So how this works is you give a sentence with the topic that the last person gave, and then you come up with your own.

Ex: Theme- Stuck and freezing to death in an igloo

Sentence- "Cold. So cold," Nora whispered, struggling to keep her voice at a barely audible tone.

New theme: Helping on a farm.

Interesting idea.

We stacked the hay at the back of the barn, flattening mounds of manure beneath out boots, breathing through our mouths so we wouldn't have to suffer the smell.

Next: Killing Vladimir Putin

The knife glinted as I brought it to Vladimir's throat, and he attempted to fight me.

Dalton's biceps flexed and his veins bulged as he lifted the 50 lbs dumbbell, his mind focused on the wrestling competition just two weeks away.

New theme: Falling down the side of a cliff.
HOPE (main WIP) (10369 words)

Request a critique via VM/PM and I'll get to it as soon as possible.

My arms spread behind me and I dipped, allowing my auburn hair to get caught in the wind, dancing like a flame around my face as I flew to the earth below. Dying was even better than I imagined.

Next: Running from a killer.
You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch him now, here he comes
He doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
Like you imagined when you were young

I made my legs go forward as I glanced back at the burly man with a gun.

Hey pony, you didn't leave a theme behind for someone else.
At the graveyard sits Injuin Joe
Shovel in hand and a frown of woe
Merry no more, you have found a foe
He's bound to dig up all you will sow.

I'll make one.

Theme: Another wedding.

Do you, Matthew Ames, take Sophie Cassandra Priestly to be your lawfully wedded wife?

You know he's only marrying her for her fathers money.

You're kidding?!

Not this time.

I do.

Next: A sailor in rough seas

An intro sentence is one sentence guys, just fyi, but as long as the OP is chill with it, whatevs.

Every time the ship lurches my bowels tighten and I'm sure that this time the ship will flip over and suck me down, and I have this funny notion in my head that right after I'm finally swallowed up the storm clouds will just disappear and the sea will finally rest.

Next: A man visits his parents after coming home from war.

It takes me half an hour to find them in the rows of identical stones, but eventually I can set my pack down next to their graves.

Next theme: Someone released from some kind of prison.

Pro-tip: because my first instinct is to procrastinate anything I see as an obligation or responsibility, asking me for a critique is a good way to make sure I never give you a critique.
