This Week's Ten Word Challenge is: galaxy, delta, redecorate, dearth, offshoot, Uther Pendragon, cordial, gingerbread, foretold, bonnet
And for the Mini Challenge: palliate, functionality, jungle, brass, asphyxiate
Once again, I've mashed them all into one paragraph and this time, tried to include them in the order posted on Raven's blog. Not as easy as I thought...
Mere mention of his name is enough to generate a wave of excitement rocketing through the galaxy with enough delta-V to redecorate the heavens with his presence. The dearth of happiness an offshoot of his reputation, for unlike his father, Uther Pendragon, Arthur was known to be anything but cordial. A gingerbread man, running from victory to foretold victory, defeat unable to catch him, but always close on his heels-a bee in his bonnet. One might be tempted to palliate his actions, as necessary in times of war, pass off his viciousness as an asset, Some distorted functionality that allows him the role as lord of the jungle, an extension of the brass balls that put him at the head of this vast army. With a chokehold on the known world, he begins to asphyxiate the population.
