Would you mind reposting this in the other thread for posterity?[MENTION=67]Rune[/MENTION]: My Round 1 entry is up and ready for judgment.
[SBLOCK=My post-writing thoughts--no judges allowed!]With so many time-related ingredients, my first instinct was to write a time-travel adventure, or some kind of modern adventure in a corporate bureaucracy setting. I decided to go with planar travel instead, and embraced one of the oldest bureaucracies I could think of--religion!
But whatever. The real challenge wasn't the ingredients; it was that 750 word count limit. Brutal. I had to cut away so much exposition...super-important stuff too, like the background info that ties the Bible passage I quoted to the demon, and the reason why the demon was holding the soul of that character. (The gist of it was that no raise dead spells work anymore because Beezelbub had been released.) Alas, it's all on the cutting room floor now.
Ah well. Win or lose, this non-Catholic writer learned a bit about Purgatory and the medieval church.[/SBLOCK]
