Thanks so much for everyone's participation in last issue's Round Robin
. It's still ongoing, so anyone can participate. Rules are here
And on to the prompts of Issue #42 (The Alliterative Issue)!
1. A Song... Save the Hero
by Beyonce. Lyrics here
2. A Subject... We tend to write a lot of romance between our favorite characters. Let's face it...they're super hot together! But why not some friendship, or just day to day interactions? Hell, even pure animosity! The challenge is to write a completely NON-romantic piece between our favorite trio. Any length, any continuity, just no romance.
3. A sonnet...
"When in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes,
I all alone beweep my outcast state,
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,
And look upon myself and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featured like him, like him with friends possessed,
Desiring this man's art, and that man's scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least.
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate;
For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings."
-William Shakespeare( Additional InfoCollapse )
