Author has written 4 stories for Skins.
^one story that's right, but what a story it's going to be^
Hello ladies and probably gentlemen, lords and ladies, boys and girls.
So you might be thinking what the hell is this Predators and Prey thing then. Well sit back and let me tell you a story...
It all started on Twitter, as these things do, when an ardent Skins reader; let's call her Vangoghhgurrl, decided it might be a good idea to set some of the writers on here a little challenge. Vangoghgurrl, you see, had written a little start to a story that some of us liked and wanted her to go on writing; but she had a bigger idea.
"Let's turn this into a Naomily round robin" she said to everyone's general bemusement. "Oh come on guys," she said, "you know a story round robin, with all you Naomily writers, come on it'll be fun."
And it all sort of snowballed from there and now you find us posting our stuff here under the orders of Generalissimo Vangoghgurrl.
It's a simple idea and these are the rules we're following, simple as they are:
1. Each author gets one chapter to write, and the order is randomly picked from the 'hat of destiny'. It will stick at one chapter unless we decide to go around the authors again. But this will of course be dependent on authors interest, audience interest, numbers of people that tell us to keep going and of course any significant storyline developments that we want to continue with.
2. We only get around 500-600 words per chapter, no excuses, no pressure.
3. The next author in the list will only see the previous chapter when you do; our challenge is to write things our way, whilst trying to keep the plot moving and at the same time keep the storyline flowing smoothly.
4 We don't do requests, we know people like to tell writers what they would like to see happen, but that spoils the surprise element for us and for you, so thanks but no thanks.
So that's it for the rules, I guess you'd like to know who'll be contributing to this mad idea? Yes? Well ok then, in no particular order.

Oh did I mention we have a guest writer as well, say hello to Heather Anne Hogan who's offered to write a slot for this epic adventure, (no pressure on the rest of us then!).
Hold on to your hats people, this might just be a bumpy ride; we hope you have as much fun reading, as we will writing.
