Friday Flash 55.....



Legend has it...
If a Mortal sheds the blood of a Loup Garou.
The beast reverts to it's human form,
and must reveal it's secret!
The Mortal then becomes a Loup Garou for 101 days.
If the encounter is mentioned aloud,
they are cursed FOREVER!!
Loup Garou changes at will,
unrestricted by the Lunar Cycle...

.

(Loo Gair-Roo)...Bayou Folklore.
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment...Then BOOK!!
So from the most Howling Host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

Lesson #1: don't be bitin' on dem wolfies! Great tale from the bayou, G.

Brian’s fifty-five sizzlin’ words are right here.

… and mine is up, here.

And thanks, G-Man. You set the bar really damn high when it comes to visiting each and every one who participates here and sharing a personal, thoughtful comment on their post. It makes Friday 55 the absolute best meme around, as far as I’m concerned.

Glad to be here!

Titanium said...

Yahtzeeeeeee!!

Stranger said...

Ooh, the art looks like something out of a D&D creature manual -- nice. And I like any folklore. I want to hear more from the Bayou.

I'm playing this week! You can find mine here.

Happy Weekend, G!

dustus said...

Bayou Folklore—first time for me reading any. Very cool 55. And thanks also for hosting, G. I'm in.

Call Her Nike

Jannie Funster said...

So, how many days ya got left on the 101, G-Man? Wait. We must not talk of this.

I was never here.

Mine will be up early Friday morninghere.

Monkey Man said...

Where is the wolf in that story? Regardless, sounds like a Bayou badass.

My 55 is HERE.

snowelf said...

Are you sure this is fiction? ;)

Wishing you beautiful weather this weekend. Have you been out golfing yet???

Brian Miller said...

thanks Ti...late break from kissing the dummy...err...i am in CPR class...

no i know a few g...actually saw a couple in that new moon movie and that makes it real so...smiles.

Titanium said...

Brian, we don't say "kissing the dummy" and "Ti" in the same sentence.

It just ain't right, man.

*grins*

Ti is back to her old tricks of being first.

I know to stay clear of those beasties 101 days out of the week or was that year?

I could make a whole book out of something like this.

Millie said...

So scary! Those myths have a way of being real. My human has a 55 here. http://razzamadazzle.wordpress.com/2011/04/14/eyes-2/

Elaine said...

Sorry...my 55 is "Girl on a String" not "Burning Words" and I've got no idea how to permalink to the comment box!

gautami tripathy said...

I love folklores! I will definitely check it out. Thanks to you!

Here is mine:

hedgewitch said...

I've made a few wolves bleed in my time, but they never seemed to change form,just ran off whistling and howling after someone else.

I'll be up tomorrow, my furry phantasmic friend--thanks for running this pop stand every week.

Awww...let's try that again, logged in under the right identity...

Hope you aren't speaking from experience, G. I'd hate to think you might be eternally cursed. Must be damn hard typing 55's with paws... ;)

So I’m up. I’ve had bad luck with the hyperlinks as of late, but let’s give it a try. If all goes well, you will find mine HERE

Serena said...

NOW I know what's wrong with some of the folks who've had me pulling my hair. So, the Loup Garou -- what's the cure for getting its curse to last less than 101 days?

Lisa said...

Tough post for me.

Mr. Know-It-All has tasked me
For 55 words exactly
A sprint of sort
My words contort
Write whatever I see

My muse however has left me
A fickle friend you must agree
No address was left
Leaving me bereft
This is my insanity plea
My words though they are awkward
Will simply have to do

My evil muse is a $&*@(.

Janna said...

Note to self: Never move to the bayou.
Unless I'm feeling bitchy.
:)

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

TALON said...

Ohhhh...secrets! Now I'm dying of curiosity...what sort of secret does a Loup Garou carry? Yeah, if I get near one, I'm totally gonna end up one :)

Awesome 55, Galen!

My 55: Broken Calm

Amropali said...

Moral of the story: Be careful not to shed the opponent's blood in a fight.

So much for my dream of being in a real fight some day!

Happy weekend to you to G-man.

I'm playing again this week but it won't go live till the mornin'. I did a much lighter non-political one this time. :)

libraryscene said...

music inspired, of course... As always, fabulous hosting and postin, G-Man ~ you rock!

Katherine said...

Hey G-Man ... sorry I haven't been by in while, I've been burning the candle at both ends but I'm back. I have written a 55 today. Your 55 is way cool! The stuff great horror movies are made of! Werewolves, transformation, lunar cycles & curses ... Creepy!! Have a great weekend Gman!!!

I've taken some time to read these Flash 55's ... looks like we were both captured by the French!!! Yours may be more frightening than mine.

Somehow when you pronounce it the French way, it sounds like a little old man.

Don’t let addiction take over your life. You can get alternative sentencing and avoid jail time. This can make a big difference in your recovery and the rest of your life.
