There's a wealth of inspiration there, and you've got 50 minutes to do something with it.

Rating: PG-13 for implied violence
Prompt: There are so many ways to begin
Notes: This is from the Metalocalypse verse, but I doubt you would need to see the show (or even know what it is) to read it.

We are damned, yes.Collapse )

As promised, a Wednesday Challenge.

There are so many ways to begin.

You can change the tense, but, apart from that, that should be the first line of your story. Also, I'd like the story to contain an instance of indirect speech - dialogue reported, but not actually heard in the text. No " ".

No time limit on this one. Give me war, give me life, give me joy, give me memoir, give me ends and starts.

Whatever you like.

That Which Water Hates [12 May 2008|09:41pm]

[ mood | blank ]

Title: That Which Water Hates
Author: gnomeofsol
Rating: PG-13 for mostly implied violence
Prompt: Unreliable witnesses | 50 mins
Notes: Taealwhyn admits the details of the night her mother was murdered to Sdholhen, who may or may not be her father. I haven't posted anything from this 'verse here, but other excerpts from it can be found here under Aelphlond. For lanyon, who does her best to keep me honest.

The thing about curses is that they can have unintended side effects.Collapse )

summary: a snapshot on byron matthews, photographer and flake. also featuring two of applegnat's characters, xavier fernandez-hayden and devin james.
disclaimer: our characters from the epic, expanded whisperback 'verse.
dedication: for my ludicrously talented co-author and for gnome. :x

his careful cursive, in inky fountain-pen blue, is not always derived from reality but the flourishes on his fs and ts make his hand-written fantasies as endearing as his wide brown eyes and guileless smiles | 479 wordsCollapse )

Man, Wednesday's come around so quickly around here, huh? This week's challenge is

Unreliable Witnesses.

Give me children, give me liars, give me history, give me art. Give me whatever you like, but give it me with at least three characters involved, however tangentially, and give it me in 50 minutes.

much have been lost&found [25 Apr 2008|08:03pm]
Title: Threads
Author: citydancer
Prompt: Lost, found, magnificent things. One hour. (Used about fifty minutes. Managed to churn out a lot, though.)
Rating: R, sexy situations, some mention of lesbianism
Fandom: My own. It's a long, complicated one. Basically, it revolves around Ida, who can manipulate time. The poor people who orbit her gets dragged into her time-messes.
Notes: This first part is when Ida leaves Stockholm; her younger brother, Edmund, insults Miriam. The second part is Ida at the end. The third part is Embla, the mother of Ida and Edmund, remembering Andrew.

Some things will always happen . . . Some things were always meant to be.Collapse )

Prompt: Lost, found, magnificent things... [25 Apr 2008|08:26am]

[ mood | cynical ]

Title: The Cave of Wonder
Author: redleathercouch
Rating: PG
Prompt: Lost, Found, Magnificent Things in under an hour.
Fandom: again, my own 'verse as in previous cues challenges
Notes: how to describe without describing... that's what I'm trying to learn here, a way of curbing my verbosity and turning it to something useful... I'd be interested in people's feedback on this, considering what's going on here is quite obscure. :)

The Cave of Wonder | 622 words | 60 minutesCollapse )

Thanks to a blatant misuse of telecommunications lanyon, I've been reminded that it is, in fact, Wednesday, which is, in fact, challenge day.

Here it is:

Lost, found, magnificent things.

Give me myths, buried treasure, rediscovered relationships. Give me whatever you like, and give it me in under an hour.

[ mood | amused ]

If this is too off-topic, let me know and I'll delete.

A friend of mine shared my bit for this challenge with a couple professors on our campus, a married couple--she's a Classics professor, and he, I think, has an English focus. He emailed me this in response, and I think he quite puts me to shame:

Only Laurence Pittenger would make this epic.Collapse )

All around me is a wasteland.Collapse )
