FanLit Challenge 3 Round Two

Filed under: FanLit — aliceaudrey @ 4:48 pm

The requirement for the second round is “something goes wrong.”  No Patience’s cat writes a letter or she enters a ball late and leaves before midnight.  Simply take the story from where the Round One winner left off and have something go wrong.

As mentioned before, we had a little dust-up with respect to the winner.  So we took the five entries with the best average score and put them in a poll.  The entries are:

Mistaken Identity  
Redemption By Carriage    
This Rough Paradise 
Washed Up 

For the sake of this example, let’s assume Mistaken Identity is the winner. 

In Mistaken Identity a young French lady named Simone captures an English lord whom she thinks dishonored her sister.  She has indeed captured Lord Rosewood, but it is Michael, not Henry.  Henry died on the Peninsula after having married Simone’s sister.  It ends with the line: “What, does this mean?” he asked once again, this time in her native tongue.

Let’s assume the author has selected a pound note, a bottle of wine, and a candle as the three objects we must include.

The assignment is then to write a chapter in which something goes wrong for Simone and Michael.  Include a pound note, a bottle of wine, and a candle.

What could go wrong?  I’ll put a few ideas in the comments as I think of them.



  1. When will we know which one the winner is?

  4. How about Simone tells Michael that her sister had a son. And the son is then the true heir, rather than Michael. Michael, being the hero, will have to say he gladly gives the title to his nephew. But the nephew was left in some horrid castle in Germany where Baron Von Evil is threatening him, and Simone and Michael are still stranded. One thing leads to another and they get drunk on the wine. When the candle goes out they make love. In the morning he has gone off to save his nephew, leaving her with a pound note sitting on the pillow.

  7. Hey, it’s my story – almost – and I can be as mean as I want. You gotta admit something went wrong.

  8. What happens if it is girl child, then does she get to inherit, or is the uncle still heir?

    I love Baron Von Evil, maybe a certain vampire can enter the picture too.

  9. Nope. A girl child wouldn’t inherrit. Unless we put in a time warp or alternate reality.
