I wonder at this point if it's possible that Michael could reset the game two turns? Technically, all that would need to happen is we determine where everyone was on George's turn and hopefully Michael kept the image from that one.

I will say that I wasn't thrilled with The Boy's choice of where the story went (and, if I had my way, we wouldn't have gone down that route) but he did appear to work hard on it and Alffy was just building off what The Boy did.

It's kind of one of those things. Do we ask them both to do another story in its place or just keep it and finish up?

P.S. I'm pretty sure DeSean Quinn was also killed in Alffy's section and, to be honest, if you were going to kill me, just let the Imps do it. Otherwise, I went out like a complete pussy. =)

Just read over my part and I can see why Michael thinks I broke the rules...again.  I should have stated that DeSean was dead and that Jenna, despite slumping, was still breathing.

Hmm, I'll hold off writing anything for now as there seems to be a little confusion and wait for Michael to decide. I also think we should reset the turn back if Alf and Boy Who Could Fly don't mind?

I'm on the fence about going back and getting Jordan to write his again.  Surely we have to accept what the previous writer does and continue?

Just to state again, I did kill off DeSean and not Jenna.

Well, it's all a matter of the game and the rules. We set up a scenario and some rules to follow while writing just like playing Monopoly. If someone goes outside the rules down their own path, that would be like them getting annoyed with the length of the Monopoly game, taking all your money money and properties and declaring himself the winner. Dungeons & Dragons is probably a better comparison here, where you have a dungeon master with a scenario that all the players have to follow. Unless the rules of the game state that you can carry a bazooka, my orc is not allowed to kill your elf with one, even if I can produce the reasoning that he would even have one.

A satanic uprising in the midst of a science fiction story (without some sort of pre-established reasoning within the framework of the story) is grossly illogical. Science Fiction stories have gone down the road of demons, yes, but they always do so within the narrative and it always makes sense...ok, mostly makes sense. Suffice to say, it never catches you off guard.

And I hate you for it. However, I knew whoever wrote after The Boy was going to be the one to do it. Lol. =)

Actually I had no choice as DeSean was the only character on their own so his number was up. Sorry.

Actually, there were three people by themselves, but I understand what you mean. =)

I'm just trying to figure out in my head how, if we're able to, kill this monster demon thing. I see that as being quite the challenge... Where's that damn Deus Ex Machina when we need it?

I would have preferred sticking within the established genre, but I'm flexible and will write to just about anything. A good lesson here, though, that one should never switch genres mid-story. You can combine genres, but that has to be established at the start to set up proper expectations of where the story will lead.

Ok.  If alffy says DeSean is dead and not Jenna then that means it's Blonde's turn (sorry again, nawazm11).  Franklin, I think, is the only character alone.    I'm up for a minute in the middle of the night here - so I'll update this when I get up it the morning.    Please make it very clear when a character is dead, thanks.

I just added a few lines to my post so it is clear who is dead and who isn't.  Apologies for the confusion.

Guys,

No reason to reset. If you want sci fi, have Franklin (he's slated for killing this coming episode) destroy whatever you want to change.

That's right. It's actually a dreaded dream sequence where a series of accidents have actually killed some people while the person slept. Or maybe someone is on an acid trip and THOUGHT they saw the demonic stuff. You never know with sci-fi, apparently.

We'll see what I can come up with, but I'm not feeling nearly as confident about this entry as my last one.
