That's right. Now I have one.

Oh, but I'm not the type to enter the fray unarmed. This is different.

My contest involves a site called http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Tropes.

A tv trope is defined as "storytelling devices and conventions that a writer can reasonably rely on as being present in the audience members' minds and expectations."

Feel free to look up your favorite tv show, or even movie, on there to get a feel for what I mean.

Now, specifically, I'm going to be using http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/storygen.php feature. The Story Idea Generator.

Directions:

1. After getting a feel for the site's purpose, click on the link above.

2. You will be given a trope to give guidelines/outlines to the Setting, Plot, Hero, Villain, and A Character As Device (look up there). You will also be given a Narrative Device, and a Characterization Device that must be used at some point.

3. You must make a two-part story with these tropes as criteria. When I say two part, I mean this. You make the first part the 'Pilot' of your story. Then the second part will resolve the plot given to you. (That last part may change, as it might be fun to leave it open.)

4. Post your tropes here, with links. Out of fairness, you may refresh the page once if you don't like the story handed to you.

No real word limit, but the object is to win, mind you.

Any questions?

BASS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN SILLY ADMIN CONTEST.

And maybe the FPL.

I accidentally locked myself in my bathroom.

I have to stick a long clotheshanger under the door, and slide it to my computer, in order to write anything. Now, send me help!
