Current I hoped to be able to roleplay during NaNoWriMo, but that failed. Replies will for December, and the next contest will be held then as well.

Bio

Hello everyone. I'm Dutch, a mother of a 7-year old boy and I love both rp-ing and writing. Since May 2020 I'm one of the contests mods.

I started with writing Dutch stories in 2002, I was already 19 at that time. I joined a writing competition and that got me started. Soon I started to write down all the stories my over-active imagination came up with. I had my first forum rp experience in 2003 on a Dutch fantasy forum. While I continued to write, I stopped rp-ing when the particular rp and forum slowly died. In 2011 my love for rp's rekindled when I joined a site with a forum and I started to RP solely in English since that is the language of the site. This is also when I wrote my first story in English.

I've got a few 1x1 rp's going on this site and a couple more an another site. I've always been a fan of writing competitions and I joined a lot several of the ones that were hosted on this website. Now I get to host them myself and really enjoy that too.

I have a bachelor degree in nutrition and dietetics and I have worked as a dietitian / kitchen administrator in a nursing home until I decided to quit to become a full-time mother + writer.

When you come here to check if I'm online, know that even when I show as online I might not be able to respond to RP's. I open this site so that when I have time I can spend some time here, but I don't always end up with the time to do so.

Andy going casually " 'sup dude" at the creator of everything XD
Benjamin turned to Sara when she asked her question about the green room, a friendly smile on his face. "Green room?" he repeated. "The only special rooms I've seen so far are the padded room they are keeping Ray in, a white room where we had light therapy, and that enclosed garden."

His smile faltered when he thought back to that garden. He really wanted to be outside again, but that small bit of outdoor was closed off. While he had considered it kind at the time they had let him in there, now he considered it cruel they had let him have a taste of that and then keep it out of his reach. A reward for good behaviour, just another ploy to get him to follow their rules and swallow their medication.

"What makes the green room special?" he asked.

"What a very unhuman thing to say," Chiyoko muttered to herself as she sauntered away, smiling as she did. But then again, the spider woman didn't look that much like a human. A recent change, she had heard. But an interesting woman for sure, she'd enjoy talking with Rose.
She left the room.




After Ethan and Harriet had settled, agent Barrow started driving and he and agent Morrison chatted amongst themselves. Ethan didn't really pay much attention to it and watched the city pass before his eyes.
He blinked when he thought he heard Gaia.
I want Ethan back. I want him safe.
Where had they taken her? He had asked Barrow and Morrison about it, but they weren't sure where Gaia was. It wasn't their department to lock creatures up to study them, their department was extermination. Girl, I'll figure out where they are keeping you, and I'll come and get you he thought to himself.

Harriet's voice pulled him out of his thoughts and he turned to her. "Mike and Ben? They were grabbing a movie last I heard. TKnowing them they'll go to bed straight after. They're fine. I'm meeting them at sunrise."
MF&P #6 - Hole





There once was a man named John Bello
Who had dimples a plenty, I tell you.
He fell in a hole,
but that was the goal.
For he was a golf ball sized fellow.

by @artexercise

In this round John Bello got the most votes, so that entry will be added to the hall of fame.

Congratulations!
Get your votes in! Voting deadline is in 13.5 hours.
The coughing and rolling made Michael sigh in relief, and he smiled a bit when Niccia grabbed his hand. He only glanced briefly at Fez before returning his attention to Niccia. "I'm sure you would have warned my if this was usual," he said, and he didn't sound upset about it. With Niccia seemingly getting better he wasn't angry, just worried this could happen again.

"We're about to find out," Dialga answered as he watched the events at the gate and waited for what Vatier had to say for himself.

Harcu frowned and was about to say he hadn't brought anything useful to the party since he hadn't expected there would be problems that required items to solve, when one of the humans and a Furret joined them.

"I've got a clean empty water bottle and a couple of potions we can empty if all you require is the bottle," Andy said. He had wandered in this direction, as he thought he could be of more use here than at the already crowded gate, and he wanted to give the couple a moment to themselves. He turned to Kim. "Will you..."
Even before he could finish his sentence, Kim nodded and with an Agility rushed to where Andy had dropped his backpack.

As Kim went for the backpack, Andy glanced in the direction of Michael and Niccia when Lecrero asked about her. "She's alive," he said to answer Lecrror's unfinished question. "Still hurt and I have no idea about internal damage, but alive at least."

Meanwhile, Kim reached the bagpack put it over her shoulders and rushed back to them, where she opened the bag and searched for a bottle to give to Kyio.

Ra watched Vatier change as he dropped to his knees. Children? Since when? Ra caught Luna's glance and shifted back into his human form.
"Your children are caught," he repeated. "How many do you have and who are they?"

    It would be nice if you could share why you voted for a specific work.
  • Giving feedback is optional but highly encouraged. When giving feedback you should be respectful and constructive. It’s good to point out any flaws or the things you feel could be improved or why you didn't like something, but don’t be mean.
    Make sure to point out what you liked or what appreciated in the entry too.
  • Contestants may (and are encouraged to) vote and/or give feedback for the other entries but shouldn’t vote for their own entry. If contestants wish to withhold a vote and only give feedback, that is good too.
  • The entries are anonymous unless the writer asked for having their name added. That being said, writers may claim their work at any time during or after the voting period.
  • The entry with the most votes will win, but in case of a tie a Contest Mod will cast the tie-breaker vote.
  • You can vote for entries and post your feedback in this thread, but if you rather have your vote and/or feedback be anonymous you can PM it to @Calle.
