OK, I've posted my most ungrammatical piece of writing ever in the public domain.  :) Hope it advances plot or something. There's Homer... and multiple exclamation marks and stuff.
Are you really gonna take it like that?
Riding on the missile with a cowboy hat?

Oh, well the world is gonna end
So dance around the fire that we once believed in
Oh, wanna tear it down again, now
'Cause there's nothing left for us to bleed
Give it up, the sons of anarchy
So come around and have another round on me!

DANCE, F***ER, DANCE, LET THE MOTHERF***ER BURN!

Yup, I guess it does advance the plot. I'll be taking it over from here. My part will be posted tomorrow. I would post it on Thursday if I could, but I'll be enjoying BEEEEEEEEEAAAAAACH...

... yeah.

I truly appreciate your feedback, Rich, I really do. My English is still on development stages, and such feedback really helps. If possible, I'll try to do some polishing in my chapters eventually.

Sorry about the extremely brief post. I completely forgot it was my turn.

BTW, the list is now empty again.

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

Well, I've added the new bit now. Anyone else want to have a go?

lol. I love the Hans Christian Andersen and Burns ones. Mmm, daughter wings...

And i never realised Chris had posted another bit (spot who's paying attention ::)) I reckon that's probably the best bit you've done, particulally Burns conversation with the reporter (less certain about Wysthan Chastelard, but he could work). But then again I've liked all of it so far...
...which is my way of prodding you all and saying I would love to see it keep on going. Though I guess since Uni/school has just restarted for lots of people it's bound to slow down a little. But anyway, I'll keep watching with great interest.

OK. I know. It wasn't very good, you can remove it if you want...

And DB, I wouldn't have introduced Wysthan if I hadn't got anything in mind for him.  :)

EDIT: Great new segment! The bit with Milhouse gave me a few laughs, and... well, cheers for bringing Lindsay Naegle into it. I almost feel personally flattered. Very true to life, somehow.

I think that's the opposite of what I said...

And yes, the new segment is great Rich. Lindsay guilt tripping Lisa about medical bills then appearing to be on her side with the special soap/telling skinner to get her a better chair was delightfully cynical. And Skinner and his newspapers had me in stitches

It's definitely a great bit, Rich. I'd like to go next.

Sorry, but I really don't feel like writing right now... not inspired at all. I'll have to forfiet my turn. Again.

Not setting a good example now am I?

Well, it's late, but since nobody else has asked to take over and I have a few spare hours, I've wrote the next part. Sorry I've not actually moved the story on much, mostly an introspective piece this.

right, i've decided to have a go at writing a bit of this. but as the least experienced writer here i'm really dubious as to whether I'll get a segment i'm happy with in three days, so don't hold your breaths  :-/

Don't worry about hurrying DB. Nobody's in the queue.
