PHOCT 1.2: At OddsAndrea had only a vague idea of where she was going as she hurried through the crowded hall. The most prominent thought in her head was away. Of all the things Taylor could have said, and she had chosen that. Andrea fought for composure. It was useless to get emotional. Everywhere she looked, there were people crying, people fightingeveryone was lost. That poor little girl
"No! Get your fucking hands off me!"
Apparently, the "poor little girl" had already gotten herself into trouble again. Andrea wormed her way between a thin woman in a lab coat and a large robot, following the sound of shouting. A crowd was gathered around something, and she squeezed and excuse-me'd to the center of it. Before she had the chance to see what was going on, however, someone slammed into her, knocking her backward into the people behind her. Struggling to get her wind back, it took Andrea a moment to realize that the person picking himself up off the
PHOCT 1.1: At Odds"So how much do you know about this Charon fella?" Taylor asked, scrutinizing the already-crumpled document in her hand. "Besides the obvious, of course."
"Not much," Andrea admitted, folding her certificate crisply down the middle and tucking it into her pocket. "I preferred the other pantheons. Why, are you suggesting we form a search party ourselves? That isn't the reason you gave earlier."
"Nah. Like I said, I just want the letter-of-passage thing. They can sort out their own shit." Taylor shrugged.

Those FLEET fuckers are practically begging to get screwed over. An all-access pass to the whole place? No questions asked? Totally worth a trip across the Assfuck Fields to get out of that goddamn waiting room, and I'm not the only one thinkin' it. We're not exactly surrounded b
So you're new here.So you’ve made it to the first round of PHOCT. The journal that Robin and the judges have posted has your name on it, along with the person you are going to be facing. Congrats! But now there are all these sticky questions floating around in your mind. I’m guessing you got through the auditions okay, given that you’re here. But now you have to use other people’s characters (gasp shock and awe), and frankly, the whole damn thing makes you a little bit nervous.
That’s why we’re here. And never be afraid to ask questions.
So I have to go up against someone else… What if I don’t know their character well enough?
Send them a note. Seriously. That’s all it takes. Everyone’s competing at the same level that you are. We all want to see good stories come out of this, want to see people learn—and admit it, it’s pretty cool to see your characters come out of someone else
