Okay, wife and I have run our genre analyses and our bets are laid in. I am so going to win this time!
Vic-k has dibs on shape-shifting aliens being hunted and eaten by cats then a final confrontation with "mom and dad" shape-shifter. You know he's a lock for this year....

Hey!!! That wasn't me, y' muffin-brain. That was Lunk, the Scandi knucklehead. He seem to be veering t'wards a Startreck-Star wars-Alien-Bladerunner amalgamation. He already inhabits his own Universe.

Probably goes late-night Wormhole cruising ... the guy's weird!

Lunk only started the "cat roams a building" part. I added the shape shifters. You had the parental confrontation. You own it now.

One of yoos two, had the cat, eating child/alien inhabitants of all the rooms, en route to the last room, wherein resides Mom&Dad Alien. I only pointed out the inescapable fact, that it had terrible potential for 'Mom&Dad slaughter kids in cat ... or, kids in cat slaughter Mom&Dad, scenario, but purely from the emotional and psychological perspective ... unlike yoos two sickos, all out for blood and gore :shock:

Not if the cat is now an alien-kid-cat , and Alien Mom is a cat lover. Could turn into a Intergalactic Easey Rider Road Trip Story

With this level of creativity I still hold that the last chapter is all yours.

I believe the gracious Ange would help us pin you down until you delivered!

How is the real boss doing these days? Been a while since we socialized publicly.

The real boss is, very, very, very, very busy, helping very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very busy, youngest daughter and son-in-law, move into their new house. It's been a hectic couple of months for them, but thankfully, they are at the stage where they can all sit back and enjoy the fruits of their endeavours. All the indications point to them being extremely happy there.
Fingers crossed :wink:

Congratulations on
1. raising child to resounding success
2. managing to NOT alienate the "not-your-child-in-law"
3. getting the real boss to abandon you for a bit.

someday I hope to demonstrate the same level of success.

Changing the subject slightly...
How do people feel about having expositional elements in their chapter briefs? I’ve tended to write off story ideas that have required any material level of exposition, but maybe I’m too sensitive?

Eh... If you have too, but part of the fun is reading the non-sense we've created with minimal input.

But I'm not the norm. Ever.

The same way I do now and the way we have done it in the past... we MAKE IT UP.

This is why Vic-k would be a NiaD God.
