There are still verses left in the linkback poems "Testing the Metal," "Dangerous Refuges," "The Marble and the Sculptor," "Picking Up the Litter," and "The Golden Peaches of Peace."  Linking to this page will reveal new verses in whichever poem you request.

"Fears You Never Knew Existed"

Continuing the second prompt is "The Form of Every Virtue."  Turq accompanies Ansel to the police station to help plan the raid on Mr. Dipper.

"Hacking Out the Answers"
This inspired the free-verse poem "Hacking Out the Answers."  When a virus shuts down the ciphernet, Armelle has a meltdown.  Shuttlecock knows how to handle meltdowns.

"How to Get It Out"
From a DW prompt I wrote "How to Get It Out."  Shiv quietly freaks when invited to jam with a band, even though it's after hours.
