Sarcasm, can’t write without it! Plot (Duh). Thoughts of the characters – good way to either get the reader involved or make them hate or love him or her. And would I do what I make them do? You can stop wondering the answer is yes: ALWAYS! Life would be boring otherwise.

How are you supposed to choose? The former you need to stay alive and the latter you need to live, unless someone found a way to live off nothing but air and I missed it? Crap. I did, didn’t I?
Mars or Jupiter:
Wasn’t Jupiter voted out? Hm…. And isn’t Mars uninhabitable? I dunno about you, but those aren’t exactly choice places to move to!

Red = blood = life = love = yeah… let’s not go there. Still Rose wins!
