Signups for this issue were posted at http://bb-shousetsu.livejournal.com/49423.html, and gave the following list of prompts as suggestions, not requirements:25 ROOMS
- The attic of a Victorian house, reachable by skylight.
- A traditional Japanese room enclosed by moving rice-paper screens.
- A hut built on a raised platform.
- An artist's studio-loft.
- The bedroom of a modular housing unit.
- A tree house.
- The soft sleeper railway class.
- A jewel-like library, redolent of old books and dust.
- Another mobile HQ: the sleeping compartment of a long-haul truck.
- An enclosed veranda or peristyle.
- A boarding house that rents by the hour.
- A private jet: curved, creamy surfaces, a leather-enclosed cocoon.
- Subterranean baths, built within caves hollowed out by hot springs that plume beneath the surface of the sea.
- The floor of a tent layered with furs. Smoke escapes overhead to the cold stars.
- A motel room along the interstellar highway.
- A cage.
- A summer sublet in the student ghetto.
- Deep within a palace: dappled shade of fretwork trellises, wide marble steps down to a bubbling fountain inset with gold and lapis lazuli.
- The bedroom is a glass-walled bubble in the center of a rooftop garden.
- The most outrageous honeymoon suite bad taste can buy.
- The servants' quarters.
- The light descends a long shaft; there is a flap in the door.
- A virtual room.
- A modern art installation that deconstructs the idea of the bedroom.
- A room that in memory serves in stead of home.
