Re: Flash Fiction

This week's words to include are: frog, glasses, writing Professor McGonagall positioned her square framed glasses on her nose and looked over at the frog. "Well, what have you got to say for yourself this time?" she asked, severely. The frog croaked. "That's no excuse!" she replied, writing down he...

Re: Week 4 - Roleplay

Inigo had just finished a second mug of this lovely drink. He'd found out that the name of it is 'hot chocolate'. Replete, and still sleepy from all the hard labour, he sat back into his niche. Apparently a new scenario was evolving up on the podium. First off, everyone there was cleared of suspicio...

Re: The Paladin Prophecy: POD G4-3 - Wayfarer

I'm delighted to meet up with some of these folks. Obviously, this is a school for folks of talent. What is 'talent'? As written, it is just traits which might be dormant and get activated. Possibilities of genetics which become actual. What's funny, though, is that the author, Mark Frost, obviously...

Re: Week 3 - Roleplay

Inigo could tell that Han didn't care so much for this wonderful drink. When Han lowered his voice, Inigo was careful not to lean in to listen. His hearing was very good, and he didn't want to give any of the 'law' persons an excuse to suspect him of anything. He replied, using the same low tone. "I...

Re: Week 3 - Roleplay

Inigo had just finished his first taste of this wonderful, intoxicating beverage. The flavour, the richness, the wonder of it. He heard Han's voice (or course, he'd already seen Han moving closer) and he raised his face. "I don't know what we are drinking 'to'. Maybe the strangeness of this place? B...

Re: Week 3 - Roleplay

Inigo Montoya, finally slowing on his eating, gave more attention to the talk going on around him. A server came to the table, bearing a hot steaming something, what appeared to be a fluid something, in a large container. He thought to himself, a drink would be nice, and he returned to the table wit...

Re: Lesson 2 Discussion

There is the thing about coming up with a story idea, or developing a story idea, and doing bunches of research for it. This is what I was doing with Lesson 1 and the discussion and my 'then' story idea. I was researching (with much wonder and admiration) the techniques of fire-fighters and their su...

Re: Week 3 - Roleplay

Inigo felt he was becoming a bit too comfortable in his chair. His stomach was halfway full and he was fighting off sleep. His muscles were trained for something other than shoveling sand and lifting heavy sandbags to complete a dike and he was exhausted. The conversation around him, though, was int...

Re: Week 3 - Roleplay

Inigo Montoya was exhausted. Shoveling bags full of sand, running into houses to save anyone who might be sleeping, all the rest of the activity of the time of this 'disaster' left him longing for more food and a bed. Maybe not in that order. When some person came in yelling about a ring which had b...

This week's things to include are:

dragon, camera, ocean

Whilst sailing her skiff through the ocean, among huge swells and waves, the sailor saw, looking through the camera lens, a most perfect outline of a dragon in the wave. Then she realized that the dragon was real. [38 words]

Re: Week 3 - Creative

Inigo Montoya almost laughed. These people, this dream, whatever it was, was beginning to be entertaining. Such questions they ask and about things which Inigo found to be trivial and/or useless. Now they want to know about headquarters? He was a swordsman, the finest swordsman in the world. He had ...

The Scrapbook A few years ago, the 'then' head of HOLLERS, Professor Scarlet Leslie-Lewis, started up a Scrapbook wherein we could put our HOL Memories. We had so many that they got buried under their weight, pages and pages of them. So the current HOLLERS Heads, Polaris Black and Arianna Stonewate...

Re: Week 2 - Roleplay

Inigo was enjoying himself. He had been hungry and was now eating some very nicely cooked food. His thirst was also assuaged by the palatable liquids contained in generous pitchers with which he could refill his goblet. He nodded a thank you to the woman [Lara] and continued listening. He was startl...

Re: How It Works

Where possible, yes. But if there's something that you want to create for yourself (providing it doesn't contradict canon), then you can embroider your character's past with missing detail. Thank you for your prompt reply! Awesome. There is a lot of detail in his 'missing years' which is skimmed ov...

Re: How It Works

Thank you. :) I've another question -- in our writing, when we talk about our character, and/or use quotes, that all needs to be canon, yes? ie - I'm writing about Inigo, and make reference to someone of his past. This needs to be something that I can point to, in the book and/or movie? Or another e...
