Boone Spaulding, if we ever see him again. He hasn't responded to my confirmation PM, but he could just be busy for the week. I'd hate to see you lose your opponent, Chester.
Michael Thomas might be on our list of folks who need temp access as well. Not sure about that. Also has not responded to confirmation.
Two non-confirms? Hmmmm.
I think meat seeker needs/wants a pass if she hasnt already chimed in!
@nikki - i figure it could come down to you two in the southern brackets. so, bring it on sister. :-)
I could use a temp-pass, too, if I get a chance to play.
Well looks like I might be making an appearance after all. Let the blood bath begin. I am a sucker for punishment. Give me a ringer. Might as well get beat by a bad ass.
Oh yeah, and to whoever I might face: Everything I'm about to do to you, I learned at Sea World.
So the Korp mister fills one of the slots? (no pun intended.)
Awesome. He'll need a doughnut after I'm done with him.
"Might as well get beat by a bad ass."
You already did get beat by a bad ass. Just recently.
You already did get beat by a bad ass. Just recently."
You already did get beat by a bad ass. Just recently."
I'll have to come back to that...I can only fight one woman at a time and currently someone is giving me bull shit about resturants or something. One fight at a time.
I know Boone is probably traveling right now. I will be very surprised if he bails. And I hope he doesn't. Seriously, that guy can write.
Okay, so everyone who wants a pass will get one if I have anything to say on the matter (which isn't saying much).
Yes, Closure is already on the list. I will be compiling the list.
For now, I'm off to wave a brush around.
We'll not get the cart before the horse just yet. I'm not booting anybody today for not confirming with me. I'd imagine these folks might have stuff going on in their lives. We'll leave them in their spots for the time being. We don't start for more than two days.
Yes please Meat Seeker would like to read and vote on all the battles!!!
if - IF - i mean seriously major IF - i wouldn't be surprised OR even upset if i was eliminated early on, we'll see about the stories when the prompts roll on - i faced off with Nikki, i think she'd take me down. she brings lasers and semen and unicorns and guitars, i bring cigarettes and murder and broken toys and mental patients. her KABAM would surely hip-bump me out :)
wait i mean I WILL TASTE THE BLOOD OF MINE ENEMIES AND YOU WILL ALL DIE HORRIBLY AND CRY LOTS AND...
not that good with threats. i'll just hold a gun and silently spit to the side like clint eastwood.
Oh I don't know about that. I'm thinking of shaking things up just to fuck with people. But semen and unicorns do seem my go-to. Actually if I was in for the win I'd take a look at what my opponent does writing style and just try to outdo them. But I'm in it to fuck with people and get good stories which isn't to say I'm opposed to winning.
Well, I want everybody to win. Until they battle me. Then I would like them to stop winning.
If our prompt is UNICORN SEMEN, i think I'm officially fucked. I only write Hippo Semen.
yeah i'm just going to do the best i can with whatever the prompt is. i don't really want an 'i've out-maneuvered you' win if i could have an 'i wrote an awesome story' win.
where will the prompts come from? are you crowd-sourcing them?
i heard Avery hides the prompts in her jumblies and they have to be milked out for each round.
it came out when i was burping chester. i can tell you eat a good deal of organic. no erping up at all. good for you. and may i say the bouquet on chester's breath was intoxicating. i can't wait!
Good news: Utah was right about my super-busy week - it's all good and all fuel for the WAR.
I'll commence crawling the message boards...lots to catch up on...
Doll's jumblies seem to BIG talk around here.
No one notices my jumblies, even tho I artfully highlight them in my profile pic...
boone regarding your jumblies ... you got the body of a boy.
True, true...sad but true.
any chance we can get our prompts BEFORE Friday? i'm going to be off work on Friday and would love to be able to work on this, as well as a few other projects, that day.
Well, since the brackets are all filled, I don't see why not. But I've three more people who need to confirm before we do that.
meanwhile, in the blood vessels.. I'm infecting evvrybody here!
A little viral warfare? Wish I'd thought of that.
QUESTION FOR THE MASSES:
After I get the final three people confirmed for participation, who all is interested in getting this thing kicked off early? Looks like we're all pretty much ready to rock. Let me know.
I'm in favor.
Does anyone facebook with these people?
i'm ready to rock.
I am not in contact with any of the three
Let's DO IT!
Why the hell isn't Mr. Korpon a listed alumni with free workshop access? HUH?
Also, is there a way we can just number the alternates and make them a third set of battlers in the brackets?
I'm not doing the math, someone else do it.
I ran the math on it. Basically we'd have to have a separate round just for them and five regular contestants to pare down to 32.
All contestants are confirmed. Brackets stand as they are.
Prompts drop tomorrow around 5:00 PM CST.
Good luck everyone!
Sweet Boone-doggler: Glad you made it squirrel man!
Thanks Nik, gonna need some of that luck stuff.
Early prompts. Hell yes. I was hoping that might happen before my cerebral vortex spins itself into a convolution trying to guess.
Okay, reading this thing over, I think the solution that will work generally better for everyone, myself included, will be to make the DEADLINE SUNDAY, MARCH 18, @ 10:00 PM CST. So, we have a date and timing change. This schedule will make this whole thing smoother, I think. It will give everybody, including us procrastinators, a whole weekend to either write or finish our story. And it will mesh way more smoothly with my family life. An undivorced Utah is a happy Utah!
Aside from this shift back of two days and five hours, the schedule remains the same. We run the rest of this on two week cycles. A week of writing, a week of polling.
This will be the final adjustment of time for this competition. Future rounds will not be extended because we got spoiled on a 10-day schedule this time. All future rounds of writing will be one week.
I had a feeling 300 would show up.
Ugh. Can't get the video up on my phone.
Any drop outs? If not I think I am going to keep the username to honor the war. You did something great Utah. Be proud.
EDIT- apparently my question was just answered. Good luck everyone. Let the games begin.
Good shit LK
FFS. I hate that I'm far too late for this. I'd like to drop my name for the next one of these 'events' that kicks off.
Yay! Go Grigori go! I barely even started this WAR and I already can't wait for the next one!
