I figured I’d post the plan on the Board as well so it doesn’t get lost in chat.
The way these work is that, at the appointed time, we all take half an hour to just write something. Typically, this was done with a prompt that got revealed when the Write-Off started, but I figured we could change things up a bit and jsu Nova’s list instead to see how that goes.
Afterwards, we go around and take turns posting what we wrote and reviewing each other’s work.
If you can’t make the time (especially on this one), there’s no problem with doing the writing at some other time.
Ooh, neat! by

After no one responded in February (including me), I thought you weren't doing this. I'll try to get to it!

I still frequent the Discord pretty often, so I can give the folk there a heads-up. Might try one of these myself while I'm at it, provided I find the right time and motivation.
Hazama Takeo and Mitsuki had no daughter, but they celebrated Doll Festival all the same. It would be a waste not to display the hina doll set they had, a treasured Hazama family heirloom. Crafted by the famed Andō clan, it was an outstanding work of Kyoto craftsmanship: a full seven-tier set, every doll from the Emperor and Empress down to the three officials minutely carved and painted and clad in fine textiles, accompanied by furniture lacquered and gilded. Though passed down many generations, the doll set remained as new.
However, there was yet a more important reason for the celebration: the couple's son was fascinated by the elegance of hina dolls and blooming peach blossoms, the colours of chirashizushi and puffed rice. It was what truly mattered.
