The Cowboy finally shows up... Where the fuck ya been, man? I'd accept, but my novel is spinning my yarns in my head and I can't think of anything else.

David, your pic looks like the lead singer of Blue October pulled a trigger in his mouth. It just came to me now.

That's too bad Rian. I think you and me throwing down would have been a lot of fun.

Get you on the next one maybe.

@Rian, that was a picture of my halloween costume from two or three years ago. I stayed in character and blacked out.

@Cowboy, I challenge thee! Just need a prompt now.

Can I pick the prompt?

How about a guy goes to a sex club with his friends like an S&M place and sees his ex-girlfriend there...go!

Is it Aliensoul77's prompt?

cowboywerewolf from DC is reading Homage to Catalonia December 7, 2011 - 9:57am

also, how thinly is it generally allowed to stretch the prompt? I've got an idea that could almost kinda sorta fit into that.

Also, this is my first one and I haven't been paying as much attention to the rules... what are the stakes?

We stretch rules all the time. Bragging rights or books for stakes, your choice. Don't matter to me.

David, have you actually gotten to have a poll for yourself yet?  Did I miss it? 

cowboywerewolf's picture

@aliensoul77  heh... actually, the sex part is the part I'm keeping. It's more the "ex" that was giving me trouble.

@David Hanson  How about this for stakes... not just bragging rights, but the loser has to dedicate their next, non-thunderdome piece to the winner, in the Authors agenda?

@averydoll, no one that I've been in a battle with has gone all the way with both drafts. So I guess I'm 2-0 by virtue of my opponents not showing up.

@David Hanson You don't have to worry about that from me. I'm in this thing for the long haul.

I think David deserves a book. The guy's been challenged twice and both times his challenger fell off the face of the earth. What the hell? But, I think this one's gonna be real, real good. Looking forward to both of your stories. Good luck, guys!

Now that I've got an eensy bit of writing time back I'd like to challenge someone. And have rematch with David, next time he's free. But until then, who wants to pick up that gauntlet? TREMBLE IN YOUR BOOTIES YOU JERKS.

Okay Jack and Renfield, here's your prompt: He taped a key to the back of each hand, filled his pockets with ash and placed a penny under his tongue. 

Do what you please with it. Have fun.

Has anyone given David and Cowboy a prompt?

@R.Moon: aliensoul77 gave us one: "How about a guy goes to a sex club with his friends like an S&M place and sees his ex-girlfriend there...go!"

I'm gonna be bending that pretty far, but hopefully will be able to keep the spirit of the thing.

I agree. We should start a Litreactor foundation.  The Save Danny's Penis Foundation. We could write stories and any proceeds from the publications goes to buying him a hooker of his choice. 

Alien: Any thoughts on this? :D

Yeah, but people call those lines wanting their clothes to come off. I'd be impressed if the clothes came off without the motivation.

Please, he's probably getting more than any of us. 

- You're probably right.
