Mynoris, The Wordsmith
Allow me to play Angel's Advocate, if you will. I would play Devil's advocate, but he seems to be pretty popular in the world these days. Metaphorically, of course. A lot of people would say neither angles nor devils exist. Still, the phrase 'Devil's Advocate' is fairly well known. Yet it doesn't seem to quite cover the role I often play. And this is just me rambling. Yay.
A few song lyrics that really 'speak' to me:
And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
~ Iris - Goo Goo Dolls
But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be
~ Unwell - Matchbox 20
Your mother was cast aside by your father for certain 'unnatural' practices. Raised by your overly strict father, you always felt as though you didn't belong in the village, and the way the other villagers treated you didn't help. So, what are you going to do about it?
~December Contest prompt #34: The protagonist is the village whore. But she's also a witch!~
(This story sort of ran away with itself and I ran out of time, so I hope there's enough 'whore' and 'witch' in it to qualify.)
Men from over the sea are attacking your kingdom, and as a landed noble it is your duty to lead the men into battle that serve on your land in peacetime. This is the first war that has been waged in your land since before your father's time and you're not sure what to expect. Whatever happens, it is unlikely that your life will be the same afterwards.

I second this, but aren't all suggestions pretty much a lost cause at this point?

I don't see how that would be a good thing anyhow.

Would you say that no matter who entered though?

I guess this means I'll be hoping for WIBN.

I'm just as baffled as you are.

Yeah, you're right. I should just go back to bed. Not like I would vote anyhow, because I don't like to play favorites. ;)

Yeah, it's a bit hard to tell if this really is a comedy or if the narrator just has a sense of humor. :)

Question: Is this based on who we want to win as a person, or who we think has the best chance of winning?

I wish you all the best of luck; your skills will have to get you the rest of the way. ;)
The Witch, the Whore, and the Dullahan on 3/5/2018 2:03:58 PM
I have more faith in End than that.
But, I must admit, the whole scenario with the guy coming in claiming to see the Dullahan makes me think of the scene in Pete's Dragon where Lampy sings a whole song about seeing a dragon, even though no one believes him. But darker.
