We would like to thank everyone who's participated in the previous round - creators, commenters and lurkers alike. You are great, and we appreciate your enthusiasm and dedication! We got to see a lot of beautiful fanworks - for bingo and amnesty alike - and saw many fun discussions as well.
We're not instating too many changes this year: we have updated the prompt list - thank you for your feedback! - and we're starting Motivation Posts soon, as they were a popular feature last year.
Now, onwards! You're welcome to start signing up for the cards. Please read Rules, FAQ and Bingos, Extras and Achievement posts first.
There's no penalty for not posting anything in Round Six. Round Seven is open for everybody.
Leave a comment to this post under the name you wish to post as to get you bingo card and a code to post it to your journal. Due to the possible triggering nature of the prompts themselves, the card code already contains the lj-cut code; you can change the cut text to suit you.
If you want your card with the white background, remove background="LINK"and font color="#ffffff" from your code.
To strike out a square find the square name in the code you've been given and make it look like this: <*a href="LINK TO YOUR STORY"><*s>SQUARE NAME<*/a> (without the asterisks).
To have your card display properly, you need to copy/paste its code directly from the comment itself, and not from your e-mail. Use the html editor when posting.
If you have any problems with your code, please send a message to hc_bingo_mod and we’ll try to help you out.
Important: Some hurt/comfort prompts can be potentially triggering. Please read through the list of prompts before requesting a card. You can veto up to three prompts that would be triggery/uncomfortable for you to write about. Additionally, you can ask for a sex-free card - this will leave off all prompts that deal with questions of consent or sexual contact. If you need more than three prompts veto'd, please contact the mods by PM or e-mail and we will work with you to make sure you have a suitable card.
Remember, you can sign up here or on dreamwidth, but not at the both places at once, since both communities mirror each other.
Here's our official Tumblr announcement; if you'd like to help us spread the world, we'd appreciate a reblog.
For the card backgrounds a pattern by parlouz & a pattern by Kim100 were used.
Once you have completed a bingo you must post it to the community to receive the banner and qualify for achievements. Please do not post links to single fills to the community unless it’s amnesty period or you’re submitting an extra.
You should post to the community you've signed up to, i.e. only to livejournal or dreamwidth, not both at once.
Please tag your post with already created tags (amnesty, amnesty challenge, bingo, extra, fandom, prompt, medium, round) and mods will create other tags as needed. You do not need to ask mods to create tags for you in your post.
deinonychus_1 is kindly helping us to manage tags this round!
Please note: we’ve hit tags limit in the previous round and had to demolish player tags to make some free space. To look up all the posts made to the community by you or some other player, add "?poster=USERNAME" to http://hc_bingo.livejournal.com. For example, to look up all the posts made by hc_bingo_mod, you need to go to the page http://hc_bingo.livejournal.com?pos

Your post should contain links to the individual fills. We do not host any fills on the comm.

After you've made a bingo, you can make a new bingo on your card or request a new card to complete bingo on. You may also do extras using your original card. Extras are worth a unique number of points
( ExtrasCollapse )
These are short answers to questions we frequently get. Please read the Round 7 Rules for more information.
( Common QuestionsCollapse )
I have a question that isn't answered here.
Please be sure to read the Rules and both FAQs, as your question may have been addressed in the comments of the other site: FAQ on Dreamwidth.
If your question still hasn’t been addressed, you can either leave it as a comment to this post with Question in the subject heading or email/pm the hc_bingo_mod (email@example.com).
Please look over this list before signing up. You may veto from one to three prompts that would be triggery/uncomfortable for you to write about. If you need more than three prompts vetoed, please contact the mods by PM or email and we will work with you to make sure you have a suitable card.
( List of hurt/comfort promtpsCollapse )
However, general Amnesty remains open for at least another two weeks. You still have time to get in any fanworks you couldn't finish for any previous deadlines!
At the same time, we'd like to collect your suggestions regarding Round Seven. In this post, please tell us your ideas! Are there any cool new prompts you'd like us to add? Anything from this round that you'd like to remove? How are the Achievements working for you? Any feedback is appreciated!
Anon commenting is on, please be nice to each other.
Fandoms: Vampire High
H/C: Loss of voice, Trust issues, Comfort food or item/feeding someone
Warnings: Blood Drinking
Summary: The realization burned faster and surer and brighter than any fire. Consumed every scrap of affection Marty believed Merrill had thrown purposefully his way. Nothing left.

Hurt/Comfort: Hugs; Captivity; Unwanted Transformation; Dub Con; Healers
Title: You Only Scare the Bad Guys
Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe (Captain America Movies)
The girl nodded solemnly and Bucky took the bear in his hands. It'd looked enormous in her arms, but seemed terribly small with his fingers wrapped around it, like it'd burst if he squeezed too hard. The bear's fur had been worn to felt in places, with uneven stitching where rips had been repaired with more determination than skill. Bucky had to force himself to look back up at the girl's big, adoring eyes. "What's his name?"
"Winter Soldier Bucky Bear," Mabel said, like it was so obvious she couldn't believe he was asking.
Title: 8 Horses; 40 Men
Fandom: Original Work
Cliff wants to ask what the hell's waiting for him at his stop, that the kid's still this fucking scared. You don't ask, though. Not in this car. Maybe the other passengers do, but in this car they know better.
Title: A Good Night to Drown
Fandom: Original Work
Prompt: Unwanted Transformation
"How long?" he asks, just like always. His voice trembles from cold, despite the blanket clutched around him. Water cascades from his hair and skin and clothing, pooling on the wood until it leaks between the slats or runs over the side. She brings the blanket every time, but stopped trying to dry or warm him years ago. He will never be dry or warm.
Title: Your Beautiful Angel Spice Girl
Fandom: Original Work
Margaret favored precision and discretion in all things. This greasy alley offered a perfect example of exactly neither. It grated; shoddy jobs always did.
Title: We Leave our Homes in Flames
Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe (Netflix Daredevil), Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015)
Sergeant Barnes was the only viable Winter Soldier. But he was far from the only person Hydra fucked with.
(Claire's seen a tube like that before. Probably everyone in the entire country has by now. The 'special issue' of Time Magazine that came out in December is still on the table in the break room. Its cover looks like it was painted in the 1940s, and its title is The Crucible of Bucky Barnes.
She didn't read it, but she looked at the pictures. She knows damn well what this green cylinder is for.)
Mods, could you add a 'Healers' tag, please? Thank you!
- feeling: accomplished
H/C: Bodyswap, Medication
[2 Fics]Title: Operation Twin Magic
Relationships: Roman Reigns/Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose/Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins/Dean Ambrose

Title: there's only so many words you can rhyme with heart
Relationships: Seth Rollins/Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns
Warnings: No Warnings Apply
Summary: "How did you not get these out when you were a kid?" Roman asked, taking the keys from Seth's fumbling grip and looking for the key that fit the deadbolt.
"Maybe I wanted to be wise," Seth said, words slurred around the gauze packed into his jaw. He gave a loose, high-pitched giggle and pitched forward to press his face into Roman's back. (Shield-era, kayfabe compliant)
Fandoms: Stand Still Stay Silent
H/C: accept injury to protect someone
Title: Breathe For Me
Warnings: Some slight graphic description of a medical procedure (preparation of a feeding tube.)
Summary: A moment of great self-sacrifice leaves Lalli without his Luonto for perhaps the final time. As months pass without any sign of the Luonto returning, Reynir grows worried.
Mod! Will need a fandom tag for Stand Still Stay Silent. :)
H/C: Trust issues, bodyguards, blackmail
Title: The Always Puzzle of Living

Summary: Leo still loves his siblings but not enough to believe they’d do something about it.
Leo still loves his father but not enough to believe he’ll ever stop.
The Always Puzzle of Living
Fandoms: Second Chance
