Bring the DARK!

This challenge has ended!

When I read a Ficly, I am always searching for the twist, the drama, the stab in the back.

I haven’t been on here very much lately, and as I read recent entries, I think you’ve all gone soft!

Torture your characters!

I want to see things in the shadows. I want to face a nightmare. I want to see their hopes and dreams crumble.

We cannot be heroes without something to overcome.

This doesn’t mean a happy ending can’t happen, but that there must be a burden before you get there.

Think you have what it takes to accept this challenge?

    hahaha, poor 32! Sometimes hand washing is cleaner..
    Can you do the dishes while also doing something else? Multitasking is a hero thing.. :)

    “We cannot be heroes without something to overcome.”

    I’m a hero every time I finish emptying the dishwasher. I hate doing it, I’d rather wash them by hand, dry them and put them away. There’s just something about bending over at a very odd angle, peering into a dark hole, and pulling out a clean dish. The unit themselves pretty much stink. And I’ve cut myself too many times when idiots put knives in standing straight up.

Want to join in the fun? Of course you do!
