We’re back and we apologize for the long wait. It’s been hectic to say the least. This week Mark’s prompt focuses on the kitchen… and evil? Mark and Rebecca both feel as though they failed the prompt and yet Rebecca takes home bonus points. How? You can join us at the AIARWIP/PRIEST forum here!

New week, new prompt! This one seems obvious, but we’ve got some bonus points in, if you want to win them! Mark damn sure did and Rebecca failed spectacularly. They also talk a bit about what makes a good prompt. Please let us know if Mark caused your day to devolve into any anger or sadness (as he did for his sister)!

Rebecca switches things up and goes first when her prompt this week gave her two story ideas, but she wasn’t thrilled with either. Mark on the other hand had something that could be a story left as is, or advanced if he wanted to follow. They also attempt to speak on the topic of mental health and writing, but Rebecca’s animals were causing a bit of a disturbance. What will you come up with? Something Nice? Or something else?

Mark’s prompt this weeks stumps the both he and Rebecca a bit, but they eventually have something to show for their efforts. Mark comes up with a concept that terrifies Rebecca, especially with the an unexpected reappearance. Rebecca has a handful of story ideas, two with endings and one with a start.

MENTIONED IN THE PODCAST WHO WAS PHONE Creepypasta: I could link you to a site, but why? It’s on a million of them, there seems no credible source when it comes to the author or the original content, and this is the version both Mark and I know the best: So ur with ur honey and yur making out wen the phone…

In the 12th episode of YOU Killed the Priest, writers Mark Hermann and Rebecca Galardo follow a Rebecca’s prompt, The Banned Religion! Mark creates a spooky and old-school atmosphere with his unnamed, unknown religion while Rebecca manages to thoroughly depress Mark (and possibly listeners, sorry) with her concept. As usual, the two have gone completely separate routes to creating the work: Mark’s is a story, Rebecca’s a fleshed out background of a culture and the religion it created.

In the 11th episode of YOU Killed the Priest, writers Mark Hermann and Rebecca Galardo follow a new prompt, one of Mark’s. The Cursed Object! Mark truly harrowing curse. Rebecca has two curses to share and Mark – as always – has very strong opinions about one in particular. Rebecca also shares her husband’s idea from last week, but one that fits both Long Term Carry On and The Cursed Object. You can join us at the AIARWIP/PRIEST forum here!

In the 10th episode of YOU Killed the Priest, writers Mark Hermann and Rebecca Galardo follow a new prompt, one of Rebecca’s. Mark creates a heartrending narrative while Rebecca explains her own failure to completely work through the prompt – leading to Mark giving several good possibilities for it.

In the 9th episode of YOU Killed the Priest, writers Mark Hermann and Rebecca Galardo the second half of Mark’s prompt from last week, which was an either/or prompt but we decided to do both! Today’s prompt is: Happy Your Burn Place! Mark felt he failed to capture the right vibes, but Rebecca thought he nailed it! Rebecca, on the other hand was completely unsure. Both created actual stories this time. No surprise, Rebecca’s is set in her current world of Fulton Hills. Both explain their processes and what they felt they loved or got wrong. What do you guys think? Did they both do the prompt justice? Or did they (especially Rebecca) fail? Take the prompt and try it yourself and then let us know what you came up with!

In this episode of YOU Killed the Priest, writers Mark Hermann and Rebecca Galardo follow one of Mark’s prompts and went for bonus points. Because of this we now have two episodes based on one prompt (with an either/or option, but we chose to do BOTH). Burn Your Happy Place! Mark followed the prompt and ended up (even after a disastrous loss of work) with a very creepy horror snipet, a piece that would work into any length of story. Rebecca came up with the plots to two stories, more fascinated with the one with her already-created FH version of gremlins, but she intends to use both in future works. Take the prompt and try it yourself and then let us know what you came up with!

In this episode of YOU Killed the Priest, writers Mark Hermann and Rebecca Galardo follow one of Rebecca’s prompts, What’s That Job?! Mark followed the prompt and ended up doubling his work (and points; clear winner!), coming up with a beautiful and haunting atmosphere and storyline. Rebecca, despite finding really cool options, followed her Muse’s desire and turned what sounded like a boring job into something she was fascinated with that she will be able to use in her current world of Fulton Hills.
