Behold: the quarterfinals of the Rooster.
The Rooster feasts! The quarterfinals begin in the 2018 Tournament of Books, presented by Field Notes.
Our story thus far: editor Drew Barrymore, who has been in an on-again, off-again relationship with reporter Vince Vaughn, is friends with copy editor Keira Knightley (who is smitten with sportswriter Matthew McConaughey)—that is, until a night of tequila shots.
Dismayed at the idea of collaborating with Vince, Drew needs cheering up. McConaughey orders the shots. A new episode in our fanfic series.
Vince and Drew’s romance fizzles when he begins stalking her neighbor. And back at CM HQ it’s reflecting poorly on his work, while everybody else is busy filming segments for their new website.
Staff changes are announced at the world’s most famous magazine, and Drew is handed the axe and told to swing it.
In a world where everyone is famous, who’s going to do the reporting? Working at a glossy is never easy—especially not with this cast. The first installment in a new series.
