  1. Avatar Gradual Uprising {LoA}

    The game is afoot

  2. Avatar Gradual Uprising {LoA}

    Well done chicos! I’ll get started on the next one

  3. Avatar H.S. Wift

    I don’t care about the law. If anyone steals Tyler in the sequel, I will physically abuse you.

  4. Avatar Gradual Uprising {LoA}

    LMR (aka. Maria Yzecka) is going to win the challenge. three cheers! and now we await her Dobbins story.

  5. Avatar Gradual Uprising {LoA}

    Haha completed. Chill down folks. We can have more than one gay guy in our class. Thankyou all for writing. I will get a new challenge set up for these students.

  6. Avatar Mr.Gabriel

    I just want everyone is know that BEN IS THE GAY ONE! With a crush on Randy. God, that’s the last time I’m so subtle.

  7. Avatar Music-Hearted

    Uh… well… I wrote one. Yeah. Great challenge!

  8. Avatar H.S. Wift

    YEEHAW! WE GIT OURSELVES A LIVE ONE! Desk #7 has been filled. One more left to go. I can almost smell the Boobins.

  9. Avatar H.S. Wift


    That’s what Gandalf would say if he could see you idiots who look at this page and go “Hey, there’s something I like the look of, but I’m probably depriving better writers of the chance.” PAY NO ATTENTION TO THAT VOICE! YOU’RE GOOD ENOUGH!

  10. Avatar Mr.Gabriel

    Ben is already gay though…

  11. Avatar H.S. Wift

    I guess. I just enjoyed the concept of a love triangle incorporating a boy, a girl and their teacher

  12. Avatar Gradual Uprising {LoA}

    I think two people lusting over the Dobmeister is a little much. Maybe over one of the other guys, or just in his own little world.

  13. Avatar H.S. Wift

    Ah, my mistake. Guys is a confusing word to use. It’s cos of the Ben story when he mentioned they were all friends. I was going to wreck Tyler’s life before I saw he could skateboard. I think We should have a person with a homosexual lust for dobbins, and if they win, they have to make dobbins homo

  14. Avatar Mr.Gabriel

    I’m not waiting for Mr. Doobins story. I like the way the kids are all connected. The only importance the teacher (I think at least) could have was having an affair with whoever was the one that liked him.

  15. Avatar Gradual Uprising {LoA}

    HS- yea i’m talking bout the dudes. the girls are perfectly diverse, but our guys lack stamina. let’s get a gay, or a geek, or a bully or something that contrasts our fantastic four Tim, Tyler, Ben, and Randy

  16. Avatar H.S. Wift

    I disagree, i think Nathaniel walked the path of the loner with Liz

  17. Avatar Gradual Uprising {LoA}

    by the way, our guys are all popular so far. Make one of them a loner, or at least heavily overweight. :) haha get crazy with it.

  18. Avatar Gradual Uprising {LoA}

    Hold back PJ. I wana have 12 different people with me on this.

    I agree HS. So I have decided to postpone the Boobin story. Only the writer who I deem winner of this challenge may write the Dobbins piece.

  19. Avatar H.S. Wift

    Methinks ppl are waiting to write mr _Boob_ins’ story. Swallow youre will to make maths teachers look good, you probably teach english, anyway, so just try and find youre youth again

  20. Avatar Wednesday [PJ] ((LoA))

    I am so tempted to write both of the missing ones. Someone write them!

  21. Avatar Gradual Uprising {LoA}


    This week was such a pain! Sorry.

    I will make a sequel challenge. Don’t you worry, but we still lack some puzzle pieces to this one.

  22. Avatar Mr.Gabriel

    hah. I’m glad people liked my ‘_Boob_ins’ joke thing I made up.

  23. Avatar H.S. Wift

    I love the concept, and I’d like to see what they’d do and how different friendship’s would evolve and break, please make a sequel challenge (For want of a better term)

  24. Avatar Wednesday [PJ] ((LoA))

    I feel rejected. Nobody likes Heidi! xD

  25. Avatar Violet Turner

    I heartily agree with Ruby, Someday, etc. Gradual Uprising, could you set up another challenge, perhaps with the same characters in a different scenario?

  26. Avatar LMR

    Ruby: I’d be really interested in seeing this story evolve with the same characters, maybe giving us a central conflict in their shared lives and working with that.

    I’m so glad this was my initiation into Ficly.

  27. Avatar Ruby Slippers

    Two to go… I would almost like the teacher’s perspective to be another seperate challenge. Or maybe it’s just that I like this challenge so much I don’t want it to end.

  28. Avatar Gradual Uprising {LoA}

    No sorry. I had no internet all day. I was bolding the names of stories already written. To see who was left. Just a sec

  29. Avatar H.S. Wift

    Are those names and numbers bold because of editing? If so, maybe it should be updated?

  30. Avatar H.S. Wift

    Can I just say, I want to be Tyler and I want to be in this class. I at least want to see this on TV

  31. Avatar H.S. Wift

    I think #12 seems like a person I can ruin the life of

  32. Avatar LMR

    I’m starting on #10 right now. Looking forward to seeing where it’ll take me!

  33. Avatar Ruby Slippers

    Working on Randy, Desk 2 – great challenge.

  34. Avatar Nathaniel Payne

    Writing desk #3 (Liz) right now.

  35. Avatar Mr.Gabriel

    Bold means already done. Good job. And already featured. Cool.

  36. Avatar Gradual Uprising {LoA}

    by the way. _Boob_ins’ little spat with Tim doesn’t have to be incorporated in each story. It could be a complete minor sidenote, or irrelevant to some of the other students. A lot could have happened while our #8 was day-dreaming, #6 was doodling, and #5 was idk, reading

  37. Avatar Wednesday [PJ] ((LoA))

    I didn’t have an eight-grade year, but enjoy!

  38. Avatar Wednesday [PJ] ((LoA))

    Changed ma mind about which desk

  39. Avatar Wednesday [PJ] ((LoA))

    Bagse Desk #10!!!!

  40. Avatar Mr.Gabriel

    My part is done. That was fun.

  41. Avatar Gradual Uprising {LoA}

    go ahead. This is open to anything.
    Puberty, zits, popularity, skipping school, passing notes, day-dreaming, bullying, etc.

    Think about your eighth grade year

  42. Avatar Mr.Gabriel

    Interesting. Count me in.

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