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.
