your task: use at least one of the three prompts
you can use the prompt in any way - work the title in to the piece, take inspiration from the lyrics or video. use a quote. take a concept from the song. anything like that. i should be able to tell, once i know which song you used, how you took the prompt. if you're worried i might not catch the prompt influence, you may include a brief explanation (no more than 100 words). if you want a critique, please let me know. BUT! keep in mind that i will be honest, and it could be harsh. don't ask if you can't handle it. if you ask and then b***h, you will be blacklisted.

I’m interested ^^ and half way done my story. <.< I’m just a little worried that it’s rating is pushing Gaia standards a little. Do you mind if I PM it to you? It doesn’t contain anything really really bad just alcohol/drug abuse and the suggestion of sex.sweatdrop
