Rocks fall. Everybody dies.  

I was just whinging that this was a part of the synopsis where if I could write, “And then something big happens,” it would be much easier. Laura Anne, helpfully, said, “Rocks fall. Everybody dies.”

…which, as it turns out, given the location and scene at hand, is a totally valid plot suggestion. Sometimes this job doesn’t suck. :)

Surely not everyone - don't you need to keep Joanne around for the book ideas Ted gave you?

And *squeeeee* - Postman rang doorbell, hands me a box, I open it and Walking Dead inside.

Mine is 'Giant teeth appear out of nowhere and bite off your head. You die.' Though that's more D&D. It's gotten common enough that I can threaten the players by saying 'Giant teeth...' and then they straighten out.

The other one was 'Zzzot. A bolt of lightning randomly appears and strikes you dead.' Now shortened in game play to 'Zzzt.'

Rocks fall. Everybody dies.

Dude. This is my new life-is-messy mantra. Soooo much bullshit, so little tolerance. Rocks fall, everybody dies indeed.

*laughs* Yeah. It's kind of nice and solid and succinct, isn't it? And somehow much more satisfying than "shit happens." :)
