 Fiction: Coffin Dodgers (Episode 2) - by Rupe (1617 words) - Date online (18-09-2009)
Scripts

A second episode of my sitcom idea, Coffin Dodgers - in which Vera is visiting by her odious nephew, Julian & his even more odious girlfriend, Tiaramisu & there's a bit of a mix-up with board games. I've been trying to put this together for so long that I no longer have any feeling for whether it's funny or just lame. I hope you'll tell me.

Now, you'll need to read this with an imaginary Ulster accent, which in its way is simillar to Scottish (a bit). Apologies once more for the swearing - I should get away from profanity I think - but never mind...

 Fiction: True Love Never Dies. (Prose Challenge) - by RoyBateman (1827 words) - Date online (31-08-2009)
  
Romance

A last-minute substitution, in light of this week's challenge: a tribute to a generation that maybe cried less than we do, though God knows they had plenty to cry about. What Hollywood would have called a three-handkerchief weepie. I admit, it works for me...

...They decided they would both go for a walk, earlier than the normal 7 AM. That wasn’t difficult since neither of them slept that night. They were both up and ready by 6 AM, stepping out just as the birds were beginning to shuffle around in the trees around them. The ground was wet as a small rainstorm had passed by the previous night. The fresh smell of wet earth hit them and an unknown joy filled their heart. This day was going to change their life forever…or whatever was left of it...
