After discussing it with Rosey, I plan on participating myself, though I won't be judged due to unfairness or complications. I don't like complicated things.

@EKK15 --> Could you unlock that pad to be public so we can view it, please? I imagine very few people outside our club will view this thread, so your work will be safe. And let me know if you'd like a walkthrough on how to unlock it!

Will this do? the unyielding man
S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
a persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma per ciò che giammai di questo fondo
non tornò vivo alcun, s'i' odo il vero,
senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo.

Inferno, Canto 27, l 61-66.

The subject is a catalyst, a character, but our responsibility is, has to be, to the work."

Here's the wfp for now but I can publish it if you like. Barely edited it from that weirdo post on the club wall so we'll see how well this all goes in comparison to the rest.
