to everyone who submitted ideas for the Music Video contest. There were so many awesome ideas that we had a difficult time choosing. It came down to a team vote, and our winner is... (*drum roll*)
Kay Em Evans!
For the picture frame idea.
And now for the second Crusader Writing Challenge: parameters, 100 words (not including title).
That Kind of Day
The goldfish bowl teetered and crashed to the linoleum. Water coursed around my sneakers, orange bodies flopping helplessly through deadly shards.
A gun cocked.
“You can’t kill me.” I stepped around floundering bodies toward the wide-eyed man, hoping he wouldn’t try.
He looked down the barrel of his revolver. “Oh yeah?”
The gun fired.
A bullet smacked me between the eyes. Ouch.
“You can however seriously piss me off.” I speared him through with my scythe and lifted his squirming soul away. “Now I’m going to have to dig that thing out...! Say hello to your fishes, in Hell.”

This was brilliant! I want to know more, but it's also a story nicely contained in this short amount of words too :DReplyDelete
Awesome story! I love the twist at the end.ReplyDelete
Ha, super twist at the end, having Death lift the squirming soul away. :)ReplyDelete
LOL! Now I wasn't expecting that! Loved the descritpion of the flopping fish. :O)ReplyDelete
Oh! I was *not* expecting that. Neat!ReplyDelete
Ooh, I love a kick-ass MC!ReplyDelete
AWESOME! This may be one of my faves so far =)ReplyDelete
Well done. It is fascinating all the different ways people have of handling this challenge. Good work finding a new one.ReplyDelete
"Say hello to your fishes, in Hell"!! Love that line!ReplyDelete
LOL. Never mess with the grim reaper.ReplyDelete
Hey i love this take on the challenge. I want to read more and I see I can. Lovely!ReplyDelete
Thx for taking the time to read mine. Geez, yep, aren't women vindictive lol.
Ouch! Brilliant twist! When Death said "You can't kill me," he meant it!ReplyDelete
Intriguing and leaves us all wanting more.ReplyDelete
Very nice! IT's quite a challenge (and fun!) to get a little story done in 100 words!! Well done!ReplyDelete
Did like the story, didn't like the word "ouch" put it in death's dialog or cut it imo.ReplyDelete
Oh way cool. The fish bodies were a great tie in to death.ReplyDelete
shame the fish had to go to hell but possibly they were bad fish - great story - well doneReplyDelete
GREAT entry! Loved the dialog. It really brought humor and personality to the piece!ReplyDelete
I noticed I wasn't following you yet. So sorry! I keep thinking I've met all the Crusaders, and then I discover another wonderful blog. My oversight has been corrected!
Well that surprised me. Great twist, very dark. The squirming souls...reminds me of the souls in the movie "Ghost" as they are dragged away. Nice imagery.ReplyDelete
Great twist! Well done :)ReplyDelete
Gripping! I loved this story, and I like the humour of the grim reaper. Dark, but fun.ReplyDelete
I love the darkness of it. Nice job. I need to read more. :)ReplyDelete
Tough female there!ReplyDelete
Good job with one hundred words.
Great twist - and love the idea of fishy heaven and hell. Remind me not to ever take on a guy with a scythe who looks like - y'know, Death.ReplyDelete
Great job! I want to know more about this person that gets shot and doesn't even flinch!ReplyDelete
Ouch. <-- awesome. This was twisty and unexpected. I loved it.ReplyDelete
Great entry - very intense!ReplyDelete
NICE! Love the twist and Death's badass attitude!ReplyDelete
