Another bingo to add to my collection of binghi! From the good folks at genprompt_bingo.

And this one is delightful. (Check out that first square.) Now I'm trying to think how they might be applied to my latest fandom loves: The Magicians and The Expanse.

So you have to be attractive to be groped uninvited by Trump. Finally! A reason to want to be ugly! Adrenaline Junkie Shoes Co-workers Dreams and Nightmares
Reincarnation Afternoon Missed Opportunities / Words Unsaid Sleepovers and Pyjama Parties Tragedy
Corpses / Skeletons / Remains Glorious Wild Card Dread Mary Sue / Gary Stu / Authorial Confusions and Other Signifiers of badfic
The Eyes are the Window of the Soul Butcher / Baker / Candlestickmaker: Tradesman Canon Themes Five Things Science and Magic
Silence Androids and robots Holiday Cottages Black and White Infiltration

*blushes* I have a terrible habit of signing up for binghi and not doing them.

BUT THIS YEAR WILL BE DIFFERENT. maybe

Anyway, here's what I got from trope_bingo this time. Why didn't I opt out of AU: ROYALTY/ARISTOCRACY/FEUDAL, you may ask? Because I thought it might be fun to write a spot of yeomen slash. Peasant porn! Let's see if that bunny survives infancy ;-)

Actually, the nicest thing about trope_bingo is you're allowed to mess with the tropes any way you like. Some of these would be quite a lot of fun to mess with. *plots*

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] rhuia, I spent a lot of time this evening thinking about the much-missed mundane_bingo comm over on DreamWidth.

Now there's a bingo after my own heart, although like so many other fabulous comms (yes, I'm looking at you, [livejournal.com profile] metafandom) it became moribund long before I learnt of its existence.

Anyway, mundane_bingo was special because it offered prompts like these:

• trying to decide where to eat dinner with a group
• birds poop on clean drying laundry
• using a lint roller to get pet fur off your clothes
• foot falling asleep


...and then people actually wrote fics for them <333

As I was mooning over the final mundane_bingo post, I noticed for the first time that the creators actually offered some interesting permutations. You could request an American-oriented card, a European-oriented card, or (special third option!) "a card that does not skew towards an American or European perspective of mundane".

So naturally* I thought, "What would a Canadian mundane card look like?" And set out to design one.

And here's the result! Feel free to use any of these if you're stumped by your [livejournal.com profile] picfor1000 prompt; I'll make it totally kosher by including this year's prompt in the wildcard square. Go ahead, I'll wait.


Someone at work brings in a box of Timbits
Voting in local by-election
Too much/too little salt on roads in winter
Forgot to put store receipt in paper recycling bin
Reads latest Michael Ondaatje because one feels one should
Not enough maple syrup for waffles
Finds Don Cherry annoying
Flummoxed about how to pronounce flocons de maïs
Brief fretting over whether to take elevator vs. stairs
Knows someone whose brother owns a snowmobile
Embarrassed over having studied French for 10 years in school yet still cannot hold simple conversation or follow news on Radio-Canada
Using chopsticks
FREE SPACE! or, Group 11

ESPACE LIBRE! ou, Groupe Onze
Does not know cost of a first-class postage stamp
Flosses with exaggerated diligence just before visit to dentist
Knows and can sing the chorus of "I'se The B'y" (but none of the verses)
Landlord will not allow pets
Still not used to metric OR is very comfortable with metric
Coin laundry does not accept new loonies
Overly talkative taxi driver
Filing income tax on time
Is roundly scolded by stranger for failing to pick up dog poop
Queuing obediently for a bus
Likes earflaps on hat even though they look silly
Has never eaten poutine
 

*In fact, gratuitiously imposing a 'Canadian' framework on any passing trifle is not only the sheer definition of true Canuckitude, it should probably be included ON THE CARD ITSELF.
