ANIMALIA: Black metal group Animalia has a treat for the crowds at the High Valley Music Festival.

It took everything in me not to add the line "And that treat is ... ::pause; whips off sunglasses:: ... DEATH!"
 
I almost did a very similar thing, almost ended my synopsis with "when the venue is... to DIE for!"
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Who watches the watchmen? Me. I watch him.

Group 4: mystery/a vegetable garden/a feather

The Trial of Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit has many reasons to hate Mr. McGregor, but he wouldn't go so far as to murder him, would he? In order to set her brother free, Mopsy must find the true killer lurking in the garden.


I'm in Group 4 ... I thought about KILLING Peter Rabbit in mine!


Ha! Poor Peter. This idea popped in my head immediately after reading the prompts, so I almost didn't write it figuring using Peter Rabbit might be a common way to go considering the setting. But the idea wouldn't leave me alone, so I went with it anyway.

I didn't post my round 1 story because I didn't have time to critique and felt bad about putting mine out there when I wouldn't be able to return feedback. I wasn't going to post this one either for the same reason, but with so many people saying they want to read it (thanks y'all, at least I know I wrote an intriguing synopsis Big smile), I might post it anyway. 


I think it is hysterical you wrote about Peter, but for another reason - 

Tops is in your group, and at first she couldn't think of what to write about.  I told her she should write about Peter Rabbit!  The difference in stories came in was that the mystery was that Peter's mother didn't know why Peter's eyes were always red and why he was always laughing inappropriately, etc.  Come to find out, Peter was no  longer stealing veggies but hanging out in ye old mary jane garden - LOL!  But momma rabbit had to solve the mystery.  

Tops decided to go a different route.

They seek him here, they seek him there, those damned writers seek him everywhere.
Is he in heaven or is he in hell, that damned elusive Scarlet Screenwriter! (Oh, phuck, that doesn't even rhyme!)
