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
  1. The attic of a Victorian house, reachable by skylight.
  2. A traditional Japanese room enclosed by moving rice-paper screens.
  3. A hut built on a raised platform.
  4. An artist's studio-loft.
  5. The bedroom of a modular housing unit.
  6. A tree house.
  7. The soft sleeper railway class.
  8. A jewel-like library, redolent of old books and dust.
  9. Another mobile HQ: the sleeping compartment of a long-haul truck.
  10. An enclosed veranda or peristyle.
  11. A boarding house that rents by the hour.
  12. A private jet: curved, creamy surfaces, a leather-enclosed cocoon.
  13. Subterranean baths, built within caves hollowed out by hot springs that plume beneath the surface of the sea.
  14. The floor of a tent layered with furs. Smoke escapes overhead to the cold stars.
  15. A motel room along the interstellar highway.
  16. A cage.
  17. A summer sublet in the student ghetto.
  18. Deep within a palace: dappled shade of fretwork trellises, wide marble steps down to a bubbling fountain inset with gold and lapis lazuli.
  19. The bedroom is a glass-walled bubble in the center of a rooftop garden.
  20. The most outrageous honeymoon suite bad taste can buy.
  21. The servants' quarters.
  22. The light descends a long shaft; there is a flap in the door.
  23. A virtual room.
  24. A modern art installation that deconstructs the idea of the bedroom.
  25. A room that in memory serves in stead of home.
