Whoohoo! :Brain:

Thanks everyone, for voting for me and the others, we had a lot of great pieces. Congratulations to all of us for working hard k:

To give you all time to work on your next piece, I'll go ahead and post my chosen topic.

After much consideration... I wanted to choose something that would offer a flexible choice of tone, as well as various choice of subject.

Therefore the topic is: What We Desire

Please read the following carefully before starting on your piece:

You can write about any form of desire, be it innocent or sensual (as long as you keep it PG13). For example, the desire to be loved, the desire to create art, the desire to eat raspberry cheesecake. You can use any tone, humorous to dark. As long as your piece expresses strong desire for whatever is being desired, it's all good.

Do not post a piece about sex. This isn't physical desire, this is emotional desire. It's what your mind wants, not what your body wants. There are other forums for that sort of thing, I'm sure.

Congrats, tai.

Um, ok, I'll start.

This time a poem based on the world of Discworld

What a Wizard Wants

There is a wizard
by name of Rincewind
He is traveling with a tourist
Ahnk-Morporks first
even Discworlds first
they don't know what tourist means
Rincewind decided "idiot"
The two are on an adventure
They don't even know where they are going
But they are on an adventure
Twoflower desires to see new worlds
And new creatures
And new peoples
And what does Rincewind want??
He just wants to stay alive!!!!!!
And maybe pick up a chili dog along the way LOL
They travel through a forest
The sky
The mountains
And even off the edge of the world
Twoflower got his wish
Rincewind wonders if he will get his wish
Death hopes not

Congratulations, Tai! I'm glad you won.
Well, there's a "something" I wrote today. Not sure if there's a clear defined desire recognizeable in my text, though I tried to put it in. The inner voice is often hard to describe... Well, it is my second attempt at writing something at all, so I hope you'll be gentle. :angel:


The train is moving
To unknown destination
The time is running
And leaves the fates behind

The stars are flying in the sky
They have been always there
They are not caring
For our daily fights

The fights we're leading daily
For our own place in life
Like blisters on the river
We come and go again...

Some fall back and disappear
Some shine far ahead in time
But the warmth in every heart
So hard to find to ease the life

Look the stars above the sky
No more struggle, no more fight
See tomorrow, feel today
Say goodbye to yesterday

Feel no sorrow, feel no pain
Feel the action in the air
Just reaction, no more care
You and me, together free

@Fawful: Good job! k: It's a fun blend of seriousness and humor, and game related, so double kudos to you!

@FreeFreddy: Very good, I liked your description, although some of your metaphors confused me, probably a culture difference, though. For example: blisters on a river? I'm not sure what that is... Otherwise, well done k:

Thanks. But actually, Tai, the game is based on books. You should read them. My poem was based on the book Color of Magic. The books are written by Terry Pratchett. I love that series.
