Do we have to incorporate the title of the drawing as well as the quote, or is the quote fine on its own?

Really the process should go: read the prompt, ignore the prompt, write the story you felt like writing, then go back and try to shoe horn the prompt back in. Shrug your shoulders and post.

I reread the prompt to try and figure out what got your panties into such a bunch and the best I can come up with is that you took my use of "incorporate" to mean quote verbatim as opposed to what I actually meant(quoted below).

systran posted:

I updated the prompt again to make it extremely clear that you should not copy and paste the quote into your piece. "Incorporate" meant that you should break up the essence of that quote so that it flows back into your work in wonderful ways.

Each picture comes with a title and a quote-such as the below. Since the prompt makes no mention of the title, I think it's fair game to ask for clarity.

I don't give a poo poo about the title of the drawing. I think the quote that goes with the picture and the Borges quote are enough constrictions so ignore the title of the picture if you want. If you want to cleverly work the title in as well then you are free to do so.

Oh jesus gently caress it's been this long already.

Sitting Here - Bury Me With Emeralds
Don't have a lot to add to this one, sorry for keeping you waiting! A strong, well put-together story with a clear progression from start to finish. Edged out by Malloons despite being stronger technically, I think.

Funky Malloons - Flightless Bird
Just gorgeous. I liked this one for the winner because, despite being a little clunkier in parts than Sitting Here's (a few odd word choices and somewhat jarring tone of the dialog at the end), I preferred the setting and story.

Kleptobot - Internet Relationship
This makes no sense at all. Vague hackers are doing a vague thing. Grammar is busted in places. An undercover FBI agent posts “sorry bro” in an IRC room when he thinks the guy he’s talking to has been arrested and so serves no purpose other than to clue the reader into the big shocking twist. Don’t care.

Noah - Second Place
Massively unclear opening. So there’s Orson and there’s James and they’re brothers I guess? “That’s what Marcy wanted” Okay so Marcy’s dead? Who’s Marcy? Here’s Samantha who- Oh Marcy’s not dead okay. James is the man of the house so his dad’s dead? Is Orson the oh what he’s the son alright gently caress this I’m starting over.
Manages to pull off some fairly unsettling imagery towards the end but by that time the point’s already been made. Imaginary snake bites him and he thinks okay, gonna kill my wife. Giant fly baby stabs him and he thinks yeah alright i’m gonna kill my wife gently caress just siddown.

Canadian Surf Club - Thomas Patt
This one just flows a little weirdly. Noticeable lack of commas and occasional run-on sentences. The overall feeling I had early on (particularly because of the line "She didn't doubt a word they said." after the couple had said he was a good man) was that Samantha believed Thomas had gotten involved in some bad stuff and that she was frustrated thinking that others knew more than she did, as opposed to less. Seemed a little weird when it became clear what had actually happened.

Bad Seafood - The Rock of the Selfish Child
Overall strong, couple phrases seem odd. “I’ve never seen my brother cry. He's always been the large one” reads a little oddly, and the last line just seems to be an attempt at writing a proverb and is really heavy handed.

Dr. Klocktopussy - Rosie's Bench for the Lonely
We’ve got orgasmic again god daaang. I quite like the lighthearted feel of this one, although I'm not seeing much to the end other than "and then she turned into a tree". Few weird proofreading things here and there, but a lot of fun.

Somewhere in Seattle a girl sits alone in her room, typing. The door is closed; febreeze only partially masking the stale, sweaty odours. Blue light from her monitor scatters off the thumbtacks pinning her anime posters to the wall. Satisfied, she wipes her hands on her jeans. The cheeto-dust stain will be the day’s only lasting accomplishment.

After I'm done here I'm coming after you.
