    Time flies, eh? As well, your scores are in the main thread where the entries are.

    Even moreso now that I have to read CE and I just got teh game too at the same time.

    But thanks for taking the time to critique our entries, Cros. I know it's time consuming but I just wanted you to know it's not going unnoticed. Now I gotta improve my game,

    Oh crap, I just picked the theme this month didn't I...and I just realized now I gotta think of something for Crash. (bangs head on desk)

    P.S. Since somebody asked, I could care less about a "prize" but that's just me. My rewards lie elsewhere.

    If anyone feels like judging instead of writing this month, please let me know. Still, don't feel as though you have to, since I -can- handle this myself should that be the case.

    Oh, hey, Jonesy, I don't suppose you could put another section in the FFC with links to each month of the assignment? Doesn't have to be now or anything, just a future idea. Don't want to lose these stories in the shuffle. :3

    That's a great idea. I'll get to work on it.

    I...
    ...I...I...

    ...I don't know what "Crash" means. At all. Not even in the slightest.

    It means you have to write something that deals with a "Crash". Mentally, physically, monetarily. Anything, as long as it involves crashing.

    You'll have in the next week. I need to concentrate on the noble art of "crashing a vehicle".

    As long as it pertains to the topic, it can be any kind of genre, Grub. I've an open mind.

    Also, while I admire your enthusiasm, wolf, make sure you take your time on it. You have until the end of the month, after all. I do recommend starting early, though, and working through the month on it. That goes for all of you :P

    Ah, ok then. I was considering a satire piece, but most look down on them because "Gears is serious business, no funnies allowed!". Ok, no one's said that, but I got the impression they would.

    "Crash"?

    .... alright, well off to attempt some sort of brainstorming.
    I'll check in every now and again but for the most part, I won't be as active as I was previously. It really was the Gears + people that got me posting on here in the first place. Unless Epic release an awesome game or something. I'm leaving this message because I'm obviously a very, very important person.

    Hope to see a lot of you on the BT Forums! - 11/02/2014 (lol)

    Currently still at notebook stage, I'm off work tomorrow, so might put fingers to keyboard and rattle out a few words then.

    Just posted. My fingers are crossed that I win. :P

    However, I am slightly pissed. I needed to say that my piece contained a Gears 3 spoiler, but if I edit that in, I'm disqualified. >_>

    So anyone who is going to read my entry, THERE IS GEARS 3 SPOILERS!

    I slept on it, and now I think I've got an idea to do!

    It came from an idea I had for a short fiction, which I may do some day. 0.0

    First two entries are graded and ready to be posted on Tuesday. Hoping for some more entries out of you guys, soon. Still got a few days; plenty of time to write something up.

    Submitted my entry.

    I don't think it's my best, as I did struggle with the theme. That, and I discovered a while back I'm a bit of a perfectionist. 0.0

    Like I said, it was actually based off an opening chapter for a short story I had planned. I also had another idea, which was also based of an idea for a short. Trouble is, I think they were both more "Character BSOD's" rather than crashes.

    Still, enough rambling from me, I tried!
