JMack Will Kill Off the Character You Choose!
« on: April 01, 2016, 09:31:40 PM »
OK, I'm just going to ignore that @xiagan stole my fun about voting for which character to kill off.

Here's the list, folks! Only Skeleton makes no appearance (since he's already dead).
Who should I kill off in a story-to-be-named-later?

You get three votes in three days.  ;D

I chose the arrogant soldier, Good Dog, and the child. The child needs to go the most out of all of them. I despise children, and he's crying and being a whimp anyway. His ship should be shot down or crash or something. Makes the most sense.

Voted, with just one vote, for the wizard who makes people think they're household pets, because it's one of your best stories, and it's fucked up enough for me to enjoy seeing him die!  :D

No one replied to my challenge about the cute squirrels >:(

Anyway Jmack, I think you've got a clear winner (you can't murder a whole cast, please don't copy Martin ;))

Thank you for oh everyone!
I'll have to write this sequel soon. I even had a flash last night of who might give him his comeuppance.

Oh, the squirrels? Yes I was one of the voters there. I wanted to see how he'd do that.

Jmack told me to vote, so I did, because good things seem to happen when I do what Jmack did.

I voted for the evil enchanter who makes people believe they're household pets, because no one wants to see a grown-ass man trying to catch mice with his teeth.

Although I now regret making my choice so quickly as voting for Jmack to get his Scrubs Janitor on with the Squirrels would have been funny, if only because I'm a horrible person. But I didn't, so need to fight me ScarletBea...

*scratches beard* Maybe I'll read some of them now.

Yes, @Peat, good things happen when you follow JMack. Read his works. They are sublime. They are wondrous. They should be studies in schools. Except in Texas. No, especially in Texas. Join the JMack army. There is no risk to your soul.

I, Atku, Great God of Goats, declare this.





don't listen to the goat! I created him, and now he escapes his prison from time to time. Think tony stark and ultron, and double the insanity. Do not listen to the goat.

@Lanko a little part of my soul shrivels and dies every time I see that picture of Jen Lawrence holding a bow.
Note the idiot grip complete with the intention of shredding her left hand forefinger should she loose. The right hand on the string clamping the nock will ensure she wont hit a moose nevermind a squirrel. The back quiver is a great way of scattering arrows through the forest but almost impossible to use. I can only think that the armourer on the film hadn't a clue or she ignored all instruction in the noble art of Toxophilly.
