GREETINGS, SURVIVORS. THIS IS THE ISLAND SPEAKING. BEHIND THE INTERWORKINGS OF THE AUTHOR’S MIND I HAVE WOVEN AN INCREDIBLE TALE. WHO HAS SURVIVED MY TALE?

By the way, how can something taste green? However, unripe is a whole other story. Island, stop looking over my shoulder, I’ll give you the scores when I’m done!
@Animal_lover_3157 Lack of a password, but I’ll let it slide. Your interpretation of the instructions and having two perspectives (without breaking rules by putting them together at same place and time) is intriguing.

Plot- (9 Points before penalty) -1 Point
Use of Materials- -10 Points (for lack of usage)

(Julie) 8 Points
(We’ll allow both characters to have separate scorings in this round.)

(Julie) 3 Points
Total: 19/56 (+ Was offered second life–turned it down.) (All bonus points included in total.)
@Eternal_Foxglove As a note, that tactic can be frowned upon. Can’t wait to see how well it works! Reminder, every post needs a password just to ensure that you’ve read the rules.
Writing Itself- 18 Points (Keep in mind, there were some clear errors, but not enough to deserve point loss.)
Plot- 4 Points
Use of Materials- 11 Points
Character him/herself- 9 Points (Hey, I felt really connected.)
Magic- 0 (No mention of magic or other abilities.)
Total: 44/56 (All bonus points included in total, including bonus points for humor.)
Oh, no-- It’s too humorous… Must laugh. Starting with the running rock.
@SmokeAndOranges Hey, Silversand! So, you seem to rely heavily on what other people have told you, and you spent much of your time thinking about your friends. It’s good that you care, but it takes energy away from more important manners. Your parachute home (check out parachute canopy tents online, they’re awesome) was a good idea, though there may have been a chance that the heat would still severely affect you. You avoided our poisonous critters well. However, you made a slip up when you decided to replenish your water supply from the cactus, as water from directly within the cactus can cause a number of bad things (check out “cactus water will make you sick” by Arizona Daily Independent). Plus, the cactus is not poisonous, therefore, it wouldn’t have been in the book to begin with. Good job on your efforts to find help, though. “SILVERSAND FOUND” HEADLINES READ. SILVERSAND WAS FOUND ON A DESERT ISLAND, SURVIVING ALL ALONE AMONG THE POISONOUS CREATURES WHO CALLED THIS PLACE THEIR HOME. HOWEVER, SHE CAME DOWN WITH SEVERE STOMACH ACHES, DIARRHEA, AND WAS NEARLY STARVED. RECOVERY WILL TAKE SOME TIME.
@Animal_lover_3157 Hey, Maria and Julie! Although, you guys did not explain how you survived for so long, your story was truly eye-capturing. The island claimed your souls for some time, but what came of this? “BEAUTIFUL SISTERS FOUND DEAD ON SAME BEACH.” HEADLINES READ. NO ONE KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED. BUT I, THE ISLAND, AM A FORGIVING ONE AT TIMES. BE FREE NOW, LOST SOULS.
@Eternal_Foxglove Hey, Narcissus! Welcome back, I see you were revived just fine. The island is pleased to see you as well, and that you came prepared. You have a very good mood for surviving, and you acted very realistically. You could say that I was excited to hear about your progress on the island (don’t ask, I have my ways). You were quick to set up camp, a good move. As well, you wasted no time adjusting–after tripping around for a while. The contingency plan for our desert friend was a good one, though, even the best of us get lonely and it’s a good way to keep sane. As well, the little guy led you to natural food sources during your stay. On the dumb side, cacti are not poisonous, but drinking their water has bad effects on the body. And, even eating matured cacti flesh is dangerous for your health. LAST TIME, YOU WERE MINE. BUT I AM A CLEVER ISLAND. THERE WILL BE NO ‘ROCKY’ TO HELP YOU NEXT TIME. NARCISSUS LIVED, THOUGH WITH A TERRIBLE STOMACH ACHE. HIS LITTLE FRIEND WAS THE SOURCE OF HIS RESCUE WHEN A TEAM OF ARMADILLO RESEARCHERS FOUND THEM.
In third place is @Animal_lover_3157
In second place is @SmokeAndOranges
In first place is @Eternal_Foxglove
Congratz, everyone, on your efforts in this round!
Next island will appear soon…
