Thank you to everyone who had liked, shared and shown general excitement for the resurrection of the exquisite corpse!
Now the sign up phase is over (sorry, no more can join this round!) and it is time to play!
Because we are so awesome and have had such an amazing sign up response, the corpse will be split into two teams: Team Fire and Team Ice! You will both start off from the same line, but it will be up to you guys where it leads on!
I'm a participant! What happens next?
Read this carefully and ask questions if you are confused!
The first line has been sent to the first person on the list. The power is now in their hands to allow the poem to travel between all participants using the deviantART note system. Please only use notes
- do not post this elsewhere or you spoil the game!
When it is your turn, you will receive a note from the previous participant and you will see only their line of the poem. (senders, make sure you start a new note, do not forward the note you received on
! This stops any potential chain and extra lines being seen!). You will then send your line to the next participant. (Title the note with your team name helps me a lot!)
When you send your note on, please ensure you also send your note to BeccaJS
(that's me!). I will be collecting all the lines together to arrange the complete poem, which I will post at the end in a journal. I will also use this as confirmation you have registered your line and the chain continues. If I am not copied in, I will believe you are no longer playing and move on to the next person. (Nb. after 48 hours, I will send you a nudge, and if no reply after a further 24 hours, you will be moved on).
Besides the technical, relax and have fun
! We have no idea how the poem will turn out in the end, but it will be something we've never seen before!
This is the important bit! See who you are expecting a note from, see you you are sending yours too. Remember to copy me in
and all will be grand!

Edit: for those wondering how we are progressing, the red and blue bullets on each team shows who currently holds the ball for the team! Feel free to cheer them on with warm fuzzies and such!
