Alright cats and kittens, I am in charge of the Weekend Challenge this second weekend in March and mine is inspired by classic film noir movies--WOO HOO!!

Just in case you don’t know, film noir movies are filled with hard-boiled dialogue which is the literary equivalent of a quick punch to the gut.  Here’s an example:  “You ever cross me again, or look like it, I’ll bury you. Now beat it.” These hard-boiled lines come from the mind of tough-guy P.I. Philip Marlowe, which is to say from author Raymond Chandler.  The characters in film noir are all morally gray and you're never sure if the hero isn’t actually the villain or that the villain might turn out to be right in the end.

Now if you want to go along for this ride, load your gat, don your trench coat, and join me in the drizzly, treacherous world of noir.

Choose a number between 1 and 40 and I will give you a famous film noir line.  For example:  “"Nice dame. Awfully cold around the heart.”

See what I mean by a punch to the gut :):)   I hope this craziness inspires you, so please be as creative as you can--drabbles/fics can be as long as you want but at least 200 words and you can do any sort of art work the spirit moves you    Just post your work by Sunday night at 11:59pm EST, and you'll be golden.  Lastly, HAVE FUN!!!

I am not creative in any way with artwork, so if you want an icon, I will have to ask for help, but I can give you a drabble or add to my WIP. 
My fandoms are: RDJ's Sherlock Holmes, BBC Sherlock, Elementary, Supergirl, The Flash, Supernatural, Hawaii Five-0, Pretty Little Liars, Fringe, Once Upon A Time, Alias, Hannibal, Veronica Mars, Smallville, Buffy and Angel, The X-Files, Twin Peaks X-Men First Class and Star Trek 2009 Reboot movies)

31. "OK, where were you when he needed you? Maybe you were someplace having beautiful thoughts. Well, I wasn't. I was in a stinkin' gin mill, where all he had to do to see me was walk in, sit down at the table and buy me a drink."
