Stories I Never Wrote

On Tumblr a writing exercise meme has been making rounds. The rules are simple: "Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and five sentences from that story." Of course, line limits are usually damned, and nobody minds.

Author's Note:

On Tumblr, a writing exercise meme has been making rounds among fanfic writers, and I decided it was high time to bring it here.  These are the rules:

Tell me about a story I haven’t written, and I’ll give you between one and five sentences from that story.

This has been a great and fun exercise because, in essence, you're pretending that you've already written the story in question, and you're just pulling a short scene out of it.

So here are the adjusted rules for Protagonize:

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and five sentences from that story... Athough I reserve the right to write more if I feel so inspired.

Then I'll tell you about three other stories that you haven't written yet, and I hope you'll return the favor.

I'll start things off.  Everyone else on Protagonize is welcome to join in.

And most importantly of all, HAVE FUN!

The End
