact that you don't have to fill in the entire card to succeed at this thing and that you can also take an entire year to do it. The second part of the plan is to use the prompts as inspiration for original fic*, because one can never have too much inspiration and if I do this right I might just end up with a collection of stories I can either try to get into professional anthologies or self-publish on Amazon.com.
I'm stoked about this, I have to say. Pretty much everything I write turns into H/C eventually, and I'm already having a great time thinking of how I can use some of these prompts to help expand vignettes I've written into full novellas or novels. Heck, nearly the whole card seems tailor-made for the Pape and Danforth thing I've been poking at. Well, maybe not the "Archaic Medicine"... (ETA: Naturally the first one I filled was "Archaic Medicine".)
Anyway, here's my card under the cut. Pretty cool, huh? Except the "Poltergeist" prompt, because ghosts kind of freak me out.
|Cages||Ostracized from Society||Forced to Participate in Illegal/Hurtful Activity||Poltergeist||Hospital Stay|
|sensory deprivation||panic attacks||phobias||counseling||job-related trauma|
|parting ways||group support||WILD CARD||minor illness||secret identity discovered|
|Archaic Medicine||Coma||Exhaustion||Stranded/Survival Scenario||Bruises|
|hypothermia||loss of limb / limb function||mindswap||poisoning||broken bones|
*Except for the SGA fanfic I'm going to write for raphe1 because of her winning and extremely awesome bid at help_japan.
