    Congratulations and bravissima to Lexi! Very well done! =D=

    And Sabyne did an excellent job too. :)

    As to the questions: I'm neither here or there on themed requirements—sure, they could be fun, but I'm fine without them too. And I'm all for trying to make the judging as anonymous as possible—in fact, that's something I'd been wondering about. Though would we then have to have the four participants sign up via PM also (instead of here in this public thread) in order to maintain that anonymity? Put another way, is there a way this can be done so that the judges don't know the names of the participants either?

    (Of course, we might only be able to take this so far, since character names and certain situations can sometimes be a giveaway as to who wrote the piece. But that's not to say that we can't try for as much anonymity as possible.)

    Weee! Thanks! I really enjoyed this challenge. Great way to exercise the muse.



    I think pm'ing is a great idea, though I'm not sure about the themed idea. The randomness of the prompts is the best part (for me), I don't think I'd like feeling guided in a certain direction with them.

    Congratulations Lexi @};-

    1. Themed requirements -- I think in a series of let's say four prompts, if a holiday or event was upcoming during the challenge, one or two prompts could be included but also left somewhat open-ended.

    E.g., near Independence Day, two prompts could be fireworks and an annual celebration of historic relevance, i.e., Endor Day LOL

    2. Anonymity via numbers sounds a cool idea. It could be tried for a round or two and if it seems too cumbersome, go back to the original form.

    Or V-E Day - Victory over the Empire Day [face_laugh][face_flag]

    The number idea is interesting, we could run it through a few paces certainly.

    Yeah, per Nyota's Heart and Anakin Solo Revanchist; there could be one or two "leading" prompts for such occasions, but you don't want to railroad the contestants so harshly. Iron Chef has theme ingredients, but they don't tell you how to use them...

    I like the idea of anonymity. It would allow readers and judges to go in blind and pick based on the story itself and eliminating the potential bias, should there be a fan-favorite writer in the midst.

    Thank you Sabyne. I don't think it will be too bad, so for the next round, we'll give the numbers a try.

    Thank you everyone for your feedback. I do appreciate it :)
