    Nah, I think that's a fine date. I have a birthday in January, so it's still the holiday season to me.

    I'm not sure what happened to my reply (mayhaps I forgot to click on "Post Reply" :p ), but here I go trying it again.

    Any day is good for shenanigans, holiday or no. [face_mischief]

    I hope you're feeling better now. [:D]

    Well, I'm into the 10th day of not being well, but it's only a slight cough now, which is a lot better than it was at the start (couldn't get out of bed).

    So, it's about time to have another challenge! My idea of having a new one every either weeks kind of fell flat on its face, which is a shame, but there we go. Also, next year, I'll be more on the ball and have one ready to be posted the Monday before November starts, or at least have it saved ready for posting rather than finding time to write the post! But it's here!

    The Challenge!!

    So, it's that time of year when families get together and spend time together and give gifts. It's all a bit much for me as I can't cope well with social situations, but I hear that other people enjoy it. It's also great for some non-romantic mush too. Because the date is late January, I thought I'd open it up to be a bit more generic, so here it is:

    Holidays and Family!

    It can be any kind of holiday you want and it can be about any kind of family you want too. It is always optional so your entry could have neither in it.

    The Date!!

    Not as early as I would have liked, but it's still six weeks away, and that's the usual length of time.

    The 21st of January!

    I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

    Indexing

    I'm looking into options for indexing the fics. This is by no means a small task so it might take a while. The question is, what do you folks want from an index? I'll be doing it by challenge as before, but would you want me to keep it offline and available on request, or would you want it online but off-site? At the moment I'm wary about updating the thread index as it will probably be undone once the post cropping has been fixed. So, what do you want, and what do you think will work best?

    Icon

    I'm taking submissions for a new icon. If you want to submit one, post it here or PM it to moosemousse and there will be a poll. Prizes to be announced.

    Oh boy oh boy oh boy, I already started plotting this one up. Should be interesting to see what I can do with my usual set of characters...

    Just one more week to get that lovely mush written and checked and ready for posting! Who's excited? Who forgot? Who'll be leaving it until the last minute?

    I'll admit it... I forgot! *hides face* But hopefully I still have time to think of something!

    Can I make a suggestion? If you change the title bar that says something like "New Challenge Due January 21st" more people may see/remember. If for some reason you can't change it, let me know.

    I haven't forgotten, but haven't written anything for it yet.

    I'm thinking of doing a story with Cleigg/Shmi & Owen/Beru all having a holiday dinner with Beru's family.

    I admit. I forgot about it. And this week is going to be busy, so I'll see what I can slap together at the last minute.

    Oh. Darn. I had no idea there was a new challenge up :( I would have totally done something. I could probably do a last minute thing, but I have a research proposal due that day :_|

    Please try to remember to update the thread title (you can do that with old threads, right?) so that I can see when the next challenge is up.

    Can I pretend that a story I posted was actually for this challenge? [face_sneaky]

    I hadn't changed it because I thought they were going to fix the truncated post problem quicker than they are and I didn't want to have to change it again. [face_blush] I'll change it from now on, and I apologise for any inconvenience.

    It shouldn't have any effect on the subject, though I suppose it is possible. It's no worries, just thought it might help!

    Today's the day! I hope you've all got plenty of mush for me! I'm going to try something different this time. Instead of using the index in the first few posts, I'm going to index them in their own post. This means you'll get an index straight away and I won't have to hunt through the thread to update the index when the truncated posts problem has been fixed. I'll index them tomorrow or Wednesday.

    Oh, and a teaser for the next one. I have it sorted and it falls on the birthday of a legend who died recently. It'll be related to his field of work.

    The only thing I got accomplished this week was drawing more sketch cards. [face_plain]

    Do we have a new challenge for the 28th? Or is the one for 21st still ongoing?
    An even better question is whether this is still ongoing? Because since the post was truncated, I can't find the MMMs for more recent times.
    Also, Mush is describing romantic scenes without going into details such as way too much information, right?
    And it doesn't have to be Luke/Mara, does it?

    Oh, there's no challenge for the 28th. The way this works is that I put up a challenge and give it a specific date. Only fics posted on that date can be tagged with 'MMM' but you can post mush at any time.
    I will keep doing challenges, so don't worry about that. I have one that'll go up on Monday.
    Mush can be anything that makes you feel mushy. It doesn't have to be romantic, and non-romantic mush is always welcome.
    And no, it can be anyone you want. Just as long as you abide by the ToS, so that means no romantic Luke/Han mush.

    Er . . . so what exactly is mushy? [face_thoroughly_confused]

    Considering my first foray into mush may as well have been a soap opera sex scene without the sex... and the second foray was just friendly stuff... Obviously I still need to figure out what "mush" is. :p
