Legal Theft (or the legal theft that you will see here) began as a challenge between two friends and bloggers: Gwen of Apprentice, Never Master and Bek of BuildingADoor. The two would write an original fiction piece then send the other the first line of that piece, the challenge being for the other to write, without seeing the original, a piece of their own. The two pieces, the original and the one written with the stolen line, would be posted on their respective blogs so that they could be compared and marveled at by the writers and readers. After nine weeks of legal thefting from each other, Gwen and Bek asked several of us, including myself, to their gang. Legal theft is due every Saturday.
The Band of Thieves:
Right now, legal theft is on hiatus, though Machete Diplomacy continues to post fantastic fiction pieces. The archives, December 2012-February 2018, of our legal thefts can be found here.
