You know the drill:
Step 1. Virtual folk choose different elements to be included in a story.
Step 2. After counting the votes, I let you know the results and…
Step 3. Hand it over to LB, who has agreed *with surprisingly little begging from yours truly* to set aside 2 weeks to write a short story incorporating your choices. This will then be posted on the blog for all to enjoy and marvel over. *G*

Just choose already! I’m telling you LB will be too busy
in the bar getting freebies being famous to get pissed with any of you until after the fact.
Seriously. Would I lie to you?
Oh mon dieux. You must have naked pics of these folks with farm animals to keep pulling these out of the hat. not that I'm going to complain. 🙂

2. a) first meeting
3. c) half-nekkid cowboy
4. d) who didn't buy the diet coke
5. b) a PA
6. a) a jock strap
Can't wait for the result.
You are so ebul to do this to our poor little LB! But good choices on the story!
ok – my choices:
2) a (what the hell's a cos player?)
3) a chubby friar
4) b (God she's gonna hate me for that one! lol)
Tam: *quickly closes file* Please. Would I really resort to blackmail??
Tracy: What the hell. Here I am giving you great choices and you choose 6 d)!
A cos player is someone who dresses up in the costumes of their fave characters in video games, anime, etc, etc.
How could I pass up tights??? I just couldn't!
Thanks for the explanation of the cos player. 🙂
I swear the little red hair freckled girl strikes again! LOL..Lovesit!
Ooh, you are evil! Hmm, such good things to choose from.
I'll go with:
Tracy, thanks for asking what a cos player was– I didn't know what the hell it was either.
You must have naked pics of these folks with farm animals to keep pulling these out of the hat.
Or something. How do you do it? Ohhhh, decisions 🙂
1. a) Eco adventure
2. d) Old friends
3) c) A half-nekkid cowboy (as if I could pick anything else!)
4. c) Pineapple
5. b) A PA
6. a) (Although I was tempted to pick d) just to be annoying 🙂
And thank you Tracy, because I didn't know what a cos player was either 🙂
Have you done any work this week?
A lovely young man has just brought me a coffee. MMMMmmm
You've got me perving, BAD Sissy!
Jenre – Dark Walker arrived – thank you so much! Yaoi as a novel. Interesting. It's next on my list 🙂
ok here goes:
Good luck to LB, whatever the results *g*
How can none of you know what a cos player is?? You all need ejumacating!
Tights = no (Bad Mumma!)
Jockstrap = YAY!
Nichem: Evil? *ponders* Yes, that fits. *GRIN*
Orannia: I am awesome, that's how. You are very VERY lucky that no d) was chosen during the length of your choosing.
Mumma: Hmpf! And, it's not me. It's THEM!
Orannia: No encouraging!
Suzi: Thanks for picking on, umm, I mean, playing with LB. I really liked your choice for 6. 🙂
Ingrid: Why do you think LB will need luck? The choices inspire creative work.
d) a convention;
c) one is a cos player;
b) a chubby friar;
b) is Russell Crowe too old to play Robin Hood?;
d) a My Little Pony tattoo;
a) a jock strap.
Come on, this story is all but writing itself 😛
I particularly like the My Little Pony tattoo…
I like to play 'if I was a fame-arse author what would I do with these picks' while coming up with the choices. There's lots of 'oh, I could do this', 'then this could happen' and 'but wouldn't this be fun if THAT was on the list of choices'. Good times. Hehehe.
“I” knew what a cos player was. Do I get a brownie point? 😀
The my little pony tattoo because I was just looking at horse tattoos (my kidlet the cowgirl) and I sent her one and said when she's older she should get THAT. Its like you read my mind. Or hacked into my computer. Hmmmm.
Hmm…And I thought you said you'd destroyed the negatives.
(but at least I know what a cos player is *hehe*).
So now for the fun of being the OTHER side of the exercise! Though I don't see many people following the same peverse path as mine…
And hey, that's a good idea – when are YOU going to have a go at this, Kris? LMAO
*pats Tam on head* Good girl. I'll do a cookie post or perhaps Sirk is ready to give her next installment… would that make you happy??
The My Little Pony tattoo?? Gee, I wonder who I 'stole' that idea from. Hehehe.
Clare: I have the negatives in a VERY safe place. *GRIN*
Are you suggesting that I should do this Clare?? Now where's the fun in that! 😉
I have to agree with Kris.
It is better to leave this to the profesionals *g*
*oh, thank fuck*
*nods sagely* Absolutely, Ingrid.
Good luck LB!
Orannia: That's great – hope you enjoy it :).
I don't understand why everyone insists on wishing LB good luck. This is FUN! You should be wishing her happy days, good fun, etc.
I said good luck to keep it positive but secretly I think condolences apply just as well
The problem is if you guys keep saying that how am I ever gonna con… vince any other suc-, err, authors to come play with us??
It's FUN, dammit!
It is fun for US. I am not sure if the writers feel the same way *g*
Clare said it was fun though because she had no restrictions. No editors/publishers telling her that stories about sandwiches wouldn't sell or that she couldn't use certain words. So lots of freedom within the boundaries of our wacky choices.
Tights = no (Bad Mumma!)
Jockstrap = YAY!
Ok – when you soooo obviously wanted us to choose jock strap how could I choose it I ask you? I needed to be the odd man out. Ok, your Mumma, Clare and I (good choice ladies!)
JOCK STRAP. Waaaa WhoooO!
Ha! Kris can't hide from LBster!
And she frothing at the mouth over the jock strap! lol
Ingrid & Tam: Sean, K Z and Clare ALL said it was fun. They enjoyed laughing with us at themselves. 😉
Tracy: Are you accusing me of trying to influence the choices?! I'm hurt.
Hiya LB , how is RWA??
I KNEW you would LURVE the jock strap choice. Jock huffing, baby, yeah.
Tracy: Shuddup! LB loves it. That was a shout for joy. 🙂
Sounds like fun — can't wait to see what L.B. does with this…
1.) The setting: D.) a convention. Otakon is this weekend, just for inspiration. I told a friend who will be wearing a Final Fantasy costume that he should look at the Final Fantasy pictures on the Bishonen Works website.
2.) Some background: Can I pick C and D? No? D, then.
3.) Another character: C.) A half-nekkid cowboy — because, you know, some of those anime characters wear cowboy hats, so convention-goers might, too.
4.) A conflict: Has to be D. Although it should be Mountain Dew, for greater accuracy.
5.) A piercing or tattoo: Out of those choices, C, a tongue piercing. But you could add a tattoo of indecipherable Japanese writing. Is it called “kanji”?
6.) An object to be mentioned: A, a jock strap. But it would be extra cool to have one hero wearing a jock strap and the other wearing fishnet stockings.
Emilie, who has this whole yaoi-otaku plotline in her head now
lol Shout for Joy or a Cry for Help. They're sooooo close! 🙂
Emilie: Welcome! And thanks for coming to play with us. 🙂
A yaoi-otaku plotline?? We are going to get on sooo well. 😉
BTW, yep, Kanji is one of the Japanese scripts and the most popular used for tattooing.
Tracy: It was definitely joy. I can't believe that you can't tell the difference. *g*
Oh, another opportunity to be MEAN…
1. c Sherwood forest
2. a it's their first meeting
3. d (a sexy South American tour guide in Sherwood forest – yes, pleaaaase!)
4. c (a pineapple in Sherwood forest as a conflict! can't wait to read that!)
5. d My Little Pony tattoo (although it WOULD look good on half nekkid cowboy… hmmm)
6. a (but it would be really nice to have all of them – that is 3 jockstraps on 3 different characters and a pair of tights on the fourth character)
1. eco tour
3. tour guide
4. wire snap AND Diet Coke
6. jock strap
Learned something new today cos player… interesting 🙂
1d, 2b, 3b, 4c, 5b, 6b
Holy crap, Matthew, I think you've been hanging around me too long. Your imagination has gone wild. LOL.
Jill: Thanks for helping me torture, LB. The more the merrier I say. 🙂
Lily: Not you too?!
Liade: Nice choice for #6. You can come play any time. 😉
