Welcome everyone to the Pillowing-Pile Prompt Packs! We are going to be hosting both permanent and monthly rotating prompts here on the pillowing-pile group. This is your opportunity to hoard up those coins for the Pillowing Pile Rewards Shop. Or just have some fun and do some worldbuilding with your Pillowings and Lintlings. Who can resist showing off their cutie?

While these prompts may be primarily focused towards Pillowings, please feel free to get creative and use your Lintling(s)! Lintlings will be getting their own custom Prompt Packs once we get the ARPG running!



Please note: You must choose either Drawing or Writing for a Prompt Pack, doing both for one Pack will not award you extra CC. You can however choose to do one Pack with drawing, and another one with writing! You just cannot combine them for added CC.

Permanent Prompts

(Take as much time as you need! These will never retire.)


:star:Welcome Home:star:

-What is their heart token (optional: and why)? [Background not required]
-Family Portrait. Image depicting your new pillowing and their owner.
-Pillowing and Pillowing accessories. What type of items did you get when you brought your pillowing home? Harnesses and leashes? A pet bed? Squeaky toys? Their own blankie? Whatever accessories you think your pillowing needs!
-Good night! First night with your pillowing.
-Good morning! Your pillowing is letting you know it’s time to get up, what a soft alarm clock.
-Your pillowing’s favorite spot in your home.

Outdoor Adventure 80 by Pillowing-Archive

:star:Outdoor Adventure:star:

-It’s your first time taking your pillowing outside to play in the yard. How do they react?
-Time to finally try on that new leash! How do they look with their new collar/harness and leash? Do they like it?
-First trip outside of the house! Maybe you need to go to the library, grocery store, or just the convenience store? Are they behaving?
-GASP! Your pillowing sees another animal/pillowing while you’re out, how do they react?
-Long ride home. You’re on your way home (walking, biking, blading/boarding, buses, train/subway, flight, etc.), and your pillowing is feeling tuckered out. How are you getting them home?



Rotating Prompt(s)

Runtime: April 1st-April 30th, 11:59pm EST


Homegrown Greenery 80 by Pillowing-Archive
:star:Homegrown Greenery:star:
-It’s a new season! Lets get those tiny seeds into the ground and watered, how is your pillowing helping to accomplish this?
-Gosh, it sure does take awhile for these things to grow, but how are they looking so far? What are you and your pillowing doing while you wait?
-It seems like your gardening adventures have attracted some unintended guests! What are they getting up to in your garden?
-Wow! Look at how beautiful that turned out. Show us the final product of all your hard work and effort!


As always feel free to ask any questions that you may have! :heart:

I just recently got a pillowing (which is still waiting for ownership on masterlist to be changed) and I’d love to do the “Welcome Home” prompt! Can it be written and in my point of view?

As long as it meets the requirements of the written prompts (4+ parts used from the prompt, a minimum of 8,000 words. Characters are focused on, not just passing mentions, etc) then the point of view that it is written from doesn't matter. So feel free to write it from your point of view. The prompts are rather open for interpretation, so as long as the points you use are clearly able to be seen, there will be no issues.

I'm interested in stories. But I do not speak English, can it be written in other languages? I use google translate to translate this. Does it have to be written in DA. or can I upload it to wattpat? If you can not write in other languages Would you accept writings translated by Google translator? It is the only translator who would let me translate up to 5000 words per translation is the most 'effective' for a story of such magnitude thank for your time

Unfortunately it does need to be written in English so that we more easily go through it and make sure it meets the requirements. You are welcome to use Google Translate, as it will allow us to understand most of the story!

It does however need to be uploaded to dA so that we can put it in the gallery of Pillowing-Pile ! You can either upload it into a Literature submission, or a journal, both work for our purposes!

The truth is that I have a pillowing and I wanted to meet friends or ask people if they wanted to be included in the story in a jonural. Can officers be used without prior authorization?

You're welcome to post a journal to the group looking for friends for your pillowing! You can also use the Mascots without any sort of permission from anyone, and give them any sort of personality you want!

It means that the pillowing or lintling that you used, must have a link to their Archive entry in the description! This is to help us make sure only registered pillows/lints are being used c:

So will the sticker only be given to the pillowings that are present in the picture or can you just make a board with all of your pillowings in it

Once you receive a sticker, you can do whatever you choose with it (as long as you don't share/send them to people who haven't earned it)! You can create boards for all of your pillowings or ones for your individual ones. You pick whatever you choose to display them!

For the writing piece, is it so that we write 8,000 words in 1 story and still have 5 other artworks we could do? Im a little bit confused, sorry!

edit: Also for the permanent prompts is it also that we can only do them 6 times?
Reply
:iconcinnristreusel:
CinnriStreusel Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2018  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It would be 1 8,000 word story, and you would still be able to do 6 other artworks! They're two different things!

There is no limit to how many times you may do a particular Prompt Pack! Say you do the Welcome Home pack, you can do it as many times as you like, be it with the same pillowing, or different pillowings, so long as each image that you submit is unique! The only real limitation that we put on it is you may only draw 6 "parts" or bullet points of each pack per-month! I hope this helps, please feel free to ask for further clarification, or if you have any further questions, I am happy to help!

TurtleCupid Featured By Owner Edited Aug 10, 2018  Hobbyist Artist
sorry this will hopefully be the last thing -
"Must use minimum 4 of the available parts of the Prompt Pack" Since for example there is 5 in the garden Party prompt, can we write 1 big story joined together or do we have to do 5 separate ones?

Edit: If dont have a pillowing can we do a gift art thing instead?

Sorry if these are dumb questions, I don't really understand things such as these to well!

Can someone do the Permanent Prompts and the Rotating Prompt at the same time? Like if I wanted to do the Garden Party can I do the coming home prompt as well?

:iconcinnristreusel:
CinnriStreusel Featured By Owner Edited Aug 7, 2018  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yes absolutely! You can mix and match as much as you'd like! Just be aware that there is a max of six "parts" allowed per month. So if you chose three from welcome home, and three from garden party, you would not be able to complete garden party before it rotates out until next year!

Edit: You can complete both of them in the same month however, if you choose to do one of them with writing, and the other with drawing! c:

Is the word minimum for the written works per each part (8,000 words per part) or is it per the whole pack (8,000 per all five parts)? If it's per the whole pack; what if you do an art piece for part of the pack?
Reply
:iconcinnristreusel:
CinnriStreusel Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2018  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
8k for the whole pack! And it must use at least four of the prompt parts/bullet points! 

And mixing both writing and drawing will not net you further CC. So you gotta choose one or the other! If you wanna write some for your drawing submission feel free, or if you feel like drawing something for your writing, go for it! But nothing will be added in terms of CC!

Thank you so much for the help! :D I appreciate the help! I was more worried about actual completion of the packs for stickers.

To be honest, as of right now, I am a bit less interested in the CC and more interested in the stickers. -chuckles-

:iconcinnristreusel:
CinnriStreusel Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2018  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
You can do a mix if you'd like! The only hard limit is 6 parts of any packs per-month!

Like lets say you wanted to do the rotating Prompt Pack for this month? It has 5 parts! Therefore you could do all of those, and choose one part from one of the permanent Prompt Packs to submit as well!

Is there some way for people who don't yet have pillowlings of their own to participate in prompts? If not is there another way other then the spotlight to try and get cc regularly?
