He didn't come home Tuesday, and he didn't come home Wednesday, and he didn't come home Thursday. When the nice young policeman showed up on my doorstep Friday morning to tell me they'd found his body, my first reaction was, 'Well, at least he has a good excuse this time.'

I have no idea who these characters are. And with THAT as an introduction, I'm not sure I want to. *pokes the Muse warily with a long stick*

Also, every time I come across one of those Male/Female tickyboxes, I feel ... not angry. Not even excluded, really. More vaguely embarrassed that a tickybox has the power to make me lie to total strangers.

I want this story, k. Want. It. Sounds to me like pick a fandom and make it outsider pov, or it could be a smashing original fic. Either way? Want. It.

ION, it's not lying if the possible selections are rigged to further someone else's agenda ... kind of like those ridiculous reader polls on usatoday.com.

I would read a story that began that way!

Adding my, "I'd read that!" to the list. Because I'm already drawn in, with just those two sentences.

Excellent! All the encouragement's got me writing it.

Hell, that looks like a fascinating story. Original fiction, you think, or what? I'd think it could be an outside POV for HL or SPN easily.

ETA: For that matter, the nice young policeman could be from the 27th Precinct.

It's revealed itself as a Highlander story - I'm quite delighted!

I like that introduction. Come on, write it!

And those ticky boxes are so pointless. I ignore them whenever possible.

I'm on it - I've got the Muse cornered now, she's bound to give up the goods.
