Thunderdome Week CLXIX Results: Thunderdome O' Bedlam

At its best, this week was pleasant. Nothing set our world on fire. Nothing flushed it down the toilet, either, always a nice surprise, yet we would have liked more: more sympathetic characters. More plots that made sense. More endings. And in some cases, fewer words. Did you know throwing subplots into a story until you fill up the word count doesn't automatically make it stronger? Now you do.

There still had to be a winner, and we didn't have too much trouble settling on something we all liked.

THE WINNER: Congratulations, crabrock! Your story didn't aim for the stars, but it was a fun, coherent, self-contained romp that made good use of a difficult verse and entertained every judge.

An HONORABLE MENTION goes to Jocoserious. Good job! You delivered a plot and a satisfactory conclusion; you might have taken the throne if the more compelling Wielder had been your main character. Regardless, you made a solid showing and can wear your laurels proudly.

THE LOSER: If it's any consolation, brotherly, this wasn't unanimous. Unfortunately for you, the goon-approved stereotypes of gamers are tired and dull, your twist was obvious far too early, Lee's obliviousness spoiled the mood you tried to build, and it's awfully helpful if your villain has more breadth than a Post-It.

The lone DISHONORABLE MENTION goes to Fuschia tude for a story in which a man's shrewish wife berated him at every opportunity and yet their separation was painted as a bad thing. We were bemused by Cindy's speech patterns, especially given that the foreign roots they suggested didn't turn out to matter at all.

Thank you, everyone who submitted; crabrock, good luck and Godspeed!

TD CLXX: Cities & Kaiju



Look at that lazy lizard. He's all tuckered out from DESTROYING CITIES AND EATING CHILDREN. This week you are writing about Kaiju.



Your task this week is to write about a monster destroying a city. Or fighting in one and loving it up. "Oh boy, I'm totally going to write about the Golden Gate bridge getting destroyed!" Not so fast, sucka. I will assign you a city. Or small town. Or anything in between. Too many stupid stories/movies are about the same cities getting destroyed over and over. You're going to get a bit more creative.

Here's a good checklist for writing your story:

1. Does this story have an giant monster wrecking poo poo? (no fanfic)
2. Does this story have any characters I care about?
3. Does this story skip all the boring world building bullshit?
4. Does the town actually play a prominent role, and taking this story and plopping it in any other city would lessen it?

The winner will answer "yes" to all of those questions. If you write a story and answer "no" to any of those, then you are a dumbhead.

For any of the lovely non-american goons, just a reminder that we lost an hour this week because of daylight savings time, so make sure you know when midnight hits the east coast, because it may have changed in relation to your normal time keeping homeland.
