    I had an idea (inspired by @rose-colored-fancy ‘s thread😉) that might be fun.

    Tell us your plot in as few words as possible, while still including the whole thing. Dialogue (either from your story, or made up) is a fun way to do it.

    If you aren’t sure about the plot (or just want to do something else) you can also do character arc in as few words as possible.

    Have fun!

    Here’s mine:

    Villain: “I will destroy the whole world to prove my power!”

    Jonathan, “Help! Outrider, help us.”

    Outrider, “No. I’m not helping anyone. I’m more of a danger to anyone then a help.”

    Jonathan, “You’re not a danger.”

    Outrider, “You’re right. I’m a cool wizard.” *stabs Villain.*

    Not all those who wander are lost.

    Great idea! Yours made me chuckle lol. This looks like it will be a good laugh XD

     

    Evil Fae Queen: “Humans are disgusting little creatures. They must all DIE!”

    Faeries: “Hear, hear!”

    Dragon: “Roar!”

    Rebels: “Help us strange girl. Even though you are a terrible person, you are our only hope.”

    Mayra: “This ain’t my problem. I don’t want this stupid power!”

    Hooded Mentor: “How dare you! You were chosen for this, now SHUT UP and kick some butt.”

    Mayra: “I hate you.” *Proceeds to tame dragon and destroy Queen’s fleet with it*

    @arindown Oo, this does sound like fun! Lemme try . . .

    Megyn: *at age six* “Why did God let Daddy die?”

    Mrs. Morgan, guardian and mother figure: “We may not understand why He allowed it . . . But He loves you.”

    ****

    Megyn: * at age 13 * “If God is my Father, why do I feel so alone?”

    Douglas Griffith, mentor and spiritual guardian: “Is your heart completely in His hands or are you still looking for another’s arms?”

    ***

    Megyn: *age 16 – homeless, on the run, starving and heart broken* *to God* “Why did You abandon me? Can I even trust You anymore?”
    <p style=”text-align: left;”>God: *through events, circumstances and people* “I was never gone. Trust me completely.”</p>
    Megyn: “I am yours. . . Completely.”

     

    Kind rough. . .

    Your word I have hidden in my heart,
    That I might not sin against You.

    Ooh, this is such a fun idea!

    First book: (No, actually, all the books, and all the scenes, literally all the time XD)

    Gavril: Liorah, no.

    Family: Liorah, no.

    Friends: Liorah, no.

    Basically the entire universe: Liorah, no.

    Liorah: Liorah, yes.

    Everyone: That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen work.

     

    Okay, just kidding, here’s a more accurate one XD:

    Liorah: I do whatever I want and nothing and nobody is going to stop me.

    Everyone tries to stop Liorah from being blindingly stupid.

    Liorah: Okay, maybe they had an idea, but I’m still not going to listen to them.

    Everything goes horribly wrong.

    Liorah: I wish I had listened to them but I’m never ever ever going to admit it.

    Everything gets way, way worse. (Like, it’s bad.)

    Liorah: This is all my fault. *Apologies all around*

    Book two summarized:

    Liorah: Okay, it isn’t all my fault, it’s yours too. Die.

     

    This was such a good idea and I had fun trying to summarize Liorah’s character arc XD I mean, that’s what it comes down to XD

    Without darkness, there is no light. If there was no nighttime, would the stars be as bright?

    @irishcelticredflowercrown *clapping* Yes! Don’t let all the humans die…we’re not perfect, but we’re fascinating.😉


    @dakota
    *trying not to cry* Love this so much. Now I’m itching to touch the darker side of the Outrider’s arc…


    @rose-colored-fancy
    Liorah, yes!😄   This Liorah girl sounds like someone I’d like. My favorite characters are the fiesty ones.

    Not all those who wander are lost.

    @arindown Wow! Thanks. . . Guess that means it’s a good plot.
