Numbers Challenge

The rules are:

1. Each post is either a hundred words or more/ or you can make a graphic/art

2. However the number influences you, go with the flow! I don’t care how you use or abuse the number! (I’ll give some suggestions/ideas/other languages to help you along if you get stuck!)

3. Post anywhere – tumblr, amazon.com, your journal, AO3, the dreaded ff.net, your bedroom wall, etc.

4. There is NO time limit.

And the number shall be ...17!

Go forth and create!

She liked the way the numbers looked when drawn together- the one, standing tall, and the seven rushing into it, creating the perfect right triangle (and fie on those people who say that right triangles can only be drawn with the point at the top). She’d write them that way often and people would try to figure it out as if it was some ancient Hieroglyphics instead of a fairly small number. Other people would think it was a D, which seemed mad to her since her D’s were always presented with a little curlicue at the top. It didn’t help her dating life that the last four digits of her phone number were 1717 because when she wrote down her contact information, it was often misconstrued and tossed aside as a fake.

During meetings, she would often fill a sheet of paper with the number seventeen, over and over again, and then shade in half of the triangles on the page. She had tried it on the typewriter, but she didn’t like how it looked. There was too much space between the numbers. It looked to her more like a one seven than a seventeen. Between the little flippy thing on the one and the subtle curve of the seven, computer generated numbers just didn’t work.

Some people might have thought she was a little bit crazy, but she kept on filling out forms at a meticulous pace, crafting each letter and number with the perfect angles and curves and adding just a bit of whimsy when she came to the number seventeen.
