Maybe it's because those who are creating it are creating what they want to create, or what they think you want to have created.

Don't despair! There is another way. [livejournal.com profile] ysabetwordsmith is hosting a Poetry Fishbowl today, in their space opera storyline, "An Army of One". You don't have to be a passive consumer -- become a spectator, or even a participant, as a diverse community asks for, and gets, interesting speculative fiction that <i>they</i> ask for.

Satisfied repeat customer here. Come on over, and give it a try!

Continuing the previous demifiction with the second part, set at another memorial site.

Warning: This piece is intense and contains some things that might be upsetting to some. The setting was a site of combat in a recent war, and suffered mass casualties (mostly non-combatants) and extensive damage and destruction over a wide area from an event described in preceding demifiction. This event is referred to, although not graphically, and most of the story takes place at sites dedicated in memory of the event. Please consider your reaction to events and locations of these natures before reading.
"On Matters of Life and Death" continues )

[livejournal.com profile] ysabetwordsmith is a very productive writer who puts out lots of neat stuff. (For an example, see a recently posted sample, "Dangerous Refuges".) What's even more fun, they are inclined to allow posts using their settings by people who show interest and appreciation.

I've gotten involved with a variant space-opera setting, "An Army of One", and have previously posted some demifiction, "News Bulletin: The Massacre of Cascabel" and "The Conscience of the War", about an event described in one of its threads. Recent developments in the series inspired me to write another piece that follows those two, describing the changes that took place in the area around the event during the first couple of years thereafter.

The second part of the piece is here.

On Matters of Life and Death )

Another piece of demifiction inspired by ysabetwordsmith's Poetry Fishbowl poem, "Too Much Energy". This is an editorial piece that was distributed on Carina InfoGrid about four weeks after the event described in the preceding "News Bulletin".

Warning: This piece is intense and contains some things that might not be to everyone's taste. These include graphic descriptions of war, battle, an event described in "Too Much Energy" (spoiler warning for the event -- highlight to read: the mass casualty event), and its aftermath. Also indoctrination, propaganda, and insincere political posturing. Consider your preferences before reading onward.

Read "The Conscience of the War"... )

A prompt I sent [livejournal.com profile] ysabetwordsmith for their latest Poetry Fishbowl helped inspire their poem, "Too Much Energy". This inspired me to write a couple of pieces of demifiction describing reactions to one of the events mentioned in the poem.This piece is followed by an editorial, "The Conscience of the War", written in reaction to a poem written by a survivor of the event.

Warning: This piece is intense and contains some things that might not be to everyone's taste. These include graphic descriptions of war, battle, an event described in "Too Much Energy" (spoiler warning for the event -- highlight to read: the mass casualty event), and its aftermath. Also unreliable narrators and witnesses, indoctrination, propaganda, and insincere political posturing. Consider your preferences before reading onward.
