Horoscopes by Gil Hizon - Week of October 11 - 17, 2016
Locker Room Talk
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
This week, you must trust in your ability to call bullshit from miles away, dahling. And this is due to the fact that your vocal orifice is able to keep up with your quickass brain. Anything gutteral you feel and say will be on fleek. And what’s great about all this is that, not only will you have time to help yourself in deciphering what’s real or what’s for shit, you’ll also have time to help other hos find their way. Everybody wins!
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Be prepared for some great inspiration to flow through yo ass this week. You will feel so spiritually nourished by rich concepts and ideas, that you may feel inclined to share what’s happening with other bitches. As much as I encourage you to express yourself, be wary of how you communicate your message. A tiny slip of the tongue can derail your declared mission statement just like that.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
When Mercury and Jupiter work together, it can only mean wonderful things for yo ass. This is really the perfect time for you to put some real thought and power into your long term plans. To you, it will feel like each idea you generate is just fabulous. Just be careful when you try to explain all this shit to others. Your concepts may make sense to you, but to other queens they may sound like gayberrish.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
There’s just too much happening in the workplace, and it’s messing up your brain! For every gleeful thought of progress in your career aspirations comes feelings of fear and doubt. It’s an internal battle indeed; one you may feel yo ass cannot resolve, especially with that expired Pepto Bismol, but with enough focus, meditation and stamina, you can make all your negative thoughts and positive feelings work together to harness your defenses and strengthen your resolve.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
The fog is about to clear, henny. And once that shit’s gone, all you will see are rainbows and unicorns. Yes, welcome to Dreamland (powered by PISCES), where Slurpees are water and trees are made out of fucking cotton candy. At first, nothing will make sense. But once you expect the unexpected, you should be able to navigate your way through this crazy ass clusterfuck.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
I know you’ve put in a lot of work on this current project of yours (way too much if you ask me) but gurl, it’s really time for you to go back to the drawing board and start a new project - ‘coz here’s what’s happening. All the time, ideas and energy you are putting into this current project are being manipulated and conformed into what the project entails. If you put the same time, ideas and energy on a clean slate, their only option is to grow into something fucktastic.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
New meat alert! And this one’s a talker, mama! He talks so much that you wonder, “does this bitch have time to eat or perform oral sex?” But it’s also quite possible that this queen is nervous around you. All it takes to put this ho at ease is for you to reassure his ass that he don’t have to project any of his personalities to make sure he comes off impressionable. Oh, yeah, he’s most likely a GEMINI.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
You’re about to be hit with different surges of inspiration, and the process may be too much for your mind to take. If you know of any meditative exercises to expand your mind, this is the time to implement that shit. Once the flow of creative energy hits, the last thing you should do is to try to make sense of it, or try to explain it to others. Just feel the damn experience.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
Just what we need: you finding yet another new path to enlightenment. We cannot wait for you to shove these new ideas into our throats. We look forward to you non-stop talking-talking-talking about this new fad you found out until we’re ready to jump ship on brunch, or drinks, or any other social setting with yo ass. It’s great that you found something that nourishes your soul, but can’t you just keep it to yo damn self?
CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
You’ve been Ms. Super Bummer lately, but this week, you’ll find a way to manipulate your feelings into believing that everything is hunky dory. I know that doesn’t sound good as written, but if I were you, I’d take it. You simply cannot afford to be all gloom and doom this week. Bitches be depending on yo ass to get them through. Whatever tactic you need to lighten up, fucking use it, queen!
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Your feeling very zen this week, and quite frankly it’s making the rest of us fucking paranoid. This is a new look for you and it’s a little unsettling. It makes us feel as if any moment now, you’ll ditch the kumbayah attitude, turn on us and eat our brains. Maybe if you tried to explain this change in your demeanor, we can better understand where yo ass is coming from.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Things that used to matter before don’t anymore, as you enter this new phase of self-discovery. You’re the kind of queen who can adapt to ever-changing surroundings, and this week, you will not disappoint. You take each negative shit thrown at you with an, “eh,” and you trudge through that runway in your stilettos with a sense of power and conviction which can make even the toughest SCORPIOS go, “Oh, shit. Who dis bitch?”
(DISCLAIMER for all entries: This is all a shitshow!)

Challenge Dates: posting date May 21st; publication May 22nd
Open to: Fan Fiction
THE PROMPT: It’s a Season 6 rewrite challenge!
6 gave us a lot of Carol and a lot of Daryl, but not a whole lot of
them together. Given how much we got from interviews, behind-the-scenes
talk and more about how Carol and Daryl care about each other, think
about each other, blah blah blah, not having them onscreen together
We’ve compiled a sample list of scenes that
featured only either Carol or Daryl - your job is add the other half of
our dynamic duo and make the Caryl magic happen! (You’re not restricted to this list - any scene from S6 that contained only Carol or Daryl will fit the challenge.)
The Wolves’ attack (6.02)
In the burned woods, encountering Dwight/Tina/Honey (6.06)
In Alexandria when the walker horde hits (6.08, 6.09)
In the truck when they encounter the Saviors (6.09)
The supply run where they encounter Jesus for the first time (6.10)
On the trip to Hilltop (6.11)
The night before the raid on the Saviors (6.12)
The run to Edison’s Apothecary (6.14)
THE DEADLINE: Submissions must be turned in by midnight Pacific Time on May 21st.

want to enter the challenge. Even if you’re not sure you’ll have
anything ready in time - let us know you’re planning on it.
Write! Stories must be at least 100 words
Multiple entries are allowed!
No McReedus this time (given the theme, we assume you already knew that.)
Do not upload it yet! Wait until May 21 to upload your fic – just
like in challenges past, we will be suspending automatic validation for
