Guide entry: The Bulldozer people of Jayvee Six
The Bulldozer people of Jayvee Six have a religion which is very nearly unique. Large yellow metallic creatures with a hydrocarbon-based metabolism, they believe that the whole universe was created by a composite being they call the “council planning department”. The great weight of the population has caused freak wormholes to open up near their home planet, and ambitious young bulldozers sneak out through these wormholes in search of officious little berks with clipboards in order to mindlessly do their bidding, in the belief that a clipboard is the only true sign of a genuine prophet of their gestalt god.
Mr Prosser / Bulldozer
It's been a long time since anyone posted here.
I don't own Mr Prosser, and I don't own the Bulldozer. The character of Mr Prosser was created by Douglas Adams for satirical purposes, in order to pass subtle comment about mindless bureaucracy. The Bulldozer was created to knock down stuff in order to build bypasses.
I was inspired by a sentence on this community's info page which said "Some people aren't in the mood to be scared out of their sex drive by seeing graphic Mr. Prosser/bulldozer fic where they can't avoid it, so be polite and for the love of Christ on a cracker with icing and sprinkles, use a cut tag
".( Here it is.Collapse )

. Also, feel free to submit drabbles from last week's challenge. :)
|Thursday, October 13th, 2005|
An update ahead of time.
Because clearly I won't remember once Thursday actually rolls around. I am, in the entirety of the known universe, the worst mod ever. There is no excuse. I'm very sorry. So without further ado I present this week's theme: making an entrance
Please keep submitting! Thus far we have been getting brilliant drabbles, and I hope they keep rolling in!
The next update will be on the 20th.

Title: New Horizons
Challenge: None (oops)
Disclaimer: Not mine
Ford has travelled all his life. He’s never been scared to take new paths, follow new horizons, run screaming from new monsters. The thrill calls to his blood like tea to Englishmen.
So why does this one short walk fill him with fear? Will his fate be set in stone? Will his road become straight and narrow?
He looks to the end of the aisle, where his smiling lover waits. He takes a deep breath. Steps forward. Music starts up. The cyber-priest smiles. Ford falls in love all over again.
And the next day, they chase down a new horizon.

Let's poke the new girl!
Words: 101 (sorry)
Challenge: None (oops)
Disclaimer: Not mine
“Well?” said Ford, bouncing on his feet like an eager five-year-old. “What do you think?”
Arthur looked askance at him then examined the bizarre thing. “It’s very…original,” he decided, at last. “The modelling technique is certainly unorthodox. I don’t think anyone’s attempted to sculpt with jam before.”
Ford grinned and patted his creation proudly. “I call it ‘My Favourite Dream’.”
Arthur felt a faint blush start to glow in his cheeks as the shapes within the model made themselves more clear under his scrutiny. “Is that…”
The obscene grin widened. “Allow me to demonstrate,” Ford said, before leaping on the Earthman.

Hi, I'm new!
Okay, I've written some random (and lame...)hitchhiker drabbles before, and since it's been so quiet here, I might just post one! :P (Sorry, I don't know how to LJ-cut yet...)
Characters: Ford, Arthur
Setting: before the world ends sometime...
Challenge: None! Sorry...
“Look, Ford, a shooting star! Make a wish!”
Arthur pointed at the sky excitedly from where he lay on the ground. They’d left the pub and found the park in giggles.
“What’s that?” inquired Ford. “Why a wish?”
“You’re supposed to make one,” whined Arthur. “Don’t you know?”
Ford shook his head.
“You don’t know twinkle-twinkle?”
“No,” Ford sighed. “What’s it mean?”
Arthur looked confused. “…You can’t seriously not know. I mean, everyone knows
“God, Ford! Were you born on Mars, or under a rock?”
Ford grinned wide, staring at the stars.
“Mars is peanuts to where I
’m from…” Current Mood: amused

Challenge and Apologies
School decided to slam me pretty hard for the past week, along with other things that've cropped up. I'm very sorry.
Okay, so new challenge? You Can Never Go Home Again
Write about childhood friends or memories, talk about Arthur remembering Earth, or even Ford remembering Betelgeuse, or whatever you can think of. It just has to involve the idea of home and never being able to go back to the way things were. That sort of thing.
Bon appetit! Current Mood: embarrassed
