Re: First Lines

Nice one, Culwch

Not overly original but I always liked the opening to a piece I put together for critiquing ages ago:

Still reeling, Jarvin turned to face his attacker.

and somethig new:

I've always avoided disguises, with a life expectancy like mine the last thing I need is a false sense of security.

There was no escaping the fact that if he wanted it back, he had to go into the lair of the beast to get it.

It burned like hellfire, hotter than black rage; it took all the determination Alit had to hold on despite the stench of his own flesh burning.

In all the years she had known him, she had never seen this side of him.

Re: First Lines

The moist coolness of Geldrik's tongue cleansed first one eye, then the other, then the other.


This is the first line of a hook I've written on the hooks: Let's write 'em thread. Thought I'd kill two birds with one stone, hee hee heeee.

I touched the chill, moist stonework, this city was old, so old the word had little meaning.

Re: First Lines

She was beautiful; a fact that only registered after she was dead and even then it was an observation noted as a peripheral thought rather than an emotional response. After all, I had just killed her.

Okay, two lines... sorry.

Tug struggled to get the warning out, but with his new tongue, what he spat was more whistle than word.

Re: First Lines

Leiden trembled, the gun's barrel pressed firmly to his temple, threatening to blow the thought clear out of his head: how the hell am I going to get out of this?
