    New challenge coming up by the end of the weekend - sorry to keep you all waiting. I'm catching up with my private messages, story comments and, outside of the fanfic universe, job opportunities and lots of overdue cleaning.

    Challenge #6 - Fairy Tale...IN SPACE!!!

    Okay, time for another ...IN SPACE challenge. This time, we will be transfering the famous fairy tales from all over the world to the Galaxy far, far away. You're allowed to take it any way you want to, make it dark, make it light; knock yourself out on tropes. Do whatever you want, as long as the essence and the moral of the story remain the same.

    Before we start, I have to thank Findswoman and Raissa Baiard who helped me pick the fairy tales.

    And yes, yes, I know that the L/M thread had a similar challenge some years ago.

    Schedule

    You have ten weeks to respond to the challenge if you want your entry to be entered into the voting. The deadline to post your story is November 28th, 2017 at 15:30 Central European Time (check the world clock) - precisely ten weeks from the date and time of this announcement.

    The voting will be open from sometime on November 28th 2017 until the corresponding time on December 12th 2017. The winner(s) will be announced later that day or on December 13th, when the next challenge will be up, too. No colours, but you get the bragging rights and that's got to count for something! ;)

    How to play?

    - Throw a 15-sided die or use the random number generator to pick a number from 1 to 15. The latter only applies if you have problems throwing the dice. I have included a handy guide on how to throw the dice at the very end of this post, complete with illustrations.

    - If you get a number that's already been claimed, roll again! I will do my best to cross out the taken numbers, but I can't be here all day long.

    - If you were rolling the dice, don't forget to edit the post to include your results. As in, don't leave them as dice only - people using Tapatalk won't be able to see them.

    - At this point, we're doing one story per person. You are, of course, welcome to write a story inspired by this challenge and its prompts at any given point, ever.

    - NSWFF stories are more than welcome, despite the "...IN SPACE!" part. ;)

    - TOS apply, just like for any other challenge. TL;DR: we're not writing bloodbaths and PWP, but your stories can be family-unfriendly elsewhere, as long as they're edited for this board.

    - Once you're done, post a link to your story in this thread. Please, if you can, use the URL and not the LINK tag, once again because the latter does not work on some mobile clients.

    - You're not obliged to read the other participants' stories, but it's recommended. Be a good sport. :) I will, of course, read them all, since I'm the thread host.

    Appendix: Throwing the Dice

    To throw the dice, you will have to be logged in on your computer OR using the full version of the boards on your mobile device. Reply to this thread and, once the page has loaded, you will see an option to throw the dice underneath your post. Clicking the link should open a modal window where you will then select a ten-sided die.

    Images showing how to do this are under the spoiler.

    Can't throw a die to save my life (yes I'm stupid, hold it against me!). So I got the random number generator...and I got confused.

    Okay so I did something....I think...I don't know...whatever...

    Well, I did throw something, and the number 9 came up, so I guess that works?

    Edit: I got Beauty and the Beast. So I can make this dark, right?

    Hooray another chance at a cool, potentially inspiring prompt! All right, rolling now...

    And it looks like I have... Aladdin!

    Yes, you can. And I can't wait to read it. :D

    Findswoman and Raissa Baiard asked me if they could trade their numbers - I have decided to allow them to do so, but that they pull out of the competition in return. They will still be allowed to vote in the challenge. :)

    This time, this roulette, will be different from all those others. I will be instantly inspired to write!

    And I received 06: The Little Mermaid. Okay. It's an OTP where one person ends up with someone else and the other one dissolves into foam.

    I am going to give this a go, though I'm not sure if I'm able to write yet.

    EDIT: I got "Princess Who Never Smiled".

    I'm going to drop out of this one. The story idea that I had developed does not fit with the specific themes or characters of Beauty and the Beast.
    Someone else can do this story better justice, I'm sure. :)

    LOL I used the random generator and got #12. [face_thinking] [face_laugh] Rapunzel in @Findswoman's hands will be incredibly interesting. :cool:

    Eh, what the heck. Count me in too. I may or may not actually get anything written before the deadline, but it'll be fun to see what kind of bunnies I come up with.


    And I got #13 - Puss In Boots.

    Hmm. I'm gonna have to let that one stew a while.
