I'm writing this as a bit of an action/drama/comedy for fun. The lines I find the funniest of were the most fun to write will be added here too.

Best Lines
Sure, his soldier was unaware that he was to be tied up and dropped in the den of a dragon-esque beast on an unfamiliar planet, and that sounded bad. But the man survived.


“I prayed all morning for this to be just a rumor,” she huffed. “I knew I should have attended church more often.”

The man Winnie was sitting with was fine. He introduced himself as Cory and she introduced herself as Rosanna. After all, if she was going to be someone else for a night she might as well go all out.

Rosanna was a student at a small liberal arts college in Philly named after some old British guy. She was just visiting D.C. because she’d never been to a city with real, breathable air that could be accessed without a protective mask. Sure, it was a bit of a dark story, but one had to give Rosanna a break. After all, her parents worked two jobs a piece when she was growing up, living paycheck by paycheck before she got a great scholarship and they knew everything would be fine.
