Well, to answer CaRWash_Cutie's question, I'll have to agree with Carla on suggestion one. Partly because Calleigh is Bullet Girl (come on, who's gonna mess with the gun expert?) and partly because I'm kind of a feminist. And the hilarity. Calleigh rushing in all tough, Ryan almost having a nervous breakdown, Eric teasing the poor guy (and for Carla, Natalia can sort of marvel over Calleigh or even tease her about liking Ryan.) The posting queen said it best and I can't argue with her: And since I'm already speaking about her: Thanks for the answer. I'll keep an eye out for Shootout. And I'm glad you like my name, I like yours too (one of my younger cousins has the same name). I chose it for the often neglected Greek goddess of the hearth: Hestia. She is one of my favorite seldom mentioned mythological female figures. Plus she's patient, and I try to be patient also; oh and, I wouldn't get annoyed with you. Actually, I've been told I'm a pretty good listener. :lol: Now for the trouble with writing block... Happilyhappy, Annwn, I've had that recently and if I may suggest something, try and read over some of your favorite stories (fanfics or otherwise), watch shippy episodes/music videos (if you need romantic visual ideas), and if all else fails take a short challenge; a prompt to get the juices flowing. (Example: Main characters: Horatio, Ryan & Calleigh. Must be no more than 2000 words. Include a rubber duck, a shoe, some coconuts and the phrase "My, what big teeth you have".) If anyone actually does this challenge, let me know.
