The Cupid Contract
I was asked to restore this by someone I like very much, so here it is. -cb
I know we just whacked Santa a couple of months ago, but this month the holiday hitmen are at it again, because I'm putting a contract out on Cupid. I tried to resist the idea, but what's that chunky cherub done for me lately? I haven't had a date in I don't knowhow... <ahem> Well... I want him gone. Do you hear me? Gone. Nixed. Forever eighty-sixed. The longest vacation. Whacked. Never heard from again. Feeding the fishes. Pushing up daisies. Rubbed out. Heck, playing the harp on a cloud somewhere- he looks the part! I don't really care how you do it, but do it!
There's a clock on this contract- I need it done in two weeks. Do you hear me? Two weeks! That means you've got 'til 11:59PM on Wednesday, March 2nd, New York time! (Google "NY time" if you're not sure)
Okay, so look, in plain English: your story has to be about an original character (OC) that tries to kill Cupid. I don't care what you tie it to- DC, Marvel, the Muppets, your personal long running epic, or an all new, all original story, but your OC has to try to kill Cupid. Whether your OC succeeds or not is up to you, but they've got to be out to kill him.
Happy hunting. And remember: two weeks.
