@Cole Matthews Hmm... Tricky one to say yes or no to. Barmback loaf is actually a bread, though a lot of people call it 'Halloween Cake', and the actual cake tradition in the US is based on that Irish barmback. And a ring for good luck in love or a thimble for bad luck in love are both items, so either answer would work. Your twist: You must include a romantic proposal that has a dramatic outcome after someone bites into a metal keepsake Since your answer isn't exactly 'wrong' I won't impose the penalty for getting the answer wrong and make the response a negative. That's your call. :)

Hmm! So what’s the right answer? I’ll take the penalty.

Have fun writing but remember, everyone, there's no limit on the size of your first story. If you only have time to write a flash fiction scene, that's OK!! You do not have to write a full story unless you are inspired to write a full story. I just don't want authors choosing to do ton of different flash fiction scenes for the challenge because then I'd spend all month having to come up with trivia questions, answers, and twists, lol. Have mercy on me! 

 

What is flash fiction?

. What is the name of the famous hit TV series staring Sarah Michelle Gellar about a teenage vampire slayer?

Buffy, The Vampire Slayer.

 

By the way so many easy questions. Almost did Hocus Pocus, but couldn't resist the Scoobies with Buffy.

Yes, yes, I wasn't trying to make them hard! I was hoping most people wouldn't even have to pull out their google-fu to manage to play. :P and btw...

 

@comicfan: Correct! Your twist is to include a character named "Barb" with all the sarcasm, evil, annoyance, and yet secret occasional bumbling on the side of good traits of the TV series character, Spike. Oh, and the slicked-back blond hair with the widow's peak is a total cliched must as well! 

 

(Hee hee, you probably thought your extra theme prompt might be something cool and fun, like a vampire twist or demons or a high school cheerleader-y theme... oh no, not for you. You get a version of Spike, the vampire everyone is annoyed and wants to stake just to shut him up and make him go away. That's what you get for saying it's easy! :P

Ah, but Spike got a soul and loved Buffy. Lol. I can work with Barb. At least it wasn't Angelus. Lol

@Starrynight22 Correct!! Your twist: You must include a character that never sleeps and has red eyes. 

 

And I'm so sorry you didn't get your prompt in a timely fashion! I saw your second post and not the first one, completely missing that you'd answered a question! I hope you can still finish the story or flash fiction scene. Please let me know if you need some extra time at the end of the month, and I can grant you an extension since you were held up several days due to my mistake.
