telophase has finished the picture I won from her in the Sweet Charity auction a while back. It is the most gorgeous thing! Check it out here, and also see her notes about how it came about - what I prompted, and what happened after that - because I think it was an interesting process.

And I have won the story that emungere offered on the livelongnmarry auction, which closed in the wee hours of the morning! I need to come up with something really good in the way of an idea ... probably I will do a few ideas, as I did for the picture, and hope that one really hits home.

(A digression - or perhaps not - on the subject of creativity on demand: In my gaming heyday, when I ran tournaments at cons and stuff, someone once asked me what type of roleplaying scenario I liked best as a player myself: Tolkien-ish? Oriental fantasy? SF? Urban noire fantasy? Spy? My answer was: "If the gamesmaster is good, then whatever the gamesmaster enjoys running the most."

I won an auction from the wonderful andmydog. I will probably ask for something very boring 'cause I have ery simple needs. ;)

Heh, if the emungere auction had gone just a few dollars higher, I might have been bidding against you! I was watching several auctions just in case, and that was one of them ... .

And I don't know that andmydog writes simple ... she's had some marvelous twisty stories, on many levels. I bet you'll get something really nifty! (And possibly hilarious.)

I'm probably not going to be as specific as I was with telophase' art prompts, because I want to be at least a little surprised by what I get. Art's different - words can't really describe everything that you can see.

*nods* Yeah, my "prompts" to Louise are going to be pretty darn vague, too. Mostly it's going to be a list of "more please" AU settings, and about the most specific I'll get is that in a couple of those I'll note that I'd be particularly thrilled if some of the UST finally gets resolved somehow. Other than that, mostly I'm just gonna give her a list of fave AUs and a general list of pet kinks and story tropes, and see what that sparks...

I sent off my prompts, but I'm seriously worried that I got too verbose!

'dog is such a marvelous writer, no matter how simple the prompts you give her, I'm sure the story produced will be anything but boring! :)

Oh wow, that picture is absolutely beautiful, very art nouveau-ish (one of my favorite art periods). Congratulations on winning it, and also winning emungere's auction! I am really looking forward to seeing that too! :D

And it's even more special because of working back and forth with her a bit - I couldn't make something like that on my own, but this way I had at least a bit to do with it!

I'm glad you like it so much - sharing makes it that much moreso.

So *that's* what caused that distant squeeing I could hear! XD

Gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. I *heart* Mucha.

Yes! That was me! Watching it come together this week has been such a thrill!
