Round robin?

Round robins seem to be from the by gone era, know what Im talking about? Anyways, I was wondering, Mils, if it would be okay, since we're all fanfic writers here...for the most part, to start up a round robin? Might be interesting or maybe Im just in a fit about no new rayearth dribbles/ficlets/discussions?

Why not.... I can make a new section on the board?   I'd have to find another title. *laughs*

But that sounds like fun.   I need to force my pen back into the fandom.

Okay, I created it.   Have fun.   I am only going to pop in for short bits for the next few weeks.   

I wonder if the activity of this board will go up come summer time?

What exactally is a 'Round Robin'. I've never heard of it before.
Should have wished for unicorns.

a Round robin is a story where in several people have their hand all controlling the plot, characters and so forth in a random way. Its like one person starts the story, another adds on to it, and it continues that way.  Like say I write:

The sun glared feverishly over the Cephirean landscape. Pastel rays inching ever towards the end of the world, waiting before they slipped unceremoniously off of the horizon. It gave Umi the chills to watch the alien landscape twist from day to night. Turning her gaze towards the east she paused. A lone figure stood brazenly against the onslaught of night, as if he alone could keep it at bay.

I would then post and mils might write the next part like so:

Clef had no concept of time, watching Umi view the sunset. The sapphire shade of her hair mulling purple in the hues of light. It left him breathless, the moment stretching on into infinity in the barest of seconds it passed. His lips thinned, as he prepared to say what was on his mind. What they both knew already, yet too afraid to speak.

And it would continue with each person adding new stuff on, more characters, different situations and places. Its like a fic involving several writers. Rather fun when you have several different cooks in the kitchen.
