Week 83 Game
roll the dice

This week's board is made by somigliana, the prompts are from benebu, and the dice is made by rea_saint.

This board is also posted on Dreamwidth. You may play on either site.

The goal of Writing Game is not to make multiple rounds around the board, but to accumulate as many points as possible.

You may switch fandoms/worlds whenever you first pass 20 points, 40, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 105, 110, 115, 120, then free for all.
e.g. Total points: 19. Complete a +3 prompt.
This brings you to 22 points. At this point you may switch fandoms/worlds.

All the general rules can be found in the user profile. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Timothy Mo's An Insular Possession table +2 Each
no longer possible to tell whether it is love or contempt which unites uncertainty is a kind of freedom There is a Cape Horn of the mind, too
Well, matters, I allow, may only look up, we are so low, and that's a fact He died of a broken heart. Of what else? I should always betray a principle for a friend
every man a brother and none a friend The seven years between nineteen and twenty-six are, it may be seen, long ones a sense of physical emptiness; fortunate and strange
How we may wonder at our earlier self now becomes then the price for turning a blind eye is now subject to review and increase
the distinction between meum et tuum a damn carefree, disloyal sort of a dog tea as drunk in London

prompt: dab +2
pairing: Dakota Fanning/Kristen Stewart
word count: 145


"You're sweating," Dakota says, and Kristen grimaces, gestures at the make-up person, who rushes over, dabbing at her neck and face.

"Fucking leather," she says, and Dakota nods.

"It looks good, though," she says. "It looks good on you."


Dakota turns away, trying not to look at Kristen's thighs, sideways glances behind her, casual, checking out Kristen's ass, the way the leather skims and clings like something alive.

She imagines peeling off those pants, the sweat beneath them, licking her way up Kristen's legs, starting at her calves, slow, wet kisses that linger, tasting of salt and skin.

Higher and higher, deliberate, thorough, because there's time. They've got all the time in the world.

"What are you thinking?" says Kristen.

"I wish they'd hurry up," Dakota answers. "The lighting guys."

Kristen sighs. "I hope we can get started soon."

"Yeah," says Dakota. "Me too."

Total points: 0
Prompt: Bond, +2

Characters: Skipper, Kowalski, Team, King Julien, Maurice
Wordcount: 150
Note: Set after Time Out

Something's Not Right

Skipper couldn't quite put a flipper on it, but there was something fishy to this situation, there surely was. Maurice was mixing a smoothie for King Julien; and his men were enjoying a bit of quiet downtime. Even Kowalski was there, placidly chewing gum, waiting for his drink to cool. Wait... what!?

Transfixed, Skipper saw Kowalski discretely spit out his gum into the wrapper, then look pointedly at Julien until the King produced a piece of paper and proceeded to dispose of his sweet in a Kowalski-approved manner. The ensuing nod didn't go unnoticed.

“Kowalski!” Skipper called. “Remind me again, how long exactly did you and King Julien spend in that time loop of yours?”

Immediately Skipper found himself the sole focus of the scientist's attention. “Oh please, Skipper. Do you really want me to explain once more that there is no duration to a time loop?”

Indeed not.
