While we continue to swap things back and fourth, here's the next one for you. Don't forget this round we're throwing everyone we know and love right out the window...

Setting: I'll give you the same - Anywhere, anything you like, as long as it has nothing to do with anything you've previously written.
Colours: Blue and Yellow
Characters: well-worn cowboy/dentist
Event: pain, the more the better
Starting Sentence: It was too damn hot for this...

Now, *rubs hands together*, for you're closing paragraph I want to see 'where is that dog?'. 

Good luck, I know I need some!!

When my first thought is 'FUN! Now what can I do to write this so it isn't anything like what you'd think it would be...', I don't think I need help, just sanity.

That's so random. I freaking love it. *squeals at the randomness*

You should know, there's a part of me that's going 'dentist + cowboy = Doc Holiday'. But really? Pity the dog, I think!

*rubs hands together in glee and toddles off to wash off the dust from work ... and figure out how to make a plot out of this...*

From: [identity profile] theskimblishone.livejournal.com

I've got a thousand words roughed out about the dentist's character already, although most of that's probably going to get cut later. *grins*

I wonder, does cowboy/dentist mean what I think it does...?

From: [identity profile] theskimblishone.livejournal.com

It's good you're not complaining, because it might end up that way. Might not, but we'll see... ;)

From: [identity profile] theskimblishone.livejournal.com

I know! *snickers*

The two characters have been unfolding a fair bit in my mind, yesterday evening/today. I don't think this is going to be short, and I think there's a fair chance there could be - erm - sequel stories. *facepalms* I think you'll appreciate what I've been thinking up, though.

I swear, you've given me just enough information (and that my brain has drawn all sorts of odd connections from it) that I'm getting to the point where I could nearly create a whole new world - not really the point of the exercise, but it's so different to anything I've done before...

I told you, I don't need luck, I need help of the professional kind! ;)

(BTW, everyone at work thinks I'm an absolute geek for doing this for fun...)

LOL at your geekyness, the suspense is starting to kill me, I really want to know what you're coming up with over there!

From: [identity profile] lilgryphon.livejournal.com

I had no doubt that you wouldn't take the easy way out of this one, because, well, that'd be too easy. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

From: [identity profile] theskimblishone.livejournal.com

Well, yes. The bleeding obvious would be a cowboy's root canal gone terribly wrong by a dentist wearing a blue and yellow beanie in an surgery with a broken air conditioning system, with the cowboy's dog tied up out the front...

(Hey, do I get a prize for the shortest possible challenge entry here?)

What I'm actually doing, however, is researching just a little bit on pain medication and dentistry in the 1800s. You're going to regret the words 'the more the better' by the time I'm done - but again, still not in the way you think...

I might have to ask for an extension, though. Next week we're shipping new stock to stores, so there's going to be lots of overtime and not much writing time. Our pick release officer is already tormenting us with how busy next week's going to be... *makes face*

From: [identity profile] lilgryphon.livejournal.com

Take all the time you need, it'll be worth the wait. I still have no idea what I'm going to do for your challenge...

From: [identity profile] theskimblishone.livejournal.com

Oh, I swear to you, it will be worth the wait! I still want to get this done as quickly as I can (that's pushing me to finish shorter stories, still something I so need to work on) because I have the ideas ... and because I know you're going to love this!

LOL, however long it takes you to come up with something good, I don't mind! It's always worth the waiting as far as I'm concerned!

From: [identity profile] lilgryphon.livejournal.com

Yeah, things are still going a bit slowly over here, however I have gotten started at least!
