Trifextra: Blaze of Glory

This weekend’s Trifextra is community-judged.

  • For the 12 hours following the close of the challenge, voting will be enabled on links.
  • Come back to this post to vote.
  • Voting is open to everyone.
  • Encourage your friends to vote for you, if you wish, but please don’t tell them to vote on a number.  The numbering of the posts changes regularly, as authors have the ability to delete their own links at any time.
  • Due to the limitations (our opinion) of our linking service, you are unable to vote on a post from the same device from which it was submitted.  You will have to find another way to vote for yourself, and we hope you do.
  • This week, in an attempt to break the massive ties that we have seen in the past, we are allowing you to vote on your top three favorite posts.
  • Yes, you really only have 12 hours to vote.  We’ll send out reminders on Twitter and Facebook.
For your prompt this week, we are giving you the first 33 words of a story. You need to complete it with 33 of your own words.

    • This was just the one…I thought of you, with your OAA discussion yesterday, and Hotspur…he hates his job. It’s almost the best day of the year…it was just meant to be.

  1. Cleverly done! I have various mental images of what he is finding so very un-cute! Have to know the characters better to tell whether obscene entered the scene …

    • Sometimes it is worth it to risk something like this, but most people don’t. It would be nice to know all the different fantasies that people are having with this.

  2. Thanks so much for linking up to Trifextra. Remember, this weekend’s entries are being judged by the Trifecta community, so I hope you were able to cast your votes. (There’s still just over two hours left if not!) Winners will be announced with the Monday post. Hope to see you back then.
