Nightmare Fuel Prompt - Day Three

ETA the bsaic rules of the project from Day 1's post, with item D bolded, because this keeps happening and I want it to stop.

Some basic rules:

A) Be encouraging of the writers participating, please! Some folks have been writing for years. Other folks may be trying out the words-putting-into-sentences-doing for the first time with this project. ALL levels of skill are as welcome as all levels of participation frequency.

B) If you want constructive criticism, please request it!

C) If someone has not requested criticism, DON'T.

D) And for my sanity, please please PLEASE do not respond to the prompt images with attempts to be clever or funny. The point of the project is horror, and if you come to the project just trying to get a laugh out of folks by making jokes in the comments, you're ruining it. One year of NFP has already been ruined for me by this kind of thing. If you do it, you are a ruiner. Don't be a ruiner. (If you can't resist making a LOL, just do it by sharing it to your own stream thankyouplease.)

E) That said, if the prompt image inspires something totally funny for you, or romantic, or otherwise non-horror - run with it! Horror is the core of the project and remains my own focus, but one of the things I have found marvelous about NFP is how wildly different the results are in people's flash responses born from the same inspiration image.

F) As always, I try to always credit the source of an image and provide a linkback to its origin. Sometimes GIS and Tineye both fail me in that regard, but if I post something without sourcing/credit and you can figure out who made it and where I should link back to, totally let me know.

Go write a flash of a thing, post it, and link to it in the comments!
