Starting Date: Monday, May 12, 2014
Open to all forum members, even after it starts!

This month's prompt:
Take a Character, Leave a Character

You must take a character from the previous post and incorporate them into your new post. They don't have to be the main character, and you may slightly modify them to fit disparate time periods and settings, but the character should be recognizably the same. The same character may be used more than once, and the stories do not have to have a common setting or canon.

Instructions:
Simply post your blog's URL in this thread to join. I'll let you know in this thread when it's your turn. Once your turn comes up, you have two days to complete a blog post using the prompt. When you are finished, please add a link to your post on the thread.

If you signed up but find yourself unable to participate or need to be moved around in the schedule, please PM me or post in the thread. If you fail to post on your blog and on the thread within two days, I'll bump you down to the end of the line on the third day; you'll get a second chance at the end of the month.

Each post should be less than 1000 words if possible. Read and comment on other participants' posts if you possibly can--they'll be doing the same for you! Please include a list of all participants' blogs (not necessarily their actual posts for the month) in your blog post.

Wellp, four people is a little thin even by the standards of our recent chains. If we don't get another person or two by Monday I'll delay our start date a bit.

C'mon, writingismypassion! Will an extra day help?

Sorry, folks! Had a family emergency arise this month and haven't had a chance to post. I'm still dealing with some issues, so I'll have to forgo this month's prompt.

Hopefully I can join in again next month!

Thanks everyone! The chain is complete :)

You can suggest a June topic if you like, though I am seriously considering giving things a hiatus.
