Weekend Challenge: Well who'd have thought!

Hey team!

So this weekend's challenge is going to be about plot twists.

So I have a list of different plot twists and if you comment here I will give you a plot twist suggestion.

If you create anything to do with the twist idea (can be a twist in a story you are writing, or imagine this happened in canon of whatever fandom you choose) then I will add words to a WIP in your honour (as I have not written anything outside of uni work in months).

Good luck!
