I have a story percolating right now involving the endless struggle between the Electrical Elemental Faeries and the Data Daemons (those evil creatures that bind power into discrete organized blocks of data). So I'm trying to come up with a whole host of fantastical and alliterative beings. For example:
Here's the words I'm looking at turning into creatures, beasties, or Things:
I'm looking primarily for fey, but other beasties can work as well - after all, the fey need foes to fight. The winning entries for each word will be mentioned in here, and any that actually make it into the story will be credited here and on my web page and any other appropriate place I can fit it in.
You can also suggest other words, that aren't listed above, as long as they are appropriately relevant to electricity. You can also recommend proper names to be used for characters, or titles (i.e something power-related that would replace such outmoded titles as King, Lord, Admiral, etc.).
Please post your entries here, and not on facebook or anywhere else this may be linked, as it's the only way to appropriately timestamp responses. It's okay if you don't have a LiveJournal account - you can post anonymously. Anonymous posts are screened until I unlock them. Just remember sign your name so you can get credit for it. If you don't think I know who you are or how to find you, feel free to email me (contact info on my web page).
Contest ends at 11:23 pm, Mischief Night, 2009, and I'll try to have winners posted on Halloween.
* By submitting an entry, you grant permission for me to post and/or publish your name (or a suitable pseudonym, at your option) as a winner in the event your entry wins.
** Feel free to share this around Teh Intarwebs
*** The book this story is for is vaguely slated for a 2011 release date. So, it'll be a while, but I intend to choose one winner at random from a hat to receive a free copy of the book. Unless things go badly in the interim, leaving me destitute, penniless, and calling out feebly for bread crusts through the bars of my debtor's prison cell. So... no promises there, but that's my intention.
