  1. EVERYTHING STOPPED AND THEGOREYBEAST HOWLED. THE FAIRYTALEFRIDISTAS HAD MOSTLY GLOMPED OFF TO EDINBURGH. THOSE THAT REMAINED WERE DIPPING THEIR FINGERS IN ENDLESS COFFEES AND DAUBING NONSENSE ON THEIR BEDSHEETS, TRYING TO STAY AWAKE, TRYING TO STAY ALIVE...
  2. SEPTEMBER 2014. THERE WAS DEVASTATION EVERYWHERE: GOONS AND HE-GOONS WERE SLAMMING WORDS TOGETHER LIKE TROGLODYTES TRYING TO MAKE FLAT-PACK FURNITURE; IN THE DISTANCE A BABOONICORN CRIED; PEN-WIELDING WOOKIES AND SHAKESPEARE JOURNALISTS FOUGHT MERCILESSLY FOR SCRAPS OF PAPER IN THE PROSEDOME. SO MUCH INK WAS SPILT...
    BUT IN THE DISTANCE ROSE A PLUME OF DUST: ACCELERATING IMPOSSIBLY ON A GIRAFFE MADE OF SONNETS RODE THE STORYBEAST. HE SCATTERED INSPIRATION LIKE SO MANY SHINY DOUBLOONS, PELTING THE MUSE-LESS PEASANTS AS THEY SQUEALED IN DELIGHT. WITH A WHIPPING OF HIS PAPYRUS CLOAK HE STOMPED A DAINTY LOUBOUTIN INTO THE DUST AND ROARED "LET THERE BE SOME PEOPLE WRITING ABOUT 500 WORDS ABOUT ANOTHER WORD AND THEN POSTING IT ON TWITTER, TIME PERMITTING THAT IS."

    AH, THAT FAMILIAR CLARION CALL...
  3. AND THE BEASTS SCRABBLED THROUGH THE ARCHIVES TO FIND THE MYTHICAL ENTRIES OF YESTERMONTHS.
  4. AND NEW ENTRIES BEGAN TO JOIN THEM!
  5. BABOONICORN EVEN DID AN ILLUSTRATION, BECAUSE HE'S CLEVER LIKE THAT:
  6. MEANWHILE MORE ENTRIES POURED IN!
  7. WHAT A COLLECTION OF INFURIATINGLY TALENTED LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! I DON'T ENVY WHOEVER HAS TO JUDGE AN ARBITRARY WINNER FROM THIS LOT! *gazes flatly at @thestorybeast, cocks an eyebrow*
  8. SO THERE YOU HAVE IT! OUR MAGNIFICENT CHAMPION HAS SELECTED A WORD! "OXYMORON" IT IS!
    SEE YOU NEXT TIME FOR ANOTHER DRAMATIC #FAIRYTALEFRIDAY!
