So, we all know that the writing contest has once again falling into forgetfulness. Though when it was running, there were enough entries to make this in a contest. Let's revive it!

Sqawl: I guess that I should be thankful that it rained during the morning and early afternoon, so I didn't have to hear the FUCKING FIREWORKS then.
Robbel: So it was a fireworks orgy?
Sqawl: yes

I'm up for basically any of the competent RPers hosting it (we're more or less the only active writers here anymore) and I'll do it myself if noöne else wants to.

Yesterday,

I watched three men die because one man sneezed in a room full of blood and shit and light.

Today,

three more men go in, cheap mops and each other's lives in their hands.

Yesterday,

I watched a man I admired gunned down for leaving a rose for a girl whose life was tattered by trauma she never deserved.

Today,

she doesn't remember, and three halls down I can hear her screaming.

Yesterday,

I watched a group of soldiers go down fighting against the corpses of comrades who'd died before them.

Today,

we test another sample, this time on children.

Yesterday,

I watched five men and women gunned down in an abandoned factory no one cares about.

Today,

it happens again and again. Every eleven seconds. Forever.

Yesterday,

I watched a man sit comfortably in a nice armchair, sipping scotch and laughing as he ordered a woman to simply stop breathing.

Today,

he gets the day off of work detail for good behavior.

Yesterday,

I watched hundreds of men and women in orange jumpsuits herded like animals into empty rooms that filled with gas and fire.

Today,

hundreds more are told they have a chance for a lighter sentence, and a chance to serve their country.

Yesterday,

I watched the world nearly die in a thousand thousand terrible ways. Sometimes we would have had time to scream.

Today,

I'm alive to write about it. You want happy endings? Fuck you.

You're alive to read it.

God help us all.

Hey, this guide is now a thing. Check it out if you're interested in Roleplaying.

[12:45:45 PM] Firefly Vansalon: btw guys
saying this in advance because it's relevant to planning RP things

I'm going to be out of state June 14-July 18. I officially have a job/internship thing/whatever you want to call it at the Lutheran Camp on mt. Petit Jean, so I'm leaving for there a day before the first week of camp starts (pretty sure I go a day early, anyway).
[12:46:06 PM] Firefly Vansalon: I'll have my phone, of course, but I'll never get a chance to be on except MAYBE sunday nights.
[12:474 PM] Firefly Vansalon: Monday-friday I'll be busy with the actual camp proceedings, saturday I'll be busy cleaning up (along with all the other staff) and sunday morning we'll be starting preperations for the next group.

I'd love to see this come back. I might actually compete this time around. No idea who the host should be, though.

Eh, I used to be afraid of not finding love. Then I just resigned myself to loneliness and started lusting after much older men.

What do you think? S/he hosts the contest. Just the same as the splicing and mapping contests.

[2/18/2014 6:17:17 PM] Bravely Vansalon: so who wants to be the host for this new one?
[2/18/2014 6:17:20 PM] Sɋawl: not it
[2/18/2014 6:17:21 PM] Bobo: huh?
[2/18/2014 6:17:25 PM] Bravely Vansalon: lol
[2/18/2014 6:17:35 PM] Rob: mmm, I may have time to do so
[2/18/2014 6:17:47 PM] Cevian: Not it
[2/18/2014 6:17:48 PM] Bravely Vansalon: I know I'll have time to do so, so if you're not sure...

[2/18/2014 6:20:16 PM] Bravely Vansalon: so...I guess it's either me or Rob
[2/18/2014 6:20:42 PM] Rob: We can do it together if you want
[2/18/2014 6:20:47 PM] Bravely Vansalon: indeed
[2/18/2014 6:20:57 PM] Bravely Vansalon: take turns hosting rounds I suppose?
[2/18/2014 6:21:02 PM] Rob: yuh
[2/18/2014 6:21:07 PM] Rob: something like that

Unless anyone objects, this is probably what we're going to do. I'll talk with Rob about who'll host round one and when it'll be up.

EDIT:

The rules, first host, and date have been decided. I'll be posting round 1 this saturday.
