The Goonies had seen it all over the years: a pirate ship, a disfigured giant, an octopus that looked so fake it was cut from the movie…

However, the Goon Docks weren’t safe. Troy, that rich jackass who molested Andie in her car, had been shredded the night before, and Chunk was pretty sure he knew why.

“You guys. I’ve seen this before. My uncle is half-werewolf, so he doesn’t actually kill anyone, he just becomes a really good cook during a full moon because his sense of smell is so -”

“Whatever, Mouth,” Brand said. “I’m sure it isn’t werewolves. There’s always a logical explanation.”

“I don’t know, Brand, look at this…”

Mikey produced the daily paper, which showed how the Fratellis had apparently bent their prison bars and left a trail of blood on the way out.

“Oh no! Not the Fratellis. Not the Fratellis! Not the Fratellis…” Andie stammered.

But it was, because there are three Fratellis, and three wolves, so I honestly had no choice.

IT IS DAY

There are three wolves, as well as a seer and an angel. SEVEN is a majority. I’ll be working for the bulk of the day, so I’ll let you know when I leave and you’ll need someone to keep track of voting.

Sign in, please.

I played the Werewolf championships this week and wowie wow, did things ever go south in a hurry on day two. I’m being overly-cautious with the rules of speaking openly about it, but I’ll perhaps give a rundown after the game is complete.

Anyway, we’ll start the day after Memorial Day. I’ll probably mod, but we’ll talk. While I assume all those who wanted in last month will want in now, it’s been long enough that I’ll just open it up with no player list yet.

Your final four contestants:

Joshua Longman
Christina Pepper
Brendan Bonham
Margaret Martin

There. You’re now sitting boy/girl/boy/girl. Here’s your topic, pulled from the finals of the first competition I ran here.

Your entire story must take place in one room. Other places can be mentioned, but the camera, as it were, never leaves the one room. There are four to six characters that are stuck in this room, and they know they are stuck. They don’t have to know in the first paragraph, but at some point they realize they are stuck. 

Word Limit: 2,000

Due Date: June 1st, 8:00 pm

That’s 68 notches if my math is correct.

Hey guys. Melissa and her boy could use some help.

Ladies and gentlemen, your quarterfinal contestants:

Sama Smith
Christina Pepper
Margaret Martin
Brendan Bonham
Melissa Diamond
Kelly Wells

Three of you will advance to the semifinals and try to oust Joshua.

Your challenge is another twist on a final challenge created by Brooks. His was called 34 notches. But because 34 isn’t my favorite number, this challenge is going to be called…

17 Notches

Your story surrounds a room that has a doorframe with 17 notches in it. The rest is up to you.

Word Limit: 2,000

Deadline: Sunday at 2 pm

Christina Pepper played this challenge when it was first run and won it. I’ll make sure to check she doesn’t copy/paste her first story.

So after conferring with the judges it appears nobody really followed the prompt this week. Some of you because you didn’t have a character interview anybody. Some of you because you didn’t write anything resembling a piece for a newspaper, blog, et cetera. And one of you because there was only a passing mention to something being changed by time travel. Brooks would be damned proud that’s for sure.

The good thing is that we got five pretty good stories.

Welcome honored guests. And Kelly. I’m excited to see what you guys can bring in the playoffs.

As a reminder, the five players writing this week are Brendan, Annette, Bret, Melissa, and Kelly. The four judges will award one gold, one silver, and one bronze each. The top three scores will advance to the quarterfinals. If there is a tie for third place, there will be a quick Fiction 59 write-off.

DEADLINE: Sunday at 12:00 noon central

We’re going all the way back to Survivor VII for this challenge, written by Brooks. We need to rework it a bit for it to make sense for our purposes, but here we go.

Today is the day that the time machine returns from its journey. You have been offered the chance to interview the intrepid time-traveler and write a piece for your website/magazine/newspaper/personal diary.

Write a story that details the time-traveling journey, and any interesting events experienced either on the journey or once the past/future destination was reached.

Something in the present has been changed by the actions of the traveler (anything goes, from large scale to seemingly unimportant changes). Whether the assembled multitudes are aware of the change is left up the writer.

Word Limit: 2,000

This is the last post of Survivor XIX. I want to thank everyone for playing. A special thanks goes to the wonderful Survivor champion Christina Pepper for creating one of our new challenges and helping me decide on a few of the other ones. I also want to thank in particular Christina, Melissa, Pete, and Kelly for putting up with me ranting and complaining about the way this game was going on one or more occasions.

You already know the identities of all the pre-merge players. After the jump I will reveal the true identities of the jurors along with their votes for the winner.
