Weekend Challenge: Is it Film Noir or a Knuckle Sandwich? :)

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.

Rare Pairs Days 8, 9 and 10!

March 2017-rare pairs banner.jpg

I know, I know, I am way behind and for that I can only apologise. The last couple of days have been a bit nuts and I completely lost track of it. I AM SO SORRY, my Queen, but I am here, I am square, and I am totally going to make up for it in the next few days by getting all my posts scheduled so I don't miss another day!

Here are the three prompts I have missed:

Day 8: A human, a supernatural being and an alien walk into a bar...

Day 9: Meeting at an accident scene.

Day 10: "Is this seat taken?"

Rules are here.

Further prompts can be left here.
