My friend finished another chapter about Jean. It’s not such a downer this time. Jean actually smiles.

The chapter, titled “Arrival,” can be found here: https://www.wattpad.com/687900605-earthworks-arrival


#1031

Oh no.
I wanted to be the first for once.

Can you just, like, pull yours down for editing.
Just for a few minutes.

“The Contract” has just been published.

2 stories already showing. Yours might too if you added this week’s tag :slight_smile: Taking lessons from downunder? :joy:


#1034

And that is the way to do it.

You are welcome here.

Heehee minibrit and TWoogle - first place for the moment.
Is this truly what larrikinism can earn, or is it more like ‘the condemned man/woman ate a hearty breakfast’?? - and the axe-fall is imminent? ‘whooooosh’ - [that was close] -
“Get yerself a proper boomerang next time - NOT one of those chinese look-alikes with the mechanised dots!” she was heard to shout.

(Sorry but there’s no little Pink Hacker Girl with the right expression, although this one’s pretty reasonable -

My friend @decafs has a question: Is it okay to present two stories about “arrive” in the same week?

He realized that he already had a chapter (coming in at 409 words) that had never been posted here.

The chapter concerns the character She-Hulk, cousin to the Hulk. She’s green, can get angry, but she retains her intelligence at all times (well, she decided to become a lawyer, so who knows?).

If it’s copacetic, then here is the link to the second story about “arrive”:

#1037

Well, I did it before but apparently in my enthusiasm, forgot to hit “save”.

and I only see Christine’s story on my search.


#1038

Oh, weird, I see Christine and decafs.


#1039

Well, to give the darling her due; Christine’s “Here Come the Shearers” is the first to show up on the new and improved search results.


#1040

@decafs - Well seeing as I did 2 parts of the same story for the same prompt last week, I’m all for it!

Here is my friend’s entry for this week - he says he may do a second one again, to get more into the alt history and ARRIVAL of several threats from beyond in that parallel 1941!

Also as some of you seemed to miss Father Time being directly in the story, here’s ol FT … but he’s still not getting the best of his situation!


#1041

and now you’re there! It’s a xmas miracle. Or a code fix.


#1042

No rules here! Two stories is twice as good :slight_smile:


#1043

And now he isn’t. all I’m seeing is @decafs’s and @cdcraftee’s stories I’ll give it 24 hours.
