Yay! I'm going to write an entry in for this one. I kept putting off April because the month was full of stuff I had to do. Hopefully, I can finish this before time is up!
*Crossing fingers*

Ah, damn! I miss April's. Aw well, it was only a drabble. I could save it for amnesty month if you have another one(?).
I missed the deadline due to hotel internet not accepting LJ has a "safe website", but really, my fault, should have written up before my holiday.

I'ma try extra hard to get one from this. The prompts remind me of my "There's Always Someone Leaving Alone" fic that I did for this com! :D

My own fault though. Should have posted it before. I did, thank you! (: It was only a short weekend break, but it was good.

:D Heheh! I'm glad it left a lasting impression on you!! Lolz!

Oh yes, that would be good! :D
And you should do a mix and match amnesty agani!!! Where you can use up to 8 prompts from any month! That was good last time. (Only I struggled to make it fit an overall theme :/)
Or just a simple amnesty? Or just any 8 prompts no overall theme? Gosh, there's too many choices!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, defo do a poll, there's too many optionsssss!!!!!!!!!!!!

I personally would like a simple amnesty month so I can finish up my fics (:
I'm not sure if it's too soon. The last one was in February. . . *shurgs* Yes, do a poll, see how the others feel.

Can I have a smoking hot person, who is smoking and creating a cloud of smoke to count for both prompts? OR can I have one smoking hot person, talking to a smoking person (a person who is smoking) while being covered in their yucky smokey smog?
