Kaje Harper | 14397 comments November is around the corner and that means it is time once again to submit a picture to serve as inspiration for the November short story challenge. So please post your photo below. You have until Halloween night to post a picture, after that we will post a poll to choose the November pic.

So, open up your tumblrs and dust off your photobucket and post!

(And October's serial story is still ongoing over here so if you have a yen to start writing or want to give it a little twist, stop on by and post a few words. Anyone is welcome to contribute from one sentence to a page.)

message 11: by K (new)

K (K-polipetl) | 4090 comments Alas I cannot see BJ's picture....

and that Kiwi is just confusing me by coming in and exclaiming all over the place, I mean that many exclaimation marks, surely the sign of a disturbed mind :p


message 12: by Rach. (new)

Rach. S | 1728 comments :O The Monkey's picture is sweet - nakedness in a tub! And Sammy's second picture is CHROLLI!! Christian and Olli from Forbidden love! Jeez, don't you know your Gay German soaps K *sniffs in disdain* ;)


message 13: by Jo (new)

Jo Ramsey (Jo_Ramsey) | 1017 comments BJ's picture is inspiring, but--no offense, anyone--I'm not sure it's YA-ish.

I love the one with the two boys lying in the grass...


message 14: by Rach. (new)

Rach. S | 1728 comments I think it's fine :)

:p I don't watch any soaps at all.... and use a tissue, it's rude to sniff

and dammit! why can't i see nakedness in a tub? Not fair, I am having a bad day and that would definately improve it!

*raises eyebrows*
Like I would be interested in the "bits"!

Tattoos however..... *passes Rach a tissue*

Ah so these German soapy guys that sound a bit like a bacterial infection are the reason that we all keep getting pushed off the ship at sword point... at least we know who to blame now ;p


message 21: by Rach. (new)

Rach. S | 1728 comments lol YEP! I even sent you a you tube clip!! hahaha ;)


message 22: by Rach. (new)

Rach. S | 1728 comments And it's Sammy that pushes everyone off the ship, not me......*shifty eyes* And Gutter who steals all the chocolate. ;) And By who drools over all the guys in orange speedos. And Kat who steals all my glitter bombs. haha

If that's the case, how come I can see the tip of the cutlass you are holding behind your back over the top of your head whislt standing in your customary position next to the plank .... and how did your halo get that tarnished, I mean, it's nearly as bad as mine after a trip to the gutter!


message 24: by Kat (new)

Kat (cutestsubever) | 3691 comments Glitter bombs? Where???? Gimme, gimme, gimme!!! Now!

*jumps up and down*


message 25: by K (new)

K (K-polipetl) | 4090 comments Erm.... you do know what will happen if we get another thread all glittery, with chocolate smudges and covered in water......

nope???

oh well, in that case, someone pass the chocolate....


message 26: by Kat (new)

Kat (cutestsubever) | 3691 comments Ooooooooh *drops dead* Chocolate and glitter! That's almost like heaven. *happy sigh*


message 27: by Rach. (last edited Oct 30, 2012 05:47AM) (new)

Rach. S | 1728 comments Hmmmm yes well the plank ISSSSSS mine, as are all the hot guys and chocolate, AND the glitter bombs, *gives Kat one to shut her up*, and maybe I have a sword or three...but the rest!!...All lies!! ;D


message 28: by Kaje (last edited Oct 30, 2012 07:25AM) (new)

Kaje Harper | 14397 comments Rach - I love your picture of the three guys - so many ways that could work.

*sweeps up the glitter and then dumps it on Rach*

I think BJ's picture is okay - it might be a challenge to write a YA story with that scene that faded to black at the right moment. I think it can stand because we're not trying to pretend YAs don't have sex, just not show the bits in either words or pictures. BJ just managed to sneak in on the discreet side of naked picture posting IMO. But as a rule we're staying away from naked with these prompts.

If it bothers anyone more than me, please PM me.


message 29: by Camille (new)

Camille Adams (CamilleUAdams) Oh, I think no.17 has a lot of potential for a story.


message 30: by Kaje (new)

Kaje Harper | 14397 comments yeah - I love the third guy's expression, could be so many things...


message 31: by C. (new)

I get a whole page - did you want to link just one of them? You can look in the (some html is okay) above the comment box and cut and paste the image link code, then paste in the URL. Or tell me which one and I'll try it.

This one maybe?

message 33: by C. (new)

C. Kennedy | 184 comments Really? I just clicked on the link and got the ONE picture. It's a picture of two boys kissing, the back of one's T-shirt says: Love Is Love
I'll check into it again. So sorry.

Kaje Harper | 14397 comments Ah - it's a permissions issue. I see it.

Ah, I see.
Glad you like. :)


message 36: by BJ (new)

BJ (heresjohnny) | 381 comments Gutter? You called K? hahaha

And they're wearing pants in the pic I posted... no nakedness at all. I wouldn't post it if I didn't think it was appropriate being a young adult myself.


message 37: by K (new)

K (K-polipetl) | 4090 comments Ah ha! I knew it! I wasn't just occasionally letting my halo slip, fall off, roll away..... it was being deliberately stolen by the gutter monkey *snicker*

Now, if we can just come to some sort of arrangement about returning the halo.... I mean *whispers* I might even be tempted to take sides against the Kiwi....


message 38: by BJ (new)

BJ (heresjohnny) | 381 comments O ME?! What would I possibly need with a Halo? I certainly can't fool anyone anymore...

HEY! Wait a Second! What would YOU need with a Halo!? hehe ;) You take sides against the Kiwi anyway... because it's fun. I mean - because it's the right thing to do! ;) and there's more Aussies. Peer Pressure. *snickers*


message 39: by K (new)

K (K-polipetl) | 4090 comments Shush! I am still trying to fool them.... sometimes I can get people to believe I'm a good girl... okay, so people I don't know very well but, hey! you got to try!

They make quite good frisbees too....

Well I was trying to remain neutral on the whole Aussie/Kiwi debate (well argument is more like it!) but she will keep pushing me off the boat and feeding me to the sharks!!


message 40: by Rach. (last edited Oct 31, 2012 01:05PM) (new)

Rach. S | 1728 comments K!! It's not my fault you keep dancing along the plank and clumsily tripping off!! *sly look* haha and as for yooooooou Guttermonkey *flips the bird mhaha*, round up as many followers as you want but you will never beat the Kiwi. Never Never NEVEEEEEEEER *shrieks insanely and performs massively awesome ninja sword moves that wow EVERYONE into immediate adoration* hahahaha WHOOP! ;)


message 41: by K (new)

K (K-polipetl) | 4090 comments Oh, of course, it's my natural clumsiness that forces me to take my hands from the railings, shuffle along the plank at sabre point and even when gripping desperately to the end forces my fingers off till I fall... how silly of me not to have realised *puzzled face*

*ponders what we did with the sedatives, and if we can spike the Kiwi's raspberry bullets with it*


message 42: by Rach. (last edited Oct 31, 2012 05:43PM) (new)

Rach. S | 1728 comments :O Omg, enough with the date rape drugs K!!! I'm a taken woman! lol, and anyway, they're BJs domain haha ;)


message 43: by BJ (new)

BJ (heresjohnny) | 381 comments DAMN RIGHT THEY ARE! And don't you forget it Rach! Unless I want you to. ;) muahahahahaha

See K! If we gang up on her, I'll let you feed HER to the sharks... although she enjoys being pushed out of planes more :)

You forgot to add hypothetical Kiwi's.... unless of course you want to take responsibility for the Kiwi ;)


message 46: by BJ (new)

BJ (heresjohnny) | 381 comments hahahahaha Weren't you part of the original pirate situation Kaje? (it's all a bit fuzzy, I think the Kiwi might have gotten hold of my stash) :S hahaha ;)

Yep, I started that thread over in the adult group (because we were monopolizing their intro thread :) It's still there http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/7... should adult members want to go beyond PG with the pirates or the sharks (sounds a bit risky, that...)

We're married in pretend life, G! of course I have your stash, and all your porn mags, and your chocolate rations, and any clothes that might look good on me mhahaha - you can keep the coffee and your blow up boyfriend doll however *shudders* hahahahahaha ;) And as I recall you abandoned me on the plummeting plane to go make moon eyes at RR!!! NO LOYALTY I TELL YA! *sidekicks BJ off the back of the boat into shark infested sea* Now where's that K. I'm sure she was saying something smartarse about Kiwis somewhere........ :P

Hi Kaje *gives guilty wave* I'm sure its not always me that throws the threads into dissarray.... :D
