    Oh I don't mean anything extreme. Best way I can explain it is by definition for the word:

    5.
    to squeeze or crush; crunch: to mush all the candy together in a sticky ball.

    Oh, I see. That's not the definition we use. This is all about romance and warm fuzzy feelings.

    Okay. Just wanted to make sure exactly what you guys were looking for.

    I'd suggest looking through the archives but the links are for the old boards. It's not hard to fix but it's a hassle. All Monday Mush Mania fics have 'MMM' in the title so you can look through the fanfic boards for that, which might be easier.

    Of course there are some situations that are easier to write mush for, but I think having a challenge to put mush in unexpected situations. Though my definition of mush isn't necessarily romantic... anything where characters can express any form of love, be it familial, friendship, or romantic is what I call mush... so the broadened definition makes it easier to fit in.

    Hm... mush with a violent nature though... starts contemplating.

    Violent mush... I've written a mush story with violence and zombies in it and everything but the sex. So, violence and mush can work well. Though, I'm still not sure what I'll do for this challenge...

    Oh, btw, that secondary challenge to keep it under 10,000 characters... is that with or without spaces?

    With spaces. I think posts were truncated with spaces counting as a character so I'll go with that.

    And to clarify, yes, mush doesn't have to be romantic. Family mush is great as is just friends mush. I'm not sure I can think of violence as being mushy though, but if you want to prove me wrong then please do.

    It could work if that's how the characters expressed their love. e.g. Yuuzhan Vong. XD walks away slowly from that

    Anyway I got an idea for this, just need to figure out how to fit the challenge into it.

    Squeezing and crushing? Now that is an interesting way of looking at mush. [face_thinking] But as has already been said, Monday Mush is more of the ooey-gooey sentimentality variety.

    I'm all for mushing all the characters together in a sticky ball.

    Y'know, we've never had Yuuzhan Vong mush before. I don't know enough about them to write it myself, but I'd be interested in reading it.

    I'm not sure what I'll be doing either, but there's plenty of time. I'm tempted to make some new OCs for the challenge, it'd certainly add an extra bit of newness to it. [face_thinking]

    Glad to see a new MMM challenge up! I'll have to see what I can do and get it written before NaNoWriMo starts. :D


    We were told 10,000 by the guy from IGN, but it does seem like less on some posts. Luckily, post-move posts aren't affected by this cause that might make for some short stories. ;)

    Hm. Last night, I was looking through some unfinished vignettes I wrote before I started on the Dear Diary Challenge, and one of them seems usable. Though, if I use it, it'll end up being more of the friendly mush type, which is fine by me. I need to be in a certain mood to write the steamier side of mush. ;)

    @mavjade: I'm glad it's back too. What with my ill health and the move it's been far too long!

    This is true. I often have bouts of silliness, and this was one of them. It's like some sort of time warp challenge, knowing your post will be cut off at a character limit so limiting it to make sure it doesn't get cut off as if this was posted before the move. Or something.

    Yes, I'm weird, I know I'm weird, so let's all dance! [face_dancing]

    @TrakNar: Any kind of mush is good here! Some of my mush has been friendly mush, and it's always good to have variety.

    And now, [face_coffee]

    [face_tee_hee] CmdrMitthrawnuruodo and TrakNar, you both have inspired me. Watch out November 5th. [face_tee_hee]

    Oh my, and my son has added fuel to the fire... beware of flying carrots.

    I got something written but then i totally forgot about the "new" part of the challenge. Now I have to figure out how to add that in without it feeling forced. *bangs head*

    Oh yeah, that's right, the "new" part. Well, the old story that I'm thinking of using will be new to you guys! :p Though, its underlying themes pertain to new something, so I guess it'll still work.

    I'd like to point out that the challenge, as always, is optional. If you can write something that fits it then yay! If not, don't worry about it. Just as long as it's mushy and is posted on the day then it can be counted as Monday Mush Mania! :)
