  1. Ooh, what a fun idea! πŸ˜€ If I can actually come up with one for the second picture (lovely aaaahh!!) I may actually join in. I don’t really do prompts though so I’ll have to test the waters and see… πŸ˜‰

    Oh, and I don’t know if you like doing tags like this, but I tagged you on my blog, C.B! πŸ™‚ You obviously don’t have to do it but I thought I’d tell you anyway. XD https://deborahocarroll.wordpress.com/2015/06/04/favorite-screen-characters-tag/

  4. Sorry I didn’t get around to this in time. πŸ˜₯ I honestly wanted to, but I kind of backed myself into a corner entering that cowboy story contest. Waiting for them to announce the winners is just nerve grating. They’re now announcing them one by one. Now I know I’m not second or third place. It’s first or nothing, and I barely got any sleep last night. XD
    I might still do a story one one of these some other time, though! πŸ™‚
