GRUEBERFEST ROUND 2 MATCHUPS

Submitted by Ducky at 2010-10-12 03:20:52 EDT
Rating: 0.98 on 68 ratings (68 reviews) (Review this item) (V)

Fallen friends and foes have been cleared aside, their bodies cooling in the autumn air. One…the one who fell hardest, will rise from the dead yet again to join her combatants in gun and hellfire during round two.

Victors, ready yourself for the next, grisly combat. Strap those metal things to your horses legs, hop on, and swing something heavy at someone. Mortal blows are boss.

ROUND TWO: Submissions due by the end of Sunday Oct. 17th. Cutoffs for rating will be Monday the 18th at midnight, and then the grid will be updated.

GOOD LUCK 

Skrapmetal vs. Brdn_Nkd

SilvrWolf vs. TuTs

Hornet vs. orphelia

RoadSong vs. august_sobriqet

***Due to forfeits on both Soyware and whiskey_jack's parts, I have brought back the loser from Round 1 with the highest rating to participate in Round 2, if she wishes.

I tried to attach this as a jpeg and a png file and nothing. I'm sorry it's not fancier.

You lot deserve more.

yes, I afraid that taking time away from the essential things with which I am otherwise occupied wouldn't be prudent. idle hands you know...but hey you never know. I am good at creepy, it seems. If I had won and got through, then I'd feel more pressed. good excuse huh?

Tuts, you'd better not forfeit. I demand competition! My entry this round won't be 3500 words of plot holes and contradictory dialogue, I assure you, so bring the A-game I KNOW you're capable of bringing.

There are no posts with attachments posted yet today. Perhaps I will try to post just a regular post with a photo and see what happens.

My entry must have the photographic evidence attached. I need to get this OUT of my computer-head-life before something happens to me.

One of the only things I've enjoyed about teaching highschool rather than little kiddies is the massive reduction of tattling. Everything else is more difficult.

So what, now you're trying to laugh off what happened, acting like I was in on it?

I showed Ducky the page you found, the source of the story. She knows you stole it, and we all know you spent god knows how long looking for it.

Dude, you're obsessed with a dude.

Or ask for proof in an internet competition.

What's even sillier is that you take McCallum at face value without offering any proof. Ask him to prove it or as far as I'm concerned he put a blurb in front of my writing saying how I stole it, changed a few lines, and made it his "original" piece.
