I think I'm gonna sit this one out, Steve-san. I'm sorry, but I have so much shit to do, and I'm a little confused (or tired, either way), so I think I'll just observe.

So it's Chris' turn then.

We're really short on writers now guys. If you're interested, please sign up. You don't have to be a perfect writer or write a lot.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

You've got the ball, Steve!

And yes, I do agree. Someone else has to join the list soon.

Tell you what, I'll go next. I'm gonna be busy over the next few days so it probably won't be a lot, but I suppose it might help run things along.

That sounds so dark and forboding..."Jenny has until Tuesday night..."

Okay, it's up, and it's about as good as I can do at this time of year. Apologies for it's brevity and... well... the whole thing. If whoever's next decides they'd rather have it removed, I understand.

I vote that the above chapter be removed from the Round Robin...

... and into the files of the Nobel Prize Academy!

(Seriously, it's above top notch.)

I liked your part, Jenny. I think it fit well on there. The story needed some movement, and I think things might get quite interesting from now on.

We're going to have to start beating you, Jenny-san, if you don't begin realizing the greatness of your writing soon. [Prepares the Beating Stick of Self-Esteem and Honesty of One's Own Greatness]

By the way, how's the story going? Did it stop? Is anyone writing? I'm curious. I'm not sure if I'm ready to write more, but I had some plans with this.

Uh, gonna talk about it tomorrow.

I really don't feel like writing a followup for that part, and after me the list is empty.

If anyone has a plan to get Lisa out of that room, just go ahead.

I'd like to join the list again.

Oh, and welcome aboard, Rich. I look forward to reading more from you, because your chapter is very good.

Yup, it's a good chaper, and very well written. When I was in chat with Steve and the guys, we seemed to agree that it's a good time to Lisa go out to the street, you know. Also, somehow, Mr Burns should get into the story. Anyway, it was his fertiliser.....

I might want to join in eventually. Not sure, though... Oh, screw it. Put me on after Chris.
