Hello, Thunderdome! This can be a busy and stressful time for everybody, so let’s keep things short and simple this week:

I would like to read stories about characters taking risks. These can be huge, death-defying stunts, or fragile moments of emotional honesty; anything that takes your character out of their comfort zone and forces them to take some action that could change everything.

That said, I don’t want anybody to feel like they’re taking risks writing a story, so this is another negative-mention-free week.

Flashes on request. In the spirit of risk-taking, I’ll also offer Hellrules for a :toxx:

Base word-count is 800 words.

For those of you who haven’t entered recently, I’ll offer an extra 25 words for each week since you last entered TD, to a max 2100 (or a year’s worth of no-shows).

If you haven’t entered TD before, feel free to take 2100 words, though I’d suggest aiming for 1200 words max for your first story.

Finally, I’ll take a risk of my own — I’ll allow erotica and fan-fiction, but not concurrently. Poetry and politics are still off the table.

No sign-up deadlines, but I’ll stop giving flashes or Hellrules after Friday 11:59PM PST.
