Judges (crits):Bad SeafoodBrawl Archivist: kaishai
I'm sure you're all familiar with the phrase "A man for all seasons." I'd like to see such a man (or woman) in a relationship through the seasons; spring, summer, autumn, winter. You can be as literal or figurative as you like, start wherever you like, but I expect a complete circuit through all four. The relationship is also up to you, be it family or friends or lovers or enemies.
Since this is a "Pretty prose" brawl, it goes without saying that style trumps substance, though don't think to yourself you can leave the latter out altogether. I want you to stir my emotions and capture my imagination, play to my senses and paint pictures on the backs of my eyelids.
EDIT: For clarification, Wikipedia defines a man for all seasons as "One who remains true to himself and his beliefs while adapting to all circumstances and times, despite external pressure or influence." It should go without saying your protagonist should reflect this.
