The Gang of Five

It certainly has been a crazy year, hasn’t it?  Well, thankfully, a new year is upon us and here at the Gang of Five forum we have a new year of showcases, prompts, and themes to get the new year started in the right way.  We wish you all a happy new year, and we look forward to what you have in store for us this year!

For the month of January we have a new character showcase.  Please warmly welcome Littlefoot's Mother! :)littlefoot The character showcase topic for this month can be found here.

Also keep in mind that the December and January prompts for the fanfic prompt challenge is now open.  We are doing things a bit differently this season and allowing for people to either fulfill a monthly prompt or a suggested prompt during each month.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with! :)  The fanfic prompt rules and list of monthly prompts can be found here.

How about this one:
"The first precondition to achieve something "completely impossible" is to be crazy enough to give it a try."

Scientists have calculated that the chance of anything so patently absurd actually existing are millions to one.
But magicians have calculated that million-to-one chances crop up nine times out of ten.
Mort, Terry Pratchett

This is just contradictory of itself.

Well one of my favorite quotes, from "The Catcher in the Rye", uses a curse word and I'm not sure if I can put it up here XD

I like Hamlet. Not so much the story as a whole (it's good but I'm not much one for Shakespeare). I like it because it has some of the greatest lines I've ever heard (er, read):

Quote from: Hamlet on  
There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.

Quote from: Hamlet on  
I could be bounded in a nutshell, and count myself a king of infinite space, were it not that I have bad dreams.

The whole "To Be or Not to Be" speech is awesome, but long XD I'll pick out my favorite part

Quote from: Hamlet on  
Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep; ó
To sleep, perchance to dream: ó ay, there's the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,

Quote from: Hamlet & Rosencrantz on  
Hamlet: Denmark's a prison.
Rosencrantz: Then is the world one.

If you want to quote something profane, censor it. For example.

Quote from: South Park on  
Stan: Oh my God! They killed Kenny!
Cartman: There b*****ds!

Ah, grand. In that case, here's that quote from "Catcher in the Rye"

Quote from: Holden Caulfield on  
That's the whole trouble. You can't ever find a place that's nice and peaceful, because there isn't any. You may think there is, but once you get there, when you're not looking, somebody'll sneak up and write "**** you" right under your nose.

I like it because, in a figurative sense, it's very true.

"Lock all your doors and windows. Although a pane of glass may not stop a zombie, the sound of it's shattering will be the best warning you can get."
