Honorable Mentions

David A Ludwig | @DavidALudwig
Janie says: What a great concept about an uncontrollable shadow getting into all sorts of mischief. I hope this is being turned into a full-on story, because I want to read it!

Janie says: Seriously, what’s not to love about a creature spouting a twisted version of a child’s nursery rhyme while slaughtering humans? Dark. Love it.

Stacy Bennett-Hoyt | @Rowanwolf66
Janie says: HOT! Ménage-a-Thursday! Who came up with the stupid rule about having to stop at 250 words? It was just starting to get really good!! :)

Week Ten Winner

Janie says: You fooled me! Set me up with all the “grease stains” and “slaughtering” talk. Expecting another tale of violence and was pleasantly surprised to find a game of Horse between sisters.  Delightful dialogue!

“How about we talk first, shoot later?” Carrie asked.

"The time for talking is long gone," Margot said. "They won't even be able to clean the grease stains off the floor when I'm finished with you."

"I really don't understand why you find it necessary to be so violent. Why can't we handle this situation in a friendly polite discussion?"

"You can't stop over analyzing things can you? It's quite simple really. We had some very basic rules for our relationship, but you just have to argue and equivocate."

"Ooh Margot's using big girl words."

"I'm going to enjoy slaughtering you."

"I'm sorry. I can't help the sarcasm, it's an a defensive mechanism. I'm sure you understand."

"Oh I understand alright. Let's get this over with. All it will take is one shot and the issue will be settled once and for all."

Carrie sighed. "Fine, take your shot. I'm tired of trying to reason with you."

"Ha! For a smart girl you don't know the difference between reasoning and arguing." Margot took aim.

"Wait. Let me think for a minute."

"Too late," Margot grinned. The shot from half court was nothing but net.

Carrie ran to get the basketball, stood on the half court line and took her shot.

"Oh a brick, H-O-R-S-E spells horse. You've got dishes for the next TWO weeks!"

"You sharked me; that is so unfair," Carrie pouted.

"That's what you get for assuming you're more athletic than me."

Congratulations Wakefield, David, Phoenix, and Stacy! Claim your badges and display them with pride. You certainly earned it! :) 

Pass on the great news on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, shiny mirrors, Morse Code, and signal flags. Check out all the stories here and I hope to see you all back next week for #ThursThreads. :)

  1. Always exciting to get mentioned in one of these with all the tough competition. Congrats to Wakefield, Phoenix and Stacy too!
    (as for the full story version of mine, I'd actually like it to be a video game though I could also swing movie)
    Thanks, Janie and Siobhan!
