Opening Lines Voting
Posted 09 December 2009 - 11:28 PM
Anyone going to actually write a little something from these hooks?
I'm still laughing about the "Silence is a virtue..." I don't think I can come up with something to follow it up. All I'm seeing is a murder mystery, but the comedic tone from that first line just doesn't go with the seriousness of rest of it.
BTW the ones you all didn't give any votes to are fanficish in nature. First one's with the sniper's shot would be a Sliders one and the other is obviously a 24 one though it would have been more of a comedy since Jack is riffing Airplane.
I'll have to think of something for the firing squad one because I really like the opening.

I don't think I could do justice in regards to the original author's intentions.
The only caveat to that would be to restrict it so that only one person can pick one line from one particular author, so that everyone doesn't go flocking to one person's lines and leave everyone else out (some wrote enough for everyone to take one, with a few left over). For, example, if Copper chose a line of Tank's, that closes him down so that no one else can pick a Tank line. So Copper picks Tank, then Tank picks SD, then SD picks Nixie, and so on, just for example.
