Side Effects

This challenge has ended!

The Challenge is:
Your character discovers that a new prescription has some bizarre side effects.

Do I have to keep it to one Ficlet?
No. If this sparks an entire series, the judge will be delighted.

May I submit more than one?

Do presentation & grammar count?
Always, and not just on Ficly; that’s everywhere.

Though I can be harsh, I’m not expecting perfect grammar.

Do spell-check, put spaces between your paragraphs, & try to follow at least basic grammar rules for coherency.

Although I’ll issue no formal judgment (not even after 01.01.15), I promise that any piece difficult to read won’t get the fullness of my love.

This challenge was not my own idea. I found it on the iPod application IStop WritersBlock

    The potential here is limitless. Seriously, go look up a list of every Paxil side effect. You can go in almost any direction with this challenge.

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