    So this idea came to me a couple weeks ago. There are a LOT of awesome lines and quotes by Shakespeare, so why not pick out some good ones and hold a Roulette Challenge?

    This will work like a lot of the other Roulettes out there. Below, I have numbers from 1-100. All you do is pick the available number that you would like, and I'll PM you your quote. You write a fic about it, and post a link to it here. Simple, huh? I hope so, anyway. :) I tried to stay away from the easy, "O Romeo, wherefore art thou, Romeo?" type quotes in favor of random ones from all of his plays. It was rather fun to choose them.

    So here are the rules, in the order of importance:

    1) Have fun!

    2) You do NOT have to use the quote in your story. If it's feasible to use it, then have at it. I say this because I know there will likely be quotes that cannot fit in the "Oooh! I can work this into my story!" thing. As long as you say what your quote is before your story starts, that's fine. (I hope that made sense. I'm blanking on words this morning. :B )

    3) Deadline: I'm gonna give a pretty generous deadline, as I know people have lives outside of writing. I'll give until the end of April to finish your stories and link to them here.

    Since everyone knows what a pain Shakespeare can be to read, [link=http://www.william-shakespeare.info/william-shakespeare-dictionary.htm]here[/link] is a great Dictionary you can use to help you decipher your quotes.

    Any questions? Either PM me or leave a post here.

    That middle space looks so lonely . . . . But do I really want to do this? Especially given that I just finished using a sonnet by said Bard for the Ultimate Poetry Challenge? [face_thinking]

    Actually, yeah. I really do. Numero 34, por favor?

    EDIT: Whoops, numbers in wrong order

    All right. With one exception, everyone who has chosen a number up to this point has been added to the list and PM'ed their quote. If you're up there, and you haven't received either a quote or a PM from me kindly asking you to try picking a different number, then don't hesitate to PM me and let me know so I can get you up. :)
