This is not a story full of dramatic incident; it is in fact rather understated -- and probably all the better for it. The intrigue comes from the carefully drawn characters, the attention to detail, and the care with which the story is told.

This time around, we’re going to hit more piñatas by swinging around the invitation for TWD 3rd collection. That means you, candy boy and lollipop girl — and you too, [preferred-gender pronoun] chocolate covered almonds. I want to see your fiction ooze out paper maché blood; I want your poetry to cry cardboard tears; heck, I’ll take that photo of a once whole piñata to show what once was. So you like visuals in your story? Paint me a scene of the Piñata’s birth home as you describe to me the color of its mother’s tissue paper skin. I want to show what you’ve got because I know you’ve got something to show. Just so you’re clear, It doesn’t have to be about a piñata, but if you’re feeling inspired, go for it — show me what you’ve got.
