Two or more genre characters share a pizza, and nothing happens.
I want to keep it pretty simple, but I guess some definitions might be in order:
: Because one genre character really can't "share" a pizza, natch.
: Superheroes, occult investigators, what-have-you. New characters, old favorites-- the only requirement is that they be characters who usually do more in a story than share a pizza.
: Because, "slice".
: "Nothing happens" in terms of genre conventions/traditional plot development: no one attacks the pizzeria, the delivery boy isn't turned into a death weapon, etc. Plenty can happen in terms of characterization, dialogue (which could certainly be *about* genre stuff), and damn fine writing.
Remember, remember, the fifth of November... because that's the deadline. :-)
