One chapter behind

Challenge 23 & Banners

Hey everyone. Hope that you had a good weekend. This next challenge is going to be a full week, Sunday evening to Sunday evening. Hopefully we'll get a few more people involved. The points are as follows right now:

summerstwilight is leading the pack with 27 points.
heatherlayne_n has 14 points.

Remember, you can post as many stories as you want for each prompt, so don't think you can't catch up to these two. Again, the prize is for the first person to reach 100 points and it's a custom-made PotC-themed wallpaper. But, in all honesty, the points don't really matter. I'm just trying to boost participation. That's all. So, please write, even if you don't give a shit about points.

Special Thanks: I guess to my friends Joey and Donnie, who told a story of oranges and retrieval that was so outlandish as to inspire this one. Also to anyone who read this ^_^

What?! A challenge? No way...!

Hi, everyone. Until we get the prize list squared away, here's what I would like to do with the challenges I post and prizes:

1.) If you participate in the challenge and write a story, you get 10 points. You may submit as many stories as you would like as long as they are in accordance with the requirements and are in before the deadline. At the end of the challenge, I will make a post of where people stand, points-wise.

2.) I will offer bonus points TBD in each challenge for various things within the story, e.g., include: a sandbar, a doll, and a handshake; or for 50-cent words.

3.) First person to reach 100 points will receive a custom PotC wallpaper made by yours truly, featuring anyone you like (and I'm not above making naughty manips, either ;)).

4.) Everyone who submits will get a participation banner.

5.) Other than that, all rules apply.

Now, without further ado (adieu?), here is (a weekend speed challenge, as requested):

Happy writing!
