Character Substitute

This month's writing challenge involves rewriting a scene from a story with a substitute character in the mix. As we are an Isobelle Carmody fansite, the comp shall feature some form of Isobelle's works :P

For this comp, we want you to rewrite how the characters might act if in the scene from 'The Keeping Place' (1999 Penguin edition) pg.568
Elspeth and the Misfits are rescued from the treachery of Malik is by one of these other characters and not the dashing Gypsy King Swallow:

  • Jacob Black (From 'Twilight')
  • Captain Hammer (From 'Dr Horrible's Sing-a-long blog')
  • The Doctor (From 'Doctor Who')

Submission Suggestions

From when your character enters the scene - it is up to you how you pursue the story. Your story may follow close to original telling with a few minor detail switches, or it may take a totally different turn. Let your imagination run wild :P
