writinggame: Square boardgame (version 2.5)
[personal profile] writinggame posting in [community profile] writing_game
Board and prompts by [personal profile] lilian_cho. Picture square prompts are from The O.C.

This board is also posted on Livejournal. You may play on either site.

The goal of Writing Game is not to make multiple rounds around the board, but to accumulate as many points as possible.

You may switch fandoms/worlds whenever you first pass 20 points, 40, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 105, 110, 115, 120, then free for all.

e.g. Total points: 19. Complete a +3 prompt.

This brings you to 22 points. At this point you may switch fandoms/worlds.

Always go clockwise unless you are going backwards because you skip a prompt.

You can Teleport to a Player's choice square. Tele Point only double the scores (and not the number of squares) of your next three drabbles.

All the general rules can be found in the user profile. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

lilian_cho: Merlin in X-Men gear (Telepath!Merlin)
From: [personal profile] lilian_cho
Real annual summer visit: Canada.

I was trying to write Steve/Tony but ended up writing bb!Tony and Uncle Charles instead. *shrugs*

Prompt: Cushy +2, 150 words

"Isn't he heavy, Charles?"

Tony looked up from his position in Uncle Charles' lap. He was five and five-sixths, but he was small for his age and could comfortably curl up there.

You're fine, dear.

"He's hardly heavier than Raven's monster cat," Charles said. "And I hardly have any feeling in my legs."

Mr. Lensherr's lips thinned. Half a year ago, such a comment would have resulted in a full-body flinch. Progress, Charles’ mind-voice said.

Tony nodded his agreement.

He liked Uncle Charles, almost as much as Jarvis. Thank you, dear. Uncle Charles let him ride in his lap while they zoomed down the mansion hallways. When he grew up a bit, Uncle Charles promised he could add jet propulsion to his wheelchair.

Let’s start with the spare wheelchair, shall we? Erik won’t be happy if you accidentally break this one.

Tony pouted, but he supposed even genius needs practice.
