    Awesome. Whatever happened to the May scores? Enquiring minds want to know, surely.

    Beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror which we are barely able to endure, and are awed,
    because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.

    Last Chance!


    ~

    This is it. This is your last chance. You have but two - two! - days to enter this month's Literary Manouevers competition. Not one, and certainly not three. You must enter; no choice. The lives of millions depend on your participation.1













    1 The above was found printed on torn shreds of what appeared to be the same newspaper, drifting in the wind outside gas stations serving the towns of Vitypole, Flectalium, and Twitte.

    That is IT. Your time is UP. It is much too late for any STRAGGLERS.


    Judges are busy reviewing your Submissions and assigning your Scores; upon receipt of Same I shall attempt to collate them into a meaningless jumble of Data, whereafter and subsequent to which, and being pursuant of the Rules, we shall ourselves declare a Victor, whose work will be celebrated with the popping of a proper Cork, issuing from the Neck of a standard Bottle containing a moderate Measure of sparkling Wine.

    As an Epilogue to this Event we shall now re-start the proceeedings of generating a List of suitable Prompts, and will begin voting on Them.

    This process to continue henceforth 'til Time endeth us All.

    Suggestions for July:

    It was a day like this, when . . .

    The sound of the train was getting closer

    What does he(she) see, when he(she) looks at me
    When the night has come
    And the land is dark
    And the moon is the only light we'll see
    No, I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
    Just as long as you stand by me.

    Second:
    Death Before Dishonor
    The Pleasure-Scales

    Suggest:
    Dying Breath
    Torn in Three
    The Scythe
    "So long is the way to the unknown, long is the way we have come. . ." ~ Turisas, Five Hundred and One

    "[An artist is] an idiot babbling through town. . .crying, 'Dreams, dreams for sale! Two for a kopek, two for a song; if you won't buy them, just take them for free!'" ~ Michael O' Brien,
    Sophia House

    Christ is risen from the dead,
    trampling on Death by death,
    And on those in the tombs,
    lavishing light.
