Assignment sheets and other "handouts" are Lyn Fairchild's
Expectations - basically, a description of the class/what we had to do for it
Interior Monologue - a character facing a crisis [you get to figure out what it is! ... the success rate isn't very high, unfortunately...], and the thoughts running through his/her head
Dramatic Monologue - a girl (unreliable narrator) telling a guy, who seems rather indifferent, why she can't let him love her
Second Person - we blame this assignment on Molly. Mine's 'How to give yourself a nervous breakdown' - I think that should tell you about how I felt the night I wrote this; so, not my best piece.
Picture this! - a piece of Conversions, I think this'll become, but it's Leslie talking to a wierd wise-guy in a coffee shop, and then running out of the shop and him chasing after her.
Setting - a girl bemoaning her fate, as she's stuck working a low-wage job and has to keep putting off going to college. Yelling manager and illegal immigrant working "in the back" included.
Theme Tale - a woman visits the battlefield where her now-dead fiancee died years before; strangeness ensues
Election - a [flamingly liberal, apparently - according to a friend who's such a hardnosed conservative she hardly read it ^_^] babble about what went on around/my thoughts about the election.
Reunion - rediculously random, I wrote this for the "SF reunion" that took place about a month after the class ended [I was the only one who actually wrote a piece...], and the comments were all along the lines of "...how did you come up with that?" or "where can I get the pills you were on?" (the latter would've been from sparky, whose pieces were always among the most trippy, involving 'hellplants' or drunk leprechauns riding on trains... who is always high on mountain dew. he has a mountain dew IV, and I'm only barely joking)
