Thanks for the link. I'll have a read through it as I get the chance today

Sorry, but I'm not familiar with the term 'breakout character'. You mean like a minor character who suddenly develops into a key aspect of a story?

Jinx's background can be found here:

The Empty Shell

I have a feedback thread on those forums too, but you would need an account to post there, so if you have any comments, please just PM them to me. Also, it isn't finished. I don't know how long it will be when it is, but if I'm going to be honest, it has barely gotten started

I hope you'll like it, but even if you don't, please let me know A breakout character is essentially a minor character who not only unexpectedly develops (not in terms of character growth in the story, but in terms of popularity with audience and writer) but they then become the main character in their own right (and often take the lead in other works) Thanks for the link, it was a very enjoyable read

Agreed. I like that so far, too, jinx. The only bad thing is that it now has me considering doing something similar for my characters.

i was looking forward to writing this one, but over all it seemed like i just couldn't get it working well enough. I had the concept since day one, but no matter what any thing i wrote just read poorly (which says something with how bad my entries usually are), so i'll be skipping out on this one. Also my main premise was close to some one else's (getting a person as a gift), so i figured it would be best to not post.

Mine was so last minute as an entry, I don't think anyone will read it. It's not that well done anyways.

That's a shame, as likewise, I was looking forward to reading your entry, but shall look forward to your future entries

It did come across as last minute, but hey, you can always make edits, and I'm sure the new challenge will be posted soon, so you can always contribute again

I'm not going to lie, this kind of gave me the push i needed to get off my butt and rewrite my story and post it. Thank you, and hopefully it isn't too bad of a read. I know it's a little later than it should be but i'm glad i was able to post after missing the previous challenge.

@ markusseikyo: An excellent read, thankyou for sharing My one suggestion, would be to have made an earlier reference to the tattoos, if it was to become such an end point
