P.S. I'm also judging our match.

You're on. Judge man, hit me with a prompt.

Oh is this where we sign up for a J/O buddy? I was confused I thought this was dick-smashing, ball-crushing Thunderdome

Judges give me someone hardcore to fight.

My circlejerks are always hardcore.

Ever play that game where you throw a peanut up in the air and try to catch it in your mouth? It's a lot like that.

I'm currently writing a paper about the practice of taking skulls as trophies during the Pacific conflict, so I'm feeling pretty hardcore. GIVE ME A PARTNER SO I CAN STRIP THE FLESH FROM THEIR FACE AND USE THEIR MANDIBLE AS A BOOT SPUR.

gently caress you in the face, there's nothing more hardcore than the beef I'm bringing. Once I've slaughtered Bonerman, you're next.

This is only hardcore if you are in the same room with other people and throw it too far to one side or the other and both lunge for it at the same time and both end up in terrible terrible pain.

Alternate theory: I am just an idiot.

THUNDERDOME LOSER

For those of you waiting for a prompt, or on the fence about getting in - here is a teaser prompt.

Only ONE pair will get this prompt. So you can start writing for it now but do so in the knowledge you have, currently, a 1 in 10 chance of being allocated this choice.

A Horde of Corpses



From the latest 'Recommended Reading' by Electric Literature.

quote:

“James Stewart with his haunted expression is dead, and the balding man at the bar behind him (his blonde hair brushed back from his calvity) dead, and the romantic trio in the background (the woman in the dovegray pea coat, her date in his charcoal suit, the tall gentleman chaperoning the two of them) every one of them dead, struck down by the last half century.”


Write the story of the death of one (or more) of these characters. The dead person cannot be Stewart, although he should be involved in the death in some way.

A tip for for the uninitiated, if ESB asks you to do this, it is never a finger ring. And despite what he says, there's nothing in the Thunderdome rules that says you have to.

Is there anything in the rules against cutting the ring out? Hypothetically.

All that is truly great in life is unhygienic, and typically involves an rear end in a top hat.

Oh no, don't psych yourself out.

Like I should have named myself Rose Confidence or something. But no I had to go for the fractured-fairy-tale feel. Now look at me.

Anyway eat a couple emotes and psych yourself up for action-packed chase scenes, this is Thunderdome and nobody wants a pacifier.

Not true, I use my binky (thunderdome industry term) to assuage the savage gnashing of my teeth so that I don't chew through my own lower jaw while listening to the pitiful mewling and bleating pre-game time.

That's why you get a bite guard. With metal spikes on the side so nobody stands too close to you. And a chainsaw helmet.

Also more people should post works in progress or projects, I want to concrit someone so hard their weakness bleeds out on the spot and makes them a stronger better writer.
