Well, it's been a while so I'm gonna go ahead and start another round [ hope you don't mind, Exa ]
Everyone will have two weeks to complete their story and submit it as a reply to this thread. You can post it as soon as you finish it or save it so the "competition" doesn't get to see what they're up against.
Entries will be due by midnight on July 28th.
Do not reply to this thread unless it's with a full story. If you have questions or comments use the General Discussion thread, here: [ link ]
Have fun and happy writing!
