Challenge NameThe Orb of--Argon?
Challenge TypePersonal Challenge
Category Literature > Fantasy
DescriptionThe gang used the "Orb of Dagon" to weaken Glory during the battle at the end of "The Gift". Instead, make a change and have the orb be the "Orb of Argon," or actually the "Eye of Argon". In fact, tell the story in the same way the original fantasy story by Jim Theis, "The Eye of Argon," tells it.

A famous game at sf conventions is to see who can read the story aloud without laughing, crying, or falling on the floor the longest. The Wikipedia article is at For the full effect, write your story using the original story's standards of spelling and grammar, ignoring TtH's rules:

"Only after you have kissed the fleeting stead of death, wretch!" returned Grignr.

Perhaps your story will be read at BtVS conventions for the next 40 years.
