Team Competition: Book Trivia Competitions
« on: December 21, 2013, 11:50 PM »
Welcome to the newest PTS initiative.
Team Competition: Book Trivia Competitions

Rules:
1. Four teams would be formed by volunteering members of even number of members (as per the number of people who sign up.) As more people join, they will be added.)
2. There will be a book trivia posted, i.e., plot details, character descriptions, quotes or background descriptions,etc that will not be completely obvious but will be as unique as they can be.
3. Every trivia post for a book must have at least two things of those mentioned to form a valid question.
4. After the first question, the next question will be posted by the team who answered the first question. Then the team who answers their question will ask the next one and so on.
5. The Mods (those who don't participate in the competition) will be the game-masters. They will have the ability to add special book themes. These themes will run for four questions after they have been introduced.
6. If the other teams feel a need for another hint, they will have to DONATE the amount equal to the number of their team members to PTS. After confirmation by one of the game-masters, the questioning team will PM the hint to the donating team.
7. Any further details will be introduced later as the need arises.
8. Be fair - NO CHEATING! - and have fun!

“Want to make out?”
“With who?” she asks, not bothering to look up.
“Me.”
She lifts her head from her book just long enough to give me a once-over. “No, thanks,” she says, then goes back to her homework.
She’s fuckin’ with me. She’s got to be fuckin’ with me, right?
“Because of that pendejo Tuck?”
“No. Because I don’t want Madison’s leftovers.”
Wait. Un. Momento. I’ve been called a lot of things before, but . . .
“You callin’ me leftovers?”
“Yeah. Besides, Tuck is a great kisser. I wouldn’t want you to feel bad when there’s no way you can compete.”
That guy hardly owns a pair of lips. “Wanna bet?”



I guess Chemistry is just another word for love.

It's cheating.

The girl has never been able to carry a child to term even after several tries and is 'broken'. So she turns to someone else for comfort, turning the three lives into a mess in this 'broken love story'.

Five letters, two vowels.  Girl/Married woman can't get pregnant and/or keeps losing the kid. Then comes this guy, who is her boss' son. They have an affair and the husband finds out. And the girl gets pregnant. (<- And seriously, that is the complete story, I think.)

"No, there ain't nothing, dearie. You'll just need to be patient awhile, and then you'll be all right. Put your head up agin me like that, and then you'll feel bullier. It ain't easy to talk when your lips is like leather, but I guess I'd best let you know how the cards lie. What's that you've got?"
"Pretty things! fine things!" cried the little girl enthusiastically, holding up two glittering fragments of mica. "When we goes back to home I'll give them to brother Bob."
"You'll see prettier things than them soon," said the man confidently. "You just wait a bit. I was going to tell you though—you remember when we left the river?"

He pulls a face at me as he picks up a small replica of a woman’s pelvis with a cabbage patch doll’s head stuffed through the middle. It’s such a light-hearted thing, such an innocent moment, that I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at how little of these moments we’ve actually had together since he figured out who I was. I decide to go with laughing, and I have to cover my mouth with my hands to stop from sounding like the hysterical pregnant lady.

Two more to kill.

Another hint:
"He killed my father. I’m having his baby.

He killed my father. I’m having his baby.

Those two sentences are on repeat in my head, the agony of the rolling waves almost too much for me to bear."
