    Hello, welcome!

    We recently started and finished our "The Naked Time" over in the TOS forum!

    After each completed thread, we're randomly picking someone who participated to choose the next episode we do. The lucky winner this time around was LeadHead! Somehow this has happened a lot lately, if it happens again, I'll have to start passing. Never had to do that, the numbers usually hate me! However, I have chosen "I Purgatory's Shadow/By Inferno's Light" to be our next Line-by-Line challenge!

    For any unfamiliar with our "game," you are asked to post only a single line (defined as one character speaking without interruption by another character) per message. You can post as often as you like, but someone else must post a line in between your posts.

    Our "rule" is that if the episode has a "To Be Continued..." on the end, it is done in a single thread, but if it's just an arc of related episodes, each episode is a separate thread.

    As before, at the conclusion of this thread, my Backup Singer, CoveTom :) will pick someone at random from among all the participants to choose the next episode we do.

    All right, lets see what the Dominion is up to this time...

    Kira enters Odo's Quarters carrying a box, there's some reorganizing going on.

    Kira: Where do you want me to put this?

    (Great choice! I'm actually surprised this wasn't done already)

    KIRA: I bet you can't wait to get all this put together so you can start shape-shifting around the room again.

    ODO: I suppose. Though I did enjoy sleeping in a bed.

    Kira: There's nothing to stop you from sleeping in a bed if you want to.

    ODO: Except that now when I'm asleep I tend to revert to my gelatinous state and slide onto the floor. No, the bed goes. I'm a changeling, not a solid. There's no use pretending otherwise.

    KIRA: I guess we can put all this in storage. What about these PADDS? Finding and Winning your Perfect Mate by Doctor Jennings Rain?

    ODO: I'll take that. I thought I was going to be a humanoid for the rest of my life. There were certain things..

    Kira: You are a solid 18 hours a day. I'm sure there are plenty of women on this station who'd be very interested in you, if you gave them the chance.

    ODO: I'll keep that in mind, Major. Right now I'd be satisfied just getting this room in order.
