Group 1, drama, a sandstorm, nachos

CONNECTIONS
A mother and her infant daughter are alone on a long and difficult journey. How can they make a connection with all flights grounded in a storm?

I've been trying not to throw up for the last half hour. Discovered my cover page hadn't saved to the .PDF from Final Draft. I stayed calm, fixed it in under a minute, and the wifi glitched. For 4 minutes. The complete one went through late.

I've emailed an explanation and the right file, saved before deadline, as my backup, and added a question with details to the forum, but I'm not going to let myself hope. I'd rather be surprised good than bad.

I'll be posting her regardless, although it seems I'm the only one here in my group. Again. Lol.

We worked out there could be five different plungers ... according to the internet ... toilet, coffee, syringe, dynamite and someone who places a huge bet.

I went for a coffee plunger ...



Same! Even set it in Coffee Town (Seattle).

R3 Group 2

Fantasy, wishing well, banana bread

LAST WISHES

Deep into the Broken Lands, a noble dwarven knight is stalked by a selfish elven minister.  Both in search of the last wishing well, where it comes down to genuine need versus selfish desire.

...I can't tell you how much I hate doing loglines.
