I'm going to run through and summarise, trying not to gush at the loveliness bound within The Feardom:
- Ellie's victim comes with a sting in his tail, biting back at the courageous Tamara in Party of Souls.
- Rebecca's Bears in Summer roar through the mists of moonshine-come-good in this nostalgia trip. Whilst Cake slithers around our hungry mouths, moist and inticing us to eat.
- Asuqi gave another double delight, firstly with the wandering sickly sweetness of A Secret; and in complete contrast the snake man dangles his mistresses in the bizarro world that is Fake.
- AJ's Carpathia rescues more than just a Titanic victim; the grandaughter sheds a malificent burden in Come the Morning.
- My triple-generation death party has mothers and daughters clinging on in spiritual decadence, in Gone Girls.
- Aidan's two shysters are getting screwed when feral revenge blinks its glistening eyes in Party Foul.
- Mimi's Red Riding Hood of a grandmother sloughs her way through the party crowd in Talkin' About My Regeneration.
- Melenka's lost elder searches in spectral heat, nearly in vain until the babe cries with her eyes in Losing Her.
- Antonia's sorrow and loss pleads through Life Party, but comes with a warning.
- Chris's T'kalli winds her wily way through jungle darkness towards a hidden beast in To Avenge The Prey. With Easy Money his thieves take on more than they can chew when Tyler's Grandma lets rip.
- David has us fooled when a sneaky peak at a family party turns life on its head, in The Day I Found Out. In Boys Will Be Boys the classroom culprits bitch and compete, rascals in the making.
- Jenny Dreadful's party doll struts dismissive stuff before discarding her amuse geule; in her second untitled piece Jenny casts tremulous fingers towards loaded friendship.
- William's ghostly wraith weaves between her offspring, and theirs too. A family bereft in After The Plague.
Oh beJesus - what to do? So much talent. (Takes a quick gulp of buttery Chardonnay).
My winner - and judge of next week's Friday Prediction is... Rebecca Bohn with Bears in Summer. It's a Stephen King of a thing, wistful yet tinged with a potential malice. Wonderful writing. Congratulations Rebecca! I shall be in touch ;)
Runners-up this week are newcomer Jenny Dreadful for her first, vampiric entry because I just LOVE that attitude, and William Davoll. After the Plague has stayed with me all evening; desperate and ethereal. Well done both.
Well, I'm exhausted but excitable now. Can't imagine going to bed for a few hours (but I'm all talk).
Catch you in the morrow for another Prediction challenge. Toodleoo.
