Tie a red ribbon - quickly

Another short notice post - sorry! For this one there's $100 on offer for a shortish (3-5,000 word) story with a 'romantic, psychological or erotic twist' which uncovers taboos. The advice is to 'Make it weird', oh and you need to get the end of the world in there somewhere too.

My photographic collection doesn't include anything truly appropriate, but one name for this weird, red plant is 'love-lies-bleeding'. Close enough?

    1. The name is prettier than the plant, I think - until birds come and eat the seeds, then it's really lovely.

  2. I doubt I could write something that weird.

    1. It's good to know the limits to one's weirdness, Alex.

  4. Oh dear, that begs the question: Am I weird enough to write weird? Hmmmm a few family members might say so :) but, I don't think so.
