I saw a couple of people doing [profile] tropebingo, and I like tropes & want to write, so I got myself a bingo card. Bingo challenges are very relaxed in that there's not much of a word/content limit and no recipient, so if I get busy again it won't be a problem. Also, I can write ALL the fandoms!

Here's my bingo card:

in vino veritas / drunkfic au: band rivals to lovers au: neighbors mind control
au: other locked in de-aged secret child forced to marry
au: magic slavefic FREE

au: fantasy accidental marriage
handcuffed / bound together secret relationship snowed in wingfic food porn
au: hooker / porn / stripper accidental baby acquisition animal transformation holiday au: apocalypse

I'm not sure that I know all the ways to achieve a bingo... there's blackouts, and lines, and crosses and postage stamps, but I'm not sure how postage stamps and crosses work.

I'm not excited about the way some of these tropes are really similar - AU: Magic and AU: Fantasy, accidentally married and forced to marry, accidental baby acquiring and secret child - and I really don't want AU:Band (I thought we were fans of nerdy shows because we weren't fans of bands, fandom. I thought that was understood.) Otoh, I like magic/fantasy AUs, and AU: neighbours sounds interesting, and I do have ideas for a number of other tropes :)

\o/ this is most exciting, nadja! also, trope_bingo really helped me to write things, so i do recommend it (although i, too, was like - man, these tropes are the same. that's no fun, although i think mine was slightly better than yours).

i also know how the bingo system works:

horizontal, vertical, diagonal lines=bingo. or a full black out. or a cross (but that's just two diagonal lines, really).


you can do a parallel lines bingo, where you write 5 stories that each include two tropes that are parallel to each other (each making one complete line, so not just random tropes that are parallel to each other).

then, once you've done a bingo you are allowed to do extras, such as postage stamps (one fic that uses all four tropes in a square) or a four corner extra. but you're not allowed to do those until you've done a bingo. OR THERE'S DEATH. or something.

Why are the bingo rules so strict? It's not like you actually get a prize or anything.

this is true, and i was pondering this relatively recently when setting up [profile] conventionalcourtship because all challenges HAVE rules and if you're not the one making them they usually seem pretty official. but at the same time, if it's not a gift exchange where you actually get a prize i don't see that i have much in the way to offer people as an incentive. THAT SAID i abided by the rules of trope_bingo most carefully. because it was someone else's challenge and thus official stuff.

do i have your most up-to-date address? i'm not sure, so email it to me and i'll send you glass prison :D
