Letter:
1. Vicki, Questing for a Buddy

Location: Perhaps Italy or Australia, but anywhere my friend will be.
Playing for: Friendship, as in best buddies, male, female, gay, straight, transgender, any race. I just want a really good friend!
I have had a lot of good boyfriends: Daemon (my first true love, an alien!), Will, Rock, and so many others that I lost focus of how important it is to have a really, really good (hopefully best) friend. I hope that I am able to find that now because I need it in my life. We can fangirl together, talk boys or girls (whatever suits his/her fancy). I have never truly gotten over Daemon and I will forever keep the Obsidian matching necklace and earrings he gave me. I'll treasure them forever, but I am ready for a GOOD BUDDY!!

Picks:
Game 1:

Pink → City → #1 → Socializing → Circle → B → And the Winner Is ... !

Women 1-10 are lined up. You must now eliminate 5 of them.
We asked all the women which location they enjoyed more on a first date.

A) Being in the city.
B) Being in the country.

Which would you prefer?

If you pick A, the cover of your book must have a light source (doesn't have to be lit) or an item that is silver, gray, gold, or yellow.

If you pick B, the cover of your book must have a plant or an item that is any shade of green or blue.

Note: Words that are one of the colors are acceptable. If literally anything on the cover has one of those colors, it works.
