TD CLX: Spin the wheel!

I’ve compiled a list of fun literature genres. Sign up, spin the wheel, and you’ll get two! Yes! Two! How exciting! Please mash them together and write about “the price being right.” I dunno what that means so hopefully you won’t disappoint me!

Spin the wheel!
Uh-oh. Got an ugly combo? Scared of getting locked into an ugly combo? Well if you decide to lay down a on yourself then I will give you two (yes! two!) results! You can pick either. You don’t get to mix-and-match. Please still write about “the price being right” because that is your theme.

Spin the wheel!

The man was stunningly well dressed. He had a smart looking jacket, and a really neat looking cape, the lining of which was shimmering and sparkling in more than Oriental splendour, which is a great deal of splendour indeed, just ask Kipling.

I will two, please. I would like to two.

Fuschia tude, we both know why you got assigned that rule. And it's definitely not because you can make a decent story out of it. It's because you're a class-A sucker. You've got more DMs than me and that's saying something.

Karma, what?

You have as many DMs and losses as me on 2/3 as many stories. The meaning of that is clear to me, but since it's apparently not to you, let's settle this one on one, without any of those pesky "other, better writers" getting in the way.

How appropriate. kurona_bright is long pig covered in santorum.

It's a good thing 2 out of 3 judges will rate my story better than that filth or i will be forced to crit 5 of k_b's stories in an oeuvre crit of at least 1000 words



yes blood more blood all the blood

I approve of this arrangement.

According to the cyborg's number crunch thing:

Newt ranked Kurona_bright above me in score
Sebmojo ranked us the same in score but me above k_b in ranking
You, Blood Queen, gave us both the same very low score. But you must have hated one of us more.

(and in your dark heat of hearts, it was Kurona_bright, wasn't it?)
