I never can resist [community profile] hc_bingo. I mean, between free interpretation, metaphor, choosing hurt-only, hurt/comfort, comfort-only, the multitudinous means of getting a bingo and the fact there are no penalties even if you don't even post one fill in amnesty, and a year-long period of writing altogether, what's to be afraid of?

Well, save the card itself. (I look at everyone else's cards and so many of the prompts and go YES YES YES and then get mine and go: 0_o for a few hours until ideas start arriving. This one is particularly scary, I feel, but has possibilities. And, you know, it's pretty, and it's not as if h/c and apocalypses aren't likely to overlap here and there...)

accidental mating for life orphans hunger / starvation loss of powers rape / non-con
exhaustion falling alien abduction torture loss of home / shelter
accept injury to protect someone sensory deprivation WILD CARD experiments by evil scientists job-related trauma
healers atonement serial killers disappearing bruises
dungeons asking for help grief theft substance addiction

Ideas welcome! Also I am ridiculously tempted by writing the 12,500 word 25-in-one special achievement, except I cannot imagine how that would go or how I would pull it off and survive/keep a straight face.

That is an interesting, but mildly terrifying card.

I look at everyone else's cards and so many of the prompts and go YES YES YES and then get mine and go: 0_o for a few hours until ideas start arriving.

Ditto, except for "hours" read "weeks." If I'm lucky. :)

But these bingo things are oddly addictive, aren't they?

Good luck with the card! My HC card defeated me.

There's plenty of world destroying crossover potential:)

It's lucky for us there are so many bingos for us to choose from and conquer!

Ooh, see this is something I could get behind...(as I'm sure is readily apparent from nearly all of my RaTs pieces...)

How do I get in on this?

OH NO, HC_BINGO IS OPEN AGAIN. You're so right, it's completely irresistible, never mind that I haven't actually finished my last...three cards or so...

But I wrote stories I might not otherwise have written! Which is something, right?

I have no particular ideas to offer about your Dungeons square, but dungeons seem v. promising as a general thing in stories.

Perhaps the best dungeon guide book is... uh... some kind of weird coping mechanism! For the trauma of being locked up all the time! And eventually someone needs to comfort the Doctor for all his dungeon suffering. *nodnod*

OOh, you know, what always gets me on these cards is how combining touching prompts always gets me thinking. Not that THINKING has resulted in me beginning my GenPromptBingo...

On your card, I'm thinking 'a healer in a dungeon' ooh, interesting. And 'atonement for serial killers'...mmm, yes. 'Orphans goes with Hunger/Starvation' really well... Maybe the 25 in one would be tough, but not impossible!

Wow, that's a cheerful bunch of prompts! "Accidental mating for life" is... different.

Have fun, and I'm sure you'll do brilliantly.

Well, thinking about it a little more, it nearly happened to the First Doctor and Cameca in "The Aztecs", so I suppose it is do-able.

With enough chocolate, anything is possible. ;)

it's a pity you don't seem to be a fan of Stargate Atlantis, there are any number of episodes where these prompts would be canon.

You could try taking Dungeon to mean D&D and do a set of characters playing the game, either as a LRP or the classic gathered round a table.

Accidental mating for life sounds fun.

It is utterly irresistible every time! I wish you best of luck with your card, and with attempting a 25 in 1. I think I've tried that every year without success... yours has some great leads for one though, especially if you're doing something Who related. (Accidental Mating for Life can always be a hot chocolate related gaffe, right?)

I've just got my card and it seems there is going to be a lot of hot chocolate going around this round. :)

Uhh, good luck.

I see a few lines that could all be rolled into one story (row 2, or column 4), but 25-in-1 would be pretty epic. Would a S&S fic where someone gets hooked on causing time distortions in order to interact with the elementals count as "substance addiction", ;)

Yours has more of a theme that the one I got. a 25-in-1 on mine would be utterly insane. Not only does it have the crackfic of de-aged, wings, and branding, it's got that mixed with the utterly non-scifi elements of eating disorders, group support, and therapy.
