Default Challenge # 4 - How 'Real' Can You Make it? (original challenge)


Here is yet another challenge for you:

Create a reality show based upon a book.

(Yes, George Orwell's 1984 is out; Big Brother's already been taken. )

* * *
Challenges are primarily for fun. Members are certainly welcome to comment (and, in fact, here's where the "I love it!!" comment would come in), but in-depth critiques are not necessary.

Submissions should be made as new threads with 'Challenge #4' in your title. Example: Challenge #4 - Who Stole Your Wand?

Comments should be made in the respective threads. You do not have to participate in the challenge to comment and enjoy those pieces posted.

* * *
Good luck and have fun!

This is a fantastic challenge idea, Devon. I'm going to try this over the weekend. =D

You can thank QoW for this one. She's the one who thought it up! I just made the sticky thread.

Can't wait to see your entry, chloe.

Oh, I so want in on this one, but have to say I'm stumped for a good idea...

Go look at your bookshelves and pick a title at random. See what you can do with it. If it doesn't work. Try another. If you don't write something, awford, Devon and I will come down on you like a sieve full of floppy, wet lasagne noodles!

Haha, them's braves words from a pair that, so far, have yet to post anything themselves for this one! I see your sieve of noodles, cooked or otherwise, and raise you an industrial sized, restaurant-worthy trough. En garde!

Pah! My experience of waitroning in NYC has left me far too nimble for your pathetic parry. And I've seen rats bigger than your trough, matey! Touche, mon ami, touche! *runs off to bookshelf for inspiration hoping to think up something stunningly, amazingly, blindingly, magnificent*

Harrumph. I just ain't got the time recently.

(Actually I have something in mind, I just haven't had a chance to sit down and put it all together just yet.)

Touche, mon ami, touche!
I just got a vision of one of my favorite movie scenes ever:
"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."
(Parry, block, parry, thrust. Swordfighting ensues.)
"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."(louder)

"Stop saying that!"

"Offer me money."

"Yes."

"Power, offer me that too."

"All that I have and more. Please!"

"Offer me anything I ask for."

"Anything you want, yes."

"I want my father back you son-of-a-bitch!"
Don't worry, Devon. We have faith in you. *wink wink*

Oh, by the way, can I suggest we limit ourselves to fiction books? I'm certain something based on a biography of Nicola Tesla would be quite interesting, but...

Aha! I've chosen my book. And it is a fiction one, awford. Heh heh heh. This is going to be fun!

Hehe, I just about choked on a pickle when I saw your title, Queen. I'd been browsing around trying to find an appropriate story and stopped on that title several times and very nearly picked it myself.

Shhh, Devon, don't tell her, but it was my second choice for a reason... *evil grin*
