Mysterious Month of May Challenge!

Hello my dear people!  I am in charge of this Months’ Challenge and it is a mysterious one.  Literally, it has to do with mystery stories, the crimes, the victims, the perpetrators and the detectives working the case:  Welcome to the Mysterious Month of May Challenge :):)

I’ve randomly chosen stories featuring some of my favorite fictional detectives--Sherlock Holmes, Roderick Alleyn, Hercule Poirot, Dame Frevisse, Trixie Belden among others--and each day in this Mysterious Month of May I will hit you with a prompt.  Perhaps one will be a description of the crime and/or the mystery, perhaps one day it will be a quote from the victim, detective or the criminal.

There are only a couple of rules:
1.  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
2.  HAVE
FUN!!!


Please post your entry as a new post in this community. (Don't forget the LJ Cut if the entry is really long)

And if you have any questions, please ask :):)

Today's prompt:  “Do not misunderstand me.  There can be no doubt who struck the blow.  But the motive-the motive!”

Ah yes, a fan of the hard-boiled detective :)

Perhaps I'll have to see what Marlowe or Sam Spade has to say about all this mystery stuff :):)

SAM SPADE! ....and even the lesser-known Sam Shovel! :D

To be honest, though, my favorite is the insurance investigator with the action-packed expense account, Johnny Dollar... but I love all those guys! and I listen to waaaaaay too much old time radio

I need to download that episode too, just so we have it to listen to at any time. :)

Mister Lincoln, I am an old man, I just want to live out my days in peace!

GAAAAAAAAAAAAH! I'm obsessed with mysteries these days although, oddly enough, I've never read any Agatha Christie. Holmes, on the other hand, is my man. :D

Heh - this prompt is perfect for one of my characters though because he's constantly opening his mouth and getting slapped.

considering there's a fair bit of crime/mystery to my current wip, I should be able to play with some of these :D
