Oops, sorry for that. I fixed it.
Just checking with @Cowgirl Jedi 1701, @BookExogorth, @brodiew and @Ewok Poet that everyone's seen TLJ so we can start delivering the stakes.
Two quick questions: what happens if neither bet/counter bet is right or if there wasn't an answer in TLJ?
@Lady_Misty In that case, both betters have to deliver the stakes.
*Neo* Whoa! *Neo* I better reacquaint myself with this.
Hey, @Chyntuck - I have it all covered already. @BookExogorth and I already talked about this and I have a vague idea about I'll write for her. If all goes well, I will deliver it by the end of the month.
Will the stories eventually be linked from this thread? And what happens with the open bets?
I promised a poem and a siggy link, but the muse hasn't been much for poetry lately. Maybe I'll have to get Darth Vader to motivate her.
Have to talk to BookEx about the siggy link.
Okie-dokie, everyone's checked in! So:
Rey wasn't revealed to be related to Obi-Wan in TLJ, so @Cowgirl Jedi 1701 owes @BookExogorth a week of advertising in her siggy and a poem (or whatever you two agree upon).
Kylo didn't return to the light in TLJ, but he also didn't cause the death of a major protagonist, so @brodiew and I both owe each other a fic-gift.
Leia didn't die in TLJ, so @Ewok Poet owes BookEx a fic-gift.
Please post the links to the fic-gifts when they're up, I'll index them in post #3.
(The open bets weren't taken up, so whether the person who placed them won or lost nobody owes anybody anything )
Oh, I was remembering this bet and thinking, "Oh how funny, Kylo did cause a major character death."
Hello, @Chyntuck! How do we determine each other's fic-gift. Are they related to the terms of the bet or do we communicate via PM?
@brodiew I was just opening a PM convo with you now
@BookExogorth Whose death do you have in mind? Because I'd say that many deaths are linked to Kylo (obviously, I mean, he's the villain, right?) but I find it difficult to argue that he *caused* a protagonist's death.
I was just thinking how funny it was that he was responsible for a major character death, just not a protagonist. Nothing really bet related.
Not sure whether to be excited or sad that no one did a counter bet with me since i am sure I would have to pay up since in my opinion it was left ambiguous.
i was looking forward to sharing.
Hello @Chyntuck! This thread shall Rise again! With the trailer and Title for Episode 9 being released today, it could required a fair amount of speculation and supposition as to who and or what that name in the Title is referring to. I know you have not been as present on the boards lately, but this could 'pull you back in'. I think it would be fun to put the betting pool back in action. Or adjust the challenge to simply writing speculation fics. I hope all is well with you and you come back soon.
A little story competition based on bad interpretations of the contents of the trailer could be fun.
I bet a week (or possibly more, depending on how lazy I am) of advertising your fic in my siggy, and a poem that Finn is
related to Lando
